their father a great deal
of trouble. They were

by hard work. These three bad brothers
were a constant trouble to their father, and
the latter tried hard to get rid of them. He
had olten asked them to leave home and
seek their fortune elsewhere, but they knew
where their nest was feathered and their
bread was buttered, bo they 6tayed where
These three had another brother, howerer
whose same was Brave-and-True. He was
the youngest of the four, but he was worth
100 times more than his brothers. He was
his father's right hand man in the business;
he was his mother's delight and pride, and
everybody who knew him prophesied that
some day he would bring Conor to me
family, while his brothers would probably
disgrace their name.
One day, while the whole family was at
home, a king's messenger passed along, and
as he came in front of the house he stopped
"Xhe King, our illustrious lord and
august monarch, commands me to proclaim
to all his faithful and obedient subjects that
lnt nirit hisnnlr-Han!hter. the beautiful
f " lieonore, was stolen Ironi tne royaicaauc
The Death of the Giant.
Nobody knows where she is, and the King
Mesires the young men of his realm to go
forth and find her. Whosoever brings the
Princess back will be made Prime Minister,
and the King promises also to give his
daughter to him who restores her."
When the lather of the four brothers
heard this he turned around toward his
three eldest boys, saying :
"Now, there is a chance for you to gain
glory, a lortune and to be the King's son-in-law."
The hoys, however, found a great many
objections. Lazybones stretched himself and
hinted that it would be an awfully tiring
job hunting for a princess when nobody
knew where she was; Insolence said that
there would probably have to be fighting
done before she -could be rescued, and Good-for-Nothing
objected on general principles.
However, the father at last persuaded them
to go anyhow; and, giving them each a
large sum of money and a sword, they
promised to set out.
In the meantime nobody had taken notice
of young Brave-and-True. "When he heard
the" King's proclamation he went into the
house and sat down on a chair, burying his
bead in his hands. The truth was that
lieonore, the princess, and he were lovers
and there never were two people so fond of
each other as Brave-and-True and Leonore.
After he had considered the awful calamity
which had belallen his lady-love, heat once
resolved to leave home and not return until
he had recovered her, no matter where she
might be. Thus he went away also.
When the three left their home they BPnt
to the nearest livery stable and bought a
large carriage with four horses. They were
too lazy to walk or ride. After they had
traveled several days they were stopped on
the road one day by a crippled old lady
who was sitting by tfie wayside.
"Will you please give me a lift?" she
said. "I am awfnlly tired and unable to
walk any further."
"Give'you a lift, you old hag? Get out
of our way, or we will kill you under our
"The poor old lady sighed and crawled
aside to let the carriage pass. But she was
a mighty fairy, and she resolved to punish
the three impolite boys. They had not ad
vanced more than a hundred yards, when
suddenly the horses took fright and ran
away. The three were thrown from the
carriage, and they fell into a pit by the way
side. This pit was very deep,"and they
could not come out of it.
Not long after, while the fairy was sitting
by tne roaasiae, young iJrave-and-Xrue
came by on horsback. His horse galloped
as fast as possible.
"Hold on, young man," cried the fairy,
"will vou please give me a lift. I am so
J;'"Certainly, my dear madam," the young
rider immediately replied. He jumped off
his horse and lifted her into the saddle.
Then he mounted behind her, and soon the
two hurried away.
"Where are you going to?" after a while
.asked the old lady, and young Brave-and
.True told her that he intended to find the
"lost Princess and rescue her.
"Well, you give me the horse's reins I
will take you there; but we must hurry, be
cause if we arrive at the place after 1 o'clock
we will be too late."
"Do you know where she is?" asked
"Yes, I do. She was stolen by the'Giant
or the Cliffs and he has her in his castle.
But never mind, I will make your horse go
fast enougn, ana we win oe in time.
Then the lairy muttered a few words and
beheld in the nest second the horse had a
pair of large wings. It flew up from the
ground and coursed through the air as last
as a swallow.
, "It is now a quarter of 1!" said the young
-man; "do you think we shall be in time?"
