"It Is net a hard, hustling: business to ama?s

" ' DAINTY BUREAU CABINET.
Ingenious Device Which Any Girl Can
Hake.
Girls who like to surround themselves with
dainty little contrivances are much interested In
making for themselves and their mothers the tiny
cabinets for cloves, veils and handkerchiefs which
ere all the. go in "Paris. The. first thlr.B necessary
Is to eet or make a small sblomjl wooden box about
ten inches Jong. This stands on end and forms the
cabinet, into which three drawer.? have- to b« fitted.
For thes« modern boxes have to te procured of the
right size to fit in one over the other, as If In a
miniature ."bureau." or If they do not fit at the
side exactly . one ride of the big box can be taken"
off and the bottom cut down to the required size,
rfter which the side can be nailed o:» securely
arala. If a little space shows .it the top of th»
box It does not matter, as a bit of the bonder,
cover .which rime with the box can he tacked on
in front to th* required depth.
Well. by this tt:ne the big box and the three little
tox<-s have been made, over into a bureau standing.
>ay. ten Inches high, and tit •-•! with three little
boxes or drawn*, standing one on top of the other.
The next step js the decoration of the cabinet
First eandpap'T it. then enamel it with one of the
ivory paints that ca:i '.>>■ bought at any oil and
paint or department store, not n©El«.H:t!nK the >>•■(
and sides of the little drawers. Una the latter
with Japanese griM paper and Cover the fronts
with handsome Japanea** brocade, fast-:. ln* the
edges down neatly with glu" or mucilage. For
handles screw In wee picture rings.
To make the two upper drawer* stand firm and
true, smnil silvers of wood. ••r.arr.*ll«-<l. must be
glued into placo in the inside of the big box for
them to run on.- And to complete, this pretty ac
cesaory. each drawer should be labelled with the
article it Is to hold -"Gloves" on one. "Veils" on
the. next. say. a-nd "Handkerchiefs" on the third.
Or these may be worked In pretty stitches en plain
silk or linen before the material is applied to the
front of th* drawer at aIL

Recklessness over one'H clothes Is one of the notes
)f modern life. The clouds may lower and "Old
Probabilities" may have prophesied rain, but my
ody dons her muslin or chiffon Kcwn and a;n(M to

school mistress', who ha« turned it Into an "estab

gowns. They go on the, principle that the human
mind cannot tuk« the Impression of two beautiful
objects at once. . One must- suffer. Therefore, they
wear a plain hat with a colored gown, and a colored
bat with a soberly tinted frock.

