As a fond mother, when the day is o’er, Leads by the hand her child to bed, Half willing, half reluctant to be led, And leave his broken playthings on the floor, Still gazing at them through the open door, Not wholly reassured and comforted By promises of others in their stead, Which, though more splendid, may not please him more— So Nature deals with us and takes away Our playthings, one by one, and by the hand Leads us to rest so gently that we go Scarce knowing if we wished to go or stay. Being too full of sleep to understand How far the Unknown transcends the what we know. ■ • —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. WointMi land KconomicM. A study of the economic relation be tween men and women as a factor in social evolution. The purpose of this book, as set forth by the author, Charlotte Perkins Stet son, is, in part, “to reach in especial the thinking women of today, and urge upon them 'a new sense,' not only of their social responsibilities as indiv uals, but of their measureless racial im portance as makers of men.” * i “Women and Economies” is a protest and a prophecy, a book of great origin ality of thought. It traces the origin of tendencies and the causes of existing conditions with a master hand. It is honest, and it is as broad and deep as it is honest. Every student should read it. 358 pages. Small, Maynard & Co., Boston. Price $1.50. When You Weep—and Why Tears are the common legacy of every human being, and if you should be ask ed whence they come and where they go, you would probably display a sur prising amount of ignorance about a very simple subject. A writer in The Evening Telegram enlightens its read ers as follows: Our eyes are always wet with tears, not only when we weep, but always. Our eyeballs are subjected to a con stant flow of the lachrymal fluid even when we are asleep, and were the stream to cease only for an hour, mis erable indeed would be the lot of the human creature. At the outer corner of every eye is what is called the lachrymal gland, which nestles under the overhanging bone of the forehead. This organ se cretes the fluid which flows over the eyeball to the inner corner, and there it disappears through a little orfiee, whence it is in turn conducted to the nostril. That is why you require so many extra handkerchiefs when you have a cold. Now comes the question, how do the tears find their way to the nose? Ex amine your eye in the mirror and you will find a small elevation upon the editorial comment “The Pioneer Limited” “Nothing richer has ever been pro duced by any railroad."- - ■S/. Paul Pioneer Press. “It’s a world beater. *’* l st . PaH , Ghie “The ‘best thing’ the railroad world can produce. —s/. p„„i Ditipatch “Prominent and discriminating people marvel at the creation of elegance and comfort wrought by modern car build ers- , —Minneapolis Tribune. “The Pioneer Limited stands today perfect in construction, gorgeous in finish and the acme of luxury and comfort. ” • —Minneapolis Journal. “The closest inspection bewilders and takes the breath away, for the magnif icence and beauty of it all is simply tre mendous. — Minneapolis Times. The Pioneer Limited leaves Minne apolis at 7:30 and St. Paul at 8:10 every evening in the year for Milwaukee and Chicago, via Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. (No extra charge on this train.)

Place your finger upon the lower eyelid just below this small elevation, so as to turn it outward. There you will see a small hole, like a pin prick, and there you have found the little passage that con ducts the tears into the nostril. This little orfice, for various causes, frequently becomes obstructed, in which case you are bound to weep in cessantly until relief is afforded you by the removal of the obstacle. The overflow of tears which follows some great grief is created by the lachrymal gland under pressure of men tal emotion. Why are tears salt? Literally, our tears are distilled from the very springs of our inmost vitality, for they are sep arated by marvelous machinery and chemistry from the arterial blood fresh ly circulated from the heart; and as this contains about six or seven parts in 1,000 of saline constituents, so tears contain one-third per cent of chloride of sodium, besides a very small propor tion of other salts, 98 percent being water. The office - of this alkaline fluid is to clear, clean -and moisten the cor nea, which, having no blood vessels, would, of course, wither and dry up without moisture, and we should be come blind. Se»er Hail Served It Before. • Sometimes a man would willingly be obliging—if he only knew how. Thus the Chicago Chronicle relates the ex perience of “a short little woman and her tall husband,” who svent to a down town restaurant for dinner. “Will you have oysters?" asked the man, glancing over the bill of fare. “Yes,” said the short little woman, as she tried in vain to touch her toes to the floor. “And, John, I Want a has sock." John nodded, and as he handed his order to the waiter he said, “Yes, and bring a hassock for the lady." “One hassock?" asked the waiter, with what John thought more than or dinary interest, as he nodded in the affirmative. Still the waiter did not go, but brushed the table-cloth with a towel and rearranged the articles on it several times, while his face got very red. Then he came around to John’s side, and speaking sotto voce, said: “Say, mister, I haven’t been here long, and I’m not on to all these things. Will the lady have the hassock boiled or fried?” Tlie Etiquette of Hoimekeepin^, WHAT THE WAITRESS WEARS. For those women whose household establishment includes a waitress, it is necessary that they should see that her dress is correct, according to the present style, which is almost universal in well-appointed homes. This consists of a black dress, made with plain skirt, and either blouse or t<ght fitted waist. A long, white apron, with bib and shoulder strap, a white collar, a white cap, and low, black shoes that are noiseless. There is a nurse’s shoe much liked for a waitress’ use, made with elastic sides and very light, pliable sole. With other shoes the