For Every Man to Read.
Some Modest Hints as to What Many
Women Want for Christmas.
As Christmas comes on the faces of
the masculine half of the human race
are shadowed with perplexity. They
don't know the shops, and the clerks
in the-shops pity their ignorance be
cause they do not know what a wo
man wants. Of some things a wo
man never has enough-fine hand
kerchiefs, curious bits of jewelry, silk
stockings, and kid gloves. Neither
does her soul grow weary of dainty
bits of bric-a-brac, of quaint silver
teaspoons, nor of curious brass can
dlesticks and lamps. no matter how
thick they may stand about. Women
always like etchings, too, or a good
print, no matter how small they may
be. So, also, with a bit of statuette
in bronze or marble, or in plaster.
Even if a woman doesn't know about
these things she is flattered that you
think she does.
Ii she be your mother, or sister, or
your wife, you will not have to keep
tv any of these flattering little fic
tions, but can just give her a sensible,
usefil gift. Give your mother a new
lizard or seal pocket book, or give her
a eiderdown cover for her own bed,
or a pair of fur-lined dressing shoes
for the feet. Then there's a bit of
rea lace for the little gentlewoman,
who will lay it away in rose satchets
and nkup a dozen ways to wear it
be A~ppy in it
Perhaps your sister's leather card
-tase is a little worn at the edges, or
she's lost her visiting list book. If
isbe has setUp her afternoon tea table
give her a copper kettle or a wrought
iron crane. U she hasn't set -up the
Aea table, giye her one in bamboo,
with the cunning little tea stool that
goswith it. If she hasn't a triple
dressing mirror, give her that by all
means; there's nothing in all the
wrld that comforts and sustains a
woman's soul like being able to see
er back hair and her eyes and her
file all at onces Or there's a party
ostrich feather one if you can,
&gauze one if you can't-or a big
black Spanish lace scarf to wear
bout-her head of an evening. You
man give your sister or your wife a
lDesden china box for her dressing
Stalwith a big powdery puff inside
of it or a blue deft tray for hairpins,
- or a little china night lamp that will
Sbtrn ten hours and has a screen be
bre the flame.
If your wife spends your money
anxiously and thriftily, just go and
by her what she will call "a foolish
gif, ~ er. " She

Make the gift useful, but not too
useful; prty, but not expensive;1im
yet delicately personal.
A Very Sad Story.
ochn B. Gough tells tlhe following:
aA rninisterof the gospel told me of
- eis of the most thrilling incidents I
2hste heard inmyhlfe. A member of
ma eongregation came home for the
first time in his life intoxicated, and
his boy met him on the door-step,
clapping his hiands and exclaiming,
apahas come home!' He seized
S4hi7boy by the shoulder, swung him
.around,staggered, and fell in the hall.

not see him,' 'Stand out of my way.
I will see my boy.' To prevent con
fusion I took him to the child's bed,
andes I turned down the sheet and
showed him the corpse, he uttered a
wild shriek, 'Ah my, child!' That
minister said furtlier to me: 'One
ogafter that he was brought from a
lnatic asylum to hie side by side
with his wife in the grave, and I at
ended his funeral.' The minister of

The best thing in this world is to
know how to do things and be wil
ling to make one's knowledge availa
ble. A shelf in the corner of a rather
bare bed-room destitute of a ward
robe is the difference between com
fort and discomfort. If it is neatly
made, stained, and put up, and a
pretty curtain, no matter how cheap,
hung in front of it, it is a thing of
beauty as well as comfort. The pow
er to shape, smooth, and put up a
shelf is of inestimable value in a home.
Two rounded shelves, one large, fitted
and clamped, the other small and set
above it, for an inkstand, makes a
capital writing desk. It is becoming
the fashion now to use the corners of I
cupboards, as in the old times, and a
handy boy or man or girl who knows
the use of tools can add immeasura- (
bly to the quaint appearance and in
dividuality of the home by adding
these corner closets and cupboards;
by putting up brass hooks where
needed; by acquiring a bracket or a
picture; aiding in the acquisition of
curtains; or making the cushion for
a chair or a lounge.-Cor. Home
ARmLNGs A CHURcH SOcL4BLE.-Do

