Tbc Death of Summer.

Following is a gem from one of the speeches of the late Sena tor Carmaek: "I speak, sir, for my native State, for my native South. It is a land that has no sorrow; a land that has broken the ashen crust and moist ened it with her tears; a land scar red and riven by the plowshare of war and billowed with graves of her dead; but a land of legend, a land of song, a land of hallowed and heroic memories. To that land every drop of my blood, every fiber of my being, every pulsation of my heart is consecrated forever. I was born of Ik r womb. I nurtured nt her breast, and when my last hour shall come I pray God that I may be pillowed upon her bosom and rocked to sleep within her ten der and encircling arms." Bear iu Mind A job half done bus to be done over a&iin. An animal in the feed lot not making a gain is pretty sure to be making a loss, When sheep are properly manag ed they will keep the fence corners and by-pat lis cropped clean. The buys ami girls must have social pleasure rarents should provide iiu' right kind. The advice given Horace Greeley, upon ins leaving home, by Ins mother, "Try and come home some body," is worth remembering. If you would have your work count for something, put yourself into it. Make it a part of yourself. If you rise superior to your disap pointment, whatever it may be, you are adding one hundred per cent to your power to conquer fu ture dilliculties. Ex.

' Years ago, I heard him sing it When a little boy at play, O'er the snow and thro' the wood- lands I could hear him every day: "Chicka-a-de-de-de-de." As I grew I knew him better; When I busied with my work He was always close beside me, And his song he'd never shirk: '"Chicka-a-de-de-de-de."

Outdoors, Pointed Arrows. A man who marries for money very often has to work overtime trying to collect his salary. All the paraphernalia of a civil engineer isn't in it with the strong arm of a young man when it comes to locating the girl's waist line. Many u man turns up his toes while waiting for his fortune to turn up. This would be a pleasant old world to get along In if men would pay their debts as cheerfully as they pay their grudges. Never strike a man until you are satisfied that he deserves it -and don't do it than unless you are sure of his class. While the plotter schemes for an easier way, the plodder gets there. Many a man is too stubborn to admit that he is related to a mule in any way. When a girl gets engaged she is nearly as hopeful of all she b going to get out of it as a man on his way to the races. There is nothing much really nat ural about some womon but the foundation and the frame wort There is some difference between a busy person and ah industrious one. Gossips are . always busy.

A Wisconsin authority states that a dairy farm of 150 acres in that state will yield a clear profit of $1,500 to $3,000 per year, and that land of that kind in Winconsin sells for $75 to $150 ner acre. You can buy just as good land in Missouri for $25 to $50 per acre, and the profits in Missouri are just as great as in Wisconsin, if not greater. Missouri Dairyman.
