THE COLUMBIA UEKaLD: FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 18S.
Yonder is a littlo drum, hanging on tho
Dusty wreaths and tattered flags
round about it fall.
A shepherd youth on Cheviot's h'lls
watched the sheep whose skin
A ounnim? w.trkman wrought, and
l?;ive the little drum its din.
And happy wan the shepherd-boy while
tending of hU fold,
Nor thought he there was in tho
world a s)ii, like Cheviot's wold.
And so It .a f r in my a day; but a
change with time will come,
And he (ula. for him the day!) he
heard the liule drum.
"Follow;" said tho drummer-boy,
"would you live iu story! .
For he who strikes a foeinin down
wins a wreath of jrlorv "
liub-n-dub! ami r b-a-rfnbV' the drum
mer beats away.
The shepherd lets his bleating iloek
on Cheviot wildly stray.
On Egypt's arid waste of sand the shep
herd now is lying;
Around him many a parch in u; tongue
for "water" vainly crying
Oh that ho were on Cheviot's hills, with
velvet verdure spread,
Or lying 'mid the blooming heath
where oft he made his bed ;
Or could he drink of those sweet rills
that trickle to its vales,
Or breathe oneo more the balminess
of Cheviot's mountain gales!
At lonpth upon his wearied eyes the
mists of elumber come,
And he is in his home again, till
wakened by the drum.
"To arms! to arins!" his loader cries;
"The foe, the foe is nigh!'1
Guns loudly roar, steel clanks on
steel, and thousands fall to die.
The shepherd's blood makes red the
sand. "Oh water give me some!
My voice might reach a friendly ear,
but for that littlo drum !"
'Mid moaning men and dying men the
drummer kept his way,
And many a one by "glory" lured ab
horred thdrum that 'day.
"Rub-a-dub I and ntbn-dub!" the drum
mer beat aloud.
The shepherd died ; and ere the morn
the hot sand was his shroud.
And this is "glory." Yes; and still will
man tho tempter follow,
". Xor learn that glorv, like its drum, is
but a sound, and hollow.

"The first lesson for a debutante
to learn ia that she Is not the only
debutante in the room and that
every eye ia by no means fixed upon
her. Remember that each little de
butante is just as much occupied
with herself as you are and each
mother who sits ranged aeainst the
wall la thinking very deeply of he'
own particular litt'e duckling- that
has turned so suddenly into a swan.
To realize this fact that is, that
every one is not looking at you
may be a shock to the vanity, but it
will do more to lessen that painful
shyness so wisely called by the
French faux home than anything
else in the world.
"No one really knows or remem
bers whether you were out iu a cer
tain figure of the gertnan or not, and
if you are left alone there Is no use
worrying and feeling mortified until
by the time some one does turn up
you have not th 9 spirit left to make
'The most absolute necessity for
being a favorite in every sense of
the word is sweetness; not sur
face sweetness, but that genuine
kindliness of heart which makes
us considerate for all about us
at home as well as abroad, and
which is jiiht as sure to make itself
evident as the tea rose is bound to
exhale its exquisite perfume.
"Never say mean things about
anyone, lour hearers may laugh
at the time, but instinctively they
feel they may be the next to sutler,
and one by one they will drop away
from you; for there is nothing so
absolutely killing as ridicule.
"Never try to keep a man with
you against his will. You may suc
ceed very well for once or twice,
but he is bound to feel more or less
'stuck,' and in the end will avoid
you. After all, your belledom is not
for one or two years, but perhaps
for a good many, especially iu
America, where the girls marry late,
and you don't want to make friends
for only one season.
"Accept attention with so sweet a
Willingness that the other will be
positively glad he ottered it, and if
you have to decline do it as
graciously and as kindly as you can.
"Never be late at dinner or keep
any one waiting, and make a point
of always speaking as soon a pos
sible and most deferentially to the
elderly people in a room.
"With these small hiuts a3 to the
manner, and the greater one as to
sweetness, which should be in our
lives what the warp is in some beau
tiful piece of tapestry, a young girl
can thoroughly enjoy life and find a
warm place in the hearts about;

