mav be judged by the condition of
his team and harness. Instead of
using wire, nails and rivets to mend
his harness, he takes them to the
shop and has them put in proper re-
pair as needed instead of allowing
them to continue to rip and tear
day after <1 ay until they can not l>e
used. We have found that it costs
less ir. the end to keep them in good
condition besides being more satis-
factory to the user. Our prices on repair work are moderate,
For $1.00 we will give your harness a thorough oiling which
will make them last much longer and look better. Bring in

An Optical Delusion.
Take a baseball hat stand it ver
tically about four feet in front of
your face, then place the ball a-
bnut as far away as from the home
plate to the second base Close
one eye and move into a position
where the bat will hide the ball
completely from the one eye that
is open, then without moving
open both eyes and look Rleadily
at the ball, and you fans will see
clearly why the ball slips through
so often. This experiment is
sometimes more distinct with one
eye than with the other which
will indicate that one eye is strong-
er than the other. Try it and
see if you can look through a bat.
Swat The Flies
An old resident tells us that
not so very long ago- -less than
forty years—we were taught not
to kill flies. Our parents, the
schools, our school books, the
news papers etc took great pains to
teach us that flies were very bene-
ficial insects acting as scavengers,
eating up putrid and decaying
matter, which, if allowed to re-
main, would cause untold diseas-
es, such as malaria, typhoid fever,
cholera, etc, until we actually be-
lieved it a sin to kill a fly. We
were told that these little vexa-
tious insects were, in reality, our
best friends and we were cited to
the above “scientific’’ statements
as a striking proof of the fact
that God has wisely created all
things for some good purpose.
But science has changed, the
old theories are exploded, tile Hv
is found to be a bearer and distrib-
uter of disease germs of many
varieties, and whether he ever
does a particle of good to balance
these evils is denied on good au-
thority. If he does any good, we
fail to see it.
Don’t pay any attention to old
exploded theories, he progressive.

A Few Comments on
Our next serial
"Distinguished for a tenderness of senti-
ment that warms the heart, and a kind of
homely humor of situation and phrase
that keeps one smiling in every chapter."
—Vogue, New York.
"Some of the earlier parts of the story
are exquisitely pathetic, but as the plot
develops and more sunshine comes to the
lives of Angelina and Abraham, there is a
quaint humor. The plot it ingeniously
worked out and there is a happy ending.
—Democrat and Chronicle, Rochester,
"Every line of the narrative is replete with
feeling and humor, a truly delightful com-
panion."— Public Ledger, Philadelphia.
"Blended homely pathos and sentiment
with simple humor, a combination which
discreetly handled is an almost infallible
recipe for popularity. The writer has dis-
played all dud discretion and is reaping her
just reward.”- Transcript, Boston, Mass.
“It is altogether one of the most original
and attractive stories it has.been our good
fortune to read in a long time.”— Alns*
lees, New York,
"The narrative is that of life at the home,
and of the happiness brought by unex-
pected affluence. A little gem, and
deserves wide reading." PtatnJealer
