. . . slow through the suburbs plod-
ded the German farmer, with flow-
ns and fruit for the market."
The descendants of the German farm-
ers who plodded through Philadelphia’s
streets during Evangeline’s day are
the Pennsylvania German or the Penn-
sylvanaa Dutch of the present.
The land of the Pennsylvania Ger-
man extends northward and westward
from Philadelphia a hundred miles or
so In each direction, and so fur as
language and customs are concerned
Is a foreign land. The country Is rich
farm land and the Pennsylvania Ger-
man Is a notable farmer.
His lunguuge is not German, but
Pennsylvania German—a dialect that
savants say has not been spoken In any
part of Germany for nearly a century.
In order to conduct his market busi-
ness it has been necessary for the
farmer to learn some English, but It Is
not unusual to find stay-at-home mem-
bers of the family who can neither
speak nor understand English, al-
though they and their parents and
their grandparents were all born In
America. The English they do spenk
Is a queer hybrid, of the sort spoken
by the tired market woman who re-
marked that she was “teetotally uusge-
Most of the Pennsylvania Germans
belong to the Mennonlte, or the Hun-
ker church, although there are other
sects among them, including one that
holds It sinful to cut the hair or to
wear buttons on the clothes. It Is
well worth a trip through a city market
to see elders of the latter sect, long-
haired, much-bearded men, with their
clothing held In pluce by large hooks
The women all wear dresses with
tight-fitting waists and long, gathered
skirts. The dresses are usually brown
or black—never of any bright color.
Their head covering Is n little white net
cap and a little dark bonnet. The
young girl’s dress In the frivolous style
of the town until they Join the church.
Then they "turn plain" and don the
conventional white cap. From that time
forth they are required to keep their
heads covered. On very hot days the
matron at work in a hot kitchen may
shove her cap far back on her head,
but she never altogether removes It.

"Sleep that knits up the ravell’d sieeva
The death of each day’s life, sore la-
Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s sec-
Chief nourisher in life’s feast.”
Man can live longer without food
than without sleep. There are many re-
corded Instances where men have gone
for forty or more days without food
and have recovered from the experi-
ence. I do not know the maximum num-
ber of days that a man can go without
sleep, but it is fur short of forty. The
expert workmen who line the great di-
gesters In paper mills must often work
for sixty hours without more sleep
than they can snatch during the time
thut new material is being brought in
to them, never more than ten minutes
at a time. Surgeons and doctors some-
times work continuously for fifty or
sixty hours at a time after great bat-
tles. These men are always exhausted
after such periods of work and sleep
excessively lor^g periods in order to get
back to normal. It is probable that a
man who was not working could go
without sleep for a longer period; but
It seems to be the general testimony of
those who have been kept awake for
as much as sixty hours, by third de-
gree methods, that by that time they
are willing to confess to any crime or
do anything else to get sleep.
The virtues of sleep as a “balm of
hurt” minds is sung by Shakespeare in
the “Tempest” as-follows:
It seldom visits sorrow; when It doth
It is a comforter.
Young expressed much the same
thought in the lines:
Tired nature’s sweet restorer, balmy
He. like the world, his ready visit pays
Where fortune smiles—the wretched he
While the ancients described Som-
nus, the god of sleep, as the gentlest
of the gods, “the tranquilizer of minds
nad soother of care-worn hearts," Sir
Philip Sidney sang of sleep as:
The baiting place of wit, the balm of

ist’s exaltation of sleep:

•A. Is Indeed “a thing of beauty and
a joy forever.” Seeing proves the
first part of this statement and wear-
ing will confirm the fact of just such
a gown being "a joy forever.”
In the category of esthetic dress
there Is no more reliable frock than
the one made of printed chiffon.
IVIthal Its fragile loveliness of deli-
cate fabric, glowing with wealth of
color and design, it has its practical
qualities. The very fact that it revels
in such multiplicity of color, fits it
into every scheme of environment as
if it were a part of the picture. “What
season, however, marks a sensational
entry of the cloth coat of regal splen-
dor Into the ranks of winter wrap
There is considerable Interest mani-
fested in coat fabrics which simulate

are houcle woolens which can scarcely
be distinguished from astrakhan. The

Two plans for the review are sug-
1. The Summary Method. This will
he to lift out the main facts of each
lesson and state the leading teaching
thereof. The following brief state-
ments are suggested:
Lesson 1. God called Abraham out
from his country nnd kindred to make
him the heud of the nation through
i which the Redeemer was to come. The
| leading lesson Is that God blesses men
J and nations In order that they may be
a blessing. This Is the universal law
j of the spiritual realm.
Lesson 2. Israel was given an exalt-
] ed position In order that she might
| make God known to the nations. The
| message they were directed to proclaim
j was that God was the Savior of all
Lesson 3. Israel’s geographical posi-
tion afforded the best opportunity to
carry the Gospel to the whole world.
She was literally In the center of the
world. Special privilege carries with
It special responsibility.
Lesson 4. The burden of the message
of the prophets was that God Is great
In mercy to all the nations when they
penitently turn to Him from their sins.
Lesson 5. Strong drink works great
ruin to all. The only way to escape
this ruin Is to totally abstain from Its

central message the Spirit of
