Mary, Mary, your song fas sweet.
Soft and sweet, and aocniny low;
True and tender its measure beat
Out Into the morning glon'
When the promise was made complete
On that Christmas long ago.
Shepherds watching their flocks, they heard
Angel choruses. Word on word.
And their souls were with wonder stirred—
Mary; Mary, your song was sweet.
Gently, gently, you hummed the song
In the stable poor and bare—
Still it echoes, and echoes long
It a mother song all fair.
In a melody true and strong
That all humble folk maU hare.
Wise men, bearded, and gray, and gaunt.
Rode through sunbeams that fell aslant,
Giving Voice to a glory chant
Mary, Mary, your song was sweet. ^
Stripes, and jeers, and the heavy tree—
These were his, and words of scorn.
Sorrow deeper than grief might be.
Bruising goad, and piercing thorn-
Still there echoed the melody
Which you crooned that Christr.uu mom.
One has brought him a winding sheet,
One has spied'for head and feet;
Now the price has been paid complete
Mary, Mary, your song was sweet.

By the use of perfect baking powder
the housewife can derive as much econ-
omy as from any other article used In
baking and cooking. In selecting a bak-
ing powder, therefore, care should be ex-
ercised to purchase one that retains Its
original strength and always remains the
same, thus making the food sweet and
wholesome and producing Sufficient leav-
ening gas to make the baking light.
Very little of this leavening gas is pro-
duced by the cheap baking powders, mak-
ing It necessary to use double the quan-
tity prdinarlly required to secure good re-

make u cake or biscuits, or test the

FROM A SAFE DISTANCE.
Story of Interpolations in the
EEKINS sat beside Miss
MAM Lewis In the choir. Per-
■SfMP kins sang baritone, and
HS?p she sang alto. They had
llrr sang In the choir for two
years, and naturally It was
U polite act at the first for him to ef-
fer to escort her home after choir
This got to be a habit with him,
lentil one evening he experienced a
peculiar shock. Another man appear-
ixl at the choir rehearsal and listened
(with evident enjoyment to the sing-
ing, and then calmly walked away
(with Miss I^ewls.
! Shocks of this sort are salutary to
^le young man In love. Without them

matter of course way. He simply

tory one to a girl. The tide of his af
Ifectlon may be smooth enough, but It
does not get anywhere. Women like
Ithe ambitious, aggressive man.
1 And certainly, from the feminine
standpoint, aggressiveness and ambi-
tion are never more aptly exercised
ithan In the effort to win her hand.
"Winning a hand Is different from hold-
ling It as though It were inherited

Ithat Perkins had had mighty few mo-
ments with Miss Lewis.
And she enjoyed It. No matter how
jmuch a girl thinks of a man, Bhe must
pnjoy his desperation and despair
Vhen he sees another man apparently
twinning her away from him. It Is this
leluslveness 1n woman nature that con-
stitutes a large part of her human na-
Perkins wanted to propose now,
hjadly enough: But he needed the
chance. This Easter morning when
[the choir arose to sing the anthem he
looked over the congregation and he
gritted his teeth when he saw Hol-
llcker sitting right in the Lewis pew.
• i Mechanically he took up his part of
the anthem, and as he sang an In-
spiration came to him. He and Miss
Lewis had sort of a recitative second
part to the solo during most of the
anthem. The soprano carried the air
and held all the attention of the audi-
ence, and the deep tones of the organ
effectually hid the words the baritone
and Miss Lewis sang.
Instead of the words on the page be-
fore him he touched her elbow with
his and softly Bang:
f'Am I never to have a chance—
Never to have a chance—
a chance to apeak to you aloneT"'
Bhe glanced at him almoBt with
■larm. She could not believe she had
heard him aright. He returned h«r
glance and again sang:
|"I mean what I nr.
Lrlatan to m*.
For I am deeply—
Am deeply In earnest this morning."
With another glance, of understand
lng this time, she sang:
"What In the world—
What In the world—
What In the world do you meant"
Perkins waited until It was his time
to sing again and then he leaned a bl/
toward her and sang:
"Tou know very well—
You kno wvery well"—
She took up her part of the anthem
in her mellow alto tones at once with:
recommended by lending physicians and
chemists. It complies with nil ilYUPi l
food laws, both STATE and NATIONAL.