"I think so; we.only have to fly about
1,000 more miles." Then addressing the
hone, she said: "Now fly ahed, my pet,
flv. fly to the cliff on high.'-'
No sooner had the animal heard these
words than it gave one jump over a distance
of 500 miles; then another, and to the as
tonishment of Brave-and-True he saw a
big castle standing be'ore tbem on the cliff.
"Now, hurryl" said the fair; "here take
this wonderful sword and march rieht in
through the gate: Whatever dares ' to ob
struct vour road, slay them; nothing can
witbstandtbat sword. When you get into
tliecastlefun through all the rooms until
Tou'find the giant. Xou will discover him
fislfeepTnow, until 1 o'lock, Kill him as
quickly as you can, because if you wait un
til after 1, the sword has lost its charm, and
the giant will be too strong for you. Now
hnrrr, and do not forget the Princess."
Brave-and-True hurried into the castle as
fast as he could. A whole army of giant
soldiers attacked him at the entrance, but
with his wonderful sword he killed them all
in one stroke. Then he got into the hall
and here a big lioa jumped at ma, out He
al!0 fell by the sword. Next he was at
tacked by a tieer, but again the sword
served him well. It was now about one
minute to 1 o'clock, and he had not fonnd
the room of the giant. He ran and ran
irorn place to place. His hair stood on end,
his heart almost leaped into his throat.
Still he ran faster and faster. He opened
another door and there he saw the giant, but
at the same time the clock struck 1. The
giant awoke, but while he was still stretch
ing himself and rubbing his eyes, the young
man jumped forward, and with one stroke
of the wonderful sword he killed him.
Then he went to the Princess, who was
sitting in a large chair beside the giant.
The poor girl was frightened to death, and
large tears rolled down her beautiful pinky
velvet cheeks, but when she saw the young
Brave-and-True all fear vanished and both
left the castle. Outside stood the fairy
with a beautiful carriage, and after all had
jumped in, they turned toward the King's
castle to take the Princess home.
While thev were drivine along the young
man happened to speak of his three brothers
and the tairv then told him that she had
thrown them into a deep pit. When Brave-and-True
heard that, he begged her to rescue
them and forgive their rudeness. The fairy
at last consented, and when their 'carriage
passed bv the pit, Lazybones, Insolence and
Good-for-Notbmg were pulled out of their
prison. They apologized to the fairy for
what they had done, and they continued on
their homeward road.
In the evening they arrived at a large inn
and the fairy said: "Now I must go home,
so vou better stay here until morning and
get some rest in this hotel. I am sure the
Princess is tired."
They all agreed to that and the fairy
vanished. Alter awhile, however, when
everybody was asleep the three bad brothers
got together and now Good-for-Nothing said:
"I tell you our journey has been in vain
unless we bring the Princess home. Now
let us steal Leonore and ride away to-night.
Then when our young brother awakes in the
morning be can see how he gets along.
When we get to the castle we tell the King
we rescued his daughter, and you, Lazibones,
being the oldest, shall mary her, if you will
promise us a good fortune."
The other two agreed and they went and
broke into the Princess' room. They car
ried her down stairs, put her in the carriage
the fairy had left behind and off they drove.
But after the horses had gone for about an
hour they suddenly stopped before a mag
nificent mansioryin the depth of the woods.
Beiore the tbrep brothers knew what was
the matter, the carriage door was opened
and to their utter astonishment there stood
the fairy before them.
"I knew you meant to cheat your brother
out of his well-deserved prize, and now I
am going to punish you for the rest of your
days!" Then she stretched out her hands
and sprinkled a peculiar powder into the
boys' faces. No sooner had this powder
touched them than all three were changed
"Now you have your reward," continued
the fairy, and she immediately put the
donkeys into harness and attached them to
the carriage. When this was done she
jumped into the carriage beside Leonore
and both returned to the inn where Brave-and-True
was still asleep. When he heard
what his brothers had tried to do and that
they had been changed into donkeys, he
"Well, I think they will be more useful
as donkeys than as men."
Then they all went home and the car
riage was drawn all the way by the three
donkeys, Lazibones, Insolence and Good-for-Nothing.
When they arrived at the
castle Brave-and-True married Leonore
and he became a very great man in the
country. But the three bad brothers re
mained his donkeys to the end of their days.

