Love la a day
With no thought of morrow.
Love is a joy
With no thought o? sorrow.
Love Is to give
With no thought of receiving.
Love is to trust
Without quite believing.

It was the Van Waggemans who in
troduced Judith Tankerville to soci
ety, and she was so much of a success
that in six weeks she counted her men
friends by the score and not a dowa
ger nor a debutante could find fault
with her. Refinement, beauty, tact
and experience-Mrs. Tankerville had
them all. Money? Nobody knew, but
the women made shrewd guesses
when they recounted the number and
rare splendor of the jewels which she
wore. At every ball or reception
a different and more singuar brooch
or necklace was at her matchless
throat, some odd, barbaric gem was in
her billowy black hair.
As for her antecedents, everybody
knew what the Van Waggemans knew
-that the Tankervilles were an oi l
Irish-English family of high blood and
big achievements. The Van Wagge
mans had met Miss Judith at Flor
ence and later in New York In the
company of the "best people." Her
distingue bearing and foreign air did
the rest. She had the style Parisian,
the English poise, the Dublin brogue
gave its inimitable twang to the mus: .:
cf her voice. The debutante envied
and imitated her amiable stateliness
and saw with eminent gratification
that she eluded, though she could not
discourage, the pursuit of the "elig
ible" young men. Mammas with mar
riageable sons and daughters com
mended the brilliant foreigner's in
gicvi discretion and brilliancy and
"took her up," safe in the certainty
that she was neither an adventuress
nor a fortune-teller. She became the
"rage" among the men and the pro
tege of the women-evidence in itself
of a masterly diplomacy.
It was late in Demberat one ot
Mrs. Boileau's afternoons that Carrie
Hunter Grant, widow of the million
aire coffee roaster, twitted her host
ess about a "possible case" between
.Mrs. Boileau's older brother and the
, "To me he looks "hit,"' whispered
the widow, affectionately.* "Whenever
Judith appears he becomes distrait,
blushes-actually blushes. Just fancy
a whitehaired veteran like the major
blushing at sight of a girl."
"Carrie, Carrie, you inveterate
plotster," sighed the hostess, "brother
George will never marry again unless
-" (arching her eyebrows knowingly.
She knew that Mrs. Grant had her
heart set on the rich widower.)
"Besides," she resumed, "hi?
daughter is of age now, and I'm sure
he has no thought of himself till she's
settled in life."
"By the way," said Mrs. Grant,
changing the topic, 'did you ever no
tice that marvellous watch Miss Tank
'Which one? I've noticed that she
wears a different watch every week or
"I mean that flat, antique thing en
crusted with filigree.There never
was anything like it on earth. ' I'm
dying to know where she got it. If
you ever get a chance ask her. will
It was almost dark when Mrs. Grant
started for her carriage. In the ves
tibule she met Major Glendennin,
Mrs. Moileau's brother, who paused
under the lamp to greet her. Mrs.
Boileau was at her shoulder, chatting
and both women stood to chaff the
old beau. Finally said the widow:
"Major, what time is it? I want to
stop at Mrs. Henry's if I have time."
The major fumbled under his over
coat and pulled out his watch-a
queer, outlandish flat one encrusted
with amber filigree.
"What a queer watch ! " snapped the
widow, laying her hand on Mrs. Boil
eau's arm, 'why, it's something like
one Miss Tankerville wears."
Both women peered at the bauble,
hut it was jerked back into thp ma
jor's pocket in a trice.
"Quarter ?ast five," blurted the wid
owner, flushing and bolting Into the
house. "Aha, my foxey major," gig
gled the widow, 'what do you think of
him now, Mrs. Boileau?" The hostess
laughed nervously, said "I can't be
lieve it" and went In.
It was a week later that -Major
Glendinnin gave a dinner at his club
to ten of his old cronies. They were
all old soldiers of war or finance; rich,
gray old foxes of the fatherly sort;
sleek, well groomed men of fashion
who "knew the world." Widowers and
bachelors all of them who knew the
Tankerville, all good friends of her3
and of each other. They had come to
the coffee when Glendennin proposed
'To Judith Tankerville, who ls to
be n y wife."
The applause which followed was
rot instantaneous, but it came at last,
came strong and hearty when they
saw the major was not joking. Till
then none knew the purpose of thi?
little feat-t. Indeed, it was but one of
many of the same kind, but Glenden
ning announcement fell like a bomb
among his chums. They rallied with
tactful readiness and were standhig
with cheers on their lips and wine
glasses ready before their host could
see through the clouds of smoke above
the table the looks of surprise, chag
rin or merriment that were ex
"You lucky old rascal," Colonel
Gregory was saying when the waiter
entered, salver in hand, and gave the
major a sealed envelope.
The old fellow growled as he tore
off the end, turned pale an instant,
cursed in his white mustache and then
"Where is he?"
"Right here, sir," said a swanger,
who slipped suddenly in behind the
servant; "I made bold to come right
up, sir, because all. of these gentlemen
know Miss Tank-"
"Shut up" roared Glendennin, pur
ple with rage.
"Just a moment, major," cooed the
Interloper. Then, to the walter,
"Please go out."
The waiter left at a signal from
the angry major, and the stranger
ccolly sat down on tho arm of a wall
"Gentlemen," he said to the staring,
wondering guests, "I'm Hogan, a de
tective from central, and I butted in
here because I knew all you gentle
men were-well, I might say, person
al friends of Miss Tankerville, Judith
Tankerville" (taking a bunch of pa
pers out of his pocket), "Miss Judith
Tankerville, alias Mignonne Du pro,
alias 'The Princess,' and so forth."
There was dense silence in the
room. Glendennin looked like a man
in the throes of apoplexy.
. 'The Tankerville woman is wanted
in Paris for fraud-selling for a spec
ulator in watches, jewels, diamonds
and stealing the money. They've been
following her all over Europe, you
know. She's awful slick. Started out
right a year ago and for two months
sold more antique jewelry than any
une and cashed in on the square. She
began the bunko in Florence eight
months ago and has swindled every
The detective coughed, reached for
a glass of wine, drank it off and con
Now, major, that watch you've got
on, the one with the filigree and the
funny carving, how much did you give
her on that."
"Why, it's a family heirloom, you
dog," roared Glendennin. "I found
out she wxi pressed for funds and
let ber have three hun-" ,
'Well, it ain't a family nothing,
sir," said Hogan. "It's just a fake 'an
tique.' they call 'em, made to sell for
75, probably worth 50. Now, gentle*
men" (turning to the company), "I
know you've all been 'stuck' in the
same way. The best way to fix things
up is to give up the gim-eraeks. I
won't say a word about thc matter.
Nobody knows SHE'S arrested, and
we'll just see that she DISAPPEARS."
When Major Glendennin and Mrs.
Carrie Hunter Grant had been mar
riel about six months she asked him:
"What had ever-become of that curi
ous wa'ch you used to wear?"
"Oh, that?" he grunted, looking a
bit sheepish, "I gave that to Colonel
Gregory as a keepsake when he left
for California. He took a fancy to
it, and as it was more of a lady's
watch, I never liked it."
"Where did YOU get it, dear?"
"Oh, I ah-er, hem, it was an heir
loom in my first wile's family, dear."
And his wife looked on in wonder
ing awe and was silent.-John H.

