i Blessings not vouchsafed to the dwell
ers in mansions, often come to the so
journers in homes, and the wanderer
from its sacred precincts, as portrayed
in the printed lines of the old song of
“Home, Sweet Home,”
“From allurments abroad, which but
(latter the eye,
My unsatisfied heart turns and says with
a sigh, Home, sweet, sweet home.
Be it ever so humble, there is no place
like homo.”
i How these lines of living light shine
| on the pathway of the weary and heavy
laden, making the foot pa.hs easier to
find and pleasanter to follow, throughout
the varieties and vicissitudes of the jour
ney of human hfe: all of which are unseen
lin "marble "halls,” and unknown in
richly appointed “establishments,” where
only fashion rules the hour, and folly
crowds home affections to the wall;
where veiled faces and aching hearts
tell of gilded shams, and fields of deso
; lation and decay of the “life that is worth
the living.”
# * *
A German philosopher lias poetically
and truthfully said. The two most beau
tiful things m the universe are the starry
heavens over our heads and the semi
ment of duty in the human soul.” Few
objects are richer for the contemplation
of the truly high man, titan is a
young woman who lives, acts speaks
and exerts her powers for an enlighten
ing conviction of duty, in whose soul
the voice of duty is the voice of God.
In such women there is a mighty force
of moral power. Though they may be
as gentle as a lamb, or retiring anil
modest in their demeanor, there is in
them what commands respect, and
what enforces esteem, they are the
strong women. The sun is not truer in
its course than they are in theirs. They
are as reliable as the everlasting rocks.
Every day finds them in the same beau
tiful. steady and moral firmness. Men
look to them with confidence that knows
no doubt. They are fearless and brave,
and they have but to know their duty,
to he ready to engage in it, and though
tnen may laugh and sneer at them,
though the world may frown and threaten
thev will keep at it. No character is
complete until it is swayed and elevated
by genuine! piety. No heart is fully
happy until it is imbued with the spirit
of piety. No life is all that it may and
should be until it is baptized in the
waters of piety. This divine grace of
the soul should be sought bv every
young woman and cultivated with the
most assiduous care, for without it she
is destitute ot the highest beauty and
divinest charm and power of woman
4r * *
This is tile ladies’ age. There is no
mistaking that fact, and in spite of
fate she is going to plav no second fiddle
in tile near future. The ladies, bless
them, can do anything now -days but
fish, and they are already wonderfully
proficient in that art even—as far as
suckers are concerned. The ladv never
says can’t except when she means won’t,
and when she says “I will,” you can bet
that she is going to do it even if she has
to sell the family Bible in order to do so.
The woman of today is a different being
from the woman of fifty years ago. The
shrinking, trembling, heroines of Thack
ery and Dickens have disappeared. It is
far better that it is so. For my part. 1
prefer the Becky Sharps to the Amelia
Sedleys. Not only has the woman of
today shaken oil' those old time weak
ened, not only has she assumed a stern
independence, which to some is well
nigh disheartening, hut she has made
her determination known to the world,
has waved it defiantly in our faces in the
shape of certain signs and symbols which
have a tendency to add emphasis to her
emancipation. Another thing: A woman
can go shopping and save at least a hun
dred dollars in spending titty. Oh, in
deed, it is wonderful how much the av
erage woman can save when she goes
shopping. It is really. She is so
saving. She would gladly spend five
dollars for the mere pleasure of saving
fifty cents. Then site can make fancy
work. It is simply wonderful what the
average woman can do in7h.it direction.
She will embroider a dolly for a church
fair, using fifty cents worth of material,
and at least a week’s solid labor and she
will be delighted when she hears that
some generous purchaser bought it for
75 cents on account of the good cause.
We hear a great deal of complaint front
the women about the poor wages paid,
and the low value set on woman’s work.
But, my dear woman, it is vou who have'
set the value on your labor. When a
woman is willing to spend three months’
spare time in order to save a few cents
a yard by making her own carpet, is it
any wonder that her labor is considered

