The padding should be firmly stamped down and the smaller can placed upon this.

Of men and women working at jobs for which nature never fitted nor intended them. To such persons life is haunted with dead hopes, disappointments, and often health-wrecking results. It is important that one should choose well the work he has to do in the world. "Those who begin life in crutches will always limp," says an old proverb. It means that a man who chooses as his life's work Mine task that is uncongenial has a poor chance to succeed. It is worth a great sacrifice to choose the work you cun do best, and as grim Curlyle said; "Has a man found his work? Then, in God's name, let him do it."

Qeorge Kllngla. The Passion Play Will Survive. War may bring havoc to the lit tle German village of Oberammer gau, but the "Passion Play" will live. This is the word which Fraulein Marie Mayer brings to Chicago Fraulein Mayer was Mary Magdalene in the 1910 performance of the pi iy. She came to America to tell the people who for centuries have made their decennial re-enactment of the passion play a mag net to draw all the world to their village "The ancient vow of Ohcraminer gail will never be broken because of war," Fraulein Mayer said. "I believe that in 1920 regardless .if I lie desolation that may visit the village, its people will enter into preparations for the "Passion Play" with greater devotion than ever before I should not say that, either, for I do not know how they could exhibit more devotion to the play than they have in centuries past. "None of the men who took prin cipal roles in 11)10 has been killed in the fighting, according to the lat est information I have from home. Most of tufiii in the front ranks land most of the women are work ing for the Red Cross or tilling the I fieldsluboiit the village where their husbands and brothers are no long er to be seen. i "One great figure of the play is still at home He is Anton Lang, who was the Christ of the 1910 per formance Reports readied this coimtiy some tune !ii!,i that he had been killed. Tnose reports are false. Mr. Lang was excused from military service early in Ine for physical causes and has never borne arms." Most if Kr illicit i Maker's life has , been given up in training for the "Passion Flay." j "Hut that is nothing unusual in Olierutimier an," she said. "Neur- jlyall the people there give their I lives to the play. "I appeared first in 18!K) as a lit tle girl, waving palm branches and figuring in tableaux. Ten years later I was an angel in the Garden of Gethsemnne In 1010 I realized the ambition which every girl in the village feels when I was given the role of Mary Magdalene. That role will never be assigned to me again. I must surrender it to a younger person. The parts of Mary and Mary Magdalene are never played twice by the same person. With men it is different. Among lliein it is the custom to continue the same persons in their roles. But ten years make such a change in a woman s appearance mat she is never allowed to repeat a role." better Than Ualna Cane.

Why Prince Albert Wins Patented Process Is Responsible for Its International Popularity. ( Smokers so much nppricinte the : flavor and coolness and nroma uf , Prince Albert pipe and fiiJar- tt. tobacco that they often marvel tl; it 1 I his one brand could be mi dilTcrc ii , from all others. j The answer to this question is to j be found on the reverse side o 1 every Prince Albert package, where 1 you 'will read: "Process Patented ; .Inly Until. 1907." That tells the j whole story. Prince Albert is m.nie by a patented process that cuts out the bite and parch, which makes the tobacco so mighty agreeable and satisfying to men of every taste of every civilized nation on the globe. Smokers should realized that this patented process cost three yenrs' continuous work and study and a fortune in money to perfect But the result has proven to be worth all that was expended upon it, be- cause it has set free men who be lieved they never could enjoy a ' pipe or a mekin's cigarette. Prince Albert makes it possible for every man to smoke a pipe or to roll his own cigarettes. And no matter how tender the tongue j Prince Albert cannot bite or parch.' That is cut out by the patented f process, leaving for the smoker only the joys of the fragrant to bacco. I It is a fact that since Prince Albert "arrived," just about six years ago, it has made three men smoke pipes where one smoked a pipe before!
