To-day the prophet wags his head and people heed him; tomorrow, ah, to-morrow, "None so poor to do him reverence." More than Christmas, or New Year's, or a man's birthday, election day Is the day for turning over a new leaf; also of making good. Americans are going to put up seven thousand miles of barbed wire fence. No, It will not be around the Philippines; It will Inclose one littlo cuttle ranch.

Justice is the Insurance we have on our lives and property, and obedience Is the premium we pay for it. Penn. Tne slightest sorrow for sin Is suf ficient If it produce amendment, and the greatest insufficient if it do not. Colton. We are haunted by an Ideal life, and It Is because we have within u the beginning and the possibility of it rhllllps Brooks. This Is the law of benefits between men: the one ought to forget at once what he has given, and the other never to forget what he has received. Seneca. There is no action of man In this life which is not the beginning of so long a chain of consequences, as that no human providence can tell what the end will be. Thomas of Malmes lury. The words that a father speaks to his children In the privacy of home are not heard by tne world, but, as In whispering galleries, they are clearly heard at the end, and by posterity. Richter. Let us be thankful that our sorrow lives In us as an indestructible force, only changing Its form and passing from pain into sympathy the one word which includes all our best In sight and our best love. George Eliot There cannot be a more glorious ob ject in creation than a human being leplete with benevolence, meditating in what manner he may render him self most acceptable to the Creator by doing good to His creatures. Field ing. Never did any soul do good, but K came readier to do the same again, with more enjoyment. Never was love, or gratitude, or bounty practiced but with Increasing Joy, which made the praeticer still more In love with the fair act. Shaftesbury. We often magnify troubles and dif ficulties and look at them till they seem much grcutcr than they really tie. Some of our troubles, no doubt, are real enough, but yet are not evils. Foresight Is very wise, but foresor row Is very foolish; and castles, are at any rate better than dungeons, in the air. Lord Avebury. BITS OF PHILOSOPHY. The vainest hopes are generally the most roseate. Incongruous theories are often mis taken for great principles. The has beens are bad enough. The might have beens are worse. It is not always so much what a man has, as how It pleases him. Charity never excuses a wrong; at most It only seeks to palliate it. For every rose there Is a thorn, unless you know how to avoid It. The worst form of selfishness Is to destroy the enjoyment of others. Few people, Indeed, ever come to believe that they have a sufficiency. Love, we are told, finds out every thing. And at thut It is often disap pointed. It is well enough to be hopeful, but hope, like faith, must be bucked up with works. Men who pursue impossibilities en Joy the activities of life and none of Its rewards. In a majority of cases people who rise from penury to opulence forget all the Journey except the last stages. CAREFULLY THOUGHT OUT. Job was one of the boilers that did not explode. ' After praying for goodness some people forget to be good. 8on,etimes men blow out the gas after blowing In all their mony. It Is reported that a St. Ixitila boy ate so much honey ho was attacked by 111 veu. Every man has his particular bent especially after he gets In tie rheu matic class. When a man begins to go down bill he meets a lot of people with their noses turned up. When a woman wants to my any thing mean pertaining to men In gen eral she says they are all alike. Fnme is a glorious thing, but a mall regular Income Is inucu more satisfactory to the average man. Doa't tell your troubles. It doesn't do any good, and besides it takes up the other fellow's time who wants to tell you his. WHAT ONE WOMAN OBSERVES. When fidelity becomes obligatory, life holds but few pleasures. How easy it Is to blame pooplo for not belni; patient under allliciion, Nothing reuihe.s a woman's heart so quicKly as a man's desire to con fide In her. We lnaj ull prate (if tm rnl Mrength, but when temptation comes along one Is opt to fall down flat. While her whole nature may revolt at a union, woman's tender heart oft times prevents a rupture. We cannot bid love stay or depart. The littlo god Is totally oblivious to hospitality or the lack of It. Love, like the rose, Is so sweet that ono always tries to pluck it despite the thorns, says the Philadelphia Inquirer. Depew Tells Old Joke. A visitor In Washington heard Senator Depew deliver a speech the other day. The New York states man made a Joke about pressing the hand of a fair Mormon widow, the widow numbering seventeen. The remark provoked a good deal of laughter, but It sounded familiar to the man In the gallery. 1-ater he found that Mr. Depew tad borrowed the Joke from a skit wrl'.ten by Arte mus Ward some forty i r fifty years ago.
