Disagreeable Experience te Two In
The woman who had just purchased
a "transformation" had a rather dis
agreeable experience the first time
the wore It to church. Happening to
bow too low at one point of the aerr
Ice. her bat slid off. carrying her wig
with It and exposing the little wisp of
hair which was all that was left of
her natural crown of glory and which
was screwed up in a most unbecoming
fashion. A relative, kneeling beside
her, madV a dive for the chapeau and
succeeded In recovlng and replacing
It before ita loss had been noticed.
But the "transformation" had disap
peared. After awhile a man In tte
pew In front reached for his handker
chief, which he bad placed Inside his
hat on hassock. His hand became
entangled In something which appar
ently moved. It was the "transforma
tion," but he thought only of mice,
and gave vent to his surprise and dis
comfiture in some tinnielodlous sound
that greatly scandalized the congregation.

The late Rev. It. R. Howard, of
Newton. Mass., a good old preacher ot
the Methodist persuasion, officiated
one day at a funeral at Auburndale,
and at the close had a word of Inquiry

With many of those present.
Among others he approached a lady,
stranger to him. who was visiting
In the neighborhood, and. after shak
ing hands, asked ber if she was on
the way to heaven.
"Yes," she promptly answered, "and
if you come that way I should be
pleased to have you call."
The good old man. horrified at such
eeming levity, turned away, without
reply, when a friend, sitting near, re
monstrated with Mr. . who, still
more horrified at ber mistake, said
she understood him to ask If she was
on her way to Hudson, where she

Possibly by reason of some mysteri
ous defect in the national character
Americans seem to have little appreci
ation of the value of trecB. The des
truction of f uresis has gone on apace
for many years, and even now that the
absolute necessity of protecting the re
maining tracts is generally recognized,
it Is only with great difficulty that
legislation to this eud is secured. Al
though the establishment of Arbor day
has been regarded as an effective
means for cultivating the appreciation
of trees, there Is siill nothing like the
sentiment there oukM to be against
their wanton destruction.
Just Missed It.
An elderly woman who had, during
' the course of a somewhat eventful
' life, buried four husbands, encounter
ed at the nates of the cemetery where
they reposed an old but timid lover,
whom she had not seen for ears. She
took him Inside and showed him not
without a feeling of pride the well
kept tombstones of her former lords
and masters. "Ah, James," she re
marked, feelingly, "you might have
been lying there today if you had
only had a little more courage."
Mr. Campbell is a splendid harac
ter and in the Eighth Ward has
aluas stood for the negro.
We do not believe at this off year
that there should be u change in the
