Something About " Narrowness of Farm Life" and Its Disadvantages, i Mrs. Aunio It. ItutiiiotiK in Farmer>-' Voice. The agricultural paper!" teem with I articles on " How to keep the hoys on the farm," hut seldom a word ahout | the girls. Now we could not think of ; doing without the hoys. Bless the dear, noisy boys! Their cheery, airy j whistle is the best antidote for the j blues one can take. The girls, pre eious jewels, are just as essential to farm life as the boys, anil farm life is just as necessary to their full and evenly balanced development, minds and bodies, as they to farm life, and where tliey are not happy and content ed in their farm home something is radically wrong somewhere. If the father is continually growling about the mud or dust, tlie heat or cold, the tariff, low prices, poor crops, the moth er about farm drudgery, deprivations, lack of congenial society, need we wonder that children growing up in such an atmosphere will long for "wider fields, to know and be known to meet people of note, to listen to the grand flow of eloquence from the pul pit or rostrum," are anxious to tlee from evils they know to those they know not? My heart aches for child ren of such homes. The very joys of life are dashed aside, and they jicer into the dim future with distorted vis ion and imagine they see honor, suc cess and happiness, which, when they meet, is only the black despair of dis appointment. Parents, pause and consider the ob ligations you are under to your child ren. This debt cannot be paid with broad acres or many dollars. A con tented spirit, a well-balanced mind, a strong constitution, helpful hands, temperate habits, honor, love and un selfishness are the birthrights of every child. Just so far as they fall short of this standard you have failed to start them aright in this world. When you fail to teach, by precept and prac tice, these holy principles, you rob your children of that priceless pearl. I would be the last person to dis courage any lnudabll ambition, but it is with genuine sorrow I hear a girl lament the " narrowness of farm life" and express a desire for "city or town advantages," and a determination to seek employment there. To such I say, don't, my dear. Where one, who has left the farm, succeeds, scores have failed. Many without sufficient forti tude to return to the farm home and begin where they left off have drifted to ruin. You will say, this is an old story. I have heard it before. It is true, nevertheless, as many a wrecked life, a premature grave, will tell you, if you listen. If your home is a happy, cheerful one, you are needed there to keep it thus. If it is a cheerless, discontented abode, your duty is to make a model home of it. Farm life is not narrow, neither need our lives be narrow on a farm. In no other place, in all this beautiful world, does nature deal out her glories with so lavish a hand. In no other place are the evils of life so completely excluded. In the long win ter evenings you can meet the noted writer, the eloquent preacher, the sci entific lecturer, between the lids of book or magazine, and meet them at their best. There they are shorn of the petty frivolities that mar the beau ties of so many lives. What glorious hours for study, for acquainting one's self with gems of thought, for mental communion with the true, the noble, spirits of the day! Drive away this discontent with plans for brightening and beautifying your home, then put your plans into action. No duty, however distasteful, but may be made a pleasure if you will. Take an inter est in everything around you and you will see it. Work for happiness and you will get it. " Cheerfulness." The Milwaukee has hit upon a clever bit of advertising, entitled: " Cheerfulness," which at the same time, is full of good sense. It reads: " Learn to laugh. A good laugh is better than medicine. Learn how to tell a story. A well-told story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick room. Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself. The world ia too busy to care for your ills and sorrows. " Learn to stop croking. If you cannot see any good in the worid, keep the bad to yourself. Learn to hide your yains and aches under pleasant smiles. No one cares to hear whether you have the earache, headache or rheumatism. " Don't cry. Tears do well enough in novels, but are out of place in real life. Learn to meet your friends with a smile. A good-humored man or woman is always welcome, but the dyspeptic or hypochondriac is not wanted anywhere, and is a nuisance as well. "Above all, give pleasure. You will pass through this world but once. fTew to tlie Lino, Let tlie Chips Fall "Where they IVlay." Any gin id tiling, therefore, that you can do or any kindness that you can show to any human being, you had better do it now; do not defer • r neg lect it, for you will not pass this way again." BULLDOZING BEGUN ALREADY. The Omaha life, one of the most bitter and intolerant anti-Bryan news papers in the ITiited States, prints with applause a letter from a traveling man by the name of Stevens who says: " As an instance of