Got. Stuart on Farming.
Here is an o?inion-a bit of ad
vice from Governor Stuart to the
young men of the State and nation;
"I believe that the farm is one of
the greatest opportunities now pre
sented to young men. Its success
depends upon application, energy
and ability. If agriculture is pur
sued in the right manner, there is
just as much opportunity for a man
to become prosperous, in propor
tion to the amount of capital inves
ted as in almost any other vocation.
What is required is for a man to
study the soil and know what ue
can raise most profitably and. in
addition, to study his immediate
community and its needs. He must
be more or less of a specialist and
snow why he raises this crop or
Who's afraid of your cold and
Of your wind and hail and blowing,
Do the worst that you can do, sir,
Rave and blow !
But don't I know
That the spring is just a-springing?
That song sparrows yonder singing
Told me so.
While you're howling, yowling,
I can hear the robin calling,
Something new comes with each
Bluebird brings a bit of summer
On his wing.
Rave, old wind, your roar and
Can't scare pussy-willow's cluster.
Drowsy woodchucks rouse from
Wild arbutus vines are creeping,
Snow-fed mountain brooks are
leaping to the lake,
All the world stirs, shyly peeping.

Highway Won't Cosl Five Million at Wat Be
hoved. Governor Stuart's plan for a great
State highway running from Phil
delphia to Pittsburg and touching
as far as jossible every county seat
in the State, was introduced in the
senate m the shape of a bill
presented by Senator William C.
Sproul, of Delaware county. It
was at first intended to carry nn
appropriation of $5,000,000 with
the oill, but this portion was strick
en out before the measure was pre
sented. The matter of 'cash for
carrying out the provisions of the
great undertaking, it is thought
that a sum of about $2,000,000 a
year will be needed.
An important feature of the pro
posed legislation is"lhat providing
for the establishment ot either
steam or electric railways along the
road. These companies will be re
quired to pay an annual license of
$75 a mile.
Statr Highway Board.
The bill presented by Mr. Sproul
provides for the appointment by
the governor of a State highway
board composed of three citizens,
to be paid salaries, the amount of
which has not yet been determined
upon, and for the appointment of a
clerk at a salary of $i,8oo a year.
The board is to be allowed $6,000
a year for expenses.
The board is to examine and pass
on all applications for State aid in
road building and have supervision
over the operations of the State
Power is also given to the board
to establish a system of main State
highways between important points,
to be built and maintained by the
State. The board is to determine
what portions of the proposed sys
tem are to be built first, subject to
the consent of county and township
authorities. It is also authorized to
let contracts for the work on nil
State roads, the work to be done
under the direct supervision of the
State highway department.
License Fee ok $75.
When it is desired to take pri
vate turnpikes for State road pur
poses the board is authorized to in
stitute condemnation proceedings in
courts, the damages to be fixed in
the customary manner.
The bill gives the board the pow
er to grant steam or electric rail
ways the right to lay tracks and
operate cars on State highways, the
license fee to be $75 a mile annu
It is provided that on or before
January 1, 191 1, the board is tore
port to the governor a complete
anc comprehensive act relating to
highways and bridges to take the
place of all existing laws on those
Senator Sprout also introduced a
resolution permitting the State to
borrow $50,000,000 for the purpose
of constructing, improving and
maintaining public highways and
purchase of turnpikes. This would

