the attention of congress in the
matter of deep waterways. The lakes
to-the-gulf project is the largest and
most important scheme for an inland
waterway that has ever been proposed
in this country and would benefit
more than one-third of the
states of the union. An Initial min-

wishes to furnish the central part
of the United States with a waterway
which will enable the movement of the
largest freight and passenger vessels
to serve the expense from the Rocky
Mountains to the 2.765.-
square miles. The region is among
the most productive in the world, and,
with water transportation to compete
with rail, it will have the advantage
of unequaled facilities. The Illinois
and Mississippi rivers will be the
main arteries of the proposed system,
with the tributaries as laterals. In
general, the plans provide for a great
system of waterways to connect all
Interior states, with outlets on the
great lakes and the Gulf of Mexico.

Although the disease is seen and
re more prominently in the
bolls, it also occurs on the leaves
and stems. Cotton growers should
know that this disease is carried
from season to season the seed,
and that seed from a sick boll, even
though very slightly diseased, may
raise a diseased plant, and this in
turn may spread the disease to the
whole crop of the next season. There
is no satisfactory treatment, and the
one point to be remembered is that
seed from diseased fields is likely to
carry the disease. In fact, almost
sure to do so. Even seed from clean
fields which has passed through a
gin in which diseased cotton has
been ginned is dangerous. It is of
Utmost importance for the grower to
be sure that his cotton seed does not
come from a field or from a region
where this prevails.

way. The progress of the times de-
intensive cultivation and
farming, and that is
employed the soil becomes more pro-
and valuable. Many land
owners In this county can afford to
most give away parcels of land in
order to get good near neighbors and
friends. Ten good live. farmers
on and properly cultivating ten
farms of acres each are much
better than one man trying to manage
and cultivate a farm of 1.000 acres.
And the division may be carried much
further, for twenty farmers make a
richer and better community than
How cheap and abundant land
make for poor cultivation every corn-
pa between American and
European farming shows. As the de-
for land grows greater and its
price rises an altogether different sort
of farming is pursued. Hence the
very cheapness and abundance of land
in the South have tended to keep
progress back. Our lands, on the
average, are decidedly more valuable
and better cultivated than they were
twenty years ago, but we still have
too much for our own present good,
whatever the future value of the
plus may be.
One particularly unfortunate result
of over-large holdings, as the
observations show, is to promote
and thereby render less de-
rural life. The isolation tends
to keep away productive settlers who
might otherwise come, to drive the
rural population into the towns be-
cause of the social hardships involved,
and to operate unfavorably In every
way. It occurs to us that the
plan of homes at the corners of
such farms as The
News recommends would go far to-
ward solving the problems presented
here. In this way the farmer and his
family live in or villages, not
alone near the center of their own
farm. Of course if the farm is not
larger than one family can properly
cultivate to dispense with a central
site would count for almost no In-
convenience at all. The farmer and
his family would gain advantages
which they would doubtless have had
long ago by the means described but
for the excessive size of their farms.
When we get more people and more
in the them In spite
of the unattractive conditions which
few people and few farms create
farmers will at any rate live closer
together. The attractiveness of South-
farm life will be enormously In-
creased, and the special dangers that
have led many to advocate rural pa-
will almost altogether

Van The Only Animal That
Of course the fact that man is the
only animal that worries is but a
demonstration of the superiority of
the human mind over that of the
lower animals. Animals are not
en to looking backward, and, as a
rule, they do not look very far into
the future; on the other hand the
mind of man sweeps back over past
ages, and. from the page of history,
as veil as from the perplexing
dents of the present, forms those con-
which cause him to look with
fear and trembling Into the future.
The causes of human worry are In-
deed varied, but in the last analysis
they are usually found to consist of
sonic form of Irritation, anxiety or
fear. It not frequently develops that
numerous habits of life and physical
practices are contributory to the
habit. The use of alcohol and
other forms of psychic and physical
transgression are often discovered to
the handmaidens of worry and
sorrow. Lack self control is an-
other great cause worry, A strong
will would cure nine-tenths of this
unnecessary form or grief.
Whatever the Immediate cause
worry a tor our own gen-
welfare, material prosperity and
mental happiness, or that of our loved
ones, must be recognized as the real
cause of all our worry. worry
lest we may lose or fail to obtain
those material blessings which will
make us and our friends happy.
The desire for happiness is gene-
ally found to the real, fundamental
cause of worry. But is It not

no circumstances can worry ever con-
