The honeybee is a most ingenious architect, a Christopher Wren among insects; geometer drawing hexagons and pentagons, a freebooter robbmc the fields of pollen and aroma, wondrous creature of God, whose biography, written by Hnber and Swammerdam, is an enchantment for any lover of natare. Virgil celebrated the bee in his fa bin of Aristaeus, and Moses and Samuel and David and Solomon and Jeremiah and Ezekiel and St. John used the delicacies of bee manufacture as a Bible symbol— a miracle of formation is the bee. _ live eyes, two tongues, the outer haying a sheath of protection, hairs on all sides - . other cause. Elopements, marital intrigues, sly correspondence, fictitious names given at postofBce •windows, clandestine meetings m parks and « ferry gates and in note! parlors and conjugal perjuries are among the ruinous results. When a woman young or old gets her head thoroughly stuffed with the modem novel, she is in appalling peril. But some one will say, Ihe heroes are so adroitly ravish and the -heroines so bewitchiugly untrue and the turn of the story so exquisite, and all the characters so enrapturing I cannot quit them " My brother, my sister, you can find stvlesof literature just as charming that will elevate and purify and ennoble aB d Christianize while they please. The devil does not own all the honey. There is a wealth of good hooks coming forth from our publishing houses that leave no «cuse for the choice ot that which is debauching to body, mind and soul. Go to some intelligent man or woman and ask for a list of books that will be strengthening to your mental and moral condition. Life is so short and your time for improvement so abbreviated that you cannot afford to fill up with husks and cinders and debris.

The marriage of the young couple followed and they went to Chicago to spend their honeymoon. Allen, Insisted Riley, had made a false affidavit In swearing Miss Riley to have teen of marriageable age. Allen learned of this, and, it Is alleged, sent word to Riley that he would shoot him on sight. The tragedy followed. The Marrluge Wall ft Failure, Too. Allen was released from, jail ten days after the shooting. The special grand jury called to investigate the case failed to indict him, accepting his plea of self- defense. The bringing of this civil action by Mrs. Rlley U considered as being for the purpose of establishing, if possible, the criminal liability of the defendant rather than to recover damages. Should the verdict be for the plaintiff there is little doubt that Allen will be •ailed to answer to the criminal charge of murder. Since the bringing of this •uit the young Mr. and Mrs. Allen have separated. The husband will be a witness in behalf of the defense, while the young wife will aid her mother and will in every way within her power endeavor to bring about the punishment of her lather's slayer. •TRICK A VERT OLD SCHEME. T«t Thes« Bent Citizens Boucht This Chunk of "Gold Bi'iok." Crawfordsville, Ind., Jan. 24.—Mrs. Samuel Petro. of Darlington, has a $1,- CtO "foot warmer" in the shape of a brass brick, which her husband and Wilson Hunt, a stock buyer, recently purchased from two Colorado "miners" -who said it was gold. An alleged miner •ame to Petro and Hunt and asserted that he and his partner were possessed •f a $5,300 gold brick which they had •btalned in a questionable manner in the west and which they were afraid to offer for sale at a mint or bank for fear of detection. Petro and Hunt agreed to pay $1.600 for the bullion and accompanied the man to Terre Haute, where partner and brick were duly found. A hole was; drilled in the center and the filing stoo'd the acid tests. The farmers gave, up their money and received the brick, over which they stood guard all night with cocked revolvers. They took the early morning train for home a.nd at Petro's house guarded the brick for three days more. Then the skeptical Mrs. Petro insisted that it be drilled into at another place. This was done and the b-ick was found to be brass. Less than J5 worth of gold had been poured into a hole in the center and from this the filings which stood the test was taken. Mrs. Petro now hoats the brick and puts it in the bottom of her tragey to keep her feet warm when she drives to church or town. INDIANA ELOPKKS CORNERED. dence. ____ TTiree-Cornerea Political Fusion.

Indeed, the hunger for food IB often overpowered by the hunger for wafers. It iu absurd for those of us who have never felt the fascination of the wager to speak slightingly of the temptation. It has slain a multitude of intellectual and moral giants, men and women stronger than you or I. Down under its power went glorious Oliver Goldsmith and Gibbon, the famous historian, and Charles Fos, the renowned statesman, and in olden times senators of the United States, who used to be as regularly at the gambling house all night as they were in the halls of legislation by day.
