in this country, you Know,” said the
Englishman. ''It is the best vegetable

always canned, you ^understand, al
ways canned.
"Now, why in the name of common
sense do you take the fine, fresh ar
ticle, you know, can it, and offer it 1
to people to eat, when they might bet- !
ter eat it in its pristine condition? ;
You see what l mean? Eh? But no, \

Man Had Grateful Remembrance of
Service, but Was Unable to
Repay It.
“When I was a farmer in Illinois,”
says a representativ in congress,
"there came to me one day an inter
esting looking Individual, whose lace,
though he w as a si ranger in those
parts, seemed oddly familiar to me.
"The man had *onj h| to water his
horse. As he waited, he said: ‘About
ten years ago a pool boy came this I
way and you took him in.'
"I gazed at the speaker, puzzled.
“‘Your kindness to that poor boy
was most exceptional.' continued the
stranger. ‘You fed him, encouraged
him, gave him clothes and two dollars
and sent him on his way feeling pret
ty fine, lie observi d at the time he
would never forget your generosity.
Do you remember?'
" ‘Not precisely,’ I replied, but I had
a vague remembrance of the occur

that you would never have occasion to

He Would Resign.
The story is told of an ICnglish
army examiner who once had before
him a stupid candidate. The candi
date being apparently unable to an
swer the simplest questions, the ex
aminer finally grew most impatient,
and in a burst of sarcasm demanded.
“Let it be supposed, sir. that you
were a captain in command of in
fantry; that in your rear was an im
passable abyss; that on both sides of
you there rose perpendicular reeks of
tremendous height: that in front of j
you lay the enemy outnumbering you
ten to one. What, ir. in such an
emergency would . do?" "Sir,” re-1
sponded the applicant for military dis
tinction, “I should resign.”
Memorial to Mary Anning.
Lyme Regis church, which, like
many another building in that quaint
old Dorset seaport, is in danger of
slipping into the waves, lias compara
tively little of interest for tourist or
townsman to loiter over. Its most re
markable memorial is the stained
glass window to Mary Anning. This
was the schoolgirl who. in 1811, dis
turbed the lost rest of the saurian
monster — icthyosaurus Platydon—
whose remains now lie in tha Natural
History museum at South Kensington.
As curious a find as any that ever
came to the net of a child on the
beach. But Mary Anning possibly
had that sort of thing in her blood,
for her father was the proprietor of
a curiosity shop.—London Chronicle.
Anytning to mease.
"Hubby, 1 want to go to an ex

"All right, my dear," said the great

“I prefer the beach.”

Writes of Gambling Houses and
How to Suppress Them
"Roasts" Poor Man.
There goes another moralist, you
know him by the first grouchy he
i haw' that comes from his wailing
throat. You can bet your old straw
hat that he is a "good man” a mor
I alist from his toes up. These fel
j lows sit on the fence while their
| wives, preachers and hard working,
us well as good wishing neighbors
roll up their sleeves and do their
j best lo save the people that \w*nt to
| be saved, but these never-sweat, al
ways howling moralists know
jtjsi where they fail.
They always howl, "plenty to do
itt home” whenever the hat is pas's
td for 'n'ssions. It strikes ,i chill to
their hearts to think of saving a.
heathen when there are so many at
home to save. He admits that his
wif< is earnest in her work.
I do not believe that he is
ever in earnest except in erit
ieis ing others. He seems to In post*
ed on how ,much law we nave and
how long it has been in force.
He also hints that he knew
how many dens of vice there were
in Falls City. Now a man with till
that knowledge stored under his der
by, ought to have been a power in
the town.
Now my dear "husband" how many
times did you invoke the aid of the'
| law to close those dens? While |
(those other people were earnest'
| in their work, why were you sii
tin|? on (lie fence watching them go
! liy ?
There are a lot' of people in Kails
; City that do not want salvation:there
! are those people everywhere. You
| can not save them with a log chain
and a forty-horse-powf r engine to
draw them into the Christian
churches, they simply will not be
saved. Christ did not save every
soul in any town lie ever entered.
Moralists, Pharisees arid hypocrites
refused to come. Now do you expect
your wife to save all of Kalis City?
No doubt she lias dom ten times as
! much to ;io it as you have ever done.
\ Herculean task in her own home, well
1 I guess, from the tone of your Ki
lter 1 11 bet she found that out long
ago, by close contract with the
if ail you fellows that profess
| goodness of heart, had as much
| earnest endeavor as you have grouchy
j grunts, the world would have more
saved people.
^ on say your»wife needs w aking
, up. Well I should smile; any one that
i lives with a fellow of your stripe,
( would get sleepy listening to your
I everlasting wail. It would make a
; circus clown get drowsy.
No. no need to bring an evangelist
to town to save you, you have enough
- -
goodness of heart now, or at least
ought to have, tor you have failed to
use any that nature endowed you
with, nor any that environment has
cast your way- you surely have' it all
stored up.
If you knew about the law and the
gambling houses, why did you not
go to work long ago? Law enforce
j ment is the duty of every good
citizen and not alone the- business
of the’ churches, the preachers and
the wives.
If the presuming to he honest e>ut
siders of this town, went to
; work in earnest, as you say your
! wife litis been doing, the town would
be a model in six months, but where
would you get time to growl about
| your wife? '•
j If you claim to be a gored man, a
1 good citizen and a good husband, you
i ought to see' to it that your town ij
mad - clean. Unless you tin. mu
have no business te> whine at other
people who see the light their way.
If your wife is trying to save some
soul that wants to be saved, in some
part of the world,she has a definite
aim, but where in the world tire you
doing your work? If you know just
how to save the world, why does it
not show tip? Saye your share of
Falls City, or make an earne’st ef
fort to do so. and you will get so
: very much Interested in the work
that you will shouj halle lujah wh< :
ever you hear of a soul saved any

The four Advent 'Sundays precede
tiie great festival of our Savior’s na
tivity. They are so called because
they are designated to prepare us to
commemorate the Advent or Coming
of Christ in the flesh at Christmas,
and also to prepare for his second
coming to judge the world. The Ad

In life, in life.ature, there is no
magic charm like that of personality,
but politicians are a I raid of it in their
business. Ol this they sedulously eul
timate the id^a that it must be con

never by individualities. Everything
is collective, nothing personal. . In

are the prime forces, and the old prac
