I wish 1 vam young ngnln; wlgh I could feel Jolly and happy like I use to aee Bean; ariah the little things in Ufo could make me feel happy aa .?ey did her and does yet I suppose. 1 But Bhe la in a nest of ter own now, * and her happljesa fails to put new| ? VC *** ***** **. **? "'** 'u by-gono days. I ban no long'- hear her jolly songs ansi seo her bright face aa she skips hither and thither, and many times a good long dancing spell after tho poatinaa had brought ber a letter, a plain little letter from one ot her chumo; some happy, frolicing girl like herself whom -'the cares of life had not yet fallen upon. Many times haye I seen ber dance the front porch until she waa nearly frozen, then come into my room and pile rugs and <hairs in a corner then.bring me to1 my feet and give a few swings that ' .would make my stiff Joints feel as If they would break; while abe sang rag time worse than a boot-black. Yes, she was young and happy and an op timist from the crown of her head tot tbe sole of her feet, of course an op timist and happy as could be, noth ing bad ever come her way but the good things ot life, and there was no need to feel the .world waa a gloomy old place. Well. ? am glad to say that her young life was so- full of sunshln. I am glad aa I can be that the young can be happy over little things, glad that all the first tow years require so little to bring happiness, and sorry this Joy must toe broken'up for the want of confi dence, for BUrely lt ia for tho want of confidence thai we lose faith in our friends, and (hen begin to doubt them and ere we reach middle age it takes more than nattery and promise to make us happy. Time and experience are rigid tutors, and they play havo vith :iie man or woman who cares on'... for the flimsy things of life. Beung happy and Jolly ls a good feel ing to have, .but if it isnt over tbe useful things of Ufo, tho best in life, wp will abed tears of sorrow over the things that once gave ua the most pleasure. For thia reason we are prone to be pesahniatic, we are tempt ed to believe all things end In sor row, and after years and years of joys ending this wao\ we old folks scarcely- expect anything but the dark aldo. I'm often called an old pessimist, and it burts my feeling, tout do you know I am afraid in time mine accusers will have a touch of the same bad feeling. -As we grow older we are forced to see the world and all nature in a dig?rent light from that of our young days, <We ssey try wtth all our might to take a more hopeful view of our surroundings, but things Just will not look like they use to. I have read of several noted authors who were forced In advanced years to give up their werk because they had become pessimistic; they were men and women who had up to fifty years of age filled vol?imo after] volume, tbe grandest - literary pro duction, but at'the first sign ct a?e: lost their hold on cheerful views and could write nothing but tho gloomy things in life, yet these sume au thors had lost'none of their literary knowledge; they had only reached tao age In life where the sun failed to shine as bright as it once did. They did not mean to be pessimistic, but they could no longer see the world in the same bright light. We aro forced to this tendency to see moro caranero than light. Hoi only au? thors have this feeling but it 1? com oon with all of ua after we have passed the fifty mile post. I wouldn't mind lt so much but I do not want say friends to think of me aa an old pessimist. I'm rure I waa as Jolly and happy In my youth aa any girl you caa find today. ITU sure it took aa little then to make me happy aa any girl now. I bad all tho confident and faith in humanity, that one could have. I believed cverjr word that was told me. 1 see now lt WT? for the want of wisdom, but somehow I wish this ignorsnce waa mine today; wish I could believe in everybody. I think it would bring peace and joy. Tho older we grow the more wo dis trust those about ua, and I . fear the fault ia mostly ours. Measuring those abolit us by our own standard never gives saUBfaction. Condemn ing people only toringa to light our own shortcomings.Ian* tt a pKy we can't think of thia In time and eave .irou?ie. ??Jip?Cii?e vuiug? *??

The place called home was one in name only, a place to eat md sleep, a poor place for rest and BO place at all for counsel and kind ness. The mother was cook and house keener, ?be prepared their soarse meals an d' mend ed their own slothes, had food and clothes ready shea they rushed In from work, rhey were only at home to eat and sleep. The mother told of their early raising, what a teak to get them up rcr*breakfSst to be ?etan before dawn. Prom early childhood it was always set up early, but the luxury of carly to bed was unknown to them. These three law-breaking - sons were the eldest of the twelve, and they must aiake their own bread and help sup port the ill-fated family. Ill-fated it must to be to have mouths to fill sud nothing to fill them Such was the case here. The boya, were only at Borne during the . nifht 'hours. Then the poor mother on trial told of how her sons for the first five years had hastened home after the day's work, but later they tired of all work and BO play, and then began the late hours which in a ahort time brought tron?lo to mother and sons; a trou ble the poor mother waa powerless to help. Her helpfulness had com menced at their birth. By nature she was their mother, but poverty and overwork had taken away all her privileges and deprived her sons ot a mother's training which brought suf fering alike to all, and no doubt made a home ot pessimists, while the ac cusers were good, jolly optimist, had seen the world in a favorable light and found lt a good place to live in. Yea, while we rejoice with the opti mist and congratulate him on his beautiful viewa of the world, would lt not be, wise and Just: to sympathize with the pessimist who has found life only s ir??nwMJ???? ?->iFCwiu?va?C^s and conditions have *\s. m?ch to do in rnaMng an optimist ftf>a pessimist as youth and old age change us from one to the other.

Beavers Under Fire From Atlanta Papers Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 28.-Chief of Po lice Beavers and leaders of the Men and Religion Forward Movement are 1 criticising, newspaper correspondents 1 in Atlanta for sending out stories 1 reflecting upon the efficiency of the police department and deploring tho 1 increase during recent months of va : rious kinds of crime bi Atlanta. 1 It la a fact that a great many such ' stories have been sent out by various 1 correspondents tn Atlanta, and have been published, sometimes with sea i sational headlines by daily and week ! ly papers all over the south, but- tho - -. ?--. - - - -, n . i ~~W- -_ ? aitcuuuu Wt Vtltv; wnw,o ?a uvn irv ing c.-.i'ed to the fact, tost these stories reflect a general condition . which has been noticed In a news and editorial way by the Atlanta daily papers before correspondents ever i?ch it up, and that the charges.cf Inefficiency made against, bis depart ment are legitimate news in that they have been made over and over again by Atienta citizens in the communi ty. The. storiesvsent over the stats that the charge had beeb made in Atlanta that the close of the aegrated vice district simply scattered vice all over the city did as much harm as good, were seat only after that identical view of the situation bad been widely expressed in Atienta. The Men and Religion leaders themselves are under fire for sland ering the good name of Atlanta, and chief of police and his department are being criticised' openly in .

As long as they do exist they will be written about both by the Atlanta correspondents and by the Atlanta papers. A perusal ot I the state press for a period of months past will show, if compared, to whet has been published in tho Atlanta papera, that'the charges written about have acualy been made, and bave been commented'en here in Atlanta before they ever reached the outside world. CONDITIONS CHANGE. Chutee L Dawson Reports Snook Trade Claude I. Dawson, satire of Ander son, and now consul at Valencia, Spain, has seat the following to Dally Consular ?nd Trade Reports, Wash ington: . Three yeera ago it waa estimated that some 14,000,000 boxes were util ized annually in the Valencia district for the exportation of its crops of fruits and vegetables, including or anges, mandarins, onions, retains, al monds, lemons, melons and tomatoes. The present consumption to probably the same, more or less, taking into 1 account the variation ia the site of these ?rope fro? year to year and the demands of foreign marketa for Valencia producta.