School Code has Poor Chances.
Legislators Are Luke-warm in Regard to the
Thai the new school code bill
has a very remote chance of becom
inga law in its present shape is the
opinion of many men at HaTis
burg. There have been two hear
ings of the bill before the educa
tion committees of the senate
and house and 'these have brought
out the fact that not only are the
legislators lukewarm in their re
gard for it, but have also developed
the fact that there is a great diver
sity of opinion on the merits of the
measure among educators and men
who figure in the public eye.
So far the attitude of the Phila
delphia Republican organization,
of Philadelphia, toward the new
code has been puzzling to its
friends. They can not make
up their minds whether the organ
tzation looks on it with favor or
otherwise. Leaders among the
Philadelphia politicians have up
until now, when Senator Edwin
II. Vare broke the silence, been
mum when questioned about the
reform in the school system. Sen
ator Vare when asked what chance
the bill had of going through in its
present shape said :
' I have not the slightest idea as
to what its fate will be. I'have not
made a close study of the bill, but
I will say, and you cannot put ii
up to 'me too strong, that I will
never vote for a bill unless that bill
does away with the conditions that
now exist in my district. There
are now fully 3,000 children in the
first senatorial district who are un
able to go to school because there
are no accommodations for them.
This is the first great evil to be
remedied and unless there is a cure
for this appalling condition in any
?roposed legislation I will not vote
CAUGHT BY THE GRIP
RELEASED BY PE-RU-NA.
La Grippe Is Epidemic Catarrh.
THE disease now known as 'grip'
used to be called 'influenza.'
It very closely resembles a cold, but Is
more tenacious In He hold upon the
ay stem and producee more profound dis
turbance!. Grip is In reality epidemic catarrh.
When it once begins it spreads over the
country very rapidly.
People do not catch the grip from each
other, but each one catches it from the
"Most Effective Medicine Ever Tried
for La Grippe."
Robt. L. Madison, A. M., Principal of
Cullowhee High School, Painter, N. C,
is chairman of the Jackson County
Hoard of Education.
Ho is a writer of occasional verse and
has contributed to a number of leading
pnpera and magazines, religious, edu
cational and secular.
In speaking of Peruna, Mr. Madison
"I am hardly ever without Peruna in
my home. It is the most effective medi
cine that I have ever tried for la grippe.
"It also cured my wife of aasal ca
tarrh. Her condition at one time was
such that she could not at night breathe
through her nostrils.
"In consequence, an Inflamed condi
tion of the throat was brought about,
getting worse and worse and yielding
to no remedy until Peruna was tried."
Healthy Mucous Membranes.
Those who are fortunate enough to
have perfectly healthy mucous mem
branes ordinarily do not catch the grip.
The mucous membranes lining the
nose, throat and lungs, when In a
normal siate, are an effectual barrier
against the invasion of grip.
But, If there happens to be the slight
est catarrhal derangement of the
mucous membranes, then the victim be
comes an .-axicr prey to the grip.
This in part explains why some people-
get the grip, while others do not.
The rational thing to do is to keep the
system free from catarrh. In attempt
ing to do this most people have found
Peruna to be invaluable.
Systemic Catarrh, the Result of La
Grippe. Pe-ru-na Receives Credit
for Present Good Health.
Mrs. Jennie YV. Oilmore, Box 44,
White Oak, I nd. Ter., formerly House
keeper for Indiana Reform School for
"Six years ago I had la grippe, which
was followed by systemic catarrh.

McHenry Appeals lor Bulletins.
On Saturday Congressman Mc
Henry made a vigorous speech be
fore the house of epresentatives at
Washington, in his attsmpt lo hove
the appropriation for the publica
tion of farmers' bulletins increased,
lie directed attention to the fact
that the effectiveness of the agri
cultural department is handicapped
by lack of means to carry out its
purposes. He said that the agri
cultural industry is the greatest
wealth producer and of the total
appropriation made by congress
less than one per cent, is applied
to agriculture. Seventy per cent,
of the appropriations are for war
purposes, $10,000,000 go fcr In
dians and to maintain schools for
Indians, but we deny farmers ftee
access to the agricultural bureau
because of a lack of appropriations.
The conservation of natural resourc
es can be achieved in the develop
ment ot agriculture. Promot; t lie
fertility of the soil and you decrease
the cost of living and increase the
prosperity of the workiugmen. Un
less this is done we will be impart
ing wheat inside of tweilty-five
years. Agriculture was the sole
industry which saved the country
from absolute ruin during the re
cent panic Other industries fell
into a state of lethargy but the
farmer worked on and produced
that which brought the necessary
currency back into the channels of
commerce, uur present loreign
trade balances are due to agricul
tural products. The time is here
when nations must apply more
thought and means to production
and less to destruction. If the na
tion is to get economic returns for
the cost ot maintaining the agricul
ture department the six millions of
farmers of the country snould have
the information gleaned by the de
partment. They pay for this, have
a right to it and propose to see
that they get it.

During an epidemic of grip Peruna
should be used. The doses recom
mended on the bottle are sufficient.
After the grip has once been acquired,
Dr. Hartman recommends the use of
Peruna In teaspoonful doses every hour
during the acute stage, after which the
directions on the bottle should be fol
lowed. Experience has shown that the people
who use Peruna as a remedy for grip
generally recover sooner and are less
liable to the distressing and long-continued
after-effects of the grip.
When Peruna has not been nsed dur
ing the course of the grip and the patient
finds himself suffering from the after
effects of this disease, a course of Pernsa
should be resorted to.

Trouble Lively tor Both Sides.
The Prospects in Mining Region lor April
First.--May be a Bitter Clash.
It is about four weeks from the
first of April and the situation is
that the coal operators and the
mine workers are no nearer togeth
er today than they were five months
ago in fact they appear to be more
widely separated and the indica
tions are becoming more apparent
of either a bitter struggle between
the contending forces or for a mosl
humiliating back down by one or
the other of the contending sides.
Many of those in close touch
with the situation believe that the
whole thing is a corporation bluff
and that the leading mine workers !
and the leading coal magnates
thoroughly understand their plans,
but the whole thing may get away
Ironi them and there may be a
great clash, in fact the greatest
clash betweeu capital and labor
that this region has ever seen.

New Outbreak of Aphthous Fever,
Among Calilson Farm of S. E. Brownies in

Aphthous fever has again broken
out iu Clinton county. Last week
Dr. Heckman, one of the govern

stationed there since the first out
break, discovered the disease on'
the farm of S. ,K. Brovvulee, two
miles above Mackev ville. A herd
of fifteen cattle is infected.
The farm has been Quarantined.
Dr. Leonard Pearson, State veteri
