THE DUTY OF MOTHERS.
What suffiring frequently results
from a motler's ignorance; or more
frequently from a mother's neglect to
properly instruct her daughter !
Tradition says "woman must suf
fer," and young women are so taught.
There is a little truth and a great deal
of exaggeration in this. If a young
woman suffers severely she needs
treatment, and her mother should see
that she gets it.
Many mothers hesitate to take their
daughters to a physician for examina
tion; but no mother need hesitate to
write freely about her daughter or I

Byron, Wis., mother of the young lady

Obadiah served in th2 army of Wash

Penn., where he was judge of the local
court for some years.
Daniel Gore had a farm and dwell

On a farm adjoining his to the north
was a bed of rock, which came to the
surface. A question arose as to whether
it was a form of coal. It was tried in
fireplaces on wood fires and failed to
be of use. Daniel Gore experimented
with it in the blacksmith's forge and
established the possibility of its com
It should be remembered that black
smithing was an important industry
in the early days of the settlement of
this country. The local blacksmith
of the Wyoming Valley was no excep

also fixtures of houses, such as hinges,
door handles and latches, nails, etc.,
together with kitchen utensils, and
irons, cranes, hooks and trammels,
such as were then in use, were made
in the blacksmith shop.
The Gore family in question, when
the American colonies revolted against
the tyranny of England, proved them
selves sturdy patriots and defenders
of their country's cause.

is said to be unique of its kind. The
one situated on the shore, with its
shops, markets and streets, is the sum

tion of two hotels, the Ville d'Hiver is
composed of about 300 independent
villas, standing amidst their own gar
dens, the pines being all around. The
avenues are laid out serpentine fash
ion, to avoid air currents; nothing but
low hedges or light fences separate
the different gardens. Neither ter
rages of houses are tolerated, nor
shops, the result being quite park-like,
and the eye, even in full winter, is re
freshed by living masses of green.
From the heights one gets a line view
of the Vllle d'Ete, the fishing boats
and "Oyster Park."
Here the oyster girls follow their
trade. When the boats come in they
work on the floats near the shore, and

their knickerbockers, big hats and sa

k- THE "WHITE DEATH."
ry Remarkable Mist in the RockSie Which
of Orften Proves Fatal.
Of all the natural phenomena pe
cp euliar to the Rocky Mountain :egion
, none is more strange or terrible than
s. the mysterious storm known to the In
c", dians as "the white death." Scientific
d- men have never yet had an opportun
is, sty of investigating it, because it
de comes at the most unexpected times
and may keep away from a certain lo
en cality for years. Well-read men who
st have been through it say that it is
1- really a frozen fog. But where the
rs fog comes from is more than any one
can say. This phenomenon occurs
most frequently in the northern part
of Colorado, in Wyoming and occa
in sionally in Montana. About two years
re ago a party of three women and two
e, men were crossing North Park in a
wagon in the month of February.
le The air was bitterly cold, but dry as
a bone and motionless. The sun shone
ch with almost startling brilliancy. As
he the five people drove along over the
crisp snow they did not experience the
ad least cold, but really felt most com
fe fortable, and rather enjoyed the trip.
Mountain peaks fifty miles away could
be seen as distinctly as the pine trees
u by the roadside. Suddenly one of the
n, women put her hand up to her face
e and remarked that something had
n stung her. Then other members of
- the party did the same thing, although
there was not an insect in sight. All
marvelled greatly at this. A moment
later they noticed that the distant
mountains were disappearing behind
a cloud of mist. Mist in Colorado in
February? Surely there must be some
mistake. But there was no mistake,
because within ten minutes a gentle
wind began to blow, and the air be
came filled with fine particles of some
thing that scintillated like diamond
dust in the sunshine. Still the peo
ple drove on until they came to a
cabin where a man signalled them to
stop. With his head tied up in a
bundle of mufflers, he rushed out and
handed the driver a piece of paper on
which was written: "Come into the
house quick, or this storm will hkil
all of you. Don't talk outside here.o"
Of course no time was lost in getting
under cover and putting the horses in
the stables. But they were a little
late, for in less than an hour the
whole party was sick with violent
coughs and fever. Before the next
morning one of the women died with
all the symptomrs of pneumonia, The
others were violently ill of it, but

WHAT ANTS DO.

There are a good many ants of dif
ferent varieties on the lot at my coun
try place near Covington, and last year
I began to make a systematic study of
their habits. I found it a most faeein
ating pursuit and have resumed it with
much enthusiasm during several visits
this year. A little investigation will
convince almost anybody, I think, that
the ant approaches nearer to a man in
point of intelligence than any of the
lower animals. 6ome of the things I
have seen are so marvelous that I
would hesitate to speak of them it
similar wonders had not been fully re
corded by trained scientists. Near
one of my flower beds is a colony of
small red ants that are extremely in
dustrious in collecting food, and they
frequently perform the most astonish
ing engineering feats in transporting
heavy burdens to their homes. Not
long ago I watched a party of about
a dozen that had found the body of a
small spider, and were dragging it
toward the nest. The spider had
hairy legs, which struck out in every
direction and caught on obstacles,
greatly rctarding progress. For ser
eral minutes the ants rolled away with
their awkward booty, and then stopped
and seemed to hold a council. A min
ute fragment of dry leaf was lying on
the ground; presently they all laid

slid it along without difficulty. On an
other occasion I saw a large body of
these same ants start out for a raid on
