Did you ever notice that "talk" doeen't Hurt a man much? Perfection tw'( looked for is man, and when some om trie to Injure a tuaa by rantlug about a few faults ho has, the absent one, who is probably attending to h's own affairs is elevated in the heurtr's estimation while the informant is low ered accordingly. If a man knocks along doing fairly well, people realize that while he has some faults, he has some virtues, and they are charitable enough to overlook these faults. But it is different with a girl or woman. No matter how good and pure n woman may be, let some one start an infamous He about her, and every one is willing to pass it along and there is always someone to believe it.

An aged woman was supposed to be on her deathbed. Her life had been one of particular usefulness in many directions she had worked hard, age had come upon her, and she felt her service was past, and that there was nothing more for her to do, so she be gan to regulate her affairs and prepare for the end. As she lay on what she thought was to be her deathbed, her son come Into the room. The feeble woman raised her eyes ami looked upon him as she murmered, "My dear boy, my time has come," "Why do you think so, mother?" he Inquired. "Be cause thero is nothing more for me to do," she wearily exclaimed. "Oh, yes, there is mother, something more for you to do, some one wants your help. An aged Jew was here yesterday, beg ing for your assistance. He is in want; can you not help him?" On hearing this the apparently dying woman ex claimed, "I shall help him, I shall help him, send for him Immediately." When the oldjnan came, she arose from her bed to minister to his wants. She now felt that her usefulness was not past; she willed to do more, so the vigor of life returned to her limbs and she lived eight years longer to help all who came to her door for material as sistance or helpful advice. The Chris tian Herald. Why Do You Worry. "Why do I worry? Because I cannot help it. You would worry if you were in my place." How many times has this little conversation been repented, one friend chiding another for the puckered brow and frowning look, the mood of depression and the anxious, wearied, care-worn slump of mind and body together, incidental to a habit of worry. True, it is easy to say to one who is overborne by the burdens she is overborne by the burdens she is bear ing, that worry will make her load no lighter. She knows this, yet while she concedes that worry is doing no good, she goes on as if she were climbing a hill and slipping back at every step or groping tHrough a thick fog, unable to tree herself from the smothering clutch of this fiend. Three-fourths of the women patients in a certain insane asy lum were said to have reached their morbid estate and the loss of menta balance through the influence of worry. Worry is really waste. It wastes ner vous tissue, is the enemy of happiness, and a prolific cauje and aggravation of ill health. The Christian Herald. Building Pretty Home.