A distinguished eye surgeon tells a
good story of his hospital days. Threa
other young, newly fledged oculists
and himself were chatting In their
quarters in the hospital when the con-
versation turned, as was natural in
young men, upon the beauty of differ-
ent colors of eyes. One championed
the superior brilliancy and sparkle of
the blue eye; another the depth and
fire of the brown, while the third was
all for the clear, cool light of the
hazel. After they had exhausted their
eloquence, with the usual effet t of con-
firming themselves in their original
opinions, the fourth young sawbones
suddenly broke In:
"I don't care a hang about your blue
eyes, or your brown eyes, or your gray
eyes! Just give me sore eyes and
plenty of 'em—and I'll be happy!
Putty-Head Hard to Penetrate.
Napoleon Bonaparte once said the
hardest task his artillery ever essayed
was the reduction of a mud fort in
Egypt. It absorbed shot and shell as
tho desert absorbs rain. That's why
a putty-headed man discourages you.
If you hit him In the side of the head
with a sledge hammer you only mako
a dent In his skull. Then if you hit
him on the other side, the second
dent drives the first one out. He is
capable of receiving and retaining
but one dent at a time, and that on
the outside. The only thing you can
do to give him new impressions is to
lay his head out In the sun for a hun-
dred years, when it will harden like
granite, which can be easily punc-
Uncle Ezra—Then you think the
battle of Wounded Knee was a great-
er event than the reformation?
Uncle Eben—Certainly. I've seen
them both and I'll bet the "battle

"I can't lmnfttne—
What do you mean?"
It was the moment for the choir to
swing Into the finale. The organ was
booming and the singers were begin-
ning to fortissimo passages. Perkins
-I Will—But Do Not Kiss Mo
Bllpped his hand under the book and
caught her fingers in his. He sang:
"This Is my only chance—
Say that you will wed me.
O. Bay that you will wed me.
"Will wed me."
There was an answering pressure
on his fingers, and with a demur*
smile on her lips she answered:
But do not kiss me here—
Ab the congregation was leaving
Holllcker came to Miss Lewis and
"I must, congratulate you on the ex-
pression you gave to your part of the
music this morning."
"So must I," Perkins declared. "And
while you are about It, you might as
well congratulate us both."

I COULDN'T STAND IT."
"I Buffered with eczema on my neck
for about six months, beginning by lit-
tle pimples breaking out. I kept
■cratchlng till the blood came. It kept
getting worse, I couldn't sleep nights
any more. It kept itching for about a
month, then I went to a doctor and
jot some liquid to take. It ^seemed
as If I was going to get better. The
Itching stopped for about three days,
but when It started again, was even
worBe than before.* The eczema itched
>o badly I couldn't stand it any more.
"I went to a doctor and he gave me
some medicine, but didn't do any good.
We have been having Cutlcura Rem-
edies In the house, so I decided to try
them. I had been using Cutlcura
Soap, bo I got me a box of Cutlcura
Ointment, and washed off the affected
part with Cutlcura Soap three times a
day, and then put the Cutlcura Oint-
ment on. The first day I put It on. It
relieved me of itching so I could slefif
all that night. It took about a week,
then 1 could see the scab come off.
kept the treatment up for three weeks,
and my eczema was cured.
"My brother got his face burned
with gun-powder, and he used Cutlcura
Soap and Ointment. The people all
thought he would have scars, but you
can't see that be ever had his face
burned. It was simply awful to look
at before the Cuticura Hemedies
(Soap and Ointment) cured it.'
