THIS MAN, JONES.
The Wittiest Man I Ever Knew.
The American Magazine has
been offering prizes for the best
letters written on the subject.
"The Wittiest Man I ever linew.”
Following is one of several prize
winning letters published in the
“The wittiest man I ever knew,
and I have known many, was not
a Yankee, ora Dutchman, neither
was he an Irishman, but a genuine,
thoroughbred Welshman who liv
ed and died among the mountains
“It is an acknowledged fact that
the greatest living statesman is a
little Welshman, none other than
the Honorable David Lloyd-George
and the wittiest man I ever
knew was one of the same nation
ality, named Jones.
“Although never in ihis great
country of ours himself, yet his
sayings are repeated from the At
lantic to the Pacific coast.
Preaching, shop-keeping, law
and medicine were ail vocations of
Ihis man Jones. He combined
wit with addressing his parishion
ers, serving his customei^, his
clients, and administering to the.
physical ailments of his patients.
“He was a liirge, tall, lanky man,
digniHed and patriarchal in appear
ance, and would crack a joke with
out even a smile on his counte-
“Once, while having his shoes
shined, the bootblack remarked
that he never saw a shoe of im
mense size, when Jones quickly
replied I have, the shoe is on the
"A wag came to the store one
day and asked for a ‘yard of bacon. ’
Jones immediately wrapped in
paper three pig’s feet. What is
this you are giving me? asked the
man. 'Did you not ask for one
yard of bacon?’ asked Jones.
‘Yes, replied the man. ‘Well,
three feet make one yard,’ quick
ly replied the merchant,
“Jones had a habit of smoking
occasionally. A brother minister
rebuked him, remarking that to
bacco was no good.
“ ‘Then we will burn it up,’
“ ‘One time Jones complained
of rheumatism in one of his knees.
His guest remarked it was a sign
of old age. ‘Well,’ answered
Jones, ‘the other knee is old, but
has not the rheumatism.’
“While on the street one day,
two men met Jones, and wanting
some fun accosted him with,
‘Jones, have you heard the news?’
‘No,‘said Jones. ‘What is it?’
They answered sadly, ‘The devil
is dead.' Quickly taking two
pence from his pocket, Jones gave
one to each man, saying as he did
so, ‘1 always remember the or
“In one of his sermons Jones
compared a miser to a pig, saying
that ‘nt^good can come from eith
er while they are living.’
In his last illness Jones still re
tained his wit. The lawyer who
was sent for to make his will,and his
physician each stood on either side
of his bed, when Jones calmly re
marked, ‘To-day I am like my

THE VOLUNTEER ORGANIST.
The great church wuz crowded full uv broadcloth and uv silk.
An’ satins rich as cream that grows on our ol' brindle’s milk;
Shined boots, biled shins, stiff collars an’ stovepipe hats were there.
An’ dudes with trouserloons so tight they couldn't kneel down in prayer.
The elder in his poolpii high said, as he slightly riz :
“Our organist is kep to hum, laid up 'ith roomatiz.
An’ as we hev no substitoot, as Brother Moore ain’t here,
Will some ’un in the congregation be so kind’s to volunteer?”
An’ then a red-nosed, drunktn tramp of low-toned, rowdy style.
Give an introductory hiccup, an then staggered up the aisle.
Then thro’ that holy atmosphere ihere crep a sense er sin.
An’ ihro’ that air of sanctity the odor uv ol’ gin.
Then Deacon Purington he yelled—his teeth all sot on edge :
“This man purfanes the house of God ! W’y, this is sacrilege
The tramp didn’ hear a word he said, but slouched ’ith stumblin’ feet,
An’ sprawled an’ staggered up the steps, an’ gained the organ seat.
He then went pawin’ through the keys, an’ soon’tliere rose a strain
That seemed to jest bulge out the heart, an’ 'lectrify the brain;
An' then he slapped down on the thing 'iih hands an' head an’ knees.
He slam-dashed his hull body down kerflop upon the keys.
The organ roared, the music flood went sweepin' high and dry.
It swelled into the rafters, and bulged out into the sky;
The ol’ church shook an’ staggered, an' seemed to reel an’ sway,
An' the elder shouted “Glory” an' I yelled out “Hooray !”
An' then he tried a tender strain that melted in our ears,
That brought up blessed memories an’ drenched ’em down ’ith tears;
An' we dreamed of ol' time kitchens, 'ith Tabby on the mat,
Uv home an' luv an' baby days, an' mother an' all tha^!
And then he struck a streak uv hope—a song from souls forgiven—
That burst from prison bars uv sin an’ stormed the gates of Heaven;
The mornin' stars they sung together—no soul was left alone—
We felt the universe wuz safe, an’ God wuz on his throne !
An’ then a wail uv deep despair an' darkness come again.
An’ long black crape hung on the doors uv all the homes uv men;
No luv, no light, no joy, no hope, no songs uv glad delight.
And then—the tramp he staggered down an’ reeled into the night.
But we knew he’d tol' his story, tho’ he never spoke a word.
An' it wuz the saddest story that our ears had ever heard;
He hed told his own life history, an' no eye wuz dry that day,
W’en the elder rose and simply said : “My brethren, let us pray.”

