and his family. This conclusion
reached hy agricultural department
experts, probably Will bo one ot the

Coolidge's proposed agricultural re
lief commission here.
Other conclusions arrived at by the
departmental experts, who recently
completed a series of studies of farm
income, also are expected to serve us
a basis of data for the committee
which the president, in his acceptance
speech, said would be appointed for
the purpose of helping agriculture to

As u means of gauging how the agri
cultural depression has uffected furm
standards of living in the four years
since 1919-20, the department points
out that in tins period wholesale
prices of all commodities declined 25

IN THE hearts of the humble, the
sun Is always shining. If you will
pause a moment to look into the faces
of such mortals, you will catch a
glimpse of celestial fire whose Intensity

With humility, these souls have pa
tience and faith. They often puss us
by unheeded, for they are not given
to show or vaunting.
Their eyes are mild, their lips ars
set In u smile.
They go upon their way as softly
as do the stars of night, mindful of
their course and keeping steadfastly
upon it, in all sorts of weather.
Only rarely do we worldlings know
such souls when we meet them, yet
we are conscious of their magnetic

their faces soothes and encourages us.

This feeling of exaltation, when once
experienced, is never forgotten. It
clings to us through all the seasons
and years of our life, cheering us In
sorrow, strengthening us when we are
weak, and easing our burdens when we
feel that we cannot bear them a day
It forms a pleasing background to
our existence, a sort of refuge where
we may go and find rest when we
are unnerved, exhausted and discour

Pinching the ear Is a good simulation
of biting the tongue und reacts upon
the backbiter in the desired manner.
It is, moreover an especially appropri
ate act of simulation In such cases
because of the connection between
tingling ears and "people talking
about you" a superstition which has
already been dealt with in this series.
These superstitions are widespread as
are all the superstitions connected with
sympathetic magic. It is worthy of
note that while the doctrine of sym
pathetic magic was one of the
earliest results of the efforts of prim

tween cause and effect so a belief In
that same magic Is the most universal
of superstitions today.

fF COURSE, every married man
knows that there are no infallible
rules for ruling a woman.
But every bachelor thinks he knows
a few, and never hesitates to whisper
them confidently Into the poor Inno
cent bridegroom's ear.
Here they are as far as I have
been able to guther them :
1. Start right. Guard your Inde
pendence with your life! Never humor
a wife by explaining why you are go
ing out or when you are coming back.
After she has speut a few hours try
ing to keep the dinner hot. and Dlctur-
lng you mangled by a taxlcab, think
what a thrill It will give her to see you
come in well and cheerful, Instead of
on a stretcher. t
2. Don't flatter her. When you are
tempted to compliment her on her
looks or her cooking, control yourself.
Be strong. A little flattery may go to
her head, and make her so dizzy that
she'll wonder why she wasted herself
on you.
3. Assert yourselff from the start.
Now, is your appointed hour. Every
woman loves a "master." Show her
that she Is, after all, only your Rib
and that you are IT.
4. When your wife talks, never lis
ten. She will probably not say any
thing worth hearing. And besides, it
is much more Important that you
should finish reading the sporting
sheet, than that you should try to be
companionable with one so mentally
5. Remember thst she is an Ignorant,
unsophisticated little thing, and that
jm must keep tabs on her and re
model her. Never hesitate to criticize
her clothes, to laugh at her ideas, and
to disapprove of her friends. Thl will
make her love you like an "uplifter."
6. Don't be too devoted to her in
public. Let her catch you looking ad
miringly at OTHER women, now and
then. She will soon learn to appreci
ate your good taste and broad-mindedness
7. Always keep an eye on the week
ly bills, and make her account to you
for the money you dole out to her.
Every woman needs a guardian and
loves to f.fcl like an object of charity,
und no woman knows the real value
of money, even when she has had to
earn It.
8. Never forget that marriage is s
monarchy- not a democracy and that
there can be only one throne, one
seeptsr. and one set of opinions in the
house. Grab tn. first I
Thess are a bschslor's rules for rul
ing s wonisn. Any bridegroom whs
will follow them, can make a com
plets wreck of marriage, without coin
