Of course, the trouble was that Mme. Pattl bad already said good-by and the American people took her at her word. The correspondent who telegraphs from the far East that Gen. Ma is the father of the Chinese army must be an Irishman. If Mme. Sarah Bernhardt tells what she knows her "Memoirs" ought to be even more interesting than those of Herbert Spencer.

Are the American people asked to believe that Mr. Schwab has been at Monte Carlo all this time and has broken the bank only once? The part of life that Isn't filled with regret is often filled with worry. Hap py is the man who has nothing worse than the weather to worry him. It's curious how a girl with shapely legs will always Insist that she would make a successful actress without ex plaining why. New York Press. A mob down in Maine has been crazed by religion. But, then, a mob can get crazed over anything, or noth ing at all. The chief thing is to got crazed. The name of Miss Spreckels, with whom M. Santos-Dumont is said to be In love, rhymes with "freckles," but a girl as rich as she is never has any. A man judges himself by the things ie thinks he is capable of doing. Oth ers Judge him by what he has done. And both Judgments are usually a bit off color. A very remarkable petition in bank ruptcy was filed the other day. The petitioner acknowledged having a few dollar's on which he does not claim exemption. A general Increase of rents faces tenants In New York.

The idea that sleeping out by hay stacks in the dewy night can be re garded as equivalent to a bath will come with the force of a painful shock to the members of the Wander ing Willie fraternity. A great deal depends upon the joint of view. That the discovery of radium was the most Important event of 1903 doesn't perhaps seem so to the man who in that time was intro duced to his first baby.

Tasteful little toilet accessories that are decorative as well as useful can be made of pretty napkin rings in China or Japanese bronze, or those ornamental wooden kind often offered for little more than the traditional song. The inside of the ring is fitted with smooth strip of cardboard and well filled with curled hair and then made into pincushion rounded at the top, after which it is covered with some bit of pretty silk or satin. The entire cushion Is slipped within the ring, which is ornamental and prac tical, inasmuch as It stands firmly upon the dressing table and holds the various pins required in making a toilet - The cover for a China napkin may be of white satin, the top decoration a spider's web in gilt thread. The Jap. anese bronze ring looks exceedingly well when covered with a small figure 1 1 of Oriental silk, while the wooden one mis an ample need in satin or silk of the prevailing scheme of the room.

They can make it of whatever tint of linen desired, from a delicate tan to a dark brown, the needlework making the feature either in flower effect, a con ventional plan, or bunches of . blos soms and field grasses. These cen ter pieces look well on a bare table or with a cloth of solid color, besides being an adornment for the table lamp. To Clean Velvet Stains may freqnently be removed by scraping pipeclay over the marks In the velvet, and then brushing the powder off lightly with a stiff brush. This will restore the bloom and raise the pile as well. Also, to raise the pile when much crushed, make an iron hot, cover it with a damp cloth and hold the velvet, lining side, over It. The operation cannot be under taken alone, for while the velvet Is being drawn over the hot Iron the pile should be whisked with a soft brush. As it is the damp heat which benefits the pile, holding It, lining side, over a basin of boiling steaming water Is also effective. Popular Picture Hat. . ' A large white chip picture hat, with a flare front brim, is decorated with a wreath of small, half-open rosebuds In white and pale pink. Rose foliage, m which the leaves are scarcely larg- er than maidenhair fern, trims the un der brim.

A good many little short coats oi the bolero order have short basques, and, despite its being rather an old fashion, some of them still pouch over back and front. Such trifles as these are entirely matters where the indi vldual figure should be considered, and no hard and fast rule can be laid down. Some women always look best with a pouched bodice, whereas It shortens some types. 8potted Fabrics In Favor. A great many spotted fabrics are used, crepe de chine and chiffon being spotted with chenille. These will.be a feature of the spring modes. For some time past we have seen white crepe, de chine spotted with black; now we have it in a variety of colors. Softer materials will take the place of spotted taffetas.

