Golf and Fish Story.
Some time ago a northern golfer
drove a bull a fine, low, Fklmmlng
shot across a river. Just as the ball
was nearly over a salmon leaped at
the ball and caught It In its mouth.
Such was the pace of the ball that it
carried the salmon on to the river's
bank, where it was Immediately se
cured, with the ball tightly wedged In
Its teeth. Golf Illustrated.
The secret Is to be found not In the
criminal type of man, nor yet alto
gether In heredity, but In environ
ment. The place to make the en
vironment, which is to protect the
young man from many temptations

may not escape, is in the home. Rev.

What Is most striking In the pres

Too Busy to Love.
In England people are too busy to
