the army investigating committee that
hazing meant taking the conceit out of

James J. Hill, President of the Great
Northern Railroad, says ships can be
built more cheaply in this country than

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

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

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

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
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
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.
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.
The dimples and joy have

It is fat that is gone; gone
