The wfaitecaps go whistling, Go singing o'er the sea, A-hurrying and scurrying— Yes, in a very glee! Go tumbling, go mumbling, Sometimes in saddest finest, As if some phantom ship were lost They never seen at rest. They drift beyond the farthest bar And run them far and down, Where horizons are rich with gold About the Even's crown And under stars, and under moons, All silver-tipt they flow Where gusty winds oft change their course, Advertising was well known in the palmy days of Egypt. Of course, they didn't have the electric signs blazing across the sky, they didn't know that red makes the best color for advertis ing, green the second and black the next, but they did understand the first principles and applied them in daily life, says the Detroit Free Press. y^EttCT flEADlNG, \FOFt THE FAMILV jauwwgs^^ijgpsiDr g^f THE WHITECAPS. ^Written for The Catholic Bulletin by Qr. James Henderson.) Till back they run and slow. They break some day upon the beach Like wraiths all spent and worn, The whitecaps that had ventured far, All o'er the ocean borne And every day fresh caps ride out, And every day come in, To break upon the rocky coast, Mid raucous noise and din For long as ocean combs her surf And winds are wanton, free, The whitecaps will go scurrying Across thy breast, O sea. $ $ ADVERTISING IS AN OLD ART. Perhaps the lirst bit of advertising copy was the "lost, strayed or stolen" advertisement written by an Egyptian on a slip of papyrus when his favorite slave was missing. The Greeks had even greater skill. They advertised their concerts, musi cal affairs, plays and contests. They gave us the idea of using bands to attract a crowd, for they sent around their cities a town crier, accompanied by» a musician playing a harp or a lyre. He praised extravagantly in the best of Greek the thing he was adver tising. Later the people began to ad vertise privately, on the walls of their homes, giving information about the standing of the family occupying the house and the state of their finances. The Romans went them one better. They named their streets, advertised shows, sales and exhibitions in their public baths, notified the public of sales of estates, posted lists of arti cles lost and found and houses for sale or rent. When the Huns swept down upon Rome the advertisements disappeared with the Roman power and did not re turn until the town crier of the mid dle ages began advertising again. HUNTING HAPPINESS. In the American Magazine a writer says: "Men have been living on this world for many centuries. They have traded in their lives for many differ ent things fame, money, power. But the consensus of qpinion through the ages is that the thing most to be desired is happiness. No man can be really happy unless his conscience is clear. Therefore it pays to be honest and to treat the other fellow as one would like to be treated. No one can be happy who sacrifices his health. Therefore fame and too much money, either of which' usually ,demand health in exchange, are not to be desired. No man can have the highest happiness unless he can feel that he is doing a little good by liv ing, that he is going to leave the world a bit better after he has gone. Therefore it pays to bring children into the world and care for them. It pays to be a good neighbor and a good employer and a good friend.' s THE MAN WHO THINKS. A man with dirty face and hands, shirt soaked with perspiration, stop ped, laid down his dinner bucket, rolled a broken knuckle out of the pathway between the tracks, put it close up against the ends of the ties, where no one could stumble over it, picked up his dinner bucket and plodded home. More than fifty other employees had preceded this man, each one care fully picking his way around the ob struction. I asked this man why he took the trouble to roll the knuckle out of the pathway. He seemed surprised at such a question and said, "Why, some Of'the boys might get a bad fall if that, knuckle was there after dark." I said, "All the other men passed it by," and he replied: "Oh, they're all good boys. They'd have done the pame thing if they'd thought about He said something, didn't he? "If they'd thotfglit about it." Ah, yes, "If they'd thought about it." B€COfcllNG ANCESTORS GRACE i? FULLY. The United States has for many years been sending missionaries to Japan. It is in the news of the day that Nippon is about to reciprocate our kindness. A dainty Japanese lady, by name Miss Toshiko Sakamaki, is to bring us the gospel of Shintoism. Among other things it teaches the cult of ancestor worship. Eliminating all sense' of gratitude for the spirit of fair play shown by Japan, we might learn something from the gentle lady's teaching. Americans have been ac (^blomed to. measure Jt^e^worth q£ their ancestors by the material things left behind: Some ancestors have been acceptable on genealogical grounds. They open to us the doors of honorable organizations of "Sons" or "Daughters" of Something. To oth ers some ancestors have furnished the beginnings of portrait galleries which make at least a pretence to family pride. The Japanese do better by their ancestors. With them ancestry is of eugenic quality. It stands to the .lap for what he should be and what life children may be. The prayer of every good disciple of Sliintoism is that he may one day be a perfectly good ancestor, lie ow'es it to those gone before and his excellence is to be a link in an endless lineage. We may not be able to follow all that Miss Sakamaki may teach us, but we should listen with a receptive spirit and a due amount of meekness. If Americans would realize their ob ligations to future generations we might .do something to curb the di vorce evil, to put a stop to the in creasing horrors of child murder and see in our children something more than a potential factor in the money market. —Exchange. WORSE THAN IRELAND'S An editorial in Farm and Fireside draws attention to the American one year lease system as follows: "It is a reproach to American ag ricultural life that so many people on March' 1 are homeless. We used to read with grief and indignation of the evictions of tenants in Ireland, oblivious of the fact that our Ameri can tenant system is as bad as that of Ireland ever was, and not half so ood as Ireland's is now. This lit tle picture of the situation, written by a victim of the system—a ten ant's wife—shows a cheerfulness un der difficulties that is almost pitiful. But who will deny that, as years pass, this cheerfulnes may turn to bitter ness under the crushing difficulties encountered by some of our American wanderers on the face of the earth in search of homes." SATURDAY NIGHT. Placing the little hats all in a row, Ready for church on the morrow, you know Washing wee faces and little black fists, Getting them ready knd fit to be kissed Putting them into clean garments and white, That is what mothers are doing to night. Spying-out rents in a.little worn lioso^ Laying by shoes that are worn through the toes Looking o'er garments so faded and thin Changing a ..button to make it look right, That is what mothers are doing to night. Calling the little ones all around hex chair Hearing them lisp their evening prayer Telling them stories of Jesus of old, The Shepherd, Who gathers the lambs to His fold Watching them listen with childish delight— That is what mothers are doing to night. Creeping so softly to take a last peep— Silence the token of childhood's sleep Anxious to know if the dear ones are warm Tucking the blanket round each lit tle form Kissing each little face, rosy and bright, That is what mothers are doing to night. —Washington Post. THE LARGEST FARM. In 1912, it was estimated that the largest farm in the world was in Chi huahua, Mexico. According to the Scrapbook, it included 8,000,000 acres of fertile land and measured 150x200 miles. On mountains and through its valleys roamed over 1,000,000 cattle, 700,000 sheep and 100,000 horses, re quiring the services of 2,000 horse men, herdsmen, shepherds and hunts men. The farm belonged, in 1912, to Don Luis Terrazas. WRITING ON METALS. Usually a man attempts to put bis name on his metal possessions by scratching with a .file or kniffe and makes the poorest sort of a job. It is really very easy to write, on any metal—the blade of a jackknife, watch case, spates—if one happens to know how, and the attractiveness of the inscription is limited only by the artistic ability of the'individual. Cover the plate wliere you wish to write with a thin coating of melted beeswax. When the wax is cold write plainly with any pointed instru ment, being particular to cut the let ters through the wax to the metal. Then mix one ounce of muriatic acid and one-half of an ounce of nitric acid, or smaller quantities in the same proportion (and remember that those acids are deadly poisons), and apply the mixture to the lettering with a feather, carefully filling each letter-. Allow the acids to remain from one to ten minutes, according as the etching is to be light or deep. Next dip the article in water, wash out the acids and melt off the wax, and the thing is done. A little oil should be applied as a finishing touch. Gold, silver, iron or steel can be marked in Mention of The Catholic Bulletin when patronizing advertisers will be mutually beneficial.

