the preference for visiting a batiste

An observing glove manufacturer on his
way to fulfill his religious duties on Sun

Idleness Undesirable
The desire of financial independence
among women irrespective of class or con

womenfour times as large says a prom

looks forward to the time when nobody
will have t work more than an hour a day

cursory study of Dr Watts well known
lines concerning satan and idle hands would
show to Mr George or anybody else that
human beings cannot as constituted

mortal coil endure a ii fe of idleness such
as this One can but shudder at the thought
of the condition of the world were but an
hours work per day exacted of every man
Yet there are many thousands of women
who do scarcely more than this Minds i
once keen and intelligent become dull
under such inactivity Muscles lose their
tension even bones weaken Above all
the will that originator energy becomes
impaired Idleness saps every faculty that

Man men object to have their wives do
anything for money but this foolish pre
judice is gradually wearing away A
woman with a taste for art literature or
business can only be happy while exercis
ing that taste To enter any of the pur
x suits without pay would be worse than
foolish Women who are rearing little
ones belong at home but when their children
dren become of an age t admit of placing
them in school for a large part of the day
then if a woman can manage it let her
enter whatever work her tastes and capa
city fit her for A reasonable man will
only rejoice when he sees his wife happily
and usefully employed He will know that

I Individuality of Children
What more can I give my children than
I a giving tnem asked an anxious
young mother of a matron who had success
fully rearea a large family I think my
dear they would be b enefitted by a little
wholesome neglect was the reply I
was the result of keen observation and
a recognition of the fact that the children
in question were kept in a continual state
of worry by being watched The mothers
eye and care were so omnipresent that
their spontaneity was checked and as one
remarked dont life for them was one eternal
Said another in recalling reminiscences
of childhood When I was a child I was
rendered miserable by being constantly
watched and trained I was very fond of
being alone at times I could give no rea
son for it but I loved t stay in unoccupied
rooms or find a hiding place among the
bushes in the among
garden there to amuss my
self with my own plays and fancies My
mother was suspictous that this meant evil
of some kind and constant surveillance
and reprimand for going off by myself is
one of the unpleasant memories of my
Nothing should be more carefully re
spected and guarded than the individuality
of a chd The atmosphere of home should
be that of love and safety in which all the
natural inclinations of children should tte
allowed to act spontaneously The wishes
for employments and possessions of their
own should be respected their tastes in
matters of food and dress consulted so far
as is consistent with tLe convenience of
those around We have heard of grown
up people telling of the distress they had
when children to certain kinds of food
which they were rvminelled to eat or cer
tin kinds of clothes welch they were com
pelled to wear It used to be a rule in many
larnilies brought up in Puritan style that
a child must eat all the crusts of his bread
or all the fat on his meat or all the food
on his plate Such rules are barbarous
and we trust nearly obsolete yet child
rens taste in food ought to be more con
sideredathan it is Food tnatis distasteful
should never be forced upon them and to
procure for them food which they enjoy
will in most cases be to procure such food 1
as their system requires So of taste in 3
dress Children will sometimes have an
antipathy to particular colors particular
garments and a preference for others I
possible these tables should be always re
spected guarding Sf course against en
couraging or fostering vanity
So of tie occupations and employments 3
of children as tar as possible they should L
be left to follow their own inclinations
when harmless I your little girl would L
rather play with hammer and tacks than
with her dolls why let her have them and
see that she his a board or a box or a
place where she can drive them without re
proof I your little boy always wants to
hitch the chairs up for horses and can
enjoy himself happily as an imaginary
stage driver why set apart certain chairs
for him and let him drive unmolested and I
unwatched I he begs for tools let him 1
have them i he want pencils or paints
procure them for him The only way by
which parents can secure the confidence of
their children is first to show confidence I
in them Confidence
Confdence must be won it can
never be forced not even from the little I
ones who play around our knees ltte
Ahappy childhood is thegreatest heritage
parents can give to their children Its
memory will brighten and cheer the whole
of life To happy it must to a certain
extent be unrestrained The home play
ground must have no dangerous places
from which children must be forbidden
and guarded And in the
garded shelter of the
home and the
playground let the young
spirits develop freely spontaneously hap
nilv Let them have their little secrets
their own possessions that no one snail in
terfere with their own plays and so far
as is consistent with the welfare and com
fort of others their own way Life will
discipline them harshly enough when
parents can no longer shield them from
sorrow Happy the home and happy the
child who can look back and say as does a
beloved English author
Well I have once been happy I have
been a child I have been in heaven I
have stood in the smile and lain in the
arms of one of Gods angels I was the
happy child of a gentle loving mother
Oh that garden of my early home where
I and the flowers grew up together I and
time were playfellows then I feared him