Mark'stthou the strange, sweet radi

As to veils, the chenille dotted
nets are, no doubt, the most iu fash
ion. If lace veils are worn at all,
they must be of superfine quality.
A cheap lace veil does not need a
price-tag to declare its class.
Oculists may look forward to an
increase of business with reasonable
assurance. Any sort of a dot is try
ing enough to the eyes, but iu this, a
jeweled dot is the leader. How
ever, the jeweled veil is pretty.
Over a line olack net .iuy enierals
glass, of course widely scattered,
create an undeniably pretty etlect.
A white net is dotted over ia jet
beads. The black veil Is the most
modish and forms the best back
ground for the jewels.
Jabots of various embroidered
gauzes, or of lace, are long enough
to reach just half way down the
front of the bodice. These .are
pinned on in front to the plain vel
vet collar, and give a dressy touch
to a plain waist that is often quite
desirable. The fluffy little bunches
are wonderfully becoming as well as
convenient. There are many very
pretty "ready-made" collars now in
glace silk, with little frills of chiffon
in mixtures of black and white or
in color. The newest thing, I be
lieve, in the adjustable collar is cu
in the shape of a turn-down collar
with deep points in front and a large
bow beneath. In linen appears this
same model, only rather narrower,
and with it a silk bow.
Little or no trimming is put at the
back of the collar. Occasionally
one sees lace frills at the top of col
lars, Just at the back, but the lace
falls softly and hasn't the stiff ap
pearance of the pleatings of silk
that were fashionable a short time
ago. A gown of black satin worn
recently by a fashionable ma
tron, had stock anijj bet. of blue
green velvet. At' the back of the
stock was a full ruche" o,f" ecru lace,
with narrow black satin ribbon
edge. The entire effect was very
Large, soft ruches of, fine black
tulle will be worn to a considerable
extent with the sm ill toques that
are to lead in millinery this spring.
Very little of the high linen col
lar, will be seen, as the fashionable
mode In ties, wraps twice about the
neck, tied either in a- smart bow or
four-in-hand. This fashion is uni
versally becoming. The wide band
of white linen was very trying to
many faces. The ribbon scarf com
ing up close to the neck lends a be
coming touch of color and is alto
gether more femjrjlne and less
severe than the inch or two of stiff
white linen and narrow string tie.
French piques in shades of bluff,
blue and pink will be very modish.
Home of the dantiest and freshest
shirt waists are made of white per
cale, with the tiniest of pink or blue
dots or tiny leaves or sprigs. These
goods are vry quaint, and for, many
years we have been well acquainted
with their splendid wearing and
Snowy white shirt waists of per
cale with fronts beautifully em
broidered in colored linen are
simply exquisite. These, of course,
are for midsummer wear. The first
shirt waist purchases should be con
fined to the heavier and more de
cidedly colored ones.
In very fine ginghams there are
mixtures of blues and greens, deli
cate purples and green and other
color mixtures, which, if properly
washed, will not fadp.
Any amount of tucking Is used in
the shirt waists. Tucks run up and
down and across the fronts, and
form yokes, either back or front.

