In these United States of America at least, and it is highly probable that throughout the entire world, the ollicial record for the safety and welfare of its passengers made and maintained by the Chicago A: Alton railroad cannot be surpassed if indeed it can be equaled Over its completely rock-ballasted, dustless roadway between Chicago and Kansas City, Chicago and St. Louis, Chicago and Peoria, eighteen magnif icently appointed express trains are run on uniformly fast time every day. lint in spite of this passenger try flic the ollicial records show that from De cember 4, 187., to December 1, 181), eleven years, there was no passenger who was in place as a passenger, killed on Chicago & Alton trains. Moreover there was not a passenger seriously in-jii'-ed to the exti nt of losing a limb, an cc or v. ..it.in.ti of any kind during that time. During the entire period of the World's Columbian Imposition in Chi cago, when it was not an uncommon thing to lind the usual passenger traffic of the road increased two, three and four-fold, and special excursion trains and extra sections of regular trains were very many, there was not an ac cident of any kind a most remarkable record. Uesides being America'a most pop ular railroad, the Chicago & Alton is the Pioneer Dining Car Line, the Pio- nter Pullman Sleeping Car Line and Pioneer Palace lteclining Chair Car Line, and the best line from Chicago to Peoria, Illinois, and Hot Springs, A ikansis. De sur that your ticket reads over the Chidago & Alton railroad, when its matchless and direct lines can form the whole, or even a part of your journey.

K iiMlm-K. is a word easily snoken. lhis is a word easily spoken. Yet how few stop for even a moment to con sider its import, much less the carrying out of all that the brief expression im plies. Kindness has done more for the human heart than money could possibly do. It makes the old voting in heart' to be met upon all sides with Kindness; it makes the care-worn and weary mother, father, sister or brother stronger in contending with the myriad of almost insurmountable obstacles in life's path. It makes home the most sacred and loved spot on earth. It is the human sunlight of otur existence, and will make all human nature bow at its shrine. There is no virtue m our nature to be more admired or cultivated than that of kindness. The very dogs upon the street will reciprocate a kindness at the hands of even a stranger. Don't be afraid of spoiling anyone with kindness proper ly bestowed. It can't be done. Instead of spoiling, it beautifies the character, cheers the heart and helps to lift the burden from the shoulders which though brave, sometimes grow weary. Kindness rendered many times gives more pleasure than when received. Fx. To On ners r WIh.

Having seen an announcement in the Plymouth papers oi the marriage license of Miss Phebe Joslin, of Lapaz, who is well known at this place having attend ed high school here last winter, every body naturally supposed her married.

"Good-bye" is "God be with you'" "Adieu" and "adios" are "I commend you to God." A neighbor is merely a "nigh boor." or the nearest farmer. "Boor" is in this sense not an epithet, but the equivalent of "Bauer" in German, or "Boor" in Dutch. The Bowery boys, themselves dwell ers on a street named for a farm or "bouwerie," use "farmer" as an epithet. Both "villa" and "town" were for merly used to mean a farm. Gradually the former came to mean a country resi dence, the latter a collection of houses. 'Teck" was at first merely a basket of any size. "Furlong" was a furrow long.
