think some other girl doesThere are yery few people in this world smart enough to know how not to be too smart Whether an evening gown Is fashionable depends on how much neck and sleeves it hasnt got It Is queer that nobody ever learns to forgive the sins of others by com- mItting them himself All a man has to do to make a woman love him is to make her happier than any other man canITo Judge by a

and brown hair can be accounted for it Is the girlI with black hair and blonde eyes that puzzles one Its a good deal harder to break an old bachelor to the matrimonial harness but when he is broken be is the tamest of them alllThe only thing in the world morel horrible than an old fat woman jond ling a small sickly dog Is the same old a fat woman fondling a young husband When there Is no hesitation about calling what carriesaman his legs why should their be any in calling what carries a woman the same thlDgt No woman can ever be made toc understand why her husband snorts so savagely when she wakes him up two hours after midnight to ask him if be thinks itwlll do any harm to the baby to sleep so soundly A womanis Idea of being economical about clothes Is to buy a dress for 6100 and when she finds she doesnt like It sell it for 820 and buy another for 8150 To save your life you cant make her see that the second one counting what she got for the other one cost her any more than the

has 7again testified to the compelling po tency of public sentiment as conioll Ing the action of that American bodyRepublican sentiment in the Bouse was against this measure and if the leaders of that party had dared the bill would have deen defeated But so plainly in evidence was the trnth of disastrous popular resentment tn the event of such defeat that enougb Republicans joined the Democrats to carry the measure Seeing themselves beaten the bosses withdrew open op positionNeverlessthere Is still peril for the measure The crafty Republican leaders in the House are said to be con fident that the Senate will kill the bill without hesitation manifesting a dls regard for the will of the people which the House with a shorter tenure of office for its members is afraid to dis playThis truth of the situation shouldt pot be lost on the American publicI popular sentiment in favor of the actment of the omnibus statehood bill into law should be so distinctly voiced to force the Senate to a definiteC issue of obedience to the people It a matter of vital momentSt Louis Republic JIG SENSATION AT DANVILLE Danville Ky May8A sensational indictment was filed this afternoon against Mrs Mary

applying for a divorce One has lasted nil the joys of a long lite the other has drank the cup of bitter experience to the lowest dregs Seven tjfiveyears is a longtime inI which to build aircastles and live a practical every day life They have passed through the tempest together and they are sailing toward the sunset harbor in that quiet light that gives the day its glory Perhaps they have had many little ripples along the wayI but all the storms have been without and that has helped them enjoy Its comedy There are not many who are permitted to spend so much time together on this planet Only enough of that class to teach us to believe that the worlds best days have not all pass edand enough of the unsatisfied and the restless ones to show us the pureI and true and to help us to enjoy the noble and the good This young girl who seeks a divorce not have good reasons Many of them have and when the mistake is made the next best thing Is a separation But the light is never as bright as it mold have been under other circumstances This leads us to believe that too many people marryespecIal- ly in ptab Its true marriage is Gods first thought for man happiness But this does not mean every man nor ev cry woman There are some who are so wean tempered and cross that an gels could out please them There are women so hysterical and burr headed the society of a crosscut saw is peace and quiet in comparison These two classes were made to tread the wine press alone They would never get to heaven if they should marry and of stand a very pour chance single hand ed The divorce suits lead us all away from the temple that has love for Its corner stone but we come back again we ream the stories of the centenarians who hoes marked all the milestones the way with the signs of happiness and for whom the sweetest flowers have ever bloomed They are the nly ones who detect the beauty of every bloom In the fragrance of the century plant There is a pathetic melody in the story of the last leaf

agricultural au thorities in Florida declares that there are five millions of waste acres in that state earily capaple of profitably producing ten mill ion tons of sugar That would moan the production of all the su gar the American public demands and leave a tremendous surplus vfdr exportation and sale in foreign markets at prices that would take and hold those markets dOur annual consumption ofsu gar now is about 2400000 tons or loss than onequarter the amount the Florida lands are safe ly estimated as capable of produc ing annually For sugar wo are compelled to import we pay about 150000000 per year In addition wo pay an exorbitant tax to d the sugar trust for refining the raw sugars and distributing the product to the people of the nation All these enormous sums could be saved to the nation and largely to the individual families by the occupation and cultivation of the waiting sugar lands of Flor ida It seems rather strange that the enterprising officials and citizens of Florida do not at cnce take up this matter in a practical way and eooxpJoit these lands and opportunities y as to attract to them settlers and capital that will realize- t ir possibilities If they could only organize and carry out a successful boom in sugar raising they might easily and within a few years build up an industry that would of itself be almost a state jmouopoly und create a trade of in creasing millions auiiuully the profits reapedrand epent by Florida people Now is the day of salvation for the South Eager eyes und presci ent capital are turning to her rich and undeveloped resources

asks him for a 35 bill he is a fraud of the first water even though he prays night and morning until he shakes the tern al bills But If his children run to the front gate to meet him and loves own sunshine illumines the face of his wife when she hears bis footsteps you can take it for granted he is pure gold his home is a heaven and a humbug never gets near the throne of God He may be a rank atheist and a red flag anarchist a Mormon and mug wump he may buy votes bet on elections he may deal from the bottom and drink beer until he cant tell a silver dollar from a circular saw and still be
