Education a Gift.
. la the common schools of the United
States are now enrolled more than
16,000,000 children, or about one-fifth of
the population, under nearly half a mil
lion teachers. As this education Is
'given to the children free it is at the
.bottom, says the New Tork Sun, and
-very truly, of the nature of a charity.
The state takes them under its guar
jdianship so far as concerns their ele
mentary instruction and bestows on
.them its bounty. The state exercises .1
function in behalf of its citizens in this
matter of education of very much the
same kind as it employs in their sani
tary regulation, now carried to so great
an extreme of expense and of detail.
-XJke school instruction, this sanitary
regulation is a measure of self-protection
for the state, since unsanitary con
ditions in a particular district affect in
juriously the whole community in
:which the region i3 situated. Hospit
als, also, are maintained for a like rea
son, or not merely for the particular
ibenefit of the sick in them but that the
(general public health may be protect
ed. From the cradle to the grave the
jpoorest citizen is looked after by the
'.municipal authorities. The whole ma
chinery of society is organized for his
ibenefit The defective and the delin
quent and even the vicious are looked
after without regard to any share they
may have in paying the cost or in in
creasing it The spirit of charity ex
pends its wings over the whole com
Imunity. So also the college and uni
versity may be called a benevolent in
stitution, wholly or in great part The
llatest statistics of the United States
'bureau of education enumerates 443 of
'these, in which the students number
jl39,157 young men and 41.97T young
women, who contribute in tuition fees
'less than one-half of the total income.
jto say nothing of the interest on the
(cost of plant, appliances, etc. More
than half of the education of these
(students is purely gratuitous. To that
extent they are the recipients of char
ity. Besides about $90,000,000 of pro
ductive funds, these institutions have
'invested in grounds and buildings, in
'libraries and apparatus, nearly as
much more. Except for this endow
.ment in productive funds, a gratuity
o the students, most of the institu
tions would have to go out of business.
Munificent gifts to the3e endowment
funds have distinguished this country
for many years past, yet there is not
now a single university or college
which is not in need of more. Appli
cations for still further benefactions
are urgently made by the oldest and
most famous universities in the
union. These facts cast no reflection
on the pupils and students, but prove
simply that the educational advantages
these enjoy are largely of the nature
of a free gift by society or by indi
viduals of wealth.
Hennery Phonography.
A Stockport (N. Y.) poultry farmer
has had great trouble of late because
his hens were not producing the proper
number of eggs. A nearby neighbor
has a fine flock of hens which were
working overtime to produce eggs.
While hanging over the back fence
.listening to the triumphant cackle of
his neighbor's hens, says a local in
formant an idea struck the luckless
owner of bens. He went into the house
and brought out his pnonograph, in
serted a blank record and succeeded in
getting a fine imitation of the cackling
of the laying hens. He then installed
the phonograph in his own hen house
and started it going. The first day the
hens were greatly amazed, but the sec
ond day they got down to business
and ground out an egg every time the
phonograph cackled. The hens have
stopped cackling themselves, however,
and when the phonograph stops ihey
stop laying and the originator of the
Idea has to sit in his coop all day long
to keep the phonograph going.
"Misrepresented Men" might be the
title of a volume of sad biographies.
Whenever a university professor cays
'something which may be reasonable
enough in the way he puts it and in
its relation to his whole discourse, but
which is capable of sensational distor
tion, it is next to impossible, says
Youth's Companion, to put him right
with the public. Dr. Ira Remsen, pres
ident of Johns Hopkins university, said
at a meeting of graduates that he did
not dare tell what Dr. Osier really said
that has given rise to the absurd
"Osier theory;" if he did he might be
come notorious and have to travel In
cognito, like Dr. Osier himself, whf
has several times taken refuge la an
assumed name in order to journey in
peace.

