International Bible Lesson for Miy 29,
10 (Matt. 14:13-21; 15:29-39).
Dr. Quiet nnd Dr. Diet are two very
good physlclnns. Rest nnd Rc'resli
ment are about the extent of their
prescriptions, but multitudes can at
test the efficacy of the treatment. The
world baa been a long time learn ns

The Simple Life.
This has been the practice of some
of the world's greatest men throus'.i

Bad Tempered People.
Some of the worst-tempered pecp't
of the world are members of :v.
church, in good . d regular stanrt'iig
and they are so from the fact tha
they have no rest. They toll all ll-e
week at some profitable employrmtit
and they give all their spare time tc
superintending Sunday school, lis' en
lng to sermons, and every night hold
lng meetings, wait on ministers, serve
on committees, take all the critieis:n?
and hypercritlclsm that come ui
earnest people, rush about everythin
they undertake, have all the irons ;n
the lire, and develop their hearts ai
the expense of all their other f. n
tlons. All such people should un' e
stand that It is as much their duty tc
take care of their health as to do to th
sacrament. It Is as much a sin tc
commit suicide with the sword of the
spirit as with a pistol. Our earthly
life Is a treasure to bo guarded. It
is an outrage to when we ought tr
live. To fire up the boilers so that

judgment when a moderate rate o.'
speed would have taken us to a pea- e
ful dock In good repair. The disposi
tion of the old-time Mississippi pilots
to pass everything on the river, blew
up many a steamer and cost many a
life. That man Is a sinner agalns'
God and humanity who tries to d'i
the work of thirty years In five. Man;
a train rushing across the country at
record-breaking speed comes to a hah
through a hot axle. And the same
thing Is true of men. Tho rush of
business produces a hot box.
Appropriate Food.
But Dr. Quiet Is In partnership with
Dr. Diet and they who patronize the
one should employ the other alFo
Christ fed the 5,000 In the wilderness,
not with indigestible and Inappropri
ate food, hut with the good, old-fa.1--loncd,
homely, nutritious diet of bread
and fish. It would have been as ea'-y
for him to have provided a banquet
such as epicures partake of, but such
fare would have been entirely unlltted
for women and children who pot.
posed a great part of that crowd. The
food He provided was appropriate fot
them. The man who takes care of
his health is careful of his diet. H?
need not necessarily make himself a
general nuisance because of his finicky
appetite, but he will not usually par
take of the wholo bill of fare, from
soup to dessert. It is little short of
blasphemy to ask God to take rare of
you while you sleep if you eat chlr-ken-salad
and welsh rarebit at olevdn
o'clock at night and then go to sleep
stuffed to repletion with every win
dow shut tight. If you do not gee
visions and dream dreams that a-e not
of heavenly origin under such circum
stances, it will not bo through tj
failure on your part to invite "the
spirit of the vasty deep" to dUpo.t
around your pillow.
One reason why the apostles we-e
such spiritual giants was bemuse
those early ministers were not Invited
out to lato suppers, with yellow lp;j
ged chicken and fried cakes. They
kept good hours, and lived on substr n
tlal diet, that furnished nitrates for
tho muscles, and phosphates for the
brain, and carbonates for the whole
frame. They had good diet. Fish
was cheap along Galileo, and this, with
unbolted bread gave them plenty of
phosphorus for brain food, . Doubt
less God can do a good deal for the
world with a sick man. Some sick
men are worth a dozen well ones. But,
other things being equal that man
who eats to live, instead of living to
eat, will live longer and live better
than the man whoso stomach Is al
ways out of order through foolhardy
treatment Christ fed the hunary
multitude with food that was adapted
to all ages, nutritious, palatable, appropriate.

