Does it Pay
There is nothing that adds to the selling value or
the renting value of a house like pool paint there
is nothing that makes home more home -like than
It pays to paint. The better the paint, the better
pays in the beginning because it goes so far pays in
the end because it lasts so long, and looks so well, as
long as it lasts. There is no paint like it for beauty
and durability, for economy and satisfaction.
Ask the dealer for it.
If you would like to learn many points about
painting, we'll send you an illustrated book free.

tree which was .surrounded with
water several feet in depth, he has
tened home for a horse, rode through
the water and tied the horse to the
tree, w hile he climbed up to shake
the coon , down. When the coon
alighted it ran tip the fore leg of the
horse, which scared the animal so
that it broke loose and ran home,
leaving Ira high and dry in the tree,

and wade out. Rut Inugot his coon.
Track on the liririge. '
The Tri-City Railway company lias
a force of men at work on the tracks
on the Rock Island bridge narrowing
the guage to its normal width. When
the bridge was built it was the inten
tion of the government to lay cedar
blocks tiie entire width of the bridge
from one end to the other. For some
reason they changed their plans and
laid thm iictweeii the rails only, and
laid plank between and on either side
of the tracks. These cedar blocks
have absorbed moisture and swollen
to such an extent that they have
forced the rails several inches further
apart than they should be. Accord
ingly the st rcet car company is tak
ing up the blocks and placing heavy
iron rods from rail to rail everv 10
feet through the length of Hie bridge
tracks. These bind the rails tiriulv
in place and tlx: blocks are then re
placed. This necessitates the exnen
dittire of several thousand dollars on
the part of the company, and demon
strates fully that t he management is
prepared to eoie with any emergi-ucy
that might arise in operating this ex

house l;tt evening. Several of the

nature of a farewell.
In his address before the college
graduates yesterday afternoon Dr.
SchaelTer. of the Iowa State univer
sity, said that the prosperity of a na
tion depends on its educated citizens;
that many of the boys in America are
brought up supposing themselves lit
for congress or the presidency: that
some ot.iii- high oliice holders have
contempt for learning. --What has
made this valley of the Mississippi
like a garden?"'asked the seaker.
"Communication and increased com
mercial laws. One of the most
deplorable things in modern pol
itics is the unfair struggle between
labor and capital. We have no dis
tinction in rank except between the
educated and the ignorant." In con
clusion Dr. Si-haeffcr said that men of
education should ln-stir themselves,
and. if possible, purify polities. The
battle of Manila was won by training
and not by politics: by 'mechanics
and not by politicians.
