When will people stop encouraging
beggars aud fake peddlers? Every few
days one or more of this class of people
canvas this town. Monday morning
two well dressed men walked in from
the sonth and proceeded to "work" our
people. One of them bad wire clothes
hangers and the other needles and other
trinkets. Both told bard lack stories.
One was lame, at least be carried a cane,
though he frequently forgot to limp.
The other was sick with consnmption.
Tbej' succeeded in picking up several
dollars, people buying their truck, not
because they had any use for it, but
"just to help them along." They left
on the evening train, each with his bide

bnttlefull in his pocket. Tuesday n
woman was calling at residences and
business houses, selling lamp mats. She
said she and her family were driving
from Dakota to Lincoln, the whole fam
dy were sick, they hadn't bad a bite to
eat that day, and had no money to buy
even a loaf of breail with. And she
could produce a Hood of tears every
time she told her story. We never saw
as leaky a person. It is a wonder that
any of that family are alive today, for
this is the third time in the past two
years that they have been here, and
each time they were in the same desper
ate condition. Down at the stock yards
she had a comfortable bouse wagon, and
a good team of horses, a healthy looking
man and several sleek dogs that didn't
look as though they ever saw a sick hour
or felt the pangs of hunger. The proper
way is not to listen to such people,
They are adepts in their line, but without
exception entitled to no consideration.

Miss Kate Oaterman nnd ber little
neice, Alice, bad an exciting experience
Monday afternoon as they were driving
to town. As they came along the rail
road track about two miles west of town
a passing train seated their horse and it
began to plunge and run. It finally ran
into the fence at the side of the right-of-way
and upset the buggy. Mies Kate
was dragged for jiuite a distance be
tween the buggy and the fence and Anal
ly lost her bold on the lines. After she
had done so, little Alice managed to
reach over the dash-board and recover
tbcm, after which she kept the horse in
the center of the road and was finally
able to turn it around and drive hack to
where her aunt was. The latter, very
fortunately, was not seriously injured
although she was painfully bruised and
received a gosh on her face. It is a won
der that she was not killed when thrown
against the fence, but good fortune was
on her Milt in this instance.
;. K. MeUiirne, who recently came west
to investigate a deal iu which a farm
tlmt he owned in Perkins county had
been transfered to another party without
his knowledge, committed suicide nt his
home near Monlpelier, Ohio, on Thnrs
dny, March .!rd. He took carbolic acid
atul was found dead by bis wife in the
barn on their farm. No reason is known
fur his net. His brother-in-law, .1. K.
Dorehiuer, who was looking after his in
terests in land matters, received a letter
from him which was mailed but a day
before his death and in that he appeared
perfectly rational and did not appear to
he worrying over the trouble concerning
the farm. Mr. lleOarn was a brother of
Mrs. M. A. Brannan. He lived here for
a number of years and is known to man)'
of the old settlers. He was well to do
and bis business affairs were iu good
condition. What could have been the
cause of his act is a mystery, but it is
likely that be was suffering from tempor
ary mental derangement.

We notice that one of the farmers in
Alexis township is again indulging in
"fast driving" on our streets and some
of these das somebody is going to get
run down. It's now up to our city dads
to make him slow up while passing
through the streets.
Ever since the wash out of the wagon
bridge between Columbus and Bel I wood
our little burg each day has been Oiled
with people and our stores are all doing
a thriving business. It is now up to
our business men to try and bold a good
part of this new trade.
Tho more ignorant a man is the more
contentious be will be. When a man
learns enough to know that he does not
know much, then there is hope for him;
but the stupid individual who is eternal
ly running his tongue about things he is
absolutely ignorant of, there is no living
with him in peace. He is worse than the
7 year itch or the cbiggers in hot weath

comes around, in order to avoid his fool
talk on subjects he knows nothing about.

Mrs. Foakett received word from Rev.

be was stuck for two days in a snow
drift and all he had to eat was the con
tents of a traveling man's sample case
which was shared among the passengers

with a daughter. Mrs, Makever accom
panied ber as far as Central City, where
she caught a through train . Mrs. Roroff
has made her home here for many years,
living alone since the death of her hus

will be cared for in her declining years.
A modern dude wit!: narrow striped
clothes, saddle colored shoes, a loud
necktie, hair parted over his nose and
amoking a cigarette, addressed his best
girl as follows: "If you were me and I
was you, what would you do?" She hesi
tatingly said with a smile: "I would
take off that hideous tie, put that vile
cigarette in the stove, part my hair on
the side and pray God for brains."
Too many people pass through lifo op
pressed by the idea that they are slaves
dominated by environment and iniluen
ca that are fixed; that they are victims
of circumstances and cannot change
their condition. This is a sad mistake.
We are largely what we think we are,
aud our station in life, and our character
is dependent upon our thought and will.
We are not victims of circumstances, ex
cept on rare occasions. We may be mas
ters of our lives if we will. Ex.
A. P. Linder met with a very senouB
accident at Dnrant on Monday, lie was

and the wagon passed over his arm above
the elbow fracturing the bone, the end
protruding through the flesh. lie was
cared for by a local pby6ican but the in

able to return and that his injury will
