THE BLOOMER GIRLS' POCKET. Some observing man's discovered (How I've never thought to ask) That Kentucky maidens' bloomers Have a pocket for a flask ; That the cycling girl of Texas, As she rides is not afraidShe provides a pistol pocket When she has her bloomers made; That the bloomer girl of Boston. Always cool and wisely frowning, Has a pocket in her bloomers Where shecarries Robert Browning; That the Daisy Bell of Kansas, Who has donned the cycling breeches, Has a pocket in her bloomers Full of woman suffrage speeches: That Chicago's wheeling woman, When her cycle makes rotations. Has a special bloomer pocket Where she carries pork quotations ; That Milwaukee's cycling beauties, As they pedal day by day, Have a tiny secret pocket Where a corkscrew's stowed away ; That the Gotham bloomer damsel. Whom Manhattan dudes admire, Has a tutti-frutti pocket Full of gum to mend her tire. Deceived the Surgeon.?A good otn Jo tnld as having occurred in the North of Scotland, where a bonesetter had risen to great fame and no small fortune by his skill. A country lad residing a few miles off had his leg hurt by one of the local factories, and had been treated for some time by the local medical men without any good result. His mother, who had great faith in the neighboring bonesetter, wanted the lad to go to him, which he 'declined, preferring, as he said, the "reg'lar faculty." Eventually, however, his mother's persuasions prevailed, and he agreed to allow himself to be taken to see Daniel K., the bonesetter. A bed for the invalid was extemporized on a cart, and accompanied by bis mother, he was, after a rather painful journey, taken to the town where the bonesetter resided. The leg was duly examined, and it was found necessary to haul it very severely, in order, as the bonesetter said "to get the bone in." The lad was liberal with his screams while this was going on, but eventually the bone was "got in," and he was told go home and in a few day he would be all right and fit for his work. "He was lifted up on the cart again, and, with his mother seated beside him, set off for home. "Didn't Danny do the thing well ?" said the joyous old lady. "Yes, he did, mother," said the lad, aw.,* r noo ai/? H fr?nl hs trie him the UUW X nao uuv wivm >v ? 0 sairleg?" The "reg'lar faculty" will, we have no doubt, appreciate the story. man who probably hailed from Buffalo played a powerful mean trick on a Detroit bridal couple at Niagara Falls the other evening. They went to a hotel and registered, had supper, and then started out for a night view of the Mighty Roarer. They had not gone far when a man called to them and said : "Have you just been married ?" "We have," answered the groom. "Going to stay here a day or two?" "Yes." "Having registered at my hotel, you probably intend to remain there ?" "Yes, sir." "Well, I want to say a word to you. I don't want any duck-deary nonsense around my house. I want no popsywopsy business on the veranda. I want no squeezing hands on the balconies or feeding each other at the table." The groom let his arm fall from his bride's waist in a slow and painful manner and the stranger continued : "The first time you call her peaches and cream, or she calls you her darling out you go." "Yes, sir." "She's no sweeter than ten thousand other girls, ana you re no mure ui a darling than I am, and I won't stand lovesick nonsense." He walked away with that, and people at the Falls who knew the bridal couple were amazed to hear them address each other as Mr. and Mrs., and to see what precautions they took to prevent touching hands or betraying any symptoms of love. They put in two wretched days, and it was only as they were upon the point of leaving that they discovered how a base villain had duped them. A Strong Defense.?"Jedge, yer honor," said Tim the Tramper, "I ain't guilty o' doin that job o' burglary. De evidence is agin me, but I kin prove a alibi." "Have you any witnesses?"

"Well, de testimony shows dat whoever done de work got inter de bouse by fus' cutting his way wid an ax through de front door, an then again through the library door." "Yes."

"Why, I)r. , what in the world do you want with such an article, anyhow ?" asked the dealer. "My dear sir," replied the doctor, as quick as a Hash, "I want a corkscrew large enough to give me some assistance in drawing my salary !" The story reached the ears of the congregation, and the indebtedness was cancelled forthwith. Twitting on Facts.?Two men were quareling. One of them threatened to shoot the other. The threatened man, in revival of an old piece of sarcasm, asked: "Where do you bury all your dead." Just then an excited man drew the satirist aside and said: "My gracious, you ought not to talk that way!" "Which way ?" "Asking that man where he buries his dead." "Why ?" "Because he is a physician." %'agsidr gatherings. B3F We should do well to take counsel from the wise, and warning from the foolish.

