Memory makes half of life's heav
en ft and neventy-flve per cent, of its
hells. Memory ia one of God's most
blessed gifts to man. Like all other
gifts from the Creator, it can be mis
used and abused. And there are
times when we would be willing to
lrop all memory of past bliss if we
could lo.e all memory of the things
which we regret. Memory is the
battle-ground where recollections

Visiting toilets this season exhibit
a lavish amount of velvet. Indeed
whole costumes are composed of
this material, l'leasing jackets are
made of plain and fancy velvets, to
wear with silk or cloth skirts. The
fancy continues for blouses of silk
and lace, with elaborate neck ar
rangements, to wear with a separate
skirt. There is an infinite variety,
by the way, in small finery, such as
any one who has ever tried Dr. De.me's

these most distressing of ailments.

neck ruffs and wrist frills. All sorts
of chiffon and lace and ribbon enter
into the composition of the neck dec
orations. High-necked gowns for house wear
are receiving lavish trimming and
are worn in place of the half de
collete gowns at dinners and else
where when a decollete gown is not
absolutely required. When the
occasion is sufficiently formal to call
for evening dress, a decollete gown
is the correct thing.
Dress skirts show less and less ful
ness, and modistes are making an
effort to force the old-time mode of
a plain skirt to the knees, where the
fullness is introduced by a Spanish
flounce. Street gowns are still made
with skirts that are short enough to
escape the ground, but the fashion
is long skirts for the house dress.
The rumor is abroad that in tailor
suits will be revived the short
bodices, as well as the neat, plain,
tight fitting ones, pointed back and
front, in which the sleeves will be
put in ever so plainly. Braiding

Very stylish, and likely to find
favor, are the gowns made in
checked woollen fabrics, with a
bolero jacket in plain cloth. Of
course the usual white lisse, lace or
silk front, with draped belt, is worn
with these new gowns.
The princess dress is occasionally

Fashion, but no woman ought to
venture on a gown out as princess
who is not absolutely sure of her

Walking hats are decidedly popu
lar and are made in all the leading
materials. Flowers and feathers
combine in furnishing their garni
ture. The very latest fancy is for
toques. Fortunately the term toque
covers a variety of shapes and sizes;
hence there are large and small
toques, toques to be worn tilted well
lorward aud toques to be worn set
well back on the head. Women of
fashion no longer wear large hats at
evening entertainments. The rule

most expensive garments.
A novelty in white skirts for even

The Family Dinner.
Why is it that In most households
the dinner table becomes a dumping
ground for the wholesale plaints of
itsmembers? Probably because this
is the only meal of the day when the
entire family meet together, each
one feels it a duty to air a few per
annul grievances in order to seek
consolation from the others.
Out of deference to digestion, if
for no other reason, dinner table con
versation should be of the spicie-t,
but this fact is lost sight of in the
general desire of everybody, from
papa down to the youngsters, to
serve up only those ' topics which

Keeping the Mouth Clean.
Keeping the mouth clean from in
fancy until the termination of life's
journey should be a habit so firmly
nxed by constant practice In itifancy
and childhood that it will not be
likely to be neglected in after life.
In the air around are floating the
germs of various diseases con
sumption, pneumonia, malarial,
diphtheria, tonsilitis, and the like.
It the mouth is healthy and its
secretions normal, these disease
germs are destroyed there, and thus
they are prevented from entering
the deeper tissue of the body. But
swollen, sodden gums, decaying
teeth, tarter and morbid catarrhal
discharges, all form so many centers
for germ culture aud avenues for the
entrance of morbid matter into the
tissues. The enlarged scrofulous
glands of so many children and
youth, resulting in unsightly scars
and aisngurements, are usually
caused by tuberculous germs which
enter the lymphatic glands of the
neck from enlarged tonsils, decayed
teeth, or suppurating ears.
in thrush, the baby s mouth Is

