In the old days when we were all
taught that doing was far more import
ant than looking, we were fed on such
moral truths as "Pretty is as pretty
does." "Pride eoeth before a fall." "If
you will net as well as you look, you
will be all right.'" These all contained
a eerni of truth, but th« inferences de
ducted were wrong. One may be too
good to live, and yet if you do not look
nice, your chances for canonization
are small. The real philosophy is stated
thus by a woman in the Chicago Mail:
A young woman says that she is haying
a ''seething argument" with her friend
concerning the importance of personal
appearance in winning social and busi
ness success. She writes:
"Nevermind which side I stand on,
will the woman's department give its
opinion as ammunition for this small
Go in for timely dressing up to the
line of modishness. To go beyond that
line is to risk becoming loud or dowdy.
Of course "dress" should be suitable
for the occasion. This dainty apprecia
tion of what should be worn at certain
times and at certain places is one of
the paramount elements of good taste.
But the attire, whether for home duties,
visiting, banqueting or working, should
be distinctly neat and in appropriate
'lhe woman who is slovenly, and
doesn't care a rap for th« looks of auy
thing, is usually the proprietor of sev
eral tales of woe, which bristle with all
sorts of bad luck. She is her own ex
terminator of whatever chances she
might have in business and social lines.
It is one of the awful pities when a
woman can not rig herself up to ad
vantage. When she would if she could,
andtfrn not, the result is usually a sac
rifice to her comfort and talent.
A girl said last week: "I get $8 a week

Mrs. Cleveland is very anxious to
move into the now country home out on
the Woodley Lane road, which the
president has leased for a term of years.
She has made several trips to the house,
which is now undergoing repairs, and
all of the alterations are superintended
by her. One of the largest and most
cheerful rooms on the second floor has
been s it apart as a nursery.
While living at Oak View Mrs. Cleve
land was very fond of sitting out under
the trees in a bi£ wicker chair reading
or knitting. One particularly large and
graceful elm which grew about fifty
yards from the house was known as
'"Mrs. Cleveland's tree," and there she
spent lons afternoons busy with fancy
work cr watching the president as he
grubbed about in the flower beds with a
short-handled hoe. Mrs. Cleveland is
very fond of llowers, and the White
house gardeners will be very glad to
semi some of their surplus stock out to
the country mansion to beautify the
lawns and drive-ways.

pleasure in driving about the country

There was to be a picnic at the lodge
Lhat afternoon and Cora had promised
to go.
"She'll never let me," Cora thought,
wielding the parlor duster with nervous
hands— "never! She's got on her blue
silk handkerchief, and don't I know
by experience that she wears it only
when she's feeling dismal and thinking
over all the troubles she ever had or
ever will have, and that she never wants
me to do anything when she's that
"There's a picnic at the lodge this
afternoon. Aunt Cecilia," she began,
"just a little impromptu affair. They
talked it up the other night at Bess
Lang's party, and I promised to go. Of
course 1 meant to speak to you first."
"Certainly !" said Aunt Cecilia. The
blue silk handkerchief was folded
around her plump neck in a peculiar
way. "You should have spoken to me
immediately. Who has invited you?"
"Mr. Pierce"— Cora raised her soft
eyes anxiously— "the young man who is
here prospecting for the Bryan Valley
railroad, you know. They are thinking
of putting a branch through here, and
Mr. Pierce has been here several times
this summer, lie wants to call, iind he's
coming this morning to see if it is all
rii. r ht about my going this afternoon, i

"Pierce?" said Aunt Cecilia. "One of
the West Gainesbro' Pierces?"
"1 don't know; presume not. No, I
think he's from "
"I know the West Gainesbro' Pierces

