Here is a toast I want to drink to a fellow I'll never know-- To the fellow who's going to take my place when it's time for me to go- I've wondered what kind of a chap he'll be and I've wished I could take his hand. Just to whisper, "I wishyou well old man," in a way that he'd under stand. I'd like to give him the cheering word that I've longed at times to hear: I'd like 10 give him the warm hand clasp, whenever a friend teems near. j I've learned my knowledge by sheer hard work, and I wish I could pass it on To the fellow who'll come to take my place some day w hen I am gone. Will he see all the Had mistakes I've made and notenll U-e littles lost? Will he ever ;utss of ihe tears they caused or the heartaches which they cost? Will he gaze through ihe failures and fruitless toil to the underly ing plan? And catch a glimpse of the real in tent and the heart of the van quished man? I dare to hope he may pause some day as he toils as I have wrought And gain some strength for his weary task from the battles which I have fought. But I've only the task itself to leave with the cares for him to face. And never a cheering word may speak to the fellow who'll take my place. Then here's to your health, old chap! I drink as a bridegroom to his bride I leave an unfinished task for you, but God know3 how I tried. I've dreamed my dreams as all men do, but never a one came true. And my prayer today is that all the dreams may be realized by you. And we'll meet some day in the great unknown- out in the realm of space, You'll know my clasp as I take your hand and gaze in your tired face. Then all our failures will be success in the light of the new fonnd dawn So I'm drinking your health, old , chap, who'll take my place when I'm gone. The Mysiic Worker. Animals Remember Abuse. To tease any animal is unwise, and even dangerous. Animals never forget. A writer in Farm and Fire side shows how the dispositions of farm animals are made ugly or gen tle according as they are treated by the small boy. He says: "I know ot two little boys and an old family mare. The old mare has often been teased by one of the boys, and when he conies near she lays back her ears, and with flash ing eyes and snapping teeth tries to get at him. Sometime when he is off guard perhaps the chance will come, and who knows what will happen? The other lad always pet ted and played with the old mare and talked to her, and she will come to him and follow him about anywhere. He never teased her, and she shows her gratitude in her only way. Teasing colts, horses or other dumb animals shows a stieak of hidden meanness and should not be permitted. It also spoils the an imal. How much better to have them act from motives of affection rather than fear!" The Dumb Ani mals. Mrs. R. 0. Cranston accompanied her parents Rev. Thompson Penn and wife as far as Quincy yester day. Mrs. Sarah Linchum of Martins burg, is visiting J. D. Robey and family. Obituary. E Bailey McNutt, son of Dr. W. B A McNutt, was born on August 12. 1877. in Monroe City. Mo., and died Sept. 19, 1913. at the age of 38 years. The earliest boyhood days of the deceased were spent in this city. With his father he moved to Miner va, Ky , 'in the year 1885. At this place he attended the Minerva Male and Female College and graduated thereftom in theye.-.r 1895 and was chosen validictorian of his class. In 1896 he graduated from the Staun ton Military Academy and again won such marked distinction as to be chosen again as vnlidictoriani In j the same year he entered Cornell j University. In this institution he! completed the regular four year course in three years and received j the degree of B. A. He attended j another year taking post graduate work which lead him to the Masters degree. From this institution, after spending a few months abroad, he entered the Law School of Harvard University and graduated three years later. It is probably true that few young men in this part of the State were ever more thoroughly prepared to live and for the tasks of life. Mr. McNutt entered business in Califor nia soon after his graduation from Harvard. But ill health made it impossible to continue in business. Feeling that his health was too heavily taxed he gave up his plans and went abroad. During his sojourn abroad he visited all the places of importance and interest in the old world. His visit to Egypt and the Holy Land and especially the Church of the Nativity made a deep impression upon his mind religiously. When indnced to talk of his trips abroad and indeed upon any subject of pub lic importance, he became an inter esting companion. He was commu nicative and versatile and pleasing in his utterances though usually of a retiring disposition. In the death of this young man this city has lost one of its most cultured and refined citizens. Had ill health not frustrated his plans, as a youug man of the very clean est habits, assiduity and high and worthy aims, the world would not only have been served well, but adorned by his rare gifts and ac complishments. But it was other wise. While but a lad of 17 years of age Mr. McNutt joined the Christian church at Minerva, Ky., under the able ministry of Rev. Dr. Wm. Hall who was pastor there at that time. The funeral service was conduct ea trom tne Christian ctvurch in this city last Sunday afternoon in tne presence ot a large concourse of sympathizers and friends of the bereaved family. The hymns used at the service were of the family's own choice. They were, 'Beautiful Isle of Somewhere," "Lead Kindly Light," tenderly sung as a solo by Miss M. Buell, and that hymn of truthfulness, "Sometime We'll Un derstand." The surviving members of the family are Dr. and Mrs. McNutt, one brother, Harry, of Rolla, Mo., and two sisters, Misses Lillian and Ethel, to all of whom the sympathy of the whole community is extend ed. Fred Smith has sold his farm near Hurd school bouse, 9 miles south of this city and will on Thurs day, Oct. 2 sell at public sale sever al head of horses, mules, hogs, cat tle, chickens, turkeys, farm imple ments, feed, some household goods Col.

Bargains We love to give bargains as much as you love to get them It's a part of our duty to you to sell goods as low as we can and. to quote special prices whenever possi ble. But it is our greater duty to you to see to it that neither we nor you shall be tempted by a low price to buy anything not worth having. The true measure of a bargain is quality not price. . It's what you' get, not what you pay, that counts. Bargains here arc genuine, true, sound, perfect plums that occasionally drop from the trees of trade. They are always goods that are truly worth more at the time you buy not merely goods that at one time may have been worth more, and they are never goods that were made expressly to sell cheap. For such goods are never bargains at all. You'll find in our ready-to-wear depart ment Wooltex coats and suits so reasonably "priced that they represent real bargains any time you buy them.