OFF TOR CUBA AND PORTO RICO.
Nine Women Missionaries Sent by Presby
terian Board.
Nlre. women missionaries are Balling for Porto
Rico and Cuba to-day, under the auspices of the
Woman's Board of Home Missions of the. Presby
terian Church. They go to teach in the mission
schools, which, In nearly every case, serve as an
entering wedge for the- organization of, n church,
and v.ill act as guides, philosophers and friends to
communities which the ordinary male missionary
could never reach.
A farewell meeting for these missionaries was
held yesterday morning st the Presbyterian Build
ing, No. ID'S Flfth-ave.. v/hcre the officers of the
Board of Home Mission* nnd the Woman's Board
bade them Godspeed and gave them a great deal
of goo-i advice. . . •
If. C. Olln. treasurer of the Bssrd of Home Mis
f.li.:is. explained the u«9 <->t the various report
blanks and vouchers which the teachers will have
to vise ln order to keep the two boards Informed
• bout th«Mr work. Th<» voucher blank hnppene!
to he blue, but Mr. Olln explained thr.t this did
not mrnn thnt they were to be blue when they
filled it nut. or blur when they got their salaries.
He nlso told them that tli? Woman's Board was
renfly to do their shopping for them, nnd pre
ferred to do It, because it was oft<-u able to get
discounts.
Mrs. Ella A. Bool*, secretary of the Woman's
Board, urpod the. missionaries to keep not only tho
board but their home churches nnd any particular
society that might hn supporting them constantly
informed about their work and the Interesting
thinßs that happened to them.
"The fact that a ml?lonary ha« gone out from
among them is often enough." Mrs. Bo.>lo raid,
"to keep a whole congregation Interested In all
mlrslons. provided the missionary does not let them
forget her."
Speaking of the work of the missionary teach
ers afterward, Mrs. Boole said (hat as a rule they
were kindly received by all classes, and that one.
hundred Jind ten Presbyterian churches 1110 now in
existence which. In .-ill probability, would never
have been organised but for them.
"Considered from a purely educational point
of view." she continued, "our teachers arf> doing
an Important work in Cuba and Porto Rio. for
the government schools are not sufnclrnt to meet
the needs of the people, and they .ire eager to
learn. Some of our Hrh<>ols have t.i turn away
ns many children as th«y accept, and th« people
are generally Just as ready, to receive spiritual
Instruction from the missionary teachers .us to
liav<» their children educated It; our schools. The
Woman'! Hoard of Home Missions baa niii(t-« soxna
startling discoveries In the course of Us twenty
five years of work, having found In our own States
and Territories, as well an In our new Spanish-
Ame-rlran possessions, •many communities that
are little removed from paganism.**
Pr. John I)l\i<n presided at the. farewell, and
addresses were given by Miss Rachel Wheeler, of
th» school department of the Woman's FWnl. and
the Rev. Waldo Stevenson, of Guinea, Cuba.
The- missionaries salting to-day art Miss Sarah
Williams and Miss Maeston. who ar« going to
Aguadllla. Port.> Rico; Miss Sara Putter. going to

BACHELOR MAIDS AND MEN.
"Apropos of Ti;..- alwuys timely discussion of the.
attitude of bachelor maids toward matrimony and
keeping; duties, and the fear some women
who lack the courage to Join their ranks express
that men will not love such women, comes the
question. "Who. then, will men lover " asks "The
Boston Transcript.'' "I>eUclously pertinent. Isn't
it' For as sac doubts the power and pronenes* of
men to fall In lov*. and be In lore tho greater part
Of their lives, «r.d if all th« women uhom they
meet cherish the vtwwa Of tdvanced maidens,
irhl<b views are for» numerous to mention here.
u{ course they will k>ve that Sort. If In the past
men have loved women In »p!t« of their faults. ;ind
will through effort* of the bachelor maids, In
future love them In »plte of their virtues, who
shall say the chance is i ■■•♦ f^r th* better? And.
nnyway. a wise man has fold that when a man

