DON ’T WAIT.
If you’vo anything Rood to «ay of a man.
Don’t wait till he’s laid to rest.
For the eulogy spoken when hearts are broken
Is an empty thing: at best.
Ah, the blijrhted flower now drooping: alone
Would perfume the mountain side,
If the sun’s glad ray had but shone to-day
And the pretty bud espud.
If you’ve any alms to give the poor.
Don’t wait till you hear the cry
Of wan distress in this wilderness,
Lest the one forsook may die.
Oh, hearken to poverty’s pad lament!
Be swift her wants to allay:
Don’t spurn God’s poor from the favored door,
As you hopo for mercy one day.
Don’t wait for another to bear the burden
Of sorrow’s irksome load;
Let your hand extend to a stricken friend
As he totters adown life’s road.
If you’ve anything Rood to say of a man,
Don’t wait tili he’s laid to rest;

Matrimony is Misfits.
New Orleans States.
Why is it that matrimony is such a
game of “misfits?”
Is it because of the universal law of
like seeking unlike?
I dropped in a few days ago for a
chat with my old friend, Mrs. Adams.
Mrs. Adams’ house always looks like
it is on dress parade. There is never
a speck of dust, and all her belongings
seem to have the knack of a place for
everything and everything in its place.
Her children, too, neveu seem to take
to mud pies, for they are always im
maculate. Well, perhaps they do look
like little mannikins and don’t seem to
be children at all, but anyhow they
lcok like they live in “Spotless Town.”
Mrs. Adams always seems like one
of the women that has never heard of
nerves, so I certainly was surprised
when I found her on the verge of tears.
A modern writer puts it, “all women
are some part of the human anatomy.”
Some are hands, some are head, some
are feet, some are backs. Well, this
time, I was “shoulder.” and Mrs.
Adams was ready to. lean on me and
weep for advice. Bemoaning her hus
band’s neglect, she said:
“I’m a true, faithful wife! I keep
the house clean and the children are well
cared for. Nobody ever sees them with
one stocking up and the other down, or
with holes poking out. Their clothes
are always just so, and there are three
wholesome, well-prepared meals a day.
Still, John is not satisfied. It’s no
use! Husbands are brutes !”
Now. there’s that little Mrs. Roberts
across the street. Her children roam
the neighborhood from morning till
night, and she never knows what is
coming on the table.
Still, she reads all the latest novels
and finds time to practice, and half the
men on the block think she’s perfect
as a wife.
Mr. Roberts, though, doesn’t ap
preciate her, for he is one of the men
always harping on “how mother used
to cook.” He would rather have a
few hot biscuits occasionally and less
music and literature.
Hot rolls and luttons on his shirts
are more to his taste than the “Moon
light So: ata.”
Poor Mrs. Adams ! If you look around
among your friends you won’t need
a searchlight to show you that “matr:
mony is misfits.”
A man, big-hearted, demonstrative
and affectionate, marries a woman who
regards a kiss as do the Connecticut
If he is easygoing and fond of his
men friends, she can’t stand the smell
of tobacco smoke around the house.
He is afraid to have any stag parties
at home, so he seeks his crowd else
After he drifts away she wonders
| why her immaculate housekeeping
can’t make him stay at home.
There is another kind of man who
asks nothing better than his pipe, his
slippers, his dressing gown and some
thing to read.
His wife resents the idea of his lit
erary devotion, so she begins to nag
because he won’t* talk to her. She
harps on all her daily trials—the ser
vants, the children, the high price of
living, the new gown hsr neighbor out-
dresses her with.
When this man takes to going to the
club where he can read in peace and
quiet, his wife is the first one to grow
indignant and resentful.
Thus it goes. The man fond of so-
