Thc boys who used lo collect stamps nnd coins are now bending their ener? gies to making a collection of street? car transfers. This is the latest fad. It has superseded even the one for cresta and monograms off of letters. The small hoy who has a transfer from New York. Chicago, St. Louis. Detroit, or any o her ol the larger cities, is regarded with envy by his fel? lows. If he has one from any of the European cities he is a hero of the highest type. Sometimes the transfers exhibited in sTan-books are nol as immaculate as they might be, and the reason for this it is whispered, is t tat they are often? times picked up out of the gutter in a verv disreputable condition. Then they are taken home and washed off. hut they always show = igns of their con? tact with this wicked world, though that doesn't make them any the less valuable to their young owners.

International Lesson Comments for September 28. Review of the Preceding Twelve Lessons for the Third Quarter, Deut. viii., M6 Golden Text, Deut. viii., 18?lo* troduction and Summary. Introduction.?During the past quartet | we have had several important lessons j The Lord certainly put forth every effort ; in behalf of His people. Their tempora. and spiritual necessities were attended to. : Bread was provided, the commandment! [ given, idolatry punished, a house erected for Jehovah, intemperance punished, th( j promised land viewed by chosen men, a Prophet like Moses promised, and then, 1 finally, Moses, the great lawgiver, wa? called to his reward without having en tered'tipon his earthly inheritance. Summary.?Lesson 1. Topic: Heavenly bread. Places: Elim. The wilderness of sin. The Israelites journeyed from Elim ta the wilderness of sin; they mummied against Moses and Aaron; they feared they would starve in the wilderness and longed to be back in Egypt; the Lord promised to rain bread from heaven; directions were given regarding the gathering of the manna; the Sabbath was to be observed; Mesh was to be given them, also; they were murmuring against the Lord, not against Moses and Aaron. II. Topic: God's covenant with man. Place: Mount Sinai. God spake to the people with His own voice and gave them the ten commandments. This lesson em? braces the first four. 1. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. 2. Thou shalt ' not make tinto thee any graven image. 3. Thou shalt not cake the name of the Lord thy God in vain. 4. Remember the Sab? bath day to keep it holy. III. Topic: The duties we owe to ou* fellow-men. Place: Mount Sinai. This les.on embraces the last six of the ten commandments. 5. Honor thy fathei and thy mother, that thy days may be long uuon the la'nd. 6. Thou shalt not kiil. T. Thou shalt not commit adultery. 8. Thoa shalt not steal. 9. Thou shalt not bear false witness. 10. Thou shalt not covet. The fifth is the only one with a specific promise attached. The tenth deals wholly with the inner life. Covetousness is the great sin of this age. IV. Topic: Israel's idol worship. Place: Mount Sinai. After the ten command PMitta were given to the children of Israel tba Lord called Moaea up into the mount, : where he remained for forty days. The Israelites persuaded Aaron to make a gold? en calf, which they worshiped. Moses j came from the mount, broke the tables of \ the law, called those who were on the | Lord's side to come to hin and punished the^people for their great sin. V. Topic: Setting up the tabernacle. Place: Mount Sinai. Moses commanded thatthe tabernacle be set up; the ark and the furniture was to be put in the taber? nacle; thc altar of burnt offering nnd the lavar were to be put in the court before the tabernacle; Aaron and his sons to be washed with water; Aaron was to he clad with the holy garments, anointed and sanc? tified; all was done exactly as God com? manded. VI. Topic: The consequences of drunk? enness. Place: Mount Sinai. Nadab and Abihu. Aaron's sons, put strange tire in their censors and went in before the Lord; the tire of the Lord devoured them; Aaron commanded not to drink wine or strong drink. God puts a difference between the holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean. VII. Topic: Leaving Sinai for Canaan. Places: Mount Sinai. Paran. The cloud is taken up from off the tabernacle, and the children of Israel leave the wilderness of Sinai and journey to Paran. Moses invites Hobab to accompany them, but he refuses to do so- some things indicate that he changed his mind and went with them. The Lord led His people by day and by night. VIII. Topic: The land of Canaan. Place: Kadesh Barnea. One man from each tribe was sent to search the land of Ca? naan; they were gone forty days; they brought back some of the fruit of the land; they reported that the land was good, but that the people were giants, and that the cities were walled; only Caleb and Joshua thought they were able to go up and pos? sess the land. IX. Topic: Saving Israel from n just punishment. Place: The valley of Arabah. The Israelites are obliged to go to war; some of the Israelites were taken prison? ers; they vow to the Lord; the Canaanites are delivered into their hands; journeying from Mount Hor; the people are discour? aged; they murmur against Moses; thc Lord punishes them by sending