Harry Farquharaon thought as «** met her in
the Rue Rnyalo that he had never seen the
pretty Mrs. Urquhart l«K»klng so pretty. He h:»d
gone over with a party of friends some days
before to spend a week In Parts; the friends bad
been called back across the Channel unexpected
ly, and he had been alone In Paris for twenty
four hours and was beginning to find hid own
company the, most uninteresting company in the
world. And now to meet Irene Urquhart of all
people. ,
"I don't know that I ought to," was her an
swer to his appeal that she would have a look
at the Salon with him and lunch at tlrv Ainl>:'.s
«.»iieur« in the Champs Elysfea afterward, "but
Still, as we are strangers In a foreign land, we
may be unconventional for once. I take it." And
Harry I . Farquharson nad the self-possession to
restrain thr> obvious rejoinder which leap! to
his lips that it only rested with a small word of
three letters on the pretty widow's part to give
the world no scope for scandal if they two
should be met together anywhere. "I've had
the thing upon my mind so many months." he
said to himself, "that an hour more won't hurt,
and I'll propose over the strawberries and
cream."
He didn't, and the story I am telling Is the
reason. * _ '
The two spent a delightful hour in the Salon
talking a little of the pictures and a great deal
on that most pregnant of topics, old memories
of their respective childhoods; for long beforo
Irene Matheson had become the wife of the rich
Mr. Urquhart she and Harry Faxquharson had
been playmates and child lovers even.
"And now for luncheon." said Farquharson.
looking at Ids watch. They strolled down the
broad staircase of the CJrand Palais out into the
KlyHian Fields, the name of which Farquharson
mentally declared had never been so well de
served a* It was that day. and climbed the
pretty wooden staircase to the Ambassadeurs
They found a table In a. corner, when Just as
Farquharson had begun studying the bill of fare
Mrs Urquhart gave a little cry of dismay.
"Oh! I forgot to buy an illustrated catalogue,
she said, "and I want one to take back with me
°Farquhn'rson laughed. "That's not partlcular-
Farquharson laughed. "That's not partlcular
ry difficult." ho said "Ch.isseur'." And when
the man In the gold braided uniform appeared
h» sent him off for one.
Rut hh he did so a quick look of annoyance
passed over his face. When he met Mrs. Urqu
hart he had been on his way un to the I •"'
Lyonnata to .ash a check. To buy the cata
logue he had taken a twenty-franc piece from
his wal.<tcoat pocket, and realized that all the
money there besides It wan Just one Smaller
coin. Less than .'SO francs to pay for luncheon,
and luncheon with a lady. too. The position was
certainly an awkward one. However, with a
little care It might bo managed, and for -first
time 111 his life Farquharson sought out those.
IteVrVon the bill of faro likely to be cheapest,
feeling a flush over his face of most unreason
able annoyance at the obsequious murmur of
th For n form f< s h E°a t ke he consulted his companion,
but everything she chose was. for one reason or
another, put nslde. and the poor man felt ( hor

(Aen'.ia/cn was served— must have salmon

tTt-r the Salon, Farquharson reflected ruefully
the chasseur came back with the catalogues.
"Monsieur." he, explained, " has not said which
catalogue was wanted, vi he had purchased both
of them the Beaux Arts and the Artistes Fran
cais" 5 Farquharson lost. his temper, and to his
guest's" astonishment harangued the wretched
chasseur violently on his foolishness and waste
of money and finally dismissed him without the
smallest tip. felt herself wondering whether
Mr-, frquhart felt lierielf wondering when ••;
Farquharson had recently had money- losses.

Always lots of sunshine sandwiched In between tne

With the hard work comes the peaceful rest.
Lots o" clays that's lair and bright;
Mighty few dark days in tight.
Treats a fellow pretty well, this old world of ours.
Even when the days look sad ™d drear:
When the thorns are pushed aside you can nnd the

Smiles will make the heartaches disappear.
Likely place— this world— to dwell;
Treats a fellow pretty well.
Treats a fellow pretty well, this old world of ours.
There's a smile for every tear and sigh;
There's a rainbow gleaming through every cloud

Tolling of the sunshine by and by.
Pretty good old world. I say.
Getting better every day.

