Question — I hare a lot of refuse nil on hand. Would you advise putting it in my compost heap, and if so, in what proportion? Answer —Strictly speaking, salt is not a fertilizer, as an analysis shows it to contain little or no plant food. From ancient times, however, down to the present day it has been applied to land generally with beneficial results, so that experience, our best teacher, indorses its nse. On lands that are near enough to the sea to receive the salt spray, which storms often carry to a consider able distance inland, or on such lands as contain chlorine and soda in any form, salt would have no appreciable effect, but on soils of an opposite char acter an application of salt is frequently very beneficial. By some means its presence brings about a chemical change in the soil which renders available an additional ainonnt of plant food for the growing crops. Not only this, bat the great affinity it has for water causes it to attract from the dews and the vapors of the atmosphere an amount of mois ture, which, in a drouth, enables the crops to resist to some extent, the effeots of the dry weather. A liberal applica tion of salt is said also to prevent rust in cotton, though this is not well es tablished. Au additional benefit to be derived from an application of salt is that it kills the larvae of many noxious Insects, snob as entworms, etc. I would 'advise you to use it in your compost heap, in such proportion as that from t to U> bushels will be applied to the acru. —State Agricultural Department.

A LEGEND OF THE CHATTAHOOCHEE, At that point where the Chatta hoochee river takes its final plunge from the Piedmont region of Geor gia into the plains of the southern section of the state, and from whence a once turbulent, dashing mountain stream pursues its now tranquil, dignified course to the sunny southern sea, a promontory juts out from the rugged hills com prising the eastern boundry of the river. This is Lover's Leap, just one mile above the city of Culum bus, and around which is clustered one of the most beautiful Indian legends of the many interesting stories handed down to the pec pie of this section from the red men who once occupied these hills and valleys. High over the mighty stream which dashes and roars and tum bles many feet below, is the famed rock from which runs the Indian legend, leaped, many years ago, the “Young Eagle” of the Cowetas aud the “Morning Star” of the Cussetas, the two lovers the story of whose tragic fate has been hand ed down to this day. It will not be long before Lover’s Leap will lose its romance. The waters which roared and raced so freely in the days when the two In dian lovers leaped into their depths are to be chained and harnessed to do the bidding of man. An im mense dam is to be constructed across the stream from the very base of the historic rock, this be ing the site on which the plant of the Columbus Power Company iB to be built. Before the dreams and the romance of the spot are succeeded by the bustle and the transformation of an aggressive civilization, it may be well to re count the sad and yet simple story which is given down to us by the red men of the forest. Of all the Indian maidens of the tribe of the Cusetas, “Morning Star” was the brightest, most beautiful aud most popular. She was the daughter of the aged chief of the Cussetas, an old warrior, who was brave in battle, famed in council, and beloved by his tribe. Time had somewhat dimmed the once bright eye of the old man, and the flight of years had some what sapped him of his strength; but the indomitable spirit was still there, and around the council fire none could so enthuse like the old warrior of the forest. In the full vigor of their splendid young manhood, his brave sons had been slain, and now his only comfort and his sole joy was his daughter. Fleet of step and graceful as a wild fawn, “Morning Star” grew up in all the beauty and grace of a typ ical daughter of the forest, and her chief care and delight was to give delight to her aged father. In her early years the proud father called the starry-eyed child “Mine chee” (which means in the Indian tongue fleet, active); but, as time passed and she grew in grace and beauty, he called her “Morning Star.” This bright Indian maiden would rise with the birds, and the sweet music aud the gay laughter that awoke the old chief in the cool, pleasant morning hours were often the combined serenade given by his daughter and the feathered songsters outside. It was not strange that with the young braves of the tribe of the Cussetas “Morning Star” should be popular. They likened her un to a bright and beautiful being from spirit land, and in the sun shine of her presence they were ev er happy. The young men of the forest ware stirred by precisely the same emotions which are now agi tating the bosoms of the pale faces of a century later, and the homage that was paid to the graceful maid en was as natural as it was sincere. There were many suitors, and among them was Yaho Hadjo. Yaho Hadjo was a traitor. Un der the garb of friendship and loy alty to his chief, he had cunningly ingratiated into himself the favor of the old warrior and had secured a fine footing at the head wigwam. It was by these secret methods that he hoped to end a rivalry for the hand of “Morning Star,” and to consummate