A BUSINESS I IS A So, why worry? Worry saps the vitality, brings gray hairs, produces wrinkles, and it can turn a sunshiny day into a dreary one Without a cloud in the sky, wor ry can make one believe there will be a downpour any minute. Worry discounts all bills receiv able, adds interest to those which are not paid, and disturbs the scheme of things generally. It never won a battle. It never cleared a situation. It never solv ed a problem. Milwaukee Sentinel Friday a. m. 9:00 Music. Miss Kathteen Stone. Invocation. Dr. C. F.

"Articulation and what it means," Supt C, E. Stephens This is the latest time saving idea in type writing. And it finds its perfect develop ment in the MODEL 10 VISIBLE The old hand adjustment of the carriage which consumed so much time and labor re. on the MODEL 10 SMITH PREMIER, reduced to an absolute minimum. Spacing for the writing point on each line, back spacing, tabulating; all are performed from the keyboard. The hands of the operator never touch the carriage except to insert the paper and space for a new line. To watch a SMITH PREMIER operator at work is to get a convincing idea or the value of these time and labor taring features.

I once knew all the birds that came And nested in our orchard trees. For every flower I had a name ' My friends were woodchucks, toads and bees: I knew where thrived in yonder glen What plants would soothe a stone-bruised toe Oh, I was very learned then. But that was very long ago. I know the spot upon the hill Where checkerberriestcould.be found, ' v.; I knew the rushes near the mill Where pickerel lay thaf'weigh a pound! I knew the wood the very tree Where lived the poaching saucy crow, ' And all the woods and crows knew me - , , But that was very long ago. And pining for the joys of youth I tread the old familiar spot. Only to learn this solemn truth: I have forgotten, am forgot. Yet here's the youngster at my knee Knows all the things I used to know; To think I once was wise as he! But that was very long ago. I know it's foliy to complain Of whatsoe'er the fates decree. Yet. were not wishes all in vain, I tell you what my wish should be; I'd wish to be a boy again. Back with the friends I used to know. For I was very happy then But that was very long ago! Eugene Field. About the Goldish. The original color of the goldfish was not gold, as many people have supposed, but light greeu with a tinge of bronze. Careful breeding of the fish as pets have gradually produced the orange gold shade which now makes the little creat ures so attractive. It has been noted that goldfish have escaped from the public foun tains of Washington into the Potomac river. The offspring of these runaway pets, raised in the new and more natural conditions afforded by the broad stream, have gradually regained their original light greenish garb, it is said. Chicago News.
