Speaking of military aviation there can be no doubt that the unexpected success of the allies put the whole concert of Europe up in the air for a time. That elector who proposes to es tablish a precedent by voting for a woman as the Republican candidate for vice-president may be paying her a dubious compliment.

Who ca say what the limit of triumph may he in the better times to come? For the world, like every young year, is getting more light. It as more of the sunshine of truth more of the life-giving rays of knowledge. If they seem cold and sterile, at times. It is because humanity’s year is still young. “We are ancients of the earth, and in the morning of the times.” , . , This increasing light of knowledge, this brighter beacon to guide the steps of mankind, must flower and fruit In richer gains than humanity has yet won. It is an accumulating force, like the warmth which the sun gives the earth in spring The thinkers and dreamers of the world this is so. They are inspired by the consciousness that with growing knowledge there must come increased power and higher wisdom to direct and control it for the help and uplifting of mankind. The faith sees the life and growth, the color and warmth of spring, in the lengthening days of winter. They perceive that the world of men and women, and of the children, too, though still far from the full tide of its summer, is already well into the long new year of the human family. They are as certain of the spring for all mankind as they are that January will pass and May will come. It Is a mistake to reflect too much upon the past. It has its lessons, but the learning of them should not so absorb our attention as to preclude us from incorporating them into our daily life, transmuting the memory and experience into the gold of use ful practicability and ready' work that yields results. Introspection was getting so insist ently a habit of the New Year that we are beginning to forget it was but a means to an end —the re flective porch to the large ani spa cious chamber of lofty resolve and ac complishment. We fancy sometimes that a faint suggestion of maudlin sentiment crept into the self-analy sis, converting what should have proved a stepping stone to higher planes of activity into a more pur gatory of self-abnegation ending in a cul-de-sac. We want to make our reflection an avenue that leads through paths of earnest thought to the high tablelands of glorious endeavor and achievement The soul itself must be utilitarian and not waste itself in unprofitable penance. What has the year accomplished for womanhood? There has unquestion ably been a remarkable renaissance of the feminine. Woman has broaden ed her outlook, established her claim to wider recognition of her talents, Im pressed public life with her power for good, and raised her physical and men tal scale of the sex. Thank God. among the general advancement there is one that Is inspiringly reactionary—a re version to the old veneration for the sanctity of motherhood —the holiest and divinest calling of all, a calling in volving great sacrifice, great sorrows, but bringing with it, on the other hand, untold compensating joys. In the medical profession woman has done well, while in the humbler MERCY OF THE COURTS The justice of the peace was in the south and a mark'ed state of igno rance.

The German paper Schuss and Waffe describes a bullet named for its inventor, Lentz, for which great things are claimed in the way of de stroying dirigible balloons, which will undoubtedly appear In the next war between nations of the first rank.

Two prongs are held in slots in the bullet while it is in the barrel of the ■Year’s End. v ranks of nursing our efficient hospitals tell their own eloquent tale of the la bor done by those who “watch the stars out by the bed of pain.” For the large masses of the girlhood and womanhood the arena of commer cial life has widened its doors, and evidence is seen on all hands of the efficiency of the new female re cruits to the business ranks. Their presence In this great army of stren uous endeavor will tend to purify and strengthen It, and make it worthier than it has ever been before. The prizes are many, but those who do not gain them must not be disheart ened. The very striving after them stiffens the fiber. “The athlete ma tured for the Olympian game gains strength at least for life.” While I have dwelt in this short review of woman’s progress on the more expert phases of her career, It must be pointed out that ability is not the be-all and the end-all of wom an’s existence. It is the great lever that moves things, but another qual ity is required for the settling down. Greater than all her accomplish ments is her capacity for shedding around her wherever she goes the fragrance of a sweet and beautiful life, and smoothing out the raveled sleeve of care. It is in the belief that she is fully capable of this mission that one looks forward in confidence to the immediate future —a future in which the pulse of vibrant life will throb sympathetically and intellectual ly to the ultimate benefit of the whole of the community. •••••••••••••••••••••••••a • • • Thoughts for New Year • •••••••••••••••••••••••••• “Resolve and resolve and still go on the same?” Nay!

