Ob, pause beside the weary road
and bear the angels sing. The glad
old soDg of peace is the lame today
as it was centuries ago, the day on
which it was sung means as much
to the world now, as it did then,
and once more we welcome it with
ita coed will and cheer. Santa
Claus is busy and it is time for old
and young and rich and poor to
throw aside all care, forget all atrife
and live anew, to enjoy the giving
and receiving, which it a part of
the Christmas joy.
It is the children's day, we older
folk should live for them. In this
land of beautiful firs, a tree should
ornament each and every home, it
means so much to the little folks,
it will be among their sweetest
memories when childhood days are
past. The little candle lights which
now bring forth shouts of glee will
one day brightfcu some dark path
way in the older life.
We hope old St. Nick will not
forget one single stocking, especi
ally those of the poor. Have we all
helped him to remember by substan
tial suggestions?

coin, preparatory to a big jump, is the

room in a rather out of the way place)
to the finest grocery store room in town

finest crockery and glassware, besides
Havlland and Austria ware of the

space of 3000 feet, and shelf room of
620 feet for groceries alone, besides
many hundreds of feet of shclvtug for
their dishes, etc., makes It possible fur
them to make a great showing of the
great stock that they buy. They buy
in large quantities and sell close.

water, etc. in order that customers
from the country may eat their
lunches, rest, write their letters and

have undertaken and made a store
that the whole town Is glad to speak
ot in glowing terms.
A Prix Winner.
The Cottage Grove creamery,
which has only been established
here for some four months, commen
cing to make butter in September,
has proved itself to be in line for
tht prize, not alone on butter, but
for general success, which is largely
due to the man who owns and oper
ates it, Mr. F. G. Stiver, who has
Made of his business a close study.
He was a student at the Minnesota
Agricultural college for two years
where he took a diploma and at
Rutland, Dakota, where he opera
ted a creamery for some time, he
won the championship of the state
for the finest butter and creamery
products. Duriag the three months
which the creamery has run, Mr.
Stiller has paid the farmers 3i cents
per pound for butter fat, making a
total of $1275.34, which is a wel
come addition to the earnings of the
fanners. In September I30& pounds
of butter was made, in October 13i 1
pounds and in November 149s
pounds, and by spring he expects
to tnrn out five or six times as
much batter per month and to add
to the creamery a cheese and ice
cream factory.

block of ground. Mr. Lurch has

the council and as an official in the
Commercial club. He is interested
in many of the interests of this sec
tion, and is fixed to take advantage
of all the prosperity to come.
Mr. Lurch conducts a general
merchandise store, and while his
buiiding is not at all pretentious,
yet after one has gone through it
and asked for most anything on
earth, or any place else, and gotten
it, without even going into the long
line of warehouses behind tne store,
you begin to think there are at
least a few things in the store.

a recent communication, extends a
timely warning: "Mexico otiers a
promising field for American capi
tal aud energy, especially uow that
a fixed value has been lveu to the
currency of the coiititiy. With the
great fluctuations iu exchange
which prevailed bttcre the adopt

But it iH still necessary, in spite of
the publicity occasioned ly recent
exposures ol fraudulent American
companies operating iu Mexico, to
warn the people of the Fnited
States against Mexican investments,
especially in mining and agricul

investigation. We know at home
at home that since tho Spaniards
began, some four hundred years ago
to exploit the miueial deposits of
Mexico, tuousanus fi minions or
dollars worth of precious metals
have been mined; that for example,
nearly one-third of the silver now
existing iu the world came from the
mines of Mexico, aue that today
many of these mines are heavy pro
ducers of tbis aud and of other pre
cious metals. Profiting by these
facts, as well as by tne credulity of
the public and by a degree of inao
cessibility whicu increases tho
chances for immunity from investi
