Two Chances. As you all know, there are two sides to everything, but by experience we know you can never buy gold dol lars for 75 cents and it is the same way with shoes. When any one tells you they will give you shoes at half cost there is something wrong. First it is like this. Every up-to-date busi ness man marks down his stock in proportion to the market values, and as you all know there is nothing age affects more than shoes, so suppose you buy a pair of shoes that are ten years old. These shoes sold for $2.50 and may have cost| $2.00. Now you figure ten per cent oft' for every year, and how much are the shoes worth, and do you think they are cheap at cost Now you have two chances here at Kimballton to buy old shoes at cost or we will sell you a pair of new shoes of Hayward Bros. Famous at ten per cent on cost for the next thirty days. Now you choose. We have not one pair of shoes over six months old in our store.

Johnstone in Travel says that experienced wanderers in out of the way places are thankful for what they can set. and lie Instances a trav eler v.-ho was proposing to pass the night at Njegus, a tiny village In Mon tenegro. "Have you succeeded In finding a room?" asked 51:. Johnstone. "Y-yes." "Is it a good room?" "X-not bad. There are three other people going to sleep in it." "Oh. well, that's all right. Is the bed clean?" "N-no. I don't know that the bed is clean. But then one can get clean beds at home!" In one continental hotel a Gorman lady summoned the waiter in the din ing room and said: "Close that window or I shall die." "Garcon." exclaimed an English lady, "leave it open or I shall expire!" At this point a Frenchman interposed politely: "Leave it open till the Ger man lady luis died, and then close it till the English lady has expired. Then we shall be able to do as we like!'' Stale Medicines. "The length of time a prescription retains its efficacy depends upon the in gredients." said a druggist. "Some combinations of drugs keep on good terms with each other indefinitely, while others get into a row after being mixed together for awhile, and the man who swallows dose of the coin pound is apt to feel a good deal worse than before he took it. As a rule, medi cines that are quite sweet keep their curative virtues longer than those that are acid or bitter. Most any medicine can be taken in safety six months after compounding, and many will be all right six years hence. Those that are not good generally take on a curdled, milky appearance, but that is by no means an infallible rule, and the per son who wishes to save his system un comfortable complications would do well to let all old medicines strictly alone."—New York Tress.

Payment on Delivery. "Here is a story told me the other night," says a writer in the London Tatler. "Lord Tennyson, as all the world knows, wrote a sonnet for the first number of the Nineteenth Cen tury. As it stands in the poet's 'Col lected Works' it reads quite differently from its form as first presented, where it ran: "Thus far our bark hath sped without one check. "Mr. Knowles, the editor, wrote back to suggest that this line should be al tered, as a check for the amount of the poem would certainly be forthcoming and that the public might misunder stand." Kinpr Who Never Smiled Agnln. One of tin questions asked at a re cent teachers' examination," says a college professor, "was, 'Can you name the monarch referred to in English history as the king who never smiled again?'
