I think of lier life, and of all that it
had to bear, I see the absolute
triumph of Christian grace in the
lovely ideal of a Christian lady. I
never saw her temper disturbed; I
never heard her speak one word of
nujrer or calumny or "f idle gossip;
I never observed in her any sign of
a single sentiment unbecoming to a
soul which had drunk of the river
of the water of life, and which had
fed upon the manna in the barren
wilderness. The world i- the better
for the passage of such souls across
its surface. 'The healing of the
world is in its namele-s saints. A

thousand scattered stars break up
the night, and make it beautiful."'

Autumn ami Winter Jacket.
Fortunately for many of us the
new jackets diifer very little from
those of a year ago. Almost any
shape and length is admissable and
ny seasonable stuff may be used.
Very elegant in elTect are those
which match the skirt.
The little empire jacket is out in
force. Sometimes it reaches a trifle
below the waist, but most often it
does not quite reach the belt. This,
like the others, is often made to
match a costume, but is oftener
made of velvet, silk or cloth. There
are a short square yoke and a high,
tiaring collar, more or less ornate, as
one may prefer. The lower part is
laid in plaits, sometimes plain deep
box plaits all around, and some
times there will be but one in the
centre of the back and one on each
side in front. These are wider at
the bottom than the top, and are
made so by having that part

Jet fringe will appear on gauzy
evening gowns of color, as well as
those of black. A party gown of
geraneuin pink grenadine with
draped skirt and bodice is trimmed
with jet fringe, which is very fine
and glittering. A white mousseline
cle soie gown is also thus embel
lished. The season of pretty morning
jackets is at hand. The model that
has a yoke at the back, a wide
laced-edged collar and loose front,
is still tho favorite one.
8idi combs come in sets of three
or four, sometimes all hinged to
gether. These are worn on top of
the head about the knot and at the
back, just beneath it. The most
elegant ones of them are jeweled.
The becoming ostrich feather boar
will be more popular than ever.
The swellest shoe for fall wear is
the high laced kid, with dark green
or tan cloth tops. The kid matches
it in color. The toes are long and
pointed, or rounded if preferred.
There are also some with black

suits have hundreds of yards of

have three revers, one above the

CAItK OK TH K SICK-ltOOM.
It Should lie Kent S,iiliiliill v Clean
and Free From Noise.
Mrs. Hnrton Kingsland, writing of
"When Nursing the Kick" in the
September Ladies' Home Journal,
insists that "a tranquil mind is of
the utmost importance to the
patient, and consequently every
thing must seem to be moving
smoothly and easily, no matter
what difficulties the nurse may
have to encounter. The invalid
should not be allowed to feel any
responsibility whatever about his
own case. The sick-room should be
kept scrupulously neat, and made as
cheerful and attractive as possible,
that the eyes of the patient may re-it
with pleasure upon his surround
ings. The nurse herself may con
tribute to the agreeable environ
ment if her own dress be simple and
tasteful, and above all, conspicuous
ly neat. All soiled dishes should be
removed immediately after being
used, and no food kept in sight.
Kven the medicine bottles need not
be obtruively in evidence.
"Ktillness has in itself a power to
soothe, and, as all know, when the
nerves are quiet Natures healing
processes goon without impediment.
Creaking shoes, rustling of gar
ments, the rattling of dishes and
kindred noises are often the occasion
of positive suffering to an invalid.
Jo accidentally jar the bed, to spill
the medicine when administering it,
to close a door noisily, to 'sleep
audibly' are cases where 'a small
unkindness is a great offense' in
the hypersensitive condition of the
nerves or the patient.'
THE ItHUIT KISI OF A HOY.
I know a funny little boy,
The happiest ever born ;
His face is like a beam of joy,
Although his clothes are torn.
I saw him tumble on his nose,
Ana waited for a groan
But how lie laughed! Do you suppose
He struck lus funny-bone?
There's sunshine in each word he
His laugh is something grand :
Its ripples overrun his cheeks
Jake waves on snowy sand.
He laughs the moment he awakes,
And till the day is done;
The schoolroom iTor a joke he takes,
His lessons are but tun.
No matter how the day may go,
You cannot make him cry;
He's worth a dozen boys I know
Who pout and mope and sigh.

