Sweet Picture That Some of Us Are
Privileged to Carry In Our
Everybody loved that old-fashioned
lady. And I, find almost everyone past
forty has, at the back of'hls mind,
vivid Impressions regarding her and
the social life of which she was the
center. One remembers the atmo
sphere of that day as one remembers
the blush roses and spicy pinks of old
gardens. Even yet there are gardens
where blush roses grow, and I know
some women not yet old, and a few
young girls, whose mere presence
serves today to reproduce that at
mosphere. She was dauntless and
sweet, that old-fashioned Lady witty
but tender as notable a housewife
as a hostess full of gentle concern
for others,- with a mind ever at leis
ure for their affairs, and a heart
whose sympathy was Instantaneous In
their service. She stimulated and she
soothed. Fine, complicated and Inter
esting as the old lace and finely
wrought gold she delighted to wear,
fill* was a very precious piece of por
celain. The.brilliant, soft daguerreo
type that has preserved her early like
ness for us did not idealize her be
yond her Just due. Perhaps the In
timate secret of her influence was the
impression she gave of one whose
heart is fixed, one whom the world can
no longer harm.—The Atlantic.
THOUGHT HE* MEANT TRIPE
Mr*. Mills' Sadly Misled About Hus
band's Diet by Deaf Old
Mr. Mills was ill, and Mrs. Mills
sent post haste for the deaf old family
doctor, who, responding promptly to
the call, looked Mr. Mills carefully
over and decided he was not going to
die that time. As the physician took
his leave, Mrs. Mills followed him out
into the hall. "Dr. Grimes," she said,
"how about Albert's diet? You didn't
tell me what I should give him to
The doctor, who had his deaf side
toward his interrogator, mistook her
question for an inquiry as to the na
ture of Mr. Mills 'disease and replied
gruffly and shortly: "Oh, stomach,
stomacfi—nothing but stomach
"Dear me!" thought Mrs. Mills, who
is not a subtle reasoner. "I suppose,
of course, he must mean tripe. It's a
singular diet, but perhaps Albert's dis
eas'e Is singular."
Next day when the doctor called he
found the patient much worse, and at
once inquired what he had had to

to," shouted Mrs. Mills into the doc

Prayers for Suicides.
On All Souls' Day every good Cath
olic goes to some cemetery to lay
flowers on the graves of loved ones.
Owing to the'number of suicides by
drowning in the Danube there are
many dead to whom this rite cannot
be paid, and In honor of these a
touching ceremony has been held in
Budapest. Several thousand persons,
walked In solemn procession to the
bank of the Danube by the Franz
Josef bridge, and a wreath made of
leather was sunk In the water, while
the attendants uncovered their heads
and said prayers. On one side of the
wreath the words were embossed,
"For the salvation of those who died
in the Danube," and on the other side,
"Do not take this out, but leave It
in the water." A "layman then gave
an address, in which he extolled the
virtues of many of those who had
been driven to suicide, and con
demned the church for refusing Its
blessing to their bodies.
Remains of George Whitefleld.
Rev. SilveBter HOrne, who desires to
have the remains of George White
field brought from America and buried
in the Chapel in Tottenham Court
road which bears his name, may not
know that a portion of those remains
has already done a double Journey
across the Atlantic. Whitefleld died
of asthma September 30, 1770, while
on a preaching tour In America, and
was burled, by his own desire, in a
vault beneath the Presbyterian church
at Newburyport. Fourteen years aft
er his death the coffin was opened,
when the body was found perfect. In
1901 it was opened again, when "the
flesh was gone, but the gown, cassock
and bands remained." Shortly after
ward a bone of the right arm was
stolen by an admirer and sent to Eng
land. Protest was made, and the
bone was restored to Newburyport in
In Europe, where the food value of
honey seems to be much better un
derstood than in the United States,
enormous quantities are used. Of late
years we seem to be waking to a
realization of the value of honey as a
wholesome and delicious article of
food, and also as to Its preservative
qualities. .Cakes and sweetbreads
made with sugar corn become dry
and crumbly, and to get the good of

when they are made up with honey,

is preferred to that just made. They
