Historical associations, we are assured, ; compensate many of those people for the absence of kith and kin. Ex perience, however, has taught me .that the majority of them are as splendidly .indifferent to history and art, too, for the matter of that; unless as it is applied to the decoration of the human form as they are Uo the Rosetta Stone. . The families' that one finds residing in Italy, for 'instance, long since abandoned such foolishness as sight-seeing. ' That useless fatigue is left to the newcomers; the habitues I have - met no more dream of -visiting the Vatican galleries or of reading in the library , of Lorenzo the Magnificent than, they do of settling down seriously to study Italian. One liears, especially in the less expensive little cities, some twaddle about culture; but you may take my word for it, in nine cases out of ten, the real attraction of the place lies in" the fact: that a Victoria can be had for SQ a; month arid a good cook for onetenth that sum. The Century. Mon In tlie United States iBy Max Nordau. i MBITION is nowhere else so general and . so ; boundless as , in America. This is natural, for inno other country is indi vidualism so highly differentiated as in America, or man so full of inborn energy, so rich in initiative, resource, optimism and self-confidence; so little tethered by pedantry, so willing to recognize the value of a brilliant personality, however this may find expression. - - To this it must be" added 'that-in America the instances in which men have risen f roiu the most humble beginnings to the most fabulous destinies are more numerous and striking than anywhere else. A Lincoln who develops from a woodcutter into a President; a Schwab . vi r r o h -1x1-1 t tt fnoc nn n exl n il rlTv o riotr nnn - thintw.ti tta Vina r onl ary of a quarter of a million; a Carnegie who, as a-youth, did not know where to find a shilling -to buy primers, and, as a man in mature life, does not know how to' get rid reasonably and usefully of his three hundred million dollars, must suggest to every woodcutter, every "buttons," every factory apprentice with the scantiest elementary schooling1 the idea that it depends wholly cn himself whether or not he shall tread "in the foot steps of a Lincoln, a Schwab, or a Carnegie, and reach the goal that these celebrities have attained. The Eforatian "Aurea mediocrifas" has nowhere -else so few partisans as in America. "Everybody ahead!" is the National motto. I suppress, intentionally, the second half of the smart sentence. The universal ideal of the American people seems, to be success. The dream i of -success feeds the fancy of the child, hypnotizes the youth, gives the man temerity, tenacity, and perseverance, and only begins to become a matter of indiffer ence under thebering influence of advanced age. "Success, however, is but one of those vague words which mean noth ing definite, but which, like "freedom," or. "progress," are mere recipients tilled by everybody with contents distinctively his own. Success. . ' . 1st lUBMIMMMaMW V SOUTHERN FARM fOTES.

Depew. iT has been my fortune, as business associate in many en terprises, to become intimately acquainted with, hundreds of men, who, without any equipment whatever of educa tion, have accumulated millions of dollars. . I never met with one of them whose regret was not profound and deep and poignant that he had not an education. I never met one of them who did not feel in the pres ence of cultured people a certain sense of mortification I i which no money paid for. I never met one of them who was not prepared to sacrifice his whole fortune that. bis boy should never feel the same mortification. . Our language comes, in part, from the Latin and Greek. Our literature is in itself a sort of Latin and Greek. The man or thewoman who knows Latin and Greek takes ap the paper and reads the editorial or the maga zine and scans the page, or the book of poetry or prose and looks at the illustrations, and there is a meaning in the word with the Greek or Latin derivation I which comes to hip unconsciously; there is a suggestion of a classic Savor in the illustrations which gives them a delight; so that you find university people readers to the day of their death, and business people readers until they go into business. In the1 older countries of the world the higher education had always been a privilege. In these United States of America a : liberal education is a duty. . : - - N There the institutions of government rest upon ' thrones, rest upon classes, rest upon caste. There the higher education endangers the caste and undermines the throne. Here liberty Tests upon- the intelligence of the .people, and it is .pure or it is base according to the character of that Intel ligence. ' , i Every college is an insurance company against anarchy and socialism. Every fully equipped and thoroughly