OUR LITTLE ONES.

They hare gone such a little way to Met
" The years which are required to' break
Their steps to evenness and make

They are such little handa;
Be kind. Things are so new, and life but
atep beyond the doorway. All around
New day has f und
Such tempting things to shine upon, and
The hands are

They are such new, young Urea;
Barely their newness shrives .
Them itSil of many sins. They aee so
That being immortal they would touch.
That if they reach
We most not chide, but teach.
They are such fond, clear eyea
That widen to surprise
At every turn; they are so often held
To suns or showers showers noon la

Love asks, for such, much grace.
They are sceh fair, frail gifta; . .
Uncertain as the rifts
Of light that Ue along the sky
They may not be here by-and-by
Give them not lore, but more above
And harder patience with the lore.
LIFE FOE LIFE.
AN afternoon of mid -September,
bright aa a dream, warm as a
reality, glowed over the north
Irish coast. Young Constantine was
watching a game between three wild
and beautiful beings. The three were
14-year-old Ruby Merrltt, her new pony,
and the Atlantic Mlas Merrltt's Lon
don groom, on a powerful bay mare,
from the edge of the wet aand surveyed
the horizon line with a bored and rigid
The scene changed. Ruby and the
pony made a madcap dash far forward,

Aided by two fishermen, whom the

spot in time to see Constantine stagger
sp the sands with his burden, the
young man conveyed the girl to Sea
He lingered long enough to learn that
the doctor, who was staying In the
house, had said Mis Ruby would do;
then he lounged bom.
Early In the afternoon of the follow
ing day the Sea view boos party, la
dle and men, were grouped on the
mall leveled bit of green In front of
the bouse, waiting for the carriages to
come round. A man's figure was seen
approaching along the brow of the

husband, 'if s the young fisherman who
rescued Ruby. He baa put on hla Sun

Mr. Merrltt, aa tha young man came

Constantine lifted his bat to the la- j

He handed Constantine a SB gold
The young man looked at It curiously.
Then his eye darted over the pursy
figure and pasty face of Mr. Merrltt.
"I wonder now," said Constantine,
"what your forefathers were doing
while mine were feasting kings and j
marrying kings' daughters In this 1st- .
Mr. Merrltt started back and almost !
Constantino glanced toward two
fisher lads who were standing a good
way off with a big crab In a basket.
The gold coin was spun in the air and
waa caught by Andy Neil. !
"There, boys!" said Constantine.

He smiled again, saluted the ladles,
turned, and, with a slow, sauntering :

"Who la heT' exclaimed Mr. Merrltt. !
A little man, the parson of the near- j

Ruby had witnessed the whole scene j
heard every word.
Four days later came Sunday. Con

fire, which the creeping chill In the air
made necessary, when there came a
knock. The old woman who looked
after the house for him was out. Con- .

"That clergyman, Mr. Saunders, waa

but he'd rather starve and mope his

Twelve years passed. Malcolm Con
stantine, junior partner In the great
Pittsburg Iron works, came over t
take a hard-earned holiday, bay land
In Antrim, and see London.
A dowager countess, who had crossed
In the same boat with him, undertook
to make his stay In town agreeable to
the rich bachelor of 30. She had seven
portionless daughters, only one of
whom was married.
On a fine May afternoon Constantine
found himself seated between two of
these young ladles and their mother at
a little tea table In a Bond street pastry
cook's. They bad been seeing plcturea
Constantine felt restless. Something
In the coloring of an obscure portrait hi
bad seen had brought strongly to hi
mind the handsome, spirited, red-cheeked,
warm-hearted school girl, Ruby
He half feared to see Ruby the
woman; she might spoil his treasured
Image of Ruby the girl.
The voice of the countess, speaking
sharply, startled him out of hia reverie.
"Really," she was saying, "one
doesn't expect such awkwardness In a
place like this."
Constantine looked round. One of
the waitresses passing with a full tea
pot bad been run against by another.
Some drops were spurted on the silk
skirt of the countess.
The young woman bad stood still to
make her apology. Constantine sprang
np. "Ruby, Ruby!" he exclaimed, in a
voice which made every creature pres
ent turn round and stare.
It was a little awkward for all par
ties at the moment, and the ever-practical
Ruby Informed him . afterward
that he really should have waited to
speak to her till she was off duty.
"My story's quite simple," she said,
as he walked by her side. "A few years
ago poor uncle took to speculating
largely. He lost everything. My little
fortune went. too. I did not think I
was fit to be a governess. And I did
not feel inclined to live on friends. I
was very lucky to get my present situa

Ta 8 peak Well Breathe Well.
It is as Important to speak distinctly
and forcefully as It Is to walk erect or
to keep one's garments in good order.
Many persona who would resent being
accused of slovenliness or careless de
portment pay no attention to their
voices. Yet this form of negligence is
as disagreeable as the others in many
respects. Proper speaking depends
upon deep breathing. Breathe deeply
and have plenty of air in your lungs
when you speak. Enunciate distinctly
and do not hurry in your speaking, and
unsr fium the breath out while talk
ing. By an unconscious process the
lungs will supply enough air to give the
desired kind and volume of sound.
When you breathe and make a sound
at tbe same time a harsh tone will be
the result, giving you a gruff voice. A
little practice and experimental talking
after taking a deep breath will con
vince yon that musical, pleasing voice
tones may be easily produced, and they
are worth while.

WITH a better understanding of the transient nature of the many physicaj Ills which vanish before proper
efforts gentle efforts pleasant efforts rightly directed. There Is comfort In the knowledge that so many
forms of Illness are not due to any actual disease, but simply to a constipated condition of the system, which
the pleasant family laxative. Syrup of Figs, promptly removes. That Is why It is the only remedy with millions
f families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due bi
the fact that it la the only remedy which promise Internal oleanllness without debilitating the organs on whlck
It acta. It is. therefore, all-Important, In order to get its beneficial effects, to note when you purchase that yon
have the gennine article, which Is manufactured by the California Fl Syrup Co. only.
THE HIGHEST OBJECT
Of the art of advertising Is to oorrectly Inform the public of the merits of any article, and truthful statements
always prove most effective in time. The valuable reputation acquired by
the California FUr Syrup Co. by reason of the excellence of the pleasant
laxative remedy. Syrup of Figs, which it manufactures, confirms the state
ment, which the company freely makes, that the best of remedies only
should be used when needed by the human system. The more one takes
of salts and pills the more constipated the system becomes, while on the
other hand one enjoys both the method and the results when Syrup of
FiRs is taken; it is pleasant and refreshing to the taste, and acts gently
yet promptly on the kidneys, liver and bowels, cleanses the system effec
tually, dispels colds, headaches and fevers and overcomes habitual consti
pation permanently; also biliousness and the many Ills resulting therefrom.
The great trouble with all other purgatives and aperients Is not that they
fall to act when a single dose Is taken, but that they act too violently and
invariably tend to produce a habit of body requiring constantly augmented
doses. Children enjoy the pleasant taste and gentle action of Syrup of
Figs, the ladlea find it delightful and beneficial whenever a laxative remedy
is needed, and business men pronounce it invaluable, as It may be taken
without interfering with business and does not gripe nor rauseate.
THE EXCELLENCE OF SYRUP OF FIGS
Is due not only to the originality and simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only, and therefore we wish to Im
press on all the importance of purchasing the true an1 original remedy.
