kOV ninny of tho Busy Docs, 1 wonder, huvo over heard tho
w n
story of tho Easter Lily? Of course you all know what this
beautiful flower looks like and that it always blooms at
Easter time. This beautiful Illy has bloomed for people
through all time not only one contury, but almost twenty
centuries. Legends tell us that when Christ died and left
this earth In order to prove his love for his people, this won
IS
derful lily appeared In the fields. A number of different flowers grew
around It, but none had so stately an appearance na this one. The beautl
ul white petals, curved and delicate, beamed brilliantly In the fields, and
teemed to tell of tho purity of tho lovo which Christ hnd for all. This Is
why on Easter day wo fill our churches with these beautiful flowers and
send them to our friends. One can not look at these white blossoms with
out feeling tho purity and love that Clod has given tho world.

The Play.
By Blanche Johnson, 3M1 Cass Street,
Omaha, ltcd Hide.
"Children," said the clear voice of Miss
Hcrford, one aftornoon near the close of
the fccsslon. "f have decided to give a
little play to celebrate the close of school,
nould you like It?"
"Like It." echoed tho children, "of
roiuse we would."
Tho next day Miss Hcrford gave out
neatly written sheets of paper, contain
ing the pails and the names of those
who Tier to play them, and that same
McnliiR ii group of girls stood disputing
-tier the one ot which would be .chosen
to play the leading part, which Miss
llerford said would be glvon out the fol
lowing day.
"Dear me." said Margaret Kerly, "of
eourse I whould lovo to be chosen to be
the fairy mum. but Just think If you
should forget your pnrt."
"I don't oaro who gets It Just so Hazel
Smith won't," cried Dorothy Pryor.
Now, Hazel Smith was it new pupil In
the little' Bedford county school and had
.(inio from New York to this llttlo tnomi.
tain town whero it was thought that the
flue climate would help her falling
health. When Hazel hnd entered tho
school Bho had proved herself so dis
agreeable to all the children that she
soon found herself out of all tho merry
making, but Miss llerford was charmed
with ilnxel and she was fast becoming
a favorltb with tho teacher, so that now
sho stood u largo ehance of having the
-oveted part.'
"Why, what's all tho gossip between
tho ladles?" laughed Hob Stone, who was
a jolly hoy, and who had lieon chosen
ilng In the play. '
"Oh, nob!" exclaimed pretty Patty
Wold, "we aro so afraid that Hazel Smith
will bo chosen queen In our play."
"The queen." echoed Hob, and mode a
wry face. "W.oll, so long girls, seo you
tomorrow," ho cried, and made a Imsty
exit.
The llttiotarty soon broko up and the
slrls walked slowly homeward still talk
ing of the play.
It was a week later, tho day of tho
play, HuscI, as tho girls had said, had
been chosen 'queen. Kverythlng was In
readiness and tho stage, with the chil
dren's help, bad been changed Into a
forest glen reudy for a dance, of the
fairies. Many of the small .actors were
irrlvlng and all was In excitement. Mar
laret, Dorothy iid Patty were some or
ihe early arrivals, and now they were
ready to appear on tho stage. The thrco
had costumes nllkc except for tho color
ing. Patty's was a fluffy light yellow,
which suited, her dark complexion. Doro
thy had pink and Margaret n light shndo
f blue, and together presented a pretty
'.Ho. Just then Hob sauntered up.
"Ten minutes more and tlio curtain
loes up seared?" he asked.
"No," said Patty. "I could do two parts,
and, by the wny, I Itnow two. mine and
Hazel's, and" but her speech was stopped
by the appearanro of Hazel, whoso eyes
showed sho had been crying.
'"Why. Hazel, what's the matter?" cried
tho bujy Miss llerford. "Tell me."
"Oh, I've forgotten my part. I can't
hlnk of a word," sobbed Hazel.
"Now my play Is ruined." exclaimed
tho horrified teacher, "and nobody knows
her part."
"Oh, Miss llerford, Patty knows every
word of it," said Margaret.
"Patty, do you? Can you say It all?"
sho cried.
"Yes I can." suld Patty. And already
Miss llerford had taken off the fairy
costume and Patty had the right one on.
"(Jet In line, quick," Miss Herford said,
and when the line marched It waa headod

Katherlne waa n small girl that hnd
nearly .everything a small girt can have.
Bho got her playthings mainly by wish
ing. Ono day she decided she wanted a
dog so sho cried nnd teased until her
father brought her tho biggest dog In
town, but he first made her promise that
sho would not wlh for anything again
for a month. This she did readily enough,
but tho very next day sho asked her
father to buy her a collar for Itovor, for
thut Is what sho named the dog. Hut
htr father suld, "No, I will not buy the
dog a collar until the month Is up." This
made Katherlne very mad, and when Bho
cried neither her nunt Jane or her father
or mother would pay any attention to
her, That afternoon Katherlne thought
she would run off with Rover for she had
decided that no one liked hr. Bo she
set out for the North Pole, for sho had
heard that It was very far off and there
no uno would find her and her father
would li very sorry he had not bought
her the dog collar. Hut before she had
gone very far she got very tired, no she
sat down on the sidewalk and leaning
her head on Rover she went to sleep.
Her father happened to como along soon
and he guessed her troubles very soon.
He picked her up and carrl "uer home,
where ho put her In as near the same
position as he could. Like she was when
ho found her. Thon ho went Into tho
next room nnd found Kntherlne's mother
talking about something to the neighbor.
It was a plan of dressing up like a fairy
and trying to cure Katherlne of her
wishing. It was accepted and the neigh
bor dressed up like a fairy, went Into
the room where Katherlne was and woke
her up. The first thing Katherlne said
was, "Who brought me here?" "I did,"
said the fairy. "Who are youT" said
Katherlne. "I am the fairy of irood

