Just land enough to till,
And food, starved mouths to flu,
And faith to find God's will.

Sweet toil from sun to sun,
Sweet rest when toil is done.
Ambition is but vain,
Pleasure handmaid of p.iin;
Fate follows in h^r train.
An humble life-then cr xp

< Tte Thawii of i Professor. ?
W WT V-""*^ ????
The professor was young and he
looked still younger. He was ashamed
of his juvenile appearance. He felt
that it consorted poorly with his seri
ous calling. To be professor of Eng
lish literature at an old and well en
dowed college at twenty-seven was a
fact to be proud of, but the professor
felt that his age was not a thing
that should be flaunted in the faces
of the undergraduates-nor in the
faces of his grave and reverend sen
iors of the faculty. So he decided to
assume the characteristics of an age
more in harmony with his official dig
nity. He affected black garments of
severe cut. He wore straight band col
lars with narrow black ties. He decked
? his head with a stiff hat of unusual
height of crown.
Added to this outward semblance of
severity to temperament, the professor
cultivated an artificial manner of
speech and an angular gait, both tend
ing to convey the impression that he
was a person of mature contempt for
the glibness and friskiness of youth.
The professor was a born actor, and
he somewhat enjoyed this make-be
lieve existence. After a while it be
came second nature and was no longer
a task. There were times, of course,
when he longed to throw off these arti
ficial shackles and be his true self
again-and this longing was especial
ly strong when pretty Mabel Benham 1
rallied him on his mournful air. Pret
ty Mabel never seemed to have the
proper appreciation of his dignity. She
was in the senior class of the woman's
collee- annex of the university, and the
professor boarded with his mother. He
had come to the city with letters of
introduction to this estimable lady,
and she had promptly offered him a
"I wonder," said pretty Mabel to her
mother after one unusually elevating
course of dinner talk, "how long it
took Prof. Philips to acquire that lab
ored style of his?"
"It doesn't seem quite natural," said
her mother. "But I think he enjoys it."
He had been with them nearly four
mouths, when one afternoon some
body rang the bell. The maids were
' busy elsewhere, so Mabel opened the
door. She found the caller was a hand
some young man, very neatly dressed,
and very correct in deportment.
"I beg your pardon," he said, as he
gracefully raised his hat. "but is this
the home of Mr. Jim Phillips, I should
say Prof. James Phillips?"
"Yes," replied Mabel, "but the pro
fessor is out just at present. He has
gone to the public library, but will re
turn soon. Will you come in and wait
"Thank you, I will," said the
stranger. "I have come all the way
from Chicago to see Jim, and I can't
afford to miss him." He followed Mabel
Into the parlor and took the seat she
point-si out. "Jim and 1 are old chums,"
he went ont. "We wt :e quite insep
_ arable in college, but luring the last
few years have drifted apart Is he
well and happy?'
"He is well, I'm sure," replied Mabel.
"But I'm afraid he doesn't look quite
as happy as he might"
And the wicked girl indulged in an
"That's strange,' said the caller.
"What's* the trouble? Isn't h j giving
"Oh, yes," replied Mabel; "every
body says he's a rising man. You
know he's one of the very youngest
professors in the country."
"It can't be financial difficulties,"
said the stranger. "Perhaps he's in
"Oh, no," said Mabel; "he's much
too dignified to think of anything so
"Jim Phillips dignified!" cried the
stranger. 'Pardon me, but that's too
good!" And he laughed merrily.
""Pray excuse me," said Mabel, as
she backed toward the door. The
stranger straightened his face and
arose as she left the apartment But
as she passed down the hall she heard
him softly laughing again;
"Mother," said Mabel as soon as she
reached her parent, 'there's an ele
gant young man in the parlor and he's
come all the way from Chicago, and
he knows everything about the profes
sor, and calls him Jim, and laughs at
his being dignified, and we must ask
him to stay to dinner."
"But, really, dear," said the moth
er, "the professor might not like it."
"I'll take the chances," cried Mabel.
"Don't you see? This is an opportunity
for lifting the veil of the professor's
past." And she darted back to the
"If you have no other engagement,"
she said in her prettiest manner, "my
mother would be pleased to have you
remain tc dinner."
'My only engagement is to meet my
