All observant teachers are.aware of
he effect which the ueeof tobacco has
upon the schoolboys. It is declared by
men of long experience in teaching
that smoking niakes a boy sluggish
and that the' capacity for study is
greatly impaired. Recently investiga-
tions have been made to ascertain the
effect of tobacco upon the physical de-
velopment. The board of health of

We are in the midst of corn plant

working early and late trying to finish
the corn planting that he may get to
his cotton work.
Now notice the corn fields. Most
of them ar in a very rough state, very
little attention piten to the prepara
tion of the land for t his our most val
uable crop. Few fields even have a
harrow dragged over them. The whole
work from breaking to planting is a
hurried job. Little, if any, manure has
been used and as for commercial man
ure, why who would think of using
bought manure in a corn field ?
Take a glance at our cotton fields.
Soil as fine as a garden spot, land has

therefore, more precious and important.
It was a Ibis very convent that the
eminent Russian Biblical scholar Tis

important of Codices of the Bible, un
less the Codrx Vaticanus is as old and
as perfect. It is known among schol

from the Philadelphia lierord that this
latest discovery is sub tan ally com

were fragmentary. The liecord adds
this interesting bit of 'news,. "that the

The .ibove expression is heard very
often by the writer, but we are not
prepared to believe anything of the
kind when young men like Mr. A. T.
Wilson, of this county, by his energy
and -economy, proves to the country.
We jive below a sliort history of Mr.
Wilsou'a experienre iu farming, which
covers a space of over four years :
n 18S8 he rented a piece of land, 17
acres, for which he was to pay $70 as
rent. He had no horse, wagon, or sup
plies to s'tart his little farm. He came
to Mr. Z. T. Terrell and boueht a
horse, wagon, and supplies, for which
Mr. Terrell asked no security but the
man's word. At the end of -the year
Mr. Wilson paid his rnt, all that he
owed Terrell, and had $50 in cash over
nd above all expenses. He then
bought CO acres of land and paid for it
th following vear. This year i' 18931
he bought 40 acres more of land and
paid one I bird oj the money. He has
plenty of corn, meat, and other supplies
to run him and his family until next
anuar-; has tine hogs and coivs, has a
wife and an elderly relative to preride
for. He took out this week a life in
surance policy on himself for the bene
fit of his wife and child, iu c;ise of his
death, for which he paid cash.

Tenn., was struck by Jightning aol

is over $100,000.
