The Short-Lived Dog.
Surely it is by an unfortunate dispensation
of nature that the dog,
beyond all question the ehief friend
of man among the other animals,
should have a normal length of life
which is no more, on a fair computation,
than one-seventh of his own.
There is no other figure which expresses
the relative ages of man and
his dog so well. The puppy of one
year is about at the same canine age
as the child of seven. At two years
he is probably a little more advanced
than a fourteen-year-old boy, but the
canine age of three is very nearly
equivalent to the human twenty-one.
And so it continues through all the
years of canine and of human prime
respectively, the ratio fairly well
preserved. It has to be admitted
that the old age of the dog, thus
computed, outlasts the old age of the
man. One hears stories which seem
to be fairly authentic of dogs living
up to eighteen, and if we do hear
stories of human beings living similarly
up to 12 6, at least we do not
believe them. But such an age for
a doe is auite the extreme limit. The
dog of ten years approaches the
equivalent of the three score and ten
which had been named as the fair
end of the human creature's tether,
and on the whole the multiplication
of canine years by seven all through
the stages of life gives the corresponding
age of man better than any
other figure given it.?Westminster
Old Frcnch Dial Ring.
"A dial ring," said the cucio dealer.
"A French dial ring of the eighteenth
century. You can tell the
time with it."
The ring, of gold, was beautifully
chased, and where the stone sparkles
usually there was set a tiny sundial.
"All you have to do," said the
dealer, "is to stand in the right way,
holding the dial so that the sun
strikes it, and a tiny shadow will tell
you. the hour.
"Such a ring," he continued, "is
more a curio than an accurate timepiece.
It is only good in the locality
it is made for, and even there, unless
it is set toward the right point of the |
compass, it will be several Hours out
of the way." ? Louisville CourierJournal.

cutaway styles are having extended
vogue, and very welcome the fact is,
for they are jaunty, smart in effect,
and altogether satisfactory. This
coat is one of the simplest and best
and is made with the most becoming
lines possible. It is adapted alike
to the suit and separate coat, and is
eminently to be desired for both. In
this instance it is made of mahogany
colored brcadcioth with binding of
black silk braid, but, while this binding
is new and chic, stitched edges
are quite correct. The pointed back
is novel and desirable whenever it is
becoming, but the coat can be made
round at that point, and each wearer
should choose the style that suits her
the better. Sleeve length, too, is to
be determined by each wearer, both
full and three-quarter being correct.
All seasonable suitings and cloakIngs
are appropriate.
The coat is made with front,s, sidefronts,
backs, side-backs and underarm
gores, and is finished with regulation
collar and lapels. The sleeves
are made in two pieces each, with
I roll-over cuffs.
The quantity of material required
for the medium size is four and seveneighth
yards twenty-seven, two and
five-eighth yards forty-four or two

The lace fichu draped in kimono
fashion will be seen more during the

waist line by the girdle under which
it passes. The ends should reach
nearly to the hem of the skirt. It is

and is graceful and becoming, yet j
by no means extreme. The modified
kimono sleeves give breadth, while j
they are shapely and becoming, ana
the tucks are so arranged as to give
the best possible lines to the figure.
As illustrated, the material is pongee
in a very beautiful shade of amethyst,
while the trimming is velvet
and embroidery worked onto the material.
The over blouse, however, is
appropriate for both the separate
waist and for the gown, and for
almost every material used for garments
of the sort. Everything fashionable
is thin and soft and consequently
all can be tucked with success.
Trimming always can be
varied to suit individual taste, and
the necessities of the special occasion.
Velvet is being extensively
used and always is handsome, but
appliques are offered by the score,
and soutache applique is one of the
newest and best liked of all trimmings.
In place of the embroidery
medallions of separate motifs could
be utilized, or the material could be
left plain.

fronts and backs that are tucked
over the shoulders and gathered at

Subject: Crime of Unhappiness.
Brooklyn, N. 7.?Dr. Charles E.
Locke returned to his pulpit in the
Sanson Place Methodist Episcopal
Church Sunday. Dr. Locke's subject
ivas "The Crime of Unhappiness; or,
Where Happiness May be Found."
tfis. text was Isaiah 35:10: "They
SL1U11 UDUcllU JUJT auu giauuess, auu
sorrow and sighing shall flee away."
Dr. Locke said in the course of his
Jt is our duty to be happy, it is our
'ight to be happy. The philosopher's
stone, which can transform all the
Jross of life into purest joys, is hope,
The fabled fountain which will injure
eternal youth and beauty is contentment.
True happiness is not only
i duty and a right, but it is a possible
possession; it is the sure prize
af those who seek aright.
The rapt prophet Isaiah boldlj
foretells the time when the people
'shall obtain joy and gladness, and
sorrow and sighing shall flee away,"
and "everlasting joy shall be upon
their heads." The radiant promises
if the Word of God are not to torture
and to tantalize mankind into woes
and slaveries more abject, but are
intended to awaken our lethargic
natures and somnolent consciences
that we may be aroused to claim oui
high and holy and happy estate. Unhappiness
is a crime against God and
our fellows, as well ars against ourselves.
There is an intricate and exquisite
conspiracy in the universe to make
men happy. There are carnivals ol
beauty, panoramas of splendor, oratorios
of music, laughing waters.
lancing 6unbeams, singing birds
chanting seas, delicious fruits and
enchanting flowers. Nature is nol
cruel, health is contagious, there is s
survival of the fittest. "The common
course of things is in favor ol
happiness; happiness is the rule, misery
the exception."
As God made the sun to shine and
the flowers to bloom and the seas
to ebb and flow, bo He made man tc
be happy. "If any man is unhappy,'
said a wise man, "this must be his
own fault, for God made all men tc
be happy." The very law of oui
being is happiness. A crime is ar
offence against the laws of God and
man; unhappiness is such an offence;
hence a crime.
Happiness may be discovered ii
life's activities?in unremitting en
deavor, not in the bluster and hast<
which enervate and defeat, but in th<
constant use of our capacities. Un
rest and atrophy occur when ener
gies are allowed to become stagnant
An aimless life is always an unhappj
life. Leisure and rest have exquisit<
flavor where they are the punctuatior
points of duties faithfully dischargec
and ambitions steadily realized. Ac
tivity defies infirmity, and octogena
rians like John Wesley and Join
Whittier, Gladstone and Pope Lec
XIII hold old age at bay while the]
elaborate the closing achievements o:
eventful careers. The benevolentl]
inclined young lady who cut off th<
tail of the pollywog to hasten th<
stages of its evolution wept in dis
may when she found she had endec
the life of the little dismemberec
creature. It needed the labor of get
ting rid of its tail to develop strengtl
for the responsibilities of its promo

