Advertising is no good," said th man in old clothes, "It nev er helped me none." The mil lionaire merchant smiled, "That Indian tried the feather bed." An Indian took a feather, placed it on a plank and slept orf it all night. In 'the morning he growled: "Paleface say feath era heap soft. Paleface heap ool, ugh!" Money expended advertising: an article of no merit is money wasted. Maybe that's the reason some people never advertise, When times of prosperity are with you prepare for want, is another way of looking at the old addage; ''In times of peace prepare for war." but you know it is never practiced by the ma jority of people. When things are prosperous we inveriably Mt about to have a good time and the future, or time of want, 1 4 the last thing to come to our thoughts, so wrapped up, are vr in Che occupation or enjoy wont in hand that we become fretful if the present moments become dull, and we slash out par cash to fill up the littie va cent present with enjoyment to pur sorrow in the future. Once upon a time, there was organized, a lodge, and had no ble and really commendable ob jects for the upliftpg of man kind, and all who went into it were very enthusiastic, and the first month or so everything went along smoothly. After a little while the interest lagged and one by one failed to bring up their dues, those who failed in this part numbered about fif teen. One month the lodge just liked ten cents paying their per capita. The dues were twenty five cents a month and if any one of J D Reynolds Is uow in full blast A lot of $15.00 Suits of Clothes at $10.00 The best line of Ladies Cloaks for the money that ever was brought to Mansfield.

Behold, what a thread line between success and failure Id the interest of our public schools, I wander how many stop to think what a blessiug it is to those who are growing up? Little do we realize the good these institutions are to us until we have passed the school age. If we would stop and think about the matter more seriously at the time when we are enjoying the blessed school days, many of us, perhaps would not throw these precious moments away like some of us have done. If we were compelled to pay our own tuition some of us would be out something like f Ju per year for our schooling. But, as it is. the tux payers pay it for us. But the way some of us waste these schooldays it stamps u with the indictment of sbere lugati tude toward our benefactors. Warning to Quail and Game. That famous nimrodand guide Irving L. Junes of the exchange department of the Mercantile Trust company, of St. Louis, has joined the Bryant campers. Ai Mr. Jones is large of body and slow of foot he sent his lieutenants Andrews, Wands and company ahead of him to trap the quail and tie them to conven ient trees, in this way Irving hopes that the birds will "flop" themselves to death and save him the trouble ef shooting them. Jones is a great favorite with the farmers around Bryant as he always comes well equipped with amunition, being a tender hearted man, has never been able to hurt anything so the game is safe. riamtnoth Big Store Full of bargains A Visitor the Corn King. J. B. Armstrong, of Shenan doah, Iowa, the con king of the land was here Wednesday, look ing for the Ozark mountains, and said that the tital given to thiseountry was misleading in the ex t ream. He was very in thusiastic over tho future of this country.' - The firm of Armstrong & Son of Iowa arc engaged in the pro duction of choice seed of many kinds, but corn is the main busi ness, and in an interview he gave out the statement that this country was splendid farming land: He has a nephew who is farming in Douglas county and went down there to look at his corn. The nephew showed him some corn which equaled that growu in Iowa, and the proposi tion was clearly brought out that the nephew was doing on $5.00 land tho verv same thing Iowa people were doing on $250.00 land. He has evidentally done much good with the fermers in caus ing them to use good seed and incidentally giving demonstra tions as to how to cultivate the land to the best advantage. Mr. Armstrong is spending considerable tint in the Ozark Plateau looking over the country and he will go from here to Tampa, Florida, "vhere he has his wiuter hoaie, He expects to visit Cuba and many islands this winter in the interest of the seed business, he is 78 years old and is as blythe as some 20-year-old. red faced and jolley. and can certainly talk corn talk, The persons who really do the country good are the quiet kind, meekly going forth in all the avenue of life with a steady movB for advancement. The grafter howls and snorts around with lots of nojga, Jike an owl, and suddenly quiets down until he's as still as a mouse and wlicu h is a mouse he is doing his deadliest sawing. A man of worth to a town or community has forgotten - about himself in the rememberance of those around him, his wife and babies are ever in his thoughts. Certainly, the things he is most ardent in pushing forward for those of his own family to enjoy in and around town are firstclass for his neighbor s wife and bab ies to enjoy If be takes any in terest in the home newspaper, and a man of worth could not do 1pm, with a careful eye he will watch that the paper advocates those things best adopted to the wellfare of bin family, and if the paper should waver from his standard he immediately has a talk with that editor in a friend ly way and persuades him into the proper channel if he can, and in every other public institution he will b'e found active. The man. most to be pitied, is the one with the large family, who has no idea of the bearing of public institutions, allowing his offspring to choose their own reading, study their school les sons when they may white at home, with no encouragement to more interestingly applying themselves. This Kind of a man is lopsided" in everything he undertakes. The man who is neglectful of public institutions is the same toword bis family, it is a sin, and the act will be puu ished sometime iu the future as sure as fate.

