ijiSense ♦♦ ♦ I BLAKE || ANALYZE MISTAKES ■\JI7HEN you make a mistake, find vv out why you made ft. Think It over a few minutes. Fix In your mind the manner In which It happened. Be ashamed of It, If It Is a bad mistake. Scare yourself about It, If It Is a dangerous one. The child never forgets the mistake he makes when he puts his finger In the fire. That mistake he has to think about for a long time afterward. One of the kind is always enough for him. Admiral Peary’s Eskimo dogs made the mistake of eating all that was given them when they were encamped In the Arctic regions waiting for one of his dashes to the pole. Apparently they remembered that mistake when tlie food ran out and some of their number had to be eaten. When the survivors of the pack re turned to America they were very sparing of the food that was given them, and buried the remainder. More than that they scoured the neighbor hood for food to bury. They had had time to think over their mistakes. Most people have much the same sort of work to do every working day. Those who do not think over their mistakes continue to make them and Something to Think About By F. A. WALKER RESTRAIN YOUR SPEECH ■\X7IIEN Inclined to speak of n * • person’s faults, though he or she may be unfriendly towards you, restrain yourself, and think of your own shortcomings. Then, If you are a charitable soul, you will turn your conversation into another channel where there are no hidden dangers and go sailing under clear skies In joyous sunshine. One thoughtless, impulsive, slan derous word spoken in the presence of othets, and particularly In the hear kkig of those given to gossip and dis posed to magnify what they hear, may ruin an innocent man or woman for life. Clean your own house before you sot about the task of cleaning the house of your neighbor. Purge your own soul of shortcom ings and you will find yourself so busy In doing It that you will not have time nor Inclination to discuss the defects of others. “Let him without sin,” said the Master of Men, “cast the first stone." And the accusers of a hapless woman stole away, one by one. • • * Your faults and my faults have come down to us through the ages. So, let us always curb our speech, wherever we may be and think noble thoughts Instead of the kind that de base others and ourselves us well. Aside from the good policy of speak ing no evil, there comes to the man or woman who may adopt It, a divine sense of serene happiness that cheers our way like the stars of night. And another thing that accompanies such a course Is the ability to make friends and hold thenj in all sons of weather. H MOTHER’S mm I COOK BOOK g| With weights and measures just and true.

CANDIES FOR THE CHILDREN A T ALL times of the year the chll ** dren clamor for candy, hut during the cold weather it is more frequently made in the home. Opera Fondant.

Cover with a damp cloth and leave for half an hour. Then knead and mold with the hands until smooth, adding such flavoring and col oring as desirect and pack In a crock. Cover closely and leave until wanted. Opera Bonbons. Divide opera fondant Into several portions, flavor each and color, then for the mos| part they always stay where they are. Men who make the same mistakes twice never get the confidence of an employer. Those who think about their mis takes, and find out ways to eliminate them, are those who get along. It Is better to discover your own mistakes than to wait for the boss to discover them. Discover them early, and you can do without them the next time. Go over your work. If It Is not up to the mark that you ought to make, you have either made Important mis takes, or wasted time, which In It self is an Important mistake. Think about that. Let It sink Into your soul. Think how It held your work back, and what the repetition of It will do life’s work. This may not contribute to your re pose the night you are thinking about It, but It will make you sleep better for many a night to come. Perfec tion Is the absence of mistakes. We cannot any of us achieve It, but we can all achieve a pretty fair substitute by cutting mistakes to the minimum. (Copyright.)
