PROFIT SHADING WORKS WELL
Method of Stimulating Interest of Em
ployes In Business Isjlrowlng
Business u formerly conducted on
ployed which became a personal bond
and attached the'worker loyally to the
establishment. This la Impossible
with the giant concerns of today, and
the progressive among them are look
ing to the principle of profit sharing
to Interest the employe in his work.
In England,, where the plan la much
In vogue and tends to become the set
i tied practice, the profit sharing sys
tem Is expected to enable the small
shop or factory to compete, by reason
of the more zealous endeavor of the
employed, with the huge establish
ments; and It seems not unreasonable
that It may have this effect. Many
corporations In our own country have
worked out satisfactory profit sharing
plana, or are experimenting to that
end. A carpet company of Topkers
distributed $85,000 to employes last
year. A big Insurance company has
Inaugurated a retirement pension sys
tem which gives the employe 1 per
cent, of his yearly earnings multi
plied by the number of years of serv
ice. A New England manufacturing
concern, after allowing a liberal re
tarn to capital, gives all its surplus
to lta employes; and various other
plans are being tried. Beyond much
doubt these will become the universal
practice In the future, when the men
whose great ability can make huge en
terprises successful have come to find
the higher pleasure in serving human
Heretofore in world history human
development has been toward Indi
viduality, and this was facilitated by
everything vaWch tended to exalt and
aggrandize si% Up to a certain point
It was necessary and good; but be
yond that, development to the Ideal
type of man Is retarded. It is along
the altruistic, not the egolßtlc, lines
that further progress must be made.
The present disposition of directive
heads of great concerns to serve them
selves first and pass out to others
what remains, If anything, Is Illus
trated by the seven directors of a
large New York company, who vote
themselves each a salary of $30,000 a
year, though the stockholders would
seem to be getting nothing since a de
ficit of $2,000,000 was reported In 1911.
This kind of profit division has always
heretofore been most In evidence, but
will not always be.
Faculty for Managing.
Anyone who has to manage men or
things must be able quickly to bring
order out of confusion. Test your
friend's talent in this respect by writ
ing on your paper five words of a spe
cial class, such as the names of five
flowers, or of five animals, or of five
famous poets, with the first letter al
ways In the right place, while the
order of the other letters Is changed.
The person on whom you are experi
menting knows only to which class
the words belong—whether they are
the names of animals, or of flowers,
or of poets. See how long It takes him
to write the five correct words In
place of the misspelled ones. The ani
mal card may read, "Tetrul, etalenph,
dykeno, serdlp, galliro," and the vege
table card, "Velotl, dlloffad, melap,
moroshuzmi, cuttnesh." Some persons
will be able to read at once: "Turtle,
elephant, donkey, spider, gorilla,"'and
the other card,"Violet, daffodil, maple,
innshroom, chestnut." Others who have
no talent for rearranging the elements
or a confused situation will stare at
the words, unable to make any sense

' LINE OF NORTHERN BOUNDARY
Curious History of United States Ter
ritory That "Overlaps" Into the
Dominion of Canada.
! How did the United Statcß come to
get that small corner of land which
Juts out from the extreme northern
boundary of Minnesota? History of
that little "nose" which stlckfi out into
Canada from Minnesota and which
constitutes the northernmost point of
the United States Is very interesting.
Under the treaty of 1783 boundary be
tween the United States and British
possessions was fixed. A certain point
on the Lake of the Woods was mu
tually agreed to as one starting point,
this being considered the headwaters
of the St. Lawrence river and Great
Lakes system. At that time It was not
known whether this point was north
or south of the forty-ninth parallel,
but it was known to be close to It. The
understanding was that from that
point the boundary should go north or
south to the forty-ninth parallel, as the
case might be. Later and more accu
rate surveys showed that point was
about 25 miles north of the forty-ninth
parallel, and so at this place the
boundary makes a Jog above that line.
Uncle Sam thus has a little piece of
, territory of about 100 square miles In'
j extent north of the general boundary.
And the Joke of it la that any one has
to go by water In order to-reach this
little piece of territory unless he
wants to go through Canada. —The

