Thero Is no moro Interesting story In tho

career of Miss Marianne North, who du
voted her llfo to thu painting of pictures
of plants and animals, and whose auto
biography lears thusuggestlvutltlu, "Heo
ollectious of a Happy Life."
Miss North had a higher object than
merely to make beautliul pictures. She
endeavored to represent with absolute
Ildellty to naturu thu colors and forms of
(lowers and plants, and thu characteristics
of animal llfu In all parts of thu earth.

I.ojully lii thu Home Circle.
Loyalty In thu home circle Is not as often
considered ns It ought to be; It should bo
held as part of thu ethics of family honor
never to speak slightingly of any member
of thu household to outsiders. The old and
toniewlmt vulgar proverb, "Wash all your
Milled linen at home," contains the gist of
an obvious truth. Parents should Impress
this family loyalty upon their children,
and teach them that it means dignity and
Mreugth and happiness to be thu guardians
of their own hearth, as It were, thu stanch
defenders of thu honor of thu family.
nroiiiers ami sisters should nuver allow
themselves to say anything derogatory of
inch other to their ncoualutnucos what
ever may to their private differences.
Husbands and wives would do well to re
memtor that "nagging" at each other, or
even what Is called "running each other
In public," is not only disloyal 'to tho
family dignity, but Is In very bad taste,
and Is moreover exceedingly tiresome to
any ono who may be with them. Mothers
even good, loving mothers have an un
wise way sometimes of bringing every
trivial fault to thu surfacu before any one
who happens to to present.
Parents, too, should to loyal to their
thlldren if they expect the latter to to
loyal to f hem. Every now and again wo
tee a family where thu men all become
more or less prominent In their various
walks iu life, and in almost every case
thero will to found among them a very
strong sentiment of what thu world calls
"clannUhiiess," but what might to totter
designated as faithfulness. Even from a
Worldly point of view young people would
do well to rememtor that whatever keeps
the family together In faithful allegiance
adds to thu position and Influence nnd con
llderatlon of each member Individually.

A Woman Who Has l'ruied Her Honraty,
One of the first women who weru assigned

them their supper or put them to tod, but
I ho ouu duty that stared her iu the facu
was to protect that money. She sat down
Upon the bav and quietly waited for the
hours to go by.
At I o'clock iu tho morning she heard
the shutuiug step of General Siiluuer In

to his room
She ultlctly slloiied along thu
corridor, knocked at his door and told him
lint she had found. The general had the
box taken to his room and sent Sonhla

when sho returned sho found the general

And thu ropo of tho lag wasn't stronir.
We talked of thu hopes of the future
And spoku of thu dreams of thu past:
Homo dreams had been broken and shuttered
As roM". are killed by thu Must;
Hut ours, they wen- built on atfectluu
Ten lasting to die llko a song;
And Evangeline's weight wus to hundred.
And tho rope of Ihe tuiug wasn't tlrong,

What followed I du nut remember,
Hut I've w-.dl.cd on a crutch ucr sluco.

For Kviiiigelimi i weight was Iwo hundred,
And tho rope of the sw lug wasn't ntroug.
