Want to Be Pitcher.
Whin we were a kid we utl to play h:ill :i good deal, and wu rumuin bcr thai, there Mure several of us who wouldn't, play unless uc could be pitcher. Since s u havu gruwn up e tlnd that, many of us have not gotten over tin1. Iialilt. Hue can't lie tliu whole works wo won't, play. It crops out In the church, In politics, and In public enterprises. As long is a man can run and boss things lie will stay In the Katne. When some other fel low gets hold of the lines It's differ cnt. The trouble Is that too many of us Imagine we are cut out for gen erals, when the Lord Intended us for privates. Sometimes the wrong man gets to be general but It rarely occurs that the wrong man Is a private. In every town you will llnd men sulking In their tents, like Achilles of old. Hut Just Inipilre Into the thing a lit tle and you will tlnd out their griev ance Is because they could not run things. About tho only consolation a sulker get Is In seeing some other fellow take his place and do the work better than he could. Don't be a sulker. If you can't pitch, get out and play right Held, and If you can't do that, carry the bats. I f you are the best pitcher In town the people will f-oon llnd It out and you won't liavo to carry bats any longer. Craig Chautauqua. Preliminary arrangements for thu holding of a chautauqua In Cralgdur Ing the summer are now under way, but. the committee IshavlngadlllU'iilt task In arranging for talent to suit the dates that they have under con sideration, as1 efforts are being made to secure a time that the (Jralg inter tainment will not conlllct with other towns hereabout that are holding at motions of a public character. Dates during the latter part of August appear to lie the time favored by most of our people, but practically all the propusli Ions that thecommltteu have received thus far have been for luly dutes, and as a lust iesort.it may become necessary to accept dates In .luly. or defer theiiroject forthlsyear. Our people l""e started a little late with their Chautauqua proposition, as most all assignments lue already been made, and thus It become- an impossibility to secure some talent that Is desired, but the committee is Insistent In ll.s elTorls to .--cure only standard attractions, and the public, may rest assured that the Craig Chau tauqua will he of a popular character anil strictly hl;h class in every way.

Killed Instantly. Thomas B. Cain, 25 years old, 5:i2 West Chestnut street, St. Joseph, Mo., was Instantly killed, April In, 11113, when he stepped In front of Hurling ton passenger train No. 32, In an at tempt to evade a freight train coming in the opposite direction. The acci dent occurred Just above Hie bend In the tracks north of the Francis street depot. Cain, with Ids fattier, William Cain, and brothei, Lowell, were walking north on the Uurllngton tracks when they heard the freight train whistle behind them. The father crossed the tracks and Cain followed him. He evidently did not see the passenger train coming south, or else misjudged Its speed. lie was nearly across the tracks when the engine struck him, the pilot tearing a hole In his fore head and crushing the back of his head. lie was employed at the street rail way car barns. He Is survived by his wife and two small children. The deceased was horn near Fill more, Andrew county, leaving there about 15 years ago, and at one time was a resident of this county. His grandfather, Undo Thomas Cain, lives near New Point. The funeral was held Sunday, April HI, Ills uncles, .lames and Thomas, of near Oregon, were In attendance at the funeral. Those Who Stand Fast. Thu theory that shop girls and fac tory women, or that women and girls howsoever honestly employed, adjust their morals with respect, to their pay envelopes Is untenable. You might as well say that these people, whose numbers run Into the tens of thousands, havu neither souls or con science whereas the fact Is that, as a rule, running probably to nine cases out of ten, they arc practicing the highest quality of self-denial, are unacknowledged heroines and guard their honor as the onu thing In life which Is not to he tainted nor stir tendered In the crush of commer cialism. Away with nauseating slulf about the "one more unfortunate" and the young women who IrtVu gone wrong-- as women have, and men, too, since the beginning of time and let there be some recognition of that other and larger company of women work cin, many of them for a lifetime, who have lived their days blameless in thu sight of the world and are doing a man's work for a woman's wage often solely In order that loved ones of their kin may eat their bread In comfort. Do whatever can he done to secure Juslur compensation for working girls; that Is right enough, but let it be on thu basis of fair dealing and not on the pretense that such women aru constitutionally Inferior In their code of morals or their perceptions of that which is permlssable of a woman If she may hope to face the community without reproach. Josephine Is Killed. In death as well as In life, Mlssou it's Chief Josephine, thu record breaking milk cow of the I'nlverslty of Missouri, served thu cause of sci ence. Last week Josephine was killed by the dairy department of thu College of Agriculture in Columbia for thu sake of gelling Information about her great milk producing poweis. , Hut the wonderful achievements of Josephine were the cause of 'her deat h as well as of her fame. Science knew that she did unusual things In her way. Science asked why and how. Josephine herself must answer. And her answer meant death. Ity a thorough exainlir.it Iqji of her milk producing organs, veterinary sci ence hopes to bu ablu to dis cover thu secret of her great powers. Might it not be possible to impart somewhat of this secret to the aver age cowv And then, Josephine was 11 years old and had ceased to tie of much value. During lull, Josephine was taken over thu state In a special car, by thu State Hoard of Agricult ore, and was on exhibition at the various towns of our county, and was at I'm est City, March to, mil. -Wu are pained to learn of thu I death of Mrs. John Turney, Jr., which occurred suddenly at her home .In Forest City, Wednesday last, April jnth, lUI.'l.

