This world is a we make it,

If we are h:uI hihI tearful.
The world will mmmii that way;
And if we seek the dark side!
Where everything wronir,
And nee mole-hill as mountains,
Our lives will seem too lony;.
Hut if we seek life's sunshine,
Sweet joy to others give,
And nail'v elimh life's mountains,
As though we're fihul to live;
To overcome disaster.
And Minshine 'round us shower
To make our dear friends happy
Then joy will lie our dower.
The world is hut a mirror,

If we look at it eiossly
To us t'will not look kind;
Hut if we smile upon it,
It will he joyous, too;
No matter how we see it,
'Twill give us our own view.
So, when the world seems dreary,
And life seems hitter, too,
Just ask vour disposition
It it can fetterdo;
And, if it turns to sunshine,
The world w ill look so bright

How dark has heeti the night.
Music In the Home.
V'We do not have enough music In
the home." writes Mary C Stetson
in The Woman's Home Companion.
"Children who sing at their work
will hardly quarrel, and parents
whosiiitf will find the burden of
their task irov lighter. Ther is
rest and recreation in music. Once
a frail minister who thought the
progressive wheels of the world's
work would stop if he took a vaca
tion, slept and dreamed a dream.
He dreamed that he died and ap
peared before the Lord. The Lord
seemed surprised to see him, and
asked: 'What did you coinesosoon
for? Why did you not take needed
rest and recreation, and so prolong
your life!' The minister waked and
went to Europe, recovered his health,
is alive to-day, and is known for in
spiring words all over America.
"I wish that every mother could
dream this dream. Th world may
snare her, hut her home cannot.
There are no children but need a
mother's care and love. They are
more responsive and obedient to a
tie of blood than to a tie created by
law. Does she inquire, then, how
she can econom'ze her forces, that
they may last; how she can burn
less fuel, that her little fire of life
may burn brightly and long? My
answer is. let women try to give to
things their true importance. It
will make no difference in a week's
or a year's time how windows and
woodwork look to-day, but it will
make a difference whether the
children are perfectly nourished
physically and trained mentally. '
"'Learn to do the most Important
things first, and if your strength
ebbs, learn to let the minor things
wait; sing inspiring songs. Try to
get something out of life for all you
nut into it. JMijoy something to
day, for to-morrow may not be
yours. People ought to get more

"This generation is greatly in
debted to both secular and religious
schools for developing the talent for
music in our young people. Bayard
Taylor wrote, 'The gift of song was
chieily lent to give consoling music
for the joys we lack.' There is no
other talnt which can contribute 60
much happiness to u home.
"The charm of music is great. Tt
hushes the infant to rest. At t'.ie
family altar it lifts the soul in wor
ship to (iod and heaven. In the
liome it, fosters the home spirit and
strengthens family ties. Encourage
the cliiMren to sing. It matters not
vh"ther there is much music in
their voices or not; there is music
in their souls from which the effort
springs, and that is enough. If the

