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."

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

Mrs. McCabe telephoned to her hus

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.

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

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,

Comment and Suggestive Thought.
The Two Decisions. The two wld

"Fawn," and Ruth, "the Rose of
Moab." went part of the way to tee

came to part, when they had kissed
each other and wept together, they
ootn declared they would not return,
but would go with her to Israel, "Like
a wise woman, she declined to take
advantage of the Impulse of passion'
ate regret, which seemed adverse to
their temporal welfare, and which
their fontae lurlirmanf mtfrlit t..f aati

arguments, to return." "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.
She would have Ruth fully understand

his people, when urging them with all
bis soul to be true to their Ood, even
after their declaration "God forbid
that we should forsake the Lord"
tells them, "Ye cannot serve the
Lord" (Josh. 24: 21).
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

V. 16. "And Ruth said." "Ruth's

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

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