sole has a covering of rubber or felt. Whatever is used must be noiseless. Black duck is the best material for the dress, as it launders well. The aprons are made simple or elaborate with embroidery, as preferred, only the same style in shape is used, whatever the decoration may be. It is customary for a mistress to pro vide the caps, and many provide the aprons worn in the afternoon as well* the maid leaving them all freshly laun dered when she leaves her place. HOW TO PLACE KNIVES AND FORKS. Do not err in the position of the knives, forks, spoons and glasses set at each place, for the rule that applies to this is universal, and any deviation is a breach of etiquette in the table service. Forks and spoons are always placed at the left of the cover with the bowls up; knives at the right, with the blades in; glasses at the right of the plate, the water glass to just touch the point of the knife. FOR LUNCH AND TEA The polished table, without table cloth, iS preferred for these meals. Place a doily under each plate, atid an asbes tos mat under each doily, if hot dishes are to be served, in order to protect the wu.i; uurn me nea.i o i me dish. HOW TO SERVE SALT. The shaker salts are no longer used at table whyi guests are present. In their place an individual salt cellar is placed at the top of each plate, with a small silver or china spoon beside it. WHAT TO SERVE WITH COURSES. Serve soups with croutons, bread sticks, crackers or bread fingers. Serve fish with olives, cucumbers or other relish. Potato is the only vege table served with fish. Serve meat or poultry with the regu lar sauce or jelly or two vegetables. Serve salad with crackers and cheese or with tiny rolls. Serve ice cream, sherbet or jelly with cake. Serve after dinner coffee alone. Serve salted almonds, peanuts, or olives at any time between courses, when desirable, and before the dessert course. Serve confectionery after the dessert course, or with it if preferred. Serve fruit after dessert, always ac companied with an individual finger bowl. THE SOUP SPOON There is an etiquette in the manner, of eating soup, which cultivated people observe. The point of the spoon is never placed between the lips, the soup being taken from the side, and tha spoon placed In the plate to take the soup from instead of towards one. There is a new soup spoon on the market, a round spoon, not unlike a miniature ladle. Women Wlio Do Not Wlnli to Vote. One of the stock objections offered by the opponents of woman suffrage is that women do not want the ballot, that they are contented in their present con dition and that they are already over burdened with care and should not have this extra responsibility thrust upon them. Il is true that a great many women say that they do not wish to vote, that they have expressed the same senti ment in regard to every step in the pro gress of women, but as soon as the change is made they are the first to avail themselves of its privileges. When a merchant in a town in Maine first employed a woman in his store the men boycotted the store and the women upheld the men. When an effort was made to have women study medicine and Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell dared to do so, not only did the pien, say, very severe things about her, but even the women refused to speak tocher, When the effort was begun to' secure equal property rights for women, many wom en said with contempt, “Do you suppose I would give myself where I could not give my property?” Likewise, objections were made by both men and women when the first at tempt was made for higher education for women. No longer than 38 years ago when Vassar college was founded, it was the object of general jibes and sneers. Mrs. Lucinda H. Stone, of Kalamazoo, Mich., who, with her husband, was chiefly instrumental in opening Michi gan university to women, went abroad about that time, in charge of a travel ing party of young women going to visit the holy land. Among their fel low passengers were a band of ladies going out as foreign missionaries. Vas sar was the topic of conversation, and public opinion was strongly unfavor able to it. Mrs. Stone tells how the leader of the missionary party, a wom an of intelligence and cultivation, voic ed the general feeling when she said: “The mere fact of its being called a ‘college for women’ is enough to con demn it. We may be sure that no re fined Christian mother will ever send her daughter to Vassal- college.” In the Eastern cities where the wom en are shut up in harems and are not permitted to appear on the street un veiled, women themselves uphold these restrictions. The Chinese lady is just as proud of her small feet as an Ameri can anti-suffragist of her political dis abilities. No great reform has ever been asked for by the masses; the few more pro gressive ones have seen the need an 3 obtained the change, then the people have grown to the improved condition. In the old days of anti-slavery, op ponents jeered abolitionists and said: “Why make all this noise about eman cipation? the slaves are contented and happy.” When asked if they wished to be free, many said: “No, we are well fed, clotned and sheltered and all our wants are supplied.” But is there anyone who would not claim that these steps in the progress of the race have not been beneficial to humanity? And yet the masses of those concerned in these reforms said they did not want them, before they were established facts. Practical experience has already shown this bugbear about women’s not wishing to vote to be an illusion like all the rest. In the four states where women have full suffrage they vote in even a greater proportion than the men do, and Mrs. Elizabeth B. Harper, treasurer of Colorado State Federation of Women’s clubs, who opposed the granting of suffrage to women in 1893, now says she doubts if any woman who had lived where she could vote would be content to live in a state where she was denied the right. It is the same old story; every step In the progress of women, from learn ing to read and write to casting a bal lot, has been fought against by this same caviling skepticism. BLHORA M.