educated boy and girl Is a missionary for the right in the State, in society, in religion and in morals. Mere"Asleepfittfee 66 By George H. Daniels. SLEEP at the Switch" ; could not have been written if the ; great railroad systems of the poet's time had been what they ' are now. If the author of those thrilling verses had not taken time by the forelock amateuf recitationists of to-day would have to depend entirely on "Woodma'n, Spare That Tree," or "Curfew Shall Not Ring To-night." For the-, melodramatic situa tion used to such advantage the switchman snoring at his post, the train coming madly on through the night and saved in the very nick of time by a maiden with her hair standing on end would ; not be true to life in these days. Like the - times, railroads have changed for the better and the fate of a trainload of passengers is no longer leftTto' a single man who may or may not snuggle; up tohis switch and take va nap. fZT' With the "block" system now in operation h the main lines, a man "asleep atkhe switch"-would practically, stop the running of trains for miles back. The sleeper, in other words, would; virtually4 tlenap the operation of the road until some one woke him up. For the object of, the block system js to block trains, to keep-them a certain distance apart. A block is:;the dis tance "between towers the distance varying all. the way from less than 1500 feet to over three miles. Only one train is allowed in a block at a timeC: The system is so simple that it caufbe escMbed: The signals at each tower are controlled by the'manln-thelower ahead..; That is, no towerman. can give the signal "AH cleat"? 'until that signal is .unlocked by his co-laborer in the next tower. Thus, a train leaving Grand Central Station 4s controlled as follows: On approaching tower' one the towerman asks tower two for an unlock by, ringing three bells. ; If blocks clear be tween towers Tone and two, towerman at tower 'two .unlocks tower 'one by pushing a plunger: ina cabinet. Tower one then clears signals,1 and after the train has passed he. .announces the train approaching tower two- by finging four bells. And this-idifithod Is. carried out: aU : the way to the end -of the line.

' v ; -- . . t The VovXtty Intlasffy In the Sotith ; The poultry industry of the South when compared Avith other sections of the United States seems to be almost in its infancy, yet at the same tfme, in Eastern Tennessee, eggs and poultry are among the leading exports. Ship ments from some of-the leading towns are very heavy. How much more val uable the poultry industry would be if thoroughbred stock was the!- rule, and a better quality of poultry put on the market. , - Thoroughbred stock do?3 not com mand the prices in the South, because the farmers have uot been educated up to fancy prices, and many cannot see that eggs from a $50 hen are any more valuable ihan any otlier setting. A lady in Tennessee had some valuable chickens, for, which she had paid a large price. A neighbor came and wanted "a settin of aigs." She asked him what he expected to pay. "Well, ho veekoned, about fifteen cents." She told him they were worth $3 for fifteen. He went away .very iudignant because she would not let. him have them for fifteeu cents. Another neighbor want ed to "swap" eggs. In some of the markets chickens range from fifteen cents up to tw?nty , or. thirty. A good hen often bringing twenty-five cents regardless of condi tion. The average price of ducks is fifteen cents. Here in -Dayton, chick ens will bring' fom twenty-five cents up to seventy cents each, dressed, plump and fat. -Now, why should this "be so?. Cli matic conditions are much more favor able in many parts of the South.'cspe cially Tennessee, than here. At Bir- mingham eggs were among the "not to be thought of luxuries" all winter, and most of these cold storage, and hardly worth carrying hoine. By the way, Congress should impose a tax upon cold storage eggs after they reach a certain age. There is a great future for the poul try business in the South. Feed costs less, as chickens can provide for them selves the greater part of the year, un less kept up in too close quarters; the gravelly soil in many places supplies the necessary grit. Fall chickens can be gotten ready for the holiday mar ket. Early broilers are more easily raised. In fact, the South Is an ideal poultry country. There is one draw back, and that it, it is more difficult to keep the fowls free from vermin, but if the proper precautions are taken they may be kept free' from "even that annoying enemy. Some poultry rais ers will tell you that cholera is so bad in the South that they lose so many chickens each year from that disease. It is doubtful whether a case of chol era was ever in their flocks. Vermin will make a fowl get light in weight, droop, comb and wattles become pale, and finally die with every