Going Some.
The big Bolin-Hall mill which
was thoroughly overhauled last
month is enjoying a remarbably
good business these days. The
business was established here last
fall by J. R. Bolin and Robert
Hall, who had other interests here
at the time. From the very first
tho business has been a successful
one, and now the mill U running
day and night with a double shift
of men trying to keep from getting
too far behind in filling orders.
This is the only flour mill on the
Rock Island between Pratt and
Dalhart, so a great territory is
open to the mill here. By putting
out an excellent flour at a fair
price the business has increased by
leaps and bounds, so that right
now, enough orders are piled up to
keep the mill running day and
night during the entire month of
August, While there is but little
wheat coming in, it is of an exel
lent quality. Some old wheat is
still coming in and the mill is pay
ing a premium for this, as it is
the most desirable for milling

Lot Only Your Affeotlonate and Cheei

Your Homo.
The comfort and happiness of
home and home intercourse dopend
very much on the kindly and affeo
tlonate training of the voice. Trou
ble, and care,- and vexation will and
most, of course, come, but let them
not creep into your voices : Let only
your kindlier and happier feelingi
be vocal in your homes. Let them
be so if for no other reason, for the
little children's sake. These sensi
tive little beings are exceedingly sus
ceptible to the tones. Let us have
consideration for them. Af we ad
vance in years our life becomes more
Interior. We are abstracted from oub
ward scenes and sounds. ; We think,
we reflect, we begin gradually to deal
with the past as we have formerly
lived in the present Our ear grows
dull to external sounds I It is
turned inward and listens chiefly to
the echoes of past voices. We catch
no more the merry laughter of the
children. We hear no more notes of
the morning bird. The brook that
used to prattle so gayly to us rushes
by unheeded we have forgotten to
bear such things. But little children,
remember, sensitively hear them all
Mark how at every sound the young

And thus with equal sensitiveness
does it catch the tones of human
voices. How were It possible that
the sharp and hasty word, the fret
ful and complaining tone, should not
startle and pain, even depress, the
sensitive little being, whose harp of
life, so gently and delicately strung,
vibrating ever to the gentle breeze
and thrilling sensitively ever to the
tones of such voices as sweep across

spoken, then, in oar homes.

that just why the old hotels are be

have outlived them, as it were. Here
we have good music in ,the evening,
and I was surprised to see how men
and women linger about in little

down at Garden City, which is a
very good atmosphere for a hotel, I ;
It is a fact that the service and
surroundings in the present day ho
tel are far out of proportion to the
advance in expense. For instance,
stop at a country hotel where you
pay the same price as in the city and
note the difference in service and
convenience. It is the prototype of
the old city hotel. The adoption of
the European plan has been largely
responsible for the advance in con
Alexander, Caesar and Napoleon Were

The three greatest generals the

you think," he said, "that if I had
not been general-in-chief and tho in

thrown myself into the study of the
exact sciences; my path would have
been that of Galileo and Newton;

my great enterprises, I should have
highly distinguished myself also in
