Is a trite saying and a very old one, but is just as "pat" today as when it was first uttered. There is no line of business
in which it is more important than in the business of farming. The successful farmer of today must plan weeks and months
ahead and we want to suggest that right now is none too early to be figuring on what you are going to require In the way of
AGRICULTURAL IHPLEMENTS for the year 1906. We are already preparing to supply our rapidly growing trade, and we
want to say to you that we are going to have a fuller, finer, more complete, more up-to-date stock of FARM IMPLEMENTS
and MACHINERY than we have ever show. It will include a complete assortment of the JOHN DEERE LINE, together with
some óf the choicer things from B. F. AVERY & 50N5 goods, selected with special reference to the demands of this market.
We are going to show you such quality of goods at such satisfactory prices, that when you see them you will not even think
of looking elsewhere for what you want. Remember we sell the LEADER and SAMPSON WINDMILLS and carry a full line
of CASING, PIPE, PIPE FITTINGS and CYLINDERS. We want the trade of every farmer in this community. We want
your trade and we are going to get it, if good goods, right prices and a "square deal" will bring it. When you want any-
thing in the HARDWARE LINE come to see us.
"No life can be pure in its purpose and
strong in its strife,
And all life not be purer and stronger
"Once to every man and nation comes the
moment to decide,
In the strife of Truth with Falsehood, for
the good or evil side."
Not far from a busy town in one of our
northern states a few years ago, was a beau-
tiful country home.
The home, a two-storied structure, stood
among gigantic trees of oak and elm with a
well-kept lawn stretching downward to the
public highway. Early in the springtime
when the sunbeams fluttered down from the
sky, dancing in their glee, and the south-
wind whispered to the buds to awake, did
the birds come to make their homes in these
trees and Carol their sweetest songs all
In this home were two children—a girl
and a boy. Each of these children had
flaxen hair, blue eyes, and a sweet and sun-
shiny disposition. The little girl, though
three years older than her brother, was his
constant companion all the day through.
They might have been seen playing with
their dolls, riding stick horses, or swinging
in the great swing that was made from one
of the long extending branches of the large
elm that stood near the corner of the back
porch. They often ran on errands for papa
and mama,* and grew and did as children
How often these fond parents would talk
and plan together for these children—talk of
what they should be when they reached
manhood and womanhood.
Ere long they were oíd enough to attend
the country school that was not far distant.
The sister would take thejr dinner basket in
one hand, and with the other, lead the little
brother to school. These were happy days,
and the paths of these children led on
together. Three years soon passed away,
and these children were now twelve and
One morning after the parents had talked
and planed fer sometime, it was told Mary
that she was to have a new piano, and that
a music teacher was coming into the home
to give her music lessons. How Mary's
face brightened, and how her eyes danced
with joy. Little John hearing it all, was
pleased, too, and now waited to know what
papa and mama were going to do for him.
In answer to his boyish question if he were
going to take music too, he was told that
boys didn't need music and such things ds
girls do. *
Time went on. How often was Mary
praised for the progress she was making
in both her school work and music. John
would often sit by and hear his mother tell
some lady friend how well Mary was doing;
then he would wonder why his mother didn't
say someting nice about him; for wasn't he
' doing well in school too?
It happened, too, that Mary's room was
the large one upstairs with so many windows
and such a nice, high ceiling. The carpet
on the floor wáfe so bright and there were
such beautiful tints in the paper that covered
the walls. John's room was near the rear
of the building, and while it was cosy and
comfortable, it did not have the attractive
appearance of his sister's far to the front.
In a short time these children were too
far advanced to attend the country school.
and now they were to attend the school in
town. As it was only a little more than a
mile from home, the parents dicided that
John could walk • to school from home each
day, bjit Mary must board in town.
Now, that Mary was getting along so well
with her music, her mother decided that she
must take art and elocution, too, in connec-
tion wite her school studies. In this Mary
did equally as wéll as in her music.
Each day John would return home in the
eAening with his books in his arms, and
carry them directly to his room. As soon
as he could put them on his little study table,
he would go down stairs to help do up the
evening chores. His mother always met
him at the foot of the stairs, and her first
question was, "How is your ¿ijter today?"
Not long and John was a boy fifteen years
of age. Always trusty and faithful at home
and everywhere. He had attended his
sister's parties, helped entertain her com-
pany in the home, but had never had a party
of his own nor had his company entertáined
as his sister's had been.
Ever since he could remember, he had
heard her prrised and petted by both father
and mother, but nothing of the kind hat}
been for him. John missed all this, and he
felt it. He began to go out with other boys
at night in quest of pleasure. How soon
the home began to lose its attractions for
him. Not long, and he began to lose inter-
est in his school. His instructor went to his
parents with, hesitating speech, and told
them his fears about their boy. Father and
mother are troubled and now lie awake at
night waiting to catch the slightest foot fall
in the hall telling them that John had re-
Soon it was rumored that John who had
been such a trusty bay was getting a little
wild and not long, too, until the premature
gray hairs were seen on the mother's brow.
Shall I end my story here?
No, the curtain does not drop until Mary
is an accomplished young lady of twenty-
three, while our once happy little boy now
at the age of twenty is ruined and wrecked
for life. •
Parents, this is a true story. I have told
it as a plea for the boys in our homes. Let
us see to it that they share equally with their
Mothers, let your boys have the best.
Entertain their friends for them, show your
son that you are interested in whatever he
takes an interest, and do not fail to give him
praise and notice, it
If the boy finds these attractions in the
home -he will not seek them on the street
or anywhere everywhere.

The Woman's Home Mission
Society has two distinct funds, the
local funds and the connectional
Local funds are raised by an
auxiliary from suppers, entertain-
ments and so forth and are expended
for home charity, church or par-
Under connectional funds are in-
cluded the regular funds, loan and
endowment funds, special funds and
city mission fiflids.
The regular fund is used for the
support of the society's schools,
parsonage and rescue work. It is
made up of all dues, baby mite bcx
collections, week of prayer offerings
and uninstructed donations.
There is a preachers' wives' loan
fund and a memorial loan fund, their
money being held for temporary
loans to parsonages; also, a named
loan fund kept for loans as contribu-
tors direct. There is an education
endowment fund and a city mission
endowment fund which are invested

Under special funds is the con-
ference expense fund of 25c per
member, $1 per auxiliary for print-
ing annual minutes, deaconess',
scholarship fund of $1 per auxiliary
and McEachern brigade mite box
City mission funds are raised by
the auxiliaries of the cities having
city missions, settlement homes and
so forth. Receipts of monthly ex-
penditures are sent to the general
treasurer and the Woman's Board of
Home Missions makes appropriations
of ten per cent on money spent.
The parsonage half of the dues
collected the past two years has
been retained by the Hereford
auxiliary as a preacher's residence
was badly needed at home.

W. C. Green tells us that he has
ordered a new bakery outfit, same
already having been shipped from
the factory. Mr. Green has been in
the business in this city sufficiently
long to know the demands in this
respect and it is his candid opinion
that the time has arrived when
Hereford will support an enterprise
of the first class of this kind.
Mr. Green will find that our peo-
ple will only be too glad to give
him their patronage and the vent-ure
will not only prove profitable
to the owner, but will be a much
need convenience to the town. It
will likely be about two weeks be-
fore the bakery will be in running
order as Mr. Green means to bare
everything perfectly arranged be-
fore opening for business.
