There lives in i southern family a

r necessarily disgraceful, if prelimi
naries had been duly arranged, and
the Hffair of honor had been conducted
iiccordlng to the code. Nevertheless,
a good deal of rcminen' of an un
kindly nature followed Hurr after that
fatal ending of hbt duel with the pop
ular Hamilton. The survivor was less
fortuuate than th? victim. A child of
the house wandeted Into the guest's
room and, seeing there a sliver-mounted
pistol, possessed himself of it and,
entering the drawing rcom abruptly
inquired: "Is thl.t the pistol. Col. Hurr,
with whh h you tilled C.en. Hamil
ton?" One may Imagine the confusion and
dismay of the older people Ht the In
nocent and inopiHirtune letnark.
Conscientious parents are often puz
rled what to do vith the enfant tend

American children are far too much in
the foreground, 'i heir piace is not
where it should !:e In the happy pri
vacy of the honi". for foolish parents
trot them out and make them show
their paces until they are pufted up
with vanity and importance. The
pendulum In Its swing from the sever
ity of an earlier time, bus pone too
far In an opposite direction. Children
are not happier lor having unlimited
liberty of speech. I'nless a child be
exceptionally stupid, and the enfant
terrible as a rnie Is exceptionally
clever, he does no! put himself in evi
dence when he ouuht to be silent.
The parent in whose eyes truth Is to
be cultivated at any cost, rather prides
herself on the candor of her offspring,
when he tells a visitor tnal she has a
wart on her nose or asks her why she
wears such a queer bonnet. "Do your
teeth come out at night?" inquires one
of these little terrors, to the annoy
ance of a bashful man, who does not
wish attention caUed to his looks. And
the child goes unveproved, because his
mother is afraid lliat reproof may tend
to make him deceitful.
The fact is tint virtues and good
qualities are relative and that la train
ing; children we nnst not lay the em
phasis on one point more strongly
than on another. What we need to do
U to Wath children the art of speak
ing only the truth at ull time, while
at the tine time they must learu the
lesson that all t.ui.. s not always tc
be sinikeu. Neither ha anybody,
iliild or adult, tin.' right to ask Imper
tlneut questions o make Impertinent
comments. Truth Is one Item In homi
training, a foun t.itlon-stone In char
acter. Charity and courtesy are foundation-stones;
enu.illy an indispensablt
in preparation tci the intercourse o:
the family, of business, and of society.
One of the greatest miotortunes thai
ran occur in a child's life is the lost
of a sweet and simple home-life. Whet
children lire brought tip in hotels ant
boarding houses, are more or less no
ticed by stranger (, and accustomed t
publicity, or when they are very mud
left to the 'care i-f servants, they an
likely to develop the traits that mak
childhood unlove!). We say of suet
children that they know too much
that too noon the exquisite veils ol
childish Innocence have been tore
away. When patents are forced tc
bring their children up In the glare In
stead of In the shade, In hotels Instead
of In quiet home--, extra pains shotik
be taken to keep them modest, shy
and silent In coniprny. Certainly the)
should neer be permitted to push
themselves and their affairs to tin
front, while their parents and frienih
await their convenience before going
on with their own proceedings.
Another specimen of tne enfant ter
rible seems to have inherited the
traits of the savage. This child Is fat
worse than the other, lor he Is cruel
to cats and dogs itnd takes a barbar
ous delight in killing or maiming
squirrels and birds. This child Is a
degenerate, and 's taking the initial
step on the roa-l that leads downward
to the criminal r-ourt. A less hateful
but not less unwelcome specimen If
the child with n passion for hacking
and destroying whatever comes In hl
path. He tears books, breaks furni
ture, uproots flowirs an I leaves the
mark of his little hatchet wherever he
goes. Happily, hit' energy being only
misdirected, may be turned Into Bafei
channels; for him manual training is
a Ixion, and he will probably emerge
from his present state of vandalism In
to useful and attractive boyhood later
The cruel child must be taught In
the only way thtt will appeal to him;
if need be, he must suffer In his own
person that he may learn what Buf
fering means. No pnrent Is without
blame who does not take the enfant
terrible in hand and reduce him as
soon as possible to good order.

