While great fortunes have put
it in the power of man to acquire
land in great tracts, nature has
placed a limit on the ability of
even the most capable to manage
it properly if it exceed the di
mensions which reason and com
mon sense would dictate. It
might easily happen, for instance,
that one of our modern million
aires should purchase a tract as
large as one of our smaller states;
and yet the man does not live
Who could manage a farm the
size of the smallest county in the.
smallest state, in such a way as
to get even moderately good re
sults from the whole of it. By a
farm is, of course, meant a tract
of land suitable for general agri
cultural, and not a pasture range,
which is rightly held in much
larger areas. But be the land
tillable, pasture, or woodland,
the standard of conduct for 1 him
. who assumes its";" ownership and
management is precisely the
same. "Let the earth bring
forth grass, the herb yielding
seed and the tree yielding fruit;"

mission; this law is written large
in the evident purposes of nature
and the needs of the world, and
it lays upon the landowner an
obligation so sacred and so im

Gore, of Oklahoma, refused to
Vote for a high tariff on oil
though urged to do so by the oi
producers of his state. Explain
ing his refusal, he said;
"I confess there is a good deal
of human nature in me. I wish
that this cup might pass from
my lips. Many of the independ
ent producers in the state of Ok
lanoma are my personal ana po
liti-ial friends. They would ren
der me any possible service, and
I would reciprocate. I would
render them any possible service
that I could without violence to

Perhaps my attitude on this oo
casion is attributable rather to

fatal political mistake, I am not
unaware that I may , be ordering

According to a Hindoo legend
this is the proper origin of wo
man. Twashtri, the god Vulcan
of the Hindoo mythology, created
the world, but on his commenc
ing to create woman he discover
ed that for man he had exhaust
ed all his creative material, and
that not one solid element had
been left. This, of course, great-
y perplexed Twashtri and caused
him to fall into a profound medi
tation. When he arose from it
he proceeded as follows. He took:

The gentle gaze of the doe.

the ground in first-class condition
and then to plant all that is suit

600 acres of such . ground, the
task will be no small one, and
some little time and a large crew
of laborers will be required to
reach the desired results. How

NOT TOO GOOD
A Missouri editor gives his

"Whatever you do, brother,
don't get too good. There is a
piety thatis depressing, - and
which immediatly breeds suspi
cion and distrust. Most eyery

secret acts and thoughts, or even
those things people know about

"Some of us -get drunk, and
that's bad; some of us are adult

us lie like dogs, and that's worse;
some peddle vile talk, and that's
worse, and some of us love
money better than we do. truth,
honor and goodness, and that's
worse; some of us cheat, steal
and dodge our taxes, and that's
worser" still, - though among
the elect it is sometimes - consid
ered a virtue. .
"But the crowning sin of all
this is a hard, unmoving heart
and a soul without charity for
the frailties of others, which re
joices when others are crucified
and which attempts to hide its
secret joy with sniffling and
pious deprecation. Men , dislike
such people, and God despises
them. No, whatever you do,

going to be a big surprise party
