They bring , out the worst that is in them because, they ap peal to the worst. They appeal to all that is frail, weak, timid and unlov able in their nature, by catering to their selfishness, indulging every whim no matter how unreasonable or vic ious by doing everything for them in stead of allowing them to do things for themselves and thus strengthen their faculties and power of self-re liance. They are allowed to stay at home from school when they "play" sick, as so many children do, and are petted and coddled and fussed over, when there Is really nothing the matter with them. If they fall or hurt themselves they are sympathized with and en couraged to cry, by expressions of pity, instead of being taught to bear a lit tle pain or hurt bravely and manful ly and not to whimper like a weak ling. In a hundred such ways weak, fool ish pa renta cultivate the selfishness of their children, until they become un- tbearable; they destroy Iheir courage and self-reliance; make cowards and weaklings -of them -and pare the' way for their destruction. Many men and women have lived to curse in bitterness of heart the weak, criminal indulgence of over-fond pa rents, who were the primal cause of their ruin. Do not do for your children what they ought to do for themselves, but help them to help themselves. Do not allow them to trample on the rights of others in order to gratify their own selfish desires. . Show them the beauty of the Golden Rule, and Insist upon their practicing it in their games, with their playmates and with older people. Teach them to respect the rights of others; and don't forget that they also have rights which should be respected. Orison Swett Marden,' in "Success Magazine." Seme Wedtlkt Rlaaj History. To wedding rings there has been often attached a value even unto death. One of the smallest wedding rings of which there is record was that fitted to the finger of Mary, daughter of Henry Till, who at the age of two years, was solemnly wedded amid much pomp and splendor to Francis I. of France, who had just attained the dig nity of six months. Attending the little bride were her father and mother, Hen ry and Catherine of Aragón, and Marie of France, mother of the bridegroom. the bridttgcoana Mmirif wa not pres ent at .the cermony, tut "hVs place was taken by -Aatnirai Boanivet, who -acted as proxy and placed upon the -finger of the little princess a tiny wedding ring, set with a magnificent diamond. Car dinal Wolsey performed the ceremony, at which the whMe court was present. Though gold ' Is the metal generally j tccepted for wedding rings, various ther materials .have done service in Its stead. There is one story of an eloping bride, for whom a ring was im provised from her own leather glove. the church key has frequently done similar duty, and brass curtain rings have been many times substituted for a circlet of more valuable material. By giving his wife a ring, a husband is supposed to take her fully Into his confidence. The fact that the left band has been chosen to wear It, signifies that as the left is weaker than the right, so- is a wife subject to her hus band, while the third finger has been selected because of on old superstition that from the third finger of the left hand runs a vein directly to the heart. Just how the plain gold band came to be chosen as proper for wedding rings is not absolutely known. It has descended to us from early Anglo-Saxon times and probably w.is adopted be cause its simplicity made It most avail able as a uniform symbol. TERRITORIAL OFFICIALS. Governor Hon. R. E. Sloan.

The Blenheim spaniel got his name from Blenheim palace, where this dog first gained popularity in the time of the great Duke of Marlborough. In the same way the King Charles spaniel owes its name to the merry monarch. Fox terriers did not gain their names from a likeness to the fox, but from the fact that formerly they were used in hunting foxes. Many years ago they were sent by their mas ters down the fox's burrow to draw and kill their quarry. It was in those days a saying that a good fox terrier never came out of a burrow without the fox. He either brought out his prey dead or never came out alive him self. The bulldog used to drive cattle and was trained to meet the rushes of his enormous charges by gripping them in their most vulnerable spot the nose. Thus in time he became known as the bulldog. The dachshund is a German dog, and. as his name indicates whea translated, -was used for. hunting badgers. Hence his name-badgeT-dog. Among-Jumters tn-thft Faf hurlara! this breed is U1I popular, although, -as a rule, they are now too delicate to face such a ferocious fighter as the badger. Spits dogs are so named owing to their sharp noses. This is also a Ger man name, spitz meaning sharp pointed. Another name for this breed Is Dalmatian dog. because his native home was in Dalmatla.
