HOME CIRCLE COLUMN.
A Column Dedicated to Tired
Mothers as They Join the Home
Circle at Eventide.
A mother's heart, like primroBes.opens
most beautifully in the evening of life.
Many children develop into gloomy
morbid, bitter men and women for lack
of a happy childhood.
If instead of a gem or even a flower,
we would cast the gift of a happy tboug ht
into the heait of a friend, that would be
giving as the angels give.
When you find a home where all have
learned the important lesson of helping
one another, there you will find the per
fection of true home happiness.
FROM WHEELBARROW TO PRESIDENT.
How often we hear a vounz man say,
"We haven't been given a chance in life
to make any thine of ourselves.''
We would point that young man to
William E. Corey, who last year w
elected president of the United Steel
Corporation at a salary almost equal
to that of the president of the United

Sixteen years ago Covey was pushing a
wheelbarrow in the back yards of one of
Carnegie's mills at Braddock. This was
his "pull." He walked a little faster
and put on bigger loads than the men
at bis elbow.aud he was soon made fore

was not afraid to give his employer two
dollars worth of work for one dollar, a
fear that has taken possession of too
many young men in this community.
When he became foreman it was no
ticed that the men under him did more
work than formerly. He did not swear
at his men. They never grumbled at
their boss. They respected him, and it
was a pleasure to work for him. Car
negie began promoting Corey, and Corey
worked haul. He had only a fair com.
mon school education. He studied at
night. He took up a course in a corres
poudent Bchool. He became an expert
chemist, lie was soon authority on ar
mour plate. He knew more about ar
mour plate than any one in the mills,
He was soou made superintendent of
that department. He increased the out
put. Thai's all. But remember, that
this was nil the result of wheeling more
iron ore than the man at his elbow in a
back yard at Braddock. Too many of
our young men see how small a load
they can wheel. To put in the hours
add draw their pay is the height of their
ambition and then because they do not
prosper like young Corey they imagine
they have not been given a fair chance
10 "Ie t
. A cheerful atmosphere is important
to happy home life. It is hard for
children to be good when they are ex
posed to an Incessant hail storm of fault
finding from their parents. It is very
difficult for a wife to maintain a calm
and charmingly sweet demeanor when
her husband is critical or sullen and
takes all her tender efforts with indiffer

evil possible out of a child's life. Ig
norance of this is the charm of child
hood and youth) and its joyfulness.
Show them the right side of all that
comes to their knowledge. Because evil
knowledge will come sooner or later is
no reason for hastening it. Do not blast
the bud for fear the blossom will be
marred, or mar the blossom for fear the
fruit will be worm eaten. Frosts cannot
do as much harm after the fruit has Bet
as while the buds and blossoms are
growing. Be, what you wisn your
children to be, and keep them uncon

When rolling years shall cease to

MOTHER AND HOME.
In the marriage vows the little band
of gold placed on the bride's ringer by
the groom is the pledge that the hus
band has endowed the wife with all his
worldly goods; that the has an equal
interest in them. Yet with many who
say, "With all my worldly goods I thee
endow," the words mean nothing, and
every dollar spent by the wife in person
. al adornments or conveniences about
tne house is grudgingly given, and we
dare say that if soaie wives of this com
munity spent as much for sweetmeats
nd bon bons and ice cream soda as
their husbands do for smote each year,
there would go up a howl yon could
hear for miles from the husbands with
extravagant wives; and if the wives and
daughters of this community spent as
much on chewing gum as the husbands
and brothers do for tobacco each year,
the bridge would be full of men jumping
into the river because their wives spent
o much money foolishly. Mow we be
lieve when a man asks a young woman
to become his wife, and the relationship
is consummated in marriage that the
wife has an equal share in the finances
of that home. Many wives slave and
work for a life time. Where yon find
one ektravagant, yon will find ten care
ful and economical.
The" road along which the man of

(hat Bhe had been under a Doctor's care
for four years tor dyspepsia, the pain
appeared to center under the lett shoul

she could neither eat nor Bleep. Bhe
had lost faith in her home Doctor, and
asked us to send her sample of Dr.
Gunn'a Improved Liver Pills, which had
been recommended to her. We sent
her two, pills, and in a few days Bhe sent
for a box. Now she writes that the pain
under her shoulder has left her entirely,
she enjoys her meals, and never sleeps
less than eight hours every night, and
this has all come about in two weeks,
and cost ber 50 cents, for two boxes of
pills. Says the doctor charged her $50,
and that she told him he bad better

