The Home Circle Self Taxation. People in general seem to en- joy growling about the taxes. This subject makes a theme for conversation in the family. It inspires the loungers in the cor- ner grocery, and it puts life into many a political campaign. Why, our forefathers actually plunged into rebellion, fought seven years, and finally won our national independence from Great Britain, on a question of taxes. If you want to see a "hot" town meeting in a back- country township, just propose an extra tax for some new road and a bridge. And yet there is one sort of Boys Don't. Don't cultivate a taste for liquor or tobacco. They do you no good. They are expensive, and until your tastes and stomach are perverted they rebe against them. Don't go out of the hall bet- ween acts. It looks bad. If you wish to let people know that you are there, you have the manager announce it. It's better taste. Don't forget that you are to run this great country some day —fill all the public offices, make all t...

For the Farmer The Evolution of Corn Growing. P. H. JACKSON. (From Farm and Hunch.) 1 very well remember how we grew oorn when I was a bit of a boy, nearly 40 years ago. It was something like this: Just before ; time-to plant—usually on land that had grown oorn the year During the 49 years that have intervened between my boyhood and this good year of grace, 1910 I have learned somethings about oorn—about growing more corn and better corn, with less oo9t; and in this article I purpose to set down, at the request of the editor Of Farm and Ranch, some of the things I have learned, hoping that from my experiences before, and had been tramped an(^ experiments, some of my fel and packed by the stock all 'ow farmer9 this great South- winterlong—we would take a Georgia stock (although it was not called a Georgia stock then, nor was it made in Georgia, but we hewed it out of a post oak or hickory tree growing on the place, and made it there on the place,) a bull-tongue and one horse; and wit...

The Home Circle A cruat of bread, a pitcher of water, a log cabin and pertect love—there ia happiness for you, whether the day be rainy or ahiny. It is the heart that makes the home, whether the eyes rests on a potato patch or flower Karden. The heart makes home preciona, and it is the only thing that can. Home ia where the heart ia. The bitterest teara shed over graves are for worda left unsaid and for deeds left undone. "She never knew that I loved her." He never knew what he waa to me." "I alwaya meant to make more of our friendahip." "I did not know what he waa to me un- til he waa gone." Such worda are the poisoned arrows whioh cruel death ahoota from the door of the sepulchre. The lady who laugha heartily ia a doctor without a diploma. Her face does more good in a sick room than a bushel of powd- ers or a gallon of bitter draughts. People are always glad to aee her.

IRONCLAD CASTE. Its Rule Among the Hindus Abso- lute and Unchangeable. THE POWER OF THE BRAHMAN All the Wealth of the World Would Not Enable a Lower Caste Hindu to Wed Into His Family or Touch His Hand—Tyrannical Social Divisions. Caste distinction in India is a thing difficult for a foreigner to comprehend, ill the racial or religious distinctions Which separate European nations from each other and divide them within themselves do not equal the number of classes Into which the Hindus arc di- vided by what is known as "caste." The 200.0(Kuh:(> Hindus are made up of diverse racial elements and speak about nineteen developed languages and over 1(10 dialects. They are again divided into over .'1,0(10 castes, most of them with subcastes.

For the Farmer The Evolution of Corn Growing. By P. It. Jackson in Fur 111 anil lluncli. Continued from last week. The Wide Row System. Now a few words about the wide row system. Several years ago I began this method on my farm. At the time, I had never seen any one else plant in wide rows, and strange to say, I had never read of any one doing so, although I now know that other men had fallen on the plan be- fore me. 1 was trying to hit up- on a plan by which 1 could get over more ground in a day and thus do my corn work easier. The harrow and weeder had greatly facilited matters for the first part of the cultivation, but when these had to be displaced by the cultivator in four foot rows, I lost time, and when still later the growing corn drove the two-horse cultivator out of the field and I had either to stop cultivation before it ought to be stopped, or else take the single you step over four feet to the next one, while 1, on the other side of the fence from you, step over eight f...

The Home Circle To The Front. The good men must always be at the front. It is not enough that there be more good men than bad, but they must be at the front everywhere and at all times. One man in a position of in- fluence is worth a thousand men single-handed and silent. It is a Christian's duty to wield all the influence he can honestly and judiciously, whenever he is. If a mechanic, be a leader as far as consistency will allow, in the councils of labor; if a "drum- mer" be a leader among com- mercial travelers; if a merchant, be as successful as conscience and circumstances permit; in politics, be always on hand; sacrifice time, convenience and comfort to be at the caucus and the polls. It requires more grace, more head and heart to be a leader in social, scholastic, mechanical, mercantile or politic- al life, constantly and consistent- ly, than it does to be the best deacon, superintendent or prayer meeting worker in the oity, and it is as essential in its way. Becoming Rich. To...

A newspaper, if it has any brains, conscience and muscle back of it, must continually de- cide between doing its duty and injuring its pocket. In any position but that of an editor, the public is able to separate the individual home from the colle- ctive citizen, But if an editor does not please them its at his pockets they aim. Thus it is the newspapers learn who their friends are. The man who reads the newspaper and admires it all the year around, yet gives his business support to some other concern, whosejprinciples or the aotions of its editor he detests, is not a friend tojthe former news* paper.
