ELDER for Women West Main Street Drug Store The Pioneers. BY BKBTON B HALEY. They're not the plotters and schemers, who work for glory and pay but the ''utterly foolish dreamers," who dream of a belter day. Their courage is undi minished by waiting and failure, loo, for after their work is finished the beautiful dream come true! They're the fighters who fight un daunted for the " utterly hopeless " caused; ridiculed, jeered and taunted, with never a lull or a pause, but after they've fought and perished, and after their work is done, the cause they have loved and cherished is lifted to fame and won! They know the hope and the yearning; the sling of the blind world's scorn but never the sunsnine burning the skies of their vis ion ed morn. They're the warriors, true and splendid, the fond and faithful few whose battlesand works are ended or ever the dream comes trne! Guarding Against Croup.

It is sweet on a summer's morning when the air is aquiver with the love songs oi the birds and fragrant with the odor of roses blown, to hear the music of the church going bells, an invitation to the world-wearied to enter God's tem ple and find peace, because the instinct of i worship is inthe heart of man and the church is the temple of the living God. I go to church because I find there. that peace which De Quincy described as a resting from human labors, a Sab bath of re pose, a respite granted from the secret burdens of the heart, as if I stood at a distance and aloof from the uproar of life; as if the tumult and fever of slrife were suspended; as if there brood ed over me a dove-like and halcyon calm I go to church because of the music that I hear there, the mighty roll of the great organ, mingled with the marvelous ymphonies of that divine stringed in strument, the human voice, untwisting all the chains that tie the hidden soul of harmony. I go to churdh because I delight to hear the teachings of the preacher, whose soul is dedicated to God; whose field is as wide as God's universe; whose theme is the destiny of man, and whose words are the oracles oi rate, marvelous is the spell of the preacher to whom God has given genius and consecration and the powet of illustration drawn from the old, sacred, immortal Book, and from the miracles of nature, no less revealed in the crimson-tipped flower turned up by the plowshare of Robert Burns upon the soil of Ayr than in the long reaches of the star girt skies. I go to church because "the way is dark and I am far from home," and be cause the church is the polar star to light my pathway in the rayless night. I go to church because the church min isters not only to the spiritual but to the material needs of life, and because it is there that the charties that soothe and heal and bless are scattered at the feet of man like flowert. I tro to church because in that atmos phere vice and crime mither and die I go to church because I her the teach ings of the philosophy of Jesus, the in comparable man; and if you sav His teaching is philosophy and not religion. and that He was a man and not a god. then the philosophy ot that man has re deemed the world from savagery and blessed mankind with Christian civiliza lion, and, to my mind, it is a thing worth while to hear. I go to chureh because there I find consolation and hope; because I see there the dawn and not the sunset; and it is better for man, if the hope is baseless and the vision but an elusive phantom, to cherish a dream, so glorious and beau tiful than to be weighted down and crusheh with the quarried mountains of the world without hope and without God;. lion.

"It keeps up my spirits thro the ordeal and it makes ths people who wait upon me more interested and kind." "I think that it t only human nature that it should make them so. I'm sure I'd rather wait on a woman who looks well and was in good spirits than on an ill-dressed woman with a bored or ez hausted air. "Shop clerks have to watt upon to many dreary women, 1 am sorry for them and never add myself to the list. "It should be fair play on each side of the counter. The woman behind the counter is criticised if she is not trim and nicely dressed, with a bright, inter ested manner and a cheery readines to help you out of you difficulties. "Why shouldn't she have the right to expect brightness and cherriness from you? "I find that treating shopping the way I do, it does not tire me as it used to be fore I came to my present stand as to the way it should bo done. "I often wish that I could take snap shots of the faces of women shopping not only of the faces, but of their gen general appearance, and a dreary col lection of people these pictures would make women carelessly dressed, with faces lined with worry, fatigue, or the sharp, set look of bargain-seekers.", N.
