HOW IT CAME
It Isnt the thing you do dear
Its the thing you leave undone
Which gives you a bit of a heart
ache
At the setting of the sun
The tender word forgotten
The letter you did not write
The flower you might have sent
dear
Are your haunting ghosts tonight
9he stone you might have lifted h
r Out of a brothers way
Ik bit fh e rtsome counsel
You were hurried too much to say
The loving touch of the hand dear
The gentle and winsome tone
That you had no time or thought for
With troubles enough of your own
These JltUe acts of kindness
So easily out of mind
These chances to be angels
Which even mortals find
They come in night and silence
Each chill rejhoacteul wraith
When hope is faint and flagging
And blight has dropped on faith
For life is aU too short dear
And sorrow is all too great I
To suffer our slow compassion
That tarries until too late
And its not the thing you do dear
Its the thing you leave undone
VNhJch gives you the bitter heart
ache
I At the setting of the sun

BILL POSSUMHIS
BOOK
Of the book by this title written by
Miss Mary Brent WTiiteside The Con
federate Veteran says
Miss Mary Brent Whiteside of At I
lanta Ga has celebrated Mr Tafts
late visit to that city by a charming
little booklet by the above title
Bill Possum proves Miss White
side an adept in writing tne negro
dialect She has not only uses their
quaint expressions but the very trend
of their ideas seems conveyed In her
writings
Old Uncle Isaac is the typical old
Southern darky of field and woods
Reading of him one seems to see the
old plantation quarters to hear tne
soft twang of the banjo picking and I
the shuffle of dancng feet and to
catch the yelp of tae yaller dorg
that seems so necessary a part of the
picture Through the whole book
peeps the inconsequent joy of the
negro race and the strange super
stitions that wield so strong an In
fluence over their lives Bill Possum
is humanized and of course talks
the negro tongue for Miss Whiteside
says The possum language tr nslat
ed Into speech naturally takes th =
orm of the negro dialect for be
tween the negro and the possum ex
ists a peculiar affinity which to the
white man is unknown and unattain
able
Grandfather Possums stories are
very quaint and abound in that odd
philosophy that seems to underlie the
negro character Some of his com r
ments to that ouestionIoving young
est grandchild of his are gems of ne
gro shrewdness
Altogether the book is one of the
best dialect stories that has appeared
for a long time

There is no place where friends
become better friends and are drawn
more closely together than around a
fstive board and the perfect congeni
ality which is most apparent amongst
Professor Wrights boys marked the
feasts of last evening with an enjoy
ment unparalleled
Crimson and gray the school col
ors beautified the tables where a de
licious menu Was served In six
courses crimson sweet peas wafting
their perfume throughout the rooms
their vivid red color being In direct
contrast to the green of the ferns
Streamers of crimson and gray
from the chandelier to the side lights
fell intermingled with graceful fes
toons of smilax and formed almost a
canopy under which the banquets
were enjoyed
The tablets had for centerpieces
mounds of ferns and sweet peas the
gray ribbon catching here and there
the crimson sweet peas and carrying
out the color tone
A ball formed entirely of the red
sweet peas hung suspended over the
center of ench table and ablg bow
of gray satin ribbon with its graceful
spreading streamers fell from this
the ball was typical of the sport
which at the beginning of the fall
term plays such an important part
in a college lads life when the foot
ball season is at its height The
candelabra had red candles and the
gray shades were encircled with the
sweet pea blossoms
The only hint of the fair sex at
these feasts were in the place cards
where the faces of pretty girls peeped
out from poke bonnets or large flower
hats the back of the cards being left
blank for the autographs The menu
i cards were tied with the ray and
crimson ribbons and the following
delectable courses were named in

QUITE A NUMBER HAVE BEEN
CIRCULATED AND MERCHANTS
HAVE LOST NEAT SUMS BY
CASHING THEMPOLICE ARE
MAKING AN INVESTIGATION
Numerous checks to which the
names of prominent residents have
been forged have been circulated in
the city during the past few days and
in each Instance some merchant or
business man has lost sums ranging I
from 25 to 50 cashing the checks
for the parties presenting them and
thinking them all right until the
forgery was discovered either by the
banking institutions or else by the de
positor
The method pursued it Is stated is
to draw a check and forge the name
of some man whose account is known
fairly well to be in a certain banking
institution This Is taken to a mer
chant or saloon man and after some
purchase is made Is handed over The
party to whom It is tendered does not
doubt that the man whose name is at
tached is not good for the amount and I
never hesitates in cashing the check i
The matter it is said has been re
ported to the police but what the I
latterhave accomplished towards de
tecting the parties is not known i

other banking institution in the city
registered so large a gain It Is a
moot question in banking circles
whether a bank sacrifices Its dignity
by publicly bidding for patronage
through the newspapers But dignity
doesnt make much of a showing In
bank statements whereas deposits
do Besides dignity being inter

8 uare Deal
For Women
If is often argued that women do not have an equal chance
vritE men because women suffer so much from pain and weakness
In a general sense it is true that women bear more physical pain
than men However the belief that women must suffer regularly
on account of ailments and weakness peculiar to their sex has been
successfully contradicted by the relief eo many women have ob
tained bythe use of Cardui that great remedy for women
Mrs S J Kintner of B P D No2 Defiance Ohio tried i
Cardui and of her experience she writes I have taken six bottles
of Cardui and have been greatly benefited Before taking Cardui
I couldnt be on my feet half an hour at a time but now I can
work all day I sleep well and the pain in my right side and lower
limbs is all gone I am in better health than I have been for fire
years I shall recommend Cardui to all my friends
What Cardui has done for Mrs Kintner and other women it
surely can do for you Try it once Give yourself a square deal
Cardui is sold everywhere by all relUble druggiatg with instruct
ions for use
