IN YOUJl HOUSE.
t YOU are not a careful reader of
the lilbla you may have the Idea
that all the miracles which' it details
are In the New Testoment, but If yon
will turn to the fourth chapter of
II Kings you may read an enter
taining story of one of the remarkable
things performed by hllsha In the
nitiltljJIoatlon of the pot of oil.
Ellsha performed many miracles,
but of them all this one Is perhaps
the most Interesting.
A widow, one of the wives of the
sons of the prophets, tells Kllsha that
her creditors have come to take her
two twins as bondmen In settlement of
what she owes.
Ellsha asks her what she has In
the bouse which might be available
to settle the debt. Her reply la that
her only possession Is a pot of oil.
At bis direction the wotnan sends
her sons to gather oU the empty re
ceptncles in the neighborhood and
when they have been brought she
obeys the command of Ellshn that
she shrill pour from the pot of oil Into
the empty vessels and this she con
tinues to do until all are filled and
then she sells enough of the store of
oil to pay her debts nnd there is sulll
clent left to supply her and her sons.

The trouble with most of us Is thnt
we never value very hlgldy the possi

The apple on the high brnnch al
ways looks bigger nnd fairer to us

The Job Ihnt the other fellow has
always seems easier und more satis

The other man's lot always seems
phasiinter thnn ours nnd his pros

The trouble Is we do not pmirly

Success Is made up entirely of whnt
we hove and bow we use It.
No man was ever born who did not
.have the possibility of success.
No man ever uvea who uia nor
hnve plenty of opportunity to suc

en excuse for his failure.

THE demand for the trulned li

many young women are leaving the
regular library to take up allied work
that pays better.
The new demand outside of the reg
ular library comes from big business
corporations who want their business
organized. Special literature of all
borts Is part of their dully material,
and they see the need of a proper In
dexing for nil this material, and for
milking It available for Immediate use
as the books In n library are available.
Asldo from the bigger concerns are
suclr clients us a lawyer or a doctor

often have a whole lltrary that Is use

If the widow hod decided, despite
the directions of Ellsha, that the pot
of oil had no possibilities of solving
her financial difllcultles, she would
have lost her sons to her creditors
and the whole plan of the restoration
of herself and her family to happi
ness and comfort would have mis
carried. It Is well to know accurately Just
whnt our resources are. We should
know Just what we are capable of
accomplishing and then be sure thnt
the accomplishment Itself Is 100 per
cent of our possibilities. .

LYRICS OF LIFE
By DOUGLAS MALL0CI1
ALL bravery Is not In death.
However glad and glomus
To breathe the gases' toxic breath,
Among the clouds a bird to be.
Or to go gown within the sea
Oh, It Is brave to battJe thus.
And yet not all of bravery.
There Is some bravery In life
That never wins the world's
There Is no thrill In dal'.y strife
To set our pulses leaping high
Yet braver men may live than
May suffer more In some god cause
Than they who now la slumber
All bravery Is merely this:
To live or die, as fate demands,
Dut living, dying, never miss
The duty Conscience makes ri
To know the right, the right
Although it lose us life or lands
And pay no recompense but
To face old Death amid men's cheers.
Yea, that Is bravery Indeed
But to fight on through losing years.
Some unencouraged task to do.
Believe when none believe in
In public smile. In secret bleed

Odd Marriage Customs.
In nil Slav weddings the bride la
fetched by the bridegroom, emblemat
lc of the time when bis forebears car
ried their mates away forcibly. At
Albanian weddings it Is correct for the
brldo to weep aud show great reluct
ance to leaving home. The bride
groom must present the Bride with a
handsome dress for the marriage, no
mntter what his circumstances are, so
that It Js known by all the guests that
the dress the bride Is wearing bhows
the taste of the bridegroom.
