Prospects for an actlvo week in the bay are icod, as there are three steam ships ready to start to work Monday morning, each of them, to give work , to more than half a hundred baymen. As this woik will last through the coming week, things are to be lively .here for the time being, at least. Three .steamers are ready for cargo today, and cargo for' each of them is being , assembled, so there will be no delay ,; Monday morning, if the weather is good. The uteamships August Ieffler, at Muscogee wharf; the Ros'.cok, at Per dldo wharf; the Competitor, at Tar ragona wharf, are the vessels to start taking lumber and timber. The Au gust Leffler worked half a day Sat urday with two gangs, but the full four hatches will be "turned to" on Monday morning. The Competitor, which reached port Saturday after noon, will load for Alexandria, and will start work . tomorrow morning. The 'Jtostock, which will be docked at Per dldo wharf this morning, will also be reaay to worn - tomorrow, uargo ror .thin VABflat ( at alrAaHv An ro rm & nH within easy reach of the ship's tackle.

Doctors said my only hope of cure was an operation. Trusses did me no good. Finally I got hold of something that quickly and com pletely cured me. Tears have passed and the rupture has never returned, although I am doing hard work as a carpenter. There was no operation, no lost time, no trouble. I have nothing to sell, but will give full information about how you may find a complete cure without operation, if you write to me. Eugene M. Pullen. Carpenter, 856 Marcellus Avenue, Manaa quan, N.

ACOniENT COTTON ON THE STEAMSHIP IDA SEVEN THOUSAND BALES WERE EXPORTED TO LIVERPOOL VALUABLE CARGO ON SPANISH STEAMER. Seven thevsand bales of cotton were exported on the Spanish steamship Ida, which cleared and sailed yester day for Liverpool. This was the larg est of the late shipments of the staple from Pensacola, and was valued at $365,831. The entire cargo on this steamer, which consisted of a num ber of articles, was valued at $437,166, the most valuable cargo exported dur ing the present month. Among the vessel's cargo was a consignment of 2,208 pigs of copper. The next cotton shipment from this port of &.ny consequence Is listed for the steamship August Belmont, which is on her way here from Baltimore, having left that port FebrJu--The Belmont will load out foil Another lot of cotton, wn!T3Tsied for Liverpool, will be exported on the steamship El O. Saltmarsh, which is due the latter half of February. "It's easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows by like a song; But the man worth while is the maa with a smile When everything goes dead wrong." Optimism Is the habit of looking on the bright side. i Pessimism is the habit of looking on the dark side. The pessimist sees only the cloud. The optimist pees the silvr-r lining. He knows the cloud is there all right' but he looks at it from the proper angle and with a smiling face and he catches the reflection of his own smile. In a previous article I commented upon various kinds of contagion, in cluding laughter, bravery, fear and anger, all of which are contagious by the force of EXAMPLE. Reflection along this line reveals an overwhelming responsibility upon each of us towards our fellow humans. ! As example is a mighty force, we need to be perpetually careful how we exercise it Walk down the street and meet 'smiling faces; and, unless your liver Is at war with you, you'll smile with out considering why; but, if you meet sour, grouchy faces, It wor.'t be so easy to smile, and you'll possibly feel sour without knowing why. Example therefore must be remem bered all the time. We need to bot'le up troubles which can't be remedied and cork them tight, or they'll spill around like ink and discolor everything within reach Optimism promotes remedies for troubles. Pessimism does but aggravate troubles. We can cultivate which we choose. If you prefer melons why cultivate lemons? If the world has handed you a lemon what's the use of cultivating it and water' rig it with the tears of self-pity? Optimism can be cultivated .until It becomes a HABIT, and habit is only a matter of time. A baseball pitcher practices a cer tain twist of the ball many hundreds of times until it becomes a habit. We practice all kinds of actions, such as the motions in swimming, the steer ing of an automobile, the balancing of i v ' - v y - jut A vj Asr-X- f v S t J PROF.

So he conserves his energy and maintains his sanity, yet accomplishes his ends. As this method succeeds in dealing with ordinary business so it will suc ceed in dealing with troubles. With your list of troubles before you and your determination made to deal with them in a businesslike way your troubles are already half over come, for a job well begun is half done. Why am I discussing troubles? Because pessimism is the cause as well as the result of allowing troubles the body on one leg at a time in walk- to fester; a double barrelled gun di rected against yourself; whilst opti mism is a mainspring Inducing and PLUNGED NAIL INTO HIS FOOT W.

Did it ever occur to you to write a list of your troubles? I'll bet you never did. Just take a pencil and paper and sit down in front of yourself and say, "NOW, MY FRIEND, WHAT ARE YOUR TROUBLES?"

The pessimist lives In his own little hell. The optimist dreams of heaven. How is a pessimist to become an op timist? By the seme means a drunkard be comes temperate; or a man of vio lent temper becomes reasonable; or a spendthrift becomes a sa'er. with com fortable possessions, and an easy mind. Here we are drawn back to our 'fipr-ri HA PIT: commencing with DE TERMINATION, APPLICATION AND PATIENCE. And, !f habit Is to help us to be op timists, the question arises how long does it take to form a habit? It depends upon the habit. Also It depends upon the Individual. Again, It depends upon the handi cap. Sweeping lfs and buts aside, how- jever, let's recognize that all possible action can become habit, the length of time required to form the habit varying with the conditions. This is a pafe and sound proposition.

Of couree optimism is a branch of Philosophy; and no kind of philosophy is worth a cent unless It is put to practical use. Trouble time is test time. Studying philosophy Is like prepar ing for war In time of peace. If troubles ceased philosophy would cease. Hence acquiring optimism means preparing for trouble. j We have all heard that clever lit- tie sentence "never trouble trouble 'till If you must have your meat every day, eat it, but flush your kidneys with salts occasionally says a noted auth ority who tells us that meat forms uric acid which almost paralyzes the kid neys in their efforts to expel It from the blood. They become sluggish and weaken then you suffer with a dul misery in the kidney region sharp pains in the back or sick headache, dizziness, your stomach sours, tongut is coated and when the weather la bad you have rheumatic twinges.

If he can stand to his guns and grin and bear for a little While, however, he will soon feel a sense of WINNING. That will give him courage. If he backslides It will mean be ginning all over again; but. If he grits his teeth and hangs on tight, the law which hindered him will relax and the law of good habit will begin to help. Each day of continued grip will find him one day further from his old self, one day stronger, one day nearer to the formed habit. Those early days are precious days and they are hard days. take the precaution to be always pre pared for trouble. We have also heard that our great est troubles are those which never come; the trouble consisting of fear jof the coming. Fear is a destroyer of energy, and he who spends' his energy fearing trouble will have no energy to meet it when It comes. The optimist escapes all that. He has formed the habit of looking for the rllver lining; and, no matter how dark the cloud, he Invariably sees the bright side. Habit helps him and prevents fear from hindering him. He is the man who wins out whilst others go under in a crisis. His habitual loeoayioesaay Special Sale of High Shoes for Ladies and Children act fine.
