A certain young woman's benevolent
disposition received a seven' shock on
a recent Sunday evening. She was at
Church and sat directly behind a well
dressed stranger, with a ravi ling hang
lug to his collar. Iteing one of those
generous-hearted, whole-souled girls
who grow up to be motherly old ladh s.
a Mend to everybody in town, she
thought how glad she would be If BORIC
kind-hearted girl would be as kind to
her father, were he to go to church
with a raveling hanging down his back,
so when the audience rose for the lirst
hymn she concluded to pick it oil'.
Carefully raising her hand, she gave
a little twitch, hut it was longer than
she supposed, and a foot or more n -pea
red, Setting ber teeth she gave
a pull and about a yard of that horrible
thread hung down hi back. This was
getting embarrassing, but determined,
she gave anothci yank and discovered
that she was unraveling his undershirt.
Her discomfiture was so painful that
Ohlforofonn would not have alleviated
her sufferings nor a pint of powder hid
den her blushes when the gentleman
turned with an Inquiring look to see
what was tickling bis neck.

Here is a choice bit of homely wis

"Nine-tenths of the unhappy mar
riages are the result of green human
calves being allowed to run at large in
the society pastures without any yoke
on them. They marry and have chil

they aru fathers of twins before they
are the proprietors of pairs of pants,
and the little girls they tnarrv are
old women before they are :!. Oc
casionally one of these gosling mar
riages turns out all right, but it is a
clear case of luck. If there was a law
against young galoots sparking and
marrying before they have cut all their
teeth, We suppose the dlsscs would
evade it in some way, but there ought
to be a sentiment against it.
It is time enough for these bantams
to think of (hiding a pullet when they
have raised money enough lo buy a
bundle of laths to build a hen house.
But they see a girl who looks cunning
and they are afraid there will no! be

Nelson Freed Dead.
For the second time in live weeks,
Death invaded the hoim of the family
of Edward Freed, at 5:30 o'clock Sun
day evening, just as the shades of even
ing, of thai beautiful Autumn day be
gan to close around us, the pure spiril
of Nelson Freed w inged its w ay to the
God who gave It. Sept. 17, bis sister,
Bailie, passed away with thai dreaded
disease, typhoid fever. Scarcely a week
had nassed until the cruel fangs of
fever fastened themselves upon two
brothers, Charles and Nelson, and lor
three weeks the deceased suffered, and
seemed to be hanging In a balance un
til Anally tholasl faint hoi f loving
friends had to yield to the will of Htm
who is too wise to err.
Nelson was truly a model young
man; he was loved and respected by all
who knew him, and nothing bu I pral
for his noble, kind and Christ ian deeds
is heard from bis friends and neigh
Dors, ne waa convertea six years ago
and united with the United Evangelic
al church, of which body he was a con
listen t member, he being superintend
ent of the Sunday school, at the time
of his death. He died as he had lived,
trusting ill God. Shortly before he
passed away, in a strong (dear voice he
sang two verses of that beautiful hymn
"Leaning on the Everlasting Arm,',
after which he offered a beautiful pray
er, then fell peacefully asleep. He is
survived by his parents, two brothers
and three sisters, who have the sym
pathy of the entire community. His
age was 10 years, 11 months and 11
days. The funeral took place Tuesday.
Services were conducted by his pastor,
Rev. A. 1). Gramly.

My full line of notions will be reduced
on opening days.
The business man who does not be
lieve in adverlising, in these days, Is so
far back that he does not belong to the
class of business men. The thing that
troubles the business world most is
what manner of advertising is lest
suited to the needs of each particular
ease I feel safe in saving Unit there
is no business of w hatever nature that
can uot be improved with newspaper
advertising. The newspapers and the
magaslnei form the backboue of all
kinds of publicity. There are also the
circulars, folders, booklets, catalogues,
street cars and posters. Statistics show
that there is expended by American
business nu n (000,000,000 every year
for advertising. This is divided among
about a m Million houses.
Unfortunately a great deal of money
is wasted in advertising or rather in at
tempting to advertise. Certain prin
ciples of advertising ure Immutable ami
as reliable and as steady us the fixed
stars. The manner of applying these
principles in every day Use, on the
other hand, arc as intricate and uncer
tain as a panic on Wall Street. Too
many men rush headlong Into a pro
position to advertise extensively with
out knowing whether they are on the
right track or not. The wrong mediums
might be selected, the space purchased
might uot be used properly, li is al
ways sale to go slow Mt llrst, select your
mediums carefully; do not try to cover
too much territory at the beginning
and di i at I nipl to say all you know
about what you have to sell, in the fust
Use plenty of space to say whal you
have to say as one w ay to waste money
Is to spend too little of ii for ud vet Us
ing space, Every business man should
spend considerable nine for planning
and writing his advertisements. II he
can not do that, he should empl.iy a
specialist to look after that pari of the
business for hlni. Too few business
men really understand the art of get
ting am. the value out of adverlising
space. Advertising, and doing ii right,
Is as much a pari of business as buying
and selling. Space in a new-paper or
a magazine Is a commodity the same
as dry g I- and il is ;i much easier
matter for a business man to buy a
space of thai character than it is to de
termine how to use it. His success will
depend upon the latter.
Statements made in ads, should be
truthful. Tin y should contain not only
the truth, but ail the truth thai a buyer
should know. Make your. ids talk I.IKE
you or your clerk talks to the custom
ers over the counter. The same argu
ment used in the store or office to con
vince one man of the merits of your
goods, IfeH'cetive, will, if used in your
ads, touch the hundreds or thousands
or hundreds of thousands who read
your ud. in the papers or magazines.
Be clear, concise and to the point,
study your ads carefully before you
Bend them out. If possible, lei gome
one else read them and criticse them
for you. Ail sentences should be short
ami clear. The important words and
lines should bo neatly displayed. Prices
and descriptions should be given so the
buyer will have a fair Idea of the article
you have to sell. Try with your ad. to
create a desire for your article. Make
(bead, -ell the article. That Is what
