Value of Lenten Self Denial.
TO DROP a few pleasures for a brief season, only to plunge into
inem with new zest as soon as that season is ended; to cut off
Sunday luxuries for a few days, only to 'take them up again
with others added; to force oneself perfuntorily into a pious frame of
mind at the dictate of an ancient custom, and then jump out of it at
the earliest opportunity, surely this smacks of the artificial, and can
accomplish no permanent good. By linking religion with petty and in
significant seif-denials like the giving up of a cigar or a box of choco
lates, and by magnifying the importance of paltry acts of penance, there
is great danger of degrading- the whole idea of piety and making Chris
tianity seem a superficial and imsy thing.
The surface of life is just now demanding so much attention that
many of us do not care to look within. Life in great cities has com
pelled us to consider with absorbing gaze the exterior. Our lives are
lived under the eyes of others, and we are solicitous as to what they
see. Reputation was never worth so much as it is today and we must
have it even at the expense of our character. We place unwholesome
emphasis on externals. We are expert judges of the skins of things.
We dote on appearances. We are devotees of the surface. We are
adepts in the use of enamels, varnishes and veneers. We gild many
things and whitewash many others. Wemake a show even though we
have little to make it out of. We keep up appearances even if it kills
us. Life for many becomes a haggard struggle to please the eyes of
mortals. It is a truism easily forgotton that "God sees not as a man
sees. Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on
the heart." Dr. Charles E. Jafferson in Woman's Home Companion.
It is most unfortunate that Maui should again be visited with the
dread smallpox at this time. True, the cases are isolated ones, with
little probability of there being a spread of the disease, but, the fact
remains that it. is here, and through no fault of our own. The Fili
pinos affected passed through the quarantine at Honolulu with a clean
bill of health, and then bring the disease here. It seems strange to a
lay mind that these people could be taken down with this disease so
soon after leaving quarantine, and that there is a laxity seems altogeth
Seeing Through the Mist.
(By E. V. Wilcox.)
I HAD finished a ponderous German romance
And its echoes were still in my ears;
In the battle with envy and hate and despair
Love had broken its delicate wings.
There were ashes where burned the hot flame of desire,
And the longing had breathed its last sigh;
The fair morning of love with its limitless hope
Had expired in a deluge of tears.
And the sadness and pity and gloom of it all
Had beclouded the vista of hope;
With a dash of a brush and a shading of gray
A strange artist had pictured the scene;
And a strange hand was closing the doors of my soul
That looked out on the beautiful world.
I could feel the cold clutch of dismay in my heart
And the taste of despair on my lips.
But I flung down the book on the waste of the past.
And broke through the shadows of gray;
The whole sky was aflame with blood-red and gold.
There was answering red in my veins.
And the Poinciana flamed 'gainst the reddish of skies.
Who should doubt or tremble or shrink?
And the brave answer came from the flower, from thebird:
You must live, you must give, you must hope.

' "I remember one time," said a come
dian, "when a medicine show came to
our town, and father went to the per
formance. As you probably know, it
used to be the custom of the medicine
'doctor to try to make the audience
think he was merely selling his medi
cine to advertise it Such was the
case the night my father attended the
how. The 'doctor1 when he began
telling of the virtues of the cure-all de
clared that since he was merely adver
tising the medicine, he would positive
ly sell but one bottle to a person. It
would be Impossible to buy more than
one. That night my father reached
home very much elated. He came Into
the sitting room and pulled a bottle of
the medicine out of euch side pocket of
his coat ,
'"I got' ahead of the dunaed sinner!'
"'What's thatr I asked.
"Why, that feller said he wouldn't
sell us more than one bottle apiece,
but (here he shook his head and smil
ed) I fooled him. I got two.'
" 'How did you do ltr I asked.
" 'Why, dura him,' replied my fa
ther, 'I bought one. Then I went out
side, took off my coot an' come back
In an' bought another. The blamed
chump never knowed me.' "

That fine artist, Legros, had always
declined to learn English, but he took
an Inconsistent step, for he had him
self naturalized as an Englishman.
The Incident gave occasion to one of
his best replies, and, though an oua
tere painter, he was a Jovial wit.
"Well, Legros, how do you feel?" ask
ed a friend on the morrow of tho nat
uralization, "Why, particularly hap
py," Legros answered. "Yesterday I
had lost the battle of Waterloo and
today I have won it"