In this era of strictly designed tailor made gowns it is difficult to find a de sign between the conventional coat and skirt suits and more elaborate crea tions of trimmed cloth. This model combines all the close fitting virtues of a tailor-made gown, omitting the severe lines, and these characteristics will assure it popularity. It is made of cheviot of a deep violet shade and trimmed with open black silk braid. Smooth fitted linings are the foundation over which the stylish arrangement is made. The back fits smoothly, small gathers at the waist being drawn smoothly un der the belt. The left front is plain, but the right is gathered slightly at the neck and laps over the left in double breasted style. The close-fitting two piece sleeve flares at the hand and is trimmed with five rows of braid. The high collar is shaped with two points in the back. A band of braid trims the front and is used as' a tielt, fastened by a small silver buckle. J The foundation of the skirt is cir cular. The tunic is cut in two pieces with a seam down the center back. It is fastened in the front, where the right side laps over about tiro inches. A band of braid outlines the front and bottom of the tunic. Both skirts are fitted plain across the back and have small darts at the waist line. To make this waist in the medium size will require one and three-quarters yards of material 44 inches wide. The pattern. No. 7793, is cut in sizes for a 32, 34, 36, 38 and 40-inch bust measure. To make the skirt will require three and one-half yards of the same ma terial. The patern. No. 7795, is cut in sizes for a 22, 24, 26, 28 and 30-inch waist measure. 7799—Ladies’ Seven Cored Ski. ■ 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 3G inch w? ; st. Ladles* Seven Gored Skirt, No. 7700. Hints By May Manton. This new seven gored skirt is made in black cheviot and the seams are out lined w-ith cords of black velvet. These velvet cords bid fair to become very pop ular this season for outlining the seams on waists and skirts or as a finish to revers, collars, capes, ruffles, etc. This model is practical for silk, wool or velvet materials. It is close fitting at the top and has the correct flare around the bottom. The fulness in the back is laid in two plaits which are stitched down flat about six inches from the waist line.u This gives the ef fect of a habit back; With graceful un derlying fulness falling from the center. The skirt is especially designed for women of full proportions to whom the long graceful lines otf the narrow gores are exceeding becoming. The pattern is cut in larger sizes than usual, run ning as high as 36 f lndhes waist meas ure. I £ To make this skirt4n.tt.he medium size will require five c/fie-quarter yards of material 44 inches jjvide. The pat tern, No. 7799, is ctft fn sizes for a 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 32 1 and 36-inch waist measure. “The Firebrand” —TO BURN THINGS— A new radical monthly which will surely in terest and may startle those who read it.

CHILDREN’S DEPARTMENT I'm Goin’ Bark to Gran'pa'a, I’m goin’ back down to gran’pa’s. 1 won’t come back no more To hear remarks about my feet A-muddyin’ up the floor. There’s too much said about clothes, The scowling’s never done — I’m goin’ back dow’n to gran’pa's, Where a boy kin hev some fun. I dug up half his garden A-gittin’ worms for bait; He said he used to like it When I laid abed so late; He said that pie was good for boys, An’ candy made ’em grow. Ef I can’t go to gran’pa’s, I’ll turn pirate ’fust you know. He let me take his shotgun, An’ loaded it fer me. The cats they hid out in the barn The hens flew up a tree; I had a* circus in the yard With twenty other boys—• I'm goin’ back.,down to gran’pa’s, Where they aipt afraid of noise. He didn’t make me comb my hair But once or twice a week; He wasn’t watchin’ out fer words I didn’t orter speak; He told me stories ’bout the war An’ Injuns shot out West. Oh, I’m goin’ down to gran’pa’s, Fer he knows wat boys like best. He even run a race with me, But had to stop and cough, He rode my bicycle an’ laughed Bec’us he tumbled off; He knew the early apple trees Around within a mile, Oh, gran’pa was a dandy An’ was “in it” all the while. I bet you gran’pa’s lonesome, I don’t care what you say; I seen him kinder cryin’ When you took me away. When you talk to me of heaven, Where all the good roiks go. I guess I’ll go to gran’pa’s An' we’ll have a good time, I know Gray Coni nml Blue Eyes. “Jack Frost helped me out, I knew he would,” Said a squirrel with coat of gray; “He has opened the burrs, the little nuts' furs, In a most astonishing way.” And while he talked a wonderful breeze Scattered nuts on every side; And he said: “Very soon, perhaps by noon. My winter’s store I can safely hide.” He worked away, this little Gray Coat/ As happy as happy could be, Till he hid for his store a quart or more In a hole at the foot of a tree. He had covered them up with leaves of brown, When some children, out nutting, too, Came bounding along, with shout and song, Swinging thoir baskets bright and hew. And one little Blue Eyes found the nuts Little Gray Coat had stored away, “And she took them all, the large and the small,” I think I hear somebody say. Ah! no; she didn’t, she left them there. For my little Blue Eyes was good. Now, which do you say, out nutting that day, Was the happiest one in the wood? —M. Winchester Adams. Newark, N. J. Editorial Endorsement.
