( Prices They Did Year Ago
Vegetables are'tbe cehapest edibles
on the market today, according to Al
King, manager of Hayden Bros.' gro

Louisiana are just what they were

thing in the eating line on which the
price has not been raised," 'he said.
'Old onions are another commodity
which is cheap; in fact, they are sell
ing at 1 cent a pound, whereas at this
time last year they were quoted at
1254 cents a pound."
Strawberries are soaring in price,
temporarily, and are selling at 25 cents

5 for a crate of pints and $9 for a
:rate of quarts.

variety, which were selling a week ago
for 15 and 20 cents, have taken a drop
to 5 and 7VS cents.
New potatoes have already reached
the market and are selling for 10 cents
a pound. Home crown rhubarb is
plentiful and cheap, selling lor four
bunches for a nickel, and this has
forced down the price of the Laluor

About once in every two or three
months I find myself writing a little

that if you find out what you want

No one can help you much as you
go through life. Some one can give
you a hearing, a chance to prove
yourself, a start. But, given this, if
you have neither the ability nor the
energy to go on, the chance you
had to prove yourself only proves
you a failure.
Indecision, wavering between
choices, doubt of what really is to

which must inevitably defeat you.

Success is the one thing which
never meets anyone halfway. After
you have- gone 100 per cent of the
distance that originally lay between
you and your desire (if it be a de
sire for great achievement) you will
suddenly find that it has receded
that it lies infinitely further in the
distance, than you had supposed. If
you have the grit and courage to
keep on going to follow the little
beacon that twinkles afar, eventually
you must achieve.
Do you remember the fable of
Antaeus, with which Hercules strove
in vain, because each time he beat
Antaeus to the earth, the fallen one
rose again newly strengthened. So
at last Hercules seized him in bis
arms and held tiim high in the air.
" Then at last, the strength went out
of , Antaeus, and Hercules defeated
him. The meaning of the fable was
of course, that earth was the mother
of the giant, that from it he gained
new life and power as long as he
might be close to it. 1
" Modern Application.
I think we can make a little mod
ern 6 application of the old story.
Each of us is very much like the
giant. Earth is our mother, and if,
when we are defeated, we lie close
to it and rest for a time, 'then we
will get up with renewed vigor. The

Rest Stations for
American Boys Are
Opened in France
The Red Cross director of military
affairs in France reports that the
first rest station to open on the
American lines of communication is
ready and work has already started.
The second will be open soon, and
others are in process of construction.
The stations are arranged to im
prove traveling conditions for the
American soldiers to supply him be
tween trains and during long waits
with a comfortable place in which to
rest, write letters. "Such institutions
have been found by the British and
French armies to be not only the
soldiers' due but powerful means in
sustaining their morale. The men
have enough discomforts in any case,
and to eliminate them whenever pos
sible is essentially Red Cross work.
"We have been operating an Ameri
can canteen for the benefit of a United
States army air service camp and are
now serving 1,280 men per day. It
has been a source of great pleasure
to us that this canteen has met with
so much success. As a matter of fact,
its success has been so much greatei
than could have been prophesied that
this rest station is in process of be
ing very much enlarged.
"Our dire:tress at this point estab
lished on her own initiative an officers'
mess in the canteen, with the re
sult that she has been asked by the
camp authorities to take over the en
tire charge of the mess for all the
officers of the camp. We are building
barracks for the purpose and for an
officers' lounge, which, with the
present barracks for the enlisted
men and the canteen personnel, will
inclose a court. We have established
here a diet kitchen, where special
dishes are rooked under the doctors
orders for sick men. Begun on a
small scale, 'the diet kitchen has
grown steadily. The doctors are en
thusiastic about this work, it has
been found incfst useful and is a good
ample of the fact that when Red
Cross activities are in the hands of
constructive workers they are bound :
to increase in usefulness.

for a year to learn to love her. Now her
parent are beginning to wonder about the
results of such precedure, and off times have
hinted at what my Intentions are. Con I
tell them the truth? Or ought a man marry
out of sympathy? I could do most anything
to prevent the pains and heartache whloh
will be sure to follow our parting. If I
marry her, and by some trick of fate I
should fall In love with someone else,
what then? Can you help me? B. M.
