The Ladies' World.
The Ladies' World for January

of contents and the promise of
another very interesting year.
The remarkable articles on The

running for a few months, are

The Work of the Y. M. C. A. a
really wonderful work of saving
goes on quietly, persistently and
effectively under the wise guid
ance ot the managers of these
institutions. Such articles as
these are well worth while. Flor
ence Morse Kingsley's story ot
Francesca moves rapidly, and
brings the family to the gate of
the new world, where the new
home is to be made. The plot
thickens snd there is a hint of
tragedy in the future chapters.
We are sorry to part with A Mel
ody in Silver, which is one of the
prettiest novelettes we have read
for a long time, but the ending
was very satisfactory. The short

Long; to be Remembered.
The sons, daughters, grand
children, and invited guests of
Mrs. Elizabeth Carnell, of Dott,
will not soon forget tho Christ
mas day just past. For years it
has been the custom of the family
to gather at the old home-stead
one day in each year, and Christ
mas day was chosen for this
year. Of course, the dinner was
one ot the main features of the
occasion, and it was truly a credit
to the culinary skill of Mrs. Car
nell and her daughters. Turkey,
with all the concomitants, chick
eL, and all that goes to make up a
most excellent Christmas dinner,
was served. The decorations of
the ptrlor and dining room were
all in keeping with the day and
the beautiful tree, standing in
one corner of the parlor was sim
ply a delight to the little children
Numerous gifts were given and
received, and as we saw the gifts
presented to our hostess among
them a reclining Morris chair, a
black dress pattern, a beautiful
set of furs including a fur hood,
hand painted china and Japanese
ware and innumerable smaller
gifts, we thought that, that lady
could not question the devotion
of her children.
Those present to enjoy the day were:
James ft. Sharpe, wife (Laura) and
four children Thurman, Verdle, Ada
and Stanley; Jas. A. Truax, wife
(Mollle) and daughters, Floye and
Madeline; John Hess, wife (Florence)
and daughter, Thelma; John Carnell
and wife; Wm. Carnell wife and chil
dren, Pearl, Hazel, Delia, Frank and
Blanche; Bert Carnell, Miss Maye
Carnell, a grand-daughter and our
enterprising merchant Samuel M.
Carnell. The friends invited were
Mrs. Maria Spencer, Rev. Jesse
Kauffman wife and little daughter
Alberta; D. Garland, wife and son
Maoshall; Milton B. Hill, wife and
daughters, Kittle and Vivian; Misses
Belle Mellott and Nannie Spencer,
Roy Rice of Union and Nathan Truax
of Pleasnt Ridge.
Beware of Ointmonts for Catarrh that
as mercury will surely destroy
the sense of smell and completely
derange the whole system when
entering-it through the mucous
surfaces. Such articles should
never be used except on prescnp
tions from reputable physicians,
as the damage they will do is ten
fold to the good you can possibly
derive from them. Hall's Ca
tarrh Care, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O.,
contains no mercury, and is taken
internally, acting directly upon
the blood and mucous surface's of
the system. In buying Hall's
Catarrh Cure be sure you get the
genuine. It is taken internally

Clay Charlton, of Dawson City,
Can., has a three months' leave
of absence and is visiting bis fath
er, Wm. IL Charlton, at War fords
burg, and other friends and rela
tives in this county. As it takes
about fifty-four days on the road
to make the round trip, Mr.
Charlton does not have a big lot
of time to spend at home. He is
far enough north to be in the
"land of the midnight sun" and
as at this time of the year the sun
is down south on a vacation,
leaving Dawson City in midnight
darkness during twenty-four
hours each day, Mr. Charlton
thought it a good time to come
down south on a vacation, too.

W WHY HE WAS BASHFUL.
Asked Questions About Topeka That
Ware Not Tactful.
A Hutchinson girl declare this
story to be true. She was visiting at
a small Kansas town recently, and
while there her hostess gave a party
In her honor, and Invited the pick of
the whole countryside. Among the
guests was a boy who had been to To
peka, so she had heard.
She had some acquaintance In To
peka and tried to draw him out. In
quiring: "How did you like Topekaf
The young fellow blushed and
looked down before he murmured:
"Oh, pretty well.-
"Do you know many people there V
she continued, trying to get him In
terested, and attributing his reticence
"Why, not many," he said, tagging
at his collar, as If It were strangling
"I suppose you went to the park
while you were there T" she asked.
"No," he replied. "I did not attend
aay of the affairs at the park.
She talked about other things, and
later, when an opportunity came,
asked the hostess why that boy had
been so reticent about talking of To
peka. The hostess threw up her
"We simply had to Invite him," she
replied. "He belongs to a good fam
ily. As a matter of fact, he has Just
returned from Topeka, where be has
been la the reform school!"

