For an editor to write a favorable treatise on February H about
as easy as it is for'liini to help a pestilential oi l sinner through the
pearly gates with an obituary full of lies, when the said old sinner
owed the editor a subscription account that had been outlawed by
time. It's one* redeeming feature is it’s brevity.
The month, however, is as full of action as a picnic party that has
settled down on an ant hill. Embryo presidents, in their Friday
afternoon exercises, will inform their schoolmates that Lincoln, the
great orudieator, was born on the 12th, and later crossed the Dele-
ware and become the fathcr of his country, and Washington died
on the 22 after discovering the Manama Canal and freeing the slaves
The weather bureau, too, waf born the Mth of February, INTO, and
has been making and breaking promises ever since.
The fourteenth of the month will bring the same old tails of love,
when girls, though large as elephants, are called a turtle dove; for
A alentines v.d rip'*n. thf n and pairs Regain to spoon—the starting
of some big events to culminate in .Tune. The 25th will also bring
respite at least n while—from bunny hug, and other dances wild,
lor Lent begins tlm twenty-fifth to re t their weary lives, and men,
perchance, may once more meet their daughters and their wives.
Team leas hose were invented Fell. !, 1720—just 101 years before
.the invisible hose of today. The fir n pair of sea inis» hose were
about half an inch thick and were worn at protection ngnn«t. cold.
1 he modern hose are about as thick a ■ a cigaret paper, split twice,
and no one know 1 why they ,-ip> worn.
The closing of the month will bring the candidates to light—an
army of exalted men. who for us want to light; they seek to bring
solvation to the I nvly of our kind, but after they’re ejected, our ex-
istence i-lips tlie,r mind.
