DUROC JERSEY HOGS.

annual sale of Duroc Jersey swine
at Davenport, on the first Saturday
in December (Dec. 3.) He will
offer 5 males and 5 females, 2
months old, also 1 sow 1 year old.
These pigs are all good ones, head-

famous males, of Salem, Neb.
If you want something fine in the
line of thoroughbred hogs, here is
a singular opportunity to procure
some of the Duroc Jersey variety.

tt=tv HILOSOPHERS and philanthro-
py plstB not only Indorse the famil-
ii iar and beloved aphorism, "It is
more blessed to give than to receive,"
but go a et«p further and claim that tha
capacity to receive Is absolutely depend-
ent on a capacity to spend; that to main-
tain a receptive attitude towards ail the
good and enjoyable things of this world,
one must spend. The same truth is ex-
pressed again in the statement, "He that
loseth his life shall find it." We have
come to interpret this paradox as mean-
ing that true happiness is attained only
when the seeker gets as far from his
own personality aa possible and inter-
ests himself in the life of the world or
of the Individuals around him. In pro-
portion as we give spontaneously will
we receive fr«ely. The gift need not al-
ways be tangible and material; it may
be the more valuable because of its spir-
itual quality, but into whatever we be-
stow some part of ourselves should en-
ter. As Lowell puts it:
" 'Tis not what we give, but what we share,
For the gift without the giver Is bare."
Thanksgiving is the festival of the
family and for th&t reason is a sad anni-
versary to the exiles from home, or to
those who, lacking home ties, are alone
in the world. It offers an especial occa-
sion therefore for the bestowal of hap-
piness. There is a certain embarrass-
ment about inviting the stranger to a
Christmas feast because custom calls for
an exchange of gifts, hut no such obli-
gation rests upon the Thanksgiving
