Sunday Is England.
Few people are aware bow strict
Sabbath is still legally ordained Id
England. The Lord's day observance
act forbids not only Sunday trading,
but also every possible occupation
walking, riding, rowing or any game
and strictly enjoins upon all subjects
over nine years of age attendance at
church. At the opening of every as
size the royal proclamation for the
preservation of morality is read. Feo
ple who are then present for the first
time are astonished to hear that the
monarch forbids and calls upon the
magistrates to punish absence from di
vine service on Sundays, any playing
of cards or other games of chance or
haunting of.public houses oil the same
day. Everybody found in an inn dur
ing service hours is liable to a line of
SO cents, the landlord to a penalty of
$2.40, and for a successful prosecution
church wardens are entitled to a re
ward of $10. As recently as 1804 Isaac
Walton, a manservant., was fined $J.80
for refusing to attend church on Sun
day when ordered there by Ids mis
tress. About the same time a mother
was prosecuted b.v her son and actual
ly imprisoned for not attending church.
Don't Di It "JuHt For Now."
Many young people form habits
which cripple and handicap them for
life by doing things "just for now."
They let things drop wherever they
happen to be "just for now," thinking
.that they will put the book, the tool,
the letter or the article of clothing lat
er where It belongs. When these young
people grow up to hauhood and wom
anhood, they find that the habit of
putting things down anywhere "just
for now" has become a tyrant that fills
their lives with confusion and disor
der. It takes no more time or effort
to put a thing where it belongs in the
fi''st place than it does later, perhaps
less, and the chances are that If you
do not do so at the proper time you
never will. Even if it costs you a lit-1
tie inconvenience at the moment to
put everything in its proper place, to
do everything at the proper time, the
orderly and methodical habits which
you cultivate in this way will Increase
your power and usefulness a hundred
fold and may save you much trouble
and mortification in the future. Suc

to tie together with a thread three or ,

wings do not act symmetrically in the

After a week of little journeys, strik
ing here and there a few miles to ab
sorb the Yosemite valley from a dozen
coignes of vantage, we were whipping
the Illilouette one afternoon for moun
tain trout, says the World's Work.

But I was there to see. The water,

and the spray burgeoned out far up
the other slope. The roar was deafen
ing. All at once the wind shifted, the
water swung back, and 'in a flash the
human figure was blotted out In a del
uge that turned me sick. For a sec
ondthat seemed an hour it played
on the spot fiendishly, it seemed to
me, standing horrified there, and then
slowly it swept away.
And then there was a movement, a
painful, crawling movement, down there
on the slopy. and I scrambled down the
slippery rocks to help a blinking, creep
ing, much surprised youth, bleeding
from a hundred cuts, up to where his
clothes lay. He was still too dazed to
speak. When his breath returned and
his extra glasses were perched again
on his nose, he said:
"The oceans fell upon me! For God's
sake, come back to New England!"
And we went.
