Al of the presidents of the United States
have been iu the habit of mingling freely
with the people.but the danger of this pro
cedure was very emphatically pointed out
in the tragedy of a few months ago. It is
also dangerous to trifle with unknown med
icines for indigestion, dyspepsia, flatulency,
constipation, biliousness or malaria, fever
and ague. The safest medicine to take is
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. It will posi
tively cure these diseases. Try and see.

There is too much gambling in society.

By REV. R. S. Mac ARTHUR,
f For Thirty Years Pastor of Calvary Baptist
Church, New York.
ciety that the evil is most prevalent. Gambling of any kind cannot be
spoken against too strongly and gambling in the social circle is, in
many respects, disreputable. WHEN A LADY WILL USE THE
ATTRACTIONS OF HER HOME TO INDUCE YOUNG MEN
TO GAMBLE THEREIN AND THUS ROB THEM OF THEIR
MONEY SHE IS MEANER THAN IS THE PROPRIETOR OF
A PROFESSIONAL GAMBLING HELL.
How women who so attract and rob young men can muster up
courage enough to meet the families of such young men in social life
is a mystery which I am glad I cannot explain. I should be glad to
see such men and women punished to the utmost. It would be bet
ter still for them to be shamed out of their meanness.
I regret to say that I hold many churches responsible, to a large
extent, for the mania for gambling. These churches at fairs and en
tertainments encourage games of chance to pay, church debts. This
should not be permitted. It is contended that the end being good the
means employed are not bad. But this is not the doctrine of re'igloji
ists such a doctrine would cover almost any sin. I am frequently told
of cases in which parents put up money to be won by their children
in games of cards to be played in their homes.
These parents take a terrible risk with the future
happiness not only of their children but of them-
SOCIAL GAMBLING CAN BE STOPPED

PROPER TIME TO MARRY.
Xenrly All "Self-Made" Men Took to
Themselves Wives on $1,000
a Year or Less.
Why should lovers defer their mar
riage a day longer than the time
when, as far as we mortals can dis
cern the future, the prospect of a
comfortable home is reasonably as
sured? asks Cyrus C. Adams, in Ains
lee's. It is senseless to wait for the
coming of affluent da3rs. 'Their lives
should be united, and each in his way
should help to bring about the ad
vent of easier times if they are ever
to come. It is as foolish to wait for
a larger income than is really re
quired as it is for parents to slave
and drudge that their children may
enjoy a degree of affluence they have
never known. This is the rock upon
which the French nation has 'split.
They are a frugal and a thrifty peo
ple. It is interesting to know that
many of the tasteful, artistic and
costly products of France are made
almost exclusively for the foreign
trade. Two-thirds of the best china
ware of Limoges, for example, comes
to the United States. A well-to-do
Frenchwoman is likely to use a prep
aration of rice flour as a cosmetic,
leaving the delicate perfumes and
other-toilet articles of Paris for her
American and British sisters who are
willing to spend more money for such
things. But the rich father, unfor
tunately, conceives it to be his duty
to leave his children richer than him
self; if, on the other hand, he be a
poor tiller of the soil, it is disgrace
ful not to educate his son to a trade
or a profession, so that the family
name may have a higher place in the
social scale. This deplorable ambi
tion fixes upon the family a burden
almost too great to be borne, and
parents deliberately restrict the num
ber of their children. In large dis
tricts, particularly in northern
France, families of more than two
children are rare. Many of the young
people, seeing the hard lives their
parents lead, defer their own mar
riages in order to better their for
tunes, till at last even the desire to
marry is extinguished. Parents and
children of all lands may well heed
the lesson in sociology that France is
now teaching. .
Nearly all our self-made men, lead

ally have very pronounced views on
the inadequate knowledge of" the
value of money and how to take care
of it possessed by the majority of
young men and women. The views of
these 3-oung persons as to the
amount of income upon which they
may prudently marry varj', of course,
according to the circumstances in
which they have lived. Many an in
telligent girl who vorks in New
York kitchens has no doubt what
ever that she and the steady, indus
trious fellow she intends to marry
will have a comfortable home on $12
to $14 a week. A penniless German
school teacher who came to Philadel
phia when a young man and who in
his old age lives in New York on the
rentals of apartment houses bought
with $300,000 he earned slowly in
manufacturing, asserted the other
day that $1,000 to $1,500 a year in
New York would give to young mar
ried couples of refinement a com
fortable home, books, music and
amusements and everything they
might need for the rational enjoy
ment of life. This gentleman has the
German ideas of thrift. There is
scarcely any doubt that any man and
wife, gifted with an ability to dis
burse dollars to the very - best ad
vantage, would be able to realize his
idea of comfortable married life on a
A Movable Holiday.
The day on which Brazil annually
celebrates republican principles has
come to be a movable feast, dependent
upon the popular sentiment toward the
United States. July 14th, the day of
the fall of the Bastille, was originally
adopted as the official jubilee day, but
the Brazilians incline more and more
to shift the celebration to our own
Fourth of July. This year, so friendly
has Brazil felt toward this country,
that the press, pulpits, government
and popular enthusiasm combined to
keep the Fourth. The stars and stripes
with portraits of Washington and Mc
Kinley, were everywhere present, rep
resentatives of the government visited
the United States ships in the
harbors and the legations on land,
military bands serenaded United
States officials, and electric lights on
government buildings outlined the
arms of the United States and Brazil
by side. More and more Pan-America
is becoming a fact as well as a high
sounding title for expositions and con
gresses. Youth's Companion.

morning at breakfast her mamma saw a

Peruna is such a remedy. If taken
at the first symptom of catching cold
it heals the catarrhal condition before
it becomes established and makes im

Should the cold be neglected and re
