which happened when I was first mar?
ried to your ma. We set up housekeep
ing In one of those cottages that you
read about in the story books, but that
you want to shy away from when it's
put up to you to live in one of them.
It was just the place to go for a picnic,
but It's been my experience that a fol<
low does most of Ills picnicking heforo
Your ma did the cooking nnd I hus
tled for things to cook, though 1 would
take a shy at It myself once In awhile
and get up my muscle tossing flapjacks.
It was pretty rough sailing, you bet,
but one way und auother we managed
to get a good deal of satisfaction out of
it, becauso we had made tip our niiuds
to take our fun as we went along.
With most people happiness is some
thing that is always Just a day off. But
I*havo made it a rule never to put off
being happy till tomorrow.
J, was clerktug In a general store at
that time, but I httd a little weakness
for live stock even then, and while I
couldn't afford to plunge in it exactly
I managed to buy a likely little sliote
that I reckoned on carrying through
the summer on credit and presenting
with a Mil for board in the fall. He
was just a plain pig when he came to
us, and we kept htm in a little sty, but
we weren't long in finding out that he
wasn't any ordinary root and gruut
pig. The first I know your ma was
calling him Toby and had turned him
loose. Answered to his name like a
dog. Never saw such a sociable pig.
Wanted to sit ou the porch with us.
Tried to come Into the house evenings.
Used to run down the road squealing
for Joy when he saw me coming home
Woll, it got on toward November, and
Toby had been making the most of his
opportunities. I never saw a pig that
turned corn into fat so fast, and the
stouter he got the better his disposition
grew. I reckon I was attached to him
myself In a sort of a sneaking way, but
I was mighty fond of hog meat, too,
and we needed Toby Ih the kitchen. So
I sent around and had him butchered,
When I got home to dinner next day,
I noticed that your tan looked mighty
solemn as she set the roast of pork
down In front of me, but I strayed off,
thinking of something else as I carved,
and my Avlts were off woolgathering
sure enough when I said:
"Will you have a piece of Toby, my
Well, sir, she Just looked at me for a
moment, and then she burst out crying
and ran away from the table. But
when I went after her and asked her
what was the matter she stopped cry
ing and was mad In a minute all the
way through. Called me a heartless,
cruel cannibal. That seemed to relieve
her so that she got over her mad and
began to cry again. Begged me to take
Toby out of pickle and to bury him In
the garden. I reasoned with tier, and
in the end I made her see that any
obsequies for Toby, with pork at 8
cents a pound, would be a pretty ex
pensive funeral for us. But first and
last she had managed to tako my appe
tite away so that I didu't want any
roast pork for dinner or cold pork for
That night I took what was left of
Toby to a storekeeper at the Crossing,
who I knew would bo able to gaze on
his hams without burstiug Into toars,
and got a pretty fair price for him.
I simply mention Toby ir passing as
an examplo of why I believe .women
weren't cut out for businei s?at least
for the pork packing buslnefi.i. I've had
dealings with a good many of them,
first and last, and It's been my experi
ence that when they've got a weak
case they add their sex to it and win,
and that when they've got a strong
case they subtract their sex from It
and deal with you harder than a man.
They're simply bound to win either
way, and I don't like to play a game
where I haveu't any show. When a
clerk makes a fool break, I don't want
to beg his pardon for calling his atten
tion to it, and I don't want him to
blush and tremble and leak a little
brine into a fancy pocket handkerchief.
A little change Is a mighty soothing
thing, and I like a woman's ways too
much at home to care very much for
them at the office. Instead of hiring
women I try to hire their husbands,
and then I usually have them both
working for me. There's nothing like a
woman at home to spur on a man at

You've got to believe that the Lord
made the first hog with the Graham

drove which rushed down a steep place
was packed by a competitor. You've
got to know your goods from A to It

like a young mother knows baby talk
and to be as proud of 'om as the young
father of a twelve pound boy, without
really thinking that you're .stretching
it four pounds. You're got to believe In
yourself and make your buyers take
stock in you at par and accrued Inter

bloodhound for an order and the grip of
a bulldog on a customer. You've got
to feel the same personal solicitude
over o bill of goods that strays off to a
competitor as a parson over a back
slider and hold special services to
bring it back into the fold. You've got
to get up every morning with deter

with satisfaction. You'vo got to eat

VARIETY is said to be the "Spice of Life."
In the selection of a man's Clothing, it is certainly the

thing, and JUDICIOUS
VARIETY is another. No

great deal, and we could not afford to make this assertion unless wo knew 1 hat

of a Mineral Water. When oarbonating a mineral water, if it is^ii hard water

gases escape, and tho water is left flat and hard, while if it is u soft, water, like

After a service of one season al
White Stone Lithia Springs, as resi
dent physician I do not hesitate to sa,\
that the effect of the water upon those _
who drink it for any length of lime./
has been perfectly marvelous. invari*
ably an increase both in (losll and ap
petite was perceptible in one week,
proving it to be a mineral water of
undoubted powerful tonic nroporty. its
peculiar adaptability to dlsoasos origi
nating from disorders of the kidney,
bladder and livor, such as Dropsy,
Bright's disease, Diabetes and uric acid
calculi, and all forms of Dyspepsia,
Rheumatism and Gout, is to bo ex
pected from the splendid analysis it
