Secretary of State Olcott, to show bis appreciationof t he good work of the employes in his department, Tuesday evening had them all down to the Ma rion hotel for a "family" reunion and dinner. There were 32 of them, and be sides these the newspaper representa tives who "make" the state house, and Col. Hofer were also guests. It goes without saying the menu was the very best, and as an extra "filler" there was the results of the secretary's hunt ing trip to the coast, in the shape of several big fat canvas-backs. There was something doing every min ute, and some of the stunts were new and decidedly fun-provoking. Among these was an auto, made for the occa sion to keep the girls of that depart ment from getting lonesome. It was originally a cart, but when it got its split gown on, and its headgear proper ly feathered, it was an "Oldsmobiler" for keeps. Another thoughtful little thing that touched the secretary deeply was when about the orneriest little red dog that ever missed the pound, was brought in wearing a label: "Puppo." There were pleasing and suggestive toasts and happy responses, and there were telegram of all kinds and for ev erybody. S. A. Kozer, the genial dep uty secretary was given a hunch by some thoughtful friends that hiB wife would be home on the 9 o'clock train, and for him to beat her to it.

There were dozens of other telegrams that kept the grapevine wire busy and everybody amused, t wns 10 o'clock bofore good nights wero snid, and it was an evoning all attending will long remember. A miin doesn't mind moving from one limine to another, because, ho can sleep anywhere. But when lio finds his favor ite miloon has closed bo gets mad all over and wanders around until ho finds another place where tho bar will fit his elbows and where the footrail isn't too high. At any rate, the United States is not carrying on a war in Mexico.

"Rolling his own" becomes a second nature with him. lie takes the keenest pleasure in fashioning his own cigarettes with his own hands, to his own liking, and is proud of his skill.

A TrfTTQri l :W A VN s. wk jj mm ma -i 'IL.dli 444 STATE STREET "THE QUALITY SHOE STORE" WISHES EVERY ONE A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR This Year's Opportunity Year are but artificial divisions of eternity. They, might as well be counted from one date as another. Yet each first of January we seem to take new courage. We seem to feel that the slate upon which have been record ed our deeds and misdeed s for the past twelvemonth has been wiped clean. Instinctively we seem to realize that a fresh chance for better work is before us, a record yet to be made, an opportunity that is all in front of us. Each New Year's Day we make solemn resolutions, some of them, sad to relate, to be broken the day after. Each year we set high aims and lose sight of them before -we have really settled them in our minds. Each year up on its natal day we attack our work with an energy that is often spent in the first few moments of its use. Yet resolutions, even though broken, are better than a failure to even try, High aims, een though unrealized, are an inspiration that lifts us up above a lower course. Energy, though partly spent, will carry one farther than will total inertia. This year we make one resolution to make the most of our opportunities. For us that will mean that we will strive to make REINHART'S SHOES even better than they are now if such a thing be possible; that we will strive to be even more useful and practical to our customers; that we will set an even higher standard of business dealings and service. For you, making the most of opportunity in the shoe line, at least will consist of an increasing use of REIN HART SHOES, which are made for us by the world's best shoemakers.
