. When this anecdote was told to the man
ager of tho dressmaking department of a
larg store she nodded understanding.
With a wave of her hand toward a long
row of very tall case filled with Imported

marked: "It was only yesterday that' a customer
asked mo if we had any patrons tall enough
to wear some of those gowns, and I told
her yes, we hid. In reality, though, there

almost Impossible to lengthen It, and as the

from the speech of President Taft almost
anywhere out west; Congressman Jones
seen flushing with pleasure at the right
hand of the president; loud cries of "Hur
ray for Jones!" In the air. If Congressman
Jones and all the rest of the republican
representative who have received the
presidental "Jolly" during the last few

The prospect for a great increase In the
production of wheat Is excellent In :he
opinion of Secretary Wilson, and for two
reasons: first, the greatly enhanced mar
ket value of that staple would surely
tempt the American farmer to plant more
wheat, and, second, thanks to th discov

wheat in large part of the country hith

the situation by Interjecting the word that
at twenty-one stations In the west Inves
tigators were ascertaining the conditions
of Its growth.
Durum Is a Siberian grain, peculiarly fit
for soils where there is but a small amount
of moisture present. The agricultural de

to take place next Monday, November 8.
ome question arose as to the legality of
the sale of the delinquent taxes by an
appointed treasurer when not made- In
strict compliance with the law. The law
requires that the commissioner can ap
point In the case of a vacancy, but that

which to give the required notice. Under
the absolute necessity of having a county
treasurer to officiate at the tax sale, State
Attorney Herbert late this afternoon au
thorized the county auditor to call a spe

o'clock, at which time th treasurer shall

Irish girl. 8ha must smile, smile, smile.
But her smile must be ever varied.
"My job is to teach smiling as a fine art.
I call my work the poetry of the smile, and
when I am through with my pupils they
are ready to acknowledge that they can
smile. Before that they were merely trying
to look pleasant.

"At this she burst out laughing, as I

off your stock and neck trimmings.'
"One assistant was meanwhile warm
ing some cold cream in a double boiler,
while another assistant was getting ready
the perfumed face hose. In a few min
ute I had my patient bending over a
wasbstand while th stream from th little
hose played upon her face, which grew
pinker and pinker under the treatment.
"When she lifted her head her skin was

" 'But I have had a happy life and yet
