WATCH YOUR GIRLS
The mother who allows a 16
year-old daughter to float
around the community in a top
buggy till 2 a. m.., with a count
erfeit sport with a weak jaw and
weaker morals, simply opens the
front door to grief and disgrace.
If you dont know what company
your girl keeps or what time of
night she turns in, your roar
when the gossips get busy will
sound like the wheeze of a dis
abled Jewsharp—just about as
touching ane pathetic. The girl
who insists on spooning with
with every male being in the cor
porate limits ought to be backed
into the woodshed and relieved
of her overflow of affection with
a number 11 slipper laid across
the hiplets. We would sooner
see a girl kiss a blind shoat
through a barbed wirefencethan
to have her change partners six
nights a week in the front parlor
with the lights turned low. It is
harder to marry off a girl who
has been pawed over by every
yap in the community than it is
to fatten a sheep on pinenpple
ice. You can't gold-brick

can fit a bath robe on a goat.

MINE HORSE WEARS
liveryman and freighter, is the
owner of a horse called Dan,
which does a trick in his every
day life the eqnal to the "stunts"
attempted by the trained ani
mals in the dog and pony shows.
This horse walks on snow shoes.
He does it not to amuse, but to
aid his master in packing.
It is impossible to get into
some of the country's prospects
with an ordinary horse and sled.
Dan, however, is accomplishing
the trick now, and will through
out the dead of winter.
his snow shoes he will get there
though the surface is covered 20
The shoes the horse wears are
round, and similar in construe
to those worn by men. They
are fastened to the horce's feet
with leather thongs. Once they
are properly attached Dan walks
along with as much ease as a
city horse would travel
Sam McDonald was the first to
make use of Dan's accomplish
ments this year. In the Sunset
district in which his property is
located, the snow has piled deep.
When he found it necessary to
take supplies through the other
day he took Dan and the snow
shoes and expects to make the
trip without trouble.
Plant breeding and selecting
has been our business for years.
We market the results in the
shape of thoroughbred vegetable
and flower seeds. They grow