It has long been recognized that
the beauty of the body can be in
creased by means of the bath; the
Greeks and Romans had skins like
marble ior smoothness and white
ness. In the stories of famous beau
ties much -is said of their baths.
This one bathed in wine which was
afterwards bottled and sold to the
people, who esteemed it the more on
that account; they nxt bathed in
asses' or goats' milk; another pre
served the beauty of her skin with
rain water only ; a fourth laved in
the juice of crushed strawberries,
which imparted a lovely tint and a
surpassing fragrance to her skin.
All kinds of essences and perfumes
were added to the bath to impart
beauty to the skin and a fragrant
charm to the body of the woman
who often swayed the destiny of
kings and kingdoms. These &ecrets
of the bath are little heeded these
days, though now and then one
hears of the milk and strawberry
bath being used by an actress.
There are certain things that can
be used in the bath to advantage.
A bran bath, for instance, softens and
greatly benefits the skin, especially
a skin easily irritated. Hags of the
bran may be had ready prepared at
the druggist s and are more agree
able to use than bran scattered loose
in the bath, though some writers
say that the bran should come in
direct contact with the skin. A
couple of quarts of bran should be
used for a bath. The addition of
orris root perfumes the skin. A lit
tle borax or ammonia, added to the
water is good for the skin, especially
if the witer is not sott, but too much
should not be used as it makes the
skin dry. The same is true of
alcohol, which is excellent for use
after the bath, making the skin
smooth and firm, and improving its
texture, unless too much is used, or
the skin is naturally dry, when one
should use oil of some kind. De

One of the most encouraging features
of a cure made by S.S.S. (Swift's Specific)
is its permanency. Of all diseases, it is
well known that those of the blood are
the most obstinate, and therefore the
most difficult to cure. The medical
profession, in fact, have virtu illy ad
mitted that a real, deepseated blood
disease is beyond their skill.
Of course, their admission is not made
in so many words, but actions speak
louder than words, and their inability to
cure, after months and often years of
treatment, is sufficient evidence that dis
eases of the blood cannot be cured by
doctors. Their mercurial mixtures, al
though taken faithfully, only cover up
the symptoms of the disease, inducing
the patient to feel that he is being cured;
but when he 19 sooner or later seized
with stiff joints, pain in the bones, etc.,
the evidence of the doctor's patchwork
is conclusive. Such results cannot be ex
pected from the use of S. S. S. Being
purely vegetable, containing no harm
ful mineral ingredients, it is the only
blood remedy which act9 on the true
principle of forcing the disease from
the system, building up rather than
tearing down the health. No loss of
hair, no stiff joints, no decrepit mercu
rial wrecks result from the use of S.S.S.
Mr. H. L. Myers.of 100 Mulberry street,
Newark, N. J., made the mistake of re
lying upon remedies based upon mineral
ingredients, and for the hundreds of
dollars which he invested received only
disappointment in return. He says :
'I was afflicted with a terrible blood
disease, which was in spots at first, but
afterwards spread all over my body.
These soon broke out into sores, and it
is easy to imagine the suffering I en
dured. "Before I became convinced that
the doctors could do no good I had
scent a hundred dollars, which was
really thrown away. I then tried vari
ous patent medicines, but they did not
reach the disease. When I had finished
my first bottle of S.S.S.,Iwas greatly
improved and was delighted with the
result. The large red splotchas on my
chest began to grow paler ana smaller,

er, and my appetite ereatly improved,
I was soon entirely well, and my skin as
clear as a piece of glass."
S.S.S. is a sure cure for all manner
of blood diseases, and disappointment
never results from its use. It is
and one thousand dollars will be paid
for proof that it contains a particle of
mercury, potash, or other mineral. S.S.S.
is sold by all druggists.