Jor the jfiirmc <?iwk THE SUNDAY SCHOOL. LESSON V, SECOND QUARTER, INTERNATIONAL SERIES, MAY 3. Text of the lesson Lake xvil, 5-19?Memory Verses, 17-16?Golden Text, Lake xvli, 5?Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. 6. "Increase our faith." Wo road in Rom. x, 17, that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. If we firmly believe ono word of God, that is faith in God. If wo bolievo two words, that is more faith, and bo on. Faith is not a feeling nor an emotion, but simply a firm and steadfast rosting on what the GocTof truth has said, wholly regardless of our feelings or circumstances. Faith says, "I believe God that it shall bo even as it was told me" (Acts xxvii, 25), evon Al L ? a# Paul AUflrvt,hlno EllUUgU U3 1U U1IO ? ? ? J c seems against it. 0. ''And tbo Lord said, If yo had faith as a grain of mustard seed." A mustard seed is a very small seed, but it has life in it which, when planted in the earth, will soon make itself manifest. The life of faith Is the word of God, and this word planted in tho soul will surely grow, but It must bo plantod. If only on the surface, like the seed by tho wayside, tho devil will catch it away. If on rocky or thorny soil, it will either wither or be choked, but received into an honost hoart it will bear fruit to the glory of God. 7-9. This illustration of the servant doing what he was oommanded seems intended to enforco obedience, simple and unquestioning. In verses 3 and 4 our Lord had said that they should forgive a brother seven times a day if necessary. To this they said, "Increase our faith," when it was not a matter of faith, but of simple and unquestioning obedience. Having boon forgivon millions of offenses by Him, who laid down His lifo for us, and needing and receiving that forgiveness in greater or less degree continually, it is surely a small matter that Vvo forgive others even seven times a day. 10. "We are unprofitable servants. We have done that which was our duty to do." Some who bear the name of Christ Jesus our Lord are often heard to 6ay, "I ought to do this and that." And tho most of their religion is doing what they feel they ought to do, but really have no hoart for. They would not like to be considered unprofitable servants, but lot them consider this word of our Lord. It Is so different when the love of Christ constrainoth (II Cor. v, 14). God did not give His Son and the Son did not give Himself because He ought to do it, but because Ho so loved. 11. "Ho passed through tho midst of Samaria and Galilee." Ho was on His way to Jerusalem to die, and, although Ho knew that the Samaritans would not receive Him (Luke ix, 51-58), yet Ho loved them enough to give them tho opportunity. He was, in a sense, ever laying down , His life while on His way to Golgotha, where He actually laid it down. Ho pleased not Himsolf. He glorified God. Ho gave His life for His enemies. He desires, in the person of His folJowors, to be still passing through tho midst of those who need Him whether they will have Him or not. 12. "There met Him ten men that were lepers, which 6*tood afar off." He knew that He would moet these lepers, and probably entered that villago that Ho might moet thom. Ten is suggestive of one aspect of completeness, as in the ten virgins, and these lopcrs may stand for all the unclchn whom Jesus came to heal. 18. "Jesus, Master, havo mercy on us." ' A cry of real need and of utter helplessness. He helps those who have no helper, not those. who can help themselves, as some 6ay. Ho came not to call the righteous, but 6inners. They that are whole, in their own estimation, will not bo likely to call a physician. But sinking Peter, and unclean lepers, und helpless blind men, who plead nothing but their great Deed and His mercy will always get His ear, and find His heart full of compassion, and His arm strong to save. 14. "As they went they wero cleansed." Here is a case of unquestioning obedience. They asked for health, and He told them to go and show themselves unto tho priests according to law, as written in Lev. xill and xiv, for Ho came not to destroy tho law, but to fulfill it nnd to magnify it. In chapter v, 14, Ho first healed tho leper and then sont him to the priest, but here tho lopors aro sent without being hcnled, and thoir cleansing caino as they oboyed. There is always blessing in obedicnco. 15. "Ono of thorn, when ho saw that ho was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God." His heart is foil. He cannot restrain his joy. Ho must stop and thank' his Healer before ho goes to tho priest. Jesus is God manifest in tho flesh. God in Christ has healed him. Ho will first thank God, and then, if still so commanded, show himself to'tho priest. 