Ought to Paint.
I ought to have painted last year,
but I hated to pay $2.25 a gallon.
I've got to paint this year; it'll
take a little more paint; ? suppose
1 gallon in 7 0; and a little more
work, I suppose 1 day in 10.
My job would have cost last year
about $52.50; il is going to cost
this year ?57.75.
$0.25. I suppose it'll bethe s._.e
again, if I wait again.
What if paint goes down to $2 a
gallon? $2.50 on the job!
I shan't wait; what a fool I was!

pany sells it.

farm produce. Parties wishing space
will notify thy manager.
The participants in the tourna

There will be three prizes.

"I* The Young Mon Safe?"
The above ?B the text of last Sun
day's sermon in the Presbyterian
church by the Rev. E. C. Bailey.
Having given the history of Da
vid the father, and Absalom, the
?on,whose life depicted in the down
fall, had promised such a bright
future, the speaker proceeded to
show when a young woman and
young man is not safe, but in
great danger. He showed that Da
vid was truly penitent of his sins,
but penitence did not save him from
suffering the consequencss of the
sins of his youth; for he reaped an
harvest of sorrow in the life of his
favorite child, Absalom. No one
can read the 18th chapter of 2nd
Samuel said he, without being
solemnly impressed with the fact
that fathers and mothers reap in
their children what they sowed in
their youth; and that we would all
meet our lives either in this world
or in the next. He said that all of
the sorrows of life were insignifi
cant compared with the disgrace
brought upon us by ourohildren;
that there were many forces to drag
the youth of the land into hell; that
the ambition of a bad person was to
get others on their level; and that
to such persons nothing is sacred.
He said David was anxious about
this child because he knew what
thia child inherited from the pa
rents, and was somewhat anticipat
ing trouble, as a result* "Men do
not gather grapes of thorns" nei
ther can a Godless parent expect
good ohildren, without the interpo
sition of grace. Many parents
of this county will repeat
the sad wail of David for a way
Prof. Prescott, of the University of j
Michigan, testified before the Pure j
Food Committee of Congress, that the
acid of grapes held highest rank as an j
article of food and he regarded the re- |
suits from baking with cream of tartar j
baking powder as favorable to health, j
Royal is the only Baking Powder made
from Royal Crape Cream of Tartar*
anity is a diploma signifying that
we are in the school of Christ.
The speaker discussed with ear
nestness, pro and con, the following
topics, showing the innooenoy and
the guilt connected with them;
namely, the old and the new card
party; the old and the new dance;
the old and the new home party;

ward child; but tears and anguish
?annot blot out the past. Now,
said the speaker, when is a young
person safe? I do not answer this in
a professional way, when I say,
Christianity alone can secure the
safety of the child. Morality is only
a certificate that denotes proficien
cy along some lines, while Christi
the old and the new conventions;
the old and the new home. He
solemnly warned parents not to al
low their children to attend, even
religious conventions alone; saying
that in these days many crimes are
committed in the name of rtligion.
He said, the youth are not safe in
a godless home where the Bible
is closed and the voice of prayer
never heard. They are not free from
danger in some house parties; no*
free from danger visiting the homes
of people in the summer who have
written all over them interrogation
marks, and in some instances, ex
clamations of horror that a parent
would allow his or her child to
visit such a "staying place." Un
readable books fill i the world,
and bad company are dragging our
youth to the bad. One of the great
curses of the age is following the
fashiwns, wnich are hatched in the
lowest place on the face of the
globe. He touched both on the style
and quantity of the dress of the
age; the masoulined women, said
he, is one of the curses of this age.
Sow it said he, but it will come
back with doable measure at that
period of life when most you need
rest and comfort. The church was
crowded and the attention undivid
ed as the congregation breathed
amen in many places. There are
those who will differ with the
speaker upon certain points, doubt
less, but the message was freighted
with meaning to those who must
live in their children.
Standing by the entrance of a
large estate in the suburbs of Glas
gow are two huge dogs carved out
of granite. An Englishman, going
by in a hack, thought he would
have some fun with the Scotch
"How often, Jaok, do they feed
those two big dogs?"
"Whenever they bark, sir," was
the straight-faced reply.