SOME WELL MEANING PEOPLE. Confidence in a chum does not mean that you should turn your mind and heart inside out for her inspec tion. A truly worthy friend will not exact or permit such revelations, Every family lias its joys and sor rows, its struggles with economies, with traits of character, fits of blues, irritability and temper which consti tute the family's own problem and concern outsiders not at all. These fits of crankiness, temper and naughtiness are usually regretted by no one more than by the victims themselves. It should be the duty of every member of the family circle to help them fight their fight and overcome them. Telling of them out side the family strikes a cruel blow to the erring one's self-respect, and places a strong hindrance in the way of her final victory. Many lovable persons wiil go into a home, accept its shelter and hos pitality, then go forth telling with out the slightest reserve all they have seen and heard while thus sharing the intimacy of the family life. Usually they are well-meaning ..per sons. They would not consciously do these good friends harm. They have not yet learned that it is wiser and kinder to keep some things to them selves. Anything that an individual learns while an inmate of a home that the family would not like' dis cussed in public should be kept as loyally as though it were a secret of one's very own. FATHER DE SMET'S TION. ILLUSTRA- Father de Smet, S. J., the Indians' great friend and teacher, had an in genious method of setting facts be fore the children of the forest. Sim ple in manner himself, and child-like, he knew little of the ways of the world, but among his people, his dear Indians, he was revered as counsellor and guide.' He met their difficulties with examples and illustrations .that explained away their questioning^, as in the following instance: Once he waa jpreacUrng .to thjeL&acs.

