You C3n saw wood. Most every body can do that Wood must be sawed and there must be thos who will step up and face the woodpile. So if you can't do what vou would like to do, why not do what you can do? Credit always migrates to where credit is due. Your energies may be horribly discounted at some jobs, where at others they might draw all men your way. The peo ple who "find their place" are the people who fit their place. MoFt certainly you have a chance to do what you can if you will. Everybody is a miserable failure at something or would be. The happy man is he who is a success at something that he can do well You can smile, anyway. And if there is one thing that this old world needs, it is a great Army and Navy of Smilers. Ex. To Kill Roaches. Mix one part of plaster of Paris and three or four parts of flour Place this dry mixture in a saucer or on a flat piece of wood or tin where roaches are numerous. Near by place another flat plate contain ing pure water. Supply a few in clines of wood or card board from the floor to the edge of the plate or saucer to give easy access. Float one or two thin pieces of wood on the water so that they will touch the edge of the dish The insects readily eat the plaster mixture, be come thirsty and drink. The water makes the plaster set in the intes tines and kills the roach. Such traps may be placed in pantries, and bakeries in particular, with good results. Missouri Farmer. D. R.

We sigh for the man who might have been great If he only had tried in a sensible way; We witness his fall and we pity his fate, We blame the foul chances that sent him astray; We think of the wonders he never has done, We dismally speak of the talent he had, And grievously, solemnly thinking him one Whom fortune has cheated, we murmur: "Too bad!" We never waste sighs on the poor little man Who strives without talent, ob scure and unschooled, i Who is daily doing the best he can, By worthiness urged and by de- j cency ruled; , We never have pity for him as we pass I Where, lacking fair gifts, he is trying to rise; His case never moves us murmur "Alas!" No matter how bravely he man fully tries. Ah, well, perhaps heaven, when heaven is gained, Will furnish the gifts the unnotic ed ones lack. And there the ambitious who have not complained May win all their hopes and their eagerness back; But never in heaven, if heaven is fair, May the talented ones who have fallen in shame Partake of the glory the worthy may share Or find any joy in the pity they claim. Chicago Record-Herald. The Folly of War. The war now being waged in Eu rope upon such a titanic scale, will of course, produce heroes, but in this age world will not forget the price that is paid. It recalls the fa mous reverie at the grave of Na poleon by Colonel Ingersol; "A little while go, stood by the grave of the old Napoleon a mag nificent tomb of gilt and gold, fit almost for a dead deity and gazed upon the sarcophagus of black Egyptian marble, where rest at last the ashes of that restless man. I leaned over the balustrade and thought about the career of the greatest soldier of the modern world "I saw him walking upon the bank of the Ceine, contemplating suicide. I saw him at Toulon I saw him putting down the mob in the streets of Paris I saw him at the he; d ot the army of Italy I saw him crossing the bridge of Lodi with the tri-color in his hand I saw him in Egypt in the shadow of the pyramids I saw him conquer the Alps and mingle the eagles of France with the eagles of the crags. I saw him at Marengo at Ulm and Austerlitz I saw him in Russia, where the infantry of the snow and and the cavalry of the wild blast scattered his legions like winter withered leaves. I saw him at Leip- sic in defeat and disaster driven by a million bayonets back upon Paris clutched like a wild beast banished to Elba. I saw him es cape and retake an empire by the force of his genius. I saw him up on the frightful field of Waterloo, where Chance and Fate combined to wreck the fortunes of their form er king. And I saw him at St Helena, with his hands crossed be hind him, gazing out upon the sad and 6olemn sea. "I thought of the orphans and the widows he had made of the tears that had been shed for his glory, and of the only woman who ever loved him, pushed from his jheart by the cold hand of ambition. And I said I would rather have been a ' Surprises Many in Monroe.

French peasant and worn wooden shots I would rather have lived in a hut with a vine growing over the door, and the grapes growing; purple in the kisses of the autumn sun. I would rather have been the poor peasant with my loving wife by my side, knitting as the day died out of the sky, with my chil dren upon my knees and their arms about me. I would rather have been the man and gone down to the tongueless silence of the dream less dust than to have been that imperial impersonation of force and murder." Punish the Greedy Ones. The inexcusable advance in re tail prjees of all kinds of foodstuffs is attracting the attention of na tional, state and city officers, and prompt investigation is promised. The Chicago packers were the firtt offenders. Immediately on the an nouncement of war they depressed the price of hogs about.50 cents per hundred, one of the most high handed outrages of which they have yet been guilty. While they were not able to hold down prices longer than a few days, in that short time they took a good many thousands of dollars out of the pockets of the producers. The prices of meats to the consumer were as promptly advanced, and also pries of all sorts of foodstuffs. We are confident the democrats of this congressional committee did a good day's work yesterday in the election of M. J. Lilly of this city and John W. Bingham, of Milan, as members of the state committee. Both are lawyers of ability and the right age to be forceful and aggres sive. They are well known through out the district and will at once command the confidence and good will of every democrat in the dis trict. We believe they will unite democracy of the second district one of the greatest in the state and secure a full vote at the polls in November. The fact is from every viewpoint it would have been diffi cult'to have found two men in the district who would better fit the situation or would work harder to bring this district up with the larg est majority in its history. Mober ly Democrat. With Europe at war, prices will necessarily advance, but the ad vance should be confined to legit imate figures, controlled by supply and demand. Greedy speculators should not be permitted to enrich themselves at the expense of the public. Whether or not government in vestigation will accomplish any thing remains to be seen, but the threat of it may serve to check un warranted advances. Wallaces' Farmer.
