' - The Sennaca Indians had a beautiful superstition when a loved one of the tribe was called to the "happy hunting ground," a young bird was imprison ed until he beiran to chirn his little sng. It was then loaded with ca resses and set free, with a firm con viction that it would neiiher fold wing, nor close eye, until it had borne its burden to the shadow of the spirit land. The bird is freed and .were the superstition true, there would be car ried to O.

The motorcar salesman's lack of Judgment cost him a sale. He was try ing to sell a professional man a ma chine, but he handed out the wrong kind of talk and "queered" the deal. His prospective customer had been in two or three serious motorcar acci dents while out riding with friends ad really was Just a bit timid about riding in a machine, although to please his family he had Just about made up his mind to buy one. The motorcar man, with much glibness and effective ness, presented the various virtues of his car. "Just look at the axle," he said. "When you get in a smashup that axle, unlike many others, will not break, but will bend, and so can be repaired , without much expense." This unfortunate argument spoiled the sale. It aroused the sense of fear which the professional man had when riding in a machine, and he told the salesman that he guessed he would not place his order" for a machine at that time Love of Ease. . What is there about "love of ease" that makes the strenuous one so wroth? Love of ease is a universal human trait, and has been so from the beginning of time. It is the Incentive even of war. Barbarian tribes and na tions fight for slaves, and even the civilized city-states of ancient Greece made war in order to reduce their cap tive enemies to bondage and compel them to do all the work, so that the conquerors might enjoy lives of leisure.- Love of ease is the mainspring of nearly all human activities. Men labor to obtain 'comforts and luxuries. If - the hope of -enjoyln the fruits of his work srere . gone, no man would labor except under compulsion ot law or. oNnecesity.

SICK CHILDREN NOT WANTED AT SCHOOL.

Especially is this advised where there bis been no medical supervision pro vided for the opening of school.
