will doubtless have to bear many charges of the responsibility
for the "hard times" that have been upon the country for about
ten months. Nominee Taft will not have as easy sailing into
the port of safety as he would have if money had been easy
during the past few months; that is if the stringency continues
until November. Of course with the Republican party fully
entrenched in power it will take hard fighting in every nook

matters; but the panicky condition of the country may be the
wind that will blow good to it, after all. This condition of

heart and hope in the fight which they would not have under

on level lands, and the farmers of this region are slow to appre-
ciate these great advantages. It is true that a part of the cost
of running hillside ditches on the
State is offset by the considerable amount .of ditching that
sometimes has to be done in the level lands, but the advantage
is greatly in favor of the farmer who makes his investment in
the level lands. This is oue feature of Eastern Carolina's agri
cultural advantage that has not been emphasized sufficiently.
If some one would project some great advertising scheme
whereby the many advantages to agriculture in Eastern Caro
lina could be published broadly, he would be doing a great ser
vice not only to this choice part of North Carolina, but also to
persons who are seeking to make wise and profitable invest
ments in the agricultural lands of the State. Eastern Carolina
is indeed a great and notable section of North Carolina, and
not half of its advantages have yet been told.
Such is the heading of a most valuable article by' Orison
Sweet Marden in the July number of Success Magazine. Every
Expect Great Things cf
The paper is rather long for these columns, but it will b worth
while for any one who wishes to get the proper conception of
his own importance and ability arid destiny to secure the paper
and read it. It starts out with the question, Will you be a
pigmy or a giant? From that interrogation the optimistic view
of one's own life and powers is encouraged, declaring that one
creates his own condition; that every person should use his forces
at the strategic trial of life; that one's ambition is matched by
his ability; that one should have an inward vision, a divine
model, set a prize for every day and live in the faith that his
own heart's desire will be the result of unflagging effort, if
that desire is pure and worthy. Many a man fails of the proper
goal in life and never realizes, the possible destiny before him
by lack of suggestions like these. We venture the statement
that there are now in this country many men and women
simply filling the hum-drum life of a mediocre who would
now be filling high places of usefulness if the ideas set forth in
the article referred to had been instilled into their very lives a
quarter of a cenrury ago. Thousands and thousands of people
are capable of far greater things than they ever bring to pass,
but simply miss it by not expecting and demanding enough of
themselves. And along with this is the other fact that many a
man drags all through lifa in the rut of a mediocre because he
lacked encouragement at the proper time by the proper person
or persons. The story is familiar how Tom and Jack and Bill
were running a foot race while their respective friends and ad
mirers were looking on. Tom started in well enough and was
as good a runner as the other two, but came out behind. His
teacher being mortified at Tom's f ailureasked him why he made
such a bad run. Tom said that soon after they started on the
race numerous voices called out, "Go it, Jack" and "Go it,
Bill;" but nobody said, "Go it, Tom." He said when the other
boys were encouraged and cheered while no one seemed to care
for him, his feet became heavy as clogs and he just could not
run fast. And so it is somieimes with grown-up boys who are
called men they fail for lack of encouragement. But do not

Th8 Prolongation of Life.
Why we grow old is a problem
which many scientists have tried to
solve. The fact that we do crrovv old
is incontestible, and the changes in
the tissues that come with increasing
age are known to physiologists, but
what causes these changes, and
whether they are the cause or the re
sult of old age, science has been un
able to show.
We know that the process of aging
is a hardening process. The soft and
yielding structures, the arteries and
the cartilages, stiffen with age; the
juicy tissues dry up, and fibrous ma

This explains the process of grow
ing old, but gives no hint as to the
cause. One of the most recent theor
ies proposed to account for this fatal
change in the body is that of Prof
fessor Mecthnikoff of the Pasteur In
stitute in Paris. He says that there
is a constant warfare going on be
tween the cells of the body the
"noble" cells, such as those of the
brain, the walls of the arteries, and
the various organs, on the one hand,
and those of lower order, the" phag

The noble cells are always on the de
fensive, and so long as they are well
nourished they are able to resist the
attacks of their enemies. But with
in the large intestines are numbers
of bacteria constantly creating pois
ons which weaken these noble cells.
The remedy is to lessen the produc
tion of these poisons by attacking
the bacilli which make them.

poses to do by introducing harmless
bacteria into the intestine to take the
place of the injurious ones. He says

A GREAT LOSS.
Washing or Eroding of Farm Ucds.
WORTH CAREFUL READING.
(North Carolina Gaolcgica', Survey.)
One of the most important agri
cultural problems that conf ronts.the
farmer in the middle portion or Pied
mont section of the State, and one
that is intimately connected with
successful farming is the constant
washing or erosion which takes place
from hillside farm lands. - By far
the larger portion of the lands in this
Piedmont section of the State are hill
side lands and thus subject to ero
sion. Ihi3 is one of the greatest
drawbacks to successfull farmincr.
tor wnue it is possible for one to
have a good and productive farm on
level lands which is easily kept up,
it requires a man of much greater
capacity to operate a farm profitab
ly under adverse conditions which
prevail in the south where hillside
farming is practiced. The extent of
erosion from the farm lands of the
Piedmont plateau region is indicated
by the enornmous amount of soil
which is yearly washed away in the
muddy rivers. In this section it
amounts to more than four million
tons a year and it has a value, based
on the amount of plant food and
humus in it, of $2,000,000.
A bulletin has been prepared by
the North Carolina Geological and
Economic Survey entitled Terracing
of Farm Lands, which discusses this
erosion and the methods of lessening
it. It explains why certain soils
erode more easily than others and
then shows why lands in the South
ern States are so much more subject
to erosion than lands in the north
eastern States. The two most impor
tant reasons for this are: The heavv
rainfall of the Southern States
which frequently takes place in con
centrated showers; and second, the
close texture of the soils. The vari
ous cultural methods lessening ero
sion are also discussed with special
reference to lands used for growing
cotton, corn and tobacco and this is
followed with a description of the
different methods of terracing and
diking lands, which are used where
the cultural methods are inadequate.
There is a discussion of the kinds
of land to which different forms of
terracing afe adopted. The hillside
ditch, which is in such common use,
i3 regarded a3 being of little value,
ince it occupies much land without
hecking erosion. The methods of
constructing terraces is shown and
also the value and use of hillside and
reversable disk plows in relation to
In conclusion, the opinion is ex
pressed that land3 which are too
steep to be terraced should not be
cleared but should be kept in forest.
Suggestions are given respt-cting the
best methods of reclaming badly
washed land for farm use as well as
for planting out in trees, which often
seems the best policy.
If any one desiring suggestions
and assistance in regard to replant
ing such washed lands in trees, will
correspond with the State Geologist
or Forester, Chapel Hill, N. C. such
information will be sent to them.
The census of 18S0 gives more than
a million acres of waste land in the
middle part of the State, practically
all of which is wash farm lands.
