Thy heart will cheer thee, when the pain's
Do wrong for pleasure's sake, then count
The pleasure soon departs, the sin re

When entertaining company, a few
choice dishes are always appreciated.
Fancy cookery is nothing but plain

A SYMPOSIUM OF SALADS.
"There is nothing new under the
sun," which is true or salads; yet wo
may rearrange and garnish combina
tions so that they appear quite new.
Celery Salad.-Cut celery up into
Inch pieces and split each piece; rub

rad peppers. The peppers, cut in

The Indorsement of a nostrum by a i
clergyman, above all by a bishop, has i
for hundreds of years been all that |
was necessary to obtain recognition j
for such a remedy from a believing j
public. Bishop Berkeley set all Brit- ?
ain to drinking tar water. Supposed- ?
ly having received benefit from the
use of tar water when ill of the colic
he published a work on "The Virtues
of Tar Water," on which he said he
had bestowed more pains than on any j
of his productions and a few months ,
before his death he published his last ?
work, "Further Thoughts on Tar Wa- i
ter." That was in 1753. That tar ;
water had not passed out of favor in
rural England in the time of Charles
Dickens, is made evident in a laugh
able incident in "Great Expectations,"
where Pip. by a substitution of tar
water in a bottle of wine, gives Uncle
Pumblechook, corn-chandler and seed
man, opportunity to take a long swig
of Bishop Berkeley's cure-all, much to
that eminent seedsman's astonlshnseni
you aspire to be. Man's noblest grift to
man ls his sincerity, for lt embraces hl3
Integrity also. -Henry D. Thoreau.

Saving Sense of Humor.
When the rehearsals for "As a Man
Thinks" was In progress. Jake Shu
bert, who was laboring with the au
thor, Augustus Thomas, in whipping
the play into shape, was rather free
with his suggestions about changes in
the lines and scenes. At last, during
a dramatic and very serious situation,
"Right here, now. I think we ought
to have a little humor to lighten up
the general effect."
"Very well," replied Thomas, after a
long and heavy pause. "For instance?"
Then the play proceeded as tne au
thor had written lt-Popular Maga i
