Foolish question! Yet some people net as if a medicine
could take the place of a doctor! The bct medicine in
the world cannot do this. Have a family doctor, consult
him frequently, trust him fully. If we did not believe
doctors endorsed Aycr's Cherry' Pectoral for coughs and
rnlds. we would not offer it to you. Ask your doctor.

The Curtain Falls.
Over tho sorrow nnd over tho bliss,
Over tho teardrop, over tho kiss,
Over the crimes that blotted nnd
Over tho wound of the angry word.
Over tho deeds, ill weakness done,
Over tho battles lost nnd won,
Now nt the end of tho flying yenr.
onr that tomorrow will not bo here.
Over our freedom, over thnlls,
In the dark nnd midnight tho curtain
Over our gain nnd over our loss.
Over our crown nnd over our crose.
Over tho fret of our discontent.
Over the Ills that wo never meant.
Over tho scars of our self-denial,
Over tho strength that conquered trial
.Now in the end or tho flying year.
Year that tomorrow will not bo here.
Quietly final, tho prompter calls:
Over it swiftly tho curtain falls.
Over tho crowds nnd the solitudes.
Over our shifting, hurrying moods.
Over tho hearths whero bright flame
Over the cribs whero tho babies
Over tho. clamor, over tho strife.
Over tho'pagenntry of life.
Now In tho end of the -flying year.
Year that tomorrow will not be here.
Bwlftly nnd suroly, from starry walls.
Silently downwnrd tho curtain falls
A Happy New Year.
Delight nnd pathos nro Inextricably
mingled with the thought of NVw
Year's day. It Is only a convention
al point of time- .any other would do
as well. Every day closes an old
year nnd begins n new one, but for
nil that we ennnot help feeling that
tins day, winch Is agreed upon
throughout Christendom for the be
ginning of Uio now year. Is some
how nnlquc. Tho pathos comes from
the review of the past, and from the
sense that another notch has born
cut for us on tho stick of time. The
delight arises from tho anticipation
ol the new and better experiences of
the year to come. What Interest any
rational person could bavu in having
his forttino told Is a mystery. Ths
zest nnd charm of life consist largely
In the fact that each day Is Ilk.- a
new pace In the story. If you wish
to enjoy your book you do not, when
It Is half read, turn to Uio closing
chapter to learn bow It turns out.
You do not thank anyono for telling
you tho plot. It Is so with life
There Is Infinite satisfaction in each
day's contribution to tho record
You do not want to anticipate It
It would bo a curse If anyono could
tell you just what tho year would
btlng. It Is Just as reasonable to
supposo that tho year will bo happy
as sad. Who can tell? Who can
control that? Are wo not In the
hands of God? That Is tho reason
for a happy New Year's day.
A Glance Backward.
As you turn tho corner Into anew
year, look back a minute over tho
road you have been traveling tho
pnst year. It seemed a long wny
when you started out, but It brut
been traversed at last. See tho lino
of that road ever winding on. whllo
twisting hero and thero. Do you ro-
member that boggy place Into which
you strayed? How you promised
yourself In your better moments. "I
will turn over a new leaf" Have
you been true to yourself? If not,
onco more before you step out into
the puro New Year, renew your
promises to your better natures. Do
not stray, but linger near the pleas
ant outlooks, keep ncni the bits of
hlg'i ground where you breathe purer
air und can see ufur off Heavens
high hills of blue, make the motive
pure work for the object Ite dill
gent In seeking better wnys and In
twilve more short months, take an
other retrospective glance nnd see
how- much pleased you will be with
yourslf, how much more of goodness
nnd genuine worth this world will
seem to possess.
What to Forget.
If you would Increase your bappl
ucss and prolong your life, forget
your neighbor's faults. Forget alt
the slander you bavu heard. Forget
tho temptations. Forget tho fault
finding, and give a little thought to
tho cause which provoked It. Forget
tho peculiarities or your frionds, and
only remember the good points which
mnko you fond of them. Forget all
personal quarrels or histories you
may havo heard by accident, and
which, If repeated, would seem a
thousand times worso than they are
Dlot out as far as posslblo all tho
disagreeables of life; they wlllcomo
but will only grow larger when you
remember them and the constant
thought of the' acts of meanness, or.
worse still, malice, will only tend to
mako you more familiar with tliein.
Obliterate everything disagreeable
from yesterday, start out with a clean
sheet today, and wrlto upon It for
sweet harmony's sako only those
things which aru lovely ami lovenblo.
How tlmo files! Here wo aro a
