Correspondent in City Visited by Zep

and Touched Wood.
I was billeted at tho time of the first
Zeppelin raid In a little, smelly houso
of -three floors and six apartments.
Tho hoaso was packed with tho orig
inal tenants, Jew and Greek, together
with such lodgers as myself. In our
fiat of four rooms and a kitchen were
tho landlord and his lady, four sous
and two daughters. The sons slept
on tho sitting-room floor, and If you
canio homo In the dark you were like
ly to tread ou them. Two French ofQ
cors shared the best bedrooms, while
I slept alone , in tho second best.
"Bang-bang-bang" went the bombs from
the Zeppolln ; tho French officers cried
"En bas I" and tho boys banged at my
door yelling "Erabrosl" which Is
Greek for "Forwards I" As It didn't
seem to matter much where ono went,
tho whole thing, falling dugouts, be
ing purely a question of luck, I stayed
In bed and touched wood. The crashes
of-tho big bombs wcro terrifying. Tho
house shook with each explosion; but
us all things good or bad must como
to an end, so too, after a while, ended
this business. A wonderful orange
colored blazo lit up tho world outside,
and so Z got out of bed and watched
It, deciding at last to dress and seo

Youth tho Loser.
J. F. Morgan, the famous financier,
was talking at a dinner In New York
about a yoang banker who had failed.
"It was his youth that made him
fall," bo sold. "Youth Is always falling
falling In business, falling In love.
"Itemy do Gburmont tells us truly
that In tho game of life youth has all
tho trumps all of them but plays
recklessly, and invariably loses."

DO IT NOW, GOOD WATCHWORD
Habit of Procrastination Has Never
Yet Failed to Bring Train of
Evils In Its Wake.
"Sometime" is a useful word that is
often overworked, remarks tho Mil
waukee Journal. Ono says, "Sometime
I will do it," but tho time never comes.
Sometime is no time when a kind deed
Is to be done. Sometlmo is no time
when a definite task is to bo done.
A thing put off beyond Its rightful
tlmo encroaches on time allotted by
right to other duties. Ono may think
ho is gaining time by postponing tho
duty of tho hour. In fact, ho Is wast
ing time. "Tomorrow" and ever "to
morrow" has been tho ruin of many.
Do now tho tiling that should be done
now. Ilavo you had a quarrel, and are
you ready for reconciliation? Do not
postpono it. Tho other person may got
hardened In his views and becomo un
willing to be reconciled. Ho may dio
and leavo to you a lasting regret that
you had not mado friends. Would, you
help someono? Do not wait till help
is past being help. Put off till "to
morrow" mending tho fence, and your
neighbor's cattlo will havo found tho
weak place and mado havoc with your
grain. Put off paying your insurance,
and perhaps u fire will destroy all
you havo. Debts do not grow less by
postponing payment. "Do it now" 1b a
good watchword. Say tho kind word,
