"When the trumpet's thrilling call upon our
ears shall fall.
And our dust shall throb and quiver, and its
vanished life recall.
"When each hurrying atom seeks its own,

We shall wear the Resurrection Robes that we

Then the threads we sadly spun, and In dark

Trove in the fabric, wishing that the long, hard
task was done.
Shall gleam and glimmer as a mist of lovely
rose and blue.
And the blacker threads of sorrow shall be
made lovely too.
The glimmering glir.ts of gold from a patience
Shall make a pattern sueet and strange, and
beauteous to behold:
And the white of purity shall shine, the tear

As we don our Resurrection Robes upon that
last great day.
O King of Joy and pain, let us not weave in

That, when our task Is finished, within the
Clad in our Robes of Righteousness, we may

11 W. O. FCLLER, JR.
XE OF Mr. Wig
glesworth's friends, a man
who goes out in
when snow lies
on the ground
using a dog and
a gun for that
brought a rab
bit around t o
the house the
and left it,
with his com
M r. Wiggles-
worth, as his wife bore the congealed
animal into the room, its legs standing
stiffly out toward three o'clock.
"It's a rabbit," Mrs. "VYigglesworth
made answer, dubiously; "but I don't
know what to do with it."
"Why," her husband retorted, smart
ly, the way a man speaks to his wife,
"dress it, and make a rabbit pie.
That's the stuff. Mother used to make
'em every week when 1 'was a boy."
When Mr. YViggleswortli was start
ing for the office he looked into the
kitchen. His wife had the frozen rab
bit stretched out on the ironing board,
and was hovering over it with a silver
plated caseknife. There was a look of
sickness on her face that defies de
scription. "What ails ye?" said Mr. Wiggles
worth. "Why don't ye take hold and
skin the thing and have it done with
and not be teetering around on one
foot all day?"
"I I don't just understand how,"
his wife stammered, helplessly. "And
besides, it seems so cruel. I wish Mr.
Bimley had cleaned it himself."
"Ain't that like a woman?" snorted
Mr. Wigglesworth, apostrophizing the
1 ceiling and noticing as he did so
that it needed kalsomining. "Man
gives you a pair of drivng gloves and
you wonder why he didn't throw in a
horse and sleigh. Wish he'd sent a
rabbit pie, don't ye? Might have
thrown in a barrel of flour, if he'd
known what brand you wanted."
"Can't can't you get it ready?" fal
tered Mrs. Wigglesworth, timidly.
"Can't I?" said her husband, loftily,
"I'd like to know if I can't II" lie
g-rabbed the rabbit and sailed out into
Mr. Wigglesworth laid the cold re
mains down on the chopping-block and
'dos't you know where to begin
looked at them reproachfully. He had
a vague recollection of seeing his
father dress a rabbit years ago. Mrs.
Wigglesworth got up on a box and
drew her skirts daintily in.
"That's right," cried Mr. Wiggles
worth, "don't get too near or the ani
mal might kick yon. "Probably he's in
a trance, and when I put the knife
into him he's going to rare up and
break a window."
"Don't you know where to begin?"
-chirped Mrs. Wigglesworth.
"Begin?" echoed her husband, with
intense sarcasm. "Why, I've got to
begin at chapter one, first verse, of
course. Got to start in with a few
preliminary toots on the clarinet.
Wha'd ye suppose? Gimme that
Mrs. Wigglesworth came down from
her perch for an instant, found tha
knife and resumed her place of safety.
Mr. Wigglesworth glared at the blunt
pointed weapon for a moment and then
made a pass at the rabbit. The knife
caught in the loose skin, slipped, de
scribed a swift circle and wrote its
autograph on the back of Mr. Wiggles
"That's a darling knife to skin a rab
bit with, ain't it?" he yelled, throwing
it on the floor and stamping on it,
while Mrs. Wigglesworth turned pale
and gasped at the sight of blood.
"Shan't I get a handkerchief and tie
it up?" she asked.
Mr. Wigglesworth refused to hear
her. Going down into his pocket he
came up with a knife of his own,
opened its biggest blade, and pounced
upon the helpless rabbit. Grasping it
firmly in his left hand he put the blade
under the skin and tore off two quarts
of white hair. Then the rabbit slipped
off the chopping-block and Mr. Wig
glesworth went over with it. Ha was
holding his -tongue between his teeth
at the time.
"Why don't ye come down here and
help out a little?" he shouted, soon as
he could clamber out of the sawdust
and unlimlier his aching tongue.
"Think you're one of the vice presi
dents, don't ye, with nothing to do but
set on the stage s.nd look wise and
have your name spelled wrong in the
press reports? Come down here and
hold onto one end of this thing and I'll
snake the skin off n him so quick that