Obligations to home, to bus iness relations, to the proper demand of your church and social environ ment, to civic and patriotic responsi bilities.

BY GEORGE ELMER COBB. “And I hereby bequeath and devise to my nephews, Ralph Davis and Jonas Greer, the house on Main street and the house on Railroad street, my trustees to make the choice of award ing the same.” The lawyer read this extract from the will of old Peter Davis in a sing song tone. There was a long sigh of relief from Jonas Greer, and a pleased expression on the face of Ralph Davis. Good old Uncle Peter had not forgot ten them, even if he had given a goodly portion of his worldly goods to charity. “Further,” the lawyer continued his reading, “the first one of said nephews making five thousand dollars, the same shall be received in full pay ment for the old homestead.” There was due speculation among the gossips of Brandon for a week aft er that, as to which of the fortunate heirs of old Peter Davis would receive the best property award. The place on Main street was the choice of the two residences. The house was modern, the neighbors were of the best social set in the village, the street was paved. The Railroad street place held a neat but old-fash ioned cottage. Main street was a broad tree-fringed thoroughfare. Rail road street had half of its area taken up by tracks, sidings and freight houses. The Greers had no children. There were two pretty, curly headed tots in the Davis family. After thinking and debating over the matter at the end of a week the trustees of the Davis estate awarded the Main street property to the Greers. ‘‘lt’s a burning shame. Ralph!” said outspoken Mrs. Davis. ‘‘There is no right or justice to it. Everybody knows it, everybody is scandalized.” “Oh, we’re property owners now, and shouldn’t complain,” reminded her hus band in a pleasant way. “But think of it —the Greers have no children, and we have. It is dan gerous for them so near the railroad “Here Is a Little Paper to Sign.” tracks. Besides that, this property isn’t worth half as much as the Main street place.” “Well,” rejoined Ralph, “I under stand that John Moore, one of the trustees, is wearing anew diamond pin, and they say that Greer present sd it to him. Let it go. When I look around and see how cozy you’ve made the place here, I feel as if it is a kind of palace.” “Oh, Ralph, you are so easily satis Bed,” sighed Mrs. Davis. “That’s because I’ve got what Greer can’t scheme for and get.” “What’s that?” “You and the children,” cried the big hearted fellow, and his wife re -1 turned his bouncing kiss with a proud end happy face. “I suppose the next thing we know,” she said, “Greer will scheme to get the fifty thousand dollar homestead for that five thousand dollars. He’ll raise it among his friends.” “No, he can’t do that,” dissented Ralph. “He has to ‘make’ it. I’ll let you into a secret, Madge, dear; lam going to work and scrimp and save to laise that money. The Greers won’t. They are going in for society in their new home. Sort of look down on us back street folks. So, they spend all they get.” Ralph’s loyal little wife had a good deal of humiliation to subdue for a time. Mrs. Greer began to take to herself a certain social importance. | People who were cads ignored the j back street home. The yards of the | two houses adjoined at the rear. First Mrs. Greer pitied her humbler neigh bor. Then she was indulgent. Final ly she ignored her. Ralph worked hard. His life was centered In his j home, and his sterling, steadfast faith j In the future began to influence his S wife. One day he came some In the middle of the day. This was an un- j usual thing for him. His wife looked alarmed and then curious, for her hus band’s cheery face was wreathed with imiles. **Wcll, I reckon we ll have to move,” be announced. “Move!

