Patriotic Indian Rt jacts Government
Samples and Buys One to Suit
On the Navajo rest rvation great ef
forts were made years ago to induce
the Indians to abandon their custom
of leaving the bodi . of their dead
above ground, and to adopt the white
people's s; stem o. burial. One In
dian agent’s sucee-s, was encouraging,
and arrangements were made by
which the government should supply
neat headstones. A stock of them
was laid in, and no sooner had they
arrived when a tall Navajo appeared.
He looked at the collection, but grunt
ed "No" to each one. The agent sug
gested that, if the red man would in
dicate the special style he wished, it
would be ordered for him.
"Want United States headstone,"
was the laconic response.
The agent was puzzled by this.
What the deuce could the Indian
mean by "United States headstone?"
livery effort to ascertain just what
was in his mind met with the in
variable reply: "Want United States
.. At last, tearing inat tne reu mans
disappointment might result unfavor
ably to tlie scheme for introducing up
to-date burial methods, the agent gave
some money to the Indian, bidding
him to go ami buy the kind of grave
stone he liked.
Some times later a party of hunters
fame to the agency. They had been
to the lodge of the Navajo, who had
lost his squaw, and had seen her
grave. At the head of it -vas posted a
gaudy red and white barber's pole!
This was the Navajo's Idea of a |
"Fnited States headstone.” It was j
as near as he could come to a grave |

THE MAN AT FORT Y-Fi VE

Is forty-five to be the dead line?
.Most corporations follow a ruling that
men forty-five years old and over shall
not be given permanent positions be
cause they have passed the years o!
efficiency. Now, according to the dis
missions in some of the conferences
notably the M. E. conference held al
Evansville last week, ministers who
do not enter tlie profession until they
reach or pass forty-live will come un
der the same restriction to a certain
extent, or at least be discouraged,
if these restrictions continue what is
to become of the man of forty-five
or over who has not found a place
in life or who may desire to change
his trade or profession at that period?
The theory that his period of efficien
cy is passed is pure fiction. The real
trouble is whether he will he ab'e
to work long enough to entitle him
to the same pensions on quitting that
those are entitled to who have given
their whole life to a trade or profes
sion. He may not be, but this feature
of pension and insurance schemes,
should lie so adjusted so that there
will bo no hindrance to the capable
man of forty-five getting employment
if he wants it. 'idle fact is that a
man at forty-five Is at his very best
and in all probability can give the
best service of his whole life.

which looks for brightness every
where, and finds if, too, refuses to
take . itself seriously, and devotes
itself to gathering op tin1 smiles while
leaving the tears for oth is. It may
be true that such natures really get
the best out of life and leave the
brightest impressions upon their fel
low men. but when it comes to the
consideration of the serious questions
which inevitably come up for discus
sion, they seem (o mislead others as
to their real value. We are not likely
to look for wise counsel or sympathet
ic appreciation in those wnom we
have been accustomed to regard as
possessing sunny-weather disposi
tions; we feel assured that the light,
insubstantial framework of their na
tures cannot withstand the buffeting
of the wild storms of distress which
sometimes sweep in upon us from un
expected quarters, and we instinctive
ly look for help to the sterner, deep
er natures of those whom we believe
realize ti»> sober side of life.

The Successful Novelist.
To become a successful novelist it!
is necessary to possess some very ex- j
cepticnal enclitics both o' mind and,
heait. TCven ns no^-ts learn in suffer-1
3ng wl at tliev sh -r in song so does
the novelist 1 ■: in bv i xperlen'm what
he gives to the wor'd In story. And
tliis is net to advance the ridiculous
claim that the novelist must neces
sarily plumb every depth and scale
every height of human feeling before
he can aspire to write convincingly,
but only that he musi at least have
studied life at first hand and ob
servud things for himself, and brought
an importial Judgment, aided by that
semi-divine faculty‘of intuit ion which
is horn of imagination, to bear upon
the evidence of the things he has seen
and tlie* doing of the people with
whom lie has mingled. hid win Pugh

The Hampton Court Maze.
Ninety-eight thousand persons have
paid a penny each for admission to
the famous maze at Hampton Court
palace this summer, the largest num
ber for some years. It is estimated
that, about 25 per cent, of these were
foreigners, mostly French and Ger- j
man. During August 24,000 people
passed through the turnstiles. For a
■number of years the takings at the
maze were the perquisites of one of
the palace attendants, upon "whom the
right to collect and retain them was '
conferred by the late Queen Victoria.
Since Ills denth a few days ago the
takings have gone to his majesty’s of

On Being Never Alone.
One tendency of our time is in the
direction of too little solitude. We
are gregarious beyond reason; we do
all things in companies and cotnbina
«ions—in our business, our pleasure,
our work, our recreation. Selfish and
self-absorbed though we may be, we
are communistic in our occupations—
we share everything, except our
purses. There may be a good side to
this; there is certainly a had one. Kor
the result is that individualism de
velops mainly on the side of greed and
grab: otherwise people think and feel
and toil In troops and battalions.
There Is an opposite peril in loo much
solitude; it breeds its own selfishness
and its own morbidity. Perpetual
loneliness brings madness; too much
of it, though not perpetual, leads to
eccentricities and possible absurdities.
A frequent and close contact with so
ciety is necessary for the moral wel
fare of each Individual. Very few
minds, if any, are strong enough to
beat the strain of an almost continu
ous solitude. Yet this state is, per
haps better than that of being never
