iTi M interesting article In a New York.
hR weekly tells of a unique Industry
which, for want of a better name,
is called the flower hospital. Everyone
who has walked about on New York,
streets has wondered how the men at
street corners are able to sell roses
and violets so cheap. This article ex
plains why. -These beautiful bunches
of violets for a quarter, and a dozen
pink roses for 50 cents are without
doubt convalescents from a flower hos
pital. The latter is usually situated in
the rear of some big: florist shop and
here are placed faded flowers which
are subjected to treatment after which
they are sold at greatly reduced prices
to the street sellers. In this hospital
you will find blossoms in all stages of
decay; budding heads that have been
snapped off, faded roses, or carnations
with stems of unequal lengths. These
are all jumbled together at first, then
are sorted and carefully treated by the
attendants who know exactly how to
make them over into what appear to be
the freshest flowers. According to this
article "wiring" is the first thing to be
done to construct a street bouquet
The wire is concealed by an artiticial
stem. Roses and carnations are treat
ed In this manner. One of the most
remarkable things done in the hospital
is to make full-blown roses over into
buds. When the rose enters what is
called the third class, that is. when It
is in full bloom, it goes to the street
sellers, after a sojourn in the hospital.
There the "doctor" pierces the base of
the rose with a wire and draws the
petals together, making the rose again
into a bud. After this is accomplished
it would deceive the elect What la
done •with faded violets is still more
wonderful. First of all they are put
into salt water, after which- they are
made into bunches and touched up
■with violet paint. They now resemble,
fresh violets, but there is one more
treatment, and that ts perfuming them.
The writer says that sometimes the
violets 3-0U purchase on the street
smell of cheap perfume. Now you
know why. There is something partic
ularly disheartening in this account of
flower hospitals, for one has always
liked to think that there were a few
things which were preserved from the
blighting commercialism of the age,
and the beauties of nature were surely
something that we supposed no one
could tamper with. But even the mod
est little violet can be made to smile
artificially and forced to hold up its
head after its best day is over. One
really wishes one had never heard of
that "flower hospital."
In one of the current magazines
■which has been publishing a series on
the American newspaper, there is a
most interesting article on the news
paper in relation to politics. It is
written by the political editor of one
of the most prominent of metropolitan
papers and should be read by all po
litical reporters or those who "have as
pirations in that direction. He makes
a point of the mental and physical
strain of the life of the political re
porter. His work is never done. He
must be able to work all night and
then all day if needs be, and if his
health is precarious or his ability de
pendent on his physical condition, he
would better not try this particular
work. He points to the death of Julian
Ralph in the prime of life, as an ex
ample of the man who was literally
worn out by the demands of political
newspaper work. Then a political re
porter should be a gentleman with a
high sense of honor; he should have
tact and diplomacy and be able to rec
ognize the difference between some
thing told him for his own ear and for
publication. He thinks, too, that prac
tical experience among voters, and a
knowledge of the ins and outs of some
particular ward, is better equipment for
the political reporter than much read
ing of books on political economy.
Some of the young reporters fresh
from college having finished courses in
civics imagine that they are perfectly
equipped to go into political journal
ism, and are much surprised to find
that a long apprenticeship is necessary
before they get an insight into the
workings of practical politics. The
writer gives many Interesting anec
dotes of conventions, interviews with
candidates and incidents showing how
necessary it is for the reporter to be a
man of his word and the possessor of
unusual discretion. Of course, abso
lute loyalty to one's paper is the first
and last essential.
The Bright Face of Danger—By Robert
Neilson Stephens. L. C. Page & Co
Boston. For sale by .St. Paul Book
and btationery company.
Mr. Stephens is a follower and stu
dent of Dumas. There are indeed
pages in this exciting- novel when it is
difficult to believe that one is not fol
lowing the strenuous adventures of a
Dumas hero. The time Is the year
160S, the place the provinces near
Paris, and the hero Is the young Henri
de Launay, son of the Sleur de la
Tournoire. who is taunted by a young
girl that he is a milksop and knows
nothing of life save that which he has
learned from books. This being pretty
near the truth, the young man declares
that he will at once set forth to Paris
and will cut off the mustaches of an
other young man whose hirsute adorn
ment has roused admiration in the
breast of the young woman. So on a
trusty horse and followed by a faithful
retainer, Henri seta out, followed by
his mother's tears, and on the second
day has an adventure which is the be
ginning of the remarkable affair in
wWch he engages and furnishes as
exciting a story as Dumas ever wrote
In his best days. It would not be fair

to intending readers to tell the story
•here and spoil their enjoyment. Suf
fice it to say that Henri proves himself
no bookworm, but as brave a man as
ever released the lady of his love from
a tyrant and brought her safely
through many hairbreadth escapes to
marry her in the end and make her hap
py forever. There is not a dull page in
Mr. Stephens' story, nor has he once
forgotten the quaint style and manner
of the period of which he writes. It is
one of the best of its kind, and Its
kind is of tftat combination of love
and danger which rarely fails to appeal
to the lovers of a good novel.
The Sign of Triumph—By Sheppard
Stevens. L. C. Page & Co. For sale
by St. Paul Book and Stationery com
The writer has taken the time of
the "Children's Crusade," one of the
most extraordinary events of history,
in which to place her story. It relates
the tale of that ill-fated movement
from its enthusiastic outset, and de
picts the pathetic experiences of those
infant martyrs to the cause of reli
gion. Interwoven with the pathoa Is
a romance of an adventurer fallen
into evil ways, whose love for one of
the child knights whom he rescues
from a terrible fate at last redeems
him from his evil courses and ends
happily. One of the- charming 1 stories
within the story in this book is that

