Father and Son.
Be more than his dad,
Be a chum to the lad;
Be a part of his life
Every hour of the day;
Find time to talk with him,
Find time to walk vrith him;
Share in his studies
And share in his play.
Take him to places.
To ball games and races;
Teach him the things
That you want him to know;
Don't live apart from him;
Be his best comarde,
He's needing you so!
Never neglect him, .
Though young, still respect him;
He.'ir his opinions
With patience and pride;
Show him his error,
But be not a terror,
Grim visaged and fearful,
When he's at your side.
Know what his thoughts are,
Know what his sports are,
Know all his playmates.
It's easy to learn to
Be such a father
That when troubles gather
You'll be the first one
For counsel he'll turn to.
You can inspire him
With courage and fire him
Hot with ambition
For deeds that are good;
He'll not betray you,
Nor illy repay you
If you have taught him
The things that you should.
Father and 30n '- V - r-..
Must in all things be one
Partners in trouble
And comrades in joy.
More than a dad
Was the best pal you had;
Be such a chum
As you knew to your boy.

WORDS CHANGED IN MEANING
Epithets Once Complimentary Have
Degenerated Into Insults, With
the Passing Centuries.
Words, like other things, change
with time, and there are epithets
once complimentary which have de
generated into instdts. If one of our
Anglo-Saxon forefathers had been
called a silly idiot he would not have
taken it amiss quite the reverse, in
fact, for in those days silly meant
blessed or happy, and idiot meant
nothing more than a private person.
Nor would he have taker offense had.1
you referred to him as a crafty
swindler, for these are both words
that have changed their meaning
in the oourse of centuries. Crafty
once implied not shiftiness but skill,
whilst a swindler was a man who was
good at driving a bargain. Other
words which, though now uncompli
mentary, were once quite the reverseV
are officious, which formerly meant
land, and conceited, which meant
full of ideas or originality. But the
Saxon warrior would have devised
a nornble deatn for vou bad you
to call his wife a lady I
This word has gone up in the scale,
whilst the others have one down. It
really means a kneader of dough, 02
a bakehouse maid.

CHOSE SERPENT AS SYMBOL
Early Physicians, Supposed to Be Di
vinely Directed, Evidently Had
Not Put Away Fetishism.
In ancient Greece there were
many legends about the gods curing
patients, and the physicians were
supposed to be divinely directed a?
to treatment, says the Detroit News.
Fetishism and symbolism prevailed,
and a serpent was chosen as a symbol
of life and health. The Egyptians
also used this symbol, and the He
brews, on the occasion when Mose
held up the serpent in the wilder
ness. In the recent war this symbol
was used to represent medicine in tht
After the teachings of Christ had
spread over the world the old godj
were replaced by Christian sainta
The Virgin and the martyrs were in
voked to cure disease. Some ordert
of monks practiced pharmacy and
medicine until a decree was issued bj
the church forbidding them to' uss
knive9. This left the surgery to the
barbers, hence the origin of the red
and white barber pole the white foi
bandages and red for blood.
ODD WAY TO MAIL MONEY
A $5 hill was received at the Bath
(Maine) post office, which wai
mailed in Boston as ordinary mail
with no covering whatever. The ad
dress, that of a youthful member of
Bath's foreign colony, was written
on one side of a piece of paper at
tached to the bill by means of a post
age stamp and a message was on the.
reverse side. The bill, however, did
not make the entire journey exposed
to the gaze of the postal clerks. Some
one in the -Boston office slipped it1
into an official envelope, addressee
to Postmaster Owen in Bath,, re
questing him to advise the recipient
as well as the sender of the money
as to the proper methods for send
ing cash by mail.
CALL FOR ARTHUR
On Baltimore streets recentlj
there has appeared an unusual jux
taposition of worldly things and
things of the spirit. It is a large
limousine, luxurious in appointment
and up-to-date of line. On the dark
enamel of one door appears this in
scription, in Old English gold let
tering about an inch and a half in
'Tor what shall it profit a man ii
he shall gain the whole world, and
lose his own soul ? Or what shall' 8
man give in exchange for his' soul!
St Mark 8:36-37'
On the other door is:
"For God so loved the world, thai
He gave His only begotter Son thai
whosoever believeth in Him should
not perish, hut have everlasting life

WELL, WAS HE?
Authors often receive curious let
ters about their books. In a collec
tion of such letters published in ths
New York Herald, one received by
Ernest Poole 13 perhaps the most
amusing. It reads:
"I have read a book of yours and
it has occurred to me that you might
be my uncle, Ern Poole. Uncle Ern
left home about ten years ago. He
said he meant to write for a living,
but we have never heard of him
syice till I read your book. Now if
you are my "Uncle Ern I want to tell
you what I think of the -way you left
my poor widow mother and have
not even written her since Dear
air if you are not Uncle Ern please
pardon this presumptuous letter
but if you axe, you're a coward and
sneak and a quitter for running
away like that. If you are not,
please excuse this."
