VOICE AS INDEX OF MIND. How to Get a Mild, Gentle and Sym pathetic Speech. Cultlvnto a mild, gentle nnd sympn thotlc'volce, says Klbort Hubbard In Llpplncott's. And tho wny to sccuro n mild, gen tlo and sympathetic voice Is to bo mild, gentle uml sympathetic. Tho voice- Is tho Index of tho soul. Chlldron do not pay much attontlon to your words they Judge of your In tonts by your voice. Your volco reassures. "My sheep know my volco." Wo Judgo or.o another moro by volco than language, for volco colors speech, and If your volco duos not corroborate your words, doubt will fol low. Wo aro won or repelled by n voice. Your dog doe not oboy your words; ho does, however, read your Intents In your voice. Tho best wny to cultlvato u volco Is not to think about It. Actions become regal only whon they nro unconscious; nnd tho volco that convinces, that holds us captive, that leads and lures us on, Is usod by Its owner unconsciously. Fix your mind on the thought, nnd the voice will follow. If you fear you will not bo understood, you are losing tho thought It Is slipping away from you nnd you nro thinking of tho volco. Then your volco rises to a screech, subsides Into a purr, or bel lows llko tho vagrant winds. Anxiety and Intent uro shown, and your coso Is lost. If you fear you will not bo under stood, you probably will not. If tho volco is allowed to como naturally, cuslly, gently, It will take on every tint and emotion of the mind. And so, to get back to tho plnco of beginning, tho advice Is this; Tho best way to cultlvato tho volco Is not to cultlvato it. The volco Is the sounding-board of tho soul. God made it right. If your soul Is filled with truth, your volco will vlbrntt with lovo, echo with sympathy nuo fill your hearers with tho deslro tc do, to bo and to become. Your deslro will bo theirs, Hy their voices yo shall know thorn Pence bo still! Keel that, and then sny it, nnd your volco shall bo a word of commuud that even tho elo monta will oboy.

Ideal Abiding Place Carries Stamp of Individuality. Tho surest way of making tho homo distinctive Is to. do nil we can our selves, and stamp It with our own Individuality. Never copy othor people's Ideas of comfort and decoration, but employ your own talents nnd cxperlcneo to the best advantage by carrying out original designs nnd schemes. Don't copy; originate.

A pretty "way to finish whito swIss curtnlns for summer uso Is to edgo them down tho fronts and along the bottoms with narrow linen or cotton lnco. It Is not fulled In, but stitched on fiat by machine. Curtnlns of swIss nover should fall below tho window sill, and, when edged with lnco, may havo a hem un Inch or moro wldo on tho fronts nnd bottoms, with tho lace sown to the edge. This finish is far more durable anil neat than ruffling tho material on, and tho expense Is about tho same, since lace mny be bought for from three to five cents a yard. Overdrapcrles of crctonno also may bo finished at tho edges with lace, and this will tend to make them hnng better, as tho stitching nnd extra weight of tho lace mako tho edge firm Brown Sauce.

Tho now Hoard of Trustees of tho Now York Llfo Insurance Company, chosen by tho policyholders under tho Armstrong laws, has taken charge of tho company's affairs and has begun tho work of reorganization. In choosing tho principal officers of tho company, tho Board has adhered to tho Idea that a llfo insurance com pany Bhould be mnnnged by lite In surance men. Tho new president Is Darwin P. KIngsley, a collego bred man of good New England stock, who has been in tho company's service in a variety of capacities for a period of nearly twenty years. In tho parlance of life Insurance, ho "began with tho rato book" and has advanced step by step up to his present position. ' Tho first vlco president of tho com pany Is Thomas A. Uuckner, who has served tho company for moro than a quarter of a century, Indeed baa novcr had any othor business connec tion. Associated with theso mon aro others long trained In the company's service, each an expert In his own de partment of work. Wm. E. Ingorsoll, who hns for many years had charge of tho company's great business In Europe, Is ono of tio second vlco pres idents, and will continue- at the. head of tho company's office In Paris. Ilufus W. Weeks, who has been In tho 'company's servlco for nearly forty years,' ranks next to Mr. Duckncr as vice president, and continuous as chief actuary of tho company. Tho policyholders havo expressed tholr belief In this company In no un certain terms. The upheaval In life In surance within the last two years has resulted In a great deal of misunder standing nnd policyholders, alarmed on matters which woro not very clear to them, havo been disposed to glvo up their contracts at n heavy sacrifice. This has not been true In the New York Llfo to nny great extent. Tho com pauy had $2,000,000,000 lnsurnnco on its books when tho llfo Insurance In vestigation began, nnd while tho laws of the Stato of New York now do not; permit any company to wrlto over JICO.000,000 a -2nr (which is about one-halt the Now York Life formerly did), tho company's outstanding busi ness still exceeds $2,000,000,000. Policyholders genorally will be still further reassured by this action of the Hoard, as It places at tho head of the company to protect their Interests men of thorough training and unexception able character. The Mules Understood. A story Is tod of Senator Knute. Nelson, who spent somo of his early years In a logging camp. He there discovered tho necessity of -certain emphatic language In order to make mules move. "All varieties" of tongues wero In demand in that camp: Scandinavian, German, Italian but nono of thq words used seemed to havo tho explosive force to adjust the tempo of tho mule to thq desired pace. Along camo a strapping Irish man, who used somo popular exple tives, usually Indicated In print by blank, blank, or . The mules moved!

