Evening Chat
A friend of mine said to me ftiday:
"Do you really believe there Is a life
after this? I have been reading Omar
Khayyam and I'm growing to agree
with the chap? Strange is it not?
that of the. myriads who before ns
passed the door of darkness through
not one returns to tell ns of the road,
whioh to discover we must travel too."
"Don't read.what Onjar imagined he
believed." I replied.' "He was a
pessimistic soul and even in the midst
of his waitings prayed a prayer like
this,?"And he that tossed you down
Into the Field. He knows about it all?
He knowa?He knowa!"
Of course He knows. Did you ever
hear a child say to his mother? "I
hate you and you are a mean old
thing!" Children feel that way about
It often and often. Did you ever know
a person who maintained calm silence
in the face of all manner of calamities
?an individual -who possessed a disposition
much like a smooth lake.
God is very much like a smooth lake
and there are a number of people in
the world who delight to throw pebbles
for the pleasure of seeing a ripple.
It is an odd fact, that perfect
things in the world very often give
birth to momentary hatred. Children
lislike their parents .because they try
so hard and everything goes wrong
while father and mother seem to air
ways come out ahead. Grown-ups
ion't as a rule hate God; but they do
often criticise Him and His world just
because it goes so calmly and steadfastly
and on and on. It grows tantalizing
to many dispositions and because
we are so very small, it somellmoc

Just now we are approaching a most
perfect day in the year and unless -we
watch out, we are going to .make it a
time of give and take, so much for

that?"Run. over and hint
around until you find out what so and
so is going to give me for Xmas! Unless
she is going to give me something
i'm not going to bother this year!"
Many people feel that because they
are expected to do so, they must present
certain friends with certain ,
gifts. Children very often play a
xtean game something like this,?"Oh,
my, I am so busy?I bought your present

INSTANT SKIN COMFORT.
NOXZEMA
Pleases Dainty Women
and Particular Men
Noxzema is not a crude ointment,
greasy and repulsive, but a clean antiseptic,
healing and vanishing cream.
Both "Day'* and "Night"' Cream
Noxzema is wonderful cleansing and
healing removing blackheads and other
little particles of dirt and at the
same time its antiseptic qualities head
any irritation or infection that may
exist.
SKIN DISEASES
Eczema, burns, humors, milk crusts,
cuts, salt rheum. Itching piles or other
inflamed conditions of the skin lose
their terror the moment NOXZEMA is
applied. It not only brings you immediate
relief but it gives you no trouble;
you rub it right into the slcln.
where it disappears, leaving no greasy
surface to mar your appearance or
soil yonr clothes. Crane's Drag store

and says.?"Til jast have to "bay some

Two fiends got together last, week
and decided to put a stop to senseless
giving For years they had presented
one another with various center' pieces.
towels, plates and such articles.
Said one of them: "Mary, let's quit!
I give yon something every year yon
don't want and you give me something
1 don't want and let's turn over a
new leaf!" Both friends laughed
heartily and agreed. When Christmas
morning arrives this year these
two -women have decided to exchange
books. ""Well each buy one of the
new books. Ill give you mine and you
give me yours. When we read ours,
well exchange. As I never get enough
books and as 'the new ones cost more

apiece." As both women were fond
of reading, the plan stxited them exactly.
"What do you think of "It? Frankly
planning to? give so much for so
much, all deceltfulness in the matter
was done away with.
When Xmas day dawns clear and
pure Instead of the usual?"1 have a