tlon of HU message.
Mr. White is famous among his friends for
his illegible handwriting. He is a very
short-sighted man, and dependent upon a
pair of pinch-nose eyeglasses. One day he
was called West suddenly, on business, and
forgot his glasses. He telegraphed to his
wife from the first station, "Send me my
glasses by express to Palmer House, Chi
cago." The telegraph operator got it, "Send
me my dollars by Curtis to Palmer House,
Mrs. White was greatly pnzzled when she
received this message, and a visit to her hus
band's office bronght her no explanation.
His partner knew nobody named Curtis,
and felt certain that Mr. White had his
check book with him.
In the meantime, Mr. White had found in
his pocket a duplicate pair of glasses, pro
vided for just such an emergency, and had
sent a second telegram, "Have found mv
other classes. Never mind about first pair."
The second operator had even more trouble
with this message. When it reached Mrs.
White it read, "I leave around my other
gloves. Never mind about first pair."
It took two letters to straighten out the
mystery of these messages, and Mr. White's
son Fred still preserves them us "prize
specimens of papa's handwriting."

Observers in many of the small cities
blessed with shade trees have noticed that
those trees near electric lights have been
blighted by something, and for the lack of
some more apparent cause, the trouble is as
cribed to the electric lights. The local ar
boriculturists say that the trees need dark
ness as much as men need sleep.
There seems to be some reason in suppos
ing that the nearness of the electric lights
is the cause of the drooping of the trees,
for similar trees, not exposed to any other
illumination than that of the'sun, hare not

THAT CAME FROM THE HEART.
Heaven Not Altogether as Portrayed in the
A STRONG AEGDMEKT AGAINST DANCING
rwnrrrsx ron rmt dispatch.j
A few days ago I was traveling on horse
back through the region of country near the
Arthlacooche river. Darkness overtook me
suddenly and I was obliged to spend the
night at a farmhouse. At the supper table
someone said that a "pine knot preacher"
was going to hold a meeting in the woods
about a mile off, and asked if I would like
to go. I said "yes" at once, as I wasenrious
to know why the man was called a "pine
knot" preacher, and no one could tell me.
I puzzled -over it a good deal, but could
come to no satisfactory conclusion. I found
out as soon as I reached the place.
A wild and picturesque scene greeted us
on our arrival. An opening had been made
In the hamack, the brush piled and burnt,
and the logs rolled into some semblance of
order, to serve as seats in front of a sort of
platform of logs which did duty as a pulpit.
The moon was nearly full and poured such
a flood of silvery light into the opening as
it can do nowhere else but in Florida. Like
a solid wall, the great primeval trees, draped
in their heavy hangings of Spanish moss,
shut us in to silence and meditation. Carts,
buggies and saddle animals were tied at
various points along the outskirts, while a
large and attentive congregation occupied
the log seats.
But the most striking feature in the whole
picture was the pulpit and the preacher.
The pulpit was made, as I have said, of logs
thrown together so as to form a sort of rough
platform. There was no rail, nor seat, nor
desk, but on each side and a little back
from the front, was a large iron brazier
filled with flaring pine knots, which threw
a red light over all ana emphasized the out
lines and details already made visible bv
My curiosity was satisfied. The man was
called a "pine knot" preacher because he
only preached at night and lighted his glori
ous temple and humble pulpit with the ma
terials which nature furnished on the spot.
A PIKE KNOT PBEACHEB.
The preacher was a tall, gaunt man, with
long black hair, glittering black eyes, rather
narrow face and a high, narrow forehead.
both deeply fuirowed with lines of care oi
sunermg. He was in his shirt sleeves, and
his whole appearance, as he stood in the
glare of his pine torches, harmonized per
fectly with his surroundings.
The service had begun when we arrived,
and after a hymn, which they were singing,
the preacher delivered the following dis
course. Of course, I give it from memory,
as there was not light enough to take notes;
but the outline is correct, and the dialect
absolutely exact, as anyone who has ever
talked with a Florida "Cracker," can see at
a glance. But it is almost impossible to in
dicate in print the very peculiar emphasis
which these people put on the penult orulti
mate of words of three or more syllables.
