The Bible say :‘‘Choose ye this day
whom ye will serve” So He has given
you your choice. If you choose the

savior no one is to blame but your
self ;so now my sinner friend choose
the better way and come to Christ
while you have the chance. You don’t
know how long you may have this
chance. You see many are taken very
suddenly. The Bible says ‘ be ye also

Old Mines Exploded.
A strange fatility is reporten from
Japun. A floa ting mine, a legacy
from the Russo Jaoanese. War, which
has ever since been drifting around
on the sea, struck the shore at Akita
on the west coast ut Japan and explo
ding killed a ten and wounded 150
villagers. The sea of Japan was sown
with these floating mines in that war
and thtv have been a source of much
fsur ever since ana several of them
have exploded. That one of them
should work such murderous havoc
among inno ent villagers more than
a year after the close of the war is a
petheticaily sad event. War is dread
ful enough whi e it Is doing its work
without leaving oehind it such flout

Helpful Hints For the Housekeeper.
Value of Tissue Paper.
The tissue paper in which parcels
are wrapped should never be thrown
away, but smoothed out and laid
away in a drawer for future use. A
small pad of tissue paper sprinkled
with methylated spirit will give a
brilliant polish to mirrors, picture
glasses and crystal. The pad, used
without the spirit, is excellent for
burnishing steel, rubbing grease
spots oft furniture, polishing silver,
etc. J r or packing glass, china and
ornaments a roll of tissue paper is
invaluable. When packing hats a
wisp of tissue paper should be twist
ed round all upstanding ends of
ribbons, ospreys and wings to pre
vent crushing. Dress and blouse
sleeves should be stuffed with soft
paper and a sheet of it placed be
tween the folds. Silk handker
chiefs, ribbons and lace should all
be ironed between a layer of tissue
paper, and the latter is a line pol
isher of steel buckles and hatpins.

To The Public:
I have recently bought the
“Me Cord Grist Mill,” situated
on Yellow Water Creek, near
the city of Jackson. This mil!
has*had. for years, the reputa
tion of making “The Best Wa
ter Ground Meal,” mill
in this section, It will be oper
ated by the veteran miller, Mr.
J. T. Bennett, which is a guar
antee that its former high re
cord will be kept up, and that
its customers will receive
prompt service, and courteous
treatment. The mill will be
thouroughly renovated, and
put in condition to grind from
5o to 75 bushels per day; so
do not be afraid ot delays, but
bring your corn right on, to
the mil!. Mr. Bennett will
keep fresh meal o 1 hand, to
exchange with those who wish
to exchange corn for meal.
Farmers in coming to Jackson
to market can bring along a
few sacks of corn without any
delay. The merchants
of Jackson will keep fresh
stock Dt this McCords Water
Ground Meal, t to supply their
numerous customers. So al
wa\ s call for McCords Water
(1 round Meal, and take no sub
si itute, and you may rest as
sured, when you g w t it, (if its
fresh; and ground out of good
corn, you get good meal, This
mill being a “lionie Institu
tion,” and near enough for
you to se<* and know what is
being done, I hope to be fa
vored with your friendship
