Some time ago an acquaintance said to
mo that she had been greatly comforted
by a poem that she rend In one of tho
dally paper?. "It came," she continued,
"with all the force of a personal message.
Just when I was getting very weary of
nn undertaking that had crown Into n
hopeless and apparently endless task. It
made me feel that I must continue the
work already begun, and aid the 'almost
vanquished soul' so that the spirit and good
cheer of the sentiments expressed In those

re.i1l7.lnu sense of the requirements of some
weaker nature dependent upon her for
culdanee, either directly or Indirectly to
accomplish all of this truly the writer
must have been absorbed with love and
sympathy for humanity. I'en pictures

the understanding. Eloquence wins your
admiration, nnd you pay Involuntary liom

that of one appreciative mind to another
possessed of vastly superior attributes. It
Is when a human being with the gift of
special trenlus hath nlso the power to dis
cuss the wants of the heart, that his or
her lnlluence approaches more nearly to
divinely appointed ministration,
A day or two later my friend, still Im-
Cressed with the message of the verses,
I ought them to me.

The name of their author was not new
to me. nnd knowing something or Miss
Dennv's own conscientious views of life
nnd Its duties, It seemed no marvel that
the sweet spirit of good cheer accom
plished the mission where unto It was
sent. The same hopeful Influence per
vades another of her poems which first
Appeared In the Home Magazine, entitled
"Without nnd Within."
Falling leaves, liow drear! how drear!
Depth of sunless atmosphere,
Under music than the lyre,
In the throats of forest choir.
Hues, nor Instinct with life's gaze,
Nor yet blushing at death's praise.
Falling leaves, so drear, so drear.
Summer's dead, and dies the year.
Fnlt'rlng heart, what cheer? What cheer?
Shrlnkest thou In craven fear?
Though the outer tempest din,
Light the altar fires, within;
All the brightness lost to thee
Thou mayst keep In memory
So, O heart, with bravest cheer.
Hold thy summer all the year.
Quite appropriate to the season, and al
so comforting In Its blissful application, is
the "Spring Song:"
See through the wintry snow
Ureen patches drifting;
Hark to a tiny bird.
Ills voice uplifting.
Back from the lands of palm
Comes the blithe rover,
Singing a glad refrain,
"Winter is over."
So a heart, long benumbed,
Hack to life drifting.
Hears, through Its moan and plaint,
Hope's song uplifting.
"Thou hast put far from me,
True friend nnd lover"
"Winter Is over, heart;
Winter Is over!"
One must look a long while to find ns
nappy and picturesque personifications ns
In "June," which comes lrom the same pen
with a rare sparkle, changing in the last
live lines to a lambent glow:
June's a maiden In whoso eyes
Linger happy memories;
April has her coquetries.
May her radiant prophecies
Juno is nil fulllllmcnt's bliss.
Deeper grows the wood-bird's tune,
Ardent-globed glows the moon,
And through nights of silver runo
Liquid lloats th roses' noon

"Ah well, men nre but human,"

A truly happy woman.
Through nil -the sunshine lighted years.
Lived now in retrospection,
My husband's word brought never tears.
Nor caused a sad rellection.
What'er the burdens of the day.
Unflinching, calm and steady.
To bear his part the larger half
I always find him ready.
House cleaning season brings no frown,
No sarcasm, pointed keenly;
Through carpets up, and tacks head down.
He makes his way serenely.
Our evenings pass In converse sweet,
Or quiet contemplation,
We never disagree except
To "keep up conversation."