the tisane d<» champagne, explaining that the j
brand monsieur bad ordered had run short and
thai he bad, so as not to keep monsieur waiting,
opened a bottle of ■ batter on*. Harry called for
the wine list and stormed furiously at what he
called an unwarrantable extortion.
"You think. I suppose." he *aid, "that Just
because I am an Englishman 1 may be robbed
at will, l shall not forget It nt the end of
lunrbron." And Mrs. I'rquhart wondered more
and more. This certainly was not the Harry
F^rqubaraon whom she bad thought she knew,
and she was not enjoying herselt us she had ex
pected to do.
From time to time as luncheon went on Harry
tried to regain his spirits, but there was un
doubtedly ■ cloud over their enjoyment, and
conversation waned and lagged somehow. As
Mrs. Trquhart told the Marquise de Beuuvolr
later that afternoon her host seemed to be
watching each asparagus aha pal Into her mouth
and wondering what the cost of It would be,
an<l there were times when she felt quite In
clined to pass her purse to him across the table.
Hud she but known it that might have saved the
situation.
"You find It much too hot for coffee and
liqueurs, don't you?" was Farquharsoo'i Inhos
pitable question after the strawberries and
ream. nnd with a half smile Mrs. Urquhact
said she did.
When he called for the. bill Farquharson as
tonished her still more by quarrelling- with sev
eral items on It and Insisting upon one or two
reductions, which were made. His tips to the
waiter and tho cellarman were meagre to an
extraordinary degree, and as they passed down
stairs the guest could not but notice the per
functory farewell with which they were saluted.
She could not. of course, know that the two
meagre tips he pave the men had left her host
with Just three halfpence in his pocket.
Farquharson did not suggest accompanying
her to her hotel. To his dismay he had Just re
alized that It was Saturday, and that therefore
the early closing of his bank would make it
necessary for him to borrow money somewhere.
•Til leave this beastly town to-night If I can
get it." he mentally ejaculated. And to the
lady's blank amazement he almost hurried her
Into a cab, and never thought of paying the
coachman before she drove away.
When Mrs. Urquhart later in the same after
noon called on her mother's oldest friend, th«»
Marquise de Beauvolr. she found that lady
laughing heartily over a petit bleu, as the
Parisian* call their express letters. But Mrs.
Urquhart was not hi the mood for laughter.
She knew— what woman dues not know? that
one day or another Harry Farquharson would
ask her to exchange her uam* for his. and she
knew, too. that till that hapless luncheon her
answer would have been In the affirmative. She
did not wish to give up her old friend without a
confirmation of her fears, and she had come to
ask the Marquise de Heauvolr. Farquharson's
aunt, whether her nephew had had heavy money
losses— these would not matter, for I have
enough for two, she thought, and '.(lushed while
thinking it -or whether he worn now ns avari
cious as he had been open-handed formerly.
• Her future happiness undoubtedly depended
on the answer. To a rich woman like her - a
poor husband was a luxury she could afford, but
I could never marry a mean man, she thought.
and; with a little glow of Indignation which
made her pretty face the prettier, she told her
tale of woe to the old marquise.
"Be not afraid, mon enfant. Harry is cer
tainly not mean." she said, "but he Is poor to
day — oh. scandalously pour! See, then. 1 the post
script of this pneumatlque he sends me." ..
"You "must excuse me underpaying this mes
sage." read Mrs. Urquhart aloud, "hut the li
centimes which I have put upon it instead ot\
the • H-cessary threepence, represent all my
worldly goods at the present moment."
The young woman looked up with tears'in her
< .-•» at the older one. "1 lon truly terrible.
How did it ii. ■;>;•■■' How can ho he- as poor as
that?" she asked. "And ho« Lbsurd how, on,
how cruel of him to have spent all he had on
giving me a luncheon. [feel is though I never

•'.'Monsieur Farquharson," announced the ser
vant.
"Tell him." the old- marquise said, tripping
with '-Juvenile alacrity toward the other door.
"that I am going upstairs to see what [ can find
In my cash box, nnd ask him." she added s Ita a
little smile, ' i" glv< you .i complete explanation.

gone before her nephew 'came Into the room.
-The explanation proved entirely satisfactory.

