Indeed, in the novelty of "the design and the exquisiteness of the coloring, the calendar . surpasses all previous issues, just as Hood's calendars have for many years surpassed all others. The calendar is foi-med in the shape of a heatt and is ornamented With two beautiful child faces Which have always 'been charming tea; turds of Hood's calendars, On the fight is a representation of "Winter," the sweet little face With light browtt eyes peeping out iAtytlfttfe* -*«d yes, >?v . , '" keeping 1 here.

Everything was simple in the extreme, the oaken table, polished to a high degree, was laid with pink Japanese doylies, one at each cover; the rolls tied with broad pinlt ribbon, and a quotation card, tied with a knot of the same, were at every place, and these quotations, which all bore on the theme of love, were read before the guests were seated. Chrysanthemums, delicately tinted with pink, were the floraL decoration, and at the place of the guest of honor a huge bunch of the:same flowers in white, suggesting her bridal bouquet, tied with white ribbons, on which in gilded letters were the words, "Beatrice luncheon" and her Christian name. The viands were eminently substantial, as these practical women do not advocate ethe- rial food for love's nourishment. But the real feast was that of reason. Would that some of the clever things that were said could be chronicled, but the wit flashed and scintillated too fast for record. And who says that a woman can't make an after- luncheon speech? Anyone who doubts her ability in that line should have :been present'.at" that, affair. Every woman present gave an original toast, and two or three made speeches that Chauncey Depew would not blush to own. The Beatrice luncheon, given ijby-sucliM'brigrht^iWomen and -such a prospective' bride", will outlast the usual period of such fads and will become a fixed institution.—Chicago Times. The Kettle. There's many a house of prandeur, With turret, tower, and dome, That knows not peace or comfort, And does not prove a home.

A little clean disorder Does not my nerves upset But one thin? is essential, Or seems so to my thju?bt,' And that's a tli.v kitchen Whore the kettle's always hot In my Aunt Hattie' s household,! Though skies outside are drear, Though times be dark and troubled, You'll always find good cheer, And in her quaint old kitchen, The very homiest spot, The kettle's always sinking, The water's always hot. And if you have a headache, Whate'er the hour may bo, ' There ia no tedious waiting To pet your cup of tea I don't know how she does it, Some mtwio she has caught, For the kitchen's cool in summer, „ yet the kettle's always hot Oh, there's naught else so dreary In any household found As a poia ana sullen kettle That does npt mftke a gound, An4 I think that loye is lacking In the hearts in suqh a spot, Or the kettle wp«ia be singing And tb.e water would be hot. -Ella Wheeler WUoox in Youth's Companion, from a dainty cap, while the snow flakes are falling all about. The face on the left is a picture of "Summery and is lighted .With blue eyes and the head covered with bright flowers. The shades are perfectly blended, and the whole picture is surrounded by a tasty border. The design was made by Miss Maud Humphrey, one of the most gifted and celebrated water color artists in the country. The calendar gives the Usual information concerning the lunar changes, and tpbn the back is printed a table of astronomical events especially calculated for C. I. Hood & Co, The calendar is issued to advertise Hood's Harsaparilla, Hood's Pills andthe other preparations of the firm,and is regarded as most difficult to manufacture, its novel shape being such as no other concern has ever undertaken to produce in large quantities. It was necessary to purchase several additional machines especially for this job, so that there was a very large amount of machinery and a whole regiment of people employed in this branch of the extensive business at the big laboratory in Lowell. During the five months when the calendars were being made there were actually employed ev«ry day in this part of the work at the laboratory six printing presses, one bronzing machine, four eye letting machines, seven wire stitchers, eight large paper cutters and 1C2 persons. At the beginning of the work this large force was able to produde about 100.000 calendars a day and foi- several weeks toward the close the daily production amounted to 140,000 calendars. The edition of Hood's calendars for 1805 was 10,500,000, or about 2,500,000 more than last year. This, of course, is an immense number , but the general reader has -only a faint conception of its magnitude until he is reminded that the little 500,000 added to the ten millions is considered an enormous edition by many of the largest advertisers in the world._ If the calendars were laid down in a single line, they would reach almost one thousand miles, and if the different pieces in the calendar pads were laid in this way they would extend almost three thousand miles, 'or' from New York 'to Liverpool. For the past eight years," Hood's calendars have exceeded in number every similar publication, but it was hardly dreamed that the'y would ever come up to the mammoth edition which was demanded this year. Lowell has long been proud of this great industry, which has given her almost a world wide reputation, and it is a matter of no small importance that so many of her people find pleasant and profitable employment in the work of making and advertising the great blood purifying medicine, Hood's Sarsaparilla, whose actual cures in every part of the country have been the wonder of the medical profession and have caused many hearts to overflow with gratitude. Those who are unable' to obtain Hood's Sarsaparilla Calendars at the drug stores should send six cents in stamps for one, or 10 cents for two to C. L Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass.

