If you are sceptical it can only be because you do not know the

It isn't the thing you do, dear,
it 'a the thing you leave undone,
That gives you a bit of the heartarhe
At the Hetting of the sun,
The tender word forgotten;
The let tar you did not write;
The Hower you did not aend, dear,
Are your haunting ghosta at night.
The atone you might have lifted
Out of a brother'a way;
The bit of heartsome counael
You were hurriadtoo much to say;
The loving touch of the hand, dear,
The gentle winning tonea,
Which you ha.l no time northought for,
With troubles enough of your own.
Thoae little acts of kindness
So eaaily out of mind.
Thoae cbancea to be angels
Which we poor mortala flnd;
They come in night and ailence,
Each sad, reproachful wraith
When hope ia faint and flagging
And a child haa fallen on faith.
For life ia all too short, dear,
And aorrow ia all too great,
To suffer our aoul compasaion
That tarriea until too late;
And it ian't the thing you do, dear,
It's the thing you leave undone,
Which givea you a bit of a heartache
At tbe aetting of the sun.

1 announce to you thedeathof United
States Senator John Warwick Daalei,
at Lynchburg, Virginia, June 29th.
lt?:3r> p m., 1910. He waa in wara gal?

devoled the full Dower of hia anlendid
intellect to the aervice of hia State.
Hiatory will do Juatice, I truat, to hia
enviable record,, but now we wish sim
ply to expreaa the aorrow which filla
the heart of the people of Virginia. It
ia not ao much a atateaman and orator
who haa paaaed away, but our friend,
the man we love, and it ia to him we
wiah to ahow every poaaible murk of
reapeet and affection.
"Having theae feelinga in my heart
and expresaing aentimenta of the peo?
ple of Virginia, I have ordered the flag
of the State to be placed at half-maat
and to aorernain until after thefuneral,
which will take place at Lynchburg at
5 o'clock, Friday aft*rnoon. I direct
the oflicea of the State to be cloaed on
Friday, and earneatly requeat all citi

Jwanson's Tribute To Daniel.
"Senator Daniel waa preeminently the
moat diatinguiahed Virginian of hiagen
eration. None excelled him in knowl
edge of law. Hia work on Negotiable
lnatrumenta ia the beat law book aince
Judge Story'a production. No lawyer
of thia day haa argued and conducted
aucceaafully more important caaea. No
orator of hia generalion aurpaaaea him.
Hia orationa are claaaie, both in beauty
of expreaaion and force of thought. For
alinoat forty yeara he waa the wiae.
loved and aucceaaful leader of the Vir?
ginia Democracy. For almoet twenty
tive yeara he had repreaented the State
with hia rare and di.-Uinguiahed ability
in the United Statea Congreaa. Hewilj
be remembered aa one of Virgiuia'a
great Senatora. He had previoualy ren
dered great aervice in the councila of
the State. He waa a beautiful writer
audeaaayiat. He attained great dia*
tinction in the Civil War for gallantry
and auperh quality aa a aoldier, and in
almoat every field of human endeavor
he aucceaafuliy labored with distinction.
Hia characttir waa aa strikingly noble
aa hia genlua waa great, Kindly, cour
teous, the aoul of honor and integrity,
clean and pure, the State never pro
duced a finer example of a Virginia
cavalier. Hia pure life, public and pri
vate, haa beenan inapiration to young
men, and has created in Virginia lofty
ideala. He haa been abulwarkof purity.
Virginia never had a aon more loved or
more admired. The niemory of hia elo
quence, hia godlike face, hia auperb
hearing, hia great public aervice, earn
eat patriotiam, hia great and varied
achievementa, will ever linger in thia
State aa a precioua heritage."
Will be Two Primaries.
Senator Daniel'a death meana that
two primaries will beheldnextaummer.
Senator Martin will go before the peo?
ple in the primaries next summer to aak
re-election at their handa. It may be that
ke will have oppoaition. At the aame
time Mr. Swanaon will have to face a
primary ftght. aa there are aeveral men
anxioua to make the race with him,
among them being former Governor
Andrew Jackaon Montague, Repreaent
ative Hal Flood, Speaker Byrd and ex
Governor Hoge Tyler.
It ia believed, however, that Mr.
Swanaon will win in the primary and be
elected for the full aix year l.-rm in
Congreaa. While the governorahip of
Virginia haa been regarded aa a politi
cal graveyard, Mr Swanaon a aervice
waa ao hrilliant, auccesaful and aatia
factory to the people of tbe State, that
they not only heaped encomiums upon
him for hia work, but on allaidea it waa
aaid that hia political career had but
begun and that a higher niche in the
temple of fame awaited him.
Practically no discusaion will haheard
about the appointment of Senator Dan
iel'a aucceaaor, aa the matter waa thor
oughly threshed out last apring, and
politiciana agreed that Mr. Swanson had
earned the Senatorial toga, and the ae
lection of him by the (iovernor would
be approved in all democratic quartera
of the State.
A VISIT TO THE POOR HOUSE.
Northumberland poor house ia aituated
about one and a quaiter milea from the
county seat (Heath8ville), and aquarter
of a mile from Kirkland Grove camp,
upon a hill within less than two hundred
yards of the main county road, which
adda much to dispel the lonelinesa of
the inmatea of thia charitable home.
There are three buildinga. two are
made of wood. One ia occupied by the
superintendant, the other uaed by the
white paupera. Another building ia
an "old time" quarter in design, made
of brick, which is for the colored.
Not until recent yeara have the aani
tary condition of thinga been looked
The preaent board of superviaors have
done more for the comfort of these
unfortunate paupers along all aanitary
linea than any board in recent yeara.
for which they ahould be congratulated.
A woman is hired to keep all the rooms
clean and do the cooking. It was
my privilege to go through the building
occupied by the whites, and I waa favor
ably impreased with the cleanly manner
in which thoae rooms are kept. A new
up-to-date pump which haa been placed
in the well that a ohild can operate with
ease, proves to be a great convenience
to thcae old. infirm paupera. There is
a very attractive building being erected
to be occupied by the superinten?
dant, Mr. T. 1). Hogan, who looks after
the phyaical needs of thoae under hia
care. I am told not aince the days of

