The Only Soldier whom she could think of who old rat be pleased to hear fro i her was the Little Pratt boy at Lofie who had once been in her sunday school class. Of course he was not a Little boy any longer he must be Twenty one at least. But he would remember her she Felt sure and doubtless he would like to receive a card from tha big City. So she went in and chose the very prettiest card of All borrowed a pen from the stationer and and portions than she Nshon coated with it tie Curtis Pratt Why How you have exclaimed Justine. I did t and then with widening eyes she saw that this was not her sunday school Pupil it All. He never looked like that with such a straight nose and such very Brown eyes. He had been a blonde. Why Aren t Curtis she accused him breathlessly. It was the Soldier s turn to look sur prised. Yen i am. Begging your Pardon. I m very much indeed of urls Pratt. I remember you even if you Don t recall my face. Once when we were very Young we went to the same picnic and i fished you out of Fain Lew Don t you remember that Justine sat Down quite suddenly. Why she faltered. I remember that. I remember you too Only i d forgotten that your name was Curtis. I guess i got you mixed with Yarur younger brother the one i taught in sunday school. I thought i was writing to Benny Benny is out at Camp but he has measles just now. I m sorry if i be disappointed you. Perhaps Benny can come next there was a Flat note of Hurt in Hla voice n rather Wistful something in his eyes As he looked at her. No she exclaimed hastily. I m not at All disappointed. Glad it was and then she blushed at what she had sold. A delightful Pink Blush that went very Well with her springtime frock. So am said Curtis Pratt. They spent the afternoon together la the Park and they had supper to Gether at a quiet restaurant. More than once uni Stone Felt the envious eyes of some other girl fixed upon her the of some girl who envied her the company of so Fine looking a sol Dier just so had she herself Felt on so Many sundays past. But now now she Felt sorry for them those other for something told her that this Only the beginning of a great Many other sundays that were to come. Do you said Curtis Pratt As they walked slowly Home to her boarding House that i have never for gotten you since that Day of the picnic so Many years ago. I had to leave town soon after for school and col lege and i never caught More than glimpses of you in vacations. But i be never neither have she assented sort by. That is the never forgotten the Hoy who fished me out of the Creek. And his at least you remembered his Curtis agreed with a Little laugh. Fate did t let you forget it and i think she had a reason. May i come again next she agreed happily. And the sunday and the sunday after if you still want want to i guess by that time i la be wanting to come oftener than Sun Day. I m sure of said Justine with a con science stricken Little sigh i guess i be forgotten All about poor Benny. Give him. My Best wishes won t you Don t think he would have cared very much for a card from Bis sunday school teacher anyway. I m horrid but i m glad he never got Barcelona an Active City most Prog Cirive of All Spanish municipalities and Center of the revolutionary movement. The Rovoldt Onari movement to Spain in the City of Barcelona. The goal the revolutionists is a re Public und republics stand for Prog Ress. Of All Spanish cities Barcelona is the most progressive writes . For ten years the conservatives have been looking ask acc at this great modern shipping Aud manufacturing Center so different from their sleepy Inland strongholds und from the peas ant villages of the quiet Hills with political ideas of the last Century. Barcelona is a great world City. It is out distancing Marseilles As the commercial Queen of the Mediterranean. The spaniard has often been charged with a Lack of business and Enterprise. Barcelona is his answer. Here his factories rival those of Lancashire his shipping that of Liverpool. The great Industrial suburbs each a City in itself Are reminiscent of the outlying cities that Cluster about Manchester in the Industrial North of. England. Yet Barcelona remains characteristically Spanish. The City has taken the ugliness the bitter spirit of modern Industry and More nearly than any other Industrial Cen Ter has blended them with Beauty and latin Courtesy and Good nature. Bar Celona is Spain awakened but not Spain transformed. It is a sunny town with a Clear bracing air and a Blue sky that the smoke of a thousand chimneys never hides. It has plenty of Parks and tree shaded boulevards even its poorer quarters Lack the sordid Ness of the Anglo Saxon slum. The Flower markets the promenades the cafes Are thronged with loungers not of the Leisure classes but workmen in their Leisure time. The spaniard has Learned to work without forgetting How to Idle. And withal the crowds Are keen and Wideawake mightily interested in Public affairs and discuss ing politics with the heat that is a Birthright in the latin races. Barce Lona promises to remain at the fore front of progressive Spain. Calendar in head Good method now. That so few Are being printed. Little mental arithmetic required by system which explained Here Little rhyme to be committed to memory. Calendars for 1918 Are coins to be scarce partly on account of the paper shortage and partly because Advertis Ersmo cutting Down expenses the Large insurance companies for in stance having Niada it a Rule thut their agents will mave to print their own calendars. It used to one was flooded with calendars of sorts and shapes about the first of the year now one has to buy them. Why buy a Calendar if one can carry the whole thing in one s head there Are several ways in which one can Fig ure out the Day of the week upon which any Day of the month will fall but the majority of them require an amount of mental arithmetic that is beyond the Powers of the Man in a hurry or the woman arranging for a party. Here is a simple Calendar arranged by a memory expert. It consists of twelve words arranged As a rhyme. These twelve words Are indexes for the twelve months and they Are three to a line so As to make it easier to get at the months by taking them three at a time time flies fast men wisely say men think. Alas time s fooled away. Muskrats Are found edible Little animals sold and eaten in Many cities at Marsh according to correspondents. Newspaper correspondents advise says the Peoria journal that last fall ther appeared in the Washington Kew York and Boston markets Many barrels of plump Little animals All dressed and skinned which were sold Marsh it appears that for several weeks the Good people bought these animals cooked them according to the special directions and served them at family and party dinners As realizing that this food was really something vastly different from that of the Ordinary Rabbit. Then came the announcement that the Marsh Rabbit was nothing less than the Muskrat. All of which goes to show that even now the american people Are not averse to being fooled. In fact they like it. Bar Mim s statement holds True As it did when he displayed a Sand papered elephant As the Only sacred physician believes a genuine Rem Edy for the disease has been found.