popular feeling in business circles, 1 may state that tlie N. C. Foster Lumber company of Fair child, Wis., one of the largest firms in the lumber region, has a standing stip ulation on every purchase it makes that the goods shall be returned in event Bryan is elected. This means that there will he no demand for prod ucts of the mills." The paper also prints what purports to be a copy of this stipulation by the N. C. Foster company, which reads as follows: " The N. <\ Foster Lumber company shall have the privilege of returning all, or any part of the goods 011 this order, the amount paid on same to he refunded in case W. J. Bryan is elect-, cd President of the United States in November next." We went through all this scoun drelly bribery and hulldo/ing in 18%, and notwithstanding the fact that this expedient was resorted to in thousands of manufacturing and commercial es tablishments, it was still necessary for Mark Hanna to buy votes and to hire repeaters in doubtful States in order to beat Mr. Bryan. And then, even on the face of the returns, corrupted anil falsified returns as they were, the the change of 1112,000 vo'es in certain localities would have elected the Dem ocratic nominee. This shows that the American people are difficult to co erce, and it affords promise that they cannot be coerced to the extent they were in 180(5 at the next election fol lowing. The action of this lumber company, if correctly reported, is nothing more than bribery and corruption of the ballot. Whoever X. C. Foster may be, if his concern is taking the action which the lice reports—and it is no ticeable it reports it without any con demnation—he is as guilty of fraud upon the ballot as any thug, briber or ballot box stutl'er who was ever sent to the penitentiary. It is sore comment on American business morals lh.it firms should be found willing to resort to such expedients and that any self respecting business man will consent to make a sale under the insolent con ditions prescribed. The Sultan's Dilemma. "Your majesty," said the chief eu uuch, as he approached the Sublime Porte, " numbers 4, 11 and 44 desire me to inform you that they require an appropriation for spring hats; num bers 0 to 73 arc in need of a couple of bales of shirt waists; numbers 81 to 106 inclusive have called my attention to their distressing lack of golf cajies; numbers 38, 40 and 64 say that they can support existence no longer with out pulley belts ; numbers 111 to 222 feel that they have duck skirts com ing to them, and—" " Hold on!" interrupted the Sultan; "you tell them that I've got a little bill to settle with Uncle Sam this spring, and that the whole bunch will have have to wear calico Mother llub bards till I can levy another income tax. Have you got a match!" And as the chief eunuch dug up a couple of the California variety from his hip pocket, the great ruler lighted his hookah and sank back on the di van for a long reflective smoke. Baby's Wireless Telephone Plan. Chicago Inter-Ocean. The Rev. Case Davis, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church at War ren, 111., has a daughter nearly three years of age who is very particular about saying her prayers before retir ing at night. One evening Inst week her mother was detained from hearing her prayers at the usual hour, nnd lit tle Louise waited patiently for some time. Finally patience ceased to be a virtue with her, and she climbed upon a chair and, taking down the receiver of the telephone, shouted into it: " Hello, Central: Dive me heaven. I want to say my prayers." His Presence of Mind. " A woman can't sharpen a lead pencil or throw a stone," read Mr. Meckton aloud. " What's that?" asked his wife, rather sharply. " Don't mistake me, Henrietta," was the quick rejoinder. "I am not gloat ing. I was just reflecting ou the wis dom of nature. There is no reason why a woman should sharpen pencils or throw stones when there are plenty of men hanging 'round, whose time doesn't amount to much anyhow, and who might as well be doing that as nothing." OIAMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 1, 1900. NEEDLESS METHODIST ALARM. I'hii'Rgo Tribune. The address of Luther Laflin Mills at tire recent banquet of the Methodist Social union on the decadence of the Methodist Church voices a prevailing sentirmnt among Methodists them selves but the statistics of the church covering its entire history, if they tcl the truth, do not justify the alarm. It is true that the Bishops, in their recent address to the church, in which they appointed a week for fasting and prayer, said : " To-day our Methodism confronts a serious situation. Our statistics for the last year show a de crease in the number of our members. Year before last our advance was checked; last year our advance col umn was forced back a little. The lost ground is paved with the "dead." This is unquestionably a startling statement, but it is the rhetoric rather than the facts that startle. If the last year had been the first in which there was a decrease, and the previous four years the only years when the advance of Methodism had been "checked" and its " advance column forced back," the fearful conclusions of the Bishops' address would be justi fied. But the statistics, covering 125 years, show seventeen other years in which there was a decrease and forty seven years in which the advance was either " checked" or " forced back a little." The years of decrease have covered the entire period of the church's history; but, with only one exception, the period without an ac tual decrease was longer immediately preceding the decrease of last year than ever before. The years in which there has been a decrease are: Year. Decrease.! Year. Decrease. 