Richard E. Huss, Lancaster, PA 17602, tells me “The Printer’s Composition Matrix” is ready – but I have no other information.

A divinity student named Tweedle
Refused to accept his degree;
He didn’t object to the “Tweedle,”
But hated the “Tweedle, D.D.”

Fool Column

Ability is a poor man’s wealth.

Too low they build who build beneath the stars.

He that has no cross will have no crown.

Those who school others, oft should school themselves.

Live with wolves and you will learn to howl.

Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.

Have you fifty friends? – it is not enough. – Have you one enemy? – it is too much.

The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.

Let us respect gray hairs, especially our own.

Nothing is so good as it seems beforehand.

They also serve who only stand and cheer.

Men give away nothing so liberally as their advice.

The acts of this life are the destiny of the next.

There is no fool like an old fool.

* * * *

Oh Lord, Thou knowest how I live;
All I’ve done amiss, forgive.
All of good I’ve tried to do.
Strengthen, Bless and carry through,
While in Thee, I fall asleep.
