Secrets Ttut the Telltale Lines About the Lips of a Woman Reveal. _ HOW TO MAKt THEM FRAGKANT. There are women whoee moutha do noi- euggeat roaea. The main fault ia the shape. The roaebud mouth should be rather ahort and a little wider than it ia long. It ia a little ahort tobe claa sic. The trouble with the faulty mouth ia generally F.rat ita ahape, then its ex preeaion, and lastly ita appointmenta. The mouth should be fllled with rowa of white, eren teeth. The lips ahould be a deep pink, morepink than red. The roaebud mouth suggeata the roae? bud in other waya than in ahape and coior. It muat have the scent of the roee. Women who can afTord it acent the lips with a drop of attar of roaea. The attar being slightly oily will not dry out the lipa. It may keep them from chapping. and it certainly makca them pink and fragrant. Women who do not want to spend half a dollar a drop oo attar can do very well with aubetitUtee. A drop of any oily perfume will do the work nicely. Oil of roae geranium iaone aub atitute. Of oourae one muat not uae a heavy aweet odor. Then the peraonality of a woman muat be taken into account. One drop of the oil of jeaaamine just auita one woman. Othera prefer apice, and if not uaed crudely there ia a cer tain faecination about thaalight odor of ipice. The woman of judgment will be care ful of the ck?ve or the atick of cinna mon. She can uae both or either, in connection with violet. A atrong clove odor ia not to be deeired by the woman. The roaebud mouth muat hare no wrinklee around it. There are women who carry a great number of dtop wrinklee alwaya around the mouth. Theae are the aet wrinklea of deter mination. Theae are the ahape of pa rentheaea, and they aurround the mouth sa though one had marked around it with a pencil. The determination wrin? klea look aa though they were there to ?tay. aa they generally are unleaa treated. There are wrinklea that are really marka of happineaa. They are the smtHng wrinklea There are alwaya a few dtmplea along theae happy linea, and the laughing woman need not worry about them. They are pretty, and people wiil tell her ahe haa a happy look. There are other wrinklea that are not of happineaa. There waa a woman who once had a roaebud mouth. One day a couple of teeth were taken out on the aame aide of the mouth. The reeult waa a erooked mouth. No mouth can atand two mieeing teeth on the aame aide. The lips drew a little to one aide, and when the woman amiled there waa an expreaaion of eourneas. It took a dentiat and a maaseuae to atraighten her face. If a woman has a erooked mouth her ftrat trip ahould be to the dentiat. She will of courae aeek a coametic dentiat who airas to make ber face better look ing. Moat dentiata merely aupply fill ings regardleaB of looka, but the right kind of dentist will do work that doea oot show. No mouth looks like a rosebud aa long as there ia a deep wrinkle extend ing from the noae to the mouth. It ia eel dom aeen in the young, but it ia almoat alwaya preaent in the face of maturity. Mouth wrinkles are treated entirely diff erently f rom other wrinkles because they are of diff erent origin. They are dispoaitioo wrinkles. You can judge a woman'a disposition by them. "Don't marry a woman whose mouth ia set in deep round and round lines," advised a phrenologist. "Such a woman will have too much of a will of her own. "Don't marry a woman with a line running down one side of her mouth to her chin. Such a woman will be cranky. She will have opiniona. Marry a woman with an evenly balanced mouth. "Don't marry a woman whose mouth iinea are heavy and whoae upper lip ia long. Thia means aelfiahnesa. The prominent mouth and the retreating chin in all caaes mean that a woman ia looking out for heraelf and her own intereata. "Don't marry a woman whoae Iinea are like apider weba encloaing the mouth aa in a network. Thia meana that the woman ia a worrier. "Marry a woman with a ripe red mouth set in a tranquil face. Don't be afraid to tell your wife after you are married that you married her for her pretty mouth. The woman who knows that her mouth is pretty will be much more apt to preserve her beauty than the one who is in ignorance of the fact that a good mouth ia her chief feature." BEWARE. YOUNG MEN. We heard one of our young men mak ing sport of religion in front of our affice the other day. His moustache had just began to aprout and judging from his talk his mental faculties were not aa well developed as his moustache. During our brief atay upon earth we have aeen many just such young men :old in death. We have seen the atheist at rest in his casket, but before being consigned to their last resting place they have all been carried through the doora of a church and had prayera said over them. This young man could scoff at religion in his strength and beauty of health, but if the dark angel ihould get after him he would instinc tively regret what he said and look into the future with fear and trembling. When one stands before the open door of eterntty hisdesire to scoff at religion vanishes. We admit there are bad men in the church, but even theae black sheep in the fiock might be blacker if they were outside. No young man or old one either, shouldcondemn the noble efforts the army of Chriatian men and women are making towardB bettering the condition of things, and whether we attend church or not but few of us would deaire to live in a community arhere there was no church. Young man, in the future, if you must scoff at re? ligion, please get a JittU? further from our office if you do not want to see your name in print.?Exchange. WfllSTLE HERE.

