Briefly, the Belgian people have demanded universal suffrage.  Universal suffrage means the downfall  of olericalism, the introduction of compulsory educat/lon    and free   nchools,  and an approximation (ait least) to an  Incorrupt ministry.' The May elections  are approaching. JM.

After fearful bosiogeinent of the two  fortresses of Jerusalem, Antoniii and  llippiciis hud been going  on  for    a  long While, a lUiinnii soldier, mounted  on  (ho 'shoulder of another   soldier, hurled into  the window of the  temple a firebrand,   anil   the 'temple  ���was all' ullami', and     after covering  many sacrifices to  the holiness     of  ,.   God,    the building     itself became a  sacrifice to  the rage of man.���'���' The  hunger of iho people in  thnt.     city  during tho bcslcgcinunl was so great  that as some outlaws were passing u  doorway  and  inhaled  tlie odors    of  food    they    burst    open    the   door,  threatening the mother, of the household  with  death     unless    she gave  them come food, and she took them  .aside Mid showed them thai it wus  her own  child she was cooking    for  .the ghastly    repast.       Six    hundred  -priests     were destroyed on     Mount  Zion becauso. .the temple being gone,  tliere was nothing for  them  to  do.  'Six thousand people in    one cloister  ''iwore    consumed.   There were 1,1.00.-  ��� 000    dead "according   to    Josephus,  'Grotius   thinks that     this was thtl  '���cause of sill   ;e for half an hour.   II  Mr. Lord  was right, and this silence  was during tho Diocletian persecutions, by wliich 844,0U0 Christians  suffered deaili from sword and lire  and .banishment mid exposure, why  did not heaven listen throughout at  least one of those awful years'? Nol  Thirty minutes! The fact is thai  tho celestial program is so ei'ov ..-���  cd with spectacle that it can allo-il  only one recess in all eternity, und  thut, for u short space. While there  are great choruses in Which all heaven can join, each soul there lias a  story of divine mercy peculiar io  itself, and it must be a solo. I low  can heaven gel through witli all its  recitatives, witli all its cantatas,  with all ils grand marches,, with nil  its victories? Eternity is too short.  to utter all tho praise.  In my     text heaven spared thirty  minutes,      but it  will      never again  spare one minute.      In worship     in  earthly  churches      where  thero     are  ninny to take part wo have to counsel brevity, lull how will heaven get  on  rapidly enough to lot one     hundred     and forty-four   thousand   get  through each witli his own story and  then ono Iiundred and forty-four million and  then one hundred ami forty-four billion and then one hundred  and forly-four trillion? Not only are  all  tlie triumphs  of  the past to    lie  comnuMiioi-atoil,' but all tho triumphs  to como.   Not only what we know of  God, ..but'What-wo. will know of Him  after everlasting study of the deific.  If my text had said there was silence  in   lieu.en  for  thirty  days,   1  would  not liave been startled at the      announcement,  but  it indicates thirty  minutes.      Why,     there     will'be so  ninny friends to7 hunt- up, so    many  of the greatly good and useful   that  wo will want to sc�� so many of the  inscrutable .,things of earth we, will  need     explained, so many     exciting  earthly- experiences we will want to  talk   over,  and  all  llie other spirits  and all the.ages will want the samo,  that tliere will be no.opportunity for  cessation.      How busy   "'we will "be  kept in having pointed out to no llie  heroes  and  heroines  that the  wo: Id  never fully     appreciated���the yellow  fever and  cholera doctors who  died,  not  flying  froni  their  posts;  the female nurses who faced pestilence   in  tlle lazarettos; the railroad engineers  who stayed at their places in order  to save the train, though they themselves  perished.

The nm III tudes of men and women who got no crown on earth we  will want to see when  they get their  crown in heaven.   I tell you heaven  will have    no  more half hours     to  spare.   .-���  lly subject also, impresses ine with  Ihe immortality of a lu.lf hour. That  half hour mentioned in my text is  more widely known than any other  period in tlie calendar "of heaven.  None of the. whole Hours of heaven  i.s' measured off, none of the years,  none of the centuries. Of the millions of nges past and the millions of  ngj.s to come not one is especially  measured oil in the Bible. Bui the  half hour of my'text is made immortal. The only part of eternity thnt  was ever measured liy earthly timepiece was measured by the minute  hand of my text. Oh! tlie half hours!  They 'decide everything.71���nm nol  asking what you will do' with the  years: or'inontlis or days of your  life, but wlint of tiio .half hours?

