The boastful and braggadocio
manner in which a woman criminal
in New York court exposed the
names of her parents and their
whereabouts serves as an example
of what so-called "city life" will
do for young girls who leave,
probably, the best regulated homes
and who have been reared by chris
tian parents or guardians. Who
will doubt but that' this same
young woman who claims that her
parents now live in Jefferson City
when a child was led to church
and Sunday school and was taught
to do only that which was pure
and noble, and who when she left
home was pure and noble, but she
went to the city to live and to re
hearse the story of her life is but
to retell the experiences of thou
sands of once pure, innocent char
acters who have been entrapped by
taking just a sip of wine in some
city parlor and finally a glass after
the theatre and so on until all re
spect for self is gone and home
training is forgotten, and soon a
wretched, wrecked, disgraced, way
ward individual is all that is left
of a once pure character. "lis a
sad, sad story, but a true one.
Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, of Ells
worth, Kansas, made a short visit
here last week to her uncles, John
and Henry Branhatn. She was
born near Auxvasse and left there
when quite young during the war
with her father, Mr. Alex Brown.
Mr. Brown is a brother to Mr.
Calvin McMahan, of Fulton, who
is also well known in Auxvasse.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith own quite a
nice home in Kansas. She left
here to visit her son and aunt in
Blind Boone's Home Burned.
The old home of Blind Boone
was destroyed by fire in Warrens
burg last Tuesday night. Mr.
Boone had been to Warrensburg
on a visit and the house caught on
fire while his relatives were at the
station with him. All the contents
of the house were destroyed.
Probably the largest can factory
in the world is that of the Stand
ard Oil Company at Long Island
City, at which 70,000 five-gallon
cans are made from Welsh tin
each day for export(kerosene trade.
Three men have made 24,000 cans
in one day.
Are of Exactly the' Same Slie All tta
The circus of the present day
differs in many ways from that of
50 years ago, but there is' no change
in the ring. Go where you will
from China to Pern, from the
Caucasus to the Desert of Sahara
you will find the ring always of the
same diameter, 42 feet 9 inches,
and made in the same way.
There is a reason for this that
not many persons stop to think
about, says the Detroit Free Press.
Circus riders and circus horses go
all over the world j they belong to
no one country, and they must
have the same ring wherever they
go, or fail in their performance.
Rider and horses are both
trained to the exaot angle of in
clination towards the center that
is required by a radius of 21 feet
4j4 inches, and any variation
would be like a speaker losing his
recollection in the middle of a
memorized oration. And it is the
same with the speed of the horse,
which, soon after starting, settles
down to a steady rate, and never
varies until the act is finished.
Not only must the ring have al
ways the same diameter, but the
inner circumference must be graded
at a level to correspond exactly
with the inclination produced by
the radius and the speed. The
horse is so well trained that he
moves as steadily as the hands of
a clock, but as an additional pre
caution a strap holds his head so
that a certain pace is maintained.

The Modern Girl.
The girl had spent two years at
a fashionable school, and had cost
her father about $600 a year, which
was hard to raise. She planned a
big summer vocation which was to
call for lots of fine clothes and
other expensive luxuries, and then,
she told her dad that she would
undertake a special course in
"pschychology, sociology, bib "
The old man stopped her right
there and said :
"Now, see here, girl, we've put
up with this sort of thing nigh
onto two years, and we've had
enough. I've no doubt you've
done yourself proud after a fash
ion ; but mother and me has con
cluded that you'll stop at home,
let her have a bit of rest, and that
you'll take up roastology, biology,
stitchology, darnology, washology
and general domesticology and
you'd best begin tomorrow, girl,
by getting dinner ready for dad."
FOLLOWING THE BAND.
Life was a joy when I was a boy,
In the days of long ago,
When eye and ear could see and
The things it was good to know,
But the kind old earth, once glad
And pleasures high and grand,
Seems" stale and tame since I be
Too big to follow the band.
Yet I dare say earth holds today
About as much or more
Of joy and cheer, right now and
Than ever it held before,
But by our pride we're now denied
God's gifts on every hand ;
We've grown too proud to follow
Too big to follow the band.
I'd like to stray in a careless way
Through the broad green fields
And wander back along life's
To the blissful springs of truth.
I'd like to trade my woes, self
And the cures that come to men
For the keen delight of a boy's
To follow the band again.
Like the uncouth reptile that
infests the whole world, the equal
ly poisonous demon, Liquor,
sneaks about in high grass by life's
highways, and inflicts its ghastly
wounds in every accessible human
foot, causing sorrows that are
indescribable. But why should
men voluntarily be the prey of
this latter enemy, when they, nine
times out of ten, would slay a
snake upon the slight provocation
of having unintentionally "show
ed itself I" This is plainly a weak
ness, this conquering of ono vile
thing and submitting to another
worse one, and any man in that
sad plight is to be pitied. It is
the duty of those net subjected to
this misfortune, to help the broth
er who is ; give kind aid and lay
bare the happiness of a temperate
life as it really is don't color it
for the sake of inducement, for it
leads to the resuming of the habit

the reward was not so golden as it
A successtul method of destroy
ing the water hyacinth (lily pad),
which seriously obstruct naviga
tion in southern rivers, has been
tried on the St. Johns, where some
wharves have been abandoned be
cause of it. A boat filled with a
laboratory and force pump sprays
a swath ninety feet wide with a
chemical which causes them to die
to the roots.
The best calculation that can be
made shows that the average nura
ber of children to the white native
family a century ago in the United
States was more than six ; in 1830
it had fallen to less than five ; in
1860 to less than four; in 1872 to
less than three ; in 1900, among the.

As long as Brazil continues to
grow 15,500,000 bags of coffee,
which was nearly the amount of
her last years' product and about
the estimated amount of the
world's consumption, there is no
probability that coffee will advance
. A vacant mind is open to all
suggestions, as the hollow moun
tain returns echoes all sounds.
When the last trump sounds,
some women will ask Gabriel to

The error of one moment, be
comes the sorrow of a whole life
time. He who pursues the stag, regards
not the hares.