old friend,' said the stranger. "Pray
thank your mother, and tell her I ac
cept her invitation with much pleas
Just then a latchkey rattled in the
<loor and the profesor entered. He had
to pass ine parlor on his way to the
stairs, and hearing a slight move
ment he looked in.
'Why, Billy!" he cried, and sprang
And the last thing Mabel saw as she
slipped away was the two men wildly
shaKing hands and thumping each oth
er on the breast.
They had quieted down when Mal el
and her mother came to announce din
ner, but the professor colored up wnen
he saw the ladies.
"Mrs. Benham," he said, "permit
me to present my friend, Mr. Gilbert.
Miss Benham, Mr. Gilbert." Then he
added hurriedly: "Mr. Gilbert and I
?? drne at the hotel this evening."
j 'Sorry to disappoint you, dear boy,"
?aid the newcomer, "but I have an
"May I ask where?" inquired the
"Here," replied the newcomer, as he
followed Mrs. Benham to the dining
foom. Then, when they were seated,
te turned xto the hostess. "Madam," he
?aid, "am I to infer that you have a
prejudice against the people of the
"Certainly not," the lady replied.
"But why do you ask such a ques
"Because Prof. Jim Philips here
quite neglected to state my business,"
said the newcomer with a quizzical
smile. "And, naturally, I argue that
he either is ashamed of his friends
profession, or else he wished to spare
your feelings. But I shall not spare his.
It is right for you to learn just what
company he keeps. Know then,
madam, that I am an actor and a play
Mrs. Benham's eyes brightened.
"You are not Mr. William Gilbert, of
'Shirley Hume* fame, are you?" she
"The same, madam."
"This is an unexpected pleasure,"
said the good lady. "We have heard
so much about you and your wonder
fully succesful play. I am surprised
that the professor has not mentioned
"So am I," said the newcomer. "I am
grieved. If a theatre hadn't burned and
thrown us out of a three nights' en
gagement I couldn't be here. And just
think of it! If it hadn't been for Jim l
never would have thought of making
the stage a profession. Ile led me into
it. Jim is the best amateur actor our
old alma mater ever roofed, and he
gave me the first part I ever learned
in a little farce he wrote himself. Did
you not. Jim?"
A smile struggled across the profes
sor's face. It deepened, and then he
laughed merrily. And William Gilbert
laughed, too, and so did Mabel and her
mother. And then Mabel caught the
eminent actor's merry eye.
"I beg your pardon, professor," said
Mrs. Benham, "but you don't mind our
laughing, do you?'
"Not in the least," replied the pro
fessor, with a cheerful grin. "I take it
as a compliment to my actor friend.
It's his business to make people laugh,
"I declare," said the actor as they
left the table, "I haven't enjoyed a
dinner so much in I don't know when.
Here I've been on the road for five
months and haven't dared to crack a
make-believe smile, much less the real
article. I tell you it's a relief to get
the risible muscles in working order
again. I'd have walked all the way
' from Chicago for an evening like this."
They were back in the parlor, and as
the actor-playwright finished his little
speech Mabel caught his eye.
"I'm afraid," she said, "that the pro
fessor has permitted your presence to
make him forget a promise he gafe to
mamma this morning."
"And what was that, may I ask?" in
"He promised he would finish his
talk on "Unorganized Charity as a
Wrecker of Spontaneous Sympathy'
during the dinner tonight."
"Dear, dear; does he run 'em in
serial style?" inquired Gilbert in a tone
of mock solicitude. "But, there, it's too
late now to cry over wrecked sym
pathy. The profesor and I will walk
down to the hotel, get my travelling
bag, enjoy a good cigar and presently
reappear and make an evening of it
Do I hear any objection?"
"Does the professor really smoke?"
said Mabel with lifted eyebrows.
"Pray don't be astonished at any
thing concerning my cloudy past that
this alleged boyhood friend considers
it pleasant to reveal," said the pro
The two men were not gone long.
They came back in the best of spirits.
The professor was laughing merrily as
they entered, and mother and daughter
in the parlor, awaiting their return,
smiled at the unwonted sound.
Then ensured a most delightful even
ing. Gilbert took pression of the
piano and proved himself a player of
remarkable resources. And the profes
sor sang some astonishingly amusing
songs, for which Gilbert told funny
dialect stories, and he and 'he profes
sor had a shrieking sidewalk con