Slender Figure Must Make Use of the
Little Fancy Coata Designed for
Princess Gowns.
No slight figure should attempt a
princess with u yoke that covers the
entire top of the shoulders. If Vhe
wears a princess skirt only, that is a
different matter, but a full frock should
have i he fabric curried well Into the
shoulder seams. This gives a chance
to fill the ugly hollows at the side of
the arms, which are far more fatal to
a good figure than a lack of bust,
though many women do not think so.
The women for whom the princess Is
still too severe should always wear a
loose Jacket of lace or embroidery.
These are the last smart things In
clothes. They can tie made at home or
bought at the shops. Some are In pre
cious Irish weaves, or even duchess,
but you can also get them In the
cheaper makes.
The trouble Is that one Is apt to get
them too patchy when made at home.
Still if you have fine bits of lace or
embroidery, here is your chance to use
them. They are nothing more or less
than shortened pelerines Just what we
always have called zouaves.
The sleeves make them different
from a bolero. These are wide and
short, usually cut circular. They are
made in chiffon velvet, by the way,
which seems a queer choice for spring
unless one sees the remarkable amount
of velvet used this season. Taffeta
gowns are heaped with It. Hut there Is
nothing new In clothes, really, for this
was a dominant fashion many years
These ilttle Jackets are worn over so
many various kinds of frocks that one
would be a good Investment for any
woman. Over all white and pastel col
ored lingerie frocks they are charming
and afford just that amount of warmth
needed on summer evenings.

A bulletin Just Issued by the de
partment of commerce states that
American exports for eight months
ending with February exceeded. In
value those for eight months ending
with Februatr, 1H05. by $190.0(l,0(rU.
Of this 'increase $133,(10(1,(100 was of
agricultural produces, while $15,000,
000 was of manufactures.
I!y themselves, says the Chicago In
ter Ocean, these figures mean Ilttle
but considered In their proper rela
tions they give a striking Indication
of our national prosperity. And to
understand what these relations are
we must remember that there are four
great groups of articles of foreign
commerce, three consisting of both im
ports and exports and a fourth of
Imports alone. The progress of for
eign trade with respect to each of
these groups is here summarized on
the basis of the figures of each for
the first seven or eight months of the
last three fiscal years the months
ending with January or February.
1. Foodstuffs, agricultural exports,
and food imports. This is still our
largest class of exports. Its value
was $700,000,000 for the period end
ing with February last, as against
$5ti7.0(in.(i00 and fii58.OOu.non for the
same periods ending with February In
19(15 and l!t04. It grows, but Irregu
larly, from year to year, according to
the harvests here and abroad. Food
imports are practically stationary,
now ranging around $80,000,000 for the
period. Hut for our failure so far to
develop a we might sugar and coffee
growing In our new possessions these
imports would decline rapidly.
I. Materials, raw or partly manufac
tured, of industry. Our mine and
forest exports are practically sta
tionary and tend to decline. We are
using these products more and more
at home, tyit our imparts of materi
als are Increasing steadily. They
were $!!! ,000,000 In the eight months
ending with February, 1!04; $231.
000,000 for the period ending with
February. 1303; had already reached
$221,000,000 by the end of last Jan
uary, and by the end of the year will
doubtless break all records.
3. Manufactures. Imports practical
ly stationary, ranging now around
$12,000,000 for the period and tefding
to decline. Exports growing steadi
ly and rapidly, and Increased from
$288,0(10,000 for the period ending with
February. 1904, to $342,000,000 for the
period ending with February, 1903, to
$387,000,000 for the period ending with
lust February.
4. Luxuries; Imports only. They
were $(1,000,000 for the period ending
with February, 1901; $9,000,000 for
the period ending with February,
HKi.i, and about $12,500,000 for the
period ending with last February.
These figures show prosperity all
along the line. Those of the second
and third groups are particularly In
teresting. The prosperity of our agri
cultural interests requires no argu
ment. These figures show that not
only Is this nation one of 'the world's
great food storehouses, but that It is
also becoming Its greatest workshop.
We are selling to other countries
less of our materials and buying more
of theirs. We are buying less of
their manufactures and selling them
more and more of ours. We are
strengthening our position as Increas
es of the value of commodities by
industry. And our increasing pur
chases of luxuries show that not only
are we doing more work, but that It
Is also profitable work, giving us
money to spend for things not neces
sary. There Is no question about our great
and Increasing prosperity. And. while
all things human are transitory, there
is no question that this exuberant
prosperity will he unchecked for some
years, if we do not become discon
tented with it and spoil it by falling
to treat the conditions and Institutions
under which It has been attained with
common sense.

