Contrary to the expectations of many of the operators, the market for zinc ores has materially brightened and a number of sales were made at prices ranging from $41 to $42 per Ion. Especially were the sales heavy in Webb City, the greatest activity being displayed in that quarter. The zinc ore market opened this week with the depressed conditions of the previous week's low prices and scare sales hanging over it, and on Monday the offers made ranged from $40 to $40.50. Many operators took it for granted that the market would not advance over that figure, and prepared to hold ores until the middle of January. Tuesday showed no better offerings, but on Wednesday the market again stiffened and showed prices quoted as high as $42. Shipments last week showed a heavy tonnage and there were still no reimrts of the .sales from the Lynch and ^\^!liams' bins at Galena, where, for two weeks, the Cockerill Zinc company has been load ing out their purchase of 1.000 tons, there were a few other buyers still loading the ore formerly purchased, but the majority cleaned up their inirchases before the week closed. Their short huyins last week left quite a large tonnage of surplus from last week's production, which helped to swell the depleted tonnage from the previous three weeks' heavy pur- fhases. There were a number of new irodueer.-; added to the ILst of operating plants last week, but there werf ilso two plants shut down which have lH >en in the producing list for a number (if months.

A coal cart stopped before an office building in Washington and the driver dismounted, remoV^ the cover from a manhole, ran out his chute, and proceeded to empty the load. An old negro strolled over and stood watching him. Suddenly the black man glanced down and immediately burst into a fit of uncontrollable laughter, which continued for several minutes. The cart driver looked at him in amusement. "Say, Uncle," he asked, "do you always laugh when you see coal going into a cellar?" The negro sputtered around for a few moments and then holding his hands to his aching sides managed to say, "No, sah, but I jest busts wJien I sees it goin' down a sewer.'' The advertiser who displays lack of judgment in selecting the newspapers which carry his copy often confuses the sewer and the cellar. All the money that is put into newspapers isn't taken out again by any means. The fact that all papers possess a certain physical likeness doesn't by any means signify a similarity in character, and it's character in a newspaper that brings returns. The editor who conducts a journalistic sewer finds a different class of readers than the publisher who respects himself enough to respect his readers. What goes into a newspaper largely determines the class of homes into which the newspaper goes. An irresponsible, scandal-mongering, muck-raking sheet is logically not supported by the buying classes of people. It niay be perused by thousands of readers, but such readers are seldom purchasers of advertised goods. It's the clean-cut, steady, normal-minded citizens who form the bone and sinew and muscle of the com.- munity. It's the sane, self-respecting, dependable newspaper that enters their homes and it's the home sale that indicates the strength of an advertising medivim. No clean-minded father of a family wishes to have his wife and children brought in contact with the most maudlin and banal phases of life. He defends them from the sensatiopal editor and the impleasant advertiser. He subscribes to a newspaper which he does not fear to leave about iJie house. Therefore, the respectable newspaper can always be counted upon to produce more sales than one which may even own a larger circulation but whose distribution is in ten editions among tmprofitable citizens. You can no more expect to sell goods to people v/ho haven't money than you can hope to pluck oysters from bushes. It isn't the number of readers reached but the number of readers whose purses can be reached that constitutes the value of circulation. It's one thing to arouse their attention, but it's a far different thing to get their money. The mind may be willing, but the pockeibook is weak. If you had the choice of a thousand acres of desert land or a hundred acres of oasis, you'd select the fertile spot, realizing that the larger tract had less value because it would be less productive. Just s-j the advertiser who really understands how he is spending hi^ money does not measure by bulk alone. He counts productivity first. He takes care that he Ls not putting his money into a sewer.

