W. H. Pearson, the genial "village

fifth birthday. The two girls are

The other day the horses in J. C.
Hardman's yard became frightened at
some cattle and ran down the hill
toward the creek stopping at the
bank. One valuable mare however
lost her balance and went on over
alighting on her neck and shoulders.
Mr. Hardman hurried to her rescue
and got her out before she drowned,
but he fears very much she will not
recover.
Floyd Horace Brown.
Died at his mother's home in Anita,
la., Sept. 26, 1902, at the age of 18
years. His bright young lite drawn
to its earth close by consumption.
He will be remembered by his child
hood friends in Audubon where his
mother was so long a teacher in the
public school, and where she spent
many years of her early widowhood
in thus toiling for her child. Mov
ing with her to Anita, where she
continued to make her way by teach
ing, he fulfilled her fond hopes by his
rapid progression in learning, and in
the development of character. His
bright brown eyes and proud, grace
ful figure are not soon forgotten, nor
the charms of his boyishness and
spirit in which was ever found under
lying all a seriousness and honor of
the man, and through the chain of
his growing years he never lost sight
of his mother's sacrifices and love.
He tried to realize her ideals, he
wanted to be worthy other ambition,
and though not over strong physical
ly, he pushed onward in the mental
development which was his beyond
the average.
After a long, weary struggle alone,
with only her boy to bless her life,
the faithful mother became the wife
of Wm. Dinsmore, and the little

home in the. shady village was very
happy and complete. A beautiful
little sister came, and with more
fond hearts to watch his interests, the
son of so many darling hopes, grew
in ambition and knowledge. In the
spring of 1901 he graduated from the
Anita High school, valedictorian of
his class. In the fall he entered col
lege in Des Moines and there took a
severe cold which persisted in cliug
ing. He took a vacation to his
grandfather's, Horace Van Slykes
home in Kansas, in hope of the
climate improving his health, but
while there the symptoms of con
sumption fastened themselves upon
him. His mother brought him back
to the little home, and all that human
care and tenderness could do to woo
him back to strength and health his
loved ones did, but day by day his
sweet life wasted, and as the clouds
hung heavy in the heavens and the
first autumn leaves fell with the rain
drops—he smiled his farewell to the
broken watchers at his bedside, and
his gentle spirit fled.
"Go, go with thy God, with thy Savior dear
child!
Thou art His they aro His and thy sister is
But today thy fond mothor with anguish is
wild—
To think that her Bon is an angel in bliss.
O, forgive her dear Savior on Heaven's bright
shore,
She shall find in her child a still separate joy
While she lies in the light of thy face evermore
And think Heaven is brighter because ot her
boy.

Nothing in engineering is more to
mantle' or «urious than the fashion in
which the ordinary conception of a
mine as on opening penetrating tar be
low the ordinary level Is reversed
where inducements offer to climb high
above the earth's enrfaoe before pierc
ing Into K.
There Is, for instance, the Bureka
gold mine, probably the highest In the
world, situated 14,000 feet np in the
Andes range, not far from the dty of
ITujuy, in Argentina. So high is this
mine that it is only worked with great
difficulty owing to the "mountain sick
ness" and to similar troubles to which
workers at this Immense altitude, al
most three miles In the air, are sub
ject
Near Chocaya, In Bolivia, there is the
Veta del Ouadro mine, where silver ore
is extracted 13,060 feet above sea level,
while the same metal Is wrought near
Peopo, in the Cordilleras, 12,400 feet
above tide water. The produce from
all these Is carried on mule back over
tremendous mountain paths to points
where it can be placed on rail or be
concentrated into more portable form
for further transit by wagon to the
seaboard.—Stray Stories.

Strange as it may seem, plants grow
and bloesotn upon these great Ice
mountains. When a glacier is at rest
moss attaches Itself to it, protecting
the ice beneath, Just as sawdust does.
After a time the moss decays and
forms a soil, in which the seeds of
buttercups and dandelions, brought by
the wind, take root and flourish.
Those who have traveled in arctic
lands say they have found no point

The Skin.
Bathing to many persons is a term
embodying an expenditure of time and
considerable trouble. It Is probably
because they do not cleanse the skin
until It gives visible signs of its needs.
Now, the skin is everlastingly throw
ing off impurities which you cannot
always see with the naked eye, but
which will be readily found in the ap
pearance of the bath water even when
one bathes each day. When you can
wear a white collar a few hours with
out marring its spotlessnees where It
comes in contact with the skin, you
may have some excuse for thinking
that you are perfectly clean and not
before. The neatest person I ever saw
could not boast of snch an achieve
ment, for the thing is well nigh im
possible. Nature has provided the
pores for drainage purposes, and In
health they work without ceasing,—

The Slnsfoar Xoaae.
The power of song among the brute
creation has so long been associated
in our minds with the feathered tribe
alone that we do not think of It as be
longing to any four footed nnmnln.
Yet there Is a mouse that sings—why,
nobody knows. It is a small animal,
with very large ears, which are moved
about much while Ringing, as If that
were necessary to the suooess of the
vocal performance. The song Is not,
as you think, a prolonged sQueak with
variation^, but a succession of clear,
warbling notes, with trills, not unlike
the song of a conaa^ and Quite as
beautiful, though some of the notes
are much lower. Onejgxeat peculiarity
is a sort of double .song,, an air with
aooampanlment Quite subdued. Upon
first hearing this one believes that he
is listening to more than one mouse,
so perfect is the illusion.
