We ran across the following in one of our exchanges. It goes to show that we are not the only ones who get items mixed tip. Every printing office that uses a linotype machine casts eachline in one solid piece of metal, and when a bunch of these lines are spilled it is eal]ed "pi." The following article shows what trouble ensues when "pi" is made and time is very short to catch the mails: The printer of a neighboring paper "pied" a galley of type which contain- ed the notice of an auction sale and on the same galley was the account of a beautiful wedding which had just taken place. They sorted out the lines as best they could and when the paper came out last Friday, it read some- thing like this: "M. Miram Smith, a soldier just re- cently returned from overseas was disposed of at auction at I p. m. last Sunday to Miss Carrie Huggins, on my farm one mile east of Fairplane in the presence of seventy-five guests including the following to-wit : 2 nmles, 12 head of cows, 6 sows Elder Nugin tied the nuptial knot, and ring ceremony was used. The home was tastefully decorated in roses and one spade, one sulky rake, one feed grinder, one set of double harness. Just before Mendelssohn's inspiring wedding march was rendered by one Jersey cow with calf, one cow to be fresh in August, one milk cow carry- ing a bunch of flowers in her hand and wearing a gown trimmed in light spring wagon, with tongue for wine colored silk hose, with shoes to at- tach to a self-dumping rake and one manure spreader, one two horse shoe of low pattern of .white kid. The many articles too numerous to mention as concluded during the prayer. The grindstone and shovels, rakes, are shown over dainty muslin lingerie. "The groom is well known and a district of Poland China hogs with pedigrees incomplete and attached to the bill of presents were nicely arrang- ed on a self dumping Deering twine binder and the flower girls were dress- ed in seven tons of bailed hay, 5 of straw."--Black Hill Press. "HAIR-PIN" MINDS SAY PSYCHO-ANALYSIS IS "SEXY" By Ernest Windle (Sunshine Psychology Service) "i love the great out-doors !" exclaimed a visitor standing on Cres- cent avenue and stretching his arms toward the morning sun. lle was a man about sixty. "But [ don't approve of the psycho-analytic stuff. There is too much sex in it !" "Is that so? Ever see the sun rise and set?" we asked. "Yes, and it's very pretty in California, too!" the man replied. "That's fine! There are only a few of the real old-tlmers who have seen the sun rise and set. Were you ever up in a balloon or an air- plane ?" "My feet are all right when they are on the ground," the man re- plied with a grin. He was contented, so why argue?His "feet" were safe! *** Should that "sex" remark pass unnoticed? For weeks we have been writing our "Sunshine Psychology Serv- ice." This is the first time we have ever mentioned "sex." Psycholo- gists tell us that some minds are almost "sex mad;" minds full of lust and passion; minds full of hate! Most "flappers" and "sheiks" are of the "sex mad" variety! They need psycho-analysis to enable them to distinguish the differ- ences in human conduct; the differences between their own conduct and that of a person with a controlled or balanced mind! Electricity produces light, heat and power. But it is also used to ascertain if men and women are speaking truth; and it is used for electrocuting criminals. Some "flappers" use it to curl their hair, and to remove superfluous growths. No one says "electricity is sexy," The sixty-year old man said: "I love the great out-doors." Notica, he didn't say anything about passion, lust, mental hunger, or imagina- tion ! Back up a minute! What is love? Twenty years ago we were given this dofinitlon: "The psychological phenomena which as soon as it enters the domain of pathology assumes a sentimental form." Where is there anything about "sex" in that definition? A human being can be "sentimental" toward money, books, educa- tion, music, fishing tackle, food, dogs, cats, mice, and the Oriental snake- charmer ofttimes shows more affection for his "pets" than some men and women show toward the opposite "sex" they married! There are men whom we know who have a fixed opinion that "sex affection" is largely the ambition to obtain "home comforts" and a good meal ticket by the "sex." Oh, there are minds that see SEX in a hairpin~yes, that kind of mlnds! A number of people wear gloves; but is there one in a thousand who has turned the right hand glove to make it fit the left hand, or vice versa, on a cold day? The mental processes of the mind fit all sides of human conduct. "Sexy" minds live in a hairpin atmosphere!. Years ago, mathematicians said: "1 see that the sun rises and sets." They figured it out with three dimensions~length, breadth and thick- ness. But does it? Look at the sun from a balloon or an airplane a few thousand feet above the earth. Then you will get a good laugh! Turn north or south and you don't see the sun at all. One of our "Sunshine Psychology Service" letters is headed: "Ex- periences that we seldom talk about!" That sounds very "sexy," does it not?Our study in psycho-analysls is---human love for the great out doors ! Renew your subscription to The Catalina, Islander, $2 per year.
