Something to Think About

A LITTLE girl sees o doll, ami ln-
stantly tliere conies a yearning
In her heart to clasp tl.e doll to her
breast and cull It her own.
She raises her delighted face to her
mother and stretches out her chubby
bands In pleadings that cuniiot be de-
A boy craves n Knife, and lie holds
to his wish until lie gets It gratified.
Then he proceeds boy-fashion to nick
tilings, which he has leeen forbidden
to cut and finally gashes his linger.
As the girl and the boy grow older
their desires undergo u radical change.
With accumulated experience and
knowledge, they seek more substantial
possessions, good opinions, or a par-
ticular pluce in the world where they
may become conspicuous and power- ;
And thus all through life their de-
sires grow, assume new forms, urge
them forward or backward, mold their
character for good or evil and shape
• • • •
The desire to do good Is the most
ennobling thought man or woman can
It is the only desire that does not
warp the soul with selfishness or de-
To build up images and to yearn
for things which can be of no perma-
nent use to us or to our fellow beings.
Is but a waste of energy which ought
to be put to better use.
President Harding longs to bring
peace to the world.

THE ROMANCE OF WORDS
rpHOUGH evory school child
•*- knows that Mississippi menus
"The Father of Waters," the
fact that the word was original-
ly spelled "Meehe Sepe" is ap-
parent only from a study of
the Indian source. And even
this is onJy an approximation
of the way the piirase should
he written, for the Algonquins
had no written language which
could he transplanted literally
into English letters.
The lirst form in which we
tind the name of the river Ih
"Miche Sepe," suggested by Ton-
ti and slightly closer to the
present spelling. Father Laval
stLll further modernized it into
Michlspi, which another priest,
Father Labatt, softened into
Misisipi. Since then, the only
changes have been to overload
the word with consonants. Mar-
quette added the tirst "s" and
some other explorer the second,
making it "Mississipi"—the form
in which it is used in France to
this day, with only one "p." The
man who added the other lias
never been discovered, but he
must have been an American
for, at tiie time of Louisiana
Purchase, the name was gen-
erally spelled in the colony
with a single "p."

There is a growing wish everywhere
among the enlightened to eliminate
the parasite, by urging everybody to
useful effort, especially the young and
those inclined by reason of their
wealth to waste tjiejr tiaie In idleness.
What is your chief desire?
Is it something of a selfish nature,
agreeable or pleasure bringing, or
something which will some day prove
a lasting benefit and blessing to all
There Is one Intense, compelling ex-
pectation In the heart of every human
being which controls his or her life.
What is yours?
If It Is good, buckle on the armor
of faith, put jealousy, selfishness and
fear behind you and make yourself

I LONG for thu days of the barlow
And the sore toe tied with yarn;
For the "mutnblepeg" and the "Bos-

In flic shade of the moss-grown baru,
I even yearn for a stone-bruised heel,
Or a back burned red by the sun;
For the old time zest for :ny couch

I long for the days of the "sight un-

For my old-time place down at second

Or the thumb with a ragged split;
Or the old-time lump 011 my bulging

And tlie "swish" of the old tish-llne;
For the "crockrles," "aggies,"' "gla

I even yearn for the blistered hands
That come from the old grub hoe;
For the appetite that came with night

For the sunny hours when my boyish

And dream of the days pone by.
SNOW Ql'EEN'S IfOlil.

piped Mr. Chickadee, as he caught
sight of his neighbor perched on a
lower limb of the tree where he had
"(iood morning," replied Mr. Snow-
bird in a friendly tone, 'but i really
should not be called by that name.
Chick, as the real snowbirds belong
to the tinch family and are also called
Snow Huntings, Whltoblrds and Snow
Larks, as well as Snowbirds and Bnow-
"So you see I should be called by
my real name—Junco. 1 know you
do not often see Snowtlakes, they are
always in great flocks, you know, and
1 am telling you this so you will not
think I am trying to steal their name."

"Well, as I do not know flint fam-
ily as well as I do yours, I guess
I will keep right on calling you Snow-
bird, and If I am not mistaken, we
will have plenty of snow in a day <>r

"Whirr, whirr," said the wild wind
as it circled about the tree where Mr.
Chickadee and Mr. Junco *;W, "whirr,
whirr, you are quite right, Mr. Chick,
we shall have snow In a short time and
while the snowtlakes seem to dance
down from the sky to you. I know 't '
Is the Snow Queen who really shakes
them from the long white feathery
robe she wears."
"What Is that you are saying about
the Snow Queen?" Inquired Mr. Junco. !
"Whirr, whirr," answered the wild
wind, as It tore the dry leaves from j
the tree and whirled them about lHra
• lancing brown elves on the ground
"Can't you stop whirring n minute
ami tell us what you mean?" asked
Chickadee. "How do you know so
I much about this queen?"
Wild wind calmed a little and came
nearer to the questioning birds, "Mow

