What is the best thing in the world for a boy or girl? A mother! Better than the finest orphan's home; better than scientific sanitation; better than smiling attendants to whom each child is a problem merely and a duty. For to a child the mother is a soul sacrifice personified, a loving providence of the home all its very own. What is the greatest thing in the world for a mother—any mother? Her child, of course! It is the dearest part of herself. It saves her from heartbreak when the world looks darkest. What then is the greatest thing the state can do for the mothers and children whom misfortune is about to separate? To keep them together, of course, to preserve to the little ones this mother principle of the deity, to save to the mothers this savior principle of the child. Can such work be done by a state? It is done by the state of Illinois. It can be done by this state. Can it be done without waste of money? No amount of money so used would be wasted. But as a mat ter of fact Illinois saves money by this new and splendid beneficence. How does it do this? By a very Buy "Made-in-Tacoma" Goods Next Thursday is "Made in Taeoma Day."

THE FREEDOM OF THE FARM "I hope you don't mind If we tramp over your farm this after noon and picnic a while In your woods," cheerfully nuked the spokes man of a large picnic party as they walked Into the gates of the yard. "Not at all! Not at all!" laughed Uncle Charlie Seaver as he dropped his stockened feet from the veranda post and shoved up his specks. "Just mosy right Along and have a good time. The farm is yonrs for the day. Take that road near the corn crib and help your self. Step a little light though in goln' through those medders along th' crick, as I have never been able to 'sterminate that bed of rattle snakes In thare. But there's only a couple o' dozen of the pesky crit ters left. I'll get 'em ell soon. Better walk around the north pas ture where old Joshua is a pawin' and a bellerin' fer he's a powerful bad varmit and when he commands th" sun to run you bet he gits. That little ravine back of the woods is a fine place fer a picnic even if Hank Hawkins does say thet th' ice-dam at the head o' th' gully is weak and liable to bust any minute. I took some o' th' braces out of the dam yesterday jist to prove Hank Is a liar. "If that buck-sheep over In the orchard gets funny, one o' you grab him by th' horns and kick th' wool off him. He's been a mite too frisky since he nearly killed one o' the hired men. Don't let the young 'uns get to friendly with those hornets' nests in the berry patch below the grain fields. What! Goin' up th' road a piece? Why, yes, I reckon Wall. Weaver'll let ye in his big woods. Better stay right here, I give you th' freedom o' th' farm!"

Tacoma. *" j simple and sensible plan. This is the plan: To all mothers whose husbands have died or disappeared or are incapable of supporting a family the state pays a little income in money. It pays enough so that the mothers and children jean live together under the same roof; so that the fires may be kept burning on the altar of the hearth; so that these intimately dependent on each other in body and spirit may not lose out of their lives the sense of home. In one week in August, Cook county, in which Chicago is situated, paid out to these poor women ten thousand dollars for home saving. Experts say it would have taken three times this sum to have maintained the same children in orphan asylums. This is the mothers' pension system of Illinois. Does it appeal to you? Does it not warm your heart with a desire to make it universal? How would it do to forget Teddy and Taft and Wilson long enough to ask our candidates for the legislature how they stand on mothers' pension? Why not make it an issue? By I>on C. Nhafer. The Times Daily Short Story * THE AWAKKKIXG lt> Frank H. Williams JohD McKendry had picked up the paper calmly enough, had quietly scanned most of the read ing matter, and then, before con signing It to the wast basket, had turned to the society columns for a cursory glance. The third item in tho long column riveted his at tention with a concentration he had not thought possible. "Mrs. J. Van Meter-Bourne," the item read, "of London, Eng land, is expected in the fall to visit Mrs. Homer J. Underwood of this city for two weeks." Twice McKendry read the little Item and then the paper fell from his nerveless hands to the floor. "Mrs. J. Van Meter-Bourne" — liia old Bessie, to whom he had been engaged and who had thrown him over for a wealthy Englishman. Sometime, some where, he had expected to meet her, but now that the meeting was actually in sight, he dread ed it exceedingly. He had sworn to make her regret her action, and y<st, what had he done toward attaining that end? Nothing, ab solutely nothing, he decided. Here he wag where she had left him—a mediocre lawyer. Suddenly,' with more animation than he had had displayed for years, McKendry pulled open a drawer In the desk before him and drew out a thick book. Into this he delved deeply. "There's time yet," he tojd himself, "she won't be here for throe months, and during .that time I can achieve fame and for tune. It only needed her coming to awaken me. I've still got tlm^ to make her sorry she didn't mar- Stop Forest Fires, End Floods and Provide Homes UPPER—Typical mountain watershed form which fire lion been excluded for 4O years.

"I know more about the weath er and its effects on crops than any other man In the country. I can tell almost to a dot, what the yield In any crop will be this year and I'm going to use my knowl edge. It's lucky these statistics I began keeping when I was en gaged to her I've"kept up all th<»se years. Now It only needed the Impetus of her coming to make me put them to use." After a little more figuring Me- ■pwpw*— Kendry placed a number of re sults neatly on a fresh sheet of paper, secured his hat and made his way to the office of Robt. R. Holmes, the wealthiest man in the city. At first Holmes scouted the proposition which McKendry placed before him. Then he be-., came interested. "I tell you," McKendry cried, "one-fourth of the total wheat crop of the country is going to be put to the bad within two months. Look at these conditions and see if you can doubt it. Look at this, and this, and this." McKendry laid his finger on various portions of a big United States map spread out before him and told of conditions as he seemed to show must certainly come. At length Holmes was.*.. convinced and a contract, lengthy indeed, was signed between tha two. A little over three months later McKendry was a millionaire. His rise had been rapid, but his weather prognostications had been Infallible. As a result he and Holmes had cleared up a huge amount of money on the ~> rise in price of wheat. McKen dry, his air of prosperity well be coming him, suddenly gasped as his eyes fell on an item in" the society column of the paper. "Mrs. J. Van Meter-Bourn« of London, England," it road, "who has been the guest of Mrs. Homer J. Underwood, has returned to lmr home." "Well," muttered McKendry, in extreme surprise, "I clean for got that I was merely working to make an impression on her, I and now that I've found myself and have something else to occupy my' mind besides that old boyish love affair, I find that I don't care whether or not she was duly im pressed. " And with an air of extreme content McKeudry threw th» pa per in the waste basket and light ed another cigar. 4 GIiOKIOUS NEWS comes from Dr, J. T. Curtiss, Dwlght, Kan.
