We may think if Is tolerant,' but
It is Imperative. ; It is a hard task

the fittest survive. The man who

the man who cannot say "no," is
the victim of his own credulity

V Complaint - Is made that cutting
of Christmas trees is waste In that
the young stock la taken- We take
it that the evergreen tree performs
its best purpose when It is used
In Christmas exercises; In add!
tion to that there were thousands
of young trees, almost millions ot
them growing in the . fir regions
and -they need thinning out. There
is no economic loss in cutting
these trees, and certainly a fir tree
could perform no nobler, purpose
than to use to gladden the homes
of the country;- l '- " ; ; 5 . ;
Ot course there must be econ

trees for the express purpose of

The best definition of a lady is
a woman who makes anyone feel
perfectly polite all the time. This
definition was recently given by a
school girl, but its application is
so ; general that i t does not even
need to be applied to women. We
must confess that we do not have
at polite age. : The subtle refine
ments of life are rudely jostled by
what is commonly called good fel
lowship. -.The few really polite
people are at a premium' because
they .bend, neither , forward .nor
backward. . It ls almost as bad to
be too rigid as too lax,; but the
happy medium, the -upstanding
man or' woman, has a softening
and. mellowing effect upon every
community in the country. .
; In many places where a public
nurse Is regarded as an experiment
and not accepted as a fact, ' the

quickly. And though she looked
back ' at me as unwinkingly, there
was an expression which flashed
into-her eyes before she could con

that I had scored. . And I was ex

use a little common sense. If you

as billy goats have whiskers. '
If you have skates or a bicycle,
don't take them, apart either. They

If you got a sled, there Is one
thing you can do to It without
hurting It. ' If you want to make
it go faster and easier, take some

This will take the paint off and
leave a smooth surface of polished

, Whatever you received, or did
not receive as a present, act happy
over it, because the folks who sent
you things probably thought that
they, were giving you just what
you wanted and they sent a lot

appreciates the thing I sent him
