The Spirit Moved Him.
An old mgro preacher approached
t soul hern physician and offered
crap of paper.
Please, sab, rend dat," he Bald.
The physician found it to be an ad
vertisement in which It was asserted
that whisky was the only genuine and
reliable specific fur malaria.
"But you haven't any malaria,
uncle," be assured the old man; "none
of it around here at all."
"Whan do dey hnb it de wusl, Mars
Jeems?" the old man asked, curiously.
"It's pretty bad down on the Cy
pres river," the physician told him,
taming a locality some 20 miles away.
A few days later the physician was
passing the old fellow's cabin and ob
served him' climbing upon a rickety
eld wagon piled high with hpusehold
good a. ,
"Moving, Uncle Ned?" he said.
"Where are you going?"
"Mars' Jeems," the old man said,
solemnly. "Ah done had a call; de
perit done move me to go wuck in

Tribute to French Wives.
French girls make good wives. The
Trench bride is comparatively less ex
travagant than her Hrltlsh or Ameri
can sister. Where the liritish wife re
quires $1 a week, the American wife
$18 or $-0 a week for the housekeep
ing, the French wife will manage ad
mirably on fl.HO. The Frenchwoman
does not regard her husband as a
mere money making machine and her
bouse simply as a pluco to sleep In.
As soon as she is married she is her
husband's partner in business as well
aa In private life. She considers it
her duty to make herself acquainted
with every detail of her husband's busi
ness. No French husband will think
of taking any Important step without
first consulting his wife, and her ad
vice is often amazingly shrewd.
Dave Gibson delivers himself of this
epigram, which we grab off before he
gets a chance to print it:
"The business of a business man is
1 to see that his employes attend to it."

' Try to Break Into Station.
An attempt was made to break Into i
the Uurllngton station at Heaver City
ut 11 o'clock Monday night. The
agent lives over the depot and was
awakened by the noise made by the
burglars who wem trying to force an
entrance through one of the windows
to the ticket office. Mr. Irwin, tho
agent, telephoned to the sheriff, who
organized a posse and started for the
elation, which is nearly a half mile
from town. His approach was no
ticed by the intruders und they mude
a hasty retreat to the east and were
not captured. There was a consider
able sum of money on hand at the
time, which Is suppose.! to have been
known to them. No clue to their
identity has ben discovered.

Violent Method of Courtship.
W. Pett'kRIdge, 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 t,hem have the merit of be
ing true. The following contains a
rare touch of human nature, and
speaks for Itself. A certain clubVor
working girls in the East end of Lon
don had recently elected a new mem
ber, and one day the secretary hap
pened, to look out of the window,
and was surprised to see the new mem
ber rush, up to a strange lad in the
street, punch him violently on the
head, nnd then run away. The secre
tary remonstrated with her sharply,
to which the new member made re
ply: "I'm very sorry; I won't do it no
more, if it's agin the rules; but per
haps you won't mind telling me, then,
how am I ever to get engaged?"
Immense Normandy Apple Crop.
Tills year will go down to posterity
in Normandy as the apple year. Never
until this year has a Normandy farmer
been known to express satisfaction
with his crop. His usual answer about
it is that "for a year where there are
no apples there are apples, but for a
year where there are apples there are
no apples to speak of." This vague
ness is a Norman peculiarity. You
cannot get a "yes" or "no" In answer
to a question from a Norman peasant.
"Well, perhaps yes," or, "After all, per
haps not," Is the nearest he will ever
go to a positive assertion. But this
year he admits to u good applo crop.
During the past month 50,000 railway
truck loads of apples have been sent
along the Western line as against
6,000 trucks last year.

JEALOUS MAN UNCOMPLIMEN
TARY TO LOVED ONE.
Perfect Faith Should. Follow the
Plighting of Troth "What Is
Wqthy of Jealousy Is Not
Worthy of Love."
Among the dictionary definition of
Jealousy is that of envy. True', an
other Is zealous watchfulness, but this
state of mind implies fear, the uneasi
ness of uncertainty, and this is in
compatible with the perfect love which
casteth out fear. As associated with
love the word implies a dread of los
ing the thing desired, a state of mind
which to the timid perhaps Is natural
and well nigh inevitable in the first
stages of courtship.
The man who is seeking to win a
woman and who has rivals in the field
hus a strain upon his nerves mid emo
tions which upsets his normal balance.
He becomes worried, fanciful und
The woman who already Is won, but
who must conceal her feelings until
the victor chooses to claim his con
quest, scarcely can fall to be restless,
capricious and nervous. This mainly
is due to the restraint which she is
putting upon herself nnd the haunting
fear that he may be in love with some
But when the lover has spoken nnd
each holds the plighted troth 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 disturbing element, and
the less indulged it is the better. Al
ways the expression of it is more
harmful thnn 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, she 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 mnn 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 wine wom
an would marry n jealous man, since
she certainly could not hope to be hap
py if she did.
Jealousy is responsible for more
broken engagements, more matrimo
nial unhappiness, 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 is exasperated at
the thought of precedence given to an
other. The man or woman whose tempera
ment will allow him or her to pass
through life superior to the pangs of
jealousy has cause to be thankful. It
Is wise to remember tho saying of the
Greek sage, that "what is worthy of
Jealousy is not worthy of love."
Character Written on the Face.
Faces are records on which appear
tho result of every selfish, malicious
thought and every wicked desire. The
woman who Acs Into fits of temper
soon looks like on orge or a dragon.
The man who dissipates and drinks
soon acquires tho loafer's countenance.
Moreover, it is our good, true thoughts
that muke for our happiness, as well
ns our appearance. All the mental and
physical systems nre practically con
trolled by these little guests of our
brains. Lie awake all niht and worry
and behold your next morning face.
It will scare you to death. You can
change your embittered moods by ex
ercise out of doors, by going to church,
rending wholesomely stimulating
books, by associating more with chil
dren and by doing gooi!,, kindly acts
for those who are about you.
Women Like Pockets.
"Talk about the small boy and his
desire for plenty of pockets," remarked
Harry New, manager of one of the
biggest concerns In tha city or in the
west, manufacturing women's gar
ments, "no youngster with his first
pair of trousers is half ns excited
about his pockets as is tho average
woman buying a cloak or suit. Within
the last few years the question of
pockets has come to be an important
matter in women's garments. Wom
en not only like pockets for carrying
various small articles, but they can
even like them so placed in their coats
that they can walk with their hands
in them, the same as a man. It's get
ting so that we manufacturers hardly
dare put out a garment without paying
attention first of all to the pocket fea
ture." Cleveland Plain Dealer.

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 on wood machines and insurance
is unnecessary. We have had several machines go
through fires, and after a new set of belts and a few
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 machine, which would
mean a loss of a large part of the season's run. Thresh
ing machinery is subject to more hard usage and ex-
posurethan any other, which accounts for its usual
rapid deterioration. But the CASE Steel Separator is
weather and water-proof as 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 money.
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.
