lu wasted trying to do for) myself cU' never come bade. , But I believe there was a lot more good in Chris Wolf than he realized. He found he couldirt. .entirely square himself with himself, ffat can YOU? I can't. It took me too long to find out that the real joy of living is in living for others, and that love for, others is the greatest thing in the world. - , I wonder how many of Chris Wolf's friends are wise enough to know that in the end they will be no better off than he is now; and that they are pil ing up misery for themselves in tak ing happiness from others in order to have it for themselves. Wearing Diamonds. Congress man Prduty of Iowa objects to peo ple wearing diamonds, and says that the millions of dollars' worth of dia monds worn by swell women at swell sassiety functions never find their way onto the tax duplicate. It would be interesting to know how much crime the wearing of dia monds is responsible for. A man cames along the street- He wears a diamond stickpin in his necktie. Another man out of work, with empty stomach and empty pqeket, sees the diamond. He thinks what it means. to him and what it means to the fellow who wears it. To the owner it means only what pleasure it affords his vanity. He can't see it hinjself unless he takes the stickpin out, or is where he can look in a mirror. But he knows oth ers can see it. Possibly he feels that it makes him appear more important in the eyes of those who look at it. But he can't eat it. It won't keep him warm. It won't ward off the snow or rain. It serves no useful purpose, unless he gets broke and needs money.

It may tie he enters the mansion of the woman of the diamonds and steals them. They ar.e so easily converted into money, and then into food, clothing and shelter. When I see these useless baubles it seems to me that every one of them is a burning invitation to steal. " I wonder if anybody ever owned a diamond that wasn't associated .di rectly or indirectly with a moral or statutory crime. Anyhow, diamonds always make me think of crime. I know I wouldn't wear one.
