We all turned and looked at her. She
xvas a wan woman, with dark, sad eyes
a Ld white hair, placed smoothly over a
Lrow that denoted intellect.
"When I married a drunkard I

continued. "I was younjr, and oh.

Titer.? is not a your.;; girl in this build

has a drunkard in her family; then
perhaps, she knows how deeply the

she loves and is allied to a drunkard,
whether father, husband, brother or
son. Girls, believe mo when I tell you
that to marry a drunkard, to love a
drunkard, is the crown of all misery. I

her hair. I am not forty years old,

that my little girls were in danger. I

to be endowed with superhuman

The arrival of a new Yanderbilt
grandchild points again to the prolific
record of this dynasty of great wealth.
With the Yanderbilts, at least, there is
no hint of the race suicide charged
generally against the rich. It is a
family notable for early and fruitful
Commodore Cornelius Yanderbilt,
who died in 1S77. left twelve children.
His eldest son, William II.. dying In
ISSo, left eight, and the eldest grand
son, Cornelius, who died in 1891), six.
The old Commodore has had forty
great-great-grandchildren. They form
a genealogical exhibit which may be
compared for fecundity with that of
the early Dutch and Puritan colonists,
whose large broods furnish frequent
texts for' homilies on race degenera
tion. Tliis newcomer, an Elliot F. Shcp-
ard granddaughter, is born to a double
heritage of wealth and brains, her
mother having gained fame as the
prize essayist of the woman's law class
of the University of New York. Is
there any Yanderbilt child who is not
born to at least moderate wealth? A
casual examination of the family tree
shows none. It is a race distinction

UTa Joy oi Workkg.
Pleasures of Which the Producer of the
Present is Deprived.
15y Caroline L. Hunt.
HE producer of old had pleasures of which the producer of the pres
ent knows not. He had the quiet and safety and healthfitluess of a
small shop. He had common Interest with fellow-workers and ap
prentices in village polities or in thurcli affairs. Best of till, per
haps, there was a personal quality In Ids work because it was done
for friends or for acquaintances, and an ever-present sense of Its im
port a nee because it met needs which he had seen and recognized, and
which his own manner of life, similar to that of the consumer and on
the same social plane, prepared him to understand. lie had, for exam
ple, possibly known for month.! that his neighbor was saving money
with which to hire him to make the chest of drawers upon which he was work
ing, and there was a zest and a delight in his labor because he knew just how
much she needed the piece of furniture, Just where it was to stand and just
what purpose it was to serve. The favorable conditions cf his work, the pleas
f.nler surroundings, the personal quality cf labor, the feeling of lis direct use
fulness were intensified in case of the housewife who worked in her own
house with and for those she loved.
Now all ij. changed. The factory hand spends his working day In a
great, dingy shop with the maddening of the machinery in his ears. His asso
ciates are strangers with whom he has little or nothing in common besides his
work. He labors for an indefinite, far-away consumer whose manner of life
is unknown to him. He has for this consumer neither ihe fellow-feeling which
comes from sharing life in the same community, nor its only substitute, the
ability which comes from broad education and from travel to project oneself
in imagination across space and to put oujKeif in the place of a slraiioc;' and
to realize his needs. The Chautauquan.

ica, or any part of it, is uuhcult. Ahnouga tney know that the
country Is much larger than the United States, they look upon it
as being all alike a country of long, dark winters, fields of ice
and snow, and barren wastes. In truth, within Arctic and sub
Arctic America there is much diversity of climate. And in this
beautiful summer-land of Alaska, there are in midsummer end
less fields of beautiful plant life. Many times 1 have left my
camp at the foot of the mountains, and passing through a little nu-ukw where
a variety of wild grasses waved their tops above my head, I would commence
to climb among the dense, tangled, and almost tropical jungle of alders, where
grew several varieties of the most beautiful ferns.
Reaching the upper limits of the alders, great, waving fields of the purple
lupine and dainty red columbine covered acres and acres of the high, rolling
hills. Among them, wild celery end wild parsnip grew many feet high, and
other luxuriant foliage plants gave my surroundings an almost tropical ap
pearance. A little farther, many little ponds grew beautiful, yellow lilies,
with their great leaves resting on the surface cf the water, and the purple
Iris bordered the shores.
Still higher came the yellow sunflowers, white and purple daisies in endless
fields, and higher yet, violets, pinks, forget-me-nots, buttercups and bluebells,
and dozens and dozens of dainty, blossoming plants in many colors.
Purple is the predominating color, then white and yellow and blue and
pink dividing honors. But few red ilowcrs were seen. I have traveled many
miles where every foot of my way Avas one grand profusion of beautiful
flowers in many varieties. Scribner's.

A Look Into the future.
By President Roosevelt.
E have every right to take a just pride in the great deeds of
our forefathers; but Ave show ourselves unworthy to bo their
descendants if Ave make what they did an excuse for our lying
supine instead of an incentive to the effort to show ourselves
by our acts worthy of them. In the administration of city, State
and Nation, in the management of our home life and the conduct
of our business and social relations, we are bound to show cer
tain high and line qualities cf character under penalty of seeing
the Avhole heart of our civilization eaten out while, the body
We justly pride ourselves on our marvellous material prosperity, and such
prosperity must exist in order to establish a foundation upon Avhieh a higher
life can be built; but unless Ave do in very fact build this higher life thereon,
the material prosperity itself will go for but very littie. Noav, in I'M?,, in the
altered conditions, Ave must meet the changed and changing problems Avith
the spirit shown by the men Avho In 1S03 and in the subsequent years gained,
explored, conquered and settled this vast territory, then a desert, now filled j
Avith thriving and populous States.
The old days Avere great because the men Ariio lived in them had miguty
qualities; and Ave must make the new days great by showing fhese .same qual
ities. We must insist upon courage and resolution, upon hardihood, tenacity
and fertility in resource; Ave must Insist upon the strong virile, virtues, and
aa'0 must Insist no less upon the virtues of self-restraint, self-mastery, regard
for the rights of others;we must ehow our abhorrence of cruelty, brutality and
corruption, In public and in private life alike.
If Ave come short in any of these qualities we shall measurably fail, and if,
as I believe Ave surely shall, Ave develop these qualities in the future to an .
even greater degree than in the past, then In the century now beginning we
shall make of this republic the freest and most orderly, the most just and
mighty Nation which has ever come forth from the womb of time. ;
