Is He Sick or Well?
From Saturday's Dally.
W. J. Streight was in doubt this
morning as In whether he was
sick or not, or as to whether he
should consult a physician or not.
In fact he was not, sure whether
he was afoot or horseback. Mrs.
Streight left town yesterday and
left her husband 15 eggs and
divers other kinds of food for him
lo prepare while she was gone
This morning he thought that a
couple of eggs would taste mighty
good for breakfast and they
were such nice, fresh eggs, too,
just in from the farm. Arter
cracking about seven of them he
found one that looked to be good;
then he started in lo find another
good one. After cracking the en
lire fifteen he had two that looked
all right. He cooked them and
had just finished eating them
when he thought that they tasted
a little strange. The more he
thought about, it the more be be
gan lo believe that the eggs were
bail. He has been having strange
feelings ever since, and by 10
o'clock he was sure that they were
spoiled. If his imagination
keeps on working as it has he
thinks that by noon he will be a
very sick man.

It Is Not Permissable.
A man came, into the Press
olllce the other day will; a long
winded complaint because a rural
carrier in this county would not
allow him to ride with him, al
though there was plenty of room
and the walking was very bad.
There is a reason, as the Postum
sbarKs say: Fncle Sam does not
permit his carriers to carry pas
sengers, and the penalty is heavy.
When the carriers haven't a mail
sack with them they are usually
pretty willing to carry a foot
sore passenger, but when on duty
if is against the rules. Leaving
Ihe foolishness of the rule entire
ly out of the question (if the rule
is foolish) no man can attend to
busines sand talk lo a neighbor
or visitor, and (hat is just what
carrying a passenger would
amount to with Ihe rural carrier
who has (roubles of his own.

La3t Call on Summer Goods.
The coming week or two is the
merchant's last chance to work
off his summer slock. Hut he cn.i
gel rid of il easily enough it !u;
will use the newspapers. Then
is a very large section of the peo
ple, in these days of high living
costs, who will sacrifice some
thing of style in order to get
things cheap. They will take
their chances on summer goods
being out of fashion next June,
if they are sure they are gel ting
a price discount. The modern
shopper does not take the bother
of nosing around the stores lo see
if Ihey are offering such dis
counts. She saves time and'
trouble by simply looking into tbe
newspaper advertising columns
for Ihe announcement of reduc
tions that she expects at this time
of year. An advertisement ap
pealing to these people is
peculiarly effective because the
purpose lo buy is so nearly form
ed. All that is needed is the slight,
additional impetus given by a
straightforward statement of
some prices and qualities. What
a mournful and solitary scene is
the store in August, that does not,

years a resident of' Pacific Junc

today for the (irsl time in eigh

all directions from Pacific Junc

She said i Hat there were fewer
