?They've sung tho *ong of the girl In plnk,
And the song of the k?H in white,
But the slnger. are few who have praised
tha true
Goddess of lave and Mght;
Tha household fairy whom we all know,
And knowlng her love her better so?
Tha girl ln the garment of calico.
Dainty and aweet and brlght.
The bloom of her cheeks. th. light ln her
eyes,
Are her beauty and tltle of health;
And day after day ln a modest way
Her neatness 1. better than wealth.
Old-fashloned? Yes, and we wlsh her so,
For Ju.t 11 ke her mother ln calico,
With the gentle tralts of the years ago,
She'. taken our heurtj by stealth.
?o. ln a nectar ?f raaaa 1 pledjce
Our dear girl. ln plnk. and in white;
To their eyes and thclr hair and their ways

For th. girl ln the wrapper of calico,
Dainty and sweet and brlpht.

The Truth About Tobias
IT TOOK Hanora quite a time to find
out tha truth about Tobias. Not
that Tobiae could ordinarily be eon
aidered a mysterioua individual. In
deed, he was precisely the rcverse.
From tha cool dawn hour in whieh
he arose to go forth and driva the
team for Twi.t & T.ifTeta, of whieh
firm he was trusted collector, until his
return at 6:30 to th. modest flat where
|is aister?and supper?awaited him,
his life was a clean and commonplace
page, spread wide for every casual oi*
interested glance. His nights, if lesa
exposed to the are lights of public
acrutiny, might as well have been ao.
For, after eating heartily of the food
Hanora had prepared, and refexring to
tha same in admiring terms, he was
wont to remove his shoes aa unneces
aary impedimenta, placa hia feet in
their well-darned hose upon the chair
"beyant." light his pipe, drink the aol
itary bottle of beer whieh Hanora per
mitted him, and read the mighty accu
mulation of both morning and evening
papers until the autocratie epinatcr
who ruled his nbode suggested "a
decatle." and turmd the iamp low bj
wav of a gentle but quite sutlicient
hint.
Tobias was 40- plus five. He had a
briekdust skin, p.i'.c bfOWB, a pujrna
cious nose, and a BSatla ftf gaeh smldru.
aTBafaalBaj. aposaajetie radiaaee it ex
plained his love for his fellow-men in
general and for Hanora in particular.
Jndeed. bis was the only love that had
ever oome llanoru's way. She had never
been guilty of that form of highway
robbery known as coquetry. Not that
Bhe was un&ophisticated. She knew
that a woman quick of perception and
adroit of nnger may appropriate the
purse of one who walks her way and
auffers incarceration. Aml she knew
also that one who possesses herself of
an unappropriated innseuline heart not
onlj- goea free in the sight of the law,
but glories if she will in her-guile and in
the magnitude of her deeds. Whether
the bonds of inopportunity had ahaek
led Hanora R\an or whethor she had
preferred maiden triumph to the ex
tiltation of matronhood deponent aay
eth not. Anyhow, to get baek to the
truth about Tobias. On one memorable
niidsummer eve he devoured lenaon
pie without protest. Hanora knew he
loati-ed lemnn pie. On the following
Baonttef he meekly ate the Freaeh
toast she set before him, instead of
his regulation potato and rasher. This
was her second test. For Tobias had
franklv declared only two weeks bjm
that he would eat no more Frenrh, or
Flemish. or?no, begorrah?Boer toast.
that was made of stale brearf dipped in
,egg and fried! So there! She began
to feel suspieious. He was a good
brother, but alarmingly docile when
present ed with \ iands for whieh he pos
eessed an aversion.
She waa like the pnrrot whieh its
owner doelared "aaid little but done a
devil of a heap of thinkin*!" She
thought a good deal in thosedays. When
Tobias auBjgeated hringing a friend
home with him to dinner she thought
more than ever, albeit she possibh aaid
less.
"To be bringin' a man here for a
male!" quoth ahe. "What kind of a
inan might he be, now, Tobias?"
"Sthraight as they make >m!"
prompt'.y reapondedTobiaa. "Hedrives
the *ruah' boa. He'a a food wan. Be'?!
relish one of your raspberry rolls?
that he would, Hanora!" Whereat
Hanora blushed in a wintry sunset
aort of way and said he might bring his
friend.
He did bring his friend. And?to
tell the truth?Hanora looked exoeed
ingly well. She had given her blaek
silk skirt a "dip." whatevertbat myste?
rioua phraseology may mean. And
she wore with this a shirt waist of
softeat lawn, whieh she had bought at
quite an nbsurd fisriire because it was
one of the smallest sizes. This she
had duly and delicately laundered. Not
that
"The hou?chold art was the only dower
Bhe would bring for a glft to him she wed."
But the household art ehone up in
resplendence on that particular night.
Never, thought treacherous Tobiaa,
with a glow at his heart, had any man
sueh a sister, an<l if it were not for
the?here he hroke off in an agony of
deception whieh made him temporarily
oblivious of the merits of the rasp?
berry roll.
"You ain't eat a bite!" avowed
Hanora.
Tobiaa made a aweeping gesture
acroaa hia Adam's apple. "Clear to
herel" he declared, with delicioue
aaendaeity.
After rupper they went into the par

