To Tell the Truth for a Year.
A professor in * the Chicago
university has put himself
under a bond of $25,000 , con
ditioned that he tell the exact
truth lor a year. We will bet
$4 that he violates the condi
tions of the bond within two
weeks unless he lights out for
the wilderness and finds some
place where the foot of man has
never trod , where he can live
the life of a hermit , seeing no
man and consequently convers.
ing with no man. To tell the
whole truth as we understand it
would be to absolutely conceal
nothing. It would be to tell
every man he meets just exactly
what he thinks of him and like
wise as to every woman. If he
really undertakes to do that
and doesn't get his face punched
in before a week goes by then
we miss our guess. Tom Me-

Henry Hull who lives near
Peru has a genuine Stradivarius ,
made in 1722. He purchased
the instrument at an auction
sale in Missouri a number of
years ago and did not realize
what a prize package he had
drawn in the lottery of chance
until one day he got to looking
at the violin and found who was
its maker and its venerable age.
There is no doubt as to its
genuineness and Mr. Hull
treasures it as carefully as pos
sible to protect so great a treas
ure. He has been offered , and
refused $2500 forjhe instrument.

Mrs. Perla Beck , 819 0 street ,
is the owner of a violin which
bears inside its back the brand
"Antonius Stradivarius Ore.
raonenti Facicbat Anne 1718. "
The violin , which is believed by
Mrs. Beck to be a genuine
"Strad , " came from South Da
kota , where her brother , llev ,
R. M. Wood , now of Chillicothe ,
111. , secured it. A violin bear
ing a similar mark was recentl }
heralded in Broken Bow ant
the claim that the Broken Bov
violin was probably the onlj
genuine Stradivarius in the
state led to the disclosure o
Mrs. Beck's valuable relic.

No Excuse for Mistakes
This is the way the editor of
the Old Town ( Me. ) Enterprise
bears up under the tribulations of
newspaper life : "We apologize
for all mistakes nmde in former
issues and say they were inexcu
sable , as all an editor has to do
is to hunt news and clean the
rollers and set type , sweep the
floor and pen short items and fold
papers , and write wrappers , and
make the paste , and mail papers ,
and talk to visitors , and dis
tribute type , and carry waterand
saw wood , and read proofs , hunt
the shears to write editorials , and
dodge the bills , and dun delin
quents ) and take cussings from
the whole force , and tell our sub
scribers that we must have money
we say that we've no business
to make mistakes while attending
to those little matters and getting
our living on hopper-tail soup
flavored with imagination , and
wearing old shoes and no collar
and a patch on our pants and
obliged to turn a smiling coun
tenance to the man who tells us
our paper ain't worth a dollar
anyhow , and that he could make
a better one with his eves shut. "
1 FOR HAPPINESS 1
By SUSAN D. RODBINS

