amount to more than was needed
to run the school, but ‘this full

Every man of any consequence

Just so. But all of us claim the
right to our opinion of the other
fellow for holding such opinions as
he does, and we want to talk about
it too. That’s what does the
trouble. An opinion kept to him-
self never got a man into an argu-
ment over which he fell out with
his neighbor.—Bonham News.
If you want to stop taking a pa-
per and at the same time retain the
respect of the editor, call at the
office and pay what you owe on
subscription. Do not write a pos
tal saying: ‘‘Please stop sending
your paper to me as 1 do not want
it any longer,” or put it back in
the postoffice marked ‘‘refused?’
That makes an editor mad, and if
he ever did think much of you he
will change his mind right then.
—Big Springs Enterprise.
Regardless of what the editor
may think of him, it certainly
right for a man to pay his honest
debts. If anybody deserves his
pay, the editor certainly does.
Rural telephone service, in connection with
the Long Distance System of this Company, is
of incalculable advantage to the farmer and
his family. It enables you to get the weather
reports pf the U. S. signal service and affords
facilities for ascertaining the latest market quotations.
Furnishes protection to the weaker members of
the household and promotes social intercourse with
relatives and neighbors. RATES VERY LOW.

The ladies of a Sherman church
have entered into an agreement to
remove their hats upon entering

take not there is a verse in Holy
Writ which says ‘‘it is a shame for

dodged from side to side for half a
minute, vainly endeavoring to pass
while the other person by some
strange fatality blocked your every

Such was the recent experience
of a young man in Portland. Maine
He and a strange young woman
had been goiug through this per-
hatless 1 formauce for several seconds,when
his unwilling vis-a-vis stagered
him by saying:
Well, hurry up! Which is it to
be—a waltz or a two-step.” — Wo-
man's Home Companion for April.
A particularly winsome and at-
tractive looking giri entered a street
car a few days ago. Her dress of
blue, while noJ,$ e xpensiveniat-
erial, was perfectly fitted and ev-
ery detail of her costume from the
feathers on her hat to her dainty
boots was in periect harmony, set-
ting forth the lines of her trim fig-
ure to the best advantage. Her
complexion was fresh and clear
and her face v*rs apparently inno-
cent of cosmetics. On a muggv
day she seemed to carry with her
a real breath ol spring* scarcely a
passenger on tl$ car failed to no-
tice her or to t»irn for a second
glance as she fodk her seat. Pres-
ently the conductor came around
for the fares and she removed
her glove to fish ill her shopping
bag tor a nicte,—then, a dirty,
grimy hand came into view, each
nail tipped with;A shining streak
of black. A moment later she re-
moved the glove from the other
hand which perfectly matched its
fellow. More than one man shrug-
ged his shoutffers as he turned
back to his newspaper. The charm
of the girl was gone. Perhaps
some of the passengers paused to
wonder if the fault was entirely
due to the girl herself or whether
she had been reared without due
respect f o r such commonplace
things as soap and water.—Hol-
land's Magazine for April.
