Don’t Thresh Your Oats
If you will bring your corn in shuck, and oats in sheaves, we will grind
them together, adding molasses to make feed dustless and palatable for stock.
This will give you as good a feed as can be made from grain, and at same
time utilize every pound of your products. You will increase your feed some
thing like 28 per cent., after expenses are paid, you furnishing bags. If you
are out of corn, bring your oats, as this by itself will make a good feed. For
your information will say that your oats must be thoroughly cured.
“^If your merchant does not handle our feed you can buy direct from us at
the following prices:
McBRIDE GROUND MOLASSES FEED, $1.60 per 100 lbs.
McBRIDE ALFALFA MOLASSES FEED, $1.70 per 100 lbs.
Very truly yours,
McBride Grain and Feed Co.
The daisies peep from every field.
And violets sweet their odor yield;
And purple blossom paints the thorn.
And streams reflect the blnsh of morn;
Then lads and lasses, all be gay.
For this is Nature’s holiday.
Let busy labor drop his flail,
Nor woodsman’s axe a tree assail:
The ox shall cease its neck to bow.
And clodden yield to rest the plough.
Behold the lark in ether float.
While rapture swells the liquid note;
What warbles he, with merry cheer?
“Let love and pleasure rule the year.”
Lo! Sol looks down with radiant eye.
And throws a smile around his sky.
Embracing hill and vale and stream.
And warming Nature with his beam,
The insect tribes in myriads pour.
And kiss with zephyr every flower;
Shall these our icy hearts reprove.
And tell us what are foes to love?
Then lads and lasses all. be gay.
For this is Nature’s holiday.
The Need for Standard Cotton Ware
Washington, May 4.— The cotton
warehouses already in existence are
ample in aggregate storare capacity,
according to a recent survey made by
the U. S. Department of Agriculture,
to store as much of the crop as there
is any need for, b ’t they ate poorly dis
tributed. The best are not available to
the farmer, and the charges of the
others are higher than he is disposed to
piy. These factB complicate the financ
ing of the crop, end are largely respon
sible for keeping so many cotton far
mers under the blight of the credit
system. A better system of ware
houses would do much to help the situ
Cotton, according to the Government
specialists, is considered the very best
collaferal, and bankers and business
men in general are willing to lend
money on it at lower interest than on
"real estate. An essential condition is,
however, that the cotton be properly
stored and insured. At the present,
though thia is very rarely done. The
farmers are accustomed to dispose of
their crop at the earliest possible mo
ment and in the nearest town. Much
of the crop, if not all of it, is frequent
ly pledged in advance, in order to ob
tain supplies for the farmer. Even
when the price drops as low as it did
in the fall of 1914, the need of imme
diate cash induces the farmer to sell most
of his cotton. If thia is not done much
of the crop is left insufficiently pro
tected and suffers wbat is known to the
trade as “country damage.” •
On the other hand, it is pointed out
on a new publication of the U. S. De
partment of Agriculture that an ade
quate warehouse system would enable
the farmers to store their co ton at
prices lower than those charged for the
same service now, because the in
surance rates on cotton stored in a
standard' warehouse would be much
lower than at the present time. Since
cotton is regarded generally as safe
collateral, the merchant would be will
ing to extend time to the farmer if ware
house receipts were deposited with him
as colliteral. The local bank would
take these receipts from the merchant
as further accommodation, and the
larger bank, from which the lo :al bank
has in all probability obtained the loan,
would also extend time. In this way
the crop could be marketed grad tally
and prices stabilized in consequence.
Moreover, such a system would tend
to free the farmers, especially those cf
the tenant class, from the endless
chain of debt. It would not, of course,
end at once or completely the credit
system, by which the supply merchant
sometimes obtains interest of from 25
to 35 cents on a dollar’s worth of sup
plies. If, however, such cotton as was
absolutely necessary to settle accounts
was stored and economy in living prac
ticed, many of the more determined
growers should in the course of two or
three years be able to place themselves
on a cash basis.
At the present time the best ware-
hou’es have been put up by factories
and mills for their own use, and are of
no service to the farmer. The owners
of small warehouses in which the far
mer can store hit cotton are usually
losing money on the investment, largely
because of poor construction and cor
respondingly high rates of insurance.
The Government investigators present
a number of interesting statistics to
show that in many cases it is actually
more expensive to put up and operate
an interior warehouse than one of stan
dard design. For example, in Georgia
and North Carolina tne insurance rate
is reduced about 80 per cent, by the use
of sprinklers. Unquestionably, says
the report, a great saving could be ef
fected by the erection and proper equip
ment of modern warehouses. Assum
ing the annual crop to be 16,000,000
bales, a sufficient number of such ware
houses could be constructed and
equipped with automatic sprinklers for
$64,000,000 or less. If all of thia crop
were to be stored for six onths the
saving in insurance alone would be ap
proximately $7,000,000. As a matter
of fact many of the existing ware
houses could be remodeled satisfactori
The bulletin does not attempt to give
any details of an ideal warehouse sys
tem, and there are many difficulties in
the way of the establishment of such.
It does, however, assert that improve
ment in this respect will do much to
make cotton growing a more stable

Once upon a time a certain man in
South Carolina forgot to pay any por
tion of his pastor’s salary.
Near the end of the year an officer
of the church waited upon him an I

