The Need of Courage.
Courage In Its most practical form
is not the daring that takes great
risks, but the patience that endures
little trials without complaint, the
hopefulness which Is always looking
for the bright side, the pluck which
works on faithfully, even though It
does not see the result of Its labors.

uneventful that we do not need cour

Dr. Josiah Oldfield of London, knowp

writer, has published a prescription foi

According to him, it is not a ques

which includes dandelion leaves, fowls'
eggs, grapes, lettuce, cow's milk, watei
cress, honey and salads (uncooked)

It seems that there can be no doubt
that the cliff dwellers were extermi

like neighbors, the men being killed
and the women being adopted into the
tribe of the conquerors, though in some
cases migrations may have become
necessary as a result of drought or
pressure from outside tribes.

Fruits of Old.
Many of the fruits and vegetables
now eaten in England were almost un
known to our forefathers. Not until
Henry VIII's time were raspberries or
strawberries or cherries grown In Eng
land, and we do not read of the turnip,
caufitlou-er and quince being cultivated
before the sixteenth century.
I pray you what is asleep?
Tile lily pads, and riffles and the reeds;
No longer inward do the waters creep.
No longer outwardly their force recedes.

I pray you, what's awake?
A host of stars, the long, long milky
That stretches out, a glistening silver
All Rlorlous beneath the moon's cold
And myriad reflections on the lake
Where star-gleams lay.
I pray you, what's astir?
Why, naught but rustling leaves, dry,
sere and brown;
The East's broad gates are yet a dusky
And star-gems twinkle In fair Luna's
And minor chords of walling winds that
Die slowly down.
I pray you what's o'clock?
Nay, who shall answer that but gray-
See how from out the shadows looms yon
Like some great figure on a canvas
And heard you not the crowing of the

Ducks and Birds Can Fly

Canvas-back and red-head ducks,
which are very quick of movement,
nfter deep diving are capable of taking
flight immediately upon coming to the
surface of the water. They do not
spring directly upward Into the air,
but fly at first at an angle until they
reach the desired elevation. Surface-
