It creates a dead-line wherever it exists. It shows iis results even in early life when young people are at school and it is a sure indication of greater fail ure to follow unless the evil is shaken off. It is seen in every profession and calling. The phy sician, minister, lawyer, and teacher as well as the business man, farmer and mechanic, must keep abrest of the times in know ledge and adapt themselves to changing conditions or they will find customers, clients and pa tients leave them for more in dustrious and wideawake men. As a result of continued inves tigation more evidence has been gained that some railroads have granted rebates to the Standard Oil Company. Some corporations find it very hard to obey the law because they have no disposition to do so. There are many wrong ways of doing a right thing, but there is no right way of doing a wrong thing.

As we go to press we learn that Forest Gertenson had the misfortune to have his collar bone broken, while on his way home from school, at four o clock today. Just how the painful ac cident oecured we are unable to say, but it seems, that he. in com pany with several other boys, were crowding and pushing each other as they walked down the street, and in some manner one of the boys stepped aside quickly so as to let him fall, and as a re sult his collar-bone was broken. He was immediately attended by Dr. Gaines, who informes us that he is now doing very nicely.

Office over post-office, Glendive, Mont. Same Old Touch. The celebrated explorer stood on the coral reef and mopped his brow. "So white men have called here before?" he interrogated. "Well, then, my sable brother, I suppose you have felt the touch of civili ation ?" Chief Ebony grinned. "L'mph, yes!" he grunted; "touched of all the ivory and gold on the island." he Sn nmer Boarder I i 8 8 i The rolling ranges of the Blue j Ridge and die Smokies have be .-oino the camping ground of am bitious artists and art students. Amaryl was accustomed to see them pass along the road, with camp stools ami other parapher nalia. to meet youths and maidens in the pursuit of art wandering through the forests, valleys and fields, intent on hopeless and fruitless attempts to capture the glories of sunset and sunrise down a vista of far-distant peaks. When their summer boarder, therefore, unpacked an easel, paints and brushes, Amaryl was delighted. "You could make lovely pictures if you would copy the scenes around here. I will take you to see our wonderful falls and cascades, and there is nothing lovelier than Mission Valley when the moon Hoods it with light. A river runs through it like a silver thread, and the sawmill and little settlement be low the crags are wonderfully picturesque." "1 came to your mountains seeking the loveliest thing in Na ture." the artist answered am biguously. He was watching Amaryl through half-closed eyes while she transplanted some ferns. She was too intent on her task to notice his steady gaze. 'flte artist seemed to be lazy. He was content to spend hours in his room, idling, presumably; then he would wander off with Amaryl when she could spare the time in the sweet, late afternoons, to visit some beautiful spot she told him of. No one knew of the glorious canvas which he kept in a closet of his room. He would sketch for a few mo ments, then, throwing himself on some moss-covered rock by Amaryl's side, would drift into desultory descriptions of scenes of far-distant lands, or would wander into dreamy speculations on the problems of life, whose charm was accentuated by the mountain-made furniture that Su playing its Eolian harp in the pines and hemlocks overhead. Their summ boarder had of fered so large a price for the room he occupied, with its quaint mountain-made furnitur, that Su san Wilbur's sad face brightened visibly and a taint color came in to her pale cheeks. "He's a gen tleman," was Sam Wilbor's com ment when toid of it after he had come home weary from his usual work in the field. The days passed swiftly that summer, and never had Amaryl been so happy. She was always busy, but found time to take pleasant strolls with Philip Arm strong when her day's work was done. "What a pity you are not more ambitious." she said to him chid inglv. "I am sure you could paint better than all of them if you would only try," at which the ar tist laughed gayly. Many long unknown comforts crept into the cottage, and the ar tist seemed to think it only na tural to buy lavishly from all the country wagons as they came lumbering by. "Me is pleasant and kind-heart ed," was Sam's comment. "He is much mon- than that.' Sam Wil bor said, glancing down at his toil-worn hands. "He has the fine itistim ts of a man of true breeding. He ought to he wealthy; he would make a good use of his wealth." The .artist and Sam Wilbor were congenial. They had long talks together in the gloaming on the porch, and the weather-beaten toiler and former clubman saw the summer regretfully. In answer which was worldly, the Dart more: to a close most . a letter of inquiry, shrewd, kindly and artist wrote to Mrs. 'The child is divine, fair in face and form, and. oh, my friend, what sweet freshness of heart and spirit! I must he the grandeur of Nature in those vast rolling ranges, always pointing to lofty ideals and immeasurable heights, which has made Amaryl the perfect being she is.
