The St. Cloud Times and Journal-

Times is a Democratic paper.

in Mr. Honeywell's line. Guess he
could mince them alright, hut he

is not necessary in Bemidji.
Honeywell didn't kill anybody in
Bemidji with his "Kill or Cure" ser-

The Preacher's Hard Lot.
The preacher has a hard time. If
his hair is gray, he is old.- If he is a*
young man, he hasn't had experience.
If he has ten children he has too
many, says an exchange. If he has
none, he should have, and isn't set
ting a good example. If his wife sings
in the choir she is butting in. If she
doesn't she isn't interested in her
husband's work. If the preacher
reads from notes, he is a bore. If he
speaks extemporaneously, he is not
deep enough. If he stays at home in
his study, he doesn't mix enough with
the people. If he is seen around on
the streets, ought to be home get
ting up one good sermon. If he calls
on some very poor family, he isn't
Bhowing good judgment, and is play
ing to the grandstand. If he calls at
theliome of the rich, h is an aristo
crat. Whatever, he does, someone
could have told him how to do better.
He has a fine time living off donations
that never come in and promises that
never-mature. Next to being an edi-
tor, it is an awfttl life.
Our Haughty Crest*.
The feathers of the day are not suit

A lady who has one of the new

her way of getting around rather tenv
If she only had to lower her
haughty crest and butt into her car
like a goat at a cat, it would be only
temporary inconvenience. Once in,
the plume is again jn the way of the
roof, and must either be injured or
Its wearer's head must be bowed as if
in grief for the whole of the jour*
Holes could, no doubt, be. made in
the top of cars for hat trimmings to
go through in fine weather. These
might be regarded in the light of roof
gradens or roof feather farms, and
would surely enhance the appearance
of covered cars.

Says Sage and Sulphur Darkens Hair
Beautifully and Ends
Hair that loses its color and lustre,
or when it fades truns gray, dull and
lifeless is caused by a lack of sulphur
in the hair, says a well-known local
pharmacist. Our grandmother made
up a mixture of Sage Tea and Sul
phur to keep her lock of hair dark
and beautiful and even today this
simple preparation has no equal. Mil

value that even color, that beauti
ful dark shade of hair which is so
attractive use only Sage Tea and

A smoking volcano very often blows

these rings are five or six hundred
feet across. In both cases the "smoke"
consist of a cloud of fine particles
which show the existence of a vortex
