Hairs of the associatii n were re

experience tho board would see fit to
put the mat. tr in the batsds of the
State seere'srtes to handle as they saw

to do ibis, and it was repeatediy uried
upon the pres-denl to cali a rieeurg and

The association has never since the in

on account of their re'usal to confer with
those who have trade tbe work a life

The ancient Egyptians were skilled in
tbe art of tannin); leather, and manufac
tured it in various ways and for various
purposes besides thut of furnishing cover
ing for the feet. Indeed, it is to those
builders of the pyramids that we are in
debted for the first artistic forms of foot-
weur, and so far iiscan be ascertained from
history and the researches of archsolo-
glsts, the Egyptians were the first shoe
makers who were worthy of the name.
It U a fact, too, that tanners of today
employ very much the same methods as
did the ancients. About the same mate
rials are used, and the processes arc almost
precisely similar to those in vogue hun
dreds of years njD. It is true that tanners
of the present U.iy have found means of
greatly shortening the time required to
convert a bide into leather, and that steam
power and modern machinery have done
much to expedite and improve the pro
cesses of finishing tbe leather; but, after
all, the principles of tannins remain the
same as they have from the first. New
At the Table.
Table etiquette I do not wholly despise,
although I think too much is made of it. I
will tell you what I would have, and that
is such habits as conduce to health. Amer
icana eat too fast. We carry our nervous
manners to the table. Our food is tumbled
into the mouth, and swallowed without
mastication. This can lie corrected, if we
begin with our childreu. I hurdly believe
in any law for eating, but to eat slowly. I
have observed that a small child almost in
variably holds a spoon or a knife grace
fully, often very uniquely, but beautifully.
No rules are needful. But when they begin
to eat in a hurry grace is thrown away.
Let them be made to come to the table
with delilteraf.ion, sit down with ease, eat
with attention to mastication, and they
will stay natural nud charming. Healtn
underlies nil beauty. Mary E. Spencer iu

Loui3 Napoleon was a dic
tator, the supreme ruler of
the French. He - had, by his
own irresistible will, placed
himself over the great French
nation, He was a despot, but
he held his position up to the
time of Sedan. Then he sudden
ly collapsed and the man who
had braved the world, and re
peatedly lisked his life in
furtherance of his schemes, be
came a dotard, lie died under
the surgeon's knifn, and then
the truth became manifest, He
was the victiuie of kidney trou
ble, and it was this that mnde
him weak, sapped his intellect
and induced him to sansction
war with Germany, and euffer
defeat afterwards. His case is
common in every day life, it is
this terrible malady that i9 the
cause of half th business fail
ures. If the sufferers will take
