I'lia following cxplnnntion could | be given by ell newspaper* asii oc- I curs every now and then, says an exchange; j ‘This week we looked in a neigh boring exchange, expecting to see an account of bow a young man ! Had gone wrong as il bad appeared in the daily papers- Not a line 1 about the young man could wo find, ami we knew why at once. A 1 heart-broken wife or relative had gone to the editor and asked him to “say nothing” and the editor had listened, and the tears had won n promise from him. We have gone through the same our selves dozens of times. An editor is onlv human. He Ims his likes i and his dislikes; he loves and he [hates; liis strength between love | and duty is just like that of Hie average citizen. We remember one rase in particular. We had let a certain case go by uumentioned be cause a tearful mother, bowed down with her cross, had come to : us to beg a favor. A big headed j man jumped us about it and called |us a coward for so doing. A short j time afterwards the shadow fell j across his threahold, and he < amo running ami begged us to to ’.say nothing.’ ‘Yes’ we reply, ‘but don’t you remember how you call ed us a coward for keeping still! ‘I know.’ he answered, ’but I was wrong. If is dfferont now.’ And we listened even to him. There are things that an editor cannot suppress. There are other things that ho can target with propriety.! As far as we are concerned we would rather lessen the grief of a parent than to throw out a morsel for the, vulgar, gossiping public to feed upon. We would rather wipe away the tears from Hie eyes of a mother than to have nerve enough to join a heartless crowd of lying longues, sink the iron deeper in Hie tender soil So when in this I'ftper we failed to find what, we wanted, we made no comment. Hut deep down in our heart we ad mire the editor and liked him bet ter becausc.he had a heart that was tender, and would rather listen to jibes of the unfeeling public than to the sobs of n heart broken moth er or wife.” Appraackiag Nuptials.

How often do wc hear some well meaning person remark that the Christmas gift should he useful. A practical idea, without question, hut this is an editorial about the Christinas gifts that are of the (in scd, and if you please, the foolish sort. Are we not practical so many, many days in (he year? Is not there a place in (lie world of now for the pretty things—the little vanities, and the things not alto gether useful? Wo are thinking of a practical husband who bought his wife a practical gift. Their few years of married life had been spent in pov erty. She had tried so hard on the days before Christmas to make the occasion happy for the ehil (Iron. The husband came home late on Christmas evening, and without ceremony, bluntly tossed a carelessly wrapped brown package into Ins tired wife’s lap. Unwarp- I'ing it, the little woman found that it was a mneh-he-patterned, blue calico cloth for a kitchen dress. It was a trial for the worn-out woman. Ihe gift was so sugges tive; it was so practical -the very thing for her drudging life. She was a sensible woman; she loved her husband and her home, hut just at that time—at Christ mas—she would have preferred some little inex pensive, foolish trifle, and they could have laughed over it. ami talked of the old days, and in the dreams and plans of better days, spent such a happy hour. Rich people so often make the mistake of sending their less for tunate relatives practical presents that an; so paintnlly suggestive. It lakes tact to make a Christman gift. Too often Christ mas giving is tragic, So many things are sent because someone sent one the year oe fore. True Christmas giving is an art, and the present that isn’t at all useful or practical has it* place. If yon know a woman's heart, you will know that. For we are just children, after qll—children grown up—and our hearts, attuning themselves to Ihe sweetness of the season, are too sensitive at Christmas time. Hou’t criticise the gift that is not painfully practical. Heavy. impure Wood makes muddy, pimply complexion, head fti'hes. nausea. indigestion.
