THE MIDDLE* AQED MAX.
Drops toto - RecoHeciton a Little Bit Overa
Visit to the Old Home.
"WelL" said the middle-aged man,
"I've been down borne again on my
usual summer visit and had the great
est time this year ever. In fact as
time goes by the old spot seems dear
er and dearer, and recollections tend
erer; and little things to which once
I never gave a second thought, appeal
to me more and more.
4,On the day I got there, this time,
we had cup custards for dinner. Beau
"tiful. they were, too; I have never
v- tasted any cup custards such as moth

*'But there was something wrong
about mine, somehow; what, I couldn't
int first make out; the custard was
atrop? delicious, but there was soine
tuliig wrong somewhere; and present
ly I discovered what it was and I
says to mother:
" 'What Is it, Melancthon?* she says,
and I says:
" 'It's the most beautiful custard I
ever tasted, but you've given lt to me
?*lu a, cup with a handle on lt.'
" "Well, don't you want it In a cup
'.with a handle on It, Melancthon? she
" 'Why, don't you remember,* I says,
that when we used to have cup cus
tards I always used to get the cup
with the broken handle?'
" 'So you did, Melancthon, so you
did!' she said, and that was all she
said; but I am sure you can guess
what she did.
"The next day we had cup custards
Qgoin; and when they came around,
lo, the cup that mine was in was a
cup without a handle. The fractured
surface of a sharp and jagged rem
nant of It that remained, projecting
ifrom the side of the cup, was fresh
j and bright; it had not, on this cup,
been browned over, as the broken
handle on the other had been, with
the heat of many bakings; but still it
was . the., old cup come back again.
' And when I had finished the custard
In it and had grasped the cup around
with one hand and held it up, and
scraped the Inside of it until I had
got the very last speck and then had
licked the spoon, I felt my youth
come back again in childhood's hap
py h 'me."-New York Sun.
Keep Nothing But Good Stock.
Every farmer should be well sup
plied with live stock. No farmer can
afford to farm without the income
that the stock affords. As he must
keep the stock he might .as well make
them a success, and In order for them
to be a success, he must not keep any
more pfock than he can shelter, at
tend to, and feed properly. He must
also raise only the best, for there is
-more money in a thoroughbred animal
than lu a scrub, and they both eat
cs much as another and cost as much

P.CTION TRUTH, AND TRUTH-.
Prof. Moulton, Who Tells a Few Stories of
a Taking Kind.
Professor lt. G. Moulton of the
English Department at the University
cf Chicago has a way of enlivening
his lectures by pointed and homely
"Sometimes we hear as an objection
to- the plot of a first-class novel that
it is utterly improbable," said the
professor a few days ago. "Now the
fact is that the only thing which ls
true ls fiction. There Is nothing so
false as what we call the truth. Facts
always give some loophole of escape.
For instance there was a man that
you ought to know about, who wished
very much to commit suicide. Shock
ing? Yes, to be sure, but the man
was not troubled with a conscience.
The only thing that worried him was
the fear that he should make a fail
ure of his attempt to kill himself. 'I
know myself so well that I feel sure
the thing would be a fiasco,* he al
I ways declared. For thirty years this
conviction was the only obstacle that
stood between that man and death.
"Finally he mustered up the cour
age one day to try to commit suicide.
He went over ail etalls carefully
and took every precaution against
failure. He went to the edge of a
cliff overhanging the sea near his
home. With him he carried a revolver,
a bottle of poison, a rope, and a box
of matches. He tied one end of the
rope around his neck and fastened the
other end to a tree near by. Then he
swallowed the poison, set fire to his
clothes, fired the pistol at his head
and Jumped off the clliT."
Professor Moulton ended his story
here and blandly proceeded to bow
himself out of his class room.
"But, professor, was the man kill
ed?" shouted the overwrought class
of future American novelists.
"By no means," replied the profes
sor in astonishment. n "Excitement
made the man nervous and his pistol
shot went wide of the mark. The
rope caught fire from his burning
clothing, came in two in a trico, and
the man fell into the water and that
.piit out flames. He never was a very
good sailor anyhow and the poison
hardly remained long enough lu his
system to make him dizzy. He was
rescued by an officious fisherman,
who charged $5 for his trouble. And
yet people talk about the improbabil
ities of fiction."-Chicago Inter Ocean.
Women as Baby Photograpners.
Modern photography is making it
possible for the coming men and wom
en, who av. being pictured awake and
asleep, laughing and crying, In the
bath and ot play, to see themselves In
their childhood as other saw them.
Many mothers now keep an album
devoted especially to each child, and
where formerly once a year, or twice
at the most, was regarded sufficiently
frequent to picture the youngsters, the
dally life from the earliest infancy to
college days ls now faithfully record
ed. Many women are taking advant
age of this fad, and are carrying on a
thriving business as baby photograpl
ers, and the multitudes and ea?^fness
of relatives and friends for baby's
picture with papa, with mamma, with
the nurse and alone secure to them no
end of patronage.

