IMPORTANCE OF TRIFLES.
Small Things That Have Led to Mo
From the Ilostou Journal.
No one underestimates tho import
ance of trifles In these days of atentlon
to detulls; still, it's dlrllciilt to appre
ciate the momentous results that cer
tain pnmll things may bring forth.
There's n: petite woman known to tho
writer, for instance, who is now a most
successful teacher of languages. Ton
years ago she was so slender and small
that, while her qualifications were ad
mitted to lie all that could be desired
by the persons to whom she applied for
a position, one and all decided that she
was much too young to rule the schol
ars who would bo under her control.
Finally, one day, thu girl started out
In desperation to make a visit to the
principal of one of the largest schools
In the city, and she felt so very dis
heartened that she put on a trailing
black gown that had been dlsenrded as
too mature for one of her years, and a
prim little bonnet hat well nigh cov
ered her bronze hnir, and so attired In
consonance with her feelings, made a
Until appeal for work. This was a sur
Later tho head of tln readonly told
her that he had been misled Into be
lieving her much older than shu was
by her clothes, and that when he saw
her next, looking younger than some of
her scholars,, his heart sank within him
and he would have willingly canceled
tho bargain then and there If ho could.
Another frank woman admits that
it Is doubtful If she would ever have
had a chance of accepting the man who
afterward became hor husband if It
hadn't been for a new mode of halr
dresslng, It was a very fascinating nietlrtid,
this one, with many an enchanting
curl ami-twist, and gazing on them, the
youth's heart became entangled Iu tho
meshes nnd he Impulsively asked the
maid, whose crown of glory formed
meh a prety frame for her bewitching
face, to many him.
He, too, had an admission to make,
and It Is that next morning his heart
sank within him when ho tlmindit of
thu step he'd taken. lie stuck to it
though, 'of course, and now ho declares
he's the happiest of married men.
A long, 3oft-frlsted glove made an
othpr man a benedict, lie found It lu
bis coat pocket, where a girl friend bad
stuck It ono morning, and It looked so
feminine and dulnty and homelike in
his bachelor apartments that ho
straightway went out nud made an
ngrcement with Its owner by which ho
was to buy gloves and various other
expensive articles for her the rest of
her natural life.

THE INCREASE IN SUICIDES.

World The Causes.
i'rom Ihe Medical Itccord.
The decay of religious sentiment--which
is in bo obsun od In all thoso
countries which uro in the fnremo.-t
rank us regards knowledge, and espec
ially the growth of scleutiilo ilnowlrtdircs
has perhaps conduced mere to tho
spread of suicide than uny otli'.-i sin
gle cause. That Ihe dt cadence of or
thodox belief is an Important factor
In Iho Increase of eelf-murder Is dem
onstrated in great cities like Purl-,
Uerlln .mil Vienna, wlure agnosticism
is rampant, and the greatest number
of suicides occur.
Pr. Ireland traces the greater por
tion of the causes of suicide to sev re
Htialn upon tho nervous system which
mny bo the outcome of a multiplicity
ot causes. Among these causes may
be mentioned tin Increnrod strain' of
modern lifo upon the nervous system.
