The pride of Mrs. Lester's heart

nobody. Consequently when Miss
Arabella Tiptop espoused Mr. Au

the moment she entered the hall her
eye encountered, perched on the two
hall chairs, a mammoth valise of
Idingy yellow and a large basket
-erith two handles.
"What are those, Bridget?" she
said faintly. Bridget uttered.
"They're luggage, mum," she
said. "You've got company, an ould
gentleman and an oula lady. They
arc in the back parlor, and'they bid
me say nothin', bekase they'd like
to give you a pleasant surprise."
"A pleasant surprise!" muttered
3Irs. Lester, and with anything but
a happy expression on her counte
nance she sailed toward the back
There on either side of the fire
sat an old lady and gentleman, cer

Mrs. Lester summoned up a smile.
"Aunt and Uncle Trotters, I de

said the old lady.
"Well, how are you both?" said

Mr. Lester scowled.
"Gracious heavens!" he eja?ulal

And she arose to lind it In a
moment she called out:
"George, the bracelet's gone!"
The gentleman came to her aid.
They searched the floor, the whole
room. both, rooms, all in vain/ The
bracelet was gone.
"It has been stolen," said Mrs.
"Ono of the servants must have
it," said Mr. Lester.
Mr. Lester rang the bell. \
"Sam, send all the servants here
and come yourself."
In five minutes the kitchen cabi
net appeared, looking as though a
storm were brewing.
Mr. Lester arose to address them
"I have something very serious to
say," he seid. "I address everybody
but cook. Cook has not been up
stairs and cannot be suspected. A'
bracelet has been lost," seid Mr.
Lester, clearing his throat; "a dia
mond bracelet. All of you have
been in the back parlor, where it
was left upon a table., and all of
you aro consequently implicated."
At this a tumult equal to that of
Donnybrook fair arose.
"Hone of us touched your brace
let," and fists were shaken and lan
guage not to be recorded was used.
In the midst of the tumult Mr. Les
ter opened the window.
Some one in brass buttons was
passing, and he called:
"Policeman, step here a minute,
if you please," and the next moment
admitted the officiai designated.
Hage and tears were now min
gled, and amid the partial lull Mr.
"iou make a charge against all
of 'em, then," said the policeman.
"Certainly," said Mr. Lester.
"No other mortal could possibly
be suspeoted," said the lady.
"Then 111 proceed to busircss,"
said the policeman. "My coi u ade
is outside. Get your bonnets, young
women, and don't make a fuss, be
cause, you see, ifs no use."
Bridget shrieked, Ann tore her
hair, Sally sat down upon the floor,
Sam roared and cook wept aloud
from sympathy, and at that junc
ture came a ring-at the bell.
The policeman opened the door,
and in rushed Uncle and Aunt Trot
ters out of breath.
"We've run the hull way," gasped
Uncle Timothy. "Openin' my valise

And out upon the table came
from the depths of the yellow va

The Trotters stayed all night and
at 9 o'clock descended to the kitch

A WEDDING TOUR INCIDENT.
The Bride's Embarrassing Meeting
With Her Former Fiance.
She ia 7ery pretty, and no one
wonders tb*t her husband is much
in ii ve with her unto this day, but
ehe tells this story of a had half
hour on her wedding lourney.
"I was eighteen," she said, "when
I was married and had been engaged
to my husband a year, but preceding
both engagement and marriage I
was sort of engaged, schoolgirl fash
ion, to another young fellow. It
was one of thoso intangible engage
ments that melt into thin air when
the real prince comes, but fervid
enough while they last. In this case
my interest in the affair cooled with
the rapidity of a collapsing balloon,
and as the youth lived in a distant
city no embarrassing explanations
."So I was married, and the wed
ding journey included a stop of sev
eral days in a town on the Ohio riv
er, where we had a cozy table all to
ourselves at the hotel. It was at
dinner one day that the patriarchal
waiter approached and asked if we
would object to another gentleman
and lady being placed at our table.
""Bride like yourself, missy/ he
added confidentially as he passed
my chair. In a moment he ushered
to their places the other couple, and
I looked up io encounter my former
fiance, consternation and amaze
ment written on every Uno of his
face. Lacking the wit or wisdom of
experienced years, I dropped my
eyes without further recognition
than rapid paling and Hushing of
countenance, and he, following my
lead, began discussing the menu
with his wife.
"The dimer proceeded in such
appalling silence so far as I was
concerned as to fairly paralyze my
husband, and explanations were in
order as soon as we returned to our
apartments. Then how he laughed
and went in search of the rival cou
Ele, only to find they had left the
otel immediately after the meal,
and we have never heard of either
of them since."-Baltimore Sun.
The Value of Thought.
It is hardly, necessary to say that
all men need to "swing" the moral
compass from time to time and to
take their bearings in the sea of
life. The advice is as true as it is
conventional. Upon the use of
thinking, for such purposes we oh all
not, then, dwell. We may, however,
point out that aa a means of
strengthening and invigorating the
mind in a secular and worldly sense
the habit of thinking is of the great
estpossible va!? ne.
The minds of those who dread
thinking as if it were a penance be
come like the bodies of those fed
solely on spoon meat-soft and un
able to stand the slightest strain,
reading, as one ordinarily reads,
like swallowing pap; thinking like
eating solid food. The man who
trains his mental powers by medita
tion and by following outlines of
lvthought obtains an intellectual in
strument a hundred times more pow
erful than he who is content never
to think seriously and consecutively.

teration is practiced in Athens. The
residents have a penchant for goats'
milk, and herds of these animals are
led alon? the street by milk sellers
wearing long blouses with capacious
sleeves. Their cry of "Gala, gala!"
brings the housewife to the door,
and she prudently demands thal the
goats shall be milked in her pres

man has in one hand the end of a
thin tube which runs up his sleeve
and connects with an india rubber
receptacle full of water, which is
carried under his ample blouse. At

In mythology we find the three (3)

When the Cat Wa? Sacred.
In the middle ages brute animals
formed as prominent a part in the
devotional ceremonies of the time as
they had in the religion of Egypt.
The cat (olurus) was embalmed nf t
er death and buried in the city of
Bubastis, because, according to He
rodotus, Diana Bubastis, the chief
deity of the plae, was said to have
transformed herself into a cat when
the gods fled to Egypt.
