THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1908.
There was a time, not so many
years ago, when bananas wer
a luxury, and eating them waE
an indication of extravaganc(
or wealth. Not so now. Thic
delicious fruit is plentiful and
cheap and within, the reach ol
every one, and the man that
goes along the street eating
this fruit attracts no attention.
But this change in the condi
tion of things has brought about
a ctrolessn'ess that should be
checked. Throwing banana
peelings on the sidewalks. It is
dlangerous. A man oil busilnes
bent comes hurrying down the
street, steps on a peel, and as
his head comes in contact w itl
the sidewalk the stars that
dance before his eyes are envel
oped in a sulphurous vapor not
conducive to his spiritual wel.

Is poor econotny,for you are prot
ty sure in get somet~hing om th,
uraer that you do not need, sim-'
ply because it is cheap. "Oh!
it will conge In handy some
time," is the way you put it.
The average bargain hunter
very much resembles old Mrs.
Toodles in this respect. Mrs.
Toodles was a fiend for bar
gains, and attended every auc
tion near and far, and when
Mr. Toodles would ask what she
wanted with many of her pur
chases she would Invariably re
ply: "0, it's a handy thing to
have in the house." In the
days of the Toodles' it was the
custom to have a plate, contain
ing the name of the resident,
ori the front door of the dwell
ing, so that the passer-by could
see at a glance who occupied
the house. One day Mrs. Too
dies attended an auction and bid
off a doorplate bearing the name
of.Tompkins, and to do the old
lady justice she bought it at a
bargain. Returning home, she
went at once to Mr. Toodles to
show him her remarkable bar
gain. But the old man was out
of humor, and blurted out:
"Now, Mrs. Toodles, what un
der the canopy do you want
with that thing?" 'Why, my
dear Mr. Toodles," replied the
old lady, "can't you see? In the
course of time there may be a
baby in the family, and that
baby may be a girl, and that
girl may grow up to be a wo
man, and may marry a man by
the name of Tompkins, and
then this doorplate will be a.
'handy thing to have in the
house.'" Now, the moral of
this little "skit" is, don't buy
second-hand doorplates because
they are cheap, but call on our
advertisers, where you can ex
amine the goods. Keep the
money in your own country,
i and ple xse, whei doing your
L trading, mention that you saw

. Be Kind In Little Things.
The sunshine of life is made
Up of very little beams that are
- bright all the time. In the nur
- sery, on the play-ground and in
the school roomi, there is room
all the lime for little acts of
kindnoss that cost nothing but
are worth more than gold or
silver. Tfo give up something
when giving up will prevent un
happiness; to yield when per
sisting will chafe and fret
others: to go a little wa~y around
rather than come1 against an
other; to take an .ill word or a
cross look rather than to resent
it; these are the ways in which
clouds and storms are kept off
and a pleasant,smiling s',nshine
secure even in a humble home,
among very poor people, as in
familiesi in higher station.
Much that we term the miseries
of life would be avoided by
adoptin'i this rule of conduct.
Thank God,'some of us have

baby fingers; bitt a dear old.

In childhood, anda Amodth'ed' our
pillow in sickness; even reaching'
out to us in yearniing tender
ness, when her sweet spirit was
b~aptizenl in thle pearly spray -of
the river. Bksscle is he am
ory of Ant old-fashioned mother.
It foMts to us now, like the
beautiil porfume of some
woodland blossoms. The music
of other 'voices may be lost but
thoe ntraning memory of her's
will echo in our souls forever.
Other places will fade away
and be forgotten, but her's will
shine on until' the light from
heaven's portals shall glorify
When in the fitful pause of
busy life our feet wander back
to the old homestead, and cross
ing the welI-.worn threshold,
standing once more..in the low,
quaint room.,as hallowed by her
presence, how the feeling of
childish innocence and depend
ence comes over us, and twe
kneel down in the molten sun
shine streaming through the
western window-just where,
long years ago, we knelt by
our mother's knee, lisping "Our
Father." How many times
when the tempter lured us on
has the memory of those sacred
hours, that mother's words, her
faith and prayers, saved us
from sin. Years have filled
great drifts over between her
and us, but they have not hid
den from our sight the glory of
her pure, unselfish love.
That our Amcrican rorests abound in
plants which possess the most valuable
medicinal virtues is abundantly attested
by scores of the most eminent medical
writers and teachers. Even the untu
tored Indians had discovered the useful
ness of many native plants before the
advent of the whito raco. This informa
tion, imparted freely to the whites, led
the latter to continue investigations until
to-day we have a rich assortment of most
Valuable American medicinal roots.
