Talking Too Huch.
He talked too much when he went to
woo, and the maiden turned him down;
she wrung her hands and she cried out
"Shoo1" and she wore a gloomy frown.
I or girls are human, as all men know
wherever the girls may roam: they don't
like alocas whose jawbones go and clack
till the cows come home. He talaed too
much whan he went to work, and speedily
be was fired; the merchant said: "You're
the blamedes' clerkl You make all my
patrons tired. For folks don't come to a
merchant's store for bargains in noise and
wind; so chase yourself from my humble
door and let all your talk be tinned '' He
talked too much on the village street, and
his thoughts were always stale; he wiled
too mach where the sages meet, and he
talked too much in jail. He talked to the
chimney sweep, be talked, talked all the
livelong day. and talked when he was
asleep. And now on the poorhouse path
he wends, and lingers for me and you; for
we'll never put up assy grass, my friends,
if talking is all we do. Walt Mason.

was immediately summoned from the
city and everything done to revive the in

dence points to the fact that the young
man was thrown from a horse upon his
head sometime during Saturday evening
and that he had laid out on the prairie all
night and all next day until Sunday even
ing whan he was accidentally discovered

A Little Quiet.
Is it just "a little quiet" in your
town now? Is business just a
"trifle slowi" II it is, the thing
for you to do is not to sit down
and wait for times to get better;
go to work instead. I) you can't
sell more canned goods, spring
bonnets and hardware than you
dfrJ last year, don't go around tell
ing everybody. Emulate the pa
per in your community and look on
the bright side. Advertise what
you have on hand that is season
able. Aid anything in the line of
a public enterprise that is before
your community. Talk optimis
tically to your friends and neigh
bors and help stiffen their desire
to do things and improve your
home town, Cities, towns and
communities directly reflect the
kind of people who go to make
them up. If things are not com
ing just right, get out and work a
little harder. If you have a com
mercial club or a board ol trade,
be a member; don't just pay your
dues and leave the balance to the
others. Attend the meetings and
help your friends, your competí
tors and your enemies, if you have
any, boost the town and its enter
prises. The agricultural and livestock
season is all right; the outlook is
excellent in all lines, on a general
If things are going wrong in any
particular town, look, to the cause
of a committee 'to set it right.
These are vital days in New
Mexico. The future is assured
and those cities, towns and com
munities that wide-awake citizens
god business men are goinir to ad
vance tbe most and prosper are
the places that have live men, who
are not afraid to look the devel in
the face and deal with him accord
ingly. Very few communities just grow
because they cannot help it. A
few big cities just bappned hut
most of them were made. What
is true of metropolis is true ol the
village. If you dont always want
to live in a village, don't move to a
city; build one.
Putting water on tbe land ig what
reclaims the desert; putting the
energy and enterprise into a com
munity is what makes the city.
It things a "little quiet' start
something. Albuquerque Herald.