fiery ser? pents among them; the people come to Moses for help; Moses goes to God, and is directed to make a serpent and put it on a pole, and "every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it. shall live." X. Topic: True and false worship. Place: East of the Jordan, opposite Jeri icho. The abominations of the heathen are enumerated and positively forbidden by the Almightv. Thc Lord promises to rai*e up a Prophet from their midst, unto whom they should harken. The Lord warns false prophets. XI. Topic: The blessing and the curse. Place: East of the Jordan, opposite Jeri tho. God's commandments are not hidden, and are not afar off; before every one is .et "life and good, and death and evil;" the commandment is given to love God ind walk in His ways; a blessing is prom? ised to those who do, but a curse is pro? nounced upon those who worship other zods and serve them; all are urged to choose'life. XII. Topic: Closing scenes in the life of Moses. Place: Mount Pisgah. Moses goes up froriT-the plains of Moab to tho top of Pisgah; the Lord showed him the land of promise, but told him that he should not y.o over. Moses di^d and the Lord buried him. Moses was 120 years old when he lied; the children of Israel wept for him thirty days. Moses for forty years in the aiMernCM had borne great responsibilities, niffered and endured many privations, and lied just before Israel entered the prom? ised possessions. God's ministt-rs ana peo? ple may spend many weary years in self lacrificing labors to accomplish a glorious work, and die in full view of its comple? tion. Death does not end their work. Toahnaa who are "full of thc spirit of wis? dom." are raised up by the Lord, and set apart by Him to complete the unfinished work of His departed servants. Frenchman Would Tax Kisses. Certain legislators in France are talking ot imposing several new taxes and a political opponent suggests that they put kiBses on ihe schedule of the articles to be taxed. A statistician, he points out, has calculated that 73,85:5.407 kisses are given in France every day, and, if these figures are correct, the national treasury would receive a large amount annually even though only a small tax was imposed on every kisser. He claims, however, that children who kiss their mother should be ex? empt from taxation, and that ten times the ordinary tax should be imposed on men who kiss married women. Ile Knew the Family, Col. M. H. Welsh, of 1-aucaster, once arrived in Steelton, Pa., early In the morning to make arrangements for a circus performance at that place. To obtain his license it was necessary to see the Burgess of the town. The first person he met was a large, burly Virginia negro, who was on hia way to work at the steel works. Colonel Welsh approached the fellow and said: . "Captain, can you tell me where r can find the Burgess of Steelton?" "Say, boss, I is a stranger around here myself, and all I can say ls keep away from dem Burgesses. I was en? gaged to be mahried one time to Mary Elizabeth Burgess and dey ls a peskj lot of niggers."

Dun & Co.'s "Weekly Review of Trade" says: Industrial activity is greater than at any recent date. Many new factories and mills have been added to the pro? ductive capacity, facilities are being in? creased at old plants and idle shops resumed through the settlement of la? bor controversies. A coke blockade still exists, thc rail? ways being unable to handle the output, which is above all records and in ur? gent request. Despite the rapid devel? opment of transportation facilities thc nation's needs have grown still faster and the situation is distressing for ship pcrs and consumers. Retail trade is large, with a bright outlook for the future in jobbing and wholesale business. There are few 0! the cancellations so numerous at this time last year, while collections arc im? proving. Although thc weekly capacity of the pig iron furnaces in blast 6n Septem? ber 1 was reported as 335.189 tons by the "Iron Agc," it has since been ap? preciably curtailed by the inadequate supply of fuel, on which account num? erous furnaces were blown out or at least banked. As consumptive require? ments are increasing, it is necessary tri place orders abroad more extensively, and in some cases the entire <r_:tput 0! foreign plants has been secured. Not only raw material, but billets and even rails, are sought in other markets, Ger? man mills offering the best terms in most cases. New England producers of boots and shoes are insisting on full prices, and some grades that were slow to respond are now sharing the improvement. No sign of weakness is seen in leather, some selections rising still more, par? ticularly the better grades of sole and belting butta Slight reactions have oc? curred in some packer and count r. hides, but most lines are still firmh held. Liberal receipts have not dc pressed foreign dry hides. Low stocks of wheat and poor grad? ing of receipts, together with fears ot frost in corn sections, sustained quota lions when a decline would have been imminent if full confidence were placed in official returns of condition. Failures for the week numbered 20; in the United States, against 193 last year, and 22 in Canada, against 18 a year ago. latestHjijotations.

