WOMAN’S SUMMER REST.
ITS IMPORTANCE IS FULLY RECOG
Olive Thorne Miller Tells How You May
Accomplish It with Small Expenditure
of Money—Camping Out in a Farm
house Is a Good Way.
(Copyright, 1891, by American Press Assocla-
The important things—the indispensa
bles—are: First, to leave home burdens
at home and carry no worries to lie
awake over; secondly, to select a com
pany that will be as harmonious as possi
ble; and thirdly, to go with mind made
up to “put up” with other people's ways
and not be annoyed by them. The party
should expect to live plainly, and to give
up their own whims.
It is most successful when each mem
ber has a hobby to fill her days with
pleasure; one may be a botanist, another
a sketcher or photographer, a third a
student of insects or birds; one may be
“devoted” to needlework—fancy or plain
—and another to books. Each one
should provide ample material for her
individual idiosyncrasy and bo prepared
to show the broadest toleration for all
the others, and health and happiness
will be the sure result.
I have seen this plan carried out, even
to the extent of doing all their own cook
ing, by a party of young girls during
their school vacation. They were New
England village girls accustomed to help
themselves, and they took a farmhouse
with nothing but an old cooking stove in
it, half a mile from a neighbor. With
almost no baggage they made the houso
habitable, and they had “glorious times”
for two weeks.
One of the valuable results of this sort
of an outing is the forbearance it culti
vates in us. It is natural, from the soli
tary lives we have led—each one mistress
within her own four walls—that we
should be somewhat intolerant of other
people’s ways. We are apt to be per
fectly sure that our way is the very best,
and to be surprised that others do not
see it in the same way. Anything we
can do, my sisters, to uproot this poison
ous weed in our hearts, to teach us a
wide liberality and tolerance, and to
show us the infinitesimal unimportance
of a thousand and one little points we
have been wont to consider of moment,
is of the greatest possible advantage to
us, and is the lesson we need above all.
The reward is great, for the conquer
ing of this lingering narrowness opens to
us a new world of happiness of which
we never dreamed.

for the rest that
everybody in our
rushing and hur
rying life must
have. A mother
need no longer
drag her burden
of cares and re
sponsibilities like a trail after her when
a change of scene becomes imperative to
her mental and physical health, for the
importance of a rest from care is coming
to be recognized. Moreover, ways of
pleasant and profitable outings are more
and more opening to her.
Our brothers have long found it con
ducive to their health and happiness to
join a party of fishermen or hunters or
travelers, and spend a few days or weeks
in the mountains or elsewhere. We are
beginning at last to take the hint, and
to find that a week away from our wor
ries is worth six weeks with them as a
restorative. X do not say, of course, that
all mothers of families would find this
practicable, but hundreds could carry it
out perfectly well if they only under
stand how to manage it.

often fatal gift of beauty, wished to

In New York has been established in
the last year or two something for which
there is room in all the largest cities of
tho Union. An enterprising, accom
plished woman, Mrs. Annie C. Hardy,
has founded a Ladies’ Guide and Vis
itors’ bureau in the metropolis. Wom
en who aro strangers in New York can
arrive in the city any time of night or
day, and if notice has been previously
sent to the bureau a messenger there
from will meet the stranger at the sta
tion and conduct her to the woman’s ho
tel which is connected with the bureau,
or anywhere else she wishes. For a
moderate charge typewriters are found,
expert women guides and interpreters
are sent out shopping and sight seeing
with those who need them, escorts and
chaperons to theaters and other places
of amusement are furnished, and many
other things are done for women who
are unfamiliar with New York or for
busy women who wish to accomplish
the most in the least time. The bureau
also keeps a list of select boarding
houses and hotels, and directs strangers
to them. It is pleasant to record that
this enterprise, established by a woman
for women, is meeting with success.
Nothing more amusing has been laid
before the public in a long time than the
appeal of a number of self styled “Wom
en Remonstrants” agajnst having wom
an suffrage put upon them. They depre
cate the going out of women to tho
wage earning field, declaring in so many
words that women must in tho indus
tries “always compete with men and al
ways bo beaten.” It is true that in their
peculiar line no man can compare with
the women whose work it is to detect
counterfeit money in the departments
at Washington. It is also true that
women do the heaviest and most respon
sible figtiring in the bureaus of statistics
in Sweden and Norway, and that the
Norwegian minister of finance employs
only women mathematicians. It is also
true that a woman, Cynthia Westover,
secretary in the street commissioner’s
office in New York city, is the mathe
matician and statistician for a depart
ment that employs 2,000 laborers, and
that she has so organized the office work
that it never ran 60 smoothly as it
does now. But facts are nothing to
these persons who assert out of their
own heads that women must always be
beaten in competition with men in the
industrial walks. In truth, the solicitude
of these mysterious and sly “remon
strants” about breaking up of home and
the cruelty of forcing weak women to
compete with strong and godlike men is
something touching. But now let me
tell you the funny part. It is beginning
to leak out slowly and delightfully that
it is men themselves and nobody else
who are behind this movement of re
monstrance against women. It is they
who have so wrought on the sympathies
of the women nearest them as to induce
these ladies to stand as a shield between
their masculine timidity and the public
and remonstrato against woman suf
frage. It is men themselves who are be
hind this antiwoman movement, there
fore, men who fear the competition of
women, undoubtedly with good reason
too. So let us pity these poor little men,
even while we laugh at the huge joke of
it. Sly Joey B’s!

