Children Mart Sleep.
There is nothing that little folks
need to much or that helps their
physical development so largely a
plenty of sleep. Until they are 15
yean old they should have at least
10 Hours or nature s great restorer.
An authority on such matters says
that they never should be awakened,
but allowed to sleep until of their
own accord they are ready to get up.
School and household duties, how
ever, make such a course impracti
cable, but If they are put to bed
early enough they will be quite
ready to rise without calling at a rea
sonable hour. Bedtime can be made
pleasant by the telling of a story or
a few especially loving ministra
tions and caresses that will make
this hour a period to be anticipated
rather than dreaded. St Louis Re

add something to large streams and

so copious aa to be almost equal to a
small shower of rain. We often hear
dewdrops falling from the overloaded
leaves and find all exposed objects aa

this moisture must get into the mi

duct it to mill streams.

The feast of St Barbara, like that
of 8t Martin, ia a soldiers' fete in
Italy. The heroio jrlrL if we mar
believe an old story of the tenth cen
tury, waa an angel of beauty and vir
tue, born in a fortress where her
father, Dioeooro, was the governor
and also aid-decamp to the emperor,
Maximilian. 8t Barbara first saw
the light in Italy in her father's beau
tiful villa near Scandriglia, a gift
from the emperor to his general, rich
with mineral waters, marvelous
plants, statues, etc, where she passed
the first few years of her life, and
whore she became a convert to the
Christian religion, ' , . , .
The-beautiful afrlwaa hunted to
death, taken prisoner, her breasts
were out off, and she waa exposed to
brutal soldiers, who took nnsnamlon
of her, fastened her to a stake, covered
ner witb quicklime and burned her
to death, and this she suffered rather
than renounce the religion aha had
embraced. This, at least, is the leg
end, and the artillery and the eagi-
tron, to whom thoy show much re

: Pur Flour aad Biaa. , ,
Those who mistake the flour of dirt
for a natural characteristic of flour
are not likely to be safe guides in
anything relating to flour. Unrefined
sugar is noted for its "flavor," but
the flavor is merely the dirt or extra
neous matter in the sugar. So it is
with unrefined flour. The stalk of
the wheat, is quite as digestible as
the bran and is quite similar in com
position. The bran faddists ought to
insist on smashing bran, awns and
stems all at once into meal Then
they would have a meal in which
nothing Is wasted exoept the con
sumer. The consumer should be
guided by experience. If bran Agrees
with him, he is right in eating it If
it disagrees with him, he is right in
refusing to eat it The moraliters
who are trying to make out that the
millers are doing a great wrong in
making pure flour have everything
against them nowadays. Milling
-' Whither the Wlndi Bore Him.
It is said of an old time Maine
preaoher, Father BkisdelL who was
the pioneer missionary along the
Maine coast that he would launch
his boat and sail before the wind, and
where the wind took him he would
land and preach. At one time, so
the story goes, the wind bore him di
rectly toward laleaboro. Just be
fore getting there, however, the wind
shifted, and although he waa within
a few rods of the land he turned his
boat and with the wind Bailed off to
another town, where he landed, held
meetings and started one of the
greatest revivals ever held under his
ministry. Rockland (Me.) urarier-

Management of the Spoon,
Use the spoon only to stir tea or
coffee i never use it to sip or drink
with. As soon as the liquid is stirred
place the Bpoon in the saucer and
leave it there during the remainder

sired, pass the cup with the spoon in
the saucer, not in the cup. Do not
