For many weeks there has been dis
cussed in the columns of the New York
World the matter of the appropriate ages
of men and women contemplating matri
mony, or rather the difference in years
that should exist between husband and
wife. Of course the opinons are as
diverse as the years, and when the ver
dict of the jury is rendered as to the best
written letter on the subject the condition
of humanity will remain as it has since
the time of Adain and Eve. In other
words, talk as we may, argue as we
please, we do not alter that law' of the
universe which makes men fall in love
with women and women fall in love with
men without regard ofttimes to age or any
other condition. Even if a matrimonial
commission was established, with abso
lute power, in all probability there would
result no greater happiness than now
obtains in the world. We all have our
theories, our pet projects for the improve
ment of humanity, but it is doubtful if
any one of these would really add to the
advancement of the race. Men and
women will continue as long.as the years
endure to fall in love without rhyme or
reason and to marry each other regard
less of any rules that common sense sug
gests. The question now being discussed
in the New' York World is whether tl
lliusband should be five or ten years older
than the wife, and hundreds of letters
have been written in favor of one or the
other. While there are fewer mistakes
more grievous than that of a man marry
ing a woman older than himself (and
each one of us can recall fatal blunders
of this kind), still a few of the happiest
marriages of this generation have been
of this incongruous nature. Of course,
these rare instances came about because
of remarkable mental aflinity and an
inexplicable magnetism one possessed foe
the other. So no unchangeable, unchang
ing rule can be made to regulate the
affections or the actions of our fellow
creatures. Love is the one subtle, in
describable sentiment, a magnetism, if
you please, that pays little attention to
years or conditions. Perhaps this Is a
pity, perhaps it is not. Who can decide
this matter?

Yesterday was essentially a home day
in Birmingham. With a few exceptions,
the entertainments were confined to rani
ilv gatherings. Every one seemed happy
and content, and the churches were well
attended. Th“ Roman Catholic churches
were handsomely decorated, and the con
gregations were unusually large. The
music was fine In all the churches. At
the Advent Prof. Boyce and the full vest
ed choir rendered a beautiful musical
programme. This elegant church was
! beautifully decorated with holly, mistle
toe and smllax. Rev. Dr. Board preached
a brief hut forceful sermon upon the
incarnation of Christ and the dangerous
tendency toward unbelief in the divinity
of our Lord. At St.-Mary s-on-the-High
lands the decorations were elaborate and
in exquisite taste. Cedar, holly and
wild smilax predominated. Ropes of
evergreens reached from the center chan
delier to the comers of the church, and
from the arch of the chancel to the low-ei<
walls. Wild smllax etched graceful de
signs against the window's and w'alls,
find the vases on the altar held splendid
white roses. Over the altar burned the
Star and all the altar decorations were
in white cloth, beautifully embroidered.
Rev. Mr. Fitzslmons preached an ex
ceedingly eloquent sermon, taking for
his sub.lect the "Song of the Angels.”
The music was very fine, wdth Prof.
Guekenherger at the organ. The Te
Deum by the quartette, Miss Bridew-eli,
Mrs Guekenherger and Messrs. Gillies
and' Smith, and the offertory hy Mrs.
Guekenherger were splendidly rendered.
The beautiful decorations of the church
were under the direction and manage
ment of Mrs. Sterling Lanier and the
altar guild.

The latest wrinkle in the shoe line In
this part of the country is going to be
worked by Drennen & Co., the mammoth
general merchants of this city, who do a
big business with the country and labor
trade. They have ordered from the J. B.
Lewis company of Boston a large con
signment of shoes. Each shoe will be
numbered and with each shoe, corre
spondingly numbered, goes an accident
insurance policy of $100. The customer
pays $3 for a pair of shoes and gets with
It this policy, which guarantees him $100
Indemnity If he gets hurt within three
months after the purchase of the shoes,
which are guaranteed to last that time,
so that two birds are killed with one
stone—the purchaser Is liable to be out
of shoes and Insurance policy about the
same time and thus desire the renewal
of both. The Insurance policies are Is
sued by an insurance company, with
whom the J. B. Lewis company has a
contract to that end, and will be directly
responsible for loss on the same. Dren
nen & Co. say they are going to adver
tise the scheme very extensively, and
hope, for the furtherance of trade, that
the first man to buy a pair of shoes will
got hurt, so as to receive the $100 on the
Insurance policy and help the project.
It is decidedly the most novel scheme
ever introduced in this city, although
Birmingham 1h by no means behind the
world in such matters, and bids fair to
fill the mines, furnaces and farms in Jef
ferson county with the $3 shoe of the
J. B. Lewis company.

S Private Diseases.
Private Medical Dispensary
Steiner Bank Building, Corner First Avenue and Twenty

The Oldest, Best Equipped and Most Successful in the South.
Office Hours—8:30 a. m. to 12 m , 1:30 to 5:30 p, m*
A Specialist treats only a special or particular class of diseases. I have the distinction
of being the only physician In the South controlling sufficient practice In Private Dis
eases to devote my whole time to their cure.
This daily contact for year after year with suoh troubles gives experience. Experience
is essential to success.
My Medical Dispensary was established In the city of Birmingham August 8, 1887, for
the exclusive cure of Private Diseases. Privacy is one of its special features. It Is so
arranged that one patient never necessarily sees another. Peoplo who have social rela
tions to sustain appreciate this. The very best of people are often unfortunate and
dislike to consult their family physicians through feelings of delicacy. To them I
offer a safe, sure cure and perfect privacy.
SYPHILIS—Many physicians claim that this disease cannot be cured—that Is, en
tirely eradicated from the system. I am willing to contract with any responsible person

I have received many complimentary notices from various papers, and I have had a
few of them printed In my advertisements, but wishing to exclude everything that might
