Ah, wit) we never get throug h with this delightful subject. Will the women who write' and the men who think never decide, once for all, that the woman of 40 is the only invari able winner on the map? J "'To be beautiful should oe the object in a woman's career j until she is 40, aftei which sh e ! should become a power," said ja modern French, writer, and it was also a Frenchman who ventured to say that a woman either be abol ished or take the veil. What is stranger, this view is indorsed n you see an editor with V watch mm. tk It oe ig bills and disracin his profi-.-sion. Never give money to an editor. Make him trade it oul fie likes to swap. Then when you die, after having stood around for yens and sneered at his little jim crow paper, be sure and have your wile send in for three extra copies by one of your weeping children and when she reads the generous and touching notice about you forewarn her to neg .lect to send fifteen cents to the .editor. Lt would overwhelm him. Money is a corrupting thing. The editor knows it and what lie wants is your heart felt thanks. Then he can thank the printers and they can thank their grocers. Take your job work to the one-horse job office and then come and ask for half rates for church notices. Get. lodge let ter heads and stationary print ed by the job idiot, then flood the editor with beautiful thoughts in resolutions of re spect and cards of thanks. They make such spicy reading, and when you pick it up tilled with those glOwing and vivid mortu ary articles, you are so proud of your little paper! But money scorn the ti 1 thy thing. Dou't let the pure, innocent editor know anything about it. Keep that for sordid trade people who charge fo- their wares. The editor gives his bounty away. The Lord loves a cheer ful giver He'll take care of all the editors. Dou't worry about the editor. He has a charter from the state to act as a door mat for the community. He'll get the paper out somehow; and stand up for you when you ruu for office and lie about your pigeon toed daughter's ta.ckey wedding, and blow about '.your big footed sons when tliey get a four dol lar per week job, and weep over your shriveled soul when it is released from your grasping body an' smile at your giddy wife's second marriage. He'll get a'o ig The Lord only know - how but the editor will gft there somehow. Huut- le Herald. by Miss Janet Achurch, an English actress. Now. why? Yes, why? There are those of us who be lieve that a good thing is al ways desirable, and by that same token we believe that if a woman is charming at 20 she should be even more so at 80, and altogether "killing'' at 40. You may not be able to tell off-band whether she is 40 or 48. In fact, you may not. be able to guess within 10 years of her age. That is one of her principal charms. The 'woman who shows her age perforce loses one of her strongest hold s on man; and what does a worn an live for pray, save to capti vate the hearts of the ma! e population? Mine. Recamier was a belle at 80 years; Cleopatra upset the world at 40; Aspasia was a power in Greece long after the bloom of her youtn was lied; Mine, de Stee' had a whole host of worshipe s at her feet, in cluding Lord Byron, when she was gray-haired but why enumerate? The whole history of the world goes to show that the contention of tiie knowing ones concerning the potency of the woman of 40 is founded on the strongest of facts. This is only another respect of the eternal feminine. The girl of 17 may reign in the his torical novel, and her sway may be absolute, but it is not the girl of 17 who reigns in the world at large, and who influ ences life as she is lived in the twentieth century. The girl of 17 may get busy with our hearts once in a while, but the woman who is 38 or 40 plus is the only charmer who cuts ice for any great length of rime. All which revives the old quotation: What a strange thing is man, and what a stranger Is woman! Post Dispatch. An Irish horse owner whose horse had been prescribed for by a veterinary surgeon ran into the latter's office and, with tears in his eyes and his face the "picthur of bad lunch," cried, "Oh, Dr. Moriaty, I'm poorly; the powder kilt me en tirely!" "The powder!" cried Dr. Moriarty. "Why 1 didn't tell you to take it iu a paper tube and put one end in the horses mouth and blow hard." "Yes, sorr," cried Pat, "I put the powder in the chube, aud I put the end of it into the horses mouth, with the other end in tny own, but; begorra. he blew first,'' John Wood and Miss Mattie Smith, ol Monroe City, were tbe pleasant guests of Mr. and Mis.

