Dr. Wiley, who works for the gov ernment at Washington and feeds ex perimental classes adulterated food to see whether it will do to them all that is claimed on the wrapper, says that the next generation will consider it an everyday trick to live 100 years, and that any one In the future who dies of anything but old age will bo so ashamed of himself that he won't speak to the neighbors.

Why He Should Patronize Home Mer chants —Pitfalls In Mail Order Propo sitions —Local Dealer More Dependa ble —And Don't Forget the Printer. In a recent issue the Daily l-'orutn of Bucyrus, U., presents a plain talk 011 the duty of the loyal citizen in relation to his home town. The argument is applicable to every town in America. It runs as follows: The first duty of every citizen is to be law abiding. The second duty is to be loyal to his own community, to be public spirited, to support home Insti tutions and to patronize home industry and home trade. Very few people will dispute these propositions. It is especially the last which we want to talk about a little In this connection. This paper consistent ly and at all times lias advocated and urged the support of home merchants, but It Is well to keep the reasons why this Is the duty of all fresh in mind. A few of them we wish to call attention to just now. In the first place It Is your home dealer who does you good. lie pays taxes to support your local government and your schools. He contributes to the support of your churches, and he Is the man who goes down in his pock et and puts up the price when new in dustries are knocking at your door and there Is an opportunity to better local conditions, to improve real estate val ues and to make your community bet ter in every way. Iu the second place, he is the man you go to in case of misfortune and when in need of favors. With all for eign dealers, either in the mail order line or In the cities that you occasion ally visit, business is a cold blooded proposition. If you have the cash in your hand, you can buy their goods. If you have not the money, it makes no difference to them that your wife or child is sick, that you are out of work or that misfortune in any guise has come to you. No cash, 110 goods. The benefit Is theirs. The hardship is yours, iuicl your only salvation is the kindly merchant at home, who cannot bear to see his neighbor suffer even though he knows that the money that should have been spent with hiin has gone to strangers for a fancied saving of a few pennies. You ask him for the favor, and you get it too. Then comes the question, Do you save anything in the end? You will surely agree, If you have had much ex pcrience in this line, that you do not. You pay for correspondence and for transportation, you take your goods on faith, as the boys trade jackknives, "out of sight and unseen;" you take all the risks of damage in transit, you pay strictly cash in advance, and when you got your goods you discover as a rule that your home merchant would have sold you the same quality or better for less money. Then you would like to trade back, but your city dealer or mail order house is not at hand, as your home dealer is. Von cannot ao to hiui and get the goods made right or get your money bade, as you can with the Bucyrus merchant. Von have paid your money, and you pocket the loss, because you cannot help yourself. You are dissatisfied, and if you are like some people in Ohio you will go to the local merchant and ask him to trade you good goods for the worthless stuff you have had shipped in. We have not attempted an exhaustive discussion of tills subject, for it is too large. Keasons might lie multiplied without limit, but we have merely sug gested a few of the most apparent ties which should bind every man and wo man to the home dealer so long as the goods desired are to be secured at home. It Is farsighted policy, It is loyalty, it Is present economy. And this applies to every business, includ ing printing. Don't forget the printer. War on Dandelions. ' Topeka, Kan., recently had a dande j lion day, when nil citizens were ex | peoted to go down on their knees and I dig lip the weed, says the Spokane i Spokesman-ltevlew. Unfortunately a ! snowstorm interfered with the pro [ gramme. One day, however, will hard ' iy be enough anywhere in which to i carry on the war. Tin to must lie con- I stant vigilance ami constant effort Various methods have been suggested i and employed by different persons in | past seasons, with more or less success. ! Gasoline and kerosene poured on the ; plant are said to effectually kill it, but may also have an injurious effect on the grass if care is not exercised. A : good knife and elbow power produce i good results, though the exercise is rather wearying. It is well for citl- I zens to talk with one another, get the best results of experience and then go to work. Hut, whatever the method, \ let the pest be thoroughly cleaned out. Being interested iu other people's troul'vs is festering in:_rr;itittulo unci working for your own undoing. Who undertakes to energize inertia has a life job. Keeping up with the procession is a costly way of playing the fool. Being without imagination is equiva lent to being without trouble—also to being without everything that makes lil'e worth living. .
