I have a sweetheart very dear, -A d d -t m -a 9-t en: p ere ds t eelr For no one on this earth, I iear, Do 1 so warmly feel. My sweetheart's true through thin and thick And always stick to me; Should I feel bad, the other's sick, As tho' in sympathy. We share our goods what's ours is mine And mine is our's. too; My dearest wish I will resign Unto my sweetheart true. And would you ask my darling's name? Tis short, you'll not deny, A single letter spells the same Mr sweetheart's name is I. Silas Gorman Jenkins. Arlington, Md. Put Out of Commission. Abernetby was supposed to influence people by a brusque ness amounting to absolute rudeness. It is related that one aaya very voluble lady took her daughter, who was ill, to see him. "Which of you two want9 to consult me?" said Abernetby. "My daughter," replied the elderly woman. Abernetby then put a ques tion to the girl. Before she had a chance to reply her moth er began a long story. Aberne tby told her to be quiet, and re peated the question to the girl. A second time the woman began a story, and a second time he told ber to be quiet then she interrupted him a third time. "Put your tongue out," be said to the mother. "But there's nothing the mat ter with me," she exclaimed. "Never mind, put your tongue out,' he commanded. Thoroughly overawed, the woman obeyed. "Now keep it out," said Abernethy, and he proceeded to examine the girl Grand Mag azine. ouiciae ceases, to noid so much fear and mystery for peo pie who are situated like the editor of a southern Iowa week ly.

And Stone Pays the Freight. Senator Stone is writing some very interesting letters to his constituents these days, and let it be said to the senator's credit they are not franked at the government's expense Stobe is paying tbe freight Boonville Advertiser.

Tbe senator on his last visit to the Manhattan Beach dotel, allowed a pretty little girl, a western millionaire's daughter to be presented to him. "Tell me, won't you, senator, what political economy is?' "Political economy, my dear child," Senator Piatt is said tc hdvetreplied, "is tbe art of nev er buying more votes than you actually need.

It is never too late to break yoursclt of a bad habit If you would be happy let the other fellow do the worrying. He is truly a shiftless man who is too lazy to shift for himself. There's plenty of room at tbe top for tbe chap who is not dizzy-pated. A woman may not be able to do ber own cooking, but she can at least roast the kitchen help.

We do not believe Mr. Folk will say tbe above. He would be silly to do so. There are plenty men in Missouri just as honest as Mr. Folk. We do not believe that any one man can monopolize all tbe honesty in this country. Mr. Stone is Mr. Folk's opponent, and no man can say that Bill Stone is an outlaw, a Sabbath breaker, a grafter, a boodler or dishonest man. It would be a terrible slam on Missouri to sa that she had only one honest man within ber borders. If a man would say that he'd write him self down as a fool. Ralls County Times. Speaking. Judge A.
