A WORD FOR CRANKS.
UlstSiiction net ween a Crank an a
Cranks my son Tho world fct full of them.
What would we do nereit not for tbe cranks!
How slowly the tired old world would move,
did not tho cranks keep it rushing along.
Columbus was a crank on tbo subject of,
American discovtry and circumnavigation,
and at last he met the fate of most
wants, wa3 thrown into prison,
and died m poverty nnd disgrace.
Greatly -cncratl now? (5h, yes, Te-lemachus,
we usually citeetu a crank most profoundly
after we starve hhn to death. Harvey was a
crank On tho subject of the circulation of the
blood; Galileo was en astronomical crank;
Fulton was a crank on the subject of steam
navigation; Mori was a telegraph crank; all
the old abolitionists wero cranks. Tha
1'iigrim fathers wero cranks; John Bunyan
w-as a crank; any man who doesn't think as
y ou do, my son, Is a crank.
And by and by, the crank you despise will
liav o his name in ev ery man's mouth, and a
half completed monument to his memory
crumbling down in a dozen cities, white no
body outside of your native villago will know
that you ever lived. Deal gently -with the
crank, my boy. Of course, somo cranks are
crankier than others, but do you be very slow
to sneer nt a man becnuw he knows only one
thing and you can't understand him. A
crank, Telemachus, is n thing that turns
something, it makes the wheels go round, it
insures progress. True, it turns the same
wheel all the time, and it can't do anything
else, but that's what kecro the ship going
i be thing tliatgoes in for variety, versa
tility, that changes its position a hundred
times a day, that is no crank; that is tbo
weather vane, my son. What? You never
theless thank heaven you aie not a crank!
Don't do tliat, my son. Maybe you couldn't
bo a crunk, if j-cuwould. Heaven Is not very
partitukir when it wants a weather vane;
almost any man will do for that. But when
it wants a crank, my boy, it looks about
very carefullj- for tho best man in tho com
tmitiitv. Before you thank heaven that you
nre not a crank, examine yourself carefully,
and see wliat is tho great deficiency that de
bais you Sruiu Euch an election.

"Ultunnttdv- it make 111 all sick who stand
in the center of a network of delicate rela

The currents of kindness are forced

my look awl shrink front it I have no sweet
word for baby, who conies to me, all laugh

sympathy, a gay word and n kiss. In such

perhaps a shako cf "some child's naughty

"Good morning, Dencon ; you walk off aa
sjiry as 11 tioy, for all you are bo old."
"'.Vliy, Liwlilesa you, I can't help it; lean
sec 90 well with my new spectacles It appea.ru
to iutiiewllf!uine I actnally feel twenty
years jonnger, ami I have bad them only a
hort time. -You see, I Hid not buy when Dr.
Yost first came to Wichita ; I thought I would
just wait and let some others try. Iliad paid
out so much money for spectacles, anil my eyea
were getting poorer and poorer all the time,
that Iliad almnt despaired or ever getting an -tiling
that would stay the dreadful loss of eight.
Hut when I came to see and talk with my neigh
bors, nud with jieople from other parts of the
country who had used Dr. Tost'a Improved
lenien (some of them for years), I concluded I
would try It onre more, and I am frank to con
fess they are far ahead of my expectations
Oh, jes, it's a hard country on eyesight. All
tlii western prairie country Is much harder on
on the eyes than the eastern states, and come to
think of it, it Is as much out of place to try to
use the old style or eiicct&cles here In Kansas as
It would be to try to farm with the old style of
farming tools, and, sir, I don't hesitate to say
that the man that wont go to Dr. Yoit and be
fitted with a pair of his improved lenses ought
to have his self-binder and Improved plow
taken from him, and be compelled to cut bis
trrnlnwlth the old hand sickle and plow with
the wonden-monldhoard plow."
It Is Just as Important to use Improved lenses
properly lltted. In order to save eyesight, as it
istonse theselMiinder to save grain In this
No use talking, nothing short of Hr. Yost's
Improved spectacles will save the vision in this
day and age.
