A Keal Love letter.
When I begin a letter to you, the
great difficulty is to leave off again.
Oh: how warm it makes one feel to
know there is one person in the
world to whom one is everything!
A lover is the most precious, the
most marvellous possesion. No
wonder people like having them!
And 1 used to think that so silly
Heavens! What an absurd person I
have been. Why, love is the one
thing worth having. Everything
else talents, interests, arts, religion,
learning, the whole 'tremblement',
are so many drugs with . which the

their pangs, to put themselves to

the world is very good and pleasant
up in those serene, frost-bitten re
gions where you stand alone, breath

misty suu of general esteem. Then
comes love, and pulls you down.
For isn't it a descent? Isn't it?
Somehow, though it is so great a
glory, it's a coming-down as well
down from the pride of absolute in
dependence of tody and soul, down
from the high-mightiness of indif.

and consuming. From "Fraulein

Once again the death angel Las vitited
this lowland of sorrow and taken from our
midst one of earth'a fairest flowers. On
September the 20th we were called to wit

who died of bronchal pneumonia at the home
of his parents John ami Eva Scotteu.
Little Francis was born at Wabash, Iml.

Carolina with his parents in 11)04. He
leaves a father, mother two sisters and one
brother to mourn their loss. He was pre
reeded to the Heavenly land just seven
weeks by his little sister Helleu.
All earthly love and skill could not save
him. Heaven opened wide her everlasting
gates for another one to enter the realms cf
day and wear a jeweled crown.

The soul is safe in Heaven.
Among the stiiking outdoor books
of ti e year Mr. Horace Kephart's

many years he has spent a large
amount of his time iu the woods,
and his book covers every detail
which-the novice or the inexperi

about, from the kind of mosquito

with all the charm of the story.
