has existed always and that this visit of the fleet has merely afforded the Japanese an op portunity Sfor the expression of that feeling There can be no doubt that the simultaneous visits of the American exposition commissioners the Pacific coast business men and the Atlantic fleet are a part of an organized plan of the Japanese to finally wipe out all misunderstanding between Janan and

to determine the rela- Itive value of sptmg andvfall plowing ye the practice on many of our western ranches is to get as much as pos slli 7ot theTand olieseeded in1ffieT spring plowed during the fall This foresight is ca despec1nllY sentjal la breaking new ground Of cotirse in region of the country It is difflcu ti to lP1PJYn thefallj and some farmers tv PJkunt11 sprlnjftyrV order tbaithe land nply be Plowed much more easily mffer the snows and spring rains One advantage in fall plowing is that It opens up the soli and admits the moisture from the fall and spring rains and winter snows more easlly In some cases however quite as good results are gained from leaving the stubble on the ground throughout the winter A long stubble tends to prevent the snow from blowing and accumulates considerable moisture in the soil Our spud and beet fields are dug up BO much that they dornot need autumn plowing and such fields are always ln the best filth in the spring One distinct advantage in fall plowing Is that it facilitates work in the spring and tends to better preparation of the seed bed at that time If large areas must be plowed in the spring the work Is crowded and not enough attention Is given by way of preparing the seed bed Our springs vary and frequently it is quite late before farming operations can begin It is therefore a decided advantage to have the ground plowed in the fall in rapidlyharrows Another a vantage for full pfowlng Is that It affqrojs a good means of disposing of the manure As soon as the grain is cut and when it is standing in shock manure may be dis tributed over the fieldand as soon as the thrashing is done can be plowed underThe precipitation of the succeeding months beats down the soil and so tends to bring about decomposition In the manure If the manure Is left and plowed under In the spring It fre- quentlY lies In strawy bunches and In terferes with the rise of moisture later The observations In many see tions indicate that the very best way to dispose of manure is to get It on the ground and plow It down in the fall Our modern traction plows and the introduction of the disk plow have done much to simplify fall and winter plowing in this country It frequently occurs that we have a good rain or a snowstorm after which the plowing can be done quite readily The Waugh Plum For many years the curcullo and va rious other

man is so great that his life has nothing in common with mine so far removed from men that he yjudy not be an inspiration an ev ample in that thing wherein lie has excelled He may learn holy aspirations from David purity of life from Joserh ho v to pray from Elij ah how to work from Paul how to love from John how to live from Jesus of Nazareth No man was ever born who had not as his birthright place and opportunity That com- parativ ly few fid their place does not alter the fart Sin isiniquity inequity and it is because sin is in the world that man fails in right ad justment to his heritage All Men to be Saved God would have all men to be saved saved to all eternity but saved in time as well saved from failure to the making ofa true life here to the fulfillment of all that was intend ed when liie was given him and to the storing of measureless eternal- treasures The truest study of mankind is Ian and where so time as in the only iiiorrant unsurpassed umprej udiced biographies that have ever bren written the men and women of the Book From LifeNof Moses To gather what thereis for us of illustration etc ample incentive in 55the life of Moses would require more than one or two 01 ten sermons so I ibring you but the one thought today Here is a man with a mission com missioned as hejvas to the greatest t Jiuman task that the world has ever known he yet as a fellowman has in this commission a lesson for me and through him God may speak Know ye with absolute certainty that if we listen we too inayliear the voice of God Come iow and I will send thee Heart Stirring Mission Note that it was a heartstirring mission Though 40 years have passed they were not years that ob literated the pasv Moses saiI the affliction of the children of Israel he heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters he knew their sorrows Doubtless bis life was filled with in tense interest and longing and pray er There was a kinship that could not be fonrotten So you and I may not be used of God- until our hearts are stirred within us at every knowledge ofa worlds affliction a worlds cry a worlds sorrow and we ee in every man un der the curse and blight of sin one of the family a lost child of our heavenly Father and the Fathers great compassion stirs in us- A Different Mission It was a difficult mission Need we stop to bring to attention the absolute impcssibiUty of the undertak ing Pharaoh and Egypt The proudest monarchy and greatest na I tion in the then world thoroughly equipped in riches organization and services Israel a horde of islayes in centuries of bondage spirit ambi tin and hope almost destroyed Moses a wandering shepherd of the hills of Midian So is our mission a different one Evil is entrenched its forces are allied the devil is re sourceful the man we would rescue is indifferent or helpless or even hostile No one knows this so well as G idand therefore He picks His men 1He can use aanything he can make Ibackboneless Jacob His instrument to thrash the mountains but He is Vever looking for emergency men fit men picked men men men with nat- uralf endowment with educational equipment above all with spiritual poWer those who Take time to be iiplyBut give Him all yourself heart Iinind soul might and nothing shall Ibe impossible to you A Glorious Mission It is a great and glorious mission- The task committed to Moses was manifestly great and glorious but t could he have liad any dream as to- fwhat greatness and glory it involved in all future time That this nation l would give the 111 lure its religion its greatest heart spngs its basis for till law and national development its Messiah its Kinr v No more can you or I have slight t est conception of what may be in ivolyed what mry result when we thy be eet the deliverer of