Again,, my text suggests a way ol  studying heaven so that we can better understand     it. The-word ���'eternity"  that we can li.i'ndlo so     much  i.s un immeasurable word.    Knswini;  that we could not understand   : tlm1.-  word.  Ihe Bible uses il   oniy      once.  We  say.   "Forever  and  ever."     But  how long is "forever and ever?"       1  am glad that my text puts under our  uy'e heaven for thirty minutes.       As  when you seo     a great  picture, yon  put a sheet of paper into ii     scroll  anil look    through it or join     youi  forefinger to your7 thumb and    look  through thu,circle l;etiveen. and    the  picture liecoinos  , liiui'i:, intoii.-o,      so  lliis masterpiece of luivvni     liy   St.  John is more impressive    when     we  take only thirty minutes of il at    a  lime.

She looked ut him und saw that he  was nbove the ordinary and felt that  had she been introduced in the conventional wny she would have been pleased to mako his acquaintance.

There wns $10  in It for him. win or lose, but this time  Mr. Chisliolm was arrested for malicious persecution. In his testimony he  referred to the plaintiff ns "tlint lady"  and exhibited no animus whatever, but  lie also proved that lie was the one persecuted. The widow's hogs would not  let hlni alone. She was beaten again,  mid this time a stout pen was built,  und the hogs were shut up. The farmers hnd of course taken sides. Some  contended that Chisliolm hnd exhibited  a menu and uniiclgliborly spirit and  others that the widow luul been derelict in no* mending her fences, and  there was much talk and discussion.  It occurred now und then thnt the two  principals met on the highway or at  the crossroads meeting house, but  while Chlsholiu lifted his hut and bowed as if there wus nothing ou his mind  the widow, except for her blazing eyes,  seemed carved of stone.  That pen held the hogs for a long  six weeks, but hogpens have their  weal; points, and patience and perseverance will seek tliem out. The hot  sr.n warped n board and made an opening, and the industrious swine enlarged  It until one night they all passed out  and headed straight for the next farm.  They fetched up among the cabbages,  pumpkins, squashes, melons and carrots, mid during the loug hours of  darkness they ran riot. They were  missed from the pen early next morning, and tlie widow sat down on the  doorstep and cried. She cried because  she wns vexed, and she cried because  she was p. woman. Every minute she  expeeted to hour the crack of Chls-  holm's I'illc, and she fully realized tbnt  any I'urtbei' appeal to the law would  be wasted. Slio was vexed at the  hogs, at Josh anil at Chisliolm. Her  tears were still fulling when the new  neighbor stood before her and bowed  and suid:  "Mrs. Jnson, those blamed hogs of  yours damaged me a hundred dollars'  worth last night."  "And how many more have you killed?" she asked.  "None,   I've just driven 'em home." ���  "Hut wliy-wliy"-  "Bccausc I see_how it ls.

There is not a single organ of tho human body that can perforin its functions -without a liboral supply of  nerve force���Iho motive power of thu body.  Tlio nervous system should never bo thought'of as a scparato part of tho body.- Its branches extend from  tho brain and tho spinal column to the tip3 of tho fingers and toes. Just as the blood is carried by tho arteries to overy nook and corner of tho system, so tho nerve force, by means of nervo fibres, is distributed and  nerve force is just as important to life as is good, rich blood.  When tho nervo cells aro wasted, by over exertion, worry or disease,' more rapidly than thoy aro replaced,  tho action of tho heart becomes slower, tho lungs begin to weaken, tho stomach fails to do its duty, tho liver  and kidneys falter in their work asilltors and tho excretory organs get fecblo and inactive. You may bo a  sufferer from weakness and exhaustion of tlio nerves and may havo been attributing tlio trouble to the stomach, kidneys or other organs. Nervous exhaustion is marked by restlessness, disturbed sleep, languid, weary  feelings, headache, dyspepsia, and bodily pains, inability to conccntrixto the' thoughts, absent-mindedness,  weakened memory, twitching of tho muscles and eyelids, sudden startings and jerkings of the limbs in sleep,  dizziness, irritability and gloomy forebodings.

