It is worth evory man's while to study
the Important art of living happily.
Even the poorest man by this means
extract an increased amount of Joy and
Messing from life. The world need not
be a "vale of tears," unless we ourselves
will it to be bo. We have the command,
to a groat extent, over our own lot. At
all event our mind is our own poses
Ion; we can cherish happy thoughts
there; we can regulate and control our
tempers and dispositions to a considera
ble extent. We can educate ourselves
and bring out the better part of our
nature which in most men is allowed
to sleep a deep sleep we can read good
books, cherish pure thoughts, and lead
lives of peace, temperance, and virtue,
so as to secure the respect of good men,
and transmit the blessing of a faithful
example to our successors.
True courtesy strikes its roots far
below the surface, deep in the heart,
and blossoms out in all the little acts
of life. He whose pulse beats in time
with the great pulse of humanity, who
feels that "every human heart Is
human," bears about within him the
very elemental soil from which true
oourtesy spontaneously springs. Among
the manifestations of its presence are
perfectly simplicity of mannor, entire
absence of all acting for effect, and
unconsciousness of self. We see these
in persons who have traveled extensively
In our owu and other countries, and who
have thus been thrown into sympathetic
relations with people of various nation
alities and civilizations that their
oltizenship is consciously cosmopolitan.
We see it in philanthropists who may
all their lives have lived in the narrow
precincts of a single township, yet
whose benevolent activities have
brought them in dlroct personal contact
, with the poor, the Ignorant, the unfort
unate, the erring, no less than with the
happy, the wealthy, the prosperous, the
intelligent. There is no need of cir
cumnavigating the earth to acquire the
largeness of heart whence true courtesy
springs, since nearly every neighbor
hood furnishes representatives of all
conditions of the race. Those who
breathe the high atmosphere of univer
sal sympathy, untainted by the narrow
prejudices that torment and gangrene
and meager souls.ean afford a kind word
or glance to all they meet, giving the
faithful laborer due recognition on
account of the manhood that is in him
and the good he rendors society, lighten

People who are the principals in any
act constituting a legitimate news item
exhibit very narrow Judgment in taking
offense at it. The mission of a news
paper is to give the news. It must
either do that or throw up the sponge
and say It is afraid to, lest it offond
somebody. Then it is worthy only of
contempt. Legitimate news according
to Henry Watorson, is, "anything that
the good Lord permits to happen."
News is moat and drink to a newspaper.
It is as much its business to give the
news as for a doctor to attend to his
patients or a lawyer to look after the
interests of his clients. It Is sometimes
a dlsagrooablo task, and one that tho
editor would avoid if he could. And
news Items cannot be expected to be
infallible in all their details. When
there are conflicting reports, and both
sides are given as nearly correct as
possible, thero Is no room for reasonable
complaint. City nowspapers make the
best of everything and nobody thinks of
kicking. But a country newspaper
man, even when he tackles a subject in
a timid way, and deals gingerly with it,
is somotlmes found fault with. Truly
this 1b a queer world in which to reside.

A Pretty Story of Clerer French Crltl.
and HI. Two Prl.tiria.
Many odd and amusing stories are
told of the clever French critic, Jules
Janin, and his friends. ( None is mors
pleasing or more to their credit than
one in which Jan In, Theodore Burette,
the historian, nnd Leon Hatuyps, the
composer, author nnd critic, figured.
One of Janin's best friends was an old
aunt, who sent him to school when he
was a boy, kept house for hltn and took
good care of him when he, a young
man, was making his reputation, but
not much money, in literature.
It was perhaps in memory of her that
he mndo a protege of a poor old woman
whom he noticed one day in the street.
Ho placed her in a home for nged per
sons, and until her death years after
ward was her thoughtful and generous
friend. The good woman wns very ill
once, and when she was convalescing
"I want to go and call on M. Janin. I
mnst see him once more before I die."
One of the women of the institution
went with her. Janin was living then
in the top of a house which commanded
a beautiful view of the garden of the
Luxembourg. His "garret" wus filled
with books and pictures, but like any
othor garret it was reached by climbing
great many stairs. Slowly and pain
folly the old woman toiled np the long
flights. She had to sit down often to
rest. It took her nearly two hours to
reach the top. Janin was breakfasting
with Theodore Burette.
He received hnr with great cordiality
and affection, and the three had a happy
breakfast. The two men devoted them
selves to entertaining her. They In
quired all about the home, the rules, the
diversions, the food, her recent illness,
and listened with genial interest to all
she had to say. She said goodby, and
they made ready to escort her down
"We will return yonr visit soon," they
said, and placing themselves on either
sido of her they began to descend the
stairs. But the effort and excitement
had beon too much for the feeble old
lady. Her limbs failed her and she
could not take a step.
Just then Sutayes appeared on the
scene. "We must carry her down," he
said. So they placed her comfortobly
in nn armchair. Janin and Burette,
who were small men, took the back,
Satayes took the front, nnd they went
down flight after flight of the many
storied house breathless bnt cheerful.
"Well, my good woman," gasped Sa
tayes, "I don't know of any queen who
has a carriage like yours."
The three literary workers were hardly
in training for their achievement, bnt
they placed her safe and sonnd on the
sidewalk, and saw her go awny with her
attendant, her old heart deeply tonched
and pleased with the attentions she hail
received. Youth's Companion.
Oond Fellowship Among Ant. anil lie
Never among mankind can we find so
absolute and complete an absorption et
the individual by the social group as in
the cities of ants and bees, where indi
vidual property has never, it seems
been imagined. In these republics what
one citizeness has for herself belongs to
the others. Does hungry bee meet
ono laden with booty returning to a
city, she lightly taps her on the head
with her antennas and instantly the
latter hastens in a sisterly way to dis
gorge part of the nutriment provision
ally stored in her own stomach.
Ants proceed in the same way as bees
but in addition the ant thus sustained is
very careful to show her gratitude.
"The ant who feels the need of food,"
says Huber, "begins by tapping her two
antenns, with a very rapid movement,
upon the antennas of the ant from whom
she expects succor. Immediately they
may be seen approaching one another
with open mouth and extended tongue
for the communication of the liquid
which on passes to the other. During
this operation the ant who receives nour
ishment does not cease to caress the
friend who is feeding her, continuing to
move her antenna? with singular ac
tivity." "Property; Its Origin and De

A small boy recently brought a ladies'
gold watch into a Lewiston jewelry
store and desired to have a broken crys
tal replaced. The dealer had repaired
the watch a few days before and he had
its number and at once recognized it.
The rightful owner of the watch, as it
happens, lives neighbor to the jeweler,
and when he went home to supper that
night be called and asked them if they
had sent the watch to the shop for re
pairs. They said they had not. He
asked them if they had lent the watch
to any one and the answer was in the
They were qnite snre the watch wa
in the case where they had left it. At
the request of the jeweler they looked
and to their great surprise the watch
was not there. The jeweler then pro
duced the property and told of the boy's
coming to the store to have the crystal
put in. That was the first intimation
the family had of being robbed. Lewis