The following poem was written hy Gen, William Haines Lyttle on the eve of the battle of Chickamauga. The author had a premonition of death that night, and was killed Jie fol lowing day: I am dying, Egypt, dying! Ebbs the crimson life-tide fast. And the dark Plutonian shad ows Gather on the evening blast, Let thine arm, Oqueen, support me- Bush thy sobs and bow thine ea r, HeaUen to the great heart se crets Thou and thou alone must bear. Though my scarred and veter an legions Bear their eagles high no more, And my wrecked and scattered galleys Strew dark Actium's 'fatal shore; Though no glittering guards su round me, Prompt to do their master's will, I must perish like a'R itnau Die the great Triumvir still! Let not Ceasar's servile min ions Mock the lion thus laid low; 'Twas no foeinau's arm that felled him! 'Twas his own that dealt the blow His, who pillowed on thy bosom Turned aside from glory a ray His, who drunk with thy ca resses. Madly threw a world away . Should the base plebian ra,bble Dare assail my fame in limine. Where my noble spouse, Ojta via, Weeps within her widowed home. Seek he-'. Say the gods have told me Altars, augurs, circling wings That her blood with mine com mingled. Yet shall mount the throne of kings! As for thee, star eyed Ej;yp ti an! Glorious sDrceress of tiie Nile! Light the path to Stygian hor rors With the splendors of thy smile. Give to Cesar crowns and riches, Let his brow his laurels twine; I can scorn the senate's tri umphs, Triumphing in love like thine. I am dying, Egypt, dying! Hark! the insulting foeman's cry; They are comiug! Quick my falchion? Let me front them ere I die. Ah! no more amid the battle Shall my heart exultiug swell; Ists and Osiris guard thee Cleopatra Rome fa -e well. Female Weakness Cured. I was troubled with severe female weakness for over six months. 1 was treated by six very prominent Physi cians without any marked benolit. My last doctor was a skilled specialist and he told me theonly hopo lay in an operation. I heard of Smith's Sure Kidney Cure and after using it for one month I tind myself cured, and even the doctor who last treated me now pronounces me well. Mrs. J H Faver Atlanta, Ga.

Wei', that depends somewhat, one may keep bees for severa 1 seasons togather without get ting any honey from the bees, yet il that one should have ft nit trees, it miy pay even if no honey is obtained, as by the help ol the bees causing the fruit bloom to become fertilised thus causing the fruit to set. We furnished one party near here 15 colonies of bees partic ularly for the .benefit of Ins fruU interests. He has quite a large Interest lor this p u t of Missouri. He is not troubled if he does not jet uny honey at all: yet il the bees are given any attention they Will certr in ly yield surplus honey, which makes them doubly profitable, The time has been when bees, even when kept on the let alone plan, which inmost instances was the case, did well, as there was large areas ol wild bloom, but since so much of this wild flora has been broken up or destroyed. i -'s to do well must have ne-' ' attention so as to produce bees just when a known' ;ey producing pla nt will be . i b'oom. While clover Coming i bloom on an avera ge of about June 10th and Spanish Needle about Aug. 15th. The re are many honey producing plants but the two mentioned are the principle ones for Mis souri. Bees get considerable honey from fruit bloom, but use most if not all of this for brood rearing and this brood is produced just right to get them mitured and ready for business for white clover bloom and n there are not much Iruit bloom or if it is to cool or wet lor the bees to work on the fruit bloom when it Is wet The bees should then be fed to produce the same results as if the bees should have had good success with it. This is what brings success with the bee keeper. Then again when the white clover honey flow is well start ed, the bees should be induced to go to work in the surplus chamber by placing combs in it or even cutting out some of the combs from the lower chamber containing the young brood and placing them in the upper chamber. This induces the bees to go up there to take care of this brood, and will also start the storing uf honey if any is coming in. This pro ceedure will secure'a surplus of honey if to be had, while if the bet s are let alone they would more than likely prepare to and swarm, and so iu most in stances this early honey (low is past before the bees are in shape to secure any surplus honey If increase is wanted the bees will usually swarm any way later or if they do not swarm naturally they can be divided and then have plenty of time to buildup again and get strong iu ncmbers when the fall How comes on. No one would, or could ex pect but very poor success if their farm or stock or any oth er business was neglected as are bees in mauy cases, and yet beespiy well in spite of neg- We Give Them Away.