177S *73 ; 1845 37,769 1780 73 I 1840 170 1.035 I 1847 .... 12.711 1705 . 0.317 ' 1861 1.924 1790 3.027 j 1882 . 45.617 1814 3.178 i 1863 19.512 1815 36 I 1864 1,608 1826 1.840 1 1881 29,818 1840 60,361 1899 21,934 The great decrease of nearly half a million in 1840 was due to the division of the church on the slavery question and to the organization of the Metho dist Episcopal Church, South. The decrease iu 1801 to 1804 was doc to the war. But the decrease of other years was due to natural causes. In four years it was actually larger than in 1599, and in others where the fig ures are small the decrease was a great deal larger relatively than last year. That such actual decrease, or a de crease in the annual increase, is not a cause for alarm to Methodists is shown by the statistics of the last ten years. In 1881) the increase in membership was 80,352. The next year, 1800, the increase was only 47,400, a decrease in increase of 37,000. The following year, 1801, the increase advanced to 102,506. Then came a year of de cline, and the increase fell off to 02,- 940. The next year showed an in crease of 81,426. The year following, 1804, the increase reached 157,686, the highest point in twenty-five years, and it has been exceeded only once in the history of the church —in 1868, when increase was 200,034. It is not surpris ing that the increase of 1804 should be followed by years of decline, but the annual increase continued large, being 76,500 in 1805, 65,131 in 1806, 54,713 in 1897, and 37,035 in 1808. Years of great increase, like 1868 and 1804, usually add to the membership the names of many who afterward withdraw or are dropped when the rolls are pruned. They had joined on probation, and hcucc were counted in the annual statistics, but they had not become full members at the end of their six months' probation, and in course of time, by their own indiffer ence or inaction, ceased to be even probationary members. The causes which Mr. Mills assigned for the decrease —secularization of the ministry and higher criticism—may be operating to diminish the zeal and evangelistic power of the Methodist Church, but the statistics of the church do not of themselves justify the conclusion, nor are they an occa sion for alarm. Indeed, if the num ber of rei>orts of revivals and acces sions in the Methodist papers arc a safe guide, the indications are that the year 1000 will show a considerable increase instead of decrease in mem bership. There was a mystic calm in the air the other night. The gentle breaking of the waves upon the beacli at Gray's Harbor could be distinctly heard and the sound of the singing of the pines was borne down into the valley of the Puyallup. From the snow-capped mountain tops the cool, pure breezes were gently wafted until they mingled with the rose-scented zephyrs of Puget Sound. Everybody was out of doors bathing in the moonlight and filling his lungs with the balsam im pregnated ozone from the summit of the Cascades, and with the invigorat- The Solo By Ltvi. Tacotna News. ing salt-saturated air from the shim mering Sound. Mere existence was a delight, Suddenly there was a supernatural hush and then clear and strong, rising over and above the mountains, came the sound of a sweet tenor voice. There was some thing pathetic iti its parody of the na tional anthem, for the words were these: My Country 'tis of thee, sweet Xand of Xiberty, Of thee I siug. Xaml of my fenatorial hope, Xand of my bank's good soap; What woe dotli me betide With Wilson in King. It was the voice of Hon. Levi Ankeny over at Walla Walla. With banjo in hand he was under the win dow of Mrs. Ankeny, giving soulful voice to his thoughts. The sttirs twinkled their approval, the moon winked his left eye and the people of Taeoma hastened indoors to escape the possible suspicion of eaves dropping. THE BOSS'S IMPUDENCE Why There is No Love Lost Between Dewey and Hanna. A late Washington dispatch shows how Mark Hanna craftily handicap ped Admiral Dewey regarding any glimmering idea he might have enter tained regarding tlie Presidency. " Dewcv, what shall I tell these blankcty blank newspaper men when they ask me whether you are going to be a candidate for President?" This is what Senator Hanna said to Admiral Dewey at a reception at the White House last fall. The Admiral was talking to a num ber of gentlemen, including a Senator or two, and some other high officials. The President sat near by. Senator Hanna came up and spoke to the Ad miral loudly, almost roughly. The