THE COLUMBIA IIEltALl): FM DAY, Al'IUL i!3, 18J7.
I marie this hiltor hrcud myself :
The lour was line uml white
Haw could I (iiK Hs Hiicli liitternusd
Dwelt in ii tiling so linlit?
With my wn hands pluck'd the
TliHt snilU'd tliis awful wine
They looked so tempting ami so fair,
l'urpliiiK upon the vine.
Jiut since made the bresid myself,
Myself pluck'd every crape,
I oat and drink their' bitterness
1 .seek not to escape.
But Hometimes oh, I hu nicer so
For things 1 used to eat!
I dare to sinji a little soii
Of luscious things and sweet.
As some poor, starving bird, perchance,
Crouching on broken wing,
With sudden passionate memory
Of highest heaven might sing.
Tint ere my last note break? and dies
I bow myself and drink
This awful wine, and eat this bread,
And murmur not, nor shrink.
The Tell-Tale Fare.
The fdCfs of the women one passes
in the strett form 9 curious and too
often a paddeninp story. One wo
man purses up her lips, another
screws Iter eye into unnaturalness,
while a third will wrinkle up her
forehead and eyebrows until site
looks absolutely ugly. The trick is
an unconscious one, but it is none
the less a trick and a bad one. There
is no reason why a woman should
look forbidding and bad tempered
just because she is annoyed about
Bomethintr. Deep seated trouble has
a way of writing itself upon the face
whether we will or not. Sickness,
too, has its own handwriting and
M ill not be concealed by art. But
the frown caused by superficial trou
bles should not be entertained by
the face for an inctant. We should
Rtrive to look as pleasant as possible
for the sake of others. A corres
ponding cheerfulness of tempera
ment will inevitably result and al
ways to the sweetening of our na
ture. We cannot alford to go about with
gloomy faces. To depress others is
not for us. Our work is to cheer, to
raise up, to comfort, but we shall
never do this unless we cultivate a
pleasant demeanor and the cheerful
temper inseparable from it. This
brings us that question of warry.
Can we put it more strongly than to
say that it is a duty to put care,
worry, fretfulness, behind one? The
habit must be learned, or we shall
"grow" straight in the strength of
our spirit and live out our life as the
light," as (Swinburne so well puts it.
"It is dilllcult to do that," says some
one. We all know that it is very
hard, but women are not afraid of
difficulties. The more difficult the
right thing is to do the greater rea
son for doing it. All we need is to
make the first etTort. Strength will
be born which will increase at each
subsequent attempt, and we shall
conquer in the end. Salvation for
women lies in this, not to be over
come by troubles, but to overcome
LIFE IS WORTH LIVING.
Is life worth liing? Yes, so long
As spring revives the year,
And hails us with the cuckoo song,
To show that she is here ;
Ho long as May or April takes,
In smiles and tears, farewell,
And wild Mowers dapple all the brakes,
And primrose, the dell ;
While children in the woodlawus yet
Ado'-n their little laps
With ladysmocu and violet.
And daisy-chain their caps;
While over orchard daffodils
Cloud -shadows limit and Meet,
And oii l piM' and leverock trills,
And Young lambs buck and bleat
So lung as ' hat which bursts the
Anil swells and tunes the rill.
Makes the .spiingl ime in the maiden's
Life is worth living still.

Nothing is so terrible as severe

acquire it often enough by the con

neuralgia is a most terrible thing.
It means that while it lasts life is
not worth living. It paralyzes the
power to work, it deprives her of the
power to enjoy anything, it tends
towards irritability of temper, it
tempts to the use of narcotics and
stimulants. New York Ledger.
Transparency and lightness are
distinguishing features of the new
fabrics. Summer textiles perfectly
fulfill their mission as such, both in
appearance and weave. Silks, wool
lens and cottons also show qualities,
which will doubtless maintain their
hold during the season. Solid hues
are prevalent, though combinations,
oftener of tones than of colors, are
also seen. The surfaces of most
good are smooth. s
Linings necessarily play an im
portant role in current modes. They
are readily discernible through the
meshes and preferably contrast with
the goods; striking color studies are
thus made possible.
Many of the novelties are of the
grenadine type. In one of them an
uider surface of color performs the
ofllce of a lining. This color, shown
in all the fashionable hues, gives
life to the upper diaphanous layer of
black. By a clever interweaving of
the meshes of the surface and lin
ing, a watered effect is produced
by no means the least charming fea
ture of the material. These wave
marks appear in a variety of goods.
Fltssed grenadine has a wool ground
varied with puckered satin strips,
which are colored when the surface
is black, and black on a tinted
An open-checked wool fabric in
solid colors is known by various ti
tles, one of the most accurately de
scriptive being ribbon grenadine.
The checks are filled in with a thin
gauze, a most interesting addition.
In Russian-red the material is espe
cially effective, though it appears in
all the fashionable hues. Red is a
favorite color in summer dress
goods, millinery and accessories.
Homespuns in large plaids and
stripes will rival checks for skirts.
In most instances the ground is
white and the squares or stripes are
colored. Many of the new cheviots
are woven loosely like canvas, in
mixtures, checks, stripes and plaids
in healther and other color medleys.
Checked mozambique, really goat's
hair, is a thin and semi-transparent
fabric almost as lustrous as silk.
Mohair moire veious is a new fabric
with the gloss usual to mohair, and
will develop very satisfactorily. '
Silks that "stand alone" belong to
the past. The fasionable silks are
soft and flexible and unusually light
of weight. Clan plaids, checks and
stripes are brought out in poplins,
which figure among the mostcharm
ing types of summer goods. Liberty
poplin is rather thinner and more
lustrous than the Irish poplin. One
specimen in heliotrope bears satin
crescents in a lighter hue, outlined
with irregular dots. Double-warp
surah introduces two colors and
sometimes only two tones and the
figures, which are usually of indefi
nite design, are woven instead of
being printed. Indeed, faconne or
woven figures characterize many of
the new silks. An exception, how
ever, is a moire velours with printed
foulard figures, which in one in
stance are mazarine-blue on a white
ground. This fabric will develop
an admirable summer gown and
win give as satisfactory service as
foulard, being equally light of tex
An entirely new lining material, a
mixture of silk and linen, is called
lusterine. It has a silken gloss and
rustle, is lighter in weight than taf
feta and will be popular as a foun
dation for all sorts of sheer tex
tiles. May Delineator.
Gloves are used most extrava
gantly now, and the woman of fash