Given Mission It is a God given mission There fore it canot fail There may be a humility a self depreciation that is as sinful as pride and overconfidence and as surely robs life of attainment and reward When God calls it should be logical natural ready that we should say Ill go where ou want me to go dear Lord Oer mountain or vale or sea Pit say what you want me to say dear Lord Ill be what you want me to be To Much f a Teat Blough and Neighbors were chatting on the porch Mrs Blough was in the parlor near the window Blough knew she was listening and wanted to tease her Had a little experience today he said to Neighbors confidentially Prettiest little girl you ever saw She was sauntering along the street some feet behind Vslrrblltug couple I was walking faster and as I caught up with her I couldnt help looking at her she was so pretty She caught my look and smiled I had no intention of fluting ot course but that smile was irresistible Then our hands I touched accidentally and we let them linger a minute She began walking faster to keep up with me and we passed the couple ahead together When we got some distance ahead of them I mustered up nerve enough to speak Good evening I said and she replied the same very roguishly There was a swish of skirts in the parlor and Blough turned in time to see his wife vanishing toward the hail- Thunder he exclaimed Of course the little girl was only aOut six years old but my wife didnt wait to hear that Shes gone upstairs to cry now and even if she accepts my explana- tIon it means flowers and a party dress What fools we husbands

progress were first the GreekPer sian war of 490 B C in which the oriental wave was prevented from deluging Europe second the struggle between the Franks and Moors which ended at the battle of Tours with the defeat of the Moors thus say ing Europe from Mohammedanism and Its stagnation third the Napoleonic wars which shook up Europe destroying the remnants of feudalism and paving the way for modern democracy and the American war of 186165 which preserved the integrity of the great republic and so made it possi ble for the United States to work out its splendid destiny among the nations of

