Big Cattle Deal.

Thursday of last week one of the largest cattle deals ever made in Hamilton county was consumated when W. M. Webb of this county, and Lee Bird of Suwannee county, purchased 137 head of cattle belonging to the estate of the late A. W. Miller. The price paid was $25.50 per head, a total of $3,493.50 for the herd.

Hamilton county is one of the finest stock raising sections in the state and these gentlemen have made a wise investment.

High School Students of the Nation Should Receive Military Training
By Adjutant General FRED T. WOOD, Minnesota National Guard

I am for universal military training in our public schools – in our high schools. I would teach every blessed boy in every states who attends high schools how to handles a rifle, how to take care of himself – in brief, how to be a soldier. Pope said, “Teach the young idea how to shoot.” He spoke more wisely perhaps than he knew.


I have in Minnesota seven or eight corps of high school boys who are receiving military instruction, They have their regular drills, instruction in marksmanship, camp life and everything else a soldier must know. I have any number of boys ten years old who can handle a rifle better than I can.

This is the kind of universal military training that I favor – call it compulsory service, if you like. WHETHER THE COUNTRY IS PREPARED FOR THE OTHER KIND OF UNIVERSAL SERVICE I DO NOT KNOW.

The Origin of Carrier Pigeons.

The origin of the use of the carrier pigeon is lost in obscurity, but the first people of whom we have any record of employing it are the Greeks. By them it was used with great success, and the knowledge they had acquired they imparted to the Romans, who first used it as a message bearer about 120 years before the Christian era. About 500 years ago pigeons formed part of a telegraphic system adopted by the Turks, who erected high towers thirty or forty miles apart. They were provided with pigeons, and sentinels stood constantly ready to secure the messages as the birds arrived. – London Standard

Prompt Decisions.

Learn to act promptly. In the affairs of this life a prompt decision is often more important than a right decision. One man makes up his mind and acts, it may be wrongly, but if so he finds out his mistake, correct and retrieves it before another man has acted at all. It is possible to waste a great amount of time by thinking and still more by talking over actions. Learn to act promptly.

Government and Business Must Co-Operate In Upbuilding of American Industry
By EDWARD N. HURLEY, Formerly Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission

Our business men and our government have been losing valuable time during the past twenty years in trying to settle our economic and business problems, not by co-operation, not by any scientific method which will bring about results beneficial to our people as a whole, but by resorting to the courts.

I know business has been sick, and business has been in a large measure to blame for its illness, but instead of sending for a doctor who could prescribe a remedy that would give practical and permanent relief the GOVERNMENT SENT FOR LAWYERS, AND YOU KNOW THE RESULT. It is estimated that 90 per cent of our manufacturers do not know their true costs.

I predict that within five years there will be very little money loaned by any banker in the United States to any merchant or manufacturer who does not present a statement showing detailed information not only regarding his true assets and liabilities, but also indicating that he is conducting his business in an efficient manner and that he absolutely knows his true costs.

It is my feeling that if the government should not encourage trade associations and the reconstruction and upbuilding of American business very little progress will be made in our country’s development. Men at the head of factories need the point of view of what might be called the statesmanship of business.


It is a well known fact that competition in foreign markets is national, and if we are to be effective competitors in foreign countries our business men must unite their forces and move forward as a unit.
