TIII3 "KISSABIiR" WOMAN.
Ella Whoolcr "Wilcox Tries Her Ilnnd nt
Analyzing II r Charms.
Ladles' Horuc Journal.
Then there Is the "klssablo" woman. Her
size, age, tints, features, disposition, charac
ter ono and all havo seemingly nothing to
do with her charm. All you are conscious of
In her presenco Is tho desire 1o takoherln
your arms and UIss her. She mny bo abso
lutely devoid of personal beaut, and not
young, and yet nine men and a half and
seven women out of each ten will want to
kl6d her If they are In her prebeneo five min
utes. Sometimes sho Is good and kind and
unselfish, and possessed of beauty; and then
sho is always breaking hearts without mean
lug to do so, and winning love sho cannot
return, and incurring criticism sho docs not
deserve. Sho sees more beautiful women giv
ing moro encouragement to men thau sbo
gives, and indulging in far moro desperate
flirtations without causing any such disaster
as sho causes by ono kind, sweet smile; and
she cannot understand it all, at least not un
til sho has had all aorta of trouble out of it.
But tho fact is that the men who nro quite
hardened to flirtations with tho merely beau
tiful women lose their heads In au insane de
sire to seize the klssablo girl in their arms.
Women who do not possess this charm, and
who play a bold game of flirtation without
incurring any such risks and dangers, find It
impossible to explain tho effector the klssablo
girl upon her admirers. They think she must be
u very deep and adroit siren at heart, while In
fact she is often frankness personified. Sho is
inclined to become somewhat selfish, however,
as timo passes, in her love of admiration, and
to take as her natural right moro Jove thau
belongs to her. But sho is never malicious or
intentionally unkind. Sho feels sorry for her
lovers after she has won them, and she never
wounds another woman if sho can help It with
out a too great sacrifice of tho lovo and devotion
which is her native element. She Is full of
lovo herself, and her friendships aro inclined
to bo as ardent as tho loves of the "handsome"
woman. Her rejected lovers become her
friends almost always, and her husband wor
ships her and finds her a better wife than sho
was a sweetheart. If she marries a man
strong and tactful enough to keep her entire
heart she becomes a great favorite with her
own sex, for women have always been in
clined to adoro herwhenthey wero"not jealous
of her Influence over men.
I place the klssablo woman among my lus
cious roses with now and then a hidden
thorn my spicy carnations, wherein a bee
may be concealed, and my fragrant magnolias.
THE MAN WITH PRETTY HANDS
And tho Curious Way in Which He Got
Ono of Them Crushed.
M. Quad in :Now York World. .
Tho lastcnr ou a Bridge train the other
day was just comfortably filled and moving
from the Brooklyn side when I noticed a
young man on the seat opposite. Ho was
a good-looking, well-dressed chap, but his
hands were tho main feature. They were
long and slender, like a real-born lady's,
and he must havo spent a great deal of
time on his finger-nails.
I was still looking at his hands and thinking
how many women had envied him their
possession when he cave his spring overcoat,
which he was carrying on his arm, a llirt to
brim; It partly across the legs of tho man on
his right, and at the same time one of those
pretty hands was lost sight of. His neighbor
was a big, 6turdy citizen of middle ace, who
had on eye-glasses and was reading a paper,
and appeared oblivious of what was going on.
Was the young mau with tho pretty hands a
pick-pocket? Ho held au envelope in his
left hand and seemed to be trying hard to de
cipher the address on it, but just the same
I saw his right hand carefully moving
under the overcoat. I was certain now, but
who of us Is going to raise a row in such a
public place mle6s to save his own watch
or wallet? I wondered that the big man
held his paper so stiffly, and kept bis eyes
so long on one spot, and I half felt ho ought
to pay the penalty of his carelessness.
We had just passed the piers on tho New
York side when the big man dropped his left
hand, quietly seized upou something, and I
knew by tho way he shut his teeth and flubbed
up that he was using all the muscles of his
hand and arm to grip something. Then I
beard a cracking, crunching sound, and I
looked into tho young man's face to find It as
white as flour, while bo was biting his lips as
if to repress a scream of pain. Ho was lying
back In a half faint when the train stopped,
and tho big man turned his head aud gave
him one brief glance and passed out.
"Shall I help you out?" I asked of the
"If you please." he quietly answered.
"Which way?" as wo walked toward tho
"I'll o to a surgeon's," ho said, as ho
braced up and let go my arm and held out
that finely-moulded digit.
It looked like a paw. I believe every bono
In It had been crushed by that powerful grip I
A Great Mistake.
Many people In Washington aro using al
leged mineral waters and paying exorbitant
prices therefor under tho impression that
they possess great curative properties. The
fact of tho matter Is that they possess those
properties only In proportion to their purity,
those containing tho least mineral or other
matter meeting with tho best success und pro
ducing tho best results. The proof of this is
shown conclusively by tho great benefit and
numerous cures obtained by tho use of Ta
koma water, which is tho purest water ever
discovered. While but a short time has passed
since the wonderful purity of tho water has
been known and the water been on tho
market, the company already havo received
numerous testimonials from those whom tho
water has benefited and cured. In order that
all may use this wonderful water tho company
havo placed tho price at 10 cents per gallon,
delivered to any part of the city, and will
gladly furnish any ono a free sample on
receipt of name aud address at their office and
depot, which Is at 020 F street northwest.