This, then, was what the preacher said:
"Feller sinners: I done gone an' tole de

GEEAT FUN WITH A SNAKE.
A Georgia Lawyer Amuses Himself While
Terrifying Other People.
Albany (Ga.) News.
One of our attorneys highly enjoys practi
cal jokes, and never loses an opportunity to
play a prank on some unsuspecting person.
While he was making preparations to at
tend Baker Superior Court Monday, he did
not fail to prepare lor a little fun on the
trip. He purchased a toy rubber snake
about 14 inches in length. No one could
distinguish the difference from a real rep
tile only by a close examination.
The lawyer put the snaky thing in his
pocket and started for Newton. When he
reached Camilla he got into a hack to ride
up town. The driver was paying all atten
tion to his high-stepping horses, while the
.attorney pulled out his "pet" and eased it
over on the driver's seat. All at once the
driver was startled by an exclamation of
fear from behid, and upon looking around
saw the lawyer shrinking back, pointing to
the front seat. The driver gave one startled
glance at the seat, and then he threw up his
hands and fell backwards out of the hack.
The lawyer gathered the lines and con
trolled the horses, while the driyer searched
lor the object of fear, but it had mysteri
The lawyer enjoyed himself hugely in
Newton with his "sell," but the grand act
was reserved lor Albany. Arriving at the
depot in this city, he took a seat in Temp
Brinson's hack for uptown. Suddenly the
driver discovered a monster on the seat'with
him. There was a terrible "ugh!" and the
driver went out over the wheel. He turned
the butt end of his.whip, knocked his snake
ship out of the seat upon the ground, and
then proceeded to kill it, but after striking
several severe blows, he saw how badly
mistaken he was.

BEAUTIFYING VALUE OP BATHS.
What to Do for Paleness and Pimples and
Loss of Hair.
SOME EEHEDIES FOE COEFDLENOE
rwBirrzx roa the dispatch.
A mass of mail from every quarter of the
country has accumulated upon my desk, and
I will now endeavor to answer the more
pressing queries asked on the subject of pre
serving and restoring beauty.
C. W. You sty you are water cure people, to
whom sltz baths, douches, eta, are everyday
words; but with all these your skin is greasy,
and a piece of butter eaten on your bread to
day will give tho oily look to-morrow, and, of
course, blackheads. Baths alono will not take
the place of diet, and both together sometimes
have hard work to undo the neglect 'of former
generations. The ne'ed of acids is clearly lndi-
cated In your case. A large lemon to a goblet
of water makes a drink of proper strength to
be taken three or four times a day, alternating
with new tart cider, grape juice and fruit juices
as you can get them. In ordinary diet, peoplo
do not study variety enough. It is little good
to force the same thing on the tired appetite ot
a sjstem ready for fresh material to work with.
Th mineral acids, sulphuric, hydrochloric or
nitric, a few drops in a goblet of water, jnst to
acidulate pleasantly, are also of value, and the
Saline aperients. Bochelle, Epsom and Carlsbad
salts, urovided coarse food is neod tn
coniplete their effect. You are quite right J
tuu useicssueas ui raDDing and scrUD
blnt" the face. Instead bathe It with weak
alcohol, or soft soap and hot water. Druggists
sellla fine soft soap for the purpose, or youmay
dissolve castile soap in- aleohol and use that.
For"laiy liver" take'taraxacnm and exercise;
alsojeat freely of tomatoes in any shape. The
toilit preparations you ask abont are harmless
andi desirable; bat you want the moth and
freckle lotion, not the cream. I find it very
nice for keeping the face smooth and free from
sunburn or irritation, as well as
FBEOKLES AND TAN.
Tie second make I know nothing about.
Masks have no purifying effect on the skin, bat
only protect it. Tie up a cut linger and the
skin under the linen becomes soft simply by be
ing kept from the air and dust, which irritate
it; draw the blood to irritated points, where it
sets np Inflammation, and pimples result, or in
sluzgish anaemic states the oily secretion sep
arates m undue quantity. I hope to And a still
more convenient toilet appliance than the
mask, which, however, is excellent for erasing
wrinkles and tan. Glycerine is worse than use
less In cases of oily skin.
