Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous diffl cul tk*.—Spurgeon. Wc are forming two new branches this society In Wilmington, one for young ^dies between 17 and 26, the other for older people. Sunshine is non-sectarian, and we will be glad to receive application Into either of these branches. The following lessons from our Manual will give some idea for what our society stands: Reader; People complain that they have no time for anything, yet they have all the time there is. Sufficient unto the moment is tho duty which It brings to mind. Members: Whoever would not have the present hour torn like a blank from the book of life must use It, for it passes, never to return. Read.: Be glad, then, because the hour gives you the chance to work, to play, to love ,to look up to the stars of night or to bask In the sun shine of noon. Mem.: The chance to study hard, to think quietly, to talk gently, to act frankly. Read.: The chance to listen to babes and to sages with an open mind. Mem.: Thinking often of your friends, seldom of your enemies, yield. Ing seldom to your repulsions, often to your attractions and your admira tions. Read.: Coveting nothing that is your neighbors except his kindness of heart, his courtesy, his unselfish • ness. Mem.: Satisfied with the oportun ities Providence has • given you. but not contented with yourself till you have made the best use of them all. Read.: Despising nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, fearing nothing except cowardice, seeking nothing save to do the right, as God gives you to see the right. Mem.: Realizing that the one who aims only to make thought and actions tell for good .has time and energy enough to make a red letter success out of every day. Read.; Peeling that personal sor row is the mere rust of the soul, that activity will cleanse and brighten it. Mem.: Squaring yourself for use In the full knowledge that no stone that may fit into the wall is left to encumber the highway. Fourth Lesson: Methods. Q. What Is the Sunshiny way of giv ing? A. As one equal passes the salt to another at table, kindly, courteously, without the spirit of patronage, with out Ihr feeling of having imposed an obligation. * Q. What 1» the Sunshiny way of re ceiving? 9. As one equal receives salt passed to him by another equal at table, grateful without absequieusness, con fldent that the giver has done nothing that the receiver would not have done had the conditions been rewarded. Q. But, suppose the gift meant life Instead of starvation, warmth instead of freezing, to the receiver, does that alter the case at all? A. Not in IHc least. The Almighty, as Host, has furnished the table for all of us. To he near the salt is to have the duly of passing It. To as sume that such service demands hum ble acknowledgment is to affront the giver and to dishonor the maker of the feast. Q. How does the International Sun shine Society seek to emphasize the right way of giving and the'right way of receiving? A. By having no initiation 'fees, no dues except kind acts, which the poorest may pay as easily as the rich est, the humblest as well as the most exalted. Q. What is the practical effect of this plan? A. Since all are equal, the receiver never feels a loss of self-respect ;Suu shlnn may take the from of food <y out-grown clothes, or passed-on toys, or money In an emergency; or It may take the form of giving a new inter est in life to the weary, the suffering, the sorrowing who are rich in world ly goods. Within the limitations of the society the great problem of mod ern charily is solved, the self-respect ing who would starve rather than ask alms are relieved, and in later pros perity they help others in the same way. Q. is the creation and management of relief institutions compatible with tills line of effort? A. it is. if the institutions are or ganized with the same idea in view, and *ro informed with the same spirit of kindliness. Q. And what is the world-call of the International Sunshine Society? A. Be good cheerfully. ) n ell things do good cheerfully to all people; help as best you can to make life better worth living for everybody. Some of the things the society does to carry out the above ideas are a b DANCING t MISS MARION McLWAN, Announces the opening of A.

We have rest, homos and sanatarlums, scholarships at a university, libraries in mining camps. How do we sup prot them? Our wealthy members give money or concerts or other en tertainments as benefits; merchants have confldenc in us and assist, our members who are not wealthy contrib ute whatever talents they have In '"No one is useless In this other ways, world who Lightens tho burdens of it for any one else." So far, our local sunshine, in addition to the wheel chairs. is supplying nourishing food, delicacies or flowers to the sick, read ing to the aged or blind, giving boat rides or automobile rides to these con fined all day in stores or offices, pass ing on magazines, or clothing; recent ly we assisted in raising money for an artificial leg for a poor boy who has to work. Some of our readers sent their contributions anonoraously, some through branches, some sent it direct with their name; one mother sent the contents of a bank which belonged to her little son, who left this world last October'; he was saving for Christ mas. What a beautiful thought it was for the mother to send it to help an afflicted boy. And thus we aim to "do the thing that is needed, when it is needed, whether the thing is a little or a large one." Some of our readers have hot houses, and do not use all the flowers. Do not let them fade without giving joy to someone.

DOVER, Del., Feb. 25.—By a vote or 10 to 7 the Senate passed Sena tor Blackstone's bill to make the stealing of dogs larceny. The Sena tors had some fun during tho discus sion.
