COLLECTED VVISQOM There is no school like the school of experience, except the school of other folk's experience. Nature is a rag merchant, who works up every shred and odd and end into new creations. Love of good is like clear and beau tiful water, but when it is joined with hate of evil it becomes like steam. To be brave is not merely not to be afraid. Courage is that compactness and clear coherence of all a man's faculties and powers which make his manhood a single operative unit in the world. The divine right of kings may have been a plea for feebie tyrants, but ths divine right of government is the key stone of human progress, and without it governments sink into police and a nation is degraded into a mob. Nothing sharpens the arrow of sar casm so keenly as the courtesy that polishes It no reproach Is like that we clothe with a smile and present with a bow.Chicago Evening Post. .._.. ....p,.,...J..J,i .111111 #4 WORDS OF WISE MEN Self-respect has more sclf-re liance than self-assertion.
