Celebrating the Tin Wedding.
An author who was about to cole-
brate the tenth anniversary of her
marriage describes her plans In this
"For refreshments, will serve coffee
In tin cup, with tin spoons, and dainty
sandwiches on tin plateB; will pass
water in a tin pail, using a tin dip-
per. All refreshments will be passed
In tin pans, the waiters will use tin
coffee pots to refill the coffee cups.
For a centerpiece for the table, will
ase a large tin cake pan, with an
opening in the center, in which a
small fish horn can be placed, the
cake pan and fish horn both being till-
ed with flowers. Shall decorate the
rooms with tin as far as possible. In
one archway shall use tin plates tied
together with ribbon, a small hole
being punched in the plates for the
purpose. Thts will form a curtain for
one archway. In another archway
shall use tin cups for the same pur-
pose. Tin candlesticks can be used
If one is fortunate enough to have
them. Wire toaBtors tied with ribbon
can be hung on the walls to hold pho
togrnphs. Small tin spoons tied with
ribbons can be given as souvenirs, be-
ing passed around by the waiters, In
a tin dust pan."
A few more suggestions would be
that the bride carry her bouquet in
s tin funnel and the bridegroom could
have a very small tin horn In his
buttonhole containing a small bou-
quet. Potted plants and flowers may
be set In tin palls for jardinieres and
vases, and Bmall tin basins can be
passed Instead of finger bowls. Tin
foil may be put to various decora-
tive uses, not forgetting to wrap the
bonbons in it.

A Novel Sewing Shower.
„ There were 12 neighborhood girls
who had grown up together and when
the first one announced her engage-
ment and approaching marriage, the
others decided to give her a sewing
shower. Each one brought a yard of
dainty figured lawn and the ho*«ess
supplied patterns for the following ar-
ticles which were useful and easily
made In the afternoon. There was
lace, beading, ribbon, embroidery cot-
ton, needles and thread on hand and
the girls worked merrily. Here is
what the happy little bride-elect took
home: Small aprons, a sunhonnet, a
slumber-pillow cover, a hair-combing
Jacket, a corset bag and a Bet of bu-
reau drawer sachets.
The refreshments were: Lettuce
sandwiches, lemonade, green-and-whlte
frosted cakes and pistachio ice cream.
They were served on little tables cov-
ered with wvite dollies.

A Good Thing to Know.
To increase the lasting capacity of
candles, kep them In the Ice box for
24 hours before using. They will
burn much slower, and to the up-to-
date hostess who uses candleB con-
stantly this Is quite an item. It Is
quite customary to light the dining
room almost entirely with candles
placed around the room or the plate
rail, mantel and sideboard. These are
not Bhaded, and It la a very pretty
Idea to have Individual candles at
each plate. These are usually shaded
to protect the eyes.
A Jack Horner Pie "Shower.”
This Is a pretty way to present the
gifts to a. bride at a shower If the
articles are small like hosiery or hand-
kerchiefs. Make a Jack Horner pie In
tho colors the hostess wishes to have
and when dessert time comes (If the
occasion Is a'luncheon) ask each guest
to pull her ribbon and as the package
Is fortlffcomlng, each one has some ex-
cuse to find like “This plea* of pie Is
too large, please hand It to Miss B—,
(the honored guest). And the next
one says: “My piece Is very much
too small, just pass It to Miss B—
This makes loads of fun and opening
the parcels adds zest to the occasion.
It Is well to have an appropriate senti-
ment written on the donor’s card to be
read aloud. Handkerchiefs and stock-
ings may be rolled and concealed in
tissue papor with fringed ends and so
look like the snapping motto fav.ors so
popular at all social functions. The
ribbons tied around each one and all
put within the pie.

Pekin, China.—When the ballots of
China's first presidential election
were counted It was found that a
woman had received three electoral
votes. The little person who thus
boldly contested honors with Dr. Sun
Yat Sen was Miss Shen Pei Ching,
the commander of the amazon corps
which formed a part of the revolu-
tionary army. With a burning desire
to emulate Joan of Arc she had or-
ganized a company of infantry com-
posed of maidens as courageous and
patriotic as herself. She had secured
for them arms, uniforms and equip-
ment and had drilled them In the lat-
est military tactics. At Nanking these
resolute maidens could be seen
marching to battle, each carrying a
heavy rifle and several cartridge
belts. While they were never allow-
ed to go Into action no one doubted
that the amazons would have fought
valiantly had they been given an op-

party. They acted as messengers,
carrying documents which the revo-

to the malls. They served as Bples
In the very strongholds of the im-
perialists. They smuggled arms and
ammunition to the secret revolution-
ary societies which flourished In ev-
ery part of the empire. It never oc-
curred to the police that the baggage
of Innocent-looking high school girls
might contain rifles and revolvers
destined to be used In the overthrow
of the government.
Sometimes an over-zealous customs
officer in rumaging through their
trunks might find implements of war
carefully concealed beneath delicate
feminine garments. Perhaps a coy
glance and a smile from the owner
of the contraband baggage would de-
ter him from reporting the matter,
but If he did his duty the poor girl
would be handed over to the police,
who would put her to death by tor-
ture. Many girls thus suffered mar-
Monster of Deep Cause Fishermen
Much Trouble—One Caught
With Ice Tongs.
New York.—Great numbers of tho
dreaded angler fish have recently ap-
peared in the North and East rivers
and have been seen floundering in the
mud flats around Staten island. These
giant fish, which weigh from 40 to 200
pounds, are much dreaded by the fish-
ermen. for they open their capacious
mouths almost as wide as their stom-
achs and gulp down great quantities
of small flsh. They also destroy the
nets of the fishermen and render no
equivalent service to the piscatorial
world, as they are entirely useless
commercially. In addition to the
name angler the flsh is entitled to be
called goose fish, fishing frog and all-

