Women md Love: By Lilian Bell. v ONDER often' arises ia me If men know that so ter women that -we might almost say no woman who is perfectly happy ever seeks a career? No happily married or rightly i loved woman ever: seeks a career. The desire for a career s for a woman, is an acknowledgment of heart failure. I I This is practically because We have so few homes in Amer ica. We have private hotels -where each family eats and sleeps, but -where family life and smooth housekeeping are unknown. ,) u i were wuimm sccixuig a career, x would, go to some tof my rich and prosperous friends and offer-to turn the house into a home. 1 have only recently learned; of the term "working housekeeper." I like it. sThere should be more of them. It is distinctly the career-for an unmarried rwoman Tvho loves llove and home and children, and, above all, housekeeping, housekeeping is the most fascinating occupation in the world. Something new Is always appearing in somebody's house which wouldfgo so well in yours! The loneliness of the unloved does not mean thatva woman is lonely because Bhe is not loved by anybody. Mdst women are loved by the wrong some bodies. Nor does jt mean that women are lonely because they are unloved fcy their own families, or Heaven forgive me for betraying so many woman's secrets .'unloved by their own husbands who think they are loving devotedly. But the most of women's loneliness consists in being loved uncomprehendingly t-uncomprehensiveiy Harper's Bazar. iw - k Mission of By Grpver Cleveland. RACTICAI business activity can be mingled with enlighten ment and social betterment, and commercial organizations ha;ve already woven them together. They are estopped from disclaiming their obligation to continue the work.' It rests wth them not only to enlarge and strengthen by increased en terprise the fabric they have thus produced but to. make it brighter and: more beautiful by adding to it a larger infusion of that which touches the welfare of mankind in every moral and social phase and condition. , It may justly be said that commerce, by what it has already done, by, what lies yet in its path undone, and by what it has been able to do, has created if or itself a mission which cannot be fulfilled by increased effort directed solely to gaining riipre business advantages. This mission does not exact an abatement of commercial struggle and competition; but it so far fixes their limit as to enjoin jthat with such struggle and competition there shall also be willing co-operition inan endeavor to promote "every beneficial purpose rwhieh commerce can "draw within its sphere. Commercialism! is a word we often hear In these days when ah attempt Is juade to describe certain political and economic phases of our national; ten dencies, which arelgreatly lamented by good people who are solicitous for our country's welfare, j It has always seemed to me that the meaning attached o this word lacks Tdefiniteness. If it is used to define a desire to accumulate ivealth not only f ojr the gratification of individual wishes, but in full recogni tion of the duties and obligations to others which the possession of wealth im poses, we need not complain of such use. With our conception of what commerce is and ought to be, we have, how ever, cause of complaint when the word "commercialism" is used as descriptive of sordid money getting. .- v - ,. The Teacher's- - i i By O. S. Mar den. NET a small part of a true teacher's recompense goes to him in bis check or monthly payment for services. There is an impalpable reward for a" successful instructor with which the c6arse dollar cannot compare. j The consciousness that he has given his pupil something tnat will make his home brighter, his ideals finer, his life hap pier, brings with it an uplift of heart which is of more value to him than many times the amount of his salary. The realiza tion that the pupil feels that something of worth has touched lira, that his ambition has been aroused is payment, indeed. What is money, compared with the consciousness that you have opened a little wider the door of some narrow life, that you have let in the life of oppor tunity, hare shown the boy or girl that there is something in existence worth Striving for? Wht is salary compared with the thought that you have made the dull boy feel, perhaps f or the first time, that there is possible success for hjm, that he is not ifiuite the dunce he has been taught to believe himself? What Is financial reward pitted againstthe glow of hope that has been kindled in the breast of the youth who never before was encouraged to do his best? Is there anything more precious in this world than to gain the confidence love and friendship of the boys and girls under your care, who pour out their secrets to you, and tell you freely of their hopes and ambitions? As a rale, a teacher's salary is pitifully mean and small when compared with the magnitude of the task entrusted to him the shaping of the destinies of thousands of young lives-and It is greatly to the honor of the teaching body that so many of its members give of their very best to their pupils without any thought of the wholly inadequate pecuniary compensation they receive. A conscientious, successful teacher performs for his pupils and his country ft eervice whose value can never be measured by dollars and cents. Success. I-".