Just a simple spring bonnet With the brim bent or flat And some flowers upon lt; She had looked all the morn For she ?went shopping early. But som. bats roused her scorn And some hats made her surly. There were wonderful brims. There were crowns that were quainter. There were marvelous "trims" Though the hues might be fainter. There were hats that were plain And were daintily simple? Though not anyways vain In delight abe would dimple. When she tried on each one. For they truly became her; <S*.e was pretty, and none Who beheld her could blame her.> There were hats whose high price Any purse would embarrass. There were hats neat and nice Just brought over from Farts. There were bats that hail things Tbat wen s. wed on and tied on. Hats with flowers and wings? And all of them she tried on. And the saleslady gushed And the saleslady flattered? Though she aald she was rushed, ) She denied that lt mattered. Still no bonnet waa quite What the lady wns seeking. Some had not enough height. Others made har look peeking?. Others were quite too low (Not In price, but allmeusloa) Others didn't quite show Any art comprehension. But at last she found one That became her completely, "I'll take this; I must run." She decided, quite sweetly.

Inadvertently last week wo con? trived to affix the right answers to th? wrong questions, or vice versa. Mrs. Heloise Partridge of Pasadena, Cal., asked us what was good for hives on her child. and Mrs. Lizzie Rinks of Hast Wind, Ind.. wanted in? structions for dull finishing a table. Inadvertently, as we say, we told Mrs. Pinks to bathe it in lukewarm water, powder lt with pulverized starch and see that lt was not cover? ed too warmly at night. Mrs. Part ridge was advised to rub her baby down with fine sandpaper, give lt a coat of hard oil and next morning rub thoroughly with wai. The ladies? will kindly accept this as a combinec explanation and apology. We woulc separate the explanation from tin apology, but fear we might again bi inadvertent. Columbus and the Egg. Columbus having promised to stani an egg on end, failed at the firs trial, but he reversed the egg and i balanced perfectly. "Tell me, Chris," said King Perdl nand, "why did you turn tho eg| over?" "Because, your majesty, tho chickei could not stand on its head." It ls said that Columbus got th< idea of discovering America from thl Incident. But, of course, theories ar net always what they aro cracked u] to be. Hannibal's Oratory. "Forward, my brave men," shout** Hannibal; "beyond tho Alps lie Italy!" "Bah, you talk like a sweet gil graduate," growled a Carthaglnia colonel on the general's staff. Later on Hannibal completed tb resemblance by discovering tht Rome was not built in a day. In tho Museum. "Ha! Ha! Ha!" The sword UUa lower was laughing as If he had swa lowed a pointed joke. "Why so hilarious?" queried th inquisitive half of the two-beade girl.

"If Columbus had been a good ad? vertiser, the queen would not havo boen compelled to pawn her jewels to outfit his Investigating committee. He could have sold space on his three schooners for money enough to fi? nance the whole enterprise. He was too modest, however, and so the fam? ily diamonds had to go.

SIGNIFICANCE Cr SOUTH POLE Science Will Welcome the Discovery So Long Looked For? ward To. At least three branches of science, ' lt ls hoped, 'will derive Important bene? fits from the conquest of the south pole ?meteorology, geography, and seismo? graphy. More immediately Important than any oiher result ls to be, lt ls probable, the Influence of of the discovery on meteorology. In no long time, as a conse? quence of the weather maps based up j on the fuller knowledge of atmospher? ic currents in the Antarctic, doubtless brought by Scott and Amundsen, the prediction of the weather will be made a much more exact science. One ol the results hoped for is the forecast ing of the conditions of the mon coons in India and averting therebj a vast amount of damage to propertj and loss of life. To work out the many observationi pertaining not only to meteorolog] but to the other sciences and to repor on the collections in detail must, as i ?writer in the London Times points out be the work of years. It is alread: possible, however, to conjecture fron the mass of expert information put lished here and abroad regardlni Amundsen as well as Scott what ar the outlines of a great section of th globe of which only the fringe ha heretofore been touched by tho a* plorer.?Current Literature.

CANNOT HIDE THEIR IDENTIT Senders of Wireless Messages Rea Hy Recognized by Man at the Other End. Amateur wireless operators wi break In on regular calls by commc cial companies and then sign with fictitious name may find themselv. quickly identified, according to wii less operators in Chicago. The reaai ls that the "hand" of an operator as quickly recognized In wireless wo as in ordinary telegraphy. Telegraphers always recognize tl "hand" of a man who transmits m< sages and some out-of-town men ha reputations for "beautiful sendln among Chicago operators. Wlrole men say that the mere fact that wlr have bei-n oblitedated in their busine makes no difference to the man at t receiving end. He can tell at on who is sending the message if he h heard from the same man before. "Only the other day I received message from a station on the la which came from a familiar hani said a wireless operator. "I ldentifl it at once as that of a friend I ti known years before, but could t break in at that time without int ruptlng the message. As soon as completed his work, however, I s< him a personal call, lt turned out tl he was the man of my acquaintance "Some of these amateurs who thi they can fool the wireless will fl themselves in a peck of trouble so day for interfering with messages, ls easy to become acquainted w their 'hand' if they practice at all r ularly.

