Jtidgo Walpolo, of Indianapolis, Ind.,
rendered a division on a case tried
before him of an election bet as follows:
"An election Is not a gnme of chance,
and a man who lonen an election bet
must pay."
IIo who anplres to do anything well
should look upon nothing with greater
suspicion than upon that which he
seems to have done easily. It is true
that easy doing comes of hard practice,
but that samo hard practice is really
the preliminary part of the doing. Yet
even then the attainment of a measure
of ease oupht to be the signal to move
on toward that which is less easy.
If you want to know people, you must
get near them; first got down to their
level, and then bring them up to yours,
not waiting for any great occasion, or a
more, direct revelation, but taking
advantage of small opportunities, and
making your Influence felt in quiet,
unobstructlve ways. There Is always
some one to smile at, somebody to give
your chair to, somebody to whom a
book, a flowor or even an old paper
will make it possible that in need these
friends will give you opportunities to
help them which, unless you had shown
thoughtfulness and regard for them
they could never have done. A quiet,
sympathetic look or smile many a time
unbars a heart that noeds the help you
can give Josephine Pollard.
Those in the world who, it is said
"have a chance" are genorally those
who improve what chances thoy have,
and by small steps rise to high places.
"To him that hath shall be given, but
from him that hath not shall bo taken
away even that he hath." Those who,
instead of lackadaisically hanging their
hands and the corners of their mouths
and lamenting that thoy have "no
chance in life," go vigorously and
resolutely to work improving the
chances they have, by and by come out
on table-lands where wide horizons
spread around them. The great world
may know little of them, hut they bear
within themselves the proud conscious
ness of the victor, and load a life whose
bidden springs are fed from the Infinite
"Whon I receive my pay at the end
of the month and put it in my pocket,
it is my own. I don't owe any man a
dollar of It." So said a man in our
houring. He proved himself a philoso
pher und a financier. He keeps out of
debt, and enjoys life. But, probably,
he does not represent a very large class.
With the majority, shall we say? well
with a great many the statement
would have to be reversed. When they
receive their pay it is hardly sufficient
to pay their debts. Thoy are always
behind, always ioor, and always
unhappy. The difference between those
two classes of people is great. The
secret of it is debt. In many instances
people might just as easily keep out of
debt, and have their finances ahead of
them, as to have thorn always dragging
behind. Every family which has erred
in this matter should determine to get
square with the world by care and
economy, and then keep square.
How woll we all know by experience
that every day brings Its provocations,
its perplexities, it misunderstandings.
Irritations arise; Motions make their
appearance; hurts are received. How
hard it is amid all these conditions to
guard one's tongue, and leave unspoken
what is best covered by Bllonce. A
mosquito bite may, If properly culti
vated, develop into an ulcer. Keep the
skin thoroughly abraded, sprinkle on
a little acid, touch it with minute
particles of poison, and one may have a
cancer or u gangrene. The body will
soon discharge its impurities partially
into that sunken place, and help convert
it into an open sewer. But let a
mosquito bite alone, or apply a little
aweet-oll and ammonia, and it soon
disappears, leaving no trace. A little
wound in the spirit may be cultivated
until the whole nature is infected.

' 'Gantle silence prevents untold trouble."

gold in pictures of silver.

Tna Sword Cane In Franca
Lond cries for help were heard pro
ceeding from the end of the Rne de la
Chapelle on Saturday1 night, and on
hastening to the spot the police fonnd
three men lyirnj wounded on the pave
ment. One of them, named Francois de
Geyter, had been rnn through the body
with a sword enne and died shortly
afterward. The others were not bo
severely injured. Louis Dcsilter had
received a wonnd in the neck, and the
third, a soldier of the Third engineers,
named Henry Bonfllers, had his left
hand pierced by a sword throat.
They were taken to a chtv.ilnt to have
their wonnds dressed, and were able to
make a statement as to the cause of the
affray. They said that they wers passing
along the Rue de la Clmpelle; they met
two mon and two women who were
singing most discordantly. DeUeyter
and his companions began to imitate
them, and a qnarrel. which terminated
in a fight, was the result. The two men,
seeing they were getting the worst of It.
drew sword canes and inflicted the
wounds already described. The wound
ed men gave a description of their as
sailants and Bctive measures are being
taken to discover them. Ualignani Mes
senger. Proving Owncrahlp.
Avery amusing trial developed out
of a suit of replevin for a dog, brought
by Dr. E. T. Brady against John A.
Levi in Justice Shannon's court in
Kansas City recently. Both parties
claimed the ownership of the dog. Dr.
Brady's attorney, however, stated that
they could prove the claimantship be
yond donbt by the recognition of the
dog for Mrs. Brady, and she was accord
ingly summoned. The animal immedi
ately jumped from his place in the
prisoner's box and showed with every
demonstration of canine joy his recog
nition of his mistress.
In consideration of the adverse testi
mony this was still not convincing to
the judge, so Mrs. Brady said that if
she would sing a certain song the ani
mal, in response to bis training, would
join in with her in his dog fashion and
voice and sing the song through. This
she did, and at the first words of the
song the dog leaped for joy and fulfilled
his part of the duet. No further evi
dence was taken, and the canine re
turned home with Mrs. Brady.
The Abolition of tha Collrs "Rash."
A very sensible change in under
graduate manners and customs is the
dropping of the annual "rush" be
tween the sophomore and freshman
classes in several of the larger colleges
this year. At Cambridge the peculiar
exercises of "Bloody Monday" were
omitted by the voluntary action or in
action of the students themselves. At
Yale the faculty interposed a pro
hibitory ordor which the students re
spected. At Princeton the students
met in mass meeting and voted that the
"rush" should be abolished.
There are few who will regret the'
disappearance of this feature of Amer
ican college life. Compared with some
other customs which have survived, it
may be considered harmless; but its
abolition is an act of manliness far more
creditable than any of the exhibitions of
physical prowess which used to ac
company it. Boston Commonwealth.

A brilliant Belgian, "realising tha

and the desire to avoid meats as a food,"
patented the idea of making a soup from

coction, he said, would give strength
and possessed remarkable nourishing
qualities. He failed to say, however,
whether or not he was a vegetarian.
