What He Lacked.
It is related of a South Americal
~eneral, who ,was extremely wel
pleased fvith himself, that once whe'
about to sally forth to a grand dane
he surveyed himself contentedly i
the mirror and then soliloquize
"Ah! Thou hast 'all-ravery
wealth. position,. good looks. A1
what dost thou lack?'"
Whereupon his orderly, who ur
known to the general. was close a
"S.se general, sense!"

I do not think it .is a good idea to
have tuo many New Year resolutions.
They are generally written in the
sand. They don't last. We Should
do right and deal fairly and honest
ly all the time. Then we don.'t need
new yel"r, resolutions. I happened
to get hold of a paper the other day
-I think it was the F;aion Times
which conta.ins some resolutions for
the new year, both for men and wo
mn. They are pretty good-that is
I think so-and I believe I would
like to prhit them in this column, but
there is-no fspecial reason why they
are any more appropiat:e at this
season thau at any other time. Here
Reso Ved: I will pay my bills
pleasanyi. I will hand .out the
share of eash m- wife reqnires for
living expenses cheerfully. I will
try to see as much good and as lit
tle evil in my fellows as possible. I
will remember that it is beastly to
fail to be courteous to my owa fam
ily as well as to the great human
family. 1 will speak well of the din
ner when well cooked and well served
and try not to complain when it is
poorly eooked and poorly served. I
will whine-less and laugh more. I
will attend to my own business .and
try to -allow the other man to attend
to his. I will be good the first of the
month after "millinery opening." I
will in no case attempt to pliy the
part of the hypoerite. I will speak
the titth in'kindness, live the part
ofdarl man, ask no greater
favor thagt to- be allowed a -s'quare
dea:E4 will loo the world in- the
face $nd bootlick -nobody. I will
earry no chips oh my shoulder -but if
necessary will hold myself ready to
prove to- all coiners that a man walks
under my hat. I will be consid6rate
of the feelings of the man in poorer
eircumstances than Myself. I will
hold women: in greatest respect. I
will love little children, fear God,
and Him only, and-that is : enough
for one year.
I will raise the Waary of my cook
so she can live without stealing. I
will not be i scold. I will speak in
gnte, modulated voice. (Nothing
rsps more than a woman's rasping
voice).' I will dress for my husband
with the same care I did for my
sweetheart. I wHi not gossip with
my neighbors. The petty spites and
discords of my neighborhood shall
not enter my hou-se with my consent.
I will not say unkind things- at the
missionary society aboutmemrbers.'ho
are absent. I will not tell all I hear
nor g.l I know. I will not believe al1
I har. Moreover, I will see that the
dust is driven from underneath the
furniture and rugs and' out if the
closets. I will undertake t .3 gov.
ened by .common sense. I will not
nag my husband; if I have one. 2]
will obey 'him when he is reasonable
and will expect him to. obey me ii
everything.' I will not care a rap if
some other woman has finer clothes
than I, or more money to. spend thai
I 'have. I will make the best I car
of my lot, good or bad. I will dil:
no snuff even if my husband cews
tobacco. I will try to bear witi
him in .that folly, provided he will
keep the stain off his shirt front and
out of the corners 6df his mouth
These things he must do, for I wil
not stand for such neglect on hru
pa.rt. I will keep account of thi
grocery bills, -the coal bills,~t'he laun
dry bills and other minor matters o:
expense in and around the house.
Finally, I am resolved that, du~
ing the year of grace 1910, I wil.b'
a true woman, asking nothing bette
than a fair show and a square dea
from everybody. I will give to oth
ers what I require of them. Thes<
new resolutions ,will keep me bus:
for 1910 and don't you forget it.
Now. I'll 'bet my last summer'