The home influences is either a bless
ing or a curse, either for good or for
evil. It cannot be neutral. In either
case, it is mighty, commencing witli our
birth; going with us through life, cling
ing to us in death, and reaching into the
eternal world. The specific influences
of husband, wife, or of parent andjehild, of
brother and sister, of teacher and pupil
united and harmoniously blended, con
stitute the home influence. Like the
calm, deep stream, it moves on in its
silent but overwhelming power. It strikes
its roots deep into the human heart, and
spread its branches wide over our whole
being. Like the lilly that braves the
tempest and “the Alpine flower that
leans its cheek on the bosom of eternal
snow,” it is exerted amid the wildest
storms of hfe and breathes a softening
spell in our bosom even when a heartless
world is freezing up the fountains of
sympathy and love. It holds the empire
of the heart and rules the life. Our
habits, too, are lormed under the mould
ing power of home The “lender twig”
is there bent, the spirit shaped, princi
ples implanted, and the whole character
is formed until it becomes a habit. The
gray haired father who walks in the sec
ond infancy, feels the traces of his child
hood home, in his spirit, desires and
habits. The most illustrious statesmen
] and eloquent ministers owe their great
j ness to the lostering influences of their
; homes. Napoleon knew and felt this
* when he said, “What France wants is
good mothers, and then you may lie
sure that France will have good sons.”
* * *
Whatever our place alloted to us by
Providence, that for us is the post of
duty. God estimates us not by the posi
tion that we are in, but by the way in
which we till it.
I* * *
A beautiful person is the natural form
of a beautiful soul.

In seeking the good ol others, we find
our own.

The valves of the carboy, which was be

the Capital.
(Special Correspondence to the Citizen.)
Washington, July 22. 1!M li.
Representative Therou E. Catlin, of
Missouri, in a statement characterized as
a '‘monumental fraud" the action of the
House Committee on Elections in voting
to recommend that he Ire deprived of his
seat in the House. The committee de
cided by a vote of 6 to 3 to report that
Mr. Catlin had not been properly elected,
because it was discovered that his rela
tives had spent approximately <13,000 in
his campaign, contrary to the. State law.
Representative Catliu's campaign ex
penditures aggregated more than #13.000.'
It was contended by his counsel that
much of the money was used without the
candidate’s knowledge. The Missouri
law permits the expenditure of #662.
Represetative Catlin is the son of a mil
lionaire tobacconist of St. Louis. He is
serving his tirst term in Congress. Simul
taneously with the vote ousting him came
the announcement of his engagement to
marry a Washington woman.

Senator Root had been suggested as

House stating that Congress so far had *
appropriated $3,451,925 for the Philippine
Islands. The House in a resolution had S
asked to know the total expense result- I

The President stated that aside from I
the direct appropriations it is impossible f
to eslimate accurately the expenses in

traded session putting the finishing
touches on the majority report regarding

to the House with the report. This will
include proposed amendments to the
Sherman Anti-Trust law and the Inter

the report will be submitted to the 1 louse

Severe criticism of Government meth
ods of erecting public buildings is con
tained in the report of the House Com
mittee on Expenditures in public build
ing which Chairman Cyrus Cline, of Indi
ana, suuiv tted to the House. The com
mittee points out extravagance and was .
and the possibilities of fraud after making
it clear that its investigations were made
with no desire to discover any scandal in
the public service.
In a sharp clash on the floor of the
House Representation Austin, of Ten

for having insinuated tha he was sup
porting a bill for granting the erection 0!

William E. Lorimer. with the plain title
of ex-Representative, left this city bound
for Chicago and home. He will make
the entire trip in his big touring car and
expects to arrive Thursday. 1 lis friends
have planned a reception.
William J. Cooke, of Chicago, accom

a devoted henchman of the one time near
Senator. He was one of the two Talt men
elected in Illinois to theßepublican nom

Lorimer’s old Congressional district.
Lorimer’s time was occupied until leav
-1 ing in correcting his 12-hour speech in
1 self-defense. He desired that this should
(be absolutely accurate. It was printed
in the Congressional Record. He also
supervised the packing up of his personal
