The research of bright minds has given us laws of hygiene with subor dinate rules relutlng especially to the retention and aiqulrcraeut of beauty of face and form, and it belongs to the history of the p.ist for women or men, either, to be ush timed of a desire to 1m prove the appearance. There are many people, however, ho cling to tradition, and who think It a positive duty, after having reach ed the 40th year, to talk ape, adopt age and actually revel In all the stages of decrepitude; but the wiser few have discovered that youth is inliulte, and an reach unto the end of a long life, iK-bldes giving us a guidance over the dark river, to the other ami the fairer orld. The foundation of this preservation of youth is undoubtedly th Mibdiatiilal no of good health, aud upon this we must rear the strm tuie of .our c voted iccomplishment. Temperance, ineullug and drinklrg, excess in nothing, th-i cultivation of bright, beautiful thoughts, the encour agement of laughter IbsUadof tears, will make anyone radiaut, even at the ige of eighty years, showing that the gulf stream maijllow into the Arctic rolou of our lives, if e wish tohaye t do so.

Baltimore Telegram. The Shah's Mlg Oraphoplionc. Tne third machine that has been ex pressly built for the Shah of Persia by the Columbia Phonograph Co if now about to be shinned. It is by far the largest talking machine ever construct ed, and it cannot fall to create a sensa tion when it reaches Teheran. Along side of it the regulation giaphophoncs, even of the Grand typos, look small and unimportant. Tho first special Instrument to bo sent to the Shah was constructed two years ago and was a duplicate of a three-horned machine ol wondcnul workmauship which had been built for xhibltion at the Paris hxhlhltlou of 11)00 The Shah saw it there and was snxious to haye it, but he compromised on a duplicate of it which was ordered later by cable and bhlpptu to i'er&ia a few months later. After something more than a year had elapsed there came an inquiry from I'eheran, for a much larger machine, and while plans for its construction were maturing and a price was being agreed upon an order came for the smallest grapbophone that could be made. -This was duly lurnlshed and went forward with ttu i t suit that a third order was received, this last for the very largo grapbophone, with cur tain modifications, the lu lding of which had b.en under consideration for some months Tne records are about four times ab long as the usual cylind ers and they are much larger in diame ter. The machine is equipped witn the latest stylo of reproducer and the vocal and Instrumental telections are rendered with surp iVng fidelity and In a faultless in .oner. This shloment will consist of the mammoth graphnphone, a horn of ap propriate dimensions and a generous uonlv of records and blanks. Tho Shah is already better qni pp. d with graphophom s than any oiher ruler in the world, aud when nis latest purcna-o reaches his palace there will bo none t compete with him.
