The Indians of South Dakota have

Among these are the white man's di-

as a means of culture and uplift.

SUCCESS AND FAILURE.
Both man and animal are in a cease-
less fight for successful existence.
The law of the survival of the fittest
does its work. With tooth and talon
the animals selfishly battle for the mas-
tery.
Man also fights his fellows, not with
teeth and claws, but with cunning and
foresight and skill. Wit takes the
place of the club of the stone age.
And in the arena of competition men
face one another as bravely as did the
gladiators of Rome and Corinth. But-
There is this difference:
Among men the fight must be fair.
If in his climbing up the man uses foul
means to pull his fellow down. he is
dishonored. If he employs deceit or
force, he descends to the brute.
Real success today depends on HOW
a man WINS It-and USES IL
If anxious to win a man betrays a
trust or extorts an undue advantage
or grabs more than he earns or need-
lessly wounds his rival, that is not
"the square deal."
It was not always so.
It is coming to be so.
And. on the other hand, the man
who wins an honored place among the
successful of today must do so by
helping his fellows. There is only one
way by which one can wring from the
world of today Its admiration and its
gratitude, and that is by the way of
SERVING the world. Only he who
serves his generation is respected and
honored by his generation.
Is not that Just and fine?
The people want to know HOW the
man comes up. If he gets up by low
trickery or by a betrayal of the com-
mon Interest, he cannot win the recog-
nition of the people.
But you say-
*-*othi..nir _nevw-j> IMP _ner- -


would get another In the same man-
ner.
The smiles of Eagle Boy plainly indi-
cated that he thought the whole proce-
dure a lot of good fun.
Formerly when an Indian grew tired
of his squaw he sold her to some one
else for a pony or a blanket or a bag
of flour. Now he Is civilized. He con-
suits a divorce lawyer-and sells her
just the same.
The marriage custom Is also changed.
The buck selects his wife according to
tribal precedent, but Immediately starts
with her for the nearest justice of the
peace or missionary and gets the sane-
tion of the law. Marriage or divorce.
It is all the same to the discriminating
aborigine.
Lo, the poor Indian, is up to date.
The tribes, It Is said, point with pride
to young braves who have had four or
five wives and been freed from them
by law.
And why not?
The smart set of the east find the
Dakota divorce statutes convenient to
them and travel long distances to avail
themselves. The Dakota Indian is for-
tunate In having the courts close at
hand. And-
Is not "incompatibility" as trying in
a tepee as in a brownstone front on
Fifth avenue?
If the white man makes a mockery
of marriage, what can he expect from
a half tame savage?

A MARSiAL.S BATO
Garfield said be felt like taking Off
his hat to every poor newsboy he met
because of the possibilities under his
ragged Jacket.
And Napoleon said there was a mar-
shal's baton in the knapsack of every
private soldier in his armies.
Whether Napoleon believed what he
said or was speaking for a purpose we
may not know, but a recent writer
tells of two potentially great men who
did carry knapeacks In the empower's
army.
One of these veterans was named
Pasteur, who, after the battle of Wa-
terloo, returned to his trade as a tan-
ner. Denied the advantages of an edu-
cation, he determined that his so
should have his chance. He worked
far into the night In order to send the
boy to school.
That son was Louis Pasteur, the
greatest chemist and physiologist of
modern times.
Louis Pasteur made some of the
greatest discoveries of the nineteenth
century. He also laid the foundation
for modern antiseptic surgery, thus
conferring a boon on suffering human-
ity for all time.
The veteran Pasteur had more than
a marshal's baton in his knapack.
There was another:
Napoleon died In a home on the
island of St Helena that was Infested
with rats. To the everlasting shame
of the allies, be it said, they stooped
to make his last days miserable. It
was the business of an Irish soldier
named Sullivan to scare away the rats
while the "Little Corporal" lay on his
deathbed.
That Irish soldier was the grandfa-
ther of Sir Arthur Sullivan, whose
music has gladdened more hearts than
Napoleon desolated.
If Sullivan had written nothing but
"The Lost Chord," he would have
soothed more souls of men than Napo-
leon sent to their last account
Napoleon strode the world like a
Colossus. At the age of twenty-ax he
stopped the growl of all Europe with
his whiplash, but-
In Napoleon's army were men poten-
tially greater than he.
Despise not the day cf small things.
Look down upon no man.
The possibilities of every human
soul are beyond the farthest dream of
fancy.

NIGHT ON BALD MOUNTAIN

On a lonely night Alex. Benton, of
Fort Edward. N. Y.. climbed Bald
mountain to the home of a neighbor,
tortured by asthma, bent on curing
him with Dr. King's New Discovery,
that had cured himself of asthma.
This wonderful medicine soon reliev-
ed and quickly cured his neighbor.
Later It cured his son's wife of a se-
vere lung trouble. Millions believe its
the greatest throat and lung cure on
earth. Coughs, colds, croup, hem-
orn hags and sore lungs are surely i
curci'l by it. Best for hay fever, grip
anml whooping cough. .5,,. and $1.
Trial battle free. Guaranteed by all
il'rug' ists.

This i- tihe most dangerous time of
the year to catch cold. and it is the
hardest time to cure it. If you should
take a cold, a few loses of Kennedy's.
Laxative Cough Syrup will act very
promptly. Its laxative principle cures
tliu cold by driving it from the sys-j
tem by a gentle but natural action of
the -hovwels. Children especially like
Kennedy's Iaxative Cough Syrup, as
it tastes so good, nearly like maple!
sugar. It is sold by the Anti-Monopoly
Drugstore.