It was only when Jo-  slah Flint was' made village marshal  that the old blnck' porker wns driven  off to the'pound one day. There were  folks that said it was right and folks,  that said It wns wrong, and there was  so much feeling about It thnt nfter two  or three daj's a public meeting wns  called.

The labor press is  the educator along these lines Just as  the political'press.Is the educator in  politics and' the daily press is the educator on .general topics and conditions  of trade, commerce and national doings. And the labor press does still  more than this. By getting it clrculat-  ed*amongst-the-'u'noiig'an!ised-and_un'her.  llevers,, it teaches them w'herein they  nre wronged, opens their eyes and understanding to the rights and wrongs,  and tlle true conditions of the wonkers,  and ,gets them Interested In the movement and adds them to the ranks at  organized labor.

She Is the Yonnsest Womnn College  President In the World.  ' Miss Mary Emma Wooley. who assumed the presidency of Mount llol-  yoke college. In Massachusetts, ut the  ago of thirty-five yenrs, I.s the youngest  woman college president In the' world.  Few'women have had a more thorough  courso of educational training tliun lias  Miss Wooley. She took a |iri'p:iiator.v  course of study In the high schools of  Providence anil Mentha seminary.  Then she graduated frnm I'rnwn nud  Amherst colleges, winning laurels In  every study. She entered IliOwn university in 1801. when the question of  co-education was being agitated, and  was one of the llrst two women to receive its degree of ii. A.J  During her postgraduate course at  Brown she made a special study of his-  PRESIDENT WOOLEU.''  tory. She also devoted a largo part of  her time to languages���Latin, ('reck,  Hebrew aud Gorman���In wliich she received the degree of Lilt. D. and in  1900 L. II. D. at Amherst..,  Previous to hor presidential appointment she was for live years a member  of Wcllesloy faculty, being the head of  the department of Biblical history and  literatui-o. When at Welli-sley. slio  took an important part iii the administration of college affairs.  Miss Wooley was a pioneer in profit-  'lng b.v the opening of tlio colleges for  the higher education of women and in  her own person has demonstrated the  success of this movement.  She has always endeavored by her  work and literary efforts to promote  advanced education for her Osox at  home urid nboad and to that end is one  of the most important members of the  Rhode Island Society For Collegiate  Education For Women.  The Modern Restless Girl.  Tliere was a time wlien sweet and  twenty used to be considered typical  lightheadedness, mirth and innocent  merriment. Girls of this ago were sup;  posed to liave hearts of feather weight;  to them all tho world was young. A  life was clear nnd bright, everything  wns novel, and what perhaps was  grandest of all was their large nnd un-  dimmnd faith in everybody nud everything.  Girls had nt all times their faults, of  course, though they were no less lovable and sweet and charming on that  account, but there seems ou the part  of the modern girls a tendency to despair and mope which their predecessors never displayed. The fault Is not  altogether theirs. Their mothers are  most to blame for it they in turn being  the victims of that spirit of unrest  which pervades modern life.  As a matter of fact, the girl of the  period is overfed with excitement, and  then, like the littlo boy at the school  treat, she cries because she cannot have  more. Perpetual change is what she  wants. She wants to shirk nil the duties that girls of other generations accepted as a matter of course and in  which they found rest���the duties, for  example, of home life.  Tbe thoughtful mothers must teach  their daughters to secure happiness in  the simple joys of life at home and ln  -the dutles_whlch_belong tp womanhood.  Nothing Lllre n Couch.  A feminine authority on houso furnishing has recently dell cored herself  as follows: "A room without a couch  of some sort is only half furnished.  When the lm.nl throbs and the soul  yearns only for endless, dreamless  rest, ten minutes' respite on a couch  "tbnt Qts' means physical nnd mental  salvation. A comfortable, convenient  sofa Is a positive means of grace.  Tliere Isn't a doubt that the need of a  nap ls often mistaken for a longing to  die.  "In nearly every reception or living  room, of course, there Is un article of  furniture that answers to the name of  sofa,, but It Is not worth the space It  covers or tho time taken to keep It In  ���order, so far ns real comfort Is concerned. The rnison d'etre of the two  armed velvet tufted yard and a quarter  sofa continues to be ns much of a mystery to me ns the domestic economist's  motive in purchasing those limber legged, carpet faced -Ifi degree lounges one  sees 'marked down' In front of cheap  furniture houses. To mnke a homo truly homelike give uie the broad, low.  hospitable much, whose very presence  Is nn Invitation, a benediction, a delight."  Celnir n flood flontcni.  A woman may possess wealth untold.  she may have uie Kindest of hearts and  the hi-h-'hu-si '���! minds, but unless she  |.