There are many little things to
annoy us, under present conditions
of life. The hurry, hard work,
noise and strain all tell on us and
tend to provoke nervousness and
irritability. We are frequently so
worn out we can neither eat, sleep
nor work with any comfort. We
are out of line with ourselves and
others as well.
A good thing to do under such
circumstances is to take something

«teMrs- J• B. Hartsfield, 33 Corput St.,

"I have on several occasions been

which I keep constantly on hand for
the use of myself, husband and two

Birds in proportion to their
weight probably cat more than any
other living thing. It is a mystery
to naturalists how the ringdove
flics after its accustomed meal. One
dove was found with iSOO peas in its
crop, another in captivity was
known to eat ISO beechnuts at a
time, and a third devoured sixty
acorns. The robin often eats two
snd a half times its weight in twen
ty-four hours, while a barnyard hen
with chicks has been observed to
resume eating 4 75 times in the
course of a day. The diet of a cer
tain species of hawk comprises about
2,000 mice in the course of a month,
besides other food. In the mouth
of a young heron were found three
trout, each weighing three-quarters
of a pound. Another was found
with seven small trout in its mouth,
a mouse and a thrush, evidently on
its way to its nest. The growing
bird seems to have an appetite equal
to that of an adult.—Harper's.
Mexico City's Little Trojan Horse.
One of the chief works of art in
the City of Mexico is the bronze
equestrian statue of Charles IV. It
is called "The Iron Horse" and
"The Little Horse." It stands in
the Plaza de la Rcforma. Visible
from many directions, it serves for
a landmark to visitors unacquaint
ed with the southwestern part of
the city. It was, according to Perry's
"Mexico," the first important bronze
statue made in America. Hum
boldt declared it the second fir est
equestrian statue in the world, the
first being, in his opinion, that of
Marcus Aurelius at Rome. It has
ever been unpopular with the Mexi
cans. It has occupied several sites
in the city, and its several removals
have caused it to be dubbed "El
Cabilito de Troya" (the Little Tro

Mistresses say housekeeping is
wearisome and disheartening. There
are many maids ready to draw good
pay and few ready to do good work.
Many do not know how to work
well, and most do not want to work
well. They all want to get much
and give little.
Maids say housework is tiresome
and discouraging. There are lots
of mistresses read)' to ask for good
work and very few ready to give
good conditions. Lots of them do

most of them do not want to deal
fairly. They all want to get much
and give little.—Annie Winson in

Who had given him a serious knock.

From white, unheard of mountains

Then—against them, too—things came out.

The whispered hope of more
The bending of the boy god's bow
What time the string and arrow
The blissful signet to the vow