Fair moonlight of September,

THE SODAWATER MAID,

Much has been written about the chiffon
girl, but has any one reasoned out the his
tory of her evolution?
The tailor made girl I her direct ances
tor, but the latter's Inveternte habit or tip
pling at tho soda water fountain has
wrought tho change.
Tho excessive nmotint of fizzy efflores
cence Imbibed for so many years has, like
a long smoldering llnme, burst the stirt
bands of linen nround neck and sleeves,
conquered the molded lines and curves, nnd
materialized Itself In a bewildering mass
or runic and llurr that has supplanted the
severity or costume. Nothing lint the soda
drinks can be held responsible ror the
change. The roda water girl Is so dis
tinctly a product of the day that sho should
have careful consideration.
How very different In character Is she to
tho gentle maiden, who clad herself In a
dress of simple muslin, with blue or pink
ribbons, twined a rose or a string or pearls
In her ringlets, nnd sat with dignified nnd
upright demeanor upon her grandmother's
stiff mahogany chairs, sipping with the
guests the "raspberry vinegar " or "cur
rant shrub," served In crystal glass, beau
tifully cut and pollhed, nnd ncalnst which
the Ice tinkled with suppressed merriment.
Those were davs of dignity nnd reserve,

executed drinks nnd let him pay for them.

LYING IN WAIT
Tho summer girl Is more far sighted than
the winter sister, who very often complains
of the lack of attention from her admir
ers; but tho tickets to the theater and
opera are expensive, nnd so are winter
Mowers, and so nre nice III tie suppers or
dinners or breakfasts a deux; nnd homage
to buiiuty leaps beyond the average purse
and out of the average affection or the
averago gallant when the thermometer
Imps low. The summer girl demands less,
and, consequently, gets more.
Her summer bravery for the conquest Is
less difficult to obtain and less harassing
to arrange; and. this provided for, the rest
Is easy. All she requires Is to have some
one who "will pilot her empty heart unto
the shores of nothing," and carry this
frail bark over boundless, limitless oceans
of soda water. She Is lying In ambush
now for the young man with the broad
brimmed hat. decked with the striped

With what Intensity of Interest and al
most ferocity of argument a group of these
Naiads of tho Soda Fountain will select
their favorite syrups and mixtures. One
orders pineapple, another cries her down
and begs her to try lemon phosphate, an
other pleads for raspberry and cream, a
third orgeat, and yet another orange
flower. There Is no prevalent fashion In
these very soft drinks, and. thereforo. the
fountain displays Its tempting array or
syrups ror Individual taste to exert Itself
In all wild combinations and drawing hues.
Still the soda girl would take anything
that came in her way for a new sensation.

Mary Lyon, tho famous rounder of Mount
Holyoke school, was a woman of plnln
features and of a reserved nnd rather
diffident mnnnor. She recognized these de
llclencles in herself, and aiso considered
them quite essential to the success of a
teacher. Therefore In selecting assistants
.n her seminary she always preferred those
with pretty faces nnd what used to bo call
ed "pretty manners" as well.

Robert Iyollls Stevenson held that "the
doctrine or tho excellence or women, how-

false, and that It Is better to face the fact
and know when you marry that you take

llko frailties whose heart beats no .more
tunefully than yours." The common charge
or being taken captive by a pretty race can
not be brought against Stevenson, since ho

her intellectual and literary congeniality,
rather than personal beauty.

national government should offer a large
reward for tho discovery of a new process
suitable to the simple treatment of complex

revelation will be vouchsafed to some
dreaming metallurgist, which shall revolu

100 per cent of the value contained In the
poorest and most perverse of gold bearing

She was from Brookln. and all In a day
you may say was thrown on her own re

Instead ot being discouraged sho bravely
sat down and looked over her accomplish

a boarding house nnd the lowly position
ot servant to another; so that there re
mained but one thing her knack of can
ning. At first sight It seemed a little thing to
earn her living with, but she was willing
to try It. Arming herseir with samples ot
her choicest Jellies and preserves sho went
to a family whom sho had heard were go-

order, but sent her to several uther parties,
so that when spring opened this plucky
woman had ns much ordered of her as she
full she could do.
Some of the families gave her orders on
their grocers for the lrult. sugar and any
thing else she needed, two gave her the
ready money she thought would see her
through and the test mado no provision

little money It took so much planning, but
she got through all rlfiht.
Everything worked well. When her
patrons returned In the autumn tiny were,
one and nil, more than pleased with her
work, and llndlng that she could cok and
bake equally well. kpt her busy all wnter,
making choice dishes, pastry at I cakes,

Now she has entered her fourth year

her Income and can do up fruit well will
