children stoped for a moment before
the Jacob's Building yesterday an*
every child's face -wore a smile'wh'ch
nothing could erase. Such a happy lot
of youngsters I never saw. They were
on the way home and were feeling Just
fine. Several women who were on
ease safe and sound, does make one's
the entrance to the Jacob's Building
remarked: "Doesn't It do your heart
good to see them!"* Indeed it did!
To know that so many of the little
children have come through the diseaose
safe and sound, does make one's
nean reel giaa. it naj oeeu a. gicu |

I listened to one of the drivers cf
an auto truck who has been on the
job continually be lore the Jacob's
Building in the interest of the Emergency
Influenza Hospital this last
week as he talked over the telephone. |
He said he wished to postpone again
his engagement with the dentist. 11
heard bint remark later that he had j
postponed that engagement Just five J
times because he felt he could d.ii j
be spared. Surely?when one does j

I talked to a small soldier today who
owns a khaki suit for the first time, i
He was Just about the proudest lad
in all Fairmont He walked Just like
one of Eugene Field's toy tin soldier;
?much as though a broom handle
had been run up his back to keep it
straight. At first I paid no attention
to him because I was thinking of
other things,?but soon I became
aware of a persistent overshadowing
of my thought and I glanced up to
see this mite of a man trying hard to
mt- attention. He held his
chin -well in and his chest -well oat
and with a couple of extremely short
legs taking large pieces out of the
room space, I smiled in spite of one
or two gloomy speculations which'
together with the rain were fencing
me away from a more pleasant passing
of time..
"Come here to me!** I called The
wee boy came swiftly, stood at attenshone
gloriously as he removed his
cap. "Do you know what I think?" 1
remarked seriously to him. "I think
somebody should go immediately and
buy a large bag of candy for a boy as
fine looking as you!" And what do you
you imagine this youngster replied'
He said: "I'm not buying candy now
?I'm buying thrift stamps. You can
buy me one. I'll let you!" And I did.