The subject a most savage tribe of Indians, of his sermon vvts the Trinity. All listened intently for $, while, and then there was murmuring. The In dians have a rule that the wise men of a tribe may interrupt any speaker. And now they objected: "Black Robe^ you are not speaking to women. Three persons in one is impossible." For an instant Father de Smet was nonplussed. Then like an inspiration came the sight of the river nearby. The season was winter there was thin ice on the water and over it a layer of snow. "My brothers," said Father de Smet, "look at the river. When the sun shall come to melt the snow and the ice, all shall be but one stream of water." The Indians were perfectly satisfied with this ex planation. PLAYING ROElNSON CRUSOE.

There is a good fable told about a king's garden in which all at once the trees and flowers began to pine and make complaint. The oak was sad because it could not yield ilowers the rosebud was sad because it could not bear fruit the vine was sad because it^had to cling to a wall and could cast no cool shadow. "We are not of the least use," said the oak and the vine. Then the king saw a little pansy which all this time held up its glad, fresh facej while all the rest were sad. And the king said: "What makes you so fresh and glad, while all the rest pine and are so sad?" 'T thought," said the pansy, "that you wanted me here because you planted me, and so I made up my mind that I would try to be the best little pansy that could be." We cannot all be wise and great. We cannot all occupy high positions in the world and do great things, but we can all try. to be good and do the \ery best we can in the position in which we have been placed. THE LITTLE PRINCfc. Once upon a time, many years ago, there was a little princ^ who lived is a beautiful palace. The king, his father, loved him dearly, and gave him everything he could wish for, ponies and rowboats and servants to wait on him and amuse him books and pictures and toys, and yet the little prince was not happy. Did you ev'cr know a little boy who had sledtf and bicycles and such things and yet who was not happy?

"I want my son to be happy," said the king, "so I am-willing to pay any thing you ask." Then the magician took the little boy into one of the private rooms of the palace, and he wrote with some thing white on a piece of paper, and gave it to him. "Here is a candle," said the magi cian, "and when I am gone, hold it under this paper and read the words which will then appear." Then the magician, went away, and would take no pay at all. The little prince held the blank paper over the candle, and words ap peared in blue letters: "Do a kindness to some one every day." The little prince did so. That was the secret that made him the hap piest boy in all the great kingdom. UNSEEN BLESSINGS. The people on the crowed street Stopped and held their breath as the speeding touring car leaped up on the sidewalk right in tlie path of the two girls hurrying across the street to escape it. A sudden swerve of the chauffeur, a switch to one side -just in time, and the car shot past, graz ing the skirt of one of the girls. Panting and Hushed the two girls stood on the curb. The by-standers' faces expressed relief at the narrow escape, while they joined in indignant protest at the reckless driver speeding away in the distance. "Jr^ow Ave ever escaped I don't know" panted one of the girls. "It was only God's providence," answered the other reverently, as they made their way slowly and thoughtfully, across the street "that was the nearest I ever came to Doing run over. When I saw the car dash up on the sidewalk we were making for—right in our path—I thought there was no escape for us.

This time we saw how wonderful it was, but I wonder if there are not other times when we have just as great deliverances and never know." "Yes," agreed her companion, "I saw a man crossing the street the other day when a car just missed him. He was walking along with his head down, evidently much preoccupied, and the car coming up behind him just missed him by an inch or so but he did not seem even to see it, went on the same way—head down, evi dently lost in thought." "I believe God saves us from dan ger many times when we don't know about it," answered her friend. "How much Ave have to thank Him for!" THAT WE MAY FIND REST. "I find he never rests," said the mother, who was taking her little son upstairs for his noonday nap, "unless I take away his playthings before I put him in his cot. He used to want something tb hold when I laid him down. But I found he would not rest as long as he had his treasure to look at." There are many of us who never fiud real rest of heart till the Father in His wisdom takes from us the treasures to which we cling. Some times it is the educational opportun ity on which we have so set our hearts sometimes it is merely the summer outiilg that we had planned for, sometimes it is the key to the gateway of what seemed'an altogether pleasanter kind of life. But the taking away of the treas ured thing was often necessary that our restless spirits might find in .the Father alone the real rest of heart that makes us strong for servicc. !$bday's best is worth mora today, than tomorrow's better.
