"I was In the old cabinet room with President Roosevelt one noon in June, 1902, when his barber brought in a skeleton reclining chair,' writes H. H. Kohlsaat, In the 'Saturday Evening Post, "Taking off his coat, but not his collar, the President reclined on the chair. The barber lathered hi face and began shaving him, but Roosevelt did not stop talking. ' "I said, 'He will cut you if you don't stop making faces and talking.' The look, the knight of the razor gave me for even suggesting such a thing si lenced me. "Major 'Loeffler, an appointee of President Grant's, who had guarded the President's door ever since, an nounced, 'Secretary of State Hay( and I Mr, Ralkes of the British embassy.' Roosevelt said, ,'Show them into the ' library, major ; will see them in a few minutes.' "Without turning his face he said, I know what they want. John Hay has brought Ralkes to thank me for putting the flag at half-mast on the White House when old Pauncefote died. I didn't do It because he was the British embassador, but because he was a d n good fellow.' " Tolstoy's Daughters In Need. v One of the last pleas lr.ade to me when I left Ryssla was for at least one food remittance a month and some small sums of money for twopdaugh ters of Tolstoy, who are permitted to maintain their father's home in the country as a public tauseum, but who are continually taking in young liter ary people and putting them to work arotind the grounds or in the library, j without sufficient funds to pay them j or adequate food for themselves or j their people. I was informed, that it would be foolish to give these ladles much at : any one time, as they would use it In ! the relief and support of others, George Ban Baker writes in Bulletin of the American Relief Administration. Rushes Signify One s Welcome. The saying "not orth a rush" dates back to the days before carpets were Invented, and the floors were strewn with rushes. When an honored fuest was expected fresh green ones were cut and spread, but people of lit tle consequence had to be contented with rushes that had been used, while till humbler folk got none at all. toxaoi INSURANCE A New Year's Song g 1 TIIIITTITt TIXlIItltTT XTji ON NEW TEAR'S EVE In England. All In the olden day, The children went a-c&rollng. All In the ojden way; And ever as they journey'd on. This chorus would you hear: "Qod send you happy, God sen you happy. Pray God send you a happy New Tear!" Across the fields and meadows And through the frosty . light. While starry eyes and starry skies Illumed the wintry night. The children caroled blithely on, In chorus sweet and clear: , "God send you happy,. God send you happy, f Pray God send you a happy'New Tear!" Our days are sadly modern, Our ways are modern, too; But hearts still beat as high with love As once they used to do Bo take the old-time message, ' Good friends, both far and near; "God send you happy, God send you happy. Pray God send you a happy New Tear!" Nora Archibald Smith. ARulfe of Life I THOUGH every day Is a new be ginning, and so far as our person al experience is concerned a "new year" may start any time, there Is something about the ending of Decem ber and the first week or so of Janu ary that makes even the careless thoughtful. The passing year has brought both Joy and sorrow what may not the next have In store? Where shall we be when the New Year bells fall on pur ears again? Who will be with us?' Shall we be 111 or well? Disquieting questions that disturb our ease and.ake-us Inclined to fear. We have blundered sorely, It may be, In the bid year; some of its pages are blurred with regret, or the sombre stains of remorse. And no matter what happiness may have been ours, there Is always something we did or left undone which saddens us as we remember. Shall we make the same mistakes once more, leave the same blotted record? Our hearts grow chill, and we turn away, disheartened on the New Year's threshold. This is quite the wrong spirit In which to face the battle that lies be fore us. It is right that we should I look back to see where we failed, and how. But this . once recognized, with our plea for forgiveness a plea that will never be refused if we are truly sorry we must lift up our hearts again and set out to slay our enemies. They are within un, not without. In side oUr citadel dwells that evil tem per, that pride, that Indolence, that greed of envy which ternpts us to de sert our colors to think that the fight is hopeless. Each -of us has his own special temptation, and, once we real ize the form ours takestthe way lies straight before us. 1 It's the fashion to smile at New Year resolutions, so often made only to be broken ; but they are a definite help Jf we make them firmly Intending to keeD them ! They will only weaken us if we throw them to a troublesome conscience merely as a sop something to keep it quiet for the time, until it goes to "sleep again. Providing that they be sufficiently elastic to change their form when there Is . reasonable cause, rules fence in duties that might be neglected, and keep them In the , forefront of our minds. But to multi ply rules Is a big mistake, for there 1 is one which, faithfully kept, will make, us both blessing, and blessed. The Rule of Love. Just loving our neighbor as we love ourselves ; serving him, trusting him, hoping (for