You may talk of reformations, of tho Economic Plan,
That shall stem tho Social Kvll In Its Course;
But the Ancient Sin of nations, must be got at In the Man,
"If you' want to cleanse a river, seek the source.
Ever since his first beginning, Man has had his way, In lust.
Ho has nover learned tho law of Self-Control;
And the World condones his sinning, and the Doctors say ho must,
And the Churches shut their eyes, and take his toll.
And the lauded "Lovely Mothers," send thoir son out Into life
With no knowledge-welded armour for the fight;
"He will make his way like others, through the Oat-flold, to the
Ho will somehow bo led onward, to the light."
Yes, his leaders, they shall find him. On the highways at each turn,
(Since you did not chooso to counsel or to warn),
They shall tempt him, then shall bind him; they shall blight, and
they shall burn,
Down to offspring and descendants yet unborn.
11 can never end through preaching; It can novur end through law8;
This social sore, no punishment can heal.
It must bo tho mother's teaching of the purposo and the cause,
And God's glory, lying under sex appeal.
She must feel no fear to name it to the children it has brought;
She must speak of it as sacred and sublime;
She must beautify, not abuse It, by her speech and by her thoughts,
Till they listen, and respect it, for all time.
From the heart they rested under ere they saw the light of day,
Must tho daughters and tho sons be taught this truth;
Till they think of It with wonder, as a holy thing alway;
While love's wisdom guides them Bafely through their youth.
Oh, tho world has mado its devil, and the Mothers let It grow;
And the Man has dragged their thoughts down to tho earth.
There will be no Social Evil, when each waking mind shall know
All tho grandeur and the beauty hid in birth.
When each Mother sets the fashion to win confidence and trust,
And to teach the mighty lesson, Self-Control,
Wo can lift the great Sox passion from the darkness and the dust
And enshrine it on the altar of tho soul.

. ARE YOU FIT TO MARRY?
Most People Arc Not So Eminent
Do not marry if you are nervous aud
iirituble. Do not marry if you ars
weak and despondent. Do not marry If
you snf?r from indigestion, constipa
tion, sleeplrssne or nny liver trouble.
More than half of the divorces and two
thirds of tbe failures in life can be
traced to indigeatlon and constipation,
for they are the parents of nervousness,
sleeplessness and general debility.
I believe my Taw Paw Pills are do
ing more to prevent domestic troubles
and financial failures, as well as bodtly
suffering, than any other medicine.
They might be called the Peacemakers.

they want, but they coax the liver inlo

My Paw Paw Pills are wholly wnhke

draped with costly laco of cobweb fine
ness. There were diamonds In my tum
bled golden curls, and my cheeks were
scarlet, as were my scornful Hps. I had
eyes of midnight that wer'e- like flashing
stars when I was angry, and melted to
toft moons when I was pleased.
No one would ever have suspected any
of thepe" things who looked at me. 1 was I
to the ordinary eye Just a red-headed, I
hatchet-faced' little girl in short petticoats'
and my Spanish barb was Just a hitching '
rack In the hitching stalls back of the
old church but, pshaw, such people as i
that didn't see.
They didn't really see thnt she who rode
beside mo on tho next hitching rack wns
not the minister's daughter, but a lady
of high degree the Lady Pearl of Pearl
Island, where her estates lay. Her steed
was of Arab lineage a marc, brown as
a chestnut burr and she who rode her
was clad In blue saali looped and beaded
all over with priceless pearls.
The third rack In tho hitching stalls
back of the old church was an Arab
charger, white as the driven snow, with
eyes of flashing fire, and a mane like
, crinkled silver.
The rider of this glorious i-tceil was
yelept Isabel, proud and stately and
noble to an umazlng degree, and she
wore a . dress of shining white satin
looped and hung with 'deep hearted rubles,
and her long hair was pinned to the bot
torn of the train, each strand with a
cross of burning rubles.
All this we knew, we three who ran to
the old church every day when school
was out; to ail'others we were Just three
queer little girls, with nothing In par
ticular In the way of looks and no adorn
ment that to us was so real.
Madge, Pearl and Vsabel. we rode far.
far away in our bravo satin sparkling
with gems; far away Into that land of
dreamy glory that lies always Just out
side the door lh tho lives of happy chil
dren. I saw Ysabel, the haughty, the other
day; she was Just coming from school,
where she had been to see why her
youngest wasn't doing so well as lie might
Pearl, the princess, has just returned
from Kurope. She teaches Greek in a
big eastern college. I wonder If the
young ladlej ever realize that she is the
j'rincess Pearl. Sharp anxieties have
leached her heart In the passing year
anxieties she never dreamed of when
she donned her dress of satin leafed with
pearls and rode her Arab mare.
Deep sorrow has come to Vsabel I
saw that written m lior eyes the other
day, thougji she smiled and held her head
bravely. And Madge, she of the golden
curls wreathed In diamonds; she of tbe
eyes of midnight, with the crimson cheek
Hnd lily brow. Poor Madge. I'm afraid
those eye have been wet with some
scalding tears since she rode Spitfire.
But I'm glad we rode the Arab steed and
the Spanish barb; I'm glad we wore tho
gem-crusted robes of satin; I'm glad
our glorious eyes flashed and our proud
