By all accounts Eve was a great we, man. She was our universal ancestor. None of the genealogists ever get any farther back than Eve. And Eve was a suffragist. She was an equal partner with the "head of the house" in the fruit garden known as Eden. If Adam didn't feel like trying the qualities of the apple,--or lemon, as some believe it to have been, while the Californians declare it was an orange--Eve invented the initiative to meet the occasion, and so became the first progressive. What though both Adam and Eve suffered - 6:...- 4" " the recall in consequence?

Perhaps we have not shown Eve so much honor as she deserves because the early chroniclers did not dress up their facts with as much wealth of de- scriptive laudation as marks the effus- ions on the society page of the journals of today. It is not too late to honor Eve. Why not have congress erect a monument to her fame? i Promote Home Buying One of the most effective ways for local merchants to oppose encroach- ments of mail order houses is to adver- The story that he has a head for tise liberally in the best local medium, business is false.

Taking It Seriously. "This is awful!" said the pathetic Mexican, burying his face in his hands and sending up an occasional groan in mixed Spanish that sounded as though the town pump was trying to do its duty, though sadly in need of repairs.

PERT PARAGRAPHS' Some of us are so busy making fail- ires that we don't make any friends. It is hard for Us ever to find the time to do a thing that we don't like to do. Instead of waiting for a dead man's shoes it seems more sensible to turn to and make a pair for oneself. It is easy to make mistakes, but any of our friends can tell us how to rectify them. The race may not be to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but either is a good bet. The man whn doesn't tell his trou- bles is popularly supposed to have none at all The man who Isn't on time doesn't lose It waiting. It Is said that we deserve what we et. but most of us can't, see how it appened. When we get to thinking that the world can't get on without us we are llue to get a Jar. If what we'd like to do were the basis upon which our deserts were reckoned, what a windfall we'd get ome day.
