Christmas is a good time to keep can non-crackers, tov cannons and other dangerous fireworks out of the hand of children. The young cadet who explained to the army investigating committee that hazing meant taking the conceit out of a raw recruit, developed considerable of it himself before he finished. James J. Hill, President of the Great Northern Railroad, says ships can be built more cheaply in this country than on the Clyde. Why, then, give ship builders 89.000,000 per year ? The Nebraska Republican associa tion in Washington recently held a meeting at which Senator Hanna was introduced by Senator Thurston in these words: ‘‘He is a man who has proved himself to be one of the great est men now living. He has been hon ored by the people of his own State. He will yet receive honors from the American people.” Cheering followed, lasting several minutes. This marks the appearance of the Hanna presiden tial boom. And why not Hanna ? Bet er the master than the man.—New Or leans States. f There was something approaching a - the other day among the 4,000 girl of a big tobacco factory in Jersey City, An edict went forth that rail of them must be vaccinated in order to avoid having the factory shut down by a possible outbreak of smallpox among the employes. Many of the pretty and plump girls did not like the prospect of sore or disfigured arms'. K They had engagements for coming Alls and parties at which decollete grans are in order. The doctors, how ever, Refused to vaccinate in anv other part of th® body, and after much pro test the girls submitted. FARMER, PAST AND PRESNT. When one stops to consider the flight of time, prime causes for a touch of sad ness are the changes it brings. “Are they always for the better ?” is a ques- V tion that remains unanswered, though it will not down. One might cite the farmer as one among the 'many who have been affect ed by the continual change of things. The agriculturist of to-day is different from that of a generation or two ago— especially the more successful planter. By his isolated life, he was removed from the centers of thought and activ ity, but none the less happy, for he was contented. His was a career of sim plicity, hospitality and quiet pleasures. With his dogs and slaves, his sleek stock and well-fill barns, his bounteous cellars filled with fruit and lie might u >■; 1 l"“k ■ n iln* f<> 1 himself .1 ma 1 . BL HL CHRISTMAS MEMORIES. 9 Christmas day might be called th Feast ot Memory. Let the Christmas merriment run as high as it will, let joy reign in our hearts,let contentment dwell in our souls, yet the tender ghost of other Christmases will rise up in pallid splendor and walk beside us. In the midst of present delights old memories lay their softening touch upon us. They lead us gently back among the dreams and shadows of long lost days. They take us to the vacant dwellings. They guide us to the green hillside spots where Love and Life have laid down their idols. How in significant become the cares and am bitions of life when we think of them who no longer keep Christmas on earth, whose lives made our own more radiant—more blessed, whose departure left over us the awful, brooding Silence ! From the summit of this Christmas tide we turn and look back over the valley of the year past, and beyond upon the hills and dales and solemn spaces of other years none by. There rise in review before ns the meadow lands of pleasures, the hills of duties and mountains of opportunities for ex pressing our energies or realizing our ideals. Christmas is the day when the soul instinctively reckons with itself. Ail the good advice and the admonition of a lifetime weigh as feathers against the stimulus it receives from the con sciousness of tasks well done and ef forts honestly made to reach a stand ard approved by that Other Self. A Pittsburg woman,in court proceed ings against her husband, alleges that he posted in his house such rules as these: That he should be head of the house, that he should handle all the money, that he should hire and dis charge all the servants, that the mem bers of his wife's family should not be permitted to enter the house, and that in correcting the children no pick handles, rolling pins or sadirons should be used. No man with a spark of affection in his bosom would thus dare attempt to relieve his wife of all worry and household cares, and leave her nothing to do but dress up and go visiting, of course, and instead of turn ing him out on the cold world, the long-suffering wife should have him safely locked up as a warning to other brutal husband*. GAME OF LIFE. This life Is but a game of cards Which mortals have to learn: Each shuffles, cuts and deals the pack And each a card must turn. Some bring a high card to the top, While others bring a low- Some hold a hand quite flush ot trumps. While others none can show. When playing some throw out the ace, The counting cards to save; Some nlay the deuce, and some the ten, But many play the knave- When hearts are trumps we play tor love And pleasure rules the hour. No thoughts of sorrow check our joy In beauty's rosy bower; We nance, we sing, sweet verses make, Our cards at random play, And while the trumpremains at top, The game s a holiday. When diamonds chance to crown the top And players stake their gold And heavy sums are bet and lost By gamblers, young and old: Intent on winning, each his game Doth watch with eager eve, That he may see his neighbor’s cards And get them on the sly. When clubs are trumps look out for war On ocean and on land, For terrible deeds are often done When clubs are held in hand; Then lives are staked instead of gold— The dogs of war are freed In our dear country, and we see That clubs have got the lead. Last game of ah is when the spide Is turned by hand of Time— He alway deals the closir g game In every age and clime; Nomatterhow much each man wins. Nor how much each may save, A dusky spade will finish up, And dig the gambler’s grave. CHRISTMAS, 1900 God bless all givers and their gifts, And all the giftless too. And help them by whatever shifts Their Bindly will to do. When seasons, which our hearts expand Our purses lall to fill. A word, a smile, a clasp of hand Shall carry our good wl’l, Let him who hath his plenty share, And him who lacks, his lack, Give, each one, what he may, nor care What recompense comes back. If only love his heart shall swell And kindness guide his hand, His Christmas he shall keep as well As any in the land. Out greed I Out guile I Out jealousy I Out envy I Out despair. Come hope I Come faith I Come charity ’ And ease the pains of care. Come, Christmas, with thy message dear, And all thy gentle mirth, To teach thatlove shall cast out fear, And peace shall reign on earth. —Edwin S. Martin, in Life. ■PITY and beauty most beautiful thing, in the world, is the baby, all dimples and joy. The most pitiful thing is that same baby, thin and in pain.

Rheumatism Cured in 24 Hours. T. J. B’ackmore. of Haller & Black more, Pittburg, Pa., says: “A short time since I procured a bottle of MYS TIC CURE. It got me out the house in twenty-four hours. I took my bed with Rheumatism nine months ago and the MYSTIC CURE is the only medi cine that did me any good. I had five of the best physicians in the city, but I received very little relief from them. I know the MYSTIC CURE to be what it is representd and take pleasure in recommending it to other poor suffer es. 8 >ld by E. J. Eldridge, Druggist, Americus, Ga.

Tburness of Wills Creek Coal Co , Buffalo, 0., writes: “I have been afflicted with kidney and bladder trou ble for years, passing gravel or stones, with excruciating pain. Other medi cines only gave relief. After taking Foley’s Kidney Cure the result was surprising. A. few ddses started the brick dust, like tine stones, etc., and now I have no pain across my kidneys and I feel like a new man.
