Over-restraint in a system pernicious; Over-indulgence much evil hat done; Dut boys are less apt to be, ugly and vicious If given a season for innocent fun. Give the boys room to spread themselves over; Widen their henzon broaden their scope; Tempt not the lad to become a wild rover Hy an endeavor to tighten the rope. Manhood will soon put an end to their folly. Sorrow and grief will embitter their cup; Youth Is the time to be careless and jolly: Give the boys room, and a chance to grow up. Birds from their nests In the wildwood are flying Hither and thither a rapturous throng; Katrerly, gladly their pinions trying. And higher extending their flight and their song. Out in the fields amid nature's dominions Gaining an insight to wonderful things, Ifree as the birds on aerial pinions. Give the boys room to develop their wings. Stunt not their growth by tyrannical notions; Patiently bear with their mirth and their noise ; Let them give vent to their Joyous emotions. Always rememb'nng that "boys will be boyc." Give the boys room for their proper enjoyment; Give the boys room for expansion of thought; Give all their faculties fitting employment; Give the boys room to grow up as they ought.

They said she was absurdly com- mon place; that she was one of the homeliest women they ever saw, or mai uie i.om ever matte; mat sue nau I I . . 1 I rnucn iuimiiiisuiihkiji uuw biiu managed to get on in the world when sue naa to go out in it to earn her hv- ing. because the world is full of sharp- era and she would trust any one; that, taken altogether, there was really no particular use for her in the world. Yet it was amazing how they could not get on without her. Under the cir cumstances, knowing her uselessness. it was strange that they must have her w uo an me nine nouscnoiu tilings . i -i- .i i.t , i wncn hiic was at nomc, aim me Keep ing or the books while she nail the time in the evenings, after a hard uay s worK. Ami it was remarkable, too, how she kept her good nature through it all. But that was Marty s strong, point her unfailing good nature. it was Aiarty, come here, or Marty, jro there, or "Marty, I want you." from her mother and father and sisters. Nobodv could spin a top like Marty; uolody could smooth out the many wrinkles in the home machinery M Marty could; nobody could read the evening papers to her father as she did; nobody could and nobody want ed to do the mending and the mar keting and the planning for the cheap est and most appetizing table fare. That it took any brains to do this they did not seem to consider. That it might bo a tiresome duty with her daily duties they took no thought. It was Mart-; and Marty, somehow, was made for such things; she was good for nothing else. They lived in the city, Marty's people did, and it is not the eauiest tiling in the world to live on a small salary in the city. They had a flat one of the cheapest they could get to nccommo- date their rather large family, and they had to pay considerable, even for that. Then it was a matter of some moment to feed such a family of growing young people; they must have nourishing food. and wanted plenty of it, which wasn't always easy to accomplish. And they must also bo clothed. This last was, perhaps the hardest of all, for they Bcenied to fairly grow out of their dresses and their pants; and it wnsn't easy either to make the clothes of one child do for the next in size, because each one wore his or ber clothes until there was absolutely nothing left to wear. So she mended them and tried to keep things running no that the old eat girls nnd boys coultl have new things before the old wore out, so that the old could go to the younger chil dren. It took a good deal of her time, and she had little enough time, but she wrs glad enough to do it, in order to help her parents Mho had load enough on tlmr shouulers without worrying about that. In return for all this what tl id she get? Well, in return she expecttd and wished nothing. That she was doing any thing but her duty she did not think; ami she "would perhaps have been greatly surprised if she had been rfVerd nr thinsr for her lovincr work. To be sure she did get dreadfully tired of tho whole thing sometimes, and wished she might throw it all aside and have the pleasant times somo of tho girls had; but this was only when she was unusually tired and had had a hard day. She wasn't at all perfect, and she never pretended to be; she went to church, and had a class in the Kmidav school sometimes when tho corps of teachers was low; but she had no thought of being other than a most unsatisfactory person in the busy world. ' And so things went on as things always will go on till the end of time, and Marty was no nearer the wish of her heart than she was at the day of V.r hit-th. Fm- Mart v's exeat wish was ..x - - ' to be loved and to know that she was loved, and it seemed that life was never to have this sweeties for her. Not that it made her unhappy at all," but it would have been such a comfort to have known some one cared for her and whether or not she rnmc home or never should come home. "It's a pretty tough thing is life," her father said, and Marty fully be lieved it. Still, like all young people, she wished to live; and therein lies the mystry that has puzzled many a wise head since the days of Solomon. And one day the mystery was solved for her. She had had a particularly hard day and was going home pretty well tired out anil rattier cross. Every thing seemed to have gone wrong that day. She had made mistakes and been repri manded by the head man and told that if the same thing ever again happened she must be prepared to tind another J place. She was crying a trine as she walked along; it sort of eased her mind and would help her to be at ease and her self t home. Marty was always trrnk jpgof what they would say at home and planning to have all things go smooth ly there. he wns feeling sick, some, fcow. and not