Tact in Conversation.
Pleasant conversation, among intel
ligent people, should be flowing and
natural,' neither stilted nor frivolous.
It should be instructive, without ped
antry, and polished without being af
fected. Those who really converse
reason without arguing, joke without
punning, skilfully unite wit and rea
sons, maxims and sallies, ingenious
raillery and severe morality. They
speak of everything in order that
every one may have something to say;
they do not investigate too closely, for
fear of wearying; questions are treat
ed with rapidity; precision leads to
elegance, each one giving his opin^n,
and Bspporting it with few words, says
the' New York Weekly. No refined
person attacks wantonly' another's
opinions, no tactful person defends
his own obstinacy. They discuss in
order to enlighten themselves, and
leave oft discussing where dispute
would begin; every one gains informa
tion ; every one recreates himself, and
all go away contented; nay, the sage
himself may carry away from what he
has heard matter worthy of silent
The coyote is a much despised ani
mal of the wild and woolly west, and
even Mark Twain's vivid description
of its powers of speed is not sufficient
to establish it in popular respect. But
it seems Colorado farmers have come
to the opinion that the coyote has
qualities heretofore unsuspected anrl
which if they do not add to his repu
tation for morality indicate a higher
grade of intelligence than he has been
credited with possessing. Colorado is
renowned in various ways; amoug
other things for raising the finest mel
ons. Now it appears the coyotes have
not only developed a taste for the mel
ons, but the sagacity to pick out the
ripest, best and sweetest. As a con
sequence, says the Trov Times, the
melon farms are frequently raided by
the beasts and the farmers are heavy
losers. Ordinarily a coyote is held in
such contempt that little or no atten
tion is paid to him. But when he be
comes a destroyer of Colorado’s
choicest melons he is daring fate too
much. It is now likely to be war to
the f’eath, and the coyote crop will be
killed off in order to save the crop of
Figures collected by the Internation
al Society of State and Municipal
Building Commissioners and Inspect
ors show that every week, on an aver
age, fires in the United States burn up
three theaters, three public halls, 12
churches, ten schools, two hospitals,
two asylums, two “colleges,'’ six apart
ment houses, three department stores,
two jails, 26 hotels—the fires at sea
shore resorts this summer will raise
the hotel average—140 “flat” houses
and 1,600 single dwellings. Such a
record of waste is bad, but it is not
surprising in a land of wooden build
ings. Moreover, many of the buildings
destroyed would have been torn
down if they had not been burned. A
countryman who suffered from a slight
fire said he had lost two houses and
three barns if you counted the dog
house, the. chicken house and the cow
shed. In such lists as the foregoing
a house is a house be it ever so
worthless, and a “college” may call
itself so even if it occupies but three
rooms and does most of its business
by mail:
Last year German yachts which
came here to race for the Roosevelt
cup were defeated. This year our
boats contesting for the Emperor Wil

succeed best in building for home wa
ters and for weather conditions to
which they are habituated. These in
ternational races, however, are not
without their usefulness. Yachting, a
clean, beautiful sport, is of great value
in its influence on the important sci
ence of ship-building.
The word tram is derived from a
man’s name—Outram—Thomas Out
ram. Outram lived In Derbyshire,
England, and in the beginning of the
last century he invented a peculiar
sort of track that diminished the fric
tion between wheels and roadbeds.
These tracks of Outram’s, though
nothing like a trolley track, were
called at first outramways, then tram
ways, and when street lines and street
cars came into existence they were
dubbed respectively tramways and
Joe Akkiojoglau, a Turk living in
New York, has had his name changed

it is none of our business, we approve

wear and tear on the alphabet.

