, "What Will Kn. Gum (lay Bayl"
This is a question which mica tho
actions of moat peoplo to a very great
extent. We are all frequently so
impressed that wo aro glad to stop
f and consider it, before coming to a
determination npon any subject,
even while I begin to write I am
bailed with tho question as to what
** *8bo1 will say concerning this article.
And the truth ia I am not able to
give a satisfactory answer, but shall
continuo regardless of 'her' opinion.
It seems to be ono of tho weak

The child ia thus impressed at a vo*y
v early ago. It Boon begins to fear thai
ehe will object to its shoes, hat, coat
or something else; and ns time papss
os the child becomes more deeply
impressed with the idea that it is far
better to please 'her' in every par
ticular if possi'olo, and thus it keops
^on wearying with Ibis iclca, until 1 ho
boy in his 'toons' outers school quite
puzzled ns to the beet manner in
which to gain'her* good will. And
when declamation day comes ho is
more puzzled tlinn ever?ho is bo
fearful that Sjhe' will bo displeased
that, but f >r it being requit ed by his
icacher, ho would conclude in most
instances not to itiako an effort at all.
? But when ho does try. eiihor from
compulsion or voluntarily, his mind

that he makes a failure and is then

lees of what 'she' miirlit say, ho would
have been most likely to liavo succeeded.
Again tlie young lad'ea aro often
troubled concerning this same question.
It ia ono among their highest
nimes, and in fact, it is tho height of
tho ambition of aomo of them to
please Mrs. Grundy. An aasocia'ion,
ft camp meeting or something of ilio
kind is con ing. Miss A. define* to

1 and must therefore inako some purchases.
Tl'O millinery establishment
must be visited ai once, and the nir.n
tua-maker irmst have a speedy call,
beetles many other things 6ho is to
arrange with her own hands, but at
tliiu juncturo the more considerate
mother puts iti her appearance and |
suggests that thoy are rather 'short
np' in many matters, and that she
had belter irive ud her new idoas and I
appe&r on these occasions as heretofore.
Bnt here the tormenting thought
cornee with force that she exclaims
in a somewhat frotlul manner, "I
' will be laughed at." I've got nothv
ing lit to wear." 4iIf I can't go like
other folks I won't go at all." And
thus comes tho unnecessary trouble,
from having t>o great a desire to
please "Mrs.. Grundy." But I must
stop for this timo, as perhaps I shall
have something to say concerning
this groat "Mistress" at some future
time.

writes as follows about tho powor
of a well known plant: "I have
discovered a remedy for pulmonary

of eases alter they had cornmonced
