The First Aid to Love
By DOllOTiir 1IX.
A great many people besides Mr. Boom
velt are greatly concerned about the de
cline and falling off In matrimony, as Mr.
Were might say. All sorts of reasons,

when -there was a set parlor, sacred to
the girls and their beaux,' every girl of
ordinary attractions had plenty of beaux,
and In due time got comfortably married.
Nowadays when the young man who goes
a-vlsitlng has to sit In" the bosom of the
girl's family, and where he has to do his
love making. If he does It at all. In the
presence of all her Immediate relatives,
men callers are few, and courting Is fast
becoming a loRt art.
Nor is this to be wondered at. There
are some things for which a man wants
privacy, and the absolute certainty that
no other ear than the one for which they

In the first place, then, a father who
has marriageable daughters should pro

Is at least one room where a man can

when they are not it is up to the family
to go and sit In the kitchen on the wash

Don't be too critical of every young
man who comes to see your daughters.
It Is every father's duty to investigate

and what the matrimonial prospects are.
Success In matrimony, just as success in
business, depends entirely upon oppor
tunity. The prettiest and most charming
girl on earth couldn't marry in an Adam

Almost every one lias a favorite book.

men have even said that thry have one

Now suppose, for the sake of playing
a gnme, that you were to be sent to a

your days. Kvrrythlng you desire Is to
be at your service Jn unlimited profusion
except hooks. Of these you may have
only ten, and these ten you must select

What ten would you take?
This Is not so much a fool gams a It
might appear. With the tremendous In
crease of books In the world It Is becom
ing a serious question what we shall try
to read. It Is clear enough that we can
not read them all. or any considerable
portion of them all.
Hence It is wise for every one to have
up his sleeve so to say a few favorite
books that are solid enough to be to him
as good friends. Therefore, If you an
swer this question you may clear up our
own thoughts on the subject, and prob
ably help some one else to do the same.

What One Man Did
By PKRCY SHAW.
A group of laborers was filling In a
street trench; half a dosen loaded shov
els were poised In air when the noon
whistle blew. All but one man dropped
the dirt back on the pile. The other five
were young, but they might as well have
been centenarians, for they will be shov
elling dirt till they die. Which la another,
way of saying that discriminating na
ture has provided plenty of room at the
bottom to accommodate her children of
Nature never makes a mistake, and
therein she differs from the thinking
creatures she creates. She regulates her
multi-trillions of unthinking animals and
plant families with nicest precision; she
colors each flower for a distinct purpose;
she fashions her legions of Insects that
they may better attain their foreordained
goal in her general scheme; with all-'
seeing eya she watches the course of the
ant In the formicary with the same pa-'
tlence that she supervises the tltanlo up
heavals on our shrinking sun.
But, having bestowed upon us the
unique gift of reason, she leaves us to
determine when, where and how we shall
sow and reap.
Therefore, when at the sound of the
whistle you see a man dropping his shov
elful of work back on the pile of things
undone, you may set him down as one of
the children of the clock.