DISINFECTION BY SULPHUR. At this aeaaon of the year, at leaat in early apring the premiaes of the houaehold in the process of cleaning, ahould be disinfected as well. Though formaldehyde and formalin are chiefly uaednow, avery cheap affective method is disinfection by sulphur. Cellars, rootue which have been closed and unused through the winter may very properly be treated by this method. Moisture is eaaential to convert the sul? phur dioxide into sulphurous acid aa it comes in contact with ateam. This may be accomplished by aetting a large aized wash tub, two-thirds full of boil ing water in the center of the room to be disinfected, stretch lines across the room?avoiding the center as a precau tion against fire?upon which to hang cloths dipped in the boiling water. For a room ten f eet square use three pounds of common roll sulphur, broken into lumps size of a hickory nut, put it into an iron pan, pour a little alcohol over it and aet it on a board placed across the tub (an additional precaution against fire) and after all the openings in the room?including the keyhole?have been cloaed, touch a match to it and leave the room. closing the door tightly after. The room should remain closed for about six hours, after which the windows and doors can be thrown open, the room aired and it is again ready for occupancy. WERE ENGAGED FIFTY YEARS.

But folks walk there with their h(ads bowed 'ow, And heavy eyelids wet, For every corner is haunted so In thi8 "The Land of Regret." They meet the ghosta of thoae other years In dreama of memory sweet, And wet with passionate. frenzied tears The gravea which He at their feet; But never. long aa their lives shall last, Can they again forget, Who once have walked with ghosts of the Past In thia "The Land of Regret." They feel the touch of a hand grown 8t.ll, (Its fingers softly press) ? The tender paasion of kiases thrill Their own in a fond caresa. Ah me! but pity the folks who atray Where long the sun hath aet, And walk with the ghoata who're laid away In thia "The Land of Regret." "CLOD-HOPPER" NOT THE RIGHT NAME. Last week, while I waB harrowing the land for com, which quite natur ally, waa very rough and cloddy, and managing to step upon and to cruah as many clods as was possible while walk ing back and forth through the field, I was hailed by a gentleman driving along the road, who exclaimed, "That does not look very much like hopping clods!" And while I stood there woodering what he meant, he further explained that he'd rather think I waa a clod-crusher. Then I caught on, and said "Very fine, I never thought of that before." But, I wantc.d to know more, so I con aulted the dictionary and learned that the name clod-hopper applies to a rude, ruatic fel)ow, a plowman. I preBume the gentleman who hailed me thought I should be hopping over clods to correspond with my name, "Clod-hopper." Very well then, I'll be a "clod crusher" hereafter, and I tell you fel low farmers, it would be a very good idea for us all to be clod-cruahera, or at any rate acquire the habit of cruah ing clods one way or other. In driving acroas the country one obaervea how many acres planted to com without loosening and mixing the soil whatevtr. That's not scientific farming, and one cannot expect the best resulta from the land. A great future is aaaured the young man who learns to farm intelligently and scientifically and he need never be ashamed of himself to wear over-alls or walk across the fields crushing clods or pulling up weeds, with the sweat on his brow, for he ia answering to a high calling. ? A Fellow Clod-hopper, in Sua aex Standard. CONCERNING COMETS. What is a comet? It is a heavenly txxly mostly surrounded by tail. A :omet's tail haa length and breath, but 10 thickness, being so thin you can see ;hrough it. Astronomers have not yet liacovered whether the comet wags the :ail or the tail wags the comet, and Lhey are not trying to, becauae it would fo on just the aame if they did. The iifference between a comet's tail and a :ocktail ia so apparent that if you went jp to the rail and called for a comet'a :ail, the barkeeper would be likely to tell you that you had 'em again and to get out of there. The part of a turkey that gets over the fence laat ia the tail end, but the tail end of a comet ia not so easy to locate. Usually a comet's tail is as harmleas as a rabbit's, but the one now awishing through the sidereal heavens is said to be compoaed targely of twenty-eent gas and is dan gerous to life. Thia aounds like a Con solidated Gas Company's hint for doijar gas, and maybe it is. We shall know more about it when the earth gets into the gas-belt of the comet. Do not attempt to step on a comet's tail, becauae no one knows what might happen if you did. And do not try to drive a comet the way you want it to go, as you would a steer, by twisting its tail. The reason is obvious. A comet does not use its tail to shoo the flies away, becauae there are no fiies on a comet, even when it gets near the Milky Way. Several million persons have recently suggested in print and elsewhere that a comet may be caught by putting aalt on its tail, but nobody has done it becauae nobody seems to want to catch a comet and wouldn't know what to do with it if they did catch it. Besides, it may be a joke to say that. However, a comet's tail ia no short story and cannot all be told in one writing. P. S. We do not believe any editor in this country would havespace to print a comet's tail, anyhow. ?W. J. Lampton, in June Lippincott's. JL'NE EVERYBODY'S. With the June number, Everybody's Magazine celebrated its eleventh birth day, and the end of the seventh year under the present ownership. It marka the event with a significant coverntter ance and an interesting expression from the publishers elsewhere, in addition to putting forth one of the best numbers of the magazine yet issued. "South westward Ho!" is an illustrated article by Herbert Kaufman calculated to do juatice to the stirring movement into that part of the country. "TheCoatof Women'a Clothea." by Emily Post, will help to clarify at least one of the finan cial problems of the day. Judge Ben. B.

