are so great that only by the constant cooperation of all employees of all branches of the Indian Service can they be overcome The purpose of this letter is to make so clear and definite the duties and limitations of employees of this Service, that in the future tbere be no missunderstanding and no possible ground for any to plead ignorance of the law or of the regulations as an excuse for the viola tion thereof.

H.ABBOT, 10—MWM—21 Acting Commissioner. Speech. By Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Talk Happiness. The world is sad enough "Without your woes. No path wholly rough. Look for the places that are smooth and clear, And talk of them to rest the weary ear Of earth, so hurt by one's continuous strain Of human discontent and grief and pain. Talk Faith. The world is better off without Your uttered ignorance and mobid doubt. If you have faith in God, or man, or self, Say so- if not, push back upon the shelf, Of silence all your thoughts till Faith shall come, No one will grieve because your lips are dumb. Talk Health. The dreary never-ending tale Of mortal maladies is worn and stale. You cannot charm, or interest, or please By harping on that minor chord, disease, Say you are well, 01 all is well with you And God shall hear your words and make them true 16.
