Why II« Nev
Not long ago a mature spinster
called upon the famous after-dinner
speaker, Mr. Depew, and asked him
to give her some information about
EîiSltaL™ 8ai ?' h0r0 , Wer t ° tw
things he knew nothing about, and
wer , e womei ? and real estate.
t his reply amused her, and she asked
him a number of questions about peo
pie whom they knew in common.
After she propounded the following
questions about a stammering bach
elor she asked no more, but went her
way.
"Where is Mr. Blank, Mr. Depew?"
"He Is in the city," repled the only
C'hauucey- 3
"Does he stammer as much as
U8 ™"' t v. ,
"Oh, yes; worse,I believe," said the
orator.
"Strange he never married."
"No, It was not strange, dear lady.
Blank courted a lovely girl. He told
about his courtship several years
after it occurred. He proposed in
this way:
"'H-d-d-d-deara-a-angel, 11-1-1-love
earth looked down
And this leads me
Let sisters not be

tu
Proptiat—FIc*.
It used to be jestingly said that the
name of Mohammed was invoked for
all purposes, evendown to the itin
erant fruit-seller, whose cry was "In
the name of the Prophet—figs. " But
it appears to be the practice for en
terprising and pushing British man
ufacturers to have recourse to the
alliance of piety with profits.
British exporters to Morocco, it
seems, have been accustomed to
place Arabic Inscriptions on their
wares, such
s
calicoes, candles,
matches, etc According to the Con
sul at Magador, the Sultan has lately
Issued the following warning through
the customs administration: "Having
learned that certain goods Imported,
Including calicoes, matches, etc., havo
been Imported, bearing in Arabic
characters the name of Mohomraed,
samp by Moslem, and beurlng other
writing not suitable to be on such
articles, I order you to give notice to
the merchants to advise the correspon
dents in other countries to discon
tinue the sending of goods so marked.
A reasonable time will be allowed for
this notice to reach them. Any such
goods imported after due notice has
been given will be seized by the gov
ernment aud treated as contraband.
Should the Importer lie a Moslem, he
will be punished in addition to the
forfeiture."
It is evident, the Consul adds, that
the pracOce of inscribed goods des
tined for Mohammedan countries with
the name of the Prophet and other
holy names and sacred allusions,
doubtless Intended by the manufac
turer to be flattering and pleasing to
his Mohammedan customer, may have
quite the contrary effect upon the
orthodox, and should be avoided ao

"In God Wo TruR,"
The motto "In God Wc Trust, *
which is now stamped upon all gold
and silver coins of the United States,
was suggested by an old farmer living
In Maryland. This conscientious
Christian gentleman thought that
our currency should Indicate in some
way the Christian character of oui
nation, which, he argued, could be
best done by putting a motto upon
our coins expressing a national reli
ance on divine support In govern
mental affaira It was in 1801, when
S. P. Chase wa9 Secretary of the
Treasury, that this man wrote tc
Washington respecting his pet idea.
His letter was referred to Mint Di
rector Pollock, who discussed the
question In hi9 report of 1862. Pol
lock and Chase were In favor of in
troducing the motto • at once, but
Congress gave the suggestion no at
tention whatever. In his next an
nual report Director Pollock again re
ferred to the matter, this time in
firm theological argument, saying
"The motto suggested, 'God Oui
Trust,' is taken from our National
hymn, 'The Star-Spangled Banner;'
the sentiment is familiar to every
citizen of our country; the time is
propitious; 'tis an hour of National
peril. Let us reverently acknowl
edge His sovereignty and let oui
coinage declare our trust in God." A
2-cent bronze piece was authorized
by Congress to be coined the following
year, and April 22, 1804, the first
United States coin was stamped with
the legend "In God We Trust"—St
Louis Republic.

Borders for Russian Cross-Stitoh.
—Cross-stitch ombroidery, with the
influx from Paris of all things Russian,
has become a popular decoration foi
blouses, vests, eto. It is worked iD
silk or cotton, in rather large stitohes,
the usual colors being shades of blue,
terra-cotta, red, olive greens, and dull
yellow. The work is facilitated by |
basting bands of Berlin canvas on the
material, to guide the maker in plnoiug

The papers have boen discussing •
lately the question whether the sauoy
little English sparrow which was
brought to this country os a supposed
benefactor, has not rather proved him- j
splf a nuisance from tho injury which
he dofc* to growing crops. Already s

should be Investigated for if the gay !
little fellow is not the nuisance his j
enemies make him out to be, he should
be left to live his bustling chattering
little life without fenr of deadly airgun ,

themselves pro and eon upon this sab- j

THE ENGLISH SPARROW.
One ol your correspondents speaks
of the English sparrow
little scavenger, endeavoring to p ; k
np and consume the accumulated fi. h
d gutters." Is this
bird really a scavenger, a remover of
filth? It is true he is active in pick
ing the undigested grains and partio'es
3f food from the horse-droppings of
our streets, but instead of removing
filth he actually spread it, and dis
tributes it over a greater surface. It
teems to me he might better be called
a distributer and depositor of filth. I
know of no active bird that deposits so
uch filth about our dwellings and on
our sidewalks.
■I think the English Sparrow has been
basely slandered. I have watohed him
a number of years and fonnd his winter
impudence and chat 1 er rather enjoy,

The question of suitable clothing for
children is one which engages the chief
attention of anxious mothers, and it
must be confessed that, as a rule, it is
far more easy to provide pretty and
inexpensive garments for girla than for
hoys. Two ways for dressing small
boys are now in vogue. One plun
Idopfed by mauy mothers is that of
keeping their liitlo boys in dresses

having them w< ar kilts with jackets

It our modern dress reformers were
wise in their generation, they would
make a friend and ally of Dame hasb
adversary not to bo
despised, and they should propitiate
her in every possible and reasonable
way. There are many useful lessons
that they might leurn of her as to the
manner in which it is possible to bring
about successfully any contemplated
change in dress. One of the most
importunt of these lessons is that oi
the way in which sbe gradually famil
iarizes the eyes of her followers with
her varions extremes, instead of trying
to force them upon her votaries at
once, and in their entirety. Why can
not we get short skirts in that way?
Some years ngo Lady Florence Dixie
proposed a costume desirable, not only
on account of its comfort and grace and
picturesque beauty, which aro among
its possibilities, bat because it is so
easily attainable; the battle in its favor
is already half won,and,quite recently,
Miss Mary F. Seymour lias been advo- f
catiDg a very similar stvle of dross.
The principal feature of both of these
reform gowns is the short skirt. Lady
Florence Dixie's ideal dress consists of
a flannel shirt, knickerbockers, kilt,
and loose jacket; the skirt of Miss
Seymour is plain or kilted
fers, and the waist is made in any Btyle
that is comfortable nnd boooming, and
is supplied with plenty of pookets;
with both, long leggin s are- toJMj
worn. Already such a " jrstume is won!
as a mountain dress tmd by many wo
men who fiHlror bunt, and a few bolder
spirits are trying to bring it into the
cities as a rainy-day dress all the
round. The boating dross, tbe bathing
drees, the tennis tires«, tho bicycle
dress, the gymnasium dress are oll de- «
partures from the every-day standard
in this direction. All practical and ac
cepted efforts toward the freedom to
be obtained by the wearing of less
hampering garments seem to tendij^H
