DRINK MORE MILK
. ^.'ature in making Up her list of
footls and feeds,, prepared only two
ready mixed ones, and others must
? be mixed by the user. These two
ready mixed complete rations are
milk and eggs. Think what the
world would do without these two
foods. Henry Ford thinks man fan
make them, but as yet man has
failed to equal nature. There are
some secrets that lie outside of pro- 1
teins. starches and fats.
And why should man wish to dupl'i- :

feed us the best to be had.

many children ar? not drinking the j
milk as they should.
Drinking milk is somewhat of a
habit as other drinkings, the more
you drink the more you can drink up
to the point where you have plenty
for your body needs. Some children
do not care for milk. Try forcing
them to drink for a few days, and
soon they will want their milk. Bread
and milk for supper has made more
strong men and women than any one
thins that has been given to children.
Yes. crumb it in if you wish. "Bread
and milk for Sunday nights is a fine
practice for both old and young.
Some of the strongest and health

milk each per day, and at night
soaked their bread in the milk. What
good sleeping it does induce.
If you have restless nights and
other things fail to give you that ;

milk and- drink it before the animal

The average cows milk is S7 per
cent water and 13 per cent solids. ?
The solids are made up of four or ;
five kinds kinds of fats, caesin. and
ash. The amount of caesin in cows ,
milk is most too much for babies, i
hence you are required to dilute the |
milk, and especially for some babies. !
Some cf the richer milks hav? most 1
too much of fats. A dairy having a i
mixture of breeds has the best milk ;

How much milk would it take to ;
furnish all the needs of a man work- j
ing in an office or like work? About
three quarts per day. If he drinks
three quarts per day for about three
weeks, his digestive organs will draw!
up to fit the ration and the man will j
be satisfied, and have very little ap- j

need some coarse food though.
What is a quart of milk equal to

N. C. FORESTRY ASSOCIAT!ON
TO MEET IN RALEIGH
A special meeting of the North

be held in Raleigh on January 28*'1.
it has been announced by John L.
Cobbs, Jr., secretary of the associa
tion... The purpose of the meeting is
to bring home to the people of North
Carolina, and especially to members
of the Legislature, the need for j
1 takning immediate steps to improve
'and extend protection against forest
' fires in the state to increase the
; amount of timber grown in North
Carolina forests, and to outline and
: urge the adoption of an adequate
j forest policy for our state. The use
; of cut-over lands, taxation of tim
: ber lands and the importance of
I growing supplies of timber for
j North Carolina industries are among
the subjects listed for discussion. A
i number of nationally known lead
i ers in forestry are expected to be

North Carolina millions of acrei of
land that are producing no revenue
and which are a burden on the small
area of improved farm lands and :
other improved property.

BIG THINGS IN VIEW FOR
BREVARD BOY SCOUT WORK
The new era prophesied for the
Boy Scout work in Brevard is al
ready upon us; it has already far ex
ceeded expectations. Through the
untiring efforts of Messrs. I). (J. Ward
and H. A. Plummer and the g: ne: -
ity of a host of Brevard citizens ?
.$(>00.00 asked as Brevard's share of
the expenses of a Scout executive ha.;
been subscribed. Mr. A. II. Stewart,
Jr. of Macon, Ga., has been secured
as executive, a local council has beevi
organized, a Scout commissioner
Mr. R. H. Morrow, elected and a
name for the local district chos;n.
The local council is to bear the na-n
"Toxaway." Plans are under way for
the organization of three or four
troops in Brevard and one at Pisgah
It is rather singular that the daw.i
of the new era is ushered in with
the removal from the community o:'
the two men who have been
most largely identified with Brevard's
scout work in the past: Rev. John R.
Ilay and Rev. J. C. Seagle. 01' the old
c.rele of lenders only Mr. J. A. Miller
is left. But the future is bright with
promise because the executive knows
his business thoroughly and he has
behind him a band of Brevard's ablest
and best citizens. The main task will
be first to secure and train scout
masters, and assistant scoutmasers
who have the character, ability, aiiu
devotion necessary. Then all the
boys of scout age in the community
should be encouraged by their par
ents and others to become scoutj.

the interest of all in the community

THE PRAYER CORNER
The New Year must always have
"A Foiward Look." The year left bo
hind has had with inveritably a
great many disappointments, wor
ries, burdens and troubles for some
of us. To carry them on ones spirit
into the new year is a crippling mis
take. The door of December Mist
should swing to on them once for all.
Not that there are 110 continuing
burdens that cannot be aid down. If
these belong to the new year its
days will bring strength for them.
But what the new year cannot cheer
fully carry is the added and alien
load of what ought to be left be
hind, "If I had only done differ
ently!" there is THE BACKWARD
LOOK that ought not to be taken.
On the closing door of the old year
the motto should stand boldly:
Things without remedy should
be without regard,
Wn.it's done is done."
Nor is it necessary, in this ever
changing, ever-renewing world to ac
cept helplessly and for always the
first results of a mistake. It was a
wise woman who said, when a cer
tain Eliza was commiserated because
she had made her bed, Jind must lie
on it: "Nonsense! Why can't Kiza
get up and make he bed over again ?
and make it right?"
Why not indeed? There is no need
that any one should be tossing on ;::e
prickly worries, the sharp frets, and
Uriels and errors of 15)24, as long as
11125 is ready to be made a different
kind of thing. "Up, therefore: ?
f orward ? and Courage."
A PRAYER FOR THE NEW YEAR
O Cod, whose days are without be
ginning and without end, we dedi
cate this year to Thee. Help us to
leave behind us whatever disap
pointments, worries, burdens and
troubles have come to us in the past
year. Let us not carry them with .is
into the new year, upon which we.
have now entered. Let there be .10
backward look. On the closing door
of the old year may the motto stand
"Things without remedy should be
? without regard,
What's done, is done."
Whatever the prickly worries. he
sharp frets and griefs and errors of
11)2-1, the year 11)25 is ready i<? .jc ?
