Mutability of temper and inconsist
ency with ourselves is the great weak
ness of human nature. —Addison.
Those who reason only by analogies
rarely reason by logic and are gener
ally slaves to imagination. —C. Sim
Slander is a vice that strikes a
double blow, wounding both him that
commits and him against whom it is
Make people happy and there will
not be half the quarreling or a tenth
part of the wickedness there is.—Mrs.
L. M. Child.
Sunday is the core of our civiliza
tion, dedicated to thought and rever
ence. It invites to the noblest solitude
and the noblest society. —Emerson.
It is by imitation far more than by
precept that we learn everything, and
what we learn thus we acquire not
only more effectually, but more pleas
Others will judge you not by what
you can be, but by what you are; but
you must judge yourself not by what
you are, but by what you can be. —
To do an evil action is base; to do a
good action without incurring danger
is common enough, but it is the part
of a good man to do great and noble
deeds, though he risk everything.—
Great sins are not so sudden as they
seem. Familiarity with evil thought
ripens us for evil action; and a mo
ment of passion, an hour's loss of self
control, a tempting occasion, may
hurry us into irremediable evil. —Dods.
Oftentimes the hindrances that lie
in the path of duty may be compared
to the toll gates upon our turnpike
roads; they are kept shut until we are
just upon them, and then fly open, as
it were, of themselves. And that is
time enough. If they had been open a
week beforehand we could but have
gone through at the last. —John New
Indifference in religion is more fatal
than skepticism. There is no pulse in
indifference. Skepticism may have
warm blood. —Beecher.
How much trouble he avoids who
does not look to see what his neig-hbor
says or does or thinks, but only to
what he does himself, that it may be
just and pure; or, as Agathon says,
look not around at the depraved mor
als of others, but run straig-ht along
the line without deviating- from it. —

TOWEL RACK COVERS.
Although a towel rack hung with
handsome damask towels, with their
heavy fringes and perhaps initials or
monograms, is attractive when all the
towels are clean and well folded, yet,
after once using 1, and before a fresh
supply is placed on the rack, it is not
so attractive, and for this purpose the
towel rack cover was invented by some
clever housewife of Russia. And, as
this fashion originated in Russia, it is
more in keeping- to follow the designs
of that country when imitating their
In shape the cover is like a large
towel, and is thrown over the entire
rack and towels, covering both back
and front, and is intended to reach the
floor on both sides.
The designs are worked in cross
stitch on canvas, which is basted in
place, and which is drawn out thread
by thread after the work is finished.
Simple designs should be selected
and then worked in red and blue cot
ton, which, to insure fast color, should
be soaked in vinegar and water. Many
of these cottons and linens do not
fade, and if one is sure of the thread
used this soaking may be dispensed
with. A wide border worked in cross
stitch in the red and blue threads
would be very showy, especially if a
large monogram were worked above it.
Coarse canvas must be selected to
work the design upon, as the effect
must be bold. If the material itself
is made in squares, which can easily
be counted thread by thread, the can
vas may be dispensed with. Fine
birdscye linen is a good material for
this work, as threads may be drawn
and a handsome drawn-work design
made across the corner, with the cross
stitch design above and below, and a
heavy fringe finishing the lower edge
instead of a monogram. The name of
the place is worked across the towel.
A novel and handy drone trap is
described by the American Bee Jour
nal: Put two chickens into a coop,
with plenty of water, but no food ex
cept drones, pulling off the drones'
legs so they cannot crawl away. Feed
the chickens three or four days, then
turn them into the apiary and see them
walk up to the hives and pick off hun
dreds of drones. Hens are the best,
as they have no combs on their heads
to be stung by the bees.
