Entered at the Postofflce. Beldintr. Mich., for transmission throueh the Mails as second class matter. Postal Checks. Tho rapid extension of the rural free-delivery service increases the demand that tho Government shall provide some easy, convenient, and safe method for tho transmission of small sums of money through the mails, and I urge upn Congress the importance of pissing some law which will insure to our p-joplo this vd vantage at an early a dato as pos sible. As the rural free-delivery service has been extendei the numb)r of letters carrying small amounts of currency has greatly increased. At present there is no convenient method provided in the rural dis tricts for making such remittances through tho mails except in cur rency or postage stamps, and such currency and stamp remittances are a constant temptation to those hand ling them. The good roads propaganda is making itself felt in Congress, and if the agitation is continued by the farm and other newspapers, an enter ing wedge in the road legislation, it is believed, can be secured compara tively soon. Last Congress the rownlow bill was introduced and ivvivl T,i''esp;"'vi-l an 1 fi'qu"nl ' !)V t V' ' . "'l " l'-'l I : tiiat half a 'dozen iul bills have beet, introduced this session. Like all such new legislation involving large appropriations Congress will put it off as long as possible; until the de mand becomes insistent and wide spread.

If courage Is gone all Is gone. Fly from pleasure that bites to-morrow. If you lose heart you weaken your head. A wise man can keep silent, a fool cannot. Put the best of yourself Into all you do. Prosperity in evil Is the greatest misfortune. No oflre can make a worthless man respectable. A minute may rend what an ago cannot mend. Hurry not only spoils work but spoils life also. A noble failure l3 better than a dis reputable success. A roan should have "the will to do, the soul to dare." Share the burden of others and you will lighten your own. Wore harm may cone of work 111 done than of work undone. Do not think what you would like to do but what you ought to do. J. D. Dunn, D. D., LL. D. "Cure in. ouii mm eve the lifp." Or.

A man only employs his passion when he can make no use of his rea son. No amateur play Is satisfactory un less all the feminine parts are hero ines. The average girl believes the proper Ume to marry is the first time she's asked. One troible with people who have excuses Is that they can't always think of them. Too many men waste valuable time talking about the things they are go Ing to do. A woman usually begins her llfo work when she marries a man to reform him. The uneven distribution of one con science and five senses explains many a moral lapse. Men of small minds are slow to see In any man more than they are cap able of seeing In tnemselves. The average man too often shows his reverence for religion by his dis inclination to put it to any practical use. The man who Informs you that life Isn't worth living Is the first to tele phone for a doctor if a spider bites him. Fatal kidney and bladder trouble alw h prevented br the u -of roley'sK'ney Cure.

Drinking In Germaby. The commission appointed b Kaiser Wilhtlm to look into the drinking habits of bis subjects re ports that the German people con sump alcoholic liquids to the value of 750,000,000 in the course of one year; that the portion of income pent by the Germans for drink, oi. he average, is one-eighth of all they am. The average income of a rrown-up German is said to be $100 per annum.

WhUky Filling Our Prisons. F. M. Wells, an ex-chaplain of the Uuited Statps army, writes as fol lows to Ram's Horn. There are 1,534 men and 40 women in the penitentiary here in Colum bus. O. Of thpse, 213 are in for life, while eight are in the death-cell awaiting execution. Whisky is tilling our prisons, de bauching many not yet in prison, and laying a heavy burden on both church and state. We have to care for many who would be able to care for themselves if whisky were re moved. Soaked tho Violatcrs. Charles Converse, Myron Wake man and Oscar P.
