The Measure of Merit.
The average tool is like the average
man. No one can tell its worth until
it has proved itself. No one can tell
whether its edge will stay sharp, Orm
and true when a hard knock comes,
or whether it will nick or twist.
The man who values all tools by the
same standard, and buys average tools
over and over again, loses money that
he could save by exercising a little
care. In the old days he had no pro
tection and had to buy his tools on
In order to indentify their tools the
Simmons Hardware Company brand
them with Keen Kutter trade mark,
known in all parts of the world as the
mark of efficiency and quality. When
a workman of any kind, or a farmer,
sees that trade mark, he knows that
the tool that bears it will more than
meet bis expectations. He knows
that any edged or handle tool, or any
piece of cutlery that is marked Keen
Kutter is the very best that his money
The man who uses a Keen Kutter
axe knows that the handle is put in
to stay, because it is held fast by the
Greluer everlasting lock wedge. He
knows that that axe is balanced with
absolute correctness, and that the
"hang" is perfect. He knows that
his Keen Kutter axe will hold its
edge and cut true and deep. So it is
with his Keen Kutter hatchet or
hammer, chisels, draw knife or planes.
He knows that he can get the very
limit of service out of auy Keen Kutter
tool from a lawn mower to a pocket
Every Keen Kutter tool, of any
kind, is thoroughly tested before the
Keen Kutter trade mark is stamped
upon it, and if it is not just what it
ought to be in quality it is destroyed.
This is dove for your protection and
their own. If Keen Kutter tools were
turned out nit or miss, they could
not hold their customers and sell to
the same firms year in and year out.
Suppose you bought three chisels
before you struck one that would do
all you required of it. You would
pay three prices for one tool, and
have two useless tools on your hands.
If the chisel were a Keen Kutter you
could trade it back for another with
out cost to you, and keep on doing it
until you struck the right one. That
is a guarantee that really guarantees
Suppose you paid a few cents more
for your Keen Kutter chisel. The
difference in quality would more
than repay you, and you would only
pay for one chisel, once.
Keen Kutter tools and cutlery are
reoognized as the finest made, in
almost every hardware store, as is the
famous Keen Kutter guarantee. But
if your dealer does not carry them,
you ought to write at once to the
Simmons Hardware Company, St.
Louis Mo., and they wijl see that
you get what you want.
The Legend of the Four-
Where the superstition regarding
ttie four-leafed clover originated is
uot * definitely knqwn, but among
many nations the finding of a four
leafed clover is regarded as an omen
of good-luck and happiness.
The fable goes that a certain young
man desirous of winning fortune,
decided to search for the four-leafed
clover. Hearing they were to be
found in a distant part of the country,
he left his home in search of one but
seemingly without success.
Persistently continuing his search,
he wandered from country to country
but without avail. Finally after
years of futile effort he returned to
his own home wearied from his
wanderings and broken in health and
spirits. And upon arriving at his
oottage, to his amazement, be dis
covered fragrant bunches of the long
sought four-leaved clover growing in
bis own garden.
Many persons on the farms pine
for the music aud entertainment of
the theatres and opera houses which
the city affords, and in their eager
ness for the city they are unmindful
of the fact that by means of the
wonderful Victor it is possible for
them to enjoy in the comfort of their
own homes the best music and enter
tainment, sung and played by the
same groat singers and musicians who
delight the theatre-goers in the big
Every song ami story of any merit
that is amusing audiences in the large
cities can be heard right in the
farmer's home on the Victor.
The list of Victor records includes
selections from the great operas, sung
by such world-renowned singers as
Caruso, Melba, Gadski, Farrar,
Sembrich, Homer and nearly every
other opera singer of note.
Among the gifted musicians who
play for the Victor are Mischa,
Elman, the young Russian genius,
whose marvelous violin playing has
astounded musical audiences that are
acoustomed to hearing wonderful per
formances. The great American
violinist, Maud Powell, whose sweet,
sympathetic playing has endeared
her art to all music lovers, also plays
for the Victor.
Some of the musical organizations
who make records for the Victor are
the U. S. Marine Band, that famous
body of musicians that plays for all
state functions at the White House
and is known as the "President's
Own" band ; and beside this, you can
hear Sousa's Band and Pryor's Band,
the two most popular bands in
Among the famous comedians and
local favorites who help to brighten
the Victor homes are Harry Lauder,
the most popular and highest paid
comedian in tte world today; Nora
Bayes, May Irwin and Blanche Ring,
who are known throughout the United
States for their humorous songs and

