Spring, with all it’s Joy of living,
Winter’s moro6e days are gone;

After each spring comes a fall.
Every bud that blooms in spring
Later fades, to bloom no more;
And returns to build the soil,
When its living work is o’er.
Like the buds, our days our num

From the Kansas City Star.
The outcome of the Missouri
/iver tonnage survey affords ample
confirmation of all the claims that
have been made for waterway bene
fits. It is at once a challenge to re
newed alertness in preparing for
river navigation. The survey was
made in a thorough, businesslike
manner. It was in the responsible
hands of representatives of the de
partment of commerce. The show
ing is impressive and it can be ac
cepted as a reliable indication of
the traffic that will be available,
once barge service is established.
The tonnage figures fully justify
a determined effort for a substan
tially larger sum for barge lines
equipment than the $3,000,000 sug
gested. Experience on the Missouri
river shows that it is unwise to
attempt barge service without fa
cilities reasonably acequate for the
River navigation has passed the
experimental stage. It is now a gen
uine business enterprise. Shippers
have confidence in it and are eager
to obtain its benefits. The Missouri
undertaking ought to be launched
with a full recognition of these
facts. That constitutes another call
In the light of the business show
ing made, the Missouri Valley ter
ritory will look to congress for a
barge appropriation that will come
somewhere near taking care of the

Prom the Chicago News.
A few years ago a Chicago citizen
Jt Italian birth went with his wife
to Italy for a visit. They were
much distressed by the poverty of
the masses of the people of their
native land. Contrasting the hard
conditions there with the plenty to
which thev had grown accustomed
in their adopted country, they real
ized keenly the blessings that had
some to them on American soil.
This realization they expressed fer
vently to each other. Landing in
New York on their return, the wife
fell a few steps behind her husband
as they left the pier. Turning, he
saw that she had dropped to the
ground and was kissing it. He said
ss he lifted his wife tp her feet:
“I. too, feel like doing Ihat.”
The wife is now a widow. The
husband waa borne to his grave thr

Poverty is a great evil in any
state of life; but poverty is never
felt so severely as by those who
have, to use a common phrase,
“seen better days.” The poverty
of the poor Is misery, but It is
endurable misery; it can bear
the sight of men. The poverty of
the formerly affluent is unendur
able; it avoids the light of the
day, and shuns the sympathy of
those who would relieve it; it
preys upon the heart, and cor
rodes the mind; it screws up
every nerve to such an extrem
ity of tension, that one cool look
—the averted eye even ol a casual
acquaintance know In prosperity
—snaps the chord i once, and

Carnegie's Tip to Lauder.
Sir Harry Lauder in the Saturday
Andrew Carnegie one night came
to my dressing room at New York.
He was astonished and delighted to
meet in me a man smaller than
himself, and said so w’ith great glee.
1 denied that I u?as shorter in
stature than he and we decided to
settle the argument by measuring
heights against the dressing room
door. Before Andrew took up his
position for Tom Valla nee to take
his he'ght he said that if he beat
me he would give me a good top on
the Stock Exchange.
Overhearing this, I think Tom de
cided there and then that the steel
magnate would win. In my case Tom
gave the verdict in favor of Mr.
Carnegie by a tenth of an inch.
“Buy United States Steel com
mon,” whispered the millionaire on
Next day I bought a thousand at
$32 and forgot all about the trans
action for several weeks; in fact I
was back at London before United
States Steel Common was brought
to my memory by hearing some fel
lows speak about it.
"What is it standing at, today?”
I asked excitedly. Round about 42. I
was told. I couldn't get to the near
est telephone quick enough to or
der my broker to sell tny lot.
Almost without a halt this United
States Steel common went to some
thing like $90, and every day for
months after I sold out I didn't

Q. Why is New York called
Gotham? L. S.
A The term Gotham is Replied
to New York satirically. The allusion
is to a parish by this name in Eng
land noted for the simplicity of its
inhabitants, which has passed into
a proverb. In the lflth century a
collection of stoi tea said to be by
Dr. Andrew Borde was made about
them including the hymn about the
Throe Wise Men of Gotham. The
term was first u»ed by Washington
Irving in Salmagundi In 1807.