And it's the man who does the best
That gets more kicks than all the rest.
JAMKS WHITCOMU It I LEY.
The Combined Seat and Skirt Box.
One of the most satisfactory skirt
boxes (we will call it this for want
of a better name) that I have seen
tands between the two windows iu
the dining-room of a busy woman's
neat home. This box, I was told, is
proof against moths; consequently
its interior arrangement is worthy
of note between this time and the
time to fold away blankets or other
liig sheets of wrapping paper,
heavy and thick, like that express
packages are done in, was first
tacked smoothly over the inside of
the box. Than white gl izod cambric,
su.'h as can be bought for 4 cents a
yard, was put over this, the glazed
side out. A row of brass-headed
tacks fastened an extra width of (he
cambric, hemmed at the ends, to
each side of the box and at the two
ends. These extra pieces are de
signed to fold over and tuck in when
the box is full. When woolen arti
cles are to be kept for any length in
this box handfuls of cedar shavings
are scattered through them. The
odor of cedar is not unpleasant, and
iu a box lined as described will an
swer the purpose of Reeplng away
moths quite as well as many of the
ill-smelling concoctions that have
come into use of late.
The paper and cambric lined box
is invaluable for keeping starched
cotton frocks and skirts in. Cotton
garments soon become limp and
stringy if hung on pegs, and the big
bx permits of their being laid
smooth without folding, and keeps
out dampness perfectly. 80 much
in favor of the skirt box.
The prettiest and most serviceable
covering for the outside of one of
these boxes is denim in plain colors,
or In Bagdad stripes, if one wants a
bit of brightness about the room.
An excellent padding for the too is
an old quiit that is too worn to ap
pear us a bed covering. After wash
ing and drying this thoroughly, fold
it us wide as the box top, stretch a
heavy piece of muslin lightly over
it, nailing the muslin around the
edges of the box lid. The denim
cover with wide flounce should be
finished completely and tacked on
lightly, though securely, with brass
headed tacks. The lower part of
the box is covered smoothly with
the material lapped at all the corn
ers and fastened with the brass tacks
in close rows. The inside of the lid
is lined with the heavy paper.
Smaller boxes for shoes are made
and covered in the same way, but
have a lining of oilcloth. Starch
boxes and soap boxes answer very
well for shoe box purposes.
The Growing Girl.
Dr. Mary Putnam Jacobl talked
recently at a mothers' meeting of
"The Care of the Growing Girl."
8he touched upon phases ot the sub
ject that had a deeper import to
some of those present than the mere
abstract "mothering" might imply.
The Doctor was eminently practi
cal in ner beginning. There were
sensible clothing and healthful diet
and what not to be thought of. And
the mothers nodded sagely.
''But gymnastics, you know, are
utterly absurd for a girl wheu she
can do housework instead." This
was a new view of the matter. "No
need to swing dumbbells and clubs,"
said the speaker, "when , they can
sweep and beat mattresses at home."
The Meal Service.
Human nature Is so susceptible to
externals, whihgood digestion is so
dependent upon the conditions sur
rounding us, that all the accessories
of pleasant environments neatness,
cheeriness and good breeding
should be brought into requisition
for the daily gathering of the family
at mealtime. The dining-room
should be one of the airiest.pleasant
est rooms in the house. Let plants,
flowers and pictures have a place in
its appointments, that the associa
tion with things bright and beauti
ful may help to set the keynote of
our own lives in cheerful accord.
The hour of meal service should
be made cheery with bright, spark
ling, and appropriate conversation,
that the; only attraction about the
meal may not be merely the food. It
seems to tne that the table conversa
tion, if properly directed, can be
made to serve as a most efficient
help in .educating children to under
stand that the purpose of eating is
not merely the appeasement of hun
ger or the gratification of the palate,
but the acquirement of strength tor
labor or study, that we may be bet
ter fitted for usefulness in the world.
If of all the family gatherings that
of meal-time is made the most gen
ial and pleasant and one in which
the children cin participate, the
meal-time will be hailed with de
light because of the social pleasure
it affords, while the mere pleasure
of. eating will take a second place
The'toenefits which will thus accrue
from such a "feast of reason and
flow of soul" are many. Not only
will it help in making appetite sub
servient, but it will aid digestion,
and, if properly planned, the table
talk may be an excellent means of
stimulating thought and conversa
tional powers in the children. St.

The Parasite iu Human Form.
Get all you can and give as little
as possible, ia the motto of the hu
man parasite. He reaches out, he
grasps, he bores into, and absorbs.
He shields himself in all possible
ways against the danger of being re
quired to give ; he carefully watches
for every possible chance to take.
His purpose is to live and absorb, re
gardless of who sutlers because he
live and absorbs. "Let live" has
no place iu his creed, is no part of
his motto. What is he good for?
To exemplify the repulsiveness of
selfishness; to make those on whom
he fattens "scratch for a living;" to
demonstrate through all eternity
how miserable a man becomes and
remains when he permits selfishness
and greed to take firm root in him,
grow, and go to seed. The leeth is
slimy, the louse is repulsive, the
aphid is mean, the caterpillar Ij
greedy, but it is only iu the human
parasite that all these qualities
ripen Into a monster of selfishness.

A man committed suicide be
cause of a melancholy conviction
that he was his own grand-father,
and here is the letter he left behind
him. No wonder he killed himself:
"I married a widow with a grown
up daughter. My father visited our
house very often', fell in love with
my step daughter and married her.
So my father became my son-in-law,
and my step daughter my mother,
because she was my father's wife.
Soon afterward my wife had a son
he was my father's brother-in-law
and my uncle for he was the brother
of my ftep-mother. My father's
wife, I. e. my step-daughter, also
had a son. He was, of course my
brother, and in the meantime my
graud-child, for he was the son of
my daughter, my wife was my
grand-mother, because she was my
mother's mother. I was my wife's
husband and grand child at the
same time. And as the husband of
