A Vision of the Little Country Town,
lie sits there at the fireside, where the
mellow light is gleaming
O'er the columns of the little country
paper that he holds,
And something he has read there seems
to set his fancy dreaming,
While memory's panorama of forgotten
Its quaint and homely phrases all in-
cline him to reflection,
Some sweetness of enchantment as he
lays the paper down
Strips the bitter peel of sorrow from
the fruit of recollection,
He tastes the mellow sweetness of the
little country town.
He sees, at even, a cottage where the
lamplight dimly straying
Through the window thickly bowered
with the honeysuckle vine,
To his ears come strains of music,
there's a sound ot someone playing
On a little cottage organ and the notes
of Auld Lang Syne.
He hears the tea things clatter, sees a
woman's figure flitting
Here and there, belike some fairy, and
the shimmer of her gown,
And longing leads his fancy to the
place where he is sitting
Just across from her at tabie in the lit-
tle country town.
What spell lies on its columns'!1 There
rise lusty tones and laughing,
A rioting of young folks through the
open parlor door,
The place resounds with revelry and
bandinage and chatting,
Someone lias brought his fiddle from
the little country store.
The merry songs from lad and lass in
lusty tones are swelling,
The sparkling cider passes in the earth-
en jug and brown,
What silver - throated eloquence of
memory is telling
The story of the glory of^the little
Yet he sits here alone, where all the
dreamy shadows dancing,
And silent, save ior voices that his
memory may hear,
The eyes that o'er the columns of the
little paper glancing
Like violets dew-misted, in the passing
of a tear,
For some, as he, are missing from the
circle ouce unbroken,
And one he knows lies sleeping where
the autumn leaves are brown,
His hair is white, like silver, yet in
fancy he has spoken
With all those lads and lasses of the
little country town.
The misty eye of sorrow at tjie bush of
dreams is seeking
The rose of recollection with the frag-
rance of its morn,
And in the year of memory the voice
of Grier is speaking,
The hand that plucks the blossom
knows the sharpness of the thorn.
His dreams die with the embers at the
fireplace--ah, the pity!
The paper falls from listless hands and
idly flutters down.
How lonely, lonely, lonely is the sullen,
\\ hen t hi rt has come from stray-
ing n the little country town.
—J. VV. Foley.
A dure for Eczema,
My hatiy had eczema so bad that its
lie-id was a solid mass of scabs, and its
hair all came out. I tried many reme-
dies but none eemed to do any perma-
nent- :">od until I used DeWitt's Witch
Hazel Salve. Pile eczema is cured, the
scabs are goi.e and the little one's scalp
is perfectly clean and healthy, and its
hair is growing beautifully again. I
cannot give too much praise to De-
Witt's Witch Hazel Salve. Frahk Far-
mer, Bluff City, Ky In buying Witch
Hazel Salve look out for counterfeits.
DeWitt's is the original and the only
one containing pure Witch Hazel. The
name K ('. lie Witt & Co. is on every
box. Sold at the Garber Pharmacy.
"Eternity," said the country exhorter,
Who wanted to make things clear, "is
forever and forever and five or six ev-
erlastings on top of that. Why, broth-
ers and sisters, after millions and bil-
lions of centuries have rolled away in
eternity, it would still be a hundred
years to breakfast time."—Ex.
Eadium or Eomance?
When the scientific men hay accom-
plished all tliey are expecting to do
with radium it seems doubtful whether
this old world will be able to recognize
itself, says the Pittsburg Dispatch.
Some days ago a stir was heard over
Principal Oliver Lodge's speculation
that it might prove the old idea ot
transmuting lead into gold not to bean
absurd dream The world has hardly
grasped the significance of such a pos-
sibility before Prince Tarkhauor, of
Russia, presents a more bewildering
sketch of the possibilities of the won-
Prince Tarkhanor certainly ascribes
sufficient versatility to the recent dis-
covered ageat. He is quite certain
that it is a cure for cancer. He claims
that it will control the sex of children
bsfore birth, in which field Dr.Schenk's
pretentions have registered a failure.
He has demonstrated that it is a pre-
ventive of hydrophobia after inocula-
tion by the virus. Finally he outlines
for it a revolution*of modern warfare
by the power of directing heat rays
which will explode the enemy's powder
magazines and ammunition wagons
whenever they rashly venture into the
Plainly it a single metal has powei^
over such diverse fields as the cure of
cancer, the prevention of rabies, the
sex of children and the blowing up of
inimical explosives so that they will
hoist their own engineers it would
seem that its field is almost without
limits. When these things are actually
done we may expect the all-conquering
scientific man armed with his radium
tube to do anything he chooses except
to smash the trusts and make profes-
sional politicians honest. The two lat-
ter tilings must be recognized as be-
yond the power of anything short of

tion has an interesting reversion to a
product of fiction. II. G. Wells, who
has usurped Jules Verne's field with a
much finer literary genius, evolved
something very much like this in his
"War of Worlds." The irresistible .Mar-
tians in that tale had a heat ray which
directed against warships, buildings or
field batteries burned them or exploded
them into nothingness. It is an inter-
esting speculation whether Prof. Tarli-
hanor is rivaling Mr. Wells in the field
of imagination or whether science wiil

Don't Be a Failure.
A farmer was the owner of a bird
dog that was strictly onto his business
and never failed to "point" a bird if
there was one in the neighborhood. His
master was a crack shot and never
failed to bring down a bird when the
dog started one when they were out
hunting together. One day a friend of
the farmer was visiting with him and
asked if there was any objection to his
taking the dog on a hunt. The farmer
was glad to let his friend have the
pleasure, and the dog and visitor start-
ed out together. In a little while the
doc started a bird; the visitor shot, but
never touched a feather. In a little
while the dog started another bird,
which the visitor shot at and missed,as
he had the first. The dog looked dis-
gusted, but went on and in a little
while started the third bird, which the
visitor missed as he had the other two.
"That settles the business," said the
dog; "I have no more time to fool away
hunting birds for a man who couldn't
hit the side of a barn," And with that
the wise dog trotted off towards home,
leaving the hunter in the field.
Moral Even a dog hates to be as
sociated with a failure.—Mail and
An Early Riser,
A strong, healthy, active constitution
depends largely on the condition of the
liver. The famous little pills known as
DeWitt's Little Early Hisers not only
cleanse the system but they strengthen
the action of the liver and rebuild the
tissues supporting that organ. Little
Early Risers are easy to act, they never
gripe and yet they are absolutely cer-
tain to produce results that are satis-

first well proved that there was plenty
of gas l'or a large city. The well was
put down on an allotment about a mile

working iu the field listened as atten-

refined. Never was there a more fin-
ished orator. We are wont to praise
Demosthenes and Cicero and lament
their long departed greatness, but their
efforts are in no wise superior to those
of the departed senator. Ancient and
modern history may be searched in
vain for a greater PhiUipic than In-
galls' scathing excoriation in his reply

Negro Love for Mules,
Speaking of mules reminds us of the
d irkey's great love for the long-eared
brute. It is said that a true born dar-
key will uphold a mule's actions every
time. If anyone speaks a bad word for
good one. On the streets of our town
last summer the mule question came
uji for discussion, and during the talk
one old gentleman said whenever he
wanted to die he would buy <t team of
mules. One of those old plantation
darkies heard this and saiil, "Lawd,
man, youse miehty queer about that.
If I had a team of good mules I'd never
want to die."—Ex.
