The complaint sounded in the artiole
given below applies particularly to
this section of the country where fae
small country hotel is common.
The travelers of this state will no
doubt be of the same opinion asj
Charles Edmuni Baker, editor of the
Sample Case. Mr. Baker has the
lowing to say about the country hotel
and its relation to travelers:
How many times have commercial
travelers, stopping at the smaller
country hotels, wished in their hearts
that the proprietors would cut out
their elaborate imitation of the big
city hotels and run their houses on a
simpler and more suitable plan. How
much pleanter it would be to sty down

meat or chicken, fresh vegetables,
coffee and some simple wholesome
dessert, like country pie, than to have
twenty dinky little side disb.es, each
filled with a dab of some canned stuff
and all to make a show.
Along in the hottest days of sum
mer, when a fellow wants very little
meat, and pletny of green seasonable
vegetables, he finds en the table old
potatoes and canned beans or peas,
jwith perhaps stewed prunes for des
sert. If you protest to the landlord
I about it he will say "We can't get
[them." Maybe at that very moment
there is within a stone's throw of the

I man had any ambition, instead of wait
ing for some one to grow his season
able green stuff for him he would
get help together and work off some
if his surplus flesh by growing these
things himself. I know one or two
places where this is done, and they
are like the shadow of a great rock in
a weary land. You get your feet un
der their tables once, and you begin
to think it would be a good idea if
could bring the wife and babies
out there and spend the summer.
Besides getting a big reputation for
his hotel among the best patrons there
is a whole lot of profit for the hotel
man who does his own gardening or
farming. Then if he gets enough
ahead to provide a farm and raise his
own chickens and pairy products as

make upon the head the character of

"On the eighth day you will find the

say: 'Give me that bottle 1 will water

you will persist in declining until he
shall stretch forth bis hand and show
you the same figure which you have
traced upon the bead suspended from
the tips of his fingers. In this case
you may be assured that it is really
the spirit of the head, because another
might take you unawares, which
would bring you evil. and. further,
jour operation would be unfruitful.
When you have given him your vial
he will water the bead and depart.

your beans ripe. Take them, place

yourself it is good. Do the same with