Nature Lessons Out of Doom.
Nature classes that meet In the open
air are sources of delight to tho
youngsters who arc fortunate enough
to belong to them. In a lesson over
heard recently, the small uoy'B pro
verbial curiosity was satisfied by
talks upon how the Insects bear,
where tho grasshoppers ears ure situa

the crickets chirp, how many legs
a spider has, where the butterflies
come from, and what makes the katy

Unusual Meld for u Wowan.
Miss Caroline Van Brunt, secretary
of a large copper company, ls also one
of the directors and corporators of the
company, and ls said to know more
about copper, nickel, the general
mining of ores, the source of supply,
production, consumption, tariff, state
of trade etc.. than any other woman
In this country, and probably more
than many men who claim to be ex
perts on the subject. Miss Van Brunt
has studied the problem of rendering
copper fumes innocuous, and lt was
largely through her presentation of
the subject to Congress that to those
establishments requiring it was given
an opportunity to experiment further
with patent smoke consumers and
Business Women of Atlanta.
A large body of the women of Atlan
ta, Ga., attended a mass meeting re
cently In the rooms of the Atlanta
Woman's club for the purpose of or
ganizing a Business Womnu's league,
which promises to be the greatest and
most important organization in that
city. The promoters are a number of
the leading and professional women of
Atlanta, who realize that the increas
ing nunib2rs of women who work
make such an organization necessary.
The immediate objects of the Atlan
ta Business Wowan's league are to se
cure a rest room and restaurant, a
gymnasium and eventually u club
house where working womer, may
have access to all the eomfqi; of
women of leisure and a chane or
self-culture through lectures, m

