—A large audience greeted Blind
Boone at the Christian Church last
night, and he gave them a fine en-
tertainment. Upon his invitation to
any one to come up and play a piece,

Blind Boone reproduced almost with-
out a mistake. The singers with the
troupe were also fine.
"WHERE THE CROWDS C,0."
"THE HALF BREED
Practically everyone has heard the expression, "Lo, the pooi*
Indian." It does not mean "Behold the poor Indian;" Lo is
the Indian's name. The expression comes from a celebrated
story by Bret Harts, called "In the Carquinex Woods," in which
the central character is Lo Dormante, a halt breed Indian. Why
Lo should be pitied may now be seen on the screen, for
Triangle has just made the novel into a picture called "The

HE WHO LAUGHS.
It was the mother of Goethe, the great German
poet, who said: "He who laughs can commit no
serious sin." That is as true now of mankind as
it was in the days of the author of the quotation.
The man who laughs is generally the man to be
trusted. Laughing is a matter of civilization, but
it is the one thing which has improved civilized
man. A hearty laugh at a breakfast will help di-
gest even a soggy toast and muddy coffee, and will
everybody in a good humor. It is of men who
never laugh of whom traitors are made. The day
has passed when solemn face meant the outward
semblance of a Christian. Under the enlighten-
ment of this century, the Christian is the smiling,
laughing man. It would be a good plan for the
public school teachers to teach the pupils to laugh
along with their arithmetic and grammar. A good
laugh is worth more than all the sighs of the
world, and with Ecerson one may say. "Nothing
will supply the want of sunshine to the peaches,
and to make knowledge valuable, you must have
the cheerfulness of wisdom."
Mawson. while on his great polar
Congress will meet next Tuesday
night at 7:30. All members of the de*
bating club are urged to be present.

serious. The horse did not run far.

cross bar of the thills, breaking the
ends of the thills so they ran into
the ground, then the horse fell and

horse. Clyde got out without being
injured other than a good shaking up,
but his buggy is considerable ' the
worse for the wear.