OLD TIME FRIENDS.
Friends of my earlier years, behold, I greet you
Across the void of time that rolls between,
But, candidly, I do not care to meet you.
Be not offended, please—know what I mean.
In those dear old days of sentiment and passion
About each form was wrapt a golden haze,
A glamour of romance, in youth’s best fashion—
'Tis faded now, O friends of other days !
Something remains that's nobler, liner, higher,-
'Tis true; but something has there been of change.
Tried have we all been in vehement fire.
And what is left is fine—but oh, how strange !
I scarcely know myself now by my chatter.
My attitude toward life, likes, tastes—and then
I’m growing rather bald and somewhat fatter
And always go lo sleep ’twixt nine and ten !
I'riends of my youth, your memories I treasure.
And in my day dreams often with you play—
1 shouldn’t like to know what your waists measure.
Or see your ragged locks so thin and gray.
My sweetheart, Jane, of rare and radiant beauty.
In my dreams I see you still, a vision bright;
To see you really—well, that’s not my duty!
Excuse me, sweetheart t|f youthi Good night!

Through the Qreen Earth Runs a
Red Stream. It la the Blood
When this streams enters upon
a wild continent, forests become
houses, rivers bear cities, as pearls
upon their silver thread, deserts
are watered and become fruitlul,
mountains are tunneled, the earth
is corded with wires where
on thoughts run, and all things are
mastered by the red line.
Green is a mighty color, the hue
of the field and forest; and yellow
is imperial, the lint of the sun and
of gold; and blue is vast and infi
nite, the tone of the sea and of the
sky above it; but red is lord of them
all, for it is the cast of what is
mightier than all—life.
Red is the color of Force. Hence,
it is the fighting color. It is not
without reason that the British sol
dier wears a red coat and the
French soldier red trousers, that
the Turk puts on a red fez and the
anarchist waves a red fiag. Red
means life at its fiercest activity.
Everybody knows that red e.\-
cites the bull. Prof. W. Peabody
Bartlett is authority for the state
ment that red also makes the roos
ter crow, the dog bark, the spider
bile and the wasp sting.
It is because red incites to intense
self-expression that tradition has
clothed the Devil in this tint; as
goodness has been usually ini-
derstood lo consist in submission
to authority and conforming to cus
tom, and badness in following one's
Red is the sign of authority; it is
the color of the cardinal’s hat.
It is the signal of individuality
and rebellion. For long it was the
custom upon the stage to
dress every adventureress, every
woman of the half world, in clothes
of this shade.
Curiously enough, red is also
the sign of innocence in mediaeval
symbolism. In the paint
ings in the Boston public
library, by Abbey, of scenes in the
life of Sir Galahad, the hero Is
clothed in red. While white ex
presses the innocence of ignorance
of virgins and celebrates, red is the
expression of the innocence of the
wise and tried, of the warrior for
truth, and of all who battle blame
lessly in this naughty world.
The Jews were forbidden by the
tews of Moses to consume the
blood of animals; it was to be
poured out upon the ground, as
sacred unto the Lord, “for the
blood is the life.”
So should the great eyes of some
mighty spirit look down upon this
earth and take cognizance thereof
of all its doings and creations, the
obfect that would interest him most
would be the red stream of life,
coming down the cascades of the
centuries, flowing everywhere up
on land and sea, and manifesting
itself always in powei^and lordship.
Forest fires never make much
headway among family trees.

WHY IS WELDON FIRM?
Because Its Citizens Have Learned
After reading this generous and
encouraging report from Mr. Tye
those who have the misfortune to
suffer, as he did, will naturally long
to get similar relief. But to get
the same good as Mr. Tye had,
you should get the same remedy.
There are of course, other kidney
pills but there are no other kidney
pills the same as Doan’s. That is
why Weldon people demand the
G. W. Tye, Maple St., Weldon,

that I have been benefited by
Doan’s Kidney Pills, procured at
Cohen’s Drug Store. My kidneys
gave me a great deal of trouble and
I had pains through my loins. After
taking Doan's Kidney Pills all these
aches and pains disappeared and
the troubles with my kidneys be
came a thing of the past. ’ ’