-i.:  !il!,M'iii;e  ei.nifdl  of    her   feelings  there will be some time in her careei  ns hostess thnt she will display annoyance or flurry, and the contngion,  spreading to her guests, will die oui  In an undisguised failure.  A model hostess must to nil appearances be made of stone, so far as disagreeable happenings are concerned.  Kven though a guest or careless waiter  Inadvertently breaks a bit of china  which can never lie replaced, she must  smile as though the loss of tho whole  set would but emphasize the pleasure  of the evening. Her well bred calm inspires her guests with n feeling of confidence, and, though In her heart she  may be very dubious about certain important details of her dinner or dance.  If slip docs, not show her anxiety everything will pass off to a happy conclusion.  A flurried hostess or nervous host  whose countenance but badly conceals  llie worry felt can do more toward  making tho guests uncomfortable than  If the soup were served stone cold and  the salad dressing was lAilned by a too  bountiful quantity of vinegar. An imperturbable calm and a ready tact nre  the two important'factors in tho making of n model hostess.  The Use of Peroxide.  Peroxide is antiseptic and healing.  Its blenching qualities malic it feared  by the average woman. In the bauds  of those who are familiar with its virtues and the many uses to wliich it can  bo put it is most excellent. Haw flesh  will heal quickly under ils magic  touch, nnd pimples will disappear  without leaving scars.' A weak solution suitable for toilet purposes can  be purchased' hy the ounce, but unless  It is kept in a dark colored bottle and  away from the light It loses some of  its power. Sonic women prefer 1o buy  it in sealed packages and full strength  and dilute it one-third with water  whon using it.  It can bo applied to any part of the  skin, but should be kept away from  eyebrows, lashes and hair about tho  f.-'jo because of' its bleaching power.  For siipeiiliious hair upon the skin it  can lie used with prolit. as it takes out  the color by repeated application and  wlien used often enough will weaken  tho hair.  Kllntnkefi In Famishing*.  An error whicli the inexperienced  houso furnisher often makes Is to put  two reds of different tones in rooms  that open into each other. A hall, perhaps, will have terra cotta on the  walls, and tliere will bo red in the dining room to which it leads. This is  wrong. Put a negative color on the  hall, a tone of buff'or mastic, with a  small broken figure in self tones, that  there may be no suggestion or strong  contrast to the rod of tho adjoining  room. If blue is to bo used in the dining room, not too light a yellow may  be put on the hall. It is these jarring  arrangements in adjacent rooms that  may destroy wholly an effect in either  apartment that by itself or properly  complemented;; would bo altogether  charming.  Dishcloths.  The modern housekeeper understands  that rags for a. dishcloth aro neither  cleanly; nor profitable. The shreds get  into the plumbing, often with expensive effects, and a dishelolh so worn  that it will hot bear regular laundering  In the weekly wash is one that cannot  receive proper care. In all well regulated houses dishcloths are ns distinct and  separate a provision of tho household  economy as napkins or pillowcases.  Material for the purpose Is sold in the  shops, and tho cloths should be hemmed as carefully as any bit of tho  household linen.  Room Doom.  It Is a mistake, according to an nrtist,  to discard doors too generally in a suit  of apartments, replacing them with  portieres. Retain some of them and,  where it seems possible, hang a picture  on one or decorate it with a brass ornament or two set above. In using  the portieres, too, do not have them all  hanging In straight lines. Introduce  one or two soft silk hangings that may  be looped back to break the monotony.  Chafed Skin.  The constant chafing of the skin hy  clothing, as the rough edge of a neckband, may cause an eczema on tho  tender skin of a child most difficult to  cure. The cure Is the removal of the  cause of irritation and a liberal use of  healing ^powdcr.._Applications should  he frequent until the skin is healed.  Keeping Foods.  Food articles that are damp should  never he left in ordinary paper. I'aper  is made of wood pulp, rags, glue, lime  and similar substances'Intermixed with  acids and chemicals. When damp, it  should not bo allowed to come Into  contact with things that are to bo  eaten.  An Anil Sieve.  A good substitute for an nsb stove is  a piece of hoard placed on a slant  ngulnst the wall. Throw the nshes upon this, and the fine material will adhere to It, while the iinburnt coal will  roll down to the bottom anil oil at thr  sides.  A harmless and cleanly wny to drlvi  nway mice Is to saturate a cloth with  cayenne pepper In solution and stulT It  Into the hole. Dry cayenne thrown  about will keep ants and roaches awny.  Nice tablecloths and napkins should  not.be allowed to become much soiled,  so that they will' require vigorous rubbing with soap or in hot water.  To stop shoes creaking pour a little  linseed oil on a disband place the soles  of the shoes In It over night  Woman's honor Is nice as ermine���  will not bear a soil.���Dryden.  DRESS ACCESSORIES.

