Now let us make our minds a hope box, to keep all of the nice things that we know and hear of each other. And good books arc good things to keep in our hope box, you know they never talk back or repeat what we say or think about them and we should take pleasure in letting our friends know what wc have in. our hope 'box, whenever the occasion demands it. The other box is a locked box—our lips arc the lids; our tongues the key. In this box we should put all the mean, ugly things we hear or know of others; put them in quick, shut the lid down tight, and lock, for the more they arc aired,- the larger they grow, but if kept from being aired, they will sooi> smoulder away and save many a char acter. business and home. Fix these two boxes and use them and keep the key yourself. * JUST PLAIN JANE. NEWSY NOTES ' FROM MASON -- I Mrs. Roy Kidder, accompanied by j her children. Lcola and Sheldon, left j Sunday for Peoa.
