This little story from life Is going the rounds of the newspapers:
A pretty, dainty little girl at once of the summer resorts has been not
ably neglected by the men. The reason for it is that many of the young
men who frequent the resort are dry goods clerks and suit salesmen who
can tell at a glance what a gown Is worth. The dress worn by this hand
some girl—her best—is a "dotted Swiss," costing, perhaps, at a bargain sale.
It cents a yard. .And worst of all, as revealed to the eyes of the expert male
appraisers, the dress was evidently made by herself
The girl looks very sweet in her simple gown, but—
Tou see. these fellows are looking for the daughters of rich men And
their exjierienced eyes tell them this girl works for a living and must use
economy to get her vacation.
Tou need not pity the girl l>oeausc she is a wall dower. She has doubt
less sized up the rlerks and salesmen while they have been invoicing her
clothes. The girl who has the sens <to suit her wardrobe to"her purse cares
Very little for the fortune hunters who ignore her.
She knows there are others.
The average man who does not deal In the commodities knows very little
about clothes. In a general way lie knows whether a girl looks pretty when
She is dressed and that is all.
More than that.
Every real man who is looking for a wife will have a high opinion of the
dainty maiden who Is able to get herself up attractively on v very little
So don't cry, little girl. If you can't afford expensive gowns.
Men—real men—don't want to marry clothes.
The Canadian Way
The way to "bust a trust"—in Canada—ls to bust It.
The Canadian government is going after the American tobacco trust In a
way that promises accomplishment.
The tobacco trust proceeds on the bold theory that the way to establish
• monopoly and make money is to kill competition. It has been quite suc
cessful in this country where we are all in favor of suppressing the "bad
trusts'' and none of us know how to do it.
In Canada it is different.
In order to do business there ttie trust Is compelled to pay a license.
This license is a sort of protective tariff. It is levied to protect the home
tobacco industry. As a matter of fart it does no such thing. It simply In
creases the price of tobacco to the consumer. The trust leaps lightly over
the license wall.
Now the Canadians propose to revoke Hie license and send the trust, hag
Snd baggage, out of the country The American company is doing business
there on sufferance and has no legal lights that may not be revoked.
The proposed method would be effective. It would be the end of all

that the effect of the president's visit

Captain Rowan became famous tho

necessary for President McKinlcy to
secure the co-operation of Garcia, the

Garcia puzzled the president until
someone suggested Rowan as the one
parson who could accomplish the feat.
So Rowan was sent for and given his

The hot air and smoke wafted over
the valleys is a menace to humanity*
and to all living things. He says

terrorizing townspeople in the moun

to be out after dark. Some of the