Loose S Ivr v n\ A? lin.
The tight sleeve has had but a brief
existence in its last revival. All ru
mors hint that larger sleeves are on
the way. and already there Is a dis
tinct fulness at the shoulder. The
elbow sleeves Hare more and more
and arc in many cases slashed al
most to the shoulder on the outer
side, over a full soft undeirslccve.
The loose dnst cloaks with their volu
minous sleeves have prepared the way
for larger coat sleeves, which will be
seen on the fall and winter coats.
Panne velvet ls the milliner's de
cree to. be the most popular material
for autumn and winter hats; and
French makers are showing wonder
fully beautiful velvet flowers, as a
hint of whnt is to be expected later.
A model hot is of panne velvet In
Jacqueminot color, trimmed with Re
naissance lace and a mass of velvet
roses, shading from darkest Jacque
minot to La France pink.
Necktie clasps are very much in
evidence on the fall street costumes.
The fashionable cravat which appears
upon at least three out of every Ave
of these gowns and is most frequently
of black velvet or soft black satin, is
much more effective when drawn
through such a clasp, than when tied,
and the touch of gold harmonizes with
the gold buttons and braid which are
tolerably sure to lurk somewhere
about the gown. Flat and heavy
dead gold, dull silver or gun metal
rings are perhaps tile most knowing
of these clasps; but the jewelers, In
response to the demand, are now
bringing them ' out in jewelled de
signs, and In the antique gold work
that ls a present fad. The latter are
good In style and a single cnbulchon
gem set deeply In the gold and agree
ing wjth the color scheme of the gown
adds to the effect, but the heavy Jew
eled clasps are a trifle too pronounced
and rob the cravat of distinction.
The Use of Fragrant Faits.
Women of today are not as liable
to faint as their grandmothers were,
because they dress more sensibly and
do not wenr as tight dresses or as
tight shoes, and gloves, but it Is a
wise and sensible precaution to keep
fragrant salts on hand. Any salt
loses its strength in a short time. The
simple lavender salts are the most de
sirable of all perfumed salts. These
are easily prepared at home. While
you are preparing a portion of these
salts lt is as easy to make several
bottles or vinaigrettes as one, and fhe
cost ls small. Procure half a dozen
small, clear glass bottles, with close
cut glass stoppers If you wish. A
pretty stopper costs very little pur
chased with the bottles by the half
dozen, and adds considerable to the
value of the vinaigrette as a gift It
is desirable that a vinaigrette be
small, PO lt may be easily carried in
the pocket. Vinaigrettes are often
vary elaborate, decorated with silver,
gold and tren precious stones, but a
tiny bottle of clear glass with a pretty
stopper ls always lu good taste and as
useful as a more ornate one. To pre
pare the salt, procure from a trust
worthy druggist half a pound of car
bonate of ammonia and an ounce and
a half of the liest oil of lavender.
Crush the two together In a mortar,
or In any dish that will mix them.
Set the mixture in a large bowl, which
should be put In a pan of warm water,
covered and set In a moderate oven
for about an hour. Stir the mixture
several times while lt ls heating. It
ls not necessary for the ammonia to
be crushed fine. If lt ls in broken
lumps lt lasts longer. Do not get in
the foolish habit of using a vinai
grette continually. Cases of obstinate
deafness have been nscrlbed to this
case. The salts are also said to have
an injurious effect on the vocal cords
ns well as on the auditory .nerves
when used continually. Even the
odor of flowers, notably the odor of
violets, has been known to cause a
singer temporarily to lose her voice.
Becoming Styles of Coiffure.
We are abandoning the pompadour,
says a Paris correspondent, and for a
truly enchanting fashion-the curl in
the middle of the forehead. The hair
is curled right up In one twist from
the center of the forehead in this new
style, wee tendrills playing lightly up
on the temples. The hair at the sides
ls carried to the back of the' head,
leaving only the tiniest possible pulls
on each side of the face. On the
crown of the head the hair is slightly
parted on one side-merely a sugges
tion of a parting, not a hard line. The
coll at the back Is worn much lower
than heretofore. Coiling lt tip, how
ever, suits so mflby faces that thw
fashion will probably not be univets
Anothei style of coiffure consists
in parting the halt Iii the center ohd
WaVihg it lu large Undulations, Which
lehd themselves to the slightly puffed
sides and upright loops on the top,
and which proclaim their emanation
from the empire period. A very
light, fine euri ou either side softens
the outline of the forehead. It shoull
be noted that extreme smoothness
and a glossy look arc essentials; no
fuzzy or fluffy Appearance ls to bi?
tolerated. A long comb should adorn
the base of the structure; for the day
time lt ls of plain tortoiseshell, but for
full dress an adornment of jewels is
permitted. Small side combs set .out
the side puffs, which, however, should;
not be exaggerated. As for the ondu
l?e, or waving. It is now an Atlantic
billow compared with the little lake
ripples it used to be.
We are promised a return of the em
pire curl. To many women it Is emi
nently becoming, and as to those of
us whom lt docs not suit, we may Ig
nore the curl when it comes, if come
lt docs. An especial coiffure hus been
designed for those no longer In' tko
first bloom of youth. After being
waved, the hair is combed back and
arranged In coils at the crown ot the
head, not quite on the top.
A very becoming way for a girl to"
arrange her hair is to pull a ribbon
through a small diamond buckle, and
to lie it round the coll, so that lt Just.
stands up a little, wee blt above the
fringe. The .ribbon should either be
white or to match the dress.-New
York Commercial Advertiser.
Two Typen of Girl?.
There are two, distinct types of
girls recognized just now, thc girl
who is pretty and the girl who Is
stylish. Of course there are types of
the intellectual and the studious, but
when they ure these they cease to 1)2
called girls, and are given the more
dignified title of women, so the girls
mny readily be confined within the
limits of the two types first mentioned.
The girl who ls pretty seems to have
an invincible weapon In her hands.
She is taught from her infancy that
she is favored above all other girls,
and, alas, by thc law of nature's com
pensation, she generally grows up
without an idea In her fluffy pate, be
yond the best pose for that same pate,
and the best becoming piece of mil
linery with which to adorn IL
The stylish girl Is the one whose
clothes seem made for her alone. She
will take the commonplace hat Of her
pretty sister and placing lt on her
modish head give lt a pat or two
which will transform lt until her neigh
bor will swe;'.r it is imported., Her
gown may be plaiu and cheap, but
they are worn with an Indefinable air
which makes them better looking
than the satins and velvets which the
other woman wears with an 111 grace.
Everything belonging to her-partakes
of her Individuality, until even__thc?
everyday sailor or rough straw is dis
tinguished ns it bangs,on the hall
rack and the fuzzy brown cape which
she dons In wet weather looks more
perky and self satisfied than its neigh
bor, the sealskin, which does not be
long to the stylish girl. It ls some
vugue power within her which enables .
her to select out of the thousand and
one hats at the millinery opening the
very blt of hoad gear which will
make her the cynosure of all eyes.
She may be a millionaire's daughter,
lu which case she ls invariably the
belle of the season, and makes the
very best match, or she may be a shop
girl who sells ribbons and laces by the
yard, in which case her coil of. hair
is the smoothest and best groomed
looking in the days of smooth hair,
and her curled bang the fluffiest and
most ethereal looking In the days of
puffed curls. She has an air which
her envious fellow women would give
half their lives to possess, and which
attracts the admiring eyes of all the
men on the street when she appears.

