Andrew, of Philadelphia, who ha seen :.',tn ICn.r- with Wl.leb ""t,,H' ,lll,t l'''.v hIcIiiii nay h t "I M"" ,M' have found that persona of clean life, of honorable, upright, religions chunicter, not only do not display an Indifference to the approach of death as those of grosser life do, but welcome It us a relief from care and toil. There Is some thing about the approach of death that reconciles men to It, The senses ore dulled, tltt) perceptive faculties, urn blunted and t he end conies qui et ly, painlessly, like a gentle sleep. In this condition I menu on the ap proach of death those who retain their faculties ,o any degree become more or less philosophers. They know that tlciith Is Inevitable, that It Is only u question of hours, and they accept the verdict without any dem onstration and In a philosophical way. In till my experience I have never round a case in wnicn a (ty ing man or woman complained against the Inevitable, attempted to fight Its approach or even feared it. It Is only In good health that we fear death. When we' have become ill, when we have sustained some Injury of it very serious nature, the fear of death seems to disappear." There was n novel combat the other ditv at. an Illinois high hcIiooI. The ,,, . ladf sophomores The Kilncnletl !! desired to wear uil Her Muscle. t,)U BL,ho(), coorHi and the lady juniors said they shouldn't- there! Whereupon they came to blows-or rather to ' the scratch and strings and but tons Hew. and half came tlowji, 11 nd tender faces were sadly marred, and even delicate shins wire fiercely kicked. Tiny chased one another all over the campus, and only gave up the struggle when exhausted. And the lady sophomores. 11 they pinned them selves up, holly declared that the vic tory was theirs, and the lady Juniors, us liny vusflined their scars, were equally certain that tlx- sophomores hud been Inclorioiisly routed. No wonder, ob-erves the Cleveland Plain Di aler, Unit a timid college professor advised the voting men of his classes o lii'Mitre of the cduculed girl. To the ordinary observer there oes not seem any relationship be tween old iiialds uud canary bird. Put the Philadelphia Record shows that there Is: "The demand for canary turds is regulated oy tne sup ply of old maids," said a Ninth tivet bird dealer recently. "Mien the old maid market I strong we sell lots of canaries, Men bate Yin. I don't Know why they should, but they do. Consequently married wont en seldom Indulge in canaries. Of course there are exceptions, but most of the women who buy birds are old maids. They now seem to fancy the canary even above the cat and the parrot. It used to be that every old maid had cither a cat or n parrot, perhaps both, but now the little yel low fellow hw the call, The more old maids there are, the better it is for the canary market." The following unique letter has been received by the Philadelphia Record: "If my wife writ cn.v stttf to you In regard to a young T.tidie in vtter city do not writ her up in yuer paper us the ladle will bring slander and damages against the Reekerd if you do as there no need of my wife being Hons of that bailie as that young Ladle is all right and n perfect l.udie." A certain married woman who "glories In her sex" confesses that there are t lines l.onalna; fur . . . when she envies ner husband, With s business suit and u dress suit, he says, he is "prepared for any oeca alon.g and to choose such convention al clothing costs him hardly a mo ment's thought; whereas with every changing season she imist complete ly rearrange her wardrobe, not the, gowns alone, but the "gewgaws to inutcli," The older she grows, the woniuii nays, the mora heavily does this burden weigh upon her spirit, Although she Is not a society woman, says Youth's Companion, she meets ninny people; It seems u duty to ar ray herself In the manner that the general judgment of her sex ap proves, and to do this demands time, money and anxious meditation. She admits that she likes to feel well dressed. Yet what a relief It would be, she adds, If, like the sisters be longing to religious orders, women would put on uniforms and make no change except, say, from t hick 'gar merits to thinner! At first thouu,h't this seems a reasonable proposition. It would be so if applied to the other sex; for man already poys nn esthet ic penalty for his efforts to save him self trouble in choosing his clothing, Members of secret societies evade the penalty for on hour or two when they decorate themselves with Hashes and swords ami feathers; but every other assemblage of men Is necessarily a somber and cheerless spectacle. The members of liny melt gathering are clad so uniformly that one might log ically d and they put