Through the explosion of a patent Steam peanut roaster Miss Bessie Mc I Grath, of Phoebus, was instantly killed ! it the corner of Main and Atlantic J itreets, Norfolk, about 5 o clock the ! other afternoon. Mrs. A. R. Palmer, _. Lawrenceville, another victim, now lies at the point of death at St. Vin rent's Hospital. The comer of Atlan | tic and Main streets was crowded Witt choppers, mostly women. NY th no .yarning thc explosion came. Parts o' :iic roaster were blown in every direc? tion, and it is a miracle that others tvere not injured. Thc skull ot Mis* McGrath was blown almost to atoms Thc brains were dashed in every dirco tion, and bystanders were covered with blood. Despite the opinion ot Attorney General Anderson to the contrary, the inmates of the Confederate Soldier-, Home, in Henrico County, were al lowed to register. When the question '.?ame up at Shumaker's precinct, io that county, a strong fight was made against thc right of the old soldiers to register under the suffrage clause ol the new constitution. A majority oi tiie board, however, insisted that the in mates of the home who had lived in thc county 12 months were entitled to vote. The names of about 20 of the veterans went on the books, and all of the others will go on when they pre? sent themselves. Miss Mary McCoy, daughter of Mr. John McCoy, of Winchester, and Mr. J. William Norris, of Brunswick, Md., were married at Stephens City by Rev. II. A. Brown. They had intended get? ting married at Kernstown. but no minister could bc found and they drove to Stephen's City. An unusual circum? stance of the. wedding is that upon their return to Winchester the bride received intelligence that her grand? mother. Mrs. Eiza Grove, had just died at Martinsburg. 'Hie groom received a telegram asking him to bc a pall? bearer at thc funeral of his cousin, Miss Mary Dclcher, in Baltimore, and the father of thc best man at the wed? ding, Mr. Robert G. Smith, died. Fire broke out at an early hour the other morning in the residence occu? pied by Mr. F. J. Fortier's family, in Danville. The flames gained consid? erable headway before the fire depart? ment reached the scene, but the build? ing was rescued from total destruction and the furniture wa? saved without damage. The building is the property ol Mr. W. M. Steger. The damage is estimated at $1500 and is fully insured. Thc origin of the fire is unknown. William II. Maddcra. a well-known merchant of Newport News, shot him? self through thc head. His partner heard the shot and ran into the room, j finding Maddera on the floor, thc , blood rushing from a wound in his 1 head. Thc wounded man was taken to the hospital, lt is not thought that he can recover. The cause for Maddera's rash act is believed to have been ill health. At Richmond. Harold Wannan, the 13-year-olrl lad who shot and killed Eddie Carter, a 14-year-old compan? ion, was discharged in thc polite court. Thc evidence seemed to show that the shooting was largely the re? sult of cigarette smoking and dime novel reading. A nolle prosqui was entered in the Hustings Court of Roanoke in the case against Con O'Leary, charged with em? bezzlement. His troubles and indictment grew out of his management of die Roanoke Stock Exchange and bankrupt ing on his creditors. It seems that thc prosecution was unable to make out a case. Thc Stack mine, near Covington, on the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad caved in suddenly and buried four ne? groes. Their bodies have been recov? ered. The other miners were being paid off, and but for this fact the loss of life might have been greater. The superintendent. Walter Cargill, made a narrow escape. No one can explain the accident. Norman CravMi, the pretty little 3 year old son ofror. and Mrs. Michael Craven, of Newport News, stolen by a tramp, was found in thc woods ahou a mile from the house about noon b> Ellen Woodrow, a little girl living at the home. The number of cadets who have re? ported up to the present date at the Virginia Military Institute is 254, with more to enter yet. At Washington and Lee University 246 students have ma? triculated so far. The entire numbers at the schools, respectively, last ses? sion were 243 and 237. Mrs. Sallie Reynods, of Rockbridge county, who was born in 1811, is dead. Mr. Harry Lcddon, of