as I gazed I heard a voice, "Good

but nineteen forty-three.
Said I: "My memory has failed

I gazed, and to my great surprise
distinctly saw them walking. I listened
at another tube and there I heard
"You see," said he, "we've learned
to catch such swift, intense vibrations
in the thin ether that we hear their
slightest intonations. You look sur
prised," my son went on. "I'll show
those eyes of yours a sight worth

"Now, mother, we will go and lunch

out his watch he said, "I see there's
ample time. The sub-Atlantic tunnel's
done we'll take it over there. The
cars are sent through every hour by
the force of compressed air." He
placed me on a cushioned seat within
an egg-shaped car, suspended in nn

then, to my astonishment, conscious of
nothing more, I found that we were
standing upon the farther shore.
And soon we reacheo a city near
the Mountains of the Moon. (They
told me Ethiopia would be admitted

China late had been.) We found a

BANISH THAT STRAW MAN
Supposing you thought you had been
able to ward off all bad luck during the
coming year by merely throwing a
straw image out of your house on the
last day of December. You would
have thrown out not only one Image,
but a dozen. And supposing that with
the discarding of the straw effigy you
had thrown away all your sins. This
is what the people of far-away Korea
believe. On the day before New Year's
the wise and far-seeing head of each
family carefully makes a rough Image
of straw, which, with great ceremony,
is taken to the door and thrown away
with all the vigor a man would exert
when he threw away ill fortune.
NEW YEAR OF ANCIENTS
The ancient Egyptians, Phoenicians
and Persians began their new year at
the autumnal solstice (September 21)
and the Greeks, until the Fifth century,
B. C., began the year at he winter
solstice (December 21). In 432, B. O,,
the Greeks changed the festival to June
21, the beginning of summer.

HE matter with Andrews is that
he cannot keep upon any one
He tacks all over the
bay but does not make any port. Shift
ing as a weather vane, he is as con
tradictory. He started upon the road
to a profession, but landed in a brick
making concern. Then he concluded
that he was meant for big business,
but he tried to start too high up. A
chicken farm was his next employ
ment and it netted hiin a large amount
of costly experience. He now thinks
of trying mining, but will undoubtedly
dig up disnster. If he ends as a good
shoeblack It will be at the bottom,
where he ought to have begun, and he
will be nearer to true progress.
The tug boat that was proceeding up
the river was named "Patience." It
was tugging a long following of canal
boats at a slow pace. It was making
Its way towards a definite point and
over a prescribed and limited course.
And it was going to get there. All Its
energy was pledged to perseverance
in the practice of the proverb, "It's
doggedness as does it." The eagle
over the pilot house had its wings
spread, although it could not fly yet.
The boy who stood at the bow said,
"I'm only a ship's boy now, but I'll be
a man tomorrow."
Can success find such a leap year as
will enable it to land at the end of a
twelvemonth without plodding towards
It from its beginning? Is there any
recipe that will enable a young fellow
like Andrews to obtain his father's
position and wealth without pursuing
his father's path of long and patient
toll? Must not the well of a bucket
shop run dry? Can a gambler finally
break the hank?
And can a Jaok-at-all-trades be a
master of any? No! The times call
for specialists, rather than general
practitioners. It will be a New Year
indeed for everything in general when
it becomes something in particular.
Better the patient, persistent tug boat
than the more exciting but less profit
able airplane. The ship's boy of today
must precede the captain of tomorrow.
NEW YEAR'S CALLS
From old Dutch times to the middle
of the Nineteenth century New Year's
day in many American cities was de
voted to the universal interchange of
visits. Every door was thrown open
and it was a breach of etiquette to
omit any acquaintance In the annual
calls, when old friendships were re
newed and family differences amicably

gifts on New Year day, which originat

and Scotland, although In most coun
