SOME ONE FIND^BEAUTY IN YOU.
Friendship and Love Have Eyes
When the Casual Pasiser-by Is
Our dear ones, iiowever they
may look to outsiders, are always |
beautiful to us if we think of their
looks at all. Our friends, too, ;
have long passed the stage when
we appraise their looks. Looks
may lead to love, but character re-'
tains it. We love our friends for'
what they are, but in each one we ,
And some superlative physical!
beauty. It may be the eyes; or 1
the mouth; or the hands. It may |
be the voice; the smile; the laugh, i
It may be the poise the carriage;!
but something we are sure to find. ‘
Have you ever seen in one list
the adjectives we are wont to use I
in speaking of a friend ? She may |
be pretty, attractive, beautiful, dis- i
tinguished, delightful, charming, j
fascinating, stunning, interesting, |
inspiring, superb, splendid, glo-1
rious. She may be sympathetic,,
helpful, restful, kindly, cordial, I
unselfish, loyal, tender. For all I
these and a hundred other reasons,
we choose our friends, and no two
will ever agree exactly in their es
timate of another. But with a
w’orld full of beauties of bodies and
character It would seem that every
body should have a host of friends
to admire and treasure if he has
an eye for beauty.
If one cares to make a good im
pression, to be found attractive and
beautiful, health is a first consider
ation. And the second plain, old
fashioned cleanliness. A healthy,
clean, person, neatly dressed, how
ever simply, is bound to be attrac
tive. But the wellsprings of beau
ty are in a woman’s heart.
Her body's beauty is but a poem j
Written by God about her soul.
Her gown is the binding for the
poem, which, if it serves its pur
pose truly, will suggest the senti
ment of the poem, and at the same
time will harmonize with the other
bindings on the shelves of life’s
library. —li. J. Kidgway, in The
Deliniator, for August.
Uo Out Into Air and Let Qod’s
Sunshine Down Upon Vour Bu!>y
Y ou are wearing out the vltul
foroes faster than there is any
need, and in this way substrao-
ting years from the stiin total
of your life. This rush ami
worry, day after day—this rest
less anxiety for something you
have not got is like pebble
stones in machinery—they grate
and grind the life out of you.
You have a great deal of use
less care—dump it. Pull in
the strings, compact your busi
ness; take time for thought of
better things. Go out into the
uir anil let Hod’s sun shine
down’upon your busy head.
Stop thinking of business and
profit; stop grumbling at ad
verse providences. Y’ou will
never see much better times in
this doomed world: and your
I most opportune season is now;
I your happiest day is today.
I Calmly do your duty, and let
Ood take care of His own
world. He is still alive and is
the King. Do not imagine that
things will (j;o to everlasting
smash when you disappear from
this mortal stage. Do not fan
cy that the curse of heaven, in
the shape of the vain task of
righting up a disjointed earth,
is imposed upon you. Cease to
fret and fume; oease to jump
and worry early and late. The
time is coming, but you can
never bring it: fiod can; can,
and will: take breath, sit down
and rest,and takea long breath.
Then go calmly to the task of
life, and do.—New Bern Daily
It was at a summer hotel, and
the baby, being warm and fretful,
cried. "Tut! Tut! We can’t
disturb our neighbors this way,”
the fond father said, taking the
child in his arms. “Let me sing
to him, if he won’t go to sleep.”
He sang, and straightway came a
knock at ihe door and these words:
“There's a sick lady next door,
and, if it's all the same to you,
would you mind letting the baby
cry instead of singing to it?”
A WOMAN’S REASON.
I have a reason now for all I do,
A reason that’s so sweet, so old, so new -
Well, if you were not quite so near to-day.
Or if you’d turn your eyes another way—
And while 1 let my hand a moment rest
With clinging touch yet light upon your breast,
1 might pretend that it was half a jest,
I think, perhaps—I’d tell >ou.
'Tis this—no, turn your eyes another way I
'Tis easier so when what one has to say
Is half pretense—yet somehow makes one’s heart
Stir in one’s side, with such a soft, quick start;
'Tis this—the Old World has been born again,
Born with a strange, sweet, bitter throe of pain,
The sad Old World I treated with disdain
Is new because—I love you !
I scarcely know my own face, in the glass,
It almost seems to mock me as I pass,
Once of its few poor beauties I was vain,
Now they can only rouse me to disdain,
1 should be twenty thou.sand times as fair,
The stars and sun should light my eyes and hair-
And yet sometitnes I think 1 only care
Because—because—I love you.
1 am so changeful and so full of mood,
Sometimes I would not—and sometimes I would;
I’m proud and humble, scornful, thoughtful light,
A hundred times between the morn and night.
1 cast you olf—I try to draw you near,
I hold you light—and 1 hold you dear.
And all the time—I know with joy, with fear
It is—because—1 love you.
And now—iny hand clings closer to your breast;
Bend your head lower, while I say the rest,
The greatest change of all is this—that I,
Who used to be so cold, so fierce, so shy.
In the sweet moment that I feel you near,
Forget to be ashamed and know no fear.
Forget that Life is sad and Death is drear.
Because—because—I love you !

Never was there a union of two

AN OBSISRVANT CHILD.
Little Adelaide was inclined to
be cowardly. Her father found
that sympathy only increased this
this unfortunate tendency, and de
cided to have a serious talk with
his litile daughter on the subject
of her foolish fears,
“Papa,” she ventured at the
close of the lecture, “when you
see a cow, are you afraid ?”
“Why, certainly not, Adelaide.
Why should I be?”
“Well, when you see a dog,
aren't you afraid of them ?”
“No, indeed !” with marked
emphasis on the “no.”
“Aren’t you afraid when it
“Why, no,” and he laughed at
the thought and added, “Oh, you
silly child !”
"Papa,” and Adelaide came
closer and looked into her parent’s
eye, “aren’t you lafraid of nothing
in the world but just mamma?”

A BAD TEMPER.
I The Bible Says That ‘‘He That
! Ruleth His Spirit is Better Than
j He That Taketh a City.’’
Starve it. Give it nothing to
Feed on. When something tempts
you to grow angry, do not yield to
temptation. It may for a min
ute or two be difficult to control
yourself to do nothing, to say noth
ing, and the rising temper will be
obliged to go down because it has
nothing to hold it up. The person
who can and does control tongue,
hand, heart, in case of great prov
ocations, is a hero. The world
may not own him or her as such,
but God does. The Bible says
that “he that ruleth his spirit is
better than he that taketh a city.”
What is gained by yielding to tem
per? For a minute there is a feel
ing oF relief; but soon comes a
scene oF sorrow and shame, with
a wish that the temper had been
controlled. Friends are separated
by a bad temper, trouble is caused
by it, and pain is given to others -
as to self. The pain, too, often I
lasts for days, even years—some- j
thing for life. An outburst of lem-1
per is like the burst of a steam :
boiler, it is impossible to tell before j
hand what will be the result. The j
evil may never be retnedied. Starve
your temper. It is not worth keep
ing alive. Starve it.
