THE .MIDDLE'AGED mAX.
Drops Into. Recoiled Iso a Little Blt Overa
Visit to the Old Hone.
"Well," said the middle-aged man,
Tve 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.
"On the day I got there, this time,
wc had cup custards for dinner. Beau
,ti?ul. they were, too; I have never
. tasted any cup custards such as moth
?. er makes; and these were the best of
her make; rich and delightful, as al
?"But there was something wrong
about mtae, somehow; what, I couldn't
at first make out; the custard was
, simply deUcloas, but there was some
?ulng 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 it 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
j what she did.
*The next day we had cup custards
again; 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
. from the side of the cup, was fresh
and bright; lt 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 lt
was ' thc, 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 lt up, and
scraped the inslue 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 home."-New York Sun.
Keep Nothing But Good Stock.
Every farmer should be well sup
plied with Uve stock. Xo 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 stock t um 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 in a scrub, and they both eat
as much as another and cost as much

POTION TRUTH, ANO TRUTH-%
Peol Moulton, Wbo Tells a Few Stories ot
a Taking Kind.
Professor lt. G. Moulton of the
English Department at the University
of 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 ls utterly improbable," said the
professor a few days ago. "Now the
fact la that the only thing which is
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 tc commit suicide. Shock
lng? Yes, to be sure, but the man
was not troubled with a conscience.
The only thing that worried him was
thc fear that he should make a fail
ure of his attempt to kill himself,
know myself so well that I feel Bure
the thing would be a fiasco,* he al
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 all the details carefully
and took every precaution against
failure. He went to the edge of
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
i clothes, fired the pistol at his head
and jumped off the cliff."
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. "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, anu
the man fell into the water and that
.put out flames. He never was a very
good sailor anyhow and the poison
hardly remained long enough in 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 ls making it
possible for the coming men and worn
en, who are being pictured awake and
asleep, laughing and crying, in the
bath and at 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
daily life from the earliest infancy to
college days ls now faithfully record

age of this fad, and are carrying on a
thriving business as baby photograph

Unusual Field for u Woman.
Miss Caroline Van Brunt, secretary
of a largo copper compauy, ls also oue
of the directors and corporators of the

about copper, nickel, the general
mining of ores, thc 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 bc ex

Business Women of Atlanta.
A large body of the women of Atlan
ta, Ga., attended a mass meeting re
cently hi the rooms of the Atlanta
Woman's club for the purpose of or
ganizing a Business Woman's league,
which promises to be the greatest and
most Important organisation In that
city. The promoters are a number of
the leading and professional women of
Atlanta, who realize that the Increas
ing nunib3rs 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 a club
house where working women may
have access to all thc comforts of
women of leisure and a chance for
self-culture through lectures, music,
etc. The organization will include
those who, having boen in business,
are in sympathy with the needs and

