SeR HAVEN'T any "little girl"
With eyes alight witr glee,
And hair In many a dancing curl,
Her happy heart carefree,
he started off to school today
And mama's heart is sore;
"Our baby's gone," I hhea r say;
"Our little girl no more."
'We lost our little girl today.
With eager, hurrying feet
She sped with laughter light and gay
Along the busy street.
And watching her a mother's eyes
Grew moist with unshed tears
Is backward now her mem'ry fles
Through quickly vanished years.
We lost our little girl today.
With lightly tripping feet
She hurries on her schoolward way
Far down the city street.
But though the years speed swiftly by
Shell be, however, fast they fly,
"My little girl" to me.

SWANT HVIAT YOU NEED
PHILOSOPHERS tell us we can
have anything we want, provided
we want It enough.
With certain qualifications this la
true. It explains why many men gel
things out of life that their friends
aever expected to get. They wanted
them, and they got them.
Getting things in that way to: most
people Involves considerable sacrifice
For example, If a dry goods clerk
wants an automobile he may get it,
but he will have to skimp pretty heav.
py on his clothes, and d!et if he gets
It while he still remains a dry goods
It is for this reason that when you
begin wanting something, It will pay
yon to want what you need.
That will Involve thought, or none
Of us know what we need uLtil we
devote considerable time to reflection
There are men who want new wives,
when they have perfectly good wives
at home. They don't deed them, and
therefore ought not to want them.
There are other men who want
wealth, when they don't need wealth.
Still other men want steam yachts
when row boats would do them more
good, and private swimming pools
when they would get more fuan and
health out t publle baths In the

The wanting habit can grow Into a
very bad habit, indeed, unless you are
careful to want what you need.
It is well to remember in this con
nection that there are some very Im
portant needs that you ought to want
first of all.
One of them Is a good reputation.
Another is good health. A third is
Want these badly enough to get
them, and confine your wants after
that to things that are reasonably
certain to bring happiness.
Then want as ha.d as you like, and
your wanting will not hurt you.
Want what you need and you will
be reasonably sure to get It, if you
begin young enough. But don't want
what you don't need. It will only
make you miserable for life, even
though you attain the object of your

ROMANCE OF WORDS :
SIGNIFYING( literally "con- .
fetctionelry," this Italian i
" word was originally applied to
the small hard bon-bons former- 4
ly thrown during the carnival
days in Rlome, Naples and other 4
cities in the southern section of
Europe. These candies are 4
known as coriandoll, and the
term "confetti" is applied to the
& cheaper and more popular sub
stitutes-hard pellets about the
size of a hailstone which are
carried In bags by the masked
revellers and thrown from tin
The custom of throwing con.
fetti was Introduced into France
several centuries ago, and was
especially popular at the fetes 4
of Mi-Careme (Mid-Lent) and
Mardi-Gras (Shrove Tuesday).
But the French, possibly be
cause they took their pleasure 4
less seriously than the Italians,
substituted bits of gaily colored
paper for the hard pebbles or
candies. .nd when the custom
was introduced into the United
States by the French settlers of
Louisiana and other sections.
confetti was understood to mean 1
only the scraps of paper.
The amount of confetti used
In Paris Is apparent from an
account of one of the Mardi
Gras celebrations, when it was
estimated by one of the local
newspapers that 1,300.000
pounds were sold during the
three days preceding Ash Wed
aesday. At an average price
of twenty cents a pound. some
$800,000 was spent upon this
form of amusement alone.
