Any virtue carried too far be comes a vice. Industry is a virtue, but the woman who is too in- (luHtriouii to rest at the proper time carries it ton far and ruins her health. ■Charity hecomeg a vice when it tlirowB a veil over wicked ness and protects an evil that should bo punished for the sake of the innocent. The Greeks were rijfht when they said that the best rule to live by is “Do- injf nothiuff too much.” Moderation in all things, is the wise woman’s law of life. She will do nothing too much, aud especially will she guard against the sin of unselfishness for in the home there is nothing that works more subtly and more surely for the destruction of virtue in the rest of the liuusehold than extreme unsel- fislint-ss on the part of the moth er. As the children grow up, in stead of becoming mother’s helpers, they are continually waited on, growing daily more selfish and helpless and rude un der such treatment. The boys come in, throw a cap here, a jacket there,leave muddy tracks all about; the unselfish mother follows after without a murmur wiping up aud picking up. The girls are no better. The moth er makes herself such an unsel fish drudge that it seemed quite right and natural. They loll in the easy cliiiirs while mother works and rests her weary limbs on a straight back chair. They let her do all the work and grumble when callod upon for the slightest help. The boys let her get up first in the morn ing, bring her own wood and build the fire. As they grow older they feel no respect for the household lnidge, and even their affec tion is tinged with a patroniz ing pity. If any sacritice must he made it is always, the moth er must be sacrificed. She stays at home wliile the others go about. She wears the shabby dress and sha^vI whilethe oth ers enjoy the new fresh clothes. She sleeps on the hard bed in the shabby back room, and the grown up daughters have the best front room. She keeps the tough piece of meat tor her own plate, and serves all the choicest portions to the others. She saves and pinches and la bors 80 the boys can go to col lege and the girls to a stylish school; anil then when they come home with their fine edu cations (as they think) they se cretly despise and are ashamed of the worn, wrinkled, shabbi ly-broken woman v.'hom they call mother. THOSE WHO MOURN. OMetnory! dearest friend of those who mourn, Grant me who ask it this exceed ing grace— Me, who without thee would be too forlorn— Still hold thy mirror-clear, with out a blur— Through all eternity before my face.

When Emory, the society repor ter, telephoned that he was sick, it so happened that all of the other reporters were busy. The editor turned to the circus press agent, who had dropped in, and asked him if he thought he could write up a wedding. “Sure," said the agent. The following is what he turned in; “The wedding of Miss Million and Count Air took place at the Fifth Avenue Church last night. Long before the Grand Entry the Monstrous, Absolutely Water-proof structure was crowded to the doors. After the Grand Prome nade Concert, there entered the HE HAS MADE A SUCCESS. He has made a success of this life if a few Pause to weep at his bier when his journey is through; If the smile on his face, and the words that he spake Will be missed when he’s gone, and if one heart shall ache Because he is not here. Yes, if only one mourn. The world is better for his being born. He has made a success of this life if the end Finds him tenderly borne to the grave by a friend; If but one man shall say : “He was gentle and true. His voice was a voice that I oft listened to. I shall miss him," and weeping, shall turn from his door, He has made a success, for no man can do more. Success, when you sum it all up, isn’t gold, Nor is it in doing some deed that is bold; For the money we make and the houses we build, Mean nothing the moment our voice has been stilled; But he has succeeded who, when he is gone. In the heart of another is still living on. INDIRECTION. Fair are the flowers and the children, but their subtle suggestion is fairer; Rare is the rose burst of dawn, but the secret tha( clasps it is rarer. Sweet the exultance of song, but the strain that precedes it is sweeter, And never was a poem yet writ, but the meaning outmasiered the metre. Never a daisy that grows, but a mystery guideth the growing; Never a river that flows, but a majosty sceptres the flowing; Never Shakespeare that soared, but a stronger than he did enfold him, Never a prophet foretells, but a mightier seer hath foretold him. Back of the canvas that throbs the painter is hinted and hidden; Into the statue that breathes, the soul of the sculptor is bidden; Under the joy that is felt lie the infinite issues of feeling; Crowning the glory revealed is the glory that) crowns the revealing. Great are the symbols of being, but that which is symboled is greater; Vast the created and beheld, but vaster the inward creator; Back of the sounds broods the silence, back of the gift stands the giving; Back of the hand that receives, thrill the sensitive nerves of receiving. Space is as nothing to spirit, the deed is outdone by the doing; The heart of the wooer is warm, but the warmer the heart of the wooing; And up from the pits when these shiver and up from the heights where those shine, Twin voices and shadows swim starward, And the essence of life is divine. —Richard Reaif. INDEPENDENT IN REALITY. Now Qirls, Consider This Impor tant Fact. Women may train their daughters in all the ways they imagine to be pleasing to men; they may teach them to wrig gle and squirm and reef in their waist and roll their eyes and lisp out insipid nothings between carmine stained lips, and yet men will desert them to flock about the girl who is fully and completely indepen dent of them, and who cares, very little whether they fall in love with her or not. It is nat ural for men to want what they cennot get too easily, and wo men cheapen themselves who thus “stoop to conquer.’’ But no girl can affect independence. She must be independent in reality. And in order to be so if she has no fortune in her own right she must have an occupa tion that renders her self-sus taining. Now, girls, consider this fact. The day of useful ness is nearly past. Young men are not going to gobble you up for wives on the strength of any looks or manners you may possess. Some of them are fools enough to do it, but they cannot afford it. The pressure of the line is inexora ble. Use, use, use the constant demand. The tneanest of all mean men is the one who makes capital out ot a calamity. Anyway, it isn’t a matter of re cord that an old hen originated the shell game. SEN. FRYE’S FISHING LUCK. Senator Frye is an enthusias tic fisherman. He was once the guest of a family who ar ranged for him and other visi tors in Eastport, Maine, a pic nic at a lake a few miles dis tant. The head of the family noticing that his brother, who had charge of the vehicle, had placed a supply of fishing para- phernalia in one of the wagons, asked why he had done so. “They’re for Frye,” was the reply. “But, man alive! There are no llsh in that lake,’’ the older exclaimed. “VVell,Prye doesn’t know it.” Frye didn’t. On arriving at the lake he took the fishing tackle and trudged ofl to return some hours later very warm and much bitten by mosqut. toes. “Get any bites, Frye?” he was asked. “Get any bites!” was the half indignant reply. “Look at my facel” Saved Prom The Grave. “I had about given up hope, after nearly four years of sutfering front a se vere lung trouble,” writes Mrs. M L. Dix, of Clarksville, Tenn. “Often the pain in my chest i^ould be almost un bearable and I could not do any work, but Dr. King’s New Discovery has made me feel like a new peraon. Its the best medicine made forthethroatand lungs. Obstinate coughs, stubborn colds, hay lever, la grippe, asthma, croup, bron chitis and hemorrhages, hoarseness and whooping cough, yield quickly to this wondetlbl medicine. Try it. 60c. andfl.

