In three weeks' time for his health's
sake, and I am to accompany him. A
month ago I made the acquaintance of
a charming lady about my own age,
and "we have met at various intervals

Two Saturdays passed and left him
in the deepest depths of despair, ow
ing to the nonappearance of a reply
to his communication.
In the meantime he met Mildred
Holsworth on two occasions at the
house of a mutual acquaintance and
once was almost on the verge of a
declaration, but checked himself ia
time to save making himself an arrant
ass, as he termed it.
It was with feverish excitement that
he opened the last issue of the Daisy
published before he left England.
Eagerly he scanned the page sacredly
set apart for the benefit of "Aunt
Meg" and her amorous amblings.
Yes, it was there at last!
"H. A. E.:-Waste no time, but go
and ask her at once. If I judge
rightly from the tone of your letter,
you need scarcely have any apprehen

to monetary matters, a girl who can
not comfortably manage and be happy
on the united income doesn't deserve
a husband at all."
It was all over. The last slipper
had sped its course in the air and dis
appeared through the window of the
compartments which had the honor of
accommodating the happy couple, and
the last handful of rice lay whitening
the platform like a miniature fall of

That I*. Some of Them Are, Says a Cyn
ical Masculine Observer.
"Women are critically curious creat
ures," said a cynical citizen, "and the
wonder to me is that they ever make
a wise selection in marriage. I do not
mean to say anything unkind, for no
man has a deeper or more profound
regard for women than I have, and I
admire Drummond chiefly because he
said that woman represents evolu
tion's, nature's, God's, highest achieve
ment, and that she was really the cli
max of all these forces, and they
reached their limit in her creation, a
result the forces had been striving
to bring about from the very begin
ning of time. I believe this is true.
Being of a cynical turn of mind, I am
not inclined to admit that the world is
wholly good, but what good there is
cn this old planet is to be found in
the other sex.
"But why is it that we are constant
ly confronted by the perverseness of
woman's taste in the matter of choos
ing between men as we find it, for in
stance, in the stage portrayals? Take
th?? average play, and we will gener
ally find the woman's love drifting
toward some fellow who is totally un
worthy, a fellow who is a vertitable
scalawag in all that the word means.
"in nine cases out of 10 it is neces
sary to kill a fi w men in order to pro
tect s'jme good woman-on the stage
from the fearful tortures of living all
her life with an unworthy man. At
least, one man will have to be of the
melodramatic kind, why, there is no
limit to the number of fellows who will
be sacrificed in order to get the woman
out of a bad matrimonial bargain. Are
men's ideals higher than the ideals o?
women? Is the heroic and the sublime
in man's nature more highly devel
oped and more delicately outlined than
these same impulses in the nature of
the fairer sex? Fiction, you know,
and fiction of thc standard sort,- is
filled with women of the kind I have
mentioned. Of course, they are not all
of the kind I have been discussing.
Shakespeare's women, for instance,
are made of sterner stuff, and histori
cal examples of the stronger and moro
thoroughly balanced kind are not lack
ing. lhere are the women of the
French revolution, who lowered above
the men like giui 'esses. There are our
own noble . w . .aen,. who struggled
through the blood end tears that
drenched the 'GO'S, and others might
be mentioned, for we may count all
around us the good examples of wise
women in all of life's relations.
"But I was just thinking lightly
r.bor.t the apprivently natural devotion
which a woman has for the scalawag,
and in a majority of cases, if she is
called upon to make a selection be

