J UST when or under what circura- | stances the expression "facing the ; if music," originated is, so far as I know, unrelated history, but one thing is ! certain, It is one of the most exprès- j ,,n slve of the many pungent American isms that a nation apt in coining phrases has originated. I suspect that it had some sort of a military application In the begin ning, that it meant that a soldier should always face the front where the band was playing and where the action was going on. • • • There are, as I understand It, only two explanations for a soldier being shot in the back. One Is that one of his own men, too excited to take proper aim, wound ed him unintentionally. The other is that he had his back to the enemy and was running away. The fellow that Is facing the music never gets hit In the back. That Is Just as true off the field of battle as It Is on it. And It proves that there Is only one way to fight and that Is facing the tlie squarely. • • • You never can evade REAL trou You may defeat It. You may what seems Insuperable. But to do that you have to FIGHT It, not FEAR It. - And the best way to battle any thing Is to face It squarely, fight It fairly. If you ever saw two boxers In the ring and one of them fought with the side of his body towards the other, you will have noticed perhaps that the man who fought sideways never landed a blow with the hand that was farthest from his opponent. If he tried to strike with It hls competitor knew long enough In ad vance to thoroughly guard himself against its effects. The well-trained boxer faces the music. He stands squarely In front of hls adversary where either hand will have to travel the shortest pos sible distance to land. • • • The man who turns away from trouble, who thinks to escape It by avoidance, who doesn't face It brave ly and manfully Indicates a lack of courage and an absence of judgment. Nothing will give your adversary more encouragement than the evi dence which you may display of a desire to quit. Many a man has won a fight nfter be has lost It simply because hls op ponent gave up when he was not de feated. There was only one man on the ships of Cotumbus who really made the trip from .Spain to the new world and that was Columbus himself. All the others quit days before the shore of San Salvador was sighted. Col umbus won because he never turned hls back to the dangers, never took his eyes from looking forward, he always faced the music. There are two splendid memorials to this exhibition of sheer courage. One Is the statue of Columbus in front of the great terminal station nt Wash ington ; the other the inspiring poem "Sail On" by Joaquin Miller.

Mr. Possum said he would and that he would store them safely away un der a rock by his house where there was a cave. Mr. Fox trotted back and forth all night with fat chickens which he put In the cave under the rock, but he did not know that ns fast as he put them away Mr. Possum carried them to an other part of the woods. When It was almost daylight Mr. Possum took another chicken nnd de parted for good, and when Mr. Fox looked into the cave lie found only a few of the many chickens he had placed there. Mr. Possum was nowhere to be found. He had moved bag and bag gage to another home, but Mr. Fox hunted until he found him, and the trouble began.

BCENTLY at a sliver wedding anniversary of a prominent New Yorker the Inventions, which were engraved in silver, contained these words nt one side : "The demands of war relief are pressing. We hope for your presence—not presents—at our silver wedding anniversary." Among the guests present at this anniversary reception were scores of New York's most noted society folk, the very people whom we usually look to for leadership in such matters of social usage. So if you are looking for a precedent in adding to your invita tions for anniversary receptions or other occasions when presents might lie expected some indication of the fact thnt you would prefer not to have them, here It Is. The fact is thnt often people re frain from having wedding anniver sary parties for the simple reuson flint" they hesitate to send Invitations thnt will make the recipients feel that they are obliged to make some sort of present. When tills is for u tin or wooden wedding the obligation Is trifling, but when it Is for a silver or golden wedding then there is more cause for tills hesitancy.
