1J3AVES FROM MY LIFE
Copyright 1922 by F. L. Browno
I. Eurlv Das
iVas very young when first I opened
asy. eyes to the light of a June morn-are-
almost three score and ten years
, tjj young that I do not remember
'aairtldng about it.
..But my. mother told me and I write
connaenct that known facts
will prove the truth of my story.
For a year or more- my parents
were of opinion that I was destined
to become n successful daiiyman.
With chubby hands and reddy lips I
handled a mill; route with dexterity
and waxed fat thojcon.
What my futuro was really to bo
b&cnmo evident when at several dlf
fcrant.times my mother caurfit mn in
dustriously chewinjr up the' morninjr
paper tiding to digest the news.
And some little time later cuttinr
bulletins and pasting them up on the
pailor wall; it is hardly necessary to
add that hcrudvicowasverydiscourag
ing. I had learned by now that my
icgs were long cnougu to venen irom
my body to the floor and was ulso ahlf

a gum drop and pcunut shell; was al
bo becominpi expert in money matters,
I could distinguish between silver nnd
paper; I enjoyed biting on the coin but
disliked thetaate of pnper money. Be
sides this Dad bad serious objections
to my chewing up his green backs
Memory began to develop and one
of the vivid impressions was that
chicken was all neck, that being the
portion always nerved to mo with n lot
of talk stuff about how well I liked it.
I gnawed chicken neck until I de
veloped a set of troth that did me good
service for over GO years.
Speaking of chicken there was an old
lady who indiecsin the fowl for cook
ing always washed it in soap suds.
The funny part of it was that she
would not allow the use of soaps in
her laundry work.
One day I discovered an open ink
bottle on the table and dipping there
in proceeded to decorate the white
spread with artistic finger prints and
splashes. Very soon after this I dis
covered that mother did not appreci
ate my work.
Ycara later n smart printer patent
ed those splashes and they became
very fashionable card ornomeVits.
Nothing the matter with mo except
that I was a little ahead' of the times.
About now I was told that tiny boys
grew up to be big men. This impres
sed me seriously nnd I set myself into
the business 'of growing up.
Power of reason began to exert.
Seeing a cause I looked for effect.
I argued thnt two hours a day spent
in naping was a woeful waste of pre
I won my case but it took me quite
a long time to do it.
I became greatly interested in
grandmothers clock nnd spent many
hours watching it.
One day I carefully opnned the door
niul with great giro obprVvcd the long
nondulum swinging slowlv.vervslowly
to and fro.
ftor a while I reached in ami do-
'ilieiatfly stopped its swing. later ho
ng asked v hy I did tbi I renl'M "Bo-
cause it waa tired."
Years nftorwnrd I hoard this storv
Tcpoatcu "s an example of ehildhood
Dear old giandfather's clock I love
the memory of it yet.
It talked to mo in those other days
giving advice which has helped me
through many a trying hour.
You my older readers who are ac
quainted with some grandfather's
clock listiti now nnd you will hear the
words I heard. Solemnly with inter
vals of exactly one second between
the words the clock said: "Don't fret,
People lived that way in the good
old times the simple life.
Their wants were few and easily
supplied. Happiness and content
ruled. . , f i
Quito m contrast is the rush and
'uiny of today.
We want everything except the
noon and I doubt not" would include
Mint if tlieic wore any way possible

typical of the time.
In every home on mantel or table is
one of those little lound shiny ma
chines ticking rwny nl a 2:10 gait and
as fast m the words caif be spoken
they say: "Get, get, get, get." Woe
betide those who do not heed.
The times wore changing. A heavy
cloud lay just below the horizon of
history. A new party and a new
President wcic coming into power.
The word politics conveyednomean
ing to mo but I learned that the man
was big and good and great and I of
ten marched at the head, of a corps of
companions who carried drums and
banners nnd shouted lustily for Lin
coln nnd Ilnmlin.
Then enme the &ombrc days, war
clouds rolled o'er sunny southern skies.
I had a set of tin soldiers, some blue
some gray, and cannon that filed peas
Setting the blue and gray on oppo
site sides I would see how many T
could knock down with a given num
ber of shots from either. I saw men
going away in answer to the call of
They wore bright clothes with shiny
buttons nnd carried guns and swords.
T longed to bo big and go with them.
This was about the limit of my know
ledge of war.
I did not know that them were
fathers, sons, brothers and
hearts marching away never
On thq days of. big battle when our
people at homo would sit silent and

telephone service is one of the most widely used commod
ities in our business and social life. The increasing use of
this service proves its popularity, and its small cost has
been a mighty factor in the development of theelephonc.
Long distance service, to properly meet the varied demands
of the telephone patron, is now offered in several classes,
the person-to-person, the appointment, and the station-to-station
The first two classes provide connection to a specified
party, while the station-to-station service is based on a
desired connection to any given telephone number. The
latter service is offered at one-fourth less than the rate
quoted for the person-to-person call when used during the
day. and the evening service from fl:30 P M. (o midnight
may be used for one-half the pcrson'to-porson rate. The
nightstntion-to-station service available b Uvoon the hours
of midnight hnd i:?,0 A. M. is offered at one fourth the
oost of the pcrson-lo-person rate. This service providesan
exceptional opportunity f.r lung distance conv nations at
an extremely low rale.
Rates and information concerning all classes of toll
service will he gladly furnished by the Local Manager or
Lincoln Telephone & Telegraph Co.
