Best of Political Parties.
The political parties that I would
call great, are those which cling more
to principles than to consequences;
to general, and not to special cases;

a moro bold and open conduct than
others. De Tocquevlllo.

Which Kills Most Worry or Drink?
That the optimism which pervades
Kate Langley Bosher's new book,
"The House of Happiness," has the
racy quality of the phollosophy of
those who live near the soil, would
seem to be proved by the following
remarks of one of its characters:
"And if anybody will tell me what
good worryln' does they can have ev
ery egg my hen Is agoln' to lay this
spring! More folks wear out from
worryln' than dies from drink, and

waits on her like she was a baby. I
used to think she was a fool critter,
but it's me who's been the fool. A
man don't think much of aVoman he
don't have to wait on."
"I ain't never heard tell that the
Lord pays taxes, or cuts the firewood,
or mends the roof when it leaks, or
gets shoes for the children, and all
them things has got to be done. Solo
mon Hatch leaves things he don't like
to do to the Lgrd. He gets me and
the Lord mixed up."
Varnish Soles of Shoes.
Patented liquids to spread upon the
soles of shoes In order to make them
wear longer have recently been an
alyzed In the laboratories of La Na
ture, In Paris. The chemists report
that these are little else but copal
varnish, very strong In copal. They
suggest that, as this Is far less ex
pensive than any of the patented sub
stances, it bo used Instead of them.
Their advice is to wear new shoes
for several days to make the surface
of the soles more absorbent, then to
varnish them with the copal until the
leather refuses to take up any moro.
Set tho shoes aside until the varnlBh
is perfectly dry. They close their re
port with the comment: -
"We do not know If this really
makes the leather more resisting.
But one can always try and we hope
that some of our readers will do It
and let us know the results."

married that you swore so, I'd never

That a white brother who was so

day, and admired his keystone very
much and casually remarked that he
owned one. Tho Colored brother ask

up in Wisconsin. The Colored broth

white brother made a long story
about the difference, demultlcatlon
and so forth. When the black brother
said, "Well, what would you do if you
