EASY TO OVERCOME WORRY
Simple Mental Treatment to Do Away
With Evil Habit.
Being human, happily or unhappily,
we cannot deny the comfort to be
found in the reflection that misery
never lacks the company It loves. We
all have our troubles, and some of us
derive much satisfaction from the con
templation of them. Indeed, there are
those who are happy only when
wretched; but these we believe to be
as few in number as they are disa
greeable in association; tho vast ma
jority of humans are norma), and dis
posed. therefore, in conformity with
natural law. to smile when the skies
are clear and to grieve under the po*-
tont of cloud*. Hence the case with
which worry tskes possession of the
mind, colors the disposition and makes
a cripp’.e of eflort. That causes abound
we know urd must admit, as we do
aiinort unconsciously the certainty
of death; but too little cognisance is
taken of the fact that the effect of
mere apprehension, which is all that
worry really Is, may be subjected to
simple mental treatment and be over
come.—George Harvey in the Nort
HAD TO LIFT UP HIS VOICE.
Worshiper Furnished Good Reason for
The successful merchant Invited his
parents to visit, him in New York city.
They came gladly, and on the follow
ing sabbath were escorted to a fash
ionable church in Fifth avenue. Some
of the hymns were familiar. In their
rendition the visiting pair contributed
heavily, with the credit for volume
in favor of the father. Although not
always in correct time, and some
times in discord, yet the joy of this
good couple leaped forth in joyous
praise, and they did not see the glow
ering looks of nearby worshipers or
the beet-like face of their devoted son.
‘Father,” explained the merchant that
afternoon, while his mother was tak
ing her accustomed nap, “in our
churches the congregation do very lit
tle singing; It is left entirely to the
choir.” “I know, my boy,” said the
old man as he lovingly placed a hand
on his son's shoulder, “that It was
very embarrassing to you this morn
ing, but If I hadn’t sung as loudly as
I did, the people would have heard
Bootblacks in Livery.
There is a new office building In
Wall street that is piling luxury on
luxury In the way of fittings and gen
eral accessories to the point where it
bids fair to be a close rival to the mar
ble and plush palaces of hotels up
town. The latest outbreak In this
direction is the uniforming of the
official bootblack of the building In a
page's livery, blue trousers with a
Told piping on the seams, a page's
<hort tunic with ever so many round
;llt buttons down the front and a
lark blue straight visored cap with
he name of the company that owns
the structure In gold letters on the
rront. Of course, this bootblack

tremely hot and uncomfortable In his
What the Foolish Wife Does.
It Is astonishing how many women
allow the smallest tribes to break up
the harmony of a home. A wife sep
arated from her husband recently,
after 20 years of happy married life,
merely because he refused to give up
smoking. He had enjoyed his pipe In
peace all these years, but she took an
unreasonable wifely whim against the
weed. And now comes the Austrian
archduke who threw away a large for
tune and the chances of a throne to
marry a wife for love. And she spoils
the whole romance and happiness of
both, and brings a beautiful love story
to the divorce court because she in
sists that her husband shall lead the
"simple life,” including a dress of
sacking, and vow never to shave or cut
his hair. —Chicago Journal.
The Essence of Dullness.
Zt Is true, no doubt, that many learn
ed people are dull; but there Is no In
dication whatever that they are dull
because they are learned True dull
ness is seldom acquired; It is a natur
al grace, the manifestations of which,
however modified by education, re
main in substance the same. Fill a
dull man to the brim with knowledge,
and he will not become less dull, as
the enthusiasts for education vainly
imagine: but neither will he become
duller. He will remain in essence what
he always has been and always must
have been. But whereas hls dullness
would, If left to Itself, have been
merely vacuous, It may have become,
under careful cultivation, pretentious
