To My Successor.
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
I'd like 10 give him the warm hand
clasp, whenever a friend teems
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
Will he gaze through ihe failures
and fruitless toil to the underly
And catch a glimpse of the real in
tent and the heart of the van
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
And never a cheering word may
speak to the fellow who'll take
Then here's to your health, old
chap! I drink as a bridegroom to
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
And we'll meet some day in the
great unknown- out in the realm
You'll know my clasp as I take
your hand and gaze in your tired
Then all our failures will be success
in the light of the new fonnd
So I'm drinking your health, old
, chap, who'll take my place when

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

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
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
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

family are Dr. and Mrs. McNutt,

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.
