There is nothing so very difficult in mak
ing friends the trouble is to keep them.
Pleasing manners and a taking way will
always win admirers, but a lasting friend
ship must be built upon a firmer founda
tion than a transitory smile, an hour of
high spirits or even great physical beauty.
Of course it is a pleasure to feel that one
is favored by some radically beautiful
woman, but unless there be genuine con
geniality between tbe two concerned the
time will come when passive loveliness
will cease to bo attractive. To retain
friendship one must be continually on tbe
watch and not let the familiarity that
comes from a lengthy knowledge of the
other's life breed the contempt that so
often follows a close intimacy.
To retain either friendship or love the
illusions m- st not be dispelled. Do not,
because you feel sure of your ground, let
the commonplace enter in and monopolize
the everyday affairs. Let the halo of sen
timent hover over even the prosaic affairs
of daily life, for once dispelled they can
never form again, and in the one glimpse
of the material side of the intimacy may
le utterly destroyed a relation at on
time thought to be eternal. Philadelphia

How the Dog Knew.
A family on Staten Island has a dog that
seems to show a distinct reasoning faculty.
The doc had lone been accustomed to take i
a morning walk with a memlier of the :
family, but was not permitted to accom- 1
pany his friend to church. The animal !
soon seemed to understand that one day in !
seven lie must remain at home, and the
conclusion was that he could count. On
Sunday moming, however, the dog sur
prised every one by joining the family on
the way to church. The conclusion was
that be had forgotten until it was called
to mind that tbe church bell had not rung
that morning. The dog evidently asso
ciated the sound of the bell with the fact
that be was not to accompany his compan
ions aa usual, and when the bell did not
sound be saw no reason for omitting his
usual walk. New York Sun.

THE DAY OF THE DOG.
A Little Creature That Was at On
Time a Formidable ItivaU
He stretched himself out in the bam

whole summer afternoon lefore him, and
means to lot it dream itself away.
lie was absolutely unruffled by what
had occurred. The revelation of her faith
lessness had left him perfectly calm.
He filled his pipe without scattering the
tobacco over bis light tennis suit, aud suc
ceeded in getting a light with the first
match, although the hammock swayed
gently and a wandering breeze came and
played under the old apple trees.
But his little cocker spaniel needed no
further invitation than the sud and far
away look in his eyes, for she sprang bold
ly into the hammock and stretched herself
out on his broad chest.
As she placed her paws around his neck
and cuddled her silky head close under his
chin, she knew that the marks of her feet
on his clothing would meet with no re
proof in such an emergency.
She lay therequietly without licking his
face in her usual demonstrative fashion,
for he was a wise little beast and felt that
moi.st and doggy kisses were not the sort
he would welcome just then.
"Good, old girl," he said, as he drew her
closer to him. " You are fond of me, any
way. You and the pipe and I are three
great old chums, and we don't care for
any one else, do we? Not much:''
The spaniel gazed nt him wistfully.
"She's not worth it, is she?" he continued.
"But you're different. I have never done
anything for you but lo;it you when you
don't mind, aud take no notice of you when
you do. And yet you jumped overboard
from the steamer and came near being
drowned, just to save an old straw hat of
mine. But you're only a dog, you know,
and that's where it nil comes in.
"But she! I've done everything for her
that n man can do for a woman, when ho
loves her, and now she's gone oft" with
young De Rocks. But site's a girl, and
fiirls and dogs are not to be compared in
the same breath. S?o we'll let her go.
"Just a thinp of puffs and ratrhes.

Not for heart wounds, hut for scratches.
"Ah. you are rehearsing, I see."
The spaniel raised her head and greeted
the intruder with a jealous little growl.
Then she found herself unceremoniously
spilled on the ground, as the young man
rose to bis feet.
"Rehearsing? I don't"
"Oh, no; I don't suppose yon do remem
ber, but you were to read Dobson tome,
down by the brook this afternoon. In
stead, I find you coolly lying here and re
peating one of bis most cynical sentiments
to that innocent little dog of yours." I
"I did not think you would return so
soon. When I went across the lawn o
your house, I saw you coming down the
drive with I)e Rocks in his cart."
"You saw my parasol; but I was not
"How could I know? It was held so
low that I could see no one else," he said
"You might have known. I loaned it to
Jennie Whiting. When Frank asked her
to'go driving with him she had a premoni
tion that she would look perfectly lovely
in her red dress; but she had no parasol to
match it, so she very coyly forgot hers and
made him stop while she borrowed mine,

find out how much confidence you had in

"I don't care to know about that kind.
It is a perfect woman I am anxious to
study. Will you forgive me and give me
my first lesson tnia afternoon?"
The cocker spaniel looked up into the
girl's face and then, making, up her mind
that dogs were at a discount, started in
frantic pursuit of a hypothetical sparrow.

In 6ccordar.ee with the report current
yesterday in regard to the change of
views expressed by Ex-City Attorney W.
P. Moore, of Moline, the gentleman wis
seen by an Argus reporter and ques
tioned concerning the little matter which
has fairly taken the breath away from a
go-id many republicans, for tbe simple
reason that it is getting pretty cloee to
home and is sltogether different from the
many similar cases that are daily being
chronicled by the press. In answer to an
inquiry from the reporter as to the cor
rectness of the report, Mr. Moore replied
that it was true.
"Isn't this rather sudden?" was asked.
"Well, no not exactly," he replied. "I
have been thinking over the matter for a
long time, and finally concluded that the
republican party is not the party fcr tb$
"What has been instrumental in bring
ing about the charge, in your opinion?-'
"Mainly the tariff issue," replied Mr.
Moore. "While a protective tariff as it
is called, may have some very gocd fea
tures, I do not believe that it is what we
need in this country. I do not with to
be understood as being a free trader, for
I am not, but I cannot see where the

Mr. Moc ii is among the f oremOsl mem

has ii.ade a study cf the tariff question
and feels convinced that he hss arrived
at least at a conscientious conclusion and
to his manly avowal of his convictions is
due no little credit. Ilowever, Mr.