symptom of cholera. Some of the large breeds will do equally as well in the South as in the North. ' The Plymouth Rock is a relia ble fowl in any locality. The Lang shan is an excellent winter layer, and adapts itself admirably to the Southern climate. The success with a flock of hens de pends upon good management, as in any other line of business. The same per cent, of attention must be given to all the details required in the poultry business Proper food for egg produc tion; pure water, good ventilation, grit and cleanliness. Poultry gives the best returns for the least care of any other industry on the farm. The farmer cares for his stables and neglects his henhouse, at the same time the hens are paying their way as they go, while may be the horses are not. The Southern hen will do as much for the South as the Kansas hen has done for that State If given half a chance. Too many poultry owners do not handle their flocks to prodnce the best results. . I Unlike Greely we would advise the active young man to go South, espe ially if he intended going into, the poultry business. Poultry raising for egg production alone near some of the largest cities would be a: very paying business.. "Take the Langshan and. Ply mouth Rocks for winter layers, and some of the Mediterranean breeds, as Leghorns and Ancovas. "Study- their habits and the conditions required for egg production. " Market only good fresh eggs. Get the reputation and the business will come. Sadie A. Berry. their supply - from surface .water courses liable to pollution of all "kinds, sick sheep may be expected; with the aggravation that it is often impossible to determine what to djofof them. With such & source, of supply, also, a rainy season, which-,washes the soil from long distances and brings down accumulations of (filth, is likely to in crease the amount of obscure disease n,the flock. It is also no unusual cause of scours in lambs. We generally look for the cause of scours Jn the feed, but. quite as often it is due to impure water.". S Everybody is familiar with the dis turbance in the human family, particu larly "fn hot weather, which follows the. use-of bad water. -The stomach of thp lamb, and even the sheep, is quite as susceptible to dangers from this source as Is that of the shepherd. We often see flocks Off fairly good "pastures, that ought to do weir so far as feed is concerned, showing a lack of thrift and a general dullness for which there seems to be at first-blush no apparent eason. Very often an examination of the water supply will reveal thet cause. Atlanta Journal. ' . IVaier For Sheep. ' An Important point in successful sheep management Is the water supply. While good water is a good thing In growing all kinds of live stock, it is especially so with the sheep, which is not "only a dainty feeder hut a dainty drinker, -and will only take bad,, stag nant water 'into its stomach when driven to it by thirst, r ,-Sot only will it suffer for the want of drink when the-supply Is bad, but it Is subject to more diseases, usually pa rasitic, .that havethelr origin in -pol luted-water tnan any other or tne ao unestic animals.'"

At a recent meeting of the Victoria Mutual Assurance Society in London, England, Dr. Hawkins, 'one of the directors, and a well known medical man, in the course-of an address said: "There is one matter in our report to which I want to call your attention, viz., the contrast between 'the mor tality in tBe General Section and that in the Abstainers'. You will perceive that tbo-number of life' Insurances brought to payment in the Total Ab stainers' Section Is proportionately only half of those that have fallen due in the General Section. A more sur prising fact 'contained within a few lines of print I have never seen. Two things require mention; flrsf, that this is not an over-hurried result attained, within the course of a single year. When we settled the last, fl ve-vpar period of the society, the profits in the Abstainers' Section were found to "be twice as much aa'fn the General Section. In addition to that we must take Into account that these figures Include more than seven years. And, secondly, we must remember that this is not a comparison between abstain- cia auu me general public, but be tween abstainers and1 what w sun- pose to be moderate drinkers. I say moderate drinkers, because our soci ety has adopted every possible meas ure to keep drunkards at a distance. The candidate for insurance is obliged to submit to an examination bv a physician fully awarev.of all the evils f produced by the excessive use of alco hol, and If this physician concludes that the case in hand habitually uses alcohol to excess,?we refuse the risk; and, besides, the candidate is abliged to. subscribe to a 'solemn, statement either that he Is ; strictly moderate or a total abstainer. Consequently, I feel justified in affirming that these figures -. represent the longevity of abstainers in comparison with that of moderate drinkers. - I believe'that as fellow citizens who think, it behooves us to draw correct conclusions ,from figures so striking.