Tiie mother of Carlyle Harris has
issued a book containing poems and

some of them are not wholly bad,
the opinion that the electrocution of
the young man was justifiable will in
no sense be weakened by the volume.
It may not be impertinent to in
quire if the kindly gentlemen who
are passing around the hat in the
interest of the duke of Voragua have
consulted his grace as to his wishes
in the matter of being made a re
cipient of public charity. The duke
is Spanish, not English, you know.
Veragua's ill luck may be one of
the hereditary consequences of de
scent from Columbus, but this fact
will scarcely make the seizure of his
Spanish estate by greedy creditors
any the less disagreeable. We hope
that fortune will again turn her
wheel, and this time in favor of the
Columbian duke of Spain.
The Indian soldiers in the United

Interest they took in their spool knitting.
Their own little darlings will surely be
just as delighted with it. Put a leaf from
your table across two chairs, put on it a
few blocks of woxi and cut up a few
potatoes, but be sura not to forget the most
important articles that is, the paper for
wrapping and money. Then let them be
storekeepers while you do yonr sewing and
give orders to the play errand boy. Keep
your darning cotton for rainy days, and
they will only be tco eager to wrap it oil
the card on to an empty spool for greater
comfort for you 1 ter on. Read pleasant
stories to children before retiring, and they
will sleep and dre im pleasantly. Above
all things interest yourself in your child's
amusements, and yn will be none the less
loved for your troul le.
As I have a few n sources for the amuse

Reformation and Women's Influence.
I would not advise any woman to marry
a man with an idea of reforming him. I
have seen this effort too often end in igno
minious failure, ami yet I have known men
to be reformed and to stay reformed through
the influence of a tood woman. I have al
ways felt convincer , however, that the man
who was reformed ly a woman would have
eventually reformel himself; at all events
he could have done so.
The man who ha contracted vicious hab
its in his early y uth becomes disgusted
with them and liinself before he reaches
30, if he is not almost wholly dominated by
his lower nature. When he reforms, it is
because his spiritutj nature has the ascend
ancy. When a woman succeeds in reform
ing him, it is because his spiritual nature
is influenced by her. The very same influ
ence patience, devotion and self sacrifice
would not have eff ted a reform in a man
whose higher nature was less developed.

Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's case illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, ana should be earefullv read
A very large per cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Soott Medical In
stitute have lu-en in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't got well, but always
gets worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entirely destroyed.' A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
pable specialist, who goes right at
the cause of the- trouble and removes
it, is the only hope.
Dr. Wilson and his medical asso
