Oyster Bay, L. I President Roose velt delivered a Fourth of July ora- ion to his townspeople in a natural amphitheater in a grove at Oyster tT Addressing his auditors as "my ip. friends and neighbors, you among rhons I was brought up and among rhom I have lived for so many years,1 the president said it was a great pleas lire to be here and say a few words Of greeting and in a sense to give an account of his stewardship. Mr. Roose jrelt said that while there were two 6r three things which he wanted to lalk about, he would take for his text Jthe words of Abraham Lincoln just after his election: "In any great national trial here after the men of that day as compared jwith those of this will be as weak and as strong, as base and as good Let us therefore study for the future, ?A.nd later: "So long as I have been here I have not planted a thorn in any man's bosom." Speaking on the conditions at the time when Lincoln spoke these words. the president said it was possible for iincoln to say with entire truth that he bore no rancor and did his work without hatred to the doer of evil. Lincoln did not treat anything that was done ' against him as a wrong calling for vengeance, but for a de mand, and it is in just that spirit, the president said, that the American people must approach their problems of today. "We have not as great problems as Lincoln had," he said. "but we have problems and the way we face them will leave our children cause for pride or for shame. If citi zens of Lincoln's time had not done their duty we could not have held up our heads today." (Hear, hear, came from the assembled crowd). M. G. Rohrbough, president Omaha Commercial College, Prof, of the says: "We are in the midst of a very prosperous era. Te demand for high grade help is an infallible barometer that registers not only the necessi ties, but the expectations of business men. In more than twenty years of constant contact with employers, have never known the demand for competent young people to be so large. We cannot begin to supply our requests for strictly first class stenographers and bookkeepers. The most notable thing about tnese re quests is that employers are more ex acting in their requirements than they used to be, but while they exact more they are willing to pay more. "The demand for young lady ste nographers is large, but the requests for thoroughly competent male ste nographers is unprecedented. Last year was the largest in our history, We expect a "Very large enrollment this fall. Fortunately,., we are now in our large, new building, and have ample room for the future. "To an outsider, running a commer cial college may seem an easy prop osition; I have found it a strenuous one. The responsibility of caring for a large number of young people is very great; while it brings many pleasures it imposes some burdens. The ambitious ones never give us ser ious trouble but the sluggards often do.

A RECENT LETTER. A recent letter received from Mr. and Mrs. Campbell is, as follows: "We still use Peruna and in addition to our eon, Gerald, who i a fat and eaucy lad of 28 months, we have another eon, still larger for his age. He is now ten months old and is always healthy. "His mother says Peruna has surely made both of our children as healthy as Peruna Once Used In The Family, Becomes a Permanent Fixture. they are, helped, of course by Colorado's healthy air. "A bottle of Peruna is at all times a welcome visitor to our home." A multitude of families hare discov ered that Peruna is their standby. In all the catarrhal ailments which are likely to beset the various members of the family, Peruna is the remedy that brings quick relief. No matter whether it be a catarrhal condition of the head or lungs, or a de rangement of the stomach and bowels, . Peruna is the remedy. the latter kind.

THE PECTORAL FINS Without Them the Fish Would Stand on Its Head The pectoral fins of a fish are the two fins, one on each side, just back of the head. These fins aid the fish to some extent in swimming. They are small oars which the fish feathers very beautifully and are of value chiefly to preserve its equilibrium. It s with these fins that the fish main tains its horizontal position in the water when not swimming. Without them the fish would stand on its head. Sometimes a fish loses one or both of its pectoral- fins by disease or by accident. A fish without pectoral fins is in a bad way. WThile most fishes keep a horizontal position in the water when not swim ming, there are fishes that do not. One of these fishes is the fileflsh, which when motionless suspends itself in the water, head downward, at an angle of forty-five degrees or even nearer the perpendicular. A fileflsh kept in an aquarium which had lost both its pectoral fins inclined over backward past the perpendicular when motionless to about the same angle that it would have kept In the other direction if its pectoral fins had been Intact, so that when not in motion it seemed to be lying at an angle on its back.