FU1 oat all blank a goalee tot, MaUianVK Bairlaoa Oa.SPlrmoMk rtaoa, CkJeafO, Immortality Tf a man 4Ie, shall he live again? Job, ilv., H. Every natural, well poised person holds life to be the dearest of all treasures. When a philosopher like Schopenhauer argues against the good of life we set him down as a pessi mist. Only the morbid person, the misanthrope, the unhealthy mind lightly values life. Wrote John Stuart Mill: "The soul yearns for life." And said Dr. Samuel Johnson: "No wise man will be contented to die if he thinks he is to fall Into annihila tion." But with this passion for life how fearful becomes the shadow of death which palls' the race of men! Just when the powers are ripest the thinker, the genius, the empire build er must drop his plans and retire from the stage of life. Shall we won der, then, that from of old, wise men should have asked Job's great ques tion, "If a man die, shall he live again?" And that great pagan think ers sought by natural proofs to con struct a doctrine of Immortality? The strongest of these, perhaps, was the historical one that drawn from uni versal belief. The Egyptians, in the tabled bird the phoenix, rising from Its own ashes; the Homeric poems, with Acheron and the realm of shades; the Hindu doctrine of me tempsychosis, the transmigration of souls, and the hymns of the Rig-Veda, the next oldest book to the Bible in the world, all teach an existence be yond the grave. And are not such universal beliefs reflections of eternal truths? And do they not point to ob jective realities, just as the aye prophesies things to be seen and the bird's wing points to a medium fitted for flight? Hence wrote Victor Hugo: "My thirst for the infinite proves that my being is infinite. Winter la on X. . J KB" 9i "THE DESCENT FROM my silver head, but eternal spring is In my heart" The philosophical argument, based upon the indestructibility of any sim ple entity, has also been resorted to. On this ground Plato held that "the soul was imperishable and immortal." And Kant, the intellectual giant ot modern times, deduced the same re sult from the voice of conscience, which he called the "Practical Rea son." The ethical argument, drawn from the incompleteness and inequal ity and injustice of this stage of be ing, has also been adduced. And even science is not without Its proof. For Professor Talt, in his "Treatise on the Unseen Universe," shows that the modern discovery ot the conservation of force that no particle of force amid all changes is ever lost, indicates the Indissoluble nature of the soul. So the Indestruc tibility of matter and the mystery of sleep, "twin sister of death," bring further corroborative proofs. Such are the reasonings by which men In all ages have sought to frame a theory ot immortality with which to break the lance of the grim tyrant death. Addison has thus strongly and beautifully voiced this sentiment: It miiKt be o; Plato, thou reasonmt well: Ele whence this pleanlng hope, this fond denlrv. Thla InnainK after Immortality? Or whence thla aecret dread and Inward hurror Of falliriK Into naught? Why ihrinka the aoul Back on herself and atartlea at dent ruc tion? 'Tin the divinity that stirs within un; Tla heaven ttaelf that polnta out an hereafter And Intimate eternity to man. Yet what are theories, speculations and philosophies when confronted with the remorseless logic of facts? So, with all their arguments, a tone of Inconsolable lament and subdued despair characterizes the writings of the ancients. "Happier never to have been born," sings 8ophoclei, "than sq, soon to pass through the hapless gates of Hades." And Haeckel'a "Sleep of the Soul," Huxley's '"End less Sleep" and Hume's "Leap Into the Dark" show the same doubt and scepticism among modern secular phi losophers. And this, then; is the uniqueness tad the glory of the Easter message. It meets fact with fact. It proclaims with a trumpet that rends the uni versal air: "Christ has risen! The Son of God has burst the bars of the grave! The king of terrors is die crowned! Jesus hath abolished death and brought life and immortality t6 light!" This all men feel to be the most blessed and significant fact of history. It is the cornerstone or Christianity. Well may Renan admit that this Easter message has revo lutionized the world. Naturally and rightfully, thinking men everywhere rose up and questioned its credibility. But Christ would have risen in vain had not the resurrection been satis factorily attested. And so the Church formulated the evidence, and little by little the world came to accept the Easter miracle as an indisputable his torical fact. And then the nightmare of ages lifted, The Sun of Immortal' ity rose to the zenith. A great in- spiration uplifted humanity. The floodgates of history were reversed Religion was transfused with hope and gladness. Literature took on sun nler moods. Art bloomed with love Her forms. Cemeteries lost their hor ror and became peaceful couches where the loved pilgrims slept the "sleep beautiful," to be wakened by the joyful trump of endless life. The race had undergone a new creation. The resurrection of Jesus is thus a demonstration of immortality. And of our personal Immortality. For, as He was made man for us, so we tri- ft 1 I V i '-'ft THE CROSS." RUBENS. umph over death in Him, our repre sentative. And so is it a demonstra tion of our personal resurrection. Im mortality and Resurrection were ever such twin truths heralded as these? And not without a divine in spiration has the blessed Eastertide been fixed by the Church at the sea son when the earth shakes off her winter's sleep; when the birds come back and the flowers begin to bloom; when every seed that falls into the ground and dies, and rises again with a new body, Is a witness to us of the resurrection of Christ, and a witness to us of the resurrection of Christ, and a witness to us that some day life shall conquer death, light conquei darkness and Joy conquer grief In that realm of immortal being where "there shall be no more death, neither sor row, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away" (Rev. xxl., 4). Fortified, then, with this assuring Easter faith, let us, when our sum mons comes to quit 'these mortal shores, make response with the tran quil mind of the Christian poet Ten nyson: Sunaet and evening atari And one clear call for me. And may there be no moaning of tha bar When I put out to sea; For though from out our bourne of time and place The flood may bear me far. I hope to aee my Pilot face to facs When I have crossed the bar. v An Easter Novelty. A novelty in ceramics for the com ing Easter is a small porcelain tile with an appropriate verse of a poem or a quotation from Scripture, done In fancy lettering and bordered with flowers. A beautiful tile of this kind, just designed by a local artist, shows the first verse of an Easter hymn done In gilt lettering, and rising up be tween the letters slender green stems which carry at the top, as a kind of border, full blown Iris flowers.
