Sir Andrew Clark, the famous phy
sician, had a patient who was afflicted
with a complaint that Sir Andrew in
formed him would only need a little
time to put right.
The information did not cheer him
at all. He was one of those joyous
individuals who look back at all the
afflictions of the past and forward to
all the' possible afflictions of the fu
ture. He had, he declared, been be
ing "put right'' ever since he could
remember and then he understood
that such an illness as he had pre
disposed one for a perfect host of
other inflictions. If Sir Andrew
Clark "pullled him through" on this
occasion, was it likely he would suc
ceed on the other future ones?
The great physician at last got an
I can cure you of what is the mat
ter with you," he said, "but ifyou are
not content with one complaint at a
time, but are determined to compH
cate it with a dozen you haven't got.
no skill will save you. Think it over
and let me knew tomorrow when I
call what you have- made up your
mind to. Good day, sir."
The natieut. having the state of af
fairs put to him as plainly as that, re
solved to be content with one com
plaint at a time and leave the others
till they actually assailed him. There
is a terrible dissipation of energy in
meeting imaginary troubles half way.
Persons of a pessimistic disposition
are ever popping off on such excur
sions and the meeting docs not come
off after all. They feel sure then that
trouble must have decided on com
ing by the other road. They have
missed it. It's nowhere about. They
must have mistaken the day. Trouble
will come tomorrow.
"Concentration on the present wor
ry is half the battle half the victory,"
declared Roosevelt. "You need all
your forces directed to one end. Don't
let them be scattered. Mass your
energy and you will win.
It is excellent advice, but we poor
human creatures are apt to shirk that
concentration. We don't look wor
ries in the face because we fear the
face will be toOi ugly for us. We can
imagine that face. It is the most hor
rible face in the world. We shudder
as we think of it. If we really looked
on it we would find it nothing so for-
A WHITE voile waist, frilled with white organdy ruffles, edged
with rote, blue or black, is pretty and serviceable, too. In
gabardine or in pique, the white skirt, with real pockets and at
tached belt, may be had for a very moderate turn.
NOVELTY is combined with practicality, and a reatonabte price,
too, in this coat of autosoie transparent oil silk. It is juat
right for sailing or motoring, or to slip on when it showers. In
purple, rote, champagne, porcelain blue, dark green or Nile green.

A girl at young as you ought to hive
an attitude of friendship rather than
love toward a boy who interests-you.
You can well afford to wait a number
of years before marrying, and if your
interest in this young boy lasts it will
be a fine thing on which to base mar
riage some day in the future. Don't
be so mercenary as to put him out of
your life just because he has not a
great deal of money.

midable as it presents itself to our
Mark Twain knew a man who lived
by laying ghosts or, perhapt, I
should say, presumed ghosts. He
took to the ghost-laying line "by
persuasion of his wife,' declared
The fact was, not' being particular
ly happy with that lady he hit upon
the idea when a house was for sale,
tenanted according to popular repute
by a frightful ghost to buy it as a
bargain. His wife would never oc
cupy the house, and he was prepared,
in pursuit of peace and happiness, to
take the house with the ghost to liv
ing anywhere else with his wife.
, His boldness in facing this spectre
got him a reputation. Then the atory
spread of how he had actually met
the ghost and the apparition had been
utterly worsted in the encounter. So
people sought him to come and lay
ghosts on their premises, and he did
quite a profitable business. Having
made a fortune he retired and, being
no longer dependent upon ghosts for
a living, he now and again spoke verjj
contemptuously of "the whole breed '
in confidence to Mark Twain.
In a time of emergency one needs
"temporary expedients" what will
suffice for the occasion. "It's only
for a time." I find a good number of
people who want to make a perma
nent job of dealing with a difficulty
that will necessarily, ill time, remove
itself. They are like a man with whom
Archibald Korbes once found him
self in a boat in the middle of an Irish
lake. The boat was an old dilapi
dated craft and suddenly developed a
startling hole in the bottom, through
which the water poured in such fash
ion as extinguished all hope of their
ever reaching the bank unless "some
thing was done."
Forbes' companion thereupon pro
ceeded to explain all that was needed
to make the boat perfect. If he only
had some proper wood there, a ham
mer, nails and everything would be
right. But the boat was sinking.
Forbes took off his coat and stuffed
it into the hole. It was all that was
needed to save them. They had time
to reach the bank.
In the temporary trouble one wants
to "see oneself through it." It is
probably as much as one can do. Ur
gency forbids one striving to combat
it in the most perfect and permanent
fashion posible. It is hard, perhaps,
to reconcile oneself to a makeshift.
But it may be all that is possible at

This method of baking Ash will be
found quite easy, rendering the fish
very palatable. ,
Cleanse and wash the fish in cold
water, then drain it and dry thorough
ly with clean cloth; put in the stuf
fing, sew up the opening with a truss
ing needle and lard the tides of the
Bin with lardons-of fat salt pork;
trim these evenly -with a pair of scis
sors. Larding is easily done and
much improves the flavor of fish or

can be bought for 5 centl at any

stitches should, be taken at regular

shape of the letter "S" by running a
cord through the tail and middle of
the body tie the cord firmly. It is
better to have the fish . in an upright
position in order to cook evenly.
Dredge the fish with salt and pepper
and lay it on slices of larding pork
in a large, flat baking pan; baste fre
quently with the gravy that flows
from the fish. Garnish with cut lem