"Hetter be eureful," said the fairy.
"Oh. please have my papa come." said
Katherlne.
"Papa, come." said the fairy, and papa
stepped Into the room.
"Now, liuve mama tome, then have
Aunt Jane come." said Katherlne.
"Mama come." said the fairy. "Aunt
Jane, come." said the fairy. And mama
and Aunt Jane came Into the room. After
the fairy had gone Katherlne said. "I

I would )ve two moio wlshoa."
"Yes." ald her father, "that would

Before his death Mr. Ilasncss, who was
an old soldier of the civil war, told me
many stories.
He was one of the soldiers who marched
with Sherman to tho sea. Here Is one of
the stories he told me, which happened
as they were marching through a dark
forest. I am suro you will bo as delighted
to read it as I was to listen to it.
"One day when we were marching
through a rather gloomy forest I was
surprised to see a poor, trembling con
federate soldier hiding In tho bushes
which grew thick on each side of our
path. He looked so pitiful a sight that I
felt sorry for him, so I did not tell the
rest of my comrades, for I knew that they
would be sure to hang him.
"But It happened that my companion
had also seen him, so after whispering to
him, for I could not talk out loud, I per
suaded Llm not to tell anybody.
"We marched on past the soldier, leav
ing him, thinking, perhaps, of the narrow
escnpo lie had had, and that we had no
eyes.

tho woods alone. They asked me what I
would do if I saw a benr. I said I would
get behind a tree and shoot hlni shoot
him three times In tho head, then I would
take him by the leg and come along home.
My brother said for me to take a gun
In the morning. I got up In the morning
and dressed. Then I got my gun ready
and started, "When I got to the woods I
found a path. I followed the path a little
ways, when to my surprise a bear Jumped
out from behind the bushes. I dropped
my gun and began to run Just as hard as
1 could. When I got near home I stopped
and looked behind mo nnd saw my
brother carrying a bearskin In his hand,
laughing as hard as ho could. 'When wo
got home he was laughing so hard that
he could hardly tell the folks. That was
the lust time I told how I would kill a
bear.

"Henry, what book is thut you have
In your hand?" asked Mrs. Thomas,
Henry's mother.
"It Is the Bible, mother." answered
Henry.
"Oh, no; It cannot be, surely!" ex
claimed Mrs. Thomas,
"Why, yes It is see."
"And my little boy to treat so roughly
tho book contalnlnng God's holy word!"
Henry's face grew serious.
"Oh, I forgot." ho said, and laid the
book carefully away,
"Try and not forget again, my son.
If you treat this book so lightly now,
when you become a man you may as
lightly esteem Its holy truths, and then
you could never live In heaven with the
angels. No one goes to heaven who doeB
not love and reverence the word of God,
which Is holy In every Jot and tittle."

them came a big crowd, who we soon
found out were a posse after them. At

Margaret: You can overcome the life
less, "stringy," brittle condition of your
hair nnd make It soft, brilliant nnd lux
urious again by the lire of this simple
quinine tonic: Get one ounce of qulnzoln
from your druggist, dliaolve In half.plnt
alcohol, add Vi pint water. Vigorous
scalp massage with this tonic vll stimu
late roots and tisanes to healthy action,
overcomes dundruff, otllneis und Irrita

or, gloss und life.
Muld: Get a small, original package
of pyroxln and apply somo occasionally
ut lash-roots with thumb and fore-finger.
This makes short, straight eye
lashes grow long and curly. Rubbing
pyroxln on eyebrows with forefinger will
cause them to come In thick and beauti

Grace M.: I know you will like dela
tone for removing superfluous hairs,
With a little water make enough paste
to cover the hairs; let remain two or
three minutes, then rub off, wash the
skin and every truce of hair will have
vanished. This Is an inexpensive, pain
less way to remove Imlr or fuzz and no
harm results from Its use.
Irene: Impurities In the blood cause
the condition of which you speak and
until this Is corrected you can hope for
no relltf. An economical old fashioned
tonlo end svstem regulator can be made
at home by dissolving ouo ounce of kur
deno In u half-pint alcohol, then adding
u half-rup sugar und enough hot water
to make a quart. A tablespoonful before
each meal soon rids the blood of poison
ous accumulations and gives you strength
and energy. When 1ho blood Is cleansed
of Impurities the skin becomes clear and
the complexion takes on a healthy tint.
Mlsi G. : No, I would not' use paint of
any make. Rouge and powder only cover
defect -a spunnax lotion removes them,
tones the skin, permits the pores to
