STREET CORNER SAGE, His Idea Of Gossip, Heard a feller say'in a free lekshure down at th' church one time thet on a gossip wuz the lowest down thing on airth, an' blamed if I aint a little bit in clinded to agree with him." The Sage "borrowed" a chew and proceeded: "Trouble with 'em is that when a bunch of 'em gits to talkm' an' tellin' each other whut's hap pened in their neighborhoods, they run out of facks an' git to guessin'at what happened. They ruin peoples rep-a-tations thet they don't know enny thing about a-tall, I'm in favor uy makin gossipin' a pen-a-tensury of fence." "Seems to me Uncle" re maked a younger man, "that I've leard some of you old timers over at the grocery store, get mighty personal in some of your conversations." "Yes" replied the Sage, reckon we do, but we don't aim tu tell nothin' on nobody thet we aint heard on re-sponsibul author ity er thet we don't hev grounds fer b'levin'. Y' see thet's dif fer unt." N6W Year's Resolute. "Now as it's gettin' along to ward New Years," remarked the Sage a few days ago in a hard ware store as he waited for the clerk to wrap up a nickle's worth of nails, "I suppose all you fel lers will will be makin' a lot o: New Years resolutions. I recol lect one feller 'at lived on the next farm to me, 'at used to spend a day or two makin' the dog-gone things. Usta have his wife write 'em nown an' he sign 'em. He might jist as wel endorsed a note signed by Chris topher Columbus made payable to Benedict Arnold fer all the good it done. In less'n a week he was back to drinkin', smokin chewin' an' cussin' worser an ever. Last New Year' at he lived there he only made one re solution, though, an' 'sfur as ever knowed he lived up to it to the letter." "What did he resolve?" askec one of the little audience. "He resolved not to make any more resolutions, an' th' nex day he got killed in a run-a-way." And the old man treated hmsel to a hearty laugh at his own hu mor, as he picked up the pack age of nail. "Charge 'em" he told the clerk as went out the door. The Gist of it, "Last December I had a severe cold end was nearly down sick in bed.

We're printing some mighty fine sale bills this fall. Week be fore last we got out an order of bills for a farmer north of town and they were So nifty that he couldn't begin to take care of the crowds that flocked to the sale. After getting the top price for every animal, implement and ar ticle on the bill, Jim, the auction eer, simply couldn't stop. The people just clamored for more. 'he farmer, in hope of driving them away put up his inotherin aw. Then he offered his mort gage for sale. A lifelong friend ship between two old neighbors was shattered as each tried to outbid the other. It was finally knoccked down to the richer man who was promptly knocked down by the poorer. He sold the weeds along the roadside. He sold a gold brick that he bought in Chicago during the World's Fair, He sold the ruts in the road in front of his place and then offered to sell the secret of where he had the sale bills printed. We can not give the results as to the re turns are not all in. They are bidding yet. That's the kind of sale bills we print. Give us a call.—Ex. After a girl has been wishing for several months that he would pop the question, she can act just as surprised as if such a thing had never entered her head. STEELE COUNTY.

After visiting all sections o? th« «untry, in -his professional capacity: Mr. ""Gorton oamc to thte conclusion that one hundred people in one section of tco country averaged about the samo a3 one hundred in any other soction and he sot about to build a program teat should have in it some thing for oach individual in'every au dience Tho wisdom of such a program has been fully demonstrated and its' succoss has been "most gratifying. Thorc are other readers—ether imper sonators—other crayon arti3t3—other sley modelers and other entertainers who. sirs costumed character recitals —but we know of no other one person who combines ail of these widely dif ferent features in. one .program.

He might have'won distinction in any one of the features of his entertainment —but tc have achieved success in aH of them, and to have brought them all together in one program, to delight the' public, is litltle short of remark able. LOOK TO WORKERS' SAFETY Elaborate Precautions Taken tc Pre vent Accidents in Plants Where Gunpowder Is Made? Y/orkers is gunpowder plants,. hes cver a storm comes up. adjourn to the watchhouses surrounding the plant proper and enjoy themselves till the storm is over. Lightning is not the only danger dreaded in gunpowder plants, however. Metal is dreaded—its hard surface may cause explosions—and hence on the workmen's clothes the buttons must all be of bone. The workmen's clothes must bo pocketless. so that they may not car ry matches or knives, and a workman, no matter how dandified bis tastes., must not wear turned-up trousers, since in turn-ups grit is harbored, and grit In a gunpowder mill is as danger ous almost as fire. In all the buildings of these plants not a nailhead or any sort of iron ma terial is exposed. The roofs, too, are made very slight, so that in the event of an explosion .they will blow off eas ily- The doors all open outward to make escape easy, and the plant is usually surrounded with a stream of water, into which the hands are trained tc dive at tho first sign ol aanger.
