There it sometblnj: that thrill one like fine
martial music In tbo knowledge of a woman
wbo ha learned how to be a helping woman
fai her cirri shining with conscious radiance,
forgetting the petty side of herself and living
ber best. She is not good or wise or a bard
worker because she is afraid to be idle and
aril In the event of future punishment, or be
cause fate has pushed her, but because the
anal in her has found its wings and for the
first time she has the sense of living, the
knowledge that she mast emit light. The
first thought is to do the work in front of her
well, and by this means she most become to
some one a star of infinite beauty, and that
some one will look up at her radiance and be
made glad. Nothing can detract from her
mpoosibility or lessen her duty. It is her
duty to look up, to live high and to stand
alone. The helpless woman drags at the heels
of the soul her negative virtues. In little
things or groat, in social life or domestic, the
beautiful woman is the one who makes you
hope better of yourself, try to be better, to
live liberally, sweetening your world.
It is the best part of woman's work to in
spire others with hope, to make hearts gentle
and wards kind, to stand behind the door of
others' successes and triumphs. What pa
tieoce these bare, and what deathless courage!
Bow sweet ill a wife like thist How loyal we
are to the friend who is like this! Could
mere money buy such a nature? Could the
dross of the world gild this lofty spirit rising
to the skies) tO, madam! miles of Lyons vel
vet and the tiara of a duchess could not make
you q great and beautiful with a fixed star
radiance as a little buttonhole embroiderer
wbo tries each year to have more patience,
to do better work, to keep her place through
faithfulness and to bo a comfort and a source
of comfort and a source of income to her em
ployer. This- everlasting . growing of the
worker la the touching part, this is the sub
lime patience. What stars in our night are
the) men and women who keep on doing
their best, sweet boarted and true, with heads
Uplifted and only waiting to know if God
bears and seesl
tt is not only the famous women at the dis
tinguished task of whom the great work is
required; it is asked of the one at her stock
ing basket, of the buttonhole embroiderer.
Each one must learn that life is a compact
between, herself and her God. Do not be
little your mission or your trade. At night
the serene blue crackled with stars sends
down beauty upon us. Venus drips her rich
translucent light. She is poised in the sky
like a star queen ; baaded across the heavens
the myriad hosts of the Milky Way shine with
mysterious loveliness. And zoned across the
night of our working world ire tbo myriad
boats of patient and true men and women,
whose combined luster illumines life. Cath
arine Cole in Sew Orleans Picayune.
Tbe apparently fugacious habits of scissors
bar been noticed since tbe earliest historic
period. They disappear with a celerity and
secrecy wholly without parallel in tbe his
tory of lost objects. A woman is sewing and
baa a pair of scissors In her lap. Sho uses it,
say twice, and each time drop, it again in her
lap. The third time she wishes to use it she
cannot find It Though she searches her lap,
bar dress, her chair and tbe floor thoroughly
aba cannot find the slightest trace of the miss
ing scissors, and thereafter they are never
gain seen by mortal eyes. Or let as say
that a woman, In the very act of using a pair
of scissors, Is called from her work. She
places the scissors carefully in her work
basket, goes oat, locking the door of the room
after her, and returns in ten or fifteen min
utes to find her scissors gone
What is the more remarkable about the
disappearance of scissors is that once having
disappeared they are never again found. Too
may lose a tack hammer or a comb, but
sooner or later you find the missing article
behind some piece of furniture, but tbe pair
of scissors once lost is lost forever. There Is
scarcely a ease on record of the final recovery
of a pair of scissors that has been missed, and
has not been found within the next five min
utes. That there is something peculiar in the dis
appearance of scissors is virtually admitted
by woman when they seek to prevent the loss
of scissors by means of charms. For the piece
of ribbon which many women attach to the
handle of their scissors "to prevent them from
being lost" must act as a charm or otherwise
It would be valueless. How, in the name of
science and common sense, can the mere fact
that four inches of blue ribbon are tied to the
handle of a pair of scissors keep it from be
ing mislaid f In point of fact it does nothing
of the kind, and in spite of woman's faith in
the blue ribbon charm, it is absolutely useless.
If, however, we assume that tbe origin of this
custom was tbe attaching of a bit of witch
basal to the handle of a pair of scissors, we
can understand it. The woman of the mid
dle ages had a vague belief that the disap
pearance of scissors was due to the witches,
and therefore called in the aid of witch
hazel The modern woman, ignorant of the
peculiar eQcacy of witch hazel, fancies that
anything tied to a pair of scissors will keep it
from being lost, and she prefers ribbon to
witch hazel because It is prettier and more