TEMPERANCL Workmen in the big distilleries of Washington have agreed not to drink more than two mugs of beer a day whilat at work. A temperance object lesson to drinkers. In the early days in Virginia every body had the right to make and sell liquor. A little later a Iicense to keep a tavern carried with ittheobligation, not the privilege, to furnish the gueata with a specined amouht of rum or wine at each meal. When nnally the traffic in intoxicanta waa made the subject of Ii? cense and tax it was a revenue measure and waa viewed as a restriction on the general right rather than the granting of a particular favor. When the saloonkeepers have expell ed from their organization, big and lit? tle, men who violate the law, the men who corrupt politics, the men who atuff ballot boxes, the men who invade pro hibition territory with their whiakey bottlea and beer casks and poisoned drinks. then their accuaatlona againat the Anli-Saloon Lcague can be heard with aome patience.

I aaked him if he didn't have any friends, and he said, "No, only relatives." Went into a dentist'a and asked how much he would charge to pull a tooth that was aching. "Two dollara," he replied. "That's too much." Then the dentist said he would pull two teeth for I hree dollara, and I told him to go ahead. "Doctor," aaid the patient, upon whom the hoapital surgeon had just op erated for appendicitis, "you're the aame surgeon that amputated the first nnger of my right hand when I had it cruahed in a railroad accident a few months ago, ain't you?" "Y^s," answered the surgeon. "Well, you got my index then, and now you've got my appendix. I hope yeu are satisfied. ? Chicago Tribune. AVERAGE STRENGTH OF MAN. The average strength of a man increa ses with age, and then begins to de :line. The average youth of seventeen has a lifting power of 280 pounds ac cording to Harper's Weekly. By his twentieth year his power has increased to such a degree that he should be able to exert a lifting power of 320 pounds, while his maximum power is reached in his thirtieth or thirty-sixth year, 355 pounds. His power then falls but eight pounds by the time he is forty. From forty to fif ty the decrease of power has dropped to 330 pounds. The average power of a man of fifty is equal to that of a youth of twenty. From fifty to sixty on it be? gins to decline more rapidly.

"THEY THAT GO DOWN TO THE SEA IN SHIPS." A beautiful custom, aasociated with the observance of Memorial day, has within recent years become eatabliahed in Glouceater, Maaa. Flowera are gathered and atrewn upon the watera of the harbor in memory of the men of the fishing fleet who have aailed for the Banks and never come back. The aen timent which conceived this custom is pictured in a larger, nptional aenae on the cover of the Memorial Day Number of The Youth's Companion. Columbia is there depicted acattering flowera on the sea m memory of her sona whose graves are in the unfathomed depths of ocean.
