If the child is corrected at school, she
invariably takes its art against the
teacher. Then, there is another class,
who neglects her family and devotes j
her time ta adorning herself-in trying
to look "you:;,'," but who in most
cases makes herself a target for ridi
cule. She b 'lorgs to that diss who
delights in attending parties, socials,
and balls, and who brazenly appears in
the ball-room w ith dress very much de

Oh! That every man might say with ;
a just feeling of pride, "All the good
things that my fellow countrymen as

mother." If every mother were to do ;
her duty honestly, diligently, and un-!
flinchingly by all her children, we J
should need no reformers but mothers,

Too many "Mammas" are teaching i
their children that appearances are ,
evcrythir.g-they must hasten to get '
rich and indulge their animal appetites; i
consequently, this old world of ours is j
becoming overcowded with dissatisfied, j
helpless, selfish human microbes, pol
luting and contaminating the healthy
lives of the pure, noble and true, and
making obsolete the old-fashioned
virtues of honor, chivalry, truth, and
justice. JJuc you ask me are there no
good and noble mothers. I answer,
yes. There are still many homes where
the pure mother is as the life-giving
sun, shedding all around her the
warmth and glowing comfort of her
kindly presence; but, alas, such moth
ers are too few.

Judge Jesse L. Root.
Miss Helen Travis, who is a teacher

At the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Ofe in this city, their daughter, Miss
Alice Ofe was married to Fred W.

one. Rev. Luther Moore of the Chris

This young couple have the best wishes
of their many friends.
Dr. W. 0. Henry, one of the leading
physicians and surgeons of Omaha de

Who are the workers who stand the
must with least effect on the health?
Those who never permit their day du
ties and their night duties to conflict.
Night, or part of It, is given to us
for rebuilding our exhausted systems.
Why then should we exhaust them the
more by trying to work the clock
It is not as if our strength would
stand more than a certain amount of
pressure. If there were no cases of
nervous prostration and brain fag,
heart failure and Insanity from try
ing to burn the candle at both ends
there might be more sense in defying
nature's rules. The slightest knowl
edge of people shows us those who
have ginie to the wall from hick of a
proper division of labor.
There Is not much danger for the
man or woman who can work wlthlu
well-defined limits; there is danger,
and near at hand, for those who make
their sleeping time a planning time,
who take the burdens of life as bed
fellows. Insomnia Is not a pleasant compan
ion, but It is a companion who i
will soon eling to you as a . limpet
if once you give it a chance
on sleeping hours. Each time you
wonder: "What shall I tell Mr.
Jones to-morrow?" instead of wooing
sleep you make a hid for insomnia.
You cannot control your thoughts?
That is a foolish notion. Thoughts
can be controlled as well as actions
if the desire and will power be pres
ent. Every time the thought of busi
ness pops Into your brain, push It out
again. Do not think at fill, if possi
ble; think of anything else save the
next day's duties. ' (
Making the mind a blank Is a great 1
help in the fight against planning
work Instead of sleeping. Try all the

Solitude and Society.
At the opposite jmiIch of our Inner
Vir.fr are two imperative needs. One
': fjr solitude, the other for society.
Wo.i tn never nach their best devel
i ti ent If t'uy live In londlness or
If tiny spend their whole lives In the
social whirl, writes Margaret E. Kang
ster in Woman's Home Companion.
For our soul's growth In goodness we
require lime in which to be alone.
To the busy mother with her little
ones around her, to the woman who
prepares three meals a day, to a third
who Is driven by social engagements,
It seems Idle to Insist that she shall
have an hour or two by herself be
tween sunrise and sunset. Without
this little space of quiet, let It be ever
so hard to attain, let me tell my sister
that she will cease to thrive mentally
and spiritually. She must think
enough about herself to claim this
privilege and hold It fast; but no one
should shut herself up and live apart
from her neighbors unless neighbors
are ' bo remote that to reach them
she must drive miles across country.
In this case the best plan Is to And
society in books and to cultivate In
the family a habit of playing games
and tpiiting In evening amusements.
Ways of JUising Money for Charity.
The method of raising money for
charities by such means as the confer
ring of decorative coat labels on "tag
day," is not altogether original. Prom
times immemorial in China a donation
of 20,000 taels to charity has secured
for the donor the much-prised pea
cock's feather, while for half that sum
a title of nobility ts conferred on one's
ancestors to the third generation. The
late emperor of Brazil followed the
same method when erecting a hospital
In Rio de Janeiro. Having found a
difficulty In obtaining the necessary
funds, he announced that the title of
"baron" was to be conferred on every
subscriber of 10,000 mllreis, and that
of "count" on subscribers of 250,000
mllrels. This announcement produced

