Give the best there is in you to your job and to life arid you will have neither time or inclination to complain of others. A lot of people enjoy newspaper attack on the other fallow, but if by chance it comes their way what a dif f érence it does make! - No matter how humble your position may be; you are just as important in the general scheme of things as any one. Master yours job; don't let it master you. Doe3 advertising pay? Ask and successful business man. Certain kinds of advertising are a waste consis tent advertising, plus punch, will bring results many times over. IS IT LOGICAL? How can labor leaders expect a return to normal conditions when they are doing everything in their power to prevent such a return? Strikes at this time are a crime against the nation and are simply prolonging iudustrial stagnation and increasing unemployment. EVIDENTELY A LIMIT A western cándidate for Congress, by no means not ed as a shrinking violet type, in the course of his speech said. "I can milk a tow, shoe a horse, plow a straight fur row. I am just the kind of a man you should have in Congress." "There is nothing around a farm I can't to." Voice from the rear: "Can you lay an egg?"

And then he Wijl go Down Town and Pester his Friends to Death, Bragging about what a Bright Child he's the Father of Which. CLASSIFIED LINERS A nation wide Drinters strike has been authorized to enforce the demand for a 44-hour week at 48 hours pay. This is the opening wedge for the 44-hour week in all trades. It is the scientific and approved method of the labor radical for raising wages and cutting production. . Tt is the stroner arm method of screwing the last nickle out of the employer. It fs estimated that the demand for printed matter has fallen off 40 per cent and machines which stenograp hers can operate are now on the market and being instal led bv thousands of firm3 to ünnt all their forms, bill heads, advertising letters, envelopas, etc. Its a poor time for the printers to demand yet higher pay and shorter hours. Newspapers and job shops in all narts of the countrv are closing while those that are financially' able are adopting the open shop policy. Ttte typographical union's ultimatum for a 44-hour week is driving one more nail in-the coffin of organized labor dictation at public expense.

Mchl-6tpd The Federal Trade Commission has just issued a sum mary of its repo'rton the Pacific coast petroleum industry. After all that one has heard about combination to control oil prices the report fails to show any such tend ency nor is there any intimation to such a condition ex ists. The report also shows that while recent earnings of the leading companies have been very good, the' earnings in 1914 and 1915 were far from satisfactory, considering the risk involved in the business. Conditions in the California petroleum industry and its Drofits and losses are not 'exceptional compared to other sections of the United Stated. As to the future, the commission recommends that the active support of the government be given those en gaged in the oil industry to develop production in foreign countries; that methods of drilling for petroleum and the utilization of petroleum products and their substitutes should be a subject of special study m technological and economic aspects with a view to conserving the supply: 4Lm4 ikM 4- ímrtAiifq ta rf ínÍArm otmn . ffioco in I Growth.

Some people are In a constant state of hurry which borders on confusion, because they never begin in time, never make the right sort of preparation, and never top long enough to calm their minds in order to get their bearings. Birds That Speak. Raveas, crows and magpies are all better speakers than parrots. They are not so versatile and the sounds they utter are less varied, but their voices and articulation are far more, human. A crow's talk In the next room may easily be mistaken for that of a person. Parrots are the best im itators; that is to say. they mimic whistling and other noises, narticular- ly laughing, to admiration. It has been remarked that their voices in speakine are like that of a crazy person. O Feeding the Bedridden. Administering liquid food or medl --lne to persons lying on their backs 'n bed is difficult, even for u trained nurse. A novel hospital drinking glass overcomes this difficulty, says Popular Mechanics Magazine. The lower por tion of the vessel is similar In shape ' an ordinary tumbler. On top of this Is a tapering hood, which is pro vided with an eccentrically placed, slanting opening. If not more thnn half filled the device can be held in a nearly horizontal position without pilling the contents. O BIG CHIEF IS LEGION BOSS Only Full-Fledfled Indian at Head of an Ex-Service Men's Organization in America. Maj. A. B. Welch of Mandan, N.

He is now the duly elected chief of the Sioux, in addition to his duties as commander of the Gilbert S. Fur ness post of the Legion at Miindnn. A veieran of the ' Spanish-American war aiid a partlcipánt in the Mexican bonier expedition, as well as nn au thority on customs, sports and ceremo nies of the Indians, citizens of North Dakota were eager that Major Welch should lead a battalion- of Indians to France. Major Welch volunteered to do so. but his offer was refused by the War department. Nevertheless, a number of Indians were included in the detachment of men which Major Welch took to France in December, 1917. lie served upon the sniff of Gen. Hunter A. Liggett and on Armistice day was with the artil lery of the Third division, south of Se dan. When he arrived in Germany he was named as officer in charge of civil affairs in the Coblenz area, which po sition he held until the divisions came back to the United States in Septem ber, 1910.

WELCH. capture of Paco, Morong and other towns along the shores of Laguna de Bahía, including the important city of Calamha.

The original English pound was de rived from the weight of 7.6SO grains of wheat taken from the middle of the ears and well dried. This remained the standard from the. time of William the Conqueror to the time of Henry VIII, In whose reign the avoirdupois pound of 7.000 grains came Into use. This was established as the standard pound during the reign of Queen Eliz abeth and has been continued to the present day.
