superficially by our citizens seemed herculean and yetno conception of the labor and painstaking as are exercised by Mr Indker in the training of the young talent drawn around him can be realized by the most scrutinizing observer t Having three youngsters of his owns whose environment was stalTiers and notes as Interpre ted by heir talented father the idea of a Kid Band naturally suggest ed itself and gathering up other youth near the age of his own he began to harmonize the units into a perfect machine having for its end a first class band Hickman is just across the river from Missouri and Iis impregnated more or leas with the phlegmatic disposition attributed to the Missourians of having to be oiled hence little encouragement was shownthe kids and their leader until the latter forced reluctantt recognition Although writers to the Courier called attention to the rising young terpischorean body no provision was made for practicing quarters by public spirited citizens and the boys cheerfully gathered in basements and blacksmith shops to develop their talent on different instruments assigned to them But by patient and persistent effort Mr Hunziker soon developed the ma terial gathered together with a beautiful symposium of harmony and forced Hickmans population to stiffen up their spinal column and take notice As a result aside from gratuitous service on the part of the band paying engagements were secured and wherever the Kid Band were in evidence the plaudits of their auditors were showered upon them The admirers of the Kids since their development into a proficient titiuiicalbody have donated liberally to their support A larger hall has been rented and fittecTup wan 1 electric lights chairs and rustic seats which Mr Hun ziker calls the workshop This hall is flanked by a club room elegantly fitted up with mattings on the floor an upright piano and elegant table desk easychairs mirrors pictures etc This is also designed as a reception room for the friends and patrons of the band An inventory of uptodate silver horns uniprmsr furniture etc shows the neat sum or 2000 Much credit is due Mr Hunziker and his kids all of them for the a perseverance

I t Jamt irctr- f14 1- strifes KER MONUMENT She built it herself and she did not know that she had a monument She lived in it but she did not know that it existed Her monument was her home It grew so quietly as quietly as a Rower grow and no one knewshe did not know herself how much she had done to tend and water and train it- Her husband had absolute trust in her He tamed the moneyshe expended it And as she put as much thot in her expenditure as he put in his earning etch dollar was doubled in the expending She had inherited that mysterious faculty which we call taste and she culti vated it with fidelity Every home she visited she studied tho always unconsciously as tho it were museum or an art gallery and aI every visit she brot away some thot J which came out of her loving hung natfon fitted to its appropriate place in her own home She was too genial to be an imitatorfor imi tation is always of kin to falsehood and she abhorred falsehood She was patient with everything but a- lie So she never copied in her home or on her person that she had seen elsewhere yet everything she saw elsewhere entered into and helped to complete the perfect picture of life which she was always painting with deft fingers in everything from the honeysuckle which she trained over the door to the bureau in the guests room which her designing made a new mode of art for every new friend if it were only by a new nosegay and a change of vases Putting her own person ality into her home making every room and almost every article of furniture speak of her she had the gift to draw out from every guest his personality and make him at home and so make him his truest and best self Whither man or woman of the world oould long resist the subtle influences of that home i the warmth of its truth and love thawed out the frozen properties from impersonated etiquette and whatever circle of friends sat on the broad piazza in summer or open fire in winter knew for a time the rare joy of libertythe liberty of perfect truth and perfect love Her home was hospitable because her heart was large i and any one was her friend to whom she could minister But her heart was like the old Jewish templestrangers only came into the court of the gentiles friends into the inner court her husband and her children found a court yet nearer her heart of hearts i yet even they knew that there was a holy of holies which she kept for her Cod and they loved and revered her the more for it So strangely was commingled in her the exclusiveness of love its hospitality and its reserve Ah blessed homebuilder There is nothing so sacred on earth and no priest on earth so divine as the wife and mother who makes it A REFLECTION Yes when we consider that so vast a number of our young people especially the boys make such lamentable mistakes we are led to reflect The boys our boys how soon they become restive under the restraints of home and determine te become independent and go out to

the downward course the fearfulend and with no motive save for your good and no desire but for your future happiness Endeavor to make at least one little spot on earth more sweet and beautiful and peradventure you may leave a few flowers blooming in the desert when you are gone ONT WHINE Dont be whining about having a fair chance Throw a sensible man out of the window and hell fall on his feet and ask the nearest way to his work The more you have to begin with the less you will have in the end Money you earn yourself is much brighter than any you get out of dead mens bags A scant breakfast in the morning of life whets the appetite for a feast later in the day He who has tasted a sour apple will have the more relish for a sweet one Your present want will make future prosperity all the sweeter Eighteen pence has set up many a peddler in business and he has kept his carriage As for the place you are cast in dont find fault with that i you need not be a horse because you were born in a stableIf bull tossed a man of metal sky high he would drop down into a good place A hard working man with his wits about him will make money while others will do nothing but lose it As to the little troubles who expects to find cherries without stones or roses without thorns Who would win must learn to bear Idleness lies in a bed sick of the mulligrubs while industry finds health and wealth The dog in the kennel barks at fleas and the hunt Ing dog does not even know that they are there Laziness waits till the river is dry and never gets to market Try swims It and makes all the trades Cant do

rrtalnly all want a plensant home rtainly all want smiles instead of rowns Home should be just one me of sunshine But it can not be while some member of the family ircle is snapping and faultfinding and selfish Do people ever go more deliberately and insanely at work to make themselves miserable than they do when they deliberately loud the lights of the only place on earth where they have any

gtooery de partment as a result of the operation of our Pure Food Law hi force since Jan lit The goods this nrm sold were inferior goods and not allowed to be sold when the law requires articles to be pure Blended adulterated and inferior groceries can yet be sold hut they must so state on the package This is a great proof of the retailers contention that when they named a cheap price it was a cheap quality The fact that they have dosed their grocery business rather than call their waros by proper name ia a presumption that their other de partments do not carry bargains as they would have
