A Curious Effusion of

TEXT OF THE IMtAYER IN FULL
Mrs. K. T. Woosley, of Kentucky,
has received word from the Agnos
tic Association of Belgium and
France that they have adopted her
"Now Lord's Prayer," which she de
livered at the recent International
Liberal League convention In Brus
sels, where she was the only dele
gate from America and the only wo
man delegate to the convention.
The prayer is Interrogative In form
an decidely non-commltal In
thought In places It alms to give
the Creator a few statistics quite in
the manner of the preacher who
prayed, "Oh Lord, Thou knowest ot
tho Sunday papers."
The New Lord's Prayer Is as fol
lows: "Oh, thou eternal, infinite mut
ter, force, mind or whatever thou
art, that men call God.
"If thou aro just and loving and
lncllneth to peace, If thou dellghteth
in tho happiness and progress of thy
children, why have tho religions
which seek to honor thee persecuted
different creeds and soaked tho
earth with each other's blood?
"Why have they Inflicted ostra
cism, ruin or death upon all teach
ers of truth coming Into their pow
"Why have they presented an un
broken phalanx agalriBt every phase
of social progress?
"Why have they championed the
cause of despotism and denounced
that of liberty?
"Why have they degraded and en

"Oh, God, wo'besccch thee to so
Influence men that the benefactors
of tho race will be glorified and not
cruciiled that reason, unfearlng,
may walk the earth, that temples of
worship will welcome honest and in
telligent thought, that character may
count far more than belief, that tho
human palm will reject the sword
for the laurel branch of peace, that
love may be tho golden key unlock
ing all tho gates of Joy, that woman
will be ltborated, each man receive
what he earns, and all como to know

O LOOK FORWARD. O
Do not tell your troubles this year,
because tho fewer people who know
of the things that have handicapped
you, tho better it Is for you. You
will then bo spared the Influence of
tho unfortunate suggestions which
your hard luck stories make upon
other people's minds.
Then, again, every time you re
peat the story of your misfortunes,
your troubles, your trials, your fail
ures, you etch the dark picture a lit
tle deeper In your own mind; make
a little more real to yourself what
you ought to erase forever. What
cannot help us, what can only hin
der should bo Jforeotten, dlsoardpd
once for all. '
Many people hang on to their old
troubles; they cling to their old sor
rows and misfortunes, their fail
ures, their past sufferings, until they
become a terrible drag, a cloi;, a
fearful handicap to their progress.
The only thing to do with a bad
piece of work, with an unfortunate
mistake, with a sad experience, is to
let It go, wipe it out, get rid of it
forever. Never allow tho hideous
Imago to como Into your presence
again or mar your happiness or sap

A SETTLEMENT WITH
THE SWEDISH FARMER
Up in Minnesota Mr. Olsen had a
cow killed by a railroad train. In
due season the claim agent for the
railroad called. "Wo understand, of
courso, that tho deceased was a very
docllo and valuable animal," said
the claim agent in his most persua
sive, calm, clalm-agontly manner,
"and we sympathize with you and
your family In your loss. But, Mr.
Olsen, you must romember this