the fellow who needs reclamation, iu

LAWS WHICH COVERN IN MATTERS
OF EQUINE GOOD TASTE.
Improvement in llio H?nning and Ap
pointment or Park Trap?-Some Trap
pings However, Like Diamonds at
Brrakfast - K ilea Not to Vo Violated.
To those who deplore tho extremes
to which it is pretty generally con
ceded the independent American citi
zen goes in matters of dress, it may
be comforting to know that the Amer
ican horse, at least, is coming to be
"looked upon as one of the best and
at the same time one of the most
'properly" dressed horses in the world,
?ays the New York Post. And. when
it understood that a horse without
the least difficulty on its owner's part
.nay appear in the park and on the
boulevards in attire as shocking as
diamonds at breakfast, it will be the
better realized what this means. That
there are still flagrant violations of
the laws which govern matters of
equine good taste goes without saying,
but they merely serve to furnish the
contrast by which the general im
provement is made more marked.
To the horse-show associations,
mort than to anything else, may ne
attributed this advancement in the
proper housings of thc American horse
of fashion and the correct appoint
ments for park traps and road turn
cuts. In establishing classes in which
the appointments of the entries must
betaken into consideration hythe judg
es in making their awards, the associa
tion has set a definite standard of
fashion. An owner, for example,
whore pair of brougham horses arc
turned down (after the judge has
weeded out the entire class down to
his pair and one other), because his
brass-mounted harness is equipped
with steel instead of brass kidney
links, learns next time to understand
thc importance of these little niceties
of detail. And it is the attention to
or the ignoring of these apparently
insignificant details that make a park
horse either "smart" or ridiculous.
The black rosettes, for instance,
when used on the bridle as emblems
of mourning, are considered improper,
unless a plain black brow band is
substituted for the ornament one orig
inally on the harness. The saddle
housings, if in color, should likewise
bc changed. In this city it has become
an unwritten law that the rosettes
shall be of the same shade with the
carriage trimmings, but in London and
in Paris this rule is not observed. In
those cities violets and other flowers
are frequently substituted . for the
orthodox silk rosette.
As in matters to masculine attire,
London likewise set.: the styles in
fashionable harnesser-. There l3 P
well-known importer (A horse-furnish
inga who has successfully introduced
several nev/ fashions into this country
by first making them popular in Lon
don, whei e he has another store. Pos
sibly the most conspicuous case of this
kind was that of the Swiss collar
which he offered as a substitute for
the English collar, which had original
ly supplanted former Swiss importa- j
tions. The new collar was made with
an extremely broad breast-plate and
two heavy brass terre ls. As a light
runabout harness, it has now almost
entirely succeeded the old one.
The French quarter-blanket made
of leather has likewise largely taken
the place of the English broadcloth
blanket. It is cut shorter than the
English affair, and is intended to
protect only the horse's loins, and
thus in no way impede the movements
o' his hips. Harnesses, according to
this Broadway importer, are divided,
like men's garments, into two classes
-dress ami undress-and to appear in
the park with a victoria and an un
dress harness-which becomes un
dress if the kidney links are of steel
when the other mounting is brass, or
when the bearing reins do not coni
form to the general ensemble-is as
unpardonable as appearing on tne
street in an evening coat and russet
"Strangely enough," said the impor
ter, "I find that the tendency here is
towards ultra conservatism. There is
not the same latitude permitted hero
today that you will find in London.
This is especially true of the brough
ams and heavy park vehicles. There
almost any color is permissible in tho
trimmings of a victoria or landau.
Here no one seems to dare employ
any color other than black; and the
same thing holds true of the housings.
The use of pole chains here when a
servant is driving is an offence which
is unpardonable in any civilized coun
try. Pole-straps with polished buckles
are alone permissible. "he pole
chains were made with a view of
adding smartness to the turn-out, and
they should only be used to a trap in
which a gentleman may do the driv
ing. It is not good form either to
have quarter-blankets of ono color and
housings of another, nor is it any lon
ger the thing to use large monograms
on them. We cannot revolutionize
the styles in harnesses as a tailor may
with his wares. We are fortunate if
wc can change with every four or five
In four-in-hand turnouts-no doubt
. from the character of its patrons- it
is probably easier to offend the pro
prieties than in any other department
in which the horse plays a part. There
are little niceties in appointment and
deportment, so finely drawn that to
observe or tc ignore them either
makes old friends enemies or strang
ers friends. There is one school that
believes in driving with the left hand
held on a level with the chest. The
other school drives with a low hand,
sneers at the former method and call3
lt "driving in front of your scarf pin."
The scarf pin advocates answer that
to work a four after this manner is
more difficult, and consequently is
more of an accomplishment. There
are the gentlemen whips who conten'1
that hip-straps or trace-bearers should
never be used under any circum
stances. Their opponents say that
such details of the harness are en
tirely warranted in the case of a horse
with a tendency to kick.
There are certain set rules, how
ever, that the owner of a coach must
observe to be in form. Ribbons and
rr.settes may not be used on a road
coach except cn the last day of the
season, then on the last stage into
town knots of ribbons on the horses'
heads and similar ones with long ends
or. the saddles may be worn. It is ex
pected that ti. ?se ribbons will corre
spond at all times, but on a road
coach only flowers in season are per
missible. The flower may be worn
in the cheek-piece buckle. The bridle
tj be used with, a park drag may have
a front piece ornamented with a sim
ple chain pattern; for a road coach
patent leather or worsted planted
a?ound a leather front is alone permis
sible. Another little nicety in four
in-hand appointments is the distinc
tion made in the bridle-bosses. On
the drag'.harness these bosses should
be on the inner as well as on the outer i
side of the bridle, on the coach har
ness only on the outside. The boss
is the only place where a crest or
an initial should be placed. For wet
weather work the harness should be
of black leather throughout, with the
metal parts covered-this rule applies,
however, more to team harnesses than
A TRIP TO DAWSON.
Scenery Beaut!ful-Hardships of Travel
Aro i inners or tho 1'n.u.
It is n matter of surprise to me that
so few people travel through our north
v^est territory for pleasure and sight
seeing. The scenery is beautiful ani
the hardships of travel are things of
the past. The old-timers like to re
late their experience over the trails,
with their dog sleds, and their trips
on the Yukon, on rafts and in canoes,
their solitary tramps over the moun
tains, in search of gold, with scanty
provisions and how they were at
times in peril from the Indians, but
oftener from the weather. The rail
road over the mountains and the
steamboats on the river have changed
all this and have provided in its place
the usual comforts of travel.
The coast range of mountains is in
view of the steamers that ply along
the Alaska shore to Skagway. The
/.ills are green with pines and cotton
woods and an occasional cateract may
.be seen foaming down some steep
hillside, while above it lies the glacier
that feeds it. At this season of the
year, Aug. 30, there are a number of
small icebergs near Juneau, and they
are as treacherous as they are beauti
ful. Of a light translucent blue color
they rise 20 to 30 feet out of the
water and look like islands of glass.
They aro not easily discernible at
night and the face of tbe ill-starred
islander awaits a vessel colliding with
one of them.
For miles from the mainland of
Alaska the sea is full of islanjs, large
and small, covered with a luxuriant
vegetation. The sea in the inland pas
sage between Seattle and Skagway is
av. smooth as glass, except in a very
few places, like Queen Charlotte
Sound. Indeed it is somewhat like the
inland sr?a of Japan, which travelers
are so delighted to visit and tell about,
but it is all on a larger scale and with
the human life of it. In places of
tilled fields in terraces on the hill
sides and the evidences everywhere of
crowded life, in Alaska and the great
Northwest territory one is impressed
with the vast solitude. Thousands of
miles are uninhabited except by a few
tribes of Indians, some salman fishers
and prospectors for gold.
Skagway is not as busy a town as
it was in '99. Some copper claims
have been located between there and
White Horse, but if they ever gave
any promise that t?iey would become
mines they have not yet fulfilled it.
?My Norwegian friend, with a smile
that was "childlike and bland," told
me that he had sold a couple of them,
but did not think much of them.
But if there are no mines between
Skagway and White Horse there i3

