Line an arrow shot from a how
By an archer blind, be Itcrnel or kind ,
Jnw where it will change to no.
It nsay pierce the breast of your dear
T?fped with its poinon or balm;
To a stranger's heart, in life's great
It may carry its pain or it calm.
Yon ran never tell, when you do an act,
Jft what the rexiilt will be;
But with every ded you are Bowing a
T hoti ah it harvest yon may not see.
Eae-h kindly act U an acnni dropped
In Sod'rt productive soil;
Thonjrh you may not know, yet the trse
And shelter the brows that toil.
Vow ran never tell what your thoughts
In bringing you hate or love;
Tor thoughts are thing?, and their airy
Are swifter than carrier-dovi a.
They follow the law of tlje universe,
Kairh thing must create its kind ;
And Ihev speed o'er the track to bring
Whatever went out from your mind.

The Emotion art Sculptor.
Every emotion tends to $ulpture
the body Into beuty or into ugliness.
Worrying. freUing, unbridled pis
ik, petulancp, discontent, everv
dishonest act, every falsehood, every
Jelling of envy, jealousy, fear, each
baa its effect on the system, and
itets deleteriously like a poison or a
Reformer of the body. Professor
Jamts of Harvard, an expert In the
mental sciences, says: "Every
real) stroke of virture or vice leaves
its erer so little scar. Nothing we
tver do is, in strict literalnesa, wl,,ed
i." We look with pity and dis
trict upon the man who vitiates his
vitality, pollutes and ruins his body
hy )collol, while we nursl vs may
be ehHtiging our own bodies into
hideous forms by what seem to he
"innocent sins." A fit of anger may
work a greHter damage to the body
and character than a drunken hout.
Hatred may leave worse sears upon
a elejin life than the bottle. Jeal
iyr envy, anger. uncon'nlled
grif may do more to wieck the
physical life than years of smoking.
Anxiety, fretting, aiH scolding, may
instill a more subtle poi-mn into the
system than the cigarette. Success.

Among the tailor suits which are
always of first interest In the fall
there is the short jacket with plast
ron front. This style is by no means
unfamiliar, it having been quite
modish from time to time f r some
years. Being military in effect it Is
more apt this year than ever to at
There is a pretty little military
blue suit of plain faced, light-weight
cloth, lined with ut that bright
shade of red that one finds in army
cloaks. The plastron Is fastened on
with small brass army buttons, and
heavy black braid adds a nice finish
to- the entire frock.
Nearly all jacke's, unless they
forum parts of suits, have high, flar

front they may be so built that they
flt close to the neck.

ing back in front, and sleeves verv
Mght. with a slight fulness at the
shoulder. Almost all are tight fit
ting to the waist line. They are
generally elaborately embroidered
or braided, and fringes also appear
as trimming on the sleeves of wraps,
pereline", and capes.
Wraps and capes, it is already
decided, will be much longer than
last vear; the tendency seems to be
toward a half tight-fitting garment.
The latest thing In capes is a very
stylish Parisian afliir extremely
long at the back and so cut that it
reaches the elbow on the sides,
while the fronts form two long tabs
that decrease gradually to a point
at the end The collar stands very
high around th neck, and is covered,
as is the rest of the garment, with a
heavy applique design. A chiffon
plisse stands up around the collar
and forms a jabot down the front.
I have made reference before to
the long ulsters. Ruch wraps will be
in every smart woman's wardrobe
and all ready as protection from the
damp early snows with which all
people in this climate are familiar.
It is a notion of th season to fill
in the fronts of cloth jackets that
open with the prettiest and softest
of frilled vests. Tiny rowsof ruffled
bite lace are put on flue mulls,
and form the fronts of some of the
severest of tailor gowns.
Vtirlou Fads of Autumn Di-raoing.
Plush wraps, which are to be quite
popular, range In length from the
short cape to thirty or thirty-two
Inches, and some are elaborately
trimmed with embroidery and fur.
(Japes in an txcellent qualitv of
plush are shown this fall at prices
much lower than those of former
seasons. Among the novelties are
some with pleats in the back; and
one, which will be an especial fa
vorite, Tails in graceful folds from
the shoulders, giving somewhat the;
appearance of a stylish loose sleeved
The back is tight fitting, held in
by a belt.
The ruffle that is such a charac
teristic feature of the new cloth
capes is seen also In cloaks of fur; in
these it isof light fur on adark cape.
Though the adoption of trimming
on coats and capes, other than braid,
has been very gradual, the coming
snason Insures styles in all kinds of
wraps that call for a most elaborate
display. This fashion can be traced
to the use of so many ruches, fl tun
ces and draperies on tlie summer
At present fringe p mni s to he a
most popular f ill ao i .vintr trim

