thing to 1)0 proud of In ono sense of the

shows that to win a prize Is about the
worst thing that can happen to a lot of
musicians. Befoie the world's fair, tho
"Electric City" was noted as the head
quarters for gigantic musical enterprises

prominent feature. Since winning the $',,

The Thanksgiving number of the
Christian Advocate is one of the best

ing: SHOULD FOOT BALL BE "OUT
LAWED?" "Eenths, distortions, dislocations,
disllguratlons, fractures, nnd sprains
are some of Its fruits. Crush,
ing, stamping, kicking, nnd many oth
er fotms of biutallty attend It; but all
athletic games In which mnny take
part nnd competition is sharp, nro
liable to similar evils. What a record
ot Injuiy nnd death Is charged up to
blcyllng Football Is a very old game;
as pluyed by the students of tluee or
more decades since, theie were plenty
of minor huits, but few serious acci
dents. That veiy young, untrained,
overgrown, or feeble men, or thoe un
accustomed to geneial cxeiclse, or
liable to any constitutional weakness
of disease, especially of lungs or heart,
should play the game only with child
ren, If at all. Is obvious. That the
stiong and well should bo forbidden
by civil law to do so, Is not necessary.
Every college or university should
have a medical or competent physical
director, nnd non should bo allowed
to play football In match games with
out a permit from htm. Intercollegiate
games should not bo allowed where
the method of play Is recklessly bru
tal. Pieparatoiy schools should be
mote carefully supervised than many
of them aio.
Those playeis who kill or malm
should be held accountable for man
slaughter, assault, or civil damages;
but that It should be made a misde
meanor to play football seems to In
dicate a tendency, not only to peterna
llsm, but to giand-pnternalism, In

Ono evening as I walked with Flo
Along the lane where lilies grow,
She cried In fear: "Whut enn this
I've loit my heart. O, havo you seen
It lying nnywhete about?
I only Just now found It out.
I've lost It since you came, I know.
You've btolen It! Your eyes say so!"
I said: "Now don't be cross, my dear.
Though 1'vo your heart, yet never fear,
For, since I havo no need of two,
I'll glvo you mine. Will not that do?"
A smile shone In her tearful eyes,
A rainbow over stormy skies.
Sho answered: "Since I must confess"
Tho rest I cannot tell you. Guess!

Publisher Gazette Restored to Health

The Haverhill Gazette, now In the

Gentlemen: It Is with great pleas
ui e that I bear testlmon) to the bene
ficial results which almost Invariably
follow the use of th'at king of nil rem
edies Paine's celery compound. As a
tonic, free from deleterious matciials,
it has, to my way of thinking, no equal.
This remedy Is positive Jmon to all
nerve-vvtetked men of business. I un
hesitatingly commend it to all persons
who aie, as I was, thoroughly worn
out. Veiy tiuly yours,

Of tho Sort Which Was round in Ore
gon When She Was Young and Un
fettered. From the Pendleton East Oregonlan.
There wasn't any pai titular excite
ment over the hanging qf the man
pointed out and ai tested at Big Bend
as the chap who stole a pack mule from
Col. White's camp, over on Fish river.
One of White's men, who was over af
ter bacon , happened to meet the
stranger, nnd he went to Redfern,
piesldent of tho vigilance committee,
"Jim, Is It a good day for a hanging?"
"Wall, toleiablv fn'i," leplled Jim.
"The kuss w ho stole our pack mewl
Is dovv n In the tin front saloon."
"I see. And jou want him hung?"
"I don't kcer no great shakes about
It myself, but I reckon the Kurnel
would be pleased."
"I'm willing to obleege Col. White,
as he's n good friend of mine: but do
you think the critter down thur has
any objecshuns to bein' hung?"
"Ho don't look like a man who'd
kick about It. 'Pears moie like a critter
who'd be glad to bo off the ulrth."
"Wall, we'll take chances on him,"
said Jim, and ho went to his shanty
and got a rope und asked eight or ten
of the boys to go along. When the
crowd reached tho tin front saloon, the
stranger was Just coming out.
"Say, we want )ou," said Redfern.
"Goln to hang )o.u."
"Fur stealln' Kuincl Whites' pack
"Wall, fire away."
He was escorted to a tree whereon a
dozen moi e men had been duly hanged,
and, lifted up on an empty whisky bar
tel, the noose was soon placed over his
"Want to say anything?" asked Jim
as all was ready.
"Then let 'er go."
An hour later, White's man, who had
staited for home, returned to hunt up
Mr. Redfem and say.
"Look-a-yere' Jim, that feller didn't
stenl our mow I,"
"No. They cot tho feller and the
vmevvl out at Clay City, nnd hung him
this moinln'. I thought this was tho
feller, but I must hev bin mistook."
"I'see. Wall, he's bin hung and hur
led, and we can't help him nnv now.
We'll Jest let tho next one off, to even
up things. My compliments to tho Kur
nel, and tell h!m I shall nlwa)a stand
ready to obleege him."