Thc myth that the porcupine can
discharge its quills to a distance is
one of very great antiquity, and, like
many myths, it has at its founda
tion a grain of truth. The porcu
pine's defensive armature lies in the
quills scattered over its body, and,,
above all, thickly implanted in its
tail. When threatened by enemies, it
uses the tail as a weapon, thrashing
and jerking it about from side to side,
to the great danger of any living
creature that may bc within roach
of it. Now thc quills of a porcupine
are so loosely Inserted in the skin that
they become detached very easily.
They arc sharp-pointed and barbed,
and so stick into anything that they
may be roughly brought in contact
with. Any one who has ever poked
a porcupine with a stick will remem
ber that in a very short time many
quills were found with their points
buried in the stick. The violent
thrashings and blows given by the tail
of the porcupine which is defending
itself loosen many of those quills,
which often are thrown short dis
tances, but never more than a few ,
inches, since the quills are far too
light in weight to carry any distance.
T???T?ctls tl?at quills may ne-ana
often are-shaken from the tail of a
porcupine and fall near it. Stansead
in the last sentence or two of his let
ter explains precisely the way in
which these quill'-- are loosened and
then fall to the ground. It is inter
esting to notice that the thrashing of
the porcupine's tail against wood or
the ground or loaves is accompanied
I by considerable noise, and that the
quills rattle against each other. It
has been suggested that this sounds
like a challenge and that it is also a
warning.-Forest and Stream. j

