THE COLUMBIA HERALD: F1MDAV, OCTOIIEU tl'.K 18!7.
W II EN IWI'.Y WAS A LITTLE HOV.
"When pana was a little hoy
Ymi really couldn't rind
In all the N'ute of Washington
A child BO(iiick to mind.
His mother never called lint once,
And pa was always there;
He never made the laly cry,
Or pulled hid .sinter's hair.
"He never slid down banisters,
Or made the alikrht.est noise;
And never in his life was known
To tiitht with other boys.
He always studied hard at school,
And K"t his lessons rich t ;
And chopping wood awl milking cows
Were papa's chief delight.
"lie always rose at six o'clock
And went to bed at eiirht,
And never lay abed till noon
And never sat up Ute.
He finished Latin, French and Greek
When he was ten years old,
And knew the Spanish alphabet
As soon as he was told.
"He never grumbled when he had
To do the evening chores,
And ne'er in all his life forgot
To shut the stable floor.' . ,..'''- ;
He never, never thought of play - :
I'ntil his work was done,
He labored hard from break of day
Until the set of sun.
4,He never scraped his muddy shoes
l.'pon the parlor floor,
And never answered hack his ma,
And never banged thodoor.
Hut truly, I eould never see,"
Said little Dick Malloy,
'How he could never do these things,
And really lie a hoy."
The rare of Cheerfnliie.
In this aire of hurry and flurry and
intense activity, along all lines of oc
cupation as a people, we oftentimes
are untrue to ourselves and forgetful
of our God by neglecting to be cheer
ful and friendly one toward another.
Nothing- tends to promote happiness
in all departments of life more than
a kind and friendly spirit. Too of
ten persons beginning in life to mak
a name and reputation in the world
make a snd mistake by being so en
grossed with the affairs of their busi
ness and their self-interests that
they become cheerless, cold and in
different to everything and every
body about them. And while such
persons are ofttimes successful in
life, as a rule their lives are miser
able failures. Who does not admire
the hearty, friendly hand clasp of
another; who will resent the sweet
smile of friendliness of a neighbor;
who will regret the cheerfulness
of his own actions? Cheerfulness
means kindness, for we can be cheer
ful ojuy when we are kind.
A t-EUFKCT KINGDOM.
A man can build a mansion
And furnish it throughout,
A man can build a palace
With lofty walls and stout;
A man can build a temple
With high and spacious dome,
Hut no man in the world can build
That precious thing called Home.
No, 'tis our happy faculty,
) women, far and wide.
To turn a cot or palace
Into something else beside:
Where brothers, sous and husbands
With willing footsteps come;
A place of rest, where love abounds
A pel feet kingdom Home.
Fur for Wlntr Wear.
Woman's thoughts are now turn
ing naturally toward the cozy
warmth of furs and fur-trimmed
garments; consequently there is a
lively interest in the discussion as to
which furs promise to be most fa
vored this winter. iSable, the rich
est of all furs, will lead the way,
closely followed by sealskin, which
in point of fact never is out of fash
ion. There are to be countless com
binations not only of different furs,
but cloth, lace and Jewelled em
broideries. Hable used in conjunc
tion with seal is destined to be first
favorite. Mink, Persian lamb and
seal are among the popular trim
mings for outer garments. Furs are
becoming much employed in con
junction with brocades and velvets,

Chinchilla, with its soft, dainty
tones of gray, will occupy a promi
nent place among fashionable furs
this winter, both alone and in com
bination with sealskin. It will be
used for evening mantles too.
The shapes in fur garments are al
most without number. There is a
wide choice of lengths and styles In
wraps, some of which end at the
waist; others fall below the knees.
The Russian coat is a prime favorite
in fur and fur-trimmed garments,
just the same as it is in all cloth gar
ments. The regular Russian blouse
is seen made of Persian lamb. Many
of the newest sealskin coats are made
in the full pouched shape, both back
and front, to which our eyes have

The fox furs, both silver and white,
ar in demand among those who can
afford them, but are too costly and
perishable for the average buyer. An
excellent substitute for silver fox
when made up into capes and muffs
is badger fur. The white fox is used
as a lining for expensive evening
cloaks, while silver fox is an ideal
trimming for a winter gown.
Fur capes are of various lengths,
some being quite short. Fur cloaks
The sudden popularity of the fur
has caused an advance in th price
of coonskins; but for those unattract

