The Horse Chestnut.
Why the horse chestnut is so called
is a debatable point, but at least one
possible explanation of the name may
be found in a peculiar characteristic
of the tree. If, when it is mature, a
leaf be broken off cleanly at the point
where its stem joins the branch, it will
be discovered that the base of the
stem' is the exact shape of a horse's
hoof, and If one looks further one will
see plainly marked upon tlm "hoof"
the nail marks of the horse's shoe. The
similitude of hoof and nails is at least
remarkable. It might be supposed, In
reference to the name of this tree, that
horses were fond of the fruit, but one
believes tha t this is not the case,
nor does any other creature, except
perhaps the rat or mouse, attempt to
eat this natural and abundant product

One of the worst things about a
minstrel show is that for several days
after it appears in a town some of a
man's friends will insist on retelling
to him all of the jokes they can induce
him to stand still and listen to.
Another disadvantage of a minstrel
show is that it gives a man no chance
to go out between the acts. But then,
in Ocala, there is no longer any reason
for going out between the acts.

The year is drawing to a close, dear

To sit and weep, because it's record
So little done, nor will we question
We failed so many times to be and do

How we may better serve in future
Perhaps we've walked too much alone,
And trusted to ourselves from day to

from His own,
And thus we sometimes stumbled on

This scrap of conversation, which I
am free to admit was not concentrated
wisdom, occurred at the glye counter
of Jones', where I met Miss Chamber Chamber-lln.
lln. Chamber-lln. The next time I saw her was at
Mrs. Winters salon, so called from the
brilliant dialogues that take place
there. .Betty was tied to Ashurst. He
was a graduate of a scientific school
and could drown her la a pool of ideas
seven feet deep. I was sandwicbad
between two girls directly behind them.
We conversed with one another, but
had our ears opeii for what Ashurst
and Betty were saying One of the
girls beside me was Ida Perkins Tfcf
only remark that could be considered
to refer to the couple In front of m
was made by Ida. It was this:
"Why do you bright men get stuck
In the honey of stupid girls T
"Leave out the 'you,' and I will an
swer the question," I replied.
But she wouldn't, and I confess I
would not have been pleased If she
had.' -; v vJ,; ..-
Betty made a lodgment with Ash
urst at that salon, and this Is the way
she did It
"I have heard, Mr. Ashurst," she wai
saying, "that you are not one of the
kind to feel certain of anything and
that you never force your opinions on
any one." ''r'r' V; '-r.
' "Confound those persons who know
everything!" grunted Ashurst.
"So say I -that is, I mean persons
who don't know as much as other per persons
sons persons who know a great deal, but are
not constantly trying to show It off."
This was a trifle mixed, but Ashurst
didn't seem to mind it
"Some of the women here make me
laugh." Betty went on, 'They think
they're quite wke. Don't they tire you.
Mr. Ashurst?" .
"I don't know t some of them do."
"I heard one of them Just now talk
Ing about the b!g European war. She
said the allies had tlfe best generals.
only they had been short of ammuni
tlon." c "' i
"Which allies?" -
"Why, I suppose she meant Is there
more than one ally?"
I saw Ida Perkins and Pslle Town
send Belle was the other side of the
sandwich that had me for a middle middle-look
look middle-look at each other. Fortunately for
Betty a lady passed her, bidding her
good evening and making a remark
about the weather. 'So Bet was not
obliged to go any further Into the mili military

do so. She had become Inadvertently
drawn Into It by attempting to hold up
one of her rivals in 1 an unfavorable
"Are you fond of, motoring, Mr.
Ashurst?" was her next remark- "I
don't suppose you are. At least so
busy a man as you is not likely to have
time to enjoy himself."
Ashurst was the scientific adviser of
a gigantic manufacturing corporation
He looked relieved that Betty should
have spared him the trouble of an

him. Bet has beautiful eyes and
knows that they serve her a better

"The reason why I asked you If yot

"I should be very happy," was the
reply. j;.. -'.
"Don't you think an Ice would coo!

They arose and went elsewhere. Bet
had caught sight of Ida in rather too

a new product of ours. We want you
to consider our Old Fashion Corn

upon it as a mere commonplace staple. But

Old Fashion Corn Meal is made in accordance with the best
thought on the subject. We kiln dry the grain, thoroughly clean and
sterilize it, before it is milled. The corn is not degerminated. The
meal is not bolted. There is a goodly portion of the bran in the
meal not too much, to make it tough and indigestible but just
enough to get the wholesomeness of the mineral properties. Our pro product,
duct, product, therefore, retains the greatest proportion of the sweetness, rich richness
ness richness and nutritive properties of the grain.
As it is most important that meal of this type be : fresh, we make
it possible for you to get Old Fashion Corn Meal shortly after it is
milled. Your grocer can get it in small quantities, as frequently as
necessary, and you, therefore, can get a product that has not been
kept in storage for a long period. If you get a sack of Old Fashion
Corn Meal that is not fresh, or is not satisfactory in every respect, re-'
turn it to your grocer. He will give you a sack of fresh meal, or your
money back, just as you wish. Your grocer is authorized to return
unsatisfactory packages to us, and we will protect him in turn.
Old Fashion Corn Meal is packed in 12-pound Saxolin Paper Lined
Sacks. These sacks protect you against dirt, dust, odors, gases, mois moisture

Fashion Corn Meal. The recipes in the package are just a few of the
many. Watch for new ones from time to time.
Ask your grocer for our meal. Tell him you want it in the 12
pound Saxolin Sanitary Sack. Look for our name on the package.
If your grocer does not happen to have Old Fashion Corn Meal
when you call for it, ask him to gei a sack for you. All good grocers
