How much is implied in the one
word home. It is not only the
plaoe where we are sheltered and
housed from the storms that are fre
quently raging without, but home iB
where there's oue to lore, home is
where there's oue to lore us.
How fortunate it is if there are no
envious persons among our large cir-
cle of readers. It ia the shadow of
other people's success that clouds
our lives. Their superiority in
talent, wealth, beauty, or social re-
cognition. When you bear a man
ur woman abused, look on the de-
fender's side. Look for noble traits
instead of defects. It is those who
are embracing the opportunities as
they are presented, and making a
* success of every undertaking, that
attract the attention of the envious
persons and sours the milk of human
kindness in them. When you are
assailed by an envious person, take
it as a compliment, for people are
never envious of a failure. The
nearer you attain to perfection in
anything, the thicker the arrows of
envy will fall around you. Envy is
taking the place of love in the hearts
of our children, because we put more
time on their dress and outward ap-
pearance, than we do into the cul-
ture of character. "The soul alone
endures." and we are training iin-
\Mortal souls for eternal happiness or
Misery. If we would impress on
their miuds ivhile their hearts are
^ tender, and their unture plastic,
these words, "Do unto others as von
would be done by," vary much of
this envious spirit would be eradica.
ted, and in its stead would spring up
firm principles of truth, love, cour-
age, honesty and all that would make
tbem beloved. We are sowing tnvy
id the hearts of our children by the
manner in which we converse before
them. If a persou is prospering fi
liancially, they are not getting it
honest; if they are dressed tastefully
and neat, their clothes are not paid
for; and if they are living a Christ
ian life, they are not as good as they
pretend to be. Let's not onl) be
''"good, hut do better, by letting our
livec be tilled with helpfullness and
sympathy for others, and have our
« hearts full of love to cover up their
mistakes and failures.
Without any thought that she
might do otherwise, the mother lays
her every moment of leisure on the
family alter, sod finds only rare mo-
rne.uts to look at the books and tnag-
i<iues, that once afforded her so
much pleasure. Wheu the father of
ibe family comes home to supper, he
leads bis daily paper, or perhaps a
Dew book; but when the day's work
for the mother is over, she still finds
Moore little Whor of love that must
be done for her loved ouos She
does not see how it can be otherwise.
She cannot neglect her children, and
so abe neglects herself. But what if
this condition of affairs elints in her
.husband's business? Suppose that
be finds that his work cannot be
the beginning. Sweeping, dusting
and sewing can be done just as suc-
cessfully if some new thought that
she has read the night before, some
new beauty that she has enjoyed,
comes to her over and over. Her
life would be sweeter and richer, if
she had some leisure, if some little
part of each day belonged to her
WHITE CROSS ORGANIZING
It Will Have Same Object As
Chicago, Nov. 30.—A meeting will
be held in this city tomorrow after-
noon which will have for its objnct
the organization of the American
White Cross First Aid Society. The
men who have so far been active in
the project are Dr. Nicholas Senn,
Dr. John B. Murphy and Dr. Cbas.
Adams, all of this city. From the
present plans it is probable that Dr.
Senn will direct the active work of
the society and that Miss Clara Bar
ton will at least be made an honor-
The objects of the society will be
the same as those of the Red CrosB
Its scope will be as broad as that
of the Red Cross, but for the present
it will be purely a national organiz-
ation. The plans of the profectors
are to spred the organization through

just arranged that the young womau
of his Zion City congregation shall
be seated in the front of the Zion
tabernacle. The young men are to
content themselves with views of
their charmers' back hair, for they
will sit away back. So strict have
Dr. Dowie's views become on the sep-
aration of the sexes among young
people, that he is said to have a plan
for separate skating pouds.

DESTROY YOUR COTTON
If the stalks are left in the lield,
!weevils will continue to multiply un-
til winter, and the number of weevils
going into winter quarters for hiber-
natiou will be large. Destroy the
stalks entirely, with all trash, burrs
and damaged bolls early in the fall
while yet green, and you will cer
taiuly cut down the number of wee-
vils that go into winter quarters.
Turning stock into the lield in
large numbers is one method of des-
truction, and helps mainly by short-
ening the food supply for the wee-
vils. If followed up by a very deep
flat breaking of the laud in Novem-
ber or December, it is likely that a
great many weevils will be destroy

Another plan is. considering three
rows: Turn both the outside rows
toward the middle one and let the
turned out rows dry. bunching the
dead stalks clossly against the live
ones of the middle row. Use Bean
mont oil and burn.
A third method is to turn out the
entire crop iu the ordinary way, pile
ths stalks while still green ami use
Beaumont oil in burning.
The essential feature in this plan
is to destroy the stalks while green.
If the stalks are turned out aud nl
lowed to dry liefore piling, most of
the sdult weevils will seek winter
quarters elsewhere aDd thus escape
destruction by the later burning.
