Human ingenuity has never constructed machine of greater perfection than the shears. Recurring to the very High efficiency of shears although Hie use of the word a a pair is Correct when one rein mar i that each Blade is an old English a a seen a or Cutter the inventor must have been a practical Mechanic. He was probably one of the earliest of inventors because among the pictures on the Walls of the rues tuba or Tomb of to. At ancient Memphis shears Are pictured for clipping Wool from sheep and goats. The deceased to must have been a person of much importance in the fifth dynasty 2,100 ii. Although he modestly described himself As a keeper of the therefore shears were in familiar use i do years ago and their Genera form has not been improved upon. This is due to the True engineering principle behind the shears. The invention would appear to have sprung fell fledged into the world like Minerva from the brain of Jupiter. Imagination is required to picture the admiration with which the first user of a pair of shears contemplated Tho perfection of tin service rendered. Although he probably did not recognize the fact the efficiency of the shears is i 0-10 per cent perfection. Ever it should be India is not a Little presence. Here i tale of their doings a Small Hawk had seized a Little Bird and perched on a leafless Branc h to devour his prey. The spectacle Drew two crows to the spot. They hopped and mapped from Branch to Branch noisily discussing the strategy of their intended raid. Then one of them quietly slipped away through the surrounding foliage at the. Same time his mate flew in front of tile perched Hawk and hovering steadily within a foot of ills beak maintained a bustling menace of snatching the Titbit. That effectively compelled the attention of the Hawk. His prey grasped firmly beneath his find lie angrily hissed and lunged at the hovering nuisance. So Lively was the skirmish that the human onlooker forgot the existence of the second Crow. Rut now that wily Bird reappeared some distance in Tho rear of his destined victim. Wit ii Stealthy sailings and Short noiseless flights he Drew near. Then he made a Swift dash seized the Hawks Long barred Tail by the tip. Hung on with All his weight and toppled the luckless Hawk in a Complete Back somersault from the Branch. The released Titbit was instantly seized by the first Crow and the Clever pair bore off their Booty with much triumphant cawing. 4444<4<4444444444<444444444444 444444444 44 4 43 now the time Here the place worthy winsome fearful Wash waists with the Advent of the summer season comes the insistent de hand for the sensible and serviceable and sightly Wash waists.

Tri the popular mind the apartment belongs to the great family of Homes and can easily he made Ritto a True Home by the addition of a rubber Plant and an enlarged photograph of the colosseum. Tills is As much of a fallacy As to think that a bluejay can be made into a Bluebird by giving Blin a Bluebird House to nest in. The bluejay belongs to the Crow family and while his plumage May please the aesthetic senses for a time ills raucous screams and his bullying Pugna City will inevitably offend every one. The Wise Man in acquiring an apartment views it is a Branch of the wooden Nutmeg family and determines to pass it on to someone else with All possible . Is duty of All to be fit National efficiency demands that All citizens keep themselves in Good physical condition. There no thousands perhaps millions of individuals who might be willing to die for their country if the Accident of timing of military age and fortunes of War should occasion such a sacrifice who apparently Are not willing to Reform their personal habits and go into training to improve themselves personally Lur the Sake of adding to our combined National efficiency. And yet i believe that of any one of these men is once brought to see this question i its right Light he will not hesitate to do any thing and everything to improve himself. It is a personal duty and it is a National duty. Why should Only the soldiers go into training Success in modern warfare is said to lie bused 70 per cent or More upon Industrial and business efficiency. Then Why should not the workers find business men go into training to make themselves As vigorous fit and efficient a it our soldiers the Wear and tear of Bushless administrations will sometimes be found just As trying As the Rigours of military life. Vast numbers of business men die prematurely in Middle age just when their business or professional Success most requires their continued Energy and direction. One should be fit for any emergency. The requirements of War and business Are after All not be different As one might suppose. In either Case it is primarily a matter of building vitality organic strength nerve strength mid that Quality of a a resistance needed to endure a Strain of any kind that May be placed upon one. President Wilson can to find any fault with the european photographers. Thep never snap him when he Isnit looking too per cent Wilson.

It May he explained that the Man who wore the four Pound watch was a famous giant. He stood 7 feet 4 inches and weighed 380 pounds. Ile was born in Eastern Kentucky and served As a Soldier in the command of Gen. John Morgan tli6 Confederate cavalry Leader. He later toured the world with a circus with his first wife Annie Swan who was 8 feet tall.

Ltd he president of the United i states is a Good and Wise Man a who la elec Ted by the people to give tone to politics in Washington he is popularly supposed to run the country too but he does no to. He merely looks Over the train sheets. The president serves four years. Some of the most durable Jive served eight years. He gets $75,000 a year and lives in the White House a Large mansion completely surrounded by newspaper reporters. He does no to get his salary for living in the White House but it is said to be Worth the Money. The president usually rises to his High office from obscurity and goes Back there promptly As soon As his term is Over. Only native born americans can be president. This discourages immigrants so that they rarely go into politics. They go into business instead and become aldermen. It is the duty of the president to veto All Bills passed by the opposition to see that the Cabinet chairs Are freshly filled each morning and to eat whatever is set before him no matter How badly the banquet committee May have fallen Down he must fit a Pullman car berth neatly must enjoy seeing his features warped All out of shape by cartoonists and must give reporters Aud writers any desired details about his Way of shaving or his Brand of socks or the Way in which to ties his shoes. The president is Public property and is Pever allowed to forget the fact. The Public is very hard on presidents too just As it is on the rest of its property. Very few presidents live very Long after their escape. The president works very hard and is worked even More heart Lessly. In former Days executives were very poor House cleaners but nowadays the president who did no to clean up at least a department of government a week would be accused of incredible carelessness. The chief exercises of the White House a or Rye mansion surrounded by rep Ort cts presidents Are shaking hands with office seekers. They Are of various denominations. Some Are episcopalians some presbyterians and one or two have been thirty cent pieces. Candidates for the presidency Are chosen by influential politicians in a National yell Marathon held every four years. The candidate getting the longest yell is nominated. It is customary to elect Republican presidents. The presidents have All been Noble honest men. They Are even grander and nobler after death for then even the opposition admits it. If a president works hard and makes Good he gets into the Hall of Fame and has 100,000 namesakes thus far however no namesake has Ever become president. A �11 of Quot a Quot i cd. I. So h in r.