A nint to Girl.
At a trial for divorce in TS&vr York, the
wife, who bad been a gay, fashionable girl,
testified that difficulty first arose between
herself and her husband on hi3 discovery, soon
after their marriage, that much of her Jewelry
and biio-a-brao had been given to her by
The Companion has nothing to do, usually,
with cases of divorce or unhappy marriages,
but this dotaQ emphasizes a moral which
very young girl should take to heart
The husband, on this point, had right on
bis side. Ho man of honorable fee nag would
be willing to see his wife wear the rings or
decorate his house with the costly trifles which
bad been given to her as tokens of the affec
tion of other men.
In this country, especially in villages and
rural communities. It is not uncommon for
girls to accept gifts of Jewelry, books and

Hon. D. O. Finch, United States dis
trict attorney for Iowa, was in Davenport
yesterday and submitted to an interesting
interview from a Bern ocrat - Gazette repre
sentative: "What class of cues require most of
your attention?" asked the scribe of Mr.
Fincb, who made reply:
"The greatest number of esses we have
are violations of tbe revenue law. the
trial of which occupies very little time.
Postal and counterfeiting and cases of
that character in court which we have to
try, occupy more time really than the
disposition of the revenue esses; but
probably in the aggregate, violations of
tbe revenue laws occupy more time than
other class of cases."
"Does the government keep a pretty
sharp lookout for those who try to violate
or evade tbe laws?"
"Tea, I think it does."
"What kind of counterfeit money is
"I think the silver coins. We have bad
a few cases of counterfeit paper money.
The biggest case of that kind was right
here in your own city, when thst man
Pratt was sent up for five years. We
sent one woman to the penitentiary for
two years for passing genuine ten dollar
bills raised to twenty dollar bills. We
got hold of eleven bills that were passed
in that way."
"Is it a common thing for women to
figure as counterfeiters or as assistants to
"In several cases which I have had, the
real guilty parties use female friends to
pass their money, thinking that they
could do it without the suspicion that
might attach to a man. We have had
several such cases."
"Has President Cleveland's adminis
tration been marked by any special en
forcement of laws, brought ucdir your
"His administration has been marked
by more strict scrutiny of officials' ac
counts than anv administration which I
remember of. I think all officials under
him have been held to a very strict en
forcement of duty, and their fees have
been kept within the strict limit of tbe
"What do you regard as the strongest
feature or features of tbe closing admin
istration?" "I regard his tariff reform policy as
the leading feature of his administration,
and tbe one that will remain longest in
the minds of the people."
"Has Mr. Cleveland left his party in
any better condition than be found it?"
"Yes, I think be has."
"Piease explain how?"
"I think be has left his psrty in better
condition, because he has left it with a
distinct issue, and has bequeathed to his
party the light side of that issue."
"Then your idea is that the reform of
tbe tariff is a live question which has
come to stay."
"Yes sir, to stay until it is triumph
ant." "Would the position of the party in
your opinion be stronger if Mr. Cleve
land had urged hts views earlier on this
question, In his administration?"
"I think perhaps it would; because it
is an issue that the more it is studied and
the better it is understood, the more cer
tain it is to succeed. The people are
slow to grasp an issue of that kind. I de
not think they will ever realize it until
they come to know their pockets are

"What are your predictions of Gen.
Harrison's course after March 4."
"My predictions are that Gen. Harri
son will maintain a conservative policy,
but that be will be prevented from pros

brought to bear npon him."

of republicans for the Iowa offices now
