One sometimes hears a deal of non sense about the danger of creating a prejudice against religion In the mind of a child by . making him, attend church once a week. The danger would seem to be about one-tenth as great as that of arousing a prejudice against education by- sending him to school twice a day. In both cases the remedy lies in the good sense of the parents and their estimate of the value of religion and education care fully instilled Into the child's mind. The strength of the church has been in the old-fashioned pew, with father at one end and mother at the other, and a stairway of more or less restless children. From that pew have gone but the upright, devout, consecrated men and women who have loved the church and maintained her worsen and done her work !n their several generations. For the sake of the church, and especially for the sake of the children, let It be restored. If it be impossible for the children tc attend both Sunday school and the church service, this writer would by c'l roenr-) tench then the catccfclsn at home and bring thtm to church that they may learn to worship God in the congregation of his people.

Simple cases of hiccough are often relieved by such measures as sucking ice or taking salt and vinegar. Pull ing the tongue forward and hold ing It for some time is an effective procedure. Sometimes obstinate hiccough ia re lieved when the paUent is strong by having him bang with the arms ex tended and grasping some beam or pole, so that his feet do not touch the floor. With all the abdominal muscles tense, have him hold his breath as long as possible. The spelling "hiccough" la recent, being a combination of the syllables "hio" and the latter term of "cough." which is without either physiological or etymological basis; tL. pronuncia tion, with perhaps the rarest excep tion, Is still that of the older form "hiccup," earlier given variously as hlckup," "hickupsnickup," "hlckoo," "hlckcock," "hichcock" and "hlckett," with quasi diminishing suffixes ack, etc.; but the "hick," a syllable aptly expressive of the spasmodic sound pro duced by the conditions giving rise to the particular disturbance, is found in all references to the origin of the term which the writer has been able to ob tain. The term singultus is rarely used. New York Medical Journal. HINTS TO THE HANDICAPPED Writer In Atlantic Monthly Telia Them How They May Make Best of Life. Grow up as fast as you can. Culti vate the widest interest you can, and cherish all your friends. Cultivate Bome artistic talent, for you will find it the most durable of satisfactions, and perhaps one of the surest means of livelihood as well. Achievement is, of course, on the knees of the gods; but you will at least hsve the thrill of trial, and, after all, not to try Is to fail. Taking your disabilities for granted, and assuming constantly that they are being taken for granted, make your social intercourse as broad and as constant as possible. Do not take the world too seriously, nor let too many f-.l&l conventions oppress you. Keep sweet your sense of hu mor, and above all do not let any morbid feelings of Inferiority creep into your soul. You will find yourself sensitive enough to the sympathy of others, and if you do not find persons who like you and are willing to meet you more th a half way. It will be be-' cause you have let your disability narrow your vision and shrink up your soul. It will be really your own fault, and not that of your circumstances In a word, keep looking outward ; look out eagerly for those things that in terest yon. for. persons who will In terest you rnd be friends with you, for new interests and for opportunb ties to express yourself.

Though it seems rather a pity to chatter romantic illusions an myths in a. world from which romance (of that kind, anyway) is fading rapidly, yet it must be said that there are only two old, useless rifles in the hands of the tribe, and at the time of our visit only two bows and a couple of quivers full of arrows, not one of which was headed. And now they haven't thos, for we bought tbem for souvenirs. Among themselves, at any rate, however they may have behaved to 6trangers in the past, the Seris were as kindly and even affectionate a lot of people as I have ever had the good fortune to encounter. Never did we see a mother or father slap a child. Never was anger displayed or irrita tion. They were continually sharing with each other the little gifts we made them. Really, you know, when you tee a group of alleged cannibals sharing chewing-gum (the first thy had ever tasted) from mouth to mouth and enjoying themselves hugely, re spect for travelers' tales of blood and thunder goes down a pes or tvo.-' Michael Williams in Outing.

"1 see here," explained the first with a beaming face, "that Mr. B., who died last week, ha left his en tire fortune to various charitable enterprises. This will be a surprise to his many relatives. It Is to me a glad surprise in my case, for I am the pastor of a church to which he has left $10,000." The second man looked at the arti cle and his face, too, became wreath ed in smiles.