Stafford county, had one side of his face torn by the explosion of a gun, which was caused by overloading. E. M. Taylor, of Manchester, whose five years' absence from home without explanation led his family to mourn him as lost, has just returned, and tells a story of three years' imprisonment by cannibals in one of the Samoan Islands. Mr. Taylor escaped death, but several of his companions were instantly slain upon capture. His escape is due to the fact that one of .he chief's daughters? Yahow, by name?became enamored of him. interceded for his life and was granted the boon by her father. Tay? lor, however, was imprisoned for three years, finally escaping and swimming two miles to a tramp oyster sloop bound for Honolulu. Isaac T. Hottel, of Cavalry, Shenan? doah county, aged about 60 years, flied Sunday. He is survived by two chil? dren?Frank Hottel and Mrs. George Coffman. During the war he served in the Thirty-third Infantry and Sev? enth Cavalry. Charles E. Stuple and Miss Hattie Weaver were married at Craigsvillc, Augusta county. Scott Bradley was acquitted at Lees burg of the charge of murder for which he had been indicted. Thc jury delib? erated only nine minutes. Bradley had been on trial since Friday on an indict? ment for murder because of alleged connection with the lynching of Craven on July 31. Mrs. Mary Timberlakc, wife of D. I VV. Timberlakc, died near Middle way. Jefferson county. She was a daughter \ of the late Richard Timberlakc, of Jet- | ferson county. While seated on the porch of his rc?- | idcr.cc. Mr. John R.

It was but a snort t;me ago hat wc heard nothing but floral ones. :herc was a Rose, a Lily, a Violet, a 'ansy. an Azalea, a Pink and a Gladi ila on every block. There was even a ittlc black haired, scarlet-cheeked Ger nium on one. After a year or two this fad died out -it might be said to have faded?and 'iminutives came into vogue. There /ere Mamies. Lucics. Lizzies, Maggies, ?"lories, Emmies, Nellies and Sadies -alorc. It was shortly after this that ecccn ric spelling became popular, and Ma? nie was Manure; Nellie. Nellyc; Juliet, ulicttc. and Birdie, Birdyc. I iic next fad was a wholesome one, or it brought a revival of old-fash oned names that had been packed iway in cedar chests for years to make oom for thc "ies." I his like most fashions in baptis nals, was carried to an extreme, and mall children staggered under such ppcllations as Elizabeth Anne, Caro inc (usually spelled Carolyn), Martha .liza, Isabella. Sarah, Sophia, Lydia, Priscilla, Maria. Nancy and Dorothy. 1 herc's something sturdy about these hat attracts, however. They have an ir of common sense about them that s equal to an "all-wool-and-a-yard vide" recommendation. Besides, they can be used at all ages cithout making their owner appear idictllous. Elizabeth can bc changed 0 ''Beth" in youth, while it is perfectly itting in old age. but where is the crinkled ami white-haired grandmother rho will not feel foolish when she signs ier name to her last will and testa nctit ?'Lily."

It is almost a miracle that here has not yet been found a mother ;o imbued with historical lore as to lame her little one Cleopatra, but there 1 not one such in thc acquaintance of he writer.

But, hen, what's in a name? Wlmt Her I'ntlier Wu, A little girl who belongs to an In liana family has been interested of late n the nicknames applied to the natives )f different States, and has asked her nother many questions about "Wol -erines" and "Buckeyes" and '"Suck? ers" and dear only knows what else. Recently she was heard talking with i group ol playmates. Thc little girls ?vere evidently discussing their fathers. "My father's ;i minister," said one ittlc girl. "He came from Kentucky, md he's a Christian." "My father's in office," said a second rhild. "I don't know where he came rom, but I guess everybody in office is a Christian.'' This brought the subject up to the ittlc girl of Indiana parentage. It hap? pens that her father had a father who nadc it possible for thc former gentle? man to live without rwy occupation. However, she 'couldn't let thc other swirls brag of their fathers without put? ting in some word tor her own. "My father came from Indianapolis," she said, proudly, "and he's a huckster, ind that's why." Merrill'. Foot Powder. An absoluto cure for all foot trouble?.