like herself. Her head .ached and o did her back. Once sha Mum ier falling from faintness. and horror came over her. What was the rn itter? was not in the habit if fwiing U-k, 9 l" with almost perfect health since she could remember. As the feeling did not abate, but grew more and more severe, she stopped at a drug store and got a half dozen quinine pills. I believe I am getting malaria," she said, laughing wearily to herself. "To think of my feeling sick." But it wasn't malaria that had at tacked Marty. She had never been even pretty, as the world judges beauty, and now the crowning stroke had fallen. Marty, the homeliest, most absurd of the largo family, had the small-pox. "As though she had not been abother and worry to us all her life, but that this should fall upon us. It is really too much to be borne," said her mother. Ami I suppose all the others will catch it from her. As to her beauty. she never had any to mourn over, but Kate and Minnie ought to have made their fortunes by their faces, and now all will be ruined by this ridiculous girl." That sho could not help having taken the disease did not seem to occur to them. She had always been a bother, and the crowning: wrong was done them when she caught the disease. She was taken to the hospital at once, and the children thoroughly disin fected, but the anxious mother could not be satisfied that the darlings of her heart and life had not been griev ously wronged by their eldest sister who should have thought enough of their welfare not to have taken the disease. 'But some people are always sel fish," she added, and' no one contra- dieted her. And Marty? The physician said she had been overworked and had not cnourrh strength to rail v . from the Uhock to her svstem. Had she even ordinary strength she would have re- covered, for she had the illness com . ...... . . pnratively ligrht; but sne uaa no strength and she died. she died as she had lived alone from. all love or care save such as was given bv tho nu,-Ses: and thev. busy as they wcre found time often to sit with her and bring her some little delicacy as she could eat, for, they said, she was one of the most uncomplaining little bodies thev had ever had. and had gut.h a way cf thanking you with her w je dark eves that it was a pleasure - When they at home heard of her ueath thev cried a little and said if it iaj ony been any thinsrbutthe disease it was thev would have rrone to her htm - inl. hut. thev must not. exnr.se. the others; and time went on and none of the others caught it, and all went on well But, some way, in spite of all this. there was a vacancy never filled, and a want so long felt that lite grew harder than usual, and household matters did not glide so smoothly, and Marty was missed. "I wouldn t have believed it. her mother said, one day. "She was such a homely, untalented child. She did have a wav of helping you along with whatever you wcre doing, and taking up little things that no one else would be likely to think of because they were so trivial; but I never dreamed that I would miss her so. Yes." her father said, "I always had a tender spot for Marty. Slue didn't seem to be of any particular service. and they thought that all girls should be of some special use; but I begin to think it is well for some women of the household to have no particular talent. Somebody has got to look after the homely tilings as well as the beautiful things of home, and Marty was the one who did this in our home. It don't seem like home without her. I always did think a good deal of her." What a mockery it was! They cared for her when she was beyond all care for earthly things and let her starve when a few words would have sent her out to her work with such a light heart. But so the world goes on and will go on doubtless to the end of time; and hearts starve for the words they never hear, and the love is given after they have gone from us. It is the mystery of life. It can never be solved while life shall last. J. A". Ludlurn, in Ladies' Home Journal. NOISY, GENEROUS BOYS. With All Their Faults and Shortcoming We Love Them Still. God bless the boys! They need a mother's prayers, and tears, and thoughts, to help them the noisy, clumsy, generous, fun-loving boys, who slam the door when j'our head aches. leave their tools on the floor for you to pick up, pinch the kittens' tails to make a little more noise, and kick the other boys under the table at dinner time, vet are ready to walk a mile In the rain to get you a plant or a doctor. and will sit up at night to keep fires burning to make poultices, if any thing is the matter with any member of the household. How sensitive they are to a word of blame, and the tongue of young America runs away with his discretion, but let another fellow say the same words of his mother and sis- ter. and won't he pitch into himP I once heard a boy say to his mother. "That's a lie!" when down in his own conscience lie knew she was speaking the truth. I knew she was cut to the heart by the unmanly, unboyish words and tones, and I thought it would be a good thing to get some other boy to say the words to her, and see what he would do. I am ouite sure he would i - knock him down, and quite sure, too. that he would deserve it. God bless the boys ! How hard they are to manage aright, how quick to re- sent a fancied slight, and jealous of their rights. But one has to remember, with all their faults, that they are in a transition state, that the "surplus steam" must be worked off. and. thank God, that is not to be done by evil methods. Tatience, then, mother, there is hope that the noisy lads will learn hv- battling with the world, that a mother's heart is really their home that' a mother's love never fails and when trials come that her oonstant, patient affection endures through the darkest hour and how well the poet knew this when he wrote I remember the gleams and glooms that dart Arms the schoolboy's brain.

