It is an indisputable fact that you
should use pure, clean and polite
language in all your domestic conversa
tion. No one thing can do more toward
securing due respect for yourself and
for others in the home circle than this.
Any kind of vulgar phrases or street
slang allowed to enter the society of
children or tho pivclncts of homo,
dogrados tho whole In tho same propor
tion. In a very intense sense language
shapes character and life, and makos
destiny. Home habits cling to you and
shape your conduct and manner in
society, in spite of all efforts to prevent
thom. Therefore, you should guard
well your language at homo, lest it
betray you abroad. Notwithstanding
the above facts, parents often times are
very caroloss alxmt tho conversation
being indulged In before tholr children.
Stories are told and language used by
the parents in the home circlo that

Whatever may be the cause, there
are few of us who do not know by
experionce what it is to be depressed.
The cause of this unhappy frame of
mind if they can be discovered and
removed, may afterward, as far as
possible, be avoided. In any case we
must always be concorned as to ways of
behaving ourselves when the mood is on
us. Some people find relief In Infecting
those around them with the malady,
and when the infection takes, recover
rapidly from their trouble. Some find
solitude a cure, and shut themselves
away alone till the paroxysm is over.
Some plunge into work, and forgot
themselves in the rush of business.
Some soar away, with the help of the
philosopher, the litterateur, or the poet,
Into regions of perennial light and
beauty. Some find relief in visiting
and comforting those less favored than
themselves. Steady occupation is as
good a preventive of unaccountable
depression as wo know of. A great
many people are unhappy because they
have not enough to do, and that in such
a world as this, where there are so many
books to read, so many solenoes to

to feed. Work is a panacea for a great

every man Is a politician to some extent
and is proud of the influence he wellds,
or thinks he is weildlng in shaping the

Impulse rather than from judgment,and
while another large class of professional
politicians is always in the thickest of
the political fray, anxious to win simply
for the loaves and fishes, regardless of
the principles involved or the methods
employed, yet it is doubtless true that
the men who really shape the course
and outline the principles of parties are
honest in their efforts to promote the

themselves to the American voter

entitled "The Grange in Politics," says:
"This year, 1892, tho Grongo colubrates

existence of more than a quarter of a
century; with its achievements in tho
Intorests of agriculture known of all
men; with its members governors of
states, in Congress in Legislature,
filling high positions of trust all up and
down the land; with its more than
twenty-seven thousand charters issued
to organizations formed in every state
and territory, and Its great membership
of tho very best farmers, their wives
and children, holding hundreds of
thousands of meetings every year; with
every plank in its platform thoroughly
tried and proven it can no longer bo
said that it is an experiment, or an
untried theory. It has been weighed
In the balance and never found wanting
whon Its principles have been properly
applied. It is a bright and living fact,
one of the permanent institutions of our
country, as permanent as are our
churches or our schools."

We find in the table at the Raniesseuni
distinct references to the bull, the Hot
and the scorpion, and it is also clearl)
indicated that at that time the stai
Sirius rose beliacally at the beginning
of the rise of the Nile.
The word haliacally requires a little
explanation. The ancients, who had nc
telescopes and had to use their horizor.
as the only scientific instrument whict
they possessed, were very careful in deter
mining the various conditions in whicb
a star could rise. For instance, if a stai
were rising at the same time as the sue
was rising, it was said to rise cosmically.
bnt unless certain vary obvious precau
tions were taken the rising star would
not be seen in consequence of the pres
ence of daylight. It is quite clear thai
if we observe a star rising in the dawn
it will get more and more difficult tc
observe the nearer the time of sunrise ii
Therefore, what the ancients did wai
to determine a time before sunrise in th
early dawn at which the star could be
very obviously and clearly seen to rise.
The term "heliacal rising" was coined tc
represent a star rising visibly in the
dawn, therefore, before the sun. Gen
erally throughout Egypt the sun wit
supposed to be something like tea de
grees below the h orison when a star wai
stated to rise beliacally. Nineteenth
A Quarter's Worth.
Not long ago I was in a New York
tore buying sloth for a new cloak
when a tall and elegantly dressed lady
entered and asked to see some cloakings.
She told the clerk shs wished to match
a eloak and had no sample, but sh
thought she'd know the stuff when shi
saw it. That poor clerk pulled down
roll upon roll of goods for her inspec

"How much a yard is thatT she In
quired. "Five dollars, madam," he replied.
"Very well; I don't wish much just
enough to finish a cuff on my cloak.
Let me see five dollars I think a quar
ter's worth will be plenty."
Tbe clerk fumbled in his pocket a mo
ment, produced a quarter, put it on the
cloth and cut out exactly the size of thu
quarter, and before the astonished wom
an could say a word be put her quurtor
with the piece of cloth and sent it to the
desk. She waited for the basket to re
turn and then quickly left the store.

There is hardly a large establishment
of any kind, whether it be a newspaper
office, a manufactory or a trade estab
lishment, that has not applications con
stantly from young men who want
something to do. It is often painful to
see the hopeless look upon the appli
cants' faces as they turn away disap
pointed, and the scene becomes tht
more painful whea it is reflected that
many of them doubtless have capacity
for remunerative work, and would
faithfully attend to it if they had tht

greatest singers, the greatest painters,
the greatest writers have had to con
vince the world that it had need ef them
before it was willing to give them
subsistence. So true is this that it
might almost be laid down as an axiom
of succesi that it is only to be won by s
hard struggle. It takes the attrition ol
poverty to bring out what is brightest
in a man. It may be a hardship, but it
seems to be a law of the social economy,
and being a law it must have justict
and compensation in it somewhere.
The question of " getting a position'
resolves itself into two grand essentiali
first, proficiency of some sort, which
stands for dollars and cents in th
world's market place, and, next, tact tt
demonstrate this proficiency in a way t
attract the world's attention.
It is a mistake to depend on "in

the domain of politics. As a rule, too,
it Is a mistake te ask or to expect em

that charity and business are incom

a frank address and neatness of appear

While it is good to have a due appro
ciation of one's abilities, it is not good
to be too exacting as to the field foi
their display. The distance between
the foot of a ladder and the top is but
short span to him who has within him
self the power of rising.
The writer heard of a young man who.
being in needy circumstances, went
bravely to work at the first thing at

The contractor took a fancy to him

It is another requisite of the success

It is not true that the world is a bettei

difficulty is that brain matter, vaatevei

writing with headwork of every hind.
Suitability is the qaality that fives it pe

If en and omen who, with certain
brilliant qualities, fail to realise thii
truth often fancy that the conditions

theatrical managers, snagaaine pub

The demand for Roquefort cheese has
become so great that trickery now plays
a part in tbe ripening process. The
peasants have learned that "time is
money," and they have found that bread
crumbs mixed with the curd cause those
green streaks of moldiness which de
note that the cheese is fit for the mar
ket, to appear much more readily than
was formerly the case, when it was left
to do the best it could for itself with
the aid of a subterranean atmosphere.
This is not exactly cheating; it is com
mercial enterprise, the result of com
petition and other circumstances too
strong for poor human nature. In
eheesemaking breadcrumbs are found
to be a cheap substitute for time, and it
is said that those who have taken to beer
