It takes hrntns now to sell ;
By hard work you can toll

That's the reason you full
And you can't inako n sale ,
If you'll change ull your wuys ,
Doing hard Work that pays ,
We'll forcivo all the past ,
And will call you ut lust ,

The very thought of putting several other
organizations ahead of the traveling men
sn "Drummers' day , " as suggested by Chief
Marshal Clarkson , at their meeting Satur-
Iny nlcht , very much disgusted some of the
DO.VS. They discussed It yesterday , but he
folded so gracefully to their wishes that the
natter will have no contrary effects upon
Lho occasion. However , all who expressed
themselves seemed to think it very poor
taste for the marshal to undertake the formu'
tion of a procession on "Drummers' day"
by putting them in any ether than the very
front position. "Why , wo are the attrac'
tion , " said one , which inspired another to
ileclare that "Only for the traveling men
it would bb an inferior affair. " "Xnat's a
fact , " chimed in the third , and it bus been
advertised every where as "Drummers' day.1
President Looectt then chimed in with :
"Our banner is inscribed 'Always to the
front ; ' therefore It would not do for us tc
be made tall-ondors. For my part , we will
march next to the military or not march
at all. "
"Why , certainly , " exclaimed Marsha
Clarkson. "Wo want to accommodate the
traveling man. They can have anything
they ask for. I simply felt that ns thev unc
the trades display are so closely allied it :
interest , it would bo merely a matter of gooc
taste as well as style to have them at the
he.id of the feature , but they want to bt
next to the Omaha Guards , and there is tin
place I will put them. "

And lied from square and from street ;
The day wo went walking together

And bright with its buttercups lay ;
The swaltows kept cddving over

When bold in , the beautiful weather

Northern people have always had a.
good many queer notions about their
cousins down this way , and the queerest
of all is the notion .that the southern
women are not practical , says the Sunny
South. On the contrary , the women of
the south take to business as tin urally
as a duck docs to water. Tboy have not
the tendency to isms that the fair north
erners boabt of , lliumc the Lord. Their
way is to take things as they find them ,
and make the best of the situation.
"Without the least appearance of ullort
or sounding of tom-toms , thoygo quietly
about paying their way. and their fail
ures are "too few to talk about. It was
nothing uncommon in old times to bee a
woman riding about in tlio iieldsbossing
the negroes and the overseer. She usu
ally supplemented this care on her own
account with a general supervision of
the country side , and her masculine
neighbors were only too glad to consult
her on matters of common interest.
Many a debt-burdened estate has been
freed by the feminine turn for detail , a
faculty that too many planters lacked
before and since the war.
