At the International Sunday school convention at Louisville, In answer to the roll call of states, the reports were verbally given by the various stale chairmen.

The first white woman bom in Texas is still living she now has a population of over three millions." There was a pause of bewilder ment for a moment and then a voice from tho gallery rung out dear and distinct: "Send that woman out to Wyo ming we need her.

Oscar Kngle owed a great part of his success in life to his abil ity to select efficient assistants. Therefore it is not strange that when he made up his mind to marry again he summoned the em ployee whom he judged best fitted to help him select a mate. And it is quite natural that Jim Horton, being the company's ad vertising manager, advised his em ployer in the manner he did. Alter a moment's thought he wrote something on a sheet of pa per and handed it to his chief: "Wanted —young woman, edu cated, refined, experienced, to keep house for a widower with three young children.'' "1 didn't say 'beautiful'," said Horton; but you ought to have enough applicants to enable you to select a handsome one." When Horton reached the office on the morning following the ap pearance oi the advertisement, eight were waiting in the ante room. "Worked fine, didn't it?" ex claimed Horton. "I don't know," replied Bugle. "You see, there are eight of them so deuced pretty that I couldn't make up my mind which to choose; so I told them all I'd give them a trial." "Great Scott!" cried Horton; "you can't use eight housekeepers." "Of course not," answered his employer, testily. "That's why I called you in. You suggested this scheme." Horton was a good advertising man; but here was a problem out of his line. As a last resort he telephone his wife and laid the matter before her. For 10 minutes he remained at the telephone, and when he finally hung up the re ceiver his countenance shone with relief. Horton outlined a plan which caused the older man to wring his hand with thankful enthusiasm. "Horton, you're a genius," said Fugle. "I'll have the maid bring Gladys down at once." Although only 7 years of age, Gladys Fugle possessed histrionic ability to a marked degree. When told to enter the room where the When a rug or carpel is scorched by a cinder from the grate, paint the spot with water color and cam elshair brush In the same shades as the rug. Try mixing a tube of oil paint to the right consistency, and with it painting your faded last summer's hat. If the braid is good if is worth saving, for It can be reblocked. Ltale thread hose should never be worn by those with tender feet, for Ihev are not soft. Cotton is soft und is much better. One of the best tilings to remove grime from bath tubs is a cloth moistened with paraffin. Then wash the tub with clear water. To extinguish a candle hold it aloft and blow upward. No grease win then be scattered, Kor fainting, lay the person flat. Flowers Carnations DOZEN, 75#* Palms FROM 85r> UP General line of potted goods at reduced prices. The Rose Floral Co.

IF WOMEN EVER DO VOTE eight pretty candidates sat eyeing each other with unconcealed dis dain, and to burst into a violent lit of weeping, she obeyed without re quiring tiresome explanations. Horton's plan was simple. The young lady who showed the great est sympathy with Gladys' osten sible alliiction and comforted her in the most motherly fashion ob viously would possess housewifely qualities to the greatest degree. Through a side door left partly : open the two men anxiously watch ed the results of the experiment. Helpless embarrassment was the emotion most generally displayed, but. one or two grinned and one laughed outright, while others look ed indignant. Only one, a plump little woman who had sat unob trusively in the corner, acted. Gladys had hardly taken breath for her second installment of sobs, w hen this woman was kneeling be side the child with arms protect ingly around her, murmuring moth er comforts which the two eaves droppers could not hear, but whose nature her manner made quite ap parent. "Well," said Horton triuniphant • ly, "now what do you think?" like a charm," declared ' Engle with enthusiasm. "That's : the wife for me. I don't care ! whether she can cook or not. Now, you go in and tell the rest of them ' that I've changed my mind about employing them, and bring that I sweot little woman in the corner back with you." j A closer view strengthened En ' gle's convictions. Although no I longer young, she was extremely pretty in a subdued, gentle way, an ideal wife for a middle aged manu facturer with three difficult chil dren. "Let me see, I'm afraid I've for gotten your name," began Engle, |as she stood with downcast eyes before him." "Mis. llardwick," site told him in her soft voice. "What?" exclaimed Engle. "Oh, I see —a widow." "No; my husband is living," she replied; "hut he's out of work, so I am obliged to do something to help take care of him and the chil i dren." GOOD IDEA FOR XMAS A clever girl told nic the other day that she had worked out a "lovely scheme" for money savins; for Crist mas. and it struck me so favorably that I'm going to pass It along. She said: "I've waited until the last minute to buy my Christmas presents, for the last time. When the time comes I never have money enough to go around." Then she explained her method. She commenced in January to save 2 cents the first week, 4 cents Ha worths Teeth Without Plates la a device that docs away Willi a great amount of worry and dissatisfaction in plate work; a device you cannot break.
