We be lieve that Judge Arttnan's decision is without a Haw. but to obtain such de cisions we must hav men like Judge Arlman on the bench. Tho moral convictions of tho man wore wrought Into his decision as well as his legal acumen. The great adfantage which has been twined by Judge Artman's decision is that discussion concerning the liquor I raffle has been lifted Into tho region of purely moral consideration, says the Homo Herald. The only question now Is, Is It right or wrong? This is the only consideration which ought to be admitted Into the settlement of any moral question. It Is believed that tho Issue Is now in such shape that It can be carried to tho supreme court of the I'nlted Stales. If It reaches that tri bunal, in an Important sense, tho judges themselves will be on trial, for their decision will depend not on tho letter of any statute so much as on the moral perceptions of tho court and Its anienabiniy to arguments drawn from the character and known will of Cod. A GREAT MISSION. Success of Lectures of Dr. Charles Cuthbert Hall in India. The lectures of President Charles futhbert Hall in India have been warmly praised in the native press "The Patriot," the oldest Hindu organ in India, says in its discussion of tho lecture course: "The divinity of Christ has nowhere been questioned. The main reason why Mr. Hall has been nble to draw the Hindu heart is thnt lie has not lnleiVird'd his speeches with ignorant abuse of other religions. Dr. Hall's lectures, instead of lower ing Chrls-tianlty in tho eyes of tho Orientals, will rather tend to Increase their regard for it." A principal bone lit that comes from such a visit as that of Dr. Hall to India, is in a thor ough Interpretation of the likenesses of Christianity to the heathen faiths, as well as the dissimilarities and the contrasts. The missionary who touch es these occult civilizations Is usually determined beforehand that the faith of the church Is a compendium of all truth, and there is little effort on bis part to appreciate the ideals of tho Hrahman nnd the Confucian philoso phies. The leaders of thought In In dia and China, and to a lesser extent In Japan, have stood apart from Christianity because It was so unhoed ful nnd unnpproelatlve of their ances tral beliefs. A man of Christian cul ture who can interpret to the best In telligence of the Kast the truth of Christ, with n full sense of the merits in the non-Christian theologies, has a great mission, and his work may be of priceless consequence. Colored Y. M. C. A. The report of tho secretary of the Atlanta Colored Y. M. C. A. Is Inter esting and encouraging. In 1901 the association had 40 members. During the following six years tho member ship has aggregated 2.007, with a present "membership of 275; 450 dif ferent persons have attended tho night school. The aggregate attendance up on men's llihle classes is H.000, and upon (Jospel meetings 25,037; 75 po sitions secured; upwards of 150 con versions and receipts for all purposes $,150.26. "Not Yet Believers." "Not yet believers" is the courteous term always used for the heathen by some of the missionaries in Japan. As Dr. Partridge, the bishop of Kyoto, says: "It Is much superior, even to tho term 'unbelievers' or 'non-believers,' because It does not accuse them of any opposition to the faith, but rather implies an Interest "In It which a further study will surely deepen. St. Paul's 'Gentlemen of Athens' states a principle always tc bo renteniDered." 9 1 .' THE VICTIM OP MIS OWN LAW. Predicament of George P. McCabe Should Pleat Beef Packer. George P. McCabe, solicitor of the department of agriculture, had an ex perience a few week ago which prob ably will gratify tho bepf packer. MeCaho wns tho author of that pro vision of tho meat Inspection law which forbids any railroad to trans port meats unless labeled "IT. 8. In-Moi-ted and Passed." Tho agriculture solicitor is a hospitable man. He like nothing hotter than to gather a few congenial souls around his board, es pecially on Sunday afternoon. Ha Imis been passing the summer at Gar rett Park. Md., a suburb of Washing ton, nnd buys all his supplies In the capital city. During a hot spell some tlmo ago he asked a number of men to dine with hi in on tho Sabbath and told hi wlf that ns the lee box was low It would bo wise to replenish the meat supply. Mrs. McCabe dutifully came to Washington and purchased about i0 pounds of roast beef, bacon, lamb, off. Tho butcher sent the basket to the railroad station and the baggage man promptly declined to receive It on tho ground that it was not marked I". S. Inspected and Passed." Mrs. McCabe telephoned to her hus band; he tried to turn the wheels t government, but failed it was Sat urday and work ceased at one o'clock and In order to get the stuff out to his homo McCabe had to take It I inio mo passenger car. I pon ar- nvai ai imrroit rarK there was no ve- ; hide waiting. The solicitor was com polled to load the basket on his shoul der and march along n dusty roar and then through what Is called "the dreary woods'' to reach his house Ho toiled for half an hour before ho arrived at homo, and when ho did his friends say he was in an unspeak utile frame of mind. One thing Is certain, "I". S. Inspected and Passed' Is not half as popular in the acrl cultural department as It was before that blue Saturday. SKATE ON CAPITAL STREETS bierK use Roller Skate to Go to Their Occupations. Holler skating, which In other cities Is practically an amusement, Is used in a practical way by government em ployes In Washington. About 25 clerks employed in the post office depart ment who live In the vicinity of Mount Pleasant skate to the office. The clerks formed a