The minister's 0-year-old son js Of a tery critical , literal turn of mind , and InJs father's sermons sometimes puzzle him sorely. He regards his father as the embodiment of truth and wisdom , but he has difficulty in harmonizing the dominie's pulpit utterances with the rworld as it really is. Ills parents en courage him to express his opinions and clear up his doubts as much as pos sible. So one Sunday at dinner , after a long period of thought , they were sur prised when 'he said gravely , "Papa , you said one thing in your sermon to day that I don't think is so at all. " "Well , what's that , my boy ? " asked the clergyman. "Why , papn , you said , 'The boy of to-day is the man of to-morrow. ' That's too soon. " Pittsburg Post The Uaual Experience.

HE St. Louis judge who has just expressed a judicial degree of impatience with the silly pretexts for divorce which are often brought before him , expresses one of the most profound facts of the grievous situa tion which is called by courtesy the "divorce problem. " That there is such a thing as a divorce problem in tlie world is not to be denied , but It is not raised in one case out of twenty which are brought Into the courts for settlement. The statutes of nearly all of the States leave judges with little or no discretion. The word "incompatibility" is a very broad and inconclusive one , and can be made to cover , or at least is made to cover , a multitude of acts , either mutual or on the part of one member of an unhappy pair to ward the other , indicating perversity , obstinacy , selfish ness or other things which may be aggravating , but which raise no problems for judicial settlement The Biblical ground of divorce , cruelty and improvi dence are the only ones which the courts should be called to consider. It may be safely assumed that a husband who drags his wife into court on trivialties which a real man could easily compose with a real woman , lacks those elements of manhood which would make living with him desirable or even tolerable. This is equally true of , a woman in the sense that a woman capable of such an act has lost that feeling of regard a wife should hold toward the partner of her joys and sorrows. But divorce is another question. Let those who cannot live together live apart , but let them feel that the marriage tie Is something more binding than a shoestring. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. AMERICAN WASTEFULNESS. | T is a frequent statement that the family of" a European working man can live on what the family of the American working man throws away. Whether this be true or not , it is certain that French-Canadians , Italians , Russian Jews , Germans , Swedes and many other for eigners who arrive in the United States with barely enough money to enable them to pass the immigration Inspectors , are soon found to have bank accounts and to be owners of real estate and proprietors of businesses. The national neglect of small ways to save is the result of the great natural wealth and resources of the country. But these are not inexhaustible , and if any one thing has distinguished the industrial progress of the last quar ter-century above other things it is the discovery of the possibilities which lie in waste and by-products. Streams are no longer clogged with sawdust and slabs from saw mills ; there Is no refuse from the modern slaughter house ; every scrap of leather left from a hide cut in a great shoe factory is saved and made useful. In personal life progress has not advanced so far. The old fashion of a "best suit" and best shoes and hat is disappearing ; and so is the habit of a "best room. " The papers used to print stories of the employer who re warded his office boy for coiling up aud preserving twine and folding up bits of wrapping paper. Now they tell of the employer who scolds the boy for wasting time that is worth more than what he saves. Very likely it la to the employer ; but to the boy the value of the habit of saving was worth much. No one would wish to encourage niggardliness ; but wise self-restraint , the rejection of luxuries which add little or nothing to well-being , the disregard of senseless conventionalities and the cheerful acceptance of the less expensive thing if it serves its purpose these are not only sure steps toward prosperity , but constant and im portant accessions to strength of character Youth's Companion. DHUDGES NOT NEEDED. OUNG John D. Rockefeller in a published interview the other day , urged young men "to zeal and industry" as the pathway to "success. " This philosophy has been preached so often from the depth of sleek waistcoats , that the general public accepts it almost as axiomatic. But the young man with his career to be carved out would do well to stop and think that zeal and industry do not necessarily mean drudgery. The fellow who vol untarily makes a drudge of himself is apt to be taken at his own estimate as low-grade ore. The virgin stuff doesn't have to be ground to powder to get out its value. The man who is most valuable to his employer and the one who is apt to rise to the top in any business is the one who is careful to get all the sleep that nature requires to replace the tissues burnt up In the day's work , who makes time to get Into the open air and draw strength and inspiration from nature , who finds relaxa tion with his domestic joys , and who returns to his work with a clear brain and a steady nerve , ready to meet emergencies , capable of giving valuable meutal .effort to _ the matters that come up , and of rising once ? 3 a while above the level of ordinary things and routine matters. There are millions who can tread the mill , but com paratively few who can devise ne / machinery. Phila delphia North American. THE QUESTION OF THE DEATH PENALTY. EVERAL of the most influential newspapers of Paris are urging the restoration of the death penalty in France. The Gaulois thinks "the abolition of the death penalty has done nothing but cut the sinews of justice and en courage crime. " "It is incontestable , " de clares the Intranslgeant , "that the convic tion that those sentenced to death will neverbe exe cuted has brought the bludgeon , the revolver and the dagger Into such prominence in the police reports as to menace public security. " These journalistic views are the echoes of like opin ions uttered by French officials and social critics which the Literary Digest has collected. M. Goron , ex-Chief of Police , thinks the experiment of going without the guillotine has gone far enough and has been disastrous. M. Marcel Prevost argues the right of man to destroy human creatures that menace life even as he may de stroy noxious vermin and dangerous animals. New York World.

" 'My father used to reason with me , " d the man with the beard. 'So would mine , " said the man with flannel waistcoat "He'd appeal to reason nearly every time.