liberately—"root and branch — and 1
would no more allow a niece of mine to
associate vyith them— never mind, I will
not argue it, Cora; 1 know the Pierces.
I am grieved and displeased that you
have formed an acquaintance so un
pleasant to me, whom you should have
considered. 1 hope not to hear of an
other "
"But he isn't one of the Gainsbro'
Pierces?" Cora cried —"I'm sure he
isn't, Aunt Cecilia! I can't think of
the place he does come from, lie told
me, too. But, oh, Aunt Cecilia, he's so
gentlemanly and— nice !"
Helpless tears stood In her eyes. She
had not quite realized before how much
he had come to be to her — handsome,
bright-mannered Albert Pierce.
"1 desire you to have nothing more to
do with him," said Aunt Cecelia. "A
clandestine acquaintance of that kind,
Cora! lam astonished! We will end
this undesirable acquaintance here and
now. Cora. He is at the Lave House, I
presume. I will send Matthew there
with a note, it you will write it. My
niece cannot attend picnics with a
stranger, and a Gainesbro' Pierce."
Aiint Cecilia had the phaeton brought
around early that afternoon and called
to Cora.
Aunt Cecilia wore her blue silk hand
kerchief—that was enough. Perhaps,
yes surely, all things would come out
right somehow.
"If I'll go back and eet you a lace
fichu, Aunt Cecilia," she ventured,
"won't you put it on instead — instead
"This handkerchief does very well,"
Aunt Cecilia responded. 1 have had it
twenty-two years, and 1 wear it now
and then for old times' sake, Cora."
"Urn, yes," said Cora, patiently.
"What are you going to do with these
jugs, aunt? 1 '
"1 am going to have them filled with
boiled eider at Bently's cider mill,"
Aunt Cecilia rejoined. "
Never, never would Aunt Cecilia have
driven to Bently's mill for two jugs of
boiled cider if she had not been wear
ing her blue silk handkerchief for old
times' sake.
"Yes, Cora," said Aunt Cecilia, gloom
ily. "1 have had this handkerchief
twenty-two years this fall. I remember
perfectly how I came by it. Your Great
Uncle Godfrey hod a store in West
Gainesbro' and lived there— that is how
1 came to know the Pierces. Cora— and
he gave me this handkerchief. His store
burned that same winter, and the poor
man lost his sight only the next year.
Was it that year your Aunt Sarah died?
No, that was late the next spring. An
excellent woman your Aunt Sarah was.
She caught a terrible cold and it settled
on her lungs, and her death was painful
and lingering. The next year"

him as by a frightened fascination. Dan
was young and somewhat skittish in his
most sober moments.
He eyed the machine askant, whinny

trembling; and when its steam whistle
was suddenly blown he gave a neigh of
wild terror, threw up his head and hind
hoofs and dashed on up the road, swerv
ing dangerously near the ditch at the
right or left, as his frightened senses
prompted him, oblivious of all but his
foolish equine fears.
That moment seemed a lifetime to
Cora. The roadside shrubs rushed ir*
regularly past, the dust flew. Aunt
Cecilia was puliing frantically at tug
lines with not the slightest effect. They
would be overturned in the ditch and
hurt— perhaps killed.
"Upon my soul!" said Aunt Cecilia,
twenty seconds later.
Dan was stopped— caught by his bit
by a strong hand, whose possessor had
first broken his speed by springing into
his path and turning him aside.
The hand was not so strong, though,
but that it felt the powerful wrench;
the young man was pale and wincing.
His hat was in the dust, and some dark
curls lay very becomingly on his white
He was tall, broad-shouldered, strong

"Albert Pierce, madam. Don't thank

glad to have "been of service to you and

"Oh, Mr. Pierce!" Aunt Celilia echoed
mildly, studying him thoughtfully.

more smilingly, "Haven't I heard him

softening. "Yes, yes; I remember hear

queried abruptly, there being a slight

not accounted for by her fright, which
had passed over.
"I thought you would be at the pic

Minnesota's State Building to Be
Given Official Recognition.
Hon. John J. Furlong, of Austin, one
of Minnesota's world's fair commission
ers, was in the city yesterday. With
President Monfort, of the commission,
he called on Gov. Nelsou.
Incidentally, the matter of dedicat
ing the Minnesota building was consid
ered. The proposition has been, since
tue legislature cannot attend officially,
to have a semi-official dedication of the
magnificent state,building June 1. Now
it is proposed to dedicate about the 15th
of the present month. The Minnesota
Editorial association goes to Chicago on
the 14th, and interested parties consider
it would be appropriate to have the
dedicatory ceremonies occur while the
editors can participate. Ciov. kelson
and statf, it is understood, would take
part and thus make the event notable.
If the decision on the matter is made
soon many of the legislators would also

