Cupid can thrive almost anywhere.
T!he distance from Hoboken to Chicago
is, lot us say, 1,000 miles.
Long distance telephone rates are $1

a five minutes' talk with Chicago $10.
Oh, lovel Oh, rapture!
As she walked trippingly along Wa

Harold and Hoboken, her fluttering
heart was startled by her eyes falling
on one of those familiar long distance
telephone signs consisting principally
of a blue bell.
Ordinarily a bluebell reminds one of
Scotland, but in this case it reminded
her of Hoboken.
"Oh, Harold!" she twittered all to
her dear little self. "Oh, Harold!"
Then, without further explanation ex

"How perfectly delighted he will be to

into the telephone box and rang up Ho

HOW TO CURE YOURSELF WHILE
The tobacco habit grows on a man until his
nervous system is seriously affected, impair
ing health, comfort and happiness. To quit
suddenly is too severe a shock to the system,
as tobacco to an inveterate user becomes a
stimulant that his system continually craves.
"Baco-Curo" is a scientific cure for the tobacco
habit, in all its forms, carefully compounded 1
after the formula of an eminent Berlin physi
cian who has used it in his private practice
since 1872, without a failure. It is purely vege
table and guaranteed perfectly harmless. You <
can use all the tobacco you want while taking c
"Baco-Curo." It will notify you when to stop. -
We give a written guarantee to cure perma- c
neutly any case with three boxes, or refund
the money with 10 per cent, interest. "Baco-
Curo" is not a substitute, but a scientific cure,
that cures without the aid of will power and
with no inconvenience. It leaves the system t
as pure and free from nicotine as the day you t
took your first chew or smoke.

Ihe "Pull Back" Threatened Again—How
to Avoid Gaps.
Fashion has seldom been less absolute
than at present, and never was greater
latitude allowed in the matter of skirts.
Of oourso they all approximate to the stone
model—they flare at the foot and are close
at the hips. The newest styles have godeta
at the back only, but nevertheless those
having godets all around are still worn by
fashionable women who prefer them. As
long as the circumference Is maintained at
about five yards fancy may be indulged to
It looks now as if skirts would slowly
shrink to the eclskin stylo again without
an intermediate season of the old fash
ioned full skirt, which at one time seemed
on the point of being revived. Of all am-
TOTING GIKL'S GOWN.
ple skirts the full one is the most artistic
and becoming. If it is not stiffened, as
our grandmothers' were not, it falls in
beautiful folds, and the fullness springing
out about the hips makes the waist appear
The fullness at the back of the latest
skirts is not laid in plaits, but is gathered
into very narrow compass, perhaps an inch
and a half or two inches on each side of
the back opening. Tho back opening it
self, which is always treacherous even
with the most careful arrangement of
small hooks and loops to keep it closed,
can be avoided by leaving open the top of
the left hand seam that joins the side
breadth to the back breadth. This is far
less likely to gape. Better yet, If there is
any trimming, or if there are revers or
straps at the top of the tablier seams, the
opening of the skirt may be in front, con
cealed by the decoration. In this latter
case the wearer is quite easy minded and
has no fear of an expose of white petticoat
—an annoyance only second to the slip
ping down of the waistband.
A picture is given of a summer costume
for a young girl. It is of linen, having
an openwork embroidery pattern, and is
made over pink silk. The godet skirt is
untrimmed. The bodice is open in front
over a full chemisette of pink silk. Large
revers of pink silk are turned back over
plaitings of pink silk gauze. The full
sleeves reach to the elbow. Tho belt is of
pink silk. Jcdic Ciiollet.
ROUTED IN HIS ATTACK ON THE

the other evening as he laid aside his

"But men spell every word correctly,
I suppose?" sarcastically queried Mrs.
"They do. It seems to come perfectly
natural to them. It isn't a woman's
fault, perhaps. It may be that nature
meant it that way. Now you can pnt
down the word 'destruotibility.' "
"I'm not putting down any more

"I spelled every one of them correct

Mra Bowser—perfectly natural. I was

"Oh, indeed! It's funny how many
mistakes you made afterward—when
we were engaged, for instance."
"Mistakes in spelling? Be careful,
Mrs. Bowser! Don't lot your anger lead
you to prevaricate. I think I wrote you
two or three little notes while we were
engaged, and I'll bet a million dollars
to a cent that every word was correctly

KLEPTOMANIACS ARE LISTED.
Bhj Stores Collect the Names of Those
Who Should Be Watched.
It will doubtless be astonishing to
(hose who have not studied the question
to learn that kleptomania has grown so
much during the last few years that
dry goods merchants have, so to speak,
formed a co-operative union of self pro
tection against the evil. Shoplifters are
easily dealt with and' disposed of, as
they are generally of the class who can
be punished to the full extent of the
law, but the kleptomaniac is usually a
woman of refinement, good family and
possessed of ample means, which per

that in tho majority of the stores
tnore is a book kept in the private office
of the firm in which are written tile
names of the women who are known to
be thus afflicted, and when they are
caught in the act a hill for the goods
stolen is sent to the husband, father or
the person who has made himself re
sponsible for the things taken. It was
found necessary to do this after two or
three arrests had been made and the
culprit found, upon investigation, to be

not only necessary for the protection of
the merchants against lesr, by the theft, j
but it was also more imperative from.
the fact that these exposures endangered
his business. After such an arrest and
the consequent publicity the family of
the accused were very loath to trade at
that particular store, and the with
drawal of such patronage meant loss of
thousands of dollar.; to the proprietor.
This explanation was given me by the
superintendent of ono of the largest de
partment store.'- - , where, after a thorough
canvassing of the principal retail stores
in the city, I found that it was no racro
gossip as to tho exigence of this hcok,

Attar of Rose.
The rose, the queen of flowers, that
has been said to preserve ' 'all the fra- "
grance of summer wheu summer is
gone," yields its fragrant attar or
otto to the villagers of Turkey and
the peasant proprietors of Grasse,
Cannes, Nice and the Valois in no nig
gardly quantity. Yet the true attar does
not satisfy the needs of the toilet. Pure
attar of roses is of extremo rarity, and
is worth its weight in gold, the rose
attar of commerce being largely adul
terated with sijidnl, or with attar of rose
geranium, which is largely grown for
the purpose in France and Turkey. The
characteristic rose, scent is shared by
Paxmia albiflora fragraus (an ally of
the lovely rose scented china peonies
of our gardens), the root of Rhodiola
rosea (a species of seclnin growing on
damp rocks on the high mountains of
Scotland, Ireland aud in the north of
England, and ou sea cliffs), aud by the
rasped wood of the Brazilian tulip tree.
