The okl feeling that "anything

The ambition of the towns in the

- In short, the railroads and the

rather than along the old lines of

The Dog Question.
Milton News: If the farmers of
the county owning worthless dogs
c.ould be induced to destroy them
and substitute one well-bred shep
herd pup, noi more, to each fann
.the wealth of every farming commu
nity would be increased in many
ways. Farmers with a little tact in
getting along with a dog would soon
find the collie saving them many a
step. Eager and anxious to learn,
trilling to do everything within his
power, the dog needs . only a wise
and patient restraint, an intelligent
direction, to become the most useful
hand on the place. There are a
number- in Milton to which the
headsman's ax should be applied. It
is impossible to understand why a
person living in town wants to feed
and care for so many worthless dogs.

Ah, this is a beautiful world! I
know noi what to think of it. Some
times il is all sunshine and gladness,
and Heaven itself lies not far off;
and then it suddenly changes and is
dark and sorrowful, and the clouds
shut out the entire day. In the
lives of the saddest of us there are
bright days like this, when we feel
as if we could take the whole world
into our arms. Then come gloom v
hours, when the fire will not burn
on our hearths, and all without and
within is dismal, cold, dark. Believe'
me, cverr head, has its secret sor
rows, which, the world knows not.
and oft-times we call a man cold
when he is only sad. II. W. Long

Keep Young" b3r Science.
Do you know why it is that fash
ionable woman lpoks as young and
rosy at 50 as the unfashionable wo
man at 30? It is because she takes
care of herself. The unfashionable
woman gets her beauty sleep every
night and never dissipates in the
matter of balls and little suppers
prepared over the. blazer while the
rest of the world is aslscp. She eats
her three meals a day anil at just
the propen hours. Everything on
her table is wholesome and intended
to keep her skin rosy and her little
body lissome. She thinks it almost
immoral to clog the pores of the
skin with powder and pomade, and
she belives in nature absolutely.
And just there is the difference.
The fashionable woman or woman
of the world, if you choose, for the
fashionable woman is hardly a broad
enough term for the woman that is
always young at 50 believes in art.
She knows that nature is a wonder
ful restorative, but she has infinitely
more faith in art and science. When
the wrinkles begin to come the fash
ionable woman knows of pomades
and masseurs. She has found that
the Turkish bath will do more to
wards making her eyes lustrous and
her skin clear than all the ten-hour
sleep and whole-wheat bread reme
dies in the world. She wears cor
sets snug ones, tjo but they arc
corsets that fit the figure and do not
