Helen Miller Gould is beloved and honored by her countrywomen In un
stinted measure, and the more that her alms-deeds are so unostentatious, as
well as so liberal. It is not Miss Gould's fault that her royally magnificent
gifts are chronicled In the press and talked of by the breakfast-table con
elaves all over the land. She does not court praise nor pose for admiration.
She just goes on her sweet womanly way, scattering her bounty as a prin

lowed her whenever she left her palace.
PARIS IAS A
Chief Feature of the Transvaal Ex

One of the most interesting features
of the Transvaal exhibit at the Paris
Exposition, writes the correspondent
of the Philadelphia Record, Is the Boer
farm, a modest structure copied with
scrupulous exactitude from the orig
Inal near Pretoria.
The roof is of turf, the windows are
narrow and the doors low. There is
no flooring in the interior, and the
threshing floor is of soft earth, into
which the foot of the vis!tor sinks at
every step. There is no ceiling. The

with a table covered in gray linen,

the corner of the frame is a portrait,
cut from a French illustrated paper, of
Colonel Villebols-Mareull, who died in
a battle near Boshof while fighting for
the Boers. Does his portrait adorn
many Boer farmhouses? One may
doubt it, but it was a touching and
gracefulact to put it in the sitting room
of the Boer farm at the Exposition,
above the old harmonium.

the corner of the hearth.
The dwelling does not give us the
impression of being deserted. Doubt
less the farmers who live here are out
for awhile, working in the fields, or
they are hunting or at war. But no,
they have simply gone into the fields,
for here are their rifles and the big
felt hats which they wear whe- on ex
pe4itions at a distance.
At the right are two little rooms
where the young people sleep, arnong a
mass of agricultural implements, har

is a chamber somewhat better fur

The bed, larger than that in the other
rooms, is adorned with cotton print
Close to the door of the farm house
is placed, evidently by deliberate de
sign. a lofty pyramid of gilded plaster,
which represents the quantity of gold
extracted from the mines of the Trans
vaal from 1884 until the outbreak of
the present war with England. At the
foot of this pyramid is a little gilded
cube, representing the volume of
1,000,000 francs in pure gold.
Passing before the yellow and bril
liant pyramid, whose apex is hidden in
the branches of the trees, we come to
another pavilion of the Transvaal ex

Eyeglasss. Need a Bath.
"Half the people who wear glasses
and complain that their sight is gradu
ally diminishing owe the idea to dirty
glasses," remarked an optician. "Spec
tacles and eyeglasses are as much ben
efited by a bath now and then as peo
ple are. It is strange how many peo
ple there are who think that by wiping
their glasses now and then they keep
them elean. The fact is, they want a
bath Just as frequently as does a hn
man being. You see, it is this way.
The face, and especially the eyes, all
the time gives off a fine vapor. This
clings to the glasses and the dust col
lects on them. As soon as they become
clean-that is, apparently clean-the
wearer is satisfied. So the process
goes on. But while wiping the glasses
cleanses them and is necessary, a bath
is also required. Every time the
glasses are wiped a fine film of dirt is
left on them, and this gradually accu
mulates and no wiping will clean it
off. In time this coating gets quite
thick enough to blur the vision, even
though at a glance the glasses may ap
pear clean. When this occurs the sight
is diminished, and they come to me or
some other optician. What they ought
to have done was to give the glasses a
bath in warm water, scrubbing them
with a small toothbrush and soap, and
afterward wiping them. This should

IN MEMORY OF LIVINGSTONE.
Monument to Mark the Site Where the
Oreat Explorer Died.
Funds have been raised in England
to erect a memorial to Dr. Livingstone,
the intention being to mark the site
where the great explorer died with a
permanent monument,to take the place
of the famous tree beneath which hise
heart was buried. It has been decided
that the memorial shall be an obelisk,
twenty feet high, surmonted by a cross.

of the monument, will bear the follow

WOMAN'S SECOND GROWTH.
Her Most Beautifutal and Frtful Years
Are Late in Life.
Since woman is in the main but a
bundle of paradoxes, it is not so sur
prising to hear that a normally healthy
woman is younger, mentally and phys
ically, at 50 than at 40. The reason is
somewhat recondite, but still one to
be rendered in plain words. This re
juvenation comes from a sort of sec
ond growth of nerve tissue, or, more
accurately, a new arrangement of
nerve cells, which takes place com
monly in the decade between 35 and
45. The rearrangement is somewhat
analogous to the root-making of a rose
or a flowering shrub. Almost every
one has noted how the riotous vitality
of the vernal impulse wreaths rose
trees in blossom up to the period of
midsummer. Then, though the bloom
ing continues laggardly, the flowers
are poor and small, as though the tree
were tired of fashioning them and
fretful beneath the strain. By and by,
as August yields to September, the
flowers, though they may be fewer,
swell to more than the glory of spring.
They are truly royal, loose-leafed,long
stemmed, heavy-headed blossoms, full
of every virtue-size, fragrance, color
and endurance. Then the gardener
tells you it is because in the height of
the warm weather the rose struck new
roots, and is full of the rich juices of
a second growth. It is somewhat the
same with fruit trees-which, indeed,
occasionally blossom and let fall crops
of young fruit. Invariably they make
new wood, which, if only it harden
sufficiently, is the best of all wood for
either cuttings or grafts-because, say
the orchardists, "it has more life in
it." Grape vines, too, have a trick of
putting forth new blooms in the fall.
If they chance to be very abundant,

most people spend nearly all their time

Peddlers Voice Their Woes.
Seven men met in a lot the other
afternoon at West Mad!son street and
Homan avenue and discussed their

They were there four hours or more,
and although the police passed the spot
at intervals the seven were not als

man of the party, "we have been
trampled on long enough, and I advo

our condition. Let us form a union
which will be strong enough to com

asked what the particular cause for
complaint amounted to. The person
who was acting as chairman appeared
to be indignant, but drew from his
coat pocket a tin sign bearing the
words, "No Peddlers."
