THE BEAUTIFUL HAND. A Decision Thnt MI001I (hp Trot fit All Time. Tli ore was n dlipute nmang three ladles as to which bail the most, beau tiful hand. . Oue sat by a stream ami dipped her hand Into the water and held It up. another plucked strawber ries until the ends of her tinners were pink and nnnlber gathered violets until her hands were fragrant. An old. hag gard woman, passing by, nkod, "Who will give mo a gift, for I am oorV' All three denied her. but another who nut near, unwashed In the stream, un stained with fruit. uiiHilorued with tlovtvrs, gave her n little gift and satis fied the poor woman, and then she nsk- cl them what was the dispute, nnd they told her nnd lifted up before her their lieHUtlf-il linmK "Heautlful In deed," said ht when she saw thorn, but when tboy asked hor which was the mot beautiful she said, "It Is not the band wlili-h Is washed clean In the brook. It Is noi tho band that Is tipped with red. It Is not the hand that Is gar landed with fragrant flowers, but the hand that gives to the poor Is the most beautiful." As hhu suld these words her wrinkles lied, her stuff was thrown away and she tdood before them an angel from heaven, with authority to decide the question In illxputc, and that decision bus stood the test of all time. STATE LOTTERIES. Tliry Wrrr Onr Very Common nnd Wry Popular In II u rope. Lotteries wete common In ancient Home, and during the middle ages lot teries were utilized by the Italluu mer chants fur the disposal of their goods. Some of the Italian states then adopted the lottery as a melius of raising revo uiic, and the Institution of state lot teries afterward became, very com mon and very popular throughout Eu rope. The earliest English state lottery of which there Is any record was In 15W), when 40,000 chances were sold at II) shillings each, the drawing taking place In the west door of St. Paul's cathedral. Tho prizes consisted of articles of plate, nud the profits were employed for tho repair of certain harbors. Early In the reign of Queen Anno private lot teries' were supprevsed "as public nui sances," but government lotteries, how ever, were still maintained, and from 1700 to 18'-M consldcrnblu sums were annually raised in lotteries authorized by nets of parliament. Tlie average yearly profit to the gov ernment from 170U to 1821 wns over 11 10,000. On the ground of Injury to public morals lotteries of nil kinds were nbolished In England In 18-0.

Self con sciousness Is a disease with many matter what they do, they can nev er get away from themselves. They become warped upon tho subject of self analysis, wondering how thoy look, how they appear, what others will thluk of them nnd how they can enhance their own Interests. In other words, every thought and every effort seetus to focus upon self; nothing radi ates from them. No one can grow while his thoughts are self centered. The sympathies of tin? limn who thinks only of himself are soon dried up. Self consciousness acts as a paralysis to all expansion, strangles enlargement, kills aspiration, cripples executive ability. The mind which accomplishes tilings looks out, not In; It Is focused upon Its object, not upon lljelf. The Immortal acts hnve been uncon sciously performed. The greatest pray ers have been the silent longings, the secret yearnings of the heurt, not those which have been .delivered facing n critical audience. The dally desire Is the perpetual prayer, the prayer that Is heard nud answered. Success. What ! IIII111I Srr, "I can always tell when people are looking at me," wild a blind man. "In deed, nearly all blind persons can toll when people are looking nt them. I have nlwnys about me a soft golden glow of light. When proplo whom I like come Into my presence this glow becomes paler, lovelier. When those I dislike are about tin glow Is darkened and besmirched, I can tell what kind of characters people have by lliu touch of their hands. There Is Individuality In the touch. A man's touch bhows mo whether he Is alert or sluggish, cold or passionate, kind or cruel." Nlonr In tin llrnrt, A Greek woman employed In the American hospital In Cnesarea, Turkey, was stirred by a revival. She straight way asked leave to visit a woman whom she hud injured nnd to whom she hod not spoken for ten years. Wheu sho trudged through the snow three or four miles to ask her "enemy's" for giveness her relatives were sure she had gono daft, but the next day, when sho came back to the hospital, she said, "We made peace, nnd tho stone In my heart Is gone," Not Ho It rami rer fit I n JIoM fllrle.

Origin of the Mnt'liilyrm 11 ml the lllociily U11111I I.t-Kf-nil. My father, says a writer In Black wood's Magazine, had no end of anec dotes about our ancestors, parts of which I remember, though I was only a schoolroom child of under fourteen when I beard him relating them. I was, however, old enough to feel keen ly Interested In them. One story that Impressed 1110 very much was related to account for the origin of the Clan Maclntyre. A party of Macdonells on one occasion were out In a bout when a knot of wood sprung out, causing ti serious leak, whereupon one of the par ty stuck in Ills linger to llll tho hole and then cut It off with his dirk, thus saving tho life of the whole party. From this circumstance his descend ants wore called the Matlutyres, or sons of the carpenter. Another story which I heard my fa ther tell relates to tho bloody hand which appears in our coat or arms. A doubt having arisen as to which of two brothers 11 certain estate belonged. It was agreed that ho whose ilesh 11ml blood should llrst touch tho property was to be regarded as the rightful own er. Accordingly the two young men started in two boats for the laud In question. One of them, seeing that he was losing the race, when near the shore pulbsl out his dirk, cut off his baud and -.iircw it on land, thus estab lishing his right to the property, as his ilesh and blood had touched it llrst. Donl keep your eyes on tho awi you havo just heard gomcming bad about. It lb more Important that you keep them on your mouth. $25 Reward For Negro.
