Tho teachors had put themselves to la

of the soventy or moro pupils would re
ceive a present. Tho children gave
gifts to each other and the teachers
Cime in for a nice share also. Old
Santa Claus was good enough to favor
them with a visit in person to distri

And then a Christmas treo loaded
with them. I don't think we ever had
one like that. We had a tree, or part of
a tree, a b'anch, a limb perhaps. It, was
strewn of its leaves bowover, and did
not bear presents, but stood up in one
corner in a threatening attitu le and

SOMETIME, when all life's lessens hnvo boon learned,
Ajul sun and stars forovcinlore have set,
The things which our weak judgments hero have spurned,
The things o'er which w<> grieved with lushes wet,
Will Hash before us. out of life's dark ulgllt,
As stars shine most in deeper tints of blue;
And we shall see how all Clod's plans were right,
And how what seemed reproof was love most true.
And wo Khali see how, while we frown and sigh,
God's plan noes on as best for you and nie;
How, when we called, lie heeded not our cry,
Because bis wisdom to the end could see.
And even as wise parents disallow
Too much of sweet to craving babyhood,
So God, perhaps, Is keeping from us now
Life's sweetest things, because it seomctll good.
And if, sometimes, commingled with life's wine,
Wo find the wormwood, and rebel and shrink,
Bo sure a wiser hand than yours or mine
Pours out this potion for our lips to drink,
And if some friend we love is lying low,
Where human kisses cannot reach his face,
O, do not blame the loving Father so,
Hut wear your sorrow with obedient grace!
And you shall shortly know that lengthened breath
Is not the sweetest gift God sends his friend.
And that, sometimes, the sable pall of death
Conceals the fairest boon his love can send.
If we could push ajar the gates of life,
And stand within and all God's workings sec,
We could Interpret all this doubt and strife,
And for each mystery could find n key I
But not today. Then be content, poor heart!
God's plans like lilies pure and white unfold.
Wo must not tear the close-shut leaves npart,
Time will reveal the calyxes of gold
And if, through patient toll, we reach Iho land
Where tired feet, with sandals loose, may rest,
When we shall clearly see and understand,
I think that we will say "God knew the best!"
Nature's Gift from the Sunny South
Shortens your.food.- Athens w life
WAS ONCE ASKED:
"Is life worth living?" He replied: "It
depends upon the liver." Chauncey was
fartially right, but he might have added
hat it depended quite as much upon the
stomach and the manner in which it did
its work. The moment you put lard
cooked food in your stomach you are
sending out a pressing invitation for dys
pepsia to call upon you. This may sound
exaggerated, but let us reason it out.
Lard is made from hog fate. The hog isn't the most cleanly animal
in tho world, and why r.hould lard be any more digestible than fat
pork? It isn't. You aro simply taking chances when you use lard in
cooking; if it doesn't harm you, you're lucky.
The best shortening In the universe is Cottolene. It Is made from
refined vegetable oil and choice beef suet. There's no ingredient about
it but what is pure, wholesome and digestible. No other shortening
will do the work of Cottolene. You must either use Cottolene or an
inferior product Which are you going to do?
Guard against substitutes. Cottolene comes only In sealed tin
pails (three sizes) with a red label and band. In the center of the
label Is our trade mark?a steer's head in cotton plant wreath. Cot
tolene is not open to contamination as is bulk lard; the quality is
always uniform and guaranteed.
Ask your grocer for a pail of Cottolene and start yourself on tho
right road to successful cookery.
USE ft LESS. Cottolene being richer than either lard or cooking
butter, one-third less is required,