party for their first appearance, for tho reason that up to thin time roller skating has been con sidered the prerogative of children and not generally indulged In by grown people outside of rinks. M. O. Chance, chief clerk, led the party, which made its way down Six teenth street as the most deslrablo thoroughfare. H Is expecled that the organization of this concerted movement in the di rection of practical roller skating will place the sport upon u basis similar to that once enjoyed by the bicycle. The miles of smooth asphalt streets in Washington unobstructed by much heavy trallle make it an Ideal city for skating. Thousands of young men and women go to work in the departments daily and need not only tho exercise which roller skat ing to the office will give, but the price of car tickets as well. Work for Senator's Secretary, Kvery new congress brings Washington the meanest man Christendom. A western senator to In ar- ranged last Bummer for the construe' tion of a barn. "I want the work done as econom ically as possible," he told the car penter. "It will save money, won't it. to drive one nail Instead of two Into each board?" "Yes," was the reply. "But the barn won't be as strong." "That's all right" responded the thrifty senator, "you go ahead with the work, using one nail In each board." When the carpenter finished the senator used a Western Union frank to call his secretary to his home "to do Borne work which had accumu lated." Upon the Iatter's arrival he dis posed of a number of letters and then said: "Here are four pounds of nails. I want you to drive an extra nail in every plank in that barn." As the government pays tho salaries of senators' secretaries It Is readily apparent that the western economist saved something In having him In stead of the carpenter drive the requisite number of nails into the barn. Economical Senator Clark, Itlch as is ex-Senator William A. Clark of Montana, ho indulged In vari ous economies while in Washington which attracted considerable atten tion. Late one night when It was rain ing cats and dogs Clark entered a car, his umbrella dripping and the bottoms of his trousers soaked. Sev eral passengers knew Clark and be gan speculating about what they would do if they had his money. "A carriage for mine on a night like this," observed one. "A steam yacht to navigate the streets," remarked another. "1 would do exactly what Dark hna done," said a third. "A cab would cost 50 cents. My trousers could bo pressed in the morning for a quarter, A street car ticket costs 4 1-3 cents, There Is a clear profit of 20 2-3 cents, and that to a millionaire means some thing. Just multiply that sum by 365 and you would appreciate the yearly saving. Little economies make little Millionaires." UN THE VOGUE OF Much of our Interest Is now cen tered In frills, and here I find myself again conceitedly exulting In my sue cessrul knack of prophecy. You may be deceived In the cost of a coat and skirt, but the frills are of a more tell tale disposition, and the eyes of tho least expert can detect at once which are made of fine muslin or batiste. and which of mercerized lawn or any of the cheaper sort of fabrics which can be called upon to do such serv ice. A very superior specimen has a hand-embroidered center plait, flanked on either side with a lace frill; and a very attractive model has an Insertion of lace down the center of tho front, a plaited lawn frill on either side belne edged with lace, while the collar band is of transparent lace, and the base of this Is finished with a narrow black tie. Doubtless we shall suffer consider- ably from the machinations of the in experienced or willfully wicked wash erwoman, and those who are going iu uiauige inemseives in frills of fine quality had best set about it at once to find a successful clear starcher. And having discovered her, teach her how not to starch. It seems quite right and nroner that these dalnty-laced decorations of tuckers and ruffllngs should accom pany the heaver and panne hats, trimmed with feathers and well allied to velvet gowns, they may pass for what we should have called in the early days of the century "brave ar ray." I confess myself much In love with the notion of the plain dress which looks simple, with an elaborate shirt and Trillings and ruffles, and crowded with a very expensive hat with beau tiful feathers upon It. And. talkine of beautiful feathers, I would refer once more to those new elaborations of the ostrich feather. The manufacturers have contrived now to extend the oneth of their fronds, so that they have a shaggy appearance, and they are as delight fully attractive as novel. Indeed, by the side of them the ordinary ostrich feather, even if It be of very eood quality, seems quite uninteresting. Sometimes those feathers are shaded, two dark colors being most successfully used, such as peacock blue nnd brown, and two tones of ono color will also do good service, ' There is a great rage for the satin hat, and this shares favor with the hat of silks. An excellent model which is enjoying much favor having tho brim of white silk, bound with brown velvet, and the crown very full and largo and made entirely of brown vel. vet; Innocent of any trimming whatso ever, and somewhat In the old beef eater shape, is this crown. The striped tweeds and the strlned velvets are no longer threatening they have arrived. A coat and skirt of dark blue and black velveteen I met recently looked extremely well under the Influence of a dark blue vol. vet hat with masses of blnck wings at one B,ae and ovt?r tn,B fe'l a veil 01 aurK 0,ue 8ort cnenille net. 1 nave no means exhausted my affection for veils, and wish they were niore Kneral.

