No one see satisfied. One man Is
struggling to getjustice, and another
is flying from it. One man is saving
up to buy a house and another is trying
hard to sell his dwelling for less than it
cost to get rid of it. One man is spend
ing all the money he can earn in taking
a girl to a theatre or show and sending
her valuable presents in hopes that he
may eventually make her his wife and
his neighbor is spending all the gold he
has saved trying to get a divorce. One
man keeps a pistol to protect himself
against burglars, while his neighbor
doesn't keep one for fear of shooting
himself or some member of the family.
One man pays for his paper in advance
because he can read it with a greater
relish, while another takes it four or five
years without paying a cent Yor it, and
enjoys it hugely all the while. Surely a
queer old world this is.

among you, so that they may go away

Always cheer on the men who go in

Don't kick at any proposed improve
ment because it is not at your door, or
fear your taxes will be raised fifty cents.