First Lessons In the New Thought—By
J. W. Winkley, ftL D. James H. West
These are some elementary lessons
in what is called the new thought, or
a manner of mental healing of the
body and mind. According to the au
thor's introduction, "in this series we
are to see how one can use or direct

his mind—the thought, feeling and will
—for his own health or for the cure of
his own ills and ails." The writer
builds his entire argument upon the
supposition that an tranquil undis
turbed states of mind tend to health,
and that all disturbance and distress
of the mind tend to produce bodily dis
orders. Also that whatever is produc
tive of unrest is unnatural, and vice
versa. This essay Is an attempt to
identify sin with disease, and good
health with \irtue, and is a Christian
Science pamphlet advertising the do
ing away with drugs and physicians
and relying entirely on mental power.
It partakes of that vagueness and lack
of clear statement of just what is
meant, that characterizes all Christian

The books before us are convenient in
form, attractively and substantially
bound and printed from clear type.
Their very reasonable price will place
them within the reach of all. The ed
itorial work: has been intrusted to
scholars of special fitness. Each vol
ume contains a portrait of a biography
of the author, and an introduction
dealing with the subject of the book,
the way in which it is written, its re
lation to human life, and its place in
literature. The texts are derived from
the latest authoritative sources. The
notes are added with the aim, not to
make as many as possible, but to maKe
them as useful as possible. They treat
of difficulties in the text, allusions and
references, and points of construction.
The editing of these volumes is care
fully and judiciously done, the books
being treated as pieces of literature
rather than as frameworks for erudite
theories of criticism.
James Montgomery Flagg, whose
laughable collection of limericks and
drawings entitled "Tomfoolery" ts having
a successful sale, is a comparatively
young man, having been bora at Pelham
Manor. N. V.. twenty-seven years ago
His artistic education included studies at
the Art Students' league in New York,
in Paris, under Victor Marec, and in
London, under the celebrated portrait
painter, Hubert yon Herkomer. He has
drawn for Life. St. Nicholas and the Har
per publications, and has for the past few
years been on the staff of Judge. Mr
Flagg married in 1899 the daughter of &
T. McCormick. of St. Louis, and is spend
ing the summer in Europe.
E. Phillips Oppenheim, the nopular
English novelist, is visiting this country.
Mr. Oppenheim is not a stranger here, as
he married a Boston girl several years
ago. The fact that three of Mr. Oppen
heim's novels were published here last
year has suggested a comparison with a
well-known American author. A West
ern critic says: "In point of quantity of
output. Mr. Oppenheini is a dose second
to our own Cyrus Townsend Brady; but
there, thanks be. the resemblance ends
for the quality of his writings la decid
edly above the good and industrious arch
bishop." It may be said on authority that
Mr. Oppenheim is under contract to
write two novels per year for bis English
publishers, his latest. "Anna, the A
dventuress." having already go»e Into a
fourth edition in this country. There is
considerable competition on the part of
American publishers to secure, the Ameri
can rights for Mr. Oppenheim's books.
Whether women are born matchmakers
or not will always remain a question. It
Is pretty certain, however, that some

Hamolen Sears' forthcoming novel, entl-

with a young married couple, Mr. and
Mrs. Braveur, who live in the summer in

the course of the narrative Mrs. Braveur.
who is an inveterate matchmaker, gets
most of her girl friends engaged while
they are visiting her, or lays the ground
work of future matrimonial arrangements
for them. Some of the- instances where
Providence mysteriously steps In to aid
the pretty little matchmaker in her en
terprises are sufficiently surprising to be
possible only to Providence itself.

received a letter from Mr. lon Perdicaris,
who was seized and taken into captivity by
Rafsuli. the Moorish brigand. The letter

Doubleaay, Page & Co.. this summer is a
sequel, in a way, to his autobiography.
"Up From Slavery," dealing as it does
wnn his efforts in behalf of his people
the teaching of the benefits of manual
labor and the training of young men and
women to do everything from cooking and
needlework to making and laving the
bricks of the actual buildings themselves.
It is the first book of Mr. Washington's
to show the reader fully what the great
work of the author has been.
There has been no more incisive discus
sion of the present political status of the

tled why Disfranchisement Is Bad/ by
Archibald H. Grimke, in the July number
of the Atlantic.Mr. Grimke proposes to
himself three questions: Can disfranchiae
ment of the negro settle the negro ques
tion for the negro?—for - the South?—or
for the nation? He concludes that it can
not, aD?r* that it is ' equally bad for all
three. His thoroughly well-informed and
far-seeing paper i s a distinct contribution
to the discussion of this most vital ques
tion. .* '-. - ;

