A LITTLE TALK ON COURAGE
Dear Children If there is one thins in this world which is admired
more than all others, it is COURAGE. It takes a great deal of courage
to be a child. When you are grown up, people have a tendency to let you
alone, but when you arc n child ,it sometimes seems as if the whole world
is against you, especially automobiles.
The average young child does not know what FEAR is, but as ho
Crows up he is presented with all sorts and kinds of fear which he must
shake off before he has any courage.
If you go out in tho street and lie down, every wagon, automobile and
vehicle that comes along will run over you, BUT if you STAND YOUR
GROUND, if you stand up, everything will go around you.
Courage requires determination and the world loves those who are
It takes little courage to do what is wrong compared with the courage
it takes to do what is right. If you know what is right, the only thing to
do is to Btand up and watch the wagons and automobiles go around you.
It takes courage to speak the truth.
It takes courage to get up in the morning, it takes courage to wash
your face, it takes courage to go to school, and to recite your lessons. Thero
is not anything in the world that does not require a certain amount of
It takes courage to go through the world without a loving mother and
it takes courage .to make your way without the strong guiding arm of a
father and and it takes supreme courage to go along lighting our battles

face when Kemp's low monotone faded
out altogether and a smllo in Lleber's
blue eyes, but neither said a word. From
the corral camo tho grunts and sighs
of cattle bedding down. Horses stamped
in the stables. Over tho great ware

GOITRE OPERATION FAD
CONDEMNED BY DOCTOR
By WILLIAM A.
WE HEGnET to say that goltro opera
tions in some cities havo degenerated
Into a veritable fad.
If wo had an exophthalmic goitre we
would not accept as final tho opinion of
an operating surgeon na to tho advisa
bility of surgical treatment. Wo should
deslro the opinion of our attending physi
cian, after ho had observed tho progress
of tho caso at least a few weeks and
preferably under medical and general
treatment. In fact, the family doctor's
advice would take first place, tho sur
geon's second place, In our decision.
There seems to be an impression among
a certain group of surgeons that endemic
or exophthalmic goltro won't get well
unless n portion of the diseased thyroid
gland Is extlrpited. If this were correct,
the surgeon's decision to operate would
bo entirely Justifiable. But this happens
to bo incorrect. Fully one-third of tho
cases of exophthalmic goltro seen in
private practice do ultimately progress to
complete recovery after a period of years.
If all patients could avail themselves of
tho physiological rest which Is so helpful
In the treatment of most cases of ex
ophthalmic goitre, there would be but
rare need of operation.
Medical treatment should bo continued
from S to 21 months.
Surgical treatment frequently leaves
the patient in an exhausted state (ex
haustion caused by tho disease, not by
tho operation), which requires many
month.3 of careful medical treatment after
tho operation In order to restore fairly
Of course thero are exceptional cases of
very severe exophthalmic goltro in which
operation must bo considered as a Ilfe
Nevertheless, too many surgeons are
doing too many goitre operations, and
too many patients are apparently anxious
to submit to this fad. It appears to havo
taken tho place of tho rormer appendicitis
fad. Nowadays, good surgeons do not
Insist upon an operation In every caso of

Kemp came to himself, blushed and
hurried out ns If on urgent business.
Lleber looked at Gerry's thoughtful face
and smiled. "Who'd havo thought he'd

"I think," replied Gorry, "It was your '

"Perhaps that was It," said Lleber.
"He's a queer one. He never asked me.
It Just occurred to me to suggest It, be
cause I'm getting to enjoy having Kemp
around. Look at last night."
Gerry nodded. Ills eyes fell o the
clock and ho got up with a start. Tho sun
was at Its highest when he reached Fa
zenda Flores. He cnught sight of Father
Mathlns' great white umbrella on tho
bridge and urged True Hluo Into ,a final
gallop. Hut Father llathlas was not un
der his umbrella. Instead, Gerry found
Margarita nnd her toddling son, "Thou
hast been away a long time," said Mar
garita, reproachfully. "The priest Is at
tho house and I took his umbrella thnt
I nnd the Man might watch for thee In
Gerry Jumped off Ills horse ond kissed
her, Then ho picked up his son und set
him In the saddle. Margarita screamed.
Truo Wuo arched his neck nnd looked
cautiously around nt his featherweight
burden. The young horse stood very still
whllo Margarita fought past Gerry's nrm
and dragged the Man from his perilous
perch to her bosom. And manlike, tho
Man protested with a bad-tempered,
whole-lunged wall that rent the air nnd
brought Uona iMaria and tho priest to the
corner of the houso to peer nt them with
eyes shaded under cupped hnnds.
A few days later the rains camo In
earnest. Unceasing rrentB that drew n
continual hum from tho tiles of the roof,
sought out cracks, forgotten during tho
long dry season, and dripped In to remind
tho cozy household that outsldo tho whole
world was wet.
Gerry spent two days In tho wet closing
his sluice gate and shoring It from tho In
side ngalnst eventualities. Then ho re
paired to the houso and, after lavishing
his Inforced idleness on his son for a day
or two, begnn to work feverishly on fur
ther knlck-knacks for the house. Occa
sionally ho sallied oik and ell ibed tho
slippery roof to mend a leak, Margarita,

