Man's Life is Full of
Strange Contraries
Bomobody has figured It out thnt
n innn's life Is made up of n strnngo
lot of contraries. Ho comes Into tho
world without being consulted nnd
usually quits It against his will.
When ho's little tho big girls kiss him
when ho Is grown only tho little onet
do. If ho's pcor, ho's n bad malinger
If ho's rich ho'a dishonest. If ho
possesses ability, ho falls to get a
chance to show it; If he has nono,
he Is pushed Into tho most consplcu
ous placos. If ho needs credit, ho
can't get It; If ho Is prosperous
ovoryono wants to do him n favor. If
ho doosn't glvo to charity, ho'a
tight-wad; If ho does its for show.
If ho Is actively religious, ho's
hypocrlto; If ho takes no Interest In
religion, ho's a hardened sinner. If
he shows affection, he's a soft speel
mon; If ho Booms to caro for no ono,
ho'a cold-blooded. If ho tries to bo
frlondly, ho Is an oasy mark; If ho
doesn't ho's stuck up.If he dies young
thoro was a groat futuro ahoad of
him, It ho lives to an old ago, ho Ins
missed his calling. 'What's tho use?"
Big Crop of Apples
Mrs. D, L. Pago says Hood River Is
not so much. She has ono tree In hor
lawn that Is in full bearing this year
and sho gathered tho crop of apples
tho other day and filled ber cellar
bins and all the boxes and barrels
about thoplaco and then did not have
all tho apples In, Wo do not know
tho size of her cellar, but If It is as
large as tho average, that tree must
bo a whopper. Really, though, there
Is not tho least doubt but Immenso
crops of apples could bo grown here,
and just as flue looking as those
of Hood Rlvor, If proper care wero
taken of them, Tho only advantage
Hood River could have In the apple
line would bo In tho keeping qualities
and perhaps in the color, having
more sunshine there than here. Bat
we do not need to grow apples be
yond our family use, which may be
done on any little town lot.
The post office department has
decided that children going to and
from school chall not bo allowed to
get their parent's mall, so do not
blame the postmaster if your chil
dren are refused the mail. The post
office habit among the children has
become a nuisance both to the public
and the postmaster, and the depart
ment has done wisely In making
this decision. Ex.
Not the libel on your papsr.

The roses for which the North Pa