--. ' . ; J& J& Harvests and High Finance. BX Alexander D. Noyes. t 1 "' . ' jm j t . , Xl SESaaffisa N the progress of contemporary nnance xne midsummer momus p each successive year are a period of singular interest, it iskhen that there come into public view the forces over which neither human foresight nor human ingenuity can exercise the least control, and yet which arefundameatal in their in fluence on National prosperity. Of all the wealth produced each year, in the modern as in the ancient world, the greater part-js that which grows out of the ground; and this is Precisely the portion of the world's atmual production which is wholly subject "to the caprices of nature. It needs but a moment's consid eration to see how vitally the financial fortunes of a people depend on this Question of the crpps. Complete and general harvest: failure, in a highly de veloped industrial State, means, first, the loss of a year's income to the farm community. Next; and as a natural consequence, it means the curtailment of ,teat community's buying power, and hence a large reduction in the purfhase W manufactured goods. But this must also, in the third place, involve sudden disappearance of demand for transportation, both from and to, the farm com munities. If there is no wheat to send to market, one-fourth of the business f the grain-carrying railway disappears; if there is no demand for city; mer chandise on the farms, freight traffic in the opposite direction will be deci mated. . ' ; . : -f But the railway which falls to earn its dividend "will not in such d case fce the only sufferer. Loss of expected income by the farmer, and by the humerous trades which thrive with his prosperity; means diminished savings, 'decreased resources in the banks, and hence reduction of capital available for use in financial enterprise It is a well-known'f act that the enormous borrow ing operations in our Eastern markets, through -which the huge financial schemes of the last three years have neencarried out, " were made possible by tte placing of Western bank credits at the disposal of Wall street. These credits were chiefly the net result of 'profitable crops. r Even thifi does not tell all the, tary. Shortage in, crops would be followed, seces'saxilyy by falling exports,- an falling exports foreshadow reduced com tnand over f oreign capital, With all vthe extraordinary recent progress of the united States lnf her exportation ; of ' manufactured goods "and of minis and forest products, it still remains true that our agricultural shipments make up sixty.three per, cent, of our annual export trade. In other words, harvest fail ure jeopardizes simtiltaheously .the fortunes of the railways and banks, and also the country's foreign credit. .Alike in 1901 and1002, immense sums of capital were; borrowed in Europe, during the spring, for use In the costly financial operations of the period. With-abundant crops and -consequent abundant exports; our own banks can take up such foreign loans in the autumn .And carry the. load themselves. Bnt if-crops are short and the foreign cred itor calls for settlement, the American banks must pay in gold, depleting their wa reserves at; a moment when large reserves are needed. . This is what happened a year ago.; Human sagacity is absolutely unable to predict the .nation. It can only wait- to see what the farm weather of a summer isoa brings to pass, and adapt itself, j Commerce, true Recompense as it , best may, to the resultant condj- Children. Come to me, O ye children! -. For I fear you at your play, And the questions that perplexed Sie Have vanished quite away. Ye open the eastern windows, That look toward the sun. Where thoughts are singing Bwallows, And the brooks of morning I run. In your hearts are the birda and the sunshine, .. In your thoughts the brooklets flow; But in mine is the wind of autumn And the first fall of the snow. Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind UB Worse than the dark before.