The Silent Gossip
It isn't always what you say that hurts
your fellow man;
There aro other ways of giving him
tho "hooks."
And knockers long since learned to try
a more effective plan
They simply do it by their knowing
No spokon word why waste tho
breath? Just give a little wink,
Or elevate your eyebrows half an
Just toss your head a trifle, smile a
bit and slyly blink,
And you've done .the dirty business
that's a cinch.
Thoro's Brown, your nearest neighbor,
he's distasteful unto vou
But you haven't nerve enough to
speak it out.
So whene'er you hear him mentioned
as a follow good and true.
You only wink your eye, expressing
You grin a knowing kind of grin, your
eyes aro narrow slits,
But never say a word from that
you flinch.
But your actions tell your story, ''and
his name is smashed tctfits,
And you've done the dirty business
that's a cjnoh.'
You envy Mrs. Jones a bit, and know
no reason why;
But never stop to gLve her half a
You merely hate the woman though
you smile on passing by
And curl your lips when taking back
- ward glance.
You hoar her kindly mentioned and
you toss your head and smile,
But wouldn't dare a word In-tightest
But your nodding tells your feelings,
ana in just a little while
You have done the dirty business
that's a cinch.
It isn't always what you say you
needn't say a word
To blast a woman's name beyond re
pair. Perhaps you never spoke her name
that anvbodv heard.
Yet smooched a reputation that was
And all the while you do It you are
pufllng up with pride
That you wouldn't gossip oven in 'a
pinch; " t
But your nod or wink or smiling In a
knowing way aside
And you've done the dirty business
that's a cinch.

That you spend a lot of time wish

do the little things that amount to a

"Do you not believe that senators
should be elected by the people?" we
asked of Senator Graball.
"I have no, objections," replied the
senator after a judicial pause. "How
ever, I see nothing objectionable to
the present system of selecting the
proper man for the people to elect."

It's Too Often the Case
That you spend too much time criti
cizing and too little time helping.
That your boasted "plainness of
speech" is- merely boorishness.
That you content yourself with giv
ing advice instead of lending a helping
That you are planning such big
things for tomorrow that you forget to
attend to today's duties.
That you grumble at the wrongs
that abound on all sides and fail to
make any effort at righting them.
That you attend to the business of
others without warrant and neglect
your own business without excuse?
That you waste time envying thV
mw wu mm u, iortune and fail to
malwuse of what lies at your hand,
that you yearn for reforms" witlibu?

The fact that there Is no law against

,The way to make tomorrow better
than yesterday is to work today.
It isn't the money that counts; It Is
the intent and purpose of the giver.
The men who talk the loudest about
politics being rdirty are the men. who
are too, lazy to help clean things.
A man may burn so much "midnight

trouble usually finds it just about to
enter his own door.
When a man begins to imagine that
he "doesn't look his age'' It Is a sign
that he is grovving old.

own is a mighty poor man to engage
