The Home Circle The Straight Path. True worth is in being, not seeming; In doing each day that goes by, Some little good—not in the dreaming Of greater things to do by and by. For whatever men say in blindness, And spite of the fancies of youth, There's nothing so kingly as kindness, And nothing so royal as truth. We get back our mete as we measure: We cannot do wrong and feel right; Nor can we give pain and give pleasure, For justice avenges each slight. The air for the wing of the sparrow, The bush for the robin and wren, But always the path that is narrow And straight for the children of men. —Alice Carey Don't let tho sunshine in na- ture become cloudy since you are growing older. in The etrength of a nation is the intelligent and well-ordered polished you may be, if your table manners are neglected they will [ surely betray you. Let each member of the household do all in his or her power to make home the brightest and happiest place on earth. The truest and most respected of al...

i For the Farmer Need of Early Plowing. A serious mistake will be made if a large amount of fall plowing is not done this year. The dis- asterous drouth through which we are passing has painfully called our attention to the need of better preparation of the soil and a more rational conserva- tion of winter moisture. Where deep breaking and progressive cultivation were in operation the effects are now apparent. Those who prepared properly were gen- erally rewarded with a crop, whereas the careless and indif- ferent paid the price of failure. Crops are not large in most sections this season and this should ineure rapid harvesting and early breaking for the next crop It will be especially de- sirable to turn the land early Loss on Wheat Crop. Colorado Springs. Aug. 18.— Farmers of the United States needlessly threw away 8,896,000 bushels of winter wheat this year, not to mention an enor- mous loss in other farm products simply because they failed to prepare against drouth by tak- ing s...

There waa a day, nut so lung ago, either, when a city park waa a luxury enjoyed only by the largest and most expensively governed cities. Today thousands of smaller cities have shown their progres siveness by making parks and playgrounds, some of which would be admired greatly by the people of the larger cities. The use of cement and concrete now general, has helped this movement along; the increasing knowledge of the ease with which a tree can be transplanted and grown has aided materially and a small city without a park is now something of a rarity. In nearly eveiy town and small city there is a space for a park. It may be the center of the town and a full block wide in each direction. It may be a triangle back of the public libary, so often unfortunately, set out on a b...

? For (he Farmer Disc Before Plowing. Few people realize the benefits that would accrue from discing land before plowing. In fact, not many farmers have given the subject any thought. As generally considered, it is only necessary to turn the top of the ground under without regard to its condition or the contact it will make with the bottom of the furrow. No matter how heavy the stubble, weeds or trash, if the plow covers it, the work is considered satisfactory and well done. The top of the ground may be hard, dry and lumpy, but it rarely occurs to the farmer that this condition has any effect upon the seed-bed if he can only get it turned under out of sight. Recently a great many exper- iments have been made and a scientific study of the whole sub- ject has emphasized the import- ance, if not the absolute neces- sity from an economic standpoint of properly preparing the ground before plowing. Consider for a moment a few of the fundament- al laws which govern the move- ment of the mo...

Just fifty years ago the great civil war, which arrayed north against south, brother against brother and father against son, was the all absorbing real life tragedy of the time. This ro- mance, written by a soldier who is the son of a great general, gives the son and the grandson of today an absorbing view of the perils faced by sire and grandsire of half a century ago A northern spy penetrating the southern lines with the shadow of the hangman s noose ever be- fore him ; a fair daughter of the south divided in her allegiance between love and duty; a mere boy with wits sharpened by the vicissitudes of war; a slip of a girl, ignorant, but brave, loyal and self sacrificing; a chivalrous soldier in gray who fought and loved in vain—these are the lead- ing act...
