It Is surprising the amount of money
that Is squandered for tobacco. Men
who have considerable trouble supplying
their family with suffletent food to keep
the soul and body together, will use
tobacco at all hazard. The following
item from a gentleman who claims to
know whereof he speaks, as he was a
witness to the transaction, gives an
inkling of where the money goes to:
"Not long ago I called at a county store.
Soon after a lady of very limited means
entered with a small basket of articles
he wished to exchange for merchandise.
Her goods were a small roll of butter
and one dozen and a half of eggs, both
of which came to ninety cents. She
made the following purchases: Half a
pound of coffee, 12 centa; one pound of
sugar, 10 cents; one box of matches, !t
cents; one spool of thread, 8 cents; one
yard and a half of calico, 12 cents.
This came to 45 cents. The remaining
45 cents wore spent for tobacco for her
husband, who she said, was out of the
weet." The woman almost split tho
pennies in purchasing the necessary
articles that she might get tobacco for
It used to be considered the solemn
duty of parents to whip their children.
Peoplo who had no intelligent Ideas
bout the rearing of boys and girls
seemed to think that, if they
applied the rod vigorously now and
then they would grow up to be con
scienctous men and women without any
special efforts on the part of the parents
to impress upon them the great
advantages of virtue over vlco. "Spare
the rod and spoil the child," with thorn
was a sacred maxim. Many of them
believed it to be a quotation from
Scripture, and thought as they whacked
their offspring across the back, that
they were obeying an injunction from
the Bible. The quotation is from
Butler's "Hudibras," and reads
Love In hoy by poets ntyl'd.
Then Hpare the rod nnd spoil the child.
Whipping children is like Ben Butler's
recipe for making cakes out of a mixture
of corn moal and sawdust, which
concluded as follows: "N. B. The less
sawdust used the better the cakes will
be." Children should be constantly
taught the consequences of thotr actions.
They should learn that virtue is its own
reward and that folly brings Its own
punishment just as suroly as the night
follows the day. Punxsutawney Spirit.
There are times when speech Is
unseasonable, but there are also times
when silence is wrong and even cruel.
If there is much said that should never
have been breathed, there is also much
that ought to have free utterance which
is never spoken. It is impossible to
estimate the amount of happiness and
benefit that is suppressed by this
untimely silence. A group of persons
are discussing the character of one
known, perhaps, only slightly to most
of then). Some one speaks disparag
ingly of him, or relates some incident
tending to lessen him in their estima
tion. Another who is present knows
this to be incorrect, but, instead of
vindicating him from the false charge
says nothing. He may be shy of
expressing himself; he may persuade
himself that it is not his affair; he may
dislike to appear antagonistic; what-
' ever be his reasons, he does the absent
one an irretrievable injury by a sllenoe
that must be deemed cowardly. The
unfavorable impression which he might
have corrected sinks into the memories
of those who have heard it, and is
probably never entirely effaced. Had
he simply uttered what he knew to be
' true at the moment of need, all this
would have been prevented. In general,
when the character or conduct of any
absent one is assailed, it is the path of
kindness to refute it, if possible; or, if
this cannot be, to present some point in
which he exoels, and which may turn
the scale of esteem in his favor. There
is in each one such mixture of good and
-' bad, admirable and blamable, that the
way he is judged largely depends upon
where the emphasis is laid. Therefore,
j all good-will and kindness demand that,
J while we bury his faults in oblivion,
we should speak freely and fully of his
A"Lalles'Aid Soctety"lsan Important
part of a church organization, writes
Mrs. Lyman Abbott In a careful
prepared paper on "Conducting a Ladles'
Aid Society,"' in the December Ladies'1
llnnie Journal. And It should not
consist of a few exceptionally devoted
or energetic persons. Every woman
who is a momlx-r of the church, and a
largo proportion, If not all, of the women
In tho congregation, should bo Its
efllelent members. Every detail of
attack ti)on evil, nnd every detail of
work forstrengthlng the good, should be
represented by a committee. Foreign
mission, homo mission, hospital mission
kindergartens, rescue work, working
girls' associations, every phase of
Christian philanthropy nnd religious
activity whieh can possibly lie employed
In the church, should have Its represen
tative In this society. All the women
niemliers and, as fnr as possible, nil
those attending the services of the
church, should bo enrolled. A list ns
largo as may bo of tho object which It
would be iMwslblo for them to consider
as suitable for their work should bo
made. A chairman of executive ability
should bo elected for each object.
Every woman in the congrcgat ion should
lie oxHcted to attach herself to one of
these organizations, and report to ono
of these chairmen. Be It little or much,
she should do something in its Interests;
even a "shut In" may send her world of
suggestion, and add her ml to of
encouragement though she have nolther
silver nor strength to give. The
president of the society should see
that each new comer In the parish
is at once Informed of this plan, nnd
Invited and even urged to attach herself
to some committee.
