True HAPPINESS - the sublime sensation of being at peace with the world and with on6's con science -is the most precious thing in the world; andt it's one thing that money, alone will hot buy. But rich or poor, you will always find t in "Joyville." The Way to "Joyville."" Would you reach Joyville? The Spring Hill. Kas.. New Era tells how to Ret there: "If you want to go to Joyville take the Smiling highway past Gladtiome creek. Keen to the right all the way. -If you meet a poor woman with a basket carry it for her. When you meet a man say 'howdy.' If you stub vour toe. whistle. If it rains croon a song. If you are cold, run a little and think about something that will make your heart glow. If the way is long, recall how you trudged every Sunday night to your best girl's house and never got tired. If a dog barks at vou don't throw a stone at him. Snap your fingers at him and say, 'Good doggie!' If you feel like crying, laugh instead If you can do all this you'll get to Joyville all right and it is about the onlv way you will ever get . there."