Mona AThe hives certainly do not arise
from pure blood. Take salts or seidlitz pow
ders daily, using coarse food and bathe nightly,
changing all the clothes worn by day. To re
lieve the irritation, as often as it coues on
sponge with tepid water, with ona teaspoonfol
common carbolic acid to 'the quart. Acid
varies in strength, so if this smarts ou the skin
dilate still more, till it Is agreeable. Sponge
till thelrritation passes away.
Iojva Coquette. If you are pale and pim
ples come on your face yoi must improve your
habits, bathe oftener and put coarse bread
beauty bread and wbeaten grits on your dally
bilU Using these constantly, you need never
have a pimple. To banish those which are al
ready out, take compound licorice powder
three nights and a seidlitz ponder mornings.
Bathe or rather scrub yourself with hot water
and plenty of soap. Open the pimples with a
needle, and touch them with camphor spirit a
dozpn times a day. It is a good plan to wet an
old kerchief in camphor and keep it on the
facq whSrrlyIng down to rest. The camphor
should be weak, as domestic camphor usu.
AuAdmtreb Can hardly Improve her nose
if It has the tiptilted shape drawn in the letter,
a very wise idea, by the way. Nor does she
need to trouble about it for wide. pood.
humored pug noses really give attraction to a
face by the sagacity, humor and friendliness
they Impart. With open, shady eyes, decent
complexion and firm month, your nose will do
very well, and very charming women have had
nb better noses. Five years more will probably
work improvements naturally, in features and
size. The person jou ask about is hardly small,
$ leet 5 inches in height, 120 pounds in weight,
and gets round pretty briikly. Face variable,
sometimes very gay, very sad. quiet or imperi
ous, hair a sort of amber, so people say who
bave seen her.
AN AID TO BEAUTY.
M.E Coeoanut oil, or still better, cocoa
butter or almond oil rubbed on the face will
nourish the skin and leave the cheeks fuller.
Bat really to make the faco plumper, the phys
ical developers say, nothing assists more tban
to chew gum.or India rubber in which children
delight. Ibe exercise of the facial muscles in
this way half an hour daily will give fullness to
cheeks and throats. Chew with the mouth
shut, working tho jaws pretty strongly. It is
needless to say this exercise should be strictly
private. 2. There are several harmless hair
dyes. 3. No better specific for the growth of
the hair can be mentioned than brushing, SO
strokes at morning and at night, with oil of
lavender applied toward the close of the lata
brushing. 4. The same lotion cannot remove
decolorations of the skin, and prevent wrin
kles, bnt separate lotions effect these objects.
McD. The yellowish or sulphur colored
blotches on the face are a disorder called chlo
asma, not unusual in those who have had a
nervous shock. It differs from the"liver spots."
Try a lotion, one to five erains corrosive subli
mate to the ounce of alcohol, applied with an
old linen cloth, wetland left on the spots five
minutes at a time, three times daily. Begin
with one grain of sublimate id the lotion; In a
week add another, and so on till It slightly irri
tates the skin. Use the taraxacum a fortnight,
and then take the well-known tonic prepara
tion of iron, quinine and strychma,or use grape
jaice to restore tone to the nerves.
AMabttb. You are very foolish never to
have tried remedies for the loss of hair, as it
can always be arrested If taken in time. Strict
cleanliness of the scalp, first of all, is neces
sary, washing with castile soap and warm water
at least weekly, and drying by holding the head
in strong sunlight, or by the lire, so that the
neat reaaens tne SKin. ants, in your case, J
wnea 1110 lew sparse uairs ieic oome OUE when
dressed, is preferable to brushing mncb. At
night apply oil of lavender pretty freely, or
lime juice and glycerine, which is one-half pint
of good sweet oil and six fluid ounces of lime
water shaken together in a bottle till they are
a creamy dressing. Or try half a plpt of sweet
oil with half as much common ammonia water.
Apply a teaspoonf ul of either dressing at night,
first heating the scalp, steaming it is good.
Then wear a nightcap of thin flannel to keep
tho oil from evaporating. As the loss of hair
attends a poor nervous condition, every care
should be given to restore strength, especially
by bypophosphites or phosphates.
