S o horrible and o pathetic. so revolting
to th sense of nity is the miaeraw
ble existence of a felon of our State
that the heart grows sick in the coo-
templation. We met, while looking over
timber lands neao Minneols, an old white
au a prisoner, a man of a brilliant
ind, and noting from his polished man-
eaw, a man of education and better
days. This poor wretch, in the very
..eveainof life, sick and decrepit, was
bartered out by the State to do manual
labor on the turpentine farm.
Retold us theJtoryof his life-of his
Sboyhood days, hi old companion and his
Sehdren, and how pover had forced

the State, ad to be tru men it Is theb
duty to thoroughly nvestgate. What
personal profit ed it be them to
t at liberty me poorwretch who ba
not a change of clothes? While consid-
ering the act of the felon It is the pro-
vince of mercy and justice to mark the
extent ot the correction. If the pun-
ishment has proven to be correction,
the offense expiated and proper fear ex-
erted on the mind of a like would-be
criminal, the prisoner should be liber-
ated.
The human mind, with all of in-
lectual attainments, yet bears the ear-
'marks of its primeval condition, when
man in his nudity, with disheveled hair,
glaring eyes and distended nostrils,
rushed upon his fellowman and beast
alike with the club of the forest for a
livelihood. But little removed from the
habits and thought of the brute, the at.
tribute of mercy-the doctrine of par-
don, the quality to forgive-existed only
In its embryotie state in the human
mind. Merer is the only principle of
mind that differentiates between the
human and the brute. Thedu6 loves,
hates, is grateful, is tonehed by the
sweet ebords of musie, poses the
sense of humor, deception all the
passions of man except that at-
tribut merny. Mercy is etoly,
to the hiftg order of so i its
volume is the inevitableO f h-
man intelli'eee; where it l abounds
there a retr--ee-ion to the brute, ad
where iberally towed, en appro
to the deity. There are bat three, and
only three, resasns for puniahieat.
RaASONs On PUNImUMmNT.
First, the guilty is punished to miti-
Wte, to alleviate, to asuage the feel-
Sof the victim of his act, the ag-
eved. Secondly, to produce a
some fear and dread In the mind of
those who weauld likewie do wrong.
And thrdy the guilty is punished for
his own ood for eorretion. Any pun-
Iseent ited, not embracing these
three Orbacibce, Is without foundation

Cain seems utterly insensible of any re-

agencies and institutions will have their

race to a higher plane. Now among
uch moral and helpful agencies stand
the Order of Odd Fellows. And I am
glad of the pritle to bear to your or-
through yo its representatives,
my warmeet EM1i.g, and my wish that
the Order of Odd Fellows may reach
out to the bounds of the world. As you
know your order can not claim antquity
of origin, nor do you claim for it a re-
mote past There are other fraternal
and benevolmit orders which date far-
ther back history than yours, and to-
day boastO a vast membership. But
from thtma of your first efforts to
express four feelings and sentimeta in
an organ=ld capeity yeo have esjoed
the d'pti ie-% of phenomenal growth.
So that today you represent th la t
o ganisation of men in Cra,
resting upon a purely fraternal md be-
nevolent hals. Tie growth of yeOr
order was a of the wonders of tIh
past centy. And yet the principles
of the Ord64 Odd Fellow are the reo-
lentless fee ee of our most beht.
ished sins---RI-love.

Steve Brodie, the Bridge Jumper, as a
Self Advertiser.
Curiously enough, the man who, in
my opinion, bad the keenest intuition
of the value of publicity and used it
to the greatest personal advantage.
when we consider his humble begin-
nings annd the limited sphere of hbls en.
deavor, never really knew bow to read
and write. I knew him first as a young
street urchin,. making hils living by
selling newspapers. blacking boots, run-
Ming errands and doing such odd Jobs
as fell In his way, nnd It was chiefly
through selling newspapers, whose
headlines alone he was barely able to
decipher, that he gained that knowl-
edge of what Park row calls "news*
values," which oue finds In every train-
ed and efficient city editor.
It was on the strength of this knowl-
edge that this bootblack wetint oue day