his own mother wouldn't recognize
Mrs. Wigglesworth descended from
the box, her kness tottering.
"Don't be scart," cried her husband,
as she hesitatingly took hold of the
rabbit's hind legs, and shut her eyes
tight; "he's dead, and anyway I've got
hold of the end he bites with. Now
you hold steady," he continued; "while
I make a circle round his hide and
we'll peel her off like a glove."
Mrs. Wigglesworth, with a little sob,
gripped the legs more firmly, and gave
a mighty pull. Her husband hadn't
yet got his bearings, so that the knife,
failing of its direction, made a fiendish
swoop and cut a long gash down the
knee of that gentleman's new spring
trousers. With a yell he dropped the
knife and fell over on the chopping
block, while the rabbit with lightning
rapidity doubled out of his skin and
left it limp and dangling in Mrs. Wig
glesworth's tenacious grasp.
"Did it hurt you?"' she gasped, as
her husband kicked his legs up over
the chopping-block in mad efforts to
get on his feet.
"Oh, no, it didn't hurt me," he
screamed, struggling upwards, "noth
ing hurts me stab all the knives in
town into my legs and I don't mind.
Any fool woman that wants me to take
"HEBE IT 18.'
and stick things into myself and play
I am hypnotized can have it done!"
Then Mr. Wigglesworth noticed the
skinned body of the rabbit which he
unconsciously held in his hand.
"Here he is!" he yelled, holding it up
at arm's length, "the great North
American rabbit skinner," and he
smote the side of the shed with it; "I'm
the roan that goes around getting up
rabbit pies for the poor!" and he
whanged the body against the wood
pile; "now is your time to have your
game pies. Rabbits treated while you
wait. All kinds of rabbits skun at
short notice and no questions asked!
People having rabbits on hand
should come to me before going else
where!" and with one concluding shriek
of wrath Mr. Wigglesworth dashed the
pale blue remains through the shed
window and struck a man who was
coming up the walk to solicit a sub
scription for a large square book con
taining one thousand receipts for doing
tfil kinds of things about the home.
Company Didn't Salt Him.
The club kicker came rushing in to the
cafe yesterday afternoon, and, throw
ing an alligator skin bag into one cor
ner, ordered a glass of whisky and
quinine in a loud voice, says an ex
change. "Thought you were down at
Atlantic City." somebody ventured.
"So I was." thundered the club kicker.
"Been laid up with the grip and
thought the change would do me good.
Doctor went down with me. Got a
seat at a small table where there were
only two other men. One of 'em was
an undertaker and the other a clergy-,
man. Xiee, cheerful company for an
invalid, wasn't it? Doctor kept asking
me about my health, all the time tell
ing me what to eat and what not to
eat. Clergyman struck up conversa
tion and began talking about the beau
ties of the Episcopal burial service.
Undertaker occasionally chipped in
with some comment about the large
death rate and the particular ravages
of the grip. But for the most part he
just sat sort of purring at me and
gloating over the prospect of more
business. I stood it for three meals.
Tacked up to-day and came back home.
Nice, lively crowd, that was. Here,
waiter, bring me another whisky and
"I am afraid." said the languishing
sentimentalist, "that your being is not
attuned to welcome sweet spring once
more." "Yes, it is," replied the prac
tical man. "I took fifteen grains of
quinine Jthis morning." Washington

Be Careful of Colors.
The woman with a taste for dress
says: "Brunettes are always mistak
ing their color. The prejudice in
favor of clothing them all in red has
spoiled lots of pretty women. Red does
suit some brunettes, usually the clear,
pale ones, but yellow suits a great
many more, and pale blue is often
charming for them. The fact is. peo
ple are far too much influenced by the
names of colors. No name tells exact
ly what a color is, and the subleties
that can't be made into words are
exactly what make the dif
ference in actuality. Women who
dress well, or the great pro
fessional artists in dress, go by
nothing but the actual trial of color
and complexion together. It is the
same way about putting colors togeth
er. The woman is lost who has little
rules about blue and pink going to- .
gether, or green and violet not going
togetner; everything depends on
shades. You've got to put them to
gether and see, and then if you can't
see, if you have no eye for color, get
some one to see for jtm. A great deal
can be learned by noting what nature
does. She puts green and flame to
gether in nasturtiums, bat see what a
delicate gray green!" Cincinnati En
