A I orcn ot Une's uwn.
As Plutarch tells us, "It Is well to
go for a light to onother man's fire,
but not to tarry by it, Instead light
ing a torch of one's own." A torch of
one's own 1 That Is a possession
worth having, whether It be u flaming
beacon on the hilltop or a tiny taper in
the window. We cannot tell how far
a little candle throws Its beams, nor
who Is laying his course by Its flicker
ing light. The most that we can do
and it is also the least that we
should do is to tend the flame care
fully and to keep It steady. Brander
Bestow Praise Generously.
Let us not be niggardly with n word
of praise or encouragement ns far as
our own dear ones are concerned. The
world will offer them neither in fact,
it cares absolutely nothing about them.
Therefore, If we hope to bring out
what Is worth while In our children, or
If we would make them truly happy,
we must become their stanch allies.
Otherwise, we are playing a losing
game and can only look for defeat.
Writing Without Punctuation.
Chinese do not need punctuation or
any other mark. It might be doubtful
from the foreign point of view wheth
er a language is possible that has done
away with punctuation. The fact Is,
however, that punctuation is no longer
necessary for Chinese. The charac
ters, besides performing a function of
their own, take over that also' of the
period, comma, hyphen, Interrogation,

"JUDGE" MAYO AGAIN.
"Ex-Judge Mayo of Chicago," who
claimed to bo here from Gary, Ind.,
selling lots, raised $1,000 at Shtloh
Baptist church on a recent Monday
evening, it is said. On the following
afternoon he appeared at tho church
and was paid that amount for lots.
The next day, Wednesday, in the af
ternoon, when he appeared again at
tho church, as requested, he was ar
rested and released on a $2,000 ball
bond furnished from Chicago, after
being compelled by federal authori
ties to deposit $750 ot tho $1,000 in a
local bank, it is said. This amount
was to bo returned to tho would-be
lot buyers, Wednesday of this week,
so wo wer informed by an officer of
the church. The $250 balance, it
seems, is to be lost. The "sufferers"
also paid an attorney $50, which
makes their total loss $300. Detroit