onlookers and the swift rush of a pant-

It was an unknown youth with an

GONTLaUx-We have tested your
PHoasao-ALKALI tobacco fertilizer for.
uanla, sold us as an experiment last
year. an complete fertilizer for grow-
ing cigar leaf tobacco.
We are pleased to state that this
experiment was highly satisfactory-
1st. Because it gave a good burn.
2nd. Because It increased the yield
200 to 300 pounds per acre.
It did not injure the color of texture
in the slightest; in fact, this tobacco
grown with your fertilizer gave a more
uniform color and texture than that
grown with other fertilizer.
If you hold this formula to this
standard, and sell this fertilizer at ap-
proximately the same price, we are
confident that It will be vastly to the
Interest of all tobacco growers to use
the same.
With kindest regards, we are,

on our tobacco plantation and must
say that same has proven up to our

your mixture a thorough test and can
highly recommend it to anyone who
wishes to produce a first-class burn of
tobacco, wfltrh is very necessary.
We will place our orders with you
for our entire needs for the coming
season and trust that you will be for-

proportions of 1.000 pounds of WPa-

the burn, texture and all the other prop.

I feel sure that you have at last
struck the proper formula and one
that fully supplies a long-felt want,
and, as long as I grow shade tobacco
and you hold the goods up to the pres-

usliness for myself, tenants and cus-
tomers.
As a further advantage that this
PHOSPIO-ALKALI has over all other
formulas that contain potash Is tlift
the other goods leach all the plant-
food out of the land. while this one
(Phospho-Alkall) adds to the proper-
ties and also produces a tobacco that
burns perfectly, which is all the use
that potash Is to the tobacco.

The Cannon Thati


Modernized Japan


By Herbert Kaufman.


lusn'es L;i no longer a man to man C
--ttic, )in which the merchant and the. pat
e, WiIh a personal bond, any more than
tic i; a hand-to-hand grapple, where bone
rtude and iinew decide the outcome. Tra
:.s well as war has changed in its aspect-bot
r now fought at long range.
Just as a present day army of heroes woul
.r c nuo opportunity to display the individual
v\.or of its meinbers, just so a merchant w
counts upon his personal acquaintanceship for:
success is a relic of the past-a business ded.'
Japan changed her policy of exclusion to0
foreigners after a fleet of warships battered.
down the Satsuma fortifications. The Samu-
rai, who had hitherto considered their blades.
and bows good enough, discovered that one
cannon was mightier than all the swords in,
creation if they could not get near enough to use
them. Japan profited by the lesson. She did
not wait until further ramparts were battered to
pieces, but was satisfied with her one experience
and proceeded to modernize her methods.
The merchant who doesn't advertise is pretty
much in the same position as that in which Japan
stood when her eyes were opened to the fact that
times had changed. The long range publicity of a
competitor will as surely destroy your business as the
cannon of the foreigners crumbled the walls of Sat-
suma. Unless you take the lesson to heart, unless you
realize the importance of advertising, not only as the
means of extending your business but for defending
it as well, you must be prepared to face the conse-
quences of a folly as great as that of a duelist who
expects to survive in a contest in which his adversary
bears a sword twice the length of his own.
Don't think that it's too late to begin because
there are so many stores which have had the advantage
of years of cumulative advertising. The city is grow-
ing. It will grow even more next year. It needs
increased trading facilities just as it's hungry for new
no :hb rhoods.


P But it wil/! n;' tr again support neighborhood stores.
i
Newspaper advertli.-ing has eliminated the strength of
being locally proiinicnt, and five cent street car fares
have cut out the advantage of being "around the
corner." A store live miles away can reach out through
the C,)hln.s of the daily neCWpaper and draw. your
next door neighbor Lo its aisles, while you sit by and
see the people your own llock enticed away without
your ein ahle to retaliate or supply ;'':w customers
to takec their pi,!tce.

