in pure luxury. He said that

though the good time lasted only a

money 1 made no impression on
him Hut when 1 explained to
him how $2,500 invested at 6
per cent, and compounded annual
ly, would double in twelve years
he began to wake up. At thirty-
seven he would have $5,000, at
forty-nine $10,000, and at sixty-
one $20,000. The $20,000 at
sixty-one would be yielding him
$1,200 a year—a little more than
his present salary.
I told him that when he is sixty-
one and has that $20,000 maybe
somebody else will give him $2,-
500, and if so to go out and spend
it if he wants to. Money spent at
sixty-one by a man of some means
is not like tnoney spent at twenty-
five by a yotmg man of no means.
The man at sixty-one has conipar-
aiively little chance left for his
pile to grow. In fact, bf sixty-one
he is supposed lo have his pile.
Always when contemplating lux
uries consider how old you are
before buying. The price of lux
uries is much higher in early life
than later, ft is very high in
youth. If you \fant some com
forts and a few luxuries in old age
control yourself in the earlier
years. Get the foundation of
your capital laid early, so that it
will have time to build itself from
small beginnings Into a substantial
amount- -say at sixty.—American

“AT EVENTIME IT SHALL BE LIGHT.”
We are too tired to work—put up the tools;
Too tired for music—let the old violin rest*!
Once, for such idleness, we had been fools.
Now it is wisdom—now 'tis only best!
Give us a little spot—out there in th’ sun;
A corner, where the fire is warm and bright;
A bit of bread and broth-and we are done,
And ready for our journey in the night.
No, no, we do not miss the labor now;
’Tis strange, perhaps, but all the music’s naught;
We do not feel the snow that’s on the brow.
The trembling hand brings not a trembling thought.
We like the little quiet, sunny spot;
We chat and doze, we sometimes doze and dream;
The fireside’s—we never get too hot—
And very good our bread and lentils seem!
And—no—we do not dread the trip to come;
One will go first and see it—how it is,
'i'he'n wait near by, to call the other home,
And lead along the darker passages !
BUT WHAT 8AYE8T THOU?’’
We have saved the soul of the man that killed.
We have turned to shrive the thief;
We restored the pride of the man that lied;
And we gave him our belief;
But for her that fell we have fashioned hell
With a faith all stern and just—
It was so of old; and no man has told
What our Lord wrote in the dust.
We have sighed betimes of our brothers crimes
And have bade them be of cheer.
For the flesh is weak, and the soul grown meek
May yet read its title clear.
But we draw away from the one astray
As the truly righteous must,
She is cursed, indeed!—and we did not read
What our Lord wrote in the dust.
For the men who thieved, and who killed, and lied—
Who have slain the woman's soul -
We have worked, and prayed, and have seen them made
All clean and all pure and all whole.
But we drive her out with a righteous shout
In ourParisaic trust.
So the man goes free—but we did not see
What our Lord wrote in the dust.

OLD MAN AND AN OLD WOMAN.

I Service Is the Measure of Qreat-
! Christ has given us a measure
of greatness which eliminates con
flicts. When his disciples disputed
among themselves as to which
should be greatest in the kingdom
of heaven. He rebuked them and
said: “Let him who would be
chielest among you be the servant
ofoll." Service is the tneasure of
greatness; it always has been true,
it is true today, and it always will
be true, that he is greatest who does
the most of good. And yet, what
a revolution it will work in this old
world when this standard becomes
the standard of every life. Nearly
all of our controversies and com
bats arise from the fact that we are
trying to get something from each
other. Our enmities and animos
ities arise trom our eftbris to get
as much as possible out of the
world. Society will have taken
an immeasurable step toward peace
when it estimates a citizen by
his output rather than by his in
come and gives the crown of its
approval to the one who makes
the largest contribution to the wel
fare of all.—Extract trom W. J.

CURE FOR ALL MALADIES.
Right Living will Aid the Indi
vtdual, as Well as Put an End
to All National Disorders.
A correspondent asks Dr. Evans,
the noted hygienist, several ques
tions categorically, eight of them,
he adds, "Yes, right living." That
is the best remedy of all.
But, then, it not only cures bod
ily ills but moral and mental ones
as well, and not only individual
ills, but social and national distem
pers, too. Right living is the cure
for all maladies of body, commu
nity, race. In fact, there is no
other reliable cure. We may
get some temporary benefit
from this medicine and that, the
lasi remedy is right living, and this
includes not only right food, pure
air and water, proper exercise and
necessary sleep; but It includes
states of mind and heart, of dispo
sition, habit, and the kindly phases
Health is harmony with the
beautiful world, with its flowers,
its birds, its stars, its streams, its
trees, and everything that has a
language and a song. A morbid,
cross, quarrelsome disposition con
tributes to sickness in some form.
It will attack the liver, the kidneys,
the lungs, the nerves and put a
malady in them.—Ohio State Jour

The experience of Motherhood is a tty-
ingone to most women and marlcs dis
tinctly an epoch in their lives. Not one
woman in a hundred is prepared or un
derstands how to properly care for her
self. Of course nearly ever]^ woman
nowadays has medical treatment at such
times, but many approach the e.cperi-
ence with an organism unfitted for the
trial of strength, and when it is over
her system has received a shock from
which it ii hard to recover. Following
right upon this cornea the nervous strain
of earing for the child, and a distinct
change in the mother results.
There ia nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health or
beauty. The unexplainable thing is
that, with all the evidence of ahattered
nervea and broken healAi resulting from
an unprepared condition, and with am
ple time in which to prepare, women
will persist in going blindly to tte trial.
Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydia E. Pinkham’a Vegetable
Compound, a most valuable tonic and
Invi^rator of the femala organism.
