Farmers, families are not
now nearly so isolated as they
were a few years ago when their
only means of communication
with each other and with the
towns was over roads deep in
mud in winter and disagreeable
because of the dust in summer.
Life on the farm now is not only
but is made pleasant
in sections where these
have been provided. A
farmer living miles from his

mail can now have his letters
and his daily newspaper delivered
daily at his door. His wife and
daughters can have intercourse

minimize the labor cf getting
products to market.
As these four aids to comfort
of farm life are extended in
area that life will become more
popular and there will be less of
the migration from country to
town, which has been so notice-
in the past. The rural dis-
will no longer be drained
of their best people, seeking
towns because of the
comforts and conveniences pf
the latter. Life on the i arm will
become a different thing, and
we look for the tide to turn and
to see the town people seeking

In recent years it has become
a fad for college students, at
their graduation, to wear caps
and gowns The custom has
been adopted some of the col-
in this State and we note
with interest that even at de-

Forest the cap and gown will be
in evidence at this year's com-
So long as the col-
students are clothed and in
their right minds conduct
sometimes leaves one in doubt
about the we suppose we
have no right to object to any-
thing they do. Anyway the cap
and gown comes along with the
affected among all classes
of wearing glasses which are not
only of no service but are often
absolutely hurtful to the eyes,
and of spending about per
cent, of the time developing
by playing foot ball ard
baseball instead of cultivating

cultivation the chief aim. But
after all these things do the Gen-
tiles seek the cap and Moth-

Three ways are used by farmers
for curing and preparing their to-
for the market; namely sun
cured, air cured and flue cured.
The old and cheap way is called air
cured; the later discovery and
proved way is called flue cured.
In flue curing the tobacco is taken
from the fields and racked in barns
especially built to retain heat and
there subjected to a continuous high
temperature, produced by the direct
heat of flame heated flues, which
brings out in the tobacco that
stimulating taste and aroma that
expert roasting develops in green
coffee. These similar processes give
to both tobacco and coffee the cheer-
and stimulating quality that pop-
their use.
The quality of tobacco depends
much on the curing process and the
kind of soil that produces it, as ex-
pert tests prove that this flue cured
tobacco, grown in the famous F
region, requires and takes
sweetening than tobacco

and has a wholesome,
juicy, full tobacco taste that

cheers more than any other