There wns a. heavy frown on Matil
da's face and her atom sllonco was
ominous. Her brother and his two
children felt her mood and ate break
fast quietly without speaking. All the
sunshlno and cheer of out-of-doors
were shadowed by the clouds within.
And though the woodland In view
from the dining room windows was
glorious In Its tints of autumnal color
ing , all within doors In the llttlo homo
was as somber as an empty church.
"What Is the use In living ! " Matilda
burst out at length. "And In such an
old , dull place as this. I'd about as
lief die. Why can't you sell the farm ,
Henry , and inovo Into civilization ? "
Henry's face wore a hunted look ,
but ho spoke patiently. "I've told you
a good many times. It would not
bring near what It Is worth , and be
sides , I can make a living on It ; and
you know I couldn't stand working in
a factory. "
"A living ! " Matllua laughed scorn
fully. "A bare existence , I should call
It. Yes , you needn't speak ; I know
wo all have enough to cat and wear ;
but wo don't live. Wo Just get along
from day to day. Wo never see anyone
to speak to from week's end to week's
end. I never heard of imch a place. "
"You must admit that you aren't
very neighborly. " Henry spoke mild
ly. "All the women about hero have
called on you and you haven't been to
see any of them once. "
"I don't llko them. They are coun
trified and dowdy. The country Is no
place to live In , anyway. I could stand
It In summer , but In winter It will
seem llko being burled alive. Now
when I WOP nnrnlnc money In the city
I used to live , though 1 didn't know
when I was well off. Hut there ! what's
the use to look back ? I've got to stay
hero , and that's all there Is about It"
Silence fell again , and when break
fast was finished Henry went out to
his work. Ho stooped a llttlo , and
looked tired and worn.
It was the spring before that Hen
ry's wife bad died. Matilda was a
bookkeeper in a factory at the tlmo.
The work was hard for her , and what
"I Don't Like Them. "
with the headaches that had begun to
trouble her , and the hot weather com
ing on , the outlook had been depres
sing. So it was with a feeling of re
lief that she gave up her position and
went to keep house for her brother
and his children. For a while , as long
as the pleasant weather lasted , she
had been contented. The work was
not hard , and the change Improved her
health. She did not care for the
neighbors , and held herself aloof. As
fall caino on she began to be discon
tented. Henry could not let her have
as much money as slm had boon ns < > d
to. She had a good deal of sowing to
do for the children , and when they
went to school she was lonely.
Things had gene from bad to worse
till , as she expressed it , she was des
perately blue all the tlmo , and ex
plosions like the ono of this morning
had come to ho of froqnont occur
rence. She went about her morning
work in a listless way. The children
watched her furtively. The girl put on
her things and went out of doors to
play till school tlmo. The boy , who
was the elder , seemed restless and
anxious. At length ho spoko. "Aunt
Mattie , " ho said , "is grandpa very
poor ? "
"No , not very , " she answered short
ly. "Why do you ask ? "
"I was thinking. " The boy hesitat
ed and then wont on desperately. "If
papa should die , I thought Ethel and I
could go to grandpa's to live. I know
you wouldn't want us. And then you
could go back to the city and earn
lots of money and have good times , as
you used to. "
Matilda gazed at him with dilated
oyes. "Who's been talking to you
about dying ? " she asked sharply.
"Nobody ; only the other night I
heard papa talking In his sleep , and
ho said ho wlbhed ho was dead llko
mamim , and perhaps ho would bo
pretty soon. Ho didn't know that I
heard him , but I did , and I cried all
the rest of the night. "
Matilda said no more. She waa
shocked. She noticed the child's face ,
which looked pinched and worried and
All the forenoon she brooded over
what ho had said. Why should Henry
' "Why , what's the trouble ? ' I pays.
'Ho laughed sort o' shopplah. 'It
sounds funny , but It ain't , ' ho nays.
'Margaret's taken to smoking. '
" 'Smoking ? ' I says.
" 'Vos , smoking , ' ho says. 'I don't
wonder you're astonished. I was my

but eho won't nivo it vip. She tsald
she thought It would bo BO soclablo to
sit by the llro evenings nnd smoke to

the things I did. I told her it would
make her as sick ns n horse , but ulio
said she'd got real mild tobacco , and
anyway she guessed everybody that
learned to smoke wan nick nomtf.
She said I must teach her how to do
It , and if you'd bollovo mo nho
brought out her tobacco and some
pipes she'd bought. Well , 1 naw she
was set on doing it , and I thought the
quickest way to euro her was to lot"
her have her way , but I tell yon I
was on nettles all the tlmo for fear
some of the neighbors would drop In
during the lesson , as she called it.
She took n few whiffs , nnd then she
turned as white as chalk , and I had to
carry her to the sofa and open all the
windows to air out. Well , I thought
that would bo the last of It , but the
next night when I went to take my
usual smoke , she had to go through
the same performance. She says she
thinks sho'll got the hang of it pretty
soon , and I declare I bollovo she will ,
for she hold out longer this second
"Ho stopped nnd sot there looking
down at the floor , an moody and trou
bled as could bo. I had hard work
to keep from laughing.
" 'Well , ' I says , 'your grcot-aunt.Iano
used to smoke , and I don't know'a it's
worse now than 'twas In them dayn.
And there was old Mrs. Plummor '
" 'Great Scott ! Aunt 'Sonath , ' ho
broke out. 'Do you think I want my
wife to bo llko these old smoke-dried
specimens ? '
" 'Perhaps wo can think up some
way out of the trouble , ' I says , sooth
" 'I've tried everything I can think
of to make her change her mind. 1'cr.
haps yon could do nomothlng with
her , ' ho says.
"I don't bellovo much in mixing
up In married folks' troubles , ' I says ,
'and besides , why shouldn't Bho smoke
If she wants to ? Of course I don't
see why she should want to , but then ,
I don't see why yon should , elthor. "
"Pretty soon ho stopped tramping
nnd went and stood by the window. 'I
suppose if I should glvo It up , she
would , ' ho said.
"A night or two after that 1 see him
again for a minute or two. 'Mar
garet's stopped smoking , ' ho says with

they come over to supper , and early

bringing her work in a bag. She
looked kinder white and miserable ,

she laughed in a way that made me
want to cry. I didn't realize oven then
what she was trying to do , and that
she was playing her trump card.
"Sho got whiter and whiter , till I
was pretty well scared , nnd then she
put down the pipe with Blinking hands

people's dogs , when he is paid
a regular salary for his services ?
It is lime this cruel , barbarous
and foolish business of killing
these poor dumb and innocent
animals was brought to a close
and some other method estab
lished to lill the want , if any
exist. If it must continue let
all have a hand and the word gp
