A FORTUNE TELLER.
In her lator yoars Mum Honey has given
up family washing far tho mora proHtabla
tiado of fortuno tolling.
Slio Uvea in a small houso on a tack
street. Next door nro lior daughter nml a

porinnnontly screwed up, from much peer
ing Into the darkness of tho future.
Ono day Mrs. Curtis lost the gold thlm
blo that had been hor mother's. Sho valued
it far beyond its intrinsic worth, and In
hor anzloty to rocovcr It sho rosolvod to
consult Main llanoy. Slie hnd nlwavs
looked on Mam ns a dlsroputnblo old Im
postor, nut sho had hoard wonderful tales
of hor skill. v
"1'U glvo you BO contn now," said Mrs,
Curtis whon sho had oxplalnod her errand,
"and if wo find tho thlmblu whero you say
I'll glvo you fa moro."
"AH right, lady. I kin find It sure,"
Mnra answered with tho couUdcnoo to
which sho owes half hor success.
Sho wont to her cook stovo, raised a lid,
pokod tho flro until it was glowing red;
thon spat thrloo into tho bed of coals,
meanwhllo mumbling a charm.
"I hopo tho Judgo will noNOr bear of
this," Mrs. Curtis thought as sho Kit with
hor ekhts tucked up to avoid tho greasy
Mam's yollow foco turned rod in tho
heat boforo sho lifted her boad and spoke.
"I soo n gardlng," sho began, "nn a
light colored houso and a lovely lady in thu
door." Two dollars would havo mudo
Medusa beautiful In Main's oyes.
"I bco the gnrdlng an tho light colored
houso with green blinds. Begin in tho
garrot and look to tho collar. Kf 'taln't
thoro, go In tho gardlng nn dooryard uu
search from tho north to tho south au
frum tho wist to tho west. Scmowbere or
ruthcr you'll llnd that cro thimble."
"Our houso Is light colored and has
groon blinds," said Mrs. Curtis musingly.
"Now, that's our'us," Mam Interrupt
cd. "I dlsromombcr how your house look
ed, Mis' Curtis," which wasery curious
Indeed, as sho passod It every time sho
wont down town. "Now, you Jest look
around your houso an gardlug. Don't you
novor rest till you find that cro tJilmblo,"
Mrs. Curtis wont homo. Sho and hor
"hired girl" searched tho houso fiom nttlo
to collar, whllo tho children craw linl nbout
tho yard, playing they woro snakes and In
cidentally catching heavy colds, but not
finding tho thlmblo for which thoy woro
Sho had qulto ghon up nnd belloted
Mam Honoy to bo an old fraud, when Un

Tho Judgo laughed Incredulously. "Of

In sonio dovlous way Mam Ilaney heard
of tho llndlng of tho thimble. Ono morn
ing sho wont to collect hor debt. Mrs.
Curtis told her that tho thlmblo had been
found by ohanco, that hor maglo had had
nothing to do with Its vecovory.
"But I told you It wai In tho gardlng,"
Mam nnswered, "nn you mild jou'd pay

As It was u warm spring day, hIio went
outside the fonconndsatdowuou tliohcireo
block. Whonovor ono of tho Curtis family
oamo out of doors sho screamed:
"GImmo that aro money. Mis' Curtis
nln't no lady. She's chuitln a poor wom

When tho Judgo uimo homo, his wlfo
told him to send tho mnrshal to arrest her.
"I guess you had better pay her tliat $.',
Fanny," ho suggested.
"XeorI" returned Mrs. Curtis. "Not if
sho sits there nnd Borcochos ull summer."
Mam had returned to her post, whon tho
Judgo oamo out of his door. Sho chal
lenged him fcarlossly.
Ho glancod around fnrtlvoly, put his
hand lu his trousers pookot and brought
out two silver dollars. Ho dropped them
into ono of Main's long nailed qki-As.
"Now, clear out," ho said, "nnd don't ovor
say any moro nbout this nffnlr."
But Main snt still. As sho clinked tho

til bur checks ached. Sho Bottled her elf
moro comfortably. "GImmo that ero sjjl"
sho shrieked with now vigor as hoon as tho
Judgo was out of sight. "Vou uln'fc no
lady, Mis CurtU."
During tho afternoon Mrs. Curtis had
cnllors. Thoy politely ignored thu persist
ent cry from tho horte block, but sho know
thoy would talk of It at tho muct, houso.
Sho was tempted to tell her side of tho
story, but shu woo conscious sho had not

A ship lond of Agateware
would be a big lot for ono
storo even in tho United
States; it's a big lot for Hono
lulu nnd moro than wo receiv
ed, but what wo did get on
two sailing vessels would as
tonish the people if thoy saw
all tho articles in ono pile.
Our stock of Agateware is
selected from "Firsts" not
"Seconds;" tho quality is tho
best that can bo mado and we
sell it at tho picco you used to
pay for the second quality.
This means a saving of 33
por cent, because tho lifo of a
first-class prico of Agateware
is a third longer than ono of
tho second class.
When buying for tho holi
day season there is moro
pleasure in receiving a useful
presont than in a bauble,
livery housewife loves good
China and there is nothing
more beautiful than a set of
Ilaviland. Wo have a com
