A generation ago to be an Ideal hous^ keeper was the chief ambition of almost every woman. No girl desired a fairer fate than to be placed at the head of a household with a good and loving hus band to supply all her vrsu.^ and make her the mistress and the queen of hit heart and his home. In most cases, saya the Peoria Herald Transcript, the girl who started housekeeping had more or !**■ •*P*risnoe in the art under the tuition of her mother. She loved to decorate and beautify the house which was to be her home during the rest of her earthly pil grimage. She loved to create dellcaclea for her husband and her children, and, disguise it aa we may, much of the af fection she reoeived was due entirely to her skill aa a homemaker. .When her children grew up around ner thia kind and aympathetlc mother and the pantry were the chief attractlona in their world. Aa they grew older the ties only grew tho stronger. When they acquired families i their own tho old homestead, with Its abundance of good things, still had attractions **r them. The kind old mother was still their best friend. She knew all the difficulties they had to en counter In starting homes of their own, and her advice and sympathy were worth more to them than gold. The grandchildren came to venerate her as a sort of venerable goddess, and when she finally went away from the home circle she left a vacancy which could never be filled. But we are assured with every symp tom of rejoicing that these conditions are passing; that women have beea emancipated; that In the future they are to be the rival, Instead of the helpmate, of man, and that they must combine to enforce their Just demands against the hostility of the male sex. This Is non sense pure and simple. It may be trus that there are more mannish women in this generation than there were in the last. It is unfortunately true that a larger proportion of the female popula tion has been forced to be self-support ing, but It is not true that women enjoy the so-called "liberty” which goes with tolling for a living. Tha home instinct is too deeply planted In the heart of women to be re moved bv the effects of a feneration oi club work. It will never be removed. A few women may go after strange gods, but the natural, wholesome girl will still find her highest Ideal of happiness in a good husband and a cozy home. Ths clubs may succeed In making such homes Impossible to a few men and women by making the young women feel that they have a more Important work In ths world than the prosaic duty of home making, but among the masses of ths American people the mother will con tinue to be the bond which unites ths unities of that holy Institution the fam ily, and she will continue In this exalted role until the end of all things.

Is the home that 1 have brought you to less magnificent than you expected?” “Oh, n-no,” she eobbed. “It Is g-grand er than 1 dared to h-hope.” “Have you found since our marriage that I am less exalted than you had sup posed me to be?” "Oh, F-Fred, you are a th-thousand times more exalt-t-ted than 1 thougfit you to b-be.” Stooping down he kissed away two large tears that were trembling upon her long, graceful lashes, and asked: “Has it grieved you to be taken from your parents and the scenes of your childhood, little one.” “No, no, dear-dearest,” she replied. “I would g-gladly go anywhere w-wtth you" “Great heavens!" he cried, In wild alarm. “Perhaps you are ill.

Ctenn&na Treat Ordinary Materials 1 with Petroleum—Curious Aquatic Displays In Tailors’ Windows. It has usually been thought that rubber was about the only substance which would render cloth waterproof, although oil silk is coated with another one, a prep aration of linseed oil. However, "showerproof” cloth is known as that which repels water very largely and yet remains porous, appearing in all respects like of diary wetable cloth. The methods of treatment of such cloth are often trade secrets, and even the patent specifications do not di , vnlge all that must be done to achieve a satisfactory result. "Petroleum,” a German period ical, says that the oil to which that paper owes its name is one of the most successful showerproof preparations. It says that the only reliable shower proof is ob tained by impregnating the cloth outside and in with a fine film of waxes. Paraffin wax is the staple, bnt owing to its low melting point It is not fit for nse alone. The com position used is so alloyed with other waxes and chemicals.thakat the boiling point of water the wax stands firm. A rather elaborate preparatory form must be gone through, and after the wax has been applied a finishing process is required. The interesting fact re mains that it is petroleum that keeps out the wet. In tailors' win flows in Germany many aqnatic displays have been arranged to show that cloth can mysteriously be made to exhibit the power of the duck's back. Wool, cotton, silk, linen, velvets, braids, and | even sails, awnings and tent cloths are thus wrapped in an in visible film of rock oil. § PHYSICAL CONSCIOUSNESS. The Brain in Certain States of Activ ity Can Act on the Organle functions. “Cenesthesia” is the name giyeo to the general feeling we have of the existence of our own bodies, says the London Globe. This sense of existence is chiefly owing to accidental and local impres sions awakening or stimulating I the sensibility, but it Is completed by a certain obverse conscious ness of the exercise of the organic functions, for example, respira tion. It is by this sensation that the spiritual Ego perceives itself existing locally in the limited ex tent of the organism. In perfect health this feeling is continuous, uniform, and equal, and therefore, not special or local. In order to be j remarked a certain exaltation of j well-being or distinct uneasiness j Is required. In the hypnotic state ; certain subjects have a more or ' less distinct perception of their ! internal organs and can exert cer tain action over them. In fact, they can modify at will all the functions of the “vegetative” life, for instance, the beating of the j heart. The fact shows that the brain in certain states of activity can act on the organic functions. If there is a nervous current from the brain to the organs there is also, perhaps, a contrary current from the organs to the brain. Dr. Cromer, Liebault^ and others, maintain that some hypnotic sub BA. • A 1 • • I • jruiB pciucnc uirir luieruiii ur* gans, and even those of other per- j sons with whom they are in hyp- 1 notic relations. Immortelles. The manufacture of immortelle wreaths in Paris occupies at least j 1,500 persons. The immortelles ; are gathered about the beginning j of October, and come chiefly from the arid hills in the middle and south of France. They are brought to the markets in their natural condition, and the yellow blossoms are dyed green, red and white, and woven into wreaths by special workmen In readiness for All Saints’ and All Souls’ days, when all good Parisians visit their relatives’ graves. On these “fetes des morts” the gates of the ceme teries are beset with crowds of dealers in immortelle wreaths, wire crosses and bead crowns. At Pere la Chaise alone more than 200.000 persons are calculated to visit the cemetery, and the sale of immortelle wreaths varies from 20.000 to 25,000.—Golden Penny. The Stingy Man.

