President Wilson's Address. j
The inaugural address of Presi
dent Wilson stands our as the most
concise, the most Intellectual, the
most intensely human specimen of
our White House literature since i
the days of Lincoln. No honest 1
man can read it without feeling his
better self grow bigger with the
added enthusiasm of punifying our
country; of uplifting humanity; of
restoring to the masses that equali-1
ty of opportunity upon which our!
liberties are founded.
ineaicuon ot tnis address re-
minds the reader of Lincoln at;
Gettyburg, There Lincoln faced a j
country being wasted by the wick- :
edness of war: here Wilson faces a
country being consumed by the
wickedness of peace, and the sal
vation Lincoln saw, is the salvation
that Wilson sees. It is not in the
power of man, nor of any man's
strong sword, but in the power
that abides in the pure and the
good of humanity. Said Lincoln
"It is for us to be here dedi-
catea 10 tne great tasK re
maining before us-that we here
highly resolve that this nation,
under God, shall have a new birth
of freedom and that government
of the people, by the people, and
for the people, shall not perish
from the earth." The closing par
agraphs of Wilson's address which
took the high water mark of earn
est literary expression, give us a
picture of the heart of our new
President that is both assuring and
edifying. The nation has been
deeply stirred, stirred by a sol
emn passion, stirred by a knowl
edge of wrong, of idesls lost, of gov
ernment too often debauched and
made an instrument of evil. The
feeling with which we face this
new age of right and opportunity
sweep across our heart-strings, like
some air out of God's own presence,
where justice and mercy are recon
ciled and the judge and the brother
"This is not a day of triumph; it
is a day of dedication. We muster
not the forces of party, but the
forces (of humanity. Men's hearts
wait upon us; men's lives hang in
the balance; men's hopes call upon
us to- say what we will do
"Who shall live up to the great
trust? Who dares fail to try? I
summon all honest men, all patriot
ic, all forward-looking men to my
side. God helping me, I will not
fail them, if they will but counsel
and sustain me."
When a President speaking thus
intimately to the people, can so in
delibly impress his sincerity upon
the hearts of his countrymen, he
does much to help dedicate the
hearts of men to a new birth of
freedom and to a new high cause

Eugene, the only child of Mr. and
Mrs. John Madden did at 10:30
Thursday. For several days he had
suffered with diphtheria which
caused his death. He was a bright,
manly HtTTeNjoy, the idol of his
father and mother, He was 9 years
old the 21st of Nov. last. He came
to earth and spent only a short
time here spreading sunshine and
happiness and then was called to
his home on high. The hours are
indeed sad to his fond parents, but
he has been called from this world
of sadness and sorrow to one where
happiness reigns supreme. The

Another Boost for Poultry.
The Poultry Department at the

oratory of the Bureau of Chemistry
heretofore located at Nashville,
Tennessee, and under the direction
of Dr. Mary E. Pennington and Pro

a large percentage ot tnis loss is
borne by the farmer and the loss is
due to the average low quality of
eggs and the consequent low prices.
One of "the first steps will be to
organize the dealers in the State to
buy eggs on a quality basis. The
elimination of bad eggs at the re
ceiving station, where it has been
tried in this State, results in an in
crease in the price of eggs of three
cents per dozen This means that
the producer of poor eggs pays the
penalty and the producer -of good
eggs reaps the reward. It is only
on this basis that the egg industry
in Missouri can approach it possi
bilities and Missouri is to be con
gratulated on having the laboratory
within its boundaries.

The Selling of a Dog
A very beautiful and pathetic
story comes to us from the neigh
; hood of Crauston, where Oliver S.
Johnson of Tipton was conducting,
ja sale. A beautiful Scotch collie
, dog had been taking interest in the
j procedure of the sale and was him-
self put on the block for sale. Some
! one had bid $4. The dog looked up
and saw its master weeping, kissed
his hand and looked up at the auc
Major Johnson laid his big hand
on the dog's head and said patheti
cally: "Yes, Sheppy, we're parting
with you, we regret to do this, but
we're going to Colorado; we shall al
ways kindly remember you. You
were always faithful to us and when.
Our last friend seemed to have van
ished you kissed our hand. There
was never a stray pig who came on
the premises that you did not point
it out to us. If any of the horses
took kick in the night you called us.
When the children went into the
pasture you guarded them. When
we climbed into the buggy and
drove off to Muscatine you bade us
farewell. You were the only one
that'stood at the gate and sounded
a glad welcome when we returned.
You were always cheerful. You
helped us do the chores by day. and
you guarded our home, our property
and cur safety by night. In sun
shine and in storm you were always
the same; you never murmured
when we forgot to feed you Al
ways kind, faithful nnd true. We
hor.e your new master will be as
kind and considerate of you as we
have been. If we are as faithful
we shall gain a haven cf immortal
glory, but when you lie down for
the last time is it possible you are
nothing more than a JeaJ dog?''
The way the auctioneer spoke
seemed to bring tears to many eyes
and the dog's master disappeared
behind a corn-crib with a bandana
in his hand. - International Auc
Stock brought good prices at the
A. C. Boarman sale near Ely recent

be expected a$ Mr. Boarman always
keeps his stock in fine condition
and advertised his sale extensively.
Mr Boarman always keeps the best
of stock of nil kinds and is a most
successful farmer and breeder.
