Weighing the Baby. "Oh" said the tall girl as she flung her arms rapturously around her churn and began a series of ap- preciative little bites on one coo' rosy cheek "I'm so glad you've come. I've got something lovely for us to do." Then the tall girl shook one fin- ger warningly to head off any en- thusiastic comment and added somewhat mysteriously and vague- ly: "It's asleep now. But that's just what we are going to do we are going to weigh it." j. Her chum's blue eyes opened wide. "We're going to weigh the baby?" she repeated breathlessly. "Yes indeed. All babies have to be weighed you know but we were so worried and busy yester- day that we didn't get around to it somehow and finally papa said I might do it to-day and here I've been making for you hours and hours." The rosy cheeked -girl looked pensive. "Aren't you afraid we'll drop it and break it?" she ventur- ed rather timidly. "I don't know much about weighing babies my- self." "Oh dear no. I'm going to tie it up tight in m...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. The man who wears himself out with work and worry hardly gets that good out of life that his Maker intended. A little restless energy is a good thing but too much of it kills the very purpose for which it is expended. The ambitious dispositions of some men make it difficult for them to curb their desires to do big things and with most people the idea of big things is confined to money- making and living in a style above that which his neighbors " can af- ford. There seems to be little sat- isfaction in these things after they are attained. Money is a good thing to have about in an emergen- cy but it does not always or even often bring happiness. I know a man who lias .aquired large wealth and ever' year makes enough to support him comfortably for his natural life. He lives in an elegantly built and handsomely fur- nished residence in one of our cities but spends a large part of his time in a one room hut on a ranch away from the cares and responsibilities of a busy ...

West Texas-Permanent and Valua ble Work. Last October a year ago I vis ited Spring Creek for the first time. They were without a Sun- day Behoof ax preaching; in fact they told me afterwards that they were not thinking about anything of the kind till J went among them and commenced talking up a Sun- da7 school meeting. The school was small at first but it kept growing. I put a library into the school and assisted them from time to time. The superintendent wrote me last week that they had a' glorious revival twenty conver- sions and a Baptist church organ- ized. He closed his letter by say- ing "By all means come and help us.

"First Capital of Texas. About thirty miles up the Brazos from its mouth two miles inland from what is known as Columbia now but then known as Mannan or Bell's Landing was located the first capital of Texas.

His Only Match. Senator Jno. P. Jones of Nevada is a firm believer in hick. He told me a little while :go that he ile served no credit after all for being a millionaire "I am one of the comparatively few who were born under n lucky star" he said. "Without luck as an aid i! would never have been heard of. That's the case of most successful men you will find whether they will admit it. or not. I have always found that luck was just ahead. I once wandered away from my party in the mountains and the intense cold threatened to finish me before I joined it again. I got under the friendly Side of a bowlder to escape the icy blasts that came roaring down the mountains and about the first thing I saw there? was one sol- itary match. I gathered some brushwood struck the match and it went out. A little disheartened I proceeded on my way and hadn't pone twenty paces before I saw an- other match. Butit was a wetone. I dried it on my hair and struck it. It sputtered burned flickered dancei winked...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. "DM i: .1 . . xjicuuuu uays are iruitiui in thoughts. With the candidate ana their warmest supporters thoughts are very much intensified. The greatest pity is that with mauy the single thought is to secure elec tioh regardless of the methods pur- sued. It is strange that office hold ing is almost a mania with some men. You perhaps . know men mho have quit good positions to become candidates for an office tHat paid less brought the holder into an unenviable contact with the world required harder work to ob- tain and stilliarder work to re- tain it. Office holding generally unfits "a man for anything else and mikes him a slave to the whims and ca- prices of a very fickle voting popu- lation. Once in office a man feels his dependence on the good will of the people and generally deter- mines to hold it at all hazards. His living depends on it and he is tempted to resort to somewhat questionable means to keep the good will of the dear constituency. His convictions are la...

High Ufa In Tucson. You go out. at 7:30 o'clock to dine in a little French restaurant located in what is knowh as church plaza. You hear the tinkle of the sanctuary bell from the little Cath- olic church at the opposite side of the square and you see the devout Mexicans flocking to evening pray- er. i ou nave just tune to ponder on the deeply religious character of the town when a sound very dif- ferent from the sanctuary bell falls upon jour pars.

RANDOM THOUGHTS. Every lover of good government must be alarmed at the methods now pursued in legislative matters. Our congress which has recently adjourned proved a bitter disap pointment not only to the masses of the people but especially to the party it wassupposed to represent. Men are as wise now as in the ear- ly days of our country they know what the country needs and what is expected of them yet they bold- ly set at defiance the known wish- es of the people they represent. This is not done for popularit' for every sensible man knows that to violate the pledges made to his people is to arouse strong political opposition. It is not done because it iB best for our government for it is generally admitted that the in- tuition of the masses of voters of a country is pretty generally correct. The only logical conclusion is that public demands are laid aside to gratify private desires in other words corruption rules. While not inclined to be pessi- mistic and while believing strong-...

He had to build a. larger store For wider grew his fame : Just like his trade for unto him The buying public came.
