A small boy who had recently passed
his fifth birthday was riding in a sub

were asked the customary question,
"How old is the boy?" After being
told the correct age, which did not re

to the next person.
The boy sat quite still, as if ponder
ing over some question, and then, con
cluding that full information bad not
boon given, called loudly to the con
ductor, thea at the other end of the
car, "And mother's thirty-onel"-Hu

Card of Thanks.
To the frieods who came to us ih
our hour of sorrow and so nobly and
unselfishly contributed all that hu
man kindness could suggest to help
and onnmfort we return our moot
heartfelt thanks, and although such
devoted and sympathetic friendship
cannot remove the sal memories that
linger around our vacant chair, it
brings into view the brightest side of
humanity and throws the pure light
of an unselfish friendship into a
darkened borne. May the day be tar,
far distant when those friends who
gathered around us will need similar
attention, but when they come, as
come they must to one and all, naay
lie "who tempers the wind to the
shorn lamb" protect them from all
harm, long shield them from the sor
row, sickness and death incident to
humanity, and may they be sustained
ed and comforted by friends as noble,
generous and devoted, who shall
mote to them the, same full
measure of generous aid and tender
sympasthy they brought to our home
when death was an inmate there.
