EIIGUi'S TEMPLES Beautiful Tribute to Past Labors of Catholic Church. William Winter, the Dramatic Critic, Says He Is Conscious, of a Pro- found Obligation for Church's Preservation of the Arts. I'tica. N". Y. A beautiful tribute 13 paid by William Winter, the dramatic critic, to the old Catholic temples of England, many of which now lie in ruin. "To think of the Catholic Church," he says, "is to think of the oldest, the most venerable and the most powerful religious institution ex isting among men. I am not a church man of any kind; that, possibly. Is my misfortune; but I am conscious of a profound obligation of gratitude to that wise and august austere, yet ten derly human ecclesiastical power, which, self-centered amid vicissitudes of human affairs and provident of men of learning, imagination, and sensibil ity throughout the world has pre served the literature and art of all the centuries, has made architecture the living symbol of celestial aspiration, and in poetry and in music has heard and has transmitted the authentic .voice of Cod. . "I say that I am not a churchman; but I would also say that the best hours of my life have been hours of meditation passed in the glorious cethedrals, and among the sublime ecclesiastical ruins of England. "I have worshiped in Canterbury, and York, in Winchester and Salis bury in Lincoln and Durham, in Ely and in Wells. "I have stood in Tintern, when the preen grass and the white daisies were waving in the summer wind, and have looked upon the gray and rus set walls and upon those lovely arched casements among the most graceful ever devised by human art round which the sheeted ivy drops and through which the winds ot heaven sing a perpetual requiem. "I have seen the shadows of eve ning slowly gather and softly fall over the gaunt tower, the roofless nave, the giant pillars and the shattered ar cades of Fountains Abbey, in its se cjuested and melancholy solitude, where ancient Ripon dreams in the spacious and verdant valleys of the Skell. "I have mused upon Netley and Kirkstall, and Newstead, and l.olton, and Melrose, and Dryburgh; and at a midnight hour I have stood in the grim and gloomy chancel of St. Columbia's St. Columba's Ruins. Cathedral, remote in the storm-swept Hebrides, and looked upward to the cold stars, and heard the voices of the birds of night mingled with the des olate moaning of the sea. "V?ith awe, with reverence, with many strange and wild thoughts I have lingered and pondered in those haunted holy places, but one remem brance was always present the re membrance that it was the Roman Catholic church that created those forms of beauty, and breathed into them the breath of a divine life, and hallowed them forever; and thus think ing I have left the unspeakable pathos of her long exile from the temples that her passionate devotion prompted "and her loving labor reared."

Denver Times. First Chinese School Bcok. There are also fragments of the Chi Chiu-Chang vocabulary composed by a eunifh of the palace in about the year 40, A. D. All the authentic texts of this ancient s. hool book, widely used in the year 2 to teach Chinese chil dren to read and write, had long since disappeared. The paper manuscripts are the oldest examples of such litera ture in existence. M. Chavannes has succeeded in reconstructing from these heterogeneous and more or less frag mentary and disconnected materials a fairly probable picture of the daily life of the Chinese garrisons that held these frontier posts agr.inst the Huns and kept open the trade routes to Farghana and Yaikand. The human as well as scientific interest of such a pic ture is manifest. At Church in Holland. Tn many parts of Holland lnm still wear their hats in church. Moreover, smoking in church is not considered irreverent by the Dutch when service is not in progress, and, it is said, even the ministers sometimes indulge in this practice. Altogether, Dutch Protestantism is. it would seem, from a certain stand point, a comfortable form of religion. One may keep his hat on in church, which saves him many a chill; he may talk freely and in his natural voice, not in a whisper; he has a neat house maid in a white cap and apron to show him to his pew or to offer him a chair; and he has .nice drab pews of painted deal all around him and a cheerful "two-decker" pulpit above. GRANDMA USED SAGE TEA ', TO DARKEN HER GRAY HAIR She Made Up a Mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur to Bring Back Color, Gloss, Thickness. Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and SulDhur. properly compound ed, brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray; also ends dandruff, itching scalp and stops falling hair. Years ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays, by asking at any store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy," you will get a large bottle of this famous old recipe for about 50 cents. Don't stay gray! Try it! No one ran nossiblv tell that you darkened your hair, as it does it so naturally and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair disappears, and after another ap nliration or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy.

"A good New Year resolution for a middle-aged married man?" said George Ade at a dinuer in Chicago. "Well, the best resolution "a middle aged married man could make, accord ing to my view, would be for him to swear oft telling his wife and children about the girlslie used. to kiss jfl his young days. "I'd say to the middle-aged married man of this type: ' 'Suppose, friend, your wife fell into a reminiscent, jovial mood some eve ning after supper and started to tell about the boys who used to kiss her by the wood stove in the dim parlor, wouldn't the dove of peace flap her wings and light out p. d. q. just?'" Terrible Dilemma. Our friend Tom married recently, says a contributor to the Doston Tran script. His bride, being from the Pa cific coast, where thunderstorms are rare and moderate, became terrified when a genuine eastern "rip-roarer" broke loose, and she sought safety in a closet. Presently came a scream from her place of refuge. "What's the matter?" Inquired her husband. "O Tom," she answered, half-crying, half-laughing, "I'm afraid to come out because of the lightning, and I'm afraid to stay in here because there's a mouse." Indians First "Cubists" (?)
