Senator Heyburn of Idaho, spoken of
by many persons as the "chief objec

of his characteristic protests against
pending legislation, and, with several
colleagues, was at luncheon In the
restaurant at the capltol. In the party
were former Senator Hale of Maine
and Senator Bailey of Texas. The con
versation had drifted to certain of the
president's Judicial appointments.
"Well," remarked Mr. Bailey, finish

I'll bet will pass without objection
from our friend Heyburn."
"I'm not a betting man," replied Mr.
Hale, "but I'll wager you haven't"
"How much?" demanded Mr. Bailey.
"Well say the price of the lunch."
"Done," said Mr. Bailey. Smiling,
he threw a crisp $10 yellowback on
the table. "Heyburn can't object to
the passage of that," he' added trium

Interesting Facts About the Value
of Oriental Rugs.
THIS GAME IS A PUZZLER.

For tha Qirl Who Motors.
Dear Elsa Well, dear, I have Just
bought a new rug. an oriental, for the
sitting room, and I wish you could
see what a beauty it Is. Extravagant!
No, I don't think I have been splurg
ing. I know that most people not over
burdened with riches select the cheap
er domestic rugs, believing that money
would be wasted in the higher priced
oriental varieties, however much they
may appeal to one's artistic taste.
Now, I argue that the difference In cost
per square foot between the average
oriental and the home product amounts
to little in comparison with the differ
ence in endurance. Of course the proper
judgment in selecting a rug must be
exercised, and the fact is often over
looked that while the nap of the do
mestic rug is worn down to the warp,
the oriental has been improving in
color and sheen as well as in value. -
In buying first select what pleases
you in size, color and design, then
take time and go over it as thoroughly
as a horseman would over a horse
which he contemplates buying. Lift
It to test the weight Oriental rugs
are much heavier In proportion to their
size than the domestics. See if it lies
straight on the floor and has no folds.
Take hold of the center and pull it
up into a sort of cone shape. If com
pactly woven It will stand alone Just
as a piece of good silk will. Examine
the pile and see whether it is long,
short or worn in places down to the
warp threads; also note the number of
knots to the square inch and whether
or not they are firmly tied.
Separate the pile, noting whether the
wool Is of the same color, but of a
deeper shade near the knot than it is
on the surface, or if It is of an en
tirely different color. Vegetable dyes
usually fade to lighter shades of the
original color, while anilines fade to
different colors. A good way to test
the material, this very clever Bales-
man told me, is to lightly burn the
surface with a match, thus producing
a black spot .If the wool is good
the singed part can be brushed off
without the least trace of the burn.
Now, I am sure by this time I have
convinced you that in the long run put
ting money in an oriental rug is cheap

It seems to me that after I had fin
ished my housecleanlng this spring
there was less room than usual In
which to dispose of the winter's cloth
ing. One's clothes have such an un
comfortable habit of accumulating, and
folding garments make them look so
shabby, so I have devised a scheme to
save room that 1 am quite proud of.
Every one is in a hurry nowadays, and
those with time on their hands prefer
to do something more valuable with
it than searching for their attire In
packed wardrobes and shelves, so I'm
thinking of having my Idea patented.
Here It is:
We had a lot of old books that were
reposing in two tall bookcases in the
library. These I sold to a secondhand
bookseller, and the space thus gained I
now use in which to hang Dick's best
clothes and my own smart frocks.
How? Simply by having a rod run a
