It is a fact well established by stu dents of heredity that children are apt to inherit not only the physical, mental and moral traits of their parents, but to be influenced by their age as well. Children born of very young fathers or mothers never attain vigorous a growth of mind or body as those of older men or women, while children of old people are born old. One of the most surprising cases in medical history is that of Marguerite Cribsowna, who died in 1763, aged 108 years. When 94 she was married to a man aged 105. Three children came of this union, but they had gray hair, no teeth, were stooped, yellow and wrinkled, decrepit in movement, and could only eat bread and vegetable.—New York Sun.

I The State Board of Education held an important meeting in the office of the State School Commissioner at Atlanta, January 10th, at which it was determ ined to make an enumeration of the school population of the State. Under the law such an enumeration is required every ten years at least, though not more frequently than every five years. It has now been five years since the last enum eration, and in view of thc rapid growth of the sentiment in support of more gen eral education, the board thought it would be well to know just what the State's responsibility is iu this respect. Work on thc enumeration, which will be conducted under the direction of State School Commissioner Bradwell, will be gin at once, and the commissioner is of the opinion that he will be able to complete it by May next. When the last enumeration was made the school population of the State was 250,000. It will now probably reach considerably over 250,000, and the expense of mak ing the enumeration will amount to$15,- 00U or $20,000. . Besides ordering the school census the board in passing on a case from Cobb county, which made thc point, provided that hereafter history shall be part of the curriculum of the common schools of thc .^tate. County boards under the action of the State Board are allowed to prescribe what his tory shall be used, but the use of some history is made compulsory. Two Factions at War Wttb Each Other | Open Fric—Wild Confunlon In the Sanctuary—The Killed and Wounded. j Anderson, Ind., Jau. 10.—The j Lawson-S win foul vendetta broke ! out in Forest Chapel Sunday during ; the services, and as a result two i persons are dead and seven wounded. ] Forest Chapel is five miles from j this city. The Lawsons are Ken- | tuckians, number fully a score, and j are full of fight. Thc Swinfonls | live a mile from the Lawson family, j They are and have been for ye i j deadly enemies of the Lawson fami-1 ly. Irving Lawson is the leader of his faction, and young Albert j Swiuford was the leader of the Swinfords. There have been a number of hostile meetiugs between the factions in the past. Sunday the Swinfords appeared in public places wearing red ribbons. The Lawsons knew by this sign that their old time enemies were after them, and they accordingly armed themselves. The little church was crowded, and the subject of the ser mon was “Peace on earth, good will to men.” Suddenly there was a crash near the door of the chapel and the fight began. The com batants were scattered all over the room, and slung shots and other weapons were in the air. Thc wor shippers were panic-stricken. Shot after shot rang out. The Lawsons were retreating and the Swinfords were fo.lowing them. The Lawsons finally succeeded in dragging their wounded men from tbe house and and started to cross to a strip of woods. The Swioford faction fol lowed them., but .a short distance, be*~ ing held off by^ tbe rapid firihg of tbe retreating party. The dead are Bill Lawson, shot through tbe head ; Albert Swinford, stabbed in the neck. The wounded are Saiut Munis, bruised about the head and face; Arthur Lawson, several bruises and cats; Irving Lawson, seven bad cuts on the scalp, since reported dead ; Joe Swinford, ear cat off; Joe Hartsell, shall fractured, may die. The three Democratic members of j the Kansas Legislature hold the bal- I ance of power, and virtually kicked | tbe third partyite9 out of the ring j yesterday. This is as it should be, 1 the affairs of the State will be safer under the control of Republicans than it could be in tbe hands of those who propose all schems and no govern ment. A A Fault whlrh the Southern Farmet Would Do Well to Correct. A great fault with the southern farm er is not looking ahead. Instead of driving his business he often waits for his business to drive him. One conse quence of this habit is half-done work. Not having looked ahead and made all necessary preparations, hc is driven by the urgency of the case to do his work in a loose and hasty manner. IIow many of us have sown our grain as it ought to be? Experience shows that grain well sowed scarcely fails to make a good crop. Ss we can not cul tivate small grain after it is sowed, it is the more important to prepare the soil well before sowing. This is impor tant. because these grains are disposed to send down their roots very deep into the subsoil in search of food and moisture. It is a very com mon error to suppose that wheat and oats an? very shallow rooted. To in sure a good crop and enable them to stand the freezes of winter, we should plow very deep. The clay subsoil should l»c’ deeply and thoroughly bro ken. and it is better to do this early in the fall before the clay has become sat urated with the water of the winter rains, lint when we have failed to look ahead and get all the plans ready, and the manure ready, we a re not apt to plow often enough or deep enough, or manure enough. Some claim that every time you run a good harrow over the land, after thor onghly breaking it, yon will make an additional bushel to the acre. I am not prepared to prove or dis prove this, but my experience in clines me to believe it. Not long since I was preparing a piece of land for barley. After plowing twice ami subsoiling, I ran a heavy harrow over it. I wan very much disappointed iu the condition the harrow left it, but after going over the same land xvith*the same barrow in three different direc tions, I began to be very much pleased. Most farmers do not take time to pre pare the land deep and fine for small grain, and then think it strange that they failed to get a gooff crop. Now, I wish to ask every one to take time ami prepare one acre thoroughly for wheat, and one for oats, and see if the increased yield will not more than repay for the work. Look ahead, and get ready for it in time. What I have said about sowing grain is true about everything on the farm. Prepare to keep your lot manure up out of the weather; prepare to keep your stock well housed and clean. If by any mishaixyou have failed to raise enough provision for the past year, now is the time to lookahead and buy them cheap. If you. will need an other mule, you can save very largely by buying now. I am aware that very many are ready to say: **I have not the money.'* Well, the reason is, you failed to look ahead and be ready. You are not running your business, but let ting it run you. This will continue to lie the ease until you begin to look ahead and calculate more closely and use wiser economy. Economy does not consist in the smallness of the amount spent, hut in the prudence or wis dom used in spending it. One man inay spend very little and be very ex travagant: another may spend a great quantity of money and yet be very economical. The economy consists in the way it is spent. Look ahead, and see what you will be able to do with the very small amount most of us will have to use. No better use can lie made of the fall and winter months than studying how to make another crop without making another debt. “The prudent man forseeth the evil and liideth himself.” Prudence is often the highest kind of sense.—Industrial American. —Poor butter in neat packages will m;11 better than good butter in “mussy," dirty looking packages, but good but- The Cash Drug Store desires to inform the public, that they arc agent for the most successful preparation that has yet now as it can carry safely.
