THE QUIET HOUR
Jim Jeffries Advice.
Hundreds and thousands of boys
and j oung men will listen to what a
fighting man has to say, who would
not pay any attention to what a think
ing man would say on the theme
Before his last fight in lteno on
the Fourth, Jefferies was asked by
a New York reporter what advice he
would give to young men. Jeffries
said. “‘I’d give a boy the same
advice that his mother would give
him. But the boys of today seem to
think they know more than their
parents, and when the/ find that
they don'* its too late. Every
boy that Finokes a cigarette may be
perfectly •cure that he is doing his
best to make himself of no account.
Cigarette smoking ruins a boys lungs
it poisons and hurts his brains. Ho
you think I'd have this chest on
me if I'd had a box of cigarettes in
uiy pocket when 1 was a boy. What
I t< .1 you about cigarette smoking
is true of drinking. The best tiling
a bay can do is to mind his mother.
She knows wiiat is good for him,
and the bov who thinks she doesn't
is a fool.

» asked one of the dead man’s slaves,
a shrewd and pious darky, whether
lie thought Massa had gone to heav
en. The old fellow shook his wool
ly head doubtingly, and when press
ed for an opinion, replied: ‘When
Massa want to go North he always
talk about it a long lime before he
go > nd begin to got ready. Massa
new r said nothing bout heaven, and
not tel ready to go. Massa not gone
to heaven” The old darky was right.

heavenless life spells a heavenless
A prince once gave liis jester a
stick and said to him: “If you ever
find any one who is a greater fool
than yourself, give him the stick.”
Som> years later the prince was ill,
and was visited by his jester. As the
sick man told him that he would
soon leave him, the jester said: “And
where are you going?” “To the other
world.” “Will you return in a
month's time?” “No.” “Will you
return in a year's time?” "Not even
then.’ “But when then will it be?”
“Never.” “What provision have you
made for so long a journey, and for
living in the country where you are
going?” “None at all.” “What, none
at all? In that case take my stick,
you are just leaving for ever, and
you have not even devised any means
whereby you may live happily in
the other world whence you will nev
er return! Take my stick, for I, at
any rate, have never been guilty of
such folly as that!”
There is no bigot so hopelessly
fettered as the man who is always
finding bigotry in other people. And
there is none so creed-bound as he
who is always flaunting as his creed,
“I believe all creeds are wrong.” He,
like every one else,has a belief; but
his belief leads him nowhere, while
the beliefs of those who rejoice in
their creeds lead to a definite some
where. The believer’s creeds is a
possession of value, the result of
thought and conviction that seeks to
build The creed-attacker's creed is
an obsession, such as one finds in
the disordered minds of a lunatic asy
lum; seeking to destroy others, it
destroys only itself.
The Golden Privilege of A Circum
Thirty years ago, in a little prairie
town in Kansas, there lived a little
woman who was appointed teacher of
the primary class. The woman car
ried a delicate baby on a pillow when
she first went on duty. As time
passed, being annxious to accomplish
much, she organized a mission hand
and talked to the little group about
the great, commission and taught
them to save and give. Although
the woman herself has not been out
side the prairie town more than once,
and the population of the town is
numbered by hundreds only, the fol
lowing is the result of her teaching
and effort: Five of her little class
are or have been to the foreign field.
One went to Africa with Bishop
Taylor, married, was widowed, re
turned and is now in charge of a girls
sehoo’ in the south.
One is a medical missionary in the

The Knight of The White Feathers.
Long ago there lived the good old
King Arthur. In those days the rich
people were not kind, to the poor
people. Strong men hurt weak men.
Robbers stole from all. So King
Arthur asked men who wished to
help make things better to be his
knights. These knights were to
lov< Hud, to do good and brave
deeds and to fight for poor and
Now there was one knight called
the Knight of the White Feathers, be
cause he always wore two white
leathers in bis helmet. He rode a
white horse and had a long white
beard, for he was not young. For
some time i.he Knight of the White
Feathers had nothing to do. The
people thought an old man would not
be strong enough to fight for them.
The other knights laughed at hint and
called him Old Sir White Beard.
But the Knight of the White Feath
er knew h > was strong, if he was old,
so he put on his helmet with the two
white feathers,leaped into his saddle*
and blowing ids trumpet, he called
out, “Ho! The Knight of the White
Feathers! He comes to fight for
the children! Ho! ”
No sooner had he spoken these
words than from behind a tree crept
a child. His clothes were torn, as
if by briers, his little hands were
scratched and stained with berry juice
and on his cheeks tears had made |
clean paths through the dust there.
“I’m lost!’ lie said, in a tiny voice, j
“Will you please find me, Sir |
The Knight of the White Feathers
leaned down from his horse and pick
ed up the poor little boy, setting him
in front of him, where he could hold
him and see that no harm came to
him. The little boy leaned against
the knight and his head nodded.
“Where do you live?” asked the 1
“With mother,” said the boy.
“And where does mother live?"
“In our tiouse, of course,”
“But how shall we know when we j
get to your house?” asked the
knight, smiling down into the boy’s;
“Cause—cause there is —lions —at ]
the gate;” and the boy fell fasti
asleep with one hand holding the
knight's white board.
“On, Charger!” whispered the
knight to liis horse, and away they,
went like the wind. Every now and j
#ien the knight blew his trumpet and j
called out, “Found! by the Knight of |
tiie White Feathers, the boy of the;
House of the Two Lions! IIo!”
Soon a voice answered, “Sir Knight/
stop’” It belonged to an old man,
who said, “Turn to your left when
you reach the place where four roads
cross, and you’ll come to the House
of the Twp I,ions.”
Thanks,old man, said the knight;
tossing him some money. “On Charg
er!” and away they went like the
wind .till they reached a gate hav
ing two stone lions beside it.
“Found!” called the knight, rap
ping on the gate with his sword;
“by the Knight of the White Feath
ers, the boy of the House of the
Two Lions!” From the house came
the boy’s mother hurrying, crying
with joy, the nurse who had let him
stray away, and the father who had
been hunting for his child all day.
When they turned from kissing' the
boy to thank the knight all they
saw was a cloud of dust far away.
The knight had not ridden long
when he was stopped by a woman,
who said, “Sir Knight, there is a
child in a small house two min
utes’ journey into the forest, who has
to stay indoors all day, for a robber
has stolen her shoes, and her feet
are too tender to walk without them.”i
“On Charger!” said the knight, and
into the forest they went, past the
house with the child’s sad face at
the window, till before him the knight
saw the robber rdiing with the
child's shoes hanging over his saddle.
“The Knight of the White Feath
ers!” he shouted, “to fight for the
child's stolen shoes!”
The robber was surprised that a
knight should fight for so small a
thing, but long they fought, till the
knight rode off with the child's
shoes, and soon she was running hap
pily about the forest.
And when the knight came to j
King Arlhut and told of his adven
tures no one laughed any more at
him, and King Arthur himself said.
“Thou shalt no longer be called the
Knight of the White Feathers but
the Childrens' Knight.'' —- Beginners