OLD FORT BUILT BY RUSSIANS
Archeologlst's Explanation of Ruins
of Building on the Northern Coast
Ruins of bulldlngß on the old Weske
I ranch, near Windsor and about thir
teen miles north of Santa Rosa, Cal.,
hitherto unexplained, now are thought
to be the work of people of mechani
cal skill, probably Russians, who
erected the buildings 100 years or
That the edifices were not thcF work
ot the Spaniards Is taken for granted,
as the history of thW country under
Spanish rule is sufficiently complete
to give assurance that some record of
the construction of the buildings
would have been left.
The construction Is too exact to
have been the work of the Indian
races and local Investigators have de
cided that the ruins are those of a
large fort or fortified settlement built
by Russians early In the last cen- 1
The ruins have the appearance of
being parts of a once massive fortlfl- 1
cation. In one place there stands a
part of the wall, twenty feet In height,
thirty feet long, thirty feet thick at
the ground and tapering to a width
of ten feet. It Is built of basalt slabs
about twenty feet In length and Irre
gular prismatic shape.

"Miracle" Quickly Explained.
A good-natured curate, who firmly
j believed that God was continually
| working-miracles to enable him to
i help the needy, and who seldom had
a coin In his pocket, was accosted one
day by a beggar woman. He pleaded
utter lack of money, h,ut on the mendi
cant beseeching blm to search bis
pockets he hopefully put his hand In
one, and to bis amazement and Joy
i found a five-shilling piece there. "An
other ot God's miracles I" be ex
claimed; and then, addressing the
woman: -"This coin belongs to you of
right, • Take It and go in peace.",
Having told the story a few hours
later to his worldly minded parish
priest, and suggested that they should
both go down on their knees and ren
der thanks to God, a strange, unpleas
ont light suddenly broke on the mind
of the shrewd pastor, who exclaimed:
"Good" heavens! Are those my
' breeches that you've on you?"
*_ Value of Labor.
Labor Is a commodity to be bought
•r.d sold notwithstanding the 'maudlin
criticism of Bdtae theorists, writes C.
W. Post In Leslie's. Labor Is not the
man himself, whom I consider a part
of the divine, but labor Is his output
Just the "satoe "hs wheat is the output
of the farmer, and it is i subject for
purchase and sals, and upon Its qua!-
j lty depends its demand and Its value,
i There are two kinds of labor, the one
manual and the other mental. Wbsn
the skilled workman possesses a train
ed mind which directs'his hinds, he
rises 1n valfle, and when he reaches a
plane where hla mind Is so well train
ed that he In turn becomes a creator
and mnst needs devise and direct, he
, then requires' other hands to carry
' out bis Ideas. Then be sgaln rises In
the plane of valve to humanity, and
his compensation mnst keep pace.

PRESIDENT EXPLODED DIKE
Touched a Key In While Houoe That Bet
Off K>|ilimliii Id Panama Canal.
Washington' Dispatch, loth.
The momentary of a key
by the President ol the United
States to-djy sent a flash ol elec
tricity through a continuous tele
graph and eable connection of
4,000 miles setting off a gigantic
blast of dynamite which exploded
the Ottmhoa Dike, the last of the
great physical barriers to water
communication in the Panama »ca
naj. It was an extraordinary feat
of telegraphy, especially planned
for the oumsion. At p/rciselv 2
o'clock this afternoon President
Wilson, simply closing a key at
the White House, sent the current
over land and under sea and a
few seconds later came the mes
sage informing him t'hat the ex
plosion had been successful.
While celebrations on the Pacific
toast were numerous- there wa» no