"Young man, when you buy a buggy, be sure it's a Studebaker" Sound advice from the man who has been driving one for twenty years. When you buy a Studebaker buggy you are buying nil the skill, experience and science in buggy building that half a century can produce. You are protect' ing yourself against the mistakes of younger builder. You will always be proud of the Studebaker nnmeplate, for there isn't a buggy on the road that is its equal for style, luxury and good looks. Flexible bent-reach gear, graceful lines, solid cor ner, plugless body, double-ironed shafts, are a few of the special Studebaker features. The new close-fitting shifting rail is enough in itself to make you buy a Studebaker buggy.

CJOI.nilN TKXT-"B ye kind oiw to another. tr-ndrhrMtd, foittlvlns eeh otlir evr-n as (Ind also In Christ fortara you." Eph. :.t! n, V. We are about to lose sight of Jacob, "a chest." and we shall hereafter con sider Israel, "a prince." White Jacob Is not so grand a character as Abra ham nor so lovable as Isaac, yet he Is much more like the average man. Tho story of his days of willing serv ice for Rachel (29:20): of Ubsn's deception and of his prosperity In spite of I.aban, can bo found In chap ters 29 and 30, while that of his re turn to Canaan Is contained In chap ters 31-3!. Though not Included 1st the selected portion of Scripture, we do not see how anyone can teach this lesson and omit the consideration of chapter 32. We therefore see before as (1) Jacob's diplomacy, 32:1-8; (2) Jscob's prayer. 32:9-12; (3) Jacob's present to Esau, 32:13-23, snd (4) Jacob's wrestling. 32:24-32. A finger tip of Clod disabled Jacob, yet vanquished he Is victorious for Ood tho angel of Jehovah has tak en from this double-dealing, crafty rhlld tlint which hindered nil tlmt was truest In his life. Not by com pelling but by yielding was Jacob en larged; by submitting he found thn tlirono of power. So much In prepa ration for the lciiAon of today. Not a Coward. I, The Approach vv. 1-3. Jacob had Just had a vlnlon of Clod (32:30); why, then, should ho fenr tho fnco of his brother? Hven so, however, he continued his measures of precaution nnd separated his children Into Ixtnh and Itnrhcl and sent the handmaids nnd their children nhead. Notice how ho places his most loved In tho rear of tho proccxslon which ho hlmielf led. Jacob was not a coward and, In deed, with his new-found power hi had nn need to be. Deforo ho had fled from tho face of his angry broth er, now with bnldnnss, and yet with humility, lie enters the presence of that samo brother even though hn had had no assurance aa to tho char acter of that meeting. II. The Meeting w. 4-11, Twen-ty-ono years had passed, days of great testing but of great blessing, before Jacob began this homewsrd Journeyi Jacob had learned the "up ward look" (v. 1) and his prevailing prayer brought Esau to him In hastn but not In anger. Now Esau lifts up his eyes (v. 5) and beholds not the fugitive of old, but a transformed, prosperous and richly blessed broth er. "Who arc those with thee!" ho asks, and Jacob at once acknowledges Ood ns the giver nnd tho blcsser. (See 32:20; .Ins. 1:17.) Jacob speaks of his children as Clod's gracious gifts. Although this Is everywhere thn teschlng of tho Illblo, yet how often Is It tho modern view, at least In many circles of society. Following the children camo tho handmaids and their children, then Leah and her children, and last of all Rachel and Joseph. At nnco Esau Inquires as to thoso gifts Jacob had sent ahead (32: 13-21), and Jacob replies. "That I might find grace In tho sight of my Lord." It Is well to notice that Esau refused this gift (v. 11) as a purchase prlco of reconciliation. Jacob Aatuts. From the marginal reading wo sen that Jacob's words when urging Esau to accept his gift were: "flecause I have all." Every child of Ood can truthfully say as much. (I Cor. 8:21: Phil. 4:18. 19; nom. 8:31, 32.) Thus we see tho astuto Jacob who had so arranged his affairs as to make gifts or not ns might bo necessary Is sur prised, not as at Tlethel when he mot Ood, but to find that Ood had so moved upon the heart of his brother as to remove for a time at least all danger. III. The Separation, vv. 12-15. We Infer from a study of Esau's life that Jacob did not deem It safe to make tho proposed Journey. "Discretion Is thn better part of valor." Ood does not demand nor desire rashnoss and needless danger upon the part of his children. There are three main teachings In this lesson, aside from those of the preceding chapter. (1) That In mat ters of supreme Importance In thn life of any man Ood is interested and ready to lend his assistance. Jacob ready to lend his assistance. (2) There Is the lesson that while men with anxiety seek to make plans for the Kingdom It is only as they fully commit themselves to him and allow him to dominate and to guide will they spell success In their lives. (3) And lastly, when Ood controls, when he has the victory In our hearts and our lives, he not only changes the attitude of our enemies towards us but changea our attltudo towards them. (Rom. 12:20, 21.) The Oolden Teat emphasises this last thought. The only way we can possibly obey Paul's Injunction wilt be as we are "In Christ Jesus." As we abide In, and recognising the ex ceeding rlchea of his grace, aa we recognize God's forgiveness as mani fest In Christ Jesus; as we submit to him, we will be able to "be kind one to another."
