prices.

One of the curious signs of the
times is that every politician who hap
pens to own an acre of ground has
suddenly developed an intense long
ing to be known as a farmer, and it
is said that some of these individuals
are actually spending much time
standing barheaded in the sunshine in
order to tan their complexions into
keeping with their possessions; all of
which is a flattering acknowledegment
of the rapidly increasing power of the
farmers' organizations in this coun
try. Rev. Hughes again held his outdoor
services last Sunday evening near the
post office, which was very largely
attended. Remember and go tomor

Art Department
The Art Department has its usual
summer overflow. Almost everv stu
dent is carrying a box of materials.
The work is being made very pract
ical. Art projects are given that may
be used in the school room rural or
city.
The decided interest shown in Art
is very encouraging. The work is far
reaching.
The rural or city teacher who
brings art work into the school room
has a far reaching influence. This
study creates an interest that usually
results in departmental work being
done in this subject.
Very few subjects are not in
fluenced by visualization, and art
teaches the students to see things.
No doubt the two hundred twenty
art students will find beauties in
nature, never realized before. Leader.

First Called "Vertical Railway."
It was not until the early '70s that
the "vertical railway" was introduced
in England,' the first "lift" bein in
stalled in Albert bull and to ride in
this the passengers were required to
pay a fee of 1 penny. Today, the "lift"
is nothing like so common in Europe
as the "elevator," which is our- name
for the thing, is in the United States.
One reason for this is that the. United
-States is the birthplace of the sky
scraper, and high buildings, as build--iiig
heights are measured In America,
are infrequent in Europ,
Girls' Bungalow

iata Street has been opened again as

arranged for light housekeeping, and
the large enclosed porch makes a cool
and comfortable study place.

The Impossible.
A Kansas judge says a minimum
length of courtship should be fixed by
law to prevent hasty marriages. The
judge may know a lot about law and
the power of the courts and what
ought to be done to regulate' society,
but it's a cinch he doesn't know
much about the impossibility of pre
venting from getting married two
people who have made up their minds
to marry.
Whole Truth About Genius.
A great idea grows like a flower. It
changes. In its evolution it leaves
crudity and imperfection behind. It
assumes a new form, more pleasing in
its outline and more striking in its
beauty, as it is molded into a thing
of deathless energy. An idea which
is different to all else is a thing of
wonder if It is true. It is original
thought, and this is all that genius is.
"As Short as It Is Violent."
"Woman's grief is like a summer
storm, short as it Is violent." The
foregoing quotation is credited to
Joanna Baillie. a Scotch dramatist and
poet. She wrote "Plays on the Pas
siens," in which she delineates the
principal passions of the mind, each
passion being made the subject of a
trmredy and a comedy. She died in
ism.
Drilling Glass.
Make a solution of one ounce of cam
phor, one and 'one-half ounces spirits
of turpentine and three drams of
ether.. Keep the end of the drilling
tool wet with this solution. After the
point comes through to the other side,
put the glass in water and then pro
ceed more slowly or drill from other
side.
Dog Lover Never All. Bad.
He who loves a dog may not be all
he should be In the qualities of man
hood, but you may safely bet money
on it that there is, nevertheless, some
thing In him that merits respect, albeit
sometimes to be searched 'for. The
dog gets nearer to the human heart
than any other of earth's unhuman
habitants.
Peculiar Racial Resemblance. -
There are a great many points of re
semblance between the Mongolian and
the, American Indian. They extend to
personal and even religious observ
ances, notwithstanding the fact that
the Mongols have long been converted
to Lamaism; one of the most exacting
and intolerant of religions.

For Country Roads, City Streets and
Road Patrol Work
The Avery One-Man Road Maintainer or "Road-Ra-zer"
as it is now called, is undoubtedly the best, most eco
nomical motor road maintaining machine that has as yet
been made. It operates more easily and quickly, cuts
more smoothly and does better work than any machine
on the market built for this purpose.
It is easily handled It backs up and turns around
instantly in its own tracks, which is of unusual advantage
I in this class of work.
a '
By its use country roads and city streets can' be kept
smooth and in the best possible condition at all times. It
is also an especially ideal machine where the road patrol
system of continuous maintenance is in operation a sys-
h t tern which because of its merit is rapidly coming into use.
