With the worn: a and the kids ar rayedagalnl the stocking schedule the Payne tariff bill Is almost doomed as It Btauds. If there were no "joker" In the new tariff bill Mr. Payne would not have beeu so vigorous in I la defense Just to think the new president has been in office over a mouth and no- aody called a liar yet. How times have changed. The season approaches when the av erage smail boy would rather be a pitcher than President. Mr. Croker Is another to discover that it is a long time between Irrlga tions when passing through the two Carolina. W. J.

Rnfus inquires whether broncho buster is a specific fur b.onchllk It is not generally so scheduled. Our medical editor is nut filling thie week, but we veutnre the opinion that broncho busier is chiefly emytny (d to reduce the nervous, irritable condition of a certain species of the equui caballus. Our office boy con firms ua In thU opinion. Clarrlssa writes to ak If a lambent flame is particul trly efficient in mast ing mutton. We never heard it so de elan d. It is usually associated with miraculous happenings, but we be lieve it is generally credited w'tb light only. You will remember that Virvil speaks of its playing most vly idly about the head of lulus, but not a hair was singed. No, we do not rec ommend It fur its heatiug quallies. Rueben Inquires whet her kempen- felt is largely used in the manufact ure, of mattresses. We consider that Rueben Is groping in utter darkness. We do not see how the word could suggest beds -or bedding unless it he the fact that an English Admiral of that name one made bis bed iu the Atlantic, and if we remember rightly, he took with blm a numeious crew and the ship itself. Ask your father to Hnd in his old reader the poem which ends; But Kempenfelt is gone; His victories are o'er; But he and his eight hundred men, Shall plow the wave no more. A suspicious looking epistle asks whether salt rheum Is a speelfl'; for rheumatism. Subscribers should un derstand that we can not hope to sol icit the standing cards of reputable pbyslcans with our right hand, and give out free medical advice with our left. It is not from want of resource ful knowledge, skill and wisdom that we refuse any reasonable request, but we must defer to professional eti quette andwell established c istoms. Let Us Rest Yes rest physically and mentally. Would that teaeh-rs, preachers, writ ers, poets, and all others leave out a- bout ninety per cent. It overwork? us all to retain even ten per caul of all the advice, warnings, promptings, and stimulants lavished upon us. Cut we especially plead for the worthy farmers who are so deluged with a1 vice about what to do and how to do It reminds us of a friend of ours, a diet fiend, who used to overwhelm us with advice and literature on the subject of dietetic. One book in par ticular, sent for our perusal, con talned several hundred pages. Much of It was good In its way. but It was overloaded with useless repetition and tiresome minulia.

These were selection, mastication, moderation. Pick out the right food; dou't bolt it, but chew long aud well. Don't eat too much Nine farmers out of every ten here In the Ozarks know they are not modeU In the management of their farms. They know they should have better stock, better buildings, better f.riu impltmeuUs, but they also well know that, under present condi tions, t hey c in not reasonably hope for a sudd jii realization of all their desires. They know their should provide a more generous ration fur tueir dai ries; tiicy know the binelits of a bil. auceJ ration: they know as well as j the nimbi wrlter.or flui ut lectnrer the good results of many things they would like to do It is so easy to outline tasks for others. In ten do's aud don't's we could reform the world, on papei! See how easy it is to set the whole Ozark region humming, In theory! Mere it Is' See how easy it sounds; Take out the t.-eeanrt stumps. Put in the grass and clover. Hew down the hills, fill up i lie hollows Fertil ize tha Mil: use barnyard manure, commercial ferthzers, oi cultivate leguminous plants, preferably, clo.ier. Supply humus by plowing under crops of rye and luck wheat. Keep good sti ck; cos that show a sure profit, hens that ly bountiful ly, hogs that will not eat their heads off! Aud be sure to feed generously and wisely; use abundance uiid variety: if possible, raise the abundance ami va ilety on your own farm, ve havs al ready told you how. Fonr snort I uses tell it all: remove trees, brush, and stumps; cultUate the solii fertil ize: let hill and hollow cancel each other and we shal1 ha.ie the level prai ries of Kansas and the climate of the Ozarks. And while yon are about it, fence your farm, put a fine fence all aiounq your Iarni, and put in all needed cro 8 fences; it will cost a tr. fie lu money, and the Blight exercise will give you a splendid appetite. Seriously, there is much to criticise about many of the present methods of farming in the Ozarks; and criti cism aud udvice of the right kind, giveu in the right spirit Is most desir able. But w all learn most slowly. It took 30 years for Iowa farmers to learn that exclusive wheat-raising meant ruin and Want. It h is taken he people of the O, ir.ts a long lime to learn that this is a stock and dairy country, but must now accept that veidict.

There are no spendid opportunities in the civil service. For the mast part a man Is burled In an office In Washing ton or elsewhere and has no opportuo" Ity for advancement. The tempta tion to remain in a place that pays from $1,000 to 11,(100 a year Is so great that a man whose education and tal ents tit him for something better In life remains in that position until old age poverty overtake him. Theae are a thousand people In the government service in Washington now who have lived Just that kind or life. They no longer fitt d for the work they d and it Is only the generosity and tender heartedness of the heads ol depart mcnls that save them from being turned Into the street to shift for themselves In their old sge. There are no opportunity In the civ il service, save on rare occasions. The government service offers permanent employment to good clerks. 1 fvzznszM Try us for genuine bargains:
