VOU'VE been reading a lot
' , i lately about wear and wear- ; ability of paint; and there are paints that do have these qualities., , But there's one paint that has more than these, for it possesses the peculiar quality of sustained wear, namely the Mound City Horse Shoe Brand; the paint with the life in it; the paint that's made of honest Lead and honest Zinc and Pure Aged Linseed Oil; the paint that wears and looks better than Lead. Horse Shoe- Brand Paint, all colors, always gives a clear, beautiful, living look to the fin ished job. Never bleary, or muddy, or gummy; none of that dead, dull appearance. Then, too, it pays to come to a store where they are able to advise you and help you to get the most good out of paint. If you read this ad. you will know where such a store is right in this very town. Besides the House Paint, there's a Horse Shoe Paint for every purpose : Floor Paint, Barn and Roof Paint, Buggy Paint, To-Wauk-On Stain, Screen Paint, Wagon and Implement Paint, what you want for whatever you want to put it on. Let's tell you about one of these Horse Shoe Brand Specialties : Floor Paint : Horse Shoe Brand Floor Paint is the best floor paint we know anything about, for the reason that the more you wash it the harder it gets, like cement. Wears like concrete and yet keeps alive all the vivid color that it had when first applied. So, when you're ready for paint that is paint, and does what good paint ought to do, here's the place and here's the store that sells it. You can trust the paint and you can trust the store ; two things -worth remembering. McCurdv Lumber Co. OOURTESY IN THE STREET CAR. Something of a Reversal of the General Rule. . "Do you suppose that's an effect of the recent agitation of women's rights?" asked the man, Indicating with a nod of his bead a scone that was taking place In an "L" car in the homeward rush. His companion looked and saw a slender, handsomely gowned woman offer her seat to a young man who, in the crush, , was standing in front of her and was car rying an, armful of large, heavy books. The young man looked rather em barrassed and bravely declined with a pleasant little smile, which was all he could accomplish In lieu of rais ing his hat with his heavily incum bered hands. "Well, then," said the lady com posedly, resuming her scat, "let me hold the books in my lap." "That would certainly be kind, if you don't mind," consented the youth, relinquishing his load; and when the lady reached her station, leaving her seat to him, he thanked her for her thoughtfulness with fully as much gratitude as a woman would have expressed for a similar courtesy from a man perhaps with more apprecia tion, the experience being more rare. AT HARVARD FIFTY YEAR8 AGO. N. 8. Shaler Tells Us of the Life of a 8enlor. He was a senior in Harvard college and had a well-deserved name for scholarship In the classics, as well as for a miscellaneous assortment of tal ents and knowledge. He was reputed to be the best player of the game of checkers in the country; knew the political history of the United States amazingly well; was learned In pugil ism, having at his tongue's end the story of all the prize-fights of recent times; withal he was the merriest lit tle man I ever seen. I well recall my first morning with him, when, after go ing over the best of what I could and could not do, he asked me if I could box. I pleaded guilty to some knowl edge of that Ignoble art. At that time I had not learned of his Interest in it, and thought that I would be lowered in his eyes by the confession. To my surprise, Indeed to my horror, for I had a swordsman's contempt for the business, he insisted on my having a bout with him at once. N. S. Shaler'a Autobiography, in the Atlantic.

Many a plain woman is redeemed by fine eyes; many a pretty face spoiled by red-rimmed, dull, lusterless eyes. But at the same time a great deal may be done to make even unpromising eyes clear and attractive, to render eyes which are only passably pretty really beautiful. Attention to the general health will go far to make the eyes clear and bright and prevent fatigue, even when they are called upon to do a great deal of work. Have you never noticed the dull eyes of a person afflicted with dyspep sia, the yellow tinge of overfeeding and neglected liver; the lusterless eyes of the woman who sleeps In an ill-ventilated room, who takes no ex ercise and spends all her spare time reading novels over the Are? When It's a Nude. "The Bather" was the title of the young painter's picture, the first that he had ever shown. It hnng, unnoticed, on the line. "But," said his friend, "you have done nothing to draw a crowd!" "I've done my best work," said the young painter. "Fudge," was the retort. "Work draws, but there are better magnets.

When a horse Is released from hi stall during a fire, says a technical paper, he will not leave the stable, for the stall is the only place In which he believes himself to be safe. A new patented device, which consists of a pipe running through the stall to the outside of the stable, Is designed to cure this. In case of fire a turn of a handle brings a hose nozzle Into posi tlon and a stream of water pours over the head and shoulders of the horse, which drives him Into the , gangway, from which it becomes a comparative ly easy matter to lead him Into the street. At One 8 hot. A sportsman of great Imaginative gifts and fond of telling his exploits, related that at one shot he had brought down two partridges and a hare. His explanation was that although be had only hit one partridge the bird in fall Ing had clutched at another partridge and brought that to earth entangled in its claws. "But how about the hare?" he was asked. "Oh!" was the calm reply, "my gun kicked and knocked me backward and I fell on the hare as it ran past." The Sketch. Jubccribo to the Globe-Republican Forgot.

The annual sersion f the Ford county Normal Institute will be held at Dodite City bPKlnnlng on Monday, Judo 7tb All the teachers of Ford county, and all those who expect, to become teachers are cordially invited to be present on the very first day of the session. Do not wait for a week before you enroll. The organization Is fairly completed now, and the work will be as i ffective at the beginning as on the last day. The daily proeram will' be found In the back part of the Irstitute announce ment, which will be sent out about May 15th. As s large part of tmr teaching foroe is recruited from the ranks of the be ginner or those who have bad but little experience, an effort will be made to direct the instruction so as to be tie trrenteat good to tills class of teachers. We would suggest that the teacher limit himself to five subjects, that the number of classes mav be reduced to the mini mum, thus affording a longer period for recitation and greater ifflolency in Instruction. In a circular letter from the state superintendent be has Intimated that the examination In Physics will be even more elementary than k has been In the past. I his Ins been done In the hope that more emphasis may be placed upon the important subject of English Liter ature. A teacher who lacks a speaking acquaintance with the best writers ol our language can not be a real success In the scnoolroom. A lairly extensive know, ledge or literature is necessary to teauu reading with any degree of success. Therefore we think It would be better to give a little lees ttt ntlon to bare and lifeless facts, and beetow greater thought on the problem' of life, Its beautiet snd possibilities and on human nature and on human action as revealed to us In literature. The following classics will be ued at 'he Institute: Hiawatha. Snow-Bound, Evangeline, Kip Van Winkle, and Leg end of Sleepy Hollow. These classics may be obtained of The Oivllle Brewer Pub. Co., Chicago, III., at five cents each. The Normal Intllute course of study may be bad by calling at my office on Saturday. Hesse do not ask me to send you the course of study without tending ten cents to cover postage.
