of food and .dress when cheaper ones
would be in every way better and
more serviceable. Especially in reg

great want of economy. A little

qualities of food, the amount and
kind of nutritious-matter they con

and the best way of cooking, would

How to Grow Beautiful.
She knew it was necessary to be
come beautiful in order to be con
sidered attractive, and so she made
the art of beautifying a study. She
felt it wNer to be plump and hearty
than to be thin and delicate. To this
end she knew good health was essen
tial. She had suffered from back
aches, sideaches and bearing down
pains, and was restless until she
found the medicine she needed. It
improved her appetite and digestion.
Her habits became regular. Her
tlesh increased and became more firm
and solid. Her complexion became
clear and beautiful and free from
pimples. Her lips grew red and her
cheeks grew rosy, she did not know
ache or pain. Exercise gave her
pleasure and she became the life of
her companions. She could ride a
tricycle lur many miles ami never
seemed to grow weary. Her laugh
ter whs catching and all the younj

Some one has said that boasting of
what you will do is as unwise as to
advertise your prosperity. If your
plans' are good ones, some one else
will catch them up and be in the
field in time to devide the advantage
with you. If they are nt good, you
may be certain no one will point out
the errors in them, 90 that you cans
not possibly gain aught by your
communicativeness. The men who
listen well, and are not in ha'ste to
impart their own secrets, are the ones
who generally get along in the
' v ' , '" Success. . '
There is nothing so abject as the
worship of mere success, unless, in
deed, it be the 'worship of mere
wealth. There is nothing lower than
to admire and flatter a man simply
because he has got on, because he has
carried his point, because he has
come to be talked about in the wav
n which he wished to be talked
about, and to think scorn of others
whose merits and efforts may have
een equal to his, or very likely
much greater, but whose merits and
efforts have from some euuse or other,

The secret of success in life is to
keep busy, to be persevering, patient,
and untiring in the pursuit or calling
you are iollowin". The busy ones
may now and then- make mistakes,
but it is better to risk these than to
be idle and inactive. Keep doing,
whether it be at work or seetlng re
creation. Motion is life, and the
busiest are the happiest. Cheerful,
active labor is a blessing. An old
philosopher says : "The firefly only
shines when on the wing : so it is

we darken. "

The Head and the Brain.
Dr. Starr, of London, says that it is
impossible to draw any conclusion
from the size or shape of the head as
to the extent or surface of the brain,
and so as to the mental capacity. It
is absurd to judge of the brain sur
face by either the size of the head or
the extent of the superficial irregular
surface which is covered by the skull,
without taking into consideration the
number of folds or the depth of creas
es. "For a little brain with many
deep folds may really, when spread
out have a larger surtace than a
large brain with few shallow folds. "

Why Take Offsnce ?
Something to drink and u good
cigar are with some men leading es
sentials toward sociability. Other
men have a natural antipathy to both,
and yet can be sociable and polite.
The following anecdott,iIlustrates the
way one gentleman took to teach an
other that such was the case.
Mr. Perry. was an old Southern
gentleman, exceedingly polite. He
would go out of his way at Hny time
to avoid offending a neighbor or a
friend. One day a neighbor met him
on the street with :
"Hallo, Mr. Perry! I was just go
ing in to get a drink. Come in and
"Thank you, Mr. , I don't
care for anything," was the answer.
"But come in and take something,
just for sociability's sake."
"Now, I want to be sociable, but I
can't drink with you."
"All right, if you don't want to be
sociable, I'll go without drinking,"
growled the friend, and he silently
walked along in the direction in
which Mr. Perry was travelling.
Presently the pair drew near a
drug-sfore, when Mr. Perry broke
out with :
"Mr. , I'm not feeling at all
well today, and I think I'll go in
this drug store and get some custor
oil. Won't you join me V"
"What, in a dose of castor-oil '."'
"Naw; 1 hate the stutf," saying
which, a chill went over the man as
visible in its effects to ,dr. Perry as if
the ague had seized him on the street.
"But I want you to take a glass of
oil with me, just to be sociable, you
The friend still refused, when Mr.
Perry said : "Your sociable whisky
is just as distasteful to me as my so
ciable oil is to you. Don't you think
I've as much reason to be offended
with you as you have with me?"
The pair heartily shook hands; the
dialogue was circulated in Coving
ton, and Mr. Perry was never invited
to drink again.
