Old People Die PeriodicaSIy.
For many years I have noticed th?t
old people die periodically. - Some
years very few old people die, and
at times quite a number die in a
short while. Since last March twen
ty people have died within twelve
mile s of Johnston, and eighteen of
that number were over sixty-five
years of age, nine were between
seventy and eighty two years old
when they died. Fourteen of this
number were my special friends in
my young manhood. I have lost two
sisters-in-law this year, one died
June 26th, the other July 14th.
For some time I have been taking
my bearings, down the old roads that
I used to travel when a boy. These
old roads always give one a peculiar
charm. Their associations cause us
to think of the past. So I think it a
good thing to travel these old roads,
it will be a journey worth while. At
times we must stop, go back, and
a trip down the old' roads, for they
are avenues that lead us from mam
moth mills and marts of trade to the
sound of the settler's axe and log
cabin in the clearing.
And as I begin my journey back
along the old trail with so many of
the best people that lived in those
good old days, I find that I am almost
entirely alone. And I begin to feel
lonesome, but I love to go back ovrr
these old roads that I travelled sev
enty years ago.
We travel the old road back to
where we first saw the light, where
mother first taught us how to pray,
this is where we remember our first
Christmas and Santa Claus. So many
happy associations cluster about
these old trails with dear friends that
have long since gone to their re
There are living today only about
ten, in all this section, who grew up
with me, nearly all the links are
broken in the chain.
"One by one the links are breaking,
Shorter grows my friendship chain;
But those links that are remaining
True and firm hold just the same.
As I draw them close about me,
Each one worn from holding fast,
Lovingly I press them gently;
Thinking o'er the vanished past.
Links there are so worn and bended
Like a wire of thin gold;
Almost broken frdm long holding,
Dearer still from being old.
All the links are precious metal,
All been tried and proved true,
Some have been worn since child
Some have a brilliance almost new.
My friendship chain is clasped
Long it's lain close to my breast;
As the links fall softly from it,
Closer still I draw the rest.
Thousands could not buy it from '
me, . i
Made by joy and love and pain, |
And I count myself "Croesus" .
While I own my friendship chain."

Eliot Declares Women of To
Day Dress Indecently.
Boston, Mass., Nov. 4.-The man
ners and customs of modern society
are d?teriorating because of the too
great freedom between young peo
ple, declared Dr. Charles W. Eliot,
professor of Harvard, addressing a
body of Unitarian women today. Dr.
Eliot said that the dress of the pres
ent day women would have been
characterized as indecent by the wo
men of past generations.
"When I was a boy,". Dr. Eliot
said, "no young man would dare take
a young woman out riding in a bug
gy and then begin to smoke. Those
dances held in Boston society when
champagne was used freely were |
looked at indifferently. Then look at
the way women dress as seen on Bos
ton streets. They wear clothing in
such a way that our mothers of the
past generation would have put down
as indecent. These young women
have no desire to be indecent. They
wear what they do because it is fash
ionable. Then again you see matron
ly women going along, their carriage,
the turning of their eyes and other
winning ways make them objects of
"It has been my observation that
the manners of the common average
individual are higher than the man
ners of those higher and more es
teemed in the social circles."
For a Disordered Stomach.
When the stomach fails to perform
its functions the bowels become de
ranged, the liver and the kidneys
congested. The important thing is to
restore the stomach and liver to a
healthy condition and for this pur
pose Chamberlain's Tablets are ex
cellent. Give them a trail. They only

WHAT IS GOOD?
"What is the real good?" I asked in
musing mood. ,
Order, said the law court;
Knowledge, said the school;
Truth, said the wise man;
Pleasure said the fool;
Love, said the maiden;
Beauty said the page;
Freedom said the dreamer;
Home, said the sage;
Fame, said the soldier;
Equity, said the seer.
Spake my heart full sadly;
"The answer is not here."
Then within my bosom
Softly this I heard:
"Each heart hold? the secret:
Kindness is the word."
