I am especially pleased with hla positive and statesmanlike peeltloa on the paramount Is sue ef tariff reform, and his de mand tor an Immediate down ward revision. In sincerity, precise statement and compre hensive grasp of great princi ples and their application of the fundamental needs of the country, the speech Is Jeffer sonlan to the core.

Industrial and social rela tions, the full measures of the principles of freedom. Justice and progress upon which the republlo was founded. To all the Issues and every national need, Governor Wilson applies the Itole of right and common, advantage-' The reforms he ad vocates are far reaching, but they are necessary, aouad and practical. The speech will awaken and stir the national conscience and lead to a tri umph that will restore to the people the control of their gov ernment and Inaugurate a new and happier epoch In the land and development of the republic."

A certain preacher in Mexico was called one day last week to conduct the funeral of a twelve-year-old child which had died. He went to the home and waited for the neighbors and guests to gather, but they did not gather, only three adult persons coming in. Finally the preacher stepped into the room where the dead lay and there at the head of the coffin sat the bereaved mother and near her sat six chil dren of the home The minister went through with the service as best he could. As he finished and stepped outside the door one of the neighbors followed him and said: "I suppose you do not understand matters here. The husband of this bereaved mother, and father of these much-to-be-pitied little ones is now in the back yard drunk." Now what do you think of that? Should the churches have deserted that fami ly? This is called a Christian com munity, but it does appear that many of us are not working at it very hard. Mexico Message. Hoosier and McSherry Grain drills at A.

A rural postmaster tells this story of one of the patrons of his office, a boy of thrifty, not to say penurious stock. When the lad comes into the postoffice he will thrust his wizened face up close to the window and, in his slow, Yan kee drawl, inquire most earnestly: "Hev ye got any postal cards?" "Yes," the postmaster replies. Don't you wish you had a photo graph of your great, great grand father? Of course you cant have because there wasn't any photog raphy in those days. But your great, great grandchildren can have photographs of you. And you owe something to posterity. Miss Belle Johnson. "Haow much be they t'day? " "A cent a apiece."

Jr.'s Hardware. A writer in the Youth's Compan ion tells of an Ohio man's practical use of an abandoned farm. This man owns a 60-acre tract on which he no longer lives, and has planted the entire tract with trees. First he set out 35,000 Norway spruces, over an area of 11 acres. From that part of the farm he expects to reap a profitable crop of trees for holiday selling. In the place of the spruces, when removed, he expects to plant chestnut seedlings. By the time all the spruces are gone, the chestnut will come into bearing. Id other parts of the tract he has planted catalpa, black locust, box elder and sycamore. Within five years the whole 60-acres will be in forest. Thousands of farmers in this country could profit by this sort of planting. On many farms there are rocky uplands that would bear valuable forests. Farmers who wish to take advantage of the high price of lumber, cannot do better than to plant in the unused parts of their farms such timber as is best adapted to them. - Coleman's Rural World.