He told the follow ing Story i dropped into an Oculi St s a couple of Days ago with a Friend who had broken his glasses. We found that gentleman immaculately Clad care fully fitting a pair of glasses on the pug nose of a bulldog with undershot jaw and Bandy legs. Well had to wait. A lady in handsome furs held the bulldog by the Chain. When the Jib was done she led it away. I Aski d the Oculi St " How do vein test the Visier of a dog s he replied i did t test it for vision.

" Kricht dollars the Oculi St White elephant in we sometimes think that this la becoming a Marsh Rabbit the initials of these words give us the Day of the week upon which the first of the months will fall in 1918, taking them in order. T stands for tuesday the for thursday. S is for saturday and a for sunday. M and w Are for monday and wednesday respectively. It is obvious that if one knows upon what Day of the week the first Day of any month will fall one has Only to add sevens to it to discover the dates of All similar Days of the week in that month. If the 1st of August Falls on a thursday the 8th, 15th, 22d and 29th must All be thursdays now suppose Yon have committed this Little rhyme to memory and wish to know upon what Day of the week the fourth of july will fall in 1918. July is the seventh month and the seventh word in our Couplet beginning the third line is men. As m stands for monday the 1st of july must be a monday so the 4th will be a thurs Day. Let As suppose your birthday is March 23. As March is the third month the word is at the end of the first line and the initial f shows that the 1st of March will be a Friday. If the following fridays Are the 8th, 15th and 22d your birthday will be on a sat urday in 1918. Suppose it la Christmas Day Yon Are looking Forward to. December is the last of the twelve months and the initial of the last word in our Little rhyme a a which stands for sunday. Then the sundays in december Wilt be the 1st, 8th, 15th and 22d, and Christ Mas Day will be three Days after Sun Day or wednesday. Uniform makes Many men Liberty Ball Bonds.

The Man was a red faced vacant looking specimen in civilian clothes who seemed not gifted with more1 Ordinary Inzetti Genet he could not stand up Brit tight.

Every time the sergeant gave u command the Beauty gave him u silly Grin and considered that he had done bib duty. So the sergeant took him to one Side. Well now to will have a lesson by ourselves. Now Vav Utah me the Serge it in Talent. For half an hour he tried to drum a Little intelligence. Into i Pupil s head but at the end of that time the Man was even More confused than before.

To us the same Mes us news from Home. World news is All right but our boys want news of this town. They want the Home newspaper. Publishers Are prevented from sending their papers free to anyone even boys in the service. Consequently a National movement has been started by col. William Boyce Thompson of new York who is acting As president of the Home paper service of America to give the boys what they Are calling for. Every Community is joining the movement let us that our boys Are not forgotten.

Every cent received will be used to Send this paper to our boys at the front. If at the end of the War there is any surplus it will be turned Over to the local red Cross committee. There is no profit in this to the even in Normal times subscriptions Are not sold at a profit. With War prices prevailing and the High rate of postage on papers sent to France our Cost will scarcely be covered by our full subscription Price.
