UMAR. COLORADO Why Take Life Too Seriously? Some of us are beginning to realize (bat we have taken life too seriously; that we have not had enough play; that we have not had half enough fun. Many business men see the fallacy of working too many hours a day. For merly men thought they must spend most or all of the daylight hours in working. Intense application to busi ness had become almost a religion. But now they are beginning to learn that It is efficiency, mental vigor, freshness of mind and body, and not necessarily long hours that do things; and that this mental vigor, freshness and energy which produce efficient work are impossible when the body Is woary and the brain is fagged; that mental robustness means physical ro bustness, writes Orison Swett Warden In Success. So there has been a steady shortening of the working hours of men of affairs and an in creasing of the play hours. Just In pro portion to the Importance and efficien cy of their work and responsibility. Multitudes of men now find that they can accomplish much more in a year by spending part of the time which they used to put into work in playing golf, tennis, or some other game, or in flying about the country in an automo bile. There are plenty of business men in this country at the head of great establishments who get through an enormous amount of work, who do not spend more than three or four hours a dny in their offices, and who frequently take long vacations. They And that a good deal of play and mix ing much with the world not cnly im proves their health and multiplies their efficiency, but also gives them a broader, saner outlook. A Clean Sport. The future of baseball ought to be bright. Even the crowds which are now looking at the major league games arc small when compared with tho attendance at great crucial sport ing contests In England, where often 100,000 people pay to see a football or cricket match, though It may be doubted whether any English sport is conducted without betting, says the Philadelphia Public Ledger. Tho fu ture of horse racing in America Is not bright, for nobody has yet suggested a wn| to make it popular without bet ting, u way to conduct betting without moral dangers, or away to teach Amo:«*uns Indifference to tho waste ful, cynical, parasitic, vagabondizing Influences of gambling. Ilascball, a ■port which gains strength from its conquest of gambling, promises to in crease Its prestige as tho real king of ■ports in the United States. The fisheries congress has discov ered the interesting fact that the Mas sachusetts cod on which the Pilgrim fathers and their descendants sub •listed is responsible for tho develop ment of American Intellect, ns a steady brain diet, but nlso—and here Is where the Puritan settlers will turn In their graves—its salty qualities de veloped the great American thirst which water alone will not quench. The fisheries congress had better stop at this stage of its discoveries, or all New England will be up in arms at these dreadful exposures. That sec tion can stand the soft impeachment about the brain food, but that the ancient Pilgrim fathers Implanted the thirst of the modern Kentucky colonel Is too hard a pill to swallow. A pastor in a Pennsylvania town has been compelled to resign his charge on account of an attack he made upon the powder puffs used by tho femi nine contingent of his congregation. Hot shot on the part of the women fol lowed the powder attack, and the ex plosion which resulted shook the church to Its foundations. The pastor will leave presumably for parts where powder puffs are not popular—lf he can ffud such a locality. It now appears that when Queen Victoria of Spain recently visited Eng land it was a regular case of “going home to mother," Just like the ordin ary wife who has grievances to be re dressed. In this case it was tho for mality of Spanish etiquette, and the spirit of the English girl will probably brenk the chains which have for gen erations held royal domestic life in Bpaln. It is said that there are more blonde criminals than any other kind. First study the complexion and the weight of a man before imparting this infor mation to him. A man in New Jersey was tried for the murder of three people, found In sane and sent to an asylum, all In the same day. There are some things about Jersey Justice which other com munities might do well to imitate, re marks the Baltimore American, espe cially those in which the law's delay In dragging out criminal cases for days, weeks and months is a scandal to the authorities and turns the courts Into sensational melodrama houses for the masses, depriving these courts of both dignity and efficiency. A boy of three in Connecticut saved a girl of five from drowning. Tho in fant phenomenon is usually an un bearable nuisance, but a specimen of tho kind can be not only tolerated but also voted highly desirable when he begins the hero business at this early age. “Aeronef,” kind friends, is ihe proper word for that kind of aero plane. The art of flying is going to give the dictionary makers an excuse for selling you several new editions before long. LATEST NEWS EPITOMIZED FROM TELEGRAPHIC RE PORTS THAT COVER THE WEEK’S EVENTS.

Time of Sentiment Evidently Long Past with Husband.

They unearthed several large boxes full of love letters. After a hasty glance at them, the husband said: | "No use keeping this Junk, I sup pose?