EESTOEINO GEAT HAIB.
V. A L. The best remedy for premature
gray bair is a change of habits and thorough
restoration of general health. At the same
time use the bair brush freely night and morn
ing, exposing the head to the sun daily an
hour or more. Try this for a year. If the
hair does not improve, then use vegetable
tinctures for coloring it. 2. Turkish baths
onc;ht to do a great deal toward removing
blackheaas. 3. The best diet for tbln persons
Is cracked wheat, juicy meats, starchy vegeta
bles, like potatoes, artichokes, rice and corn;
sweets, if they uo not turn acid after eating;
and especially rich salids, chocolace, "cocoa
and bread of unbolted flour. 4. The least In.
junous face powder is that of rice, very finely
ground and sifted.
M. L. M. I do not know anything of the
physician yon mention. As a role the feeling
Is against doctors who advertise beyond their
names and addresses. There is a training
school for professional nurses connected witu
Bellevue Hospital. "Are taraxacum and man
drake to be In equal proportions!" Good
heavens, nol The dose would be deadly. One
tablespoonf ul extract of mandrake to a pint of
fluid extract of taraxacum is plenty, illx in
AWestkkn GiBik Themetalllchalr brushes
are very good. If the hair Is thoroughly combed
and free from snarls before brushing. A still,
military brush ot unbleached bristles or an
English brush, with bristles nearly two inches
deep, are very good. 2. Ihe wild grape has
many varieties, and the sweeter ones are as
good as any common kind for making pure
blood. The port wine grape Is the best kind
for grape jaice. 3. A pale girl with light blue
eyes and rather light brown bair should not
wear dresses of pink, blue, red, green, violet,
orahe pretty colors, though ribbons and acces
sories may be of thoso hues. Shepherd's check
with black moire facings, collar and sash, rose
pink cravat, or plnkgauza chemisette, and pink
moire Inch ribbons at waist, varied with the
same accessories in black moire, with white
crape embroidered in black. Is one good toilet.

plexion and bring out the fairness of tho hair.
sr war ri?iS
urn pink facings wtte, very dull greea,wM

such a girl.
A CUKE JfOK COEPTJLEH&E.
G. B. A girl under 80 has no use for sefa
corpulence, as Southern people say.. E' u
little bread as possible, and that toatted or
baked crisp and brown. Use unbolted flour
and grits as the only cereals, and eat no pota
toes. Drink new cider, grape juice, str-oft
lemonade, or cream, of tartar water made by
pouring a pint ot boiling water on a table
spoonful of cream of tartar. With these drinks
to sip when you feel hungry, you will be able
to keep up strength with little food, and as
these have aperient action, they will reduce
embonpoint. New cider is better than vinegar
to reduce flesh with safety. Take a glass of it
every three hours. You will probably have to
persevere in strict nablts for years, to counter
act the disposition to fleshiness, Biding horse
back, or tricycle riding would be a very great
help in your hard task.
Katie a Your first letter was never re
ceived. It Is not at all ridiculous that you
should wish to remove such freckles as you de
scribe. Though difficult to banish the task is
not impossible. You begin right, though. you
need a teaspoonful fcree times daily of the
taraxacum in place of a timid half teaspoonf uT
once a day. You wonld bave to rival SaHy
Brown In making believe a good deal to Imag
ine the skin softer after aucb delicate dosing.
The error, however, is on the safe side. Use
cream, sugar or gravy with cracked wheat as
yon like. Irritating applications are very likely
to bring out hairs on the 1 ace. Your best lotion
is one to three grains of corrosive sublimate to
the ounce of water, as the skin can bear it with

TJNFEBMENTED OBAPE JUICE.
Mary Bex wants to know how to maka the
unfermented grape juice and make it keep. 1.
