Isn t Time
Preparing for a briel holiday at a summer cottage on one ot our lovely
Western lakes, thu writer of (his column tossed a levy old magazines in his
grip wherewith io pass tin idle hour while lolling under tlio trees. Glancing
througli one of these his eye was caught by an article appearing under the
heading which appears at the top ol this column.
I low oflen are peoplo heard to exclaim, "I haven't time," or "There isn't
time." uttered by way or excuse for not doing something which ought to be
clone. And how false and shallow such an excuse can be! Tho necessary
time can always be. found for the discharge of one's duties and obligations if
thy will to do is in evidence.
llut on the'other hand, It is perfectly true, lhat "there isn't time" for many
���Jungs upon whicli, nevertheless, countless people expend, an enormous amount
���of very valuable time, resulting in pure waste.
I'ime may appear long and slow of movement when measured by centuries
and thu history of nations, but it is fast and Heeling when gauged by the life
of individuals. Men who have lived long and very active lives filled with
noteworthy achievements have at the close, of iheir careers expressed their regrets in the words, "So much to do, so Utile done!"
Time, coupled with good health, is tho most precious of gifts to mankind,
.because the span of human life is brief, every moment should be put to the
lest possible use. Sufficient of it should be devoted to healthful pursuits
and invigorating exercise aud recreation in order that the hody may be kept
���strong and, physically At to keep the mind alert and active and the body capable of the work It may be called upon to do. Only so can the best use be
made of all the time allotted to the individual.
Hut, let it be repeated and emphasized,, there isn't time in even tho long-
c-st life for some things. Sorrow conies to all at some time or other, but
""ilicrc isn't time" to waste In brooding over one's s-.orrow aud losses. To do
so merely means to further shorten life.
. Tliere isn't time ln ihis life for worry. Worry kills. It accomplishes
nothing, but is wholly destructive :i*ndi undermining. It is right, proper and
Altogether sensible and prudent to take thought of and for Ihe future, but
many people confuse this desirable trait with needless, senseless,.worry.
*uiJi\: Is too brief lo hunt for grief, for thorns among lhe dowers."
Hurt we may be today by what friends or others say about us. We may
1)e misjudged, our actions misrepresented, our words distorted,. We may be
maligned, slandered, and made the victims of false rumor. These things cut
and hurl,, hut "there isn't time" to let lliem long anuoy. Along with them
tliere are also many things to make us happy aud glad, and. we need all the
time there is for the bright and joyous things ol life.
Life is too short for thoughts of malice, hatred and revenge.     Wrongs
- may bc inflicted upon us, bul by pursuing the even icnor of our ways, tho
mouth of th.e^shuiderer will bc closed aud his evil words effectually .answered.     "Life isn't'long, just lime for song, and love, aud Ihings sublime.     Be
not concerned, with thoughts lhat burned.-    Good friends, there isn't time."
People tliere are who are so busy in this life getting everything out of it
���which seems to them all-important and worthwhile that Ihey can find uo time
to think of and prepare for a future life in which we all believe, while there
are others so absorbed with thoughts of that future life that thoy become

The Empire's Food Supply
Faced ,With Shortage Britain Would
Have to Depend on Dominions
(Since) Great Britain can feed
only, two-fifths of its people from its
own resources, it is fairly obvious that
a world shortage in food would hit
Great Brilain first and hardest. Great
Britain's hope "61 escape from the
worst consequence could- only be in
the empire. -.Yet} what measures have
been taken to ensure that empire resources should be at her command Jn
any such dire development? Australian and Soutli African opportunities in beef are neglected in favor of
foreign supplies. West Indian sugar
has been victimized by foreign���and

wheat finds its way to the United
States whilst the United States export

This Can OnIy.be Done by Keeping the Blood Rich and Red
If you would regain your vigor aud
ambition, keep your blood and'nerves
in good condition. Anaemia, or thin
blood lowers the vitality, starves Uie

thin the skin loses its color, the

built a House large enough to hold

Power of Invisible Rays to
Produce Vitamines
The power of the invisible ultraviolet rays, to produce different tints
and degrees of brightness in different
materials has been vividly illustrated
to New York theatre audiences, bc-
cause this power has been used .tor
some of the most brilliant ��� theatrical
effects in recent years.
_ Costumes white or dull in color under ordinary light are mado to blaze
and gleam with many hues under ultraviolet rays.
" These spectacles were based on the
researches of Professor It. W. .Wood,
of Johns Hopkins University. By
flooding tb o-membcrs of the Association for Advancement of Science with j
ultra-violet rays in 3921 he gave the.
first public exhibition of the odd effects since popularizea7ron the stage.
Ultra-violet rays have since been
used widely In deciphering palimpsests, or twice-written manuscripts.'
In Uie last year research has been
concentrated on the power of ultraviolet rays-to produce vitamines.

however, the sentence may be pronounced for treason, piracy, or for

Music Of the Elements
Orchestral   Effect  Produced  By Wind
Under  Certain   Conditions
We are so accustome'd to man-made
music that we seldom realize that the
elements have ways . of producing
music of their own. In tha, Malay
States there are fields of bamboo that
in certain conditions make a volume
of sound that fiom afar strikes the
ear like a huge -orchestra" of flutes.
The effect is caused by a'small worm
which bores holes ..in, tho bamboo
stems; the wind, blowing through the
holes, produces an astonishing variety
of notes that sometimes blend iu one
great open-air ��� symphony. " .
Another form of outdoor orchestra
is to be, found, on the Scottish coast,
where the sand, in sine districts; produces distinct musical notes' when
walked on or slruck by a stick.
Water, in certain circumstances, is
capable, of yielding extremely pleasing musical effects, a fact realized by
the a'neient Greeks, who had a number
of musical instruments operated solely bv water. Certain North Ameri-
can'tribes of Indians make music by
filling' buffalo hides with water-ancl
beating .them with sticks.

His Majesty's Understudy
King George Is Often Represented By
A Deputy
Owing1 to the number of public and
social engagements King Georgo has
to keep, it often becomes necessary
for Ills Majesty to be represented by
a deputy. �� <,-,.
The man who represents the King,
be he prince, ..peer, or commoner, becomes for the moment invested with
kingly, rank. ' He must be-addressed
as "Sir," iio one must sit down in his
presence,-tuid ho takes precedence
over all others, a't whatever function
he may attend on behalf of King
George.'    '��� ,
At all public functions attended by
the King, a reception committee must
be appointed to receive him, ami Ihe
same ceremony must be accorded to
the King's., representative.
When attending any ceremony in
London, the King's representative is
provided with one of the royal car-:
riages. but no outriders are sent. Nor!
is he over'accompanied by a military j
guard, unless-he is a member of thej
royalfamily.
Not Harmful To Eyes
; If you can read, write or do other
work without tiring your eyes, there
is no harm in going to  the movies, r.
specialists'in eye diseases say. -Tests
with 150 persons showed that those
who suffered eye fatigue after watching a motion picture film, also became
tired when doing other work that af- '
focted the vision, .so that the movlps--
were not responsible for thc trouble,    -i.
