The owner is somewhat advanced in years,

is withheld for the present by Capt. C. W.

The clergyman left Norway about 40
years ago as a sailor ald followed th:

theology. He designed the craft himself.

for three or four people.
She will be equiipped with a So-horse
This is easier said than done, yet it may
be of some help to consider the matter.
If the cause is something over which you
have no control it is obvious that worrying
will not help the matter in the least. On
the other hand, if within your control you
have only to act. When you have a cold