One of the things that passed through the Baltimore tire un scathed was a cane once owned by George Washington and now the property of Maj. H. H. Raleigh. The cane reposed during the tire in the vault of the Merchants’ Credit and Collection Bureau at Liberty and German streets, says the New York Sun. “In Gen. Washington’s will,” said Maj. Raleigh, “two canes are mentioned. One was bequeathed to Robert Washington, of Chop tank, Va., who gave it to Robert Thompson, a relative. “Later it passed to Miss Kittle Thompson, a sister of Robert Thompson, and finally Peter Gra son Washington of New Yorl^ who was assistant secretary of the treasury under Guthrie, was the owner of the stick. “Peter Grason Washington be queathed the cane to the oldest male heir of Gen. George Wash ington who was living at the time of his death. The late Mrs. Ra leigh was a granddaughter of a Mrs. McPherson, of Washington, t>. C., who before her marriage was a Miss Washington. After some contention it was proved that Mrs. Raleigh’s brother, whose family name was Edwards, was the person entitled to the pos session of the cane. I purchased the relic for my wife, and when she died it became my property.” Although described as a cane, the relic is really a staff. It is of bamboo, about four and a half feet long and just such a stick as Washington might have used in tramping oVer his broad acres in Mount Vernon. The Washington coat-of-arms adorns its gold head, and it is encircled with a gold band, upon which is inscribed: “Willed to Robert Washington and by him to descend to Peter Grason Washington, of New York.” As soon as the embers had cooled, Maj. Raleigh hastened to the vault and was much relieved to And after the cane had been re moved from the chamois skin case that it had not been scorched. SHARK AS A MESSENGER. Carried Newspaper to Sydney Outdis tancing Steamer Conveying Im portant Item of News. The story of the discovery ol human bones and bangles in the interior of the crocodile captured at Fort Johnson, Rhodesia, brings to mind another story which may appositely be recalled at the present juncture. Every body has heard of “Mrs. Macquar Tie’s chair,” as they call the east ern point of Farm Cove, in Sydney harbor. There, says the St James’ Gazette, it was that a poor emigrant, in pre-cable days, killed and towed ashore a shark, cut him up, and found a London newspa per in the internals. In the paper was the announcement of the war between France and Germany, The shark had outdistanced the steamer by which the mail was coming, and here the discoverer had the fact to himself. He gava his information to a wealthy wool dealer, who bought all the sea son’s clip at 9d. per pound, anq sold at 3s. after the news of the 11 • 11 ii i* war iiiiu ttinvcu uj me urumaij channel. He cleared, it ia said, four millions sterling by the deal. The man who killed the shark and extracted the news of price—well, he received a battered silk hat and a five shilling piece and unre strained liberty as to the disposal of the shark. Forgot the Chimney. A short time ago a public cero mony was to be carried out at Landshut, an important town in Lower Bavaria. A new public school was to be formally opened, and all Landshut quivered with pleasurable anticipation. Unfor tunately the festivities had to be put off at the last moment. The school could not be opened. No scholar could take his seat upon the brand-new forms. The land was in the grip of winter, and the architect had forgotten to provide a single chimney throughout the building. Butter. Butter has been found by T. E. Thorpe to be influenced by cli mate, fodder, breed of cow, period of lactation and idiosyncrasy of the individual tow. Nervousness AN AMERICAN DISEASE Sr. 8.