SUGGESTIONS FOR SOME SEA
SOKABLE ENTERTAINMENTS.
Decorations and Menu for an April
Ituncheon Old May-Day Customs
Prettily Revived Keep the
Holidays.
An April Ituncheon.
''April showers bring May flowers,"
so for the centerpiece have a small
sized Japanese umbrella, or a doll's
parasol; underneath put a low mound
of spring blossoms, such as crocus,
trailing arbutus or tulips. Tiny ub
brellas, opened at each place, may have
the name written on a card tied to the
handle. If the house has electric lights,
open a good-sized Japanese umbrella
and tie it to the gas or light fixture
that is over the table; then to each rib
fasten a very small electric light; when
the room is darkened and the lights
turned on the effect is most pleasing.
Serve either a fruit salpicon of or
anges, pineapple and bananas, in
glasses, or clam bouillon; a good brand
of the canned bouillon will be found
satisfactory. Sweetbreads or chicken
with peas and potatoes in some form
come next, then a lettuce and tomato
salad with cheese wafers and a frozen
dessert If coffee has not been served
with the repast it is a pretty English
custom to serve it in the drawing
room, the tray being brought in and
the hostess pouring. Small cups are
used. This luncheon could precede a
card party or an afternoon musicale.
May Day Doings.
The old custom of keeping the first
day of May is being revived, especially
by people who live in the country, who
make a practice of sending baskets
filled with wild flowers to their friends
who are so unfortunate as to be de
barred from gathering them personal
ly. The city people observe the aay
by sending baskets of fruit and flow
ers to the sick, or to their friends who
may be in sorrow, and the children
have revived the English method of
hanging "May" baskets on the door
knobs of their friends and then run
ning away before the ring is answered.
These baskets may be made at home or
may be of an inexpensive kind pur
chased for a trifle. They should con
tain preferably wild flowers, fruit a
simple gift: and one young hostess de
livered her invitations in this novel
way, hanging the baskets to the door
by a loop of ribbon.
For a center piece at a May party,
have a pole some 30 inches high, sup
ported on a firm, flat base about 12
inches across. Fasten inch-wide rib
bon of the delicate pastel shades at the
top of the pole. Give these a few
twists and then carry them to each
place, where they are tied to the han
dle of miniature baskets bearing the
name of the guest, also holding the
salted nuts.
To ihoose partners for any enter
tainment scheme the hostess may have
.in mind, or for cards, make a "tulip
bed." Fill a shallow wooden box with
sawdust or sand, covered with green
crepe paper and place It on a tabouret
or stand. Then realistic tulips can be
made from crepe tissue paper, if real
ones cannot be procured. On the end
of each stem wire a half of some well
known quotation, or the title of a
book; the other half of the quotation
and the name of the author of the book
must be wired to other tulips. Each
guest pulls a flower and proceeds to
hunt his partner. The end of one of
the tulips will have a drawing of a
crown on it; the person gathering that
one must be "crowned" with a garland
of flowers, either real or artificial, and
have some one read Tennyson's "I Am
to be Queen of the May, Mother."
Intimate friends and sweethearts
often exchange gifts on May day, the
little tokens being concealed in a box
or basket of flowers. In this busy
workaday world, it is a good thing to
remember all these special days that
will vary the monotony of the com
monplace; sentiment is in danger of
beaTig crowded out and the revival of
theec old world festivals is one of the
most hopeful signs of the times. Ma
dame Merri trusts that every -mother
and home-maker will take the trouble
to look up the history and romance
that Is connected with all the "special"
days that are mentioned from time to
time in the department Children enter
heartily into the spirit of such oc
casions, and whatsoever serves to
make them happy also serves to make
them good.

