If with pleasure you are viewing any work a man is doing, .
If you like him or you love him, tell him now;
Don't withhold your approbation till the parson makes oration
As he lies yrtth snowy lilies o'er his brow; j
For, ho matter how ydu shout it", he won't-reaily'care about it, -
He won't know how many teardrops you have shed.
If you think some 'praise is due him, n6w'sthe time to-slip it to him,,
For he cannot read his tombstone when he's dead!

And it givesTyoii heart and spirit to the end;
If he earns your praise--bestow it; if ybu jike him, Jet him know itf
Let the words of true encouragement, be. said.
Do not wait till life is over and he's underneath- the clover,-
For he cannot read' his toihbstotie wheTie'srnead! ' " 'r

SIMPLE HOME REMEDY .
Simple remedies often prove effec

your eye try-tnis method. Turn tile
eye affected toward the nose as far
as ydu can. Pull s the eyelid down
as far as you can over the eye. Then
blow the opposite nostril hard. This
will frequently carry the offending
particle down through the eye duct
into the nose. DO NOT rub the eye
when there is something in it. That
merely inflames the eyeball without
effecting a remedy. If something
lodges In . the eyeball this" .simple
