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.

In fact, those who don’t may wonder what good there cun be In staying out of bed so late, unless oilier matters besides arbitrary time have our Inter­ est—Just to say good by to the old year and some kind of welcome to the new, To such it makes no difference that poets have marked the tpTie In well remembered verse, ¡such, of course, win'll perchance they may be awake at the special podded moment which separates the years, do not ea­ gerly tarn to the familiar verse; ftr'njr old, wild bolls, tn the wild sky, ,’l'l e llylng cloud, Dio frosty light, (1 e year Is dying In the night, feld«’ out, wild bells, and let bhn die. This we say because there are two types of people both having virtues of their kind—«ml one needs not to judge the other -and to one there Is no special appeal in what motes Die oilier tn Die spell of the passing year.

How f a r Individuals treasure the priv­ ilege of Die New' Year vigil one could not well make confident assertion. It came to notice recently that Haw­ thorne, as recorded In the “Memories” by his daughter, Bose Hawthorne La- throp, was impressed by the choice mo­ ments of the passing year—and, poet- soul that l*e had, though not given to making verse, yielded a very sensitive response to the midnight appeal. For she say*: “My father used to treat tfee Old and the Sew Year with the deepest respect.

The tv/o friends had many an ar­ gument on the cubject, he of the good roads county exulting in what the f i n d roads did for him; he who had poor roads being glad at the smallness of his taxes - There seemed no Win nig the argu­ ment for either. The one had a defi­ nite saving in hauling and time, the other had much smaller taxes. fheu the farm bouse and barn wwbere lived the opponent of good roads caught fire. He telephoned in­ stantly to his county seat; meanwhile his friend was also crying “fire!\ to his county seat, over his telephone. The lire engines from the up-to- date eouuty seat arrived and put out the fire etona those from the poor roads eouuty were seen. Of course the poor toad advtcate had to pay the cost uf that fire run; nt was not in his county. And of course the cost was much,much more than a road tax would have been— hut he paid it cheerfully “Either we get good roads next election or I’m going to move across the line!” he said.

AT THE EBB HOW TO DISTINGUISH THE GEN- UINE FATHER The face and head of a man tell the story “I love children, I will care for them and my wife” or ibey reveal the contvwry, louder than words. When the faculty of parental love Is combined with the developed faculty *f conscientiousness In Die lop bead, ♦bat man will never go back on Ids children or wife. Amativeness, locufed further down on the bend, nearer the neck than parental love, is a different quality al­ together. With it goes a fat fullness In the chin, a fullness of the entire under eyelid, long eyes with sllt-like openings, peering out and partly closed. The skin Is suffused.
