THEY ALSO SERVE.
"They also serve who only stand and wait."
Take comfort from that thought in lonely
hoars.
Whan naught seems set aside for yon by fate
To do, while others have far richer dowers.
With days brim full of hope and work and
love.
Full to the brim and haply running o'er.
The angels, watching from their homes above.
Can aea how sad the waiting is—how sore.
But if the waiting is not all m vain—
If those who wait are serving truly too—
■ Oh. then they need not mind the nameless
Pain,
But think it Is the part they are to do.
And peace and rest will nil the lonely days
That ones were filled with naught but pain
and woe.
For, though we cannot understand His ways.
Enough to know Our Father wills It so.

THE HOSTESS AND HER GUESTS.
An Afternoon Tea Baa Come to Be an
Interesting Game of Hide and Seek.
There seems to be some misunderstand
ing abroad in the community, and very
likely elsewhere as well as in Boston, in
regard to the true functions of the host
ess at an afternoon tea; and the editor,
who goes about burdened with the ter
rific consciousness that he is the only
person alive who knows the exact truth
about everything, is willing to give an
otherwise unoccupied moment in the
elucidation of the matter.
The duties of a hostess at an afternoon
tea, then, are far more simple than they
are at most social functions. It is first
and primarily her duty to welcome every
body who arrives with either the air of
greeting her dearest friends or with the
blase and wearied air of one who has got
beyond the point where any mortal was
of the slightest possible interest to her.
It is at the option of the hostess which of
these manners she will choose, and of
course if She is a clever woman, she se
lects the one which is most becoming to
her style of face and figure, and dresses
to suit the manner decided upon.
This being done, or rather this point
being attended to, the only other duty of
the hostess which is of any especial im
portance is the breaking up of any inter
esting and pleasant conversation. If she
perceives—and it is her duty to be on
the watch with eagle eyes—that two per
sons are enjoying each other's society,
or thai a couple are chatting together
with any animation, it is imperative that
she should swoop down upon them in- !
atantly, saying:
"There, you two cannot stay here talk
ing all the afternoon."
She must then select as a partner for
each in a new conversation the person in
the company who is most completely
disagreeable to him and to her and ar
range each to his most complete dis
. satisfaction.
This is the great and most imperative
object of an afternoon tea. The hostess
is not a success who leaves two agree
able and harmonious persons within
speaking distance for more than an in
significant fraction of a moment; and it
is by her power of making things un
pleasant that her cleverness and social
eavoir faire are to be judged.
This peculiar form of social torture is
mitigated by the part which the guest
is expected to play. It is Mb right and
privilege to do all in his power to cir
cumvent the schemes of the hostess for
his unhappiness, and to arrange the most
pleasant possible tete-a-tetes in her de
spite. The longer he can prolong them,
moreover, the. greater is his rank as a so
cial lion.
An afternoon tea thus becomes a sort
of game, in which the cleverness of the
hostess is pitted against the cleverness
of the guest. The odds in favor of the
hostess are the contrariety of circum
stances, the conventions of society which
forbid the victims to leave the unwel
come partners to whom they are pre
sented except in ceremonious ways, and
the fact that for the time being the
guests are under her orders.
On the part of the guests, however, is
the fact that there are so many couples
that it is an exceedingly clever hostess
who can keep track of them all, and
also the posssibility of getting into some
sly and secluded nook where she will
not think to look. Of course the hostess
knows the corners in her own house
pretty thoroughly, but she has not the
time while attending to so many guests
to run out every few moments to ex
plore the conservatory if it is open, to
look under the stairs in the hall, to peer
into the bay windows and to examine
any alcove which the fiendish foresight
of a masculine architect has smuggled
into the designs of her house for her
confusion
The odds are about even in the game
it is evident, and yet—and yet it is the
editor's painful conviction that it is al
ways the hostess who gets the better in
the garnet—Boston Courier.
The Mother of an Empress Dead.
Both the emperor and empress of Aus
tria were too unwell to go to the funeral
of the empress' mother, who died last
week at the age of eighty-six, having sur
vived her husband nearly four years.
The empress is now at Istria. and her
medical attendants are very anxious as
to the possible effect of her mother's
death on her mind and health. The Prin
cess Louise WUhelmina was a woman
of strong character and great energy.
She inherited none of the peculiarities of
the Bavarian royal family, and always
exercised a salutary influence on her
daughter, whose eccentricities she often
checked at an opportune moment. She
spent nearly the whole of her life at
Munich, where she was born during the
troubles occasioned by the invasion of
Napoleon I.—London World.
She Is in Doubt.
A girl who received an invitation to s
"Ladies' Day" at one of the clubs, with
the inscription, "Miss and fiends,"
is still wondering if the omission of that
"r" was accidental or maliciously inten
tional. —Philadelphia Music and Drama.
Tight Lai ing Too Prevalent.
No doubt many deaths from tight
lacing occur, but are not reported. Tight
lacing appears to be carried on, both by
girls and women, entirely too frequently.

