HE I. K. L. PLAYERS.
Sustained Their Excellent and Envi
There was nothing the matter with
the L1L Players, the famous dra
matic club of Minneapolis, in pre
senting, "Facing the Music," under
the auspices of the Willing Workers
of St. James A. M. E. church at the
"Church Club," St. Paul, last Wednes
day evening but there was some
thing the matter with the people of
St. Paul that they did not pack the
house to see and hear those talented
young people and give them the en
couragement of their presence. It is
a burning shame that the public so
often shows a deplorable lack of ap-
ent organizations present from time
to time. Thus dwarfing their ambi
tion, and discouraging them in their
laudable undertakings to "do some
thing" and causing them to say with
in themselves: "What's the use!"
The audience which greeted the Ex

with them and enthusiastic in its ap-

HOW TO STAVE OFF OLD AGE.
By E. W. Gilies.
Look up, rather than down.
Look without, rather than within.
Look ahead, rather than back
Maintain an interest in others,
rather than bestowing all your in
terest on yourself.
Keep going in the work of life,
rather than laying down on the job.
Keep on accomplishing things, ra
ther than giving up effort.
Make the best bluff you can at be
ing cheerful, rather than being sour.
Keep smiling, rather than frowning.
Keep on good terms with the
weather, and other things.
These are some of the things that
will help to stave off old age.

Church, preached a splendid sermon
