I, what a blind, stu- Ke8p Your What a foo pid fool a woman ia who doesn't keep her children believing in her! Why, I'd rather see the faith and trust in one little, round nee that I know than to be called the most beautiful and the most youthful looking woman in all the world No woman can make a friend that can be to her what a child of tier own can hardly help being, if she's only half a woman. Why, see what they go through together, the mother and the boy who looks up to her with such faith and admiration. They face illness and disappointment and disillusion together the mother and the little boy and every illness and every disappointment and every disillu sion, instead of separating them, is just one thread more in the splen did chain that binds them so close that no human hands can ever sep arate thorn. w A woman who is ashamed of her children or bothered with them a woman who fiuds her boy a bore and her little girl a nuisance is poor, heartless, mindless creature, who doesn't even know the first conjugation of the verb "to live.' What would you think of a' man who grew so tired of the responsi bility of walking that he had his feet cut off so that he could sit in and invalid's chair and be rolled around the world the rest of his life? What would you think of a woman who put out her own eyes to get rid of the bother of reading? You'd shut shuch people as that up in an asylum for the feeble' minded, wouldn't you. Well, that's what ought to bo done with a woman who is silly enough to be ashamed of her own children. "The Splendid South" Its Awakening.

Chickens and egg at Joseph KobertJBottling Works. "The Southern people are open ing their eyes to the fact that the demagogues have merely been up to their old tricks that the filling 01 tne otuces nas oeen tne mam object in view all the time. This being true, we look for a speedy relegation to the rear of the agita tors. The South is not going to kill the geese that lay its golden eggs. If from the brief reign of the demogogue comes a clear vis ion of conditions and affairs about them, the people of the South may have gained something, as the case will then stand. Surely, it must be pleasing to everyone to think that the awakening has not been postponed too long." This is the climax of an edito rial utterance of the Washington (D. C) Herald. Our contemporary, which, like the Washington Post, has always been friendly disposed toward this section, reviews every phase of the developments leading up to the revulsion against the railroads, comments upon their dominant role in the industrial evolution of the South, admits they have been guilty of excesses, finds fault also with the popular attitude, and lays the blame largely to designing demagogues. It shows that these latter have taken advantage of the well known emotional Southern temperament, and of the National trend toward radicalism, to lash sentiment iuto an unreasoning and disastrous fury against practically all forms of capital. The Herald holds that the South is now realizing what it has jeop ardized by listening to the lure of I the agitator, that conservatism is reasserting itself and that the pen dulum is once more swinging back to sane, just, equitable and progressive methods. It says: "Railroad baiting and peanut politics have latterly gone entirely too far down in Dixie. Carried away by an excess of zeal engen dered in an hour of almost univer sal radicalism, the demagogues New York's Sunday Lost Some of Its Indigo Tint. New York, Dec. 22. With policeman as monitors prepared to stop any per forruance that exceeded the bounds of the "sacred or educational," the Sun day amusement promoters generally resumed business to-day. With few exceptions, the entertainments were such as had been given before Justice O'Gorman's strict interpretation of the Sunday closing law interfered, and, after two "blue" Sundays, re sulted in the adoption by the Alder men of a more liberal ordinance. The exceptions were the moving picture shows of the East Side, which were not allowed to open, though tke pro prietors of some promised to picture only biblical scenes. The peep shows of the penny arcades, however, were held permissible, a line of easy dis tinction being drawn between views that moved and those that stood still The theaters, opera houses and the higher class of music halls continued closed as before. Vaudeville houses confined their programmes to sketch es, monologues, stereopticon exniui tion and singing. The only departure of consequence from the week presen tation was that stage "business" was eliminated. Costumes, scene shifting and "make-ups" were barred. Dancing was also prohibited on the stage, but for those who would dance for their own entertainment the dancing acade mies were open. Skating rinks, too, were again in full swing. The police were embarrased at times In determining just what was or was not ' sacred or educational," particu larly In the case of the Chinese and Yiddish theaters, but the freedom from arrests of the day convinced police headquarters that the theatri cal people generally had observed both the spirit and the letter of the law.

The State of Arkansas has al ways been a fertile field for the novelist and for romance, but it has remained for Fred Raymond to transport its scenes into the dra matic field, taking as his theme a train robbery which occurred there some years back; he has woven melodramatic comedy about it which has already proven its worth by seven years of successful exist ence. Mr. Raymond claims that his play is founded on fact. Wheth er fact or fiction is really immate rial, for he has written a very in teresting story of life, of love, of mystery, of intrigue and adventure among the odd class of moonshine mountaineers that inhabit those hills, dealing with their lives, their habits, their customs, their social characteristics and peculiarities The scenery was painted from ac tual photographs of the various lo calities pictured and every charac ter is true to life. Dramatic in all 01 11s scenes ana melodramatic in many, it never transcends .the bounds of probability and no one need strcixh the imagination to be convinced of its realty. So true to nature is it in every scene that it seems to be a bit of life actually transplanted from its original set ting to the stage. The play is called "Old Arkansaw" and will be seen at Reynolds' Opera Bouse on Wednesday night, Jan. 1. Holiday Fares. Spend the holidays at home. Re duced fares via. Mobile Sc Ohio R. R.

The question having been raised as to whether or no the Red Cross Phar macy will refund the money if a Hyo mei outfit does not do all that Is claimed for it in curing catarrh, they want to state positively that this guarantee Is an absolute fact. A guarantee like this Is the best proof that can be offered as to the curative powers of Hyomei In all ca tarrhal troubles. You do not lose a cent in testing Its healing virtues, they take all the risk. If you have catarrh, try this won derful medicated air of Hyomei. It does not drug or derange the stomach, but Is breathed through a neat pocket nLaler that comes with every outfit, so that Its medication reaches the most remote air cells In the nose, throat and lungs, where any catarrhal germs may be lurking. It quickly de stroys them, heals and soothes the Irritated mucous membrane and vital izes the tissues so that catarrh is no longer possible. You can lose noth ing by giving Hyomei a trial, nothing but the catarrh and that is a good riddance. . The price of the complete outfit Is but f 1.00; nothing if It falls to cure.
