'Boys and Sleep.
Oue tiling a growing boy wants to bo
long on is sleep, and yet he is most api
to be careless about It. It is during
sleep tint a boy grows most and
catches u>. During hist waking hours
he tears down and burns up more tis
sue than he builds. Good, sound and
sufficient sleep is esseitial to growth,
strength and endurance;. A boy scout
should have at least nine or ten hours
of sleep out of every twenty-four. If
you lose out on tLIH amount on one
Cli.y make it up the next. Whenever
unusually tired or when you feel out of
trim stay in bed a few' hours more it
it is possible. A boy should wake up
Mich morning feeling like a fighting
cock. When be doesn’t he ought get
b bed earlier that night. Sleep Is u
I wonderful restorative and tonic. It
helps to store up energy and conserve
: strength.—“ Boy Scouts of America.”
EASTER DAY.
Beautiful Weather Full of Sunshine,
Fills the Churches With
People.
Sever in the history of our city has
there been an Ejister day that was
more bea.utiful or more joyoust than
on Sunday. Not a cloud was to be
seen in the sky during the entire day
and the atmosphere was tempered
with the gentle zephyrs of spring. It
is seldom that Easter day is not sel
ected by the weather man, on which
to show the general public what he
can do, to give us a mixture of snew,
rain, wind and freezing temperature.
Last year the day came earlier in the
season and one was hardly able to go
out of doors without being well pro
tected by a fur coat and ear mufflers.
The day was observed by all of the
churches and there were special ser
vices and music and tiie
flowers, flowering plants, palms and
ferns in every place of worship were
beautiful to behold. In many'of the
churches substantial additions were
made to memberships, and the offer
ings were such as to bring joy to every
church organization.

Judge A. H. Reid entertained many
of his gentlemen friends at a dinner
at his new home on Franklin street,
last Saturday evening at 6:30 o’clock.
Guests were sealed to the number of
thirty-six about tete-a-tete tables ar
ranged in the living room. At each
plate was a yellow jonquil and the
tables were centered with lighted
candles, in ornamental holders with
shades of yellow. When cigars were
reached, the host rose and explained
tliac lie had not thus gotten his
friends together wholly for his own
pleasure but that there were two of
those present who were about to de
part on long journeys—they were go
ing to travel in. foreign countries and
needed the advice and comforting
words of old-time friends, they were
Messrs. B. Heinemann and W. H.
Bissell. Then there were two others,
Charles Gilbert who had just returned
from Europe and Walter Alexander
who had returned home from an ex
tended trip in the South, and these
gentlemen should be welcomed in
such terms as to admit of no question
of our sincere 1 appiness at their re
turn. He had asked several who
were peculiarly gifted in saying
pleasant things and capable of giving
valuable advice to perform this
pleasant task. The following were
in turn called upon : H. G. Flieth, L

with wit and humor and were inter
spersed with songs, suggested by tiie
w'ell know n singers of the Deer Foot
Hunting Lodge, led by such eminent

Walter Alexander and others. Mr.
Bissell and Mr. Heinemann responded
in a happy vein showing that they
were filled with gratification and ap
preciation for the abundance of good
advice so kindly handed out and es
pecially would the kind words uttered
and tiie thoughts of the pleasant
gathering be a comfort and a source
of joy to them during their travels.
The talks were followed by several
solos by A. V. Gearhart, with Miss
Jeannette Reid at the piano. It was

'Jr Manners In Russia.
Mme. Vim-dot, the famous musician
gives oue a poor impression of Rus
sian maimers from the account sht
narrates in her “Memories and Advtn
tures” of a visit to the Crim< a in 188tl
Their “want of logic” amused her.
“It enables them to be scrupulously
el?an in their persons.” she says, “and
yet they are not nice in tueir table
manners. One substitutes his finger
for his fork, another drinks out of the
cream Jug. a third cools his perspiring
brow with the bread knife.
But, if their manners were doubtful
| their music was divine. “The whole
nation is thoroughly musical, down tc

manners, as in other things, fiussia

THE FOG.
The weird fog elf in raises of

Creeps up from the sea at break

Yet the plants and the (lowers

By the stealthily vanishing
