A big lecturing doctor down east shot it at his audience the other evening that "the Ameri can people take too many baths." The water crank, the man who showers in the morning, dips at night, scrubs twice a week, brags about it all the time, is a nuis ance and he is usually washed so thin that there is not much good fellowship to him. Too much water takes the perfumed veril ity from a man in about a week. A great deal of water may estab lish pale and tinted daintiness in a woman, but it is bad for a man, who is considerable of an animal. There is a mighty good doctor up in this country, broad of back, substantial in girth, large of neck, 1 florid, healthy, hearty, good natured, clean and alto gether wholesome, who does not believe in much bathing and who never advises it. His idea is and he maintains it logically ; and strongly, that just water enough for cleanliness and to drink is all that any man should have. '. A rough towel in the morning will do as much good as an enervat ing inside and outside flooding. Clay Center Times. They tell of a small boy who persisted in saying "have went," to the great distress of his tea cher. To break him of such un grammatical usage she kept him in after school and told him to write "have gone" 500 times. The boy went at his task indus triously and worked steadily for some time. Finally the teacher was called from the room by an other teacher, and when she re turned found the youthful gram mar student had gone. On his desk were a number of tablet sheets covered with "have gones" and the following note: "I am through and have went home."

The supply of cattle here this week has been several thousand head smaller than some days in recent weeks, and under ordin ary conditions the market would be higher but the big run and a break of. 15 to 25 cents in Chicago yesterday gave the week a bad start. The decline here yester day, was around 10 cents on steers, but other classes held about steady. The run here to day is 8000 head, market strong er on steers, steady sn other kinds. Top price here today was $6.65, same as the top in Chicago yesterday except for one lot of prime steers. It is gratifying to sellers to meet the, fairly good market here today in the face of the bad outlook yesterday. Sales here above $6.35 are scare, this week, and bulk of sales of beef steers run from $5.25 to $6.15. Out side of the bad- situations in Chicago yesterday because of the heavy supply here yesterday conditions have improved this week and there is a better out let for the beef. Cows range from $3.00 to $5.40, heifers $4.00 to $6.00, with one lot of yearling steers and heifers at $6.45 here today, bulls $3.40 to $5.25, calves a quarter higher today, with top veals at $6.75. Stockers and feeders trade is dulll this week, price 10 to 20 lower than a week ago,. as farm occupation are tak ing up the time of majority of country buyers at this time, stockers selling at $3.75 to $5.50 feeders $4.75 to $5.60. The hog market received a set back yesterday but is 5 to 10 higher today, top $7.25, bulk S6.75 to $7.20. Light weights got the most advance today and sell at $6.60 to $7.05. Sales of hog products by the packers are said to be extra heavy for this season, and a big hole has already been made in stocks of provis ions, a feature that is, likely to have a bearing on the market later in the summer, at a time when packers count on buying: cheap hogs to build up their stocks of meats. Run here is is liberal today, 18,500 head, but packers have been a going a little short for a week, account of mod erate runs, and the market gain ed strenght all through the session today, and closed at the best point reached. Sheep and lambs are coming pretty freely, but the market is 10 higher tbdayi on a supply of 10,000 head, which is a continua tion of the healthy state of trade in that department that has rul ed for some time. Top lambs sold at $8.15, bulk of lambs $7.90. to $8.15, yearlings worth up to $7.50,-wethers-$6.50, ewes $5.85. Texas clipped muttons are sell ing at $5.20 to $5.35, fat goats around $4.25, brushers $3.00 t $3.50. ' J. A. RlCKJVRT, L. S. Correspondent. The Globe says: An Atchison girl had a proposal of marriage Sunday night and asked a week to think it over. She went to all of her married sisters. One, whe used to be a belle, had three children, did all of her own work and hadn't been to the theater or out riding since she was mar ried. Another, whose on s band was a promising young man at the time she war married, was supporting him. A third didn't dare say her life was her own when her husband was around and a fourth was divorced. Af ter visiting them .and hearing their woes, the heroine of this little, tale went home, got pen and ink and paper and wrote an an swer to the young man.

Once irpon a time there was an editor ha Kansas popularly known as the Town Mean; Man. He said, things about righteous ness in public office, good citizen ship, exemplary conduct, hon esty, fairness and general de cency, until he developed a beau tiful bunch of enemies. They villified him and abused him in every conceivable manner, but he held his peace. The enemies Ye Editor made were: always looking for an opening, so when small poac appeared in the village it was immediately reported that Ye Editor had been exposed. Ye Editor was forthwith carried to the pest house, where he prompt ly and effectively contracted the disease. And in his delirium and travail when he was most likely to convey the contagion, Ye Editor rushed out of the pest house and shook hands, with all of his friends. Ralph. Tennal. If" there were no women, men woujM have no object in life; their mustaches would cease to inter est them; they would not care a Chinaman whether their collars were ironed or not; they would have nobady to nurse them when they had the toothache, or to keep them from believing they were going to die when an old fashioned stomach-ache had the grip upon them. - There would be nobody to take for ice cream and no small edition of flesh and blood to hug. There would be nobody to fight against being kissed and then - take to it as nat ural - as the cat does to cream. Most important of all, there would be nobody to write against, to complain of and to love with all your heart and soul. With out her man would never get to heaven, and without them they would never have a taste of the other place on earth. So, if man has anv spnss whatflvpr ri'll nnt, his arm around the woman he is the fondest of, thank the good Lord for her and wonder, as she does, what in the world he would do without her.