If there is anything in this great and

Fate of the “Ark of the Covenant.’*
The Work of the Salvation Army.
IS IT THE
ODDS AND ENDS.
It will probably never be known what
became of the ark of tho covenant at the
time of the destruction and plunder of the
temple. Even conjectures concerning it
are altogether useless. Some say that it
was taken away and destroyed by Nebu
chadnezzar. The Jews believe that it was
miraculously concealed from the spoilers,
and account it among the hidden things
which the Messiah is to reveal. It is ad
mitted, however, from an examination of
all Jewish writers, that the old ark was
never in the second temple, and there is no
evidence on record to show that a new one
It is generally understood that the ab
sence of the ark was one of the important
particulars in which the second temple
was regarded as inferior to that of Solo
mon. Josephus states that “the most holy
place” was vacant in the second temple
certain rabbinical writers assert that its
place was simply marked by a stone. The
fact that Ezra, Nehemiah and the Macca
bees frequently mention the other sacred
utensils, but never refer to the ark, seems
to be an acknowledgment on their part
that they knew nothing of the great me
morial of the covenant.—St. Louis Repub
Judge J. 5V. Perry, the well known
Owen county politician, tells me the fol
lowing story of a wonderful cave that has
been found on his land in Morgan county.
It has only been explored a short distance,
but to judge from the indications it must
be miles in extent. The cave was found in
a manner worth relating. A party of fox
hunters were pursuing a quarry which
their hounds had sprung when they sud
denly came upon a high ledge. At the mo
ment of arrriving at this point the baying
of the hounds was distinctly audible, the
hunters not far behind. Suddenly the mu
sic of the dogs ceased.
It did not die away by degrees, but
stopped suddenly, as if each loud piouthed
animal had been struck by soqie invisible
force and forever quieted. The hunters
were at a loss to account for this phenome
non. While wondering what became of
the dogs a belated hound that had been
unable to keep up with the pack came up,
and, running below the ledge, set up a
howl of disappointment, and the hunters
climbed down to where the dog had
stopped, only to see him disappear into the
side of the mountain through a large, ir
Procuring torches of pine knots, the
hunters hastily followed the dog. They
had not gone more than 100 feet until they
entered a large chamber with vaulted
dome. Every inch of space on the walls
and roof was covered with minute crystals
that sparkled like millions of diamonds
when the light of the torches flashed upon
The men hurried on, however, trying to
overtake their dogs, that they could now
hear faintly baying within the bowls of
the earth. After going about two miles
through beautiful rooms and lofty arches
and failing to come upon the hounds, the
weary hunters had to retrace their steps,
owing to their hastily improvised torches
being nearly burned out. The dogs camo
home the next day.
A few days after its discovery Judge
Perry visited the cave and explored it a
short distance. He describes it as one of
the most wonderful caves he ever saw. In
one of the rooms there is a stone wall, 70
yards long, 4 feet high and 4 feet thick. It
is built of limestone rock of a kind not
found in the cave nor anywhere near it.
The judge is at a loss to account for the
presence of this wall, especially as it is
cemented together with a cement as strong
as the rock itself.
Many peoplo who have seen the cave and
the artificial wall are inclined to think
this is the famous Swift cave, where that
worthy mined and coined silver a hundred
years ago. If this should prove correct
the judge will be a millionaire, as Swift’s
cave was known to be one of the richest
silver mines ever opened.—Cor. Louisville

Seeiug the announcement of a new book
by Mary E. Denison reminds me of this
author’s two wonderfully successful books,
“That Husband of Mine” and “That Wife
of Mine.” The story of these books was
recently told me by the publisher. When
Miss Denison, a number of years ago,
brought the manuscript of “That Husband
of Mine” to her publishers they accepted it
doubtfully, and did not feel warranted in
printing more than 500 copies for a first
edition. This was all they expected to
print at all, for they did not detect the ele
ments of popularity in it. What was their
surprise, then, to receive orders amount
ing to 2,000 copies on the day of publica
This warned them to begin printing a
14fge supply, but the orders poured in so
fSBt that for three weeks they were many
thousand copies behind the demand. The
orders received on a single day amounted
once to 14,000 copies and the total sales of
the book reached in the end 150,000 copies.
“That Wife of Mine,” published not long
after, did not reach the same figure, but
the sale amounted to 70,COO copies, 60,000 of
which were ordered in advance. Her other
books have none of them obtained the same
success, though they have all been widely
read. But Miss Denison’s pen has brought
her gold, and her publishers as will.—Ed

Eccentricities of Ministers.
Blood vengeance is a sacred law with the
Quianganes. If one plebeian is killed by
another the matter is settled in a simple
manner by killing tho murderer or some
one of his family who is likewise a plebe
ian. But if a prominent man or noble is
killed by a plebeian vengeance on the mur
derer, a mere plebeian, is not enough; the
victim of the sin offering must be an
equivalent In rank.
Another nobleman must fall for the mur
dered noble, for their doctrine is, What
kind of an equivalent is it to kill some one
who is no better than a dog? Hence the
family of the slain noble looks around to
seo if it cannot find a relative of the mur
derer to wreak vengeance upon who is also
a noble, while the murderer himself is ig
nored. If no noble can be found among
his relatives the family of the murdered
man wait patiently till some one of them is
received into the noble’s caste; then the
vendetta is prosecuted, although many

Dr. Fisher, of Salem, had a singular way
of satisfying his conscience. He was asked
how he could read the Athanasian creed
when he did not believe it. He replied, “I
read it as if I did not believe it.” Mr.
Pyle, being directed by his bishop to read
It, did so, saying, "I am directed to read
this, Which Is said to have been the creed