LESSON TEXT?Mark 3:20-35. GOLDEN TEXT?"This IS the hadsj ment. that U*ht ls come Into the world and men loved th. darkness rather than the light; for their work* were evil."? John J 19. ti? mm There are two kinds of unbelief de? picted in this lesson, the malignant, cruel, vindictive unbelief of the Phari? sees; and tbe Incredulity, the amaze? ment, the unbelief of the family and friends of Jesus. There are three nat? ural divisions of this lesson; first v. 20, 21) the unbelief of his friends who, beholding his marvelously busy life, so busy as not to take time to eat, concluded he must of necessity be insane on the subject of religion, as no other explanation would suffice. Secondly (v. 22-30) the malignant, malicious, blind unbelief of the rep? resentatives of the rulers in Jerusa? lem who had come down to "investi? gate" the popular Galilee prophet, that they might find wherewith to "ac? cuse him." Third (v. 31-35) the unbe? lief of those his nearest of kin who also sought to restrain and to turn him aside If possible from his ardu? ous labors. We have In this first section another of those wonderful gos? pel pictures. Just a touch, but so graph? ic, of the eagerness of the multitudes to see and hear Jesus. Simply to hear him was enough to draw together a crowd. Yet notice his response, he would not even pause to refresh him? self but the compassion of a great mission compelled him to minister unto them. What cared ho for rest or refreshment? Miracles Explained. The multitude had studied Jesus aa he performed his miracles and ac? counted him tobe the Messiah (Matt. 1S-SS). but the Pharisees were not tht-n willing to acknowledge him. for that would be to condemn themselves. However, here are tuese miracles that demand an explanation, and we must remember that these men came with a predetermined motive, viz.. that they might find wherewith to accuse him (see v. 2 and 6.) Not accepting the plain common sense explanation and his avowed purpose in performing miracles (Mk. 2-10) they gave out that it was by the power of the Prince of Devils, Beelzebub, that Jesus perform a?d his mighty deeds. The utter fal? lacy of such an accusation is shown by Jesus' reply. He did not upbraid them with anger though their accusa? tion was the utmost limit of malig? nity. Jesus knew that he must needs endure just such contradictions of sinners (Isa 63:3. 4), nevertheless he exposed their folly (v. L':>-27). Jesus here gives us a fine example of logic, which ls simply unanswerable. No more can a divided kingdom stand, or a divided house stand than for Satan to fight against himself. No more can the thief capture his booty unless he first finds or deceives the guard, than for Jesus to fight Satan and at the same tlue be his vassal. Satan ls a "strong" man (v. 22) and he. Jesus, came to break, to overcome, that pow? er, for he is lnded the stronger one. The subjects of Satan a.e his slaves. In the revised version we find the correct translation for verse 29. "Whosoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin," thus effectually setting at rest any thought of a future probation after our life here upon this earth. If when men love their evil deeds to such an ex? tent that they refuse to walk in the light and resolutely set their faces against the true Light, they commit the last and Irremediable sin. mi Son* of God by Faith. Lastly we see the kinfolk of Jesus, including his mother, seeking to with? draw him from his conflict with the Jerusalem lawyers, or. as has been sug? gested, if they were among the friends mentioned at the outset seeking to protect him after this interruption by taking him away to a place ot rest and quiet. Jesus was. however not understood by his nearest and dear? est kinfolk: and such has ever been the bitter grief of many of his follow? ers, a grief that ls even harder to bear than the denunciation of his enemies with all of their misrepresentation But he who was reviled and reviled not again, who was led as a lamb to the ?laughter, answers not this strange misunderstanding by any flash of an? ger, but In gentleness rebukes their ?|)f Interference with his plans and points out that his nearest and dearest are those who do his will. Jesus aa our Great High Priest is here speaking not as the Son of Mary, but as the Son of Maa. The golden text throws wonderful Slight upon this whole lesson. He. Jesus, the Light, came into the world s?** and we must account for him. Like aaaiad i Pilate, we have him on our hands. It .fuE we refuse to walk in the light we Jjj; I have committed the last and the lr 'JJZ, I remediable sin. If we sin wilfully ???? | after seeing the light, there remains no I other, no more, sacrifice for sin. When j In order to continue in our evil deeds nj which cannot stand the presence of the , Uaht. we choose rather the darkness Band refuse to submit ourselves to the eall o* tts** Light, we bring ourselves 1 auder oondomuau.au.
