Whether we ac- ! cept this or deny it, the probability is that most of us could keep well after | childhood if only we knew how. We play with our health as a boy plays at marbles. We take risks, we do foolish things, we leave undone things that we plainly ought to do. Every body has seen, for instance, the frail tenure of life held by an invalid who is always looking out and protecting herself from peril; such an invalid often outlives care-takers who are i ! j It is not doing the day's work that tells upon health and brings it to the breaking point; it is doing the bit too much that in the end causes weariness -strong and neighbors who are over flowing with robust vitality. We have -seen, too, a man of active tempera ment, briqk business, nave marked him as one who has long life before him, and have presently been horrified when he falls exhausted by the way. He did not know how to keep well. The art of keeping well is worth studying. Its principles are very sim ple. Nothing particularly occult or particularly puzzling belongs to it. They who wish to keep well must be ware not of draughts, not of fresh air, not of sunshine, or rain, but primarily must avoid too great fatigue. The nor mal human being who is in good health is able to endure a certain amount of strain and to carry a cer tain amount of weight. and impulsive and full of of mind and body and makes a person what is called run-down.

Wor ry frets mind and body as moth frets the fabric of a beautiful garment. Worry corrodes the soul as rust cor rodes metal. From all sides comes the protest, "It is easy enough to say don't worry, but how is one to help it, if he be of a worrying disposition or if things are contrary?"

Dyspepsia is due to eating too much or eating when one is over-tired, so that the brain cannot supply enough nervous fluid to aid digestion. For our national tendency to dyspepsia there is not the slightest excuse. It Is always a blunder and often a crime.

Leather Trimming. They are going to trim gowns with leather this fall and this, while it may be good news to the woman who can afford leather, is a sorry tale for her who cannot aspire to it. But, for the woman who cannot afford leather, it may be related that there are dull silks which take the place of suede very nicely. If she does not care to buy dull silk, the woman who is doing her own home dressmaking, can get a very good lightweight cloth of dull finish. This is quite as good as leath er, for it resembles It so closely. Marguerite Luncheon.

Startling Story of a Doll's Desertion and Final Rescue. It was growing very dark in the park. Under the big bush where Susy aat the shadows were so black that the policeman walked past without seeing her. Her little arms hung down very straight, and her big, black eyes looked up o where, be tween the tree-tops, she could see little twinkling spots all over the sky and a big silver ball with a face in It. Susie was a doll and she had never been out at night before, bo she did not know what these beautiful, ahlny things were. A firefly came along and flashed his lantern in her face. Mamma Firefly and he were out hunting for their lit tle ones. They were very sad, for they were afraid some of the bad children who played in the park evenings had caught them and put them in bottles or killed them. "Is that a child?" asked Mamma Firefly, fearfully. "No, It's another victim," answered Papa Firefly, as he flew away. Susy wondered what he meant. How A his and Then a hop toad came and sat on her feet. She asked him politely to get off, but he wouldn't. He said she looked exactly like a girl who had poked him with a stick, so he was going to sit on her. He was very friendly and told Susy a lot of things. He said he could only come out at night because the children were so bad. They stoned him and one boy threw him into the fountain. He said j he guessed that boy would have some warts soon.

Susy felt very sad when she thought of this. She was almost sure that her little mistress loved her. But perhaps now that she had a new doll she did not care for her any more. The new doll came from Paris. Marjory's Uncle Jack had brought It to her. It had lovely golden hair that curled all over its head, pink cheeks and big, blue eyes that would open and shut. It was ball, 7 7 ? The ffx - ^ h and the the of do as at ptfjM 'rU Ht I IvgL fT J) ■ r* > ;» y Z •>' M in f She Was Dreadfully Frightened. could say mamma and papa. It had a pretty lace dress, hat, parasol and lit tle kid shoes. It had turned up its nose—Susy was sure It had—when her little mistress had made them kiss each other the day before. Susy knew she was getting old and ugly. Her hair was very thin, because Marjory combed and pulled it so much. Her cheeks had lost their pret ty pink, for she was forced to take many, many baths. She did not care for any of these things if only her lit tle mistress would love her. She had not made herself. If she had she would have golden hair, blue eyes and wear a red silk dress and slippers. Just then she was dreadfully fright ened. for a thin, yellow dog caught her up by the neck, shook her, and finding that she was not good to eat, threw her down again. She fell flat, and although there was something hard and round that hurt her back, her eyes shut and she went fast asleep. The next thing she knew something fine and soft like a feather brush swept over her face, and she heard a clear little voice say "cheep-cheep." "Oh, Mr. Squirrel!" she cried, "won't you please pick me up so I can open my eyes?" The squirrel put his little, sharp teeth in her dress and propped her up against the bush. She opened her eyes wide. It was morning. The wind was blowing, and the park was full of dancing sunbeams. "Well, well, my dear," said the squirrel, "I'm glad I did that for you. Here's a fine big nut right under your back." Susy was going to (hank him for helping her, but he pick ad up the nut, frisked his tall and ran up a tree before she could say a word.

I guest that French doll made you forget her." "Hates Fwench dolls!' 'sobbed her little mistress. Just then the wind did Susy a good turn. It flapped her white dress, and even waved her little legs In the air. "There's my Shushy, Uncle Jack! Oh, Shushy! Shushy!" Susy felt moist kisses all over her face, while soft, warm little arms hugged her tightly. "Uncle Jack, you kiss Shushy!" And Uncle Jack did.—Anne R. Mc Creary, In Washington Star.