The Monuments of the Past on
I Salisbury Plains
Something of the History of this Peculiar ect
The Significance of the Mistletoe
A Unique Ceremony
No one to whom fortune grants the privi
lege of spending a season in the south of
England as pilgrim roaming student or
tourist in general considers his
ences complete and his reputation as a traveler
veler fully sustained without a personal
inspection of the famous ruins at Stone
These strange monuments of the past are
situated on the great Salisbury plains
within less than ten miles of the historic
town of Salsbury and nearAl ti tn
Sarum the site of an ancient British fort
ress and of a still more ancient hall the
floors of which were trod by hall and
his fierce followers Many great scenes
have been enacted upon that spot There
it was that the Saxon Alfred received rec
ognition of his title as emperor and had his
name enrolled among that small brother
hood of men known as The Great there
too in a latter day the Danes taught humil
ity and submission to the Saxons humi
there William of Normandy extorted from
all the warlike leaders of Britain an oath j
fL allegiAnce to his authority and power I
The massive walls as now standing are
four yards through and if their component
parts were the stones that speak surely
they could tell a story that would cast the
shadows of insignificance upon many of the
wonders of written history
But let this suffice for Sarum it is of
Stoneheage that we propose to speak The
observer of these ancient structures ex
periences other pleasures than that of curi
osity gratified We speak of these ruins in
the plural because of the many separate
monoliths that stand exposed to view
though they were without doubt erected as
gigantic parts of one stupendous whole all
in realization of a single predominant al
Approaching the place from the city one
first observes an upright pillar of stone
sixteen feet in height and of other propor
tions correspondingly massive and nextis
seen a horrizontal block slightly hollowed
on the upper surface this latter is popu
larly called the death stone beca ise of a
belief soon to be mentioned The main
structure consists of two circles of heavy
pillars the outer ring at least a hundred
yards around and
the smaller one near
haJ these dimensions TherA nlp in fl hOn I
jillars many of which are now prostrate
The stones are not of uniform size but all
are massive many of them weighing from
twentyfive to thirty tons apiece On the
tops of the uprights passing from one to
another blocks are laid so as to form when
all was complete two uninterrupted circles
of stone Within these enclosures an altar
and accessories are found
We can but theorize why shall we not
not use the proper term and say we can
but guess as to the origin and purpose of
this strange edifice Its appearance is sug
gestive of an ancient temple perhaps dedi
cated to the rites of some form of Pagan
worship By visiting other parts of Eng
land and certain portions of France and of 3
Germany we conclude that Stonehenge is 3
not entirely a unique occurrence though it
i s undoubtedly the chief of its kind for in
the regions named similar though smaller
ruins abound smaler
Historians generally believe these to
have been the temples of the Druidsa
class of priests frequently mentioned
cass prest frequenty by
the early writers but whose nature is en
veloped in clouds of mystery Caesar in
the sixth book of his Gallic war states that
in ancient Gaul the order of the Druids
ranked in dignity and pover next the mon
arch These priests were not only the re
ligious teachers of the people but likewise
the makers and expounders of the law and I
their decisions were final For disrespect
to their judgments they had the power to
inflict heavy penalties among which ostra
cism or even perpetual banishment from
society was common
The road to this station of dicnity and L
power was not an easy one to travel
twenty years of arduous labor being de
manded as a training The novices received
all their instruction orally from priests of
long standing and the branches studied in
cluded astrology mythology some natural
science and theology Among the Druids
there were three classes
or ranks the
bards the Yates or junior prophets and the
priests proper and all were presided over
hy the Arch Druid whose authority in tem
poral matters as supreme
ThEre is uncertainty as to the derivation
and meaning of the word Druid oae ex
planation which was accepted as long ago
as the days of Pliny the elder is that it
sprang from the Greek drusan oak so
applied because of the veneration in which
that tree was held by the priests It is
known that the Druids loved to spend their
time in oak forests because of the peaceful
influence there to be found Everything
pertaining to the tree was considered by
them sacred but especially was this true
of the mistletoe a parasitic evergreen fre
