WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 8, 1915 THE BELDING BANNER One of the Lives God Gives Us This is one of the lives God gave us, And whether we ever know more, It is sweet to stand in this promised land Like a little child in a door Like a little child that trembles In awe of the things to see This life, like a thing that dissembles The dream of a life to be! As the one life runs to the many, And the many to one life at last, Thank God for the life that He gives us, And those that may be and are past! For out of this hour is our message, And here in this day is our call This is one of the lives God gives us, To live it as if it were all! Ah, so, let me meet the great chal lenge, And so let me stand in my door, With a smile on my lips like the morning, And dream of the morn to adore! For whatever the past may have given, Or taken away it is now I must look for my all that is heaven, I must strive for the crown on my brow! This is one of the lives God gives us, To be taken, or bitter or sweet; To rise from or like weeds at His feet! And the brave heart sings to the future, That he knows he will find it some where, With his back to the wall as he bat tles, And a smile 'neath his shadow and care! Baltimore Sun. Powr of LyddiU.

At the last session of the State Legislature one of the acts passed by that body was a bill known as the Cigarette bill, and this law has just come in force. The new law is entitled an act to prohibit the selling giving or furnish ing of cigarettes to minors, to pro hibit the use of cigarettes by minors, and prohibiting the harboring of minors for the purpose of indulging in the use of cigarettes. The people of the State of Michigan enact: Section 1. Any person within this state who sells, give to, or in any way furnishes any cigarettes in any form to any person under twenty-one years of age shall be punished by fine not to exceed fifty dollars or impris onment in the county jail for not to exceed thirty days for each offense. Section 2. Any person under twenty-one years of age who shall smoke or use cigarettes in any form, on any public highway, street, alley, park or other lands used for public purposes, or in any public place of business or amusement, may be arrested by any officer of the law, who may be cogniz ant of such offense; and further, it shall be the duty of such officer upon complaint of any person and upon warrant properly issued to arrest such offenders and take them to the proper court. In case the offender is found guilty the court may impose a penalty in its discretion in the sum not to exceed ten dollars or imprison ment in the county jail not to exceed five days for each offense. Section 3. Any person who know ingly harbors any person under twenty-one years of age, or grants to them the privilege of gathering upon or fre quenting any property, or lands held by him, for the puropse of indulging in the use of cigarettes in any form, NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS Eureka Farmer Retires Greenville W.

Oleomargarine The following article is printed from the Chicago Daily News of Aug ust 22. It corrects an error in the minds of a great many people regard ing the properties and food value of oleomargarine: "Historically oleomargarine has an interesting part.

Investigating housewives have learned that in each factory is station- ed a government inspector whose duty , it is to see that only proper mater ials are used, that the factory and I utensils are in a clean and sanitary condition. On their inquiry into the J the food values they found that the prominent scientists of both Europe ana America agreed mat oleomargar ine is not only clean, wholesome, and readily digestible, but that it has high food value, containing as it does the same elements chemically as butter. Now that the housewives, backed by facts, have conquered their prejudices, they have found that oleomargarine is better for cooking and baking pur poses, than the ordinary cooking but ter, and its use in the kitchen has be come general. If there are still skep tical housewives on the subject of oleomargarine tell them to make a pil grimage to some near by factory and become convinced and converted. See F. II.

I have read that no poem was ever written to a nose. Can you, offhand, recall a single rapturous or even admir ing description of one? I search my memory in vain, but produce instead one instance that has always interested mo by neglect You recall that little poem of Rrownlng's, "A Face." the brief and charming description of a girl's profile against a background of gold. Tho "matchless mold" of softly parted lips, the neck "three fingers might surround" and the "fruit shaped perfect chin" all receive their due of praise; the nose, a seeming necessity In any profile, Is not even mentioned. It may be as well; each reader supplies in tho lovely face the line that suits him best The poet may have feared that by its mere mention he would pro duce the effect too often given by the noso in real life a heaviness that mars an otherwise charming face.
