Fill their lives with sweetness. Speak approving, cheering words while their hearts can be thrilled and be made happier by them. Tne kind you mean to s m for their coffins send to brighten and sweeten their homes before they | leave them. 1: my friends have albaster boxes iaid away, loll ot fragrant perfumes of sympathy and of affection which they in tend to break over my dead body, 1 would rather they would bring jout in my weary and troubled ! hours and open them that 1 may be refreshed and cheered ny i them while 1 need them. 1 ! would rather have a plain coflin without a flower, a funeral with out an eulogy, than a life with out the sweetness of love and sympathy. Let us learn anoiri our friends beforehand for their burial. Post mortem kindness does not cheer the burdened spirit. Flowers on the coffin cast no fragrance backward over the weary way. The faults of our brothers we will write upon the sand; their virtues upon the tablets of love and memory. Ananymous. Christmas is drawing near and Prescott merchants should not miss an opportunity to place their j ads in The Picayune. You know I what you have but the buying : public does not. ‘ "Tell it,” CHRISTIANS MASSA CRED IN SYRIA Constantinople, Dec. A telegram from Jerusalem today states that Bedouins have massa cred the Turkish garrison at Kerak, a town in the i u l.ish villayet of Syria, and killed more than 100 Christian inhabi tants of the place in revenge for the execution of a Bedouin chief. The Bedouins, the dispach adds, now hold the fortress in the vicinity of which there has been desultory fighting between the tribesman and the goverment troops for the past year and a half. Kerak, formerly the capital of Moab, has a population of 3,000, of which 0,000 are Meslems The town is the last on the road from Damascus to Mecca, where Christians may reside. It stands on the mountain of Moab and may be seen from Jerusalem, 50 miles awag. No American missionaries are stationed there, the only one a British Missionary Society for Africa and the East. This is a branch of the organization at Es zalt and is composed of one mis sionary, his wife and one native worker.

GLOBE SIGHTS OF ATCHISON KANSAS Everybody has acquaintance, but few have friends. Some men want to show how miart they are every minute. A tittle-tattle among children oecomes a gossip when grown. An engaged girl is kissed a U al more than a married wo •nan. A man or woman v.ho reads loetry will finally attempt to write it. When a man asks a hundred lellars for a horse, he expects to get about $60. Most people condone a lie told ibout ages in procuring a mar iage license. Nothing looks prettier on a wc nan than a white apron with a ig b iw at the back. But the dog lin’t the only loaf 's- who is loved a good deal more h m he deserves. Probably a v\ id -wer enjoys a -- second wife as much as a widow enjoys her husband’s life insur ance. A small man always has one weapon he can use against a great big man: he can “talk” about him. The telephone is about the on ly thine: we know of that is a blessing and a curse at the same time. We are glad wa are not a pretty man; a pretty man is un happy except when a woman is admiring him. The trouble with the Friend ship hank is that most people want to draw out more than they put in. After a man di covers how lit tle he knows, he begins to suspi cion that possible others do not know as much as they claim.