quently found upon the stems of apple and
other fruit trees and rarely on the oak It
was only when growing upon the king of
of the forest however that the mistletoe I
possessed any special jigniiicancc to these I
worsnipers but when so found it was
I called by them all heall and was consid
ered to be imbued with great medicinal
virtues In such cases it was cut from the
tree with a golden blade and was caught as
it fell in a waite clotti held below the soy
ering was performed with great ceremony
by a whiterobed priest a pair of white
bulls being sacrificed on the spot
They had among teem a most incredible
story concerning the anuineum or ser
pents egg which the priest constantly
wore suspended by a stringaoout the neck
This egg they claimed was no cornm jn pro
duction of the reptiles body but was
thiown from the frothy emanations of ser
pents mouths when
several of them were
entangled tot e her in deadly combat and
it wag of efficacy only to the priest who
succeeded in uatchiiis it before it touched
tUe ground
I is certain that animal sacrifices formed
an important part oJ the Druids rites and
that upon special occasions human beings
met their fate upon the sacredaltars In
consequence of this one of the blocks at
Stonehenge has been named the death
stone as already stated The main altar
situated within the inner court of this vast
temple was so placed that at the moment of
sunrise on the morning of the summer sl
stice the shadow of the chief pllar fell
across the centre and this was one of the
times at which a human heart was torn
from the living body and held aloft as a
propitiation to the sun
The Romans soon after their invasion of
Britain showed their disgust for these 3
practices which they did not hesitate to 3
declare barbaious During their supre t
lUC in the island Druidism was greatly
curtailed in fact its observances were
practically prohibited except upon the isle
of Mona now called Anglesca Finally
Suetonius Polinius determined to storm
and demolish this last stronghold of the
order Tacitus has left us a vigorous de
scription of the impassioned manner in L
which the illfated priests assembled be
fore the Roman leeions as they landed
utt nug imprecations over cpeir nuaus
terrible that the valiant warriors were for
a time completely awed Druidesses for
women were admitted to certain degrees of
the pi iestly power ran among the combat
ants bearing consecrated torches and pro
nouncing incantations and curses on the
invading hosts The Romans soon re
covered from their temporary consterna
tion and eagerly prosecuted the work of
massacre throwing the bodies of priests
and priestesses alike into the flames of the
holy altars The oak groves upon Mona
were cut down and all prominent signs
of the order obliterated
This may bo regarded as the end of
Druidism in Britain its decline in Gaul
and Germany dates from about the same
time and Stonehenge and shrines of the
kind have since been unused in any kind
u I
of religious ritescmere monuments i are
they now to the mon1uent gone
tie Stonetiengehoweveivpbssesaes a
speciil interest because of
enacted there some time after the Romans
had withdrawn from Britain The Saxon 1
warriors Hengist and Horsa were in
duced Tjy Vortigern the British king to aid
him in subduing the Picts and Scot who I
then were invading the land The Saxons
asked in payment for thei services only
as much of British land
as an
oxhide would enclose and this very
request being agreed to
Vortigern then cut a large hide into narrow
strips and thus enclosed a vast tract
Hengist was not satisfied with certain
satsfed wih re
sults of the enterprise and he determined L
t be revenged He invited
300 of the I
British leaders to a feast prepared for
them at Stonehenge and set each of the
guests between two Saxons at the meal
Meade au intoxicating liquor of the meal
was served to the Britons in abundance
and at an
a signal was
given and every Saxon seized his weapons
and slew the drunken Briton by his side
Some few writers profess a partial belief
that Stonehenge was erected in commemo
ration of this successful slaughter
but such is unfounded The style
is not Saxon The place bears
all evidences of Druidicai origin
There is much to be wondered at in the
achievements of thee ancient votaries to
an unknown God Their mechanical skill
was surprising It is puzzling to know how
they transported and erected these vast
masses of rockto do it nnur H 1
modern devices for the task would be UW conS u
sidered a feat
Druidism is now no more no longer do
the strange sounds attending this order of
worship resound through the groves of the
eastern world no longer can be heard the
shriek of the sacrificial victim
sacrifcial whose heart
is torn away while still heat
whie with
lfe presented as a ghastly greeting to
the sun that geetng
emblem and embodiment of
light and life So in the march of time