Flowers Kept Indoors There are three ways to water plants two wrong ways and one right one Many people adhere to the plan of frequent application of small amounts of water Thus the soil about the top of the pot is constantly moist but the lower twothirds of the soil Is entirely dry By this method the upper roots are nourished while the lower roots which demand water soon die and the plant is continually in an un healthy condition Directly opposite to this Is the plan of qverwatering which many persons thoughtlessly follow They water their plants thoroughly today Tomorrow they apply the same amount and so they go from one day to anoth ereThe result is that the soil is kept saturated with moisture It Is in the condition of mud all the time a con ditlon that suits only aquatic plants and one in which the ordinary plant will soon become diseased The stagnant water will sour the todecay13ythe above mentioned methods are equally destructive to healthy plants There Is only one right way When you water a plant do it thoroughly in fact be sure every particle of soil is wet Then do not apply any more reallydrylooks damp you may rest assured that the restot 1tconfafng- hire fla tJIio1s Enough should be given as stated above to completely saturate all the soil in the pot If proper drain age is given all surplus waterthat is all water that the soil cannot take up and holdwill run off at the bottom of the pot through the hole provided for this purpose By proper drainage we mean that something must be placed in each pot to keep the soil from washing down and stopping up the hole There should be at least one Inch of drainage placed In all four or five inch pots and from one to three inches used in larger pots The best material to use for drainage is old bits of broken flower pots or broken bricks Use small pieces not much larger than a marble Many people re careless about this drainage or Ignorant as to its value but no one can grow plants successfully without it Some reader may ask How can I tell when I have given enough water to permeate all portions of the soil Well in answer let me say there is only one sure way and that Is to notice the drainage hole in the bottom of the pot When we see the water trickling through that we know it is time to stop I Some plants have roots that enable waItelrapidly than others Some rooms are kept so warm that evaporation takes place rapidly When alj these things are considered it will be seen that there can be no regular time for wa tering Watermust be given when the appearance of the soilshows need of it not until then Uso ordinary hydrant water Us it just the temperature you draw it from the hydrant Neither chill it nor heat it By following the above dIrec- tions you should be very successful with the average plant I FOR THE TEA TABLE Dainty Sweet Sandwiches Latest Fad of Up to Date Hostesses An ideal spot for the tea table when one expects three or four friends Is the drawing room The dining room is reserved for large afternoon teas or when ten or more guests are expected All the paraphernalia for boiling tlje water and making the tea should be on the table so that the brew may be perfectly fresh and with water of the necessary temperature It is always a charming scene even to other women to watch a dainty hostess prepare tea from the lighting ol the alcohol lamp to the final bit of lemon or pouring of cream To a man it suggests the delightful side of domesticity and a clever girl wishing to marry should never lose a chance to let a desirable party behold her making teaprovided she does it gracefully Sandwiches of all sorts are the best possible accompaniment to tea Crispy toast and little cakes come secondToast is often the most agreeable to the taste but it is so seldom truly hot and is so greasy with butter that it is by po means an ideal thing to handle while making a call f Sweet sandwiches are new and may Ee rriade from thin slices of stale or rather tough cake having a layer pf ground or pounded nuts or nuts pounded fine in a mortar and held to the cake by the thinnest possible layer of Jam marmalade or jelly A bit of pres rved ginger placed at intervals on the slices before they are laid together is delicious Maraschino cherries cut in quarters may also be used Alcohol a Remedy For Hay Fever If a girl has a hay cold or hay fever her cheeks

understand says the Chicago News Citing the well known fact that the nearer we get toa fire the more we feel its heat they ask why It is that we find the air so much colder on the top of a high mountain than on the plain below On the plain the suns rays pour down with an intensity that causes actual suffering while on the mountain three miles nearer the source of heat there Is perpetual snow perfeeuygiven even casual study to atmospheric phenomena for It Is in the maybetle of their heat to the air It is the surface of the earth that they warm and their radiation from the surface warms the superincumbent n1rIt is a law of nature that all hot bodies throw off their heat into space The- e1lt4 throws off at night part of the heat that It receives from the sun during the day It would throw it off with almost equal facility during the pay ifit were not for the atmospheric coat thaMrQunds It That atmos pheric coatinay be compared to the glass top of a hothouseit permits tho suns neat to enter readily but prevents it from escaping preciselythemay be so great as to parch the vege topthoreyear around The air is so dense on the lower levels that free radiation of heat from the earths surface Is impossible Therefore the lower levels are warm But on the mountain top the air isnot nearly so dense and heat Is thrown off Into space almost as fast as it is received GOOD PARLOR TRICK The Demon Lump of Sugar Will Amuso the Audience An audience rather enjoys a laugh against itself sometimes so try the conjuring trick with the demon lump Of sugdr and give it them Borrow two hats and place them crowns downward on the table Take care to elaborately call attention to the fact that there Is nothing under either themNext a lump of sugarbe In sistent that it may be one of a peculiar shape easily recognized again by your audience When you have received It hold it fup well to public inspection and explain that after having swallowed It before their eyes you will after a very short interval bring it under either of thetwo hats whichever your audience may cHoose The company all agog with your lasti tflckV wiiS expect some clever sleightofhand and will watch you closely tp see that there is no hum bugging and that you really eat and swallow the lump of sugar Eat it openly before them allcrunch- It unmistakably so that they may hear you do itand then ask with a great show of confidence under which hat you shall bring the lump The choice having been made place the chosen hat with great solemnity on your head and thus fulfill your under taking Your little piece of fooling will raise a hearty laugh in the audience at their own expense and establish a fueling of gQ9d fellowship that will make your other tricks go off smoothly and well 55iHomemade Ring Game With very little trouble you may construct this game from strong card board Upon the top of the four cardboard posts should bo fastened hooks BEADY TO PLAY each being of such a height that when the ring is permitted to swing forward upon the length of its cord it may be possible to encircle the hook with the ring The players swing the ring in turn The object of the game is to encircle the four posts which by the way should be numbered 1 2 3 4 First No 1 post must be encircled then NPS 2 3 and 4 in order The player gains another turn every time he swings the ring over a post but if by chance the ring should encircle the wrong post he must begin over again with No 1 post He who firstPlaces the ring over the four posts in proper order wins the game Philadelphia North American Harrys Arithmetic