An Immense Hdp Yard.
Krebs Bros., of Salem, Oregon, have
formed a corporation to be known as
the KrebB Hop Company, the capital
stock of whicn is SUoO.OOO. The incor
porators and stockholders are John
Krebs, Leonard Krebs, M. W. Krebs
and John A. Krebs. The purpose of the
incorporation is to buy land, plant, cul
tivate and raise hods, as well as buy and
The Krebs recently purchased a large
farm near Independence, Polk county
Oregon.on which they have set 400 acres
of hops, it being the portion of the farm
which lies in the Willamette river bot
tom and receives its fertilization by be'
ing annually overflowed by the river,
All who have examined this land pro
nounce it bent laad in Polk county and it
is doubtful if better hop land cau be
found in all Oregon. It is difficult to
imagine what a beautiful sight it is to
see such a large bop held all in one
body, pegged in rows eight feet a part
and a mile and a half long in
one stretch. It takeB an enormous
amount of labor to plant a yard of that
size, not to speak of the cost, which is
considerable. It required 272,000 pegs,
644.000 roots, two to the hill, 10,000
trellis poles to trellis yard, 280,000
pounds of wire, or seven carloads, 24
30-foot kilns to dry the crop, eight store
looms, each 50125 feet and 18 feet high
to hold the crop. A large warehouse
will be built on the river landing. .
In other respects this ranch will prob
ably be conducted on the style of Krebs
Bros.' 224 acre hop farm near Brooks,
Oregon. To amuse the pickers the com
pany proposes to erect a dance hall
40x150 feet, where an orchestra will play
daily from 8 p. m. until midnight, a
bakery with capacity of 3500 loaves
daily, a meatmaaket, general grocery
store, a restaurant with capacity . lor
1500 meals daily, amphitheatre where
shows and boxing contests will be con
ducted, a summer garden where soft
drinks will be dispensed. In short, it
will require about three-quarters of a
million feet of lumber to erect the neces
sary build In jt.
The proposed camp grounds and the
buildings will be lit by electricity.
To pick the erop 2000 pickers will be
required, and 34 passenger car will be
necessary to bring the pickers to lode,

This yard will be the largest single hop

in England or Germany to compare with

Seedless Apples at the Fair.
Several bushels of seedless apples from
Colorado are on exhibition at the World's
Fair. This improved seedless apple, like
the seedless orange, is the result of the
scientific work of horticulturists. The
apple tree is blossomed and the fruit is free
from worms and hardy enough to endure
the frost. The blosomless feature of the
new tree is one of its most striking
peculiarities and will make it a favorite
with truit growers, especially in com
climates. Already seedless apple nurseries
have been started in several states and
seedless apple buds are In great demand.

less apple, is experimenting with various

A Woman's Wealth.
GIVES TIG0E AND
STRENGTH TO DEBILITATED AND
RUN DOWN WOMEN.
It is maintained by many distinguished
writers that the greatness of a nation depends
much upon the physical condition of its
women. The general conditions which con
tribute to health and long life, are those which
do not imply a rapid and unequal exhaustion
of those powers by which life is maintained.
While we assert that the women of our land
stand peerless for beauty and the virtues that
make them lovable, we cannot hide the fact
that there are thousands in dmr midst who,
owing to overwork, worry, household cares,
and an unequal exhaustion of life power, have
become weak, nervous, sleepless, and debili
tated. We bring to the attention of all weary,
desnondent. hoDeless. and sickly women
earth's great rescuer and health builder,
Paine's Celery Compound. Thousands of
healthy women around us owe their present
vigor, activity, and robustness to Paine's
Celery Compound. Mrs. Stephen Smith, St.
Paul, Minn., tells how she was snatched from
the grave; she says:
" I had a bad attack of la grippe this spring
and was at death's door, and no one ever
expected me to recover. I was so weak that
as soon as they brought me out of one faint
I was in another. I could not take any
nourishment, and doctors' medicines did me
no good. A friend advised my husband to
get me a bottle of Paine's Celery Compound,
which he did, but had no faith in it. The
second day after taking the Compound, I
began to get real hungry and took an interest
in things. I had everything that money and
loving care could supply, and with that and
Paine's Celery Compound, I am now doing
my own work, while three months ago I was
almost in the grave. I know that I owe my
health and strength to Paine's Celery Com
pound, and shall always recommend it." f