"Yes," said a prosperous lawyer, in speaking to a friend, "I had a long wait before I got any practice, but I am certainly satisfied now with my profession and its emoluments. "The early days, the waiting for clients was hard, though. Why, do you know that I got so after a while that when I heard a footstep on the stairs I could 'tell ninety-nine times out of 100 whether or not the person was coming to my office. P" "Well, that is strange," replied friend, "Your sense of hearing have been very acute." "Not so much, that," replied lawyer. "You see, I made up. they Here are fouf dl the most famous labyrinths of the world. It was customary during the middle ages to insert in the Hoof of tho nave of certain cathedrals a labyrinth of black and white stone or colored tiles. Those labyrinths Were known as "ttoads of Jerusalem," owing, it is ptobable, to the fact that worshipers Were accustomed to traverse the sharp stones of the maze upon their knees in memory of the journey of Christ from Jerusalem to Calvary. That of the cathedral of Sens is ol circular form and incased in lead. It measured sixty-eight feet across", and the length of tha circuit, which took afl hour to traverse, was over a mile and a half. The labyrinth of St. Owen was formed .of blue and yellow tiles and measured uhree quarters of a mile. That of St. Q.uentin was. taken away ill 1792, because children played the game of "Who Can Get Into It the Quickest? 11 disturbed the worshipers. Why the children were hot taken away instead of the labyrinth history does not say. The labyrinth of Bayeux is of black squares bearing yellow griffins, roses and armorial bearings, which mako it a great rarity. T HtU S.

In a recent article on Coffee and Cocoa, the eminent German Chemist, Professor Stutzer, speaking of the Dutch process of preparing Cocoa by the addition of potash, and of the process common in Germany in which ammonia is added, says: "The only result of these processes is to make the liquid appear turbid to the eye of the consumer, without effecting a real solution of the Cocoa substances. This artificial manipulation for the purpose of so-called solubility is, therefore, more or less inspired by deception, and always takes place at the cost of purity, pleasant taste, useful actio"n, and aromatic flavor. The' treatment of Cocoa by such chemical means is entirely objectionable. . , . , Cocoa treated with potash or ammonia would be entirely unsalable but for, the supplementary addition of artificial flavors by which a poor substitute for the aroma driven out into the air is offered to the consumer." The delicious Breakfast Cocoa made by WALTER BAKER & Co., of Dorchester, Mass,, is absohitely pure and soluble.

Although by many believed to be incurable, there is the evidence of hundreds of living witnesses to the fact that, in all Us earlier stages, consumption is a curable disease. Not every case, but a large percentage of cases, and we believe, fully 98 per cent, are cured by Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery, even after the disease has progressed so far as to induce repealed bleedings from Hie lungs, severe lingering cough with copious expectoialion U»clud- . ing tubercular inat'er), great loss of flesh and extreme emaciation and weakness. Do you doubt that hundreds of such cases, reported to us as cured by " Golden Medical Discovery " were genuine cases of that dread and fatal disease ? You need not take our woi-d for it. They have, in nearly every, instance, been so pronounced by the ^est and most expeiienced home physicians, who have no interest whatever in misrepresenting them, and who were often strongly prejudiced and advised agamst a trial of "Golden Medical Discovery," but wlio liave been forced to confess'that it surpasses, in curative power over this fatal malady, all other' medicines with which they are acquainted.
