The Ideal friend Is the one who will give you a loaf when be bus but two tlie real friend is the one wtio give you a loaf hen he bar no use for it himself. Generosity is generally a form of vanity. Conscience is an obtrusive thing. It always speaks when we are trying to listen to something else. Nothing In oature Is us bud as It might be.

Rosea have thorns, but it could easily be worse. Tncy might have bud tongues. Love Is largest at its birth. Your friends are the persons to whom you confide your secrets and they give them away. From observation ire think there is one advantage in being rich you don't uave to appear so.

The deep pathos of poverty Is seen in its shallow sources of joy. Perhaps tbe surest way to learn our faults is to tell others of tlieir's. They will be too modest to be alone io their defects, they will fear It will make them disagreeably conspicuous and will seek our fuults and tell us of tbem. Madame Yale says that "not to be beautiful is a crime." Wo are glad that there are nogroundsforacriminal action on that score against Jacob Blivkxs. Ep worth League.

Maggs. Song, "Marching Song of Praise." A very cordial Invitation is extended to the public to share with us tbe benefits of this service. A special invitation has been sent to Bethany, Gofh, and Netawaka Ep worth Leagues. Bum or Bury Tbem. Why do people who seem to be good citizens in most respects persist in the custom of throwing carcasses of dead animals into the hollows and creeks and leaving them there to contaminate tbe air and water, making pest places of tbe glades and glens that would other wise be beautiful at this season of birds and flowers? Tbe hygienic laws forbid it.

The laws of tbe State forbid it, and provide severe penalties for those who offend in that way; but that seems to make no difference to the oBendors. People whose hogs die with the cholera throw them in the creeks and send the contagion down tbe valleys on its mis sion of death. It should be stooped. If no milder means will stop it, a few $100 lines, the penalty for each offense, should be imposed, as we understand the law directs. Santa Ana (Cal.) Blade: Mrs.

J. W. Kerr entertained at a six o'clock tea last evening in honor of her husband's forty- first birthday. A very pleasant evening ensued. These guests were present: Messrs.

Miss Dora Lynn is attending the sum-tut term of the Emporia Normal school. She completed her year's work In the Soldier schools April 23rd. Miss Daisy Swerdfegcr gave a picnic for the cbildten of Aurora school, district 14, and treated them to tee cream, last Saturday afternoon. A pleasant time was reported. Seneca Tribune: Fourteen days after the tornado at Joseph Ford's plucei southeast of town, a cow was found buried under a straw stack, alive but so weak that she had to be Guy Graham came down from Bern Friday evening, attended the May-day ball, saw bis friends and his best girl, and wer.t back to work Monday.

Dr. Graham drove to Sabetbu, and Guy went bv train from there to Bern. Atchison Champion: Seneca is to have a shoe factory. That is sensible. There is no reason why shoes cannot be made as cheaply and well in Kansas as in New York or Massachusetts.

Tbe more factories in Kansas the better for the farmers and nil concerned. The, following from a letter dated May first, written by James W. Kerr, of Santa Ana, California, (it accompanied a money order for Thk Spkctatoii) will be of interest to our readers: "All Wetmorites here are thriving, and everybody is picknicking to-day, aB to-day is California's gala day." Courier-Democrat: Our old friend E. Otraptield, of Wetmore, was in the city last Friday, shaking hands with old friends and renewing acquaintenecs. He made these quarters a pleasant call while here and swapped a few new yarns.

His health is gradually growing better, and we hope will soon have completely recovered. Efflngham New Leaf: It is probable a receiver will be appointed for tbe Central Branch road, and it will be managed as an independent line in the near future, with Atchison as a terminus. The Missouri Pacific is asking the council of Atchison city for right of way through that oity to connect with its Omaha track, as it now uses the Central Branch tracks. Members of the Methodist Junior League had a picnic at Uncle John Bradford's lake Saturday afternoon. A rig from each livery barn went to furnish transportation to and from the picnic place.

The Leaguerj went boating on the little lake. The only accident re ported was the dipping of a couple of boots-full of water by the oarsman; but 'tis said that he was once a Campbellite, So of course he could never drown. S. K. Linscott, of Holton and Old Mexico, was in tbe city from Sunday until Wednesday.

His description of things in our sister Republic Is very interesting. We heard it remarked that- the lecture on AlasKa some time uko was not "in it" with Mr. Lin- seott's conversation about the hotel Sunday evening. He drove a beautiful team of chestnuts with white stock ing. a Dltv that the overcbeck rein was ever in vented.

Sabetha Star: S. Vilott. of Seneca was visiting old friends in Sabetha several days last week. He lived in Sabetha ta-nniT-ilve vears aeo. and says there are very few dwellings and not one bnsl ness man here now that was located here that.

time. Mr. Vilott is one of the pioneers of the county, locating here in 1850. As be Is getting oia ana oas oj hard labor and by enduring many privations and hardships, gathered together enough of this world's goods to keep himself and wife comfortable the balance of their days, he concluded to take fife easy, and moved from his farm In Capioma township to Seneca several raomhs to Ht with the nabobs. place, with all the truck a crow In, go he moved.

In deep disgrace. An now fer that'ere question I alius wished to know, how the lllae left that garden an got out here; an so the other night I thought it nut, an now It 's clear as day. tlow quar I never knowed be-fore jus how it got away. W'y Adam's soul was plum up full, an tha want no more room fer ary other flower but the purple lilac bloom. Now Adam, when he got outside an fonn' no lilacs grew excep bark in the garden tbat'ere, lus made Mm blue.

So sllppln 'long the pickets, he hunted fer a sprout; but poor ol' feller couldn't tin' one bush aerowln out. When the Angels saw him peekln an lookin wist ful back, thev knowed. an pulled a lilac up an poked It through a crack. An so of Adam kep it, an bis klnfolks alius will, with the scent of angel gar dens a cllngin to it still. Now, when I reach thatcitr, the silent city white It don't make any difl'rence If I halnt done allr.MrlghU-Romeniber how tbem angels done fer Adam long ugo.

an let me have ono lilac bush upon my grave to grow. b. Eden In Kansas. Henry Eden, a boy in knee pants, who ran awav from his home in uuiana a rew davs ago, is tlioneht to be in hiding near Atchison. His father spanked Him ror kissing a school girl, and he took um brage at it and left home.

Champion. Here be can live up to his last name. which is always mirrored in the eyes of Kansas girls. The Kansas atmosphere alone, unmixed with kisses. Is equal to it.

Let him stay and there will be no more spanking necessary. A bird's-eye view of an average Kansas girl will equal a kiss anywhere else. On May 4th Miss Jennie Broderick, daughter of Hon.
