The Brown Shoe Co., St. Louis, Mo., Gentlemen: Hy reception this afternoon in Pilot Point for Martin & Wilfong was a very big success. We visited three schools in the forenoon and announced our reception for 3:30 p. m., and invited everyone, so when the time came to pull off our stunt, we had everyone in Pilot Point and a large crowd of people from the surrounding country as well in front of us. I gave my audience about an hour's talk on Buster Brown Blue Ribbon Shoes and other Star 5 Star Specialties with the usual Good Success. The children were all glad to see us again. Many of them played hookey in order to be with I and Tige every moment while in Pilot Point. They all renewed their promise to wear no other kind of shoes but the Buster Brown Shoes 1 drilled them thoroughly in the line as I scattered the souvenirs among them, after which Tige performed some of his stunt...

The Home Circle Many of us miss the joys that might be ours by keeping ojt eyes fixed on those of other peo- ple. No one can enjoy his own opportunities for happiness while he is envious of another's. We lose a great deal of the joy of living by not cheerfully accept- ing the small pleasures that come to us every day. The man and woman who try to make their home the most interesting spjt on earth for each oiher, and for their friends and those who are near and dear to them, have but occasional use for the club. It is to them, like the theatre, a pleasant place to enter now and then but not a spot to dwell in. The world is full of women who can amuse the ordinary man. Can sing, dance or recite for him; can paint, write or dec- orate in a manner most pleasing, but the poor man often goes begging for a woman who can sew on buttons or mend his clothes; who can cook hia food with economy and flavor it to his taste. into the shadows and lend a helping hand. To be very pojr, and yet carry ...

American Beauty Rust Proof Corsets Are Warranted to Shape Fashionably, to Wear Wall, Not to Rust, Break or tear. No stronger statement can be made of any Corset. The fashionable figure demands a resilient garment, giving lythe, grace- ful lines—a smooth, soft foundation—an effect of shapeliness. The points that make American Beauty Corsets superior are: FABRICS—Light but woven strength to resist the hardest strain. BONING—Double—cannot break, twist or rust; boning that has a pliani resiliency which models the flesh into the corset shape without the consciousness of the wearer—boning reinforced with interlining, tipped to prevent punching through the fabric. Every bone is a tesfed bone, tested for its power to bend, to take as it were every figure posture and to spring back without twisting or bre iking, always retaining its resiliant pliancy. MAKING The making is scientific—American Beauty Corsets may be depended upon for long life—no one part is made at the expense of another— each...

The Home Circle Horace Mann once wrote a beautiful truth in the form of an advertisement. "Loaf, yester- day, somewhere between sun- rise and sunset, two golden hours; each set with sixty dia- mond minuted. No reward is offered, for they are gone fore- ever." There is no foolishness in the world so great as to be a hy- pocrite. He is hated of the world for seeming to be a Chris- tian; he is hated by God for not being one. He hates himself and he is even despised by Sa- tan for serving him and not acknowledging it. They are really the best followers and greatest dupes he has; they serve him better than any other, but receive no reward. The afternoons and evenings are given to society work. Of course this does not apply to all homes, but there is a general tendency to neglect the claims of the family fur outside pleasure. We have met some women, who when asked if they keep house, blushing reply, We do light housekeeping because we dislike boarding. Our company politeness is generally ...

Breeding Better Seed. Those who have given thought to the subject will agree with us that farmers in the Southwest are losing thousands of dollars every year by planting poor seed When we consider the fact that the yield of our standard crops are considerably lower than what the soil is capable of producing, and much less than progressive farmers are getting, argument should not be necessary to show the economic value of good seed. Some one familliar with the laws of nature has said "like produces like," Perhaps i t would be nearer correct to say that like has a tendency to pro iuce like, for all of us know that we sometimes fail to "reap as we have sown," that is, the grain harvested is not equal in quanti- ty to the seed planted. Nature is not concerned more with man than she is with the perpituity of the species, hence plants vary in obedience to the laws of na'- wral selection, It is man's priv- ilege, it is his duty, to exercise his inteligence in the improve- ment of plants.

WHY SHE BELIEVES IN FAIRIES BY IDA B. COLE. m Ky:- If Peter Pan should go to Fort Worth, Tex., and ask his usual question, "Do you believe in faries," one little girl would quickly answer in the affirmative, for the fairy did come to little Maggie of the patched calico dress, who wanted music lessons more than she wanted anything else in all the big world. She could feel the rhythm of song in her little finger tips. It throbbed in her soul. It fired her childish brain and her eyes had the far away look of one who longs for the unattainable. Other little girla studied music and played such beautiful melodies, why was she denied the one thing her whole soul craved? Little Maggie could not reason it out; she only knew that her widowed mother often looked worried, that her big brother and sister were often weary after the day's work, that the little calico dress had to be patched again and again, and that some- how music lessons were an utter impossibility for her. Did you ever long for...

The Home Circle Honest poverty should be res- [ pectecl and not scorned. It was j in the homes of the lowly that we ' oftentimes found Christ when up on the earth, and in our day it can be truly said that we meet Him there oftener than else- where. Why should hearts spend years on earth growing into one, knitting life into life, blending- soul into soul, for a union that is not to reach beyond the valley of shadows'? Husbands, you are the head of the home, why not be the head of the home for eter- nity? The life of the world is strenu- ous, and the door of the home should shut out the storms and stress but should nut shut out new and wholesome inspiring influences. It should stand wide in hoppitable welcome to friends. The home life that is narrow and selfish is dull and enervating. "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." This is a saying as old as the hills, but were it true our great men in our great cities would not be on trial and sent to prison pens for "boo- dle" and...
