Children of Criminal.. It Is a curious fact?one all at vari ance with the doctrines of heredity, hut borne out by police records?that the children of crooks, of ail classes, rarely turn out to be crooks them selves. Deeper study of the subject might reveal that they are possessed of the criminal Instincts, but that the tragically close example of the punish ment and wretchedness that attend a criminal career has been a terrifying deterrent. The fact, at any rate, re mains. The rogues' galleries of Scot land Yard. New York and Chicago may be studied in vain for the photo graphs of a father and a son.?Argo naut. He Did Hi.

JJ The best way to manage a wife is to keep yourself always her lover. The best biography?the life that writes charity in the largest letters. Children need love, tenderness and sympathy as much as flowers need air and sunshine. Gather a wreath from the garden bowers and tell the wish of thy heart in flowers. The wife is superior to the hus band in as many ways as the hus band is superior to the wife. It is not well to forget that. The essential elements of true hos pitality are: a sound, simple, every day life, with no shame to hide and no pretenses to keep up. That which makes hospitality a burden and not a deliglit is a foolish vanity which wishes to appear better than it has to divide. Don't say that it doesn't matter how you look around the house, for it does matter a good deal. It mat ters for the general credit of the es tablishment, of which the feminine bead is the creditable or questiona ble representative: it matters in its example to the children and to the help; it matters to the husband and father, who usually, if he is half a man, feels a sense of pride in the ap pearance of his family. It is poor encouragement to him to find con fusion and carelessness in dress and waste and destruction running riot about his dwelling. It is one of the important duties of every woman to keep herself and her house in as goodjeondition as |>ossibIc, consider ing her circumstances. Sympathy, happiness and cheerful ness are more than acts, f.hev are part'of the individual life. When the high heavens can be mirrored in a drop of dew, why not the smallest deep of life mirror the whole spirit of Christianity? Sometimes a person's tongue gets them into trouble. Watch the ton gue, itjbelongi to you, and it is the only'one for which you are res]>on sible. Your neighbor's tongue may need care also, but that is his busi ness. Watch your tongue; it needs watching. It is a fire?watch it. It is the helm which guides the vessel. Let the helmsman keep wide awake. It can bless or it can curse; it can poison or heal; it can pierce hearts and blight hopes: it can sow discord and separate chiet friends. Watch your tongue, no one but you can take care of that tongue. Your neighbors may wish they could brin dle it, but they can't do it. Do not?mother at your house work, father in your study?do not be always "too busy." The little heart wants an outlet, the^ upraised bud wants a kiss, the little hearts have something to tell you, a little grief to bring, a small joy, a game of play ex[>ected now and then. Ah, bewareThose requirements will slacken and will cease, if it be too often. Now run away, dear, father is busy. "Don't be troublesome, dear.Jmother must do her work." Of course there must be checks sometimes; of course over-indulgence is the worst kindness. But be not, as a rule, repliant, unsympathetic; they will go elsewhere, after a while, with their little confidences, their little wants, their little losses, their little griefs and jovs, their little win ning ways, with the refreshment of their pure, dclighttul beings. Her hajis you will be sorry then?then, when the mischief is done?sorry when the toy is no longer, as a mat ter of course, brought first to the "father" to see; when the toddling feet seek elsewhere but t.> mother for drying of tears, when the patter of unste:idy feet always |?sscs your door. Ah, you will be sorry then that you were so foolish, sorry that you scared the birds away. He always attracted attention as he inarched up the main aisle of the church with his sleek silk hat on bis lleft hand, his hair fruitlessly comb ed, his face as smooth as a billiard j ball and his clothes as faultlessly as just from a tailor shop,.* hen services were concluded, and he was pwsinjj into the Sunday school room, an old lady asked him for the health of his wife. Oh she is not very well. The fact was the poor woman had built the fires, prepared breakfast, i brushed his clothes, combed his hair,' and was left at home to wash the dishes, to do housework and prepare that man's dinner, but "was not well. He was a conscientious man. that. - A daughtkr** part at home. One of the sweetest things a girl can do is to receive friends gracious ly, particularly at home. In one's own house a cordial manner is pecul i "r'-v Do not stand off in the middle of the room and bow coldlv r?id formally to the friend who has ; called. Walk over to meet her, give her your uand and say pleasantly that you are very glad to see her again. Stiff", cold and formal ways of meeting acquaintances are not i proper in welcoming guests to her father s house. A daughter's part ; is to assist her mother on every so cial occasion. The girl pours the tea I in her mother's drawing-room when friends drop in at five o'clock. Quite often, when no maid is present, she helps the guests to sandwiches and j "'kes which are served at 5 o'clock tea, and herself hands the cups and tikes thein from the guests who would like to be relieved. A|w?rt from and more important even than her manner to a guest who happens in for an hour or a day, is the manner of a daughter to* her father and mother. The father re turns to his home after a weary day at business. He is tired in body and mind. Coming back, as his latch key turns in the home door, he throws off care; he is joyous at the thoughts of the dear ones he will meet after hours of absence. His young daughter, in a pretty gown, with the bloom and freshness only girlhood weirs, should be ready, to give him the attention he loves?the kiss, the cheery word?to help her mother and the rest in letting her j fathcr see how much he is loved at home. Men give up a great deal for 'heir families?their time, their i strength, the knowledge they have I gained in life's experiences?they spend everything freely f?r their home's sake, and the home should pay its debt in much outspoken love. Man is naturally a home-loving animal. Ij? fact most animals arc ? home-loving. And when a man asks " Womf,n t(> ^re his life, it is usu ally taken as a gentle hint that he wants her to take hold and take a sort j of general oversight of his affairs and a Social oversight of himself. He likes to know that she docs things fer him just for the reason that she loves him, and is interested in him and his well-being. He loves his home more if there is some impress of her personality ujwn it. He likes best the meal she pre|?res for him. 01 course, he says very little per haps nothing-?f all this, being , man. In too many families the mother assumes the, care of everything and i her daughters are but genteel loung ers in the household. The work which could be so easily and quickly j done if each bore a share, is left for j the hands already weakened by heavy burdens, and when at last the poor I household drudge dies at her post, | she is remembered with pity not un mixed with contempt because she resigned the post of ruler of the household to l>ecome its slave, and her daughters are left to ruin other homes with idleness and ignorance WEST VIRGINIA ??>.-?'-'? v ? i^<;. v.;?*vv; -v / - ? _, | HOME-COMING WEEK $ Celebration of the 1st Battle ot the Revolution THE BATTLE of POINT PLEASANT OCTOBER 10,1774 a I Unveiling of the Monument and Memorial Service Entertainment for the people.

