play through life a perfect part,
j Unnoticed and unknown.
To seek no rest in any heart;
Save ouly God's alone;
In little things to own no will,
To have no share in great,
To find the labor rea ly still
- And for the crown to wait.
Upon the brow to bear no trace
Of more than common care.
To writelno secret in the face
For men to read it there.
The daily cross to clasp and bless
With such familiar zeal, '
As hides from all that not the less
The daily weight you feel.
i In tolls that praise will never pay,
Tojee your life go past,
To meet in every coming day
- -Twin sister of the last;
' To hear of high heroic things,
And yield them reverence due,
But feel life's daily sufferings
; Are far more fit for you. .
To woo no secret, soft disguise
To which self-love bj prone,
Unnoticed by all other eyes,
- Unworthy in your own;
To yield with such a happy art,
That no one thinks you care.
And say to your poor bleeding heart,
If ow little you can bear! ''
Oht 'tis a path hard to choose,
' A struggle hard to share.
For human pride would still refuse
, The nameless trials there;
But since we know the gate is low
That leads to heavenly bliss,
What higher grace could God bestow
Than such a life as this!

"A lady friend" of mine has for several years
been troubled with bumps and pimples on her
fce and neck, for which she used various cos
metics in order to remove them and" beautify
anJ improve Iter complexion: but these" local
applications were only temporary and left her
alrin iii a worse condition.
I recommend an internal, preparation
known as Botanic irtood Balm which I have"
been using and selling about two years; slie

position while sleeping. ;
uThe women are more interesting
than the men. A belle in tlvse lotus-
feeding islands simply wears a more
finely wrought tapa, and uses uiont co
coannt oil.ou her hairs and person.
Many of the missionaries and foreign
ers marry the native women. Then
they permit their beautiful tawny uair
to grow long and at once recognize
their important station in life. iiut
the f reizners do not marry anjr but
the high c tste natives of the village.
The women are proud and are careful
to see that there is no mistake about
the formality of the marriage ceremo
ny. The chiefs of the villages are-not
polygamous, iut the? have an arbitrary
.rav of rpturninir their wives to their
parents. A chief will take a wife just
to get rich presents from her family.
For da?a there will be festivities in his
village in honor of the nuptials, and
presents from the brides family will be
sent; in and jealouuy taken possession
of bv t ie chief. In several months or
at year he sends his wife back to her
parents and then loo. s around tor
another rich heiress. Many of the
leading chiefs have !een Christianized
and take a wife for life. A chiefs
daughter is called a 'tuiipo,' or ni.iid of
the village, am1, every person in the
village has to honor her. Site occupies
a higher place than the governor's
daughter in a civilized country, and
when she marries the village gains
so tii . tny p resents. The ra in who
courts the tanpo has to have the opu
lence to give enough presents-to satisfy
he village and the chief. S iine of
thesi tanpo maidens have had remark
able careers, and one, a fa nous beauty
named Faapeo, the daughter of a noted
chief, Assi, ha- gained a wide ruputa
tion. FaafMio was one of the most ac
complished of S un aii high ea-te vo
nun and was a great favorite, eje
cially with the foreign population.
She often danced in public and was
courted and invited to m tny homes.
Her case is a sad oner though, and 1 d
not like to repeat it. One day Faapeo
was invited to go aboard the Adams,
a United States man-of-war at Samoa,
and give a dance. Ten days after she
gave the dance the Geruums arrested
her father, the chief Asj, and exiled
him to Marshall Island, two thousand
miles from S;imoa. It was like sign
ing his death warrant to exile him.
He was exiled because his daughter
danced on an American ve-sel. raa-
peo was threated before she- went
aboard to givthe dance, and the s ali
sequent action' of the Germans shows
what bitter revenge they took. Her
name during the time of the war in
Samoa was Iknown by everybody.
During battles that were fought she
climbed trees,! and with wonderful mil
itary sagacity assisted her father to
direct the fights. She is now married,
but pines to see her dear old father
back from a cruel exile."

Flaying cards are required to bo cut
with the sides quite parallel to each
other, because if a pack be trimmed by
the machine slightly wider at one end
than the other, and they become turned
"end for end" in dealing, the excess in
width of some cards over others at the
end of the pack will be double ihe vari
ation in any one card, which! would
facilitate cheating, a very minute vari
ation being perceptible. The men who
test these cards for this, make caliper
of their finger and thumb and by paw
ing them along from one to the other,
detect a difference in width between
the two ends which ft is difficult to
measure by any other means. 1
