ONCK In a shop window hung by a string a little wooden Hoy-Doll, and nut fur away by a string hung a little wooden Girl-Dull. As they were both made of wood, Koy-Doll thought It would be a very proper thing for him to do If be asked Girl-Doll to marry him, for he bad long been In love with her. Hut when he told his love one night when nil was still, Glrl-DoU turned up the tip of her little painted nose and tossed a wooden head. "I shall marry no one beneath me," sue said, "but some one nearer my equal." "But we are both made of wood," pleaded Boy-Doll, as he looked 'p at his sweetheart, hanging above him. "That makes no difference," said the haughty little Glrl-DoU. "1 am above you ; that you can plainly see." Boy-Doll had to admit that this was true; he also knew that on the same line with Girl-Doll hung a Worsted Boy dressed In blue, and toward him Glrl-DoU had looked when she spoke of marrying one who was her equal, Wooden Boy-Doll was very unhappy, for he knew no way of getting up where Girl-Doll was hanging and he was sure she never would come down to where he sat on the floor of the shop window. At night he could hear Glrl-DoU and Boy-Blue talking and be heard her tell him that all that separated them was the Jumping Jack that hung between them. "Oh, dear," thought Wooden Boy, "instead of one ilval I have two. I never will be able to win her. Even If I could be bung on the same line, there would be many between us." So little Boy-Doll sat very sad and "What's in yet; )W T4T c9 , r,o Facts about your name; its history; meaning; whence it was derived; significance; your lucky day and lucky jewel , By MILDRED MARSHALL ROSE. rj OSE by any other name would J still be a rose, according to ety mologists. The fortunate possessor of one of the most popular flower names lias a charmingly fragrant origin. It seems that all countries and iangunges agree In expressing a rose by Its color. Even the Syrian name for the oleander (rose laurel) Is rodyon. Greece pro duced a Rhoda, which has since come to be a modern name of wide vogue. The first feminine names to be con nected with the fragrant flower called a rose were Bohals and Roesln, which, curiously enough, are said to come from the French and Latin of bros, meaning fame, rather than from the flower. England's most famous Rohals was the wife of Gilbert of Gaunt There were many Roeslas among the De Bohuns and De Veres and the wife of Fulbert de Dover !n the, reign of Henry II was so called. Ireland adopted the English form and changed it to Rose, whereupon It Ound vogue In all classes and is still one of the most , popular peasant names. Germany took It and made from It the diminutives, Rosl and m the floor and thought uf his sweetheart, far above hliu, at whom he could only look, but not once did she lower her proud little wooden head to look ut her true lover. But one duy, when all seemed lost to little Boy-Doll, for Jumping Jack had been sold and now there was nothing to keep Girl-Doll and Boy Blue apart, the spring that held Girl Doll broke and down she tumbled right beside Boy-Doll. Girl-Doll looked up at Boy-Blue, but he did not lower his head; she was too fur beneath him to be noticed. Thnt night, when nil was still, Girl Doll sat close to Boy-Dull, for the shopkeeper had placed her there. "It Is very pleasant down here," she said. "I think I shall like living here." Then the heart of little Wooden Boy went plt-a-put and he grew quite bold. "We are equal now," he suld, "don't you think we might get mnrrled?" "Of course, silly, Boy," answered Girl-Doll, "that was why 1 came down." (Copyright.) The Right Thing at the Right Time By MARY MARSHALL DUFFEE WHEN HE DRINKS TEA. IN THE minds of a good many young men afternoon tea drinking Is es sentially a feminine pastime and the young man who Is versed In the gen tle ceremony Is by these looked upon as a Miss Nancy sort of person. But many of our soldiers who had been In England came home with quite a taste for the cup that cheers but does not Inebriate, and before long tea will be quite the most stimulating beverage that any one can get, anyway. The prediction Is made that the custom of tea drinking In the afternoon already as popular among men as women to England will become much more general among all classes of Ameri cans. The large hotels are preparing to see many more men In their tea rooms. So the up-to-the-minute young a Name? Roschen. Roslta is a lyric form found only in Peru, but, Is none the less charming. Our own whim of Latin izing our short feminine names, fol lowing the Spanish-American war, has made Roslta almost equivalent to Rose; certainly every Rose has an etymological right to call herself Rosl ta if she so fancies. Everyone Is familiar with the Rose of Tennyson's "Gardener's Daughter": Who hss not heard Of Rose, the Gurdener'i daughter Where was he, 8o blunt In memory, Bo old at heart. At such a distance from his youth In grief, That, having seen, forgot? The common mouth, i So frost to express delight, in praise of her Grew oratory. Such a lord Is Love, And Beauty such a mistress of the world. The moss agate Is Rose's talismanic stone.

