The Marion county election fraud
cases are on trial at Salem this

Do not let your child acquire the
habit of grumbling. Stop the first
beginnings and it will never be
come a habit. If there is just
cause of complaint, try to remedy
it; ifthereisno possibility of im
provement, teach that silent endur
ance is the best way to meet the
inevitable. It is never wise to
stay in a place and grumble. If
the things you dislike "cannot be
altered, change your environment.
If on reflection you decide that,
balancing one thing with another
you would rather bear the ills you
know than fly to others that you
know not of, bear th'era in silence.

King Solomon a Warm Number.
An Illinois boy was asked to
write an essay on Masonry, and
here is. what he. wrote: "King
Solomon was a man who lived so
many years in the country that he
was the whole push.1 He was an
awful wise man and one day two
women came to him, each holding
to the Jeg of a baby and nearly
pulling it in two and each claiming
it. And .King Solomon wasn't
feeling right good and he said:
'Why couldn't the brat have been
twins and stopped this bother?'
And then he called for his machete
and was going to Weylerize the
poor, innocent baby, and give each
woman a piece of it. Then the
real mother of the baby said: 'Stop,
Solomon; stay thy, hand. If I
can't have a whole baby I won't
have any.' Then Solomon told
her to take the baby and wash its
face, for be knew it was hers. He
told the other woman to chase
herself. He built Solomon's temple
and was the father of Masons. lie
had several hundred wives and three
hundred lady friends, and that's
why there are so many Masons in
the world. My pa says King Solo
mon was a warm number and I
think so my self."