The Greece of To-day.
To understand the phenomenal rise
of Greece, we must bear iu mind that,
though the Greeks had been miserably
down-trodden bj the Turks for four
hundred years; the best hope of the
people, borne by an unholy tribute far
away from their mothers' homes, and
trained into the tools of an inhuman
tvrannv; and though, had it not been
for tne "untowara event ' ai .avartno,
the whole population of the Morea
would have been exterminated beneath
the merciless tramp of Turkish hoofs,
there, nevertheless, lived behiud the
outward show of slavish debasement
heart of sturdy independence that
cherished the patriotic memories of
ages, and seized eagerly on every
chance that might enable it to stand
before the world in the attitude and
character that had given it the most
prominent place in tne history of the
human race. The two years' strugulo
that gave to Greece the right to look
Europe in the face, as a noble people
determined to die rather than live the
slaves of a hateful tyranny, at the same
time gave to Europe the assurance that
Greece was living Greece again; and
Christian conscience and classic memo
ries combined, when onco the yoke w as
broken, to enable the Greeks to show to
the world that, in spite of the bomb
shells of Venice and the sabres of Tur
key, not only should a Greek mother
bear sons to grow up free from the
rapine of Turkish hands, but desolate
Athens should rise to her old position,
and, along with Edinsburg, Glasgow,
and Aberdeen, assert its place among
famous European cities that combine
commercial enterprise with cultivated
intelligou e. It was this nob'.e patriotic
pritle that, in the short space of half a
century, turned the little ruined village
into an ininosinjj city. Professor John

When Mark Twain was private secre

when Nevada was admitted to the I'n

Slate in the Senate, says the
San Francisco Call.
If Mark needed any encouragement
in his story-telling proclivities he must
have found it in the society of the Gov
ernor, for as a reconteur he had few su
periors. One of the General's good stories rela
ted to the last hours of a miner who died
in Carson while he was Governor. One
day an old man arrived in town on a
visit to a friend. He had, with varying
luck, been wandering about the mines
of California since the days of lsl',1, but
at last had made a strike, and, learning
wisdom lrom experience, had "salted
down" a snug fortune, determined to
enjoy the evening of his life ia a ra
At the invitation of an old mining
partner he had taken the long stage
journey from "the bay" to the Nevada
capital. Soon after his arrival he was
seized with a serious illness, and his
host, who was a very religious man,
sought to persuade hiin to receive cleri
cal assistance in relieving his con
science of its burden.
Finally the doctor said one day that
the sick man had but a few hours to
live, and suggested that some minister
of the gospel should be asked to make
smooth his exit from the world.
With tears in his eyes his host again
besought his friend to listen to him and
receive the ministrations of a clergy
man. The moribund man, who was ra
pidly sinking, turned on his pillow, aud,
articulating with ditliculty, said:
"I can't see what occasion I have for
the services of a clergyman. I never

Alice Morse Eurle, iu an article ou
"Punishments of Bygone Days," found
in Tim thapbook, after giving John Tay
lor tho Water Poet's rhymed descrip
tions of corporal punishment iu London,
explains how rapidly flogging came into
use iu Boston :
The whipping post was speedily in
full force iu Bo? ton. At tho session of
the court held Nov. 80, 1G80, one man
was sentenced to be whipped for steal
ing a loaf of bread, another for shooting
fowl on the Sabbath, another for swear
ing, another for leaving a boat "with
out a pylott." Then we read of John
Pease that for "siry king his mother aud
deryding her he shalbe whipt. "
Lying, swearing, taking false toll,
perjury, srlling rum to the IudiaiiR all
were punished by whipping. Pious re
gard for the Sabbath was fiercely upheld
by the suppovf of the whipping post. Iu
1643, Roger Hcott, for "repeated sleep

Grant am! "an-uck at a Night Alarm,
When Hancock's headquarters were
reached, the party remained with him
for some time, awaiting the arrival of
the head of Warren's troops. Hancock's
wound received ut Gettysburg had not
thoroughly healed, and he suffered such
inconvenience from it when in the sad
dle that he had applied for permission
to ride in a spring ambulance while on
tho march ar.;l when his troops were not
in action, lie was reclining upon cue
of the seats of the ambulance, convers
ing with (4 ncral Grant, who had dis
mounted and v. as .sitting on the ground
with his back against a tree, whittling
a stick, when the sound of firing broke
forth directly in front. Hancock sprang
up, w iz. d his sword, which was lying
near him, buckled it around his waist
and cried, "My horse, my horse 1" Tho
set no was intensely dramatic and re
called vividly to the bystanders tho cry
of Richard 111 on the field of Bosworth.
Grant listened a moment without chang
ing Lis position or ceasing his whit ding
und then remarked: "They are not light
ing. The firing is all ou one side. It
takes two sides to start a fight." In a
few minutes the firing died away, und
it was found that the enemy was not
advancing. TL incident fairly illus
trates the contrast in the temperaments
of these two distinguished soldiers.