leading wraps. A most effective
fiinge is the long, twisted silk
fringe, having an elaborately knot
ted beading which affords a close
likeness to rich passementerie. This
generally comes In black, from six
to ten inches deep, and is used to
finish the edges of capes and trim
stole ends. Tape or braid frh:ge
will also be much in vogue. It is
much more simple in style, having
for the heading a crimped tape
about one quarter of an inch wide,
while in depth it measures three
Fringe is employed to produce
bertha and ruffled effects, and for
simulating the graceful, flowing
sleeves. Golf capes made from mate
rial by the yard, will be fringed
more lioerally t.ian ever before,
even surpassing the Bhawl cape;
while wraps of various kinds made
from similar materials are to be
fringed as much as possible. Modes
To Grow Violet Sucormif ully.
One all Important item in the cul
ture of violets is ventilation. They
must have fresh air and plenty of it
at all times. Good ventilation is
easily secured by placing blocks un
der the ends of the sash. They will
require careful watching during the
bright sunny days, to prevent the
temperature from rising too high
The nearer It can be kept at from 65
to 60 degrees during the bloominir
season the better. Cooler tempera
ture before time for blooming will
be necessary. During severe winter
weather it will be necessary to cover
the sash with manure, strawy litter
or old carpet, to keep o t the cold
These coverings snouUl u.t remain
on during the daytime unless it
seems necessary. As to watering,
the grower will have to use ntm
judgment. Violets must never beal
lowed to dry out, and require con
siderable water. Allow plenty of
water, but avoid daily soaking
whether needed or not. It is rather
a diillcult matter to grow violets in
ue House, the hot, dry heat of the
ordinary living room being disas
trous to tlie health of the plant.

To Set Color.
The most important point in the
salt and water process of setting the
color in your shirt waist is to have
the brine strong enough and the wa
ter hos enough. Use one quart of
salt in an ordinary bucket of water
and have the water scalding hot.
Use a wooden or paper bucket, as
the brine will rust tin and spot your
article. Put your goods in cover and
let them stand about three or four
hours until the water Is perfectly
cold. Put only one article in each
bucktlul. After drying, the color
will remain In fast as long as th-t
piece holds together. Of course this
must be done whet the goods are
new, before they have been l iuuder
ed at all.
At this Beaso'i of the year mipkin,

until the stain disappears. If this
be done soon after the article tsstaiu

It is a wonde- that we live at all.
We violate every law of our being,
yet we expect to live to a ripe old
age. What would you thiuk of a
man who, having an elegant watch
delicately aujusted to heat and cold,
should leave it on the sidewalk with
cases open on a dusty or a aiuy day.
and yet expect it to keep good time?
What would you think of a house
holder who should leave the doors
and windows of his mansion open to
thieves and trumps, to winds and
dust and rain? What are our bodies
but timepieces made by an Infinite
Hand, wound up to run a century,
and so delicately adjusted to heat
and cold that the temperature will
not vary half a degree between the
heat of summer and he cold of win
ter, whether we live in the regions
of eternal frost or under the burning
sun of the tropics? A particle of dust
or the slightest friction will throw
this wonderful timepiece out of or
der, yet we often leave it exposed to
all the corroding elements. We do
notalways keep open the twenty
five miles of ventilating pores in the
skin by frequent bathing. We sel

We expose it to dust and cinders,

But his love is the sweetest rose over
The love that hath crowned me,
A necklace around me,
That closer to God and to heaven hath

His love is the rainbow that shines
through my tears ;
My litcht in Uod's darkness, when
with my dim eyes
I see hot the stars 'rt 'her storm of his
When I bow 'neath the 1 ad
And no rose deck the sod,
His love lights the path way that leads

"His mother's his sweetheart." Shine
bright for his feet,
O lamps on life's highway! and roses,
To the lips of my darlinir! and God
grant his sun
And his stars to my dutiful, beautiful
For his iove it hath crowned me,
A necklace around me,
And closer to God and to heaven hath