The manufacturei a in the country who have GO
acres and more in grapes for tho purpose direct
that the juice is to be pressed by a band cider
press, strained through linen crash or cheese
cloth, bottled, filling till the cork Is in the
juice, and kept in a snbcellar which is never
much above freezing. The cold storage keeps
the juice from one vintage to the next. Tho
best plan, in a small way, is to keep the grapes
in cool storage till settled cold weather, press
ing only as wanted through the fall. Then in
December press the most of the grapes, strain
ing out all pulp, and bottle for keeping. Scald
ing Is not necessary if the storage is fit and
cold. A bin in the icehouse would be a good
place. Or. bake the grapes in a stone jar, cov
ered, till the juice runs freely, and squeeze In a
linen towel. Bpttle, with a teaspoonful of
sweet oil on the top, drive the cork to touch
the oil, and keep cold and dark. The grapes
should be squeezed very dry, as the best part
for health is the acid coloring layer In the
skins, which contains phosphates. The juice
of stewed grapes, half water or full strength, is
very good for invalids. 2. Probably there is
too much mandrake In your taraxacum. One
tablespoonsul to the pint of the latter extract
is enough. Ot course yon can lessen the dose.
A seidlitz powder, three mornings in succes
sion, or a dose of anti-bilious pills at night, are
advisable when the taraxacum creates sick
ness. Shxbley Babe.
OSIGIN OF THE WOfiD QUIZ.
A Term That Was Invented in Pursuance ef
The way in which words come into daily
use Is sometimes very curious, and none
perhaps more so than the general adoption
ot the word "quiz," which originated in a
joke. It was one Saturday evening, in the
city of Dublin, Ireland, that a gay company
was assembled together, consisting largely
of some of the famous wits and men of fash
ion of the day. Amongthem was Bichard
Daly, then the manager of. the Irish Thea
ter, and, in a fit of bravado, he
wagered a large sum that, byr a
certain hour the next day, he
would have spoken all through
out the city a word having no meaning and
being drawn from no known language.
Laughingly the bet -was accepted and the
stakes deposited. Accordingly, Daly has
tened to the theater and dispatched his
servants and supernumeraries in all direc
tions, with instructions to chalk the word
"quiz" on every door and shop-window in
town. Sunday morning dawned, and the
stores being closed, the good people of
Dublin, on their way to and from church,
were astonished enough to see this odd sign
confronting tbem on all sides.
It caused mjb. snrprise, and "qnfz" was
in everybody's mouth, thus winning his
wager for Richard Daly, while ever since,
when one attempts to pass off an improbable
story, he is apt to be, met with the expres
sion, "Oh, you are quizzing me!" "Quiz"
has also found its way into the dictionary
as a legitimate word, its meaning being
given as "to puzzle; to hoax," "to look
mockingly at," and "to ridicule or make
sport of." It is also defined in three ways
as a noun, one definition given being "a
riddle or obscure question, an enigma;" a
second, "One who quizzes others;" the
third, "An odd fellow." Quizzer, quiz
zical and quizzing-glass are all outgrowths
of the word "quiz."
A Stationer Explains Why They Are so
"Why are these envelopes blue on tbe in
side?" was the query put to a stationer the
"For a very fimplereason," was the reply.
"One of the great results to be attained in
making envelopesis to prevent transparency.
Many white papers are so transparent that
by careful scrutiny the contents of such
envelopes may be determined. For in
stance, let us put a sheet of paper with
writing on it into this envelope. Let
us also insert a bank check. We will now
seal it and hold it to tbe light thus. There
you can not only see tbe bank check, but
you can also read many of the words on the
sheet of paper. This can be prevented
either'by getting a very thick and high
priced envelope which is not transparent,
nor scarcely translucent, or by taking a
cheaper grade of paper which is blue on one
side. Now we sell quite a number of blue
envelopes, that is envelopes which are blue
on the outside; but most people do not like
them for their color. So, to get over the
difficulty and still not make a high-priced
article, we use paper which is blue on one
side and white on the other.
Hly mother's Porapkin Pies.
When the beautifnl autumn time has come
With its wealth of golden days
When river and hill and meadow-land
Are veiled in a purple haze.
Sown the backward track of the fleeting years
Unbidden my memory flies
To the autumn time in my childhood's home.
And to mother's pumpkin pies.
The yellow globes from the field were brought
Amid rapture of childish glee,
For well I knew the promise they held
Of delighted things to be.
And mute ana motionless I gazed
On tbe scene with wondering eyes.
While my mother wrougnt the mystery
Of those famous pumpkin pies.