- To me they are so very surprising that I am astonished that long ago they have not been proclaimed from the house tops by the total abstinence societies of Great Britain, and made the subject of further consideration among the remainder of our fellow citizens who tmnK." For us they are of especial importance because we are aware of the encroaching role alcohol plays in our daily life. What conclusions are we obliged to draw from the facts and the figures to which I am calling your attention? The only one I can reach is that alco hol is injurious. : I do not maintain that these figures exactly demonstrate that alcohol in extremely small doses shortens life, but they do convince me that the quantity of alcohol consumed by the so-called moderate drinkers does shorten life to a' considerable ex tent." THE GREAT TEMPTATION On one occasion some years ago, Gen. Phil Sheridan, known in war -time-Weared, what would it be? The Value of Bnmni. Farmers now have an opportunity to study the value of humus in the soil. Several consecutive years of hoed crops will exhaust the vegetable matter even in new grounds. Then the red clay soils and black jack soils bake very hard after a rain. Sandy soils get very close and root development is ar rested. Stable and lot manure supply humus and plant food at the same time. But no farmer can make enough such-manure to keep up his land. Stub ble and weeds after small grain help land somewhat. But the quickest and best supply of humus Is to be. secured from the pea vine. Nature's way of re storing lands in North Carolina is to begin with broom sedge, followed by briers and plum bushes, after which the old field pine comes in and finishes the job. That is a slow process and re quires twenty-five to forty years. But in five years an intelligent farmer may restore the thinnest land in the State, provided it has a good subsoil, by sow ing peas and small grain and deep plowing. Cotton Plant, i it..! ,i. :M as "Fighting Phil," was standing with another general, an old friend, on the steps of a big house in Washington, watching his four bright children get iftto a cart and drive down the street. As the children drove along, soon disappearing from sight, and throwing 'good-by kisses" to their papa, Sheri dan's friend asked: "Phil, how do you manage your little army of four?" 'Don't manage; they are mischiev ous soldiers, but what good comrades! All the good there is in me; they bring; out Their little mother is a wonder ful woman, and worth a regiment of officers, John. I often think what pit falls are in waiting for my small, brave soldiers all through life. I wish I could always help them over."

The use of a heavy, rope in a circle about a cow's flanks .Is a well-known device for keeping a cow's tail still during milking time, but the' best part of such a help is usually left off the rope. It Is a bit 6f cord with a weight The July issue of Abkari, the quar terly" organ of the Anglo-Indian Tem perance Association, contains the an-! nual report of that society for 1901-2,: which presents some j interesting and instructive facts relating to the tem perance reform in British India. ; f -,: Among the subjects, touched upon by the report is the relation of the drink evil to the poverty of .the people. It is shown that-the excise receipts, for the past twenty-five , years. have almost steadily increased, in "spite of the periods of famine that have stirred the world by their frightful- conditions.: The report says that it cannot be said of India that drinking and drunk enness are the main causes of, poverty, but care&il students of the : conditions now existing, in that dependency can not hide from themselyes the fact that every year, drink, is contributing an increasing : quota to . the misery and degradation of the poorer classes, al though the great .mass of the popula tion is still untouched by the drink habit. In support of this view the statement of a prominent public man of the Madras Presidency, a: native, is quoted. ' -The - statement - occurs in a letter to a- member of the committee of the Anglo-Indian Association and is as follows: - ' ; :i ; "As. to the frequent famines in our country, many causes and remedies have been suggested by well-wishers; yet one cause- seems to have escaped : their attention. It is nothing less than the cursed drink placed, within" the reach" of our poorest classes ' These pitiable men, who live from' hand to mouth even in good years, cannot be expected to put by a' penny against a bad year in face of such a temptation. In i short, drink hastens these poor people's ruin." The mystery surrounding. the killing of J. P.