his cruel plans he decided upon a course which cul minated in unhappiness to all con cerned, ending 111 the dread tragedy of Lover’s Leap. For Yaho Hadjo had a rival,and him he hated with all the intensi ty of his Indian nature. When Morning Star was a child she was betrothed to Young Eagle, the no ble son of the chief of the Cowetas, another oowerful Indian tribe. But a rivalry sprang up betweeu the two nations of red men, and this rivalry promised to ripen into war It was a long and deadly fend, and the braves who once smoked together the pipe of peace became the bitterest enemies. Al though separated, the two lovers did not forget the plighted vows. Their love was a love that was more than a love, and it matured and strengthened as the years passed by. In time the lovers be gan to secretly meet. A short distance below Lover’s Leap a silvery stream glides into the Chattahoochee. Beginning its flow among the bays and magnoli as, it at last falls into the river in •a succession of little sparkling 1 cascades. It was on the lovely 1 stream, known as the “Silver Wampum,” that the two lovers j were prone to meet. In a beati- , ful sylvau retreat made fragrant , and attractive by the flowers aud ,| blossoms carried there by the no- 6 ble young Coweta, these two chil- j dreu of the forest exchanged their confidences and whispered sweet stories of love. Young Eagle lived in Paradise during this blissful pe riod, and the maiden, little dream ing of what would be the end of ® these pleasant meetings, enjoyed the full happiness of them. Many a morning the old chief r would find suspended at his wig- c warn the most splendid triumphs of the chase and specimens of a 1 bold hunter’s skill. On such oc- 1 casions, not dreaming of the source of these handsome offerings, which were contributed by the young 1 Coweta, he would praise Yaho j Hadjo (Crazy Wolf) for his indns- f try and thoughtfulness. Thus c Yaho Hadjo profited by all this. d In the meantime, Yaho Hadjo was working by day and by night to moro thoroughly embitter the relations between the Cussetas and the Cowetas. The Coweias want ed peace, influenced by Young Ea gle ; but the Cussetas listened to the words of Yaho Hadjo and re lations became more strained eve ry day. The two lovers, aware of the situation, no longer dared to meet by day, and it was only by night, under the friendly stars, that they now met to renew their vows. But Yaho Hadjo was watching. One night he followed Morning Star to the trysting place and his jelous eyes were obliged to witness the tender meeting that followed. Swearing vengeance, he laid shrewd plans. Going to the old chief, he told a malignant falsehood of how the Cowetas had broken faith and of a treacherous raid the rival tribe was even then contemplating. He advised caution, and saying that Young Eagle was the inspirer of the whole unfair plot aud might even then be lingering about with a hope of capturing Morning Star, he suggested that a handsome re ward be privately offered for the scalp of the young Coweta brave. The old man was for a fiery decla ration of war and for coping with the enemy fairly and as became Cussetas, but he rather reluctant ly obeyed the suggestion of his wily young cautioner. “Go tell my young warriors,” said he, “that he who brings to me the scalp of Young Eagle shall wear on his brave heart the Morn ing Star of the Cussetas.” Yaho Hadjo aroused a few sleep ing braves and started for the Sil ver Wampum. The unsuspecting lovers wore caught entirely by surprise. Just as they were saying a last lingering farewell stealthy footsteps were heard approaching, aud glancing around, they beheld the attacting braves, with uplifted tomahawks, rushing madly upon them. To clasp his lover to his bosom was but the work of a moment with Young Eagle, and the next instant, thus encumbered, he was speeding away, with the Cussetas in mad pursuit. Rushing up the steep, winding path, the young clfief reached the summit of the prom ontory, by which, far below roared the rapids. At this place he would fain release the maiden and save her from furtor peril, but she clung to him with all the tenacity of her love. A moment later and Yaho Hadjo was upon them. His tomahawk was uplifted and all hope of escape was cut off. It was fate, however, that the assassin should be foiled. Clasp ing each other firmly and fondly, the two loveis advanced to the edge of the precipice, and without a moment’s hesitation, jumped into the seething waters below. That was the last ever seen of them. Yaho Hadjo was striking ALL OVER GEORGIA. ITEMS FROM OUR STATE EXCHANGES } There is a case of small-pox in ' Early county.

Barnesville has the largest un when they made the leap, and the impetus was enough to hurl his body to the rugged bowlders be low, where he met instant death, When they told the old chief the sad story he could scarce compre hend it. Again and again the de tails were repeated, and at last the tragic truth, in all its pathos, had forced itself upon his soul. With a heart-rending cry, he fell to the earth. He finally regained con sciousness, and in a few days later he left his wigwam and went to a ravine in the bluffs, signifying his desire to remain alone. It was there that, a day or two later,they found him dead. Grief had bowed the haughty soul and broken the man of iron.