10. "And foil down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks, and he was a Samaritan." Who so offeroth prniso glorifleth God (Ps. 1, 23), and it is always a good thing to givo thanks unto tho Lord. How many times wo ask Him for mercies, but not always do we return to givo Him thanks. In trouble we cry unto tho Lord, but in prosperity we oft fall to praiso Him. 17. "And Jesus answering said, Wore thoro not ten cloansod? But whero are tho nine?" Ha certainly looks for our gratitude, and in everything wo aro give Him thanks (I Thess. v, 18). If we only bolioved tho things thut aro freely given /r n XI 1 f?\ V nfA LU UM U1 UUU yx. b/Ur. 11, laj, uuu uuau r? \j aro blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ (Eph. 1, 8)u our hearts would bo full of thanksgiving for oursolvos and of potitions for othors less favored. It is our priviloge to bo wholly at rost concerning ourselves oncowo are in Christ and to live wholly unto Him to bloss othors. 18. "There aro not found that roturned to give glory to God savo this stranger." We might ask: Whero aro all thoso who trusted Hhn to savo thorn? How many aro in llioir daily life giving glory to God? But a more practical question for each one Is, Has Ho healed me? And if so am I making it manifest in my life that I nm not my own, but that I am bought with a price that I may glorify God in my body and spirit which aro His? (I Cor. vi, 19, 20.) Am I obeyingthocommand, "Whether, tlioroforo, ye oat or drink or whatsoever yo do, do all to tho glory of God?" (I Cor. x, 81.) Or am I content with a religiousness which shows itself to earthly priests without seeking chiefly and in all thing0 tho glory of God? 19. "And Ho snld unto him, Ariso, go thy way; thy fnith hath mado thee whole." The nine were cleansed from their leprosy, but this man goes away cleansed body and soul. Tho woman who loucnea tne noni 01 his garment was healed of her Infirmity, but when Ho said to her: "Daughter, bo of good comfort. Thy faith hath made theo whole. Go in peace" (chapter viil, 48), there was something more than healing for the body. t)8F Paupers in Holland, who are too lazy to work, are sufficiently cured bv an ingenious scheme. Each man is put singly into a cistern, and a flow of water is turned on. By brisk exertion the lazy man is able to pump out the water as fast as it runs in and save himself from drowning. Jatra and fireside. I d THE SHIFTLESS FARMER. o Are you acquainted with him? Did p you ever see him? Is he your neigh- e bor? The editor of the Navasota tl (Texas) Tablet gives such a full and tl accurate description of one, that A should you meet him you could hardly g fail to recognize him. The editor says p the shiftless farmer has a life-long c ambition to gain a reputation for wearing a dirty shirt. He will alarm the neighborhood by c getting up two hours before day, and e then sit around and not go to work t< until after sunrise. e tt 211 _:j, j ?i. .. xie win nue uruuuu a ween iuumu^ v for a $2 bog. p He will complain of hard times, then y tear bis pants climbing over a fence n where a gate ought to be. 8 He will pay $3 for a new bridle, s and then let the calf chew it to pieces d before Sunday. r He gets all bis neighbors to help in ti getting a cow out of the bog, then lets I her die for want of attention. She will get in aud destroy his crop at a place in his fence that he has been A putting off fixing for six months. a He will sprain his back lifting some- u thing to show how stroug he is. h He will go in his shirt sleeves on a t cold day to show how much cold he p can stand, aud then return home at t night and cccupy two-thirds of the 1 fireplace till bed time. k He will ridicule the mechanism of a b corn planter and then go out and c smash bis thumb nailing a board on ? the fence. He will goto town on Saturday and come home with fifty cents' worth of t coffee, a paper of pins and a dollar's j worth of chewing tobacco. c He is economical; economy is his j forte; he will save ten cents' worth of \ axle grease and ruin the spindle of a c $70 wagon. t He won't subscribe for a newspaper, r Out will borrow irom ms iriena anu fail to return it. l Balky Horses.?A New York i horseman tells bow be at one time i started balky horses. He walked up c to the balky horse, patted bis neck, e and tulked to him, aud the first thing i anybody knew, the team was going . down the street so fast that the coachman could hardly hold them. "How did you do it?" asked a bystander. "That is what the man wanted to know, and all other people. So far as any one could see, I hadn't done anything; but I had. You walk up to the horse's head, aud pretend to feel around a little, and then, as quick as you can, stick a pin through the tip of the ears, and let it stay right