There is no greater blessing In this
world than a steady job, with increas
ing efficiency and hence increasing
wages as time goes on; and the only
way to insure that happy state for
each individual is to give him the
training for some skilled vocation in
life, whether it be In business, in
trade, or in a profession.-Paul H.

HOT WEATHER BEVERAGES.
It? is well to be provided with the
materials for cooling drinks during

There is no drink so sat

In the time of fresh
berries there are any
number of concoctions cooling arfd ap

made last year will now be appreci
ated. Grape juice is another most
delightful drink. A few bottles of
ginger ale kept near the ice and
served with a snappy ginger cookie ;
and a sparkling glass of the ale will
cause your friends to rise up and
call you blesse^.

minutes, boiling steadily. Then bottle

weather drinks. Grape juice will be
found most grateful as drink in ill

grape juice, a tablespoonful of lem

TEACHING CHILDREN TO TALK
Comparatively an Easy Matter to Ger
Them to Use the Right Words in
We teach our children to eat nicely,
to walk gracefully, and to dress them
selves neatly, and all the rest of it,
? but very few of us take the trouble to
teach them how to talk in an interest
ing way, though the art of entertain
ing conversation is as valuable at
art as one can possess, says the Cam
den Daily Courier.
If you listen to the ordinary gossip
in an average family you will notice
that tb9 children use the same set
of words again and again. They have
half a dozen adjectives with which
they sprinkle their conversation and
they help out their lack of expression
by such tags as "Oh, well, you know
what I mean," or "It was a sort of
what-do-you-call-it" and so oa.
It is a pity to allow such slovenly
habits of speech to be formed. Even
when the accent and grammar are
quite good, the children's speech is
often very uninteresting just because
of the thoughtless style of expression
When a glaringly unsuitable word is
used take a chance of speaking about
it and suggesting a better one. There
will be no need to nag at the chil
dren on such points as these. They
will be only too glad to learn, if they
have the chance, for most little ones
are instinctively attracted by the mere
sound of fine words.
MADE A MATTER OF BARTER
John Wanted Contract to Be Explicit
as to the Ownership of Those
A village clergyman in England,
walking round his parish, met an old
parishioner. "Well, John," he said,
"how is it I have not seen you at
church for several Sundays?" "Hain't
got no Sunday trousers," answered
John. "Well." said the clergyman,
"I think we can remedy that. I have
a pair at home which will just about
fit you, and I will have them sent to
you today. "Thank'ee!" said John.
The trousers were duly sent, and the
following three Sundays John was
seen at church. Then, after being
absent for some time, the clergyman
again met him, "Well, John," he
said, "you have no excuse for not
coming to church lately. How is it
I have not seen you there?" "Look
here, parson!" said John. "I like a
man to speak plain. I know what you
mean; you're a-thinklng about them
trousers. I come to church three Sun
aays, an', if you don't think I earned
them trousers, just tell me how many
more Sundays I shall ha' to come
afore they're mine altogther!"

every woman should be clipped close
as the head of a convict, and care
fully measured. The inches should be
placed on record; then the hair should
be allowed to grow. Women-'s heads
are a great deal smaller than they
are measured. Beautiful hair, lovely
hair, fluffy locks, rebellious tresses
hide a multitude of phrenological
lumps that every man should know
about before he marries. The male
head, as automatically charted by
the hatter, locks more like a bear

A Question of Time.
She was a young and pretty girl of
a sporting turn of mind. Somehow
she heard that a certain horse was to
win a certain race, and, deciding to
indulge in a little speculation, she
went to a "bookie" and put a dollar
on for a win, asking how much she
would get if it came off.
"If it starts at 20 to 1 you w.IH get
$21 back," said the bookie; "if at 10
to 1, $11 bad'.; If at 5 to 1, you'll get
$6 back." j
