The Best Side.
Everybody has a be3t side, and every
body has an uijlyside; some people have
several ugly sides. Tnere ae th se so

on any side. Bat these are rare.
The ideal gentleman never forgets what
is due to himself, never forgets what i's
duo to others. So of the ideal lady. We
do sometimes find these ideal personages
in real life, but rarely. Ordinary
people make up, or try to, for coarseness
in the kitchen by refinement in the
parlor, and are more courteous to their
betters than is due, that they may atone
for scant courtesy to their inferiors, or
those they deem such. There are very
few natures so purged, so disciplined,
so chastened by religion, or any other
force, that upon greater or less provocation
the unhauowed passion within
them will not glare forth from their
eyes, crimson in their cheeks, tremble
in their limbs, quiver in their voices or
gnaw silently at their vitals. For within
us all slumber or lie in ambush waiting
a favorable opportunity to spring
forth at least ten deadly sins forbidden
in the m Decalogue. However perfectly
one may seem outwardly to conform to
the requirements of high morality and
lofty virtue, where lives the human being
but daily needs to utter the petition,
"Lead lis not into temptation, but deliver
us from evil," but needs to smite
upon his breast and exclaim, "God be
merciful to me, a sinner Pn
Alike beneath the polished exterior ol
conventional courtesy and the rough
exterior of "no manners at all11 is the
ceaseless conflict of passion, interest,
duty, ambition, conscience, waging; in
my lady's elegant boudoir, and in the
attic devoted to mania! servants. The
conflict is one, though in different parts
of the field , one under velvet and calico,
under broadcloth and jean.
No appetite or passion of the human
mind or body is in itself wrong. Every
one was planted there by the beneficent
Creator for the good of the possessor,
and, rightly indulged and exercised, results
in jjood. But without the possibility
or vice there can be no virtue.
The greatest meh thai have lived havre
been men of large appetites and passions,
who have brought them under
control, who have harnessed them to the
chariot of reason, subjugated them to
the yoke, made them obedient to check
and rein. We have inspired authority
for the fact that even the Spotless One
was "tempted in all parts like as we
It is not strange that hearts burning
with hate, inflamed with resentment,
torn by conflcting passion, or wearied
by sorrow, by ill-health, by bafiled
hopes and disappointed expectations,
should sometimes unconsciously or
carelessly permit the gae of the passerby.
With such hearts we are coming:
into more or less intimate contact all
the .time, and how to make that contact
kindly and hetpful is a question'always
important to the lover of his kind. We
may exaggerate the woes of others by
our bearing and manner, or we may
soothe, Restrain, heal the wounded
heart. We are all our "brother's keeper,"
whether he accept the trust or not. U
we reject it, wetoo may hear the voice
of his blood crying to God from the
The mother is continually called on to
come into most intimate contact
with the various members of her household,
to compose disputes, to harmonize
conflicting interests, .to soothe perturbed
spirits, to help them that have
lost control of themselves to regain it,
to help those who have never gained
control of themselves to acquire it, to
subdue the refractory, to guide the unruly,
to disipline the disobedient, to
distil tram all the various oamoler ele
ments thrown into her cuciblb that divine
essence we call Home. " She, and

isthe mirror in which her household
will glass themselves. As she is, such
will they unconsciously shape themselves.
The showing of her best side to
them will infallibly compel'them to show
their best side to her. And how can she do
those she loves and would serve a greater
kindness than by habitually calling out
the best there is in them ?
It is wise to seek the companionship
of individuals who put us on our bost
behavior, who call out the best impulses
and aspirations and purposes
within us, and to avoid those who
kindle or quicken our consciousness of
lower and baser impulses. Solitude is
infinitely better tlian bad companionship.
But with the multitude of cheap,
reprints of our best authors one never
need bo alone or in unworthy company.
N. Y Tribune.
I thought I might as well drop in and
see how they run a weekly down in
South C irolina. and a little darky piloted
me up one street and down another
until wo halted before a stairway over
which hung a sign of "2e Herald."
The office was up four flights of stairs,
of course, and 1 had only reached the
landing of the first when a hunk of composition
cut from svme old roller whizzed
past my head. There was nothing
strange in that, however, as all well-
regulated oflices keep half a dozen of
these hunks lying around as weapons of
defense, and I prdssed on. At the head
of the second flight I looked up the dark
way and thought I saw a man with a
gun in his hands. All weekly newspapers
having any influence always keep
at least one lying around to intimidate
poets, and so I went whistling
along up the third flight. Then I was
certain that I saw a min, and certain
that the muzzle was looking down upon
me. Som'e editors stand at the head of
the fourth flight and practice at target-shooting
to rest their wearv brains, and
I was wondering where the bull's eye
wa3 when I heard a click ! click ! and a '
voice called out:
" Stand ! or you are a dead man ! "
No man who thinks anything of his
clothes will ever be found dead on a
stairway leading to a printing office. I
came to a halt, and the voice continued :
" Throw up your hands and go down
stairs, or 141 blow your brains into the
1 didn't believe he would, but as I
couldn't prove it the best way was to
obey his liitle request. I had just got
back to the hotel when in came the editor
and the foreman and the devil and
two comps, a;id they all began to talk
at once. They we o expecting a lightning
sort of a politician up those stairs
at that very time, and if he once got up
ho was to open fire from a revolver and
have over the remains of
the Herald. It was a mistake, and they
were deeply grieved, and wo had a .
lemonade together, and the man with
the gun shook hands again and whispered:
"Boy! I had my finger on the trigger
and a dead aim on your head, and if
you had lifted one foot an inch high to
come further up I'd have killed you as
dead as a hammer I"
After that I always sent four boys,
one after another, up stairs with my
card and a written declaration that I
was not loaded. Cot. Detroit Frc
