Let "Self" be crucified and slain, And buried deep; and all in vain May efforts be to rise again, Unless to live for Others.

Mr But Ten ' Days Remain in Which to Work for the Pi ano. Contest Will Close Tuesday, Jan. 27, at 3 P. M. No use to shout about the virtue of the pitino or other prizes. All have become familiar with them. Now is the time for steady deter mined effort, the kind that wears and tears and makes character in the doing. Every one of these con testants who have been working for the prize will be the better for the effort even though there is only one piano and only onewho cau get it Who is to be the one? That is to be the momentous question. Do tlpy at times see the vision of ihe dray stopping at their door, the men union., tramping into thf houso with the beautiful instrument, the reward of their prowness and en deavor? How much interest did you take in such a dream? Have you not dreams of your own? And how would you feel to have them realized? Don't you think you would have very much the same feeling could you in some way as sist or have assisted in the realiza tion of some such laudable ambi tion? Try it and see. Put forth the effort Bear in mind some of the contestants whom you would like to see a winner and then go out and work. Every time you spend a dollar put it some place where you can get a vote coupon and then turn it over to your chosen candidate. You won't be the only one doing this, and how do you know but what your little help will turn the trick and put the prize where you want it? You people who get out of yourselves,,once in a while and do something for somebody else, are beginning to learn the true secret of a happy life, and once you get in the way you will keep it up forever you will speedily see that the millenium is no fickle dream but 'a blessed reality, to be brought about by just simple means. If when you do a kind act you should fatally wait for the gratitude you might therefore miss the op portunity of doing mother, and failing to get what you have fool- ishly desired, lose all the joy of life j or having got it, lose the other j cnance of being satisfied. Best keep on trying then; what is done for others you have done twice for your self, for what is your end and object Lizzie Miles Agnes Mudd Virginia Fields Lucy Zeiger Alena Knott Catherine Lawless Gladys Young 58.575 48,441 3-4 26.412 1-2 20,125 14,875 10.725 5,425 EdtturJ well was here Roy Moose, oi spent p-Tt oi city.

If you're right, don't trouble about the spoils of victory. God has faith in the man that believes in himself. There's a difference in occupying a seat in the church and filling a position. Your danger is not so much without but within. The stars shine the brightest when it is the darkest. Torches are best companions on the the dark of the moon. Grapes have to be pressed before we get the wine. Spices are more odorific after they're pounded. The oak grows faster after being shaken by the wind. If the Lord gives you a crown wear it and don't be above your Master. There never was a landscape without a cloud. There never was a rose without a thorn. There never was a smile without a tear. There never was a bitter with out two sweets. Display of dress proves that we want to be better looking. Virtue constructs while vice de structs. Evolution of the mind is the de velopment of the body. Man is the only creature of self culture. Sparrows use skill in building nests but the first forest had the original. B.'es use great skill in building coll? but the trees . of Eden had as good honey. The nightengale and lark inspire all creation with the evening an them but they don't use the same notes. Evolution of man led him from the tent to the modern mansion. Thoughts and actions build char acter like brick and mortar build In the drug line, more than any other, people demai:d a quality guarantee. Therefore, the quality of floods handled by a druggist is one of the most important elements of his business - for it is th? back bone of rcpntation. The retailers' success depends largely on the hor.'-mg of trado marked, advertised i iods. The trade-mark is the u.nufactura's stamp, whereby he assumes sole responsibility for the quality of his goods, and because good goods de pend upon identification so that they may be asked for by name, recognized, recommended and call ed for again. What is r? fair price? What is the ritfht price? It is but nrtti '-i that the buyer of drugs or any other kind of in' ichandise should wis!) to save money whenever possible. Vu ii thy 0'iver of drills is nut fax!".! with qu.'.lity he is apt to wast-" u:m ey in trying to save it. As dru;', buyers ere handicapped in jiidin.,; quality, they must rely on trr, c druggist just as they rely on then doctor. In selling goods there must be n definite margin of profit to cover the cost of doing business and an other fair margin to yield the deal er a livelihood. Druggists who sell some items at cost, or less than cost, must sell other goods at an exhorbitant profit in order to bal ance things up. Real economy will always be found in trading at a store like ours where quality of goods is in the first consideration, and where every thing is sold at a fixed and reason able profit. We buy goods as close as any one and take advantage of all cash discounts and we sell at such reas onable prices that every customer is sure to make his total purchases at as low pi ices as can be had else whcie - lower than the average cost elsewhere.

Peter was a great man but he had a high temper. Mrs Lehenbauer's Record Chickens. Mr3. Dan Lehenbauer says it pays to have pure bred chickens and it pays aLo to feed them well. Her eighty-five Rhode Island Reds . lay three dozen eggs every day. Their morning feed consists of a gallon of wheat thrown into some clean wheat straw which covers the floor from four to six inches. This makes the hens work for a living and makes them healthy. At noon the hens are fed a mix ture consisting of one gallon of bran, one quart of ground alf".! and one quart of meat scrap. - In the evening the flock is given one gallon of .corn. Wifh this very good plan of feed ing the matter of supplying water s not nep looted. Plenty of fresh, clean, we mi water is given three times a day. The fact that Mrs. Lehenbauer has a high grade of pure bred chick ens and gives them excellent feed and attention are the reasons for the three dozen eggs which bring almost a dollar each day. 800 ARTICLES Pcpuj.tir Mechanics 7.1.!

Do you know that there are more people who "sponge" on a newspa per than there are people who "sponge" on their relatives? When a man comes into the world he re ceives a free "ad" and when he dies his bad debts are overlooked by charitable editors. All during his life he asks and receives favors from the newspapers. If they speak well of him the flattering notice is received in silence. If his acts are criticized, he talks of a damage suit. He desires favorable mention and he desires it often. In fact some men have an idea that a newspa per is run expressly for the purpose ol keeping them before the public and that too without money and Without price. Bucklin Herald.
