Interesting Sketches from New
Veur'8 Sermon by Hev. Spear.
o 't'eueli V to Nu tuber eur Iay
Thut we Muy Apply ourllrt
I Jut why number our days? Wliy be
thinking of trie brevity and uncertain
ty of life? It is that we may apply our
hearts unto wWorn. It is that we may
make the most of each day and Its op
portunities. There are two wa.s of
spending our days. One is to think
little of swift moving time and simply
to drift along until at last we drift in
to the great beyond. The other way
is to number cur days, to have a pur
pose in each day and to plan and strive
to rtalize that purpose. Wo accom
plish that which we plan for and set
our will to, no man ever drifted Into
true greatness.
The days of the new year will soon
bo past. How short a time since last
new year. Sometimes In early child
hood the years seem to drag. The child
of live or six sighs for the year when it
shall be a grown up person. How long
from the fourth of July to Christmas
and from Christmas to the fourth of
July, but Low different when one has
become grown up. The years speed
away to fast that gray hairs begin to
creep in when life Is scarce begun;
How like a mighty avalanche slow Its
progess at first but as It moves on its
down war i course its ever inereuslng
velocity scon tnj ivs it in the fat horn
less ocean. "So te.ieh us to number our
days that we may apply our hearts un
to wisdom
Days in their llight never look back
ward Days that are passed never
return. Day follows night but it is a
new day. Time never wails nor re
turns. The water turns the wheel,
goes on its ceaseless course, after it
pHs-es t he mill it is forfcver gone, how
tho water is utilized at the mill, in no
way affects it in its onward course to
the ocean. If the mill race was full of
leaks and the water was wasted or if it
was all used in turning the wheel to a
bad purpose, It matters not, the water
will not return to accommodate a leakv
mill rece or any unwise miller. So
with time, how many leaky places for
minutes and hours to slip away and
waste! How nun times we use our
hours and minutes but to no good pur
pose! Hut know thou thut time will
never pity your foTly and return. Time
moves quietly or without a backward
These precious days your lives are
numbered. There are only a c rtain
nvniher allotted to each life. Every
day of this newycar will take otT one
of that life number. Every day has
certain possibilities for ev.ry life.
The possibilities of an entire life are
simply the possibilities of all of the
days of that life. To fall to make the
mot of any day is to trample under
foot, that many possibilities f the
highest attainment In life. The high
est possible attainment in life 1 the
result of the highest pissiblo use of
every day of life. To waste a day Is to
cut olf some of the possibilities of the
highest attainment. You cm never
improve an opportunity that is lost;
you can never spend nor use a day that
i gone. Time is f-o swift; life is so
short. Oh, let us number our days

Cod liver oil is in universal re
pute as the best body builder in
wasting diseases, and the best
reconstructor in recovery from
severe sickness known to medicine.
Nevertheless, three-fourths of
the people are really made sick by
the taste and ftmellnf cod liver oil.
Half of thc.i can't take it. Their
stomachs cither reject it, or are so
upset by it that the dose docs
more harm than good.
Vinol is the only preparation of
cod liver oil which contains no
grease or bad taste yet does con
tain all the virtue of cod liver
oil, and is dcliciously palatable. It
also contains organic iron. Iron
gives quality tothe blood. Almost
every ailing person needs it.
The combination of these two
elements with table wine is both
scientific and effective. It has
accomplished wonderful things
right here in town. We think
we arc doing a service to every
run-down, ailing, coughing, ner
vous, dcbiltatcd person in calling
attention to Vinol. We sell it on
its merits money back if it docs
not help you. You run no risk.
Old people revive under its influ
ence. ' Nursing mothers and over
worked people get new vitality.

"It Is almost like n courtship. First,

the girl nil about and then"
"And then," Interrupts the-man who

get married and he goes to the bank

he wises to be frozen." (For tle bene

The minuteness of t ho parts of a
watch is shown by the following fig
ures: It takes ir0,(HH) of one certain
kind of watch screws to make a pound.
The pivot of the balance wheel is only
one-two-hiindi'odths of an inch in diam
eter. Each jewel hole into which a
pivot fits is about one fi ve-thousantbs
onn inch larger than the pivot, to
permit sudieient play. The finest
screw for a small sized watch has a
thread of 'J'.o to the Inch and weighs
one-one-hundred and-thirty-thousandths
of a pound. A pallet Jewel weighs one
one-hundied-and tifty-thousiindths of a
pound: a roller jewel a little more
than one - two - hundred-and-tifty-slx-thousandths.
The largest round hair
spring stud is four-one hundredths of
an inch in diameter and about nine