the wish of Colonel Ooethals that
the government await the actual
opening of the canal. Besides the
wreckage jOf- 1 the Gamboa Dike
there are two earth slides to be
cleared away befors boats ran pas«
from ocean to ocean.
A dispatch from Panama says
3,000 to 4,000 persons from various
sections of the Canal Zone jour
neyed to the scene to witness the
destruction of the»-Wrrter. Com
plete demolition of the dike was
not carried out because of , the
fear that the concussion might
damage the railroad trestllng
crossing the cut near San
locks. The two remaining sec
tions will be dynamited later. The
spectators lined the banks of the
cut, occupying every available
vantage point. As the hour ap
proached when President Wilson
would press the button to explode
the numerous charges of dynamite
in the dike, a hush of expectancy
lull over all. Then suddenly came
muffled roar of the discharge of
1,800 pounds of dynamite which
sent a shower of ruck, mud and
water into the air. It was consid
ered among the local rlynamit ) ex
perts as a remarkably clean ex
plosion. A section of the dike 60
fcef wide was lifted bodily from
its bed and its component pirts
scattered far and wide.
As water began to pour through
the rent made by tha explosion,
whistles were tied down and the
crowd sent up a great che.'r. All
the heads of the canal departments
were present for the epoch making
event. It was Col. Ooethals' day
and the chairman of the Panama
Canal Commission was the recip
ient of a shower of congratula

On the day of their arrival at Or

As he emerged from a wood near

tried to drive him, then set off across
an open stretch of pasture. Reggie,
paying Uttle heed to the beaat and
hlr. ptrsuor, was speeding toward a
mansion be espied before him, when
a shout behind blm made him slacksn

He saw before him an Impending

As be wheeled the girl, seeing her

and rough ground. He gained upon
the bull at every yard, yet when be

Though the girl's back was toward
him, a sudden fear gripped Reggie as

relief, his fear waa confirmed. He
beheld Nan, and releasing for the mo

A CATTLE DISEASE.
• ~" It
Its Cause, Symptoms, Treatment.
Bulletin Dept. Agriculture, Raleigh,
We are beginning to receive re
ports of some disease that spread
over the entire State last fall,
Mycotic Stomatitis, or sore mouth
and feet of cattle. This Is a dis
ease caused by cattle eating feed
containing irritating fungi, which
causes an inflamatory condition jjf
mouth, tongue, nostrils and udder
The disease is the result of the
cattle eating feed containing irri
tating fungi, the fungi is usually
found on the grasses during an
unusually hot, wet season, imme
diately after, heat 'and moisture
being conducive to lta growth.
The first symptom usually notic
ed is a dripping of saliva from
the mouth, inability to graze, slug
gishness of the cattle, a slight
stiffness of gait, and an inlination
to lie down. most -of' the time.
Upon B careful examination, the
mucous membrane would be found
inflamed and red, or, if the dis
ease is progressed tar enough,
small ulcers may b« found. The
first portion usually affected is
dental pad, which-takes the place
of the front teeth In the upper
Jaw, tMs becomes inflamed and
raw, consequently the cattle are
unable to graze, not being able to
cut the grass blades, but could
eat feed already cut. Prom this
point, if not properly treated, the
inflammation will spread until the
entire mouth and tongue are in
'volved, becoming raw, making it
impossible for the cattle to eat
anything. In some cases the outer
portion of the lipß an dnostrils are (
In milk cattle there is a great
decrease in the milk flow, heavy
milkers may completely dry up In
a few days. Small red spots may
be seen on the udder and teats.
A temperature of 10J P. to 197 P.
Is frequently seen. It the feet are
examined carefully small red spots
or ulcers may be seen at the top
of the hoof or between the toes.
If the affected animals arc (in
pasture they should be moved to
some place where they can be
properly treated and fed on bran
mashes, or other easily masticated
food, and given plenty of fresh
water. In each gallon of water
put one teaspoonful of chlorate of
potash. The mouth should be well
washed two or three times a duy
with n three per c."nt. water solu
tion of carboli nccid or creolin or
some other reliable antiseptic.' The
-cattle should be kept in a dry,
clean place, in order to keep the
feet as free from dirt as possible.
The feet should also be washed
several times a day with an anti
septi solution. One of the most
important things is to see that the
cattle get something that they can
eat. If constipated, give a pound
of Epsom salts dissolved in one
quart of warm water. If properly
treated, the loss should not exceed
one or two per cent.
Shortage in the World's Grain Croptj
Atlanta, (la., Dispatch.
Serious shortage exists in the
world's crop of grain for 1913. The
aupply Is nearly 10 per cent, lens
than last year. The total defi
ciency aggregates 1,240 million
bushels of the five grain staples.
This shortage is not made up by
potatoes, the worlds' supply of
which Is no greater than last year,
and 300 million bushels less thin
the worlds' normal potato crop
These amazing conclusions are
indicated by the preliminary re
port upon the world's crops and
the future of prices, prepared by
Orange Judd Southern Fanning of
Atlanta, as ol October Ist. This
authority emphasizes that the four
bread stuffs—wheat, oats, rye and
barley—will probably U 600 mil
lion bushels less this year than in
1912, 70 million bushels less than