that she should remove them at all.
unless she is spending the day. For
a large dinner, where the long gloves
are worn, covering the arm, a lady
takes off only the hand of the glove
and slips it into the wrist A lady
is never well dressed for the street,
for receptions, for any evening enter
tainment without gloves.
Popular Colors in Hats.
Spring green, mauve, violet, ash
gray, red, corinth and burnt straw are
the colors most in demand. Few hats
are one-colored, the tendency being to
harmonize several colors. Almost any
colors can be combined, if artistically
managed. One Paris mods combines
must beautifully shades of deep red,
pink, violet and blue.
The Corselet Skirt
A great many corselet skirts are
seen at present This mode lends it
self best to fabrics which hang grace
fully and with elegance, such as the
ever popular faced doth. A short
corselet skirt rarely looks well, one of
its essentials being the long, graceful,
sweeping lines.
A SEASON OF LACE.
Such Charming Little Jackets Ar
Offered To-Day The Various
Styles and Laces.
As this Is a season of lace, the lacs
department is of particular interest
Among the many charming novelties
shown are the little lace jackets which
promise to form an important feature
of the season's toilets. These ars
shown in real French and Irish lace,
combined with batiste and hand em
broidery, with graceful little quarter
sleeves. Others are in baby Irish and
heavy crochet, with half sleeves and
slashed up the back. The same style
of jacket Is shown in their batiste
and "Val" combinations. Collars and
chemisettes, with cuffs and half sleeves
to match, in all the fashionable laces,
are another feature of this department
and there are some beautiful speci
mens of the new Point d'Auvergne.
One may select from a large variety
of beautiful white waists here and
practically all waists are white this
season. One attractive model was
of accordion plaited chiffon, with
handmade German "Val" insertion,
three large German medallions form
ing the yope. The short sleeves and a
girdle were of white satin. Another
model was fo all-over net, with imi
tation Irish insertion and perpendicu
lar tucks, forming a pointed -yoke.
The short sleeves were finished with a
ruffle of net and the high neck with a
niching of German "Val." A charm
ing china silk waist had tucks and
German "Val." insertion simulating a
bolero jacket The sleeves were
trimmed with bands of perpendicular
insertion, with -a cuff of insertion, and
small ruffles of china silk.
The summer suits and dress fabrics
show a striking predominance of
gray bride's gray, princess gray and
small black and white stripes, checks
and figures, giving tlje gray effect In
the foulards and figured India silks,
which they make a specialty of here,
this color seems to be particularly at
tractive. Gray also appears in hosiery, but
white is the predominating color in
this department, as elsewhere. Lace
hosiery is a leader again, but the em
broidered hosiery that was in such
demand last season is seen no more,
except in a few special designs. In
the same way, the highly colored
stripes and plaids that were consid
ered correct In men's hosiery last sea
son have disappeared, being replaced
by the plain colors and black.
HANDSOME FERN STAND.
The Upper Part May Be Used for a
Plant, the Lower for Mag
azines or Books.
The note of "living green" that adds
so decidedly to the attractiveness of
sitting-room, library or other apart
ment, is introduced oftentimes in the
most satisfactory way by a lernery.

bright or ornate, an ornamental stand
for the soft green plants is a desirable
addition. And it may be as handsome
as taste and purse will permit An
example of such a stand is here illus
trated, the lower shelf serving as an
excellent resting place for tanks or
magazines.
Hedebo Embroidery.
I fear it would not be practicable to
put in the pattern as you suggest
Hedebo embroidery has a close but
tonhole stitch worked around the large
figures which are to be cut out, the
buttonhole edge always being worked
toward the center of the figure. The
linen is cut away and fancy lace
stitches are Introduced. Among those
most used are the Maltese cross and
the spider stitch. Mercerized cotton
from 25 to 30 is used for the work, ac
cording to the weight of the material
you are embroidering upon. If you will
get a sheet of red Impression paper,
lay your pattern upon it and the black
pongee underneath it you can take off
the design by drawing over each line
with a hard, sharp pencil.
Hat3 and Coiffures.
Paris milliners deserve to be com
plimented on the success of their ef
forts this season, for the new shapes
are not only prettier but promise to
be more generally becoming than those
of last season. But the hat is still
identified with the coiffure, and the
latter must absolutely conform to the
hat if the tout ensemble is to be suc
cessful. FINANCIAL NOTE.