A Magnificent and Opulent scene of Glitter, Splendor,blending the wonders of the Orient with the Marvels of the Occident. A Kale- idoiscopic and Dioramic Presenta tion, Eclipsing in Magnitude and Surpassing in Barbaric Splendor, all previous efforts. A moving Panorama of Grandeur, a Superb Eye Feast of Magnicence, teeming with life and color, exhibited in a scries of Pageantry Displays and Brilliant Tableaux, the Pomp and Splendid Regalia of the East. The Procession moved in Mastodonic, Majestic, Massive and Magnificent March under the Irridescent Sheen of a Thousand Glimmering Lights, the whole forming a Sumptuous, Satisfying and Surprising Exhibi tion, so Overwhelmingly Superior to all previous efforts that no lan guage in its praise is extravagant, and it is simply impossible of ver bal delineation. Never before has there been such a Prodigal Plenti- tude of Princely Pageantry. “Into this enchanted dreamland there came Handsome Knights, dressed in Gorgeous Manner of the Imperial Claw Hammer, Beau tiful women in Sublime Creations, Beautiful, Impossible women, with waists three degrees below their swan-like necks, with silken gar ments falling eight inches under the toes in front and four yards be hind the heels, decorated with one thousand yards—one thousand—of lace and ribbon. Silken hair drawn gracefully back in beautiful folds over a bale of hay and held togeth er with flowers, fly-net and fuzz. Thus they entered a wonderful presentation of Strange, Odd and Remarkable shapes, whose dupli cates are not on earth, represent ing the Whims and Fancies of the designers in their most Eccentric moods. The Knights and Ladies, flower girls. Ladies-in-waiting, and other members of the Superb Com pany formed a line on each side of the Altar. The Minister poised himself gracefully in the center. "Now came the time when all hearts ceased to beat. The Spec tators see the two Principal Per formers appear at the head of the Long, Steep, Inclined aisles. The Music plays, The Signal is given. They are olf, and down that steep incline they come, a most superb exhibition of Unparalleled, Dan gerous and Death-defying Nerve. Timed to the Second, they meet at the Altar, the Minister says a few words, and then the hero. Laughing Death to Scorn, while Diabolical Audacity sits upon his brow, lets his hand, containing nothing but a band of Pure Gold make one stupendous awful flight across the wide chasm and alights safely within the wailing hand up on the other side, the ring fits upon the Fair Girl’s Unger, and the act so fraught with Awful Consequence as to Appall all imitators is over. The Music grows louder, the spec tators sigh with relief, and the greatest spectacle of Modern Times is only a memory.”—judge. Some rise by sin, and some by virtue.

UNAnRACTIVE HOMES. Make Your Homes Attractive and Bright Bring In the Violin or the Picture. Winter has especial tempta tions in the fact that many homes are peculiarly unattrac tive at this season. In the sum mer months the young man can sit out on the steps, or he can have a bouquet in the vase on the mantel, or the evenings being so short, soon after gas light he wants to retire any how. But there are many par ents who do not understand how to make the long winter evenings attractive to their children. It is amazing to us that so many old people do not understand young people. To hear some of these parents talk you would think they had nev er themselves been young and had been born with spectacles on. Oh,it is dolorous for young people to sit in the house from 7 to 11 o’clock at night and to hear parents groan about their ailments and the nothingness of this world. The nothingness of this world? How dare you talk such blasphemy? It took God six days to make this world, and he allowed 6,000 years to hang upon his holy heart, and this world has shone on you and blessed you and ca ressed you for these fifty or seventy years, and yet you dare talk about the nothingness of this world! Why, it is a mag nificent world ! Wo do not be lieve in the whole universe there is a world equal to it ex cept heaven. You cannot ex pect your children to stay in the house these long winter evenings to hear you denounce this star lighted, sun warmed shower baptized, flower strewn angel watched, God inhabited planet. Oh, make your home bright! Bring in the violin or the pic ture. It does lot require a great salary or a big house, or chased silver, or gorgeous up holstery to make a happy home. AH that is watched is father’s heart, a mother’s heart, in sym pathy with young folks. CHILDREN TEETHINQ Mhm.
