Stewart who holds a government posi
tion in the Philippines, is now in Aus
tralia, where he will remain for several
weeks selling goods which are manu
factured in the Philippines by the
government. It appears that the home
consumption is not great enough to
meet the production and it is neces

in other countries.
Farmers, remember the Farmers'
Institute to be held in Humphrey,
January 9 and 10. Some good prizes
are going to be offered for the best ten
ears of corn. At the institute held
two years ago we had an exhibition of
corn but no prizes were given for the
best; last year some nice prizes were
offered and there was a marked im
provement in I he quality of the corn
over the previous year, and while it
will perhaps be more difficult to pick
good corn this year for seed, we ex
pect however, that the exhibit thu
year will be an improvement over that
of last year. Arrangements have been
made to hold the institute in the new

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs.
John Boyer sympathize with them in
the loss of their little boy, Charley,
who died Christmas moruing at 7
o'clock. The little fellow had not
been feeling well for the past couple of
weeks, but nothing serious was thought
of until the day before Christmas, it
was deemed necessary to call a physi
cian and he was put in bed. From
that time on he gradually grew worse
although everything that was possible
to do was done to relieve him. The
night before he died he was able to
eat his supper and did not appear to
be seriously ill, but the ravages of
diseased kidneys and liver had such a
hold on the little fellow that it was
apparent that he could not live. The
funeral was held Wednesday afternoon
at 2 o'clock from the M. E. church,
Rev. Carroll preaching the sermon.

A clergyman, discussing

"Many a love tragedy is caased by
a hoslx. .d's promise to a dying wife
that he will not marry again. He
thinks when he makes this promise
that it will be easy to keep. Whether
It Is easy or hard to keep, it la a
promise rarely if ever broken. Time
and time again widowers nave sought
me out for advice on this subject.
They are in lore, bnt they promised
their dead wares not to marry again.
Shall they break or keep this promise?
I can only advise them to do as their
conscience dictates. At the same time
I think it is selfish pt dying wives to
extract such promises from their bro
ken hearted husbands. Such prom
ises, by the way, are rarely extracted
by dying husbands from broken heart
ed wives. But. then, when the dead
husband's will is read it Is usually
found that if the widow marries again
the money is all taken from her. So

formed in the seventeenth century only
two or three have escaped the general
fate of conflagrations, sieges and pil

castle, near Dresden, while In the cele

are to be seen in an unrivaled show
the wonderfully inlaid arms used by
the elector. The great banqueting hall
of the castle of Morltzbnrg is one of
the sights with which ho doubt many
a traveled reader has been charmed.
It Is a chamber of noble proportions,
sixty-six feet long by thirty-four wide
and thirty-eight feet high. On Its oth
erwise unadorned white walls hang
seventy-one pairs of magnificent ant
lers, which one may describe as the
most famous of their kind In the world.
Not a single one carries less than
twenty-four tines or Is less than 200
years old, while some are probably
double that age.

case with the celebrated clock in the
tower of the Church of St Rombant at
Mechlin. A writer in La Nature thinks
this clock possesses the largest dials
that exist in the world. There are four
of them, one on each side of the great

Tree economy Is not 'stinginess or

expenditures, for it always has the
larger end in view. True economy
means the wisest, expenditure of what

It Is not a good thing to save a nickel
