    Better to weave In the web of life A Bright and golden Ailing And to do Gods will with a ready heart And hands that are swift and willing Than to snap the delicate tender thread Offour curious lives asunder And then to blame heaven for the tangled end And sit and grieve and wonder Anon

    IN BRIEF In a town so interlaced with railways as

    this one can hardly be ignorant of the im- portance

    ¬

    of sufficient ballasting to maintain the rood condition of tracks in order to in- sure

    ¬

    the safety of the trains as it is a mat ier of daily observation that the roads are regularly inspected and loads of gravel used in the repairing

    Many life lessons lie along the railways and may be picked up with profit In fact comfort in life is much like the smooth run- ning

    ¬

    train the axles are oiled the track level and smooth switches are plenty and the grooved wheels fitted to rails fixed in parallel lines from which any deflection would mean ruin

    It is much the fashion of the world to steer at the worker in grooves and to com- mend

    ¬

    the parabola as better than the right line perhaps it would be a painfully pre- cise

    ¬

    world without the eccentric but the woi d is not likely to suffer lack and the individual is now being considered So long as this rounded sphere exists there will be young people and the restlessness and fire of youth will chafe and burn them sufficiently to force them out of the beaten tracks Until thirty waste of energy is largely supplied from the fountain of youth and the vital forces do not suffer but after that age worry not only wears but kills and ere that time the track should be laid and tho rivers bed so chanelcd that life would move easily upon a settled track or flow gently along between quiet grassbor- dered

    ¬

    banks While this need of evenness in life applies

    to all persons it is of especial importance to women that worry be avoided and that their lives after the heyday of youth is passed be sptlrt in quiet regularity

    A word of caution is appropriate at a season when so many are leaving home for the summer too often exchanging largo airy rooms for stuffy apartments and wholesome food for a class of cookery that can not be conducive to health In going away as well as in staying at home worry late hours irregularities of any kind should be avoided as much as is possible It is worry and dissipation that make tho crow- foot

    ¬

    and every wrinkle is the work of the fin or of care which often might have been turned aside A writer recently said that it was not so much work as holidays that made people grow old it was vauity ambi- tion

    ¬

    an inordinate desire to shine with the worry attendant that marred tho visage and sapped tho energy Because of tho restlessness these beget people wear out faster from eighteen to thirtyfive than afterward In youth they chafe at hamper- ing

    ¬

    conditions refuse to work in grooves and often at the end find themselves losers because of their impatience and of their de- parture

    ¬

    from tho rectilinear The comfort- able

    ¬

    stage is reached when one has found a rut and is willing to work in it when bring- ing

    ¬

    cheerfulness to every task one has coine to realize what vanity and vexation of spirit lie outside the beaten track Tho attainment of this feelinc may- be an announcement that age is upon us but may it not be as well an indication of relief from the worry fever and unrest of- j outh an avowal that we are not rebels against fate and are not seeking diversion and excitement but accept in a genuine spirit of philosophy what each day brings peaceful and content even though only peace and contentment are our portion It is true that it was tho old lady who said to young Anne Bullen Sweetnessof contentis our best having yet had young Anno pos- sessed

    ¬

    the virtue thus extollod her pretty head had not been rolled into the execu- tioners

    ¬

    basket Tho life that flows evenly tho smooth running track may not satisfy ambition but are certainly conducive to long life to peaceful enjoyment and to the perpetuation of personal beauty a posses- sion

    all women strive to retain

    Carlyle was a rugged Scotchman and more of a dissccter than a surgeon yet his sharp utterances have sometimes a keen- ness

    that converts them into manysided weapons For examplo when he teaches that enlightenment should be identical with enlargement that when the mind escapes from the prison house of cant it should be- come more tenderly respectful of the pre- Judices of others It is the doctrine Paul taught when he though wiser than a weak Christian refused to eat the meat offered to idols lost he offend his brother It is- in good taste and in conformity with tho everlasting law of kindness that the sensi- bilities

    ¬

    of Christian neighbors should not be wounded in the playing of secular music or indulging of noisy games on Sun- day

    ¬

    Good form is a strong argument with many and up to tho present time good form discountenances such violation of what may bo by some characterized as straitlaced requirements It is also true that young men who sneer at a refusal to engage in games or to play dance music be- cause

    it is Sunday will grow to respect the girl who so refuses cither from regard to- tho prejudices of others or from her own convictions of right for however lax a man may be in his views ho can never fall so low as not to regard most highly noble qualities in a young woman

    The question has been projected who was the greatest woman that ever lived The question is too comprehensive There is a wide difference between cruel Catherine IL- of Russia who killed to suit her mood and Florence Nightingale who saved life and relieved suffering whenever it was possi- ble

    ¬

    If greatness and goodness were in- terchangeable

    ¬

    terms there would bo less dif- ficulty

    ¬

    but if to make history to leave their mark and to mould destinies are being great the laurel must as often rest upon the head of a courtesan as a philanthropist in a world where goodness is not always allied to minds whieh control and direct human affairs

    By a pedometer it has been ascertained that the ballroom belle in the course of- twentytwo dances covers the distanco of thirteen and a half miles Few of the belles would or perhaps could walk half this dis- tance

    is a pleasing change from the somewhat universal Greek mode of hair dressing which has been fashionable for some time It is arranged with a fringe or frizzed front with wavy hair rippling over the top of the head and a catogan at the back

    Fig 3 is an improved Greek coiffure the marteaox curls extending just to the nape of the neck following the tendency of fashion for the presentseasou The shape being narrow is neat and effective