BASKET Directions as to the Various Details of the Undertaking An extremely decorative yet Inex pensive scrapybasket may be made from stiff cardboard and small odds and ends of wall paper The cardboard should be rather heavy weight and should be cut in five pIecesfour sides and a bottom The basket should measure about fourteen inches from the base to the highest point about ten inches across the greatest width and seven inches at the base It will be found advan tageous to paste the paper on the card board before cutting the shape then use a pair of very sharp scissors to preserve a neat clean edge A good smooth paste not mucilage should be used to prevent blisters and an uneven surface The inside of the basket should be lined with BKCEPTACIiK FOB WASTE PAPERIplain color to match

Make a Circular Skirt Hang Well If you make your own clothes dont you have trouble in getting circular skirts to hang well Most people do and the secret of a well hung skirt is something the professional dressmaker does not often see fit to impart to the novice inthe art But herO it is nevertheless If you will always remember to sag or have sagged your circular skirts before the lower edge Is finished your troubles will be over and the skirt will be an even length all round To do this work of sagging first finish your skirt and sew it on to the belt of course leaving it unhemmed at the bottom Now put it over a skirt hang er and hang in some place out of the way Now you must weigh both sides of the skirt or in other words you want to stretch the fullness out of the circular part Let these weights stay fastened to the skirt for twentyfour hours or longer if you have the time to spare When the weights are removed cut the skirt the desired length and finish the bottom What does one use for weights The ingenious woman has no certain things She utilizes what la handiest Small iron rods are the best things to use but a row of heavy glass bottles also produces the result wanted So use what is nearest your hand but be sure to have weights sufficient for the thickness of your material and give it time to sag A skirt thus treated will rarely if ever cause the wearer any further trouble Their Business In Life Doesa young wife know her power Does V young husband remember that he represents everything to her and that her eyes ever turn toward him And do both realize that in

during this r Indian siurmer weather large num btsof men and boys are in all cor ners of the county slaughtering gamerWe will lose our birds and rabbits soon enough without any violation of the law Nearly every State in the Union has more stringent laws than Kentucky but the officials should see that the laws we have are enforced Every citizen should also feel it incumbent on him to report any violations to the proper officials DANGER OF FIRE The leaves are falling all over the J streets and yards of Winchester and in many places the passerby sees large piles of dried leaves and other refuse being burned In a conversation last evening Mr A R Baldwin Chief of the Fire De partment suggested that this prac tice was a very dangerous one that the long dry spell has left every thing in a highly inflammable con dition and that the least careless ness might start aconflagration that would cost the city dearly We believe the warning should he heeded by all The leaves and other refuse can be gathered up in piles in the back yard or in some corner of the premises and left until the first rains and then can be safe ly disposed of It is foolish to take chances The least carelessness r v might cost any of us much While r by having patience for a short time the rains will surely come and prac tically all danger will be past The beautification of the city is to be encouraged In fact from time to time in these columns we propose to do all in our power to support and encourage the Civic league or any bo dy of citizens who are moving in the direction of the f City Beautiful But on

merchants to petition the Board of Education of the Kentucky Wesleyan College to rescind the action re- cently1 taken by the members for bidding the football team playing 1away from home this season We believe such a petition should be prepared and resented There is little question but that a good athletic record helps any College small or great to attract students Sport within right limits should be heartily encouraged It is nott only good for the boys participat ing but it is an advertisement for the College The great Colleges of the East attract hundreds of students each tiAyear because of their athletic I Lrecords A winning track team a championshiptior casts a reflected clamor on all the students of- theparticular College 55lqe fare not advocating athletics jit the expense of studies But aa rigid rule can always be enforced i forbidding any student participat ing in College athletics unless he iotadiesit is good for any student to be a member of a Clolese team Unless Kentucky Wesleyan should be allowed to play away horn home the football team will have to drop out of the Association and sport for the fall will be dead This probably will mean some fewer students next yearThe business community here is interested if only from a selfish motive in the growth of the Col lege The more students the more money is brought here and spent in Winchester We feel certain that jf a proper petition is circulat ed and extensively signed it will have its influence with the Board of Education who are above all things interested in the upbuilding of the College and will cause them to seriously reconsider the action already taken If they do so we are satisfied that they will allow the games CHRISTIAN SCIENCE LECTURE NEXT SUNDAY Hon William G Ewing Will Talk at the