the labor and the responsibility. Let C
those who are active in other depart
ments of church work find the even
ing restful. Give the Sunday-school
superintendant an easy chair and the
sexton an eitra plate of ice cream.
Each woman in the congregation F
should feel that it is her duty to in
crease the interest in the success of
the evening. She should invite a shy
neighbor, urge a sad one, or accom
pany a lonely one to the sociable, and
introduce her to at least one friendly
soul. I speak of women especially
because theirs seems to be the privi
lege of guiding and controlling social
life generally. Those who take the
place of hosts for the evening may
find use for all the tact and ingenuity
they have. A word here, a cordial
handshake there, an introduction
which promises a congenial acquain -
tance, a skilfully managed interrup
tion when a tete-a-tete is too pro
longed-it is not a place for getting
into a cozy enrner with your partica
lar friend, all cliques should be brok
en up--these are what makes a host
ess in her own parlor a success, and
these will make the leaders in church
society successful.-Mrs. Lyman Ab
bott in Ladies' Home Journal.
A Pnrrrr A,D INEXPEsIvE BED
sPRFmA.-Most women are fond of fan
cy work, but not every farmer's busy t
wife can find the time to make daixty
home decorations; and, if they would
not have their homes quite bare of t
those little touches of beauty so dear
to the feminine heart, it becomes nec
essary for farmers wives more than
others to devise ways of producing
effect at small cost of time and labor.
Usually it is well to make articles at
once useful and ornamental, and of
materials that will retain their beauty
during their period of usefulness,
leaving the frail, perishable finery to
such as have unlimited time and
means at their disposal. Many per
sons have made beautiful bedspreads
of bleached muslin squares outlined
pjle iy ar;but they required
more time than I could well devote to
that purpose. Besides, bleached mus
lin would not: be sufficiently durable
on a bed in such constant,
and often rough use, as the
one for which I wanted a cover, it
being "mother's bed," and the refuge
of the wee ozies when tired or cross.
I therefore made a good-size sheet of
good quality unbleached muslin, faced
it on the right aide with a broad band
of turkey-red calico, feather-stitched
down with medium-coarse white
crochet cotton. I then stamped a 8
large, bold design in the center, and
a trailing one in each corner, and with 1
No. 10 red floss proceeded to outline
the pattern in plain, running stitch.
When done it was much prettier than
Ibhad thought it would be. It had a
sort of brocaded effect, as though the
pattern were woven in. The work re- p
quired less than one-third the time
and only about two- thirds as much 9
floss, and will wear much better than
if done in the outline stitch. S

Not Luck, But Work.
Twenty clerks in a store, twenty hands
in a printing office, twenty apprentices in a
shipyard, twenty young men in a town, all
want to get on in the world, and axpeet to
do so, says an old merchant:
"One of the clerks will become partner,
and make a fortune; one of the compositors
will own a newspaper and become an influ-:
ential citizen; one of the apprentices will'
become a master builder; one of the vil
lagers will get a handsome farm, and live -
like a patriarch--but which one is the lucky ~
individual? Lucky ! There is no luck
about it. T1he thing is almost as certain as
the rule of three. The young fellow who
will distance his competitors is lie who
masters his business, who preserves his in
tegrity, who lives cleanly and pur~ely, who
devotes his leisure to the argnisition of
knowledge, who gains friends by d serving
them, and who saves his spare money.
There are some ways to fortune shocrter than
this dusty old highway, but the staunch A
men all go this road."

"Adamant" Wall Plaster
-IS - I. i
Best Material for Walls and Ceilings Ever Put Be
fore the Public.
The only thing about a building that has not improved for over 1,000
'ears is lime plaster. But there is no excuse hereafter for falling ceilings,
rumbling walls, broken and defaced decorations. ADAMANT is not a
,uess work mixture of lime, hair, and sand: it is a machine made mortar,
ontaining no lime: it comes dry in bags ready to be used at anylseason by
nixing with water only. Any mason can apply it: bursting pipes or leaky
oofs will not effect it. It's the best known fire resisting material in the
vorld, and it is impervious to disease germs.
