Keeping House for Comfort.
Ho was wIbo who wrote; "Half
tho sting of poverty or of small
means Is gone when ono keeps houso
for one's own comfort, and not for
tho comment of one's own neighbors.
Deny it as wo will, r-w of ua have
tho moral force to sot up a standard
of our own, based upon our own In
comes and our own inrtlcular home
environments. Wo commit the folly
of regulating our expenses by tho In
come of como ono elso. It tho

expensive lace curtains, wo aro dis

mindful of what our neighbors will
think about many things that should
not concern them In tho least. We
have no standard of our own. Our
dress and even our tables must be
regulated by tho standard of others.
We have no. tho coumso nor the
independonco to bo Indifferent to the
comment of our neighbors. Tills form,
of moral cowardice Is causing many
families In Hickman to live beyond
their Incomes. They can faco debt,
and forfeit their self-respect easier
than they can faco tho unfavorable
comment of their friends and neigh
bors. Tho extent to which tills imi
tation of others is carried would bo
ludicrous, but H did not bring so
much unhnpplness In Its train. It Is
frequently tho direct cause of dis
cord and discontent and debt that
havo driven hnpplnoas from the family
hearthstone. Lot us havo a standard
of our own, based upon our own need
and lot us cheerfully nml bravely ad
hero to this standard, heedless of
thnt dreadful bugbear: "What will
tho neighbors say?"
"Where Shall I draw tho line?"

licitous for his boy's future. Glvo

Meddlesome persons who aro con
tinually prying Into other people's af-
iaint ami carrying tales hotween ac
quaintances and frlenda create a great
deal of mischief and are best content
ed when thoy can spread scandal. It
hoenw inoro natural for them to speak
HI of a person than to utter words
of praise, and their habit of gossip
ing becomes so fixed that they can
talk scandals almost unconsciously.

for friends and acquaintances, oven
If not wholly deserved, as it Is to
speak ill of them, and the effect on
the community Is always beneficial
In a general way. Scandal gathers as
it travels by word or mouth and can
novcr bo recalled when once In circu
Intion. Try speaking weil of every
one and see what a change it will
mako In your own happiness as (n
the welfare of others.
If you would gather up all tender
memories, all tho lights and shades
of tho heart, all banquetlngs and re

and conjugal affections and you had
only Just four letters with which to

length and breadth and magnitude
and oternlty of meaning, you would,

For Mens all-wool

business, I find that I have a larger stock of mens suits

on my entire line, consisting of the celebrated all-wool
Schwab line in all the new 1912 styles, colors and fabrics.

home-loving. And when a man asks
woman to share his life, it is usually
taken as a gentlo hint that he wants
her to mako him a home and take a
sort of general oversight of his affair
and a special oversight of himself.
He likes to know that she does
things for him Just for tho reabon
that she loves him, and is interested
in him and his woll-belng. He loves
his home inoro If there Is some im
