of Troy) inighi conquer for all he cared, when the
leader of the Greeks was BO mean!"
"You see, A.-liillcp loved himself better than his
country." said Jean.
"Only for a time; be did fight later." argued
Jack. "But thai is only one of the many things
that happened that last year of the siege. Troy
fell, through the wit and wisdom of Ulysses."
"Ulysses is Latin for Odysseus." struck In Jean.
"When he saw." went on Jack, "how strong the
walls of Troy were he thought out a very clever
plan. He made the Greeks (instruct a big wooden
horse. Inside its hollow body he stored some
brave Greek soldiers. Then he made all the other
Greeks grot into their boots, as if tho;- were going
away. The poor Trojans took it all in. and when
in the dark ni«ht the wooden horse was rolled up
to thoir pates, they believed the gods had coma to
visit them, and th< y opened their strong gates, and
let the wonderful big liorse inside. Then, of*
course, the Greeks sprang out. rushed to the grates
to hold them open, crying out to their friends In
the ships. These came flying up, and the poor,
bewildered Trojans were soon Conquered. The
walls of Troy were pulled down. Priam, the old
King: Hecuba, with Polyxena and Cassandra, two
of her daughters, were taken rtsoners and carried
away to Greece, and so, Troy fell."
"But what became of the beautiful Helen?"
asked Mrs. Bobbington.
"Oh: Menelaus ook her back to Sparta." cried
Jean. "But. Jack. I did not think you would
have left out that fijrhi between Hector and
Achilles. Now, I'll tell that to-morrow night,"
she said to her parents. "I'm onjy a girl, I know,
but that was a grand fight."

A DESTRUCTIVE KITTEN.
Dear IJttle Men and Little Women: Perhaps
you would like to liear out our pussy and our

goldfinch. Our kitty was very playful and also
very destructive. The goldfinch and two canaries
were put into a large cage. They got along very
nicely, but the goldfinch was boss. If he wanted to
eat first he chased the others away. Now, our kitty
often pat on a chair looking at the bird 3. and wbea
ever we saw him do this -.\e scolded him. Then he
wxuld run in a corner. At night he would sleep in
the kitf-hf-n wherf' the birds were. One night he
jumped on the gas rani?e, thinking he oouM get at
the birds, but the cage hung too high.- In the morn
ing I smelt gas. for the kitten must have turned
on the gas valve in jumping off the range. Of
course the kitten was alive, for he had run into
another room, but uhen I looked in the cage I
found the birdies dead at the bottom of it. Next
day we gave pussy away and never heard anything

more Illuminating than the lace show opened
this week. H6re, in glass cases and hanging
upon the. walls, are priceless examples of the

lace nan carried out in as fine a thread as tho
Venetian and its background wis as intricate,
as free and a« unconventional as the French.
Lace was then at it» zenith. No court dress
waa complete without frills and flounces of it,
and a cleverly contrived collection of engrav

and beauties in lace trimmed milts and robes.

In fact, lace originally, like painting, was ec
clesiastical in use and object. Just as the first
statues were of gods and goddesses and the first
paintings of madonnas and saints the first nne
laces were for altar cloths and priestly vest
ments. In most of the earliest specimens of
lace the design is taken from the Blbl*. and the
embroideries that preceded lace- the drawn
thread and darned linen work— show the same
intention and inspiration. Here is a curious
piece of anolejit needlework, in which the design

In this wonderful world there were beings like

the Virgin, the figures being very large and
very naVf in line, but beautiful In execution and
extremely devotional in feeling, the spirit of
mediteval art being in every stitch.
Another fragment of lace of this same period
shows that the laoemaker was not convinced
that color was as unnecessary' In her art as in
sculpture, and a Crucifixion shows the heads of
the four nails worked In dark blue, while a few
lurid lines In bright red mark the bleeding side
and the wounds in feet and hands. The same
groping after color effects is shown in another
piece of French lace, irr which white and black
are mingled, light (the design) being; in white
thread, and shade (the background) In black.
To this period also belong some rich gold laces
which maintained their popularity and were
kept in request by the court funct'ons at which
their glittering webs lent a stately splendor.

All this wonderful world was the hollowest
And its trees and its flowers were but paint.
Its people were nothing but women and men—

longing to the same city. These hangings and
fragments of Lyons velvet show how design waa
added to the rich silken tissue by an ingenious
artist named Gregolre. His process waa to dye
before weaving the threads of silk and then to
produce his pictures. Gregoire waa protected
to some extent by Napoleon, but died in ex

of his invention. He produced a series of
pictures which he copied from Raphael and
other Italian masters, choosing generally a>
single figure with classical draperies. This he
reproduced on a soft halfton# ground with
extraordinary success, the pile of th* velvet