BASEBALL IN MIDWINTER.

everybody else in Medicine Hat Al

without wearing overcoats. It was
such a day as one might expect to

Is a peculiar wind which is expe

of the Rocky Mountains. It is caused
by a high atmospheric pressure in the
upper heavens. This creates a down

HE WAS COOLNESS ITSELF.
Philosopher Gives Practical Demon
stration of the Value of His
Pet Theory.
Perhaps there never was a man who
so thoroughly believed in taking things
coolly as Mr.'Bulteel. The disadvan
tages of worry, and the foolishness of
rush, no matter what circumstance
might arise, was the never falling text
upon which he hung many and many
an improving discourse, says London
Answer.
But, as so often happens, Mr. Bui
teel's opportunities for putting his fa
vorite theory into practice had been
few, until one fateful night when he
and his wife were aroused from their
midnight slumber by the dread cry,
"Fire!"
He was coolness itself.
"My dear," he said calmly to his
wife, "the time has come when we will
find in practice the value of what I
have always preached. Dress yourself
quickly, but keep ccol."
In tense silence they busied them
selves in the operation of quick but
unhurried dressing. Then Mr. Bulteel
slipped his watch into his waistcoat
pocket, and they walked safely out of
the burning building.
"There, my dear," he said to his
wife, when the danger was over, "you
see the great value of my philosophy
of coolness. Now, if we had lost our
beads"
His wife glanced at him for the first
time since the alarm had been given.
"Yes, William," she said, sweetly,
"your philosophy is both charming
and useful; but really, dear, if I hid
been you I would have put on a pair
of trousers!"
New Nomenclature.
It is the opinion of the London

