And by keeping a customer sold, I mean selling him an article that gives perfect and permanent satisfaction. It is this factor more than anything else that accounts for the number of Pianos I have sold in the past 18 years. I still carry and sell the same makes of Pianos, which are the Chickering, Vose & Sons, Christman, Merrill, Norris. & Hyde, and the Vose ' & Sons Player. If you are contemplating buying a Piano, come to my store and talk the matter over. Every piano fully guaranteed, backed by firms financially responsible.

Floral highways are being established in Kansas to the memory of the soldiers who laid down their lives in the Spanish American war. The memorial highways will be lined on each side with Ifowers of great range of size and colors, and those 'who pass and repass along the roads will have brilliant and fragrant re minders that republics are not ungrate ful. The movement started at a meet ing recently in Parsons. Kan., between State Commander (Vandal! and Depart ment Chaplain Philip Zimmerman of the Spanish 'war veterans. The Woman's Auxiliary will have di rect charge of the work, which will be under the direction of Mrs. Cora Riney of Dodge City, who is the department I .-resident of the auxiliary. The P.oy Scouts of the slate will plant the st'ds. They will take packages of them along the roadsides. Preference will be given to flowers that will reseed themselves, so the great bulk of the initial work will not have to he repeated. Of course, it is expected that some of the stil will fail on unfriendly soil, and in such cases the P.oy Scouts will .repeat the sowing. Pa trols will, he organized to inspect the lioral lines ami keep them in seed. ' . Kansas road mans will call atten tion to the flower-decked highways.

Olher The E E WOODEN CANOE." The Real Meaning of the Word 'Mis- - soari." Dili you ever, wonder where Missouri got its name? The following, reprinted from the IJoonville, Mo., Democrat of October 22, S!7, at the time Col. Wil liam F. Switzler was the editor, ex plains it: Among certain clases of thinkers, His torians ami writers there has always exh-ted some controversy Vei)eci.ing the meaning of the word '"Missouri" and the proper, or preferable, pronouncia tion. . . . Quito a larire number of our historians and newspaper writers have taught the people- to . believe that the word "Missouri' as applied to our yreat river means "muddy water." We are well persuaded this is an error, the history of which may be thus briefly stwted: After the discovery of the upper or northern .Mississippi river by Marquette and Jolie't at the 'mouth of the Wisconsin on June 17, 1(73. these two explorers called the ureat river which stretched away hundreds of miles south to an unknown sea. "Con ception". Surrendering their frail bark canoe to the swift current of the broad river now known in all languages us the Mississippi, thev descended to the mouth of the Illinois, and then to tin; mouth of tthe Mississippi which Mar quette named "JV-kit-a-noiu." an In dian name which means "muddy water". To this fad, we think, can be reason ably referred the iiopular error that "Missouri" means '"muddy water." The nanje given the river by Mar quette prevailed until Maret's time (1712) when it was called "Mi-souri." from the fact that a tribe of Indians known as "Missouris" inhabited the country at the river's mouth, the same probahiv now embraced within the limits of St. Louis county. Mis-ouri docs not and never did piojjtrlv mean "muddy water", but "wooden -ea'ioe". It' belongs to the Illi nois dialect of the Algonquin Indian iautrtiuuc. the language w.hi was gen erally spoken (as maintained by luanv historians i by the various aboriginal tribes bit ween the Mississippi river and Delaware Pay. Pi-cussing this subject some years ago. the Brooklyn Eagle 'maintained that it is not very tliflicult to gather support for the detini tion and derivation of the word Mis souri. -Anions the Indians of Maine a b at or canoe w as cnlb d "A-m.t-Si.i."