That stands to reason , doesn't it ? ' " ' ' 'Yessir. ' "Exactly. Then the result of this particular piece of mischief will be a licking. Not a perfunctory paddling , but a thorough licking that will make you stop and consider carefully in fu ture every time you throw a ball In the direction of a house. ' "Then the performance would begin and I'm bound to say that I did stop to think what I was throwing at from that time on. He laid on good and hard. Mother used to tell him he was too severe , but he couldn't see It 'Non sense ! ' he'd say. 'When I was a boy my father used to lick me , and I often think I didn't get half enough. ' That's the way my father raised me. " "That's natural enough , " commented the man with the beard. "I suppose we all think our children ought to be raised the way we were. We know we came out all right" "I wouldn't go so far as to say that , " said the man in the flannel waistcoat "I don't think that I'm a perfect specimen , but I do think that there's a good deal of bosh about this moral-suasion business for children. Children need a licking every now and then. It does 'em good. I'd give mine a good deal more than they do get if it wasn't for one thing. " "What's that ? " "Well , their grandfather won't stand it Pie seems to think they ought be allowed to do what they like and he says he won't see 'em abused. Of course I don't like to hurt the old man's feelings. " Chicago Daily News. Sen Gives Up Its Wealth. "Californians have solved the prob lem of the alchemists and are making gold out of sea water , " says William Briggs , writing in the Technical World Magazine. "The Golden State has taken golden treasure out of her mountains , has made her valleys yield millions of dollars' worth of golden fruit , has amassed tourist gold In exchange from her sunshine , and now turns to the great lazy Pacific and ransacks its cof fers. "There is no rush of prospectors to the new field , however , as the gold Is coming out of the sea in the form of salts of potassium , magnesium and bro mide , which would elude the pan and the rocker of the prospector. "Of several 'diggings' of this nature , one at least Is active and prosperous and one Is approaching activity. The San Pedro Salt Company , which recent ly entered Into the field , has succeeded in manufacturing a quantity and qual ity of salt which has found a ready market and has already assumed a place among the exports of the port of San Pedro. The fact that San Pedro is a lively and thriving port , with al most no outgoing cargoes , makes the development of this trade both easy and Important Since the first of last year the coasting schooners returning to the northern coast have taken away over a thousand tons of this sea salt. " VIENNA TO SELL COAL. City Making Radical Experiments in Municipal Ownership. There would seem to be no end to Vienna's new experiments fn the field of municipal ownership , says the Pall Mall Gazette. Only within the last few days negotiations have been com pleted for the purchase by the city of the business of the two largest under taking companies , and now comes the news that the City Council is serious ly contemplating the establishment of a gigantic municipal wholesale coal business to counteract the manlpula- tions of the coal trust It was at first suggested that the city should acquire coal mines , but as that was found to be impracticable , the project of buying direct from colleries outside the trust was mooted. Vienna consumes yearly from 1,200- 000 to 1,500,000 tons of coal , nearly a third of which is taken by the munici pality for the gas works , electric light ing , tramways , heating of the schools and public buildings and other pur poses. It is proposed that after sup plying Its needs In these directions , the city should sell coal to small dealers , thereby saving the public from the fre quent Increases in price made by the trust dealers. Besides getting its coal cheap at the mines , the city expects that the govern ment would make special freight ratia for sending coal to Vienna. Text from Brother Dickey.

According to a bulletin issued by the forest service of the Agricultural De partment , every person in this country is using over six times as much wood as the individual consumption in Europe , and the country as a whole consumes over three times what the forests of the United States grow during the year. The consequence of this policy is an inevit able timber famine. It is pointed out that the increased population since 1880 is barely more than half the increase in lumber cut , so that the increase of for- est destruction cannot be explained en tirely on the theory of increased popu lation. The Northeastern States have passed their maximum production , and the Southern States are near their max imum , while the State of Washington now ranks first in the volume of timber cut. At present one-fifth of the total for- est area is owned by the government. Q The average age of trees felled for lum ber this year is not less than 150 years. The Nesro and the Kciv South.

" He said he had the experience of being told that no north erner can understand the negro as well as those who have lived with them all their lives , and then of finding "that these men rarely knew anything about the better class of negroes , those who were in busines or in independent occu pations , and who owned their own homes. " On the other hand , the best negroes did not know the higher class of the white people in the South , and based their suspicion and hatred upon the acts of the "poor white trash. " To this he attributes the danger of the present sit- * t uation. . ft Sparks from the "Wires.- Esther Carter , daughter of E. R.

According to old Irish historians the shamrock was a staple article of food hi Ireland before the introduction of potatoes ? , and its free use Is responsible for the strength and fleetness of foot that has always distinguished the sons of that "tight little isle. " Campion in his "History of Ireland , " dated 1571 , says in speaking of the food of the common people : "Shamrocks , water- cresses and other herbs they feed upon ; oatmeal and butter they cram to gether. " - Lovbel , the Flemish botanist , who- was the first botanist writer to mention the plant , after enumerating the vari ous trefoils , purple and white , says of the latter : "The Irish grind the flow ers and leaves Into a meal , which they knead with butter when vexed and maddened with hunger. " The nourish ing qualities of the plant are alsot fathered from the statement of the- Earl of Antrim during the siege of Munster by the Duke of Argyle , to the effect that as long as shamrocks were available there need be no apprehen sion regarding the food supply. While authorities differ as to whether the edible shamrock of those stirring times was the wood sorrel , the watercress or the little Irish sham rock , trifolium repens or trlofolimn minus is immaterial. The fact remains that something in the national diet has contributed to give its women complex ions of roses and cream and its men daring and strength. DB. TALKS OF FOOD. Prea. of Board of Health.