No rag time for Hanora.
"JShe's a jewel)'* commented Den
nis Maguire, addressing Tobias Ryan,
when they purted on the sidewalk.
"Aiu't?ain't"?titnidly. "there any
wan a-coortin*!"
"N'ivir a wan!" returned Tobias.
Ba felt so guilty upon his return
he could hardh make the proper re
sponses to the "decade" whieh Hanora
was "giving out." He did not come
home uutil teu o'clock tho following
night ?nor yet the next. He explained
his abseuce by mysterious allusiona
to "caueuses" and "primaries." there
by soothing Hanora and stultifying
lis conscieuee. lt was not until Han
?ra found a rose in the buttonhole of
Iiis eoat one morning and a little lace
trimined handkerchief in his poeket
that her direst doubts were aroused.
But even these Tobias explained away.
"Sure tbe flower eost nothin', Han?
ora. 'Twaa from a bush 1 was pass
in', And the handkerchief was on the
sidewalk. I thought belike you could
make use of it."
11a was rapidly becoming a beauti
fUl liar.
A week later ha refused to go out
with Hanora and Dennis on account
of tha night being damp. He had
rheumatism, he said. So hia siater
and hia friend went to the theater
and Tobias settled himself to the com
poaition of a long and fervent letter,
the accomplishment of whieh neces
sitated frequent reference to the poek?
et dietionary he had bought for this
purpose. To make a long story short
?and it waa not such a long story
when all was said?Hanora married
Dennis Maguire. Tobias was desolate
?discon.olata. Ha might go to llva
witb them. Dennis had won a treas
ure. Yes, he might go to live with
them after awhile. For the present
ha would take his meals at a reatau

Greatest fiame of Poker
THE two men approached the card
tablc reluctantly, without that
eagerness ihowo by most persons about
to ait into a game of poker. These men
aeemed burdened almoKt by the famoua
"weight of centuries" that M. Millet
and Mr. Markhara exploited with ao
much aorrow and proiit. After they
had sat down, they did not take up any
pack of cards. Though there were no
cards on the table, they began to bet.

"I rajse yon one cent," sighed John
Oxheart, the third of that name. And
hia friend said, gloomily:
"I see you and go you one better."
*'I ralse you the limit,*' remarked
Oxhtart, and George Flint the third
again replied:
*'I aec your raise and raise you all
the way."
So the game went on until ten beti

American history knows full well the
battle to whk-h the writer refers. I'.y
hia side fell Lieut. Col. Flint. Theii
deatha ended the first act of the coin
1'ilv that became almost a tragedy.
Kight years earlier, in 1656, these two
galiant \ irgiuia men had met at a

an hour or BO, when .Maj. Oxheart had
about eijfht eeata of t'ol. Flint's money
(they liaii not thee their taal aoilitary
titles) it was the major's turn to bet.
He bet the limit; and the raptain aaw
him and raised the limit. Two or three
breathleaa minutes pa^^ed dariac
whieh eaeh in turn aaw his friend's

been $1.58 ou the board.
The major evidently took in ill part
the pertinacity of his friend.
"'Veh betteh dro]? out. (Jeorge," he
said. "1've got yeh kilt."
*'l won't dropoutyet awhile. m'Ii,-' b*B>

"Don't yeh reply to me in tha' tone

stay j'ou' hand out."
The major swore a great oath that
be could and would beat theoaptaia'a
hand. and both friends glared augnly
at eaeh other across the table. They
stood like that for so long that the
hotel keeper, aroused at the unwonted
quiet, entered the room to see what was
tbe matter. He ealled help; the two
friends, who had become almost cata
leptic, were taken apart, and trouble
was averted for the time. But Capt.
Flint bade the tavern keeper to seal
hia hand of cards in a package, an ?
saw it done before he left the hote".
Maj. Oxheart saw his hand sealed in a
aimilar package.
A few days later the two frlenda
tnet again, and after some talk re
turned to the game. The hands, atill
sealed up, were produced by the hotel
keeper, and the game began where it
had left off. Disagreement again broke
up the game, and again the boniface,
Col. Carter, took charge of the hands,
aealing them in aecond euvelopea. So
for flve years the game went on, never
finiahed, and at eaeh aeparation Col.
Carter sealed the hands in additional
envelopea.

eonfest, But not for ioog. Agatn ana

euinstaiiees. it w.is on!y natural that
the two lieirs should be represented
by one peraoa. (ol. Knraughtv -Darby
related the faets in the ease t<f the
two young men and left it to their
conseienees to lead them to do what
should be done. He knew well what
they would do. They went on with
the game! The same rules stood;
they began where their fnthers had
left off. The proajreaa made was lit?
tle and slow, for their altered circum
atances kept them apart much of tha
time.
In time they married and had sons;
to the eldest son each man told the
story of the great game; and it ia
these men, grandsons of the original
"players, that earried on the game.
Every week if they could get together
they met and made ten bets. Neither
faltered, though both knew'that when
the end should come one of them
would be ruined for life. But still
they played on.
After the stenographer had gone
they sat down idly at the tablc and
called for refreshments. They were
still diseussing the market, for they
were partners, one llving in this eity,
tha other in Chicago, when a cry of
fire rang through the hotel. They es
caped with their lives, not remember
ing until too late that on the table
lay the record book in whieh were put
down every het that they, their fath
era and their grandfathers had mada
on the long-dealt hands. Their first
feeling was one of dismay. Then,
aimultaneosly, over each man s faca
came a look of relief, of joy.

George Flint telegraphed at once to

Carter, esquires.of Richmond, who soon
appeared in the city with a parcel?
the two paekages containing the
hands over whieh so many thousand
bets had been made. Solemnly, as if
at the reading of a will, the paekages
were opened. F.aeh was marked on
