Alas, have I failed before my children, that each one of them declared only yesterday they were going to remain single the rest of their days? - We have toiled long and hard these past few hot days to gather, prepare and shell beans and peas for the home freezer. Dale and I are up and at the chores before the sun dares to peep its shining face over the pine forest above the house. . . leaving the very early morning hours for the garden work. . . . when you get wet with dew in place of sweat. The children have been wonderful to help, and in my zeal and eagerness to let nothing go to waste we have gone at a fast pace,' from field to garden, to the shady spot under the chinaberry tree, hence to the kitchen and thence to the freezer. Meals have been filling ones of vegetables and bread ,vith desserts from the freezer, nameily ice cream and cookies. The .house has only gotten a lick and promise and the children resent the house not being at its usual best. We had a bushel of butterbeans . . .tiny little fellows very hard to shell, but so wondirful when frozen for winter meals. Green peas that almost tore nail from thumb. . . a whole cotton basket of them, and close by ears and ears of corn for shucking, silking and blanching. Greri apples waited to be peeled for sauce making and the tomatoes were ruby red and ribe. Okra filled a big box, ready for making into soup mix, and somebody had to peel the onions for pickles. We were tallang and having I thought a good time when Tim said, "X am never going to get married. . . all it leads to is shelling peas until your thumb throbs so you cant sleep at night." Joe who is beginning to return smiles with little girls said. "If I am ever crazy enough to smile at another girl, I hope somebody hits me but hard. .T." married and all a woman thinks about is getting a freezer and keeping it chug full of stuff. . . beans, peas and corn."

Broadway i John the shy one remarked, "If I do get married we are going to live on top of a tall building and I am never going to let my wife know what a garden is." Mike thf rprihparl om nr 5Vi his, "The first year I get married II I am going to have a ten acre garden, buy me a cold storage plant and fill it full, then my wife bet ter not mention shelling a bean or pea for ten years." Rose, Jr. from her seat, in the mulberry tree close by," where -she perches on a limb and shells various things, dropping the hulls down in a cotton basket said, "All I want to have is fifty ; acres of watermelons, no freezer and no husband." ' . I listened with a growing sens(J or dismay and tried to remember when mama was snowed under with fruits, of field and orchard along with garden sass by the tubs: . . . how I hated to sit and shell.'-. . flies would, crawl on my bare feet, splashed with watermelon juice, the grown ups would talk of things I wasn't supposed to hear, and mama would spell out words, and often say with a nod in my direc iion. . . "Kememoer little pitchers have big ears." Still I remembered the joy of mama putting newspapers over ; everything and taking all the chil- Idren both white and colored, to the swim hole for an hour. No mat ter that we were as hot and tired as could be, the thought of splash ing around in the mill tail for a few minutes was enough to put zip in our legs. We put papers over everything, went for a swim, and I hope the children . wonH keep to their promises of never getting married. For frankly, I think I have some good future husbands and one wife in my family. . . at least they will know how to shell peas and beans. I am delighted that so many of you enjoyed the true stories of the salesmen who have come calling at mama's house and later at my own home. It might interest you to know Mr. T-Bo Bellue came calling on me last week with his black sample case ,and a much improved pie filling. He presented me with a bottle of Apple Blossom toilet water, from his vast array of toilet articles. I have another story of the vacuum cleaner man who came calling and stepped into trouble the minute he walked up on my just painted front porch. this will come later. Many wonderful people have been visitors in our home for a few minutes at a time the, past., few. weeks. . -. vacations are in full swing and as cars pass, almost all of my readers take a minute to say hello. The Royal Crown Cola " people were kind enough to put up a big sign close to my house" with a hand pointing to my home. Some have tried to call me before coming and couldn't get me on the I phone. . . I am at home most of the jtime, and when working in the garden or tending to the chickens I can't hear the phone. . . if I don't answer drive out anyway. . . I'll leave a note on the front . porch, where I am and you can look me up and help dress chickens, pick peas or. shuck corn. Mr. and Mf5. J. R.

"The man sought medical aid because he had popped eyes and ringing in his ears. The doctor immediateily took out his tonsils. No improvement. A second doctor suggested he have his teeth removed. He did still no improvement. A third doctor told him bluntly that he had only six months to live. The doomed man shrugged his shoulders and decided , to make the best of his remaining days. He bought a flashy car, hired a chauffeur, had the best tailor in town to make him 330 suits, and decided to have his shirts handmade. - ' I "O. K.," said the shirtmaker.

The boys hunted up and down , the hog branch banks; no Amanda. Three days ago, with loud quacks and many cries of "look what a smart duck I am," Amanda brought up five little babies. . . wide and yellow of feet, big of bill and soft and cuddly white. Rose, Jr. was enchanted and wanted to put a baby in her bonnet and take it around and hunt bugs and fat worms for it The mother was frantic and took a piece out of my daughter's leg.

S. newspaper editorials condemning Brazil naturally are read in Brazil. Speeches by congressmen criticizing Brazil have been published widely there. And they all add up to just one thing resentment against the United States by a country which has been our" best friend. J , Today there's a development I which may make things worse. Some U. S. coffee importers are i t .-1 : ft UU lUlllUg XJl rtZ.llldll uuxj.ee xux African coffee. Brazilian sales have dropped alarmingly. This will mean only one thing: depression. And depression is the surest breeder of Communism. If the latter ever gets started in the biggest country of Latin America; the U. S. A. will really be out of luck. Here is some breakfast coffee information you may not know about: For about 75 years a hot trade war has raged between Solo-nial Asia-Africa and Latin America. . . This dates back to 1876 when an Englishman smuggled the steds of 17 rubber trees out of. rubber empire of the Malays and , Indonesia. . . Somewhat the same ! thing , happened with quinine, chocolate, coffee, tobacco. All were developed in' Latin America, except tobacco; but, taking advan- tage of slave labor in Asia-Africa, not nign, were mucn mgiier mtui the African-coolie slave labor of the European colonies. So Africa and Asia flourished in the race to ' grow tropical products except for ! coffee. In Latin America, and, es- I pecially ; Brazil, coffee remained Iking. . . .
