The first state to nilopt state old was New Jersey, n low having been passed by the legis- lature of that state In 1801.

■ V # I: ■ The Home Circle Happinees is a perfume that one cannot shed over another without a few drops falling on one's self. If you make childern happy now you make them happy twenty years from now by the remem- brance of it. It isn't enough to believe that "every cloud has a silver link- ing," and then sit down and wait for the lining to reveal itself. We can, if we will, take the X- ray of determination, and pieroe the cloud and find its bright side. When we learn to be polite, not only as society people, but as husbands and wives, Bisters and brothers, parents and children, we shall do well. No home can be happy where in sarcastio speech and rude disregard for one another's rights is the rule. The poorest girls in the world are those not taught to work. There are thousands of them. Rich parents have petted them, and they have been taught to despise labor and to depend up- on others for a living, and are perfectly helpless. The most for- lorn women belong to this class. It is th...

The Easter festival of our fore- fathers covers a period of fifteen days. The week beginning with Easter Sunday was almost en- tirely given over to sport and games and general merry mak- ing. Easter is a moveable festival. It is always the first Sunday aft- er the full moon which happens upon or next after the twenty- first day of March; and if the moon happen upon a Sunday, Easter day is the Sunday follow- ing* __ The sarced festival of Easter has been appropriately termed "the queen of festivals." It has been observed from the foundation of the Christain relig- ion, and is celebrate in every part of the Christian world with great solemnity and devotion.

CO DAY. appropriate to the Easter season, we are to eouslder on:' Lord's resurrection At (lie very outset we are confronted with certain errors which have grad- ually crystallized around the central truths of God's Word. One of these errors Is the supposition that the res urrection of the dead, which the Scriptures hold forth as the hope of the Church and of the world, is to be a resurrection of the bodies which go down into death. This mistake has given ground for infidelity to sneer at this precious doc- trine of the Bible. We are asked. How could the dust which once constituted the bodies of thou- sands of millions of humanity ever be re-collected and rearranged so that we could say that those bodies were resurrected? The Infidel urges that many of humanity have been eaten by fishes and anim...

The Home Circle Love ia the great home-maker, that makes even (he drudgery of housekeeping a pleasure, and home life a foretaste of the bliss of heaven. One cannot get too much love into one's home-mak- ing, but easily too little. The main thing with children is to have them well stared with good principles which they will carry through life. Obedince, truth, unselfishness, purity are essentials, and these can all be lovingly cultivated, and will flourish in the right home atmos- phere. The old-faehioned office boy, who 6wears, smokes cigarettes and is impertinent usually, and reads dime novels in a corner, or loafs when he is sent on an important errand, is fast disap- pearing, and it is predicted that in the course of time the office girl will have entirely taken his place. The boy that knows more than his parents goes to the wall in the city. Suicess depends upon industry, obedience, economy and purity. Brown hands, clean tongues and hearts are in great demand in the city. A coun...
