every one else does, put the coins side

The advantages ot a pocket that has

by every masculine reader. Such a

seamless pocket. The peculiarity of
these (sockets is that they arc woven
complete in one piece. No stitching
or sewing is necessary to make them
rrndy for use, but they arc turned oul

Ab, ha! the advocates of the new
charter are seeking an argument in
favor of their pet scheme by applying
to officials of other cities now tinder
this law, whose citizens are now groan
ing under the excessive taxation im
posed ou them by the very officials the
clique here propose to give as evl
dence. Let us see. Section 1494 Df
the statute, cities of the third class is
"1'oirer of the Council: The Mayor
aud Council of each city governed by
this article shall have the care, man
agement and control of the city antl
its liuances. and shall have power to
enact aud ordain any and all ordin
ances not repugnant to the constitu
tion and laws of this State, and such
as they shall deem expedient for the
good government of the city, the
preservation of peace and good order,
the benefit of trade and commerce,
and the health of the inhabitants
thereof: aud such ordinances, rules
and regulations as may be necessary
to cam-them into effect, and lo modify
ulid repeal the same."
Here we have all power for legisla
tive action not repnguant to constitu
tion and Inws of the Slate. Then citi
zens of Cape (iirardcau if an appeal is
made to officials of other cities under
thh Wholesale charter, you will read
ily perceive the tenor of their answer,

A man's occupation has a great deal
to do with making his facial expres
sion. Studies, or scholarly protessions.
Intellectual pursuit, when coupled
with moral habit?, brighten the fare
and give a superior look. An unself
ish nature, or love of studies or arts
with a bright, plea-ant fare; but on
the contrary, says the New Y'ork
.al'ici; a man may have a face that
does not please any one, because ot
pure selfishness. It may be noticed
that soldiers get a hard, severe look:
laborers look tired: reporters look
inquisitive; mathematicians look stud
ious: judges look grave, and a man
whose homo life is unhappy looks all
broken up. The business often makes
the face. How often wc think thi
man is a butcher, this one a lawyer.
