MAN IN 'HIS HOME
Mn. GRISTLETON PHILOSOPHIZES
Thinks There Are Few Who Are
Sweet Abroad and Sour When

"You know," said Mr. Orlstloton,
"when 1 hoar It said ofn man that
ho's fjood as pio to everybody else,
but you ought to sco how ho treats
his folks, I don't sol It down right
away that tho man go described mii3t
bo necessarily a bruto or u sneak.
You see, If ho Is going to show peev
ishness anywhere, homo Is tho proper
place Tor it; theio It can do his family
and himself tho leaut harm. It is es
sential to his success lu lire that ho
should put up a good front, and show
a smiling face to tho world
"As ii niattor of ruct tho terms nro
contradictory, Tor a muii can scarcely
bo permanently ill tempeied at homo
and yot present even a veneer of
grace sulllclont to deceivo abroad. A
man Is likely to reveal himself at all
times for what ho really is: to be.
In tho main, cither good or bad every
where; but If ho havo a streak of
weakness In htm, why, thnt I would
prefer ho Bhotild keep for home, and
so, 1 think would his family.
"They want him to mako a fjood
Impression In tho world, to appc.ir
everywhere to advantage, and thoy
nie leady to put up with IiIb shortcom
ings, to Inako allowances, and attor all
they don't havo to mako so many,
and they know his ways and they
enn charm away his crossness easily
"Tho truth In that whllo thoro may
bo nion who nro aalntrf abroad, nnd
savages at homo there nio not many
such; most men are pretty decent,
and these stories wo hear about men
who aro so goofl to other peoplo and
so mean to their own aro likely to ho
without any real foundation or grout
ly oxaggoratcd or bom out of n
".tones' family, for Instanco, know
him for what ho Is, a stioug, vigorous,
able man who keeps his tomper and
behaves himself adiulrnhly In tho
world, though thoro ho has much to
contond with; nnd thoy aro willing,
more than willing, that ho shou.ld tor
got hla troubles nnd oven lose Ills
tempor occasionally at homo If ho
Wants to. It gives them an opportuni
ty to sootho nnd comfort him and bo
gqod to him and strengthen him. They
not only don't mind, but thoy really
llko him to bo natural and human;
thoy nro not disturbed because ho has
somo fallings like tho test of us, and
thoy know ho'll bo sereno and strong
again In a minute.
"So I take llttlo stock In tho stories
wo hear occasionally of this man or
that who Is suld to bo good as plu to
strangers but a sour chap with hla
own. You can sot It down for a fact
that tho man who has the strength
and courage and self-control to bear
himself llko a pian abroad through
tho day is, us u rule, and dcsplto any
transient pettinesses that ho may
thero rovoul, pretty suro to bo a man
whom thoy nro right glad to seo at
night at homo."
To Tell Hofe'8 Character.
,It Is easy to tell a horse's character
by his nose, according to an army
oillcer. If the pronto has n gentle
ourvo and at the Bamo time tho ears
are pointed and sensitive, the animal
may bo doponded on as being gentlo
and at the same time hlgh-spltltod. Oiv
the other hand, If the horse hits a
dent In the middle of his iioao It Is
safe to set hltn down as treacherous
and vicious, A horse with a slight
concavity In tho pronto wljl bo easily
scaled and neods coaxing, while ono
that, droops his eat a Is upt, to bo
both lazy and violpua.

A century ago London wns noted
for Its coaching Inns. Today only one
romalns In London proper to recall
the gayety of coaching parties that as
sembled In tho comfortablo parlors
for an ovcnlng of pleasure. Geoigo's
Inn, tho last of tho famous taverns
where tho nobility of Kngland gath
ered In years gono by was probably
tho most popular that lined tho road
ways of the English capital. It was
through his association with tho peo

Charles Dickens hegnn to nttract wide

writer. More than three score years
ago he was a familiar figure when rev-,

met atr. Pickwick and tho various
characters he Immortalized In "Pick

Into popular favor an a humorist and
closo student of character. Tho at
tractiveness of tho old Inn Is stilt
maintained nt a high standard, and It
is today n favoilto stopping place rr
trnelers nnd coaching parties. Noth

to dim the memories of tho past. Tho

Ohio bought a small tract of land and
erected a church building upon It,
says tho Youth's Companion. Then
tho question ot Innuranco camo up.
Mr. Slpes, the wealthiest member,
who bad contributed morn than half
tho money needed for tho now struc
ture, declared that ho did not bellevo
In insurance "This Is tho Lord's
building. He'll take care of it," ho
said. His view prevailed and thero
was no Insurance In a few weeks
tho building was struck by lightning
and almost totally consumed by fire.
Another one was erected. Mr. Sines
contributing tho greater portion of
tho fund as before. This time (ho de
mand wns ulmcvit unanimous that It
be insured, but Mr. Slpes again ob
jected on tho name ground. "If It
burns down again, brethren," ho said,
' I'll agree to rebuild it myself." Again
he carried his point. In less than a
month tho now church was struck by
lightning again, and although strenu
ous efforts were mado to save It, tho
loss wus almost total. "There must
b somo reason for this, brethren,"
said Hrother Slpes. "I nm going to
tlnd out what It Is." Thereupon ho
employed a force or men to sink a
shart on tho alto ot tho twice des
troyed church. Within a fow days a
rich vein of Iron oro was found andi
tho church property was sold for
many times tho amount needed to buy
land In another locality and build
again. "1 tell you. brethren," said
Hrother Slpes, "11 pays to trust tho
Lord. Ho's a great doal better busi
