Do your best all the time, nnd even if you do make a few mistake:;, you can tell your critics to, go to blazes. You put 'a mij.;hty low valuation on your jewelry when the assessor comes around. But a pawnbroker will an even lower valuation on it when you try to hock it. Some men would give a lot to be able to remember. And ronie tne'i would give more to be able to for get.

A boy's idea of happiness is to have all the ice cream and cuke lv.' can eat. And a girl's ide i of happi ness is have all the nice clothes she can wear. Sometimes a canvasser makes a sale at a house door and credits his salesmanship with the order, when the truth of the matter is that the woman gave him an order because his eyes reminded her of one of her ooys who left home and hasn't heard from since.

HIST URGES BOND SALE During Civil War Need Was Great, but Financial System Did Not Equal Present. By William Chauncey Langdon. L. E. Chittenden, Lincoln's Register of the Treasury, tells In this "Personal Recollections of President Lincoln" cf the anonymous Englishman who came forward la 18G2 to lend the United Btates $5,000,000, and the herculean efforts made to repay him. British shipbuilders were construct ing two armored vessels tor the Con federacy.: Our Minister, Charles Fran cis Adams, secured the issue of a re straining order just in time, but it could not be enforced until damages bad been secured by the deposit of $5,000,000 sterling in gold coin, with gold at 160! Where could he get it? There was no trans-Atlantic caule then. "When he had given up all hope of arresting these vessels, a quiet gentleman called upon him and asked if he might be favored with the oppor tunity of making the deposit of coin required by the order." The only con dition was that his name should not be made known. In this war many Englishmen and others whose names we do not know have supplied us with money or its value with munitions, and men, and safety, and immunity from German attack. To this, our blood-bought benefit, hundreds of thousands of anonymous Englishmen and Frenchmen and Ital ians and Belgians have contributed. Shall we not repay them promptly In kind by coming to their aid with money and munitions and ships and men, to the safety from German fury of those who remain, or of their widows and children? This will cost! Will YOU helpT How much? How soon! Buy a Lib erty Bond and thus pay a little toward the freedom you have enjoyed thus far, as well as contribute toward the Insuring of a like freedom and, we trust, of an even greater liberty for all in the years to come!
