In fact, a jUerson was thought very

"One Sunday morning in early au
tumn .Puritan woman, whose repu-
. totion.: for: housekeeping, spinning
and church attendance- was excel
lent, was . belated in her morning
work. She took her long necked
pitcher and went to the pasture
where her cow was waiting to be
nulSed. This duty done, she found
for she could see people on the
Toad that she hadn't time even to
carry the milk back to the house and
get to church in season. So she took
lier long 'necked pitcher along with
h and sat in the gallery right near
where the singers and bass viols
were displayed. After the singing
wasovenand the long sermon had be-Igun-eermons
were an hour or two
long in those days she grew sleepy.
, ' 'Her long necked pitcher sat on the
floor near by and near fhe front of
the gallery. She was soon oblivious
of either milk, sermon or a dog that
came pitpatering up the gallery
BtairA The milk soon attracted the
dog. He smelled and wagged his
jtail, then smelled and wagged again,
then looked mqiiiringly at the uncon
scious milkmaid. He made up his
mind very soon, and into the lone
neck went the dog's head, neck too.
He couldn't get much milk and
wanted to pull back and try again.
"But he couldn't. His head was
wedged fast in. He pulled and used
his paws and tried to back away.
Blinded of course by the pitcher, his
steps were erratic, and suddenly to
the astonished people below there
appeared a sudden parting of the
balcony curtain, an almost blood
curdling yell was heard, and there
was a flash and downpouring, straight
in among the four unconscious dea
conb in the deacons' pew beneath, of
snow white milk, long necked pitch
er and a milk soaked, frightened dog.
"For once there was a great awak
ening in that church, but the poor
woman was frightened nearly out of
her wits, and the superstitious dea
cons weregreatly scandalized."
The BraTery of Women.
Whether "they are recognized as
more than a passive force, women
have played an active port in his
tory and have shown resource in
emergency, presence of mind in
peril, and invincible determination
in the face of seemingly hopeless ob
stacles. They have not degenerated. On
the contrary, with the opportunity
of the present, its broad training, its
liberal education, they are more
ready now for active duty than ever
Never before hag the state had in
reserve such a force of intelligent,
steady nerved, well disciplined wom
en. Whatever crisis may call it into
action, this reserve is ready, and is
any and every emergency it will not
be found unprepared or reluctant to
do its part with heart, brain and
mind. Chicago Inter Ocean.
.Coloring Food Product.
Sausages both meat and skin ore
dyed with aniline colors for the pur
pose of hiding the color of unhealthy
or Btale meat which may have been
used. Jams, especially plum jams,
are generally dyed with aniline col
ors, and sugar confectionery is hardly
ever without such artificial dye. Ale
is darkened with burned sugar, as
also are brandies and whiskies.
It must be admitted that in by far
the majority of these cases the color
used is entirely harmless and has no
influence on the health of the con
sumer. Yet there are a number of
aniline colors which are positively
poisonous even when pure. Such
colors are picric acid and its salts,
martius yellow, safranine, methvien
blue, dinitrocresol and aurantia. I
Others, unobjectionable in them
selves, become poisonous owing to
their mode of manufacture, which
leaves in the product poisonous im
purities, Buch as arsenic (rarely),
salts of copper, tin or zinc. The man
ufacturer of sausages or jams has
not the least idea whether the color
he usee may not belong to one or
other of the above, to which doubt
less many others could lie added, and
even if the quality of color consumed
by one individual may be exceedingly
small it is palpably evident that no
such manufacturer should have the
right to use such colors. Drugs, Food
Showing a Faee.
As a rule, the man who rides on a
free pass does not seriously object to
showing it, but he does hate to be
annoyed and suspected by the con

four times between Baltimore and

must stand the loss. Yours seems to
be all right, and we shall not worry

Attention Paid to Walking.
It is enough to imagine the un
feigned amazement of a dame of the
old school if the proper position of
the feet in walking were made a
matter of doubt For years the
dancing master's standard in all
matters of carriage and walk has
been an unquestioned one. The fin
de giecle young woman, however,
has a mind of her own. She has not
found that the conventional train
ing of the dancing master, valuable
as it undoubtedly is, was all suffi
cient in producing that grace of car
riage and elegance of manner so de
sirable in the woman of the world.
On the contrary, she has found
that the physical training of the
woman of the stage has been more
often conducive to the desired end.
Hence it is that schools of Delsarte
have sprung up all over the land,
and systems of physical training, in-:

For a quarter of a century I have
been hoping that the principles of
hypnotism as now developed might
be applied so as to bring relief to pa

with pleasure that I am able today to
report a pronounced success in that di

continue, and the methods will be so
formulated that the art will be with
in the reach of every intelligent op

that it was the opinion of writers on
hypnotism that pain would always
wake a patient from the hypnotic
sleep unless such patient was in a
somnambulistic condition. I felt it
might be quite possible to derive dis

they could be kept continuous. I

Smoke and Cold Wether.
There can be no doubt that the
smoke blanket modifies the tempera

new in the fact, Gilbert White of
Eelbome, who died 100 years ago,

raise the mercury 10 degrees, and a

The Habit of Migrating.
The treat authorities state that the
habit of migrating is due to the fact
that at the time qf the great clima,tlc
change whereby the northern portion
of the globe became the frigid place
it is now the birds inhabiting the ex
treme north were forced southward,
and, further, that in the change of
seasons, when in summer the north
furnishes them the conditions of life
they have gradually formed, the
habit of resorting thither. ' This ex
planation souudB plausible, but there
are some questions which it fails to
answer. For instance, how do the
birds forecast a change of Beanon so
that their flight southward is begun
in time to escape the storms of
winter? And by what messenger are
they informed in the spring that the
time has come when they can with
safety return to their northern breed
The latter question receives a hy
pothetical answer in the assertion
that, as most migratory birds breed
in the northern limit of their flight,
it is the sexual instinct which Bonds
them north and the statement is
supported by the fact that the male
birds of some species usually precede
the females and as the sexual in
stinct is always stronger in the male
there seems some reuson in this the
ory. But not all birds are migratory.

Condition of Indian Parian.
The condition of the unfortunate

the attention of philanthropic per

investigations undertaken by the mis

with a peremptory official denial of

proposals to be "utterly impractica

knowledge of the unhappy victims
of caste prejudice declare that they
are oppressed by a system which can