A CHARMING DRESS One would have to search far to find a dress more tasty or elegant than the one pictured here. The ma terial of which it Is made is of the palest sky blue satin, cut in a sort of combination of the pinafore frock of our summer's affections and the new princess dress which is draped across the figure and opens all down the skirt slightly at one side. The un-dor-vest Is of fine white tullo illusion, encrusted with largo flower motifs. which are embellished with little em pire wreaths In blue ribbon work. Tc Increase the princess effect the entire dreBB is bordered with a fine pale blue passementerie, which outllnee the bretelles of the bodice, descends along the opening on one side of the skirt and borders the hem. Our art ist gives a little sketch of the pretty way the fullness of the bodice is held by the stitched bands rising back and front, centered by an oval em broidered motif in tho shape of a buckle. The sleeves are of net, like the vest, and are finished with a twist of blue satin ribbon and flounces of valonclennes. Costly Dog Collars. Five hundred and fifty pounds wu paid by a nobleman at the beglnnlna of the eighteenth century for a dog collar of gold. A collar of silver, with four small diamonds, costing 200 guineas, was sold to a society lady for her pet dog. It is fashionable in France to put gold bracelets studded with Jewels on the forelegs of poodles. The ptoln gold collars with Jeweled settings cost no less than 20. while the Jeweled collars run to JC100. Tho bracelets run from 12 to 70 eauh, RUTH'S WISE CHOICE Saaiay SckMl Uims lor Do. 8.

"Ood wrestled with Jacob with desire to be con' quered; so Naomi, no doubt, opposed Ruth, hoping and wishing that she herself might be foiled." T. Fuller.

Orpah decides to go back to her people. There was little to attract her to a new and strange home, with pov erty in prospect, with little hope that she would be welcome to the exclusive Jews, to whom, as well as to her mother, -she might become a burden nothing to attract her except love and religion.

V. 16. "And Ruth said." "Ruth's passionate burst of tenderness is inv mortal. It has put into fitting words Tor all generations tho deepest thoughts of loving hearts, and comes to us over all tho centuries between as warm and living as when it welled up from that pure, heroic soul. The two strongest emotions of our nature are blended in it, and each gives a por tion or its fervor love and religion.' Maciaren. Orpah and Ruth, starting together for the promised land, and one return' ing to idolatry, while the other goes on to Immortal blessedness, are' par alleled by the characters in the early part of Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress," where Christian and his neighbors start together for the Celestial City. Christian goes on. while Obstinate and Pliable soon return to the City of Destruction. "It might have been' sums up the tragedy of many a life. Choices between good and evil, even In small things, are the most inv portant acts of our lives. They are the creative acts of the soul. Often these fateful crises come In our lives in connection with decisions of the Importance of which we do not dream. We know what is right; we do not know the far-reaching effects. The Outcome of Ruth's Choice. So far we have been reading the introduc tion to Ruth's romantic love story, a companion picture in common life to the picture In Solomon's song portray ing the lovo of a great king. It is well to have these two pictures In the Uible gallery, because home and holy love are essential conditions of the transforming this world Into the kingdom of God. Home and love open the gates to Paradise. The star of Bethlehem for the race stands over the home with Jesus In it. The greatest reward both of Boas and of Ruth arises from the fact that they were the ancestors of King David, tho greatest of Israel's kings, and of David's greater son, Jesus, the prince of peace. "Here we have the eternal appre ciation of every day virtue and service in the midst of little, ordinary things, and tho divine recognition of these as powers in making the world what God wants it to be. It is meant to teach mat in the tlmidest breast of timid woman there mav reside an nrv which affects human life and the des tinies of ages more even than clatter ing arms and clashing armies And Ruth, bringing Into Judah only a woman's heart filled with a wonderful love, was able to do more for the land of her exile than it soldier!
