WAS FIRST SILVER WEDDING Now Popular Ceremony Said to Have Originated Through a Whim of Monarch of France. The faHhion of silver weddings dates back to the reign of Huguea Capet, king of Fram e, in 9S7.

When the king heard these pralHes of the two ho ordered them to be brought before him and said to the woman: "Your service ia Kreat. greater than tula man's, whose Hervices were great enough, for the woman nlways finds work and obedience harder than a man. and therefor I will give you a I reward. At your aK I know of nono ' better than a dowry and a husband. , "The dowry Is here hia farm from ! thla lime forth belongs to you.

Woman'a Attitude Toward Law. In most cases womun ia lawless; Him will obey tho law because she la ai r aid of It. but she will not respect It. Kor her It Is always sic volo, sic jubeo. 1 suspect that if she had bad a share in making tho law she would i not have boen like tbia, for Bhe would have become aware of the relation be tween law and life. Roughly she tends to look upon the law aa tyrannous If sho does not like It, as protective If she does like It Probably there la little relation between her own moral Impulse, which la generous, and the law, which la only JusL (That la, Just In Intention.) Thla la qualified by the moral spirit In woman, which Increas ingly leads her to the view that cer tain things should be done and others not be dona. But even then It la likely that at heart woman does not respect the law; she may respect what It represents strength but not what It implies equity. She la In finitely more rebellious than man, and whore aba haa power ahe inflamoe the world In protest. I do not refer to the militant auSraglBts, but to wom en's general attitude. W. L.

The boy who loves nature will ! All his pockets with pebbles, shells, ' bark of trees, bugs worms, in short. : with anything that he desires to; study. One boy of my acquaintance i went to school with a couple of snakes in bis pockets, but to his' great sorrow the reptiles shured ; the fute of Mary's lamb. ' The boy with a mechanical turn I of mind will be pretty apt to I treasure a sU-ioch rule, a pencil,! and some bits of wood, wire and twine. He will also be apt to have a half dozen queer contrivances, the result of bis inventive genius. The idle, thoughtless boy will put anything aad everything into his pockets, without regard for "rhyme or reason," Articles wholly worthless will predominate. The degenerate, and the boy who has fallen into bad company will treasure cigar stubs, cigarettes and matches, broken pipes, tobacco, bad pictures and bad literature. The teachers in our great public schools realize clearly that to know a boy you must first know his pockets. They have made astounding discoveries, some that were tragical indeed. What kind of a boy do your pockets indicate? Exchaage. Fer SUIna. For stains on light dreaaaa, etc.. lay the garment fiat on a table and cover the stains with dry pipe clay.
