Life no doubt is paved with enjoy

extent, enable us to escape from oup

"It happened this way. About 4
p. m. a very nice-appearing man of
the working class came Into my office
and asked for me. I saw him and
asked him his business. He told me
he had seen my name In the papers,
and as his name was the aame as
mine be thought, the names being
so unusual, he would call on me.
He was very unmistakably Eng

of some Interest, even though I hard
ly thought he was In my class. Still
he might have been a hnrd-up titled
nobleman working for bis living, as
some of the best ot them do rather
than sponge It off somebody else.
He talked along about his family
and where they lived and asked me
where mine came from and said he

- On His Dignity.
Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney, who
has equipped a $250,000 field ambu
lance for the allies, told many inter
esting war stories during her recent
visit to America.
"The new English army is wonder
ful," she said at a studio tea In New
York. "The officers themselves are
surprised at the rapidity with which
the young English volunteer can be
trained into a splendid soldier. Of
course, though, amusing mistakes
often happen before the military rules
'An English officer told me of an In
cident which occurred in his regiment.
One day the colonel had to reprimand
severely a recruit. The next day this
recruit was on sentry duty when the
colonel passed by. Noticing that the
sentry failed to give him the usual
salute, the colonel intentionally passed
him a second and even a third time.
To his astonishment the salute was
each time omitted.
"'Do you know who I am?' the
colonel asked Indignantly.
" 'Yes, sir,' the sentry answered.
"'Don't you know you ought to sa
lute me, then?' pursued the colonel
"Aye, but,' said the sentry, 'thee
and me fell out yesterday.' "
For Love of the Work.
The Russia of today has no social
life, Us women have no thought of
dress and amusement. All are work
ing for their country, and an excep
tional number of the women of edu

qualified to be of service to the
wounded soldiers. Speaking of her
country, the wife of a Russian at
tache In London Bald: "Perhaps the
women of Russia study medicine and
nursing more generally than is the
case elsewhere, for In Russia the
poorer classes look more naturally to
those who are blessed with a larger
share of this world's goods for care
and protection. This feeling is now
on the decline in towns, but in coun

Through some slight error In the use
of the old Hebrew letters It seems that
the official seal of Yale university has
been embellished with the motto,
"Blasphemers and Farmers," instead
of "Light and Truth." This may em
phaslze anew the old saying that a
little knowledge is a dangerous thing,
but the fearful mistake should never
have been exposed. If the wise ones

From ancient days Regului has
beon one of the favorite stars of
mariners and so-called astrologers.
The ancient names designated It as

Regulus, and once a month the moon

In a negro district a member was on

The evidence went to show that the

WONDERfUL HOW RESINOL
STOPS ITCHING AT ONCE
To those who have endured for
fears the itching torments of eczema
sr other such skin-eruptions, the relief
that the first use of reslnol ointment
ind reslnol soap gives Is perfectly in-
jredlble. After all the suffering they
have endured and all the useless treat
ments they spent good money for, they
annot believe anything so simple,
mild and inexpensive can stop the itch
ing and burning INSTANTLY! And
they find it still more wonderful that
the Improvement is permanent and
that reslnol really drives away the
eruption completely in a very short
time. Perhaps there Is a pleasant sur
prise like this in store for you. Res

All of Tomato Utilized.
Italy harvests about 22,000 acres of
tomatoes yearly, and the wastage
amounts to practically nothing. The
skins and seeds, formerly discarded,
are now utilized, the former as stock
feed and the latter as a source ot oil.
The crude oil is suitable for soap
making and for lamps, and the refined
product is said to be edible.
True greatness first of all is a thing
of the heart. It is all alive with ro

lead Its march, It cannot slumber, for
activity is a necessity ot its existence.
It is no reservoir, but a fountain.
