. This monument testifies not . only
to the high esteem in which President
Spencer was held by his associates
but :als0 to the loyalty of the band . of
employes which he organized and
which his genius directed in building
up and operating one of the greatest
railway systems in the south. It
symbolizes the ideal relation between
the-manager of a railway system and
those who serve under: him, "each one
in his particular sphere giving to the
property, the best service of which he
is capable and co-operating with, f el

How to Blake a Hen Set.
If a hen won't set, and you want
her to, just make her, says Wilmer
Moore, of Georgia. It seems that
ayoung Moore had -been told by a
( farmer that he had made a hen. care
toT chickens that had . never been
.known: to set Jong enough to hatcn
a brood.. The way he did 4t,-as was
nen arouna m me air uni.u sue was
too dizzy to stand. Then he put her
in this comatose condition in a
lockup coop with the young chickens.,
The feathered matron recovered and,
thinking she was the mother of the
'brood, started clucking. And this
step.mother acted like a real mother.
and raised the whole bunch until
they were old enough to scratch for
their own living.
Wilmer's dominecker was a good
hen, but she was a suffragette. She
cackled all the time, adw oud!9Abb
cackled all the time, and would lay
an egg occasionally, maybe, but she
never showed any inclination to raise
a family. In
other words, she
wouldn't set. Young Moore then
thought oyer what the farmer had
joid him, and decided he would try
the same system. He believes that
chickens, as well as others, should
&VX7 out the Roosevelt policy. So
he nabbed her one day when she
wasnt looking, grabbed her firmly
by both feet and let her loop the loop
several times around his head. When
be set her on the ground she was so
;drunk she couldn't stand.

. Of course, everybody .knows who
has ever tried to raise chickens, that
the best way to break a hen of seU
ting is to give her a good ducking of
water . This cure has been . tried
fwith success for years. But to make
j a hen set, when she don't want to,
was left to young Moore to discover .
So the new rule in the poultry
guide is: If you want to get a hen

give her the . water cure,

thing, . buck .included, would come

I was below the ' center of gravity
and much to one side of It. -
I was about two years" bid then and
latex on I mastered the art of sawing
wood on a (buck under . the careful
supervision of my father. ' In those

myself.' The measles got hold of
me when I wag only : sixteen 'months
old, and they "almost . killed 'me . " A
boy of that age seldom' gets "a square

the chicken - pox at ten; and the

age of 12 I was pronounced proof
agalngt green apples and drowning.
I was a healthy boy. In fact
there weren't many sick boys in those
days . Just the thought of the medl
cine which the doctors gave them
kept many a boy from being sick
They never gave you leso than a
tablespodnful, and it was always
black and sudsy looking. I am sure
now that .the medicine us boy s didn't
take saved many of our lives. We
ust-couldn't bear the thought of tak
ing the nasty medicine, got out of
doors and got well without it. When
was a boy the doctors were not in
such a big hurry to get a patient to
the graveyard as they . are now
They waited until you got sick before
they gave . you any medicine - then
they gave you enought to cure or killj
you. Now they give you the medl
cine and you 'get sick afterwards. In
those dayg a doctor who didn't carry
pills bags that would: hold from a
peck to a half bushel of medicine
couldn't get much practice.
They didn't fix up the medicine to
take like they do now, In capsules and
sugar coated, pills and pellets., When
I was a boy we would suffer a whole
heap of belly ache, and now let the
old folks know it rather V than take
the big tablespoonful of nasty,' black
eudsy looking . medicine. : . Now then
. . -. . . - . - .
fix it up so you can't taste the meii

iJugt gave us that tablespoonful of old
black; nasty stuff 'and in an hour we
didn't know which end of us was the
sickest. The medicine In those days
was mighty quick on trigger .