that It will not be aa the result of a
fake reciprocity treaty or any other
concession or agreement by virtue of
which we lose control of the provisions
of our tariff laws or the methods of
their administration, says the San
Francisco Chronicle.
Appearances Indicate that the Ger
man government Is about ready to ac
cept In it, dealings with ua the Ameri
can principle of impartial trade. We
give to Germany In most cases and
should give It all the benefit of our
Dingley rates, which are our minimum
rates. In return we expect Germany's
minimum rates, and If we do not get
them we shall have to create some
maximum rates for the benefit of Ger
many and some other 'countries. A
good many preposterous stories have
got Into print as to certain things
which the "president" was to do for
Germany -"on the quiet" In return for
the concession of her minimum rate3
to us. One was to the effect that the
president was to Instruct our delegates
to the Alget-tras conference to aide with
Germany against France. Another,
equally absurd, was to the effect that
the president was to instruct the
treasury officials to shut their eyes to
undervaluations of German commodi
ties subject to ad valorem duties In
this country. The president has no
authority to do either of those things,
and if he had the authority it is an In
sult to suggest that he would sell the
American vote at a diplomatic confer
ence, or order treasury officials to vio
late their official oaths. There has been
no bargain made. There will be no
bargain made. Germany and the Unit
ed States will remain two friendly na
tions and each will manage Its revenue
laws to suit itself. But, as we expect
most favored nation treatment from
Germany, we should give It to her In
return, which means the abrogation of
all treaties which prevent It.
Point in Protective Tariff That Is
Perfectly Plain to the Work
ingman. Suppose that to please Gov. Guild
and ex-Gov. Douglas and our manu
facturers of boots and shoes we
should repeal the duty on hides, says
the American Economist. We should
also, of course, at the same time re
peal the duty on boots and shoes.
That having been done, our market
would be open to the product of for
eign countries, und In a very short
time thore would be an Inundation of
footwear into this country against
which our own manufacturers would
have to compete. In order to meet
this importation and be able to sell
boots and shoes In our own market In
competition with those from abroad
It would be necessary to make them
as cheaply. The cost of material be
ing the same in both countries, there
would remain nothing to bring about
equality in the cost of production ex
cept wages. The consequence would
be, the wages of all the people in this
country engaged in making boots and
shoes would have to go down to the
level of wages abroad, which is about
half the amount now paid here. This
result would be most unfortunate In
Itself, but there would be other ef
fects to follow. There are at pres
ent considerably over 200,000 people
engaged in making boots and shojs,
and the purchasing power of tnsjse
people would at once be cut In half.
In many towns and villages boot and
shoe making Is the only occupation of
a large portion of the people. To cut
in half the wages of the people would
mean the large diminution of their
trade with all classes of the commu
nity. This wouhPbe reflected In buy
ing the merchandise of others, bo that
the result would be far spreading. It
would be well to consider seriously
before taking the duty off from hides
and boots und shoes to estimate thor

