"Governor Wilson's speech of
acceptance la marked with
broad vision and dear thought,
expressed la language every
Americas can understand. Aa a
business man and manufactur
er. 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. It contains
no appeal to passion and ex
cites no prejudice. Governor
Wilson has presented to his
party and to the nation, clear
conception of the truth that
the real struggle In the pending
campaign Is between the con
centrated powers of privilege
and the aspiration of the Amer
ican people to realise, In their
government, and their econom
ic. 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.

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

you owe something to posterity.

Hatching and catching, and feeding

There's a great deal of work about

Watching her. too, while she's eat

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

Good Things to Know.
When frying meats, fish, eta. and
the stove becomes greasy sprinkle
salt on the spots as soon as the fry
ing is done and rub. The stove
will be clean from grease.
When sweeping matting, to avoid
tearing the fabric slip a covering of
flannel over the broom. The flan
nel will take up the dust easily and
will save the matting much wear.
Here is a way to paid the iron
ing board. First tack an old soft
blanket about the board. Next put
a layer of cotton batting and over
this sew tightly unbleached muslin.
Lastly put on the cover and the
work is done.
The water in which onions have
been boiled is excellent for cleaning
gilt pictures frames. It not only
removes specks and dirt, but bright
ens up the frames in a wonderful
way. But it should not be used
until quite cold. Ex.