--: - THE BRIGHTER SIDE :-;
:I resolved that, lfke the sun. so long as
™y l aylasted- si? would look on the
bright side of everything. *
The first condition of human goodness
Is something to love; the second some
thing to reverence—George Eliot.
"Where each lives for the othei and all
A little thing, a sunny smile,
A loving word at morn;
And all day long the day shone bright.
The cares of life were made more light
And the sweetest hopes were born.
Ood has not given us vast learning to
solve all the problems or unfaittng wis
dom to direct all the wanderings of our
brothers* lives, but He has given to ev
ery one of ua the power to be spiritual
and by our spirituality to lift and enlarge
and enlighten the lives we touch.—Phil
Sorrow is but the mere rus* of the
loulWI oulW_ Ac$ fY lty wtU cl®«nse and brighten
it. —Dr. Johnson.
Kindness—A language which the dumb
can speak and the deaf can understand
Never lose an opportmifty of seeing
anything beautiful. Beauty is God'a
We ought to aequamt ourselves with
the beauttfnl; we ought to contemplate
it with rapture and attempt to raise
ourselves up to its height. And in order
to gain strength for that we must keep
ourselves thoroughly unselfish. We must
not make it our own. but rather seek to
communicate tt: indeed, to make a sacri
fice of it to those who are dear and
precious to us—Goethe.
Let as learn to be content with what
w© have. Let ns get rid of our false es
timates, set np ail the higher Ideals—a
quiet home; vines of our own planting;
a few books fuU of inspiration, of genius
a few friends worthy of being loved and
able to love us in turn; a hundred mno
cent pleasures that -bring no pain or sor
row; a devotion to the right that will
never swerve; a simpie religion empty
of aH bigotry, full of trust and hope and
love, and to sach a philosophy thi3 world
will give up aH the empty joy it has
What Is Good?
"What is the real good 7"
I asked in musing mood.
Order, said the law court;
Knowledge, said the school*
Truth, said th© wise man;
Pleasure, said the fool;
Love, yaid the maiden;
Beauty, said the page;
Freedom, said the dreamerj
Home, says the, sage;
Fame, said the soldier;
Equity, the seer;
Spake my heart faß sadly.
"The answer is not here."
Then within my bosom
Softly this I heard.
"Each he-art holds the secret*
Kindness is the word."
When the scarlet cardinal tell*
Her dream to the dragon fly,
And the lazy breeze makes a nest In tbm
And murmurs a lallaby
It is July.
When the tangled cobweb pulls
The cornflower's cap away
And the lilies lean over the wall
To bow to the butterfly,
It is July.
When the heat like a mist veil float*.
And poppies flame in the rye.
Arid the silver note in the streamlet**
Has softened almost to a sigh.
It is July.
When the hours are so still that thne
Forgets them, and lets them 11©
"Neath petals pink till the night star*
At the sunset in the sky,
It is July.
—Susan H. Sweet.
JINGLES FROM JONG.
Oh, there's life fn mery jingles, '
When they come from Jong;
Yet as the bullets patter.
And the ceaseless jongese chatter,..
There's death in every jingal
When it comes from Jong.
There was a young soldier of Jong,
Who purchased a gun for a song;
He called it a jingal.
And swore he could ring all
The Redcoats that battered at Jong.
Jingle, jingle, little Jong.
Jingle, jingals all day Ion*;
Jingle, jingala, jingle best.
Jingle while the jungles rest;
Jingle jingal. little Jong,
Jmgle, Jungals, jingle Jong.
All poets whatsoever ;.
Who in. England make - endeavor . •
To titillate the reader have been wrong} -
For, obi. the real poet • ■ .^^j
Is the • native :of Tibet, -
And the thing to fire a jingal is a Jong.
So let us draw tuition
From this "diplomatic mission," . r':

Jingals From Jong
GYANGTSE. May 11.—The whole place
is invested by Tibetans, who axe firing
Jingals from Jong.
Pray, what are those "Jingala from
They might well be crackers.
Those Tibet war whackers—
"Fit for picnics" and luncheons bong «.
Yes, they're firing some jlngals from
Those militant Lamas,
In scented pyjamas.
Are hitting the bullseye—ding dongl
With what? with those "jingals from
The latest dispatch
Says John Bull got a scratch
With—welL it sounds like a topical sons.
Yes, they let go their jingals from Jong.
The deadly assortment
Marred T. Atkins' deportment—
And no doubt he'll reply before long.
"Yon would like a suitable motto?"
said the tombstone agent. "How would
'peace to his ashes' do?"
"That wouldn't do at all." responded
the widow, with offended dignity. "He
drove a garbage wagon, but I don't see
any use of saying so on his tombstone;'*—
