GOOD LUCK CLOVER ON'E cool morning in spring I know It was lu Muy when all the now. era wore coming put In their bright summer dresses, a strange little clover appeared in the velvety clover patch. Now this partlculur clover patch had been rnther quarrelsome each spring, and each seemed afraid his neighbor would attract more attention than him self. On thnt very morning there had been the greatest dispute as to the prettiest clover In the patch. Pink clover had turned up her pretty little i I nose ut Miss White Clover's dainty new dress, and poor Daddy Clover was trying his best to muke peace among the naughty children, lie knew his Children were the prettiest in the meadow, but If they did not stop be in), so vain and disagreeable their dresses would soon fade and wilt. So one night he called on the busy Fairy Queen to help. "I will send you the Good-luck Clo ver," she promised. "Watch patent ly and he will come." When Daddy heard the news of a stranger among them, he hastened down to greet hltn. At the first glance the newcomer groined so tiny and odd-looking that Daddy was rather disappointed. Strangest of all, he had four leaves Instead of three. ISut when he saw what a smile roar leaf hod, he liked him very much und gave him a cordial welcome. Not so with the clover children. They whispered and luughed among themselves at tho queer dress. Of course this made four-leaf very un-1 comfortable, and he pretended not to hear. Pretty soon, however, when they saw how glad, he was to help Ihem look their best and never tried to bo admired himself, they became more friendly. Four-leaf was just bubbling over with Jolly tales and soon had them waving over In laugh ter. Then the honey bees who liked a good time came over to shore in the fun, und the patch grew livelier every day. When Four-leaf saw how much they had changed for tho better, ho knew his work in the patch was over and called all the Clover Children to him. "1 must leave you nil soon," he sold, "and before I go I will tell you a secret. As long as you. love one an other you will be beautiful. Anyone who Is cross and bad tempered will soon grow ugly." "He will remember, Four-leaf," they promised him, and waved their pretty heads In farewell as a little girl with a cry of delight stooped and picked him up. (Copyright.)

VIRGINIA THE real origin of Virginia Is cu rious and somewhat unexpected. It means "flourishing". and comes from an old Latin gens who called them' selves Verginius. Their name was de . rived In turn from vlreo, meaning to nourish, and was connected to the Word "ver," translated as spring. Ylr- gliilo was the name of the far-famed Orslnl family. Tho rire popular and prevalent be- Hcf regarding the origin of Virginia has always been that she came from the Latin vlrgo, meaning "a virgin." Indeed, the first Instance of her use In England was in the time of Queen Elizabeth when Sir Walter Raleigh, named his American colony Virginia In honor of the Virgin Queen. It was under a. similar belief that Bernadln de St. Pierre called the hero ine of his tropical Arcadian romance, VIrglnle. The widespread popularity or this story in fcngland, France and Germany brought Virginia Into enor mous vogue throughout Europe. France still adores her VIrglnle, and her popularity in Englnnd Is assured forever out of sentimental memory of the famous queen. The first American colony estab lished the name In this country. Like wise the first white child born on Amerienn soil, and named Virginia Dare did much to spread Its vogue. The South has always abounded In ' Virginias, which, unfortunately has been contracted to unmusical "Virgles" I and "Jlnnys." The emerald Is Virginia s talis tnanlc stone. It promises her wisdom, prophetic vision, long youth, and charm. The hawthorne bud, England's spring flower, is Virginia's flower. Wednesday Is her lucky day and S fcer lucky number.

FEW words (hat go to make up the long list of abused terms In com mon usage of English are employed so frequently, and so erroneously, as the two cited. Everything Is "awful," as In tho following exnmple: "Do you like that cake?" one asks of the school boy. "Yes," he replies, "It's awful good." And not alone school boys and school girls, but grown men and women, full into this error. Of course the word to be substituted for "awful" pr "awfully" Is "very."

If he bundles his knife and fork in the way thut Is accepted as "correct" they will put him down ns well bred until they have very conclusive evidence that he is not; but If he shows Ignor ance of or Indifference to this accept ed method then it will take much to muke them believe thut he has any claim to good breeding. Tills may be unfulr, but it Is true. Here ure some of the things that convention requires us to remember in our maimers at the table The salad Is cut with the side of the fork and then eaten from the side of the fork. Fish, soft entrees and, In fact, any thing that does not absolutely demund the use of a knife, are separated Into small pieces by the use of the fork, which is most excellent, as the knife at its best Is u most ungainly utensil. .