] ciety marries the woman with no other
thought than her home and habits.
The tired, hard-working physician
comes home nightly seeking rest and
find his wife decked out to alt 2nd some
glittering function. The man fond of
musical comedies and farces is tied to
a woman who thinks all such shows are
vulgar, and who prefers French opera
and Ibsen problem plays. The man
fond of card-playing gets a wife with
Puritan propensities. And the woman
who dotes on bridge marries the
Every one of these “misfits” thinks
how different things would be if only
he or she had selected a different part
ner. It is the same all over the world.
Even where ore has selected a life pro
fession he always thinks he would have
made more of a success at something.
But who knows but what old Nature
is wisest in the end?
This great principle of like selecting
unlike may be what keeps the world
Just as in electricity, where positive
and negative currents are the great
forces of attraction, while like currents
act as repellants.
The Cost of Living.
Prof. Joseph Francis Johnson of the
University of New York presents this
nut for oi|r doctors of political and so
cial economy to crack: “It took $3,-
623 last year to pay for necessaries of
living that could be bought for $2,500
in 1897. Sixty-nine cents ten years
ago had the buying power of $1 of to
And the thing is growing more threat
ening and more onerous for the family
with a moderate fixed income every
day. Indeed, unless some relief is had
the cost of living by 1911 will become
double what it was in 1897. There was
a disastrous financial panic in 1907
that shrunk every estate between the
two oceans and threw thousands and
tens of thousands out of employment;
but it brought to none cheaper shelter.
Your corner grocer will charge 35
cents for a shot rabbit. The man is
scarcely 50, who, as a boy, sold a dozen
trapped rabibts for 50 cents, and made
money and strengthened health in the
business. Two-score years ago a dozen
fine, fat and thrifty pullets could be
had for $2. To-day one such bird will
cost you 75 cents.
Many things worked together to
make our country great, puissant and
opulent—Government founded on liber
ty : a hardy, daring and adventurous
people; empires of virgin, fertile and
cheap lands; a salubrious climate; in
exhaustible stores of cheap raw mate
rials; labor-saving contrivances of the
first inventive genius on earth, and
so on, and so on. But not the least
of the agencies operating to create the
America on the threshold of the twen
tieth Century was cheap living, espe
cially cheap food. That made New
York and Chicago the world wonders
they are. But there is no longer cheap
food fir the suburban population. It. is
a demonstrated fact that the English
workingman eats a cheaper breakfast
than his fellow in America, and his ta
ble is supplied just as bountifully, if
not more so.
Here is how it is: Nothing on the
Englishman's breakfast table is faxed
except coffee, tea, sugar and perhaps
pepper. Everyhing on the American’s
breakfast table is taxed, except cofree,
tea and pepper. It is a fact that your
housewife will supply twenty persons
with coffee for what a steak for one
person will cost, but when it is pro
posed to put a tax on coffee to get a
sorely needed revenue there is horror in
the land and the exclamation: “What!
Tax the workingman’s breakfast!”
The fact is that the tax now levied
on beef alone amounts to more at a sin
gle breakfast than the workingman
would pay in a week on coffee, if the
proposed duty were imposed on it. And
the tax on beef is for a trust, the most
oppiessive of all the octopuses.
Our doctors of political economy must
bestir themselves if they would not
have cheap food the paramount issue in
1910 and 1912. Everybody knows how
such an election would go.
Newnan People Should Learn to De

