(Jiris, put a brake on your enthusi
asm when it leads you Into writing
impassioned epistles to the men with
whom you imagine you are in love.
When the right tnaii comes write
him as many letters as your love and
liscrotioii suegi-st. but don't put any--.hllig
'"ill paper that you will be
ashamed to read iu later years. !
There is nothing swifter than a gen
uine, tender, girlish love letter, but
lon't take the "gilt oif the tftwr
iiread" by wasting your letters on ti
wrong man.
!o you know what he does with
those letters? Very often he carries
them alMiut in his pocket for week,
where they rub up against sordid bills
and business letters, and every time
he wants a certain letter lie takes the
whole bunch out and your pretty, lov
ing little message get sadly frayed
and soiled.
And sometimes land this Is worst of
all) 1 am sorry to say that this careless
man lets your letters lie around the
house where all who are curious may
rend them.
He iloes not tin this because be loves
your letter, but lieeiiuseyou are not the
right girl and he is not the right man.
and the letter is vriluii! accordingly.
When the right man gets a letter
from you he will riot carry It in his
"genera! correspondence"" (usket; be
will have it tucked of by itself n a
special pocket and if it les.ks worn and
soiled it Is because It has lecn taken
out and tenderly perused many times
and oft.
And so, don't you see. Hi tie girls,
that when jou scatter your letters too
freely among your men friends you are
not only wasting your precious
thoughts, but that most pres-ious if ail

The Wooden Indian.
Behold the Wisslell Indian.
Who stands outside tlie door,
And guards, with frown and hatchet.
The old tol.ii'co store.
He never beat n grocery bill,
He never told a lie,
lie nev.r took a longing look
At IfHtri.oii, fiM, er rye.

A muss of oak and pniiu;

Heboid tie wiMwIen Indian,
Who, on the oilier hnnd.
Was never known to help the nsir
That fill our glorious bind;
Who never heard the piti-ous cry
Of him who starred alone
Who never gave? n hungry dog
So nuirh as one small bone.
Behold the wooden Indian
(And cny is lniii-h like woodi,
Who never did a hit of harm,
Nor y et a bit of good.

Medicines failed and but let him
tell hi own story; "For the first fims
in rnv life of (51 years I am Impelled to
publicly testify to the value of a large
ly advertised article and I certainly
would not pern these lines except that,
what seems to me a direct act of Prov.

pressed that It is a bounden duty to
make II known.
"For 3 years I kept falling with
stomach and liver disorders until I was
reduced 70 lbs. from my normal weight

saved my life.