1 know when I always go to meet her.
1 am getting ready now, that Is why 1
am whirring and circling about, for
you can never tell Just how the Snow
Queen wishes to be escorted from her
home away up North.
"Sometimes she comes silently and
shakes her feathery robes over the
land and then again she chooses to
come dancing like a mad Queen, shak-
ing her robe of feathery white until
there Is not a feather left and she has
to hurry home and get another robe.
"So you see I have to be prepared
to do her bidding and that Is why I
whirr and act so wild.
Hut If I stay here gossiping I shall
not be ready to escort the Snow Queen,
so I must be off. Good day. You
watch out and soon you will see the
land covered with feathers from her
Away went the wild wind with a
loud whirr, whirr, while the two little
birds snt looking at each other and
wondering If It were all true.
The next day while they sat on a
limb talking It over, little snowtlakes
came dancing down about the tree.

THE SQUARE DEAL
■p*OIt a good many thousand years
leaders of thought and morals have
been trying to establish the square
deal 011 the face of tills earth.
The Uolden Itule Is older than the
Scriptures. Efforts to make men do
as they would be done by date back to
lip to the last reports, none of these
efforts had altogether succeeded.
There is still cheating and lying and
stealing and injustice in the world.
the only time when they are not likely
to be shattered.
Ilut when you start out to fight the
world for your living, the sooner you
realize that you must nt times meet
with Injustice and unfair dealing, the
less likely you will ,ie to cry out that
you failed because every man's hand
was against you.
The world has still a long way to
go in its Journey toward civilization
It will have many setbacks before the
end of the Journey Is reached.
Today, If you find other men deal-
ing unjustly with you, even though you
deal Justly with them, do not be
shocked or surprised.
There are such men In the world—
many of them. Treat them fairly, hut
he prepared for a different kind of
treatment from them, and don't whine
If you receive It.
Be alert to read character. Pick out
honest and straightforward men to
deal with—particularly as employers.
Be on your guard against cheats,
and men who would exploit yoil. They
are always Inferior In Intelligence to
men who do business honestly, and
therefore less likely to be able to he
of service In advancing you.
Don't complain when you are unfair-
ly dealt with, ilrit your teeth and en
dure It. Kind the right kind of people,
who are still abundant, and make
them your friends, aim your company
and vour business associates.
It will be a long hunt, but the re*
suits will reiiay vou the time yog
spend on It.

THE SUNDAY TEA
^XTTTHIN the hist few years the
^^ custom of tea serving on Sunday
afternoon has been growing, especially
In the large cities or city suburbs.
Usually these teas are informal and
there are no special invitations for them
—perhaps that Is why they have proved
so popular. "If you are out Sunday
afternoon, drop In nnd have n cup of
tea with us; the Joneses will probably
be around." That is about all there
Is to the usual imitation. And you
go and the Joneses are there and some
interesting people whom you have
never met and there is perhaps n little
music and If it Is a warm day all
will stroll through the garden and you
jjo home feeling that you are much
better off becatise of this little "tea
To be sure there are some persons
who would feel that this sort of thing
was not quite in keeping with the
spirit of Sunday and those people
you would of course not Invite to
have tea with you on that afternoon,
though the chances are that those
very people would accept an Invitation
to go motoring on that day or would
have dinner at a hotel in order to
lighten their own household cares.
Raster day, like other festive days,
is with ninny people >1 day when they
like to see their friends nnd exchange
the season's greetings nnd for that
reason the Easter Sunday afternoon
tea Is looked upon with favor among
such persons. Whatever may be your
own attitude toward dancing on Sun-
day among most Americans there is
still a prejudice against it, as there
I: against the playing of the "noisier"
sort of dance music. This Is not
really so much a matter of religious
principle with a good many people but
one of respect for time honored cus^
One thing that especially recom-
mends these little Sunday social
gatherings Ih that since most American
men regard It as a normal state of
affairs to have to work for six days
In the week Sunday Is the only
time when we can have an afternoon
party that Is attended hy both meii

THE FINGER NAILS

subject to bodily aliments. It is also
held by some authorities that the pos-
sessors of such mills are In danger of
being Influenced too greatly by the op,
If the nails are long, hut not too
long, and properly proportioned, they
are 1111 Indication of a well-balanced
nature. Of course, this Indication must
be read I11 conjunction with other signs
In the band. But, speaking generally,
the possession of such nails means a
nature that Is nfTable, agreeable, trust-
ful, but not too confiding. "These peo-
ple will from youth understand de-
ceitful purposes," says one authority.
Small, crooked nails or nails that
are bent at the point, or apex, show
ambition, courage and high spirits.
Naturally, such natures are apt to be
self willed and impatient of contra-
diction or opposition.
