Nothing of the l>ke hail ever been

Why Kettles Sing.
The reason a kettle "sings" Is a
very simple one. As the water get*
hot little bubbles of steam are found
at the bottom of the kettle. Theae In
their rush upward strike the sides of
the kettle and set the metal it is
made of in vibration thus causing the
humming sound we call singing You
will notice a copper kettle, which has
thin sides, will make a much louder
and more musical note than a com-
mon iron kettle.
The Wisdom of the Serpent.
The serpent tempted the woman not

Business Courtesy.
The adage, "Courtesy costs noth-
ing,' would, if true, offer sufficient rea-
son to Insure its observance by prac-
tically every member of the commer-
cial community; it being fairly obvi-
ous to most of us that courtesy is an
excellent lubricant for the machinery
of business, however, requires a very
considerable expenditure of mental
effort, which very few of ub are ca-
pable of sustaining at all times.

Varied Mental Diet.
Monotony of thought Is the destruc-
tion of the brain. Watch yourself
and give your mind a varied diet.
Force yourself to put away all
noughts of your life work for a few
hours every day, and for a few weeks
every year. Learn to be frivolous if
you are engaged in serious work, and
earn to be seriouB if your work is of
a humorous or light character. The
brain, like the body, needs more than
one kind of food to keep in health.
