a gentleman in the United Stales
better fitted for this honorable and
responsible position lie was born
orid reared on a farm in Ralls
county. He is not only a theoreti
cal but a practical farmer and is
pre-eminently fitted for the position
He is a graduate of the Missouri
f tate university, a profound schol
ar and a pleasant gentleman. Be
cause of his special fitness he was
unanimously elected dean of the
Kansas Agricultural college some
three years ago after having spent
several years in the agricultural de
partment of Missouri at Columbia.
The Columbia Times has the follow-1
ing to say concerning him:
"Columbia friends of Dean H. J
Waters, of the Kansas Agricultural
college, formerly of the Missouri
College of Agriculture, are much in
terested in the rumor that the dean
is to become a member of Presi-'ient-elcct
Wilson's cabinet in the
capacity of secretary of agriculture
the position now so ably filled by
Secretary James Wilson.
"Persistent efforts on the part of
over zealous newspaper correspond-
ants have failed to elicit anything
tangible from President-elect Wil
son as to the probable make-up of
his cabinet, there appears to be
some ground for the rumor now go- j
ing m favor of Dean Waters.
"When Governor Wilson toured
Kansas during the oampaign a few
weeks ago. he arranged by wire for !
a conference with Dean Waters at j
Manhattan. The conference took!
place but just what Governor Wil- i
son had to say to Dean Waters,
even newspaper sleuths were una
ble to ascertain. The fact that
there was a long private conference
however, is known to Dean Waters'
friends, who regard it as having
"Dean Waters has the reputation
of being one of the mosr capable

Another Minister's Experience.
Macon, Mo., Nov. 9. 1912.
I was interested in reading in
your issue of November 7 an arti
cle entitled "The Price of Wed
dings." The following amusing incident
happened during the early ministry
of my brother, when he was a pas

A couple came to the parsonage
one day to be married. My broth
er asked the young man if he had
his license. Taking two envelopes j
from his pocket he said: "Yes, par
son, but I will have to see which j
oiie I want to use." After looking
over the two licenses he handed
"the parson" the proper one. As
that was a strange affair my broth
er asked the young man after the
ceremony why he had gotten two
licenses. The astonishing reply
was: "Well, parson, I came to town
this morning expecting to marry a
certain gal. I got my license and
went for the gal but she refused
to have me. I was determined to
get married so I hunted up another
gal and then had to go get another
As they were leaving, the man

The Value of Borax.
Borax is an excellent washing
powder. The women of Belgium
and Holland are noted for their
snowy linen, and they ascribe this j
desired result to the use of borax
a handful to ten gallons of water.
Borax, being a neutral salt, does
not injure the most delicate fabric.
Water in which borax has been dis
solved is excellent to wash all kinds
of lace, also all sorts of woolen
goods, flannel, cashmere and blank- s
ets. If red tablecloths are washed
with borax instead of soap, they
will not fade. Starch which is made
by using a teaspoonful of borax and
two tablespoonfuls of starch adds
an extra gloss to the clothing. Rins
ing children's garments in borax
water is said to make them fireproof-that
is, if the clothing
catches fire, it will only smolder. A
little borax put in the water with
which windows are washed will
help to clean them more easily. It
is also good for oilcloths. If moths
infest the furniture, they can be re
moved by dusting the crevices with
powdered borax. Borax sprinkled
on clothing and furs which are kept
air-tight is a preventive of moths.
Silver is easily cleaned by immers
ing in strong borax water for sever

Washing out the mouth with it
makes the breath purer and sweet
er. It cleanses the hair, but only a
very little should be used, as it
makes the scalp dry. The hair
should also be thoroughly rinsed
afterwards in clean water. Borax
curd soap is very convenient in the
household. It is made as follows:
Dissolve three ounces of borax in
two quarts of warm water, add to
this two pounds of best yellow soap,
sliced fine; stir all together in a jar,
and set in a warm place until all is
melted, stirring occasionally. When
it is cool it will form a jelly; one
tablespoonful will make a strong
lather in a gallon of water. Ex.
