On tho birthday anniversary of

Excopt for tho eight years of Clovp
land's administrations, republican
rulo was unbroken for more than
half n century, and continued, with
theso two Intermissions, for forty-
four yoars. In view of this and tho
momentous progress wrought, mark
ing It tho goldon.ago of American
civilization, It Is Idlo to predict that
tho republican party will not con
tlnuo to bo a dynamic forco In the
affairs of this nation, A casual

but dust throwing.

"Look out for the engine!"
The old farmer jumped aside nnd gazed
excitedly at the on-rushing engine, then
got right back In the road, again. Along
came the hook and ladder wagon and
ran Into him, sending him sprawling to
the pavement. Tho policeman ran and
picked him up and said:
"Well, look here, I thought I told you
to look out for the englne7"

The old-time mixture of Sage Tea and
Sulphur for darkening gray, streaked
and faded hair Is coming In vogue again,
says a well known down town druggist
It waa our grandmother's treatment and
hundreds of women and men too, are
again using It to keep their hair a good,
even color which Is quite sensible, as wr
are living In an age when a youthful
appearance Is of the greatest advantage.
Nowadays, though, we don't have the
troublesome 'task ot gathering the sage
and the muaer mixing at home. AH drug
stores sell the ready-to-use product called
A TRUTHFUL VALENTINE.
Sweet mald-olthough I will confess at
times your temper
Is Just a trifle sour; M1.M
As when, for Instance, you got caught
In vour new finery
In that smart autumn snowtr
But to resume sweet maid, I thinx tnai
I was saying ....
I love you very much Indeed.
At least, according to my diagnosis or
This meaning only can I read.
And I should judge It altogether likxiy
though the future
No man with safety may foretell
That for a more or less considerable
period I'll continue
To like you Just as well.
So I sincerely trust ihlB heart-the only
one I have to offer
Although a trifle damaged. I nf?'Br:
You tee, Sue wore It for a year and used
It rather hardly,
And Mabel had It on approval next-
Well,anyhow I do not wish to bore you
I am hopeful
This heart you'll not decline,
But after due and sane consideration
you'll be willing
To be My Valentine.
