He never used intoxi cants or tobacco and was strict in all his habits. There is no man in Gar rard county who is better liked by all classes and all ages of people than is Uncle Clale.

(6) VHE WESTERN WOMAN. tier Instrumentality In Extending Civilization. The woman of the west is the spirit of energy. It is an inheritance from her immediate ancestors, who worked unceasingly as founders of states. She has not yet been seicd ith the weary satiety of over-civilizat.on, and feels a joy in labor and its fruits. She pre fers activity, and if life oilers her leis ure, ahe adopts a child or a career and works for her self-sought object. The double task of making a home and developing the country has bceu through her so thoroughly accom plished that, with all our vast terri tory, we have scarcely a district that might truly be spoken of as the fron tier. Hi is achievement liberates lor other uses the energy of woman, and, true to the spirit of the times, she casts about her for a career other than a domestic one. Even in the small towns of newly-set tied districts the daughters of the fam Jly do not settle down to an intermin able round of spiritless housework, but Instead start out with their brothers to their day's work as stenographers, typesetters, clerks or teachers, None are idle or fill the position of lady of leisure, for such would be companion less. 'The women with genuine business ability test it in a small boat near shore, and, meeting success, go further to venture more. The woman with a tal ent or a voice migrates to a city favor- ube for its cultivation, and the old profession of teaching has its countless aspirants, all eager to learn new meth ods. Besides all these there are the young women who would lead a life of un eventful comfort at home in large places, but who prefer the hazards ef self-support in the world to monot ony in a smaller sphere; so there comes a dny when these too join the ariny thronging to the large cities. The education of books and colleges is of primary importance in their minds just now, but by and by they will real ize that the world bestows more of its wealth (and that moans power) ou those who possess knowledge of men and an ability to recognize opportunity when it is met, and to seize it before it has fled. Another lesson that the girl of the plains must learn is that manners and dress enhance what other claims to suc cess she may possess, and are not to be despised as evidence of decadence or etfetepess. All honesty is not rude, and a polished manner enables one to meet any man on advantageous ground, while a faulty manner is acceptable only to those whose ways are equally defective. The effect of refinement and civiliza tion, but making all conform to given standards, is to reduce all to the same mold. The woman of the west need not fear that her rugged individuality will be thus obliterated, for she lives too near to nature's heart. The free dom of the plains, the large liberty of her native land, have been infused into her blood, and she will remain as she is a woman whose labor is the re sult of thought, whose opinions are tho result of honest convictions, and whoso love of self is lost in love of mankind and of country.