Greater Need of Study of Economic
Principles by the Tillers of the
Soil—Building Up the
American farmers are the wealth
producers of the nation. In the United
States annually the products of the
farms exceed in value all the gold the
country has produced in a score of
years. If the term can be used in a
free republic, the farmers are the
American kings. The results of their
labors feeds not alone a single nation,
but assists in supplying sustenance
for a large part of the people of nearly
all lands of the earth. ’Tis the prod
ucts of the farms that give the means
of support to the great railroad sys
tems, that keep the thousands of great
steamers plying the oceans, that make
possible the thousands of great enter
•prises. While the farmer is among
the most independent classes of the
land, too often he fails to reap full
reward for the work he has accom
plished. He must fight combine after
combine, and pay taxes to support in
stitutions from which he receives no
benefit. This is because of the con
centration of capital in the hands of
a comparatively few in large financial
centers. But is not the farmer to
blame for this condition to a great
extent? Does he not make it possible
for the concentration of wealth in
large cities? He certainly does lend
his support to the building up of
trusts, and to capital concentration,
when he fails to patronize enterprises
in his home town, and refuses to help
build up its industries.
There is a "penny wise and pound
foolish" attitude on the part of farm
ers in many communities that is de
structive to their own interests. It is
seeing a profit, quite often purely
cmaginary, and in striving to gain it
lose sight of the truth that they are
wielding the sword that will eventual
ly inflict a serious wound to them
selves. This is the practice of pur
chasing goods at trade centers distant
from home. Towns and communities
are made wealthy by retaining as
great a part of the earnings of its
people as possible. The larger the
town can be made, the more valuable
becomes the farm located nejtr it, be
cause the home market is made bet
ter and higher prices are secured for
Money earned by the farmers and
the business men. if retained at home,
generally finds investment in new en
terprises that give employment to la
bor. and' add to the wealth of the
community and assists in lowering tax
ation. On the other hand, when the
earnings of a community are sent
away from it, the towns are deadened,
and farm values lowered, taxation is
made greater and the small imagined
gains to those sending away the
profits of their labor react against the
sender, who assists in concentrating
money in large financial centers in the
hands of those who pay no local
taxes. Generally the monied powers
of those distant cities dictate to the
farmers what prices shall be received
for the products of their farms, and
to the laborer the compensation he
shall receive for his labor, is not this
proposition plain?
Virtue in Right Kind of Advertising
in the Home Papers.
There is no apparent reason why
the merchant in the average town
should not be able to sell goods, class
and quality considered, as low as the
large city stores. He is under less
expense, and if he iB enterprising and
up-to-date, he can buy his goods at
as low a figure as the retailers in the
large cities. There is laxity observe!
in the management of business by
some merchants in rural towns. They
depend too much on trade drifting
their way without making the right
kind of effort to gain it. A merchant
in a western state who took it in his
head to use large advertising space
in his town paper, found that within
three months, by persistently follow
ing up a plan of using a half page in
the local paper for the publishing of
prices and describing goods, increased
his trade more than a third. From the
position of doing about the fourth
amount of business of any stoce in
the town, he rapidly raised to first
place. He is on the road to prosper
ity, and has been a benefit to the town
in general, drawing trade to it that
was never enjoyed before. This was
done within 30 miles of one of the
large western cities, and with the de
partment stores of the city advertis
ing in the same paper.
A Town Convenience.
Only for the farmers, the laborers
and others that comprise the great
part of the population, the merchants
of the towns would have little excuse
for being in business, and the mer
chant is a wonderful convenience to
■ people of his neighborhood. One can
not well get along without the other.
The merchant depends more upon the
success of the fanner and the laborer
than do either of the latter on the suc
cess of the former. Between them
there should be greater harmony. In
towns that are noted for activity and
progress, particularly in agricultural
sections, it will be found that it is
the united efforts of all classes of
workers that win.
Half-Finished Tasks.
Most lives are filled with half-fin
ished tasks which were begun with en
thusiasm but which have been drop
ped because the enthusiastic begin
ners did not have enough grit to carry
them to a conclusion. It does not
take much ability to begin a thing, and
we cannot estimate a person by the
'number of things he or she com

How They Are Built Up and What
Gives Them Permanency.
Towns and cities are built where
exist the greatest natural advantages.
Growth and importance depends on en
vironments and conditions. Require
ments are that there be some manner
of employment for their population:
Thus the business of the place fixes its
standing. It is then evident that the
greater are the resources of a country
and the more enterprising its people,
the more important will be its cities
and towns. Some locations have fa
vorable conditions for certain lines of
manufacture, and single Industries
support thousands, like the textile in
dustry at Fall River, and the manu
facture of jewelry at Providence, R. I.
Others have shipping facilities that
cause them to become great commer
cial centers. No city can exist within
itself, free and independent of tribu
tary territory, but must depend upon
a large scope of country to supply it
with the products necessary for the
sustenance of its people, and for the
marketing of its articles of commerce,
and its manufactures.
Towns and cities decay when their
business interests are destroyed. In
the west, particularly in the mining
sections, can be found hundreds of ex
amples illustrative of this fact. The
discovery of a mine is sufficient to
gather people to compose a city. With
the exhaustion of its mineral re
sources business is destroyed and the
town becomes deserted. . In agricul
tural sections exist commercial towns,
made necessary by the development
of the surrounding country. Such
towns are supported' by the trade that
can be attracted from a certain scope
of territory, and industries that can
be established to employ labor. With
development of tributary country, and
expansion of industries, and the exer
cise of enterprise many of these towns
attain the magnitude of cities and be
come important commercial and finan
cial centers. With their growth farms
adjacent Increase in value. The truth
of this is In evidence in nearly every
state of the union. While within the
boundaries of the United States proper
there are more than 86.000,000 of peo
pie there is room for millions and mil
lions more. There will be hundreds
and thousands more cities pulsating
with business come into existence.
Reader, is not your home town one
that may become a great city if you
only do your part to assist it toward
Trusts Cannot Well Compete with
the Products of Local Mills.
Never in the past has there been
such opportunity for the establish
ment of small enterprises in the cities
and towns of the United States as is
now presented. There is barely a lo
cality which does not possess some
advantages for certain lines of manu
facture or commerce. There is little
prospects for over-production as the
population of the country is increas
ing at an enormous rate, and new mar
kets are being opened continually in
foreign countries for American prod
ucts. Imports are decreasing ex
cepting of raw materials, and each
year shows an increase of imports.
Many lines are supposed to be in the
hands of combines, but these so-called
trusts can never prevent the success
of local enterprises in Bimilar lines
if the masses of the people will close
ly follow the home trade principle,
and as far as possible give preference
to local products. The great agri
cultural sections produce the wheat,
corn, barley, and other cereals which
find their way to large mills in far
off cities, are converted into flour,
starch and innumerable kinds of foods,
and in their manufactured state are
returned to the sections where the
grains were grown and sold at prices
that leave a large margin of profit.
How much more economical would it
be to convert cereals Into flour and
other foodstuffs in mills located in
the districts where the grains are
grown. Would not the farmer receive
a benefit in increased prices, the sav
ing of freight rates, two or more
profits that result from marketing, and
would there not be a great benefit
derived from the keeping at home
wages paid to laborers and the reten