This matter must not be reprinted without special penylsslon.] living With Natnre. A friend of mine has a friend of bis own who had lived In New York ao long that he was filled with a wild desire to be a hermit If only for a month. At least that was what he thought. But that Is the nnb of the story. "So you want to live with nature?" saJd my friend. '•I surely do." replied he. smitten with the wild desire. "I want to go into the woods and not see a human being for a whole month. I have to rub np against so many people they get on my nerves. The call of the wild' for mine! Take me to the woods and let me go. I yearn to sleep on the ground and to live In a hut of branches and lenvoK. What my soul pants for Is to catch my own flsh, kill my own game and cook my own food." '•Perfectly sure that is what you wantr "Sure? Why, man, I have dreamed of It for years.' Xo lovesick boy ever yearned for a girl as 1 long to be a hffrmlt. '•Well,", said my friend, "why don* you? I have a farm up In the hills where you can take to the brush and be aa you start In on this back to nature game you have got to stick It out. As for getting your own food, that Is nonsense. 1 will have provisions put out T)y a certain tree for you every mom lug. If .vou want anything In addition you can pin n note to the tree. This arrangement will make It unnecessary for you to see or stieak to a human bC' Ing, but Uou'i you dare show your face at the house." "Now, don't worry about hie and my fn<p," replleil ho of the nature lust "If .vou see my physlbg within the prescribed thirty days you arc at llljcrty to break It, make a football of It or do anything else your playful fancy suggests. Lead me to the wilderness." On the evening of the next day my friend's hired man reported that some one was peeping around the trees at the edge of the woods and wanted to know If he should set the dogs on him or go out and break him In two by main strength. On venturing forth to Investigate my friend found his friend who want ed to be a hermit "I thought yon were not coming out of the woods for a month." he cried sternly. "Well—er—er—I haven't had time to thatch up a hut and wanted to know If I might sleep in that old, abandoned sheep shed.' My friend's heart smote him, and he weakly consented. "But don't you come down here again," he added warnlngly. As darkness was beginning tO fall the hired man reported once more that the same chap was peeping around the corners of the barn. Thereupon my friend grew exceed Ing wrath, but was struck with contrition a second time when he saw the white and scared face of the near-hermit "There are animals In that woods," chattered he of the nature lust "I heard one screaming on th^ bill and another smelling around the door." "You blamed fool!" irately rejoined my frieud. "There Isn't s wild animal within forty miles. That was probU' bly a screech owl and a pig. You're a fine hermit, you are. Back to the brush!" But the nature lust man begged so piteously to sleep In the bam that nothing but a heart of stone could withstand him. The same night about bedtime there enme n weak knock at the door. My friend himself opened It and was greeted with n hoarse whisper: "There are rats in that barn. Do you want a man eaten in cold blood and to have his gnawed skeleton on your premises to, accuse you?" "Say!" exploded my friend, after which be did say many burning and sizzling things which the postofflce department would object to having repeated. After he had exhausted his vocabulary, both sacred and profane, compunction again smote him, and the nian who wanted to live In the woods was allowed to sleep between sheets after the manner of other animals with two legs. The next morning he went back to Broadway, from which it has since been impossible to lure him, even for two weeks' vacation. Character. The world is a workshop in which to build character. The tooUi ore the duties and opportunities that come to men. The materials out of which the stractnre is made are the inherited tendencies and unformed characteristics bound up In the individual. The workman is the soul. 'He gives his orders through the will. Sometimes both the materials and tools are poor. Yet If they are used to the be^t advantage the Great Contractor can hardly find fault In the great majority of cases, however, the implementa and the timber are very much alike and are good. . .^f, In these cases the rssnlt depeqda. wliolly upon the workmanaUp—on t§^ •moont of akin,' labor and conacianea' Virt into tb« ^Awt. •tw», • - - • Compeniation. Perhaps there Is not so much glitter about being a farmer as there is in bc- hig a Btatetimau, but a man sleeps more nights and doesn't have so much to trouble bis conscience. There Is probably a great deal of fascination In having people throw their hats for you, but I notice that men who follow that sort of thing all their lives do not live to be very pld. After all. there are a great many compensations about being a nobody. For one thing, you can do as you please. A great many thirst for fame and after they get it would bo glad to trade It off for a small amount of old fashioned peace and happiness. The first time I' ever saw the White House It looked like a prison. Since that time I have had a profound pity for the president of the United States. But dearie, there is no need of us worrying. We are perfectly safe. Yon and I can peg away and be content These can straggle after the mirage of fame who want it We might struggle, too. If we thought there was the slightest chance on earth, but we know there Isn't. It Is easy to give a thing up when you know you can't get it Thus wc arc left free to take the real blessings of life—home and happiness —and let the baubles go. 8omc men mortgage their souls for power and place only to find In the end that they have gathered Dead sea fralt They have lost peace, love, con tcntment and self respect for a bauble, tinsel thing. They have made name? Yes, and they have marred an eternity. What fools! To do good In the wwld, to help hu maulty onward, to make a little easier the path of the poor and the suffering, to bring comfort and happiness to those around us, to spread a little sunshine, to develop and make noble our own •ouls and those of as many more as we can rea^h-these things are lm> measurably more than fame or riches, for life la but a day in tbe years of existence, but a step in the long path through tbe eternities, and wf are building for tbe future. The Law of Unity. We are bound together by an Invisible bond. The suffering of one nioves all. No member of bumonlty can be wronged without Insensibly af- fecUng tbe rest We share one another's sorrow whether we will or not. The electric chain of sympathy binds every member of the race. Wc are not Independent and separate beings, but the law of unity and identity operates in us. Tbe man who lives for self alone breaks this divine law and brings suffering on himself and others. The new gospel—and it is tbe old gospel as well—la tbe gospel of servke, the living for othera. We are all one family linked by an Indlaaoluble tie. and we can only be truly happy In tbe happiness of our fellows. This is a divine and Immutable law, but It'bas taken tbe world slong and Weajy centuries to leara it^ In fact, it is not learned yet but we have nacbed a plane where we begin to apprehend ita truth. The Only Woman and myself have become boUders. Out of our Uttle crooked bouse we have already con- atrqeted fine mansions and still have plenty of dfeam stuff to build more. iitttt all, the things we own in our hearts are the tftings we really own.

They have too much sense. Don't keep your baby in White things so long if you only have one maid and the- washing must be counted. White baby things that are not absolutely fresh are—well, there's no word for them. Colored coats and boimets are to be had for as young a child as a year ahd a half. They are made very simply, and they look well. Shoes and. stockings come to match. And the sight of a little child all in brown or in blue is much prettier than one In mussy white, I can tell you. Leave the fancy things for the time when the child Is grown up and can appreciate them. MARY WORTHLEY. SOME NEW SANDWICHES. They Make Good Additions to Lunohes, Suppers and Tea.