DRESS TRIFLES.  Parasols, Tea Jackets nnd Embroidered Waistcoats.  Tarasols Can be bought almost foi  nothing at this time of the year. White  sunshades nre always fashionable, nnd  Persian patterns promise lo be all the  style.  Tea jackets are very fashionable in  the marquis style with embroidered  waistcoats, and embroidering these  coiisiitutcg.in dainty bit of fancy work.  Those embroidered waistcoats arc also  much used with tailor mades wliich  have open front Jackets.  Several well known society women  have the pretty fad of always wearing  n certain kind of llower no matter what  time of the year it is. This Idea can  be carried out by Iho girl in moderate  circumstances if sho uses artificial  ilowcrs on her evening dresses. It is a  chic French notion to loop in ribbons  or silver cord with the flowers, nud a  WOIIII IN "FKOCKS AND FEILLS."  dainty bunch of artlilcial blossoms' so  arranged goes far toward renovating  an old evening dross.  The creation in tlio sketch is worn in  "Frocks and Frills." It is an empire  robe of black point d'esprit ovcr silver  gauze, with an applique of ivy leaves  in cut out velvet. The gown is finished  at the bottom with masses of pink chiffon frills and chiffon roses.

Some are spotted with what  Is known ns the snow effect, others aro  striped, nnd still others are quite plain,  blue, deep red and gray being the favorite colois. Plain faced cloth, however, has more adherents, especially  among stout women, as hairy mate  rials increase the size of the figure.

A certain man went to Europe, leaving his family at home. He was either  too indolent or too busy to write often.  But he could not afford to cable long  dispatches, so he wrote his wifo that -  ho would condense each Into a single  word by using only initial letters. The  first message he sent was BROWN.  While .lie was congratulating himself  upon outwitting the cable company by--  sending five words in ono tho family at  home wore distracted over their varying interpretations of the message. His  daughter thought it* meant "Bought  ling on Wednesday night" and began  guessing just what kind of a ring it  was. His wife In hor anxiety road it,  "Big rain; out; wet; neuralgia." Other  guesses at the intended meaning differed ns widely.  In playing the game any word may  be used Instead of "Brown." Let the.  lender, who Is supposed to be tho traveler, announce the word,. keeping tha  meaning to himself, nnd let each player write his 'guess of the intended  meaning on a slip of paper. If thero  are prizes, the one who offers the nearest guess wins. The game may bo varied by supposing that the message is  sent to mothor or son or to wifo or to  business partner or from some particular city, ns London, Rome or Jerusalem.���New York Tribune.     ���  Fool's Cap Scarecrow,  Holland farmers play a trick on the  crows which keeps the thieving birds  away from "their gralnf-ids. They  make small cornucopias of stdut paper,'  smearing; the inner side with birdlime  or some sticky substance. These are  Clled with a few grains of corn and  stood about in the field by sticking tho  points Into the earth. Down comes Ur.  Crow.-thlnklnghimself In great luck.to_  find so much corn ready for blm. He  tries to. peck at' lt Lo, a fool's cap  sticks to his head. He cannot get it off.  His friends are scared, too, as they sea  him scrambling and staggering about  for he cannot see which' wny to go.  After he' tears the sticky cap loose ho  vows tbat be will never go near that  field again. This method of keeping  crows away is better than shooting  tliem, ns they are nt all times very interesting birds, and the damage they  do to the growing corn ls insigulflcant  compared to the great good they doh.il  through the" year by destroying millions of injurious Insects.

