It is said that Shakespeare's works abound in tbe most direct and explicit references to the game of golf, several Df which hove been collected in Miss Wood's recent volnnie of "Quotation For Occasions." In "Much Ado About Nothing" is an unmistakable allusion to a characteristic St. Andrew's gesture in the words, "I know you by the waggling of your bead," while in "Titus Androuicus" is sucouutered the pertinent query, "What I subtlo bole is this?" in "Kicnard 111," again, one meets tho line, "Put in their bauds the bruising irons of wrath," and in "Henry VI" (part I) the statement "I'll call for clubs." Falstaff 's ruling passion was evident lygolf, for on his deathbed lie "babbled bf green fields," and there were certain ly liuks oil Prospero's island, else way the question" Why hath the queen sum moned me hither to this short grass'd green?"

Good health is one of them. We are quite apt to envy the possessor of crest wealth, but far more is to be envied the man or woman with robust health, unwavering courage and tho disposition to go through life with a song and a smile. The happiest people in th world are those who work and work cheerfully. Housewife.
