P. Woody Law Land Cawker City It'd Surprise You How Lumber Counts In the time i it takes to do a certain job. You see some woods have a tough fibre which not only makes them bard to work. but dull your tools quicker'n scat, while other woods work easy. Of course, this sounds somewhat like a lazy man's argument, but believe me the fellow who pays the bills knows its right.

Our way of saving customers money is in the careful selection of lumber for different uses. Let us explain. Cawker City Lumber Co. Obie Gansel, Mgr. Sons of Veterans Organize a Camp Organizer Wilcox, of the Department of Kansas, Sons of Veterans, was here last Friday and in the evening organiz: ed a camp of the Sons of Veterans, 26 charter members being presenf.

although the camp will number fully 50 when all who have signed up report for initiation. In respect for J. F. Snow, the Grand Army man who had been so active in getting the camp organized, he was allowed the privilege of selecting the name of the new organization, and he chose to honor his old commander, hence the camp will be known as "Ben Harrison." The first officers are: Commander-H. L.

Tucker. Senior Vice -U. G. Dial. Junior Vice -L.

S. Mitchell. Adjutant-J. F. Galer.

Treasurer--C. L. Brown. Color Bearer- H. Moxter Jr.

It was decided to march in the parade next Thursday morning, and all members are requested to report at the ball grounds Saturday evening at 8 o'clock sharp for drill instruction by U. G. Dial.

Another meeting will be held next Tuesday evening in the City Hall. Aged Lady Dead At her home in Cawker City, May 10, 1915, Mrs. Harriet Buell died in the 79th year of her age. Miss Harriet Cook was born in Charlotte, April 7, 1837, and was married to L. L.

Buell on August 10, 1862. Three children were born to them, one son dying in infancy and one in 1879, Mrs. Carrie Gordon, of Speed, being the only child living to comfort the husband, L. L. Buell, now in his 90th year.

They remoyed to Kansas in June 1870, settling on a farm north of town and in 1897 came to the place now occupied by. A. Peason for one year, then to their present home. As both Mr. and Mrs.

Buell were semi-invalids for years their home was a sort of community center for the neighbors and friends, who vied with each other in many kindly acts, and as they were deprived from attending church, the ministers and young people were frequent callers and held song service with them. The past winter Dr. Mason has been called many times to relieve her heart trouble and when phoned for Monday night went in another room to mix some medicine leaving her sitting on the bed, but she arose to follow and taking one step over the door sill fell, striking the lamp stand and knocking the lighted lamp to the floor. A hasty examination showed "death had touched her and she slept," the sleep that knows no awakening. The funeral services were held at the home yesterday afternoon, conducted by Rev.

Some girls who like to think of themselves as ladies, but who will never be ladies unless they change their ways, visited the flower garden at R. J. Bohrer's, Sunday evening, and deliberately tore up and destroyed a large number of plants. The girls ase known, we are sorry to say, having left plain tracks when they went home, by scattering flower petals on the way.

Shame on you, girls, girls! The least you can do is to call on Mr. and Mrs. Bobrer and apologize tor the mean little trick you played.

(Copyright, 1914, the McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) The great singen was spending her short vacation in an unusual way. It might be said also that it had been none of her own choosing. What did she know of baby food, or mending holes in Johnnie's stockings as big as buckwheat cakes? How did she know how many days Flossie should wear the same petticoat? The whole three were in bed now, and the great singer relaxed luxuriously. She knew no one in the town, so there was little danger of callers. Her thoughts were as busy as the fingers of the little maid of all work, now doing dishes audibly in the kitchen.

She was thinking how odd it was for her to be there at all. A telegram had been responsible. Sister Jane and her husband William had been called away by trouble in William's family. There had been no one else to ask to look after the children. She had never even seen the baby! Steps suddenly sounded on the little front porch like so many bangs on a bass drum.

Tillie, out in the kitchen, heard and was at the door before her temporary mistress could stop her. "Is this where Miss Farrell is staying?" asked a man's voice. "Joe!" exclaimed Miss Farrell impatiently. "Will he never learn that there isn't a bit of use in chasing after me, wherever I go?" Joe stamped off the snow noisily and came inside. He came in big, glowing and clumsy.

The little room seemed full before he got farther than the doorway. Peggy; in her chair before the fire, half turned -just enough for him to see the top-loftical expression. "Peggy!" he exclaimed delightedly, coming forward. "Good evening, Joe," evenly. "You chose a nice night to come so far.

Won't you sit down?" Joe sat down on the other side of the fireplace. "You look awfully sweet, Peggy. Aren't you glad to see me?" "No!" deliberately. "I--I wouldn't have come- only thought of something after- after we'd been talking the other night." She didn't answer. "You see," shifting uneasily, "if you would marry me, you could go ahead with your singing just the same as ever.

You could sing just as well as Margaret Farrell Sturtevant, as you can as Margaret Farrell. Now, couldn't you? That wouldn't be interfering with your career, would it? and, Peggy, you used to care a little for me!" She watched the fire a minute, relenting. "It's hard to be cross with you, Joe. You just won't let people, will you? I'm going to be extra nice now and explain. "You see, Joe, your plan won't work for a hundred reasons.

You love a home. You're a regular home man if there ever was one. I can't make a home. It isn't in me. I hate everything about a house.

I love my music better than anything on earth, and can't give 1 it up." What she really meant was that the intoxication of public homage was a sensation she would not care to renounce. "All right, my girl, you're the doctor!" Joe got up and looked at his watch. "I didn't suppose it was much use, but I thought I'd make one more try. I won't bother you again, ever. Good-night, Peggy, I've just time for my train." He was gone! Peggy turned out the light and sat watching the fire.

"I guess I'll get the baby her bottle and go to bed," she yawned. A week passed. Peggy was getting expert on mending kneeless stockings, sorting clothes and bathing babies. It never seemed to be a bother any more. Then one night the baby got sick, very sick.

The doctor and trained nurse hastily summoned took it philosophically, saying there was an equal chance of life and death. But Peggy, a poor, white, stricken thing, never leaving the side of the little crib, thought the world was ending. Morning brought a change for the better. The baby would live! Peggy slipped silently away to her room and sat thinking in the cold, wintry dawn. Mr.

Joseph Sturtevant was just settling himself for a nice winter's morning nap. The telephone rang. He was awake in an instant. "Is that you, Joe? This is Peggy! I have changed my mind. And that's all I'm going to tell you until you come out and hear for yourself!" Wasn't Only One With Religion.

"Yassah!" triumphantly said old Brother Cuddyhump. "De revival was a glorious success!
