' Â· Our friend, Lester Milligan, than whom we know oÂ£ no one more easy to like, or to look at, is a stair goer downer-of considerable ability. Coming out of Dr. Tice's office we saw him hurriedly descending the stairs from the seventh floor of the Foresters' justly famous building and hastily dis appearing from sight headed for the fifth at a comparatively high rate of speed for a stair descender. Whether Lester had a mad on at the elevator boy or was taking a little exercise, or both, we know not. --e -Give It Time, 'Twill Improve Â·With Age. !

When one gets to tossing one's money to the four winds, so to speak, one is bound to regret it sooner or later. Had the man mentioned in the item put the penny in his pocket, 1 he not only would have escaped injury and great mental agony, but he would have had a nice nest egg with which to start a fund for the purpose of buying a new car or a fur coat or something. Aw The Earl Ferris Nursery of Hampton', Iowa, 1937 catalog is worthy of special mention. It is of original design, being more like a weekly magazine in size, and is most elaborately illustrated in nat- tural colors. In addition to the listing of the merchandise for sale, the catalog contains many hints and instructions on planting and landscaping. It is well worth the having for any home owner.
