clares who may be voter* and who

A warning to borrowers who do not
pay up is Inherent in the communica-
tion of a New York man who says thai
about four years ago he lent 60 cents
to- a friend who has steadily refused to
jay It. "Since then," he writes, "hp
has lost his Job and is compelled t*
ske out a miserable existence by writ-
es for tbe Sunday papers. His mother
oas to take in washing, his sister had
to take a Job in a telephone exchange.
HI# father failed in business and
ikinned all his creditors, and his
irother went crazy and imagines he's
the ocean at Coney island."
American Tobacco Consumption.
It Inquires nearly 600,000,000
pounds of tobacco to meet the con-
sumption of a single year ia the
United States. If this huge con-
sumption were equally distributed
ampjig the entire popularloi
person wouf8 a
half pounds of the product annually.
Eliminating those who are under 15,
constituting a third of the population,
the per capita consumption would be
about sixteen pounds. No census re-
port has undertaken to exhibit what
is the per capita consumption among
the actual users of tobacco.

Agent to repretent me no-

Make out a list of what you
want and come to Nowata and

the °nly Way to do an honest

will misrepresent many things

Marden Ordered from the Bill.
George A. Marden of Lowell, once
entered a restaurant at the North end
iu Boston for a lunch while waiting
for a train. After a little deliberation
he asked the waiter for "a plate of
fly specks." The waiter reported the
uncomplimentary request to the pro-
prietor, whereupon the latter ap-
proached Marden and informed him
that they did not "serve fly specks."
'Then," said Marden, "why don't yon
take them off the bill of fare?"—Bos-
The Best Guide to Reading.
Of all the gifts an older brother or
sister can confer upon a younger child,
tone can compare with the taste for
gcod reading. It Is an easy matter for
the elder to bring^the right book to
the little reader at the right time,
fnd no lasting benefit can be given
with so little effort. See that you are
eMe to act as a wise guide when the
little brother's or sister's hand is put
so confidingly in yours.—Prom Books

and threw her off and broke the wheel.
