The empress of Russia recently chose a white veil with a fine web-like ground and a black border, consisting of a single row, of-black chenille spots.

A great quantity of the money invested in the postoffice savings bank, not improbably the bulk of it, belongs to the middle class and not to the working class families. The same is true, though to a less extent, of many of the other important,sayings banks, while the mass of the loan capital and no inconsiderable portion of the share capital of many friendly societies ai)d building societies,-does not 'represent the savings of the wage-earning classes. Even if all this capital ,were owned by the workers it would represent only about £18 per head of the actual wage earners, or about 2 pel- cent of the total accumulated wealth of the nation. As the matter actually 'stands the testimony'of these "savings" Is almost worthless and can at most be taken as one Indication of the indisputable fact that a large proportion of the working classes are better .off and more provident than, they wevo formerly. ttir bt^ittdh »ftd ftt? ffcftl fttStif tif Ctgritttttti One 6f the big fet&ck "tftSkefS town has as office bef •wlie to became a gtftfllffe ftai flhatice wheft he gftiWfi ufr York Mail afidt U*pfe68. tt! ftf Wall BIG DOG—BIG STORY. for the 1 Charleston Man Vouches Truth of TUU Tale. "I'll tell you a dog story," said a gentleman to a Charleston News and Courier reporter recently, "that Is hard to believe, and yet I give you my word that it is absolutely true. Now, you doubtless remember that on Christmas eve there was considerable noise on the streets, firing, of crackers, etc. This was, I noticed, very annoying to my big mastiff, who is kept in a small stable yard on my premises. The dog, however, was, I thought, secure, as it.was confined by a high wire netting and fence. i "During the evening I was obliged to I go out to summon a physician on account of the illness of my little girl, .'and after- coming back about 11 o'clock sat up in a dressing gown and slippers to wait for the doctor's arrival. Presently there came a long ring at the bell, and then another and-, another. 'That's not the doctor," said I to myself, and, grumbling at.,the idea of callers on business at-that'hour,.I went down to the door. Opening it, imagine my, surprise at seeing my 100-pound mastiff standing with his feet on the gate-post, ringing the electric bell with his nose. It was evident that he had been reading the papers that the coachmen had left about the stable and, .finding himself locked out, said to himself: 'I'll press the button and he'll do the rest.' I of course invited him in and escorted him through the house to his own quarters,.where I found he had broken through the wire netting and probably gone out to investigate the Christmas bombardment, but he had forgotten the way back and so called me up." •'" fe'utoiaer'ljorae for the Preoldent. The purchase of eighteen acres of land at Congress Heights for a summer home for the President of the United States and for other purposes is provided for in a bill introduced in the house by Representative Denny. Tho amount of the appropriation designated is $100,000 and the land specified is a portion of Wilson park, which overlooks Washington, Maryland and ..Virginia. The plan of the bill is to protect the timber growth there so that it shall be adjacent to the proposed summer home.—Washington Post, dttwfief , Otttt»w&, towfcj A. teffley, ft cabinet ttak§rs" at 652 E.

My regular physician "gave me medicine and 1 took a quantity of patent medicines, all to no purpose.

While my physician was making regular visits I was called Upon by u friend, who asked me if I had ever tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I told him 1 had never heard of them. He begged me to give them a trial. I was timid, for I had taken so many nostrums, as they proved themselves to be, and did not care to throw away any more money on them, to say nothing of the harm they might do inc. He insisted that I should try them, however, and even took mo by the arm and walked me down to the nearest drug store,' where I purchased a box to please him. • \ "I noticed an improvement in my condition after using the first box. After takiug the second I bogan to grow stronger and I continued the treatment. My friends soon began to congratulate me on my improved appearance, and how much better and fleshier I was looking. I took nine boxes, and they completely cured me of my disorders. When I began them I had run down from my normal weight of ISJ5 pounds to 117 pounds. I soon got up to 127 pounds, felt as well and strong as over, uud ate what I pleased without discomfort. All of my f riouds and neighbors know how sick I was and how well I got. • One lady called on uie a day or two ago and askod what cured mo. When stio found out she gaid that she had a friend in Cripple Creek, Colo., who was afflicted the Mime way. At my instigation she sent him a couple of boxes of the pills.

The universe rises into solemn gratideur and'commands Otir reverence, not when we think of It as a theater of blind forces, or a vortex of whirling atoms—not when we-regard It merely as a spectacle for eyes that open and wink a few times, then close in eternal sleep—but as a nursery, a home and a school for rational beings, and aa a temple In which they may meet aM commune with the infinite Wisdom, Goodness and Beauty.

In his book on "The Study of Celtic Literature," Arnold showed that one of the qualities which the English people admire most in some of their poets is the very quality which, above all others, is the distinguishing characteristic of the Celtic bards, and that Ossian in particular is saturated and pervaded with the quintessence of this trait. To denote this characteristic trait' of Celtic poetry Arnold' used the word -Titanism. No one has" defined Titanism, but it has been caricatured in the saying, "The Celtic mind seems always sailing nowhere under full sail." Those who wished to know the full meaning of the word were recommended to discover it by devout study of Byron and Keats, "And where did they get it?" asks Arnold. "The Celts," he answers, "are the prime authors of this vein of piercing regret and pan T sion, of this Titanism. in poetry.
