FOR L ^ D lty Looking baek at tho far oil happy days of peace, it scorns almost incredible that we ever worried at all. Aud yet we d id , as, alas! we have better reason to do to-day. It goes without haying that Ihc worryful ncrson is always quite sure she cannot help herself; and, indeed, it doe* require constant effort and much will-power to break oneself of worrying when worrying has become a confirmed habit. Once convince oneself, liowever, ot the undoubted truth that worrying over a possible trouble never yet averted it. and of the equal truth that the eunny- liaturcd. optimistic folk attract the good things of life, besides brightening the world for all those who come in contact with the in. Once resolutely force the mind into the * * everything in for the best in the beet of all possible worlds M mood, and worry will speedily eome to be a’ bugbear of the past.

I they bind o u r brave ts n o th in g All over the world people are wishing one another “ A happy Easter/’ even though all over the world a terrible war is raging. But it id jiwi because of this that, more than ever, we like to say the beautiful words; us together ivith fellow-Chri -tian> else could. Thev lliug the note of I * triumph. of life from death across tlie battlefield, even as the flowers proclaim the same glorious truth when they spring from the dark earth. It i* the season cf resur­ rection and of hope. The Lord of Life has risen, and It sounds horrid, doesn’t it? And the thing is quite as horrid as it sounds. Nevertheless, there is this to be said for the husband-hunter: It is natural that a girl without a lover should wish that one may soon come along to woo. She is a strange girl indeed, and not likely to be a favourite with either sex. who honestly has no wish ever to marry. All nice girls hope to own a homo and husband some day, but how­ ever deep the desire, they hide it in their inmost souls, so far as any particular man is concerned*- until he has shown h iv * wishes and inten­ tions unmistakably. 4 To throw herself at a man's head is about the most foolish method of securing a husband that any girl could adopt. It is true that the average man is lets keen-eyed than women are. If l:e is a nice man, aud therefor? prone to ree girls through M ie halo of the love he has for his mother, he is an easy victim to any womanly guile. But the nicest man is not Wiw/. and when a girl.takes to husband-hunting, she can make up her mind to this — every man she knows is fully awake to the fact, and is judging her accordingly. <5X v J j f J » iE * ~ ; & I L a w . with ITim creation rises also. There is no death, merely another and a fuller life. And, to show this clearly* Nature decks herself in new life — 1he life of bird and beast and flower and sheds over all her children the feeling of love and happiness. Now, as never l>efore. we can rejoice in Easter and wish our beloved ones €t A happy Easter." It is the greeting that binds all the Allioi in one at. this time, and the eacred thought that help-* our brave brothers to do and dare so splendidly. There is no death ; life has triumphed over death and loss. Som ebody’s 1 1 Boy 1 1 in the Royal Navy. {Ste verm on poo* 512 ) WATCH T H I8 PAQE,—Any week you m ay see YOUR boy*s face !

H II i « * sisters arp so often a stumbling-block in the path of a newlv engaged girl’ s , - o o o happiness. Everyone e4se usually seems pleased and cordial, but be­ hind the polite speeches of his sisters the fiancee often feels a very chilly criticism. They are determined to make her know that tiny are not legarding her with the eyes of their besotted brother, aud generally they succeed admir­ ably in making that brother’s little sweetheart miserably con-cions that in the it pre­ sence the is at her very worst. Now, it is well worth while to win the liking and approval of even an “ in-law/' *o a wise damsel will put pride in her pocket and lay siege to their hearts.