The THE PAINTER'S SKILL. The Secret of It Lay In Fact That He Was Always L earning. Half a dozen houses in one neigh borhood are being freshly painted this spring, and all by the same painter, a quite young man, whose thoroughness and skillfulness has passed into a proverb in the town. "We can't afford not to have him do the work," one householder had said. "He is absolutely careful in every de tail, and he knows his trade perfectly —all the little niceties of it." One morning a boy was watching the painter at work, and envying him what seemed such an easy job—"Just brushing on some paint," he told himself. He thought—did that boy— of a certain slow, "poky" task of his own, and impatiently wished he could do some simple work like the painter's. "How long does it take to learn that trade?" he inquired, complacently. "Well," said the busy young painter, as he drew his brush along a particu larly difficult place, "they say one can legrn it in three years, but I've been at it seven years now, and I don't know what I ought to know about it yet. There's still lots to learn." The painter's own ideal of work was always just beyond his own achieve ment, says Ram's Horn. In that lay the secret of his thoroughness, his skill, his success. It is such interest and ambition in one's work that makes patience easy to keep. The man who "knows It all" in three years is not the man for whom the owners of half a dozen houses will wait their turn to have him paint them. a up of the Fortunes in Stamp Collections. One hundred thousand dollars' worth of postage-stamps belonging to Boston collectors were exhibited at the con vention of the American Philatelic as sociation last month.

Is Largest In the World—Farmhouses on It Make a Small .Town—Own er Passes His Winters In Chicago. Odebolt, la.—When It Is considered that there are such corn fields in Iowa as Adams' 15,000-acre ranch at this place, producing 525,000 bushels every season, and employing regularly 105 men, it is little wonder that the state of Iowa has a 400,000,000-bushel corn crop for 1906. Before long 200 men will start on the 15,000 acres of corn, which will all be husked from the shock. Then the stocks will be shred ded for the fat cattle before spring. This corn field la the largest in the world. The full 15,000 acres was planted with tested seed and is expect ed to yield an average of more than 36 bushels to the acre. This Is consid ered a small average for Iowa corn this season. Thirty-seven double stalk cutters will be used to bind the corn in the field this fall. Mules are employed al most everywhere to do the heavy draft work on the farm, and there are over 200 of these animals kept there con stantly. Mr. and Mrs. Adams and family are at present at their winter home In Chicago and the farm is in the hands of its manager. With the exception of a large num ber of feeders which are purchased every fall, no cattle are raised on the big farm except enough milk cows to keep the help supplied with milk. Last winter Mr. Adams had 6,000 sheep brought from his North Dakota ranch for feeding, and it is announced that he- will do it again this winter as soon as the present yard full of cattle has been marketed. The affairs at the farm are conduct ed with as much system as in any large business office in this city. There is a main office and headquarters where the manager of the farm has his desk. It is here that Mr. Adams him self passes a large part of his time in summer. The farm is divided Into sections, and each part is under the direction of a subforeman and worked by his force of men. All the houses of the employes are located in one place near the center of the farm, making a small town. A schoolhouse is also erected here for the children of the workers. The farm and its methods are a revelation to the visitor. Adams is an enthusiast for good roads and all through the place he has built handsome drive her of It aal ed the in of j ways. There is another farm in Sac county. Iowa, which contains 6,000 acres. The land there is not all tilled as on the Adams ranch, and hence it is not of so general interest to the public.

Kansas City.—Miles J. Farris and Jiles M. Farris, born 32 years ago, on coming of age made twin sisters their wives. Their lives which were paral lel, did not diverge much when they went into business, for one became a barber and the other a butcher—not such a great difference after all, as Jtles expressed it recently. Time went on, and to the families had come a little Jiles M. and as well a little Mlles J. But with neither, it seemed, domestic harmony at the fire side prevailed, for one day a petition for divorce was filed by Jiles M. against Martha A. Farris, and on the following morning an attorney ap peared at the county court house with a petition for a divorce for Miles J. Farris from his wife, Attle Farris. Both petitions set forth desertion as the cause for seeking legal seperatlon and both charges show jealousy on the part of the wives, which, it is alleged, made life intolerable for the hus bands. Both women are in Louisiana, Mo. KINDNESS BROUGHT A FORTUNE. Good Samaritan Receives One-Fifth of Rich Man's Estate. Denver, Colo.—Because he befriend ed Dr. Albert B.

They met but once afterward, at a dinner table. Harris recently received a letter from the lawyer of Dr. Cummings, stating that the physician had died and in his will bequeathed young Har ris his entire estate, valued at between $50,000 and $75,000.

Good Food the True Road to Health. The pernicious habit some persons still have of relying on nauseous drugs to relieve dyspepsia, keeps up thel patent medicine business and helps keep up the army of dyspeptics. Indigestion — dyspepsia — is caused by what is put into the stomach in the way of improper food, the kind that so taxes the strength of the di gestive organs they are actually crip pled. When this state is reached, to resort to stimulants is like whipping a tired horse with a big load. Every addi tional effort he makes under the lash Increases his loss of power to move the load. Try helping the stomach by leaving off heavy, greasy, indigestible food and take on Grape-Nuts—light, easily di gested, full of strength for nerves and brain, in every grain of it. There's no waste of time nor energy when Grape Nuts is the food.