"You didn't know you were enter
taining a vaudeville angel unawares,"
said Gilbert as he glanced at his watch.
"What! Why, it's midnight! Here, this
precocious phenomenon must bc taken
to bed. Say good night to the ladies."
And they shook hands all around.
As Mabel let her hand rest in the
professor's she softly said: T think
your are ever BO much nicer when you
are your real self.''
When the two meu came down to
breakfast the next morning the profes
sor was wearing a collar with bent
corners and a dark blue tie.
"Mr. Gilbert presented me with
these," he said when he saw the ladies'
amused glances. "I'm wearing them for

men look handsome," said Gilbert as
he stared at the professor with his
head very much at one side. "I will be

Coverlnci for Polished Table?.
If tho summer coverings for polished

of some soft fabric of the flannel va

In winter tho piant should te kept in a
light place in the house, but should
not have too much sun. Once each
week the entire pot should be thor

water and allowed to soak over night,
giving the water ample opportunity to
soak to its centre. Next morning tafcj

Tho Homo Instinct in College Girl?.
The home-making instinct is delight
fully evident in the social life of col
leges for girls, writes Jeannette A.
Marks in Good Housekeeping. All the
little Sunday evening suppers in their
own rooms from which kuey rise say
ing: "Well, hasn't this been quiet and
homelike!" and all the attempts to
make home out of one or two rooms,
are evidences of this instinct So
ciety houses or society rooms are sim
ply larger efforts to make larger homes.
As in the case with any home, these
houses which the members of a so
cieyt build and carry on afford a whole
some problem; the economical making
of an attractive place which shall be
comfortably furnished and arranged.
College girls frequently have means
but. seldom wealth. There is necessity
for economy, and these unfledged
home-makers learn to spend money
wisely. They do not give five dollars
for a two-inch bronze pug dog and
ninety-five cents for a flimsy, spindle
legged chair intended for gilding. They
discover that durability as well as ex
penditure is a part of economy.
It is well that these homes are not
controlled by the tastes of two or three
members, but by the entire society. The
advantages of such a republic are
many; no bad taste, no eccentricity, no
extravagance of furnishing can pre
dominate, and at least a "happy me
dium" of good taste is the result. Re
sponsibility for such a house, whether
it be in the process of evolution or
complete, has a direct edlicational
value.. The student quickly discovers
that she has the latchkey to a house
which is Old Dutch, or Renaissance.

Why Women Like Fiction.
Do women find in fiction the roman
tic element they crave, and perhaps do
not find in sufficient quantity in lif?'
How otherwise are we to acco?r.
their devotion to novels, wi*" ^ut which
the story-writer would ft..e hut ill up
on the slim diet of an unfilled purse,
and the publisher share the disaster?
If .Mr. Carnegie should be able to keep
out of libraries, as he suggested, all
fiction under three years old, it might
safely be said that the women would
be against him-which means that the
they could not be done. Women like
new fiction; they want the book that ts
"just out." If it is a historical novel,
they feel that they are gathering in
formation, Heaven bless them! If it is
a romance, pure and simple, they for
get over its pages the uomestic trials
of the morning or the afternoon. It
does them no more harm than has been
done for countless generations. For
women are nourished upon fiction from
the days of their birth. Our girls are
reared in an atmosphere rarefied and
cleared from all impurities. The
world is shown them through a rose
tinctured glass. "Here, dearest, is a
city, a wonderful city of happy homes,
of beautiful art, of heavenly aspiratoin.
And these-these are men, noble, high
minded beings who will always guide
and teach and protect you. These other
are women, lovller than everything
else," And so on. Fiction without dis
crimination is fed to the girl who
looks with heaven-givet? trust into the
eyes of her well-meaning teachers. And
when she becomes a woman, the habit
has sent its roots into her soul, and
he she happy or pensive, she reads fic
tion. With men it is different; They
do not expect from life what women "
do. When they read novels it is to for
get the rigors of business, to enter de
liberately a region which they know
doea not exist. But women can seldom
quite believe that it docs not exist. To
them life is romance, if it does not
turn out well, so much the worse tor
life, and they turn to books, where the
happy ending is fairly sure to be
counted upon. In women's love for
fiction there ls something more than
superficially apparent.-Harper's Week

x baby I contracted catarrh, and was doc
tored by several good physicians, but none
did mo any good. My mother was taking
Peruna at the time and gave some of it
to me, and I soon began to improve, and
am now well and fat as a little pig. I am
twelve years old. The doctors told mother
I had the consumption, but it waa only ca
tarrh."-Miss Pearl Bousch.
It is no longer a question as to whether
Peruna can be relied on to cure ail such
cases. During the many years in which
Peruna has been put to test in.all forma
and stager of acute and chronic catarrh
no one year has put this remedy to greater
test than thc past year.
Peruna is the acknowledged catarrh rem
edy of the age. Dr. Hartman, the com
pounder of Feruna, has written a book on
the phases of catarrh peculiar to women,
untitled, "Health and Beauty." It will be
sent free to any address by The Peruna
Medicine Co., Columbus, Ohio.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory' results from the use of Peruna,
