By Old Man SmliK
When old man Smith was iu knee
breeches he used to watch the mower
with scythe in hand cutting his
swath. What a deft swing it was
that Drought down the tall grass in
windrows by his side. Aod always
with a stoning cot. No rlrlit md.
stroke would answer bis purpose.
And there are more things than cut
ting grass in which it is wise to give
the stoping cut. We are meeting
with all sorts of men, must have busi
ness dealings with them and more or
lens must admit them into our so
ciety. Sometimes we find it a tatk
to accommodate ourselves to their
idiosyncrasies, bear with their rude
ness or excuse their follies. And we
accomplish nothing by meeting them
at right angles. In our address we
need to study the art of being agree
able under provocation. Sometimes
we may have to administer rebuke
hot we should remember to give the
stoping cut. Washington's birthday
being so near, it Is appropriate to re
member the sage advioe he gave to
one of his officers who complained of
the insabordlnacy of his men.
"When you have charge of men," said
Washington, "it Is just like having to
place a lot of crooked sticks. Yon
cannot make them as you would wish
so you must make the best of them as
they are." Some men like to boast of
their prowess in saying just what
they think. It is a merit with them
to offend. Tbey are plainspoken.
Bat it is at least a doubtful virtue to
use offensive language even in the
cause of truth. No good cause should
be injured by injudicious handling.
No man should be unnecessarily hurt
in speaking the truth. Always give
the stoping out.
A lady was admiring the fine large
roosters at the poultry show. She said
she hated to put so much money into
a fowl for it might die and then all
ber money was gone. Whioh re
minded the old man of the little girl
who was weeping bitterly. She said
when she grew np she might get
married and she might bare baby
and the baby migbt die.
One of tbe speakers at the horticul
tural meeting spoke of the ravages of
the pear blight. He said it thrived
on culture. The old man looked
down his nose and'said don't onltivate
your pear trees and you won't have so
much blight. Don't plant so many
trees and 50U will have less, plant
none at all and yon have killed the
blight forever.
Why are twioe ten like twice eleven?
Because twice eleven are twenty-two,
and twioe ten are twenty too.
Tbe northwest German tribes were
known to jthe Romana as the free

Like tbe Indians they boasted of their
freedom while each carried, bis