Loose SI cc vu i Again.
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 moro and more
and arc in many cases slashed al
most to the shoulder on thc outer
side, over a full soft underslccve.
The loose dnst cloaks with their volu
minous sleeves hnve prepared the way
for larger coat sleeves, which will be
seen on the fall and winter coats.
Panne velvet is 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 what is to be expected later.
A model bat 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 Frunce pink.
Necktie clasps are ven' much in
evidence on the fall street costumes.
The fashionable cravat which appears
upon at least three out of every five
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 the 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 nntlque gold work
that ls a present fad. The latter are
good in style and a single cnbulchon
gera set deeply in the gold and agree
ing with 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 UM of Fragrant Snits.
Women of today are not as liable
to faint as their grandmothers were,
because they dross more sensibly and
do not wear as tlfrht dresses or ns
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. Those
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 the
cost Is 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, so lt may be easily carried in
the pocket. Vinaigrettes are often
vary elaborate, decorated with silver,
gold and even precious stones, but a
tiny bottle of clear glass with a pretty
stopper is always In good taste and as
useful as a more ornate one. To pre
pare the Bait, procure from a trust
worthy druggist half a pound of car
bonate of ammonia und an ounce and
a half of the best 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 wann water,
covered nnd set In a moderate oven
for about an hour. Stir the mixture
several times while lt ls heating. It
Is not necessary for the ammonia to
be crushed Tine. If lt is in broken
lumps it lasts longer. Do not get In
the foolish habit of using a vinai
grette continually. Cases of obstinate
deafness have boon ascribed to thia
case. The salts are also said to have
an Injurious effect on tho vocal cords
as well ns 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 Stylos of Coiffure.
We are abandoning tho pompadour,
says a Paris correspondent, and for a
truly enchanting fashion-the curl la
the middle of the forehead. The half
is curled right up In one twist from
the center of the forehead in this new
tttyle, wee tendrllls playing lightly up
on the temples. The hair at the sides
ls carried to the back of the' head,
leaving only the tiniest possible puffs
on ench side of the face. Oh the
Crown bf 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 ls worn much loW?r
than heretofore. Coiling it tip, hoVv1
overt suits sb ninny faces that thw
fashion Will probably hot be Univer
Another style bf coiffure c?natsts
hi parting the hair Itt the d?hter and
Waving it itt large undulations. Which
lend thethselVes to the slightly puffed
hide's and upright loops on the top,
and which proclaim their emanation
from the empire period. A very
light, ?ne curl ou either side softens
the outline of the forehead. It rhouM
be noted that extreme smoothness
and a glossy look are essentials; no |
fuzzy or fluffy appearance ls to b;?
tolerated. A long comb should adorn
the bnse of the structure; for the day
time lt is 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 lt used to be.
We are promised a return of the em
pire curl. To many women lt is emi
nently becoming, nnd as to those of
us whom it does not suit, we may ig
nore the curl when lt comes, if come
lt does. An especial coiffure has been
designed for those no longer In" tho
flrst bloom of youth. After being
waved, the hair is combed back and
arranged in colls at the crown of the
bead, 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 tie It round the coil, 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 Types of Girls.
There are two, distinct types of
girls recognized Just now, thc girl
who is pretty and thc girl who ls
stylish. Of course there are types of
the intellectual and the studious, but
when they are these they cease to 1>3
called girls, and are given the more
dignified title of women, so the girls
may readily be confined within the
limits of the two types flrst mentioned.
The girl who ls pretty seems to have
an Invincible weapon In her hands.
She is taught from her infancy that
she ls favored above all other girls,
and, alas, by the law of nature's com
pensation, she generally grows up
without nu 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 It
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 it on her
modish head give it a' pat or two
which will transform lt until her neigh
bor will swear it ls imported. . Her
gown m.ty be plniu 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 on ill grace.
Everything belonging to her-partakes
of her individuality, until eyeu^ the?.
everyday sailor or rough straw is dis
tinguished ns lt bangs on the hnll
rack and thc 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 is some
vague power within her which enables
her to select out of the thousand and
one hats at the millinery opening the
very blt of head 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.

[ ABOUT 190 PEET OP SNAKE.
Fte Estimated Length of a Serpent Whose
Petrified Head oad Tall Hive Been Ponad.
Il ages gone by there were snakes
In Colorado perhaps 100 feet lb length.
Cufotor Will C. Ferrll, of the State
Historical Society, considers himself
at liberty to make this statement, as
the result of rc-cent discoveries Made
Ih' ih? Vicinity bt Florenc?. A huge
moWer has been discovered Which
proves beyond peradventure the snake
story. Kenr Florence, W. F\ Masters,
of jVirt?ri i?uhd part of the petrified
hotly 0? ohb colossal snake. The pre
historic reptile had a head fully the
Biz? of a ham and about the same
snipe. The exceptionally large eyes
arc placed as are those of an ordinary
snake. The stone head is 33x30 inches.
A piece of the stone tall found, which
is 3G inches long, indicates that the
reptile must have been 30 inches in
circumference. Masters seems to
tk from the development of the
that this particular snake was a
young one, nut fully developed. In
that case those of the same family
lally- grown would be larger and much
jqnger. In sending to Governor
tibornas the description of this im
portant discovery Masters says that
ie will forward a sketch as soon as
wwslble. Ferril was asked by Gov
ernor Thomas to use every means at
Us disposal to secure the specimen at
once, together with as many others
from the same locality as possible.
Curator Ferrll thinks that ag the os
sified head was found in the sand

mens near at hand. These he will at
ohce secure, If possible, and will add

The painter was omitting the wart.
"No," Faid Cromwell, firmly, "put
in the wart. To omit it wonld be to
do a great injustice to the anecdotal

that the Lord Protector would ever

Journal, but it was well to prepare for
any possible emergency. - Detroit

it's a long way, with many turns and pitfalls to catch
the refuse and clog 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,
?rellow spots, pimples and boils, headaches, spitting up of
ood after eating-an all-around disgusting nuisance.
Violent pill poisons or ff riping salis are danger
ous to use for cleaning out the bowels. They
force out the obstruction by causing violent
spasms of the bowels, but they leave the 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 kills more 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 foec.il 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 44 Cn on the box.) You will
find that in an entirely natural way your bowels will be