LURIE Common Errors In English and How to Avoid Them "GENTS" AND "PANTS." DESPITE the fact that all critics and even many writers who are not disposed to be very critical have condemned the use of the word "gents," for "gentlemen," the former word Is still used In common speech and In numerous advertisements. "Clothing for ladles and gents" la ad vertised, and In announcements of en tertainments we are told that "Gents' tickets are $1, ladles' 50 cents." The following was overheard recently: "Oh, Mary, did you see the man who picked up my purse?" "Yes; be looked like a perfect gent." Never say "gent;" say "gentleman." The word "pants," as an abbrevia tion for "pantaloons," Is also con demned by critics ; but "pantaloons" is now seldom used, 89 the only word that Is left when one wishes to de scribe a man's nether garment la "trousers."

Her ambition was realized as If by magic, the honor and opportunity having been thrust upon her. man had better become fairly expert In the gentle art of drinking tea. The idea used to be that when one drank tea In the afternoon one must hold one's cup and saucer deftly In the left hand. Ilwns considered quite Incorrect to let It rest on a conven iently placed table or stand. But now, although we certainly do not sit at a table when we drink tea In our homes, we do not spurn the assistance of the little Individual stands that come in sets of five or six and form a "nest" when uot In use. At hotels and "ten rooms," however, one tnkes afternoon ten from a table just as one tukes any other meal. Now, of course, one la not supposed to "make a meal of It" at afternoon tea. If toast and cakes are served, a couple of small pieces of toast and one or two cakes should be sufficient. It Is unusual to serve anything more than toast or little cakes or sweet crackers, with sometimes candles, or Jam with the toast. When Jam Is served. It Is usually placed In snyill portions on a bit of toast. When jnm Is served, of course a plate must be used. Otherwise the cuke or biscuit Is very often simply placed on the saucer.

