The fleet is sailing homo again; It's

The fleet is homeward bound again;

The ships. -have circled round the.
earth; they're on the homeward
From Occident to Orient, wherever
shins may ride.
They've borne aloft Old Glory's folds,
they've been our boast and pride.
Brave Lawrence looks down from
aloft and watches ev'ry day;
And Foote, and Jones, and Farragut
they guard the homeward way.
The old sea heroes watch the course
across the raging main
So three times three! And then
once more the fleet is homo

cents on radishes, 58 cents on

And they will bo fresh from his

And a few heads of cabbage.
Fresh, crisp cabbage right from
his own garden.
All this is figured out to a gnat's
eyebrow at this time of the year.
A little later tho city man will
figure it all out, something like this:
There's $2.50 for a garden fork
and a hoe. And 75 cents for a rake.
And $1.80 for seeds and plants. And
there was a four-dollar pair of shoes
ruined by mud and dust. And also
a $7 pair of trousers. It also cost
75 cents for court plaster and cream
lotions for blistered hands and a

Could never tell a lie;
In which, respect George Washington
Was unlike you and I,
But If 'tis true he couldn't lie
And lots of folks- have said it
Why should he for his truthful ways
Be given so much credit?
Now, here are we, and unlike George
We can tell awful whoppers;
We can spin fairy tales galore
Unto our moms and poppers.
But we do not and so wo claim
George simply isn't in it.
With modern boys and modern girls,
Not for a single minute.
He couldn't tell a single lie -r
With accent on the "couldn't."
Now wo could always tell a lie,
But, then, we simply wouldn't.
Now, honest Injun, don't you think
Our praise you should be singing
Instead of always boosting George
And that old chestnut ringing?

$600 From One
Acre of Cucumbers
W. Q. Hooks, near Run, Texas, in tho
Gulf Coast Country, gathered 400
crates of cucumbers from a single
acre, for which ho received $000. It
cost him only $4.75 to plant, water and
grow the crop, and 5 cents a bushel
to gather and haul It to tho railroad
Over $500 clear profit for a little light
work that many a city man would bo
glad to do just for exercise. ' -.
If this can be done on one acre, think
of the possibilities from 5 or 10 acres.
Have you such possibilities in your
nrottont work? Why shouldn't you cm-
brace the chance to gain fortune, free
dom and health? Raising fruits and
vegetables in the Gulf Coast Cquntry io
not difficult any one can do it. You
can buy. a few acres on easy terms and
the llrst crop, if properly cared for,
should more than pay for the land.
Life in the Gulf Coast Country Is pleas
ant the winters aro mild the sum
mers are pleasantly cooled by guix
breezes. Investigate this proposition
while tho land is within your reach-r-next
year It will cost more.
Let me send you some further informa
tion about the big profits growers aro
making in the Gulf Cbast Country. Wo
