In The Wrong Pew.
A man just weren't made to keep house, thats the shinin' truth about the matter. O, yes, we have tried and. in the ver nacular of the common herd, wove tried our plaguo-ondest. Recently the better nine tenths of this writer went to see her kin She had anew dress and wanted to let ’em know that she was get ting on hue. All women are like that. Well she appointed us food-director, active vice-presi dent and general roust.about of the Kitchen during her absence. It was a hard job but we per formed it in a manner that made us proud of ourself. Everything was kept spank and span—so we thought, Not a dog was allow ed in the house during her en tire absence; nut a friendly poker game was played there. We behaved beautifully in every way. But when she came back— gee-whilikins! Shedeclared the whole place was in a mess. Well, we had hooverized on the use of the broom. Some, body told us the corn crop was shoal and we supposed that in eluded broom corn, Indian corn, kaiffer corn and all kinds of corn, so we did the patriotic thing 1 and wouldn’t sweep. We had also left the hatchet in the middle of the dining table; just simply for got it there when we opened the last can of pork and beans. And the dish-rag—where do you sup. pose it was? Hanging on the phonograph horn, where no properly brought up and decent, ly behaved dish rag would ever be caught. Yes, we give it up! Send the men to war and let the women boil the potatoes. God’s last and best gift to the world is the prop er queen ot the home. All housekeeping sense that the Creator ever gave to male brutes was removed with that rib in the garden of Eden.—Exchange, —By The Office Boy— Anyway, wo can’t see why a strawhat, isn’t just as good as a wool one. just as long as it isn’t raining. Strange, but a man will notice that his shoes ain’t polished a heap quicker before he’s married than he will afterward’s. Owing to the scarcity of fuel we are willing for summer to hold on just as long as our ice cream credit is good. O, you can’t tell when a fellow is a tighter. Maybe the first, married man to enlist is the one who is worst afraid of his wife. We don’t know just what the price of poultry is. bui one roost er on a fall bonnet comes mighty high. Now that the government needs them for making gas masks no patriotic citizen should swallow his prune seed. A friend of ours says that not only destroyed ancient eathe. drais thai can never be replaced, out it has almost put “chawing” tobacco out ot his reach. It appears that discipline in the German army includes the stealing of anything lying loose from the cheese on a mouse.trap to a church cupalo. What is the use of a man going out ot town to take a rest? He can stay right at home and rest while he is bef.ting the carpet and putting up the stove for his wife. The average man never knows when he has lost an argument. We often hear them going right ahead, atter the woman has giv. en that allconvincing, infallible, copper-rivited reason of hers— j because, The San Antonio (Tex.) Express furnishes its readers with a “lay sersom” each Sunday. No doubt uis good, hut t fie News objects to I lie name. We rather need standmg.up, walking and working sermons. Too much of the world’s religion in the past has been “lay” religion. It hasn’t rambled around and done enough. As we get older, we grow to like the practical things best. Christianity should be squared with human usefulness or it isn’t coming up to the standard. Worship by works is superior to any other kind. A man was going down the streets ot Dallas three years ago cold and hungry. A church leader invited him out to services on the following Sunday. Then he met a salvation army captain and was chucked full of bean soup and hot bread. The eats and the kindness of the fellow who furnished them appealed to him. He found religion on the bring line, religion that knows a human be ing has a stomach, and eventually it reached his heart and claimed his life. Praver is alright, prayer is a useful and beautiful practice. Hut don’t try to keep the bleak winds from whipping through a thin and ragged coat with it. Don’t use it as a substitute for boil, ed potatoes and corn dodgers. It hasn’t the warmth and the tilling of wool blankets and “chow.” It is easy to be sanctimomus these days; it doesn’t require a great deal of resistance, especially in Oktibbeha county, to look no' upon the wine when it is red in the cup; anybody can keep out of a poker game. Anybody can resist stealing hogs. These temp tations have been taken away. But it is just as hard as ever to do good deeds, lo find the needy and t) help them It is the religion of the Rid Cross worker, however, that the world is crying lor; the religion that binds bleeding limbs on the battlefields, the religion that takes up a guu and fights for human ity’s God.given rights; the religion of golden Love examplifled b 7 real labor. Such a religion is beautiful like the wild rose that wafts its fragrance across the prairies. We see its glory— not hid beneath an uncertain profession—blit waving in the sunshine, sweetening the world. No woman so far as we know, ever set out to conquer t he world, ■But if one should do it and be as persistent about that as she is about getting anew hat when she wants it—good night world! One reason the phonograph is not a; annoying as the vocal puji pit, is that you can shut the phonograph up, A neighbor of ours says that it takes her hack to infancy to hear her husband snore, because she was born in a saw-mill. iVlrs.

Most people in America would have to go without fresh meat, or would have to pay more for what they could get, if it were not for these traveling ice boxes. ‘ ' Gustavus F. Swift, the first Swift in the packing industry, saw the need of these traveling ice boxes before others. ■ He asked the railroads to build them. The railroads refused. They were equipped, and preferred to haul cattle rather than dressed beef. So Gustavus F. Swift had to make the cars himself. The fiist one was a box car rigged up to hold ice. Now there are 7,000 Swift refrigerator cars. Each one is as fine an ice box as you have in your home. Day and night, fair weather and foul through heat and cold, these 7,000 cars go rolling up and down the country, keeping meat just right, on its way to you. Thus another phase of Swift & Company’s activities has grown to meet a need no one else could or would supply, in way that matched Swift & Company ideas of being useful. 5 When you see one of these Swift & Company cars in a tram, or on a siding, you will be reminded of what is being done for you as the fruit of experience and a desire to serve.

Kathleen, Fla.—Mrs. Dallas Prtne, of this place, says: “After the birth of my last child.,.l got very much run-down and weakened, so much that I could hardly do anything at all. I was so awfully nervous that I could scarcely endure the least noise. My condition was getting worse all the time... 1 know I must have some relief or I would soon be in the bed and In a serious condition for I felt so badly and was so nervous and weak I could hardly live. My husband asked Dr. about my taking Cardui. He said, ‘lt’s a good medicine, and good for thgt trouble’, so he got me 5 bot tles... After about the second bottle I felt greatly improved.. .before taking It my limbs and hands and arms would go to sleep. After taking it, however, this poor circulation disap peared. My strength came back to me and I was soon on the road to health. After the use o t about 5 bot tles, I could do ail my house-work and attend to my bLe children be sides.” You can feel safe In giving Cardui a thorough trial for your troubles.
