The inmatee were soundly asleep until a portion of the roof had fallen in, and they were compelled to rush from their beds into the raging snow storm In their night garment and with bare feet.

Aaber in Chicago. a . . m mm n lsxnerignc sort oi gins, my dear. We have lota of young ladies and lots of misses and lots of flesh pots with no higher aim than hus band catching and pleasure, but the "homey" sweet, old fashoned girls are growing scarce as glacial fossils. We are almost out of home girls; girls that are"mothers right hand.1 girls that can cuddle the little ones next best to mama, and smooth out the tangles in the domestic skein when things get twisted, girls that father takes comfort in for some thing better than beauty, and that big brothers are pround of for some thing that outranks the ability to read german. We want girls of sense, girls that have a standard of their own, inde pendent of conventionalities and are brave enough to live up to it, girls bo simply won't wear a trailing skirt on tbe street becauee fashion dictates, girls that will don what is pretty and becoming and snap their fingers at the edicts of an ugly style. We want good girls, girls that are sweet light straight out from the heart to the lips, innocent and simple-minded girla with less knowledge and duplicity and evil-doing at 25 than the pert little school miss of 10 nowdays, girls that say their pray ers and read their biblea.and are not ashamed to show their colors. And we want careful girls and prudent girls, who think enough of tbe gener ous father who toils early and late to maintain them in comfort, or of the gentle mother who denies herself much that they may have pretty things, to take care of their clothes and draw the line sharply between the essentials and non-essentials of their needs, girls who strive tally as hard to save as they do to spend, girls who are useful and thoughtful, and seek to be a joy in the home rather than an expensive burden. We want girls with hearts, girls who are full of tenderness and sym pathy, with "tears that flow for other's ill," and smiles that light outward their sunny thoughts. We have clever girls, and witty girls, and brilliant girls. Give us a con signment of jolly, unaffected, natur al girls, warm hearted, hohemian, mpulsive girls, hail-fellow, comrud ey inrls with lots of fun and no coarseness, girls who can go out and romp in the snow, wash tbe snow in to each other's faces, tug at a hand eled and roll a snowball and think it no forfeiture of their dignity to frolic with their 10 year-old broth ers. With a few more such girls the world would brighten up as June does under showery weather. Speed the day when the world is full of them, to the extinction of tbe airy affected, brainleee, heartless minixes who think of nothing but self, face powder and braces. Oh to live long enough to see my own eort of girls flourishing in the world as some do when they , break through the trellis to glimmer and glint above the common highway, a blessing and a boon to all who pass thereby. Gamblers are seldom industrious men in any useful vocation. Labor loses its relish as the passion fur play increases. It destroys all do mestic habits arid affections. The gambler may for a moment ej.ort with the children and smile upon his! wife, but his heart is not ut home. A little branch rill may Gow through the family, but the deep well of his affections flows from home." It destroys all that is good in soul, vitiates the whole character aud drags down every lofty purpaew and noble inspiration. Once in the fatal en a re the gambler is eeldom saved. FricDda may warn, th wif entreat with the eloquence of her tenr, and the children cry for bread, but deuf ns the adder, depurate as the maniac, he rushes or. regardless of danger, reckless of consequence. I would like someone to explain thn phenomenon that all housekeep ers know, lint nobody seems to un derstand. If boiling wat;r is poured Into an empty tuuibler the tumbler will crack, but if ther. is a silver spoon in the tumbler it does not matter how hot the water is nor bow much you pour in, the tumbler will stand the heat. Every house keeper knows the fact but none can explain it, and yet tnere must be a renron. - - A !!r:rsr:; rr.r. The Best Medicine. J. O. Wilsox, Contractor and' Iiiiilder, Sulphur Springs, Texas, thus speaks of Ayer's Pills: , " Ayers Pills are the best medicine I ever tried; and, in my judgment, no Ix tter general remedy could be devised. I have used them iu my family and recommended themto my friends and employe for more than twenty years. To my certain-knowledge, many cases of the following complaints Lave been completely and Permanently Cured by the use of Ayer's Pills alone: Third day chills, dumb ague, bilious fever, sick headache, rheumatism, flux, dys pepsia, constipation, and hard colds. I knOW that a. mmlrgt. iisa m. vwv IWO V Jljll W Pills, continued for a few days or weeks, as the natufe of the complaint required, -would be found an absolute cure for the disorders I have named above." "I have been selling medicine for eight years, and I can safely say that Ayere Pills give better satisfaction than any other Pill I ever sold." J. J. Perry, Spottsylvania C. H., Va. AYER'S PILLS Prepared by Dr. J. C. Ayer & Co., Lowell, Umn. Bvery Dose Effective Trousers in History. Somebody has discovered that even men's trousers have a history. Miss Celia Logan holds that the fig: eaf developed successfully into tbtt bear skin, tunic, tights, knee-brecbeer and trousers. The truth, probablr is that trousers were first introduced as a brilliant discovery by - some ancient. In fact, it is almost certain that trousers were first worn as n special form of costume by persons who rode horse back. When they got off tbe horse they resumed their flowing robes. It was soon found that trousers were better adopted than togas for quick movements of tbe legs, and when the : barbarian overran Kome their legs were en cash ed In trousers. In tbe picture by Ron artists of these conquerors (in which there is probably no effort at fla-' tery) the trousers are represented ae most unbecoming garments, being very wide about the knees and gath ered at the ankles. The rest of their clothing ungainly and consisted of shirts,, easy boots and perhaps a- scanty mantle on the shoulders. It is difficult to understand why such a- hideous costume : was worn. Even that of Robinson Crusoe, whose op- tiful were limited, was elegant ia comparison. All this discussion ha oeeo precipuaiea Dy me genera stiulv nf Adntn'n rnntnmA in thn In ternational Sunday School lesson Xliisoori and taretrip.