BOWSER. Mr. Bowser Take m Tarn Among; Dry Ooodn svnd Crockery Store. I had mentioned in a casual way that we neded some dishes, a new carpet. and some table linen, and that I must got down town and buy them, when Mr. Bowser came home at two o clock one afternoon and said : Well, are you all readyP" For what?" W hy, to go down ana buy those I tilings. I But I didn't know you wanted to I go. lnaeeu. i wisn you woman u w a -a w 1 4 4 I Oh, you do! Are you ashamed to be seen with me on the street?" I "You know I'm not. I'm afraid you you Well, what?" 'You'll jaw folks and get into a quarrel." Mrs. Bowser, are you getting soft in the heaa.' Jaw folks: tret into a quarrel! Humph! Are you coming?" W e first visited the carpet store. I had not yet made up my mind whether to buy brussels or velvet, nor whether to get light or dark colors. I expected to take a chair and have the clerk roll down about fiftv pieces of each kind, and to be all of two hours making up my mind. One clerk ran to place chairs for us. A second arranged the window curtains, and a third inquired of Mr. Bowser: "Did you wish to look at some Car nets?" i 'Did I come up here to buy oys- I ters?" demanded Mr. Bowser. "Ah uui! Light or dark colors?' "Light." "But the dark are all the style, you know.'.' "I don't know any thing of the sort! There are plenty of white horses and houses, and white shirts and hats; and I don't know why light carpets shouldn't be fashionable. Roll down this piece." ."Yes, sir; but you won't like it. This dark pattern is what Mrs. Governor Smith selected for her front bed-room. "Yes. Well, I may get that for my horse barn later on. Send up a man to measure the room, and give me that light pattern "Why, Mr. Bowser !" I said You haven't selected already P" "Certainly." "But we we" "Fivo minutes is enough for any one to select a carpet, Mrs. Bowser. We want body-brussels, and we want a light ground. That's all there is to it. We will now go over and buy the table linen." "But can't I have time to look around ?" "Time ! What do you want of time ? You want three linen table-cloths and two dozen napkins, the money to pay for 'em. is desired ?" "But it's so sudden." "So are earthquakes, here." We ve got What more We'll go in Wo entered a dry-goods store and sat down to the linen counter. A young man came forward to wait on ns, and after being told what was wanted, he queried "So you want some real linen. Well, here is something I can recommend." "Is that all linen ?" Yes, sir." "Is it ?" asked Mr. Bowser, as he turned to me. I didn't think it was, but I told Mr Bowser to let it go. It was the custom in all dry-goods store to lie about such things and no one thought or raising a row. Madame." said Mr. Bowser, as he took the cloth over to a motherly old lady, "is this all linen?" -.No. sir, it s half cotton!' she re plied, after an inspection. "Where s the proprietor of this tore?" he demanded of the clerk. "I I'll call him, sir." The proprietor came up. "Is that linen?" asked Mr. Bowser "It passes for linen, sir." "If you put a cow's horns and tail on a horse, he'd pass for a cow. wouldn't he? Sir. this looks to me like a petty swindle, and one you ought to be ashamed of!" The proprietor began to blow up the clerk, and tho clerk said he d resign. and as we got out-doors I penned Mr Bowser into a doorway and said: I'll never, never dare enter this store again! "Don t want you to. I he man is a liar and the clerk lied by his instruc tions. We'll try another The next store was crowded and as we reached the linen counter it was to find every stool occupied, I tried to get Mr. Bowser out, anticipating trou ble, but unfortunately at that moment one lady observed to another: "Dear me, but this is the third after noon 1 ve come down town to buy a table-cloth, and haven't got suited vet," "And I want four crash towels and I've been all over town twice," replied the other. "Here you!" snapped Mr. Bowser to th ; clerk, "are you busy? "Waiting on these ladies, sir." "H ive they bought any tiling?" "No, sir. " "Are they going to?" "I I don't know." "Well, i ve no time to fool away We want three linen table-cloths and two dozen napkins, The ladies arose in great indignation Each one of them gave me a look that pierced me to the heart, and each one gave Air. bowser a iook wmen ougnt to have shortened him two feet, hut which had no apparent effect. In seven minutes we liatl found what we wanted, paid the bill, and were ready to go. The clerk acted a bit sulky, and Mr. Bowser was setting ready to give him a blast, when I appealed to him to hold his peace. I told him it was the cus tom for several thousand ladies to come down town every afternoon to shop. and that shopping consisted of prom enading up ' and down to show their suits off to a lot of well-dressed loafers. and entering the stores and taking an hour aud a half to buy a sixpence worth of lace or ribbon. I he clerk melted a little at the same moment, and I got Mr. Bowser out without another erup tion. "Now for the ilislies, he said as we got out, and we went to a crockery store. My heart sank as I saw the place crowded with ladies. We halted be side one w ho was saying to a clerk : "And so that tooth-pick holder is six cents ?" Only six. madarue." "How very cute !" ' "Yes, it is." And it is imported ?" "It is." How vert", very charming ! This is the one I saw yesterday, is it ?" "Oh. certainly." "Dear rue. but I wish I could make Pp my mind -whether to .'