He simply states that »Senator Borah does not tako the boom »eriously which conclusion reflects i'credit on tils acumen as no one else lias taken it seriously at all. Most of us would take pleasure In seeing Ida in» furnish a president. Aside from rotate pride we can see little to the ndidacy of Senator Borah- For sev eral months past it has been the fash ion of Ild&ho journals bo publish en comiums 'on Senator BoTah with par ticular attention to him as a presi dential possibflty. None of his admir ers, and they are legion, so far as wo have seen, have given in detail his qualifications for this high position. What are thoee peculiar qualifications and characteristics which would com pel a political party to como to the 'weak, insignificant state of Idaho for Its candidate for president? It is pop ularity? Big Tim Sullivan was the most popular man in the city of New "York. Is it eloquence? William Jen Pings Bryan has a world-wide reputa tion for oratory and thrice he has been re-elected. Is it magnetism? J. G. Blaine was the most magnetic man of his day. Is it success in congress, liko that which led to the nomination and election of President McKinley?

Listen daughter. Your mother in forms me that you and she have been talking over the matter of getting a hired girl to do housework. She al fd says that she feels sure that you two could get along with tho work all right, but that the young fellow who is coming around here evenings will think we are not swell enough if he knows that you and mother do the housework. Don't yon worry over that If he thinks such stuff, he is not good enough for you. But he looks pretty good to me and if he is half the fellow I take him to be he will think all the more of you when he knows that you net only know how to cook and bake and mend, but that you are on the job- So let's put up a little game on him. The very next time he comes, receive him in your kitchen apron. Tell him to amuse himself in the parlor tor a moment until you fitiish manicuring the sup per dishes. I won't be here, you know. He picks out my lodge night to make hiä calls. So I won't be in the parlor to embarass him. Then along about ten o'clock, ask him if he wouldn't like a bite of lunch- ITo'U insist that it will be too much trou ble, but you tell him he may come along and ljelp. Any man in the world will fall for that. He'll trail along after you to the kitchen. You will have the stage all set and the the proper costumes. The cos tumes will consist of two aprons, one for you and one for him. Oh, he will put it on- If there is anything young men will fall for it's the kitchen and a job doing nothing but keeping out of the way. Then you get the lundi ready. Tell him to slice the bread and no matter how he butchers it, tell him ita fine. Ask him if ho o\n make a salad dressing. If he says ho can, let him go to it. And you must praise it to the skies. Ask him for the recipe- Tell him you'll keep it a secret. What would you like for wedding present. HIDDEN GOODNESS It is only by the fragrance, Which the lowly violets spread, That we learn about their presence, As we pass with hasty tread; So in places dark and hidden,» Fragrant lives pour out their love, Striving weary souls to gladden, Pointing them to Heav'n above. Those who seek tor gems most costly, Leave the crowded haunts of mirth, And they delve in nooks lonely. Rarest treasures to unearth; Can'st thou find the purest, choicest, Leading on a gallant fight, And the battle fiercer raging, Men contend with all their might; Clad in gorgeous robes that glisten. See, a prima donna sings; How the throng with wonder listen, Till the place with cheering rings; But earth's sweetest song I fancy, Is a mother's lullaby, As she sings her angel baby, Into sleep's deep mystery Oft we read of soldiers daring. Of God's Jewels? Then I ween. Thou must seek in places lowest, There are battles still more glorious, In the humble walks of life. Where men strive until victorious, O'er temptations fierce and rife. Where the great are rarely seen. —William J. Luscomba of of CHICHESTER S PILLS THE DIAMOND BRAND. Ladle«!

For while we sweat and stew around in breezy summer clothes it's an easy thing to cool off and forgot earthly woes. But it's different in the win ter when the world is full of ice and the weater is as hard to beat as any loaded dice. We may boast about our climate and about our spring and fall, but the balmy days of summer arc the best ones after all-. —Howard, S. D. Democrat. FUNERAL OF ANNIE WIGGINS.
