Mrs. Barker's voice, while pleasant enough, was crisp, and I guessed that she did not relish inter ruptions to her work. I pushed open the door, and found myself In a big, im maculately clean kitchen, with flower ing plants at the windows, and brilliant parti-colored rag rugs softening the se vere linoleum floor covering. Mrs. Bar ker, erect, efficient and wholesome in spotless gingham working coartirma. was putting muffins into a pan, while a rather sulky-looking girl was attending to the frying of potatoes. Oh.

Great Britain right, laattd.1 rHY does there seem to be a special meaning in the changing of the calendar the simple addition of a higher number to the record of the years? Why isn't there as great a thrill in the striking of the clock which sweeps away any old day ushering in the new day with all its duties and its possibilities? There is no wondrous change in nature the midnight is jnst as starry or as dark as any other. But it .is well, isn't it, that out of three hundred and sixty-five days we give one new day its just measure of thought? Could there be a finer way to welcome every day despite the hygienic error of waking Eaby even though but for the magic minute than with the tender love and de voted prayers which seem to spring from worth while hearts upon this wondrous night?

The Man of Mystery is at Biackwell's Island in New York City. He is a college graduate, he's hand some, well-mannered, of charming personality. He belongs to a good family and he makes a very fair living, writirg magazine stories that ars a little more than very fair. But he forges checks every time he gets a chance, he forpes a check and then someone catches him, and he is arrested and tried and goes to prison, and when he gets there behind the bars, he seems to wake up from a confused dream and begins to realize just what it is he has been doing, and now he asks the surgeons to see if they can't help him. Poor fellow! I wonder if the surgeons can do him any real good. What a great thing it would be for all of us if we could just have our faults and follies amputated once and fcr all. It would be worth it, wouldn't it, no matter how much we suffered under the operation? A bad temper how many evils that brings into a man's life! I know a man of great ability who is a complete failure in life just because he was bcrn with a perpetual "grouch." could j-ust go to a hospital and have that "grouch" amputated, he'd be on the road to riches within ten years. I know a woman who lets her vanity step in between herself and her happiness, like a silly, malicious, fluttering shadow. She has a good husband and a good home and two good little chil dren, and she loves her husband and she loves her home and she loves her children, but her vanity won't let her alone, so she poses and makes eyes and gushes whenever she sees an interesting man, and the interest ing man sometimes misunderstands her and thinks she's a good deal worse than she really is, and she's being talked about, and her husband has heard of it, and the first thing that silly woman knows she's going to be alone in the world with nothing but her vanity to keep her company. Wouldn't a clever surgeon's knife be a godsend in such a case as that? Banish Othnr Troubles Amputate a "Grouch' I If the sun shines he wishes It would rain if it rains, he wishes he were dead. If it's night, he thinks it ought to be morning, and if it's morning, he's hoping it won't be long till night. And nobody can stand him and nobody is willing to try. Now if ha Envy the woman with the green eyes she's never happy, never comfortable, never contents, anywhere, anytime, anyhow. She's always delighted when she gets a new hat until she meets somebody else with a newer one, and then her eyes turn greener than ever and she looks and is absolutely miserable. Egotism what a hateful, cancerous, growth that is! How it will pollute and torture even the finest nature! "I think, I see, I feel. I hope, I wish" never "you," never "he, never "she" always "I, I, I." Maybe, some day, we'll found a school of medicine which will treat diseases of the character as well as disease of the body but dear me, who is going to be brave enough to make the first diagnosis? I'm wondering whether there' a thought for the New Year hidden in this somewhere. May every day of jdvt new year be brimming with new happiness!

Amy iowell. the poet, raised her voice against too much legislation a a, spe cial town meeting here. Brookline, which is larger than many Alassucnuetts cities, is under a modified form of town government, by which a limited number of citi zens are chosen &3 voting members. Miss Lowell la not one of these this year and. was seated outside the rail, but she exercised her right to speak on matters before the meeting. The voice of the poet was first hoard against a rule that would raiso from eig-ht to ten miles on hour, tho miimum speed of horses on the public streets. "Because horses has to go slower," the Moderartor replied. Under another proposed by-law children would not be allowed to skate or slide or drag their sleds on sidewalks. "Are we going to make all our children criminals?" Mies Lowell in. quired. "Are we to be entirely offi cialized? Are we to abandon en tirely our coi3titutlonal rights to the pursui't of happiness ?" The Moderartor, Philip S. Parker, chairmen of selectmen which drew up the new by-laws, remarked that Miss Lowell was a past mistress of satire and ridicule as those who read her poems well knew. Mrs. H. P. Whf.tington, a. votlnu member,, spoke in favor of the revis ions. r;iniel Dailey, an atotorney, spoke stronfrly in opposition. He asserted that the selectmen had made changes In the by-laws between the time these were printed and 'the town moling, malting the proceedings il legal. In the end. the voting" members iraTKed most of the new by-laws. That limiting the speed at horses aer.t against the contention of Miss IjOWoII. The regulation on sledding was amended to permit children to drag their sleds over the sidewalk on the rerurn from a coast down designated streets. It was voted Aent it was the sense of the meef-inff that the interpitiniS aioiher by-Law against unnecessary noises, the polic? should not take all hc joy out of children's lives by in terfering with their enjoyment of musical toys.

Some like it and some don't, hence there are various emotions aroused in, the neighboring bosoms. As a result the 18 Carps have been relegated to the outskirts of Brownsville, repudi ated by landlords and tenants. Forty years ago when Moi E. Carp led a band in St. Petersburg he did not dream that his musical descend ants would devastate a community. He was a bandmaster of Caar Alex ander II., but after he had benn overlooked in a pogrom he was ban ished and came to New York. He married and accumulated a family of 21, of whom 18 are living and able to play everything from a piccolo to a bass drum. Bandmaster Carp settled in Browns ville and gained a living by his musi cal talents. As each little Carp carno into the world he or she was Instruct ed in the use of some instrument un til musically the Carp ramily was something to brag aboutf but socially they were ostracised. Carp used to get them together on Sunday, don n:a uniform with the little red coat he wore in the regime of the Czars ana lead them through the intricacies of Dvorak and Tschaiwoksky. Those were great days in Brownsville. As the Carps grew up three or tno boys went into vaudeville with their violins and cellos and made music and money. Six of the daughters let dust accumulate on their fiddles and took up matrimony. But there were nine left, besides Papa and Mama Carp. They function as follows: Minnie, 19. piano: William 18, vio lin; Amiel, 16, violin; Leon, 13, bass viol; Ida, 12, violin; M'arten, 10. flute, Shepherd, 8, clarionet; Denhardt, 7. horn, and Pauline, 3, who picks out Grieg with one finger on the piano. On Sundays all the other Carps who were within flapping distance of the old home came back and lined U'P before Bandmaster Carp and the lid was off. The effect has been ex!? to a shack at 1674 Park Place, Brownsville, way out near the wooda, and the Carps have been trying with out success to get bacak to civli:za tlon. But to everey request evry landlord waves his arms and says: "Go hire a hall." IT'S A FINE (?) JOB Glenrock. Wyo., Dec. 80.
