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,

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?"
"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.

t6y*"The genial pastor of one of the
suburban churches, whose salary is
somewhat in arrears at present, stepped
into the store of one of his parishioners
the other morning and asked to
see some corkscrews?very large and
strong, ones he explained. "Why, I)r.

with such an article, anyhow ?" asked
the dealer. "My dear sir," replied the
doctor, as quick as a Hash, "I want a

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."

Text of the lesson Lake xvil, 5-19?Memory
Verses, 17-16?Golden Text, Lake
xvli, 5?Commentary by the Rev. D. M.
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
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

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.

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

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.
