Remember that we are brothers, so let's be good and kind to others, acknowledging their rights; why make Jones hotter than a hornet, by playing on your flute or cornet, when he would sleep o' nights ! Why keep a swarm of hungry chickens, which cause more trouble than the dickens, as golden spring days pass, committing crimes no man • can pardon, bv scratching in the neighbor's garden, destroying garden sass? Why keep a dog that is so batty it thinks it is outclassing Patti, or even Annie Case, when it spends all the evening howlihg. and pour ing diabolic yowling, ih torrents through its face? While of our goodly deeds we're 'spieling, we're stirring up much bitter feeling by little, thoughtless sins; *we keep a cow that makes Brown maddish, because it eats his early radish—#hy bark that neighbor's shins? pious works our jseal is splendid; to see all vice and sorrow' ended we go down in our jeans; and then we keep a rooster nutty that crows until it jars the putty from neighbors' window panes.

The United States department of agriculture's report on the condition of meat prices prevailing on March 15 shows an increase in the price of meat animals—hogs, cattle, sheep and chickens—of 16.4 per cent over the price a year ago this time, and an increase of 12.7 per cent over the average price for the last six years on March 15. That this jump in price was sudden is shown by the state ment from the same source thaï between February 15 and March 15 this year the price paid to producers for meat animals increased 8.4 per cent, while the increase for the same period during the last six years averaged 3.1 per rent. An-increase is to be expected at this time of year. Supplies of feed laid in to carry meat animals over thé winter are becoming exhausted, and as yet there is not enough pasture, even in southern states, to keep animals in condition. And this condition has passed the stage where the producer finds it more profitable to sell animals than*to buy feed. Most of the animals brought to market now have during the last few weeks been subsisting on They were, of course, held for the pretty expensive food, early spring rise in price. The large increase this spring is, therefore, to be accounted for on the theory that at tractive prices earlier in the winter induced selling which in normal times would have been deferred until the pres ent time. There must, however, be a reason for early advanced prices. The war has something to do with it, for large quantities of tinned and cured meats are being exported at prices with which the packers have publicly found no fault. The belligerent powers need food badly enough to pay well for it. and whether they like it or not domestic consumers have to pay as much. Thus the strong foreign demaud reduces the supply and forces upward the do mestic prices. This condition, however, is one of the by products of the war, one of the ways in which the Ameri can pays a tax on the traffic in munitions. But in the department of agriculture's report there is missing a vital factor. How does the increase paid by the consumer com pare with the increase received by the producer? LAUNDRIES AND DYES. Inasmuch as we have laundries everywhere, and the fondness'for colors is general, a statement which was re cently issued by the Laundryrneri 's National Association of America is of more or less local application. Careful investigation convinces the laundrymen's association "that the wash goods in which the colors are most ques tionable at present are red tablecloths and napkins and towels with red borders; blacks in cotton ginghams, which are apt to wash lighter and in some cases to 'crock' when the damp goods are folded. Black stockings will probably 'bleed' and turn lighter. Light goods with blue, red or black trimmings are apt to cause trouble. The troubles of the laundryman are not hard to un derstand. They had their counterpart a few years ago among the cleaners. The latter, after many expensive trials, decided not to guarantee colors in silks and other fabrics. This dispute between cleaners and weavers led to the disclosure that the silk mills—or some of them— adulterated their cheaper silks. For the summer and fall goods few "fast" colors have been obtainable. Hence the laundrymen's ala mi. But if the laund'rymen fear to guarantee fabrics as now dyed, what have they to do? The answer is easy—recommend the wear of goods con taining no coloring material at all. "In view of the sit uation," continues the statement already referred to, "\ve strongly urge our customers to use as much white goods as possible until such time as the permanent dyes will again be available." For months an active campaign has been conducted. More recently it lias been discovered that some laundry price lists have been revised. The laundry price for men's starched collars, which has long been 2i/o cents, is hence forth to be 3 cents. i I THE DISTURBING MOVIES. The fickleness of the moving picture heroes and heroines is amazing. It 1ms been just 22 minutes by the clock in the corner since that young man was convicted of murder, which he had doue for the love of a certain smil ing blonde, and here he is eloping in an aeroplane with a tall dark lady. It is a relief, of eourse^to know that after all he was pot hanged, but he migjit have waited until to morrow before changing his sweetheart or at least moved with her to the next show. It used to trouble us not little to see our>favorite stars made love to by a different young man each season and now it is nothing to see them falling in love and marrying and divorcing at least three young men in a week, and very likely two in one after noon. Of course, it may be that we should take some of the responsibility upon