WOMAN PROFESSIONAL TALKS
' ON AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHY
Miss Laura Reeves
Says Bank Account
and Friends Needed
"milKFlK nro two very Important
JL requisites for the amateur photog
rapher who would be a professional," re
marked Miss Laura Jtceve, ono of our
best-known women In this sort of work,
"nnd those two things are a good bank
account to start on and plenty of friends
preferably tho kind of friends who want
to havo pictures taken."
Knowing how Interesting this special art
has proved to many a camera fiend who
spends hours In developing, printing and
posing subjects Just for pleasure, the pos
sibility of turning these Into a lucrative
business naturally presented Itself to tho
mind of tho writer. It was In answer to
a question on tho opportunities which nro
open to women photographers, and In re
sponse to the many Inquiries on the sub
ject which have been Bent to tho Evening
LnnoBR, that tho project was referred to
so able a Judge.
"You see,'' continued Miss Reeve, "pho
tography Is nn expensive hobby. Your
apparatus costs a, great deal, and every
Improvement in this line must bo looked
into, nnd the newest 'stunts' adopted If
you want to bo a success. You can't con
fine yourself lo portrait work, cither. It
isn't possible. There must bo n supplo
mentary knowledge of enlarging, reduc
ing, developing, retouching and any
nmount of technicalities of this kind.
Then, too, comes the question of In
teriors. "Tnklng Interiors is nn art In Itsolf,
nnd every good photographer has to
know IL Thcso supplementary arts, such
as I havo already described, aro what
you might call staples. Thoy are, In
other words, money-making. If you want
to devote your time to art you must re
sign yourself to going without money for
a while the length, of tlmo depending In
a largo moasuro on your friends. If they
want artistic work . and aro willing to
pay for It, well and good." A broad
smile accompanied Miss Reeve's twinkling
eyes ns she mado tho last remark. Evi
dently she had no Illusions as to art for
"What would you suggest aa tho best
way for a woman to learn tho professional
side of photography? And la thero any
opening for her when sho has mastered
It?" Rhe was asked.
"Get yourself Into somebody's studio,"
sho returned promptly, "If you can find
any ono who will bo bored with a begin
ner. Learn how things are done and do
the samo. If you want to learn, and your
professional Is willing to help you, thero
should bo no trouble.
"The Lantern nnd Lenao Olid, of this
city, holds meetings every Wednesday
afternoon at 3 in tho Fuller Building. This
Gild is composed of professional women
photographers and amateurs. We have
n studio fitted up for all kinds of tech
nical work, wo discuss tho newest
'kinks' along these lines, and thero 13
always something interesting to learn.
Tho only thing necessary to the amateur
to Join Is that sho be vouched for by at
least two members of tho Guild."
"What marks the dividing line between
the amateur and the professional?" camo
the next query.
"Only the courage to hang out your
shingle," laughed Mls3 Reeve. "A gentlo-

man told me onco that It required at least
10 years for any business to get on a
paying basis. Now, In answer to tho
question about tho opportunities which
aro opon to women photographers, I
should Just say this there ara women
and women, and they may or may pot ba
successful photographers. It Isn't a ques
tion of a hobby, It Is a question of a liv
ing, and once a woman does succeed, her
chances for making a living nro as good
as any man's. But she needs tact, and
patience, and application, and, above all,
a keen sense of humor. The latter Is the
only thing which will savo you when you
fall to make a young lady of 40-odd sum
