From Lucile's I have always liked Malcolm Cox very much, and I never supposed he could be as unreasonable and domi- neering as he has proved himself re- cently. Monday evening of last week when we were coming home from the thea- ter he said he was tired of dilly-dally- ing. "Dilly-dallyiug," I repeated. "What do you mean?" "1 mean," he answered in a voice sterner than I had ever dreamed he could speak to me, "that you must either say yes or no—that I am through with this uncertainty, I want to know. Lucile, if you care for me enough to promise to marry me." "Do you call that pretty lovemak- lng?" I asked, laughing a little nerv- ously. "You know what I want, Lucile. I want you, and you have known it a long time. 1 have tried pretty love- making, and, no matter what I have said or done, you have always put me off with a laugh or some other means of keeping me on tenterhooks.

NUT GROWING IN THE SOUTH. Pecan culture In the southeastern states, particularly In Georgia and •astern Alabama, has passed the ex- perimental stage, and 1b now a well- •stabllshed and flourishing Industry. Not only are groves of several years' growth paying handsomely, but new trees are being set out by the hun- dreds throughout all that section ap- parently best adapted to the cultiva- tion of this delightful article of com- merce. While this is all well enough, of course, and to be encouraged. It Is strange that the south should never have been moved to exploit its own most tempting and daintily delicious of all nuts—the scalybark hickory nut. There is something in its line worthy and well qualified, tndeed, and yet seemingly destined to purely local ap- preciation only. Its shell Is as brittle and as paperish as the most highly cultivated pecan to be found anywhere, and its kernel is of a melting and pleasing toothsomeness, never to be understood unless eaten. It grows on the st...

Tomorrow we write it 1-91-0. That is, if some of us do not for- get The Knox County News talks or the bright crop prospects for 1910. The editor of the News must be a new-comer. The desire of President Taft to have a Sherman anti-trust law modified does not look like "my policies" have much of a show. It is estimated that Santa Claus spent teL million dollars in Texas this year. Evidently Santa cannot be classed as a tightwad. This December has been the coldest in years in Texas and the coal man has been in his glory. Gut the ice man knows his time is coming.

Castro to Zelaya: "I'd rather be out- vide looking in than inside looking out." Maybe the bread trust kneads the dough. A Philadelphia pastor is using girls as ushers. A clever scheme to get the men to church. That order to the ice man to begin lis daily calls again may now be countermanded. "Noted Painting in Suit" says a headline. We have seen a lot of paint- ings that weren't. The natural presumption is that the man who married his landlady is ex- ceptionally fond of prunes.

increased Price of Elk Teeth. "During the last five years the value k.of elk teeth has more than trebled," «aid a western traveler at the Fred- eric, according to the St. Paul Dis- patch. "In 190( you could get any num- ber of fine specimens in Idaho, Mon- tana, Washington and bordering states lor $2.50 apiece. Now you will pay from $7.50 to $19, and they are hard to get for even that. The Apache, 8toux, Comanche and Chippewa Indi- ans used to have dozens of them in their possession and traded them for trinkets. But the redskin got wise to their value, and you can buy them from a regular dealer cheaper now than from the Indian. The passing of the elk and the great demand made by the members of the Elk lodge for leeth for emblems have boosted the price." The traveler recited an Incident of nn Oklalioman who bought a robe cov- ered with elk teeth from a Wichita Indian for $100. He cut off the teeth «nd cleaned up $2,200 on the deal.