betrayed the cause or told the names
of her comrades.
Soon after the establishment of the
republican government in Nanking
the amazons, headed by Miss Shen,
took the lead in demanding the right
of suffrage for women. They pointed
out to the republican leaders that the
women of China had worked for the
revolution quite as hard as the men.
The assembly in NanklDg was large-
ly composed of men who had been
leaders In the revolutionary secret
societies. These men, being thor-
oughly familiar with the work of the
amazons previous to and during the
revolution, could not find it in their
hearts to deny them their wish. The
assembly In Nanking accordingly-
passed a law giving women the right
When the overthrow of the Man-
chus had been accomplished President
Sun Yat Sen retired In favor of Yuan
Shlh-kai, who was then elected pres-
ident. Soon after Yuan's election the
assembly was moved from Nanking to
Pekin. The conservative atmosphere
of Pekin seems to have caused the
legislators (o repent of their action In
granting women the right to vote. At
any rate, the law was allowed to be-
come a dead letter In so far as the
national government was concerned.
Several of the southern provinces,
however, kept the compact and al-
lowed women to vote and even to
Though disappointed at the apparent
breach of faith on the part of the
national assembly, the suffragettes
were not disheartened- Under the
leadership of MIbs Shen they began
a national campaign for woman suf-
frage. They established branches of
their society In most of the large cit-
ies of China and sent out lecturers to
address mass meetings and to hold
conferences. They began to publish

He was arrested by Patrolman Stan-

Kelley declared he was intoxicated,

he never would kiss a mule again, but

adapted to avoid the supposed danger
in that it would cripple Israel, keep

How frequently man is deceived. A
babe is born in the home of the rich
or the great of earth and we speculate
upon the possible ensuing changes in
history, whereas at that same time
another child is born unheralded in
some humble home that God raises

Attention has been called to the hum-
ble marriage (v. 1) of Amram and
Jochebed (ch. 6:20) and the import-
ant outcome. No marriage is trivial.
It does not appear that to cast the
male children into the river was an
edict when Aaron was born. Though
humbly born Moses was nobly born
and his parents thought more of their
duty to God than the edicts of man
Moses was a “godly child” (v. 2, Acts
7:20 R. V. marg. and Heb. 11:23 R.
V.). That Is, he was without blemish,
well pleasing to the eye, “fair to God.'
His parents must have entertained
the hope that he was to be the deliv-
erer of Israel and taught him so to
believe, see Acts 7:25.
II. The Child in Danger, w. 3-6.
At three months of age (Acts 7:20) it
was no longer possible to hide the
child Moses. However„instead of his
being cast into the river he is cast
upon the river. Jochebed knew of the
delivers „e of Noah and it is prob-
able that her meditation upon this
suggested to her the adopted plan, for
she made her ark somewhat after
the lan Noah followed, Gen. 6:14.
She also knew of the habits of Pha-
raoh’s daughter and planned accord-
ingly. It was a perilous risk to com-
mit her child to the crocodile Infested
river, but Bhe trusted Jehovah (Heb
11:23) and God honored her faith, as
It seems a trivial incident for this
daughter of a king to Indulge in

Bent one of her servants to Investi-
gate. Seeing so many strange faces
the child begins to cry; how very
ordinary, yet how wonderful when
considered as a part of God’s plan for
the redemption of a race.
III. The Child Delivered, vv. 7-10.
From the monuments of Egypt we are
able to study Fharaoh and his court.
His word was supreme. At this op-
portune moment under God's direc-
tion, the cry of a child is used to set
aside Pharaoh’s word and to turn the
course of history. The tears of the
babe found their way Into the heart
of this princess of the royal house and
thus the deliverer came from the sys-
tem from which he was to set his
brethren free. God knew that among
those frivolous Egyptian slaves there
was none properly fitted to care for His
own. So It is that the waiting sister
offered to secure a Hebrew woman
to care for the child, perhaps accord-
ing to a pre-arranged plan with her
mother. The plan is successful and
the very best nurse possible was se-
cured. The only nurse properly fitted
and God-endowed for the rearing of a
child is its own mother. Perhaps it
was Pharaoh’s infamous decree that
led hts daughter to send her new-
found treasure away with a Hebrew
woman with the promise of wages
(v. 9). At any rate, Pharaoh is set at
naught in his own household and his
edict worked a blessing to Jochebed.
It was moBt certainly during these
plastic years that Moses was instruct-
ed concerning God, Abraham and
Isaac and God's covenant to these the
fathers of his race, and to look for-
ward for Him who Bhould deliver
Israel. See Acts 7:25 and Heb. 11:24-
God providentially separated the
Israelites from Intermarriage with the
Egyptians, a fact which saved them
from deterioration and effeminacy.
The absolute impossibility, humanly
speaking, of their deliverance enabled
God to end their affliction and de-
liver to them His promised inheri-
tance. The hour has now arrived for
deliverance, all that is needed Is a
leader and in His own way He is pre-
paring that leader. Moses was neith-
er killed nor enslaved. The venture-
some faith of Moses’ parents in spite
of all appearanoea preserved tlu> Ufe
of their babe.

"Mother had been suffering with
nervous headaches for seven weary

“One day I asked her why she did
not give up coffee, as a cousin of min.