Admiral was at a loss to know what to say, and pretended not to hear. After waiting a minute Senator Hanna said again, in a louder voice: "Dewey, what shall I tell the blank ety blank newspaper men when they ask mo if you are going to be a candi date for PresidcntT" The attention of everybody in the room was attracted Admiral Dewey objected to being questioned in that manner, but in order to relieve him self from further embarrassment, re plied: "Oh, tell them I will not be a candidate." Next morning every newspaper in the country had a Washington dis patch saying that Admiral Dewey would not be a candidate for Presi dent. Admiral Dowey resented this treat ment. He was taken at a disadvant age, and lie did not think it right that what he had said at a private re ception should be treated as a public announcement. This is one reason for Admiral Dewey's dislike of Senator Hanna. It is also the real story of the episode, concerning which some badly mixed despatches hare been printed. The World, which gives this state ment, gets its in'orination from a gen tleman who was present. Bryan Drops Silver. At a banquet given by the Sun flower league, a Democratic organiza tion, at Witchita, Kansas, April 24, Colonel William Jennings Bryan, in the course of his banquet speech said : " The public wouders why I have dropped the silver question. New measures are resting upon us; but I shall never drop the silver question until the little coteries of English financiers cease to meet in secret and plan the laws of this country. The difference between this campaign and that of '9B is that the matters of trusts and imperialism have been in jected and that the East becomes educated on the Bilver question. The East no longer regards populists as anarchists, but has come to respect them." An Observing Saint. Collier's Weekly. Smirking up to his mother one day, Tommy said: " Ma, haven't I been a good boy since I began going to Sunday scool?" "Yes, my lamb," answered the mother, fondly. "And you trust me now, don't you, ma?" " Yes, darling." " Then what makes you keep the mince pies locked up in the pantry, the same as ever?" Juit What She Said. Philadelphia Prow.

He asked me if I'd be very angry if he I kissed me. A PATHETIC INCIDENT. A Dying Woman's Invocation for the Demo' cratic Leader. A Phoenix, Arizona, dispatch to the New York World: " May the Lord be gracious to you; may your estate 011 earth be the highest the people can give; may God preserve you to be of the greatest service to your country." This was the invocation under which William Jennings Bryan bowed his head while in Phoenix and under the stimulus oi which he made one of the strongest speeches ever heard from him. The blessings came from a woman who knew she was near the grave. She is a Catholic of exceptional de voutness. "It was as though word has come from on high to one whom God had destined for the highest service, and I think it was so acceptable by Colonel Bryan," said one who witnessed the scene. Mrs. Thomas K. I)alton, wife of a leading Democrat, is of middle age and was once prominent 111 society, a woman of remarkably attractive presence and of strong mind and influ ence. A year ago she was told that she was incurably affected by an internal cancer. During the past few weeks she has failed rapidly till she is now little more than a shadow. She has taken the keenest interest in tlie campaigns and travels of the Democratic leader, and to him, when he came to Phoenix, she sent word, re questing a visit. The request came while Mr. Bryan's apartments were thronged, but he promptly responded. When he entered the room where the sufferer lay she met him with a long and puzzled look, and with the exclamation, ' Why, Mr. Bryan, you look very much like McKinley," The answer was quick. "Madame, I assure you the resemblance is en tirely external." Mrs. Dalton described her pleasure in meeting one she deemed so noble in purpose and so high in character and whom she had admired for the steadfastness of his aim. The visitor responded briefly and with tenderest feeling and then came the blessing while every head was bowed. " I will never sec you again," said she, " and I wish you to know you have given me one of the last pleas ures I shall know. God bless you and your work." Bryan accepted from his stricken hostess a bouquet, from which he se lected a single flower to hand back to the donor. Then, with tear-filled eyes he bade her adieu. How different is this from the treat ment accorded to the old lady in one of the smaller cities in California— Santa Barbara, we believe—by Presi dent Harrison, during his visit to this coast a few years ago. As the proces sion passed her residence, she toddled down the pathway to her gate, with a bouquet of flowers poised in her hand to throw into the carriage of the Pres dent. Soon as his eye caught the figure of the old lady and her pose in dicated her intent, Mr. Harrison shouted in a gruff voice " Woman, don't throw those flowers!" Instantly her look of joy and elation changed to the deepest expression of dismay and chagrin, and with face aflame