SESS With the Passing of His Fiftieth Birth day Man Should Take 'a 'Few Moments and Think Hard. When you have passed, say, your fiftieth birthday anniversary, that foxy old gent, Mr. Time, puts the skids un der you and -greases them good and I plenty. . i It Is appalling, then, how quickly the days and the weeks and the months pass. You start in on Monday morn ing, and before you know it, it is Sat urday night again. Even the years, slip by as though you were riling through life on a roller coaster. The thing to do then, brother, is to put on the brakes. Slow up and get a little more enjoyment out of' the scen ery. Some men think that just the other way is the best method to.adopt, but we are convinced that they are making a mistake. Their idea is that the thing to do when one grows gray and bald is to keep up with the procession, wear p'neh-hack clothos, silk socks and a sailor hat with a polka dot band. Rut, if you do that, all you achieve is an acceleration of the pace. It is n pathetic form of camouflage that de rives no one, and yourself least of ailj When you are fifty and over, you know it, and everyone else knows it. When a n.nn is fifty he should have a heme in the country, or at least out f the town, lie should awake before dawn and say good morning to the sun. sip bis glass of water deliberately in stead of gulping it down, move serene ly, take Ids time. When night comes he should be able to say, "Well, this has been a fine, long day," instead of saying. "For the lovt of like, where has this day gone to?" Turn, when old age comes, you will In; able to say with the sage: "Old age is the night of life, but Is the night net beautiful with stars?"

Metropolitan .Restaurant "A Nice Place to Eat." (1 Corner Iain and Broadway He Is the Man Who Sees Tendency cf the Times and Helps Direct It Correctly. Who is he? A person who Leeps bis ryes open and ku;vs what is goiiic; on, and who issxerls si conviction fn.::: what he sees. One may think it is verj difiicult, considering the complexity and multiplicity of events, to possess oneself 'of a governing truth from t!r driftwood of the rapldiy p:ssin-, stream of things. I;ut that is not what be has to do. If a person h:i. to wait for every little particular 3:.' wiil never reach n judgment or bclirf. You can see such people ia a commu nity, mere peckers of bird seed, fu': of vapid talk -and controversy. Thi y are no more agents of truth than OIo Nick is. -You don't have to inspect each par ticular straw to see what a haystack is. You can look at it, see its form, understand its purpose, and know ail there is in a haystack to know. So ::i life, the small facts are endless and shed no light. , One must turn from them to the ten dency or policy and make up his ininn from that. Such a discovery is easier than a single fact. One cannot ma!:-' up one's mind from little things, for they are endless, one suggest!ng an other infinitely. So a general view that expresses a tendency provides thi opportunity for a conviction. The civic duty, then, is to get ac quainted with the tendency of a meas ure of policy, the influence It has or other things and how it' affects th habits of a community. This constant jowering about particulars never con structs a real faith. One has to take bis stand on an axion or self-evident truth and then look out and sec whether a circumstance is coming te him or going from hira. That is the way to get at a tendency which is the necessity habit of good citizenship. It Is the small mind that is constant ly looking for peanut facts and rea sons. It Is the larger mind that look? for tendencies, andx the field for ItF exercise includes all national, state and city affairs. A man who doesn't see tendencies there is a poor citizen, and they are legion. Columbus Jour nal. v One of th:? most precious posses sions of an officer in England, and on' which excited much curiosity during j recent short leave. Is an ordinary wish bone which he has had mounted in gob! and carries about with him as a mas cot, it having already, he avers, onc saved his life. It appears that while near the froni line in France he was enjoying a nir meal of doubtful chicken with u couph of brother officers, and was just aboiiv to try conclusions with the wishbon with his opposite comrade when i! slipped fr:m his plate and dropped under the heavy oak table the thre; had managed to secure from a mine; farmhouse for their barn billet. Nf sooner bad the Birmingham man go: under the table to grope for the bom than the barn was reduced to debris by a couple of direct hits from tnemj airplanes. The oiher two officers were killeil outright, but the sb-nt table saved, the third from any material injury. The wishbiine was firmly clasped in lii rigkt baud when he was dug out of the ruins.