Course of True Love Among the Moon shiners Runs Constant If Not Al ways Smooth Peculiar Customs. Unmarried women nro senrco In tho Virginia mountains. In a summer's sojourn In n mountain country of old Vlrglnln'a touriBt made tho acquaint ance of fully 700 persons, nnd found but one "old maid," and sho wns "talklnV To "talk." in the mountain vernacular, mennB "to pity court or to accept It." Olrls begin to "talk" at 13 oven 12, In localities far removed from tho railroads. The llttlo maid leaves off hor red calico "sleovo apron," tho "bend band" thnt has hold back hor loose hair, puts her hair In a big knob on tho bnck of her head, and lets her dress down nil ndvertlsements of readiness for mnrrlage. When a young man selects n girl to whom to pay court ho will brook no othor youth'B 'talkln'" to her. He may "tnlk" to soveral girls If. ho likes, In Bovernl neighborhoods, but ho glvos himself tho right to quarrel with ono If she "talks" to another thnn him self. Tho chief courting places nro tho log churches, where tho elders sit on tho rough benches Inside and worship and tho young ones sit under the shado of tho trees outside and "tnlk," and tho evening entertainments at the homes "play parties" and "cake cut tings," which last, with their dancing of "Hoston" nnd "Snap," from dusk until dawn. Courtship Is conducted In tho moat open lashlon. Public demonstrations of affection nro not censured. At tho play parties and cako cuttings th lovers pay no attention to nny nn else, sit with arms nbout ench other and exchange kisses and honeyed words. Tho engaged girl Is very open In ex pressing her ownership of a young man. Sho pins n ribbon on her hair and a button picture on tho ribbon, nnd lets It hnng over her forehead Sho "claims" her beau over any other girl; nnd It nt n danco It Is his turn to swing n girl sho doesn't llko sho has been known to seize him bodily and pull him out of the dance. Whon .the wedding day comes, usually after a very short courtship, tno young couple slip off at night, and call It "running away," even though thoy have tholr parents' consent. Real runaways aro but few. Tho'usuul obstacle In tho course of truo lovo Is tho enmity of tho mother of "tho other girl." Ono mother bo comes so angered becauso a young man quits "talkln"' to her daughter to talk to a moro attractlvo girl that sho threatens to roveal tho "moon shine" business of tho youth's family to tho "revenuers," n proceeding sho knows would ruin tho family. Tho mountain folk seldom remain single after widowing. As long ns a man Is not confined to his chair by old ago ho considers himself "plenty young enough to marry." Nor does ho wait vory long nftor tho denth of his wlfo to find nnother. If Mnrthy dies In April Dick Is "talkln"' by July and married by September, and when Marthy's funeral Is preached In Oc tober Loulsy, her successor, prepares tho big dinner for tho funeral guests. Love marriages are the rulo In tho mountains, but tho marrlago of con venience is not unknown, particularly In the second mnrrlage. An aged widower wife-seeker hires a woman to keep house and do his cooking for n few months. "I'll try her, nnd ef she is of any uccount to work I'll marry her," ho announces to his friends, "and ef sho hain't, I won't." Rchoboth Sunday Herald. Bernhardt' Admission. A nowspaper writer was praising Mine. Bernhardt. "She has n great deal of tact and flnesso," ho snld. "Whon, In nn Inter view, you broach a subject she dislikes she doesn't come right out and say so, but sho mnkes you such puzzling, enig matic answers thnt, perforce, you shift to another topic. "I onco wont to get n vory Intlmnto Intorvlow with thu famous lady.