If we hold back, the property will be condemned anyway, so w had better close the bargain. They mrm paying a* a big price.” “Bat to tear up, when we are so nicely settled here!” M A§ well as the Greers?” inquired Ralph archly. “Yes, we are!” declared the staunch little woman. "It’s been just delight ful, and we have made it a real home.** "Well, the new one may suit you better,” predicted the husband. “la fact, Madge, I have decided to buy the old homestead.” "Why, where, how can you get ftre thousand dollars?” “The railroad company are giving us twelve thousand dollars. It is three times the value of this place, but they must have it That leaves us seven thousand dollars and what I*re saved to begin anew life in grand style.” The delighted little woman broke down and cried for sheer joy. About all the family did that eve ning was to scan the prospect before them and plan out the golden life of fered ahead. The old Davis homestead was a regal place—a roomy, comfort able house with beautiful gardens and a small farm area behind it sufficient to pay the expenses of living. The next morning Mrs. Greer met her neighbor on the street. The latter noticed that she scanned her last sear son’s dress rather keenly. Then, when she heard that the Greers were giving a large party and she was not invited. Mrs. Davis realized that the upstart Greer family were ashamed of their supposedly humble friends of former times. The whole town knew of what they called their good luck, one morning. The sale of the little house on Rail road street was the gossip of the vil lage. Jonas Greer heard of It with a sense of indignation. He felt wronged. Then he suddenly recalled a certain scheme ending in a bribe, and kept his conclusion to himself. Glum and sullen Mrs. Greer grew sharp voiced and thin over "the freak of chance” that had placed her de spised neighbor in affluence. She suf fered worse when anew humiliation faced her. The railroad people pro ceeded to build their noisy, smoke producing shops within fifty feet of the Greer residence. In the meantime the social strivings of the Greers had led them to mort gage their home. Then came the crisis. They sold their equity In the place for a song, and went to live in a rented flat. Ralph Davis had too good a heart to | neglect a relative and he placed the Greers again on their feet In a sub stantial way. His pensioners, however, never failed to exploit "the advantage taken of them” by the whole souled fellow who understood how to enjoy prosperity because he had known ad versity. (Copyright. 1912. by W. Q. Chapman.) He Pleaded Both Ways. Sheridan Master, former speaker of the Michigan house of representa tives, tells the following story of one of his early cases as a lawyer: A negro was arrested for stealing a calf and the court appointed Mr. Master to defend him. The colored man had never talked to a lawyer before and didn’t fancy the Idea very much, preferring to try the case him self. After a short conference between Mr. Master and the negro the court asked the negro how he would plead. The latter rose slowly and said: “Jedge, your honoh, I pleads not guilty on advice of my attorney, but I ain't got no faith In any attorney; so. I’ll tell you, jedge, dat I done stole de calf and I throws myself on de mercy of de court.” —Richmond Times Dispatch. Had All Kinds of Money, Literally. Black dropped into White’s office and invited him to dinner, stating that he had “all kinds of money.” White accepted the invitation, and they dined well —so well that when the check was presented to Black he gasped, and in a hoarse whisper re quested a loan of White. ‘‘This check amounts to $4.50,’’ he explained, ‘‘and I’ve got only $1.91.” "You said you had all kinds of money!” White replied disgustedly. “So I have,” Black replied, with drawing his possessions from his pocket. “I’ve got a dollar bill, a 50- cent piece, a quarter, a dime, a nickel and a penny.

SOMETHING ABOUT FATS. The difference between fats and oils Is that oil is liquid at ordinary temperature. Olive oil is our choicest oil, but too expensive to use in cook ery In this country. When unadul terated, it has a sweet, nutty, pleas ant flavor, which Is so well liked by those who get good oil. The greatest reason for the dislike of olive oil which so many people express, is the Inferior stuff with which they kave been served. Cotton seed oil Is one of our great exports to the southern countries of Europe, and returns to us at many times its original value as "pure olive oil.” Cotton seed oil Is excellent for many uses, and when it is mixed with suet Is called cottolene or cottosuet. Butterine or oleomargarine Is made from the oily part of beef and pork fat churned with milk, mixed with but ter to give It flavor, salted and col ored. Good butterine is clean, wholesome and nutritious, and so like good but ter that It Is not easy to tell the dif ference. Being cheap. It should be sold cheap, but poor butter still leads It in price. Fat being a heat giver, we know why we enjoy fats In meat, and more fatty foods during the cold months, although even in the tropics fat is used largely on rice. So we find that in all climates it is necessary for the maintenance of the bodily functions. It is a noticeable fact that thin, delicate girls and women have an an tipathy for fat meat, and often any kind of fat. They are the ones who especially need it, and it should bo given them In such a form that it will be tempting and digestible. Fav,s undergo less change in the alimentary canal than other foods. By various processes the fat is so finely divided that it is taken up by the blood a id the lacteals. Fried foods and pastry are hard to digest because the particles of fat cover the starch and proteld so that such foods are not exposed to the action of the digestive juices, causing I indigestion and more serious dls- I turbances.