Tee Estimated Length of a Serpent Whose
Petrified Hud tod Tail Have Been Posad.
l? ages gone by there -were snakes
in Colorado perhaps 100 feet lb length.
Curator Will C. Ferrll, of the State
Historical Society, considers himself
at ?liberty to make this statement, ?s
tba result of recent discoveries made
in ?b? vicinity oi Florence. A huge
monster has beeb discovered which
proves beyond p?rhdventure the snake
stdrJf. Neat Fidrencfej W. F; Masters,
of jVlctbrj ?O?hd part of the petrified
body ?t 6he coiossdi snake. The pre -
historic reptile had a head fully the
BIZO of a ham and about the same
snipe. The exceptionally large eyes
are placed as are those of an ordinary
snake. The stone head is 33x30 Inches.
.??piece of the stone tall found, which
is SC inches long, Indicates that the
reptile must have been 30 Inches in
circumference. Masters seems to
think from the development of the
tall that this particular snake was a
young one, not fully developed. In
(?at case those of the same family
. jolly grown would be larger and much
Tonger. In sending to Governor
?Siomas the description of this 1m
'mrtant discovery Masters says that
.winwill forward a sketch as soon as
Possible. Ferril was asked by Gov
ernor Thomas to use every means at
Us disposal to secure the specimen at
.<mce, together with as many others
from the same locality as possible.
Curator Ferrll thinks that as the os
sified head was found in the sand
stone strata there must be more speci
mens near at hand. These he will at
opee secure, If possible, and will add
them to the State collection. Mas
tera's- letter to Governor Thomas,
which sets forth the first vague and
uncertain facts in this important dis
covery, is as follows:
"Honored Slr: I have recently

It's a long way, with many turns and pitfalls to catch
the refuse and clo? the channel if not most carefully
cleaned out every day.
When this long canal is blockaded, look out for
trouble-furred tongue, bad breath, belching of gases,
yellow spots, pimples and boils, headaches, spitting up of
food after eating-an all-around disgusting nuisance.
Violent pitt poisons or griping salis are danger
ous to ose for cleaning out the bowels. They
force out the obstruction by causing violent
spasms of the bowels, but they leave thc in
testines weak and even less able to keep up
regular movements than before, and make a
larger dose necessary next time.
Then you have the pill habit, which tills moire people
than the morphine and whiskey habits combined.
The only safe, gentle but certain bowel cleansers are
sweet, fragrant CASCARETS, because they don't force
out the foecai matter with violence, but act as a tonic on
the whole 30 feet of bowel wall, strengthen the muscles
and restore healthy, natural action. Buy and try them!
(Look out for imitations and substitutes or you can't get
results. Cascarets are never sold in bulk. Look for the
trade-mark, the long-tailed MCn on the box.) You wi**