the exception of one viait by an Kpiaco

recently the county treaaurer, Mr. J.
M. Kooth, who haa aerved in that ca
pacity for twenty-aix yeara ao faith
fully and efftciently, desirea to reaign
hia otlice, but haa not forgotten hia God
and wanta to apend thereat of his uaeful
life doing busineaa for hia Maker. Every
fourth Sunday morning he is found in
the poor houae at the hour of 10 o'cloek
holding aervire. He ia a practical talker
and poaaeasea the trait of knowing what
to aay, and when to aay it. If you are a
doubting, weak Chriatian and deaire to
get cloeer to your God, come out to
hear him pext fourth Sunday morning.
All are invited to come.
FLOWERS ARE MADE.
The artifiicial rlower induatry ia one
of the largeat and moat intereating of
the aeaaonal tradea in New York.
Seventy-three per cent. of the entire
artificial flower manufacture of the
Ifnited Statea ia carried on in the Ital

that involves the wiring of leavea and

REUTION OF UVE STOCK TO
The price of land ia high mainly be
cauae the price of oorn ia high, and the
price of corn is high chiefly becausw ao
much of it ia in dernand for the purpose
of feeding live atock, while there ia a
world ahortage of live atock, which
keeps up both relative deraand and pri
ces for meata in all counlriea, becauae
population every where isgrowing faater
than the supply of meat animals.
Take away from the farma a conaid
erable ahare of their live atock, and it
would follow that auch er.ormoua quan
tities of corn would be thrown upon the
market aa to reduce ita price below the
cost of production, and auch a general
drop in the value of corn would surely
lower the value of landa all over the
corn belt, and hence would affect aeri
oualy the value of all landa.
It followa, therefore, that if the far
mera of the United States would con
tinueto receive remunerative prices for
their annual corn crops, and if they
would maintuin the preaent general val
uea of farm landa throughout the coun
try, they rnust keep up or increaae the
supply of live atock on farma.
Of courae there ia alwaya the added
and very importantconsideration of pre
8erving land valuea by preaerving and
increaaing the fertility of the aoil,
which can be naturally and permanently
done only by raiaing plenty of live atock
on the farm, aa every up-to-date far
The above is a aerious subject for
thoughtful study by all who are inter
eated in land values, including railroad
managera. land dealers, colonization
and irrigation coropaniea, andothersbe
aidea the farmers themaelvea.
In short, to increaae and improve the
aupply of live atock in the country, ea
pecially of meat animala, ia abaolutely
esaential to keeping up the production
and price of corn; to maintaining the
value of landa, and to preservir.g the
fertility of the soil; while all of theae
are neceaaary to continued agricultural
proaperity, which ia now well recog
nized as the baaia of the general proa?
perity of all claasea and of all buaineaa
intereata throughout the nation. ? From

The world has room for the manly man,
with the apirit of manly cheer;
The world delighta in the man who amilea,
when hia eyes keep back the tear;
It lovea the man who, when thinga go
wrong, can take hia placeand stand
With hia face to the fight and hia eyea to
the light, and toil with a willine
The manly man ia the country's need,
and the moment'a need, foraooth,'
Witha heart that beats to the pulaing
tread of the lilied leaguea of truth;
The world ia hia, and it waita for him.

And the slrength to do and the will to

The world delighta in the manly man,

THE EUITOR'S PARADISE.
Frederick C. Beyer, a well known
Cleveland editor told, at a recent presa
banquet, a newspaper siory.
"A Medina editor died," he saui,
"and was, of course, directed to aacend
to the Abode of the Juat. But during
the ascent the editor'a journaliatic curi
oaity asserted itself and he aaid:
"Is it permitted for one to have a
look at?er ?the other place?"
" 'Certainly,' waa the gracioua reply,
and accordingly a descent to the other
place waa made. Here the editor found
much to interest him. He' acurried
about and was aoon loat to view.
"Hia angelic escort got worried at
laat and began a systematic search for
his charge. He found him at last seated
before a furnace. fanning himaelf and
gazing at the people in the fire. On
the door of the furnace waa a plate,
aay ing: 'Delinquent Subscribers.'
" 'Come,' said the angel to the editor,
'we muat be going.'
"?You goon,' the editor answered,
without lifting his eyes. '1'm not com?
ing. Thia ia heaven enough for me'."
