What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Many place in- the world where there is greater wastefulness than on the farm. The proprietor of a man- ufacturing plant uses the utmost care to see that everything around his institution is carefully pre- served; that the buildings are kept painted; that every picce of machinery is kept in perfect re- pair; every piece of waste material is saved and disposed of where it will bring the best price. The same policy is followed by the merchantand nearly every class except the farmer, In the fall when. he unhitches from a plough, instead of giving it a coat of grease to protect the polished parts and paint to protect the other iron or wood work, in many cases it is left in the field or are very confident in certain ways, yet when it comes to putting themselves forward and becoming a leader among their associates, they feel that they are out of place, or may be considered bold, conceited, ete. There was never &@ man or wo- man born who ever had a success- ful. life, “‘made their mark in the world,” or were well known and well thought of, without they put themselvys forward, and took the lead,” rather than to follow others. It is true that such as have done so were especially adapted by natiire to do so, byt many have cultivated this faculty greatly to their benefit, and you can-do so with little inconvenience to your- self, and greatly to your benefit some corner. until it is covered}; in «a social and financial - way. with rus, and often until the next|Noteat once, but by cultivating time he ‘wishes to use it. same careless method is applied to This | certain habits and practices.

We are ata loss to account for this carelessness on the part of so many farmers. Whether they try to do so much that they are too weary all the time to attend to these minor matters, orwhether they have neyer been taught torea- lize the leaks thatkeepthem down, it may be that both causes con- tribute to it.

A curious example.of the pow- er of suggestion over a supersti- tious mind has just been told me by a man whose name is too well known to be mentioned. He tells the story as his reason for refus- ing to play cards’these days: ‘Several yéars ago,”’ says he, “I was a member of a house party at a clubhouse in the mountains of Pennsylvania. One evening a man who made his home at the clubhouse suggested a game of poker. We made it a five handed game, the ideal number for a pok- er game,I think, and we adjourned to the man’s room to play. Besides the man who suggested the game the party was made up of his wife, who sat at his left; a lady from Washington, who sat at his right, the other man and myself. The man—I‘il call. him B.—was a jovial fellow, with not an ounce of superstition in his makeup, so far as I knew. We played for an hour or so, and the deal came around to the Washington woman. She shuffled woman I ever saw, but as she gave the cards a flip the four of spades flew out of. the pack and fell to the floor at the feet of the man to her left. He -picked it up for her and she said, laughingly: **You onghtn’t to have picked that card up. “It’s the death card. It fell in your room at your feet, and-you picked up bad luck when you touched it.’ ““B. laughed, but -from that minute he began to loose. I was surprised to see how badly he took his ill luck, for we were playing penny-ante, five cent limit, and he could lose but a few cents, no matter what cards he held. The Washington woman bantered him a great deal about the unlucky death card, until he attially grew peevish. Later in the game, after the cards had gone around several times, it came to him, and again the four of spades fell at his feet as he shuffled the pack. “Worse and worse,’ the Washington woman. laughed The death card’s yours for keeps now.” “B. didn’t speak, drew one card and bet all the chips he had, He won the pot on a straight, and the four of clubs was init. I never knew whether ‘it was the one card he had drawn that time or not, for he got up from the table and refused.to play any more. We joked jhim about his ‘cold feet,’ and about quitting as soon as he got his stack back, but he didn’t take it in good part. He left us feeling uncomfortable. Just at daylight his wife aroused the house with her frantic screams. B. was found dead in bed, and I firmly believe he died of fright. The doctor said heart disease, but I’m conviriced that the worry over that foolish four of spades brought on the attaek of heart failure. 1 always deny being superstitious, but perhaps I am, for since that minute Ive never been able to bring myself to touch. cards again.” Pe “That reminds me ‘of a singu- lar death which occurred in an Ohio .town,’’ said a man. who had ‘}istened - to. the death-card story, as prettly as any} own, had dilated the enntity of a halfecrazed woman who blamed him for the death of her husband. Shethreatened again and again to kill him, and once tried to shoot him in his office. The doctor kept the matter hushed up,natura- lly, but it worried his wife des- perately.. The’ half demented woman declared that if she couldn’t. kill the doctor with a weapon she could do it by prayers. One night the doctor was aroused from sleep by the ‘ringing of the telephone bell. The telephone was on a landing half way up the stairs. The doctor got up to answer the call. “Tf it’s that crazy woman don’t talk to her,’ his wife called after him. She heard him say ‘Hello,’ and then ‘Yes,’ and than he asked; ‘Who is this?? It was evidently the mad woman who had called him up, for ns wife heard him say, ‘I can’t talk to you now.’ Then she heard him hang up the receiver. The next instant there was the noise of a horrrble fall and when his wife ran down she found her husband lying at the foot of the stairs. He had only fallen a few feet, but his neck was broken and it has never been possible to dissuade his wife from her conviction that this half-mad enemy brought him to his death.’’ Montana,Mention.
