WHAT   TO   TAkE   DURING
THE NEW YEAR.
Take this paper.
Take comfort—if you can.
Take things easy, within reason.
Take the girl you love to be
your wife.
Take care of your health. It
is the most valuable thing you
have.
Take a hint when it is intended
for you. Don't wait to be knocked down.
Take flattery as an insult and
an honest compliment as something to be grateful for.
Take pains to be faithful and
conscientious in business. It
will bring you success.
Take offence only at things
worth being offended at. It is a
sure evidence of a small mind to
notice trifles.
' Take hold of any work that
comes to your hand rather than
be idle. Luck always waits upon the busy man.
v Take time to be polite and
kind always. Rudeness never
pays. The boor may think so
but he is wrong.
Take trouble like a man. Don't
go whining about  it when  it
' comes, but shut your mouth and
stand up under it resolutely.
Take a trip now and then, and
try to see something outside of
the town you live in. Travel is
one of the greatest of educators.
Take pains to do your work well.
The conscientious worker is the
one who gets to the front- and
the one that never needs be idle.
Take care that you make this
day a model for all of the days
to come—and then copy after it.
Live this day so that it will give
you no regrets.
Take time, young man, to go
out with your sister. If she is a
good girl she is much more desirable company for you than
that other girl who flirts with
you so desperately.
Take the sunshine into your
life as something to be grateful
for; don't darken it with shad-
■ ows of your own making. Trouble will come soon enough without your coining it.
Take your wife and children
sion one time and another, has
filled the world with enemies and
deluged it in blood. Wait to hear
both sides of a story before you
speak.
Take a wife if you are able to
support a wife, a very, very,
stylish one. It is every able bodied man's duty to help some good
woman through the world.
Where would you be now if your
father had not done this?
Take heart, if you are cast
down. Your luck will change
ere the year is out What though
the clouds do cover now, the sun
will shine by and by. No life is
made up altogether of shadows,
and God never yet wholly deserted a resolute man or a brave
woman. Fight on and victory
will come at last.
Take a rest if you are able to
afford it.   Rest is sweet and you
don't wear out while you are
resting.   The Saviour bade the
weary to come unto Him and he
promised them—test.
Swear off, though your companions rail;
You may succeed; but if you fail
'Tis better to resolve and fail,
Than never to resolve at all.
How the years come and vanish! When the Christmas bells
have ceased their ringing we
stand facing the New Year
which comes with noiseless pace
out of the future and we wonder
what it will bring us. We are
certain of one thing, that in our
hands is vested the power to
make the year one of character
growth—If the old year has
brought to us failuies with the
new year the tide may turn.
Failure is sometimes the stepping
stone to coming success. The
past is gone, but the present is
left us in which to work. We
must conquer difficulties and not
let them conquer us, then what
was considered a possibility may
become a reality,
It takes what seems much like
drudgery to do anything well
Let us during the new-born year
take all the good that lies within our reach. The beauty and
the glory of the world are close
at hand but some see nothing but
clay. Let us hold fast to duty.
This will be of .value in the storm
or in the sunshine. The most
successful life is the one that has
done the most for his fellowman.
Happy then is the man who has
that in his nature that acts on
others as the April sun on violets.
The days, weeks and years
slip away like water in a running
stream. Time's great clock never loses a momen t. Relentlessly,
surely the moments pass, and
our eager hands are not able to
detain them. We cannot -keep
back the flying years, but we
can and - should keep the blessings they bring. Hold fast to
the lessons they have taught
Keep the memory of their joys,
Enrich every day of life with the
garnered wealth of the days behind. The years pass, but they
leave their treasure with us, if
our hands and heart are open to
receive them, so as with one
hand we shake farewell to the
last year let us stretch out the
with you when you go out to be [other hand to warmly greet the
amused.   That is not a proper j coming year.
amusement for you that you can-1 .
not take your wife to. and you
know it.
Take  as  much care of your
money as you can, if your means
are limited; but dont try to save
your smiles or your kind words.
The more liberal you  are with
these the more you will have.
Take a walk-several of them.
It is healthful to walk, and if it
is a nice moonlight night and
some rich old man's daughter is
especially healthful.
Take time, young woman, to
be kind to your brother, and go
out with him when he wishes
you to do so.   He is one of your
best friends, sure.   He will protect, you always.   Take time to
be good to him. ,
Take pains to hear both sides
of a story before you come to a

ONE PERSON OUT OF EVERY
TEN IN CANADA BOUGHT
VICTORY BONDS
The latest returns in the Victory Loan campaign show a total
782,714 subscribers, or one subscriber for every ten people in
Canada. This establishes a new
record with respect to the proportion of the population of a
country subscribing to its War
Loans. The previous record was
held in Great Britain, where one
person out of every twenty-three
subscribed to the last War Loan.
In the Liberty Loan campaign in
United States, bonds were sold
to one person out of every twenty-seven of the population.
In many cities, towns and districts in Canada, the proportion
of the population buying Victory
Bonds was even higher than one
in ten. In a number of cases it
was as high as one in four.
The achievement in connection
with Canada's Victory Loan,
while primarily due to the splendid spirit of patriotism that pervades the country, is another
evidence of what may be accomplished through press advertising by an adequate selling organization.     . j.
HE KNOWS WHEN WAR WILL.
END.
Absolute knowledge I have none,
But my aunt's washerwoman's
son.
Heard a policeman on his beat
Say to a Laborer on the street
That he had a letter just last
week
Written, in the finest Greek
From a ChineseCoolie in Timbuc-
too,
Who got it straight from a circus
clown
That a man   in  the Klondike
heard the news
From a bunch of South American stews
About somebody in Borneo
Who heard of a man claimed to
know
Of a swell society female rake
Whose motherin-law will undertake
To prove that her seventh husband's neice
Has stated in a friendly piece
That she has a son who has a
friend
Who knows just when the war
will end.—Selected.
"Give my love to your mother,"
said a sweet-faced lady to the
young friend she was leaving at
the station. We hope the love
was carried safely and the pleasant message given. Too often
these tender parting words are
considered as mere matters of
course. It should not be so. If
anybody send us love in this troublesome world we want to be assured of it, for love is heart sunshine, better than gold, or silver,
or houses, or lands.
