Ilavo you lieard the tale of the aloe
Away In the sunny clime?
By humble growth of a bundled years
It reaches Its blooming time,
And then a wondrous bud at Its crown
Breaks into a thousand flowers:
This floral queen, in its blooming seen,
Is the pride of the tropical bowers,
But tho plant to the flower is a sacri
fice, For ft blooms but once, and in bloom
ing dies.
Have you heard of this aloe plant
That grows in the sunny clime,

Tho tale of the holy and true?

It pays richly to give them care and
cultivation, ard unless you are will
ing to "put up with any old thing," in
tho way of a flower, I should advise
you to cultivate hardy weeds instead,
for a neglected weed will scarcely re
proach you, while a starved flowering
plant will.
It is hardly worth while to start an
nuals in tho house, for, unless you can
give them proper care, their later
planted outdoor sisters will out
thrive them. A busy housewife can

Emerson says: "Do not bark
against evil, hut chant the beauties
of the good." To recognize the good
in ail things is to gradually outgrow
in consciousness that which we are
wont 10 can evil. Menial discord nas
cord in music has upon the piece ren
dered; it destroys its harmonious ef
fect and symmetry; it grates upon the
ear of the listener and arouses feel
ings of repulsion. If you allow your
lives to become filled with jangling
mental discords, you will repel people
and things. The discords of your life
should not be due to outside influ
ences. The kingdom of your soul be
longs to you alone, and no outside
power can invade that kingdom except
by your permission; therefore, if your
daily life manifests discords it is be
cause vou entertain thom in na iht.v
dom of the mind.
it you allow the inharmonles of life
to poison your soul, if you give room
to greed, onvy, resentment, hatred,
jealousies and discontent, then you
must hold yourself responsible for the
consequences of entertaining such a
foul brood. There is within every one
of us a real self which dwells in a
perfect harmony which nothing can
disturb, unless with our consent. He

Mrs. L. M. N. Very few papers,

money paid in for subscriptions at all
adequate to meet the expenses of pub

obtained, and the publishers are thus
enabled to ask paying returns for
their advertising space.

waist in this. There must be suf

the' waist, which is to be cleaned and
the jar must bo tightly closed so as to
prevent evaporation. If the cover Is
not tight-jitting it must be made so
by using a cover of cloth, flannel or
some like close firm weave, well tied
on between the lid and the jar. Allow
the waist to remain in the jar over
night; in the morning it will be found
perfectly clean, and the dirt which
has been removed will be settled in
tho bottom of the jar. Rinse quickly
in clean gasoline, shake out well in

The gasoline so used may bo kept for

How tho Pastor Saved a, Life
A man near Fort Gay, W. Va.,
made an entire failure of getting
strength from tho kind of food he ate
and not knowing that the trouble
was with the food kept on losing
health until the doctors gave him up
to die.
It was supposed to be consumption
because he was wasting away steadily
and slowly dying. His minister called

brought along a package of Grape
Nuts thinking from what he knew o
