* Waste
It has been said that the Americans
~ are the most extravagant people on
the fact of the earth. Does this ap-
ply to us? We sometimes forget that
we can waste time and energy as. well
ag money and material. Time is one
of the most valuable assets we have
and most of us, rich and poor alike,
are very wasteful of this priceless
gift. How many hours do we waste
in one day? Think of the months and
years this amounts to in a lifetime!
What could we not do during this
time, had we not wasted it? Let us
think fow, and let every hour that
we live find us better prepared.
The banking percentage of Xing-
~ ston township high school was 94 per
eént. last week. + The percentages
were as folows:
Seniors, 100 per cent.
Juniors, 100 per cent.
Sophomores, 100 per cent.
‘Freshmen, 77 per cent.
Rev. Ruff in Chapel
‘We were delighted to see the Rev.
G. Elston Ruff, pastor of Shavertown
° Laitheran Church, in chapel one morn-
ing. We were also pleased when he
consented to speak to us.
His topic was “The Change Brought
About by Machinery.” Do you under-
mand this change from our grand-
father’s time to our own? It is the
greatest in all times, this migration
from the farm fo the factory.
Its result ig the “stamp of the
machine.” This is shown by a play
in New York called “Dynamo.” He
then told us of the plot. This man
“worshipped the dynamo which he
tended and which finally killed him.
| Will the people of the world come to
this same horrible fate.
The World War was caused by this
“stamp of the machine,” according to
Rev. Ruff. In conclusion, he said
that the young people should try to
_+.rid themselves of this “stamp.”

A Scout is cheerful. As the Scout
law intimates, he must never go about
with a sulky air. He must always be
bright and smiling and as the humorist
says: “Must always see the dough-
Why don’t you laugh and make us
all laugh, too,
And keep us mortals all from getting

and a cheery word spreads like sun-
A laugh will always win,
If you can’t laugh, just grin.
Go on! Let's all join im!
Why don’t you laugh?
Just picture in your own mind what
life would be and actually mean with- |
out cheerfulness. You canot build life
without cheerfulness, for the glow of
cheerfulness leads on to the goal
which we all strive to win.
Benjamin Franklin said:
duce happiness.” One’s personal en-
joyment is a very small thing, but
one’s personal usefulness is a very im-
portant thing. Those only are happy
who have their minds fixed upon
some object other and higher than
their own happiness. A boy once
said to his mother: “I couldn’t make
sister happy nohow. I could fix it
but I made myself happy trying to
make her happy.” Here is a case
where money never made a man
There was once a king who had a
son who he loved with his whole
heart, so he gave him everything his
heart desired. Still the young prince
was unhappy and wore a frown where-
ever he went, always wishing for
something he did not have. By and:
by a magician came to the court and
seing the frown said to the king: “I
can make your boy happy and turn
his frown into a smile but you must
pay me a very large price for the se-
cret.” “All right,” said the king.
“Whatever you ask, I will do.” oS
the musician took the boy into a pri-
vate room and with white liquid wrote
something on a piece of paper, then
he gave the boy a candle and told him
to warm the paper and read what was
written. The prince did as he was
told. The white letters turned into
letters of blue, and he read these
words: “Do kindness to some one
every day.” The prince followed the
magician’s advice and became the
happiest boy in all the king's realm.
Cheer up and smile whenever you can.
To be a good Scout one must re-
main cheerful under every circum-
stance, bearing fortune and misfortune
with a smile.

The past deer season was rather
slim in Beaumont, as only Emory
Straley and Irvin Denman were fortu-
nate enough to bag buks. Augustus
Denman, however, bagged one buck
horn. Kenneth Turner of Noxen, we
understand, shot a buck with only one
horn and a bullet hole in the ear. We
think it the same buck that Gus
pierced, but as Gus’ didn’t install an
earring after the operation, we can-
not be sure.
Mrs. Grace Belles and son William

They are doing fine. Miss June Belles
is to have her tonsils removed soon.

uaughter’s funeral, is spending the
whristmas holidays with her daughter,
Mrs. Grace Belles.
Some one bagged a doe near Beau-
mont and our game warden, George
Hunt, took charge of it. The autopsy
revealed the cause of death but not
the culprit. The usual custom of send-
ing such game to some hospital or
other beneficiary was not adopted. Mr.
Hunt gave some of local citizens an
opportunity to appreciate the venison.
Herman Derby was slightly indisposed
for wu few days. We trust the venison
was not the cause of his ailment.
Charles Bickman is thinking about
putting a porch on his house. Go
