The Niagara suspension bridge was opened on March 8, 18S5. U S. Civil Service Commission was organized on March 8, 1883 The last sea light of the Revolution ended on March 10, 1783. And Ihe Girl Scouts are chilking up their 44th anniversary on March 12 Your horn looter is buired with you when you die. Remember that when you're blowing: off. Nobody believes you in the first place. It only tends to make people think less and less of your true attributes and this comes from the pencil of yours truly. "Darling," is the popular form of address to a ,lot of folks who can't remember your name. injustice is relatively easy to bear; what really stings is justice. Somebody, not I, said we cannot live without lawyers—and certainly we can't die without them. Woodpeckers and lawyers have bills. So—it's better to go to him while you're living and cheaper too, Won't I hear from this??? The song writers are about to pick the teen-age gals to pieces. It's funny what a rut they get-into but just let somebody write a song about anything, then it's followed up with another song along the same lines. They've written . about the teenagers prayer, which to me, is sacrilegious, their dirty saddle oxfords, their dungarees, their sweaters, their pony-tails, and now tneir red petticoats. I'd like to offer a sqng title they haven't touched on yet. May I be the first to suggest, "The Starched Drawers Rock and Boll." That's the meaning, true meaning, of rocking and rolling. Did you ever wear a pair? Sure looks good to see daffodils and crocus in bloom. The first breath of spring: makes me feel like plowing up the earth. It's just too bad in youth we run into difficulties, in old age difficulties run into us. Quess when we get older nature steps in and reorganizes us for the benfit of the doctors and dentists and they don't sell a thing that looks like new back-hinges. to behold ts a rainbow. Ood, in making his covenant with Noah said: "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth and it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the eanh, that the. bow shall be seen in the cloud." A nice thing to remember. If you want to be sure your address won't smudge in damp weather, put a strip of transparent tape over it. In case the grocer is wondering why he sells out of cottage cheese i every day, it's because of the Mini?, diet which appeared in the March issue of Coronet. If you like cottage cheese, and pray who doesn't, eat eight ounces Ihree times a day *ith fruit and brother you can lose five pounds in two days, it says here in small print. I guess if I didn't tell things on myself I wouldn't have anything to fill up space. The other night Mr. and Mrs. Laney invited me to dinner. (I usually say supper out for this occasion I weakened.) His nephew, a lawyer from Camden (and also the ex-mayor) and a friend of his, who is a representative for International Paper Mills in Camden were the honored guests. They needed another one to make the plates come out even and, as I'm always available, I was invited to be that one. David Laney's house is running over with the most silver anybody could ever imagine. Has a perfect mania for buying all the English silver on the market. Well here I sat between the two big shots from Camden and the maid comes along with this silver contraption on legs that looked like a percolator.

Senath. A wonderful discovery-psychona- lysis, makes quite simple people feel they have some sort of com- piex. Many a burning issue produces more heat than light. The problem of the middle class fe trying to save while spending a* much as the lousy rich. Almost every person you meet feels himself superior to you in some way., and a sure way to his heart, so Dale Carnegie once, said, is to let him realize that you recognize his importance. A professor is one who talks in someone else's sleep. They say the reason why so many women attend prizefight's nowadays is that they want to see some man get what's coming to him. When you hear a man say that poverty is a great thing for the character, the chances are that you're tuned in on a millionaire or someone who has just won the $64,000 question. Never put off until tomorrow what should have been done, early iu the seventies. Mrs. E. D.
