V. I'ett Kldgo, the English novelist,
Is a good story teller, and most of his
stories concern people In the poorer
ranks of life, and by far the greater
number of them have the merit of be
ing truo. Tho following contains a
rnre touch of human nature, and
speaks for itself. A certain club for
wotking girls in tho East end of Iin
don hnd recently elected a new mem
ber, and one day the secretary hap
pened to look out of tho window,
and w as surprised to see the new mem
ber rush up to a Btrange lad in the
street, punch him violently on the
heartrnnd then run away. The secre
tary remonstrated with her sharply,
to which the new member made re

with every detail of her husband's busi

of taking any Important step without

vice is often amazingly shrewd.

Tor Annual Registration.
City Clerk Bratton and City Attor
ucy Button, of Hastings, are preparing i
. measure for submission to the legis
lature providing for registration of
voters In Hastings and other cities
from 7,000 to 1!."..000 population, after
the manner of that now provided for
Lincoln and Omaha. Under the pres
ent laws applying to Hastings, and
other cities In the class named, only
those voters who have moved from
4no ward to another, first voters and
new voters are required to register.
Once registered a person need pay no
lurther attention to registration un
less he moves Into another ward. As
result of this Inadequate method of
registration the books contain about
2.500 names while (he largest vote
ever cast in Hastings was approxi
mately 2,000. The proposed measure
will be provided for annual registra
tion of all voters.

Among the dictionary definitions of
Jvulotisy is that of envy. True, an-
I other Is zealous watchfulness, but this
state of mind Implies fear, the uneasi

compatible with the perfect love which
casteih out fear. As associated with
love the word implies a dread of los

which to the timid perhaps Is natural
uud well nigh Inevitable in the flrst
stages of courtship.

Tho woman who already Is won, but

tho Victor chooses to claim his con

capricious and nervous. This mainly
Is due to the restraint which she is
putting upon herself and the haunting
fear that he may be in love with some
Hut when the lover has spoken and
each holds the plighted truJi of the
beloved, then Jealousy even In Its
most amiable form Involves a lack of
faith In the truth and the sincerity of
of the beloved which is anything but
complimentary, declares a writer in
the Chicago Tribune.
Whatever Its cause, jealousy Is
bound to be a disturbingvelement, and
the less indulged It Is the better. Al
ways the expression of It Is more
harmful than helpful. There Is a great
deal of truth In the doctrine of mental
suggestion as applied to love, and this
especially Is the case with men.
The jealous woman hates to hear
other women praised, and though she
possibly may remark upon their good
qualities herself, sho objects when one
of her own admirers, however faintly,
expresses admiration for another wom
an. And when she praises it Is with a
reservation. "She is pretty, but," etc.
No wise man would marry a jealous
woman, however much he might care
for her, could he realize how little
peace and comfort probably will be his
portion after marriage. No wise wom
an would marry a jealous man, since
she certainly could not hope to be hap
py If the did.
Jealousy Is responsible for more
broken engagements, more matrimo
nial unhapplness, than any other
cause, with the possible exception of
beastly intemperance In drink. Yet
people who ought to know better go
on excusing It, claiming that It is
the result of love and the natural out
come of a humble opinion of oneself.
Instead of being, as in nearly all
cases It Is, the result of colossal van
ity, a vanity which I3 exasperated at
the thought of precedence given to an
other. The man or woman whose tempera
ment will allow him or her to pas
through life superior to the pangs of
Jealousy has cause to be thankful. It
Is wine to remember the saying of tho
Greek sage, that "what Is worthy of
Jealousy Is not worthy of love."

Character Written on the Face.
Faces are records on which appear
the result of every selfish, malicious
thought and every wicked desire. The
woman who ties into fits of temper
soon looks like an -orgo or a dragon.
The man who dissipates and drinks
soon acquires the loafer's countenance.
Moreover, It Is our good, true thoughts
that make for our happiness, as well
as our appearance. All the mental and
physical systems are practically con
trolled by these little guests of our
brnins. Lie awake all night and worry
and behold your next morning face.
It will Bcare you to death. You can
change your embittered moods by ex
ercise out of doors, by going to church,
reading wholesomely stimulating
books, by associating more with chil
dren and by doing good, kindly acte
for those who are about you.
Threshermen cannot well afford to buy wood ma
chines when it is possible to buy a fire and weather
proof steel machine. Being fire-proof, threshermen
are free from the risk oh wood machines and insurance
is unnecessary. We have had several machines go
through fires, and after a new set of belts and a lew
repairs were put on, the machine was running again
after only a day's delay. Ordinarily it would take sev
eral days to replace a burned mi
mean a loss of a large part of the season's run. Thresh
ing machinery is subject to more hard usage and ex
posure than any other, which accounts for its usual
rapid deterioration. But the CASE Steel Separator is
weather and water-prcof ns well as fire-proof. The
threshing season is fast approaching and the best thing
that you could do now is to order a CASE Rig. It will
save you moriey.

Steam is the only reliable method for developing
power for the heavy operations of agriculture, plowing
and pulling stumps. One of the most important re
quirements of traction and portable engines is a safe,
strong boiler of suitable proportions, well made and
thoroughly tested before leaving the factory. As a
measure of safety we test each of our boilers first un
der a cold water test of 200 pounds per square inch;
second when the completed engine comes from the
erecting room it is kept under 130 pounds steam pres
sure for several hours and worked on a Prony brake.
Owing to the construction and these rigid tests there
are no complaints from customers because of leaky
boilers or defective engines.
