See our new line of CLOTHING For Men, Boys, and Children THE GRANDEST WOMAN. The Chariots of God Came Down to Fetch Her to Heaven. When you want to gel your grandest idea of a queen, you do not think of Catherine of Russia, or of Anne of UiiRland, or Marie Theresa, of Germany, but when you want to get your grandest idea of a queen you think of the plain woman who sat opposite your fath er at the table, or walked with hiin arin in arm down life’s pathway; sometimes to the Thanksgiving banquet, sometimes to the grave, but always together—soothing your petty griefs, correcting your child ish waywardness, joining in your infantile sports, listening to your evening prayers, toiling with needle or at the spinning wheel and on cold nights wrapping you up snug and warm. And then at last on that day when she lay in the back room dying, and you saw her take those thin hands with which .she had toiled for you so long, and put them together in a dying prayer that commended you 10 the God she had taught you to trust—oh, she was the queen ! The chariots of God came down to fetch her, and as she went in all heaven rose up. You cannot think of her now without a rush of ten derness that stirs the deep founda tions of your soul, and you feel as much a child again as when you cried on her lap, and if you could bring her back again to speak just once more your name as tenderly as she used to speak it, you would be willing to throw yourself on the ground and kiss the old sod that covers her, crying; “Oh, Mother, Mother !" Ah, she was a queen ! ' —Hx. The man who is trying to reform the world generally keeps a dog that barks all night. When a girl gets so along in years she has to cut down her age the strongest believerin her figures is her mother. FORGIVEN. I used to hate Bill Hazleton, for once he done me wrong. And when I hate a man my hate is deep and wide and strong; We traded horses years ago; the one I got from him. It seemed was crippled up somehow in almost every limb; He lied like sixty, and I vowed some time I'd break his head. But—well, let bygones be bygones—his little boy is dead. I used to love the girl he got; I guess she loved me, too, But he went tellin’ her a lot of things that wasn’t true; I found it out long afterward, when I had ceased to care. Because I’d learned to love again—but still it wasn’t fair; And so I vowed to make him eat the words that he had said. But—well, let bygones be bygones—his little boy is dead. Last night 1 met him in the road; it was a lonely place; Lord, how I’d often wished that I could meet him face to face! I know that in a stand-up fight he’d have no chance at all; I’m six feet in my socks, and he is scrawny-like and small; He looked up aime when we met; I seen his eyes were red, And—well, let bygones be bygones-his little hoy is dead. I've found out what it is to love a child that is your own— To have a little chap around that worships you alone; I’ve found out what it means to watch a little face grow pale. And 1 know what it ineans when all the doctor’s efforts fail; Poor Bill ! I’m sorry now because of certain things I’ve said. For—well, let bygones be bygones—his little boy is dead. LIFE’S INN, The Wide World stands a-welcorning beside the sunny way, For page and squire and knight and dame to halt and ride away, And crimson sweet the roses flamed that lay upon my breast, When all the world was but an inn, and I a welcome guest. The knights were lion-hearted and their ladies lily fair. The silver armor glittered bright upon the roadway there. When each far distant turning held the promise of a guest. And all the world was but an inn, and I a welcome guest. No knock was there of Misery nor step of grimy Toil: But bold Adventure raised the latch, his palfrey heaped with spoil. When Romance flew to hold his rein and wait on his behest. When all the world was but an inn, and I a welcome guest.| And what care I that youth must fade, and love locks turn to gray ? Forsooth, at every inn there lies some reckoning to pay ! I’ve warmed my heart beside their fire, partaken of their best, When all the world was but an inn, and I a welcome guest. So why should 1 complain and curse in -spiteful accents shrill Because another draws his rein, my wanted place to fill? But ere Old Age the taper takes, to light me to my rest. APPRECIATE YOUR PARENTS. Do Not He Ashamed ol the Old Folks at Hume. If you asked a girl point blank "Are you ashamed of your par-; ents ?” she would answer indig-j nantly. "No, of course 1 am not!" ' and yet at the same lime if either : one of them inade a mistake in ' grammar or in what their modern ' daughter considered social eti- i quette, she would look conscious and embarrassed. A great iTiany young people are ashamed of what they call their parents’ "old-fashioned ideas. ’ It is not at all unusual to hear a girl exclaim impatiently, "Oh, mother, you don't understand, they don’t do those things now-a-days." A girl is ashamed because her father puts slippers on in the even ing and perhaps takes off his coat. It does not look very well to see him in his shirt sleeves, but you must remember that he has worked hard all his life and it has always been a rest to remove his shoes and coat when he got hoirie, and he is too old to change lifelong habits and it would be cruel to force him to. Remember, young man and young woman of today, that your parents have grown old and weary in working that you should have an easier life than they. You have had a better education, better clothes, a more luxurious home. You have no right to try and swing things around to suit your modern taste. It is their hoine. They earned it, and the fact that it cost you noth ing does not give you the right to I dictate. The daughter goes to school and I gets new-fangled ideas.

Amiability and optimism shine forth from every pane of the writings of Irving Bachel- ler,himself one of the most lov able of men, but there is a note of impatienee with the trend of the times in a recent inter view with him printed in a New York newspaper. And this is a point of view he pre sents with which one must sympathize. It is that the dis tractions of city life, ever on the increase, are destroying the reading habit. And the j reading habit destroyed; tho i public must necessarily descend ; into a condition of ignorance. I If it is not one thing it is an- ! other. The automobile, the j tlying machine, the motor boat, I the theatre, golf, and tho canl i party; everything but reading, j “Every one is on the move. I Our homes are almost deserted and we rarely see the lights of our reading lamps. Ministers complain of empty churches. Men who used to kneel at the altar may be seen on the road of a Sunday lying humbly on their backs in the sand, pray ing to a new god and trying to soften his heart with oil or open the gates of mercy with a mon key wrench." Every one is on the move who can find the way. On Sunday it is tho same. Church attendance is neglected. Men maintain their pews in church, but they are filled, if filled at all, by stnangers. After while, it is easy to fores'ee.they will consider the neglected pew a poor investment, and the church will have to get along without their aid. However, the case is not entirely hope' less. There will always be « few left to prefer the country as a place of residence, and these few may serve to keep our printing presses running and our authors reasonably bu sy.

Even when the work is quite distinct, for children who have naturally weak eyes the distance many times is so groat that the air waves coming between the poor, tired eyes and the board caase the lines to waver and flicker, and especially is this tho case when the light is poor and the ventillation is bad. Anything put on the board for children to see, whether old or young, should have large pro portions and broad, clear lines throughout, so no extra efforts will have to be made to discov er it? There is a great differ, ence in eyes; one child will readily see what another could not without the fatal strain. Ends Winter’s Troubles.
