Once upon a morning foggy,while I loitered, grouched and groggy, Over biscuits that were soggy and an egg that was a bore. While 1 dawdled, almost dreaming, and my coffee ceased from steaming, Suddenly there came a screaming— screaming never heard before, “ ’Tis some suffragette.” I mut tered, ‘‘screaming at my outer door; Just a noise and nothing more.’ LEBANON. .

He Owns Ip. “Own up now- Who’s the head of your family?” “My wife used to be,” admitted Mr. Enpeck. “But since my daughters are grown we have a com mission form of govenment.” What Christmas Means. Christmas means hope and its realization. The child grows eagerly expectant as the time approaches for the visit of Santa Claus. While this fiction remains unquestioned, the imagination opens new and wider words, and ideals become so much a part of the mind that the prosaic and commonnlace can never reach them. Until the youth reaches manhood and’independence, Christmas is the happiest (lay of the year. Its gifts and hearty good cheer impress family affection, parental thoughtfulness and brother ly love. The dullest and most irresponsive of father and mother are uplifted to a vision of higher life by' the interchanges of souvenirs and the merry meeting with child ren and grandchildren at the table and fireside. Few can escape and all enjoy the meaning of the festival, the lessons it conveys and the in spiration it gives,and we enter upon a brighter future and a fuller ap preciation of the beneficence of the practice of faith, hope and charity. The loved ones who have crossed to the other side, the loved near ar.d far who are still with us the old homestead with its precious memo ries, the old church whose sacred associations tie together ci.ildhood, maturity and age, love, marriage and death; the school house where the beginnings of education were so paintful, and the ever-increasing pleasures of the pursuit of learning through the high schools academy and college are recalled and recited, and there is exquisite delight in these oft-told tails, and new ex periences enliven this blessed an niversary'. Senator Depew in Leslie’s Weekly. [he Smiths, .John Smith —John Smith —is not very high sounding; it does not suggest aristocracy; it is not the name of any hero in the die-away novels; and yet it is good, strong and honest. Transferred to other languages, it seems to climb the ladder of fame. Thus, in Latin, it is Johannes Smithus; the Italian smoothes it off into Giovanni Smithi; the Spaniard renders it Juan Smithus; the Dutchman adopts it as Hans Schmidt; the French flatten it out into Jean Sineet, and the Russian sneezes and barks Jonloff Sinittowski. When John Smith gets into the tea trade in Canton he becomes .Jovan Schirn mit; if he clambers about Mount Hecia, the Icelanders say he is Jahne Smithson; if he trades among the Tuscaroras he becomes Ton Bu Smittia; in Poland ho is known so; Ivan Sehmittiweiski, and should ho wander among the Welsh mountains they talk of John Shmid; when ho goes into Mexico he is liooked as Jntli F’Smitti; ,if of classic turn he turns to 'lon Srnik ton, and in Turkey he is utterly disguis d*as '> oe Seei. —Phrenologi- cal Journal. Memorial. Father Time, with his scythe, lias been reaping in our midst and took to his mansion one of the true, trusted and tried servants. It may seem hard and yJmost beyond endurance to part with those we have looked upon as a guide and council in any trouble. Mother is gone. How sweet is the name. Then when coupled with this Christian we have a com pound word with a thousand fold of sweetness. Let this he taken from us, we, of course, are sorely troubled, but we should not be, for her’s is a great gain—taken from this world of sin, sorrow and trouble and placed in a lovely man sion where Jesus is and all the re deemed of earth —given a crown and many stars shining from it, I’ve no doubt.