DR. J. A. DEANE CO.,
Kingston, N. Y.
Are you out of
gowns tailored. They are to be
worn with shirt-waists, leather
belts, linen collar and ties. Pique
suits are similar in style, and are
also trimmed with the soutache
braiding or braid put on in rows,
and the material is ot a softer finish.
Pique comes in a wide range of
plain colors as well as in stripes and
small all-over patterns. Black and
white pique is allowed even for deep
mourning, and the pink, light green
and blue shades make lovely suits
to be worn with dotted Swiss waists
trimmed with yellowish lace.
Pique costs from fifteen to seventy
five cents a yard ; the medium-sized
com is considered the best. The
facing on the skirt of such a fabric
should be fitted to the shape of the
skirt; an ordinary bias piece will
not shrink and will iron as smoothly
as the outside material. Then there
is a crisp cotton forty inches wide
and forty cents a yard, in plain,
striped and checked effects, in light
ana dark colors, that is very service
able for odd skirts. It is really a
canvas weave, and it is claimed that
it will never lose its stiffness. It
washes well and does not need any
lining, the crisp feeling giving it it's
title. The material is intended for
jacket suits, but I think it best for
skirts oidy. White and dark blue
pique skirts are most suitable for
wear with cotton shirt-waists. April
Ladies Home Journal.
Harriet Palmer Crahhe.
Long have I sought for a happy face,
Oft have I sought for a mind content;
We waste our days in an endless race
For pleasures that soon are spent.
A weary strinjele for silver and gold,
An endless effort for glory and fame;
Our efforts are endless, our struggles
Still farther our object, still higher
And happiness knocks at our door in
She is clothed in the garb of the toiler;
We bar the door in cold disdain,
Thus being our own despoiler.
Then happiness sorrowfully turns
And leaves us alone to our fate;
When she is gone we bid her stay,
We know her worth when too late.
The Prettieat Gownn of All.
Organdy has taken the first place
among washable fabrics for two sea
sons, and this summer will be more
in use than ever. White, green,
yellow, blue and piuk grounds ob
tain with brilliantly-hued blossoms
over the surface, the color being re
peated in the linings and ribbon.
These gowns are the most elaborate
made for summer, and in plain
whit-i are the favorite dresses for
bridesmaids and girl graduates.
Deep cream and yellow Valen
ciennes lace is the daintiest of trim
mings, and where the insertion Is
used it should be inserted in the
material, not laid on the outside.
Lace edging is whipped on a tiny
rolled hem for the ruffles of the
dress goods. Tho thin dresses are
all made entirely separate from the
lining, and no matter how thin the
material the skirts are gored and
five yards wide. A pretty, round
waist, made with shoulder and side
seams only, has three clusters of
three half-inch tucks in each, and
on the lower tuck of each cluster is
a ruille of three-inch lace. The
tops of the full coat sleeves are
treated with similar clusters and
lace, and the entire effect is deli
cately airy. IJolero fronts, edged
with a lace ruffle and lengthwise
strips of lace, trim organdy waists,
and there are small jacket fronts of
lace with a collar back for seven to
ten dollars that trim a waisl, with
the welcome addition of ribbon.
Fine tucked material, which is
called lingerie tucking, is a promi
nent feature for all cotton gowns.
They may be cross or lengthwise,
but they must be somewhere on all
the summer dresses. Edging the
tucks with a narrow frill of lace
gives a dainty, fluffy appearance,
now much appreciated by women
with slender figures. Exchange.
In the fullness of youth, wealth,
beauty and love were hers. Yet all
her dreams were of fame.
'I will write a great book,
said, "and my name shall be
every lip, and my praises
throughout the laud
So, in the joy and vanity of youth,
she wrote her book. But fame
stood a long way off. Then, as time
passed, sorrow came into her life.
Grief blotted out ambition and
dreams of fame were forgotten.
Rut once more she took up her'
"I will write a book," she said
again, "and it shall be not for the
multitude, but for the few who have
suffered as I have suffered. It shall
speak to them as a sister speaks,
and give counsel and courage and
So she wrote her book. And it
was a book not for the few, but for
the multitude. For all had suffered.
And her name was upon every lip
and her praises were sung through
out the land.
And lo, fame had come. Ladles
Olive Harper has described for us
two lovely gowns suitable for the
maidens' first communion. One was
made of white cashmere, the skirt
severely plain. The sleeves were the
popular French style, with rows of
lace half an inch wide set at equal
distances all down the waist. The
olflaVAa warn lrkcA autra u f rhu tnn
where there were two puffs. Tho
high stock was of white satin, with
a narrow ruffle of lace. There was a
sash of white satin ribbon ten inches
wide, fringed deeply at the bottom.
A little satin chatelaine bag hung
on narrow white ribbons at the left
side. The veil was of tulle, un-
hemmed. and held in place by a
wreath of white roses put on outside
of the veil. White kid slippers
with bows of ribbon completed this
pretty communion dress. The
other was of white dimity, the
skirt gathered, deeply hemmed and
tucked. The full waist was shirred
to fit around the neck. The sleeves
were tight and had gathered caps,
and there was a ruffle at the wrists
and neck of soft mull. The pointed
girdle was of white ribbon silk. The
veil was of fine net hemmed two
inches wide all around. There was
a close little mull cap witli ruchiug
of silk muslin, and this tied under
the chin. The veil was tackod to
the cap. White kid button boots
went with this. Any of the white
materials are suitable for these little
dresses. Common sense suggests
that the gowns should be such that
they can be worn all summer by the
addition of other ribbons and trim
ming. Good taste suggests that too
expensive dresses for such an oc
casion would savor of vulgarity.
Manner v. Manner.
One of the most charming posses
sions of the well-bred women is her
elegant manner. She who has ac
acquired the letter of refined social
intercourse but has not yet caught
its spirit, fails lamentably. She
may long since have learned to take
her soup from the side of the spoon,
but she is still lacking in the navoir
aire that makes really well bred
people delightful. Mrs. Nouveau
Riche may have manners in plenty,
but may also be without "manner"
in the elegant acceptance of the
word. She may be beautifully and
artistically clad, but if she fusses
with her ribbons or gloves and re
peatedly adjusts portions or her at
tire, she shows that she is not at
home in her fine raiment. The
elegant woman has mental as well
as physical poise and is equal to
emergencies. She is mistress of any
situation, keeping her temper
though the heavens seem about
to fall in kitchen or clubroom. She
has also learned the power of speech.
Nature may have been sparing in
external favors, but if she has a cul
tivated voice and talks well, her
attractiveness passes beyond mere
The woman who desires to be at
tractive knows that, a voice loud
and shrill spoils the most beautiful
of her sex. And not alone her
voice, but also her manner of speech,
has weight in determining her
dainty elegance. The nervous wo
man who rattles on, regardless of
what she says or how she says it,
has not learned how much her man
ner or speech condemns her. Not
all women have the low, sweet voice
aoout wnicn tne poets sing, but a
voice however harsh may be im
proved. April Delineator.

