A Land Office Suggestion.
Dear Mr. Secretary:
With the sincere wish to
to lighten the burdens of the head of
a great d* partnient «»( nor govern*
nvut, we have a fr-w t umble suggvM
ioun to moke relative to’ the’ hiovHig
of the V. S. Office'from GftJg
ory. Thatjt is for the liest intercuts
yf the public that it should lie motykl
|foes ttfthout saying, for have not the
Commercial ('tubs. Boards of Trade,
Jodie’s Auxiliaries. Y. 'M. As; and
nhmennls other orgnnMtfton* 6f'M 1
most every other c ity, town or village
in western South DakeifM -mid so.
That they wish this inorO made solely
for the lienrlit of the homesteader is
apparent.
Personally. we have made uo effort
to g' t a laud office nor even a tem
porary filing |M>int. We also would
Ife pleased th see each and every one
of our neighbors with a land office,
temporary’and*permanent filing point
and all the hthhr good things which
they want anil are striving for.
But in view i»f the fact that some
must lie diswa pointed ami all cannot
get the plum. - why not make a com
promise and (Hadden the hearts of all.
if only tor a brief spell.
A traveling circus, in the old days,
•xercirvd no such monopoly as stay
ing in one town for many years.
They were liberal in their patronage
and moved from town to town, mak
ing one night stands. Who ever
h 'ard anv kick on their svstem?
Why nut hud this said land office
on a goud big wagon and allow it to
make the rounds through Tripp.
Mellette and even a little run into
Lyman county. We would all be
satisfied and could advertise that for
•’One Day Only." we had the I’. S.
laud office in our midst, the filing
point for the Kosvdud country-
THE GLASSES YOU WEAR.
A great uumlier of people one
meets these days veur glasses but
some don't wear the right kind and
therefore fail to see things clear
y. They think the trouble is with
the objects they look at and that
they are warped or out of proportion,
whereas the fault is in the lense
through which they look.
Th»*re sre *ome who never see beau
ty in any other person, nil characters
are distorted tn them and they sec.
only the faults, the imperfections and
thtf blemishes of peoples frites. They
never have a word of commendation
for any piece nf work anybody else
does. They are to he pitied who
have eyes and see not. We should
train ourselves to see the lovely in
each other and in nature and learn to
wear the glasses of love and charity.
The aspect of all life’s events would
be changed if we wore the right kind
of glasses. To many person>. life
has nothing bright for it is made up
chiefly of things which produce dis
content. complaining and fault find-
ing. Everything set ms wrong, they
exaggerate* their trials and * see h
calamity in the smallest mishap.
If they could iu some way change
their glasses so that they could see
things in the light of Christian faith
and trust, all things would be tnins
fonned for them.

If you blush. put on glasses. ad
vises Dr. 11. Campbell. j\b English
physician. Not tin oust ’io conceal

Or. no-but regular glast glasses,
“strong convex lenses.** hff says la the
Practltltloner. And thlk is how be

“The artificial myopia thus induced
by blurring the surrounding* tends to
diminish self-consciousnesi. The fe
male sex Is more apt to blusb than
the male sei. Although mure men
than admen seek medical help for
morbid blushing "
Among the 'horrible example*’'
which Dr. Campbell .came across in
practice were those ot ‘£ young man
who was obliged tn leave the army
because of blushing: of a physician,
forty years old, who abandoned bls
practice because of It: of a minister,

Fidgeting Children.

Ils brain will work quickly, and it will
without doubt be clever.

when they are older the wise parent
will not Insist on their keeping still
