How to Avoid itciiiu' a Hore.
lt is ari easier matter than tu >?t ;
wouiou realise tu brcoiue a thorough'
going boro. A trilling fanaticism on
Bouic subject laektog in gcueral inter
est: a little inconsiderateness as to
the interests of others-and the foun
dation is laid.
The man who horeb i- a sore trial,
but ?lie woman rho possesses such a
characteristic is a positive ailliction.
Doubtless there are few readers who
have not met such a woman. She
will recito for hours at a stretch thc
troubles-real and imaginary-which
she experiences with her husband,
children and servants. She will ex
pound upon her own ailments, and
bore you with recital of pains and
aches, sufficient t<> fill a hospital
She also usually complains of being
a bundle of nerves, ami yet takes a
keen delight in telling you thc most
sensational and harrowing new.-i which
she has read, until she makes your
flesh cree]). And if you plead an eri
g? riment in order t?> escape her, she
u . only offers, but aitually insists,
in h . .anner not to be denied, on ac
companying you until she has ex
hausted her fountain of talk.
The grievances which such a woman
has to tel 1 you arc inexhaustible. No
matter how earnestly she may work
for thc good of others, she is always
sure that no one appreciates her
efforts. The truth of the matter is,
that she does nothing at all without
largely advertising the fact, and no
body can appreciate self-praise.
She talks of thc failings of her hus
band, children and servants, totally
ignoring her own faults, which, how
ever, are very apparent to her friends.
She is not with you five minutes bo
fore she begins telling you of thc
hours which her husband spends at
the club, neglecting her night after
night. No wonder, you remark in
wardly, thej poor man tries to escape
thc affliction as much as possible, if
his wife "bores him as much as she
Then there is the woman whose
children treat her unfeelingly. She
eannot mention them without enumer
ating all their petty faults and fail
ings. lier children torture her, and
her servants wear her into shreds.
In fact, to judge from her tattles,
they seem to have been specially
created by a spiteful Providence to
worry her -into an early grave.
But of all the women who bore
their friends perhaps the most to be
despised-for really she deserves
nothing but contempt-is the woman
who fancies that she is entitled to till
some mission in the world, and bemoans
her fate because she married a poor or
incapable man, who cannot help her
to realize her hopes and ambitions.
Such a woman makes her own life
miserable as well as the lives of every
ono connected with her. What action
can be worse on the part of a woman
than that of giving vent t > thoughts
which arc a continual reproach to her
husband, because she is not what
she thinks she ought to be? Pride
should keep a woman from talking in
fluoh a manner, even though she might
have dissatisfied thoughts.
. The woman who would avoid becom
ing a bore must remember that her
personal affairs and petty domestio
troubles are of no particular interest
to anyone, except, perhaps, to spite
ful neighbors, to whom they form
food for gossip. If you meet or visit
a friend, the natural question is,
"How are you getting on?" or some
thing to that effect. But there is no
necessity to enter into the most minute
details of your troubles or to bemoan
your fate, whioh, after all, is bul
cowardly. Friends have quite enough
trouble and worry with their own
affairs without having to listen to r.
long recital of what coes not conoern
Every woman, of course, is not a
good conversationalist, nor possess
the happy knack of being able to
entertain friends with pleasing tap.

(hie Thousand nie
In a catastrophe which suddenly
blots out nearly a thousand lives thc
civilized wcrld finds cause for horror
and sympathy alike. On the commu
nity in which such a disaster occurs ita
first effect is dazzling, and it is n*'t
strange that following thc destruction
of the (?cncral Slocum expressions of
doubt as to the wisdom of (Jod and his
direction of humau affairs should bc
heard alike from the irreligious and
thc unthinking. It is only in the
calmer time of afterthought, that,
thanks to the figures of thc statisti
cian, such an accident, terrible in its
detail and shocking in its nature,
sinks into insignificance in the death
litt of tho day, not merely in thc
world or thc nation, but even in the
State and thc city.
The estimated annual death rate for
thc world of 15,000,000, a daily total
of 123,000, sends into obscurity thc
thousand or fewer who were slain on
thi' General Slocum, in thc omnis
cience of (?od, whether one assume thc
position of ibo doubter or the cyuic,
thc death roll of a single accident,
even though it bc as great as that of
thc General Slocum, can be only a mi
nor detail, even more insignificant, in
view of the fact that all lifo ia doomed
to perish. In tho case of this recent
borrow nearly a thousand lives, a
larger number than in any similar ac
cident in recent years, were lost. Kor
a few hours thc wharves and shores
along thc river were transformed into
a morgue. In a single day there were
moro than 200 funerala of victims,
while tho city ?ras plunged into
mourning and thc civilized world gave
expressions to ita sympathy and sor
Yet, great aa waa tho tragedy at the
moment, its part even in thc death list
of thc year is only slight. In the
normal existence of this metropolis as
many persons dio every 108 hours
from reasons incident to city life as
perished in the holocaust near North
Brother island. That this number
should bc equally significant to thc
Divine power must be granted, and,
as death is the commonest factor in
human life, it cannot be regarded from
a dilTent standpoint, whether it oc
curs in accident or in ordinary course
of affairs. Within this State H00 die
every day. The talc of deaths in the
United States reaches 2,850 daily, a
figure three times that of the victims
of the General Slocum.
There die annually in Greater New
York 75,000 persons, a number larger
than that of tho population of Tren
ton, N. J. Within the United States
gravea are annually dug for more than
a million coffins. In the face of this
vast harvest of mortality, the number
alain on the General Slocum seems
slight, even to the human intellect.
In the death rate of the year for the
State or city tho Slocum horror will
hardly make an appreciable differ
ence, while in the 45,000,000 dead of
the world each 12 months it is only a
tiny item. Therefore, to sober second
thought, the unreasoning instinct to
place upon the power which the mil
lions regard as omnipotent-whether
rightly or wrongly does not enter into
the question-any additional respon
sibility for so slight an increase to
humanity's death roll appears patent
ly absurd.-New York Tribune.

