CASTORIA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Hate Always Bought Sears the TEACH CHILDREN RIGHT WAY Education That Teaches Them Merely to Avoid Wrong Cannot Be Called Sufficient. The average man is naturally pessl mistic, or inclined that way, and is apt to spend more time and effort find ing fault with things as they are, and trying to tear them down, than to cor recting them, or substituting better This comes from, or is largely due to, the prevailing habit of teaching children and young people to avoid do ing wrong rather than teaching them to do right. In this way they become so Impressed with the immensity of wrong and the littleness of right that they grow up with a feeling that wrong has gotten the better of right. The natural conclusion must then be things. that we are going to the everlasting bow-wows, and the very best we can do is to put the brakes on and go as slowly as possible. And yet every one of us ought to know, and should realize, that the way to get rid of wrong is to substitute right, for wrong disappears before right as darkness before light, or cold before heat. Where wrong Is, right Is not; and where right Is, wrong cannot come. Right can never become wrong, no more than love can become hate.— Erasmus Wilson, in the Pittsburgh Ga zette-Times. WOODS THAT ARE DURABLE Above All, the Cypress Is Coming Into General Use for Purposes of Interior Decoration. Wood, its uses and, above all, its prices, are matters of moment to ev eryone who contemplates building, re modeling or adding to a house. There a-e some southern pines that are - comparatively reasonable and which give good results. Houses built of them In Virginia and the Carolinas attest to their durability. It is suit able for interior finish, as it has a va riety of grains and takes on a good finish, whether In soft stain or hard enamel paint. Cypress is being used for many pur poses. The great swamps of the South are yielding up their forests and the lumber Is finding its way into the northern markets, strong a wood as some others, but it has good lasting qualities and is equal ly good for exterior and interior fin ish. It is very satisfactory finished in its natural color. A wood that is finding much favor for interior finish Is the red gum, also from the South. It may be had highly figured or plain, quarter-sawed or plain sawed, and it takes a very fine finish. The red gum is finished in its natural tones or stained to Imitate mahogany and sometimes brown walnut. This is not as is "By All Means!"

I am partial to picnics—the spread ing of the cloth in the woods or beside a stream—although I am not avid for sandwiches unless hunger press me. Rather, let there be a skillet in the company and let a fire be started. Nor need a picnic consume the day. In summer it requires but the late after noon, with such borrowing of the night as is necessary for the Journey home, You leave the street car, clanking with your bundles like an itinerant tinman, You follow a stream, which on these lower stretches, it is sad to say, is al ready infected with the vices of the city. Like many a countryman wlu> has come to town, it has fallen to dis sipation. It shows the marks of the bottle. Further up, its course is clear er. You cross it in the mud. Was it not Christian who fell into the bog be cause of the burden on his back? Then you climb a villainously long hill and pop out upon an open platform above the city. The height commands a prospect to the west. Below is the smoke of a thou sand suppers. Up from the city there comes tlie hum of life, now somewhat fallen with the traffic of the day—as though nature already practiced the tune for sending later her cçeatures off to sleep. You light a fire. The baskets disgorge their secrets. Ants and other leviathans think evidently that a cir cus has come or that bears are in the town. The chops and bacon achieve their appointed destiny. You throw the last bone across your shoulder. It slips and rattles to the river. The sun sets. Night like an ancient dame puts on her jewels.—Charles S. Brooks, in Yale Review. NEW ANESTHETIC OF VALUE Substitute for Ether That Greatly Fa cilitates Necessary Operation on Cats and Dogs. If some cats and dogs were not dumb they would undoubtedly get up a testimonial to Dr. George W. Little to express their gratitude to him for Introducing a substitute for ether—a substitute which enables them to with stand operations that are particular ly hazardous when performed under ether. Although because of lack of imagina tion animals do not suffer mentally as do humans when facing an operation, it is impossible to perform a serious operation with the aid of a local an esthetic. Doctor Little has succeeded by adapting to his uses the gas an esthetic used by dental surgeons, says the Popular Science Monthly. The machine jjvhich Doctor Little J ploys in his work in the Animal hos pital in New York city, conducted by the American Society for the Preven- 5 tion of Cruelty to Animals, consists j of two cylinders, one containing ni- ; trous oxide and the other oxygen. The i cylinders are connected with two bags by tubes. One bag is filled with the th4 other with the oxygen. -The em gas, outlet of each bag passes into one tube connected with the mouthpiece that is attached to the patient's nose, proportions of the gas employed may be regulated by valves. The The Cormorant. Milton mentioned the cormorant in his poetical works and compared the bird to Satan. The cormorant has a habit, after diving, of perching oa a tree or rock with outstretched wings as though It were hanging itself out to dry. It will remain motionless in this attitude for a long time. Cormorant fishing is carried on by certain classes of the Japanese at night, and in their boats they carry braziers with flaming wood fires to attract the fish. It has been written that the imperial household depart ment of Japan, in' order to protect and aid this old practice of fishing, pays a small yearly pension to the professional fishers and allows them free access to certain forests that they may have wood to feed the fishing fires in the braziers.
