our earthly life, but not in individual form. The animating prin

grown personalities, achieved individualities which are immortal.
Each of us has a larger self, a part of the universal spirit, which
is only partially incarnate in our earthly bodies.
AH of which is interesting, but as it is based almost entirely
upon communications received through mediums, and mediums
are generally contemptible frauds, realizing their results from me-
chanical contrivances, and making an easy living by preying
OYPOnn upon sympathies of the sorrowing, it is not very convincing.

the exposure of Palladmo. Mr. Kinn has made a hobby of ex
posing so-called supernatural phenomina and has presented a

MARRIED STATE HOUSE CLERKS
One of labor's uplifters has been snooping around the state
house to ascertain the names of married women employed whose
husbands are able to support them, with the object of having
the labor council petition for their discharge and replacement by
unmarried girls and women with dependents.
In normal times, when there are more women than jobs, there
can be no objection to the adoption of such a policy by the state,
but at the present time there are not efficient women enough for
the jobs and the enforcement of such a provision would work
against efficiency. Most of these women are emergency em
ployes, for the single woman is preferred to the married by most
There has been, in all lines of industry, a loss of morale among
workers since the war, a decreaase in output, and a fallling off
in efficiency. The average employe is interested only in the
clock, the pay check, and the ways and means of the spending
thereof. Never was work so plentiful and workers less produc
tiveand girls are no exception to the rule. Hence the drafting
of trained and efficient workers, even though married.
Efficiency is always in demand. The person with interest
enough in his or her work to increase capacity and originality
enough to improve methods, has the gates of opportunity opened.
Failure is usually due to the individual's failure to grasp the
first essentials of success.

New York, Feb. 2:1. For the first
time since the West 123d Htreet po
nce station was opened eight years
ugo, n period of 24 hours passed,
ending at midnight last night with
cut ti single entry being made tin the
blotter. Ordinarily the precinct Is
mi of the busiest in New York and
iv the he.nluunrlers of an inspector
and staff of detectives.
When Jimpson died (we miss him vastly, whose face we ne'er
again shall see!) we made his funeral more ghastly than any hu
man rite should be. The pastor's talk was long and dismal, and
fraught with morals stale and trite ; he spoke about the void
abysmal, more than he spoke of morning light. And while the
clergyman was droning, and filling all our souls with dread, a lot
of alecks kept on moaning as though they hoped to raise the dead.
And then the choir sang dreary dirges, in voices wet with useless
tears, till we could hear the wailing surges of Death's cold river,
in our ears. No hope inspiring hymns they lilted, but dirges full
of maudlin whines, and women wept and strong men wilted, and
felt pink gdoseflesh down their spines. Oh, when I die, and folks
assemble, to see that I m planted right, let no man spiel, with
voice a-tremble, about my sins or virtues bright. What man may
say will cut no figure when I have met the common fate, and I
step up, with pep and vigor, to dodge old Peter at his gate. No,
let the urbane undertaker get busy, like a dead game sport, and
take me to the churchyard acre, with all the briny stuff cut short
length of the barn. It was through
that aisle that the men walked with
great forkfuls of hay in the winter
time, which they flung down before
the cows, who munched it content
edly. Eut it was summer now. And the
cows found their own food in the
pasture on the hillside. They came
to the barn only to be milked.
"It's milklng-time right now."
Jollv Robin remarked. "And pretty

about his shoulders and around his

the house. "Now, you'll have to ad
