A Practical Suggestion.
It was his first Sunday school, and
he sat In the Infants' department
eagerly watching the superintendent
Illustrate the lesson on the board. The
superintendent drew tho path to heav
enone straight line and started the
figure of a man on It Gradually the
man became larger and larger, and
finally when he arrived at the gate of

'Tho Democracy of Death.
In the democracy of the dead all men
at last are equal. There is neither

threshold the philosopher ceases to be

Dives relinquishes his millions, Laza

as the richest, and the rich man Is as
poor as the pauper. Tho creditor loses
his usury, and tho debtor is acquitted
of his obligation. There the proud

In equity. The wrongs of time are re
dressed, injustice is expiated, the Irony
of fnto is refuted, the unequal distribu

so cruel and Inexplicable, ceases In the
realm of death. Tho strongest there
baa no supremacy, and the weakest
needs no defense. The mightiest cap

A Maine Whisky.
Sir Thomas Dewar told an amusing
story at tho opening of Dewnr nouse
concerning a liquid which he once
sampled In the prohibition state of
Maine, U. S. A. When ho asked what
it was made of he was told tho blender
took a gallon of wood alcohol, put a
v, Ineglnssf ul of glycerin In It to mellow
It, then ground down some plug tobac
co nnd strained It through a cheese
cloth to give It a flavor and united the
wholo with a gallon of water. It was
called "squirrel whisky" because
"those who drank It talked nutty and
climbed trees." London Globe.
The Locust Story Outclassed.
Tho king commanded the court story
Jeller to unfold a narrative without an

building filled with corn," began the
story teller. "An enormous swarm of
locusts swooped down on tills tremen

"Stopl" commanded the king. "That
tale is a bearded chestnut 1 waut
something new. But It must bu a sto

The story teller departed. Several
hours Inter he returned nnd was ad

"O most mighty monarch," he bo
gan, "I have found one who can rogiile
you with a story which Is devoid of
"Produce!" cried the king.
The story teller passed from the
throne room, but soon returuod Ho
was accompanied by a woman.
"Your highness, this lady will tell a
story which has no end," announced
tho story teller.
Then the woman told the king every
thing she was going to purchase when
her husband had his salary raised.
The king was Btlll listening. Har

Tho Missing Frog.
The pupils of n distinguished pro
fessor of zoology, a man well known
for his eccentricities, noted one day
two tidy parcels lying on their In
structor's desk as they passed out nt
tho noon hour. Ou their return to the
laboratory for tho afternoon lecture
they saw but one. This the professor
tonk carefully up In his hand as he
opimed his lecture. "In tlm study of
vertebruta we have taken the frog as
a typo. Let us now examine the gas

specimen." So saying, tho professor
untied the string of his noat parcel
and disclosed to view a ham sundwlch

my lunch." snld the learned man be

TOWN BOOM AGENTS.
Every Citizen May B&come a Lo
cal Publicity Bureau.
PROMOTE FACTORY SITES.
Merchants Particularly Concerned lr
Having Such Establishments Locate.
Somo Hints as to How a Prosperity
Campaign May Be Made.
The city publicity bureau Is becom
ing a Oxed institution in this country.
Many cities, particularly in the north
west, maintain regular bureaus for th
propagation of publicity concerning
their attractions and advantages.
Even Boston, the "hub of the uni
verse," fifth in population In tho Unit-1
cd States, is engaged in such a cam
paign for city booming.
It Is perhaps unreasonable to expect
a small town to maintain a paid pub
licity agent, yet there are some of 'the
smaller cities which seem to find it
profitable. The average town must be
boomed by volunteers. Every citizen'
may constitute himself n publicity
agent nnd proceed to make his town
better known to outsiders.
The big city bureaus take up such
matters as factory sites and opportuni
ties, local trade advantages and tbo
like. The small town resident can do
likewise with n reasonable promise ot
accomplishing something for tho good
of his community. In theso days off,
overcrowding In large cities, with)
high cost of living high rents for floor
space and other unfavorable conditions
many manufacturers nre on the look
out for nvallable country towns In
which" to locate their plants or' to es
tablish branch plants.
The advantages of a location in a.
smaller- town nre obvious. In nearly
every town of a few thousand people
there are many young persons unem
ployed who would welcome heartily a
chance to got a Job with some manu
facturing concern. Both boys and girls,
young men nnd young women, are
available In the average town for fac
tory work. In the absence of such op
portunities thoy are Inclined to leave
home and seek work In the cities,
where nt host the chances for success,
and happiness are but meager.
With ninny parents In the smaller
towns thero Is constantly present the
pathetic druad of parting from thelr
children, because the latter, approach
ing maturity, are nmbltlous to get lnto
the big world outside and earn more
than they can enrn nt home. With a
manufacturing concern located in your
town you oau keep your children at
home, whero tho conditions of living;
nre vastly superior to the city condi
tions. The town merchant Is particularly
concerned in this matter. A branch:
shoo factoiy, for Instance, not only
will give employment to the unem
ployed at home, enabling them to earn
money Por spending nt homo stores,
but It will bring new families to town.
A monthly payroll of several thou
sand dollnis means Just thnt inucb
more mouev lu local circulation. The
merchant gets the benefit of tho in
creased demand for all the necessaries
of life and for some of the luxuries.
Almost nuy town possesses a suita
ble site for some sort ofmannfactur-
Ing establishment In good agricul
tural communities a canning factory
works In every direction to benefit the
people. It supplies a home market for)
the farmer's and gardener's produce.
It gives employment to home people.
It brings more money for home circu
lation. If there is uo fund In sUthl for the
employment of an agent to push
things In this lino. tl loi-nl business
people rnljihl get tot'iucr und do ::iu h
towuid making the nUvait;i;.fs of t.te
town known to - muauf:u hirers In
search of locations outside tho bis
cities. One excellent plan iugn-stea
by an export In these matters is- tot
have a tasty booklet or circular print
ed at the local prlritery. netting fortl
the merits of the town aud Hurrotind
Ing couutry, giving population figures',
transportation udvauiages, prices off
available factory sites aud such other
Information us the occasion mny Indi
cate. This booklet should bo kept on
hand by the merchants and other busi
ness people In quantities siillicleut te
enable them to Inclose copies la everjr
letter written to outsiders.
Another plan that has worked wellA
In some towns is for tho business mem
to club together and buy some regular
advertising space In the home newspa
per, where Interesting Information con
cerning the town may be kept stand
ing. As a mntter of fact only the
type will he kept stnndtrjg. The Infor
mation thus expressed will travel
widely. It can be made to travel stUIf
more widely If the citizens will secure
extra copies and mall them where they
will do the most good.
A town In which every responsible?
citizen is n walking, talking, writing,
fighting publicity bureau and town
boomer Is not calculated to remain
very loug an unknown quantity. The
outside world will discover that that
town Is on the map and will not have
to stick a pin in the atlas at that point
to remember tho fact
Tho writer once knew a man in a
Missouri town who was regarded by
bis friends as n benevolent lunatic be
cause he went around talking up hl
own town as the best burg on the map
of the United States, no visited manyi
other towns and cities, always blow
ing the horn of his homo town. That
man no longer Is regarded ns n cranfc.
His talk has built up his town, and
Inst year the grateful citizens contrib
uted from the money he had enabled
them to make and bought htm an arj
