Three things to fight for—Honor, country, home. Three things to think about.—Life, death, eternity. SWEAR OFF. Gossiping, Anticipating evils in the future, Faultfinding, nagging and worrying, Dwelling on fancied slights and wrongs, Scolding, and flying into a passion over trifles, Thinking that life is a grind and not worth living, Talking ponstantly about yourself and your affairs, Saying unkind things about acquaint ances and friends, Lamenting the past, holding on the disagreeable experiences, Pitying yourself and bemoaning your lack of opportunities, Writing letters when the blood is hot, which you may regret later, Thinking that all the good chances and opportunities are gone by, Carping and criticising. See the best, rather than the worst in others, Dreaming you would be happier in some other place or circumstances, Belittling those whom you envy be cause you feel they are superior to yourself, Dilating on your pains and aches and misfortunes to every one who will listen to you, Gazing idly into the future, instead of making the most of the present. SELECT READING FOR THE FAMILY. CLOTHES DO NOT MAKE THE GIRL. Clothes do not make the girl any more than they make the man. But very often dress is indicative of the character. Immodest and vulgar gowns do not lead one to think that the wearer of them is religious or even womanly. "Custom may have much to do with it, but even custom, the prevalence of certain fashions, cannot induce a true woman to make of herself an objectionable sight. If it be so with the woman herself, what shall be said of her young daughter? Yet there are many good Catholic mothers, apparently devout, who, while rigorously modest themselves, stand by idly and watch their girls deck themselves in the extremes of styles, with gaudy and cheap orna ments. It is custom, again, the fol lowing of a craze which is appealing to the immature girl, who scarcely realizes to what danger she is expos ing herself by dressing in the fashion of those to whom innocence and mod esty is a byword. But if the girl is thoughtless the mother should not be. She knows enough of the world to realize that the dearest possession of her daughters is their good name and that the good name may be lost if they merely seem to place themselves on the level of those who brazenly flaunt indecency to lure souls to destruction. WHEN TO SHAKE HANDS. When to shake hands depends on circumstances, but a few general rules may be given. When a man is introduced to a lady she does not shake hands with him unless he is distinguished or a great deal older than herself. If he is a husband or brother of the lady mak ing the introduction it is natural to receive him cordially by shaking hands, but it is not usual to do so if he is a mere acquaintance. A hostess should shake hands with all the guests who come to her house, both on their arrival and departure. Women do not shake hands when in troduced to each other, but merely bow. When, however, a young girl is presented by a friend to a married woman, the latter generally shakes hands with her, but the girl should not make the first advance. Men shake hands when introduced to each other as an expression of goodwill. When leaving an entertainment a man shakes hands with the hostess, and he may do so with any friends who are near, but he should not, of course, go about shaking hands gen erally. GIVE THEM THE FLOWERS NOW. Closed eyes can't see the white roses, Cold hands can't hold them, you know Breath that is stilled cannot gather The odors that sweet from them blow. Death, with a peace beyond dream ing, Its children of earth doth endow Life is the time we can help them, So give them the flowers now. Here are the struggles and striving, Here are the cares and the tears Now is the time to the smoothing The frowns and the furrows and fears. 7T "~2Ld IIMyside^, What to closed eyes are kind sayings? What to hushed heart is deep vow? Naught can avail after parting, So give them the flowers now. Just a kind word or a greeting, Just a warm grasp or a smile— These are the flowers that will lighten The burdens of many a mile. After the journey is over, What is the use of them, how Can they carry, who must be carried? So give them the flowers now. Blooms from happy heart's garden, Plucked in the spirit of love Blooms that are earthly reflections Of flowers that blossom above. Words cannot tell what a measure Of blessing such gifts will allow To dwell in the lives of the many— Oh, give them the flowers now! —Leigh M. Hodges THE CHILDREN'S HOUR. EAVESDROPPERS. Do you know why a person who listens at a keyhole is called an eaves dropper? About two hundred years ago there was a certain very powerful secret so ciety which would allow no outsider to hear or see what went on at its meetings. There were some people in those days, just as there are now, who spent much of their time in prying into other persons' affairs, and they tried in all sorts of ways to discover what this society was doing. They kept on trying until several of them were caught and punished, and that put an end to the prowling around and listening at knot holes or chinks in the wall for when a man was caught at this trick he was condemned to be suspended for a short time under the eaves of a shed while it was raining hard, until the water ran in under his collar and out at his shoes and from that day until this a prying person has been called an "eavesdropper." —St. Nicholas A PAPER DOLL'S HOUSE. Helen had no brothers or sisters to play with her, so sometimes she had a hard time amusing herself. She had lots of dolls and dishes and doll furni ture but one gets tired after a while of dressing dolls, and the grandest tea party loses most of its charm when there's no one but dolls to share it. She even tried inviting Fido, but his table manners were bad. Puss' were not much better, either, so they were not invited a second time. But Helen had the jolliest, pleasantest mamma imaginable, and she was a fine play fellow when she had the time. She was always thinking ways to make pretty toys. One day she brought in a blank book about fifteen inches long and ten inches wide. It opened endwise, like a post card album. "What do you guess this is going to be?" she asked Helen, her eyes spark ling with enthusiasm. Helen shook her head. "A house for your paper dolls!" Helen could not see how a book could become a house, but, if mamma said so, it was all right. She could do anything. Mamma opened the book at the first blank page. "This is to be the hall, so let's hunt some furniture for it." So they got out some old furniture catalogues, magazines, and papers, and began to look for suitable pieces of furniture. "Shall we have it in mission, or wal nut, or oak? You like this heavy oak set? All right: we'll just cut out this hat rack and paste it over here on the page. Then this settee and two straight chairs. Now for a rug and some pictures." 3y this time Helen understood all about this interesting sort of house, so she begged to finish its furnishing all by herself. When she wanted a door or a window, she drew them on the page, and then pasted up her draperies and curtains. What a de lightful task it was to furnish the par lor' or drawing-room, and the bed rooms—one for each doll—were a joy for many days. It took a long time also to furnish the dining-room, and to find dishes, silver and glass to suit her taste. The kitchen was most in teresting, and you may be sure it was fitted up with everything that the most fastidious paper-doll cook could wish for. "Now, isn't this a nice house," said her mamma, "for your large family of paper dollies that have been knocking about with nowhere to lay their heads, so to speak? Of course, all you have to do when the rooms are ready is to put each doll in his or her room and close—the book!" JACK AND HIS MOTHER. "Seems to me I'm always doing things for mother," grumbled Jack, when she asked him to water the plants. "Lots of things this morning." "How many things?" asked Aunt Amy. "Oh, I went on an errand and I fed the chickens—always so much to do on Saturday. And now those plants." "How many things has mother done for you today? Suppose you make the list." "I will," said Jack. He brought it later, saying: *1 really didn't think it would count up BO, Aunt Amy." It read: "Found my collar. Sewed on a but ton. Got me a shoestring. Wrote a note to ask if Tom would come over. Got a sliver out of my finger. Got a knot out of my kitestring. Found my fishing tackle. Made me some glue. Showed me about an example. Fixed my hat band. Found some nails for my shelf and helped to fix it—" "I lost count there," said Jack. 'The House That Saves You Money HWallblom Furniture and Carpet Go. 398-408 Jackson St. ST.
