So so tender, and ao dear;
A little voice who helpleaa call
In music to a m tther'a ear;
A Mule putoe of d Ucate breath.

A little arm that aerrelaai Ilea;
Red, curlliijf acg-era, tiniest -things:
Two round, blue, upward gazing eyes.
All tilled with ttleot wondrrinKS,
That, as the kias of heareo's Ugbt bids,
Now ope, now cl ae their downy lids;
A little head, so :tmooth and white;
Pert, rosy mouth and fairy chin.
And cheeks all r landed to the sight,

All In one tiny fiameenwore.

EXERCISE FOR GRACE.
WTiy Women Rita from a Chair Very
Much aa the Doll of Their Child Dom,
Has anybody tol. I .you yet, little woman,
that you don't k sow how to rise from a
chair? Well, you don't. The act, as you
perform It, suggests the movements of the
flat faced, join tec wooden creature you
loved best when it child, because she was
the ungainliest of all your children, and
everybody else laughed at her and at you
for cherishing her most. Bnt you did, and
you made her the very finest gowns and
most astounding t urbane you could devise,
and kept her in yc ur arms moat of the day
and put her close by your pillow when you
went to bed at ni ht, and; perhaps that la
partly the reason why ybu ait down and

steal perfection, a nu the areas reforms, ana
the body reforms, and the Dolsartian graces,
and all the rest And yon should have
learned that the treason you rise like your
wooden doll is because your Joints are in
exactly the same inflexible and unyielding
state that hers ware. The satire of grace
of body is aupr leneas of Joint. - It really
takes all the poevry out of the matter, you
see, to discover t aat the elegant sinuosity
of movement Uu.t marks the "vera dee." is
altogether a question of mechanics, and
depends upon the ease of motion in the va
rious hinges that connect the different
members of the human frame. But it is,
and so the thii tg for you to do is to get
these hinges into easy working order as
soon and as con- pletely as possible.
Begin your in proving exercises, not by
practicing various graceful poses before a
mirror, as won 10 who haven't got hold of
the secret of tht thing are wont to do, but
begin with suppling each separate joint
in your body hi this way. Turn the fin
gers round and round on the axis of the
hand; turn t he hand round on the axis of
the wrist. Tur a the forearm on the elbow
and the whole i rm on the shoulder. Then
turn the her Sen the neck slowly and as
far round is ;rou can. You will be sur
prised to serf h yw aaaily after a few days'
practice yr br J ace will oon1to be where
your back Jair was a moment before.

the leg on the knee and the foot on the
ankle. A steady, constant practice of this
one turning exercise every day for one
month until every joint is as five and
supple as it can possibly be made will give
a grace and freedom of motion that seems
well nigh incredible to one who has never
tried it. The most important of thexe
movements are those that turn the body
on the waist, the head on tho neck, and
the legs on the hips. Just notice the next

An Inexpensive Purifier.
After boiling U.n nxLautes the water
should be poured into a wooden or stone
jar, covered with a cloth and left an hour
to cool, when it may be put into the filter.
For a filter a new, clean flower pot of un
glazed clay, filled monthly, or rather
changed for one freshly charged, is better
than most of the patents in the market.
First cut a disk of cotton flannel to fit the
bottom of the pot inside, put on this a
layer of clean, white sand an inch thick,
then three inches of charcoal in very
coarse powder, three inches of sand above
this, and clean, washed gravel over all,
und you have as good a filter for a dollar
us you can buy for ten, aa far as working
goes. Tho water must run through this
twelve hours before the charcoal dust
washes out so that tha fluid runs clear.
The pot should fit into the top of a long
stone jar with faucet attached and tne ice
be hung in it, tied in a piece of cotton, flan-