ourselves, and go to see each one of our heroes or heroines only once in so often, but as long as we know they are there, going through the fickle per formance, we might as well see it and be done with it to be wondering which young man is making love to which young woman this time. 1 The movie is a disturbing thing at best. It, develops a unique sense of romance in us so rapidly that we can scarcely see a big automobile rounding a comer without expecting to see another one in close pursuit. Every time we look up at a ten-story building we are a little disap pointed that there are not two or three people crawling down the front of it. We learn to judge the types in the performances on the screens and label everybody we in the street cars as a hero or a villain or a detective in disguise. Most disturbing of all, however, are these endless love affairs with their infinite variety of changing partners. The peculiar part of it is that each new arrangement seems perfectly satisfactory, should be .most unhappy if the certain young man did not marry the certain young*"woman, no matter if we were just as anxious for him to marry a very different young woman just 22 minutes ago by the clock in the corner. Twenty two minutes ago? The fact is that the young nlan may be making love to a different young woman—perhaps two three different young women—in every town in the coun try, at this identical moment. a as see In each nerfonnanee we or Kidnaped /V\.R.S« £\A. LEONARD a THE ELLSONS LOSE NO TIME IN FOLLOWING UP THE CLUE. "Nell," called Olive Ellson from the machine as her friend came to the door in answer to the doctor's lum mons, "get on your wraps and come along. I believe we have a clue to the whereabouts of the baby at last. I want to tell you about It." In a very short time Nell and lit tle Hal were seat ed in the automo bile and they were speeding down the road. "Tell me alt about it," Nell ex claimed, leaning forward eagerly. "About half an hour ago," began Olive, "Mr. Far rer, a farmer who lives about five miles from here^ rang the doorbell. He asked if I was Mrs. Ell son and said that he had read of our trouble in the paper, and had at once decided to come and tell us of a strange experience lie had had the very day the baby was stolen. He ov ertook a woman walking and carrying a baby, when he was a mile from the cross roads where we found the bug gy." :■ "X; \ . & ■ "Which way were they going?" ask ed Nell.

He could not get her to say anything ex cept that she did not live in these parts." "How long ago was this Mr. Far rer at your house?" continued Nell. "Oh, not more than half an hour. Gaylord came about fifteen minutes after he left ffnd you can imagine it did not take long for us to get started on our search." "Well, there is one thing, if a woman has started: out with a heavy baby on foot, she cannot be very far off," com forted #!ell. "That is What T told Olive." The doctor turned toward them as he spoke. "Yes, but it makes the affair all the more mysterious. What woman in her senses would plan to walk and carry a heavy child? Why did not she leave it in the buggy?" There wa s a worried wrinkle between Olive's eyes as she spoke. "Oh, she evidently planned on get ting rides," remarked the doctor. "She knew that a thorough search would be made all over the adjacent roads and that there was no chance of getting away with a buggy. She knew she would be able to get rides to help her self along and planned on it." "Who could do such a thing?" asked Olive sadly. There was no answer from either of her companions. "I think this Is Judson's corners ahead here. You say the man saw her going east from there?" asked the If 100 fAT GET MORE FRESH AIR BE MODERATE IN YOUR DIET AND REDUCE YOUR WEIGHT. TAKE OIL OF KOREIN. Lack of fresh air it is said weakens the oxygen carrying power of the blood; the liver becomes sluggish, fat accumulates and the action of many of the vltul orguns are hindered there by. The heart action becomes weak, work is an effort and the beauty of the figure is destroyed. Fat put on by Indoor life is un healthy and if nature Is not assisted in throwing it off a serious case of obesity may result. , When you feel that you are getting too stout, take the matter In hand at once. Don't wait until your figure has become a joke and your health ruined through carrying around a burden of unsightly and healthy fat. Spend us much time as you possibly can in the open air; breathe deeply, and get from Charles L. Joy & Co. or any druggist a box ,of oil of ko rein capsules; take one after each meal and one before retiring at night. Weigh yourself every few days and keep up the treatment until you are down to normal. Oil of lcoreln is ab solutely harmless, is pleasant to take, helps the digestion and even a few days' treatment hns been reported to show a noticeable reduction In weight, —Adv. doctor. "Yes, he looked back as he drove off and she was walking slowly down the road." replied Olive. The machine turned in the direction indicated. "How are you going to proceed with the search?" asked Nell. "I shkll comb this district with a line toothed comb," he announced. "1 shall call at every house and question every person I meet. Somebody Would surely sec her In the course of the af ternoon, and she would have to stop for food and shelter by night. It seems to me we stand a very good chance of finding the woman. Whether she had our baby or not remains to be seen." The doctor's tone was cheerful. It was such a relief to have something definite to do to prosecute the search. He had spent the best part of two days in traveling aimlessly about, trying to light on some clue. (To be continued.) * , % # # # # # # 9 # . # , 0 a „ o DAILY LESSON IN HISTORY.