Beware of Peddlers.

be required by some home dealer.

The Telephone.
Rural telephones are a boon to the
farmers. They can keep in close touch
with the markets, and all the doings
of the outside World. One the uses
that the 'phone can be well put to, is
the getting of late market news from

farmers who cannot use the telephone

No woman really likes to realize
that the ever useful bolero Is going
out of fashion—for a time at least!
This little garment is so essentially
practical and so generally becoming
that we have come to regard it as an
old and tried friend, without which
life would seem hardly possible: and
yet it is very certain that the bolero
is fast disappearang from the arena
of fashion.
The rage for three-quarter coats—of
varied styles—continues unabated,
and this autumn and winter we shall
see voluminous mantles adopted free
ly. Everything denotes that loose
outer garments, made of the most
I pliable materials, will be the leading
novelties of the coming season. The
general effect is” almost bizarre and
this effec* will be heightened when
we come to wear wraps of crepe de
chine, velvet and furs—mixed. Nev
ertheless, fragile materials will most
surely form the chief portion of our
autumn and winter wraps.
All the coats for the autumn and
early winter—are made with open
fronts. For this reason waistcoats
are, arid will continue to be, things of
immense importance. I have seen
quite a number of the dainty little
waistcoats of Irlande, small double
breasted, gilets which open in a V over
a frilled shirt front and which are fas-'
tened with the most exquisite buttons
of enamel, old paste, quartz set in gun
metal, and so on. There is a wonder
ful cachet attached to these semi
loose coats and dainty waistcoats.
They recall the "sporting” type of gar
ment, but at the same time they are
eminently feminine and picturesque.
J am certain that nearly all the best
of our early winter walking dresses
will show coats of the order just de
scribed and, in nine cases out of ten,
these coats will show long tight
sleeves which will reach quite to the
wrist. There can be no doubt about
the coming revival of long sleeves—
for the tailor-made costumes at least.
For afternoon wear we shall still have
elbow sleeves and even- those which
do not reach the elbow, but the long
sleeve for street wear is about to re
claim its lost position.
Combinations of color are to be
great features of the coming season,
1 and will afford opportunities for many
triumphs, and, alas, also for many
failures. One revival is the tone
which two seasons ago was known as
automobile, and may most easily be
compared to rusty iron, and this is
used with much effect in union with
dark smoke-grey. Smoke-grey alto
gether would seem to have irresistible
charms, and it-lends itself with special
grace to decorations of purple, plum,
and deep red and peacock blue, all of
which colors compete most successful
ly for favor of a dull, rather than a
bright, inclination.
Underground Electric Railway.
In order to, facilitate, and accel
erate at the same time, the collection
and delivery of letters and packages
in Vienqa, the ministry of commerce
is engaged upon a plan for an under
ground electric railway wlfich would
link together the chief and various
district post offices of the city, some
64 in all.
According to the plans which are
now under discussion, the line would
be built 26 feet below the surface of
the ground, and the tunnel would
have a height of five feet and a
breadth of four feet four inches. The
stations would be built underneath
, the post offices. The trains would run
at 20 miles an hour,' and would con
sist of a motor and three cars, each
carrying as much as the ordinary
| post van.
It is estimated that seven yeare
would be required for the construe-!
tion of the line. While it would cost
I an enormous sum of money, in the
long run the line could be operated
for much less than the present home
and wagon service, while the mails

dry with clean cheesecloth. The pianc
will look like new. This is what is,
used in piano stores.

About Curtain Poles.
Often when moving into a new

long curtain pole and if one is not ir

substantial one can be made by prop
