DEATH BRINGS REWARD
When the last big böut is over,
and it's time for me to die, and I
take a job at bunking coal or
harping in the sky, I know the
little things I did—to win the
world's contempt—will be for
goten by the world, of scorn I'll
be exempt. And folks may then
think back apace to little things
I did in love of some poor, half
starved dog, to some poor, tear
ful kid they may even drop 8
tear on my cold, death-blanched
brow, but how these self-same
people love to hammer me just
now They may look at my wast
ed hands clasped o'er a silent
breast and say those hands were
clean and white, arid those they
once caressed ne'er found a
bruise of their imprint nor knew
a lasting strain, nor felt a single
heartache^or regret, akn to pain
they may look at my sightless
eyes, closed' in death's kindly
sleep, they may recall those eyes
once knew the blur of eyes that
weep they may recall their col
or as around my bier they bow
but now these self-same people
love to hammer me just now!Oh,
when the bout is over arid the fi
nal prayers are said, and the sex
/ton cleans his ancient spade and
folks say: "He is dead"—I sup
pose they'll do the same old
things I've marked thruout the
years—fine chamois will be ru
ined on cute noses red with tears,
t. i—_ .. ...
and men may blink their eyes
and say: "Too bad he had to go
I always liked the fellow and I
tried to let him know my heart
was right behind him may a
gold crown grace his brow!"—
but how these selfsame people
love to hammer me just now!
LOSING AN ARM
Once upon a time, as the story
runs, a certain man had a wart'
on the tip of a finger, a wholly
unnecessary and unattractive
wart it was. The man. desired
riddence of the wart.
So he cut off his arm. After
which operation he never again
was troubled with that wart.
Of course the story isn't true
for foolish as humans are not a
one has been foolish enough to
sacrifice an arm to get rid of a
wart on his finger.
But when it somes to the mak
ing of laws humans do not at all
times exercise the same wise
judgment. For instance:
America is troubled with a tri
fling sore spot on the tipof a
finger of her free speech arm. It
doesn't amount to much. It can
be cured, and easily,
er treatment is given.
itself is as sound
and as necessary.
Yet the majority of American
senators and no few representa
tives now propose to cut off the
arm in a neffort to get rid of the
sore finger. In other words,
congress would deny the consti
tutional right of free speech to
a hundred million loyal Ameri
cans so that a few thousand rad
ical minds may be supressed.
It is much like burning the
farmer's barn to kill a mouse.

40—QUEENS OF THE BREED--40
On February 12, we are going to sell 40 head of high
class bred sows and gilts. They are as good a lot as
will go through a sale ring this winter. You can pay
more for them at other sales but you will not get
them any better. There are in the offering six tried
sows and 34 spring gilts, and they have mated to
three as good sires as you will find in any herd in
the state. Dakota's Chief Price is one of the great
