rates the old 5-cent piece, will be
taken by the head of an Indian,

strength and character.
On the opposite side appears a
bison. There is no capital "V"
on the new nickel. Instead,
under the buffalo, appears the
words "Five Cents." On the
same side is the rest of the legal

Superstition is nearly as old as
man and that it exists now quite
as strong though not as wide
spread as in the early ages of
our world, is proved by the var
ious rites and ceremonies practic
ed on certain days throughout
the year. Even those who ridi
cule them, yet participate in
them "just for fun," have a
lingering half suspicion in their
minds that it might come true;
especially ia this the case when
inclination paints the way. St.
Valentine is the acknowledged
patron saint of lovers; and the
peculiar customs connected with
the day were referred to by
writers nearly COO years ago.
The St Valentine who suffered
martyrdom on the 14th of Febru
ary was one cf the fifty-two
saints of that name but nothing
has ever been found in his life
or in the lives of any of them
that would give occasion for the
singular observance of the day.
It has been maintained that it
wa3 an ancient custom among
the Romans during the Luper
ca'ia, celebrated in the month of
February for the men and boys
to draw the names of their fu
ture wive3 in honor of their
goddess Februate Juno, and that
the Christian clergy finding it
absolutely impossible to abolish
this heathen rustom changed it
to a religious ceremony by writ
ing on the slips "of paj)er instead
of the names of wurnen those o

What to Take During 1913.
Take this paper.
Take comfort if you can.
Take things easy -within rea
son. "i,
Take the girl you love to be
your wife.
Take care of your health. It
Us the most valuable thing you
Take a hint when it is intend
ed for you. Don't wait to be
knocked down.
Take flattery as an insult, and
an honBt compliment as some
thing to be grateful for.
Take pains to be faithful and
conscientious in business. It
will bring you success.
Take offense only at things
worth being offended at. It is a
sure evidence of a small mind to
notice trifles.
Take hold of any work that
comes to your mind rather than
be idle. Luck always waits upon
the busy.
Take time to be polite and
kind always. Rudeness never
pays, the poor may think so but
he is wrong.
Take trouble like a man. Don't
go w hining about when ii comes,
but 6hut your mouth and stand
up under it resolutely.
Take a trip now and then, and
try to see something outside of
the town you live in. Travel is
one of the best of educators.
Take pains to do vour work
well. The conscientious worker
is the oce who ceta to the front
the one who is never idle.
