There was a pretty little story told on
the lost pago of a. metaphysical maga

A tired woman
tvlth a big basket

She seemed very

Then she sat
flown and lifted
the heavy basket
to her lap.
She moved It
from one knee to
tho other to ease
.Finally a working
man reached across
tho aisle and said to her:
. "Madam, if you will set the basket on
the floor tho car will carry you both."
Take the story home. '
Aro you not carrying your basket on

very hard to manage?
Then lot It down on the floor of God't
There Is power enough to carry you
Tho basket may contain disagreeable

That Is your basket, and you are given
the work of getting It to your dcstlna

which Is carrying you nlong.
And take tho Journey as easily as you
Forget nbout the weight of the basket
while you may, and know It will bo car

Do not be In a hurry to have it mani

There was a young girl who longed and
prayed for the Influence of certain people
In high position to be given to her.
It seemed cruel and unkind of Provi
dence to refuse this boon. Years after
ward, when she had attained the thing
pho dosired by her own endeavors, she
thanked the Invisible helpers that they
had denied her curly prayers.
She was stronger and better for having
made her own wav. nnd shn hnd crnwn
discriminating and learned that the in
fluence of those sho had desired should
befriend her would have been most un
fortunato for her in her youth.
Believe In the Invisible helpers.
They aro real beings.
They aro part of tho great divine, gov
ernment which has this oarthly sphere
of ours under supervision.
No matter how it may seem to you
that things are going very badly on earth
every century the raco Is in reality ad
vanclng to a higher plane.
Everything which Is flagrantly evil Is
llko tho raging of fever In the veins of
n sick man: and tho fever will turn at
tho critical hour. Things grow worse in
our politics, and In social and Industrial
matters that they may be cleansed of
their Impurities eventually: and that the
raco may see how useless It Is to try
and find happiness In any way but right
If you ure carrying on your lap the

Busy your mind with 'high Ideas of
personal living. Keep straight In your
own affairs; be practically unselfish;
give thoughts of good will to your com
petitors and rivals In tho field of en
deavor. That Is a moro constructive
work toward bettering the world than
railing at the evils you seo about you,
and It Is much harder.
Make your homo brighter and happier
for your presence In It. Many men
and women believe they are doing their
duty by their families through hard
work and constant effort to enlarge tho
fortunes of thoso dear to them; yet they
make home the most miserable place on
earth for their Ill-tempers, their ner
vousness and their lack of social quali
ties. Home building Is the first great work
of each mortal.
From the center of a happy, orderly,
cheerful nnd peaceful home, no matter
how small and humblo It Is, each of
us may work out toward a large useful
ness. But first we must make that center.
And then keep In mind the power of
tho law to bring things out for the best
and tho power of tho car to carry our
basket. Copyright, 1812, by Amcrlcan-Journal-Examlner.

Women and the Cigarette j
The long suffering men now learn that
women have gone to such leno-ths In
cigarette holders that man Is likely to
have an eye single for their charms.

anywhere from five to seven inches on
the horlrontal, and tho tobacco roll which
Is stepped Into them, thero Is a beam
with a fiery end which is likely to put
soma persons out of sight..
These cigarette holders are among the
latest Importations from London. They
are made of bone curved Into the sem-
blancn of a quill and ornamented on tho
end with a silver knob. If women smoked
much In public or walked around with
cigarettes between their lips, as the mas-
cullners do, there would be no man who
could have eyes for them. Mankind
would be rnked by projecting liatplns or
branded In passing by the fires of nico
tine. This matter of cigarette holders will
have to be taken up as seriously by the
board of aldermen as it did the ordinance
with regard to the sharp points which
project from the millinery top hainDer.
Cigarette holders for feminine uso are
becoming moro extensive and expenslvw
every day. In one of the well known
hotels of this city where women are per
mitted to smoke thero appeared yesterday
a contrivance for holding clgarettoa which
towered above the fair hand to which It
was attached. It looked In the distance
like a smouldering lorgnette. The holder
consisted of two pieces of silver wire.

The Manicure Lady
'I was reading a funny thing tho
other day about Mister Hlr Walter Hcott,"
said the Manicure Lady, "It told how ho
met Mister Tiyron when Ilyron culled
him Mister Scott, ho suld, "Cal me, Walt,
kid; call ho Walt."
I ain't Interested much In them poets,"
said the Head Hurber, "because I hoar
so much about the stuff that your brother
Is all tho time writing. I its so used to
listening to poetry that T am beginning
to dodgn uny sentence that begins with
a capital loiter nnd ends with a rhynio."
"The only reason I mentioned t, klddo,"
said the Manlcuro Lady, "was to show
that oven tho poots knows, how to bo as
democratic as Mister Wilson. You know
a lot of people think that because a man
can make up verses he Is going around
all the tlmo with his head up In tho air
muklng a nolso llko on eurthquake. Noth
ing lould be no farther from the trbth
than that, Ucorge. Wilfred Is. one of tho
mot democratic fellows that you, ever
aeon. Of courne, I don't mean to say that
he. Is ns great a poet as a man llko
Mister Hlr Walter ficott, but I will say
that tho poor kid has some means of
making up rhymes, llko I was stroll
ing In the park and It almost broke my
heart when from her I had to go, for It
left her all alone. That's the kind of a
poet that Wilfred Is, George, but Just tho
same he's my brother, und If anybody
around hero Is going to knock his poetry
1 guess It will have to be mo. He wouldn't
rest easy If he thought one or you

"I don't care one way or the other,"
said tho Head Hurber, wearily, "I hud
un unco once in Arizona that used to

h.id a ranch together. Ho did tho rorse .
writing fpr the firm nnd his, brqth.cr did
the work. H worked oil right for a, little
while, becaiwu the ono that wroto the
versss kept bulling the other brother that
somo flno day ono of tho magazines
would buy enough of his verses to help
him buy another ranch. The pocma kept
coming back llko ono of them there
boomerangs, and nt last the brother that
was doing all the work took a good
healthy kick at tho brother that was writ
ing all the poetry, and the partnership
dissolved. I doVt say that poetry writ
ing ain't a grand urt, If you call get n
little sugar, tor tho sweet thoughts that
you write, but somehow or other It seems
to mo that the undo who did nil tho
work around tho ranch was a lot more
useful thnn the guy that was wasting a
good fountain pen."
"Woll, you havo talked quite a while,"
said tho Manlcuro Lady. "Now let mo
say a few words. I think poets Is kind
of, useful sometimes. Tha old gout has
went Into the canned goods business, and
Wlltrod has wrote him eight poems about
the special brands of canned stuff that
father Is going to see. One of the verses
"All of Johnson's goods aro canned, and
their flavor Is simply grand,"
That ain't bad." said tho Head Barber
"You bet It ain't," declared tho Manl
curo Lady. "You see, George, brother has

ural to him to write about canned goods. '

Mrs. Farnum, who undoubtedly belongs
to tho fascinating class of women.
"Now, It's a woman's prerogative, al
most her duty to be fascinating. Flirting
might be called the process of fascina
tion with mallca aforethought.
"There Isn't as muoh flirting as thero

"The- fact thut wornen dross so much
