Those who are happiest are the most earnest workers. It is folly to say that we can find no labor. Life itself is a stupendous task. It is cowardly, however, to shirk labor by feigning not to see it. Each mortal, if he does his duty, will have a busy life. Cold Feet. During a marriage ceremony in Scotland recently the bridegroom look ed extremely wretched, and he got so fidgety, standing first on one foot and then on the other, that the "best man" decided he would find out what the trouble was. "What's up, Jack?" he whispered. "Hue ye lost the ring?" "No," answered the unhappy one. with a woful look, "the ring's safe enough, but. man, I've lost ma enthu siasin."—Boston Transcript. Lucky He Was Saved. **Tou can't convince me." said the lit tle man with the ragged trousers, "that you can bring tip children right by talkin' to 'tin and lettin' it go at that You've got to use the rod. or you'll spoil the child. 1 used to git about three lickiu's a day on the average." "It doesn't seem to have done much for you." replied the lady with the pro truding jaw. "It done a lot for me. If they'd let me go my own way I might almost of been a failure in life."—Judge. A Spirit of Resignation. An actor on Iris benefit night, having a very limited audience, when he came to the ofteu quoted passage, " 'Tis not in "mortals to command success, but we'll do more, Senipronlus; we'll deserve it." heaved a deep sigh and substituted for the last line, "But we'll do more. Seni pronlus: we'll do without It"—"Pic * A—'-nm -• k ts. • - lures and the Picture Goer." For Baby's Bath. If the baby is afraid of the water and cries and screams when taking bis bath buy several prettily colored cork "bobbers" such as fishermen use. Throw these in the bathtub and baby will be so busy trying to catch them that he will forget to be afraid of his morning bath and will even learn to like it.—Mother's Magazine. | __ ,j B Not Worth a Rush. The expression "Not worth a rush" is as a popular saying the predeces sor of the now more common simile "Not worth a straw." In preenrpet days it was the custom to strew the floors of dwelling houses. When guests of rank were entertained fresh rushes were spread for them, but folk of low er degree had to be content with rush es that had already been used, while still humbler persons had uone. as not even being "worth a rush."—London Standard, t Mod#rn Requirement#. The real estate man was showing apartments to the young married pair. "There are." he said, "seven rooms and two baths; large, spacious kitchen; bot and cold water, southern exposure, elevator service, steam heat, gas, elec tricity and no charge for Janitor's jobs. The price is especially low —only $1,500 We will do all the papering repair floors and ceilings derations you desire." " to her uiater. '**■ won't A Summer of Haze. Europe and Asia were covered by fog during the summer of 1783. Says Gilbert White (letter 109): "The sum mer of the year 1783 was an amazing and a portentous one, * * * for. be sides the alarming meteors and tre mendous thunderstorms, * * * the peculiar haze or smoky fog that pre vailed for many weeks in this island (England) and in every part of Europe and even beyond its limits was a most extraordinary appearance. The heat was Intense. Calabria and part of the Isle of Sicily were torn and convulsed with earthquakes." Cowper also re fers to this phenomenon in speaking of "nature, with a dim and sickly eye." Too Much Wit. An East Cleveland man who likes to tinker about his home pulled away the steps to his side door last Saturday and took them into the garage, where he added sundry nails to makeup. He was lugging them back when his next door neighbor looked over the fence and said: "Hello. Brown. What you doing? Repairing your house?" "I'm taking steps in that direction," Brown replied. He was so much pleased with his wit that he forgot his caution, tripped on a croquet wicket and. falling over the steps, cut his nose on the scraper. —Cleveland Plain Dealer. ----- ■% The Magnetic Poles. The north magnetic pole is in lati tude 70 degrees 5 minutes, and west longitude 90 degrees 40 minutes. The south magnetic pole is in latitude 72 degrees 30 minutes, and in east longi tude 155 degrees 30 minutes. A straight line drawn from pole to pole through the earth would pass at a distance of 750 miles from the center. And one of the remarkable facts about this mag netic axis of the earth is that it keeps itself at right angles to a line drawn from its center to the center of the sun.