THE nidNlTY OF LAltOlt.
I great deal said V' |) j t about the dig ' WwwwWnity of labor which is noth inj? more than oratorical WrjYfMlH<gv^ common place MW ing'.ess froth of the rhetor , J iJs- ician. There is no dignity about labor in itself. What is there about piling bricks on top of each other, or mixing mortar, or sewing blue denims into overalls, or trading earthen ja''s for nickel coin, that has about it any inherentdignity? It is only as there is mixed with the mortar, or builded with the bricks the holy cement of a moral purpose; only as there is stitched into the cloth the diviner thread of hopeful love. Only as the deed gathers the aroma of art in spiring human life, is it a digni fied transaction. But when you make of the laborer a slave, degrade Ills work into a mere fight for bread,harass liim by continual debt, put him in a vile tenement house that smothers all holy ambition, labor has no longer dignity, it smells rather of the dungeon and the pit. It is idle, and Pharisaical as well,for us to shrug our shoulders and say this is not a question for the pulpit. So intimate is the relation between the body and the soul that every question that has to do with the feeding or clothing of a human body is at the last analysis a moral question. ?Rev. Louis A. Banks. Cleverly Said, University Anthem-am. t Our old friend Harvey W. Har mer is pleasantly located in Clarksburg and is practicing law there. The independent Publishing Company, of Morgantown, has been granted a charter to do a general book, job and newspaper printing and binding business. The capital is $500, with the privilege of increasing to S10, 000. The incorporators are J. Milton Hackney. Harvey Vanata. John Alexander, Howard N Ogden and S. B. Brown, all of Morgantown. The company will run a weekly* paper, and it will "be a West Virginia University organ.?Preston County Journal. The above statement with re gard to starting a new university organ is incorrect. The new pa per is to be started, as stated, but it is to be an independent county paper. At the present time the new company has no intention of starting a college paper.

It may not be possible to malte the prize ring respectable, but Mr. Corbett hopes to elevate the profession considerable. Ho is a nephew of a very popular priest in County Mayo, Ireland, a graduate of a college in San Fran cisco, served as a bank clerk for several years, is a practical tern perence man and moves in good society. When asked to drink champaign after his victory he said: "Milk is good enough for me." It is noi an uncommon weakness in human naiure, after embarking in some new cause, to lose inter est and become indifferent about it after the novelty has passed off. A Spring Sonnet.

Tho Empress of Germany has introduced a new dress material ?chameleon velvet?which gives two colors, yeiow-orango and rose-pink. An almost pointed crown and very much curled brim Derby is promi?ed for spring, coming in three or four different shades. Some of the new fans aro of Oriental stuffs, with sandalwood sticks, and a largo, bushy tassel depending from tho end. Brass photograph frames in Florentine stylo are the newest, and are likely to crowd tho silver ones. Thoy am by no means ?cheap. Bangles of silver are more or less worn, and in patterns and | styles the manufacturers of them keep right up to date. Dresden china candelabra aro quite the fashion for dinnor table ornamentation, and are said to be"less monotonous than silver." Grenadines and nets are to be worn over light colored silk skirts next summer, according to the bulletin from those who know. The butterfly bow for tho hair holds its own remarkably well. Evidently that head decoration has come to stay. Leather colored silk hosiery is an affectation of the girls of the period who seem at times to be indifferent to the?condition of the streets. New and beautiful goid bonnet and hat pins are displayed among spring novelties, manv mounted with genuine precious stones. Ordinary kitchen chairs, done up with white enamel and picked out with gilt, can now masquer ade among colonial furniture. Fur Rugs in the household are more and more condemned by physicians, "because they are an obstacle to the laws of health." However much little men may object to the long-skirt frock coat, it will continue the fashion in London and New York. A new kind of shoe for women has come out christened the "Piccadilly." It "buttons up high." and looks best when on a Cinderella foot. Spring ribbons make an almost fairy-like display. The new tints in ombres and plaids can be pro perly described as "dreams." Black and white check over gaiter, which were introduced by Parisian swells last summer, will appear here a little "later on." A Columbus finger ring is something new introduced by Chicago jewelers, who aro of the opinion there will be "millions in it." * ???-? ? ? Recent marriages in Marion county ar?. William 1J.

"Turn out tho rascals." Secretary Hoke Smith has granted permission to Buffalo Bill for Indians to visit Chicago with his Wild West show. A thorough investigation of the records of the department in regard to Cody and Salisbury's treatment of the Indians, and, the beneficial re sults attending the red man's association with this organiza tion having been satisfactory, a favorable decision was given. There will be 100 Indians, and the directors intend to invite as guests tho principal chiefs of historic celebrity to visit Chicago and see the great World's Fair. Dr. George M.

Betwen the 13th and 18th the whole country will feel the effect of a warm wave, and storms of great violence are to be appre hended ob or about the 15th, 16th and 17th. The 17th is the cen tral day of the Venus perturba tion. which lasts, with growing power, for about 20 days after the central day, so that the Venus characteristics ? hail, startling electrical phenomena, enormous downpours of rain and suddtn changes from hot to cold?may be looked for during all tho! dis turbances covered by the Venus period The disturbances from the 13th to the 18th are not to be prolonged by existing cause into the reactionary storms due about the 21st and 22d. to cold. The 20th is the central day of the last period for the month, which period embraces the 25th to the 28th, inclusive. During this period it will grow very warm again, and many storms of rain, hail and thunder will travel from the west to the east across the continent. After the storms look for cold and frost. The month promises to end very cool, and tornadoes are almost certain to be a feature of the storms in many places in? April.

A mouse fell into a beer vat, poor tiling', and a cat passing by saw the struggling little creature. The mouse said to the cat: "Help me out of my difficulty." ? If I do, I shall eat you," said the cat. "Very well." replied the: mouse; "I would rather be eaten by a decent cat than drowned in such a horrible mess of stuff as this." It was a sensible cat. and said: "1 certainly shall eat you, and j you must promise me on your word of honor that I may do so." "Very well, I will give you the promise." So the cat fished the mouse out, aud. trusting to the promise, she dropped it for an instant. The mouse darted away and crept into a hole in the corner, where the cat could not get him. "But did't you promise me I might eat you?" said puss. "Yes, I did," replied the mouse; "but didn't you know that when I made that promise I was in liquor?"