there. The ears are the horse's tenderest point; he cannot do anything without bis ears. As soon as the pin goes through his ear, you can make up your mind that he kuows it. "He probably thinks it is some new kind of fly, and the whole force of his mind is centered in getting away from ] that fly, so he does the only thing that is left, that is, tears away at full speed. I dou't believe that scheme ever failed. There are balky horses that will ] let you build a fire under them without moving ; but there is not one that will stand still and let you stick a pin through bis ears." i Tho whnlo nhilnanhv nf enrinc a I *"v T,MV,w r?" o ? balky horse is to change the current of j his thoughts ; give him something else to think about. It is about the same ] with balky men, who are about as common as balky horses. Sewing On Buttons.?"When I f get a bright idea, I always want to J pass it along," said a lady, "as she was j watching a young girl sewing. "Do t your buttons ever come off, Lena?" "Ever! They're always doing it. j They are ironed off, washed off, and ] pulled off until I despair. I seem to a shed buttons at every step.1* "Make use of these two hints when j you are sewing them on, then, and see t if they make any difference. When 1 you begin, before you lay the button ^ on the cloth, put the thread through, so that the knot will be on the right side. That leaves it under the button, and prevents it from being worn or ifnnoH nwnv nnd thus heinnninir the loosening process. 1 "Then, before you begin sewing, lay a 1 large pin across the button, so that all ' your threads will go over the pin. After you have finished tilling the 1 holes with thread, draw out the pin J and wind your thread round and ^ round beneath the button. That makes a compact stem, to sustain the pulling S and wear of the buttonhole. "It is no exaggeration to say that my buttons never come off, and I'm j sure yours won't if you use my meth- g od of sewing." C A Cure For Diphtheria.?The c following remedy is said to be the best 1 known, at least it is worth trying, for c physicians seem powerless to cope with the disease succesfully. At the first indication of diphtheria in the throat C of a child, make the room close; then take a tin cup and pour into it a quan- p tity of tar and turpentine, equal parts. C Then hold the cup over the fire so as p to fill the room with the fumes. The little patient, on inhaling the fumes, will cough up and spit out all the membranous matter, and the diphthe- ?. ria will pass of!'. The fumes of the tar 81 and turpentine loosen the matter in j the throat, and thus afford the relief* that has baffled the skill of physicians. Scientific American. Chicken Lice.?Mix one-half ounce of carbolic acid with a gill of fresh * lard and rub some of the mixture well w into the breast and body and under the wings of the mother hen. Do this T just at night. Coal oil may also be used on young chicks if used sparing- * ly. Dip the finger in the oil, and just j touch the head and under the wings. If care is taken to have the hen and B her chiclft come from the nest free from lice and the coop is well dosed in ? every crack with coal oil, the chickens -g will not be troubled with lice. In this case, as in many others, prevention is I] easier thau cure.?Prairie Farmer. , , S B@T French women often collect all ? the fruit stones that come in their way during the summer?cherry, plum, A each and apricot stones. They are cashed and boiled in clean water, ried in the sun, and put into chintz r printed linen bags. When hot aplications are required for tooth or arache or rheumatic pains, one of * hese bags is made thorougly hot in tl he oven and laid on the affected part. r< l bag of fruit stones, thus heated, is ^ ood for cold feet. The stones give a a leasant, spicy scent, and retain the aloric for a long time. . ^ . S( Salt Foe Dairy Cows.?Dairy e attle ought to have access to salt n very day, and salt should be added o all their stable feed. A series of xperiments has convinced me that fhen cows are denied salt for a ? ? 1- il? ?.:ii terioa 01 even one ween., iue; win ield from 14$ to 17$ per cent, less lilk, and that of an inferior quality.

' ?he pepper and the salt are the :nives that do the cutting aud the ioney heals the wound. In extreme ases, a dose of oil will help much at iret. An Inhalation.?As an inhalation, urpentine has proved of great service a bronchitis, pneumonia, pleurisy and a itber throat and lung affections. If p ou have a cough sprinkle a little on a c landkercbief and hold it to your aouin ana nose ior a iew uiiuuica, ireathing the vapor, and note the ^ elief. n ? . . s New Crops.?No farmer should r nake a radical change to a new crop ? mless he fairly understands all about 3 t.