overwhelmed and would present at the festivities and Drina tobrought be a large table set for four with particu Jar pomp and circumstance Mr Archibald Lansing arrived very promptly a short stocky young man of clean and powerful build with dark keen eyes always alert and humorous lips ever on the edge of laughter un der his dark mustache His manner with Drina was delightful a mixture of seJrepressed Idolatry and busily naive belief in thorough understanding between them to exclude Selwyn from their com panyThis Selwyn fellow here he ex claimed I warned him over the phone wed not tolerate him Drina I explained to him very carefully that you and 1 were dining together in strictest privacy He begged so hard said Eileen Will somebody place an extra pillow for Drina They seized

angry with my somethingthflt mend silent Was that J- tIodontknow what you heard Dont you understand me Not exactly Well thenshe crimsoned has againbe say he demandedI heard something about dissipation He was very angry with Gerald It Is not the best way I think to become angry with either of us either me or Geraldbecause then we are usually Inclined todo it again whatever it Is They laughed a little Her fingers which had tightened on his arm relaxed her hand fell away and she fashiodn t awith the pillows had disarranged so that it threatened to come tumbling over eyes and cheeks Oh hair hair she murmured youre Ninas despair and my endless punishment Id twist and pin you tight If I dared Some day I will too What are you looking at so curiously Captain Selwynmy mop Its about the most stunningly beautiful thing I ever saw he said still curious It was a new note in their cordial Intimacy this nascent intrusion of the personal To herit merely meant his very charming recognition of her ma becominge a at and remembered as an individual and no longer classed vaguely as one emergedd nil resembled one another For some time now she had cherish tinye grudge in her heart that anyPexcept condcontrasst e had awakened to the admiration of wassonly half convinced happiness min gled with shy surprise that the wise world should really deem her so lovely teA red headed girl she said teas- Ingly I thought you had better taste than than Than to think you a raYing beauty Oh she said you dont think that As a matter of fact he himself had become aware of it so suddenly that he had no time to think very much about it It was rather strange too that he had not always been aware of it or was it partly the mellow light from the lamp tinting her till she glowed and shimmered like a young sorceress sitting so straight there in her turquoise silk and misty laceWhen Drina had gone to bed Boots also took his leave and Selwyn rose too a troubled careworn expression replacing the careless gayety which MissIgoingIIagainI up at disappointmentnot know Was it because In his completely altered face she realized the Instant and easy detachment from herself and what concerned her Was it because other people like Mr Lansing other interests like those which so preoccupationhadtimaciwhl hhad seemed to grow new er and more delightful with every meeting founhd i nWasr wise enough or perlencedenough t exact without exactinghis paramount consideration and interest Was there no common level of mental equality where they could meetwhere termination of Interviews might be mu tual might be fairer to her detachedfromweek other interests of which she knew nothing absorbed in them to her ut withh ing to do because her eyes were not yet strong enough to use for reading Lansing was saying Ill drive as far as the club with you and then you can drop me and come back later Right my son IllOnislia letter and then come back I Cant you write it at the ehnh2 5 fr y r ti c I r Not that letter he replied in a low amlledJllshand But she lay back looking straight up at him Are you going Yes I have several Stay with me she said in a low voice For a moment the words meant noth himsIs there something you wished to tell me 1 he asked Nno His perplexity and surprise grew Walt a second Boots he said And Mr Lansing being a fairly Intelligent young man went out and down the stairway Now he said too too sooth- Ingly what is it EileentNothing I thought but I dont care Please go Captain Selwyn No I shall not until you tell me what troubles you I cantsTry Eileen Why It is nothing truly It Is noth gsquarter past 8 He stood there looking down at her striving to understand That Is all she said flushing a tittleItl cant read and I cant sew and theres nobody here I dont mean tobotheryou ChiJdu he exclaimed do you want me to stay youIk landing outside and looked down Boots he called In Ii low voice Im not going home yet Dont wait forme at the Lenox All right returned Mr Lansing cheerfully A moment later the front door closed below Then Selwyn came back into the library For an hour he sat there telling her the gayest stories and talking the most delightful nonsense alternating with interesting incisions into serious subjects which it enchanted her to dissect under his confident guidance Alert intelligent all aqulver between laughter and absorption she had sat up among her silken pillows resting her weight on one rounded arm her splendid young eyes fixed on him to detect and follow and interpret every change in his expression personal to the subject and to her share in itHis old self again What could be more welcome Not one shadow in his pleasant eyes not a trace of pallor of care of that gray aloofness How jolly how young he was after all They discussed or laughed at or mentioned and dismissed with a gesture a thousand matters of common interest in that swift hour Incredibly swift unless the hall clocks deadened chimes were mocking time itself with mischievous effrontery She heard them the enchantment still In her eyes He nodded listening meeting her gaze with his smile undisturbed When the last chime had wounded she lay back among her cush Ions Thank you for staying she said quite happily Do you think me Interesting to real men like you and Boots she asked Yes he said deliberately uI do I dont know how interesting because 1 never quite realized howhow you had matured That was my stupid- Ity Captain Selwyn In confused tri umph you never gave me a chance I mean you always were nice inin the same way you are to Drina I liked itdont please misunderstand only I knew there was something else to mesomething more nearly your own age It was jollyIto know you were really fond of me but youthful- si tors grow faster than you imagine And now when you come I shall venture to believe it Is not wholly to dome kindnessbuta little to do yourself one too Is that not the basis of friendship 1 YesCommunity and equality of Interests isnt it YesAndin which thethe charity of superior experience and the Inattention of intellectual preoccupation and the amused concession to ignorance must Isgthat It too- Astonishment and chagrin at his mis conception of her gave place to out right laughter at his own expense Where on earth did youI mean that I am quite overwhelmed under your cutting Indictment of me Old duffers of uiy age Dont say that she said That is pleading guilty o the Indictment and reverting to the old footing I shall not permit you to go back I dont want to Eileen I am wondering she said airily about that Eileen Im not sure but that easy and fluent Eileen is part of the indictment What do you call Gladys Orchil for example What do I care what I call any body he retorted laughing Their light hearted laughter mingled uncontrolledol after peal She sat huddled up like a Schoolgirl lovely head thrown Back her white hands clasping her knees he both feet squarely on the floor leaned forward his laughter echoing hers