the situation. It gives reciprocity u
serious setback and leaves the revl

Progress Which the Interchurch
Conference la Making in
Its Work.
The Inter-Church Conference on Mar
rlage and Divorce at its recent meetlni
in New York city ordered the prepara
tion and publication of a third appeal to
the people of the United States on the
subject with which the conference hat
to deal. There is no new argument .o
present The conference is committed
to enforce by repetition, and to empha
size by reiteration, the great truth of tha
sacredness of marriage aa not a contract
lightly formed and easily broken, but
an estate of life, first among the Institu
tions of God for man, and foremor.t
among the sancltles of human life. It
needs guarding against the profanation
of thoughtlessness, of mere passion, of
worldly advantage or social advance
ment, of mercenary or any other low
motives. It needs the protection of wise
laws, of sound public opinion, and of
religious sanction. The scandal of fre
quent and facile divorce, with the re
marriage that follows, often as the ac
complishment and with the accomplice
of the separation, Is really a by-word
and reproach to our country, remarks
the Christian Work; and the radical
cure can only be reached by going to
the root and cause, namely, the non-
realization of the religious element In
matrimony. First of all, then, the con
ference urges the recognition of the true
intent and meaning of the marriage
bond, "the union of one man with one
woman for life." This the clergy ought
to teach, "In season and out of season;"
and this Christian men and women
ought to impress deeply upon their own
consciences, and to teach their children
and their children's children, until the
truth shall pervade society and prevail
over the loose and low sentiments so
common to-day. To this end a resolu
tion was adopted by the conference at
its last meeting declaring that It was
the sense of the conference that the
Scriptural and most effectual way tc
meet and overcome the divorce evil is
by education, with a view to elevating
the moral sentiments of the people."
Meanwhile the conference Is encour
aged by its own growth In member
ship; duly elected representatives from
the Presbyterian church in the United
States (South), and the Church of
the New Jerusalem, having been pres
ent at its last meeting. Still more,
both by its influence and by the In
creasing public conviction of the evil
of divorce, the atmosphere seems to
be clearing. This Is noticeable in the
public press. In. the outspokenness of
many clergymen, in the utterances of
influential laymen, and in the serious
consideration which the question Is
now receiving from the members of
the bar.
Difficulties of MiFsionary in Syria.
Dr. George T. Post, a missionary of
long experience In Syria, writes:
"Missions In Turkey are embar
rassed by the drain of emigration
more than by all other drawbacks and
hindrances. This is a factor against
which energetic action is no anti
dote. Persecutions we can bear; op
position we can overcome; stubborn
unbelief we can enlighten; stolid in
difference we can interest; but what
can we do with nothing? Multiplica
tion of a minus quantity only In
creases the deficit. We have hoped for
the reflex influence of the emigrants
on their return laden with new ideas
and inspiration, but with few excep
tions we have had none of these off
sets to the loss. Our only consolation
is that He who sent us here Is in
dome mysterious way at the bottom
of this movement. His mill grinds
slowly but it never closes and is
never out of order. At least He can
use the situation to exercise our faith
in the infinite and far-reaching wis
dom of God, who knows the end from
tue beginning."
Revival Meetings by Telephone.'
A unique feature of the Torrey-Al-exander
meetings at Philadelphia has
been the use of the telephone to extend
the circle of influence of the meet
ings. A telephone company Installed
a megaphone just above the speakers'
stand at the armory, through which
the singing of Mr. Alexander and the
sermons of Dr. Torrey were transmit
ted over the wires throughout the
city. It was not necessary for th
people to leave their homes In order
to listen to the revival services; they
could do so by merely taking the tele
phone receiver from the hook and ask
ing Central to connect them with the
armory. For five cents they could lis
ten for 15 minutes to the singing and
preaching. The use of the Invention
was probably unique in the history of
revival meetings in America.