Skill. It winds around the granite
cliffs cn a grade of 4 percent in
places, and through the car windows
can be seen far below thc track over
which the train has circled. An ascent
of between 2000 and 3000 feet is made
from Skagway to Lake Bennett. From
there tho train runs along the lake
side and the banks of the Yukon to
White Horse. The length of the rail
road ls 100 miles. The current in the
Yukon river is swift; it runs about six
miles an hour, so the distance down
the river from White Horse to Daw
son, 450 miles, is made quickly. The
bc-st river boats make it in between
30 and 40 hours.-Mines and Min

ELASTIC BANDS OUST STRING.
Cheaper Than String In Some Uses
Tons of Them Sold.
"No," said a rubber goods dealer,
who had been asked about the sale of
elastic bands, "we don't exactly sell
them by the ton, but there are tons
of them sold In the course of the year.
"Originally designed more especially
for a convenient binder for bundles of
documents and that sort of thing, they
are now used for a great variety of
purposes in place of string. They are
used to put around packages and
bundles in stores, more especially
small packages, as in drug stores.
"They are used by many manufac
turers to put around things of various
kinds, which otherwise would be tied
up. If many of these uses, aside
from their convenience and their at
tractiveness as a part of the parcel,
they are cheaper than string, because
the use of them saves so much time.
A rubber band can be wrapped around
a package in much less time than it
can be tied up.
"Rubber bands in old times used to
be sold by the dozen, now, as you
know, they are sold by the pound, but
you don't have to buy a pound, you
can buy an ounce, or a half ounce, for
"How many bands to a pound? Well,
that depends, of course, on the size
of the bands. The biggest, heaviest
bands used run only twelve bands to
the pound; tho smallest, a tiny little
band called an election ring, from their
use around bunches of ballots, number
thousands to the pound. Most people
buy bands of gray rubber, but nowa

but there's sure to be music in the air

Mrs. L. A. Harris, a Prominent Member
of a Chicago Womans Political Club, tells
how Ovarian Troubles may be Cured with
out a Surgical Operation. She says :
" Doctors have a perfect craze for operations. The minute
there is any trouble, nothing but an operation will do them ; one
hundred dollars and costs, and included in the costs are pain, and
agony, and o? ten death.
"I suffered for eight years with ovarian troubles ; spent hundreds
of dollars for relief, until two doctors agreed that an operation was
my only chance of life. My sister had been using Lydia E. Pink
Iiam's Vegetable Compound for her troubles, and been cur&.i,
and she strongly urged me to let thc doctors go and try the Com
pound. I did so as a last resort ; used it faithfully with the Sana
tive Wash for five months, and was rejoiced to find that my troubles
were over and my health restored. If women would only try Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound first, fewer surgical operations
would occur."-MRS. L. A. HARRIS, 278 East 31st St., Chicago, Ul. '