The difficulty of living as a Christian

a young stenographer employed In a

"You can't live 'as Christ did and

Sunday she . attended the mass
meeting tf young Christians at ftp
worth Memorial church. She was one
of the 1.600 who stood up, promising
to live for the next two weeks as
Christ would. Two days of the ex
periment convinced her of Its Impos
sibility In Cleveland business life.
"It can't be done by an employe,"
she said. "The . employer himself
might carry the .morality of Christ
into his business If he chose. Hut the
employe at. least. In my case does
not, and It Is suicidal for the employe
to attempt it. Christ's morality and
business tact clash. An employe In

Among the dictionary definitions of
.'alousy is that of envy. True, an
other is zealous watchfulness, but this ,
slate of mind Implies fear, the uneasi
ness of uncertainty, and this is in
compatible with the perfect love which
casteth out fear. As associated with
love the word implies a dread of los
ing the thing desired, a state of lulnd
which to the timid perhaps Is nutuial '
ami well nigh Inevitable In the first'
stages of courtship.
The man who Is seeking to w In a
woman and who has rivals in the field
has a strain upon his nerves and emo-':

lie becomes worried, fanciful and
The woman who already Is won. but '
who must conceal her feelings until
the victor ehooses to claim his con
uuost, scarcely can fall to be restless,
capricious and nervous. This mainly !
Is due to the restraint which she Is j
putting upon herself and the haunting j
fear that he may be in love with some
one else. ,
Hut when the lover has spoken and
each holds the plighted troth of the
beloved, then jealousy even In Its
most amiable form involves a lack of
faith In the truth and the sincerity of
of the beloved which is anything but
complimentary, declares a writer In
the Chicago Tribune.
Whatever Its cause, Jealousy Is
bound to be a disturbing element, and
the less Indulged It Is the better. Al
ways the expression of It Is more
harmful than helpful. There Is a great
deal of truth In the doctrine of mental
suggestion as applied to love, and this
especially Is the case with men.
The Jealous woman hates to hear
other women praised, and though she
possibly may remark upon their good
qualities herself, she objects when one
of her own admirers, however faintly,
expresses admiration for another wom
an. And when she praises it is with a
reservation. "She Is pretty, but," etc.
No wise man would marry a jealous
woman, however much he might care
for her, could he realize how little
peace and rotnfort probably will be his
portion after marriage No wise wom
an would marry a Jealous jnan, since
she certainly could not hope to be hap
py if she did.
Jealousy Is responsible for more
broken engagements, more matrimo
nial unhapplness, than any other
cause, with the possible exception of
beastly Intemperance In drink. Yet
people who ought to know better go
on excusing It, claiming that It Is
the result of love and the natural out
comg oX-a.hrimbl6jpph3hjn of oneself,
Instead of'belug, as In nearly all
cases It is, the result of colossal van
ity, a vanity which Is exasperated at
the thought, of precedence given to an
other. The man or woman whose tempera
ment will allow him or her to pass
through life superior to the pangs of
Jealousy has cause to be thankful. It
Is wise to remember the saying of the
Greek sage, that "what is worthy of
Jealousy Is not worthy of love."

Tribute to French Wives.
French girls make good wives. The
French bride is comparatively less ex
travagant than her liritlsh or Ameri
can sister. Where the Ilrltlsh wife re
quires $4 a week, the American wife
$18 or $-0 a week for the housekeep
ing, the French wife will msnage ad
mirably on 11.90. The Frenchwoman
does not regard her husband as a
mere money making machine and her
house simply as a place to sleep In.
As soon as she Is married she Is her
husband's partner In business as well
as In private life. She considers It
her duty to make herself acquainted
with every detail of her husband'sbusl
ness. No French husband will think
of taking any Important step without
first consulting his wife, and her ad
vice Is often amazingly shrewd.
Violent Method of Courtship.
W. i'ett Hldgo, the English novelist, -Is
a good story teller, and most of his -stories
concern people In the' poorer
ranks of life, and by far the greater
number of them have the merit of be
ing true. Tho following contains
rare touch of human nature, and
speaks for Itself. A certain club for
working girls In the East end of Lon
don had recently elected a new mem
ber, and one day the secretary hap
pened to look out of the window,
and was surprised to see the new mem
ber rush up to a strange lad In the
street, punch him violently on the
head, and then run away. The secre
tary remonstrated with her sharply,
to which the new member made re
ply: "I'm very sorry; I won't do It no
more, if It's agin the rules; but per
haps you won't mind telling me, then,
how am I ever to get engaged?'
Immense Normandy Apple Crop.
This year will go down to posterity
in Normandy as (he apple year. Never
until this year has a Normandy farmer
been known to express satisfaction
with his crop. Ills usual answer about
It Is that "for a year where there ar
no apples (here are apples, but for &
year where there are apples there are
no apples to speak of." This vague
ness Is a Norman peculiarity. You
cannot get a "yes" or "no" In answer
to a question from a Norman peasant.
"Well, perhaps yes," or. "After all, per
haps not," Is the nearest he will ever
go to a positive assertion. But thl
year he admits to a good apple crop.
During the past month 50,000 till way
truck loads of apples have beeu sent
along the Western line as against
6,000 (rucks last year.