A Deed of Daring.
Traveler in tho uncivilized region
of South America have to face many
perils from Intense heat, polsonotu
reptiles and savngo men. M. Thenar,
who explored the Pllcomayo delta for
tho Argentine government, describes
nn experience which prompted him to
eternal vlgllnnco In regard to snakes.
Ho was lylug in his hnmmock. Tho scr
gennt of his gunrd wns nslecp under
a tree closo by. Suddenly ho noticed
an ltnmenso serpent colled around tho
sergeant's leg and extending Its head
toward his bare chest. What should
ho do? To awake tho man meant cer
tain death to him, but how could the
snnko bo killed or driven away with
out rousing tho sleeping soldier? Then
ho recalled n method of capturing tho
cobra of Indln. He prepared a slip
knot, and by stealthy, almost Imper
ceptible movements ho nttracted tho
serpent's attention. It turned Its head.
Then M. Thouar leaned from tho ham
mock and tickled tho snnko gently on
tho throat. It rnlsed Its head, and ns
It did so the noose was drawn tight
around its neck. Just then the ser
geant awoke and almost fainted with
fright. But the danger was past. The
slipknot had saved him, and tho stroke
of a saber cut off tho serpent's head.
Moving Pictures at Home.
If some ono told you ho could show
you the complete shadow of a ninu's
face on a piece of ordinary string you
would find it hard to believe. Yet this
is true. Take a piece of string about
two feet long nnd tlo a bullet or other
small weight to one end. Then hold
tho other end llrmly In your hand and
whirl the weighted string around in
tho air as fnst as possible. Next have
somo ono stnud between the whlrllug
string and a bright light, nud you will
see his shadow plainly appear on the
Tho explanation is somewhat like
that of tho moving pictures. Tho
movement of tho string is so rapid
that the eye does not sco It, but sees
only a blur. This is because of what
is called "persistence" of vision. That
Is, when an image is formed in the
eye it stays there for a short time,
about an eighth of n second, and by
that time another image has been
formed, so that tho picture appears
continuous. Boston Herald.
A Japanese Card Game.
A game popular with both grown
people and children in Japan is played
as follows: One hundred well known
proverbs are selected, each divided Into
two parts, each part printed on a sep
arate card. The host has tho hundred
first halves, which he reads aloud one
by one. The hundred second halves
are dealt to the other players, who
place their hands upward upon the
tatami, or thick mat of rich straw, on
which they sit. As the first half of
any proverb Is read tho holder of the
second half throws It out or If ho
sees It unnoticed among his neighbor's
seizes it and gives him one of his own.
Tho player who Is first "out" wins. It
Is a very simple game, but It affords
a great deal of amusement to tho play
ers, for the quick sighted and keen
witted are constantly seizing the
cards of their duller and slower neigh
bors. This leads to much laughter and
good natured teasing.
The Cat and the Cheese.
There once was a little girl that tend
ed sheep on tho hillside. She had a
largu flock, and the ewes gavu so much
milk that she made a cheese ono day.
Sho mado tho choose and put on the
table, when what should she see but
her cat, James, who was looking nt the
cheese with a mischievous expression.
"Jumes," said tho little girl, who
knew just what tho cat was thinking
about. "If you put your paw lu that
cheese I'll give you a taste of the
Now, James wanted that cheese
more than he wanted anything else in
the world, but ho would not have dis
obeyed his mistress for anything, nnd
so when the little girl had turned her
back for n moment he did not put his
paw Into the cheese, ns any other cnt
would have done. Instend he put hid
nose Into It.

How to Treat Linoleum.
The way to prolong linoleum's period
of usefulness is to keep it clean. Dirt
ground into tho Unlshed surface by
tho tread of feet is the floor covering's
grentest enemy. Linoleum needs uo
soap, ammonia or strong cleaning
agents. A simple wiping with n cloth
just moist with warm water Is all that
Is needed. Once or twice a year give
the linoleum a wiping of good furni
ture polish to renew Its smooth sur
face. JANE All Ail.

