“That, my son, is the chaplain,” re

“Does tie pray for the Senators?”

.ENLARGING THE SMALL TOWN..
Within the next twenty years it seems
certain tllfit two movements will tnko
place thnt will enlarge the small town.
One of these will be the migration of
business and professional men ami.their
families to towns of 6,000 to 'JO,000
located within a llfty-mllo radius of
cities in which they work during the day.
The other will be the decentralization
of Industry, and the movement of both
factories and working forces from the
city to the small town.
With improved living conditions, fac
tories will favor sinnll town sites, fig
uring thnt they will thus reduce their
labor lurnovor, nnd save enough in over
head, taxes, nnd interest on expensive
city sites to more thnn compensate
them for the disadvantages of doing
business in a small town.
If this adjustment dons take place it
will solve many of our most perplexing
problems, for there is no question that
our cities are getting too big. A city,
like a business, can got so large that
the law of diminishing returns begins to
operate. It is an established principle
that when a business grows beyond n
certain point the return on the capital
The snmo principle npplies to cities.
Big cities have Such problems ns trans
portation, housing, henltli, fire and po
lice protection, from which the small
town is lnrgcly free.
The factors which nre doing much to
hasten this decentralization are the au
tomobile, moving picture, and the talk
ing machine, all of recent invention.
The automobile has shortened the dis
tance between the small town nnd the
big city by 76 per cent.
Tho motion picture hns given the
small town tho cheapest nnd most pop
ular form of entertainment ever devised,
while the talking machine lias enabled
the people to hear the. world's best mu-
sip right in their own homes.

Power, late of Coweta county, Oa.,

MRS. MILTON KEITH POWER,
Little Willie, who for Some months had
always ended his evening prayer with
“I’leaso Bend me a baby brother,” an-,
nouneed to his motliar that lie was tired
of praying for what ho did ndt get nnd
thnt he did not believe God had any
more little boys to send. Not long after
wards ho was carried into his mother’s
room very early in the morning to seo
his twin brothers, who lind arrived dur
ing the night. Willie looked nt the two
babies critically and then remarked:
“It’s a good thing I stopped praying
when I did.”
People Eat Only With the Right Hand
—Animal Life of Every Descrip
tion Held Sacred.
The average Afghnn 1ms no particu
lar fondness for wine or spirits.
Tobacco raised In the land Is of In
ferior quality; the better sorts are
imported from Persia, Kussla, India
aud Egypt. Amir llabbibutlah Khan
always had n good private stock of
Havann cigars. Both young uud old
people take snuff.
Ten, sweetened and unsweetened, IS
the favorite drink nnd Ir consumed In
prodigious quantities. When you go
to see an Afghnn, you can hardly es
cape before swallowing four or five
cups of ten; It Is, therefore, no trlillDg
gastronomic feat to pny several visits
In one afternoon, the more so If he
polite host (with a vlow of honoring
the European guests) hns the tea
served In big Russian glasses.
The right hand Is nlwnys used In
eating nnd drinking, (ho left bnnd be
ing considered unclean.
Dogs, though numerous nnd useful,
arc looked upon ns undonn, nnd pious
people never touch them.
Animals thnt go badly lame on the
march or camels that get snowbound
In the mountain passes nre abandoned
to their fnto. Afghans never kill such
animals, ns "we might do, to pat them
out of their misery. They believe thnt
the lives of nil living things nre In tho
hands of Allah, nnd that man sins If
he presumes to Interfere with the Su
premo Will. Afghans will not even kill
Hens or other vermin; they merely pick
.them oft nnd throw them away!—

POCAHONTAS NOT REAL NAME
Literally Means “Tomboy” and Wat
Given to Indian Child as a
Term of Ridicule.
The story of John Smith ami Poca
hontas Is known to everyone who 1ms
attended school In the United States,
but few knew tlmt the mimo Pocahon
tas was only a nickname, ami meant
so unpoetlcul u tiling as "tomboy."
Her real inline was .Mn-l«-okii. When
she was about ten or eleven years old
sho was engaged In turning u series of
handsprings at the door of her futher’H
hut. Ho was (lie chief of tho tribe,
und wus known ys Pow-lm-tim, al
though Ills roul name was A-hun-so-na-
cook, itn-bun-tii, an Indian runnur,
came leaping through tho forest with
a message for tile chief. He turuud
the corner of the hut Just ns the little
daughter of the chief iniiUe one of her
most vigorous wheels. Her Hying feet
struck him In the chest und knocked
IiVltans dourly love a rough Joke,
and a great shout of laughter went up,
although the chief was anything but
pleased, and called his daughter sharp
ly to him. "This Is not maiden's play,”
he said. “Will you nover cease to be
a po-cn-hun-tus?" The children caught
up the name, and It clung to the little
girl ever afterward. The English
changed the spelling a bit, but the
name hns come down In history utmost
as It wus given away back In 1007.
Two/ farmers mot after church as
usual, mfd had lids conversation:
“Hold your pig?”
‘ ‘ Yes.' ’
“ Wlmt d'ye get?”
“Wlmt’il it cost, ye to raise it?”
“Paid- #.'t for tho shout, $5 for the
lumber in the pen and house, und $3
more for the food.”
“Didn’t make much, did ye?”
“ No, but I hud the uso of the pig all
summer. ’ ’