' VOY, OUKC CAMUZ21. ten af Former King of Spain and Great Explortr a Visitor In Amor lea first Man to Scalo ' Mount Ella. Waahlnfioa. Of all tho royal ana Imperial personates who hare visited America daring tho last hundred years there la none who haa ao large a claim upon tho regard and admiration of the peooie of the United states as Prince Louis of Savojr. Duke D'Abruxzt who came to America with th Italian fleet aa Italy's representative in the open lag ceremonies ot the Jamestown ex position. Prom. Norfolk the admiral prince visited aereral other cities be fore embarking for New York oa hit flagship, the Varese. In these modern times the sphere of activity of tho princes of the reign ing honaea ot the old world is of an exceedingly restricted character. For the most part they are debarred from emulating the prowesses of their an cestors on the field of battle, while in these days of constitutional monarchy they are precluded not only from play ing any political role, but even from manifesting any political sympathies. Their- efforts to make a name for themselves in the realms of science, of art and of literature are always handicapped by the difficulty of se curing honest judgment, according to ordinary standards, and by the conse quent suspicion of favoritism. In one word, if a prince of the Wood wishes to win for himself a niche la the tem ple of fame bo must perform some feat that haa never been accomplished be fore by any other man, no matter what bis rank.' Ha must do something that DUKE O'ABRUZZI. (Italy's Sailor Prince Who Has Made a Rtcord as an Explorer.) wins for him fame, in spite of his hav ing beon born on the steps ot a throne; something Intrinsically worthy of such lasting renown as to relegate to en altogether secondary place his status In the social system. Prince Louis can boast of having achieved this. As long as America en dures he will remain on record as hav ing been the first man to scale Mount St Ellas, while he cau In the same way boast of having beeu the first hu man being to make the ascent in Cen tral Africa of the loftiest peaks of snowcapped Mount KuwenzorL until then regarded as altogether inaccessl. ble; and until Commander Peary's last dash for the pole the duke of the Abruzzl held In the entire history of arctic exploration the record ot far thest north. As King Edward re marked at the meeting of the Royal Geographical society In London last winter on the occasion of the descrln-1 tlon of tho ascent of Mount Ruwen zorl, given by the duke, the latter still young, being but 31 years of age, and his past successes, unique in history of modern royalty, give splendid prom ise of still further brilliant achieve ments. Like most men really entitled to fame Prince Louis is extremely mod est, and quite averse to figuring in the role of a hero. In the clever book which he has written on his polar ex periences, and also in the descriptions which he has given of his ascents of Mount St Ellas and Mount Ru wen tori, the keynote has been the anxiety to give all possible credit to his fol lowers, and to efface himself. It is this modesty, thoroughly In keeping with the chivalrous character, that has led the prince to remain much in the background during the recent visit of General Baron Kurokl. The strain of old-time chivalry In the character of Prince Louis, and which has figured largely aa an incen tive to his deeds of daring, may be said to have been Inherited from his father, the late duke of Aosta, who re called so much to mind the knight of the middle ages that be seemed some how or another out of place in the lat ter half of the nineteenth century. The loftiness ot his principles and of his sense of honor were scarcely In keeping with the age in which he lived, and were hardly of a nature to fit him for the duties of modern government. Elected to the throne ot Spain, which he only accepted with the utmost reluctance and from a sens of duty, he contemptuously abandoned it after a reign of three years rather than submit to political compromises rendered necessary by the situation, but to which he could tfit head his conscience.
