GAVE HER DADDY AWAY.
Little One's Innocent Remark That
Left the Deacon Gasping.
Every Sunday some one threw a
button Into the contribution box of the
little church. The annoyed pastor
confided to h!s wife that he suspected
the button thrower to be stingy old
Deacon G., who had so strongly op
posed his "call" to the pastorate, but
that he dare not accuse him of it for
lack of evidence.
At a church "sociable" that week
some one suggested the playing of
(tames. Deacon G. had just partaken
of oyster soup at some one else's ex
pense and felt warmed and expansive.
"Why i:ot play 'Hut ton. bntton
who's got the button?' he inquired of
"Oh, yes!" exclaimed his youngest
daughter with enthusiasm. "And you
lend us the button, papa!" Then she
drew back, timorously. "Unless you
want to save It for next Sunday's con
tribution," she added, considerately.

HAD AWFUL WEEPING ECZEMA.
Face and Neck Were Raw Terribie
Itching, Inflammation and Soreness
All Treatments Failed.
Cuticura Proved a Great Success.
"Eczema began over the top of my
ear. It cracked and then began to
spread. I had three different doctors
and tried several things, but they did
me no good. At last one side of my
face and my neck were raw. The
water ran out of It so that I had to
wear medicated cotton, and it was bo
inflamed and sore that I had to put
a piece of cloth over my pillow to keep
the water from It, and It would stain
the cloth a sort of yellow. The ec
remaltched so that it seemed as though
I could tear i.iy face all to pieces.
Then I began to use the Cuticura Soap
and Ointment, and It was not more
than three months before It was all
healed up. Miss Ann Pearsons, North

By W. M. MAUPIN
Why Not Be Independent?
It seems to me that many peaple
miss the true savor of outdoors by de
pending too much on the assistance of
others. One finds on all sides tales of
how men go into the wilds and give
themselves over to the enjoyment of
nature, but somewhow many of these,
stories show plainly that it was not
the sportsman who did things. Too
'often the sophisticated reader and out-
'door man detects the fact, that it was
;the guide's skill which brought the
'game in range of the rifle. The guide
did the tracking, or he -called the
raoose, or he pointed out the game for
ithe hunter to see. Somehow most
trips into the wilds are not declara
tions of independence. They are, in
act, plain statements of dependence
wpon another's skill, another's knowl
edge and another's strength. After the
guide has driven the deer to one's
stand "To make a long story short,
half an hour passed before George, the
guide, who had come up, finally found
the deer dead." Then when wet leaves
gave good still-hunting "The guide
and I still-hunted," and It was the
guide who got the shots. I do not de
cry the value of guides, though I never
hired but one, writes Raymond S.
Spears in Recreation. If one is really
incapable of getting through the
woods alone, then stick to the guide
like a burr. If one wants packers,
cooks and other servants, well and
good. It does save time to nave one's
meals prepared and dishes -washed by
another. But when it comes to the ac
tual hunting, why not strike out alone
and shoot game without the, assistance
of another's eyes, another's ears, and
another's rifle, which happens fre
quently when, a guide with a gun is
alongside at every stride.
An Amusing Controversy.
An amusing controversy is going on
in Berlin between Miss Olga Desmond
and the Prussian diet regarding the
pult of beauty. As may be remem
bered, the lady is an "altogether" dan
cer who favors the unclothed truth as
a sartorial principle. Dr. Roeren, who
led the onslaught on her, has been
called down by her solicitor, who
draws attention to the fact that he
made use of certain very harsh terms
n his references to her. But Herr
Roeren declines to enter into corre
spondence with the alluring Miss Des
mond wise man! either directly or
indirectly, as to his "parliamentary ac
tivity in calling her by vigorous ad
jectives. The affair has attracted an
enormous amount of attention in Ber
lin circles, and the dancer is not likely
to suffer any immediate pecuniary loss
through the debate in the diet. It is
declares the Boston Herald, a good
deal as if the beauteous Miss Garden
should be haled up for her posturings
in Strauss' music drama by an insen
sate member of congress; therefore
Dr. Roeren's interpellation on the cult
of the nude falls fiat, while Berlin
Paris streets must be in a queer way
when the prefect of police, M. Lepine,
has to issue a mandate that it is a pun
ishable offense to throw orange or ba
nana skins into the streets, and that
anyone eating an orange in them will
be watched by eagle-eyed policemen.
It Is embarrassing enough to eat an
orange without the police inspecting
Ithe operation, and to conceal evi
dences of the crime must be worse yet.
But M. Lepine's order is absolute. He
says it is a detestable habit, that it en
dangers life, for the fruit eater is self
ish, and casts away the slippery skins,
regardless of who may slip on them
and break a bone! No, not even Into
the gutter can any such refuse go!
Persons who have slipped on the pave
ments frequently sprained or fractured
their limbs, and with the rapid traffic
of motor cars and 'buses there is every
chance of accidents that will prove
fatal. The home dust bin is best.
Now a tuberculosis expert declares
that if he has five years and sixteen
millions he can exterminate the dis
ease from the face of the earth. The
time he can have for the taking; the
millions might be handed over to him
by some of the billionaires who are in
daily dread of dying rich. As yet, how
ever, there has been no wild rush to
hand over to him the curse of wealth

