When a man passes the thirtieth mile post and has loved no good wo man, he has lost his best chance of life for happiness, and the sooner he calls a halt and thinks it over the bet ter. Men give up a great deal for their families—their time, their strength, the knowledge they have gained in life’s experiences—they snend every thing freely for their home’s sake, and the home should pay its debt in much outspoken love.

Carpenters are still busy putting in partitions and re-arranging the interior for the new business ven ture. Boys, as well as girls, should be taught to help in the house. How often we have been disgusted to see that the girls are made to help with the housework while the boys are allowed to play checkers, or sit at the fire toasting their toes. Mrs. Nellie Horr and son, of Rhine lander, were in the city the past w ek looking after the Cole house pr ( ~cty on Oak street.

This week will pro bably see the close. A great and fav orable change has been made. All connected with this work are to be complimented in the part they took in making the improvements. One of the sweet occupations of old age is recalling the scenes and oc currences of one’s youth. So try to store up as many pleasant recollec tions as possible for a future supply. Among the happiest will be found those of the good we did for others, and the innocent fun we enjoyed. Mothers, train your boys to be neat in the house. They should be taught to look after themselves, and to keep their hats and coats in their proper places. Teach them this habit and you will also do a kindness to the boys by teaching them neatness and self-respect. The families of Dr, F. X. Pomainville and F. L. Steib, in their respective cars made a trip Sunday to Neillsville via Pittsville and returned home via Marshfield. They had a picnic lunch and were back in time for supper. The outing was a pleasant one which tjiey all enjoyed. Good roads and no car troubles. You may set it down as a fact that there isn’t a twelve-year-old boy in the neighborhood who hasn’t his opin ion of you—and he wouldn’t be slow about expressing it either, if a strang er should ask him for it. Every man ! is always making character whether he is doing anything else or not. Why not build character that you may ever look back upon it with pride. Mrs, Eugene Miller entertained the girls o * the class of Second Year Junior Girls of the Methodist Sun day school at her home on Ninth St. S., Saturday afternoon. Twelve mem bers of the class were present and the afternoon was pleasantly spent in playing games, contests and music after which dainty refreshments were served by Mrs. Miller. One reason why so many girls and boys, men and women, too, are un interesting, is because they try so hard to bze like somebody else rather than be content to remain himself or herself in life. In nature you don’t see an oak posing as a willow, or a black duck as a yellow leg, or a lilac as a peony, or a dog as a cat . Be natural and you’ll be all right. The hearing and seeing of aero planes as they pass to and from their destinations are becoming quite fa miliar sights. On Friday noon one was heard passing over Grand Rapids and seen to alight east of the city. The aviator was in need of gasoline and was obliged to land to secure it. Sev eral drove out to see the machine and witnessed its depr rture. We fear many good housewives make a serious mistake in giving too much time to Sunday cooking. Others perhaps are equally in error by over working on Saturday, so that they cannot properly rest or enjoy the Sab bath day. Parents and children ought to be more to each other. A day of uplift and delight it ought to be made in every home. Place a young girl under the care of kind-hearted women, and she, un consciously te herself, grows into a graceful lady. Place a boy in the es tablishment of a thoro-going, straight forward business man, and the boy be comes a self-reliant, practical busi ness man. Children are susceptible creatures., and circumstances, scenes and actions always impress. The social neighbor is not always the useful neighbor, yet each in her place has special influences to exert of equally beneficial consequences. The sympathetic neighbor is also a popular one, but she has to exercise continuous tact, lest her solacing in fluence may occasionally be overdone or utilized at untimely periods. The inquisitive neighbor is always a dread to everybody within the reach of her inquisitive curiosity, as she does not seem to have any intuitive respect for others’ feelings as regards their di vulgence of personal affairs to an out sider. Right here is the secret of awk wardness. It is self-consciousness. A girl who thinks about how she is go ing to look when she extends her hand will hold it out as stiff as a pump handle. If she is worried about the appearance of her walk she will stalk over the landscape like a wood en dummy. What a person does grace fully is done unconsciously. So if a person would learn grace she must first learn how to do things uncon sciously and she can only learn to do things unconsciously by doing them often. C. T. Purdy, of New York City, Mrs. Emma Kensler, son Paul, and daugh ter Ruth of Madison, were in the city Monday and Tuesday, guests of Mr. and Mrs. F. J, Wood. Corrydon Purdy and his sister, Mrs. Kensler, were born educated and raised to womanhood and manhood in Grand Rapids before they left here years ago. Their father and mother are both buried in Forest Hill cemetery and they are greatly inter ested in keeping up the family lot. They both admire Grand Rapids and pay the city many compliments in keep ing up the city and her cemeteries.

Their old-time friends are always glad to see them. NEKOOSA Mrs. G. E. Marvin entertained the members of the Recreation Club at her home Saturday afternoon.

Many of the strikers, during the past thirteen weeks that the strike has been on, have conducted them selves in such a manner that they will not employ them again upon any con dition.
