From El Porvenlr.
If a man smokes his cigar only enough to keep
It lighted and relishes taking it out of his mouth
to watch the curl of smoko in the air set him
down as an easy-going man. Beware of tho
man who never releases his grip on the cigar and
is indifferent whether it burns or not; ho Is cool,
calculating, and exacting. The man that smokes
a bit, rests a bit, and fumbles tho cigar more or
less Is affected by circumstances. If tho cigar
goes out frequently the smoker has a whole
souled disposition, is a "hail fellow well met,"
with a lively brain, glib tongue, and generally a
fund of capital anecdotes. A nervous man who
fumbles his cigar a great deal is a sort of popin
jay among men. Holding tho cigar constantly
between his teeth, chewing it occasionally, and
not caring if It bo lighted at all aro the charac
teristics of men who have tho tenacity of bull
dogs. Beautiful Paulino Markharu has never scored
a prcater success than as Faust, Jr., In "Temp
tation" at Kernan's.

A Jnrmncso Who Ilns Divorced Thlrty-
flvo "Wlvos anil Is Only X'orty Yours Old.
From tho London Times.
A natlvo Japanoso paper mentions a caso of
a man aged forty this year, living In tho pro
vince of Bizen, who has married and divorced
thlrty-fivo wives, and is now married to tho
thirty-sixth. IIo was first married at eighteen,
and tho reason nsslgned for this extraordinary
example of inconstancy is that ho has a younger
sister of extremely jealous and rancorous dis
position, who, from the moment that a brldo
enters tho house, institutes a system of perse
cution which soon drives the unhappy woman
to ask her husband for a divorce. Tho husband
is helpless to restrain the vagaries of his sister,
and cannot turn her out, so tho wretched busi
ness goes on year after year. Tho natlvo chron
icler adds a circumstance which is Improbable,
oven In tho East. Ho says that in two cases
the bildes, arriving at the door of their future
home, changed color, ana declaring that they
recognized tho house ns ono whero they hail,
already passed some months of most mlscrablo
wedlock, fled without further parley.
Commenting upon this story, tho Japan Mail
says that, whether accurate in all respects or
not, It Illustrates tho dlffercnco between Japan
ese and English fashions in respect of marriage.
Among tho lower orders in Japan sentiment Is
seldom allowed to play any Influential part in
the arrangements preliminary to matrimony.
In many cases the man nnd tho woman havo
never seen each other until they aro formally
brought together with tho object of securing
their consent to become husband and wife, and
it rarely happens that either is so impolito as to
conceive or admit any disagreeable impression
after this interview. Tho higher tho social
scale the more attention is paid to tho fancies
of tho man, and of lato thoso of tho women also
arc beginning to bo regarded. But tho princi
ple underlying tho wholo marital relation In
Japan seems to bo that tho affection which
really survives tho passage of years and makes
married life happy is not tho love which pre
cedes union, but the respect, esteem, and sense
of mutual helpfulness that grows up.af ter it.
In short, marriage in Japan is n preliminary ex
periment, whereas in tho West it is a final con
tract. At tho same time to bo divorced by her
husband is a dlsgraco to a Japaneso wife, and to
divorce his wifo without reasonable cause is a
disgrace to a husband.
HIS WEAKNESS FOR WOMEN.
Stories to Show tho Gcrtimn Monarch Is a

From a Berlin Letter.
In spite of tho fact that tho young Gorman
Emperor has a shriveled arm, necessitating the
liso of an eating instrument, which Is In reality
a combined knlfo and fork, or fork sharpened on
ono edge for cutting purposes, he is, among his
intimates, a jolly, good fellow, fond of nil tho
pleasures of life, and much given to practical
Joking and nousenso in general. His left arm,
tho shrlvolcd one, is not only considerably
shorter than tho other, but is almost absolutely
without strength. The only uso ho can put it
to is to remove his cigar or cigarette. However,
tho right nrm Is endowed with extraordinary
strength and vigor, nnd this youthful monnrch
is not averse to putting It to n very noble uso at
times, to wit, euclrcllng a taper waist. During
tho trip to Norway this summer ho took great
plensuro in ranging about incog., and ono day
an officer of tho imperial yacht had tho inlsfor
tuno to como face to faco with tho young Em
peror when tho latter had a very pretty girl by
his side. What was to bo done ? It was too
lato to turn back. To halt, faco front, and
saluto would put tho youthful monarch in a bad
fix. Under theso circumstances the officer
turned his back' and pretended to bo gazing
into a shop window. Suddenly ho folt a sharp
pinch on his arm and heard a voico whispering:
"You did that very nicely. Try to find as
pretty a clrl as I have. You havo leave of ab
sence until to-morrow morning." Tho Em
peror's special chum is Count "Eulcnburg, and
tho two friends, attired in tho stylo of well-to-do
citizens, take great delight in knocking
about tho streets of Berlin, arm in arm, smoking
cigarettes and ogling tho girls. Nor Ishoabovo
tuo indiscretion ot coming to a nait and naving
a friendly chat when ho hears a cocotte cry out:
"Oh, look at thb handsome blonde 1"
Worse Than Washington.
From tho St. Louis Republic.
Tho Man-About-Town doesn't often leave tho
classic shades of tho "Future Great," but busi
ness recently called him to Philadelphia. Ho
attended a theatre ono evening during his stay
there, and after leaving his friends who had ac
companied him he met a young man at his hotel
and tho two started out for supper. It was
then a little after midnight, but, not knowing
tho ways of tho Quaker City, and paying no at
tention to tho ominous stillness and tho absence
of lights, which indicated that tho good citi
zens wero sleeping, the two wandered about to
tho evident consternation of a sleepy police
man or two encountered on tho streets traversed.
A long round failed to discover an eating-house
of any description, and finally the two found
themselves at tho hotel again.
"My dear fellow," said tho night clerk, pa
tronizingly, in answer to a question, "you don't
know Philadelphia. Why, there is not an all
night restaurant in tho entiro c!t3T."
"How many inhabitants has Philadelphia?"
inquired the startled Man-About-Town.
"Two," observed a bell boy, who had been a
listener to tho dialogue, "George W. Chllds
and John Wanamaker."
Tho Dress of a London Brlde.
Tho wedding dress worn at a recent fashion
able London wedding, that of Lady Helen Dun
combo and Sir Edgar Vincent, K. C. M. G., is
described as a chef d'dcuvre by tho correspondent
of tho Philadelphia Telegraph. The gown itself
was of dead-whito satin, very trying to most
girls, but admirably becoming to the Lady Helen.
It was made quite simply, without the Medici
collar so popular among brides during the last
two years, but having a frill of point do gazo
round tho neck, slightly draping the bodice and
finishing In a point at the waist. A girdlo of
silver rings, formed of sequins, was passed twlco
round the waist and fell in long ends, finished
off with, tassels, to the iicm of tho skirt. But it
was In tho train that lay tho novelty of this wed
ding dress. It hung loose from the shoulders,
fastened by ropes of white silk and silver, and
was lined with white satin. It was composed of
rich whtto silk, brocaded with' an exquisite de
sign ot St. Joseph lilies. Theso wero outlined lu
raised embroidery, tho flowers being worked in
white silk, tho leaves and stalk in green, and tho
stamens in yellow. Tho effect was most beauti
ful, and was heightened by tho bridal bouquet
being composed entirely of natural St. Joseph
lilies. Tho wedding veil of Brussels point laco
was fastened by a diamond star, a present of tho
bridegroom, aud the only other ornament worn
was :i diamond necklace.
