"When a question is up' says

We imagine that these few
Words describe Wilson's charac

isn't his plan a pretty good one
for all of us who haven't such a
big thing as the presidency star

to decide our little personal prop
ositions on impulse and without
analysis of facts and conditions.
It means to htnik before we act.
But most of us pass upon the
small details, which really go to
make up life, without considera
tion of circumstances or results.
A fellow, maybe a person whom
we dearly love, says something
that we do not like and we at
once try to give him worse than
he sent. A business associate
seems to take some advantage of
us and we resolve to "lay for him"
ever after. Things go wrong in
our house, and instead of trying
to set them right, we storm and
cuss. Nothing is much truer than
the saying that most of our trou

MILK FOR BABY.
The "dangerous age" for milk"
is the time just before it gets sour
enough to betray itself to the
taste. Milk may thus be palatable
and harmless to an adult and very'
dangerous to an infant.
So see to it that the milk you.
use for your baby is fresh, not
more than a day old at least. Get
certified milk if you can and can
afford it. Otherwise; get the best
pasteurized milk you can find.
Especial care should be taken in
this matter from this time on
throughout the summer.