The Right Remedy at the Right
It is sometimes a puzzle to know
just what to do or what to use for the
many diseases that constantly attack
horse,flesh. Diseases thai, if prompt
ly dealt with, should neither decrease
the cash value or the servicejvalue of
the horse. Prompt action when fight
ing disease of wins
more than half the battle.
A little'knowledge of the horse, his
ordinary diseases and ailments and
remedies to be applied may be of
valuable assistance_Jto?many of our
We have in mind a little book "A
Treatise on the Horse and His Dis
eases." It contains an index of dis
eases, which gives the symptoms,
cause, and what is said to be the best
treatment of each and will be sent
free to any of our readers. It is pub
lished by the Dr. B. ,\. Kendall Com
pany, Enosburg Falls, Vermont, the
makers of Kendall's Spavin Cure.
Nearly every horse owner realizes
the necessity of having a good all
around horse remedy on the stable
shelf at all times.
For over thirty years this standard
remedy has been used and recommend
ed by horse owners all over the country
and many parts of the world. Not
only as a cure for iSpavin, but as a
tnoroughy reliable remedy for most
all the ordinary ailments of the horse,
including cuts, bruises, swellings,
sprains, ringbone, cuib,' split and
lameness from whatever cause.
It is well to be ready to apply tbe
right remedy at tbe right time and
when iv doubt to be guided by the
satisfactory experience of others.
Druggists everywhere sell Kendall's
Spavin Cure and will furnisgh a copy
Of the little book "A Treatise on the
Horse and His Diseases" free of
charge. Our readers would do well
to have this book for reference and if

Brother Carriers: -This is a photo
graph of myself and my Hupmobile,
on K. D. No. 1 from this office.
As I have seen many inquiries in
the Mews from carriers asking for
information from carriers who were
using automobile routes, will tell you
what 1 think of the Hupmobile.
It weighs eleven hundred pounds
and that is enough has tires 30x3, and
2OJM. P. engine. I have run it about
two thousand miles over the Alleghany
mountains, and several other moun
tains and over all kinds of roads and
some of them I am sure are as steep
as any hill in Pennsylvania, and did
not use all the power. lam positive
the ' 'Hup" has power to spare on any
hill that a public road runs over, if
it is at all possible for a horse and
buggy. Igo about 16 miles on one
gallon of gasoline over all kinds of
hills. I have not had a puncture yet
on the road and my tire is good; that
is all due to the lightness of the 6
car- a heavy machine could not do
To make a long story short, I feel
there is not a car on the market today
in the United States that will give
you the service and as little trouble
as the "Hup" and it will not cost
you a fortune to keep it going.
I am not receiving anytning for
writing this article, neither was i
asked to write it. This is an answer
to the many inquiries 1 have seen in
I do not believe there is any car as
suitable for R. P. D. carriers as the
little "Hup." 1 had another make
but it was not in the "Hup" class.
"Hup" for me. Any carrier, or any
one wishing further information,
which 1 have not stated here, will be
freely given if stamped envelope is
sent with inquiry.

Substitute for Plaster.
When the walls crumble or an acci

can be filled, even if there is no lime

cover with water. Let stand for ten
or twelve hours, then squeeze out the
water until the pulp is quite dry.
Pick pieces still Oner and add some
boiled Hour paste and a little melted

were plaster. It will dry firm, but
dirty in color. If one is not going to
