A lot of discussion and some feeling has been caused in Panama by the recent publication in the United States and focal press of an alleged desire of some of Panama's public men to see this country annexed to Costa Rica. Senor Don Santiago de la Guar dia stated to an interviewer some time ago that it was his hope that at some time there would be a great federation of Central American States on the order of the United States of North America. With Panama and Costa Rica as a nu cleus, he said, such a consumma tion might not be as chimerical as many supposed. The two Govern ments mentioned were used as ex amples, as enjoying each a stable Government, free from revolutions, in good circumstances financially, with a splendidj-eputationat home and abroad, and. with futures that are not beclouded anduueertain. In the interview the word ' 'an nexation was not used or suggest ed. In is that term to which the people of Panama except. Thev rebel at any such idea being enter tained either by the people of the United States or Costa Rica. Few countries occupy'so enviablea post tion as Panama, and, knowing it, they will not willingly .throw their opportunities away. It is not asserted by Senor de la Guardia that the idea of a federa tion ot central American btates is new. but the Idea is gaining growth) Leaders of thought in the South are seeing the value and utility of the same honesty in Governments that is appreciated in individuals Panama and Costa Rica are the leaven being used to knead public opinion to that conclusion. Senor de la Guardia is a native of Panama, but for about twenty years lived in Costa Rica- When Panama became an independent RepublicShe was appointedjto rep resent it in a diplomatic capacity in Costa Rica. When the interna: disorder of last year shook the peace of Panama President Amador summoned Senor de la Guardia home to assume the office he now holds. The small fruit grower who likes strawberries should get enough plants tp start growing them for himself. When the plants for field setting are grown at home there is not so much danger their doing poorly. The home grown sets can be taken up with plenty of earth about the roots, and im mediately set in the field, which prevents them from drying out so easily. Plants shipped from a dis tance are very delicate but a sufficient number can be coaxed to thrive so that in a season enough new sets to plant a large patch will form. When putting out plants see that they are not set too deep nor too shallow: and after setting draw the earth up around them loosely with a hoe to form a sort of mulch that will hold the moisture. Keep down weeds and grass and cultivate well. Before planting see that the earth is well pulverized and in good condition. Rich black land well drained is good for strawberries.

Lester last night, was one unique "present" which came in last, but which proved -not the least appreciated. The present in question was a plain bale of hay, but it evoked much laughter when the crowd rushed to see what the huge present was in the wrapping. Attached to the bale was a placard which read on one side: "Mr. and Mrs. Austin B. Lester, Newly-wed Avenue, City of Honeymoon, State of Matrimony." On the reverse side it read: "With best wishes that your happiness may grow as did this humble bale of hay, and your pathway through life be always as green as this used to be. Wilbur Dennet, E. C.

Sair Francisco's demand for WOMAN STARTS BUSINESS. Chicago, III. Because Mrs- Kate Fitzibbon Hamblin desired , to become a successful business woman instead of taking up the duties of domestic life, her hus band, Eugene Hamblin, has sued for a divorce. - " Hamblin is president" .pf the Hamblin Printing Company in Austin. In his bill the com plainant gives a detailed account of the differences between him and' Mrs. Hamblin, because of her alleged declaration that she would rather be a successful business woman than a good housekeeper." The Hamblins were married Nov- 3, 1897, and have two children Helen, 7 years old, and Eugene, 5 years old. The husband says they were happy until October, 1901,. when his wife announced that she had obtained a position as a sales woman and that it was her purpose to give up home life for a "busi ness career." Then, Hamblin declares, he wrote to the firm by which' she was employed, asking it to use its influence to persuade her to return home. This effort, the complainant says was without avail, for soon his wife was promoted by the firm, and in her new position was obliged to travel. Her trips, Hamblim says, sometimes kept his wife away from home several days at a time Mrs. Hamblin has visited her hus band's house twice. ' 'The last time my wife came home," said Mr. Hamblin "our little girl put her arms around her mother's neck and said: 'Mamma, won't you please come back home and be our mamma again? and her mother replied: 'Oh, no, Helen, I can't. " Mrs. Hamblin now lives at No. 3069 Dover street. Snollygoaster Ham. , A friend of Snollygoaster Ham, tfie Georgia lecturerer, says 'that several months ago that fun maker was in Chicago and had the misfor tune to have his purse stolen, leav ing him stranded. Ham was known at the hotel and managed to get the proprietor to stake him until he got a check from the lec ture bureau. The Snollygoaster was feeling sore when he ambled into a restaurant and ordered dinner, asking the 'waiter what was "teal." "Teal, sir; that's duck," vas the answer. "Duck?" a "Yes, sir.'" "Got wings?'" "Yes, sir."" "And could' it ny?'" "Yes, sir-" N "Well, I don't want any, then. Any thing that had wings and could fly and didn't fly out of this pickpocket town I don't want tr have anything to do with." Charleston News and Courier-.

A man is very fond of country ' life when he doesn't have to live it. It is better to have wed and been divorced by an heiress than never to have had a cent at all. The nice thing about a girl's wink is you never can be sure what it means, so you can try to find out. A woman can't enjoy riding in- an automobile the way she can in a street car, because mere never is any conductor to forget to cqjlect her fare. You can never make a man be lieve that he can't afford to pay five times a- much for his dinner in a restaurant where everybody is ' looking at him as he can at home. If a man has money to burn he can easily find some woman who is. willing to furnish a match.
