By H. M. Cochran. I wonder now if everyone Couldn't just as well be kind; If that were so, why things would be More cneeriul, you would nnd. We only live one life, they say; Let's make the best of that. If you are kind and I am kind. We'll know just where we're at It's surely just as easy, now To treat a fellow square, And keep a disposition That runs cheerful everywhere. Some folks are so complainy, that - They fairly make you sick. I'd rather meet the fellow whom The folks say "He's a brick." You're told to smile by everyone, Who writes in any line. Now, just keep un that smiling, take That healthy tip for mine. i It is to laugh, though, 'cause I know, You folks read this with ease. And then ygu lay the thought away, And do as you darn please. o o HIS GREATEST WISH "What is your greatest wish, doc tor, now that you have successfully passed for your degree?" Young Doctor To put "Dr." be fore my own name and "Dr." after the names of other people. Lif e. CAR MEN REFUSE TO CARRY MILITIAMEN SUSPENDED Buffalo, N. Y., March 24. The crews of twelve street cars of the In- ternational Railway were today sus pended from duty because they refus ed to run cars containing militiamen on their way from armories to the railroad stations, inspectors and divi-'-sion superintendents were compelled to man the cars. Several times during the morning gathering mobs were quickly dis persed at the point- of bayonets. There were no serious disorders. When the strikers began to gather about the entrances "of the Gould Coupler CompanyJthey were met y armed troops. Patrols were estab lished and went through the entire town of Depew, dispersing crowds which gathered at every corner. This display had a very quieting effect on the men and no signs of disorder were shown. Colonel Wolf of the 74th regiment stationed men in all of the shops and this afternoon he will hold a confer ence with, saloonkeepers and warn them that unless they keep within their bounds he will close their places. It is the belief of the train crew and officials of the Gould Company that many men injured in yesterday's battle are being cared for at the homes of strikers in Depew. The one display of resistance the soldiers encountered came with the refusal of street car crews to man the trolley cars carrying the militia to the Lackawanna Railroad station. The demonstration occurred in front of the 74th regiment armory and was quickly ended when the troops drove the motonnen and conductors into the street at the point of bayonets. Street car men affiliated, with the union, formed during the street car strike last April, were in session to day with the purpose of discussing what action on the clash between the men and the soldiers should be taken. Talk of another street car strike was heard about union headquarters.
