HOWELL PLANER AND MATCHER

matter to sell your rough lumber
to advantage because most of

drop siding, window casing and
mouldings, for which there is an
unlimited demand at big prices.
The Hpwell Planer and Matcher
does all this work to perfection.
You can also make big money
by working up all your slabs and
waste material into Lath and
Shingles. All you need for this purpose is our Lath Mill and Shingle Machine. We build the
best and most up-to-date machines of this kind on the market which we can furnish you at
manufacturers prices. Keep your plant running all the time. Remember we build complete

Laurentian Highlands the Oldest Land
In the World.
Stretching across Canada north of
the St. Lawrence and ending in the
regions about the source of the Missis
sippi is a range of low granite hills
called the Laurentian highlands. These
hills are really mountains that are al
most worn out, for they are the oldest
land in America and. according to
Agassiz. the oldest in the world.
In the days when there was nothing
but water on the face of the globe
these mountains came up, along is
land of primitive rock, with universal
ocean chafing against its Shores. None
of the other continents had put in
an appearance at the time America
was thus looking up. The United
States began to come to light by the
gradual uplifting of this land to the
north and the appearance of the tops
of the Alleghenies. which were the
next in order. Later the Rockies
started up. The United States grew
southward from Wisconsin and west
ward from the Blue Ridge.
An early view of the country would
have shown a large island which is
now northern Wisconsin and a long,
thin tongue of this primitive rock
sticking down from Canada into Min
nesota, and these two growing states
looking out over the waters at the
mere beginnings of monntain ranges
east and west. They were waiting for
the rest of the United States to ap

What the Lovers Intended to Say and
What They Did Say.
What he intended to say: Lucille, I
cannot tell you how I have waited,
how I have longed for this moment.
Do you remember. Lucille, the first
time we met? Well. I loved you from
that moment. Are you surprised? I
could not help itI felt as though
fate had drawn us together. Only tell
me, darling, that some of my love is
returned. There must be hope for me
say there is! (Takes her hand.) I
love youlove you more than words
can tell. All I ask is that for the re
mainder of my life I may be your
willing slave. All I desire is your hap
piness. Tell me, sweetheart, that my
love is reciprocated. Will you be
mine? (Kisses her.) Darling, at last
my happiness is complete.
What she intended to say: Why,
Jack! I did not dream of this! I have
always thought of you merely in a
friendly way. and it seems so strange
now to have you speak of love. I sup
pose I conld get used to it in time.
Yes. I might learn to love you a little
just a little. But you must really.
Jack, give me some time to readjust
myself. What! Kiss me! You sillv
boy! Well, just one.

The new minister was consulting the
organist as to the music to be sung
on his first Sunday.
"And besides the hymn tunes," said
the organist whose daily occupation
was that of plumber and iceman for
the village, "we always have two se
lections from the choir, from real
classical music', generally from one of
Handel's or Haydn's oratorios."
"Why, that is good news," said the
minister, who was no mean musician
and had a cultivated taste and ear.
"But don't you find the music rather
difficult for untrained singers?"
"Well, they aren't untrained, for I
train 'em," said the organist with some
resentment. "And. besides that, where
the music's difficult I alter it for 'em.
I strike out all the cadenzas and trills
and things of that kind, and where the
tune runs too low or too high 1 either
set it up or down an octave, or if I
can't do that just have 'em quit sing
ing, and I put on the vox humana stop
and play the tune till it gets into their
range again. It's easy enough when
you know how to do it."
The Steady Man.
We'd lik to write a little rhyme
about the steady man, who keeps on
pegging all the time and does the best
he can the man who early goes to
work and doesn't get home late, who
never tries to shirk in order to be
great. There are some fellows who
will try to do their business tricks
and have a finger in the pie of city
politics. They try to put on lots of
style and play a heavy role, and in a
little bit o' while you find them in a
hole. 1 like the man of steady pace:
his system I admire. He has no wild
desire to place more irons in the fire!

Love must be cultivated and can be
increased by judicious culture, as wild
fruits may double their bearing under
the hand of a gardener, and love can
dwindle and die out of neglect, as
choice flower seeds planted in poor
soil dwindle and grow single.Harriet

Ernest H. Sellhorn returned on Fri
day from Medicine Hat, where he is
interested in a brickyard. It appears
that he engaged in an altercation

Ernest arrived here.
Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Sfceeves arrived

getting to the stables.

A. Jack came down from Camp
Bullis, in the northern wilds, yester
day morning. When Charley left
there the boys had killed nine deer
Andy Bullis bringing down the first.
Andy has mighty keen sight for a
man of his age and his aim is ac

know, but now that snow has fallen
they will probably make an attempt to
kill the limit before they return.
Just as soon as there is money
available the county road running
south from Cove should be completed.
There ought to be a first-class straight
main thoroughfare clear through
from the lake to the southern border
of the county. With this end in view
the several towns should co-operate
with the county authorities. A good
beginning has been made and ere the
close of another year we hope to see

According^to the Independent-Press
a Spring Vale farmer claims to have
saved three dollars^by taking a grist
of wheat to the flour mill at Sunrise
in preference to patronizing either the
Cambridge or Princeton mills 29 miles
nearer his home. The farmer in
question it appears lost his fur coat
and cap on the trip to Sunrise. If the
truth were known that Spring Vale

and perhaps better at either Cam
