He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the trust of pure women and the love of little children ; w'ho has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found It, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who. has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express It; who has always looked for the beat in otliers and given the best he had t" whose life was an inspiration; whos^ memory a bMiedlctlon.—Bessie A.

SHE HAD NO PATIENCE LEFT
Wife's Stock of That Commodity Pretty Well Exhausted in Effort to Reform William.
A Chicago lawyer said at a banquet:
“Le*; me tell you a temperance story.
“A long, rangy woman said one day to a parson:
** ‘Parson, Bill was drunk again Saturday night.’
“But the parson answered in a soothing tone:
“ ‘Dear sister, if you would try being patient with William! Patience and forbearance’work miracles, and I have faith to believe that in dear William’s case it would be even so.’ “But the long, rangy woman shook her head,
“ ‘Looks to me,’ she said, ‘as If I’d tried patience and forbearance about long enough. Talkin’ of forbearance, don’t I go weeks at a time without speakln’ to the cuss, no matter what he asks me? Yes, hull weeks, but it don’t seem no good. Then, when it comes to patience, why, parson. I’ve locked him out of the house all night more oftener than I got fingers and toes, and time and again I’ve sewed him up in a sheet when he was full and walloped hhn with a rope till I Jest fair dropped with tiredness; and I’ve bolted him in the henhouse three days runnin’ in the patient hope he’d sign the pledge, but he wouldn’t; and Pve doused him all over with cold water on many a freezln’ winter’s night, and I’ve had him run in twice, and I’ve mixed vinegar with his booze so as to make him sick, and then waited with the patience of Job to see if he’d repent when he came round, but, pai'son, nothin’ done no good. No siree, it’ll take more than patience and forbearance to straighten that man out.”
In making the interestin.f portrait collection of Americans earlier than the eighteenth century, recently published by the Boston Athenaeum, the librarian of that oldest history in the New England capital had to take into con.sideration the tricks that time 1ms a way of playing with the identity of ancient portraits. Several pictures of men and women who lived in the original group of colonies w’ere excluded because it is no longer possible to say with certainty that the names by which they are known are those of the sitters. It is now known t« be more than likely, for example, that the English poet, Charles Churchill, was the original of the picture long believed to represent the Ameriran soldier of King Philip’s war. Col. Benjamin Church. The portrait generally thought to be that of Miles Standlsh Is open to the suspicion of really representing somebody else, and some of the surviving pictures supposed to show the features of Roger Williams have been plausibly Identified as the portraits of other persons.
Some astronomers are of the opinion that the moon was once upon a time part of the earth, and that, while the latter was in a plastic state, our satellite was thrown out from It. They point to the Pacific ocean as the gash from w’hlch it was rudely rent.
Maybe so. But nobody knows why the surface of the moon, of which we never see muclr more than half. Is covered with so-called “craters” that bear no likeness to anything on the earth. They are bowl-shaped, usually circular, and rimmed by cliffs 5,000 to 10.000 feet high. There are at least :^,000 of them visible to the telescope, the biggest being 800 miles in diameter.,
The late Professor Pickering of Harvard was convinced that the moon has a little moon of its own, a few hundred yards in diameter, which can be seen only when the earth passes between the sun and the lunar orb, throwing the latter intq its shadow.— Exchange.
In the Days of the llustle.
I was making a new dress for myself. It was a good many years ago, in the days when we wore bustles. The bustle which I w’ore was a home-made, crude affair. When fitting the dress, I had put on the bustle in order to get the proper hang to the skirt. So, to save time, I tied the bustle around outside of my house dress, and then tried on the new skirt.
During the morning I found it necessary to go to the store, and while waiting in the crowded grocery for my parcels, a friend, came up to me and said, to the amusement of the bystanders : “Why, Lillie, what have
you tied around your waist?”
I found I had forgotten to take the bustle off, and had worn It on the outside Of my house dress all the way to the store.—Exchange.

The village will accommodate 2,000 persons.

“You are suffering from brain fag and ennui,** announced the specialist. “You should take more Interest In yonr buatness.”

Separate Skirts Grow More Important
If anything were needed to foster the success of the separate skirt, that ¡thing has come to the front, in the lovely Russian blouse of georgette crepe, or other material, which has been brought out for the summer season. It is an aristocratic garment, very graceful, and at its loveliest In crepes and other sheer fabrics. But certain of the new weaves in silk are running a close second to the sheerer materials. With a few of these blouses one may face the summer with confidence.
The separate skirt of white satin, or other fabric, and the separate skirt of black satin make the right background ;for these Russian blouses, having sufficient class and character of their ■own. Provided with the.se one may use all sorts of w'alsts and blouses to make combinations that result in dress suitable for any hour of the day or evening. Then there are the utility 'skirts of “sturdy cloth fabrics and the sports skirts that are so useful for occasions where one must be smartly but not formally dressed.
• A very attractive model for a cloth skirt appears at the left of the two
skirts pictured above, and is to be rec-'
omniended for w’omen who have slen-
is ex- ’
der figures. Its wide front panel tended at the sides near the top and perfectly tailored side pieces plaitcid lengthwise, are set in below these extensions, the plaiting extending acros» the back. The panel provides a good background for buttons' and buttonholes that are decorative.
The skirt at the right is another of the smart, plaited models which are w
not so frequently seen this season. It is made of a new weave In silk ins which stripes, differing in color and! weave, make the way of the designer easy. These run round the figure and * the plaits in the skirt are arranged to form a panel at the back and front. Almo.st without exception, belts and girdles are made of the same material as the skirts. , 41*

and beflowered brims this year, for roses, opulent Jasmine and broad, fall pansies are the style.
If manufacturers of ready-to-wear (élothes were to neglect to provide taf ' feta suits for summer wear the .'chances are that women would have ■them made to order rather than face ;a summer without them. Taffeta 'makes a crisp, cool, smart and often 'inexpensive suit that may be made
'more or less dressy^ according to the
; accessories worn with it aad is most •practical and comfortable for warm ¡weather. As there is a perennial demand for It we may count on new designs each season, at least until some other silk displaces taffeta. JSut all the new weaves are of a totally different character and cannot rival a silk to which they bear no likeness, so the taffeta siuts continue to fill their ovrn 'particular niche. Snits of Mlk Jersey and the latest arrivals, made of the lightest weight In trlcolette, may come to divide hcmors with taffeta snits when they are as welT known.
Navy bine is as much a favorite in ¡silk as in wool and the suit at the Mft of the two shown above is in thi# color. Its aJtirt Is ent with a Mli^t in» ward .slops toward the bottom aad Jip pteih. Ths cent Ja i^iialgbt hot at ffte wqi#lSilo\%idi a widh
