LOVE 'THAN MEN? love more than a marriage which re first joyous rap husband or the estion asked one from the point of is better and loves a man she g for his sake. her husband be to think of any d. quick; the time tji e wife utilizes to help make his life more happy. I know men who really love their wives and yet do not show it. The light of romance is hidden. It takes a lot to rouse it, but then it reveals the adoration that won their brides. That is the secet of some men's love. They hide it. They cannot help it. It is part of their nature; and this reserve is put down to their lack of feeling. There are women whose nature is just the same. Every person loves in a different way. We all know the story of the man who, after twenty years of mar riage, went home one day and kissed his wife. She run and tearfully con fided to a neighbor that her husband. had gone out of his mind! Is she right? - 0o The chief drawback to smoking for women is stated to be the effect it has on the voice and throat. • I - m • ' A Special Purchase and Sale of 1000 Dresses .i Friday and Saturday THESE LOVELY NEW DRESSES CONSIST OF SAM PLES AND MANUFACTURER'S SURPLUS STOCKS WHICH WERE PURCHASED BY OUR MR.

At a meeting of the Police Jury March 12, 1883 the following resolu tion was offered by Mr. David and unanimously adopted: "Resolved, that a committee of three be appointed by the President to wait upon the Mayor of the city to request him to make some arrange ment by which stock running' at large may be prevented from passing through the building occupied by the City Council into the Court House yard." The City Council were given the use of the old court house recently demolished through which animals would pass into the square, (at that time enclosed by a fence), going in at the front and passing through the back door. The resolution must have caused some unpleasantness as short ly after the city rented an old house nearly opposite and established its headquarters therein. Those were days when cattle roam ed where fancy led them, generally where grocers' vegetables were dis played at doors and sidewalks and spent sleeping hours in front of dry goods establishments to the utter dis gust of employees whose duty it was to clean up in the morning. Those were days too, when merchants and clerks found relief only in loud and prolonged profanity. He was a re ligious person, indeed, who could con trol his language when cows made raids on his displayed wares, perhaps when he was busiest waiting on cus tolers. Finally to abate such nuisance the City Council passed an ordinance fix ing zones from which cattle were to be excluded and the lines of demark ations were drawn in such manner that every councilman's home, no matter where located, was left out l - side the cow limits. Such a howl was raised however, at the zigzag man ner in which the lines were drawn that the Council was compelled to extend them so as to embrace the! entire corporation. Should an old-timer be heard now a-days using languages unfitted and offensive to ears polite; to prevailing mnorality and refinement, excuses should be made as he acquired the habit under great provocation; when, were employees not watchful, cows not only fed on goods outside butt would even enter the premises to snatch a cabbage or other succulent vegetable or a bunch of bananas while goats feasted on costly fabrics when the merchant was off his guard. Those were days when every fam ily owned a cow which was fed at the expense of others. Good old care free days. The only labor in keeping a cow was to milk. She would secure her own feed. Wicked days when "dam those cows" was more frequent ly heard than prayers or hymns. It is not recorded that the Mayor paid attention to the demand of the Police Jury. He may have thought it unwise to interfere with recognized privileges of cows as each had an owner and each owner was a voter. 0 THE LENGTH OF SKIRTS. They may be "wearing 'em higher in Hawaii," and they certainly are wearing them longer in Paris, but the question for us is how are they go ing to do it here? For once Fashion is giving us con siderable freedom in the matter, let ting us suit our individual figures and the use of the garment. In general skirts are still short for street, longer for the home, and to the instep or ev en trailing for evening and dress af fairs. "Say it with Subscriptions." "Say it with Subscriptions."