him. Refraining even under grave provoca tion from saying what would sting if he, said it to us; forgiving him as we would be forgiven; considering him as we would be considered; helping him when he needs It with the thoughtful delicacy which makes help acceptable Instead of . humbling; respecting his weakness, his prejudice, his infirmity; laughing with him instead of at him; and, should there come a time when sincerity demands, we should say what we know will not please him, taking care to blend truth with charity. All the "little" rules we make for ourselves come into line with this one. The Rule of Order oh, how many New Years have we not begun with ,,the resolution that we would not leave our things about, nor lose them, nor hide them away I For we cannot be untidy all to ourselves any more than ,we can be ill tempered and not spoil someone else's pleasure; and nothing Is more upsetting to already wearied brains than the fuss and worry of hunting for things which should be ready to hand. The Rule of Punctll' iousness In little things, that famous Moller of the wheels of life," will make us both polite and punctual, as we must be if we would' be pleasant to Work with (Judging other people's .preferences by our own!) The Rule :of GettlngUp-In-Tlme (this almost deserves all capitals!) means, if kept, ,a great deal more than our own con veniences, since everything we do or leave undone is bound to react on our neighbors. And even if we often fail to keep, .even fitfully, the golden rule which enjoins us to love them as ourselves. efery effort we make in thlsllTrection brings Its own reward, here and now. As we grow Into the habit of thinking of people kindly we 'cease to be an noyed at their peculiarities, and create an atmosphere of good feeling In which they cene to be annoyed at ours. We must always remember that the bearing and forbearing is not needed on our side alone as Thomas a Kempls said long ago, when we find our neighbor difficult to put up with, we may be sure that he finds It equally difficult to put up with us. There will always be need for self-control and patience; but when we reckon up gain and loss on the eve of 1923, in the measure we have kept the Rule of Love', so one will outweigh the other. "We turn and look' upon the valley of the past year," says Stopford Brooke. "There below are the spot stained by our evil and our fear. But as. we look a glow of sunlight breaks upon the past, and in the sunshine Is a soft rain falling from heaven. It washes away the stain, and from tha purity of the upper sky a voice seems to descend and enter our sobered hearts. 'My child, go forward, abiding In faith, hope, and love, for lo, I am with you alway ..." May the New Year bring us all near each other as children of the same dear Father. Exchange. NEW YEAR DEMANDS OUR BEST. When people calmly talk over their troubles there are few of them that cannot be adjusted satisfactorily. It's this suspicion and hate that block progress L'et men learn the real na ture af their fellows and there will be a change In their attitude toward them. There's enough good In every man to change the nature of the world. Let's v get busy and dig up the noble J sentiments and hopes that are burled beneath years of unfair thinking and cheap theories of I living. The New Year demands the best we can pro duce. Grit. I Holiday .A i Spirit (0,1822, Weatern Newspaper Union.) , QAN there be anyone who does not polish up his holiday spirit by reading Dickens' "Christmas Carol"? Is there anyone who does not give him self , the fun of, skimming down the slide with Bob Cratchit and laughing at his comforter, "three yards long, ex clusive of the fringe," stream outbe-. hind him like the woolly tall of a kite? Is there anyone who does not creep up the cold staircase with Old Scrooge and shiver Into his dismal roo.. there to eat a small and lonely bowl of por ridge with the crusty old gentleman? Is there anyone who' does not love Tiny Tim and his wee, brave crutch? And Mrs. Cratchit, who can cook a goose to beat anything thus far ac-' oomplishediln the history of mankind? And then, when we follow the Spirit of Christmas Past,, can anyone fall to be moved by the forlorn little figure of Old Scrooge as a lad, left In loneli ness at school during the holidays? Could anything be more pathetic? Has anyone such astounding control of his feet that he can prevent them from dancing at Mr. Fezzl wig's party? And where is the' impossible person who can suppress a cheer at that re markable gentleman's performance with his legs? "If such there be, go, mark him well," for he has no pleas ant places in his heart for these de lightful humors. . And then the damsel with the "lace tucker" ! Dear me, what a cnase she gave one interested young man in Blind Man's Buff! And hoyv he paid her up for It in a certain shadowy corner of the room; how he did. In deed! Buthe liked it. Oh, yes, she liked it very much Indeed, did the dam sel with the lace tucker I Then to return to the Cratchit fam ily, who Is there to resist the simple toast of Tiny Tim, a toast of five words that encompasses the hope of all rlien: "GOD BLESS US, EVERY ONE J" Eagle Supply Pencils, .with four leads inside of pencil. 16c at The Canaan Printing Co. , I WANT local salespeople for new and surprising household article.
