SPEAKING OF POISE.
Poise is something called self-confidence. The two go hand in hand at any
rate, and without self-confidence one's poise will be lacking.
When I was first asked to visit the motion picture theatres and speak to
my friends the idea was something of a nightmare to me. Never having
spoken a word on the stage in my life, every thought seemed to leave me
when I opened my mouth to speak publicly. No matter how carefully I had
prepared my chat, I managed to forget every single word that was in it.
That was when I first attempted personal appearances at motion picture
Gradually, however, I became more at ease, and at present it is every bit
as easy for me to speak from the stage as it is for me to talk informally to
my particular friends.
Poise is a quality which both you and I desire. We may cultivate it if we
go about the matter in the right way. A clever hostess or even a clever guesr.
must have poise.
The first step towards poise is control over the feelings. Never does a well
poised person show dislike or contempt for anything. If one has a temper
one overcomes it or at least controls it.
Besides being at ease themselves, well-poised persons have the indescrib:
able faculty of placing those about them at ease as well. Haven't you ever
heard a person say, "Oh, she is a wonderful hostess all enjoy themselves at

"I recommend Tanlac," said Mrs. T.
E. Hearn, "because it has helped me

"Nervous indigestion claimed me a
victim for over two years. Daily, and

Nothing I tried offered relief. If I
would lie down under such- conditions
I couldn't get my breatn. My nerves ;

wide awake until daybreak. If I slept
I suffered from bad dreams.
"Then I saw Tanlac advertised ,and
after having taken it for but a f ew ,
days my appetite showed Improvement. -I
find that I can eat any kind of veg- j

New Bern, N. C, Nov. 7. An acci- j
dent which resulted in damage to the
amount of about twenty-five dollars
to an automobile owned and driven
by Mr. M. S. Wiggs, occurred at the
corner of George streets yesterday
when the car collided with one of the
New Bern-Ghent Street Railway Com
The accident was unavoidable, say
those 'who witnessed it, and no dam
age is attached to the conductor on
the street car.
A Mr. Gardner, of Newport, was the
victim of a gang of pickpockets ;it
the union passenger station Saturday
afternoon and, in consequence, was
relieved of his pocketbook contain
ingquite a large sum of cash.
. Mr. Gardner told the police that he
telt some one's hand in his pocket,
turned around and saw the man and
made a grab for him, but at that time
two other men shoved against him
and knocked him down and that be-!
fore he had arisen, all three had dis
appeared. Several parties reported to the po
lice that they had been relieved of
their pocketbooks during the day
there is not the least doubt but that
this was done by an organized gang
of crooks follrmlng the Robinson circus.