- What the leaves are to the forest, With light and air for food, Ere their sweet and tender juices Have been, hardened into wood That to the world are children! ThroHgh them it feels the glow Of a brighter and sunnier climate THan reaches the trunks below. - Come to. me, O ye children! And whisper in my ear What the birds and the winds are sing- ing In your sunny atmosphere For what are all our contrivingSi And the wisdom of our books. When compared with your caressed And the gladness of your looks? Ye are better than all the ballads That ever were sung or said; For ye are living poems, And all the rest are dead. .Henry Wadsworth Loiigfellow. Our Warfare and Our Duty. We hold that all drinking of intoxi cants is perilous and wrong, and that its influence upon others is very likely to be fatal to the drinker himself. Therefore, on principles of Scripture and common sense, we war upon all use of intoxicating beverages know ing that that deceitful thing or mock er makes a.Bian believe he takes it moderately when he is on the high road to ruin; We plant oilf selves, therefore, on the immutable rock of total abstinence and oppose the drink ing of any intoxicants. I would have the church stand out as-clear against the sin of the bottle and the curse of the dram shop as it stands to-day against infidelity or su perStltion or crime of any kind. Why not? Is not drink the curse of curse3? Why should the church ignore it? Does it not lay its deadly hands on our boys and girls, husbands and wives, homes and hearts? How dare we, as Christians, turn a deaf ear to it and wrap the mantle of our respectability ftboiit us, and pass on the other side while the victims of this curse lie bleeding on every side? God forbid! I would have every pulpit speak with no uncertain sound. We want our ministers to give us a clear example wherever they go among the congregation, as well as to preach total abstinence from the pulpit. A minister cannot get a congregation higher commonly than his pulpit. Whenever the pulpit speaks distinctly for total abstinence, God honors such a ministry. He blessed them richly in the times gone by. He blesses' them noAv and will evermore. And these reformed men my heart and my prayers are with them. I see them coming up and out of the depth of misery, one after another, scarred and bruised and rough, many of them almost ruined. God's people are ready to put the arm of faith and prayer around them and welcome them, and these men feel, as long as the Divine Arm steadies their weak arms .and the loving Jesus sustains their tempted hearts, they will stand. But, as Gough said, "I would give that right hand if I had never touched it" I do not want my boy to go through life with his arm in a sling, maimed and mangled; I want that boy's arm clear and sound. I want that boy saved, as your boy has got to be, by prevention. One ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure. I honor the movement . to save the drunkards. We have saved hundreds and thousands. The country is alive with great temperance meetings, and glorious results are accomplished by them. Let me say that, after all, it is not only the saving of drunkards we aim at, but it is the mighty work of prevention in keeping back thou sands that would be tempted. T. L. Cuyier, D. D. Abstinence and Health. A contributor to the London Daily News, replying to another writer who bad" asserted that abstience from in toxicating drinks was injurious to health in many ways and a promoter of gluttony, present some interesting statistics from the report of the Sons of Temperance Friendly society (Lon don district), covering the five-year period ending in December, 1900. This is a life and health insurance society which has been in existence for thirty five years. In the period covered it had 10,654 members, all teetotalers. The age of. the members varies from 16 ,to.;85 years. The mortality rate over all these ages was less than-five In 1,000, which is lower than the"gov ernment return of 1897 for unoccupied. A Rapid Increase. Toledo, O., Special. Mrs. Frances Spyhalski, aged 2.9, Monday gave hirth to quadruplets, two girls and two boys, ranging in weight from three to, six pounds. Six years ago the woman gave birth to twins and about a year later to triplets. All of these died. There is another child nine and a half months old. The boys have been named Sam uel Jones, and Theodore Roosevelt. Many were killed in;a mine horror in Russia. - - males of 20 years of age in London, that being 5.0? in the; , thousand; The "expectancy" Of deaths fbr the five" years was 387, the actual number was 220. This favorable happening, if not the result of total abstinence, certain ly tends to show that the risk of death is not increased thereby; , Sb, aisdi in respect Of sickness; The expectancy was-49,052 weeks, while the actual experience was but 39,600 weeks. The society has a surplus of more than $100,000, out of which members are now relieved from all further pay ments after reaching the age of 63 and are provided with an excellent conval1 escent home; A like favorable show ing, we are informed, is made by an other , London company called the1 Sceptre Life. On of Alcohol's Victims; dfthe world's great men there are many that could tell powerfully what whisky has done for them, and every one of them would use his genius to keep other men from his error; We cannot control the work of such geniuses. Therefore our readers must be