Lutie Mote Hansborough of Tampa,
who is one of Ocala's moat popular
visiting girls.
Mrs. Sistrunk had planned to have
an all-day picnic at Scott Springs, one
of the most picturesque spots around
Ocala. but the inclement weather
turned a merry day in the woods
,lmong spring flowers into a- jolly
house party. Tables were placed on
-the broad verandas, which looked
very woodsy with the many pot plants,
and whist and bridge were deeply en-
joyed until the hostess announced
that dinner would be served.
Pell mell the picnickers rushed
forth to the dining room where a most
bounteous and delicious picnic dinner
was served in picnic style. Chicken
pillau, sweet potato balls, deviled eggs.
sandwiches, pickles, olives and fruit
punch were relished with appetites
that always go with a picnic. Then ice
cream, cake and fruits with stuffed
dates were passed to the tune of
waltzes and two-steps played on the
graphophone.
After dinner booklets with pen and
ink Billy 'Possums sketched on them,
work of the clever hostess, were given
to each with Instructions to write a
'possum story. The peals of laughter.
while these stories were being read.
showed marked witticisms and great
literature talents on the part of the
authoresses. Miss Hansborough prov-
ed. in black and white, to be the clev-
erest 'Possum writer and for her tal-
ent was given a bunch of suckers-all-
da -with ribbon around their necks.
Assisting the hostetA were Miss An-
nie Atkinson. Mrk. W. H. Hocker. Mrs.
E. H. Mote. Mis. Louis Duval. Mrs. B.
.W. Mlmms. Mrsa.. L. Carney and
Mrs. E. T. Helvenston. Though the
weather was stormy everybody had a
jolly time and each one voted Mrs.
Sistrunk an ideal entertainer.

A PLEASANT OCCASION
Last evening twelve or fifteen mem-
bers of the Young People's Missionary
Society of the Methodist church met
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. W.

resented by different members, dress-
ed In costume.
Last evening those assembled to
discuss and arrange for this service,
after completing their labors, indulged
in music, games and a candy-making.
An hour and a half was pleasantly
spent with the charming hostess, and
each guest went home well pleased
with the evening's work and pleasure.

GASOLENE TANK EXPLODES
The quiet of FPort King avenue was
ruthlessly shaken yesterday afternoon
by the explosion of a gasolene boiler
in the shoe shop of D. W. Goodwin.
In the Montezuma hotel block. Just
how it happened it still a mystery and
the more so because no one was In-
jured in the explosion, which wrecked
the Champion Shoe Machine, sent
fragments of casting In every, direc-
tion, one piece, embedding itself in a
door and another pice as big as a
man's hand whistled past the head of
R. S. Mitchell, who was paying Good-
win a business visit at the time and
had just remarked to the proprietor
that the gas flame under the boiler
were burning with unusual brilliance
and the words were scarcely out of his
mouth when. the rumbling noise like
that of an immense quarry blast had
expended its power. The machine,
wbhie not a total wreck, is so dis-
mantled that it probably will have to'
he sent to the factory at St. Louis to
he repaired. The machine when new"
cost $320. The total damage was
fully $200. but Goodwin deems himself
and those in the shop as fortunate in
not being injured.

The demand for that wonderful
stomach, liver and kidney cure, Dr.

worthy was no rspecter at precedent,
and at present It mattered not a rap
to him whether he was guilty of an
anticlimax or not. e only knew that
he was utterly serable and that the
fine view he had of AUlia's back-
turned to him with an obviousness not
to be gainsaid-was in nowise encour-
aging.
He sat in the hammock, his face a

At length be looked down at the dog.
A whimsiceal emile curved his lips, and
be looked grimly toward Alicia, who
to all intents was interested in the
distant landscape.
"Rajah, old boy," be aid, addressing
the dog, "it sbtrke me that women

They secuse a chap of all sorts of
things, and when be offers to explain
they fly Into a Amee dudgeon and turn
their backs Oa him. They give him
the maximum sentence without a

He glanced at the girl. She was
quite unmoved. The landscape was
apparently quite as absorbing as ever.
The back was certainly no whit less
ucompromising.
"I'e been Ill treated, old man," Ken-
worthy went on. "I wanted to ex-
plain It all to her, but she wouldn't
listen."
At that moment a Persian kitten
came stalking across the lawn, paused
Irresolutely beneath the trees and then
Jumped Into Aiela's lap.
"Teddy, you dear." cried the girl.
stroking the kitten's white coat, "you
knew I wanted to tell you something
about men, didn't young'
Kenworthy pricked up his ears.
"Teddy," she went on confidentially,
"all men are horrid-selfish and hor-
rid. You can't trust any of them."
Kenworthy smiled at the dog.
"Between you and. me, Rajah," said
be, "I think the sum and substance of
the whole matter is jealousy."
"Imagine my being jealous, Teddy,"
said the girl scornfully. "Who on
earth would I be jealous of?",
"I imagine Ws the Bronson girl,
lajah." said Kenworthy.
"The Bronson girl goes automobil-
ang quite frequently of late," said the
girl to the kitten. "And she's such a
horrid little flirt! She boasted when
she came here she'd have a spin In
every ear in town. I did think. Ted-

"By Jove, It Is jealousy!" said Ken-
worthy, forgetting t address his re-
marks to the dog.
"Didn't I tell you men were horrid,
Teddy' said Alicia, with much con-
Kenworthy chuckled softly.
"Do yoa suppose she really cares if
I did take the Bromon gir for a spin,

"He was to come here at 4 yester-

was half past 5 before he came. I'm
glad he found such congenial compa-

"ee here, Rajah," said Kenworthy,
"the explanation she refused to listen
to I shall tell to you."
"Aren't men clever at explaining,

"You see," Kenworthy went on, pat-