HUNTERS MOST ANSWER MANY QUEST IONS. When one goes to the coontjr clerk's office to take out a license to hunt in this state under the new West Virginia law he is required to go through an examination almost as thorough as the Bertillion system of measurement used for the keeping cf the record on criminals. While the clerk does not come from behind the desk to go through the actual work of examination, the applicant is ; sworn, and he is put through a long . list of questions. He is required to give his name, place of residence, oc cupation, height, weight, color ofhis ; eves, color of his hair, and his com ! plexion. ; An applicant should know the ex ; act distance from the top of his head to the ground, as if he makes a wide guess he may be caught nap ping by the clerk, who has measured off the wall and marked it on the op posite side from his desk. Oftentimes the applicants are asked to step back and stand close to the wall, when the clerk looks at his marks to de I termine the man's exact height. ' Licenses are issued for the period of one year, and residents p*y $1, ; 75 cents of which is for the license and a quarter goes in fees. A non 1 resident must pay $15.50, 50 cents | of which is for fees. So far there has i not been one license issued in Mason 1 county to non-residents, and there 1 have not been numerous applicants among residents. The blank appli ' cation, which is filled out by the ans wers of the applicant to the ques | tions in the examination, is kept on file in the clerk's office. This aids 1 the farmer or other person in secur I ing the name of a hunter by giving : his description at the office of the i clerk. THE REUNION SEASON.

Well may thev count their blessings, giving thanks to a Divine l'rovidence which has ordered their day of usefulness. May the family reunion never die. SALESMEN WANTED.