Impressive Installation Serv
ices at the House of Hope
George Reis Thinks Kenyon's
Report Threshes Over Old
Collector Geraghty Given a
Send-Off by His Rose
mount Neighbors.
The exercises of installation at the
House of Hope church last night, by
wliich Rev- John Paul Egbert became
the pastor of the largest and most flour
ishing Presbyterian church in the city,
were the culmination of months of en
deavor to find one who all felt was
fitted to assume the mantle that fell
from thd shoulders of the beloved Dr.
Robert Christie last September. Roy.
Mr. Egbert has been in the city for the
past month, and the friends his winning
manners have gained, and the enthusi
asm his scholarly sermons have aroused
among the congregation, are sure tokens
of what may be expected from him
in the months to come as the
regularly installed pastor. lie is a
man of wide culture, not alone
the knowledge of books and schools,
but of travel, and the association
with many men. both in his native land
and in the old world beyond the sea;
and not only in the narrower, but more
scholarly East, but in the wider and
more natural, spontaneous West. It
would seem that the House of Hope
could hardly have found :i man so spe
cially fitted to be the pastor of such a
chur'en as this is.
The installation services were to be
ein at 8 o'clock, and before that hour
the church was comfortably filled with
an expectant and sympathetic audience.
The pulpit was beautifully decorated
with blooming plants in pots, palms
and other delicate and graceful green
ery, In the beautiful modern way that
seeks to associate all sweet and lovely
things with that highest expression of
our faculties, the true worship of God.
The exercises were participated in
by the leading Presbyterian clergy
men of the town, and were beeun
promptly at 8 o'clock by the" sincinsr of
Mendelssohn anthem, "How Lovely Are
the Messengers,"' by the choir, which
was followed by a Scripture reading and
an invocation by Rev. W. C. Covert, of
the Merriam Park Presbyterian church.
The choir and congregation sang a
hymn to the tune of the "Missionary
Hymn." Rev. M. D. Edwards, of Day
ton Avenue church, delivered the ser
mon, which was a strong plea for a
clearer and more distinctive statement
and following in the lives of professing
Presbyterians of the tenets and beliefs
of that church. He claimed that two
thirds of the martyrs were from this
church, citing the Waldenses and
Huguenots and other historical bodies
of Christians of similar beliefs as proof
of his claim. She has ever presented a
strong, inflexible front to the foes of
right, and would not bend or
cringe to save her life. Not
withstanding her inflexibility
Mr. Edwards claims for her a wide
liberality and boundless Catholicism
that made it easy for her to meet and
mingle and live among other Christian
churches in the utmost friendship.
"The ark of God is Christ, not the Pres
byterian or any other church, and we
invite all other professing Christians to
the Lord's table. We demand nothing
as an admission into the church except
what Christ Himself demanded." He
quoted the renowned Dr. Hodge as his
authority for these statements. He
spoke of the scholarship of the church,
its advance in science and in culture
that kept well abreast of the advanced
thinkers of the day, and claimed that
John Calvin was the father of the free
school and the spelling book, as well as
of the missionary spirit of the
church. Not alone in India,
China, Japan and Mexico, but in
the field of home missions, this church
can claim a large proportion of all the
converts made. In closing, the doctor
declared his faitu and belief in the
church of his fathers; there might be
rocks and stones along the shore of the
future for her, but the great heart of
the church is loyal to God's will, and
He will guide and protect her as long
as time shall last. '"We have built upon
the rock of God, the only sure founda
tion, and tnay go on with firm step's,
assured that while God is for us no man
shall prevail against us."
Hymn 703 was suns by the choir and
congregation to tlie familiar tune,
Rev. W. C. Covert, moderator of the
Presbytery of St. Paul, propounded the
constitutional questions to Air. Egbert
and the church, which, being satisfac
torily answered, were followed by the
installation prayer of Rev. E. D. Neil],
D. D., lirst pastor of the church. The
charge to the pastor was given by Rev.
W. A. Hutchinson, of Westminster
church. Rev. R. A. Carnahan, of First
Presbyterian church, made a very
pretty and pertinent charge to the peo
ple, that had moro of a searching per
sonal naturo than such speeches usually
do, and seemed to be thoroughly appre
ciated by the audience. A hymn was
sung, and the benediction by the pastor
closed the exercises.

