Whenever your life touches nn
other lif' there you have opportu
nity. The finest," the most irresisti
ble' force lies in the mutual touch of
human lives. To mix with men ami
women in the. ordinary forms ot
social intercourse becomes a sacred
function when one carries into it the
true spirit. To give a close, sympa
thetic attention to every human be
ing we touch; to try to fret some
sense of how lie feels, what he is,
what he needs; to make iu some de
gree his interest our own that dis
position and habit would deliver us
from isolation or emptiness. There
is but one suht more beautiful than
the mother of a family ministe-ing
happiness ami sunshine to them all;
and that is a woman who. having no
family of her own, finds her life in
giving cheer and comfort to ull
whom she reaches, and makes a
home atmosphere wherevershe goes.
Though she has not the joy of wife
and mother, she has that which is
most sacred in wifehood and mother
hood. Home Life.

Some uf the New Faiu-le.
There is a new homespun softer
and in more tender tints than it has
ever been produced, and there are
several exquisite new Scotch heath
er mixtures. It almost is impossi
ble for anything new to be imagined
in these well-loved goods, but there
is a something almost as fresh as
the fields of gorse and heather about
them, and over the delicate heather
colors is thrown the faintest sus
picion of a plaid, always a clan plaid
that one versed in the lore of bonny
Hcotland could instantly name.
There is a silkiness, at least in feel
ing, nbout these new mixtures that
makes them doubly precious. No
lady makes a mistake when she
buys a heather mixture, a home
spun or Scotch cheviot. They are
the gentlewoman's own materials.
A new fancy is to have a full jabot
or cascade of lace start from the left
shoulder and follow down that side
and on to the skirt for some inches,
more or less, or it may cross the bust
diagonally and then extend down
the i-kirt to the feet. There maybe
a full cravat r a scanty but grace
ful fill in the front. A pair of
bretelles is often made of lace as
well as sometimes a draped bertha.

Hleeves being close-fitting almost

Bertha frills and epaulettes are re

There is almost as wide a diver
sity in the styles for little girls as
for their mammas. After due con
sideration of this bewildering as
sortment, however, the conclusion
arrived at is that for children from
the age of :5 to 12 there is nothing
more picturesque and at the same
time convenient and comfortable
than the sailor dress. Fortunately
there need be no obtrusive same
ness, as these dresses can be varied
greatly in color and design.
Ribbon is utilized in a thousand
pretty ways in decorating gowns for
both street and house wear. All
varieties, velvet, taffeta, Louisine,
satin, fancy or plain and iu all
widths are brought into requisition,
the baby ribbon being put on in
rows, as well as threaded through
beading and formed in rosettes.
Roth circular and gored skirts are
in vogue and deep llounces are ad
mired on sk'rts of sheer materials
and soft foulard and India silks.

Nothing on earth can smile but
thft race of man. Ciems may flash
reflected light, but what is a dia
mond flash compared with an eye
flash. Flowers cannot smile. This
is a charm which even they cannot
claim. Birds cannot smile nor any
living thing. It is just the preroga
tive of man. It is the light iu the
window of the face by which the
heart signals to father that a friend
is at home waiting. A face that
cannot smile is like a bud that can
not blossom, and dies upon the stalk.
Laughter is day, and sobriety is
night; and a smile is the twilight
that hovers between both, and is
more bewitching than either.
Direction for Spoiling Itoys.
Dr. Talmage says; "If you have a
child invulnerable to all other in
fluences and he can not be spoiled
by any means already recom
mended, give him plenty o' money
without any question as to what he
does with it. The fare is cheap on
the road between here and Smashup
town. I have known boys with $."
to pay their way clear through, and
make all the connections on the
'Grand Trunk' route to perdition."
The l.ntter of Condolence.
She who usually finds it no effort
to write a gracious, happy note, often
recognizes ner limitations when a
letter of condolence is required.
But such sad missives fall to the lot
of all as the years go by. No great
er mistake, fiowever, can be made
than to feel that a letter is impera
tive in every such case. When not
well acquainted with those afflicted
by death, a letter of condolence
should not be sen1;, a visiting card
doing duty instead. There should
be no writing on the card. In such
a case a husband's card always
accompanies tne wire s, wnen a
letter is a necessity it should be
short. A long and rambling letter
adjuring the recipient to bow to a
higher will, or full of religious
resignation and advice, is iu the
worst possible taste. Any reference
to the religious view of such an
affliction may be safely left to the
recipient's pastor. Let your friend
feel that you deeply sympathize
with her and that if you can serve
her in any way it will afford- you
sincere gratification to do so. Edn$
S. Witherspoon in Delineator.
The Decorator and Furnisher says:
"The stiffness has gone from our
drawing-rooms and reception-rooms.
This is even more apparent in the
apartments devoted to home rather
than to social usages.
"While the influence of French
styl has had much to do with the
tasteful fittings of our homes, for
the solid comforts combined with
good taste we have England to
thank in a very great measure, as
any one who has been so fortunate
as to visit her beautiful country
homes will testify.
"From England comes the modern
cozy corner. This came into exis
tence, not only through a love of
their tvsthetic qualities, but through
a natural liking for cozy, comfort
able surroundings as well, which
seems to be inbred in that home
loving race from which we spring.
To make home comfortable, cheer-
I ing, encouraging, to home influences
and surrounding -in a word, livable
is to make it attractive. To make
it homelike we must attend not only
to the absolutely necessary furnish
ings, but we must look to it that
every available corner has its in
"There is, of course, danger of
overdoing and lapsing into "fussi
ness," but good common sense will
come into play, of course, to avoid
this. Another strong factor in
bringing about this "livable"
quality is worthy of attention that
is, let nothing look too good or tco
"fussy" for use. No one takes com
fort on a couch all "kinks and fur
belows," the pillows arranged in
stiff, systematic order."
How ltrnin Worker Should Ka(.
You may flatter yourself that
your ability to think clearly and
to work well is a heaven sent atti

to a limited degree. What do you

cakes, sausages and coffee for
breakfast, and then hie you to
an office where clear thought and
close attention are demanded of
you? If so, you cannot give them

Take those tonics and foods which
digest with leaat trouble fruits,
eggs and milk and with such a
breakfast your brain will be clear.
Your luncheon, if you belong to
the so-called brain workers, should
also consist of viands which are
stimulating and nourishing with but
little digestive effort. A heavy
noonday meal induces ufterno n
somnolence. Eat rather lightly
and eat simple food at noon. In the
evening, when your brain is off duty