barbarous use of the comb Never pull or tug at long hair us- a e long sweeping stroke if there are no tangles If there are work at each one lightly and separately till it is re moved f Always begin at the ends of the hair working up gradually If the IY fl fr f h f T z Vfi tangles ire very badi itis rafcelFtetter to thread them with the fingers before tdEtbe combed in small strands which are Jf kept separate till the entire head has been gone over In the case of an invalid whose hair has not been combed for several days it Is well to rub a little oil or vaseline on the hair which helps to take out the tangles more easily Even for a short illness the hair should be parted down the middle from the fore head to the nape of the neck and two plaits made Never endeavor to make the brush do the work of the comb The brush is for smoothing for giv ing that fine gloss so justly admired not to be driven fiercely through a mass of tangles Treat your hair gently as aj recious possession Remember it is womans crowning glory Gay Bedroom Slippers Not all the bedroom slippers that are shown as novelties are copyable but the gay effects In colored canvas lined with quilted satin can easily be made

coats etc Make a good sized knot In your thread which should be fairly cdarse then place a small pearl button on the inside of the coat Put the needle first through the material starting from the right side of the garment then through the small button then back again through the material and right through the big button Continue to stitch through and through until the button feels quite firm then give the thread a twist or two round the base of the top button and finish off securely There will then be no fear of the buttons coming off or tearing away the cloth Mice Dont Like Camphor

