"Tho Country Boy with n Gardenia Over His Ilcart Will Long for a Dalgy Sure."
The man who was a country boy Bits sometimes with his fighting
chin sunk In his fine ehlrt front, when his perfect woman that ho won
seems specially to glitter cold and hard, when the stones that blaze on
her rose-tipped fingers, arms and hair seem, even more than usual, an
icy conflagration his eyes blinded and wearied by her splendor, his
feet weary of her tango teas, his heart tired of her shallow eyes and
perfect, gem-Hke finger-tips and gone a-yearnlng for homely things.
With all her gorgeous beauty weighing heavier than most days, in
tho back of his head that he lost over a lass who was not his simple
kind, growB the picture of tho girl who stood at his "country elbow"
and ho might have had!
And her eyes are wide open and unclouded and alio looks llko
wholesome things "cornbread and buttermilk" and fields of wheat
(that's her hair), with popples growing through (that's her Hps below
tho wind-ruffled hair) and he remembors that she hated to pick a
flower " 'cause It dies, you know," and she loved all live things and

An Heal Hotel with an Ideal Situation.
Home would savo you from this degrad
past winter a girl friend of mine was
Invited to a number of teas and dances
given by her wealthy relatives and
friends. At several of these affairs she
met Mr. K., of whose vealth ami Im
portance she was well awure. He was
always particularly pleasant to her, but
even when he escorted ner home she
never rewarded hi courtesy with an In
vitation to call. She felt that he would
cease liking her if he saw her In the
very humble environment of her simple
little home, since she was decidedly the
poor relation of her family. His mm
ner changed at last, and or. meeting her
at affairs ho did not iven oak )rr to
dance. Sho grlevod over it, but decided
that he preferred the wealthier, more
elegantly dressed girls to her simple lit
One Sunday afternoon early this spring
sho met him on the street and with a.
little constraint he ventured that he was
going her way and would like to walk
home with her. At the door they met
her brother, who suggested that It was
tea time and that "Bessie" was a famous
little cook, so Mr. K. had better come
In. Desslo had to second the Invitation,
and Mr. K. said he would be delighted
If ho might play butler to her maid.
Besslo Is to become Mrs. K. In Sep

All you little Katherines, won't you
entertain your boy friends at home? 1
am sure you wilt find that "Be It ever
so humble, there's no place like home."
Homes give you a background and a
protection and a domestic charm. It
enshrines you In the masculine heart
For tlnfel and gold may come and go,
but the masrul'ne desire and longing for
the spirit of home goes on forever.

whom history affords us nny knowledge?
It was wonderful to have lifted their
country from the bottom nf the sea, and
It was still more wonderful to have suet
cessfully defended that country's liberties
against the mighty power of Spain.
During the long struggle of Holland
against their would-lie destroyers Eng
lishmen went over from time to time to
help them In their fight, nnd the English
soldier v'ho came monarchists wtnt

always lovfd their liberties, and it was
from the sturdy burghers that the Eng

ish royalty Into what Ragchot would rail
a "mere ornament."
When Aha set up his Infamous "council
of blood" In the Netherlands more than
1CKMX4 llollundcis crossed the channel to
make their home In England. "These ,
men," a great historian writes, "were not
paupers seeking alms; they were Indus

bankers, manufacturers, merchants; all
of them froomen, refugees for freodom'n

history of the world was thern such an

Now. It was from those noble men that
the people of England learned to love
with a renewed real tho principles of
human liberty, and to detest with a new
strength the tinsel and red tape of aris
tocracy and royalty. From the southern
and eastern counties of England where
the Hollanders settled and Intermarried
with the English came the English coil
monwealth. From thnxo ountrlyj came
the "Ironsides," the "Bill of Rights," the
'Tree Parliament" and modern England.
The Pilgrims, It Is well known, lived In
Holland for twelve years before swttlng
out on their memorable vnyase to thi
new world, nnd it wa whltn dwelling
among the Dutchmen that thv learned

that he dratted lni his Pennsylvania
code the large and liberal principles of

Mils series, the founde of tho city of
Hartford, the autn?r of tho first t'on
nectlcui constitution, and the nrlfinutor
of practical democracy on this side i t the
ocean, wai an EnslNh refugee who came
direct from Holland tu tho new wirld,

which he was only tco anxious to put Into
practice In the Connecticut coloiy.
In what Is now the greut "Empire

free church and first free ochixil known
in the present l-'nlted Slate of America.
It Is generally concedod, ovsn by his
devoutest admirers, that 'Jovornor Peter
Stuyvesant had a will of Ills wn, tnd
was at times Inclined to ha pr'tty die-
torlal, and one day In 16&S, In a tilt with
tho peg-legged old governor, 'he nurl.h
ers of New Amsterdam told him light to
his fact that "all men own tholr ovn con
sciences"; and standing upon that prin
ciple as upon a rock, 'lny dotted the
testy governor and stood out until they
had secured the recognition of the idoa
that "all true government tecelvea Its
power and validity from the consmt of
the governed "
This action of the New Amsterdam
burghers came very near being 'the first
declaration of independence Issued upon
the continent of North America, Hooker's
sermon at Hartford In 1636 being actually
the first, and, as has been already shoWn,
Hooker got the Inspiration for his work
while living among the Dutchmen before
coming to America.
Among the makers of America, then,
w must under no circumstances forget
It was from Holland that England and
the rest of Europe, and by and by the
new world and the United Btatot of
America, got the Idea of the free public
school system: the representative Idea In
government; the principle of the abso
lute and everlasting separation of church
and state; freedom of the press and of
speech, and last but by no means least,
the broad mental hoipltallty which makes
persecution for opinion's soke Impossible.
Every one, therefore, who loves these
I things, and who understands how neces
sary they are to a progressive and up
lifting civilisation, should honor the
Dutchmen without stint or measure.
Great are their gifts to us, and great
should be our appreciation of what they
have given us.

A PIMPLY SKIN
Bridgeport. Conn.. June 1. 191I- "I suf
fered with pimples on my face for about
four years, which I thought I could never
cure, as I tried to heal them with ,
, , prescriptions, and many
other things, but they only got thicker.
They looked like small bolls and were
very sore after a while scabs and scales
formed on my face. They Itched awfully,
I tried Reslnol Ointment and Reslnol
Soap, which relieved after a few appli
cations, and I have no more pimples on
my face my skin Is now clear, I was so
glad that I at last found a cure for my
pimples, as my face looked a sight,"
