a wagon from one of the country
stores loaded with their flour, it
proves to be so good that it is only
a few days before you will see
those wagons again and loaded with

What to Forget.
If Vou would increase your hap
piness and prolong your life, forget
your neighbor's faults. Forget all
the slander you ever heard. For
get the temptations. Forget the
faultfinding, and only remember i
the good points which make you !
fond of them. Forget all personal i
quarrels or histories you may have
heard by accident, and which, if re
peated, would seem a thousand
times worse than they are. Blot '
out, as far as possible, all the disa-1
greeableness of life; they will come,
but will only grow larger when you
remember them, and the constant
thought of the acts of meanness or
worse still, malice, will only tend to
make you more familiar with them.

Flag in Missouri.
Jefferson City, Mo.. Feb. 22.
Missouri is to have a state flag if
the bill for that purpose introduced
in the house by Representative N.
R. Holcomb of Kansas City becomes
a law. In design the proposed flag
differs from the stars and stripes in
Cent of the Creameries of the U. S.
that it has but six red stripes in
stead of seven, and in the blue field
there is the word "Missouri," with
24 stars arranged rectangularly
about it. Explaining his design,
Dr. Holcomb said that Missouri was
the 24th state to enter the Union, '
and the 1 1th to come in after the
original 13 had joined issues. The .
six red stripes and five white j
stripes make up this total of ,