on uniforms. Iliipidly woman's Instinct penults her to be more original. Probably the only reason why one particular wom an suggests a uniform is that some penurious man has charged thnt she and her sisters sinfully waste their time and money on dress, Hut thnt Is not true of many American women, For one family broken up by the wife's extravagance, a hundred ore ruined by the husband's folly. More over, the woman who takes pallia to show herself ut her best does tl good deed, since she adds just so much more to the charm of life. Runaway marriages are becoming so common thnt It is Interesting to recall a stern parent of Philadelphia who refused to ever again see his only child, a daughter, who had of fended him In this manner. Years passed, and the time came for his death without, having brought to him any softening toward the girl. As he was a man of great wealth, consider able curiosity was felt to know whether slip would be mentioned. In his will or whether In death, an in life, she was disinherited. After many and generous bequests to charity the following clause In the will wu.i read: "1 give, bequeath and devise to my daughter, .lane, the sum of five dol lars, in order that she may purchase some strongly-written tract on filial obedience." I (" Morrlstowu, N. J., has 11 justice the peace who nets promptly mid ener getically, uud has the courage of bis convictions. A w ife complained tohliu that her husband deserted her three years ago, uud that four of her six chil dren had died of starvation mean time, but that she now hud located the husband In Morristown, where he had been living for six mouths with an other woman. The justice hud the litis- Hind arrested, took the keys of his house from hiim put the woman out, mil Installed the wife la the domicile with her two remaining children, tell- .... nir her to use it as if It were her own, mil not to tear, a ne wunui onum :icr. If not legally right, the Justice was morally so, and his action will be generally commended. ITte agricultural department is icndliig to experimental florist a ilaiit that Is a wonderful novelty.

The bankruptcy act forbids prefer ences to creditors, requiring any cred itor who bus been preferred to sur render what ho has received If he pro poses to prove any claims or receive any dividends. Ily the recent decision It Is established that the receipt of money by a creditor within four months of the time when a petition In bankruptcy It filed by or against the person making the payment, consti tutes a preference. Thus, If A sells to 11 a bill of goods amount lug to if-VW, and Is paid In cash, and thereupon sells him another bill ut goods for f 1,0111) on 1)0 days' credit, wllliln which time H goes Into bankruptcy, A becomes a preferred creditor. If he proposes to claim his f 4.0(10, he must give up his $U,000. If he wants to keep his $2,0(10, he must give up his $l,uii(i. The fact that he hud no Intention of obtaining u preference, or that his debtor hud no Intent Ion of giving him one, Is Im material; the luw presumes the Inten tion from the mere fact of payment. It Is suggested that business men should bestir 'themselves to have con gress amend the law so as to lessen, if not completely do nwny with, the se verity of this provision, Of course, rich men have a right to Jo as they please with their money, ind can select their own beneficiaries. Those who contribute to the cause of education do wisely and well, Put would It not be wiser anil better, sug gests the lltitTiilo Times, If some of this vast amount of money were ex pended In establishing kindergarten and playgrounds for the children ol the poor, Instead of lavishing It all upon the "higher education" of the sons of the rich? One of the officials of the Philadel phia mint suys: "There Is always a scarcity of pennies In the west and a superabundance of them In the east Kvery little while the bunks out there set up a hoot and cry for pennies, but our banks here arc ever glad to rid themselves of their surplusage In these coin. It Is difilciilt to see why such a state of things should be." Judge Jciiks, of the New York su preme court, told the law school ol New York university the other day that "the man with furrows in his brow wins ugainst the man with creases in his trousers every time." A niiw woriUneurpuruted lathe Kng lish language, especially in exposition literature, Is "pergola," which I de fined as "an nrbored colonnade, " The small boy's Imagination seems to have been excited by the reports of the magnificence of the Fun-American exposition. Y'onngsters are running away all over the country, and the police In ninny cities have been kept busy looking for juvenile tourists who are needed nt home.