.ike it ci not- You see, we may move in the spring, and if we moved, you know " "I want about fifteen dollars worth of dishes." interrupted Mr. Bowser. Yes, sir, in just a moment. "How many of those tooth-pick hold ers have you got ?" "Only nve." "I'll take the lot; and now corne and wait on me, I want twelve cups and saucers, twenty-four plates, three or four platters, two tureens and a fish platter. The lady turned about and killed me ac&a with one long iook. inen sne . a 1 mi V looked at the back of Mr. Bowser s neck and tried to murder htm, but he would not fall. Then she returned and killed me over again, and gave her shoulders a twist and walked out of the store. She had hardly departed when a fresh arrival asked our clerk. busy though he was, to show her somo teaspoons. "Madame," said Mr. Bowser, "do you wisli to buy some spoons?" "Perhaps." "Do you know whether yon do or not?" Why I I will look at them." "Very well; you sit down and wait until I am through buying. I came to buy, know what I want, and shall pay casli down." I was killed again, arid if looks could have crushed Mr. Bowser, he'd liavo been a mangled corpse in ten seconds. We were only thirteccn minutes buy ing tho dishes, and as we got out ami reached the car. Mr. Bowser said "Mrs. Bowser, when you come down town do you go fooling around tho stores and obstructing doorways and crosswalks like the women we have seen to-daj'?" "I I guess I do." "And end up by buying four cents worth of something?" - "Yes; it is the custom." "And Mould it have taken you three weeks to buy what we bought in two hours?" "Yes, sir." "Then I'll write this very day to an idiot asylum and see if I can squeeze 3ou in! It s no wonder every oiner home in Detroit is full of scandal, and every other husband wants a divorce!'' Detroit Free Press. BAD-WORD SOCIETIES. Why They SJionltl lie Kneouraged Instead of Itelng Laughed At. The "Bad-Word Societies" that have sprung up lately in the New England schools are by no means to be laughed at. They may do a great deal of good, and that good is of a nature that generally lies beyond the reach of teachers. There are fe playgrounds attached to boys' schools in this country where language is not constantly used which would grieve and astound the mothers of those who utter and of those who hear them. The "Rules" of the Bad-Word Soci ety are usually not written down, but they are something like this: "One cent fine for every bail word spokenf every boy to report his own bad words to the treasurer, and pay up; no tell ing of any other boy's bad words; tha money to go to the school library." This is simple and practical. Per haps, the scheme might be enlarged a little so as to include the grosser forma of bad grammar, such as, "I done it," "them cabbages," and "you was." It is bighty absurd that the boys who have been going to a grammar school for years should violate the most rudi mental laws of grammar every time they speak ten consecutive words. But the main point is to destroy the habit of polluting the mouth and cor rupting the heart by the use of word which are properly called " bail. Every boy knows what they are, for no one can keep bejond the sound of them. They pollute the air of every street and are heard. more or less, wherever and whenevei there is a company of boys playing to gether. They partly cause the dread that mothers feci when they see their little sons going for the hist time to a , , gchooi; TQ nlothers watch their fa , dt wrture Wlth :l mixture of pride, pleasure and apprehension, anil turn away, from the window at last with a sigh, because they know that few boys older yet realize what a duty they owe to younger ones in the way of a good example. There is one reason for the suppres sion of bad words which noboy can know any thing about. It is this: we seldom forget the evil things we learn in our school-days. They cling to the memory, in spite of all we can do to forget them. They return to us some times in our dreams, in our most s:i cred moments, in sickness, in scenes the most remote from the horrid rem iniscence. It is, this awful fact that makes it so Important to keep the young memory free from every word and thought that savors of the impure. Victor Hugo was thinking of this when lie wrote his little poem on" the sul- ject, urging children to "guard their joy and guard their purity," since 'the mightiest force is an innocent heart."
