"Some one who deacrlbed himself
anonymously as 'one who 1ms laugh

me a poem which contains all the
philosophy of health and happiness.
I should like to know who wrote It.
Don't you think a lot of good would
come of makliiK an endlesN letter

"Are you worsted In a flgnt?
Are you cheated of your right?
Laugh it off,
Don't mnke tragédien of trifles, I
Don't shoot butterflies with rifles—j
Laugh It off.
Does your work get Into kinks?
Are you near all sort of brinks?
Laugh It off.
If It's sanity you're after,
There's no receipt like la.ighter—
