in my VEINS fty . • •••"••'• rill* •••'• .Grandmother, .you kjfipjv evening, don't you? Just a lit* tie while..ago, my little grandson bennis finnan said this and now I wish I knew as much as he believes 1 'do. I Was pulling • weeds and he carried them away in his coaster Wagon. As we worked as is usual we discussed' many many topics and as f answered his questions and we talked together, he expressed the belief that I knew everything, It is so satisfying to know that I measure up in his child's opinion and I trust that, we can always keep this Wonderful friendship. ', JULYH 1W4 ALOONA (ft**) The weather being What it is, is the first topic of versation among folks these days. I wa* so warm and mis'tV able *nd imtntient atMhe expression, "Hot, isn't It? So before they could say the words, I almost saw them forming on their lips, I said, "Delightful weather, sin't it? Aren't you enje/ing it?" I was to rftaan and hot that I trok a perverse pleasure at the suprised expression upon their facts. But wit laughed, and laughing together cleared the air. So there how, you know I am a meanie. We are expecting our daughter Alice Mary and her family from Dallas, Texas. It is so nic<5 they can come back occasionally to visit the house in which .they were born -arid raised and I look forward to my rooms being filled with laughter. School chums are already inquiring about her arrival so we look forward to many delightful times. A .man went into a grocery store to buy a bottle of catsup. The'shelves of the entire store were solidly lined with , bags of salt — hundreds and hundreds of them. To get the catsup the proprietor had to go down cellar. The, customer went with him, and there to his surprise saw more salt stacked on all 'sides. "Say," commented the customer, "you certainly must sell a lot of salt." "Nah," said the,store owner, "I can't sell no salt at all. But the feller who sells me salt. Can he sell salt!" Fortune telling was an old trade in the 'day of Mbses, yet it still flourishes in these supposedly civilized and enlightened days. It is claimed that more than one hundred, million dollars is paid out each year in America by superstitious people to. palmists, astrologers and other sorts of fortune tellers. If there is any fortune in fortune telling you may be sure that. the fortune tellers get it. The hobby of collecting is an old one and ranges from expensive paintings by old masters, rare china; tapestries, precious gems or stamps to such trivial things as matchbook covers, rubber bands or cigar wrappers. The finest collection hobby I ever heard about was that of a man who made a hobby of collecting friends. It is.a collection which takes up .little room, for these are kept in his mind and heart. He finds the friends for his collection everywhere. It may-be the man who serves him or the man he serves. It may be a casual acquaintance, a policeman on the corner or a person of high position. They are all alike to him — a new addition to his collection, each with its own value. His collection is something which he cannot sell or display to guests in his home. Yet for downright satisfaction, I am sure this man can be happier over his hobby than any other accumulation of material objects. The collecting of friends, like collecting of all types, is not a simple task. An effort must be made to look for and procure that which one seeks. One must have patience, and be willing to pay the price which, fortunately, is not high. It is within the reach of every man who wants it. , : • Friendship can, be bought with kindness, consideration, thoughtfulness and tolerance. .Those who would make a hobby of collecting friends must be prepared to pay these . prices. A •» . There is an old saying to the effec.Tiiat practice makes perfect. This is especially true with religion. A person must practice religion to become perfect at it. Those who talk about religion and forget to practice it usually look upon church membership as an elevator into heaven. They regard religion as some sort of fire escape. Maybe I am wrong but I believe the average person goes through life thinking he is a pretty religious individual. This Mr. average person reminds me of the story I read of an old Negro who got up one night during a revival meeting and said: "Brothers and Sisters, you know me and you know that I haven't always been what I should have been. I admit, and then he went on to enumerate his many misdeeds, then said, "I've done just about everything I shouldn't do but there is one thing I want to say for myself. No matter what I have done or how I have lived I have never lost my religion. A lot of people never lose their religion regardless of what they do or fail to do. They seem to have no conception of what true religion means. Religion cannot be put on and off like a coat according to the changes in the weather. : '.v *'< *0SB Fehtoh-Bancroft wedding Bancroft — Maxine Ruth Meyer and James Francis Antoine were married at St. John's Catholic 'church here July 9 with Father Maurice Krause performing the double-ring ceremony.