Child > Play. j
Th?-rc is n<> more melancholy fact
than that the children of large cities
do not know how lo play.
The hoy of thc small country town
has more genuine nerve-tempering,
muscle developing, cou rage-breeding
fuu in a minute than thc city boy ha?
in a year.
The swimming hole at the willow
screened bend in thc creek has been
the scene of more genuine joys than a
whole ??ty can alford. And thc
gamea in the country are dilfcrcut
from their feeble counterpart in the
city. In the country thc games are
naturally adapted io thc exuberant
spirits of youth. In thc city they arc
poor imitations of the professional
games of grownup men.
In the country ihe child seems to bc
a part of nature. In thc city he par
takes of thc gilded veneer with which
conventionality seeks lo hide vulgar
nature from human eyes. In the cit
ies we must establish gymnasiums
and appoint physical diiectors in the
public schools to teach children how
to play. lu thc country these things
would bc as superfluous as an institu
lion to teach birds-to sing.
The child that is allowed to run
free at play is as happy as the birds.
That child s laugh has the same heart
ring as has thc bird song. The glow
in its eyes and on its check is as warm
and as true as is the reflection ol' thc
sun upon a spring fed pool. Take a
moment some titucaud note that child.
lt will be time well spent. Observe
how its spirit blends into that of all
the multiform life around it. It coos
and chortles and flits like thc birds in
the green boughs; it whispers like the
leaves; it flushes red like the rose,
and anon like thc panBy turns its mod
est face to the sky; it clasps the green
earth's bosom as though it were its
very mother; it hides in the vines and
shrubs and becomes a very part of
The heart of the child that can pip y
is attuned to nature's symphonies.
Hut imagine a shadow thrown across
the picture. See a fashionably-dress
ed woman in a doorway and hear a
stern voice call for a nurse to fetch
thc child into the house instantly.
See the rose glow die from the little
face! The cooing and chortling and
whispering change to a half suppress
ed cry. Discord leaps into the smyph
ony. Thc child ceased to be a part of
nature and becomes human-human
with the humanity that mankind has
Let the child play! Let it roll on
the grass and even in the dirt, if it
will. It is easier to wash and mend
clothes thau it is to cleanse a poisoned
childhood ; easier to salve bruised limbs
than melancholy hearts. It is an old
adage that as the child plays the man
will work. It is through play that the
child develops its physical, mental
and moral attributes.-Atlanta Jour
As it Was Intended.
A certain olergyman reports the
following incident as oocurring just
inside the entrance to one of tho
largest and most popular New York
churches during a crowded service :
It was during the reading of a pray
er, and the entire congregation was
kneeling. A man of rough appear
aooo, evidently unused to ecclesias
tical surroundings, strolled through
the open doors and stared in apparent
wonderment at the silent and kneel
ing congregation. He - looked a mo
ment, then turning to the sexton, who
stood near by, remarked briefly :
"Well, this beats the old boy!"
The sexton turned a serene eye on
"Thetis the intention," he replied.

Capt. Willnef's Remarkable Kseapc
Shows What to do ia Time of
For many years, Captain Willuef,
Bays thc Times of Gloucester, Mass.,
was one of the best known seamen in
the Gloucester Fleet. The sea and
its dangers had no terror for him,
but the catarrhal troubles with which
he suffered for fifteen years made
him dread the nights at sea, for he
had to walk the cabin lloor, being
unable to lie down and sleep on ac
count of the constant catarrhal drop
Captain Willuef went to two differ
ent hospitals for treatment, but could
get no lasting benefit. He constantly
raised yellow atid green phlegm and
his trouble became so unbearable and
nauseating that he was ashamed to
go out in company. When despairing
of ever getting relief, his wife pur
chased a llyouiei outfit for him, and
trying it before going to bed, he en
joyed the first whole night's sleep for
ten years. Captain Willnef says : "I
have used less than two bottles of
llyouiei and have been cured by the
remedy. My friends ask me what is
responsible for my improvement, and
I tell them Ilyomci which has given
me full and complete recovery."
Captain Willnef's experience shows
our readers what to do in time of
catarrhal trouble,-use Ilyomei. This
rcmatkable treatment kills the germs
of catarrh and makes lasting and per
manent cures. H vans Pharmacy sell
Ilyomei under their personal guarantee
to refund the money if it does not
give quick relief.