The symptoms of kidney trouble are
so unmistakable that they leave no
ground for doubt. Sick kidneys ex
crete a thick, cloudy, offensive urine,
full of sediment, irregular of passage
or attended by a sensation of scalding.
The back aches constantly, headaches
and dizzy spells may occur, and the vic
tim is often weighed down by a feeling
of languor and fatigue. Neglect these
warnings and there is danger of dropsy,
Bright’s disease, or diabetes. Anyone
of these symptoms is warning enough
to begin treating the kidneys at once.
Delay often proves fatal.

Father and Son Chums.
Philntlolphm Public Ledger.
The best friend a boy can have is his
own father. Many years ago a boy
thought of his father as a figure of
Mosaic or at least of Aaronic authori
ty, and the father encouraged the son’s
notion of the paternal character. It
never occurred to either that affection
ate and intimate comradeship was pos
sible. The father did not condescend to
any interest in the son’s diversions;
the son never thought of asking his
father to join him in his sports. In his
letters the son subscribed himelf as
“dutiful” or “obedient,” rarely as
“loving” or “affectionate.” It was not
that the boy was not fond of his fath
er; it was because it was not the cus
tom in that day to be demonstrative in
the paternal and filial relationship.
Nowadays it is different. While
there is perhaps less sense of a com
munity of interest in business, owing
to the fact that the son frequently fol
lows a different vocation, there are
more points of intimate social and per
sonal contact between father and son
than there used to be. The boy is no
longer overawed and overwhelmed by
the man; the man no longer considers
it a condescension on his part to take
an interest in the things that interest
his son. Has familiarity bred disre
spect? Does the boy think less of his
father because the latter is more like
an elder brother than a parent? Un
doubtedly there are cases of a lack of
proper respect, because the father is
no longer the awful and forbidding fig
ure he used to be. But on the whole
the son’s respect for his father is in
creased rather than lessened when he
finds that “the old man” is still suffi
ciently young at heart to enter with
zest into the employments and enjoy
ments of a boy.
There is no pleasanter sight than to
see a father on good terms, as a friend
and playmate, with his children. It is
not quite so easy for him to “become
as a little child again,-” for his mo
ments in the nursery, because of his
business preoccupations, are fleeting
and occasional. Some men rarely cross
the threshold of it, and only see their
children when they have on their good
clothes and their company manners. A
man cannot understand his children un
less he becomes to some extent their
playmate, and completely their confi
dant. He will always be a good deal of
an “Olympian” as it is, for it is hard
for the grown man to get and keep the
child’s point of view. He must be very
humble and willing to learn, and he
must never ridicule or frighten a child,
or fail to keep his promise to a child.
For these three things a child finds un
The man who has grown up along
side of his own children will not have
much difficulty in controlling his sons
as they grow older. It is the father
who has never been the best friend of
his boy who has all kinds of trouble as
the son approaches or attains his major
ity. The son feels that his father has
never taken the trouble to understand
him.' He has not thought it worth
while to concern himself in the son’s
problems. Consequently when the son
has become a man and has put away
childish things, father and son find
themselves totally estranged and ouL
of sympathy, when there might have
been cordial community of interest.
A Calculating Bride.
Richmond Pearson Hobson, Represen
tative from Alabama, young, smooth
faced and bald as an onion, is one of
the new members pointed out to the
visitors by the House guides. His con
freres were discussing Hobson the
other evening, and one raised the ques
tion whether he had treated his fame
fairly in leaving the navy, where his
reputation was established, and taking
up a political career.
“That reminds me of what a young
woman once said to me,” remarked
Representative Butler Arnes, who was
one of the party. “She had married a
naval officer, and I asked her why she
did that, as naval officers are away
from home so much.
“ ‘Well,’ said she, ‘I figured up the
thing pretty carefully and 1 concluded
that if my husband didn’t turn nut to
| be my affinity he would be away half
the time, and if he did he would be
home half the time. What more could
one ask?’ ”

Of Eddie Foy, the comedian, it is
everywhere being said that he will
play Hamlet next season.
Interrogated on this interesting mat
ter, Mr. Foy said in a restaurant:

I’d handle Hamlet about the way the
servant girl handled the flatiron. Lis

"On a bitter night of late December
a kind mistress said to her servant
“ 'Jenny, it’s a frightful night. It
presages a white Christmas. And
there’s no fire in your room. I think,
child, you’d better take a flatiron to
bed with you.’
“ ‘Do ye think so, ma’am?’ says
“ ‘Yes, I do’, says the mistress, very
kind and firm. ‘I insist on it. Don’t

in a sullen voice.

A large and robust Irishwoman ap
peared in a New York court recently to
prosecute a case in which her husband
was charged with having beaten her.
The defendant was a small, stoop-shoul
dered man, and had the appearance
of having been run through a thresh
ing-machine, and seemed scarcely able
to stand. The Judge surveyed the two
with an amused light in his eyes.
“You say this man beat you?” he
asked the woman.
“He did not,” the prosecuting wit
ness said with emphasis, folding her
powerful arms. “He knocked me
“You mean to tell me you were
knocked down by that physical wreck?”
the Judge queried.
"’Tis only since he struck me that
he’s been a physical wreck, your hon

A young Englishman, after he had
been in Devil’s Valley for a couple of
months, began to grow thin. Wyom
ing cooking did not appeal to him.
Besides his squeamish appetite, there
was another thing that the natives held
against him—his outlandish custom of
taking a bath every morning. One
day his landlady was discussing him
with a friend.
“I tell ye what. Sal,” said the visi
tor. “he’s jest a-wastin’ away a griev-
in’ for some gal back East thar. ”
“Nothin’ o’ the kind,” said the land
lady, contemptuously. “You mark my
words, now that young feller he’
jest a-washin’ hisself away.”
