PEARLS FIND READY MARKET
Those From the Mississippi Only
Slightly Second In Demand to
D*ep Water Products.
Arkansas Is the greatest pearl pro-
ducing state In the Union, and hun-
dreds of men engage In the peart
hunt. It is said that tho fresh water
pearl of Arkansas of the highest rlnas
cannot be distinguished from tiie fin-
est deep sea jewel. Throughout 'he
south generally thousands of people-
follow the pearl fishing indiisti..' and
make a comfortable living at It. Up
to a few years ago the jewel wer.lth
contained in the river beds of the
Mississippi valley was completely hid-
den. It was not supposed that the
fresh water mussel was a pearl bear-
er, or that it had any value except for
fish bait. I
The fresh water mussel is sought
now not only for the precious stoue It
may have hidden in its shell, but for
the shell itself, which is manufac-
tured into stick pins, cuff links, and,
buttons of every description. Thej
shell fisheries have for years extend-
ed far up the Mississippi river. A re-
cent writer on the subject puts fresh

Bagdad and Queen of Sheba.
The liagdad of the "Arabian Nights"
etill exists, but in a greatly diminished
form. In fact the grand old palaces
and mosques of its prime are nearly
all in mins, and only a small popula-
tion lives where once was a city of
2,000,000 people. A new city la
gradually coming into existence on
the opposite (east) bank of the Tigris,
the site being valuable from a com-
mercial point of view. The inhabitants
cumber about 200,000, and are mainly
Bedouins. The famous palace of Har-
oun-al-Raschild has disappeared, and
the foreign consulates occupy its site.
It ia only a tradition which asserts
that the queen of Sheba, who once
visited King Solomon, lies buried un-
der an eight-sided brick tower bear-
ing her name in old Hagdad. The citi-
zens have ceased to venerate it, we
are told, and the tower is approaching
a state of ruin.

Vital parts may rust and weaken. Onk weak part may
cause the whole machihe to go to pieces.
IT WILL PAY YOU WELL
to build a cheap implement shed out in your fields to protect your
reapers, mowers, harrows, seeders, tractors, scythes, etc.,
every night and rainy day.
A dollar saved is a dollar earned." Such a shed will save
you hundreds of dollars. It will avoid annoyance, loss of time
and repair expense and add years to the life of your machines.
The shed is quite likely to earn its cost the first year.
We have a large stock of good roofing and "common'.' lumber
