Not lonjf ago tho wadding reporter
wan suddenly called out of the olllco,
aud luf t In the middle of the tablo sev

description of a fashionable wedding.
These shoots were gathered up by tho
live-stock writer when ho finished bis
report, and tho two stories became
mixed. This is what the lentous care
of a proof-reader, later in tho evening,
saved from reaching the public eye:
"The church was ellirUdy decor
ated with holly and evergreen ami the
nlUtr was bidden In a wealth of lloner.
Out of the rcoosse rose rare tropical
planu, and from the colling hung tit
U'eu Wustern veals, which al thin timo
of year are scarce and correspondingly
dear at fl to S' cents per pound. There
was utso an active demand for choice
lamb, and farmers east of tbo .Missis
siptd river can profluJily turn to shp
raising and take the bride, who wore ft
KuMh of while corded silk, a creation of
Worth's, with pearl ornaments.
"Then came the maid of honor, tho
onusin of tho bride, ills Henrietta
Hlower, of Chicago, wearing a dress of
while tulle with diamond ornaments,
nnd she was followed by u small bunch
of Montana sheep, which bleated most
pltuously as they were driven on board
and shipped to the winter hotel in Her
luuda. They will there ho cut en train
and slightly dooolloio, and after tho rest
of tho party had rtmohod the Mil tbo
minister turned and said Impressively:
'I can not bid more than a cent fur
Htato veals, but cablegrams from lon
iloii quote refrigerated beef at a price
that will euab'.o me to pay Sl.UU for a
car of choioo Indian beeves, and hear

the arms of her father, who Is known to
bear a striking resemblance lo-aCon-noclictox

market hero took an upward turn, and
the guests, who numltered about two

A form of practical Inauranco against
want i under advisement 111 this city,
tn which a large portion of tho laboring
people should be deeply Interested, 'says
the Ilot.m Herald. A working-man is
often thrown out of employment and re
duted to great distress because helms
little or no money laid by, and Is un
able to provide fur hi board aud lodg
ing while out of employment. It ha
been suggested that a pcoplu's mercan
tile company might lie formed among
themselves which would undertake to
provide IsMird and lodging with land
lords at the rate of l, V or W a week,
on such term that, after one mouth ol
regular payment, ono week's Uianl al
half pay might he placed to tho credit
of the Interested party, to that if ho
wcrcout of work or sick, or otherwise I
dlnabled. he tnlghl not bo brought to I
UlM'.uiilort Itecauso he could not pay his '
board. Al this rate In slur months n j
man would bo entitled to one and a half ;
mouths' credit for hoard, and In oue year
to thri-o months' credit fur board, which,
at half rate, would only cost hltn the
price of one and a half months' board
This plan, if It could be carrleu out,
would bo a great relief to hundreds of
working Mopb' who are suddenly disa
bled or compelled to be Idle. It would
lie impos-dhlc furanyliody to fall rapidly
in debt to such a comuy, and only
In cum.' of extreme misfortune
would persons bo willing Ui sur
render their certain Insurance of
f.Hid aud lodging, which would grow
larrer as the year rolled by. A com
pany uf thi kind would need to
liavo a roiHmsmio nacaiqg in on or vo t
secure public confidence, but though It '
baa never l i-i u attempted, It oould j
easily be conducted on the baal which j
is common to similar undertakings,
l'a.ymeiita would bo u.nle to landlord ;
tbe same a now, and the company, ,
after collecting twenty per cent, dis
count every week fur a month, could af
ford to give one week's orodit and do
business on thai basis. The credit
would not bo transferable except by
connt uf the company of directors,
and would be doall with by thorn in the
same iiianuer as if they were a lifo In-'
surame policy. When such a company
wis established Its rnuge uf restaurant
or lodging and boardliig-houaoN would !
be uch as 10 moot the want of all ,
cloMiaea uf Msiple. Thl Is a system of
co-oporattvo elfort, but it would bo a '
ouni.iny that could accumulate capluil
and Increawi its resources In proper- ,
tlun to it membership. It would thu'
be a ttf Investment fur Individual
without involving thuin In any personal 1
responsibility beyond what their regular
IHtyments would demand.
This organisation is not yet lu exist

suggeslions fur self-help whioh has
sprung out of tbo movement far Chris

a lesson from thi palhetiu ttictdeut,
narrntisl In the Home Magaxlne:
1 was of washing dishes; I was
tinsl of drudgery. I had always been
so, and I was dtaatlstbl. 1 never sal
down a moment to read thai Jamie
didn't want a cake, or a bit of paper to
scribble on, or a bit of soap lo make
bubbles. "I d rather be In prison," I
ahl ono day, "thati have my life IobmsI
out so," as Jamie kuookisl my elbow
when I was writing to a friend.
llnl a moment eamo when I had ono
plate lea to wash, one chair less to set
away by the wall In the dining-room;
when Jamie's little crib wa put .iway
lit.i the garret, and it has neter ouie
down since. I had boon unusually fret
ful nnd discontented with him thai
damp May morning that he look thi
croup, tiloomy weather gave mo the
headache, ami I bad loss patten ' then
than at any other time. Hy ami by ho
was singing In another room:
1 waal to 1m a turn I,
and presently rang out that metallic
croup cough. I never hear tlia'hinin
since that It doesn't cut me to the heart,
for the croup cough ring out with It.
lie grew worse toward night, when my
husband came homo and went for a
doctor. At ttrst he seemed to le lp him,
but II merged Into intlamumtory croup,
nnd was soon over,
"1 ought to havo been called sooner,"
aald the doctor.

and when a visitor comes I etui sit down
and entertain her without Imviiig lo

for the curls that brushed a'ulnt eiy

out with mine as we watched the hissing
coal tire or inndo rabbits with the t,hd

llio wealth and ease I once lunged for. but

Mr, l.eland Stanford, lunti Interview
In the San I'mm-lsoo Chronicle, give
many facts hitherto imprinted In regard
hi plans for the new university at VtAa
Alto. She any the same attention will
be given lo girls as to hoy, and it Is her
purpose to have an art training-school,
like the ( is.j-r Institute, where girl
who have a taste for designing may fto
cure Instruction that will enable them
to earn ag-ssl living. If they then wish
to study higher art they w 111 lmn Uieoiu
to support theinselis. The ohlef aim
will lm Ui ground tbe student lu olo
mwnUiry studios, and then to give thoiu
some practical training by which Umy
may eas.lj support tliemsidveH. If then
they desire higher training ll will lm
freely given, but the whole spirit uf tho
Institution will ln against merely orna
mental education. Toiiini Mrs, .Stan
ford's won It un this ilnt:
"I think It nWiiitcly cruol to give, a
young man or woman who 111111 depend
iikhi their own overturns for a liveli
hood a classical islucatlon pure mid sim
ple. There Is scarcely a week that Mr.
Stanford Is not asked to give employ
ment to graduates of Yale and Harvard.
He ha six of thom as oar-conductor on

It Is no disgrace to them and they will
not remain long, but It Is pitiful to wlt

When asked whether any plana bad
been devlmxl fr the association (it thu
aexos she aald: "Yes, In leesl. Cot