To Cook Mat.
Mrs. Itoer says the ratio of water
in meat, fish and fowls is quite
uniform, but the proportion of fat
and albuminoids snows the widest
diversity. Beef contains more
nourishment than mutton; the lat
ter, however, is more easily digested
The more albumin flesh contains
the more tender it is. Lamb, veal
and spring chickens are more tender
than the luu-grown or the same
species. But as albumin is more
difficult of digestion when over
cooked, these immature must all be
well cooked to be eatable, as they
require five hours for perfect diges
tion. Lamb and chicken require
less time than veal.
The internal organs of animals, as
liver, tripe, sweetbreads, heart and
kidneys, are also used as food.
Sweetbreads and tripe, being a part
01 the digestive viscera, are the
most easily digested of all animal
foods, requiring but one hour. If
kidneys are used they should be
taken from young animals. This is
true, also, or the liver. Calf s and
lamb's livers may be perfectly
wholesome food, but livers of the
older animals should be avoided

struck a light and hurridly dressed, the
water by this time being two feet in
his down stairs bed-room. He waded
in water waist deep to a spot where an
old canoe has been lying on th high
ground. The canoe was in such a con
dition that he could not secure it. lie
immediately swam back to his house
and found the water by this time to be
seven feet deep in the lower story, lie
groped his way up-stairs, crawling out
of a window and reached the roof of his
dwelling, a large two-story frame. The
house by this time had washed from its
foundation and in this perilous con
dition floated down the river for four
hours. He was then overtaken by a
man in a skiff with two women anil a
child who took him aboard. After
floating about for several hours, the
party made a landing near the scatters
of the Obion River. From there Mr.
Hopkins, who is a bachelor and a
preacher, made his way to Dyersburg
where he now is. When the overflow
came Mr. Hopkins was well fixed in
