A CENTURY OLD WARRIOR.
Spent Most of His Days Far From Civil-
ization and the White Man.
If vou are a knocker read the
article on another pace and see
yourself as others see you. If this
does not convert you then you are
indeed "sot" in you ways.
In a scrap between United State
soldiers and Moros in the Philip
pines near Jolo about 600 Moros
and eighteen Americans were
killed. Several of Uncle Sara's
boys were more or less seriously
Is it worth while to tret and
worry because certain things have
been denied you when you could
scarcely enumerate your blessings
if you tried? Better spend the time
in endeavoring to cultivate a grate
ful happy spirit and the sunshine
that wells up in your heart will
overflow and come back to you iu
a thousand ways.
Is it worth while to make your
self miserable if others speak ill of
vou and attribute vour actions to
wrong intentions? Their judgment
after all is feeble and may vary
with the wind. Learn to live in a
beautiful calm . atmospherejof re-
ligion and high ideals and the ill-
natured words cf others will scarce-
ly be heeded by you.
Is it worth while to let the little
petty annoyances of every day
sour your disposition and make
you a burden to others? If you
have learned tp smile when the
meat is tough or the cook leaves
unexpectedly you are pretty sure
to have a happy home. A man
may overlook a bad dinner oc-
casionally but he grows weary of
a frowning face- J
Is it worth while to be discour-
aged because you have failed in
some undertaking? Success conies j
only to the brave heart and after
repeated effort. If we work for an
object and long for it with all ouH
hearts it will most probably come
to us though seldom at the time
or in the manner we expected; and
should it never come "this frail j
life is not our final rest." ff
Is it worth while to say unkind ijj)
things of others when by doing so f
we injure ourselves mere than we f
do them? Better a word of pity
for a fallen brother since we know Vf
not but that we may share his fate. f
Iu a word is it worth while to
stop end gather thorns and thistles ijff
We have never thought a young
girl should marry unless she either
has enough money to keep a young
man up in good style or is able to
earn a good salary. A young lady
clerk who earns $50 per month
could mairage to get along provid
ed the young man doesn't play
billiards smoke cigars or drink
booze. It he does $50 won't last
him a week. It takes money to
keep up a young husband who goes
the gaits and the girls will find
it out when they tackle the job.
Let the women do the work it
makes mamma's boy tired to think
A certain headmaster of an ele
mentary scnool was examining a
class in a lesson previously given
on the "Three Kingdoms of Na
ture' mineral animal and vege
Headmaster To what kingdom
does the stone belong?
Child Mineral sir.
H. (pointing to a certain bov in
the class) To what kingdom.
C. Animal sir.
H. I'm much taller than that
boy. To what kingdom do I be-
long? C. (after some silence) You are
a vegetable sir.
Faith in the Doctor.
A young laborer went to the
register's office to record his fath
er's death. The register asked the
date of the death says the Boston
'Well father ain't dead yet"
was the reply but he will be dead
before morning and it'll save me
another trip down here if you'll
put it down."
Oh that won't do at all" said
the register; your father may be
well before morning."
Ah no he won't" said the
oung laborer. "Our doctor says
te won't and he knows what he's
Then He'd Smoke All Over.
Wlien we'see a little 7-year-old
pike-headed freckle-faced kid
trolling along the street with a
cigar or cigarette in his mouth we
always have an anxiety to gather
him tenderly inour arms double
him like a pocket knife across a
nail keg and heat him so hot he
will smoke all over for a week. A
better and more just act would be
to giveJiis dear papa the spanking
and let the silly child smoke on.

If every woman's face was her
fortune there would be a. run on

Does Your Wife
Know About It?
Then comelo me and I
will help you "hush it
up." More than one man's
wife is entitled to "make
a holler" about the hus-
band's extravagance in
dress but in ROYAL
TAILORING I offer the
remedy. I am ready for
jury trial and want you
for one of the jurors. In
the line of direct evidence
I shall offer something
like 400 styles of spring
and summer goods for
men's wear. The desire
for well made clothes is
commendable but extrava-
gance is not. I will dress
you stvlishlv and save you

Clinton Ok. In the death
Aiaa woir tne once notea war
chief on his allotment near this
city a few days ago there passed
to the happy hunting ground an
?Jyj unique character of the Cheyenne
tribe of Indians.
Making his advent upon the
stage of life almost if not quite a
century- ago his early days were
spent far away from the white
man and civilization. Roving over
the almost boundless plains hunt
ing the buffalo and antelope he
grew up a typical Indian brave
his highest ambition being to be
come a noted warrior. With his
people he fought at Adobe Walls
where his onlv son was killed. He
claimed to have been in Custer'
The old man enjoyed nothing
more than to sit downx and by the
aid of an Interpreter talk to his
white friends of his many adven
tures. He would tell of the raids
made by his people into Texas and
Mexico. In one incident he related
that a number of Cheyennes went
on an expedition to Mexico.
Iu addition to stealing horses
they at this time took captive sev
eral Mexican girls. When they had
gone for two days and nights with-
out sleep thinking they were now
cut of danger they placed Mad
Wolf -on guard at the top of the
hill while the remainder of the
party went into camp in the valley
below to get a much needed rest
true to the trust conndea in
him Mad Wolf watched the long
night almost through but just as
the dawn began to break sleep
overcame him when suddenly he
awoke to find the white soldiers al
most upon him. There was no time
to give warning to those below in
the vallev: 'twas all he could do to
Ere the sun was an hour high
all his comrades lay dead on the
ground. After days of travel and
suffering frequently from hunger
and thirst Mad Wolf reached his
camp alone in disgrace no troph-
ies no companions.
Poor old man he was ever true
to the traditions of his fathers.
While he clung to the ways and
superstitions of his race he never
forgot a kindness and was ever
true to those whom he considered
In one thing he was far above
the average Indian and that was
his devotion and loyalty to his
wife- When she grew old and blind
he did not throw her aside as is
the Indian custom but tenderly
cared for her and there was noth-
ing more touching than to see him
carefully leading her by the hand
or taking the dinner given him in
camp to be divided with the poor
When she died he had her buried
by the white minister and could
not hnnselt rest until an enclosure
had been placed around her grave
in order that she might not be dis-
turbed by cattle tramping over her