Kenyon's Report Is Merely
Threshing Old Straw.
The report of Public Examiner Ken
yon as to the books in tha city treasur
er's office was not presented to the
board of aldermen last night. The delay
was caused by the failure of the sten
ographer in the office of the examiner
to complete the typewritten report. Mr.
Kenyon also stated yesterday afternoon
that under the law he would be required
to make his report to the governor, and
that official would then transmit
it to the city authorities. Tha
report covers a period of five
years back from June 1, 18U2,
and the total amount of penalties and
judgments which, it is claimed, were
not collected by the ex-treasurer during
that time amount to 109,000. City Treas
urer Keis, seen yesterday, said he was
not at all worried over the matter, as it
was the old charges threshed over again.
He admitted it was not pleasant to have
charges made indiscriminately by per
sons with no ideas of what they were
talking about, but felt certain the public
would not take any stock in such state
ments. At the proper time, he said, he
would be ready to reply in detail to the
charges which, as he understood them,
would be mentioned in the report.

Over a Charge of a Publishers'
Combine in Printing Board
Commissioner Hanna and Editor
Perkins Exchange Com
The committee on printing of the
county commissioners had quite an
animated and decidedly warm and in
teresting session last evening on the
question of awarding the printing of
the proceedings of the board. As is
known, bids are in from nearly every
weekly paper published in the county,
as well as the two evening dailies of the
city. Representatives were present from
all these papers, and Mr. Paradis, of
the Midway News, appeared as their
spokesman, although he had no bid in,
and stated that lie came there as a pub
lisher to ascertain whether the commit
tee intended to discriminate against
weekly papers. The county attorney
was called in, and read the law, which
said that tne committee could publish
proceedings in either a daily or weekly
paper, or both, and read the sec
tion which sueaks of general cir
culation and the best informa
tion ot the taxpayer. Mr. Paradis
made a lengthy argument defending
his position on points of law and equity,
and the committee agreed with hiii) as
to the former, but not as to the latter.
The Lake Breeze was excluded on the
ground that the law reads at the county
seat, aud that paper is published at
White Bear, which « outside the city.
After a loug discussion and considerable
bantering with the committee, Commis
sioner Hanna stated that lie had been
informed by one of the publishers of a
weekly paper that there was a pool pro
posed by them to bid for the printing.
Mr. Paradis warmly stated that so far
as he was concerned or knew there was
no pool, and any one who so stated was
certainly misinformed. Mr. llauiui
stated that he did not refer to him, as he
had no bid in, but that he had been so
informed by a publisher who had. Sev
eral of the publishers present rose in
turn, and each denied the existence
or contemplation of any pool, and
one West side printer stated
that any one who did say so
was uttering a falsehood. But Mr.
Hanna still stuck to his statement, and
later in the meeting Mr. Perkins, of
White Bear, rose and asked if he was
the publisher referred to. Mr. llanna
said he was, and called his attention to
the evening he came his house and
told him so while standing on his front
porch. Mr. Perkins said he thought the
commissioner was mistaken, and that he
had told him that all the papers would
have a bid in.
"Did you not tell me that the weekly
publishers were to form an organiza
tion?" asked Mr. Hanna.
"Yes, 1 did, but you misunderstood
me that it was for such a purpose, I
"1 do not tb.ink anything about it, I
know it," said Mr. Hanna, and the
episode closed in favor of Commissioner
During the course of the meeting
County Attorney Butler gave a decision
of interest in the fact that the contract
ot the Daily News expired on March 20,
and that they were no longer entitled to
do the printing after that date. Some
other minor matters with regard to
county printing were talked over, and
the committee adjourned .till Thursday
morning, when they will make a report
with regard to the publication of tho
official proceedings.