The Voracious Hullfrojj.
"Bullfrogs are about as voracious
as anacondas," says Keeper Thomp
son, of the Zoo's reptile house. "What
do you suppose a full-grown bullfrog
especially likes? Birds. The clumsy
looking, sleepy frog is a marvel of
swiftness when it comes to capturing
a meal. .He will lie motionless along
the banks of a pond or stream, and
when birds come down to drink or
bathe they are swallowed in a twink
ling if they get within range. A bull
frog is just like a snake. He can gulp
down a meal as big as himself. Let
au unwary sparrow venture within a
few inches of the motionless frog and
there will be a lightning-like leap, a
gulp and the frog again assumes his
immovable attitude, but he will look
as if he had swallowed a mattress. Of
course, if birds can't be had bullfrogs
will appease their appetites with in
sects, but they are always on the watch
for unwary members of the feathered
tribe. I have several full-grown bull
frogs in one of the tanks, and they
prefer birds to any other food. Once
in a while I catch mice and feed them
to the frogs, which bolt them whole
with the greatest ease.*-Philadelphia I

During the last few years the
United States government has been in
stalling a number of storage batter

these is a Willard battery of C4 cells,

this battery are of 5(J0-ampcre-hour
capacity and are placed in lead-lined
tanks on racks and insulated with

well as for operating small motors in

One? more the strongest man in the

be known in ordinary descriptive
words as "a little fellow." Arthur
Tyng, who has just sent the all-around

the Harvard competitors. His superi
ority, as attested by himsolf and his
examiners, lies in his nerve, ag'ility
and perfect physicial balance.

even smaller than Tyng. He too was

Intelligences of Insanity.
Insane people frequently make
statements which gives evidence )l
keen intelligence. An instance of this
kind occurred a day or t'A o ago in
Judge Bonham's court. A Scandina

towns was undergoing examination
as to her mental condition. Her hus
band, a weazened inferior looking lit
tle fellow, had told the story of his
wife's condition, and sh/ took in every
word he said.
She was then interrogated and ans
wered all the questions about herself
and her children in a vague, rambling
manner. Finally she protested that
there was nothing the matter with her.
"Do you think that your husband
is out of his mind?" asked the doctor.

the woman. Despite her seeming

wait for their turn in a neighboring

themselves to her of earning money,"

