What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Year to Year.’* He divided life Into 12 lustrums—that is to say periods of five years—a^d likened 12 lustrums, 00 years to tbe round of the clock. f Sir William endeavors to describe the characteristics of growth, draw­ ing on a very wide knowledge of bi­ ography and a prodigious memory. He litings together a gnat mmibef of 11 - luminatitig facts. Sir William does not believe in tbe comparative useless­ ness of men over forty. He quotes some words of Lord Macaulay tu one of his speeches, “No greut work of tm- agluutinn has ever beeu produced uu- dor the age of thirty or thirty-five years, uud the Instances are few In which any have been produced under the age of forty.” Cervantes was fifty-two when he pub­ lished the first part of “Don Quixote,\ Banyan fifty when \The Pilgrim's Progress\ appeared, Defoe fifty-eight when he wrote \‘Robinson Crusoe,\ Scott forty-three wheu the first of all his Waverly novels was launched, and Milton fifty eight at the date of \Par­ adise Lost.\ At forty-one Duiuus wrote \The Three Musketeers.” At for­ ty-two Bacon set to work on his \.No­ vum Orguuum.\ At forty four New­ ton began to Issue Ids \Princlpbi and at forty-five Chaucer to write Ids “Can­ terbury Talcs.\ At forty-seven Mon­ taigne published Ids essays, and at forty-eight Lamb Ids \Essays 01 * Elia.\ liuht'luls launched Ids glgnnllc me­ dieval nuistcipiece at furl} nine, l-al- ward Fitzgerald was fifty when Ids “Omar Khayyam\ began to wait for recognition.

Th* W o n of the Bachelor«. In Belgium the bachelors lane be­ gun to tremble. Tbe provincial coun­ cil of Halnaut has voted for a bill im­ posing a surtax of 25 per cent on all the provincial taxes, tu be paid by male celibates. This does not prevent the tuconigt ble bachelors from persisting In celi­ bacy. They Invoke a legendary exam pie. It was in the time when certain men condemned to death were par doned If they consented to wed a maiden desirous to marry, who thus In her hand brought them to life. Now, one of these, at the hour when he was to he hanged, wanted to see first his future wife She was of a canonical age, and hardly a beauty. “Hang me 1 ” lie cried, and stepped to the gallows. Many of the Ilalnnnt celibates will therefore—annoyed or not pay the 25 per cent surtax. Return te Land of Their Fathers. For 167 years the Acadian people have carried with them the memory of the fateful Aug 1 st In 1755, which wit­ nessed the deportation of tlie Acad tang from the shores, of Minas Basin August 16,1022, In the village of Grand Pre, a host of Acadian descendants gathered on the very site of Die trag­ edy of expulsion and took possession of thelh heritage—historic ground on which they consecrated to the memory of their fathers the Acadian Memorial chapel. Exiled for nearly 170 yea rn, their wanderings in strange, far-off vil­ lages and cities, the race scattered to the four corners of the continent, It seemed almost Incredible that the Acadlans should again he restored to that fertile Ggspereau valley, cleared, tilled and enriched by the farms which they had homesteaded in the early set­ tlement of Acadia. Manhattan Brought 8m» 11 Price. The three-hundredth anniversary of the founding of New Tork will lie cele­ brated la 1926, L. Wlttert van Hoogtand, in an arti­ cle, “Holland and Her (Monies,\ just published, retells in an Interesting way the story of Peter MFnnit’s purchase of the Island of Manhattan, 24,000 acres, for $26, the assessed valuation of which Is $ 6 ,000,000,«00. Mmnit, who later became first governor of Manhat­ tan, represented the chartered West India company of Amsterdam. Up to half a doaen years ago it was generally believed, and in many circles that belief persists, that New Amster­ dam was founded, rfbt 1 b 1626, but in 1024. Recent investigation and discov­ eries igdct to the fallacy of this cou- tentlon, say« Mr. Van Hoogtand.

Frick niuuiiiiiuiiuivmtiutuiuuuiminiiiiulj THE GARDEN OF THE CLODS T.\' THE nestling vales and on the • grassy plains which lie at the foot of the Great White mountain that points the way to heaven lived the Chosen People. Here they (lwelt in happiness together. And above them, on the summit of the mighty peak, where stands the western gates to heaven, dwelt the Mmiitou. In order that the Chosen People might know; of his love, the Manitou stamped upon the peak the image of Ids face, that all might see aud wor­ ship him. And each day the Choseu People cutne to pray aud wor­ ship, where the first bright rays of the rising sun embossed tbe image in (heir golden glow. There in happi­ ness they dwelt, their realm extend­ ing just its far us they might see the lace of Manitou over hill and plain. And the laud was fair and Die chosen tribe was envied by all the dwellers ef the plains who knew not Manitou. But one day, as Die storm clouds played about the Peak, the image of Die Manitou was hid. Low hanging < totals swept down from out the sk.v and crept to earth in mist amt fog and min. and tbe happy, smiling face ef Manitou was bid, and none could s c It. And down from Die uorth suepi a barbaric host of giants, taller than Die spruce which grew upon Die moan tuln side and so great Dint they shook 1 tie earth w tl Ii their si rides. Willi the invading Imsls came ter­ rible beasts, unknown and aw tut in Ihelr miidillno-s, monsirous beasts Dial would devour Die eailh amt tread It down. And as they came on lb-> Chosen People were frightened, an i ill their fear they tied to Die th’h Mount, for tn Die sight of their lilnm foes they were as grussheppers. As the lliv titling tribes on me oil. Die 1 'lioseli I’eiiplo tell on I heir faces and prayed to MiinUmi for aid Then runic 10 pass a wondrous mirnole. The olouds broke away and sunshine smote Die peak. And from Die very sum mil, looking down upon Die valley and (lie plains appeared Die MnUiloii him­ self SIcrul} he looked upon Die m Holers, and ns lie looked the giiinls and the beasts turned into stone As then they stood, Die giants stand Inifiiy 'their scattered hands, now rock of red and brown, are found to eu^l sod north, lime worn and scant d, with legs deep hurjed in Die drifting sands. Some botfler than the rtad are near Die mount, and some are far away In IfiVlO'i'ed canons as ii tie-} sought to hide. Some ladd Hair shields uplified as If to meet the stigi.v gaze ef Manitou, while oihi-rs crouched in horror, were struck dm\h and turned to stone there when ifi- v stood. The beasts Die giants dene tire stranger still--big, ilmie.v me- pluints willi clumsy trunks. ....... .... and massive bears and timid deer, smooth, glossy hearer with flat, noil.v lulls; Imge frog's and timid Girlies. All were changed and stand today tts they stood then when, living they defied Die Manitou. They covered alt the valley- ilo-se living men and beasts now turned to stone. And If you doubt this story, go and see them standing (here today as they stood then. Time worn ami gray they are from countless storms, half-buried in Die sweeping sands, and yet If you look closely you can see thplr forms, the giants and the ben-os that hoped to steal Die Ifind where dwelt Die tribesmen who were our fa therB. When the white men came they called the spot the Garden <-f the Gods, because, they say, the rocks nre great and odd; hut we who know Die story of the race still call it “Valiev of the Miracle,\ for here it was that Manitou gave aid to save his chosen people and left there these rocks and forms of men ail turned to stone, as warning to ail of us who limy some time attempt defiance to him and his commands. . Note—The Vies for years lived on the eastern slope of the’ RockitN, with their big town situated near what is now the city of Colorado Springs. This legend refers to the Garden of Die Gods, just otaside th# city of Manitou —a spot that has become world fa- mens for the unique beauty of its rock farmafkma. Faefty Memory.
