There, is the wife who is stunned and miserable because she discovers that marriage is not a lasting picnic; who cannot realize that her husband must be different from the lover; and spends her days.in impotent whining. She is always being- neglected, and always taking offense; she has (in insatiable craving- for attentions, .and needs continual assurances of ail'cction, wasting her time and feelings in gutting up pathetic scenes of accusation, wlilch n"nal- ly weary and then alienate her husband. " Her own fault! There is nothing a' man hates more, than a woman going sobbing- and complaining about the house with red eyes unless it be n woman with whom he must live in a perpetual fool's paradise of perfection. There are also discontented wives who goad their husbands into extravagant expenditure and urge tlhem to projects from which they would naturally recoil. There ore others whose social ambitions slny their domestic ones, and who strain every nerve, in season, and out of season, and lose, ad! their self-respect for a few crumbs of contemptuous patronage from -some person of greater wealth than their own. Some wives fret if they have no children, others just as much if children come. In the first cases they-are disappointed; in the second inconvenienced, and. in both discontented. Some lead themselves and others wretched lives because they have not three times as many servants as are necessary;. a still greater number because they cannot compass a .life of constant amusement and excitement.— North American Review.

THE "MODERN NOVEL. Lillian Russell, while riding- her golden wheel near Contra! park. New X'ork city, the oilier clay, collided with an unknown cyclistand was thrown to Hie pavement." Her costly "wheel \va.s.smashed and her ankle was hurt. Riders in the vicinity of the place where the accident occurred witnessed a blur of bicycle fragments, hosiery and fluttering lace. Then they rushed ro the singer's assistance. Miss Uussell had -join; for her usual .ride in Central park. She wore a tan bicycle suit that fitted as if she had been melted and run into it, and the gold lace with which it was trimmed was just, sufficient in quantity to suggest the pomp and circumstance of the stage. Miss Russell turned out of the park a.t the One Hundred and Sixth street gate, leaving the policeman there bewildered- by one of those smiles that it is her habit to bestow with such effectiveness. A scorcher and a-n ice wagon were coming up Manhattan avenue at a pace that should have called for police interference. Miss Russell saw the ice wagon, but she could not see the bicycler who was riding hard to beat the iceman a.nd so rebuke the entire iceman fraternity. "Hi, there!" shouted the driver. Miss Russell took that as her cue to dodge, and her experience having led her to be prompt when she hears her cue she wheeled 'suddenly to the left. The iceman tried to pull up as best he could and. his horses just missed tbe distinguished .rider. But the bicycler, who had been, hidden by the wagon, had no time.' He had not seen Lillian nor tlie glimmer of her golden wheel, and he ran full'^nto her. There were yells from bystanders and the twtf bicycles seemed to be doing a golden-skirt dance. Prom out of the confusion came feminine grand duchess screams. The ice- mnn pulled up and run to solve the golden puzzle. Bystanders a.nd a policeman also came, and with difficulty Miss Russell was extricated from the involved situation. She was bruised, and the pretty costume was pretty no longer. Her ankle hurt her, and the golden wheel was as if it were a game of jackstraws in which the trick was to pick out the back bone. The man apologized KO nicely that Miss Russell refused to make a, complaint ag-ainst him. The iceman called a cab and the diva was helped info jt and driven to her. house, at 31S West Seventy-seventh street. She was singing in "The Little Duke" at the Harlem opera house, but her ankle hurt her so when she reached home that she 'sent word to Manager Reed she would not be able to appear at night. But, then," she thought it over and feared that her voice, might oga-in be suspected of going back on her, so she went to the theater as usual, / The audience was an appreciative O7ic, and no audience ever laughed, so hard at the fun in "The Little Duke.'! The singer's ankle weakened twice and she fell flat on the stage. "It will be all right soon," she sajd, after the play, "and raally, I thick it was almost worth while/my hearers were so very, very appreciative." scription \v!iich refers to t.7ie conquest ;)Tid defeat of Syrians, Assyrians and Israelites, tends to show t.hnt the exodus must have taken place before the fourteenth century B.

NEAT CORNER DESIGN. Charming Put tern for a Centerpiece «r » Luncli or Tea Clotli. As illustrated, this design decorates just one-quarter of an oblong linen centerpiece, 20 by V.Z inches in size. Besides tho corner scallops there are four deep scallops at each side of the border and three at each end. Use white or bnlf- bleachcd linen, fine and smooth, yet heavy enough to keep its place on the t able. Buttonhole the edge with Asiatic twisted embroidery silk to match, No. £002 if the linen is pure white, or 2003 f slightly unbleached (the numbers indicate the shade of the silk, not the, size). Outline the ribbons with Asiatic Roman floss (same number as the edge silk), and outline or embroider the lilies, ;>uds and stalks with the same silk. If :oo coarse for any part of the work. draw out one strand of the silk; it will not roughen or injure it in the least Knlargcd, this design would be exceedingly pretty for a lunch or tea cloth made of heavier, round thread linen, with a two-inch hem-stitched hem. Such, cloths are usually 3G or 40 inches square. —American Agriculturist. FOUND A' REMARKABLE SLAB. laroen,-, White an<l Yellow.

Picayune. 'Wheel Tni and Good Roads. .' The daily' papers which are pleading for wheelmen to resist ordinances taxing \vhceis are doing poor missionary •work-for'.the good of cycling. They speak against t-h'e best interests of wheelmen, individually and collectively, .and should not be considered. No ordinarily-educated wheelman will object to a wheel tax, when tie is assured | that the^mpney so collected will be used | in road Improvements, and since the ' majority of .wheel tax ordinances recently passed, guaranteed this provision, wbealroen have no.kick coming, misinformed -newspapers notwithstanding^.—Cycling Gazette. Potrl* "Writes Dr. Breasted of • Becent DlNcpvcrj-. Dr. Breasted, head of the department of Egyptology at the University of Chicago, has received word from Dr. W. St. T. Petrie that that eminent explorer and Egyptologist has made one of the most important 'archaeological discoveries of the age. In excavating a temple near Thebes he came upon a basalt slab, the inscriptions on which may upset many theories as to the exodus of the children of Israel. On the slab among a mass of other inscriptions was found the word Israel. The line containing the word reads: "The people Ysriaal is spoiled; it hath no seed." The slab dates from the reign of Me- renptah,..son of 1 Eameses IT. Where All the Timber GV<*- ,0ne of perhaps, man y little considered ways in which the forests of tbe country are being oaten up is in supplying timber for railway timber worc-k. There are 2,000-miles of trestle structure in the United States, according to an. estimate by tho forestry division. This trestle work has to be replaced entirely every nine years on an average and every year timber amounting' to 200.000,000 feet, board measure, is used for this purpose. Nearly all the timber is cut from the largest and finest trees. The an- ir.ial expenditure on this work is estimated at about $7,000,000. A Peculiar Ifablt Doc* Hare.
