The first vote in the senate will

the senate developed unexpected Re

A Japanese Custom.
On the anniversary of a Japanese
boy's birthday hla parents present him
with a hugo paper fish, rondo or a gay
ly painted tag. with a hoop of proper
dimensions forming the mouth. A
string la tied to the hoop, and tho fish
Is hoisted to a pole on the roof of
tho house. Then the wind rushing
through causes tho fish to Bwell out to
tho proper size and suapo and gives it
tho nppearanco of swimming in the
air. A Japanese boy carefully pre
serves every fish thus given to him
One can tell by the number of them
that swim from tho same pole how
many birthdays tho little fellow has
heaped upon him by his fellow men
How many a revolution has died a
horning. How many have had ttioi'
hopes and expectations raised up to
heaven, only to be cast down to h 11.
Tho trees of blessing are covered with
beautiful blossoms, fragrance fills the
air, and we say, "We are going to
have a bountiful crop of luscious
fruit," and then there comes, in tie
most unexpected moment a, killing
frost, and every bud is blighted aui
the whole harvest Is lost. That is the
reason why some men who start out
to revolutionize the world, and bring
in a reign of righteousness, grow heart
sick at tho fickleness of the crowd,
get disgusted with tho shilly-shally,
backing and filling of those for whom
they labor, and finally throw up ti o
whole mntter in disgust.
Tho fact Is In every attempt to im
prove the world Old Adam must al
ways be reckoned with. Man may
have been created upright, but he is
certainly very much twisted now. Ho
chooses darkness rather than light,
he compromises, wriggles, evndes, don
hies and turns Instead of goinj
straight forward. He is carried about
by every wind of doctrine. Dema
gogues and fanatics stampede him;
The same crowd that cries, Hosanna,
to-day, shrieks, crucify Him! Crucify
Him! to-morrow. Christ did His ut
most to win tho people, and gather
around Him n multltudo whom He
could depend upon, but Ho failed,
and was compelled at last to utter tho
almost despairing cry, "Wlion the Son
of Man comoth will He find faith on
In this lesson the truth Is empha
sized that those who would put their
hand to tho plough must not even look
back; that men must expect to en
dure hardness as good soldiers; that
disappointment is certain to come to
those who depend upon tho nrm of
flesh. It is no holiday task to win this
world for righteousness. Those who
go about it must reckon upon bearing
their cross after Him.
Crises In History.
Prescott, in hla conquest of Peru
says that Plznrro at one time came to
tho placo in Ills advance whon his fol
lowers shrank back and were about to
desert him. "Drawing his sword, he
traced a line with it from east to
west. Then turning toward the faomn
he said, 'Friends and comrades, on
that side are toll, hunger, nakedness,
the drenching storm, desertion rnd
death; on this side easo and pleasure.
There lies Peru with nil its riches;
here Pannma and its poverty. Choose,
each man, aa becomea a brave Cas-
tlllan. For my part I go to the
South." So saying ho stepped across
tho line. His soldiers hesitated but a
moment, and then, ouo aftor another,
they followed their great leader. Thai
was the crisis of Plzarro'a fate. As
Prescott moralizes, "There are mo
menta In the lives of men which, as
they are seized or neglected, decide
their futuro destiny."

How to Handle Fine Carriages.
The following Instructions are given
by an experienced carriage builder In
reference to the care of fine carriages:
Freshly varnished carriages should be
washed frequently nnd exposed to the

hard. Mud allowed to dry upon fresh
varnish will lenve spots, nnd exposure
to ammonia will destroy fresh varnish.

ing down of the water tho dirt will be
softened and run oft harmlessly. Care
should be taken to wipe the rurface
dry with soft chamois leather. Never
uso the same sponge ana ciinuiois u r
panels which arc used for running
gear. Never use soap on varnished
surfaces, and only take off tne grease
nnd dirt around the hubs and axles.
Swearing to Validity of an Excuse.
Kissing the book seems to be on the
point of being consigned to woll de
oerved oblivion, and England might
easily take pattern by tho form of
oath that obtains In the Channel isl

In common with other constituent ele

excuse that another member is ab

been handed down from a Norman an