a new era of nomenclature, and
that critics may shortly expect in

"Day-after-to-morrow Dolly," "Delib

Comment and Suggestive Thought
V. 1. "Again ... by the sea." J.ros
frequently taught by the Sea of Galilee.
"Very great multitude." "Out of every
city." (Luke). "Entered into a snip
(boat) . . . sea." Seated himself, as a
Jewish rabbi would have done, at the
prow of the boat, nearest the shore.
V. 2. "Many things by parables."
Matthew records seven parables spoken
on this occasion, and Mark adds one
more. All related to aspects of
Christ's kingdom, or its growth.
V. 3. "Behold." An exclamation to
attract attention; quite possibly, also,
Jesus pointed to the adjoining hillside,
where that of which he told was being
enacted. "A sower ... to sow." "His
basket of seed slung under his left
arm, with steady, measured pace he
marched up and down his portion of
the open field, jerking his handful of
corn before him at every step." Tris
tram. V. 4. "By the wayside." Upon the
trodden pathway running through or
by the side of the field. "The fowls
came and devoured it." Great flocks of
rock-pigeons and crows dwell in the
hills and valleys surrounding the Sea
of Galilee.
V. 5, 6. "Stony grounds." Places
where a thin layer of earth covered an
underlying slab of rock. This rock,
becoming warm by the sun, causes the
seeds which fall upon it to sprout
quickly, but also prevents their roots
from striking downward and finding
sustenance In the soil.
V. 7. "Among thorns." Thorn-bearing
plants, of which there are many
varieties in Palestine. "Choked it"
The thorns, being stronger, soon over
top the grain and rob it of the sun
light; their roots also rob the g-ain
roots of moisture, and perhaps twine
around and actually "choke" it.
V. 8. Read this according to the Re
vised rendering. "Thirtyfold. . . sixty
fold ... an hundredfold." It is not
uncommon that, from one grain of
wheat sown upon the fertile soil of
Palestine, heads bearing 30, 60 or even
100 grains are produced.
V. 9. "He that hath ears to hear,
let him hear." Jesus' call to all His
hearers, inviting them to pay earnest
heed that they might understand and
truly profit from what they had heard.
V. 10. "When alone ... the twelve."
When the crowd had dispersed after
all the parables spoken on this occa
sion had been given, a little company
truly desirous of understanding, gath
ered about Jesus, and asked Him to
Interpret them.
V. 11. "Unto you is given." Be
cause yon are sincere in heart and re
ceptive in mind. "The mystery of the
kingdom or God." The secret religious
rites .of the Greeks were called "mys
teries." The Gospel of Christ is a ravs
tery In that it can be clearly under
stood only by those whose hearts re
ceive It
V. 12. "Seeing not perceive," etc.
A free quotation from Isa. 6: 9. 10, bet
ter rendered in Matt 13:13; where it is
clearly shown that the failure to see
Is because of willfully shutting the
eyes that is, hardening the heart
V. 14. "The sower soweth the word."
Jesus knows that His hearers will from
this understand that He, at the
time of speaking, is the Sower. The
seed Is the "Word of God." the proc
lamation of God's love which He was
continually teaching by gracious words
and kindly deeds. The field, as a sub
sequent parable tells, is "the world."
V. 15. "They by the wayside." Tney
whose hearts, like the wayside, have
been hardened by being made "a com
mon mad for every evil influence.
V. IB. The second class of hearers
"hear the Word, immediately receive
It with gladness." Their emotions are
stirred; tbey are pleased, exhilarated,
made happy, and without any deep
thought, decide hastily that they will
be followers of Jesus. Prompt decision
is not condemned, but the lack of sin
cerity and deep purpose.
V. 17. "Have no root In themselves."
Their hearts do not really take hold of
Jesus. They think themselves Chris
tians, because, at the moment, that
seems to be the most attractive life.
"When tribulation or persecution
ariseth." The rock-bed of selfishness
lies under these emotions.
Practical Points.
V. 3. It becomes us to hearken at
tentively to every message of God.
Hab. 2:1.
V. 9. We are without excuse if the
Gospel message which comes to our
ears is not permitted to find lodgment
In our hearts. Rom. 1: 20. 21 .
V. 14-. Jesus representatives udod
earth to-day are commissioned to sow
the Word of God beside all wa;ers.
John 17:18; Matt. 28:19.
V. 17. Personal faith in the living
Saviour is the root which does tot
wither in the furnace of affliction.
Job 13:15.
The Scotch Domine's Reply.
A Scottish minister who has served
hgh English government officials in his
congregation was asked whether he
was not "put about" by having his
audience so great a thinker and
speaker as Mr. Balfour. He answered:
"No, I know Mr. Balfour, and If I have
a real conviction, and am to express
it plainly without any aim at orna
ment, I feel, when he is present, I
shall have an interested, discriminat
ing, and sympathetic listener." Tab
Is true everywhere.

I could hardly stand, and my heart 1:
came so dizzy that it seemed as if the
floor was moving around.

that I was obliged to give up work in the
mill, and later still I became so feebly
that I could not even attend to me
household duties. After the slightest
exertion I had to lie dowu and rest uutil

"A friend who had used Dr. Williams
Pink Pills for Pale People urged me to
try them. I bought a box aur! began to
take them. The benefit wu-i positive
and so quickly evident tlca i continued
to use the pills nutil I had r.iken alto
gether six boxes. By that time I was
entirely cured, and for two vars I have
had no return of my tronble. I am now
in the best of health and ablo to attend
to all ray duties. I am glad to acknowl

Cream Separators in Nebraska.
There are now nearly 35,000 cream
separators in use In Nebraska, which
makes it the greatest cream separator
state in the union. This universal use
of the cream separator speaks elo
quently of its money making qualities
and thousands of farmers In tho corn
and wheat belts who formerly en
gaged In grain raising and general
farming now find it infinitely more
profitable to engage in dairying. The
Nebraska Experiment Station authori
ties estimate that from 85 to 90 per
cent of the 35,000 separators in use
In Nebraska are the farmers' De
Laval machines. This is not surpris
ing, as their excellent efficiency and
the general satisfaction they give have
made a market for them la all
of the world.
The wise one writes love
and mails them in the grate.