It is not a questionn of your ability to stand the
cost o(f advertising but of being able to suri'iv'c without
it. The thing \ ou have to consider is not only an
cxttc'sion of your business but holding hat you al-
ready have.
Ad(vertisin(g is an in;vcstint, the cost of which
is in the same proportion to its returns as seeds are to
the harvest. And it is just as preposterous for you to
consider publicity as an expense as it would be for a
farmer to hesitate over purchasing a jerti. acr if he
discovered that he could profitably in rease his crops
by employing it.

hei v6 doae. The ria of
a n M-1r es the -t hasi* I
aaogat ever remehsd the wUrM'
try- 7,W,00o,0. The ga0al val ae
over ? is $200,000,000, and would
have bees larger had not the prices of
cotton and hay been low.
"Greatest of all crops is Indian corn,"
a o eary Wilma%. "the priceless
gft of the Iian. The prodiastion this
year is 2.648,000,000 bushels ; the value
1,616,00,000. The valueofthiscrop,"
he declares, "almost surpases belief.
This wealth that has grown out of the
soil in four months of rain and sun-
* shine, and some drought, 'too, is
enough to cancel the interest-bearing
debt of the United States and to pay
for the Panama Canal and 50 battle-
ships."
It seems likely that the cotton crop
stands with the highest three years in
quantity. In value, however, it is ap-
prently next to the highest and per-
hape equal to that For the first time
in the country's history the value of the
cotton crop, including seed, has ap-
parently exceeded the value of the hay
crop, which has hitherto occupied sec-
ond place.
A HISTORICAL HAY CROP.
The reatt hiy crop in history has
been harveed this year, 68,000,000
tons, or 12 pi cent. above the average
of the preedl five years. Its price
e J2.00 a ton len than a year ago, but
stil the farm value of the crop is
$621.000,000. In quantity the wheat
crop is 660,000,000 bushels, and has been
often exceeded, while the value is
$620,000,000, and has never been
equalled or approached nearer than
$F6,000,000. The largest rice crop ever
raised, 28,000,000 bushels, is this year's
with a value of about $18,000,000. All
cereals aggregate 4,329,000 000, a total
that hasl een exceeded three times,
but the value reaches $2 94,000,000.
or more than $300,000,000 above that of
1907, and still more above the totals of
former years.

seven chapters when he was stricken

Scott, too, left a tale unended-'"Th

Then there was "St. Ives," left un-

"Zeph," by Helen Jackson, and
."Blind Love." by Wilkie Collins. Buc-

Among famous poems that were
never completed mention may be made
of' Byron's "DonL Juan," Keats' "Hy-

Gray'a "Agrippina." Spenser's "Faerie

You should always remember that
inost cough and cold cures are consti-
pating. Yet the most Important thing
to do when you have a cold Is to move
the bowels. You cannot promptly cure
a cold until you do this. Kennedy'sI
Laxative Cough Syrup stops the cough
by allaylog inflammation of the throat
and lungs, and it drives the cold from
the system by gently moving the
bowels. Children Hlike It. for it tastes
nearly as good as maple sigar. Sold

What Makes the Heart Beat?
-Professaaor Jacques Loeb. the celebrat-
ed biologist, In his book. *, Jnamlcs
Sof Living Matter." has showh that a
Strip cut from the ventricle of the
e.Uart put In a solution of chloride of
sodium will continue to beat for a
number of days, until putrefaction sets
1t. He says this can be done with an
ordinary muscle after it has been ex-
tirpated from the body. This would
w Uld to prove that the heart Is a chem-
I al maheine and tha t It es all due to
dmosal action. The muscular con-
tractia is probably du*e to the sabsti-
at oas of sodium for calcium salts In
tho eal of the muscles.
The diSculty of this theory is that It
doea "ot explain the control of the
muscles. It Is plain that the problem
of ntrl is not solved by the chem-
Ieal theory.

