Somo of these trade pins aro worn more

but altogether their sale is decreasing,
while the sale of society pins is increasing
more and mere men preferring the society
to the trade pin.
Of emblem pins in general far more thai

by tho members of various military, benev
olent, veteran, trade and social organiza

Salntlnc tho Flag;.
Coffee ls now served out, and for 15
minutes the sailors sit and sip it before be
ginning the morning work of scrubbing
decks and cleaning ship. This work
should be finished by five minutes to 8,
when tho bugle sounds the first call for [
colors, upon which the quartermaster
bends on. the flag to the halyards of tho
flagstaff at the stern, and a signal boy does
the samo with the "jack" at the bow, and
both stand ready to hoist them at 8 o'clock.
A little period of waiting follows, and then
8 o'clock is reported by an orderly to the
officer of the dock, who sends the orderly
to report It to the captain. Presently the
orderly returns and reports:
"The captairasnys, 'Make it,' sir."
Thereupon the officer of the deck orders: j
Then ring out the clear, majestic notes
of the saluto to the flag, whilo all men
about the deck face it as it soars with dig
nity aloft and floats out to the morning
breeze, officers and men touching their
caps in reverential salute as it comos to
rest and the music dies away In long, full
notes.—Lieutenant John M. Ellicctt iv St,
The Decline of tho "Dot."
Among the many changes which have
taken place within tho last ten years in
the manners and customs of tho French
nono is moro striking than the gradual de
cay of tho institution known as the dot. ;
From statistics recently published it ap- I
pears that the dowries now given by
French parents on the marriage cf their
children are becoming more slender.
French parents arc beginning to adopt our
system of giving children away in mar
riage freely without haggling over fluau
cial considerations.—Westminster Gazette.