The pleasing fancy of Duttinir
dark blue and pure white together
is again one of the pretty ideas of
this spring. A dark blue suit with
white pique or cloth vest with white
braid and white linen collar, cuffs,
etc., is certainly handsome and
more tasteful and becoming. The
dark, dull tndigo blues are very
suitable for quite elderly women,
while the lighter shades may be de
voted to the younger ones.
Shirt waists and blouses remain,
and a genuine blessing these are,
the one bringing comfort on hot
days and the other a dressy effect in
conjunction with a black satin skirt.
The modern blouse may be as simple
as a shirt waist or as elaborate as
the bodice of an evening gown. It
may be well to explain in this con
nection that many of the shirt waists
now preparing for the summer cam
paign are decidedly fanciful, being
frilled, shirred and lace edged until
they are many removes from the
original article with its stiff linen
A pleasing revival is that of accor
ion plaiting, which appears in gowns,
wraps and hat trimmings.
The Baby's Cry.
That babies ought to cry occasion
ally is a fact well known to doctors,
but one which seems to be very
much against the creed of mothers
and nurses. The model babies who
never cry are unnatural speciaiens.
Crying is the only exercise a young
baby gets. It expands the lungs,
causes a better circulation of the
blood and helps on muscular growth.
Of course, fretting when there is
discomfort is to be promptly at
tended to, and screaming, which
might cause rupture, must not be
a'lowel. But a really healthy little
cry, when nothing particular is the
matter save tat baby needs that
mode of expression for his pent-up
feelings this is not the thing to
make everybody run and try to
divert the little one's attention or to
stop him, or get out of the way as if
there was a mule or a runaway
locomotive coming. The noise is
not pleasant, but if we were once
assured that it was a harmless pas
time for baby, most of us could re
concile ourselves to it once in a
while. Not at night. If there is one
lesson more important than another,
it is that darkness and stillness go
together. But although the idsa
may be a novel one, there is some
thing to be said in favor of little
babies being allowed a small crying
spell that is. an exercise spell
during the day, purely upon the
grounds bf health. Florence Hull

A Way to Earn Money.
I know of a dear old lady, who,
through reverses of fortune, became
quite poor; and, in order to add to
her small income, she went out to
take c-ire of children, small babies
especially. Her charges were
moderate, fifty cents a day, twenty
live cents for the evening, if she
was relieved by midnight. She
was a boon to the young mothers
who liked to attend the concerts or
an occasional party, or to spend an
accasional afternoon in shopping
or making calls. They knew their
little ones were in good hands, for
she thoroughly understood the care
of babies. This did not necessitate
continuous work, nor did she have
to leave home long at a time, but it
brought in many dollars. She was
often called upon by a young mother
when the baby was ill, or when the
mother was ill and could not take
care of her child. The woman who
undertakes this work assumes con
siderable responsibility ; hence she
must thoroughly understand and
enjoy it. It is an especially nice
field of labor for elderly ladies, who
have given up keeping their own
house and live with their children.
There are many who would be glad
to undertake it, had it ever occurred
to thein to do so, and who would be
equally glad of the money they
would thus earn. The Household.
A Standing Welcome.
That informal entertaining is on
the increase the least observing may
note. It Iihs become the fashion to
be hospitable. Madam may not be
numbered among those who give
large entertainments or beautiful
and costly dinners, but her friends
know that her hearty welcome
awaits them always, and that they
can make her happy by dropping in
to luncheon or for a cup of afternoon
tea. The fashion of laying an extra
plate at the table for the friend who
may appear at tne last moment, is
happily growing. A chance guest
does not then feel that the table is
turned upside down by his coming.
Madam's welcome is gracious and
genuine and whether her luncheon
is much or little it is shared with
delight. After all, it is a foolish
over-estimation of trifles that makes
the poor hostess. She is wise who
has learned to say nothing about
deficiencies. To be burdened with
apologies that the reception room
is not in order or this or that dish is
not quite perfect, is to have one's
attention called to the disorderly
rooms and to find less enjoyable the
food that was thought quite de
The ideal hostess recognizes that
there is something in entertaining
besides feasting. She may possess
but the one maid of all work and yet
have a most charming home to
which the guests feels it a privilege
to come. When the guest is ex
pected the hostess has especial
opportunity for graciousness. True
hospitality consists in making a
guest feel at home. The vestibule
may contain "Welcome"' in hand
some mosaics, but if there be no
cordiality on the part of the hostess,
it will seem but a mockery. The
old Roman vestibule sometimes
bade one "beware of the dog," and
while such a warning brings a shud
der now it bears close relationship
to the inhospitable doormat direc
tion to wipe one's feet. Gracious
hospitality is largely made up of
small attentions the dainty bouquet
put in the guest's room, the maga
zine or book left there for her enjoy
ment, the tiny work-basket with the
needed equipment and, cowning
all, the tact and good nature of the
host and hostess. Kxchange.

Avocation is not synonomous with
vocation. A man's vocation is his
calling, his business; his avocations
are the things that occupy him inci
