We take our share of fretting,
Of grieving and forgetting;
The paths are often rough and steep,
and heedless feet may fall;
But yet the days are cheery,
And night brings rest when weary,
And somehow this good old planet is
a good world, after all.
Though sharp may, be our trouble,
The joys are more than double,
The brave - surpass the cowards, and
the leal are like a wall
To guard their dearest ever,
To fail the feeblest never;
And somehow this old world remains
a bright world, after all.
There's always love that's caring,
And shielding and forbearing,
Dear woman's love to hold us close
and keeps our hearts in thrall ;
There's home to share together
In calm or stormy weather,
And while the hearth-flame burns it is
a good world, after all.
The lisp of children's voices,
The chances of happy choices,
The bugle's sounds of hope and faith,
through forge and mists that call ;
The heaven that stretches o'er us,
The better days before us,
They all combine to make this earth a
good world, after all.

John and. Millie Thompson had been
married but four years when a financial
panic came, and the firm for which John
worked closed its doors, with several oth

ville.- , '

management, little more than paid the

2-year-old Madeline could not bring the

the "little mother" came to the door she

dreaded crash had come.
. Long into the night they sat and tried
to think of some plan by which their lit1
tie home, which had meant so much of
sacrifice and which was now nearly half
paid for, might be saved.
But neither could think of any plan,
and in the morning John started out-with
a heavy heart to look for something, any
thing honest, to do.
But after several days of fruitless
search he came home one night and told
his wife that one of the other men had
just received a letter from a brother in
the west urging him to form a party and
come out at once to work in a mine
which promised rich increase.
As the dayS went on one man after
another joined the party, and they talk
ed enthusiastically to John Thompson of
the wealth they were, sure of gaining in a
"short time, begging him to go with them.
The day -before the party intended

in her life. She soon began to realize that
the neighbors were feeling the hard times
themselves and were obliged to do their
own work, but she struggled bravely on,
hoping in a few months to hear from her
husband that the mining was a success.
But after a few months had passed and
letter after letter came with discouraging
news, Millie's courage began to fail her.
After about a year's struggle she se

Millie kept sending, cheerful letters until
she got word that the Brenville party had
struck a rein in another state and the
men in the old camp had lost sight of
. After two years of uncertainty she re
ceived a copy of a western paper con
taining this item: "Mine explosion! Nine
men killed!" Then followed the names of
the dead, and among them John Thomp
son. The last blow proved too much for Mil
lie's health, and she was obliged to give
up her position as housekeeper and take
some money she had saved and go to an
other town several miles away to try to
regain her health by resting.
Her health improved but little, and she
crushed her pride and wrote a letter to
her wealthy father in the south, whose
wishes she had disregarded in marrying,
begging him for the sake of her little girl
to forgive her and take her and her child
home. , .
Her letter was returned with "You
have chosen your own course" written
across the top.
. Several years passed by, and Millie
drifted from one place to another, earn
ing a little here and there, until she found
a home in a country town in northern
Vermont, where she could do the village
sewing and support in ease herself and
Madeline, now 12 years old.
Throughout the town the "widow and
little Lena" were loved and respected.
One afternoon as the child was play
ing in a field near the railroad track she
heard a rumbling and, looking up, saw
to her horror that a huge rock had slid
down the opposite hillside directly on the
track. Just then she heard the whistle
of the daily express. Hurrying up the
meadow toward the bend, she snatched
the red sun bonnet from her head and
waved it at the engineer as the train
came speeding toward her.
The engineer, thinking something must
be wrong, applied the brakes and stopped
the train just a few rods from the great

But one kind looking gentleman whom
Madeline had noticed stepped op to her
and, taking her hand, said: "I want first
to tell this little girl's parents that they
should be proud of her. Will you show
me where you live, my dear?"
The child's home was very near, and

They Are Dropping by the Way While the
Great Work of Paine's Celery Com
pound Goes Steadily on.
If ever a person needs tojBxercise the
God-given quality of common sense, it
is when he begins to be sick.
One can afford to be stupid or. freak
ish, or careless and frivolous when
well. There is no man so poor, if he
has his health, and his nerves are in
(rood order, his musles sound, and his
stomach normal, who cannot correct
But the moment one falls sick
when as sure as fate, disease with its
mild beginnings, if not promptly
checked, is- bound to develop into
serious illness there is no longer time
to experiment or blunder.
The experience of the world has
shown that in every case of sickness
resulting from impaired nerves and
impure blood, Paine's celery com
pound does immediate and effective
good 1 For the last ten years the thou
sands of authentic reports of indi
vidual cases have multiplied, until it
can be absolutely said that in no one
case does this great remedy ever fail to
benefit, and if taken promptly, to cure 1
And yet during that time a hundred
worthless nostrums under patented
catchy names have been foisted upon
the public, and some of them for a
brief period have had large sales But
every one of them having been tried
has been found sadly wanting, and af
ter their unscrupulous proprietors
have made all the money they could
in defrauding the well and seriously
harming the sick, these quack medi
cines and their catchy, silly names
have disappeared from vie! There is
a concoction being sold in this state to
day, where its speculative advertising
was begun a year later than in other
states, a year or two ago, which has
gone the way of its predecessors so
rapidly that in eyery section of the
country where it was first exploited,
the sales have dropped off as rapidly
as they begun, and the obscure com
pany behind it finds It no longer pos
sible, even by the most sensational
methods, to create any demand what
ever for it.
Unlike all these and other such pre-
Earations, Paine's celery compound
as stood the test of time and experi
ence. It is not a patent medicine; it
is the discovery of one of the greatest
physicians the world has bad, prob
ably the most successful practitioner
in this country, whose reputation was
already established as a specialist in
nervous diseases, and who was and is

All these have had, or are having

effective tonic and honest invigorator,
has not suffered from the attempted
substitution of other preparations.
Paine's celery compound is a nledicine

According to the well known ethics
of reputable physicians, this prescrip
tion was at the very outset freely pre
sented to physicians in good standing,
and the formula is gladly given them
For that reason Paine's celery com
pound has never been included among
patent medicines. Coming from so
high a source, and sosaarchingly tried
and recommended, physicians have
lon employed it as unhesitatingly
as they have used their official prepa
rations. It drives the poison germs of deep
seated disease from the blood.
It brings buoyancy of spirit in place
of lassitude and despondency.
It allows the overtaxed system to
start fairly on the road to health.
It procures the sleep so necessary to