The following outline may be helpful. I. The New Heaven and the Xew Karth (vv. 1, 2) ; II. The New I'eople (vv. 3-8); III. The New Jeru salem (vv. 9-14). Another way would he to assign the Golden Texts to different members of the class asking them to give the part of the particular lesson which Illus trates the teachings of the text. SUM another way would be to sum marize the different Scripture pass ages, giving the leading lessons 'of wich. The following Is given by way of suggestion : I. The believer's supreme obliga tion is to present himself as n living sacrifice to God. The grand reason for so doing Is that lie has received the mercies of (Jod. The one so yield ed will love his fellow believer sin cerely. II. The believer's body Is God's property the temple of the Holy Ghost; therefore we lire under solemn obligation to use It for His glory. III. Since God the Father and Jesus Christ work, It Is ncumhent upon all to work, und tlie'inun who will not work should not eut.a IV. God bates the greed thut movea men to dishonest methods In order to get rich. His Judgment shull fall upon such, V. True education will lend one to Christ. The one only book which tells about him is the Ilible. No one can cull himself educated who is Ignorant of the Bible. VI. God rested when Ills work of creation was done. On this basis He has established the law of labor and rest. The obligation to cease from la bor Is thnt one may remember God. VII. The church Is an organism ns the human body. In order that there may be real helpful co-operation there must be membership In that body. VIII. Jesus should be welcomed as a guest Into every home. lie Is an ex ample of an obedient son In the home. IX. The most Important question Is not "Who Is my neighbor?" but "T whom can I be a neighbor?" Being a neighbor Is seeing those about who nerd help and rendering such help In loving sympathy. X. The Christian Is a citizen as well i a church member. Intelligent Chris tians will show proper loyalty to the state. XI. When Christ shall reign as King there shall lie peace nil over the world between animals on i men. The Mipreme business of the believer In this dispensation Is to preach the gos pel to nil the world as a witness. XII. Jesus came and preached the gospel to the poor, but shall come again to Judge the world and reign as King. Since the whole of ntnn's duty is summed up by Christ In duty to God and duty to mnn (Matt. 22:30-40), It would be profitable to go through the quarter's lesson and set down the teachings tinder I. Duties to God; II. Duties to Man. House Divided Against Itself. He who sits above the woterfloods Is still working out Hia ways, and man's extremity Is, us ever, God's op portunity. But If we are to be real sharers In this task of divine recon struction, and fulfilling of God's pur poses for the human family, it be hosVes us to do our utmost by prayer and effort to repair the breaches which human waywardness has wrought In that Instrument which He has de signed, and through w hich He has cho sen especially to work out humanity's salvation the church of the living God, the One, Holy, Cuthollc and Apos tolic Body of Christ. For until these wounds are healed the church must present herself as a house divided against Itself; and, because the Sav ior's prayer for a unity In the "one fold" remains unfulfilled, Ills enemies continue to triumph, and the forces which make for righteousness are thwarted. Bishop Howden. What the Lord Said. The one thing Indispensable In the service of Christ we can learn no where else except nt His feet. Here is the spiritual secret which makes a saint so potent for the highest good. For It is true of a saint that "the least of his words and actions may be of more vital effect In the world than the life's labor of any or the herd of benevolent people who are busied about much serving." Our Lord said concerning Ills chosen friends: "For their snkes I sanctify, I consecrate. Myself." Even when we set apart all that was unique In His self-consecro-tlon all that He alone could, once for all, achieve those solemn words come home to every disciple. For their sakes I Consecrate myself. Nothing 8o Sure as Death. A blessed thing It Is to die here, that we may live there. "And nothing Is so sure as death, and nothing so uncertain as the time. I may be too old to live; I can never be too you.-ig to die. 1 will therefore live e?wy hour, as If I were to die the wot" Selected. ' DOQ AND CAT. "Chink, the dog, and Zeppy, the cat, were talking," said Daddy. "Chink was sitting Inside n screened piazza and Zeppy was silting out side. "Of course, they were great friends and the reason one was outside and the other Inside was because Chink had been liupplng atnl Zeppy hud been out for an airing. They belonged to the same lady and they were very happy and very friendly. " 'I really would be ashamed,' said Zeppy, 'If I had to have screens and mosquito netting put up because of me. Why the mosquitoes and flies hnvpn't got any decent pride. " They don't mind if they're not tsVcd In. They don't even mind If they Iw.'-e screens put up on pluzzus and In wind.iws to keep them out. " 'If they get a chance to get In they will Just the same. Now I am outside of course, hut all I have to do Is me ow and I am allowed In, and If you are out you know what you have to do to get In.' "'Of course, said Chink, "all I have to do Is to stand In front of the door and wng my tall and they let me In. I am really Invited in whenever I want to go In. I am n member of the family ns you are. But I cannot un derstand the ways of mosquitoes nn,1 the ways of files who will conn" In even when things are made so plain that they must slay out. "'Now It Is true that here on the farm they put up scarecrows to look like men to scare the crows away. " 'But the actions of crows are n lit tle more easily understood. The crows simply want a meal, they do not want to come around and bite people and make them uncomfortable. " 'Kvery time though that I look at the make-believe crow on the entrance "They Let Me In." to the gate of the garden I feel like talking to him and saying. "'"Well, old boy, those two scare crows In (lie fields beyond ore put up for you." " 'He looks so real sitting there on the fence.' "'I knew he wasn't real,' said Zep py, 'for I sat and watched him for ever so long and lie didn't caw. I went up to him and I asked him If he couldn't caw. "'"My dear fellow," I said to him, "are you quite dumb, can't you speak?" And he didn't say a word. " 'So I knew he was a make-believe crow for between not answering and not moving one could tell. "'And then a day or so afterwards I saw the lady who looks after us all pick up the crmv and fix him so he looks In another direction ns she put him nnd then I knew he wasn't real. "'I am glad I'm not n make-believe cat. If I were a make-believe cat I wouldn't be given any milk.' "you wouldn't want any milk if you were a make-believe cat,' said Chink. "'Oh, hut once I passed a house, and outside were two mnke-helleve lions. Their mouths were oihmi and I felt so sorry thnt they couldn't be given hones and big chunks of meat and that they couldn't roar.' " 'Well, I never before knew you to enre so much for other creatures,' laughed Chink. " 'I'm feeling sorry for make-believe creatures, not for real ones,' grinned Zeppy. "'Did you hear thnt the youngest kitten of Mrs. Black Cat was playing with a key she got out of the pantry door nnd that she lost It and thnt "no one could get Into the pantry and there was a terrible time? They had to break the lock.' "Why, what exciting news you have to tell. No, I didn't hear that. Well, well, and did thoy send the kit ten to bed without any milk for sup per? " "They didn't for she was too young, she didn't know any better.' "'Ah, It. Is nice to be friends, isn't It, Zeppy?' "'Fine, fine, meow, me-ow,' said Zeppy. 'But It Is beyond me ns I said In the first place to understand creatures like mosquitoes and flies who get all the hints that they aren't wanted and still haven't pride enough to stay away.

