It is highly recommended by the clergy, who. find that they can drink freely of grape juice just before ascending the pulpit without affecting the length or lucidity of their discourse. Grape juice is made ehiclly in west ern New York, where the Concord grape rears its shy head every fall and runs into the early frost with open arms. licenses are inadequate and in C.rape culture is one of the most trcoressives and women. The New York Times, alter an ex haustive study and investigation of the recent election, reaencs uie concmum that two classes of voters, and two only, accomplished the result. They were not the lennan-Americans, the labor vote, or any of the groups stand ing for spr.-ial interests. They were the Piogresshe and the women.

We can see no reason why any couple cannot wait five days after the ap plication for a marriage license before one is to be granted. It certainly would not wrong any young people seeking a legitimate marriage in a re soectable wav. It would prevent the officers and clergymen of Vermont from making a t rathe of marriage as lias been done in the town of Bellows Falls. I here have been .5. marriages since the first of January, and about 700 of them have been couples from outside Ver mont. Of course some of these may have been the marriage of respectable young people, but it is no credit to the state that it has allowed the greater majority of these unions to be made within its borders. The news story concerning this mat ter states that the local Catholic priest in Bellows Kalis refused to perform any marriages unless the young peo ple had the consent in writing of their parish priest. This Bellows Falls priest lias set an example that ministers of other denominations might follow with great credit to themselves. We hope that traflic in marriages will be stopped by the next legislature. exciting pastimes known to the Ameri can people, as it is subject to frost at both ends of the route and is also liable to be drowned or dried out before reach ing its destination. Grape juice is consumed with great eagerness by advocates of temperance, for whose benefit all of the alcohol is extracted before the process of bot tling. William Jennings Bryan has de clared that he would rather have one good swig of grape juice than run for president while Roger Sullivan and Champ Clark are alive, and he rarely mounts the Chautauqua platform with out fortifying himself with a pint or two of this peerless beverage. In this respect Mr. Bryan outers (pate mate rially from a number of platform stars whose fortifications consist largely of foam and pretzels. The grape juice industry has been a priceless boon to the newspapers and magazines, as it is advertised in sever al colors by the half page. In view of tins tact, it would seem that more grape juice would be consumed by the average printer, and no doubt this would be the case if every printer were not a teetotaler. Grape juice is about the only cold drink on sale that can be kept in the cellar without calling fojth the un godly jibes of the neighbors, and on that account its use should be encouraged.

Milly used to enjoy Playing with her Paper Dolls more than anything else. "And she would Tlay the most mar velous Games with them. One would give a Reception and the others would wear their best ClotWs and come. Then if it was a hot day Milly would 'pre tend' that they were going Swimming and dress them in their Bathing Suits. On the cold days she would wrap them up in their Winter Furs. "Now one day when she had had three of her Dolls a Year she thought she would give them a Birthday Party. She dressed them up in their best Clothes and made them stand in a row along the Wall of her Nursery. "Then she decorated the Corner of the Room where they were with Paper Flowers. She had some Red and Pink and Lavender Flowers and they looked quite funny all arranged together! She also had long Chains of Taper Carna tions. After she had arranged the Flowers she got out a small Table and several little Chairs. She had a nice set of Pink and White China Dishes and Pink and White Paper Napkins.

"And Milly told them to come in one hour. In just that time they arrived and brought with them their Boxes of Paper Dolls. " 'Come right along,' said Milly. 'The Dolls are waiting for their Party in the Nursery. " 'We have brought them Presents,' said llilly's little Friends. 'Our Dolls are giving them Birthday Gifts of new Paper Shawls and Hats which we have made. "Of course Milly was delighted, but the greatest Surprise of all was when! they entered the door of the Nursery. "There around the Neck of each Pa per Doll was a Pink piece of Crinkly Paper which reached out to the little Table. In the center of this was a Pink and White Birthday Cake, with three Candles one for each Paper Doll ! '"Oh Mother!' shouted Milly, 'what a gorgeous Surprise!' "'Wait until you see what's in the Cake,' said her Mother. "They had their Cocoa and Bread and Butter first, and then another Sur prise followed for they had Ice Cream with the Birthday Cake. "There was a great deal of excite ment over the Presents in the Birthday Cake. For Milly and her three Friends there were little Silver Chains with Lockets, and for the Paper Dolls there were little Silver Baskets they could wear on a string over their Arms for Shopping ! "And after the Birthday Supper Party was over, Milly and her Friends played with their Paper Dolls, dress ing and undressing them, until very late.
