The Influence of Kind Words. By Ray Risner. The home in which kind words are never used is a home of unhappiness. The father and mother should always make it a rule to speak kind words to their children, and teach them to use the same in the home and all other places. If the children have been taught to use kind words in the home, as a rule, they will speak the same in their schools, to their friends, to their inferiors, to strangers, and to animals. The influence upon the speaker: The person that uses kind words will gain friends, reputation for amiability, keep alive his kindly feelings, produce images of beauty in his mind, and gain for himself love and gratitude. We never know what influence kind words have upon our hearer. It will shame him out of his anger, it will comfort him in grief, and soothe him in pain. Kind words have great influence up on the children. A word of kindness may be remembered by a child all thru his life. A kind word to the misanthrp ic person will do much toward bring ing his love back to mankind, cause the wicked to change his way of liv ing, lift up the weak, and cause a smile upon the face of the aged. When we compare kind words to angry words, bitter words, and pro fane words, we can see at once it is better to use the former than the latter. If we wish to bring up our children in the right way, we must teach them to be kind and use kind words. I remember a little incident that occurred in the city of Chatta nooga, Tenn. A poor little news-boy was going down the street, and on his way he saw some boys teasing an old man. He crossed the street to where they were and spoke in a kind tone, "Boys, why are you teasing this old man? Should we not respect the old age?" The boys knew they were in the wrong and asked the old man to forgive them. Here we see what an effect the kind words had upon the bad boys. It is almost impossible to over-esti mate the influence of a kind word. Years after the speaker has forgotten it or the occassion upon which it was spoken, the hearer will feel the result of the encouragement it gave him, the difficulty it smoothed, or the sorrow it comforted. Especially to the weak, the aged or the erring, should we offer these aids in life's rough path. Costing nothing, they may prove pearls of the highest price. They have the wondrous property of never prov at Norway Lake this week. Lindgren and Linman are moving |i harmful,'either"to the speaker or the hearer. They cannot injure, they the school house in Dist. 14 back about 12 feet from the road and will put a new foundation under it. J. H.

Cherish then, a kind heart, full of love for your fel low creatures, and kind words will spring to your lips to bless and com fort all around you. KANDIYOHI.

A highly interesting feature of our County Fair, this year, will be a pic torial exhibit, prepared by the State Forestry Association, illustrative of forestry, and designed especially to so inform the voter that he may cast his ballot intelligently on the State For ests Amendment to be voted on next November. The exhibit consists of four large wooden panels, one of these is cover ed with large photographic views of rough, rocky and sandy lands, denud ed of their former covering of forest trees, and now lying utterly waste and useless. There are more than a million acres of such lands belonging to the State of Minnesota. The Con stitution requires that they be sold at not less than S5 per acre, for the bene fit of* the School Fund. But nobody will buy them and so they must be as they are a bad advertisement for our State, paying no taxes, hideous, fire blackened and repellant to immi gration. By the side of this panel is placed another, showing lands of an exactly similar character, but covered witn thrifty trees in all stages of their growth. It is shown how trees will take root and grow, sometimes to im mense size, when the only hold of their roots is in crevices in the rocks or in seemingly infertile sand. Plant ed with young trees and preserved as State Forests, such lands will in time produce timber to the value of from $2 to $10 per acre every year, thus net ting the School Fund a large annual revenue in place of a single return of $5 if sold. The other two panels are filled with cartoons and photos some of them amusing, bearing on the question, "How shall I vote on No. 9, the State Forests Amendment?" Read What the St Paul Daily News 8ays: "Sealed Orders," a photoplay, re plete with thrills and tense dramatic situations, began a two weeks' engage ment Sunday afternoon at the Metro politan. The pictures are remarkablo for their distinctness and achievement in motion photography. Various sea scenes of European navies are very entertaining and instructive. The story is one of struggle between the navies of Germany and Russia. The plot is cleverly developed, and though highly fictional in places, the dramatic interest is well sustained. Love, treachery, duty, heroism and sacrifice in the graphic portrayal. A battle scene in which a beautiful young woman risks her life' to save her wrongly imprisoned husband is particularly thrilling and superbly acted. This picture will be seen at Dreamland Theatre Thursday evening next To miss this feature will be. to miss one of the most scenic, artistic and exciting pictures ever shown in this city.
