WORKED FOR COVETED CAR
Boys Had Sense Enough to See Fa-
ther's Position, and the Reault
A farmer was considerably In debt;
his Interest charge was about all It
was safe to be. The boys were good,
hard-working, thoughtless, fun-loving
boys—Juat the natural sort. They
prayerfully besought their father to
buy a motor car. This he did not
think he could afford. The boys re-
sented his seeming stinginess. Then
the man had an inspiration, relates
the Breeders' Gazette
The oldest boy was set to keeping
an account of the farm operations
expense and Income. They credited
the place with all that they ought;
they charged to "real estate" ditches
and limestone spread; they inven-
toried at the beginning of the year.
Then with the balance sheet before
them they made an intellegent analy
sis of their position.
They had uot yet reached the point
where they could afTord the car—the
boys themselves decided that—but
they were coming out from under the
debt. They had proof that this ven-
ture was profitable and that they saw
whe.'e wise expenditure for fertilisation
or for shelter would add to gains.
Like good business partners they laid
their plans and went on with their
work, more interested than ever, since
now the farming was a game at which
they could skillfully play and hope
Then this same farmer told his boys
they should have the car as soon as
they asked for it. The sons, knowing
all about the conditions, replied that
they hoped to be ready for it In two

Had Lung Trouble
and Expected to Die
With the civilised world anxiously
seeking a specific for Lung Trouble, the
number of recoveries brought about
through the use of Eckman's Alterative,
a medicine for Throat and Lung Trou-
bles, is attracting universal attention.
For fifteen years Rckman's Alterative has
been used and the reports of recoveries
in many supposed hopeiesw cases indicate
tbat this medicine is doing a vast
amount of good. Head this:—
33 it St.. Keyser. W. Va.
"Gentlemen: I was taken sick In No
vember. 1908, with a very had cold and
dizzy spells. The doctor then pronouneed
my case as Malaria Fever. I grew stead-
ily worse. Had two consultations held
over me. and the verdict was that the
fever had affected my lungs and that my
case was hopeless: only gave me two
months to live. Mv physlelnn had tried
most nil kinds of treatment nnd none did
me any good, so he asked my husband if
lie objected to him trying a proprietary
medicine So I began on voiir Alterative.
I was in bed frohl November .TO. „n
tfl February 'J.\ 1009. and was thought
dying several times Today I am health
ler and stronger than ever."

Let Uncle Try for Another.
The little Hratenahl boy visited his
uncle, who lives away out in thecoun
try. Uncle is a devout man; a pillar
of the church and a breeder of fine
horses. And upon a certain pretty colt
did our little friend cast his eye with
admiration and covetousness.
'Uncle Samuel," he said, "will you
please give me that colt?"
"Why, no, Harold," answered the
uncle. "'I can't give you that colt.
Do you want a colt very badly?"
"I'd rather have a colt than any-
thing else in the world!"
"Well, if you want a colt that much
you ought t<^ pray for it. When I
want a thing very badly, I pray for it
and it comes to me."
"Honest, uncle? Well, I'll tell you
you give mn this colt, and then you
pray for another one."
HASN'T SLEPT FOR A YEAR
But Ho Works Every Day, Is the Story
Told by a Laborer of
Duquesne is the home of what is al-
leged to be another freak of nature's
working—a man who is said to have
been without sleep for more than a
year, and yet works every day, relates
the Pittsburgh Dispatch. This wonder,
"Mike" Youhouse, twenty-«lx years
old, says he has been in four hospitals,
two health resorts and under tho care
of many different physicians, all of
whom failed to discover the cause of
his ailment. Most of them attribute
it to excessive worry, which had af-
fected his stomach and In turn his
brain, according to Youhouse.
"Mike" says that he had always
been strong and healthy, working in a
Duquesne mill. He says that more
than a year ago he was given a drink
of liquor, which immediately sickened
him. This sickness recurs frequently.
He saye that he has not slept since
that time, although he has tried every-
thing from the hardest work to the
strongest medicine. He goes to bed,
but cannot sleep.

THE SHIRT WAIST GIRL.

Oh shirt waist girl in garments white.
An airy creature of delight;
With saucy glance and figure neat,
Aand then your dainty little leet.
A bird you are without the wing,
And quite too cute for anything;
For you appear indeed a dream
Of peaches In a sea of cream.
I'm yours to order, here or there,
Your humble servant for I swear,
I'm ever tempted to pursue.
And leave my happy home for you.