"Nettle," cried the enamored young
man, "I love you, and would go to the
world's end for you."
"Oh, no, you wouldn't, James," re
torted the sweet girl graduate. "The

m.7 "but what I meant was that I'd
do anything to please you. Ah, dear
est, If you knew the aching void"
"Now I am surprised, James," In
terrupted the s. g. g. "Nature abhors'
a vacuum, and there Is no such thing
as a void; but admitting that there
could be such a thing, how could tho
void you speak of be void If there was
an ache In it?"
"Oh, well," rejoined the young man.
"at least I've got cash and property
amounting to nearly $100,000, and I
want you to be my wife. So, there!"
"James," rejoined the fair one with
out a moment's hesitation, "since you
put It la that light, I haven't the heart
to refuse you. Let the wedding bells
ring without unnecessary delay."
An Old Fable.
"Metaphysics," said Bishop Castle, of
Oregon, at a dinner In Philomath, "la
a subject that always makes on think
of the oat and the owl.
"A cat, you know, once set forth la
quest of happiness. She wandered up,
she waadered down; she questioned
this animal and she questioned that,
Finally, wrapped In meditation la a
tree, she perceived aa owl.
" 'Owl!' said the cat. 'tell ma, most
wise bird, where happiness Is to be
"In meditation,' the owl replied.
'Meditation alone Is the true secret
"'But,' said the cat, 'on what sub
Ject am I to meditate T
" 'On the subject,' the owl answered,
'which has occupied the race of owls
since the beginning of time namely:
Which came first, the owl or the egg;
(or, while the owl comes from the egg,
to also does the egg come from the
owl!'" Seattle Pout-Intelligencer.
Using the Drag,
The split log drag. If used correct
ly, will round the road, but care
should be taken not to make the an
gle too steep, as It Is only necessary
to have Just slope enough to cause
tho water to flow through the ditches
rather than through the middle of tho
road. If too long a time elapses after
tho rains before split-log drag Is used
so that the roads become thoroughly
dried out, tho efficiency of tho drag
Is largely decreased.

WASHINGTON, x. c.
Jackson Uixson and wife, who
had been visiting relatives and
friends in Bethel township, have
returned to their home at Pleas
ant Hill, O. They were accom
panied to their Ohio home by
Mrs. Ilixson's mother, Mrs. S.
Jane Hill. Mrs. Hill had been in
frail health for some time, but
word has been received stating
that she stood the trip very well.
It was Mr. Ilixson's first visit to
Fulton county for twenty-six
years, and he enjoyed the stay
very much, and his old friends
were glad to see him again.
MUDDY ROADS ARE EXPENSIVE.
General Co-operation Among Farmers
Needed to Secure Results.
One thing needed In the country is
more general co-operation among
farmers to accomplish results which
cannot be done single-handed. Every
farmer In the country would approve
of good roads, especially at this sea
son of the year, when there Is no bot
tom In some localities. But compara
tively few farmers are willing to dig
down In their pockets and pull up the
necessary cash with which to pay for
these good roads. There la a unani
mous howl for hard roads, but no
funds are available with which to
build them. Owners In the big cities
have to pay for the pavement In front
of their property, even though they
have no vehicles of any sort to wear
them out Farmers, of course, are not
willing to stand a slmlllar expense,
hut It does seem that some system of
local taxation could be devised that
would be fair and Just to all. Cost
of material is not great, but hauling
and putting It down properly Is the
sticker. The cost of transportation
has been figured out as follows:
By sea freights, one-tenth of on
eent per ton per mile.
By railroads, one cent per ton per
By good roads, seven cents per too
By ordinary country roads, 25 cents
per ton per mile.
Ninety per cent of every load by
steamship, railroad or express must
be carried by wagon or truck over a
highway. It costs the farmers of tho
United States nearly three times more
than those of Europe to market aa
equal tonnage of farm products.
