You are at the cross roads of
life. There are two paths open to
you. One leads to your independ
ence, the other to dependency.You
are to choose, not next year, not
next mouth, but now, which of
these roads you prefer to travel.
One requires effort, the other in
difference. To travel one must
have a real back bone and deter
mination, the other, a s.ring for a
back bone, and indifference will
do. Some girls say, "The lion is
in the way." These girls lack
gumption, get-up-and-get, they
reason that if so-and-so and such

great success. The lion is in the

entered into their daily life and
robbed them of their vim and cour

The Legend of
Perhaps you have heard the le
gend of St. Valentine, but if you
hat-e not, here it is in as small a
nutshell as such a saint could he
well condensed: St. Valentine lived
long ago. An emperor ruled him,
and the emperor whose name was
claudius,became very jealous of St.
Valentine or Fr. Valentine as hle
was then called. And one day
Claudius cut Fr. Valentine's head
off and banished his remains, so
that nobody should know that he
had been beheaded. Now why did
Claudius do this; you ask. Well,he
did it because Fr. Valentine be
came so great a favorite with the
young people that Claudius was
not in their affections at all. But
how did Valentine make himself
such a favorite; you still query
Why, how indeed? How do you
suppose? How does any man or
woman either for that matter, be
come solid with people young?
Why, by helping along their love
affairs, to be sure, and by giving
them evry opportunity to be alone
and talk it over. Now,Fr.Valentine
was a born matchhmaker and he
was and he was always busy mak
ing matches. If he saw two young
people looking at each other with
sheepish eyes, he cast his toga his
head and sat still, never stirring
for five minutes.
And so Fr.Valentine got himself
disliked by the Emperor Claudius
and after Claudius had cut his head
off the young people canonized
him, and, upon the good old
s"aint's birthday, would exchange
little love tokens just to keep his
memory green. The people who
I had known St. Valentine when
on earth told their children about
him in after years, and their chil
r dren told their children's children
) and so it has come down to us
) through many children of children.

Croup and Whooping Cough.
Mrs. T. Neurener, uan Claire, Wis..
says: "'Fole's Honey and Tar Compound
cared my boy of a very severe attack of
crop after other remedies had failed.
Our milkman cured hischildren of whoop
ing cough." Foley's has a forty years
record of similar cases. Contains no
opiates. Always insist on Folev's. Sold

In England, Scotland. France
and some other parts of the con..
tinent it was formerly the custom
of the young people to meet, write
each other's or some of their ac
quaintances' name a slip of paper
which were thrown into a box from
which they were drawn, the men
taking the girls' names and vice
versa. "The person thus draw
ing became one's valentine and for
a whole year was bound to devote
himself to the one who drew him.
Sometimes, of course, this lead to
real engagements between the par.
ties, and often tricks were played
in such a way that the slips of
paper fell into hands they were
meant for. During the fifteenth
:ntury married people could be
chosen as well as those who were
sot married and often very valuable
resets were exchangedi
