Lord help me live from day to day,
In such a self-forgetful way,
That even when I kneel to pray,
My pray shall be for Others.
Help me in all the work I do,
To ever be sincere and true,
And know that all I'd do for You
Must needs be done for- Others.
Let "Self" be crucified and slain,
And buried deep; and all in vain
May efforts be to rise again,
Unless to live for Others.
And when my work on earth is done
And my new work in heaven's begun
May I forget the crown I've won,
While thinking still of Others,
Others, Lord, yes, others,
Let this my motto be,
Help me to live for others,
That I may live like Thee.

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
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

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.

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

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.