The answer to the question: "Are

Quick Action on Insanity Bill.
Upon motion of Ransom the senate
rules were suspended and H. R. No.
118 was advanced to a third reading
and passed. This measure was intro
duced in the house by Wilson, but
Ransom pxnlainpd that it had been
prepared by Attorney General Thomp -
son and his deputy, Grant Martin, who
were anxious that it pass at once.
It carries the emergency clause and
will become a law as soon as it re
ceives executive approval.
This measure provides that when a
person has been condemned to death
and the question of sanity is raised,
the matter shall be referred to the dis
trict judge from the district in which
the condemned person was convicted.
Should the judge, upon making inves
tigation, find that the prisoner might
be mentally deranged, he shall sum
mon the superintendents of the three
state insane hospitals, who shall pass
upon the case. Should they report
that the convict is insane, sentence
will be suspended, otherwise it will
be carried out.
Changes Banking Bill.
The joint committee on banking In
the legislature has been at work for
the past two or three days, and has
made several changes in the bill as
One of the most important is that
relating to assessments to build up a
guaranty fund. Instead of making the
first two assessments i-2 of 1 per cent,
it is proposed to make one assess
ment of 1-2 of 1 per cent in July of
this year, 1-4 of 1 per cent in January
of next year and 1-4 of 1 per cent in
July, 1910. After that there shall be
an annual assessment of l-10th of 1
Instead of a maximum of 2 per cent
that may be levied in any one year
the maximum is placed at 1 per cent
a year. The provision prohibiting
loans to stockholders in excess of 50
per cent, once taken out, was restored.
To Elect the Local Assessors.
After a discussion ranging from Fri
day morning until Friday afternoon
the two Skeen bills providing for the
election of precinct assessors were
passed. The two bills, H. R. 214 and
215, contain one of the chief "home
rule" pledges of the democrats.
The chief point of discussion was
the retention of county assessors. The
counties 6t small population want to
do away with the county assessor as a
useless luxury. The richer counties
want him retained, believing he is
worthy of his hire. The bills finally
passed without amendment. '

To Look Up Wayne Normal.
The report of the finance commit
tee on the purchase of the Wayne
normal school which placed it on gen
eral file recommended that a commit
tee of five be sent to Wayne to inves
tivate the situation. Wilson of Polk
moved to reconsider the adoption of
the report. He said $35,000 had al
ready been appropriated for a normal
school a)t Ainsworth and he did not
believe in spending any more money
iust now on normal schools. Kuhl
warned him that if his bill was turned
down the other sections of the state
would be remembered by the north
when their appropriations came up.
He thought the purchase a good propo
sition and the price of $100,000 only
about fifty cents on the dollar. Graff,
a member from the .northeast, was
opposed to buying the school and in
favor of a reconsideration. Speaker
Pool appointed a committee consisting
of Leidigh, Holmes, Bowman, Fogarty,
McColl, Nettleton and Bushee to in
vestigate the merits of the purchase.