and tears flowing from her aged eyes, she turned to re-enter her dwelling. There were no cheers by the pogulace, and doubtless this episode indellibly im pressed upon the brain of all specta tors that power and position have very little to do with moulding the nature of man, and that a brute may till the highest office in the land and wait only some such opportunity for ex posure of his true nature. Youthful Diplomacy. Catholic Standard anil Times. Mother (with conviction) —Johnny, you took those preserves from the pantry. Johnny (shrewdly)— Why, ma, you never saw me do anything of the kind. Mother—Perhaps I didn't see you, but you did it, and I want you to tell mc the truth. (After a long pause). Come! Why don't you answer? Johnny—Ma, children should be seen and not beard. DI'RIKG a speech at Syracuse, New York, David Bennett Hill told apoliti cal secret of importance, he said: " Permit mc to say, in this connec tion, that a plank favoring an amend ment to the Constitution, providing for the election of United States Senators by the people was in the original draft of the Chicago platform in 189G, but was stricken therefrom by the sub committee on resolutions against my earnest protest.." SHE —Yes, a woman's first duty is to her husband. He—What's a man's first duty? She —Why, to become the husband of some nice girl, of course. THE REPUTATION ESTABLISHED. The Embarrassing Experience of a Georgia Senator. As Senator Alexander Stevens Clay of Georgia was walking across Capitol Park one day last week, on his way to the Congressional library, a big, strap ping woman, well dressed and some what excited, stepped in front of him and said: "Why Senator Clay, I'm glad to see you. Now you can go and get me the place you promised me. I'm Mrs. Williams from Marietta, your town, you know." " I can't get you a place now," the Senator replied. Tlie woman insisted. " But I can't get you a place off hand," the Senator persisted. The woman reached into her pocket and took out a roll of hills. "O, that's all right," she said. " I know what you want. Here's SIOO I'll give you if you will get me a place." " What do you mean, madam?" asked the Senator stern I)'. "O, you can all be nought. Take the money now and get nie a place." Senator Clay was furious. " Woman," he shouted, " this is an insult! Get out of my path." Instead of getting out of the Sena tor's path the woman threw her arms around his neck and hugged him vig orously. Senator Clay had to use all his strength to unfasten her arms, and then he turned and ran back toward the capitol, leaving his hat on the grass. —♦ ♦ Overlooked by Mr. Ankeny. It was a concise and on the whole pretty good platform that the Repub licans adopted at the State Conven tion at Ellensburg, but they over looked one or two points, says the Ta conra AY its. The Democrats of Penn sylvania took a little more time to look over the situation, and not hav ing a thought single to personal re venge, incorporated two planks that ought to have been in the Washington Republican platform. Here is their ph.iform summarized: We declare in favor of— An interoceanic canal controlled and protected by this country. No furtner surrender of Alaskan territory. Fortitieation of strategic positions on the Pacific. No entangling alliance with Eng land or other countries, secret or open. Free trade with Porto Rico. Independence of Cuba. Home rule for the Philippine isl ands. No subject peoples. No colonial dependencies. Eternal opposition to trusts. A vigorous foreign policy. And an income tax. Right here, almost on the borders of Alaska, the Washington Republi cans overlooked the essentially impor tant negotiations for a surrender of Alaskan territory and the necessity for the further fortification of strategic positions on the Pacific. M. Ankeny, who dominated the El lensburg convention, should telegraph the Pennsylvania Democrats and ask for a loan of those two important planks for his platform. "MY dear, began the extravagant young wife, " I've got several things 1 want to talk to you about." "Ah! that's a relief," exclaimed the husband. " What is?" "To be assured that you've got the things you want to talk about. You generally discourse upon the things you need. MR. Stubb (reading)—" The sermon of the returned missionary struck a chord in every heart, and many so ciety women gave in their diamonds for the heathen." Mrs. Stubb—"They might just as well have given paste diamonds, John. The heathen could never tell the difference." PRETORIA, the capital of the Trans vaal, is said to be a veritable city of roses. The town nestles among hedges of roses, which grow every where in wild profusion. It is fair to assume, however, that " Oom Paul" doesn't do much reclining 011 beds of them at present. UNDER the title of " Two Souls with but a Single Thought," the New York Tribune published a cartoon repre senting Bryan and McKinlev painting on bulletin boards the legend "Wanted, a Running Mate." McKinley is use ing gold and Bryan silver paint. Bmt, the /f The Kind You Haw Always Bogtt Miss Jones—lt seems to me that all the nicest men are married.
