Poor Who Cannot Afford Milk It has been stated by physicians that the practice of tea drinking among the children of the poor is very prevalent says the Detroit NewsTribune Even little ones less than two years old are given tea to drink three times a day The reason for this is that the parents are not able to buy milk for the children and thinking that they must have something to drink besides water Ig norantly give them tea never realizing the disastrous results that may follow to the growing child in the way of nervousness and other troubles Physicians who work among the poor are discour aging this practice as far as possible and advising water as a beverage eiIher cold or hot with a little milk added making that drink known in many families as cambric tea Women too who know better than to give tea to babes might do much good by instructing those who do not know better not in an Intrusive way but by perhaps saying My doc tor says it is harmful to give children tea so I have stopped it altogether And the ignorant women with the doc tors opinion placed before them will more often than not listen and profit b- It for they have much confidence in a physician FISHERS WHO CANT

one solitary settler In the spring of the year when the ice was just breaking up the mans two lads were out on the bay ice after seals when all of a sudden It gave way and the lads fell through The father seeing it from the shore did not hesitate but seizing a fishing line hastily fastened one end round his body and giving the other end to his daugh ter to hold he ran out to the hole through which they had fallen He jumped into the water actually went down and fetched up the bodies too late alas to restore life to them after that cold water Thor Almost Do Youd make a big hit if you could

great popularity in London mainly through the famous sextette was imported she applied for and obtained a position in the front row The company was organized to tour the country and was to extend to

build bridges across the chasms witha determination that lead others to have confidence in you and you will reach your goal Columbus Critic N extract from The Clinton Gazette which showed another hand than its editor an another very complimentary of Roosevelt drew our attention away from the other brilliant editorials which we persue with so much pleasure each week in the Gazette and it was with a feeling akin to sadness that we folded reverently its hitherto so valued sheets and tenderly awe would draw a burial role over a departed friend laid it away for in it we buried the great respect and esteem wo have had since childhood for a well known editor The halo which encircles the head of our contemporary was one of the strongest influence that drew us toward the editorial1 chair with the ambitious hope that some day we would reach I the fame of Ed Walker of Clinton and then to retire to a large colonial fronted dwelling with a large lawn in front over which with the use of a heavy cane we would hobble to look after the flowers in front and the orchards in the rear well content with our worldly work complet But now to see the influence of very small shallow natures over this in our mind once great man is a spectacle from which we turn away with compassion an awarfromItOliL OK HOXOIt MISS DIESTLEBSINKS MUSIC CLASS Adams Iva- Bartlett Lots- Beckman Pauline Brown iiariuo