DEFINITIONS OF A LAUGH.
Pat Expressions Concerning an Act of
Which Moat People Are Guilty.
A London weekly paper, Tit-Bits, of
fered a prize of ten dollars for the best

ment to wit.

iard of derision and the mockery of
despair.
An ostentatious* display-of one's own
sense of humor.
The oil which .'make the lamp of life
burn bright andaclear.
The explosion produced by a flash of

A Tamed Lion.
At the Zoo.a young lion from Sokoto
was much intent* on breaking in the iron
shutter which separates the house it
now occrapies fnom its former quarters
next door. Apart from the very proper
wish to assert a- right to its former dom
icile, it had the irritating stimulus sup
plied by an ill tempered and decrepit
old leopard which, was growling on the
other side of the shutter, and even went
so far as to insert) one of its 1 on lrest teeth
into the crack between the shatter and
the wall as a reminder to the lion of
what was waiting for it on tbe other
side.
The lion was, striking constant heavy
blows on the door, and waa so intent on
its occupation, as to disregard the call of
its keeper. The keeper quietly attracted
its attention, by-pulling its taill—and the
lion at owee desisted, ruSbbed its face
against the keeper's hand and lay down
to be stroked, patted and have its mane
caressed. A very beautifull puma close
by exhibited all the pleasure of a friend
ly cat at being stroked, aaid the tiger
from Ttarkestaa allowed himself to be
foncUexUlike a big dog.—London Specta
tor.
A Cordial Reception.
Early one morning, recently, I called
to see gentleman who hadjiut yet left
his bed., I was met at the door by a
womanswhose sleeves were- rolled np,
who ware an ample apron ttpon which
were various spots of flour and whose
face was not entirely free from similar
spots. It was "bake day," bttt she did
not embarrass) me by any reference to
the fact or anj- apology as to he v appear
ance. She asl:ed me into the pa rlor and
after sending one of the child Ten up
stairs to notifjy the father of m y pres
ence, re-entered the parlor and i '.hatted
until her husband appeared about' vari
ous topics in sin entertaining, easy "man
ner, quite as though she had bee n ex
pecting and -was all fixed up to re eeive
me. It was, simply delightful and my
great grief is that 1 have no suffit aent
excuse to make another early mon ting
call at the same home.—Detroit I Tee
Press,
A Way of Cooking Rodents.
The negro slaves of Jamaica used; to
regard rats as a dainty, their masters
not providing them with any other m< eat.
Their method of cooking the tooths ome
rodents was to impale each one cm a
long wooden skewer, after cleaning the
animal and cutting off the tail, turning
it briskS y around over a fire until, the
hair was all burned off. Then it -was
scraped until free from fur, and finsJly
the endtof the>skewer was stuck inttotthe
ground., inclined toward the fire,, uftfcil
it was toasted.dry and crisp, thus being
made readyfor the meal.—Wash ington
Star.
Stockings Kept Black.
Black stockings are apt to afjsnme a i
greenish look after repeated washings.
We are told that a simple way-of pre
servingrthe color is/to wash them imsoap
free of .soda, and inrthe last rinsing water
to add a tablespoonfnl of good vinegar.
Wring them out and clap them into
shape. A hot iron tends to destroy the
color, particularly if they are wet.—

The wrong way,
with Catarrh, is to stop it without
curing it. The poisonous, irrita
ting snuffs, strong caustic solutions,
"creams," balms and the like may,
perhaps, palliate for a time. But
they may drive the disease to the
lungs. The wrong way is full of
danger.
The right way is a proved one.
It's with Dr. Sage's Catarrh Rem
edy. It cures, perfectly and per
manently, by its mild, soothing,
cleansing and healing properties,
the worst cases of Chronio Catarrh.
It has proved itself right, thou
sands or times, when everything
else lias failed.
And this makes its proprietors
willing to prove that it's the right
thing for you, no matter how bad
your case or of how long standing.
If they can't cure your Catarrh,
they'll pay you $500 in cash.
They mean it.
They're certain of their medi
