An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil—he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you—and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Extraordinary Strawberries. - Dr. Bayne of Salubria, Prince George's county, Maryland

Southern Cultivator (1843-1906); May 29, 1844; 2, 11; American Periodicals pg. 87

Extraordinary Strawberries. -  Dr. Bayne recently exhibited to the Horticultural Society of Washington city, two jars of strawberries, measuring five inches in circumference, and weighing each two hundred grains; thirty-two of them filling a quart; and for flavor and beauty far surpassing any fruit ever exhibited here. Dr. Bayne has lately given great attention to the cultivation of the straberry [sic], and deserves much credit for having brought this excellent fruit to its present state of perfection,

Dr. Bayne's home, gardens and nursery will soon lie under the parking lot of a high end discount shopping mall now under construction in Prince George's County