coal mine inspector of Missouri has a fixed belief that longevity and coal mining go together You never hear of a coal miner having consumption said Mr Thom ag unless he contracted the disease before he went into the and even then he finds the peculiar properties of a coal mine beneficial to his lungs and he often becomes well and strong by reason of his work under the groundWe have a number of hardy miners In Missouri who were taken Into the pit In the old country Wales at six seven and eight years to trap per boys These youngsters kept steadily at work until they were promoted to be miners assistants and then regular miners and thrived mjghtily under conditions which in most trades would retard their deve- lopmentI mean beginning work at that early age It seems if Providence had given health to the miner asa recompense for the hazard of his calling Nearly all of those who manage to dodge falls QII rock breaking cables and other dangers incident to the craft live to n green old age They not only live workI Osler he knew how many men far past 60 were yet working In the mines at Bevier Uncle Johnnie Griffith who died a few months ago at the age of 84 worked in the from the age of seven until a year before he died He began as a trapper boy In Wales his father carrying him to the mine on his back His last work was In Mine 61 of the ventral Coal company near Bevier and he made a full hand every day for three years after he was 80 With the exception of a short time that he ran a hoisting engine Mr Griffith had practically been in the threequar centuryI made some research at Bevier the largest coal camp in the state and finds that there are there a number of men who have been at work for half a century or more on coal mines and are still vig orousAnd heres another thing remarked Tom Williams a veteran who had to abandon the pit some years ago owing to a of rock never hear a miner puff and blow when he runs His wind is as good as an athletes His lungs are sound although coated thick with coal dust V Nearly everybody at Bevier burns coal for all purposes because it is cheap Most other towns in these partsuse wood for fireplaces and heating Now in time the tops of the Bevier houses become coated with coal soot from their chimneys and the rain after falling on the roofs passes Sintothe Wells and they drink it A Bevier family doesnt like water unless it is caught that way and goes through that process thats the only kind of water tastes good to em Why Because It has properties that kill pneumonia and typhoid fever germsIts an absolute fact that

the Past Were Fair In Their Treatment of the Gentle Sex Proverbs regard the fair sex almost exclusively from the point of view of a man of the old schoola man that is who believes in the absolute in feriority of woman and in the stern necessity of making her know and keep her place There is one with quite a Spanish air of jealous jailer ship which says that a woman should come but thrice abroadto be bap tized married and buried Burton quotes it in his Anatomy of Melan choly but obliged to admit that the philosopher who said it was too straitlaced Straitlaced is hardly the adjective that the modern suffragist would use Another of these masterful proprietary proverbs is the wellknown A spaniel a wife and a walnut tree The theylbOne talking proverb of undoubted truth is that which saysuA woman may knit a knot with her tongue she cannot untie with all her teeth This was familiar more than three centuries ago and may still often be heard in the north especially in Scotland with reference to an unwise or inadvisable marriage It is also used quite rightly of men fn same connection With regard to abuse in general it is quite certain and men may well freely adult the charge which can hardly be denied that many of the lords of creation are arrant gossips any wearer of petticoats Matrimonial proverbs a whole bear marks of masculine authorship and press rather hardly on the weaker sex Sayings in praise of marriage and of good wife are comparatively rare How ever Cupid may be depended upon to set the proverbs of ill omen at defiance as well as the maxims of dence and forethought that are so freely quoted by those who have es caped the little gods shafts for Love is as warm among cottagers as tiers and as an Italian saying has Love can neither be bought nor sold its only price is love Another old saying still often heard in country places where old modes of thought as well as old forms of speech still linger exhibits a most unfeeling disregard for womans tears The tears of beauty in distress are usually supposed to be among most power ful weapons in the arsenal of feminine charms but hearts of our forefa thers or some of them must have been steeled against lachrymal assault when they were able to say that it is great a pity to see a woman weep as it is to see a goose go barefoot or one seventeenth century writer phrased it There is no more pity to be taken of her than to see a goose goe barefoote This might have been reserved for shedders of crocodile tears or for those curiously endowed folk who are able to make their eyes overflow by a mere effort of will such as the beautiful young lady named Sophy Streetfield who was one of the circle that gathered round the Thrales and Dr Jonsonat Streatham Weep Sophy Mrs Thrale would say and thereupon without the movement of a muscle slightest disturbance of the calm repose of her lovely coun tenance Sophys beautiful eyes would slowly nil with tears and in a few sec onds the round drops of pearled dew were chasing one another down her smooth cheeks Sophys weeping was certainly no more distressing than the barefooted progress of a goose A Counsel Scorned At a recent trial In Scotland