Wealth In the Hands of the Few (Isa. 5:8). 1. "Join house to house" (v. 8). 2. "Lay held to field" (v. 8). The avaricious greed of these men caused them to enlurge their cslutes at the expense of their neighbors. In agricultural districts It took the form of land-grubbing and the eviction of the sniull proprietor, und In the coin merclal centers the crowding out of the small concerns by the lurge cor porations. God hates the spirit of avarice. He hates tho greed thut Is creating the Inequalities In the eco nomic and soclnl order today. II. Methods Employed In the Ac quisition of Wealth (Amos 8:4-0). 1. "Swallowed up the needy" (v. 4) bwallowed up" llterully means to pant after, like a benst after its prey with eagerness to devour. Muny to day get rich by swallowing up the needy. This ls done by the money vender who finds a man In strultencd circumstances, loons him money nt an exorbitant rate of interest, forecloses the mortgage at the critical hour, tak ing possession of the mun's property. 2. "To make the poor tf the land to full" (v. 4). They were crusnlnit after the bouses and lands of the pour, and In order to accomplish this they impoverished them In every way pos sible so as to root them out of tho land. This they doubtless did by withholding from them their lawful wages, an exnmple of which we find lu .Tumes 5:4, and placing exorbitant taxes upon them und cheating them In the courts. 3. Begrudged the loss of holy days (v. 5). They were restlessly Impatient because of the restrictions of those days. Though outwardly conforming to tho Sabbath they were seeking all the while to commercialize It. Many today go to church for the sake of respectubllity while Impatiently wait ing for the day to pass In order to to pursue their business. 4. Dishonesty In business dealings (v. 5). (1) They madq the ephah sniull. Their measures were less 'than the price paid for. (2) They made the shekel great. The shekel being the coin used to pay bills, the mer chants put, In to circulation overweight shekels thus getting a higher price for their grain. The purchaser was thus cut on both sides." (3) Falsified their balances. Even ' the scnles by which the gold and silver were weighed hud been tampered with, mak ing them guilty of cheating In three ways. 5. They bought the poor for silver (v. 6). The poor were reduced to such poverty by the above means of cheating thnt they were obliged to sell themselves Into slavery, even for a pair of shoes. 0 They sold the refuse of the wheat (v. 6). In time of famine they even sold to the people thnt part of the wheat which was Intended for the cattle. III. God's Judgment Upon Them (Amos 8:7; cf. Isa. 5:9, 10). God says "I will never forget." Not one net of greed and oppression will escape God's notice. 1. Many houses) shall be desolate. They obtained their houses by wicked means, and they should be removed from the Innd, thus not being able to enjoy them. 2. The land unproductive (v. 10). IV. A Picture of a Rich Man and a Beggar (Luke 16:10-25). , 1. Their lives. (1) The rich man. He hud much goods. He operated In the highest society. (2) The beggar. He not only was poor, but helpless. He had no place In the social order. He had no one to feed him, nor any one to core for his sores except as the dogs licked them. 2. Their deaths. (1) Tho rich man was taken by death. He seems to have had a great burial. (2) The beggar. There Is nothing told as to what was done with his body when he died. Per haps the very dogs who licked his sores fed upon It. 3. Their destinies, (l) The rich man lifted up his eyes In hell. The beggar was carried by the angels Into Abraham a bosom. (2) What deter mined them. The future life grows out of the present. The rich man was Interested In the things of this life.' selfish thnt even when the poor beggar was laid at his gate he gave him no attention. He not only lacked the kindness of seeking opportunity to do good, but refused the one op portunity that was thrust before him. (3) Their fixedness. Their destinies were determined by their actions while alive, and after death there was no possibility of a change. The rich man lifted up his eyes In hell. 'In addition to the Buffering of hell he had the anguish of neglected opportunities. President Warren G. Harding may spend part of his summer In the beau tiful Shlunocock Hills, Long Isluud.
