Cards of Thanks, Obituary Poetry 4hS Resolutions of Hespcct aro published at tho rate of S cents per lino only. Thoro will be no deviation from this rule. Nine times out of ton wo aro satis fied in our own minds doubtless that the advico wo glvo others Is offered for their good and that we have no intention of Interfering in tho man agement of their affairs. In just the tamo way also thoso of us who un consciously make it a practice to fol low up a porson, as it were, and call to his attention trifling faults and careless habits, and the like, bollovo in our hearts that wo are doing him a service. That the reverse is gen erally tho case, howover, can be easily proven by consulting our own feelings whon we ore taken to task by others who claim to display only a friendly tntorest in oar welfare. There are ") qualities about human nature . moke ub all aliko however wide different our positions In life may .. It does not moke very much dif ference whether wo are rich or poor, prominent or little known in worldly affairs, when it comes to tho funda mental, underlying principles of our natures we ore all cost In the same general mold, even if the finished products vary in details. Such being Che case, it follows naturally that In dividual experience should teach us to ho more considerate of the feelings of others than we sometimes are. However, it so happens that we are xxot always willing to learn correctly tho lesBOtr that is offered, but read Into it a different meaning and one that Is more convenient for our pur poses. Without intending to dq so we make tho mistake of applying one rule to tho conduct of others and an- other to our own conduct and think that we aro entirely fair in our deal ings. "Wo resent anyone 01808 inter ference in our personal conduct, for example, but we fail to see why any ono ohso should resent what seems to? as on entirely legitimate interest in thsetr welfare. . An Iowa professor is telling farm els' institutes that tho high cost of Bring is duo to the drift to the cities. Es ought to tell that to the city men whom he wishes to divert to tho farms, saya tho New York Times. He cant shock the farmers by telling thorn why thoir prices are high. If tho drift to the cities raises the cost of their products tho farmers will not bo kept from tho cities. According to the professor, in 1800 SO per cent of the population were formers, against 33, per cent, now. But what does that prove? Wo have more bushels apiece now than then, for tho simple reason that one man now con raise more than a dozen could then. In 1800 farmers did not plow and har vest by power machines 24 hours a day. They were willing to, but what was impossible for man and beast a hundred years ago is easy now by the machinery which could not exist with iTift to tho cities. Man does by eating alo.ua. If 90 per j the population were sent back w :ho forms, how should we be clothed or housed, or how could wo and our goods be transported on the railways? The professor's figures may bo right, but his deduction will stand checking up. , The Into ."Stephen Adams" made a good thing out of his songs, but his profits have often been eclipsed. '"Queen of My Heart" brought its com poser 40,000 (J200.000) in one year, says tho London Chronicle. "Her Golden Hair Was Hanging Down Her Back" earned 20,000 in a very few months, and "Hush, tho Bogey Man" was almost as successful. "The Man That Broke tho Bank at Monte Carlo" and "Tho Rowdy-Dowdy Boys" swept like a tornado over th world and brought in tons of thousands of pounds In royalties. Sir Arthur Sul livan drow ovor 10,000 in roynltles from "The Lost Chord." "In Old Madrid" rewarded composer and pub lisher to tho tuno of 15,000, and "My Pretty Jane" is said to have yielded a rovenuo of 2,000 a line. ' A petition signed by 220,072 French women, asking that tho number of establishments for tho salo of alcohol lo spirits be limited, has been pre sented to tho chambers of doputies by Joseph Roinacb, ono of tho ablest poli ticians In Franco, and five other depu ties.

Truth Is, the American la of a Typo That the Old World Has Not Yet Como to Understand, and So Its Judgment Is at Fault. Tho Americans as a race walk better than. we nioro freely, with a taking Bwlng, and almost with grace. How much of this Is due to living In a de mocracy, and how much to wearing no braces, It Is very dlcult to dotermlne. But certainly It Is tho land of bolts, and therefore of more loosely moving bodies. Also, Americans take their coats off, which 1b sensible; and they can do It the more beautifully becauso they aro belted and not braced. They take their coats off everywhere and any. whoro, and somehow it Btrlkes tho vis itor aB tho most symbolic thing about them. They have not yet thought ol discarding collars; but they aro un ashamedly shirt-sleeved. Any sculptor seeking to figure this republic In stone must carve in fu ture a young man, open-faced, pleas ant, and rather vulgar, straw hat on tho back of his head, his trousera full and sloppy, his coat over his arm. The motto written beneath will bo, ol course: "This Is some country." The philosophic gnzer on such a monument might get some way to ward understanding tho making of the Panama canal, that exploit that no European nation could have car ried out. Tho American race seems to have developed two classes, and only two, the upper middle and tho lower mid dle. Their faces are very distinct. The upper-class head Is long, often fine about the forehead and eyes, and very cleanly outlined. The eyes have an odd, tired pathos in them mixed with the friendliness that is so admir able as if of a perpetual, neer quite successiui, euort 10 unuersianu some thing. It 1$ like tho face of an only child who has been brought up In the com pany of adults. But tho mouth of sucb men is tho most typical feature. It is small, tight, and closed down ward at the corners, tho lower lip very slightly protruding. It has very little expression in it, and no curves. There the Puritan comes out But no other nation has a mouth llko this. It Is shared to some ex tent by the lower classes, but their mouths tend to the wider and more expressive. These, anyhow, are the types that strike one In the eastern cities. And there are intermediate varieties, as of tho genial business man, with the narrow foreneaa ana tno wiao, smooth, lower face. The women's faces are more in determinate; not very feminine; many of them wear those "Invisible" eyeglasses which center glltterlngly about the bridge of the nose and get from them a curious air of Intelli gence. Handsome people of both sexes are very common; beautiful and pretty ones very rare. Westminster Ga zette. Old Weir Utilized. An ancient stone weir on the rivei Deo, constructed by Hugh Lupus, earl of Chestoh, between 1070 and 1101 is being utilized to supply tho city ol Chester with electricity, relates Lon don Answers. The weir was original ly erected to drive cornmllls, and the milling Industry continued up to 1908. In 1910, however, Chester corporation, who had purchased the property, dis mantled the mills. Mr. S. E. Brltton, the city electrical engineer, then de vised a scheme for converting the wa ter power into electrical energy, and it is believed that the anuual saving thus effected will repay tho capital ex pendlture in five years. It is estimated that tho installation will yield 1,250, 000 units per annum at a cost of less than 0.3d per unit, inclusive of capital charges. TRUTH TRIUMPHS. Perrysburg Citizens Testify for the Public Benefit. A truthful statement of a Perrys burg citizen given in his own words, about the merits of Doan's Kidney should convince the most skeptical Pills. If you. suffer from backache, nervousness, sleeplessness, urinary disorders or any form of kidney ills, use a tested kidney medicine. A Perrysburg citizen tells of Doan's Kidney Pills. Could you demand more convinc ing proof of merit? Charles Bayer, harness makei, Fifth street, Perysburg, Ohio, says: "I am willing- at all times to praise Doan's Kidney Pills, as they cured me of a severe attack of backache and other symptoms of kidney trou ble a few years ago. Although I have had no occasion to uso Doan's Kidney Pills lately, my opinion of them is the same as when I first used them. I have recommended Doan's Kidney Pills to my friends and have never heard of an instance where they have failed to give relief." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.