Meaty and juicy and sweet were they,
Asd conjured with infinite care, v
With a thin, brittle crust of delicate brown.
And a flavor beyond compare;
And though I should live to three-score and ten
Yet oft will tbe memory rise
Of those happy times in my boyhood days.
And my mother's pumpkin pies.
Tbe Man and Bis Watch,
Did you ever ask a man the .time jnst
after he had inspected his watch and put it
in his pocket? If so, did you ever receive
an answer before the man pulled his watch
out and took another look at it? Jnst why

explain, but if yon will ask your friend to
tell you the time the next time you observe

you will find that he will take another look
at the dial before giving an answer.

A Growing Interest in Church Work.
It Is a happy fact that there is a wide-spread
and growing interest in practical church work.
At last it really begins to dawn on the sancti
fied intelligence of Christian people that It Is
both wickedness and folly to lock up large
sums of money in costly edifices which are
opened and used only once or twice a week!
and then but for an hour or two. It begins to
be felt that churches existnot alone for wor
ship: that they should form' so many nuclei of
active and aggresive efforts. v
The idea formerly prevailed, and does still
too generally, that it is the purpose of local re
ligious organizations to convert and instruct
believers, and then to leave them in their Indi
vidual capacity to find or make ways and means
of application to daily life. Meantime, the or
ganization, as such, sits idle six days out of
seven. Tbe-mlghty power of organization, the
open secret of such amazing results In other
departments, was and largely is thus substan
tially disused and wasted.
The truth is that every Christian is that asd
something more. What more? Why, he Is
part and parcel of an organized body. As a
soldier is a man, but also a member of a regi
ment; as apartner is an Individual, bat also a
member of a business house; so a Christian is
In the army and in the firm. What would be
thouehtof a soldier who should habttnallv
.break rank and play guerrilla? or of a partner
wnosnouiu constantly ignore Bis eoueaeues
and transact business on his own hoekf Where
would be the victories, and where the commer
cial success on that planT Yet tins Is what
church members do. .
XTo; the church as a whole ought to adjast i(
self to practical uses. Worship Is sublime. In
struction is needful. But to these why not sub
join such dally helpfulness as might both evan
gelize and civilize the community? Let Chris
tians 00 what they cn as ifldiridaata: sad at
the same time think and feel and act together-
iur we commoa weal.
'Make each church a center of tremendous
energies. Superadd-to the spiritual propa
ganda special methods. Take hold of this out
lying need with the powerful nana ot the or
ganization. Is it said that this would secular
ize the church? On the contrary, would it sot
spiritualize ine secuiarr is it not a "jnrisuan
duty to feed the hungry, and clothe the naked,
and enlighten the ignorant, and help tbe needy
and lift tne lowly? And if a Christian duty,
why not a church duty? Why set men to do
ing in a sporadic way what a great body might
do infinitely better.
We say to our churches, "Awake, awake,
thou that sleepest" Make every day Sunday.
Open your doors, your hearts, your bands
wide. Vindicate your right to be. Force the
city to recognize your existence by your many
sided helpfulness and to t bant God for It.
One-thing Is certain; If the churehes do Hot
Christianize the community, the cemamaiSj
will heathenize the churches.

The Contrast of Russian Lire.
In an interesting article in Harper1 1 Maga
zine, for September, Theodore Child writes of
some of the strange contrasts of Russian life:
From the Tsar down to tbe humblest mnjlk,
the Russians are more or less barbarians, from
the 'point of view of the refined West, but cer
tainly most amiable barbarians, so far as
foreigners are concerned. Their hospitaiitr
knows no limits; no trouble is ton great when it
is a question of obliglnga foreign visitor: but
charming as they are. you are constantly beine
reminded of the nildness of their underlyinir
natnre by the strange contrasts of delicacy and
brutality, of civilization and 'barbarism, which
their daily life offers. To hear the Russians
talk about the unwritten cotemporarv history
ot their social and national life Is like listening
to tbe stories of the Arabian Niotits. The trne
narrative of SkobelofTs career and death and
the true narrative of the circumstances of
the assassination of the late Tsar, are far more,
thrilling and extraordinary than print has ever
