If You own a farm hold it in
your possession as you live.
If you have a mortage on it do
not yield to temporary discourage
ments and sell out, pay off the
mortgage and be free. This you
can do; any tract of productive
agricultural land will pay for it
more than once in a decade of
good times. A farm that has
grown old in one family becomes
the realm of sacred, happy
memories; it nourishes the spirit
of the past, inspires with whole
ome purpose and makes a subtle
plea for kindly, loving care.
Think of the farm as a living

preciative of zealous management,

Although this is the greedy age of

A NAVAL REBUKE.
Two Admimais, a Captain and a Fool
In Manila Bar.
When Dewey's fleet was at Manila
the late Admiral Chichester was then
, captain. On one occasion Admiral
Diedrichs, the German, sent out the
rene on an unrevealed errand and
without the customary notification to
the commander of the blockading fleet,
Admiral Dewey had suffered, he
thought, sufficlently from that sort of
thing, and so the admiral sent a vessel
icross the Irene's bows and notified
2er captain that she would not be per
nitted to depart without a statement
is to her destination. It was not Ad
mlral Diedrichs' mission to quarrel
with both the Amerlcan and the Eng
Ish fleets on this critical occasion, so
se sought to find out Captain Chiches
ter's purpose in cace of a collision. Go.
ng on board Chichester's ship, he an
grily exclaimed, "Did you see what
Dewey did to my ship?'
"Yes," repiled Chichester.
"What would you have done if it had
een an English ship?'
"Well," said Chichester, convenient
y assuming that the Irene's captain
lad sailed without orders from Die
richs, "I'd have put my captain in ar
'et, and then I'd have gone on board
:he Olympia and apologised to Admiral
Dewey for having such a fool in comn
nand of one of my ships."-Harpei's
A Poet's Nomsely Paes,
The poet Rogers was affieted with a
~otably uznpleasaxnt, cadaverous coui
enance, which, with all his intellectual
ower, was a mortideoation to him, To
ide hWs annoyance, he joked about bi$s
agliness incessantly and deceived his
trIends Into supposing him indifferent
to t. He once turned to Sydney
Smith, who, with Byron and Moore,
was dining with him, and said:
"Chantrey wants to perpetuate this
iserable face of mine. What pose
would you suggest that 1 should take?'
"If you really wish to spare the world
is much as possible," said the wit, "I
would, If I were you, be taken at my
rayers, my face buried In my hands."
Rogers laughed with the other per
ons present, but he shot a malignant
gance at the jester and, it Is said, nev
ir fully forgave him for the bonmot.
I am no friend to the people who re
eive the bounties of Providence with