WHEN the quest Is on for negli gees, one never knows whnt quarter of the globe, at the next step, will call attuntlon to Its costumes. Just around t lie corner of the show case In which some graceful, and per haps daring, bit of French finery has held' our attention, we are apt to come upon a dazzling creation from the Far Knsf. It may call up pictures of old Egypt to the mind or beckon us to fair Japan, or send us an echo from the shores of China, or from coun tries not so remote. It Is nearly al ways an adaptation, and not a true copy of Its original, but more enticing because of this, all hough we are Im porting many klmnnas made to our order In Japan and Indulging In gen uine mandarin coats resplendent with the patient work of the Chinese.

But these additional colors are very promising, for they do wonders In improving the complexion. It re mains for the blonde or brunette and the brune-blonde, of whatever type, to experiment with the new colors and find out Just how much they will do to clear up or brighten or set off her skin and Just how well they will har monize with eyes and hnlr. It Is the short face veil that has made this excursion Into the realm of color, thereby Increasing Its ability to be fluttering. They ure woven with black or white or colored mesh, and many of them have nil-over dots In a contrasting color. Among the col ored mesh veils there are the henna shades, brown, light and deeper blues, orchid, green, tan, beige, gray, navy and black. Against these colored meshes, and white' ones, small colored dots are placed, scattered more or less thickly or arranged In border designs. Coming Down.

It oppearr on the trousers In deep and graceful cuffs. There Is nothinr dlffcult or Intricate about this pretty compliment to the dress of the Chinese, and who ever aspires to doing a little masque rading, by way of variety, might make It and wear It within her own four walls. If one locks the inclination for oddi ties of dress, or has no time for In dulging In them, the two most practi cal styles In negligees ore the modi fied Japanese klmona and the long boudoir or breakfast cout of taffeta silk or wash satin.

In the floating veils, with nil-over or border embroidery, like those shown above, the popular preference Is for quiet colors. Black, beige, gray, navy and brown account for most of them, with black and beige the best liked; but for lute summer navy blue Is apt to be the favorite. There Is never a summer when black and white or navy and white fail to have a following In the world of millinery ; they are cool, brilliant combinations that follow colorful spring headwear as surely as night follows day, and navy veils with white or tan or beige colored hats one may choose with assurance for midsummer wear.