and broadtail will be as desirable as
ever. Once more lace is used to con

the warm depths of fur, while
jeweled belts will zone the waist of
all those whose tastes and purses
allow them to accept this pleasant
edict of Dame Fashion.
Smart Homemade Gowns.
A surprising number of the well
dressed women you meet are arrayed
in costumes manufactured by their
own hands. Borne of the smartest
cycling costumes worn are "home
made," as aremany handsomestreet
and evening dresses. Yet so well
and so cleverly are they constructed
that there is never a hint of "home
madeness" about them.
It used to be, much more so than
at the present time, that those who
could not afford the eervices of a
dressmaker were the ones who made
their own clothes. Indeed it was
not unusual to hear a woman boast
fully remark that she could not
thread a needle or sew a straight
seam, so Ignorant was she of sewing.
Nowadays many well-to-do women
consider it a great accomplishment
to be able to bo Independeutof dress
makers. They have learned how to
sew, how to cut and fit and drape.
Their sewing rooms are fitted with
modern appliances. There is aform
over which skirts may be hung and
justed. A bust form, over which
corsages may be draped and arrang
ed, is one of the necessary adjuncts.
Where the home dressmaker has not
supplied herself with a "system"
she is guided in her cutting by "pat
terns." It is the woman of limited means
who derives the greatest benefit
from knowing how to sew well, for
oftentimes the expense of a dress is
not in the material, but in the mak
ing. Therefore she who makes her
own may afford two dresses for the
price of one. Katheriue Worden in

tainly she is the wise mother who
knows when to be conveniently

There can be no hard and fixed laws
in regard to the management of lit
tle ones without doing them a cruel
injustice. 8ometimes a child is sick,
nsrvous, unstrung, and the fault
that another time might be punished
should be ignored. Indeed one is
tempted to say thatt o much man
agement, too many rules, a contin
ual reminding of little breaches of
manner or grammar, are worse than
no management at all. There has
always been a wistful pathos in the
story of the little boy who thought
his name was "Johnny Don't."
"Rut that is impossible," urged some
one. "It is what they call me at
home," persisted the little fellow in
all good faith. Perhaps this kindly
cultivated virtue of timely blind
ness is only another name for tact.
It ignores all that is unpleasant and
wisely judges of the appropriate
ness of time and season. When we
come home tired and worn, it is
blind to the fact that we have
thrown ourselves on the best sofa
and deposited our hat on the floor.
When we are absorbed with grief or
worry, it does not see the brusque
ness with which we may have an
swered a question. There Is no
other quality than this convenient
blindness which makes so much for
The person who has nothing to do
is unfortunate. We were made to
work. For that reason there is joy in
achieving. Our reward is not meas

satisfaction is in the success we
have in beholding the results of our
endeavors. In the church the same
rule holds. Home good people are
spoiling for the want of good works.
The spirit languishes unless it re
news its strength in the service of
the Lord. Spiritual achievement
and spiritual vigor go hand in hand.

The alarming increase in the number
of deaths which occur as the result of a
surgical operation is attracting general
attention, and a strong sentiment
against inch methods of treatment is
fast developing among the most intelli
gent classes. It seems that in almost
every case for which the doctors' treat
ment ! unsuccessful, the learned physi
cians decide at once that an operation
mast be performed, and the keen blade
of the surgeon is recklessly resorted to.
Doctors are human, and of coarse are
liable to make mistakes, but their mis
takes are too fatal to be indulged in
promiscuously, and as so many lives are
sarificed in this manner, it is bat natural
for the public to believe that half the
operations are unnecessary, besides be
ing a fearful risk to human life, even if
It is a positive fact, however, that all
operations are not necessary, and that a
majority of them are absolutely under
taken without the slightest chance of
success. The doctors have never been
able to care a blood disease, and a sur
gical operation is their only method of
treating deep-seated caces, such as can
cer and scrofulous affections. Aside
from the great danger, an operation
never did and never will cure cancer, as
the disease never fails to return. Can
cer is in the blood, and common sense
teaches anyone that no disease can be
cat from the blood.
Here is a case where the pain inflicted
on a six-year-old boy was especially
cruel, and after undergoing the tortures
produced by the surgeon's knife he rap
idly grew worse. Mr. J. N. Murdoch,
the father of the boy, residing at 279
Snodgrass street, Dallas, Texas, writes :
"When my son, Will, was six years
old, a small sore appeared on his lip,
which did not yield to the nsual treat
ment, but before long began to grow. It
gave him a great deal of pain, and con
tinued, to spread. He was treated by
several good doctors, who said he had
cancer, and advised that an operation
"After much reluctance, we consented,
and they cut down to the jaw bone,
which they scraped. The operation was
severe one, but I thought it was the
onlv hope for my hoy. Before a great
while the cancer returned, and began to
grow rapidly. We gave him many rem
edies without relief, and finally upon the
advice of a friend, decided to try S.S.S.
(Swift's Specific), and with the second
bottle he began to improve. After twenty
bottles bad been taken, the cancer dis
appeared entirelv and be was cured.
The cure was a permanent one, for he is
now seventeen years old, and has never
had a sign of the dreadful disease to re
turn." S.S.S. is far ahead of all other blood
remedies, because it is the only one
which cures deep-sea'ed obstinate blood
diseases, such as Cancer, Scrofula,
Eczema, Catarrh, Rheumatism, etc.
It is the only Hord remedy guaranteed
containing not a particle of mercury,
potash, or other mineral ingredient,
which are so injurious to the system.
S.S.S. is sold by all druggists.