THE HEALTH EXHIBIT
To be a Wide-Awake Feature of the
Besides holding the Better Ba
bies Contest at the State Fair, on
October 20th to 25th, tlie State
Board of Health will give its,flrst
general public health exhibit this
year. In this exhibit no attempt
will be made to show how much
has been accomplished or how well
any one department has don;- its
work, but special effort will be
made to show how sanitation may
be made to apply to ■ common
everyday life. Particular attention
will be given to the matter of tu
.beroulosis, flies, and cheap h nne
madc sanitary devices of lill kinds.
Unless all signs fail this will be
one of the most practical educa
tional features at the fair. At
least one demonstrator will bo in
charge at all times., and nd pains
will be spared to thoroughly ac
quaint all visitors with the mean
ing of every piece of exhibit ma
The exhibit promises to be a live
wide-awake feature of the fair.
Any one looking for dry-as-pow
der statistics, etc., will be dlasp
pointed. On the other hand, there
will be 1 iving, moving, working
working models, a free five-act
miniature play, and other features
right up to the minute. If you 1
want the worth of your admission
ticket, don't miss the health exhib
it. It will be next to the Better
No Votes Wanted.
Some one wanted to know "how
y_pu get to vote at the Better Ba
bies Contest at the State Pair."
The State Board of Health wants
to Inform this gentleman, and all
others, for that, matter, that no
votes are wanted and there won't
be any voting done. Pretty faces,
dimples and dainty gowns won't
count either. It is a question of
merit entirely. The babies ate ex
amined by the best judges in the
Old North State, by physicians and
trained nurses, and scored on their
weight, height .measurements and

Cotton Anthragnose or Pink 8011.
The spots on the boll wevil grow
to about one-half inch, are brown,
and covered at a certain Blage
with a pinkish coating. Affected
bolls open prematurely, and the
lint rots or is of. a very inferior
grade. Wet weather favors the
diseahe. The loss sometimes i(i us
much as 75 or even !>0 per cent, of
- It is a fungous disease, and for
tunately does nut spread during a
season, because the reproductive
apores In the pinkish masses are
sticky and depend largely upon
spattering water rather than on
wind for their dissemination. The
disease is carried over winter or
introduced into new localities
chiefly through Internally infect
ed seed that have developed in
slightly affected bolls. No satis
factory seed treatment is known
The fungus may remain alive on
the old stalks during the winter;
and cotton should not be planted
In the same field the ve.tr
unless It has been fall or u inter
plowed to bury the *t ilks.
To avoid the disease do not
plant contaminated seed. Safe
seed of any variety can be
secured from a moderately infect
ed field if it is picked separately
from stalks that have no diseased
bolls,'and that stand a few* feet
away from Infected stalks. If only
a small amount can be secured,
plant it In a special seed plot
from which a large amount of
clean seed can bs had the year fol
lowing. Be careful to hive gins
well cleaned if th y hive been
used for diseased cotton.
Fortunately the diseas • is rather
restricted as yet ; but it is incn-as-
I ing at a dangerous rate. It is
first brought into new localities in
seed grown elsewhere. Growers
are warned not to buy any cotton
seed for planting unless reliably
assured that It is free from dis
ease. Take immediate steps to
free your farm from this disease
by the 'Seed selection method. Get
your neighbors to d o the same.
Full Information about this and
other important farm crop diseases
