E A. WINSTANLEY 134 Higgins Avenue Missoula Montana THE IDEAL VILLAGE, Woman Describes a Town That Would Appeal to One's Fancy. THE MARKET A BIG FEATURE. It Should Be Built In Center of the Town and Should Carry a Supply of Good Substantial Foods — School I house and Clubhouse Necessary. I lu a talk before tbe Civic club of 1 Arlington, N. J., Mrs. Mary l'attison. president of the New Jersey Woman's I Federated Clubs, pictured the ideal j Village in the following manner: "Let us take au imaginary journey." she said, "to a slightly elevated spot j somewhere and buinl an ideal village j or town. Let there be a clean, wide I sweep of greensward shaded with j trees and cut with winding roads, a i few hills and a cool, picturesque valley to one side, through which a clear, happy rivulet curls its way uutaiuted with sewage and disease carrying insects and unspoiled by the dumps j of refuse usually deposited along such banks. Let us see there instead grass, flowers and birds. "On "one of these hills near by we find a roomy sohoolhouse. than which nothing better is known, where the children are being educated in the real things of life, in common sense and in industrial and organic matters, with no danger of forced mentality. "Here we find usefulness with beau ty of method. As a result horse or coarse play and disrespect are un known. Individual and careful think ing are encouraged, and appreciation is developed, with charm of mau tic and the cultivation of the healthiest bodies. "In the center of the town, near a few choice shops and offices, we Hud an airy and well built market where only the best and purest foods can be bought, not necessarily luxuries, but the substantial varieties that make blood and muscle strong and of good quality—a place where it is not suiU cient to simply label the contents of packages, but where it is necessary to tell which beefsteak has had its juice extracted, what fish and fowl have beeu embalmed, what animals died m disease and what fruit has had its natural fermentation stopped by the use of preservatives. "It is, in fact, a place to buy food where one is not in danger of one's life or. worse, one's health at every turn. "Let us perhaps build two churches in our beautiful village, although that may be one too many, hut let there be one opening the gate of heaven through the intellectual door or under the portal of the understanding where reason reigns and science proves. Then a little farther on let us find another, bringing God on earth through the aid of the emotions, with the heart as the knower and the senses trained to love. Let them both be beautiful, hut let us go first to one and then the other till in the future they unite. "Our community is made up of homes, cheerful, normal, happy homes. Individual iu expression, co-operate in management and lovely in design, where the atmosphere is the guilding element, where nothing is held that gives more trouble tliau worth, where harmony, health and happiness leave not a crevice for hell to peek through. "And now a little walk to the right, ami opposite the park we are led to the village clubhouse, a fine pleasure edifice equipped for all ages, it is a place where pluy and gymnastics are supervised, a place for games of ail sorts, with rooms for music, art, danc ing, etc., and for that foolish frivolity without which society would lose its charms. "May we keep our hand to the wheel and help to usher in the new village home if not in detail, at least iu essence—a home where one might free the spirit by just living, where doctors and lawyers are the minimum in number and teachers are the maxi mum, a place where only health is known aud where the whole air thrills with life." Town Named Peculiar. " *Nam< it something peculiar.' was j the closing phrase iu a letter we re j ceived from the postofiice department 1 a score of years ago when half a d.oz j en names had been suggested anil j were all turned down by the depart ment for our little town iu Cass coun ty, Mo.." said a leading grain and stock man of that place. "Well, to make a long story short, we took the word 'peculiar' and sent it back to the postofiice department. They approved it. and 'Peculiar' we 1 named it. and it lias beeu known as that ever since. j "We have a good town aud don't I mind how many jokes people crack at 1 our expense. The more they talk ' about us the faster we grow." Be a Friend of Home. When you want to buy an article ot merchandise buy it of a reputable home dealer that the profit may re main to enrich the community. Send your money abroad only for what you cannot purchase at home.

Here is a lesson in the advertising line from the Mail Order Journal: There was a man in our town who thought he was wondrous wise. He swore by ail the fabled gods that he'd never advertise. But, alas, he advertised, and thereby hangs a tale. His ad. was set In nonpareil and headed "Sheriff's Sale." The Ancient Brahmans. The Brahmans were the lawxcrs. priests, professors, the sole instnc le I class, the sole authorities on taste. morality, the sole depositaries of what ever stood in the place of science. Ev erybody was to minister unto them, everybody to give way to them. I lie Brahman was above the law. He was "not to lie subjected to corporal pun ishment. must not be imprisoned or fined or exiled or reviled." in the law of the Vishnu it was written: "The Brahmans sustain tiie world. It is by the favor of the Brahmans that i lie gods reside in heaven." Under Kng lish rule and ideas the ancient caste has lost some of its prestige, but is still a forcible reminder of its former gran deur.—New York American. Not Needed. According to the London Saturday Review, a celebrated surgeon me: a young otliecr in Piccadilly one day and greeted him with surprise. "Well. I am pleased to see you! I am surpris ed!

What is probably the most extraor dinary plant ever discovered in South America is an orchid that takes a drink whenever it feels thirsty by let ting down a tube into the water, the tube when not in use being coiled up on top of the plant.

