which are needed to round out life
ana make It or tno linest type,
"The man who is or seems to bo
entirely devoid of spiritual nature
needs to bo converted. He has got
ten like a lump of putty which has
become dried and hard. He has al
lowed something to go from him that
he needs in his make-up, just as the
putty has gotten Into a condition of
uselessness because there has dried
out of it something that it needs for
Its highest efficiency. Ask the psy
chologist what has happened to the
life of such a man, and he will tell
you. Tho explanation 1s something
like this: On the hill-side, after a
little channel has been engraved by
the action of the water, It Is there In
the channel that the water which Is
draining off that hill will flow. And
all the while tho channel is being
deepened, till It becomes the course
of a rivulet, then of a brook, then of
a river. Just so with the llttlo acts
and even thoughts of our childhood.
That is why It makes so much dif
ference what moral and spiritual ed
ucation we give to our children. It
would be very strange if thoughts
and acts failed to become habitual.
For whatever we think or do "wears
a tiny channel the first time in our
brain, the second time deepens and
widens the channel, until at last
there is a wide furrow In the tissue
of the brain. But the Important
point Is this, that whether we are
till shaping our characters or not,
we may do so. And the importance
or tins lies in the fact that if our
characters are not all that we should
like them to be, we still have a
chance to make them what they
should be. For how, when it is de
sirable to deflect the course of the
little stream on the mountainside,
may this be accomplished? By sim
ply digging another channel which
shall take the water from the origi
nal channel. And In just this way
can wo grown men change the
they are called in scientific lan
guage. In closing Rev. Whlttaker said:
"If In the town which wo love and
wish to serve with our best powers
there be not that finer spiritual at
mosphere of loyalty to Jesus Christ
and His lofty standards of thought
and conduct, let us' set to work to
put Into operation a new spirit.
When a few men are determined un-
on the accomplishment of such a pur
pose, it aoes not otten fail. It may
lane long, out at last that SDirit will

Last Year It Was a- New Railroad
Station This Year it Will bo a
Glass Cutting Shop.
Honesdale Is not the only place
in Wayne County that has reason
to feel joyous and hopeful. There
is Prompton, for instance. Last
year the D. & H. R. R. Company pre
sented that delightful little town
with a spic-ahd-span new station,
both for passenger and freight ac-
commodatian, and this year the
town, through some of her Influen
tial citizens, is doing a little some
thing on her own account.
The money has all been subscrib
ed for the new glass cutting shop,
and work on tho structure has been
commenced. The building will be
28x60 feet, and from ground to roof
will bo twenty-five feet. It is locat
ed on the foundation of the Moore
excelsior works. The boiler house
and the acid room will be on the
outside of tho main building.
As the charter has been granted
and the building of the structure
commenced, it will not be long now
ere the enterprise will be running
In full blast, and the residents of
Prompton will feel warranted In try
ing to land some other Industry that
will add to that town's prosperity and
At one time Prompton was a very
thriving little borough. A large
manufactory whose output was bed
steads was operated by George Hall
& Son. The town supported three
stores. The County Normal School
was located there, and It was tho
stopping point for three or four grav
ity railroad train crews. As history
repeats itself, the outlook for Promp
ton Is most cheerful and encourag
ing. Suffering Men & Women, neeitii ! Health, u

Braman is now in the West
again. He went sooner than he
calculated on going because he
sold out his stock of
before he had half satisfied the
demands of those who wanted
such superior animals.
Indeed, such a quick sale of
horses, and such a bulk of horse
business, was never done in
Wayne County before. It was
a whirl-wind sale, a record
Didn't Have
to sell those horses. The stock
was so excellent, just as pretty
as a picture printed above. In
The Horses
for themselves, and that is all
there was to it.
Now, you were possibly dis
appointed at not getting one of
the lot that went so fast. Don't
worry. Be patient. All you
have to do is to wait just a lit
'tie while ; and, remember,
for the horses that Braman
will speedily bring from Iowa
will be just as fine a lot as were
ever bred, and trained, and sold
under a Braman guarantee.
Watch this space for further
particulars. But in any and all
Waif For
Braman I