content with the whisky arguments of tempei-at mediocrities; They must strengthen our arguments with plead ings and urging of their own. Alexander the Great conquered mil lions of men. He bagan in his youth by conquering a rebellious horse, soon passed to the conquest-of armies and he lived and died a conqueror; Obstacles, only added to his reputa tion, and his enemies before him were chaff and dust. But one thing conquered him drink. It conquered so thoroughly that the greatest of Alexander's vic tories was as nothing to the victory of Rltohol over Alexander; It made" him jealous and mean, when he was naturally magnanimous; it made him a false friend, it made him a murderer, it made him an invalid, and it killed him a very complete se ries of victories, as you will admit. New York Journal.' Whisky Kills Mother's Love; Can a mother forget her child? Yes, when she Is addicted to the awful habit of strong drink. Poverty can not make her forget. Suffering can not, but strong drink can. The fol lowing true story is calculated to make the blood curdle: A woman in Man Chester, N; H., has six children. The oldest 11 years old, the youngest six weeks. In the police court she pleaded guilty to the charge of drunkenness, but asked the judge to suspend sen tence because of her helpless children, agreeing to leave the place and live with certain relatives in the country. When she was released, instead of go ing to her children, who were then suf fering from hunger, she went back to the saloon and got drunk again. The oldest child went to the police station to look for her, which gave the offi cials the intimation that she had not returned to her family. The boy add ed that the children were entirely without food and cryiug from hunger. The officials took care of the children wHile the mother was again taken into custody. New Voice. Sobriety Is Best. It is said that there is as much drinking now as there ever was, but that men do not drink in the same way as of old, and that public drun kenness is now comparatively rare. Occasionally we see men upon the streets who are under the influence of liquor, but one might go from one end of Memphis to the other and not find a drunken man in a day's journey. Indeed, so -rare has such . a sight be come in this city that it excites uni versal attention. The drunken man used to be a familiar personage. Now he is an object of curiosity. Of course there are still plenty of men w"ho take their daily allowance of liquor, but they do not hire a brass band or fire off a few bombs to adver tise the fact. Men whose business permits of a certain amount of leisure are apt to be convivial, but it is ob servable that their conviviality is pret ty "well regulated. -It is the rare ex ception when they cross the bounds. Memphis Scimitar. Terminate, Not Tolerate. According to the Chicago Tribune, which has for years engaged in the not very cheerful task of collecting statistics of murders in the United States, in 1901, 820 murders out of 4,648 were caused directly by drunk enness. How much loss of life has been caused indirectly by drunken ness no statistician has ever - figured out. Liquor and life are not compat ibles, whether the life affected be physical or moral existence. The drink traffic is a constant menace to society, and is industriously occupied all "the while with undoing the work of civilization- and reducing large sec tions of the communities or states in which it flourishes to savagery. The saloon must not be tolerated, but ter minated. New York Observer. Sagasta Dead. ' Madrid, By Cable. Former Premier Sagasta, died at half past 6 o'clock Monday evening. His death was due to" bronchitis and gastric trouble. His family was at the deathbed and former Liberal members of the cabinet were near their old leader.

Whenever the name of Tiburon was mentioned no one would go A Y&qui Indian was hired but he backed out as soon as he heard of their destination saying: "I would not go for a million dollars." - The party finally bought the sloop Elia of eleven tons and sailed to Ti-. buron, which is about 125 miles down the gulf. . They sailed around it for thirteen days making two trips in land, on of eight miles on the Sonora side and the other fbur and a half miles on the gulf side. Whenever they saw any Indians they made a landing. At first the In dians were very suspicious, but finally they consented to do some trading. The party obtained some of the na tives' bows and poisonous arrows-and a peculiar bamboo boat. The Indians poison their arrows by taking the liver of a deer, allowing a rattlesnake to bite it, and then dipping their arrows into the innoculated liver. The Seris are supposed to have horses, as the party saw several hoof marks. The." island is about thirty-two miles long and eighteen wide. Members of the expedition shot many 'deer and report ed that the island is filled with rattle snakes. Chicago Chronicle. Love's Debt.