"J. W. Murphy, Glenwood, Iowa. That is the world's record price for apples. All the news papers reported it—it further opened the eyes of planters everywhere. Only surpassing quality—complete apple supremacy could command such a price. Stark Delicious is all that and more. If you have not yet planted Delicious or if your plantings of it have been small, make a big order for it this spring— don't wait another season. It is the greatest profit-producer in the whole list of apples—you simply can't afford not to have it in your orchard. Don't be deceived by unscrupulous nurserymen offering you Delicious. There is but one Delicious and that is Stark Delicious—owned, controled and sold only by us. Send your order early—our immense stock will he over sold before the end of the season. Black Ben Wins Carload Premium Black Ben won the $500.00 carload premium at the Denver National Apple Show. Here's a telegram: At National Apple Show just closed five hundred dollar carload premium was awarded a car of Black Ben apples grown on one hundred sixty Stark Trees at Fruita, Colorado. (Signed) Dr. S. T.^ Green, President Fruita Chamber of Commerce. Have you Black Ben in your orchard? If not get it in this spring—plant largely of it. As a commercial sort it is unsur passed, a sure, regular producer of handsome profits. It sold this year at the Wenatchee Wash., Fruit-Grower's Ass'n sale, at the same price as Jonathan—$2.00 per box, while Ben Davis brought only $1.40, Gano $1.50 and Mo. Pippin $1.50. You positively cannot make a mistake on Black Ben—plunt it largely—you'll never regret it. As a filler for Spitzenburg, Newtown, Jonathan, Delicious, etc., it is excellent. Our stock of Black Ben is immense—finer trees never grew. Get your order in early. From a commercial standpoint I fully and heartily recommend Delicious, Black Ben and Stayman Winesap as three of the finest varieties for commercial orchard planting. The eating qualities of Delicious and Stayman Winesap are superior to any other table apple while Black Ben is the apple for the masses. The keeping qualities of all three varieties are excellent. I came to the United States Land and Irrigation Exposition at the Coliseum, Chicago, with the Wenatchee Commercial Club Exhibit and have sold a number of boxes of Stark Delicious at $10.00 per box. This, I think, speaks well for them.—C. W. Wilrneroth, Wenatchee, Wash. Note: Mr. Wilrneroth spent 32 years on South Water St., Chicago as an apple commission man. He probably is the best posted apple man in the country.—Stark Bro's. Stark Early Elberta A great peach for western growers. Originated in Utah. A yellow free-stone ripening with Carmen but hardier and better than Elberta and a better shipper. Do what the "Peach King" is doing—plant it commercially this spring. When they fruit you will want more. Stark Early Elberta will increase peach-orchard profits where ever planted. I believe Stark Early Elberta is one of the best varieties introduced since the first Elberta came. It will no doubt play an important part in sections such as we have here where growers do not want too many varieties but must have early and late kinds. In Early Elberta one has all the good qualities of Elberta and the additional feature of curly ripening.—E. H. Favor, Horticulturist, Davis County, Utah. General Stock We never grew a finer or larger stock of all the populai western varieties than we are offering this spring. Tree perfection is a description of every tree, and remember—wo positively ussure complete satisfaction. Most of the country'« reliable nurseries are already sold out. The demand is ten times greater than the supply. We have the stock to fill every order for all sorts and the kind of stock that will make the buyer our lusting friend. But early buying is wise buying. It il to your advantage to older promptly. Increase your orchard profits—do it by planting the splendid tested special sorts of Stark Trees. Begin now—don't wail until next season. Plant now and be that much nearer a big profit paying crop thun you would be by waiting 6 month« or a year.

The Way He Got the Answer. Railway porters iu the town of Crewe seem to have a curious habit of answering the question you do not ask them. The experience of a corre spondent of the Manchester Guardian is a case in point. At the station en trance he asked. "When is the next train to Manchester?" The reply was. "Platform fi." He went to platform 5 and repeated his question, and the answer was. "Other end of the plat form." Yet again lie asked. "When is the next train to Manchester?" and go "First train after the next on th; ; side." in desperation he altered tIn form of the question to, "Where shall I get the Manchester train?" And then he got the reply he had wnntc ! all the time—"Six twenty-five, sir." Titles In Plenty. Most members of the house of lords I have more than one title.

Choosing Colors Fcr Houses. The safe colors for a house besides red are white, gray, yellow and brown, says a writer in Scribner's. Yellow or gray, witli white trimmings, suits many a plain pitch roofed or square colonial house. Grays and browns are good for ugly nondescript ones, the grays always being pleasanter on the yellow shades than on cold blue tones. M bite suggests the formal type again. It is very good color for a country house, showing it up from a distance in fascinating glimpses, for it needs trees about it and flowers to sparkle against its walls. Such a house will be attractive when the leaves are gone from the trees, for the bare boughs will serve to soften the effect. Meant What It Said. "No," said the impecunious one, "you can't believe all that you see in the newspapers." "Are you prepared to specify?" the other man asked. "1 am. I saw a statement in the financial columns that money was easy, but when I tried to negotiate a loan I found that the reverse was true." "You misunderstood the paragraph It didn't say the people were easy." Asking the Captain. A very common inquiry of sea cap tains is. "Where is the nearest land?" One harassed captain on being asked this question for about the fiftieth time pointed over the vessel's side and blandly replied. "Madam, the nearest land is at the bottom of the sen."
