is the great strength of the paper.

likely to experience a foot of cold

The Bank is a little more than two
hundred years old. Its growth has
been enormous. At first some fifty
persons sufficed for its business; now
they are numbered by hundreds. It
was founded in 1694, an enterprising
Scotchman named Paterson having
a part in the project.

death the household furniture and
even his wife's belongings had to be

it took every cent."
The astonishing thing about it was
that to many of her acquaintances
this seemed an entirely sufficient ex
planation. As a matter of fact,
dozens of them were living the same
way. except that a life insurance of
small amount was carried. Their
incomes had no margin of saving.
And this condition of living without
a margin is very common in other
cities and towns the land over. The
American family is optimistic. It is

The only margins it considers are
the stock margins, in which the head

hope of making a little more to eke

DZHOXSTSATlON FARMS ARE NEEDED.
(W. F. Massey, in IVok-ressive Farmer.)
W7e have a plenty cf test farms,
experimental farms, but if every
county had a model farm, a money
making farm conducted on the best
business plan, it would teach the sur
rounding farmers that a farm car
make money while bu.ldlng itself up
to a more and more producti ve char
acter. Such demonstration farms
are needed. The demonstrations
carried on by the Department of
Agriculture are all right so far as
they go. But we nesd a farm in
every county that is til demonstra
tion, in every field and with every
crop, demonstrating, not what can
be done with heavy fertilization, but
what can be accomplished without
heavy expenditures, but through
making the farm build itstlf up to a
high state of producdveress while
paying a pr-fit all the time. It i?
easy for a nvlhonaire to improve a
farm by a liberal expenditure re
gardless of cost. But that does not
teach the farmer whe has not the
means to imitate it, asd who wants
crops that cost a good deal les? than
they will sell for every year from
It cannot he done 3 rapidly as
the millionaire would do it, perhaps,
but that it can be dane has been
shown by the experience of many
who have worked up on a poor f arm
from poverty toindepeadence. Such
a farm would, of couise, accept the
proved results cf the experimenters,
but would rigidly avoid experimen
tation in unknown lines, leaving the
unsolved problems to the Experi
ment Station. while having for its
aim the development of productivity
of that soil the year after, while eve
ry year paying a profit oi every crop,
disasters of theseason only excepted.
Such a fat hi could berhade the post
graduate school for your.g men who
have studied the sciences connected
with farming, and wro would reed
the practical work of a farm hand to
round out their study and make
them real farmers.
It is characteristic of the North
Carolina people to consider long and
thoroughly any new proposal, and
whn ence convinced cf its value to
go ahead and do it thoroughly. And
they are becoming convinced of the
impottanee of teaching elementary
agriculture in the rural schools and
the establishment of district high
schools of agikulture, and they de
termined to have these, and will have
them. And once convince the peo
ple of North Carolina that they can
have a profitable, not a public ex
pense, model-farm in each county,
and they will have tliem in spite of
any obstacle. All over the State
they became convinced that they
needed better schcol-houses and
graded schools, and they have built
them all over the State, and will
build more. ,
They are becoming more and more
convinced that they must have good
roads, and they are getting them as
fast as any State in the country, ar.d
we hope that our "Good Road Spe
cial" will help push the movement
along. Maryland has appropriated
five milllicn dollars for a State road

stead of the short series radiating
out from the chief towns, there will
be a net work of hard and well grad
ed roads fron the western mountain
line of the State to -the sea, over
which every farmer can haul his
produce with ease to the shipping
noint.' Most parts of the State are
well supplied with railroads, but to
thousands they are of far les3 value
than they should be on account of
the difficulty in hauling over the
roads leading to the stations. It is a
big thing, but it i3 only a matter of j
time when our peopte will get there, j
Already the people in other States
are talking about the way North
Carolina is building good roads, and
while plunging through the mud and
over the rock3 in Pennsylvania last
winter, I told them how Mecklen
burg county is building macadamiz
ed roads, and they seemed to think it
a fairy tale. The had some fine
turn-pikes up there built by corpor
ation to which every one must pay
toll, but the macadamized public
roads are few and far between, ex
cept in the neighborhood of the
great and wealthy citie3 like Phila

Mothers wear themselves out and

that a child requires is very differ

mother or nurse spends, hut the

that the mother ran to it the minute
that it began to cry, of course seen j
learned this method of summonirg
her. It also perceived that the loud
er the cry the greater the indul

speedily jnto a despot, beneath
whose tyranny the mother grows
wan and pale. When it is said of
her: "She is a perfect slave to her
children," she looks satisfied and
pleased, as if she had won a martyr's
crown, instead of which she ha3 use
lessly squandered her strength, and
prevented the child from learning
proper habits, which are as neces

as it is that he should learn to walk

himself, and cry now and then.

mU ORCHARD A EEALTill'L SI'jHT.
All through the lowlands of Mexi
co and throughout Central America
and the West India Islands the ba
nana is as common as the apple in
new England. Nearly every back
yard has its banana tree, if not a
small orchard, and almost every pho
tograph brought back by travelers,
is sure to show at least one of then;
prctureFquc tree3. It grows so ex
uberantly and is used in so many
ways that it may be clasred as a
weed, a vegetable, and a fruit. In
deed, if care were not taken to cut
out the young shoots each tree would
scon become a thick impenetrable
A banana orchard is a beautiful
sight, with its clusters of green or
yellow fruit and sprsys of bloom,
which may all be found on what is
practically the same tree. The ba
nana farmer watches hia tree3 very
carefully and permits three shoots
to grow out from the root of ach
tree which he plants. He is careful
to sec that the interval of time in
their growth in such that when the
oldest shoot is bearing frc.it, the
next is. in blossom, the third is half-
grown, sn. ttie last is just coming
out of the ground, thus making the
tree a soft cf botanical Komtn
candle, sending up fcur branches
of fruit into the air in quick succes
sion. Hie banana rivals the modern hy
gienist in its demand for sunshine
and water. It cares litile indeed,
what eoi t of soil in sends its roots in
to, so lung as it has water and sun
shine in plenty. The blightest touch
of the frost is fatal.
A great hustler is the banana tree,
and it spends no time in idling. The
farmer plants a little shoot and in
less than a year it is a full grown
tree with a Lunch of ripe bananas
gracefully hanging from its top. It
divot i'.sj energies to the one pur-
I pose of growing nd accomplishes
what it sets out to do.
Nor is the banana easily disccur-
'aed. Perhaps the fanner canes
along some day and Cut3 eff the
stalk. One would naturally suppose
that that would be the end of tl e
b marta tree, but not so. In twenty
minutes a little swelling appears i:
