worth considerably more than anybody has offered you Well let us see A man buying farm land natural ly prefers to locate near a thriving uptodate town HP wants good home markets for his crops He wants good schools Let us say your land is three miles from town A farm that looks very much like yours is three miles from a town twice as big and twice as prosperous as this town If you were going to buy a farm fcr your own occupancywouldnt you pay a whole lot more for land near the town that is twice as large and twice as lively Of course you would It would be good business Now what makes a town big

the past ten years How much have your neighbors sent How much have all of you together put out of circulation here at home1- It is probably beyond calculation If all that money had been spent in I your own home town isnt it reason able to assume that the town would have grown more than it has grown Wouldnt this town be a bigger and better town- Wouldnt It have more stores to buy your produce Wouldnt it have more public improvements to make it more attractive to outsiders who might come here to live to go into business or buy your surplus land at a good figureTo trade at home means to help

need the cloak of charity ourselves Fill life with sunshine strew flowers where otheis throw throw stones Make life a bright spot in this world and where you see flowers cast smiles and whether it be morn dusk or night let the sun IIsidemeridianIt astonish many of us sometimes if we could know what our neighbors think of us merman has some kind of a standing in the community where he lives and he is sized up a great deal closer than he has any idea of You may set it down as a fact that there isnt a twelve year old boy in the neighborhood who hasnt his opinion off you and he wouldnt be slow about expressing it either if a stranger should ask him for it Every man is always making character whether be is doing anything else or net WHAT SHALL TEACH MT CHILD Teach him that it Iis better to die than to lie that Ills better to starve than to steal that it is better te be a scavenger or a woodchopper than an idler and a dead beat that it is just as criminal and reprehensible to waste Monday as I to desecrate Sunday that labor t iiis theprice of all hoooat possessions that no one k exempt from the ob I ligation to labor with head hands or heart t that an honest man Iis the noblest work of GodOt that knowledge is pewer that labor is worship and Idleness sin that it iis better to eat the crust of independent poverty than to luxuriate am the richest viands as a dependant Teach him these facts tilt they are woven into his being and regulate his life and we will insure his sue cess though the heavens fall A genuine mother could no more raise a bad boy into a bad man than a robin could raise a hawk When we say a genuine mother we mean something more than a mother who prays with her boy and sends him to Sunday school All these things are good and indispensable as far as they go but there iis a lot more to do to train a boy besides praying with him just as there are things necessary to the cultivation of a garden besides reading a manual To succeed with roses one must prune weed and hoe a great deal To make a boy Into a pure man a mother must do more than pray She must live with him in the sense of comrade and closest friend She must stand by him iin time of temptation as the pilot sticks the wheel when rapids are around t She must never desert him to go offI to superintend outside duties any more than the engineer deserts his post and goes Into the baggage ca- to r I read up engineering when hi train is pounding across the country at forty miles an hour TRUE LOVE of WOMAN No woman will love a man better for his being renowned orprominent Though he be the first among men she will be prouder not fonder as is often the case she will not even be proud But give her love ape precition kindness and there is sacrifice she will not make for his content and comfort The man w loves Her well Is her hero and king no less a king though his only kingdom Is his heart and home In nine cases out of ten it in a mani fault that he is unhappy with ti wife It is a very exceptional w man who will not b all she can to an attentive hustijindf and a very exceptional one whit will not be a- very disagreeable if she finds herself wilfully neglected t l I Italq lAI Doctors

women say nothing of the anti nary woman II Are women leec brave than men True the ordinary woman nay be afraid of II room but her reseed for true heroism and bravery will compare favorably with man She may set jump in front of a runaway team to stop it or rezone a friend from the fifth story of a burn lag bunding but we have women right in this community who have exhibited more true heroism than say man wearing the CarnegIe badge of honor for bravery Many a soldier who bravely stood at his post of duty for two or three years during our Civil War is cov ered with badges We would not take one from him he merits them but tawny an ordinary woman has stood at her post of duty for thirty years and even half a century Jfigbt iing with sickness poverty and du oooragment and true Spartan sour age kept the wolf horn the door and saved the lives of a large family of children- id The man who saves one life receives a prize for bravery bis picture appears In the metropolitan papers and he wears a medal which says to the world he was brave And he was But the woman who has saved the lives of many is given no badge and seldom ever a word of commendation The husband of the ordinary wo man has not the gift of making money He works bard but is a peer manager and the wolf never gets far from his door The good wile sour cooks and mends for the man who dots not even give her a kind word for pay One has most truthfully said that for each of her children she trod the Gythsemane of woman only to go thru that slavery of motherhood which the woman endures who is too poor to hire competent nurses For years and years she never knew wnat it was to have a single nights un broken sleep The mall hours of morning found her walking the floor with a sick babe or putting water to thirsty little lips There was no iteat for her day or night There was always a child in her arms or clinging to her skirts Oftener than not she was sick and nerve worn and- o weary almost to death but never j failed to rally to the call of moth er i las a good soldier always rallied to his battle cry Nobody called her brave and yet when one of the children came down with malignant diptheria she braved death one hundred times in bending over the little sufferer without one thought of danger and when the little one was laid away under the- o sod she who had loved most was togetherhoup life for the others These ordinary women may not receive a Carnegie badge for braves lIe spariscertainly reserve crosiersbeLet the Hickman Ice CoaTGo sell you some of their coal Youll use noother Telephone 48 The Kickers
