traveler ever accomplished Such romances ahl no No not even the famous Quiliner Or Robinson CrusoeIIt has been in rivers and oceansI And even in the sky It formed part of that black cloud that echoed The thunders of July It has been carried by the Gulf stream From Cuban shores whirling To be turned to chrystal ice beside the Shares of old Spitzbergen It has traveled all the royal streets And seen the most of London And glistened in the musky Irish fog And on the grass in Ireland It has reflected many palm trees Of the Coral IslandsCHas caught the glorious sunrays that light The valley of Cumberland It has traveled over all New York Yes in all the alleys Has traveled down Atlantic slopes and up- Californias valleys It oft has hung in a misty veil Above the lofty tulip Anbyias bubbled forth in mossy fountains In every state of Europe At last it made one heavenly tripCI cannot tell its mission But now it has returned to this old earth Rich in heavens blessingsR VESTER The health of

Alaska and Philippines Monument to Paul Jones CONFUSES THE QUACK Once when Attorney General Knox was a young man he had a case to conduct against a quack doctor It was his purpose to prove the doctor quite Ignorant of medicine and the means he adopted to do this were ingenious and effective Getting the nnnonlhe stand habegan- You used sir on my client here when he called you In all the most ape proved and modern methods Certainly certainly the witness replied You made all needful amputations eNo less than nine sir ClDld you decapitate the man you performed the Caesarian section operation To be sure Now about the post mortem did you hold the usual post mortem Of course I did In fact I held two postmortems Mrtthe young attorney bad no difficulty In winning his Case against the quack POLITICAL STRAWS The man who itches for fame is usually kept scratching Many statesmen look upon a morn ing cocktail as constitutional amend meat A woman never knows what an un- prIncipled scoundrel she has married uutil her husband runs for officebMany a candidate thinks himself a only to discover after the election that his name is Mud Political parties have one thing in common they are all anxious to save the county from some other party A woman would never be successful running fur office She would have to stop too often to see if her hat was on straight TAKE 1YARN1NGI A man who answered advertisements in cheap story papers has had some interesting experiences says an exchange He learned that by sending 81 to a Yankee he could get a cure for druckeness Sure enough he did It was to take the pledge and keep It1t Later on he sent 60 cent stamps to find out how to raise turnips successfully He found out Just hold of the tops and pull It Be young he wished to marry and sent 34 lucent stamps to a Chicago firm for information as to how to make an Impression When the answer came it read Sit down upon a pan dough It was allttle rough but he was a patient man and thought he would yet succeed Next advertise ment he answered read How to double your money in six months He was told to convert his money bills fold them and be would see his money doubled Next he sent for twelve useful household articles andi he got a package of needles He was slow to learn so he sent 81 to find out SHow to get rich Work like the Devil and never spend a cent1I And that stopped him but his brother wrote to find out how to write a letter without pen or ink He was told toI use a lead pencil He paid 81 to learn to live without work and was told on a postal card to Fish for suckers as we do GET RICH QUICK On every side one is confronted by the getrichquick concerns There never was a time in the history of the country when so many schemes many of them altogether fraudulent were presented to the public In many instances the bait Is of the most tempting kind and It accomplishes- the purpose intended The country is full of suckers Somebody has said that one is born every minute They ready to put their money into any scheme that promises speedy and profitable returns The men behind the schemes get the money the invest gets the experience which is often accompanied by an Intense longing on his part to go out into the woodshed and administer to himself a vigorous kicking Plenty of ready cash is a good thing to have about the house and the old way of making money is a very slow way but after all it is probably the surest and best way People who are on thelookout for quickand big profits must necessarily take big chances When any scheme promises more than a legitimate return on the money invested it will probably be best in the end to steer clear of it Georgetown Times THE WORST KIND O POVERTY No other form of poverty can com pare with mental destitution Though- a man own neither houses nor lands nor money yet if he has a cultivated mind andla broad mental horizon if the door of hisintellecthas been open ed wide so that he drinks in beauty and intelligence wherever he goes and if he has developed his sympathies sothat he is in tough with life at all points he has found the secret of success and happiness On the other hand if a man merely accumulates millions of dollars though he own broad acres and ve in a palace if his mind has been starved if he is Intellectually poorhe will see nothing to admire in art nothing to soothe or elevate in music if he has been wholly absorbed in crowding and eJbowlng his way through the world to the total neglect of his higher nature in spite of his house and lands his palatial residence and allTila costly surroundings he is the most despicable andpitabfe kind of pauper Saving money apd starving the nniuais the bpbrcit business that shy f human being can possibly engage in Wear threadbare clothes if necessary sleep in a bare attic if you must sacrifice legitimate but necessary amusements do anything in reason rather than starve your mind Feed that at any cost short of injuring healthA who has learned the alpha II has the key to all r wer He can make royal investments for mental Investment Is the greatest one can make It is a form of wealth thbt will stand by one when panics or other misfortunes have swept away property when friends fall away when the whole world seems to have turned against you No matter what happens if you have a rich mind if your intellect Is a storehouse of precious knowledge you can never In reality be pourEa STATENEWS Perry Coyle of Madison county after an illness of five hours died from drinking hot drops and stomach bittersDr P Clayton a young physi

The bay of the hound awakens all the echoes of the early morn ing for these are the days when the heart of the fox hunter is glad There are probably no sportsmen who more thoroughly enjoy their favorite pursuit than the fox hunt er Of these there are two classes those of the South who ride to hounds and those of the North who secure their brushes by thor ough knowledge of the ways and tricks of Reynard and by a true eye and ready shotgun There is sometimes a noticeable tendency on the part of the former to con demn what they term the sneak methods of the latter Take not offense you who have stood on a familiar run in the early half light of a winter morning and listened to the full throated music of the hounds rolling across the valley straight forward where you are waiting only to swing suddenly and to clear soulstirring melody die away down the road where yes terday you kept as vain a watch Pity their ignorance for they know not what they decry There is room for both classes for often where one flourishes the other is impossibleDeep of course effectu ally put a stop to fox hunting but January usually brings many days when the scent lies strong and the hounds tug at the leash which holds them in check The young er dogs give tongue now aud again as a strong taint strikes their nos trils Excitedly they work it out now ovqrruning and now with in finite patience unraveling the ex tracies of the trail But watch the veteran of the pack WhoI shall say that animals have no reasoning power Wasting no time he casts a wide circle which gives him the scent so hof that inI a few minutes he has blaster Redj going In splendid volume in whichone can almost imagine there is the least bit of mockery bis voice rolls back down to the inexperienced youngsters strug gling with the cold scent below Instantly they give tongue in response and aro away in spirit There is no old fox hunter but can relate countless tales of the sagacity and wit of this renegade in eluding pursuers and it is this strategetic power this crafty in telligence which is one of the greatest charms of the chase Jan uary is a mouth when there is little else to take the lover of the gun afield but Reynard is always ready for a run with the dogs even in this month if there are ico and snow NOTICE Ihave a madstone Persons bitten by dogs or snakes call ou me Will guarantee the stone ICB
