It is not just nor right to lay sins of
men at the feet of women. It is be-
cause women are so much better than
men that their faults are considered
greater. A man’s desire is the foun-
dation of his love, but a woman’s de-
sire is born of her love. The one
twng in this world that is constant,
the one peak that rises above all
clouds, the one window in which the
light forever bums, the one star that
darkness cannot quench, is woman’s
love. It rises to the greatest heights
and sings to the lowest depths. It for-
gives the most cruel injuries. It is
parental of life and grows in every
climate. Neither coldness nor neg-
lect, harshness nor cruelty can ex-

AN UNWELCOME CATCH
Rats have been causing some an-
noyance in the Wilkins, Wood & Pat-
terson store and a steel trap was set
in the hope of capturing the intruder.
When the store was opened yesterday
the trap had made a catch, but close
inspection showed that the catch was
not a rat. The animal held by the
strong jaws of the trap was beautiful
to look upon, so glosBy and lustrous
was its coat of black, prettily pencil-
ed with white. But the animal ex-
haled an odor that was by no means
pleasing to the olfaetories, it was a
strong odor, a terrible Oder—in fact
it was the attar of a polecat—and all
who went near hung their heads and
held their noses. The cat was shot
in order to remove it from the trap.
Yesterday at noon sulphur candles
were burning in the store and there
had been much fumigation, but there
was still strong evidemoe of Mr.:
Skunk’s vifeit and tragic death.—

SHOE BUTTON REMOVED FROM
|ALMER LADY’S NOSE.
For the past several months Mrs.
H. H. Coplen of this city has suffered
untold agonies with a violent head-
aehe. She had different specialists
and physicians to examine her head,
but would receive only temperary re-
lief. She even had the dentists to
work on her teeth, thinking perhaps
a bad toeth might be causing all the
trouble, but without success. Finally
last week she went to Dr. Jones at
Corsicana, to see what he could do
for her, and he made an examination
with the result that he discovered an
obstruction in her nose that caused
the trouble and which resulted in him
removing from her nose an ordinary
shoe button. It had been there so
long it had almost stopped up the
passage and a hard substance had
grown around it She has had no
mere headaches, and does not knew
how fhe button got in her nose, ex-
cept that it mast have gotten there
when Che was a child.—Palmor Rust-
