' TERRIBLE THING
Some of the Righteous in Revolt Against Perkins.
It is recorded that a ub reporter one
time was aeked to rewrite a sensational
story about an explosion In a mine which
resulted In the lor of many lives. lie
labored hard over hi task and finally
when the city editor called for tho story
the cub hsd evolved the following:
"The most terrible thing that can hap.
Pen to one In thl life Is a mine dis
aster." As to ,what happened to the cub re
porter nothing la written, but the story
lead to other thoughts. It mlrht be said
thnt "the most terrible thing that can
happen to one In this life-' Is to have n
white elephant on one's hands. And this
leads to consideration of what Che e.
presslon "having a while elephant" means
In thl connection. Getting down to facts,
the elephant Is a "large mammal having
a flexible proboscis with tho nostrils nt

does not help much. We muct go further.

This sound reasonable enough, tor wp

It Is suggested that If a wealthy man

Presumably this patient If he had not

'Tis a Joyous road to Christmas land
Which wo travel In December;
Full of hustling feet
And laughter sweet
And precious things to remember.
'Tts a Jolly old road to Chrlatma land,
With many footsteps ringing;
Full of many plans
Full of busy hands
And tho air all full of singing.
,'Tls n happy road to Christmas land,
And with burdens on you piling;
Just travel along,
With tho busy throng.
And be suro you keep a-smlltng.

"Where millions of feet aro speeding;
Children's eyes ashlne,
With light divine,
Aro stars to tho Christ-ohild leading.