In this climate thoro are many reasons why people feci all out of gear  in the spring moi ths. Perhaps the  chief of these is the long hours in  imperfectly ventilated ofllces, shops  and houses during tlie winter months.  You may feel that tliere is nothing  serious tlie matter ; you arc only a  littlo tired after, siiglhl uxertion, or  perhaps, your appetite is fickle, or  little pimples or eruptions on tho  skin show that the blood is not as  pure as it should be. If you fool  this way. not only your comfort but  your health demands tliat you take  proper stops to cleanse yourself of  the blood, impurities that arc responsible for your condition. You  need a tonic, blood purifier, nerve  strengtlienei- and general up-1 ifter of  the entire system. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Palo People meet all  those requirements more perfectly  than any other medicine. These are  tonic pills and not violent nnd weakening like purgative medicines. Nature does not icquirc a violent measure in spring, but u helping hand to  throw oil tho impurities whicli have  accumulated during the \yiiitcr, and  so- toiiihg STTd'sti-eiigtiroiiiiTg every  organ and function that a condition  of perfect health will prevail.

I would advise all who feel  run down and out of sorts to tako  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

Satisfactory Improvement Leads to  a Continued Treatment Wliich Results in a Complete Cure���An Interesting Story Whicli Will No  Doubt Prolit Anyone Suffering  Wilh Lumbago.  Holyrood, Ont., April 11.���(Special)��� Mr. Bat. Pinncll, of this place,  has for tlio past two years been a  great sufferer with that most painful and stubborn disease���Lumbago.  Tho pain he suffered was almost beyond description and nnuiy were the  medicines und treatments he used to  try and get sonic relief. However,  nothing ho^ could find seemed to help  him in the least, anil he became very  downhearted.  At last someone suggested Dodd's  Kidnty Pills, and Mr. Pimiell, although ray skeptical, thought ho  would make one more trial for a  cure, and began to uso them.  Tho first box did not do him very  much good, and after he had used  part of the second ho began to feel a  change for the better, so he kept on  until he had used in all seven boxes,  .when he wns delighted to find lhat  every symptom of the Lumbago had  entirely disappeared.  II is general heal tli is much improved and he fells better today than he  has for years.  To say that Mr. Pinncll is pleased  does not begin to express it. Only  those who have suffered as he did  with this vory painful disease can  understand the extreme satisfaction  of ono who has found a complete  euro and restoration to health and  strength.  Lumbago is a direct result of disordered kidneys, and should always  be treated as a Kidney Disease.  Efforts to cure or even relieve by  outward applications are invariably  unsuccessful. Rubbing may in itself  for thc lime being produce a little  relief, but in order to secure a complete cure it is absolutely necessary  to go right to tho root of the  trouble.  The Kidneys must be restored to  their normal condition. This is just  what Dodd's Kidney Pills do, and  this done tlio lumbago vory soon  leaves, for without diseased kidneys  (here can be no lumbago.  4  ��� 9  For Sale Everywhere        ���  Try our Parlor Matches.

So far as research has been able to  . determine glass was in use 2,000 years  beforo tbe birth of ,Cbrist and was  oven then not iu its-infancy by any  manner of moans.

This is the oldest  .specimen of pure glass bearing anything like a date now known to exist  Tho invention now known as "blcez-  ing," the mode of varnishing pottery  with a thin film of glass, Is believed to  date back to the llrst Egyptian dynasty.

Tlio Momta ot Animals,  ���It may be questioned whether animals havo any conception of morals  as we understand the term, but in a  general sense lt would certainly seem  that they have, in tbe social sense  there is no doubt as to the answer. To  take a woll known instance, the ant  family hnvo evolved n most complicated social system v,-h!cli apparently  works to perfection, and that is more  than can lie said for nny human system. Iu order, cleanliness, care of offspring, provision for future wants nnd  military discipline no civilized society  can compare with theirs. Tbey are  slaveholders, it is true, but tliey treat  their slaves with every kindness and  consideration, and the warrior ants defend them in time of danger.  Another excellent example Is fui'-  nlslicd by the beaver. During summer  lt lends a solitary lifo. but nt the up-  -proneh���of���wlnti'i���eomiuunltlos-nre-  formed. building operations commence,  stores aro laid up us soon ns the dwellings are completed, and every individual  of the community recognizes clearly  that the interests of tlie family and  the colony come flrst. In their family  life they, in common with many otlier  animals, offer an example which might  well be copied not only by savages, but  also by civilized communities.  Grief and Thrift.
