Tlio lUglit Kind of Hcauty, To the Editor: Miss Hattie Stevens and Mr. Charles Larniboo, son of ex- Governor Larraboo, spent Sunday with Miss Bertha Carey at her homo in the country. When questioned in regard to the appearance of hor guest, whom the Courier declares "far from handsome," Miss Carey replied that when Christ spoke of the "houso not made with hands" she didn't suppose ho was thinking entirely about the style of its architecture; that soul has a beauty of its own that exceeds all material sense of loveliness, and of this kind of beauty the ex-governor and his son have their full share. Mr. Larrabee can discern more boauty in humanity with his one eye than some people can with two. Algona'a Great Guesser. The Huraboldt Blade quotes Bro. Hindi on as follows: We would like to hear from every county that has good congressional timber. Lot the best man bo brought forth. Let him be a man who understands and sympathizes with the quiddative purpose and animus of the great democratic party. Its comment is: The editor of the Courier is known in his town as "the ffuesser" because when he doesn't know what ho is talking about he just guesses at it. He has to exercise this faculty of guessing frequently on the big words he picks up and uses. He is trying to train his readers in this same art of guessing—trying to make out what he moans by the uso he makes of these big and obsolete words. In the present case be evidently just opened the dictionary and bis eye fell upon the word "quiddtitive" aud he was happy. * /I ^ g'j'j-ji&tAH'* pi* ~9 v*r liucklen'N Arnica Salve.