LABOE DAY RALLY AT JTOSTHTIELH.
Among the American missionaries and educators
in the Far Kast who have visited this country in
the course of the summer was th* Rev. Henry H.
president of Euphrates College, Harpoot.
Turkey. Mr. Rljsks's father and grandfather weYe
two of the most successful workers of the Aroeri-
TUB RKV HENRT H. RIGGS.
Presidant of Euphrates College, Harpoot. Turkey.
can Board of Commissioners for Foreign • Missions
In the Orient. Before his departure. Mr. Rigga
gave the following account of Euphrates College:
Standing on nearly the highest ground In the
city, at the top of the. steep slope. 1.200 feet above
the plain, the seven buildings of Euphrates Col
lege, together with the orphanages and missionary
residences of Harpoot station, form the most con
spicuous feature of the city of Harpoot, v!stb!e
for miles from the west, south and east. Of these
buildings, three are occupied by the male depart
ment—the college, the high school and the dormi
tory. The grammar school is In a part of the. dor
mitory building, and th« primary school Is la
rented quarters at present. Two buildings are oc
cupied by the female department, and two are tho
homes of the American teachers and the president.
Of these seven buildings, only three belong to tho
old Euphrates College. The rest have been erected
within the last three years as a standing witness
to the fnlluie of the efforts made in ISJi to wipe
out the college in the general devastation of that
year of fire and Mood.
The history of Kuphrates College, like that of
most missionary colleges, shows a gradual though
fcU-ady growth. First, a preachers" training class,
which developed Into a normal school, with a de
partment for women, to prepare teachers for vil
lage schools. This, in turn, expanded downward
as the need was felt for primary »<.j^:itic>n. and
upward till, In !>7s, the collegiate department -was
organized. In the nil year th^ trustees of the
college were Incorporated In Massachusetts and the
college began its independent existence. Tha
founder and first president was the. Rev. Dr. C. H.
Wheeler, who served until !OJ. when he was suc
ceeded by the Rer, Dr. C. F. Gates. Dr. Gates'*
acceptance of the presidency of Robert College.
Constantinople, In !>'-. 1-ft the college without a
president, and the Rev. Dr. H. N. Barnum, as on
previous occasions, served as acting president until
the present president took up the work in Yj<C
The tirst class was graduated from the male de
partment in l»->. and th« first from the female
department three years later. In the twenty-four
classes of young men there have been US grad
uates. Many of these have become prominent in
various callings. ; , ,
Euphrates College Is peculiar In the multiplicity
of its departments, all under one management ana
on the same ground, but in some respects quite dts
li nc from one another. First, then is the divi
sion, of the whole Institution Into Its male and
female departments, in separate buildings, except
the kindergarten, as the customs and sentiment
of th- land require. Each of these, too. lias its
primary, grammar, high school ana collegiate de
partments, making a very complex machine.
Th« estimate put upon the. work of the college
and its preparatory schools is shown by the fact
that even in their poverty the people are ready to
pay a far larger sum for tuition than Is paid In their
own schools Th« total paid by pupils for tuition
last year waa S&2B4L Besides the amount paid
us tuition for private music lessons. $103 66. pupils
In the boarding department paid for board and
incidentals ».7<S3 31. making a total paid by I the
pupils for the year (not including- books) of Kl»01.
In addition to this there was paid to the college
for poor pupils, from orphan and other benevolent
funds $>'.<« X. making the grand total received on
account of pupils 57.03534. The expenses Of the
college for the year, aside from American mission
aries and building expenses, were R'.S2S »4
The course of study !s planned to provide a col
lege training suited to th<* special needs of the
country. Turkish. Armenian and English are
taught and mathematics, history and the sciences
have their proper places. A course in French is
also offered. The aim is to give the students th«
necessary training and equipment to make them
able leaders among their own people.
Hut Euphrates is distinctly a missionary college-.
While no distinction is made as to church connec
tion and a large majority of the pupl s are not
Protestants. It Is the avowed purpose of the college
:,. lead its student* not merely to a good, moral
life but to a real Christian faith. Dally Bible
lessons, religious meetings personal effort of all
sorts combined with the ordinary drill of the class
r om all have this one ultimate aim-to develop
Christian leaders. In this work and aim Kuphrates
stands ritoae In the Held, which comprises some
eighty thousand square miles. This region is the
real home of the Armenian people a people of
ereat possibilities, but deadened and disheartened
by the conditions In which tl'.;y live. The future
must certainly bring better circumstances It is
?n" opportunltr of Euphrates College to take the
lead in the movement toward a new life. Intellect
, 1 training, coupled with deep faith and unselfish
devotion ca ii make of the youth of this Christian
race an Irresistible forte for the regeneration of
intern Turkey. It was for this purpose that the
cT.Uo«" was founded, and to this end we labor
and pray.
