CANST THOU FORGET? Canst thou forgot the days of love's awaking, The fair, Bweot days, when life was bo complete ; When we forgot that hearts are ever breaking, And sorrow something which we all must meet? Canst thou forget the touch of clinging fingers, The purple 6ky, the sunlight on the lake? Is there no word which in the mem ry lingers A message treasured for the past's dear sake? Canst thou forget the life we planned to gether, The scent of flow'rs, the story of the trees, The far off hills, with mists as blue as heather, The weird, strange voices 'mid the summer breeze? Const thou forget the castle walls we builded, The pictured scenes of journeyings afar, The dreams which seemed as by an angel g;ldcd, The love we trusted as a guiding star? Canst thou forget, when sad of heart and weary, Oppressed and spent with toil and trials sore. And troubled, long amid the years so dreary, For one blest hour of days that are no more? Canst thou forget, O, love of mine for ever, Tho' time ...

WATCH YOUR WORDS. Keep watch on your words, my darlings, For words are wonderful things ; They are sweet, like bees' fresh honeyLike bees, they have terrible stings. They can bless, like the warm, glad sunshine, And brighten a lonely life; They can cut, in the bitter contest, Like an open, two-edged knife. Let them pass through the lips unchallenged, If their errand is true and kind IC they come to support the weary, To comfort and help the blind ; If a bitter, revengeful spirit Prompt the words, let them be unsaid; They may flash through a brain like lightning Or fall on a heart like lead. Keep them back, if they're cold or cruel, Under bar and lock and seal; The wounds they make, my darlings, Are always slow to heal. May peace guard your lives, and ever From the time of your early youth, May the words that you daily utter Be the words of beautiful truth. Waverley Magazine.

EXPERIENCEOFMISS MERKLEY The Was Told That an Operation Wu Inevitable. How She Escaped It. When a physician tells a woman suffering with serious feminine trouble that an operation is necessary, the very thought of the knife and the operating table strikes terror to her heart, and our hospitals are full of women coming tor just such operations. There are cases where an operation Is the only resource, but when one considers the great number of cases of menacing femfile troubles cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound after physicians have advised operations, no woman should submit to one without first trying the Vegetable Compound anjwriting Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., for advice, which is -free. Miss Margret Merkley, of 275 Third Street, Milwaukee, Wis., writes: Dear Mrs. Pinkham: " Loss of strengft, extreme nervousness, shooi-.' a pains through the pelvic organs, bearing down pains and cramps compelled me to seek niedicnl.adviee.

Bell Controls in Ogle and Lee County. Gradually the Central Union (Bell) line is absorbing1 tlie farm business throughout this section of the state. In Oyle count-, formerly owned bv an independent company so far as farm business was concerned, several new companies have been organized and licensed by the Central Union company. The. Polo Mutual has signed for a long term of years with the Central Union and is absorbing practically all the business around Polo. The Oregon Mutual has likewise signed with the Central Union and is putting instruments in among the farmers by the wholesale.
