Dear Mrs. Thompson: We are two

JvUe us in the following ques-tions.

t LIGHT EYES AND DIMPLES.
(1) To be a Christian m-ans that
iyou believe in Christ's teaching and
VT your level be?t to be as good and
as kind as He was. Different churches
nave different trimmings to this, but
that is the foundation. Some Chris
tians believe it is very wrong to go to
theatres and on automobile rides Sun
day. Others think it is no harm.
. When people work very hard all week
and have no time for recreation on any
' day but Sunday, I do not think the
' Lord will hold it against them if they
.enjoy themselves in a perfectly re
spectable way on the Sabbath.
.(2) I do not think these books will
harm you. my dears. When I was your
age I enjoyed Walter Scott s novels
and Charles Dicken's stories very
much. (3) He is unmannerly. Just
don't notice the wink. M) By being
lovable, little girls; that mans that
you will be considerate of other's feel
ings and try to make others happy.

THE SPAN OF LIFE. jj
BY WILL H. DIXON.
A little life, a little strife,
' A little work and play;
A few brief years, of smiles and tears.
And then we go away.
Enjoy life's wine, where roses twine.
The music and the song;
Life's merry play Is but a day,
Life's span it is not long. ,
A HtUe while on earth to smile.
Am ids'. 1he Joys and tears,
We slag our song a'nd pass along,
Adown the sunny years.
So laugh and smile, with Joy the while.
No thought of wealth or power;
Sweet mirth's the thing, let laughter
Soon comes the parting hour.
A little grace to light the place,
A few brief smiles and tears;
Then hushed our song, amid earth's
Alas, the fleeting years!
Life'a sands run slow, they whisper
As now death's angel calls, " '
To end the play, life's little day,
And then the curtain falls.
