In this day and age with te various oppinions numbering vith the population, we hardly jSee how we can say anything at all without hitting someone. .But it is not for the purpose of hitting any one that we s,ay Any thing. Our sole aim is to agi tate enough to cause someone Xo get stir enough, to make fuss .enough, to make the outside world notice us enough, .to send business here enough, to keep long enough, until we have opportunity enough, to get good enough, to enter the Kingdom ,of Heaven everv one of us. We dou'Ji know anything a .bout any old skeletons, hang ing around' Mansfield, we have not been here long enough and, furthermore, we don't want to know anything about them. If any of you fellows haye a skel eton In the closet, , you'd better Jock the door apd throw the kf y iu the well. Because gossip is a wretchid thiug and sometimes the newspaper is blamed for p irf Hung which can be laid at gossip's door. Don't say any thing about it if you dont want it spread to Kingdom pome, Willow Spriugs had a masqu erade roller skate party last Sat urday night and had the .band engaged to play for them. Young people from all oyer the country far and near came and a jolly good time was had, It was con ducted by men who were desir? pus of maintaining good order and establishing a precidant that their town was a good place to come to." Afterward everyone felt better toward one another anil loved each other better from this gathering of themselves to gether for each pthers wsllfare, socially. The town will always have a crowd to come tp it for the pleasures derived.

We juo objects of charity and if yon can't pay vs fair liv ing prices for honest work re ceived In return, we don't want it; take it to the other fallow. The people composing a party are the ones to blame, individ ually as to whether it is a decent affair or not Be sure y.ou are right yourselves and everything else will come out all right, as far as you are concerned. We don,t like to be too critical, but a .couple, once upon a time, became very fast friends, and after a time, the fridndshjp rip ened into love and th,en, with the inevitable following -of the old adage which says; "True lova neyer did run smoothly" she be gan. to attach some importance to the cute little smiles of other girls toward her future, and ber gan to complain to him, ha vaa surprised to see her take o much interest in that, part of the program so h began to study the subject. And he began to study the subject. He began to think that every one who smiled on him wanted to be his sweet heart, and he went hog wild, it was so nice to love and be loved. Her complainings grew mote bitter and he was more per plexed, H she tho't him flerting with other girls he hud cause to think she was flerting with other boys. She must be a wise old girl, to know all these things. Then he bgan to doubt her. Whon she thought he was dis honest, he would think she was a little dishonest. The final fuss came which broke two loving hearts: and a great gulf was es tablished betwecuthem aud they liyed miserable ever afterwards, all on account of the misstrust. So in the walks qf life among the towns people when you bo gin to be watched like a hawk riammoth Big Store Full of bargains as being a dishonest person you can look out for the other fel low as being just a little bit shady. And it will pay you to keep an eye on the fellow who is patching for you .to rob a bank, blow up a depot, or some thing else, for in most cases he is judging you by his standard, aud his standard is not a .very exhauked one in sweh cases.

She simply asks too much, she gives of herself vastly, with an un measured immensity. And she exacts a like spendthrift generosity, an unre served devotion, and completion of her own inarticulate longings for love md understanding. The things thai shears are essentially; subjective. Vaguely, she dwells in a starry world of dreams and shadows, and ahe wants-oh, how she wants! to be "understood." In her girlhood she sought a perfect friendship, teased those who really loved her by intensity of her desiie for an all an swering and all sufficing affection. From the most casual acquainten eesbe expects comprehension, frum her husband aud her1 children she re quires a devotion that shall be abso lutely satisfying, absolutely appiJ ciatlve,cons?ious of no other presence. She asks nothing concrete, tangible, possible, only a wealth of feeling so .rare that It may well be said not to exist. ' For she has never been able to learn that the human soul is, in its very es sence, an isolated thing. She refuses to .believe that happier women accept unoicstlonlngly that there is no human love that satisfies, no affection that can complement existaoce, no passion that quite fulfills. She has no conception of that sim pie and awful fact of our life, the ut ter loneliness of man's spirit. Khe falls to realize how the soul must meet Its Joys and sorrows, as It must meet its crises, alone. She seeks more than is In rain or dew, or in the son and moon, or on the earth." She frets ut her days and nights In tho search for the unattainable. . She wears out the affection of those who love her best and It is this thai strikes tin? keynote of ber actual tragedy by the foolish persistency with which she demands the impossi ble. -From a old clipping.

A Letter Prom o Soldierboy Indianapolis, Ind, Nov. 13 '08 Editor Mansfield Press, Mausiiold, Mo, Pear Sir;' Inclosed you will cad money order for ($1) ono dollar for which you may send me the Press until paid for, as I have many acquaintences around Mansfield. I would like to get the news from there as I have lots of hope for old Mansfield and her people. I inlisted in thetj. S. army at fittsoure. tiansas, June tain, , was sent to Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis to be assigued, when on August 4, 1 was assigned to the JOlh Inf. Co. D. at Port Benjamin Harrison, Ind. I caq say 1 like the Army fine, and I think it is a nice place for any young man, as the training does him good, we have nice quarters and plenty to eat. and only have one hours drill a day, parade three times a week and go on guard every two weeks. This regiment just arrived from AlasKa last .July, we had one month of Held manuvers last September and a 200 mile prac tice march in October which was a nice trip. We have our regu lar target,practice in tho spring. But we will have some shooting this month. I suppose everybody knows my pareuts who live at Beulah, Kausas, near Pittsburg, my father is section foreman at that place on the Frisco system With best wishes te the peo ple at Mansfield, I will close.

If s a funny thing to note the numerous articles in some of the more prominent papers on the mysteries of tlie unseen forces of nature, and many are striving, to get some knowledge of the mys terious spirit land. However some may believe, we, also have an opinion on the matter. It is natural for every one to want to know about the future, and it is well, but many are troubled about it and that, we will say, is well also, every thing is well. The history of creation witness es that the foundation of every thing is rested Upon love and trust.-lie trusted Adam and Eve to themselves to pursue their course, they disobeyed and be came anxious and have been striving ever since to get back to their proper course. The planits are even thrown out of their course and at once go to pieces. Men fret and worry and because he has failed to do his duty he blames everybody else. Your own evil thought draw you a little out of plum with th universal svstem and you at once become feverish and fretful, you 1 then want to know what the out come will be.andtlw farther you stray from the proper course of yourself the more anxious you are to know the outcome. Not until you get into your proper course will you be in shapn to know these mysteries, ,
