Famous Ozark Fruit Belt
The most productive apple and peach country in the world.
An Acre of orchard yields from $100 to $300 worth of fruit
The attention of investors in past years has been drawn to the profit
of fruit growing and many have given up occupation in oflice :ui on
farms to engage in what has been dcscrilted to be an ideal life. Lack of
knowledge and experience lias, however, often sadly interfered with the
hojel fi r outcome, and the enterprise has fallen far short of what it
could have lieen if properly gone alut. The right plan is clearly the
co-operative one. by hich t lie capital of the various investors is com
bined and the proper class of skilled superintendents and helpers is em
ployed. The plan is the most productive, and instead of being a weary
nuf worried cultivator liimelf, the investor is a bond-holder cutting oil
his coupons aud drawing bis regular and handsome dividends.
The latter is the plan of the Ozark Commercial Orchard & Fruit
Company. The shares of the company can Iw bought on a basis of 10
down and $5 per mouth.
Each Share Represents an Acre of Orchard,
To have one or ten of these shares is obviously, however, better
than to have one or ten acres of orchard, for the economy of working
tbe whole great orchard over a large numlierof small tmes results in much
greater profits to the investor.
An investment of a small part of your earnings for a short time
will secure an income for life.

Kasealiar Manners an mcr Are Dis
played In Madrid.
Smart life is very little seen in the
etreets of Madrid. Women never walk
abont unattended and eeldoni do more
than descend from and enter their car
riages. Men, as a rule, are gravely po
lite, the Ix-st of them genuinely so and
the others with a varnish which does
very well when not scratched. They
stare ont of countenance every woman
who passes. This, they explain, means
nothing, and is indeed a delicate sort of
flattery, but by American ladies it is
often taken for insolence and is always
In the Royal Opera House at Madrid
an apparently well bred Spaniard will
not hesitate to walk down the aisle
during the entr'act, and, taking a fa
vorable stand near the woman lie wishes
to regard, stare at her for two minntes
at a time, with or without glasses. No
sooner is the curtain down than nearly
all the men in the bouse as a rolo
handsome fellows and well dressed
bnnclt together in the middle aisle and
take the measure of their surroundings.
It is a solemn moment. Nobody smiles
or jokes, and there does nut seem to be
much talking. Hats are worn, and
every man looks abont and stares.
When an acquaintance is descried in
one of the boxes, he gravely lifts his
hat andTcplaces it, but his features re
tain their impassive gravity.
The women, when one does see them,
com to bo handsomely gowned, but
they are not as good Ifioking as the
men. They go about in tine looking
carriages, drawn by spirited horses or
by a spanking pair of mnles. I have
never seen such mules as are to be seen
at times on the shopping streets -of
Madrid. You will often tind on these
crowded thoroughfares equipages that
would look well oa Fifth avenue, flocks
of sheep mid turkeys and slow moving
oxen, not to mention the omnipresent
donkey. The cafe life is an imitation of

He vill march boldly up to the coiled
reptile, allow himself to be struck in
his jowls once, twice or threo times, as
the case may lie, and will then calmly
proceed to swallow tho reptile without
concern. Tho reason for the hog s im
munity is duo to the fact that the blood
vessels are so minnteand infrequent on
his checks, where fat is predominant,
that they fail to take up the poison mid

I3y remembering two simple facts any
one can distinguish a poisotisous serpent
from a harmless one. Tho venomous
reptile invariably possesses a triangular
ly shaped head and a blunt nose, while
his tail is correspondingly blnnt and
stubby. Any snake that tapers sniootn

of its nose and to tho tip of its tail as
well, growing slender in a gradual and
regular manner, is absolutely devoid of
venom. New crk Press.

to explain to the ofiicials some matter

"Do you Fpeak English?"
The jioor lady had really lost her head,
and she con Id only stammer out, "Un

Then Lord Bramwell continued the
conversation in French, but it became
evident that the lady understood scarce

equally bad results. Finally she mut

There is a source of nervous ailments
