to borrow his neighbors copy every week.
The activity with which the big rail-
. roads of the country are pushing their
lines into the Panhandle and plains coun-
try is certainly sufficient to convince the
most skeptical of the great agricultural
development that is going on in this sec-
tion and of its prosperous condition.

It was a angerous game to feign madness and he who
began by being mad merely north-norwest might ultimately
find himself mad at all points of the compass. The great actor
who had found a part that fitted him like a glove could not
.lwas divest himself of it in a hurry. It was told of Mrs.
Siddons that on the nights following' sonic of her greatest
triumphs she was profoundly agitated and when unrobed walk-
ed about for hours in the silence and solitude of her bedroom
unable to disassociate herself altogether from the feelings of
the Y'olumnia or Mrs. llaller she had represented. Rachel had

For this reason an article on the telephone
which appears in the April number of The
World's Work would prove not only entertain-
ing but instructive. The article is authored
by Herbert N. Casson who possesses the en-
viable faculty of writing interestingly about
reapers ' r ; i "dstones as occasion may de-
mand. Mr. Casson calls attention to the almost in-
credible fact that no farther back than 1885
the American Telegraph and Telephone Com-
pany one of the pioneer developers of the in-
dustry had a capital stock of no more than
$100000. That sum today would prove but'
an infinitesimal drop in an ocean of invest
ment; a statement which may be more readily
believed when Mr. Casson shows that in New
York City alone there arc more telephones to-
day than in the four countries of France Belg-
ium. Holland and Switzerland combined.
Referring to the Bell system alone Mr. Cas-

It was a question worthy of consideration whether Ham-

ABOU BEN ADHEM.
Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!)
Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace
And saw within the moonlight in his room
Making it rich and like a lily in bloom
An angel writing in a book of gold;
Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold
And to the oresence in the room he said
"What writest thou?" the vision raised its head
And with a look made of all sweet accord
Answered "The names of those w ho love the Lord.'
"And is mine one?" said Abou; "Nay not so."
Replied the angel. Abou spoke more low
But cheerly still; and said "I pray thee then.
Write me as one that loves his fellowmen."
The angel wrote and vanished. The next night
It came strain-with a srreat wakening light
- C! w -
And showed the names whom love of God had blesstl
And lo! Ben Adhem's name led all the rest.