The man flatly refused to be cheerful.
“I won’t pay a cent,” he declared
Btoully. “Not a cent. That preacher
hasn’t been to see me this year.”
When the matter was reported, as
such matters are, the preacher, as
preachers will, felt that he had fallen
short of his duty, and took the blame
upon himself. But he determined that,
should he be spared for another year’s
work, he would call upon his offended
brother, who thus yearned for his so
Accordingly he made it convenient to
call four times during the following
year. Still the man paid nothing, and

Great German Port Now Desolate.
A vivid picture of Hamburg and its
fine harbor in war times is given by
the Tagliche Rundschan, of Amsterdam.
In normal times it is one of the busiest
seaports in the world, the commerce
laden ships thronging the docks and the
broad face of the Elbe, funnelH brook
ing, sirens shrieking, machinery creak
ing, life swarming around the wharves
and storage houses.
Now, however, says the writer, the
harbor of Hamburg is desolate. The
gulls search in vain for their food, the
thickest fogs call forth no warning sig
nals, the cold spring sunshine falls on no
smoke or rushing steam, the gates of
the great bonded stores are closed,
ami grass grows in the (lagged courts.
In the pre-war days all roads led to
the harbor; now these roads are deso
late, and only a wanderer here and
there denotes that some isolated indi
vidual still takes an interest in the vast
area of the harbor. Wherever one
looks the hulls of huge vessels and
their gaunt smokestacks are seen
thick Bteel cah.es fastening them to
anchors in the Elbe mud or to the shore.
Not a flag or pennant flutters from
their masts, no passenger or sea
man gazes over their sides, no call
comes from an officer on th . bridge.
Here and there you see an old sailor on
deck as caretaker. His younger com
panions are all away at the war.
It is sad to look at those giant hulks,
with the paint peeling off them. You
look at their names and are sorrowful.
Over there is a magnificent South
American liner, an imposing CoIobbub
with her three funnels. There was a
time when she proudly sailed down the
Elbe to the ocean, her hands playing and
thousands on shore waving her rheir
adieus. Now she lies still as the grave,
fastened immovably by her iron chains.
On the other side of the river at
Kuhwarder lie the eerried ranks of the
Hamburg American liners, tier on tier
of them, their Hides scraped and un
sightly. We are told that they are all
that managed to got home in time. In
other great docks and along stretches
of quay are the tall, graceful masts of
the sailing ships, dry for"Hts of them—
dead forests without a sign of life.

Women on the Jury.
M. WickofT, in Birmingham Agc-Huruld.
“Just to think, to be on a jury,”
said one woman to another at a recent
trial. “Wouldn’t it be awful?” And
she looked pityingly at the twelve faces
in the jury box.
“Oh, I don’t know as it would,” re
plied the other, cautiously transferring
her chewing gum to the other side of
her mouth. “There wouldn’t be the
work to do, and you would get paid
regular, and — ”
"But think of having to bn locked
up all the time,” objected the first.
"I’d be just wild not to be allowed
to go downtown or anything; and. good
ness! why, they won’t let you Hee any
body or talk about it a bit, or even read
a paper! I don’t see how they can tell
what is going on in court unless they
read the paper. I never can. Of
course, regular lawyers know what it
all means, but just ordinary people
“But, of course, you wouldn't send
anybody to jail for life or anything like
that, if he was married, for what would
his wife and children do? So you don’t
have to pay much attention to what
they are saying. I’d rather know
right away as soon as I saw the man
whether he did or not, and after you’ve
once made up your mind you can kind
of rest, you know.”
“But think of being shut up with all
thoBo women for a week! Wouldn't
you just want to scratch their eyes out?
My, but I hate them! I’m just that inde
pendent, you know, that I wouldn't
have them snooping around to see how
much powder I was using, and whether
I put up my hair nights, or whether it
was naturally curly!”
“But they go to a hotel for their
meals, and don't have to pay a cent. I
just love hotel cooking, don’t you? And
then not having to pay for it! Of
course, when you are in the room you
are supposed to be talking over the
thingB that they have said about the
man, but you could get lots of ideas
from those other women about clothes
and things. I think it would be awfully
“And when it was necessary, you
know the forewoman could juBt tap her
pencil on the table and say. ‘Now,
girls, we must really get to work and
find out what we are going to decide to
do about that man,’ ’’ put in the other
with an anticipatory smile. “I know
we would acquit this one on account of
his wife's devotion to him.”
"That’s all right for the public,”
granted the would-be jury woman with
some skepticism, “but I’ll just wager
that they fight like cats and dogs at
“That, my dear,” Baid the other
amusedly, “is just a sample of the
way we would disagree in the jury
Alabama and Washington are fol
lowing the Texas idea and erecting cot
tages for the teachers of the rural
schools. The idea is to do away with
the old and never satisfactory plan of
“hoarding around,” a relic of pioneer
days. In Texas the school directors
erect these cottage near the school-
house and one county has six of them.
In one town the citizens bought the
land and erected the house by public
subscription. This place has six acres
of land around it. In other places the
teacherH have five or six room cottages,
live together on the co-operative plan
and hire a woman to do the housework.
Texas has over one hundred teacher’s
cottages. The plan gives the teachers
a chance fur privacy and a touch of
home life that is lacking under the sys
tem in vogue in other places. It is
likely that the plan will continue to ex
tend until there is a teacher’s cottage
in every school district.