and undeveloped lives among th<
youth of these prosperous decades
may it not be that our educationa
and domestic methods are affordini
too much assistance, or ease, or lux
ury to these little human pollywogs'
Every faculty of our being is madi
more robust by constant and sensibl*
activity. To be able to bring thing
to pass conduces to true happiness.

if we would be happy we must asso

of Schumann says that whenever sh<

he had written her during his life

feudal systems, wars and all selfisl
ambitions must gradually go dowi
before such a sceptre. He who is no

Since all clouds have a silver lin

In possessing Christ as our life

I a specific for the world's unrest and
: care and a sure prescription for happiness.
He was a wise and skillful
doctor who, when one of his patients
described to him her symptoms,
wrote this prescription for her: "Go
' home and read your Bible for an hour
i every day." I notice that somebody
is proposing that the office of priest
and physician be combined. I should
i have no objection if there could be
i a corresponding doubling of time and
, capacity. There is no doubt that
soul sickness is the cause of much of
. the world's ailment. Christ came to
r heal \he world's woes, and the bur.
dens of humanity contemplate that
i men shall be wise enough to accept
divine help in carrying the loads
> which would not have been laid upon
, the race without a Great Burden
I Bearer. It must be remembered that
' true happiness is a celestial exotic, as
i Sheridan sings:
i True happiness is not the growth of
i earth,
i The soil is fruitless if you seek it
s there;
! 'Tis an exotic of celestial birth,
i And never blossoms but in celestial
Sweet plant of paradise! Its seeds

happy and useful living:

It's no in wealth like London bank,

It's no in making muckle mair, .$>>
It's no in books; it's no in lear,

If happiness hae not her seat
3 And centre in the breast,
I We may be wise, or rich, or great;
But never can be blest.
1 In the advent the angel said he
brought good tidings of great joy.
David sang long ago, "Happy is that
j people whose god is the Lord!" The
Christian religion has set the world
> to singing. Christianity is truth set
2 to music. Sin and death go out of
* the world when Christ and life come
in. A little boy understood his father
to say that children should be'brought
'r up in the "fear and ammunition" of
j the Lord. There is an old classical
j adage that "Every lover is a sol1
dier." Horace dedicated to his
favorite deity his lyre, his torch and
his bow. So if we would be happy
j we must be useful; knights of the
j Cross, armed with the shield of faith
, and the sword of the Spirit, and girt
f with the truth according to Jesus
J Christ!
I "Lying Spirits."
Some noteworthy admissions were
i made by several speakers at the an1
nual Convention of Spiritualists held
. in London recently. The secretary
1 of the Union, in a speech of medium
ship, warned his hearers that there
s were grave dangers attending the
2 practice. Two city gentlemen who
, also gave their testimony, admitted
1 that a "spirit' had grossly deceived
* them. By several professional Spirit
ualists it is freely admitted that lying
? spirits may deceive even the "elect."
2 The history of Spiritualism leaves no
e doubt that these "lying spirits" have
s been very numerous. Then what can
be the value of communications from
* the other side which are thus imperii
iipd ? "What guarantee has any one j
e that the truth is being told? I
e To certain people there is a great
e fascination in the idea of communii.
eating directly with the "beyond."
t But what information has ever [
, reached us from the other side that is
t really trustworthy, or of any practi
cal use? From an intellectual and
evidential point of view, there is
? nothing less satisfactory than the ret
suits of Spiritualism. On the other
e hand, according to Spiritualists themi.
selves, there are grave dangers at3
tending the medium. j
1 The Bible, in forbidding medium- |
s ship is our friend. God does not wish I
- His children to be at the disposal of 1
8 lying spirits. He has told us all that
- it is necessary to know in this life, I
7 and if men refuse that word, they will
s not be persuaded though one rose
t from the dead.?London Christian.

Candlepower of Modern Lighthouses.
A comparison has recently been
made of the power of the lights in
French lighthouses at various periods
in the past thlrty-flve years. In 1874,
when only oil lights were used, the
highest power was equal to 54,000
candles. In 1882, when the electric
light was introduced, the power rose
to a maximum of 820,000 candles.
Since then frequent improvements
have been made in the electric lights
until, at present, the most powerful
lighthouses project an illumination
nearly equal to 3,000,000 candles.
The Dog in War.
Another field of usefulness has
been found for the dog in war. He
is already employed as a scout. He
is now to serve in the ambulance
corps. Two French army surgeons
have taken up the question with earnestness,
pointing out the limitations
of human agency in collecting the
wounded, of whom, after every engagement,
large numbers go to swell
the dismal list of the "missing." It
is contended that dogs of keen scent
could with proper training render
valuable aid.?New York Tribune.