does the God of heaven bring to an end the
practice of such unhallowed rites and
cause the influences of peace to ittend the
devotions of the soul J E TALMAOE
Experiences of a Reporter Who Wanted
to Investigate Things
A dinner two miles under ground i
something of a novelty to the average
man A Times reporter tried it recently
and found that the experience was both
curious and enjoyable after a fashion
rie was bound to see John
Bal a
worker in the New Detmole mine and
it was just noon when he reached the
entrance to the shaft The cars had
stopped running and the steaming horses
stood by the entrance greedily
entce geediy munching
their oats John Ball would not be out
until night He worked two miles in
sideso there was
nothing for the
porter to do but to put on the weighers 3
cap kindly offered to him and take in
his hand a little oil lamp
The reporter started at a brisk walk
and the mouth soon dwindled to a very
email patch of light His footsteps pro er
duced a very lonesome echo
and the
shadow danced in queer unsightly shape I
along the floor and sides
fle foor of the corridor
His eyes at last grew accustomed to the
darkness and down the side passages he
caught glimpses of lamps on the heads
of men who had stopped working and
were eating dinner
At last the visitor
came upon some
I miners in the branch heading They
directed him how to turn by the marks
on the props and fifteen minutes walk
through a tunnel about eight feet high
and as many wide brought him to a new
heading where seated on a huge block
of coal in front of a solid wallxif black
diamond sat John Ball quietly eating
his dinner His lamp rested on the
block of coal and though the reflection
fell full upon him he was so black from
bead to foot as to be almost indistin
guishable from his surroundings It was
the day after Thanksgiving and his
bucket was running over with the relics
of the feast oi the day before The miner
insisted on sharing i his supply iwith the
reporter and soon both were engrossed j
in the same occupation The reporter
was soon convinced of one thing dining
in a coil mine is a success thiig
The tourist will never forget his ride
out on the rear of a loaded coal car
Reaching the main corridor hiscar was
coupled to others from other headings
and with three men at the breaks our
train was sent spinning down the incline
To keep his balance on a sharp turn and
dodge the ceiling when it came down
very low occupied all his attention and
energy On the train rushed past head
ings minors and horses until way over
the top of the wriggling hue of cars the I
reporter saw daylight gleam like an elec
tric flash The brakes were put hard
down and the wheels stopped but such
was the momentum that on the train
slid as over a
surface for half
< gieased r
mile and at last it shot out into the
broad daylight just as the night shift
was coming to work I was rapid
transit such as makes ones hair stand
as erect as a pine forestNew York
Englands Big Guns
The great game of gunnery brag is
over and the authorities have thrown up
the The Victorias
Victoras guns are so
defective that even the British admiralty
dare not send out the ship to carry the
tag h of the conunandermcliief on the
Mediterranean station One of the 11C
ten guns is bent between the trunnions
and the muzzle more than two and a
half inches out of the straight line and
the worst part of the business is that the
Victoria and her sister ship the Sanspa
r oil will probably be hors de combat for
a very long time as there is no prospect
of these monster 110 ton guns being of
any use and it will be a big job to alter I
the turrets to suitsina11er
turets sufswalcr and more ser
viceable weapons
The Camperdown which has been se
lecied l to take the place of the Victoria
vxs supplied fort le maneuvers with
three out of four guns which were de
fectivo The inner tubes split during
the test but the authorities decided to
admit it At the
conclusion of thp ma
neuvers these three guns were ordered
to be returned Woolwich and Admiral
Rodney was requisitioned for three
others to make the Camperdown fit for
spa We now have of first class battle
ships ready for sea in all other respects

the boat I was on a
We left Cincinnati three hours ahead
of the Diana with a general cargo John
promised to join me inHelena and bring

the air was thick with steam there was
a deafening crash and I knew the boiler

Yes sir she answered She

something else but I was going so fast I
did not catch it When I struck ground
I learned that the Diana had exploded
her h boilers three hours after our explo
sion that Morrell and his bride were
standing on the boiler elect at the time
of the explosion They were ready to go
ashore but went up instead
About three years after that I was sit
ting in the office of the Palace hotel at
San Francisco I picked up a Honolulu
paper and nearly dropped dead when I
read this paragraph