Educated.
Mrs. 8. was In a Richmond hospital,
and she was lonely, so welcomed the
advent of a very black and very lan-
guid maid who came in one mornlug
to wipe up the floor. Some one new
to talk to, so no time was lost.
"I have not seeu you working around
here before. Aren't you a new girl?"
Edmonla willingly let the cloth slip
back into the bucket and sat flat upon
the floor before answering.
"Yas'm, I's new. I'a Jest wakhln' up
de floor. But I don't work. I's edji-
kated."
"And where were you educated?"
was the next question.
"In a seminary." Then. with a burst
of confidence: "There was me an' an-
other girl working' in a house. She was
cook, an' I was chambermaid, an' we
had great times about who would git
-- de price, but I beat" Then. after a
pause, "She was easy to beat, 'cause
she got smothered to death with gas

8.1 per cent of the seeds fed to ani-

DRY ROT IN CORN.
A Disease Which Threatens to e.-
eome a Serious Matter.
The name dry sot Is derived from
the way the ears are affected in the
field. "In general the busks tend to
turn prematurely yellow to sooty, and
the ear becomes partially or wholly
shriveled and much decreased in
weight Sometimes the ears remain
upright with the husks closely adher-
ing to them. In other cases the shanks
are weakened, and the affected ears
hang limp from their attachment, or
the diseased condition may not be de-
tected until the husk Is removed."
There are several kinds of dry rot,
due to different causes. The most
common and that whichin has during
the past two seasons caused about 90
per cent of the damage in Illinois Is
due to a fungus known as liplodla
maydls. Ears infected with this fun-
gus "shrivel up more or less. darken
In color and become light in weight."
The kernels are also shriveled, very
brittle and loosely attached to the cob.
The fungus penetrates all portions of
the ear, kernels, rob and husks and
produces many dark brown, two celled
spores which serve to propagate the
fungus.
In the case of the diplodIa disease
and quite probably in that ot the other
forms the fungus perpetuates itself
over winter on the old diseased ears
and old stalks. It Is not usually diffi.
cult to find throughout the summer in
old cornfields, where the disease has
previously prevailed, many pieces of
old cornstalks which are infected with
the diplodis fungus. Stalks known to
be two years old have been found still
producing spores. During moist period
spores oose from these stalks In abun-
dance and are blown singly or tn
masses long distances, as has been fre'-
qnently demoontrated by experiment.
The fungus does not. according to
present knowledge, grow upon any
other bhost and upon developing corn
only on the ears. Not so much is
known of the other fungi here con-
earned, but since 90 per cent of the
rot is due to diplodla less attention
need be given to them. Diseased eare
are fruitful eourees of subsequent In-
fection and should be removed as
promptly as possible. This can be
readily done. at the time of husking
If not before. Keep them In a separate
receptacle and burn them as soon as
practicable. In addition to this. in
fields where any considerable amount
of disease has been found, the stalks
should also have attention, whatever
crop sto to follow. Something may be
gained by carefully plowing them un-
der and leaving them well covered, but
burning may be required even If this
is otherwise bad procedure.
If the first suggestion is always tol-
lowed and the others are put Into
practice whenever necessity demands
It, these serious losses may be prac-
tically prevented.


An Alfalfa Harrew.
The culture of alfalfa bas now
reached the point in this country where
It is creating new lines of Industry

this tool spikes or teeth like those
used on a tooth harrow are fastened
to the disk, so that Instead of cutting
the surface, as a disk harrow does,
these teeth chop up and turn over the

An Expert Farmer.
An exchange says a young man asks.
"What would you advise a young mas.
raised on a farm who cannot stasd tht
dust of baying and thrathblng and is
most too light to do heavy farm work
to do?"
Gardening, floriculture, Doultrv rals-
ing. civil engineering-all are good. If
be is built for an expert, there are liad-
scape gardening. inside decorating and
a number of other good occupationp
open to bhn.
The young man who is built for an
expert-that Is,. oou who toi naturally
bright, careful and painstaking-will
succeed In any of the above or In al-
most any other occuation. He will
have to learn the business he selects.
He cannot learn any of them from a
"correspondence school." He needs a
practical Instructor who can show him,
and the way to become an expert Is to
begin at the bottom and work up. thor-
oughly learning all the details as one
goes along. The expert Is always in
demand, and be commands the top
wages.
Whatever vocation a young man goes
Into, he should be thorough as be goes
along, always keeping his eyes open
for better ways of doing the work be
has In hand. All vocations are crowd-
ed with ordinary workers. but there's
still lots of room in the upper ranks.

ment of agriculture asking for reme-
dies to prevent or cure the bitht that