How to Know Cooking Measures.
Young housekeepers aro often at a
loss when n recle calls for a cup of
unythlug to tell what kind of cup to
use or how much a cup meustrree. The
accepted measure is n stone kitchen
cup nnd means that cup filled to the
brim. It is equal to one-half pint. A
cup of solid butter, milk, chopped meat
or granulated sugar Is equal to about
half n pound. A cup of sifted flour Is
equal to one-quarter of a pound.
How to BrloJiten Your Piano.
Tako a basin of lukowarm water,
Wot a pleco of soft cheesecloth In It;
then pour a few drops of kerosene oil
on tho cloth and rub lightly over your
piano. Keep repeating until you have
been all over tho surface; then tako a
dry pleco of cheesecloth and polish un
til It Is glossy. Your piano will look
like new and that dull, smoky look
will all disappear.

Again In the cyclo of our sacred
days, wo como to tho Day of Memo
ries. And what memories they aro!
To him of tho Xorth, who fought vic-
! tor'.ouslv for hla countrv. enmn mem-
orlos not untlnged with Borrow, and
to him of tho Southland, who no less
nobly fought for cause, sad retro3poo
tlon comes not wholly without Joy.
And then on this, our great Com
memoration Day, tho women who, In
the field, eased tho sufferings of the
wounded and pointed the Way of Llfo
Eternal to the dying these angels of
the battlefield thrill anew as they re
call deeds of valor and sacrifice Bet
down only In memory's book on earth,
and tho Recording Angel's above.
And to another portion of America's
womanhood who, even now. In wak
ing fancy, listen for footsteps that nev- t
er again sounded on the homeward
way, thore comes an agony of recol-
lection sweetened by the thought that
to meet the need of the hour each '
sent forth a patriot.
Xo man, no woman, no child, In i
whose veins Hows the blood of these '
heroes, would withhold a flowery I
tribute from our soldiers graves. And J
the silent cities of the dead have, per-
haps, their best use as reminders that
men so loved their lives for them. !
Yet the day should not be devoted but i
to thoso who have crossed over the ' .
river that Stonownll Jackson saw In
his dying vision, and aro resting under
the shade of the trees In tho beautiful
gardens of God. Remember the heroes ,
who have not yet gono to the land of
tho warless life. There are among us
to-day few men of even early middle
ago who served In the Civil War, and
ours Is a generation which puts too
high n premium of youth and energy,
to the discredit of age and experience.
To us, the veterans In blue or gray are
apt to be but old men, too llttlo do we
appreciate tho spirit of patriotism
which spurred them through a conflict
that put to Its highest test tho man
hood of the land and left It scarred in
body, torn In soul, but wholly free.
Tho Day of Memories is a time for
us to pause and ponder the quality of
our patriotism, and to put It In tho
balance against that which bouyed the
spirit of these heroes who, whether
starving and writhing with the fire of
undressed wounds In prison camps, or
holding tho field till bloody rivulets
besmirched the sod, put principle first
What manner of men are we? How
arc we answering the call for the ex
ercise of patriotism through tho office
of good citizenship. Lincoln and Lee
and Grant how would tho love wo
bear our country compare with theirs?
Would they have been as callous as
are wo to-day to a want so dire? Per
haps tho prayer that we most need to
pray is, "Lord, keep us vulnerable."
Tho nation which should
act on tho theory that war
can be made so dangerous
that men will not engage
In it or that peace can be
arbitrarily brought in by
force, might well expect to
share the experience of a
doughty Confederate colon
el who, after tho civil war.
returned with his war-worn
and defeated veterans to
his native vlllnge and was
twitted on the fact that
four years earlier he had
boasted that he and his
men could lick the Yankees
with popguns. "So we
could," answered the colon
ol stoutly, "but the Yankees
wouldn't light that way.'
Common to All Americans.
In many parts of tho south Memo
rial day is now jointly celebrated by
survivors of the blue and tho gray,
and the custom la growing. Aa the
country comes more and more to
cherish as a common Inheritance tho
valor, fortltudo and self-sacrifice of
that conflict, It will become universal.
