Science is marching on. The only
trouble, or at least one very great troi
ble ,is in getting folks to acknowledge
"In South America", says Dr. Lauro
M tiller, Brazilian minister of Foreign
Affairs ,who is touring this country,
"we are working to increase our beef
production to avail ourselves of the
world market thrown open by the di
minution of the ranges of North Ameri
ca." South United States as well as
South America wants to get in the
business of supplying the world market
including the South itself with beef.
It is one of the most promising of all
the industries and the South is wonder
fully well adapted to it. To follow it
successfully of course requires brains
and energy but our Southern folks
arc not lacking in there respects. So
let the South do its part in the di
rection of not allowing the South Ameri
can stock-growers to have too mecl
of a picnic in supplying the world iti
market with beef.
HOW IS IT DONE?
, A news item from Battle Creek, Mich.,
tells of a woman 72 years old who ha
never lost a tooth. She has three small
fillings which were put in on account
of discoloration and not because ol
cavities. But the news item is not at
all complete. How was the woman able
to rave her teeth so well? What variety
of tooth powder has she been using?
How many times a day does she wash
her teeth? What influence docs her
case show heredity to have on teeth?
Has she refrained from taking medicines
and eating candy or does her care prove
that the popular notions as to the tooth
destroying qualities of those articles
are mistaken ones? There arc plenty
of folks who can give the information
as to how to make one's teeth last
indefinitely, but their advice and sug
gestions are by no means in the same
class with the advice and suggcstioi s
of a person who like the Michigan
woman is a living illustration of hcv
the trick tan be turned. The reading
public is entitled to another install
ment of news from Battle Creek.
A Btucfield man shocked the guest

COUNTING THE COST.
Discus.-ir.g Professor David Starr
Jordan's proposition that war between
the great powers of the earth is growing
constantly less likely of occurrence,
the Greensboro News says:
"There is one trouble with stch
prophecies as Professor Jordan sub
mits, however, and that is that nations
do not sit down and in the light of
cold facts and reason count the cost
of war before engaging in hostilities."
Perhaps they have not reached the
point where they can be invariably
depended on to sit down and count the
cost, but undoubtedly they do it to
a greater extent than ever they did
before. Witness the deliberation that
marked the attitude of this country
to Japan and that of Japan to this
country during the period ot anxiety
and unrest brought on by the anti-
alien legislation in California. Beth
ptrties to the controversy showed
tiiat they were calculating the money
cist of war and also had regard for
the fearful cost in death and suffering.
The nations of the world have not
reached perfection in the matter of
counting the cost of war but they
are approximating it.
Ex-Governor Glenn has let it be
known that he will indicate in Scp-
mbcr whether he wll be a candidate
for the Senate to succeed Senator Over
man. It is true as some one has re
nt rkod that he ought not to keep folks
suspense. Yet the suspense will
not be keen for most everybody at
all acquainted with the ways of our
public men understand that there is
little doubt about Mr. Glenn being
in the race. With the gentlemen who
mve a fondness for office the rule is,
'When in doubt about running, run."
As there seems to be no way to
keep giddy young lads from smoking
cigarettes it is perhaps useless to under
take to get them to have a care as to
where thev throw the stumps. Yet
is it a fact that many serious conflagra
tions result from lighted cigai ette-ends
carelessly thrown aside and it is not
surprising that people wonder if some
way might not be devised to reduce
the evil. Perhaps it would do some
good if in the home the folly of being
careless about fire should be con
stantly impressed upon the young.
Nearly all tiies like nearly all cases

THE WEARING OK MOURNING.
An innovation in woman's dresn,
says the Goldaboro Argu-, th.:t pro
mises to meet with considerable favor
is the abolition of black a mourn
ing and the substitution of white there
for. This would be all ri,ht for sum
mer, but how about widtcrr W
lave never given much thought to
woman's apparel (and women are the
ones whom the question of mourning
apparel principally concerns.' In t it
occurs to us th.it a white costume iu
midwinter would seem about as odd
as black in midsummer. A better
way out of the difficulty wou.d be not
to wear mourning at all. It is expen
sive for one thing. It can be no con
flation to the one mourned. It forces
the sorrow of the one in mourning on
the attention of others and genuine
feeling of any sort is unol truiive.
Besides there is trouble enough in the
world without the remiruKis of the

Southern Farming, published in At
lanta, has a very sensible editorial on
the subject of the credit system as it
obtains in connection with the South
ern farmer. It shows that the South
ern farmer buying corn on credit pays
nineteen cents more per bushel than
he would have to pay if he paid cash.
The writer of the editorial very pro
perly observe that it would be better
for the farmer if he would raise his corn
instead of getting it cither on credit
or for cash, but he adds that if he wants
to buy it and wants to buy it on r lit
there ought to be some way of avi wl
ing an extortionate profit. And there
certainly ought to be.
It seems to us that the farmer when
he is forced to borrow is about as hard
hit as are the salaried inea in the c:ties
whofalln prey to trc loan sharks, In
Mth instances however reforms an
wing brought about. In the city legi
imatc companies are offering loans

SOLOMON said, "There is a time for ev

he is earning and is able to spare some of
it. Ease and comfort have been the lot
of many persons in old age because th"y
learned to save in their early life. If you
open a savings account just now, you will
provide an easy chair for old age. The
possession of a bank book gives the feeling
