DIED AT GRAND RAPIDS William Boles was called to Grand Rapids, Thursday evening, by a telegram announcing the serious illness of bis father, and departed on the evening train for that city, but before he could reach there the vital spark bad tied. The funeral services were held in Grand Rapids this morning. The deceased was quite well known in Wausau having visited here on many occasions. He was a kindly, genial old gentleman, one who com manded the respect of his Wausau friends and who during bis many years spent in Grand Rapids merited and held the confidence and respect of the many with whom be had come in contact. —Wausau News. MAKE THE BEST OF THINGS If we only consider the importance of attention to this, how very different would the world be. “There was never a bad but there might be a worse,” we say, but do we always remember this when the bad luck is our own? How few of us meet the world with a smiling face when troubles assail us; we make no effort to do this, We see only the cloud, the silver lining is ever invisible to the unbeliever. Some of us make some effort to make the best of our clothes and personal appearance, and, if not the highest aim, this is a step in the right direction. There is no part of life where we should not be trying to do the same. Our friends, who are so dependent on what we think of them—who are so often, alas, what we make them—our education, our opportunities, are all ours to be made the best of, and we ourselves depend upon our success.