—New York American. Psalms Not Barred. The other evening Miss Y.. n maid lady of uncertain years, suspeciin- it, cook was entertaining her beau dew: stairs, called Martha and iuquiiv whether she did not hear some oj. talking with her. "Oil, no, ma'am!" cried the quick wi ted Martha, "it was only me singiui: a psalm." "Very good." returned Miss Y sig niflcantly. "You may amuse yourself with psalms, but let's have no bims " —Exchange. MODERATE ABILITY. The art of being able to make a good use of moderate abilities wins esteem and often confers more rep utation than greater real merit. — La Rochefoucauld. Cheerful. A certain philosopher used to thank his lucky stars when he had the gout that It was not the toothache, and when he had the toothache he gave thanks because he had not both com plaiufs at ouce. - . ■4—. Never Touched Him. Landlady (to new boarder, crushing ly>— Mr. Newcome, that is the cream and not the milk you are pouring on your oatmeal. It was intended for the coffee. Mr. N'.—Oh. never mind. Mrs. Balkins. I like it just as well. Quick Growing Rice. In Siain there is under cultivation a common sort of rice which in tiood times grows as much as a foot in twelve hours, so that the plant often attains a height of ten feet in its ef forts to keep its leaves above water. Selfish. "Bliggius says he can't write on a typewriter because the noise disturbs him." "Yes. If there is any noise going on Bliggius wants to make it himself."— Washington Star. Successful. "I started out on the theory that the world had an opening for me, and 1 went to find it." "Did you find it?" "Oh, yes; I'm in a hole."—Baltimore American. Always Dreaded the 14th. Most dismal of all men off the stage was Grimaldi. the clown, and his fa ther fathered him. He had that curi ous dread of a certain date which as sails so many. The elder Grimaldi hat ed the 14tb of the month, and when it was passed he regarded himself as safe until the next He was born, christened and married on the 14th of the month, and. being discontented with all three events, we will hope his death on March 14. 1788, satisfied him —London Tatler. Pitfalls of Slang. Host (in ludia—Do you see that fa natic over there? He has sat on that corner and in that i*osture without moving for six mouths. Traveler (from America*—Gee. that's going some!- Chicago Tribune. r~ v ' - ■ • A Proud Boast. A teachers' meeting was in progress, and it was decided that the more difficult subjects should come in the morning and those that required less application later in the day. History was last on the list, and Miss Wheeler, the young teacher, protested. "But it certainly is easier than science or mathematics." the principal insisted. "As I teach it." replied the young teacher, "no subject could be more difficult and confusing."—Lippincott's. White Socks Diplomacy. She—Jimmy wears different socks every day. He—How to you know? She—By just looking at thorn. Sundays he wears white ones; on Mondays he wears them shaded under the aukles. and on Tuesdays lie has a cute little ring around them next to his shoetips. He—And the rest of tlie week? She- He wears high shoes.—Detroit Free Press. The Liberty Statue. From time immemorial such great sentiments as liberty, justice, truth have been spoken of and when put intc verse, statue or painting have been represented as being feminine. Just why this be so there is no tell ing. but it is so. It was in obedience to this custom that "Liberty Enlight ening the World" stands in the shape of a woman.—New York Journal. Building For Earthquakes. In the seismic districts of Italy all new buildings are being erected under strict supervision with respect to their ability to resist earthquake shocks. Professor Oniori. the Japanese author ity. lias estimated that 99.8 per cent of the deaths in the great Messina earthquake of 1908 would have been prevented if the buildings had been properly constructed. CONTENTMENT. The happy state of mind so rarely possessed in which we can say, "I have enough," is the highest attainment of philosophy. Happi ness consists not in possessing much, but in being content with what we possess. He who wants little al ways has enough. —Zimmerman. The Place For All. "Nothing," says Robert Herrick, "ir ritates the thinking woman more than to be told that woman's place is in the home. She knows it. It is the man's place also, and she knows that."—Bos ton Globe Watch Crystals.