Just why the first parasols to lie
shown should be in black and white
Is not so easily explained. It is a
fact, however, that most women in
buying a very expensive parasol select
lt. In black or white, or both, because
in either case it is bound to be suit
able for almost any costume. So the
designers have taken this economical
need Into consideration with the fol
lowing admirable results:
As clever as it is plain is a heavy
white silk parasol with a border com
posed of three rows of narrow black
velvet ribbon and ono row an inch
ip width; this wide ono is next to the
top row. There's groat character in
this smartest of showings, especially
as seen in contrast with fussy, over
Prettiest, perhaps, among elaborate
parasols is a filmy affair on a white
silk foundation. Black chiffon is shirred
down to two-thirds its depth, ending
In Van Dyke points. The border is or
a lacy piece of baby ribbon (one of
black velvet and one of white satin),
fulled along the edge.
Pleasingly striking is another white
Bilk parasol which is covered to more
than half its depth with tucked black
chiffon. This ia met by the deep bor
der composed of row upon row of
black velvet baby ribbon herringbone
stitched together with heavy black
silk. Three more rows of the ribbon
edge the double chiffon mille, which
is of black over white.
Really plain by contrast is a white
covered with black chantilly. There
Isn't a hitch or a wrinkle. A row af
white satin baby ribbon is fulled 'round
the edge, and one of black velvet
above it. There's a black chiffon chou
at the top, and anotner uuwn on tba
Altogether an airy fairy quartet,
some one of which is certain to appeal
to the clever woman who regards her
parasol as an accessory to rank with
her fan.-Philadelphia Record.
Tho Charm of Youth.
There is a charm of youth and
happiness that carries a certain
amount of thoughtfulness for a time.
Yet this charm is only a passing one,
and soon falls to win consideration if
it is not accompanied by a certain
dignity of poise and wisdom and tact,
which youth, as well as age. may pos
sess. Tho old saying, "beauty is only
skin deep," is daily proved by the
superior charm which genuine beauty
of character exerts on the most trivial
minded of individuals.
No young woman ?.-an afford to be
bluff and careless in her treatment of
the world. In thc old days of the
Colonial times, manual work was more
necessary than exact culture, but they
have nas3ed The maker of dough
nuts and dumpling's was a more impor
tant factor in the society of a 100
years ago than the skilful teacher'or
worker in any skilled field of toJay.
Women did not have time to be proper
ly educated. Their energies were limi
ted to their homos. All this is changed.
The world demands of any one who
would reap its rewards of success a
great deal of intelligence, and also
unselfishness. It demands good man
ners, which have their root in unsel
fishness and thought for others. A
wise young woman who expects io
succeed in any vocation does not ex
pect any consideration because of her
"thoughtless" youth. She aims to be
thoughtful and considerate as well as
helpful. A girl who is called to enter
a family as a companion, governess
or even a.s a serving maid may bc so
tactful and thoughtful that she is
invaluable or she may be -so thought
less that every one in the house is
relieved when she takes her depar
One of the greatest elements of
success which a young woman can
possess is the power of effacing her
own personality in her work. In other
words, the power of doing her work
sc quickly and so well that the Avork
ej- is forgotten in the perfection of
hsr work. The aid her helpful ho nd
has given, the tact and care she has
exercise.!, make her invaluable. She
manages to make herself useful and
agreeable to young and old. It is
the numberless thoughtful things she
has done, which a careless woman
might have neglected to do, which has
been the greatest value of her work,
as well as her skilled knowledge.
When one sees a hurried crowd of
schoolgirls possessed cf the radiant
charm of youth, but full of careless
ness and slangy and coarse in their
language, as the youth of thc begin
ning of the 20th century often are,
ono becomes thoughtful. No one'
wishes a young pr -son to be anything
but happy, but there Is a certain joy
ousness which is possessed of a sweet
seriousness of manner. A well bred,
refined woman, trained for any work,
succeeds far better today than a
coarse, loud woman in any position in
life. The time has gone by when
exuberant youth will be accepted as
an excuse for bad manne.rs.-New

"Wood violet? Fifty cents an ounce.
Thank you. Anything else? Now, I
knew that girl would ask for violet
before she spoke a word. Why? Well,
I can't explain it exactly, only when
one has seid perfumes as long as I
have she anticipates her customors'
tastes at a single glance. Sometimes
I get the tip from thc woman's gown
or her carriage or her general appear

my hand on the right bottle of per

The clerk paused ?suddenly, rested
her slender, well-kept hand on a bot
tle of high-priced toilet water and cast
a significant glance in the direction of
a young woman who was bearing down
upon the perfume counter. Thc new
cusLomcr wore a stylish golf skirt and
a chic Fedora, and had just finished
a glass of milk and vichy at thc soda
counter. When she had carried off
ber purchase, which, sure enough,
proved to be the bottle of toilet water,
thc cleric remarked:
"I was right you see. That sort of
a girl, well-groomed, tailor-made, and
given to athletics, likes toilet water
in li pr ria liv bath- Sheld_iise bay rum_
like her brother, only it is a trifle too
"White violet is the most popular
ol' all extracte, it is particularly the
favorite of the woman who dresses in
gray. I have one customer who af
fects the most stunning gray frocks,
cloth, silk and velvet in winter, exqui
site lawns and dimities in summer,
and almost as strong in her passion
for violet. Just she buys gray stock
ings, gloves and purses to match hoi
gowns, so she has every toilet acces
sory in violet. It perfumes her am
monia water, her face and tooth pow
ders. She buys violet extract, soap
and toilet water, and quantities of
sachet. Yet when she is near you,
you can detect just the faintest most
illusive of perfumes. Why? Because
she understands the art of using them.
"Then take th*5 vornan who wears
a great deal of purple, heliotrope or
any of the blending tints, and she will
use heliotrope extract which is heav
ier and more lasting than violet. The
rosebud girl, she of peachy cheeks and
baby blue eyes, goes in for white rose,
crab apple blossom or lilies of the
valley, odors that are delicate.
"The showy women, particularly
those who wear diamonds and over
trimmed gowns when they shop of
mornings, select the heaviest per
fumes, like frangipanni. Whenever an
over-dressed woman approaches me I
can safely gamble on her ordering the
strongest perfume in stock".

for lavender now. There's one white
haired southern woman who buys it
regularly, anr". I'd love to peep into her
