"Jliss Peach went to Cape May last
Thursday, and when I heard 6he was
going I had to break in and ask If I
might come up and carry her bag to
the train. I was bound to make a
grand stand play with her, you under
stand. She said I might, and you
couldn't have held me. I was up at her
house before the doors were open, and
there she was with a bag the size of a
trunk, all knobby and lumpy on the
outside from the things she'd jammed
Into it. You know how a woman packs

one small steamer trunk and gets the

"Well, that's the way Miss Peach's
bag was packed, and it weighed a ton
at that I picked it up gayly it had a
crate of umbrellas and parasols and a
box of candy and a basket of fruit and
a rug and a jacket and a bandbox and
a bundle of magazines and a few other
trifles and we set off. When we got
to the station, I lugged the things into
the waiting room and sat down with
the bag on my knees.
"Pretty soon I looked down, and
there was a stream of something black

she was sorry? Did she say she was
a born fool for packing things like that

just looked at me haughtily.

The principal of one of the public
schools was very much surprised one 1
day not long before school closed. It
is the custom in some of the schools
whi'i a stranger, or more likely the
principal or one of the trustees, enters
for them to say to the school at large:
"Good morning, children." Then the
children, as with one voice, will
"Good morning, sir."
It may have been this custom which
brought about the surprise" for the
principal. The children in the primary
school had been sewing, and the work
was done remarkably well. It was
warm, uncomfortable weather, and the
children had done so well that the
teacher thought they should be re
warded by the approbation of the prin
cipal, and she sent for him to come to
lier room. When he entered, the sew
ing was around everywhere, and thu
room looked so much more like a
dressmaker's shop than a school that
he exclaimed involuntarily:
"Hello!" responded every little mite
in the room and so spontaneously that
teacher and principal turned away
that the children might not see them
smile. New York Times.

are Interested in a curious psychological
fact I myself am a believer in heredity.
I am Mire that somewhere in the past
this woman had an ancestor with a
sharp tongue, which she had never tried
to bridle. If there is sympathy for the
man who inherits a consuming thirst for
drink, why not for the woman who has
had Lequeathed to her a bad temper,
which she took with her hair and eyes?
I.ueila had everything to make her hap
py, from the standpoint of any reasona
ble Ikmus, hut she never ceased ram
plaining, and at last the good nature and
fortitude of her husband deserted him,
and he turned, not as the worm turns
but rather like a rasing lion, and I.ueila
he'd her peace hi sheer astonishment.
"I wish you were dumb," he said in a
voice of concentrated wrath and scorn.

he overstepped boundaries, he went too
far, but there was this in extenuation
his words came from the lips and not
from the heart, they sounded far worse
than they intentioned, and they recoiled
on himself even before he had seized his
hatto leave the house. He turned to see
their effect on Luella and found, to his
horror, that she had fainted.
Then he called himself a brute, sent for
friends and a doctor and hung over his
wife, prostrate with grief and remorse,
until she opened her eyes and recognized
He begged her forgiveness, bnt to all
his entreaties she only shook her head
feebly until at last, when he pleaded for
one word, she made a motion which indi

gave her paper and pencil, and this is
what she wrote:
"You have your wish. You will never

It was noised about in the community,
and people talked, old people especially,
of what they called "a visitation of God."
The doctors had another name for it.
They called it acute paralysis and said it
was reflex and would pass off presently,
but they were wrong in their prognosti
cations. Luella went about her work
again the light household duties which
devolved upon her but no word came
from her mute lips. Allan, who was be
side himself with grief and disappoint
ment, urged her to learn the labial lan
guage indeed offered to forego speech
for her sake and learn the lessons of si
lence with her, but she would not listen
to the suggestion. And then began the
martyrdom of Allan Davis.
Luella could hear perfectly, so that her
husband and friends were not constrain
ed in their speech, but any word she had
to say, any message or answer in their
conversation coining from her, must be
written. She was always provided with
the means of communication, and writ
ing tablets of the daintiest sort were
scattered around the house like some new
bric-a-brac of speech.
The devotion of Allan Davis to his af
flicted wife was something marvelous.
He never wearied of loverlike attentions,
and he never demanded the slightest rec
ognition of them. He spent every hour
of his existence not employed in his busi
ness in devising pleasures for Luella, and
on those unfortunate days when a dumb
devil of ill nature asserted itself he met
her mute reproaches with a self abase
ment that was neither unmanly nor ser
vile, but Christlike. His bonny brown
locks turned gray, his laughing, boyish
face took on the shadows of early age,
but his spirit remained serene and pa
tient, and the love lie held in his heart
for this woman grew brighter and more
fervent toward the end. And the end
came before the fire of youth had quite
turned to ashes the end for Allan Davis.
It was a simple case of influenza at
first, with no suggestion of danger, until
one day the doctor looked grave; and the
next he said to Luella, "Your husband

of an eyelid told him what he wanted to

joy in her cold eyes, a strange tense

The end came at night, when Luella
watched with her husband alone. Hi
had been sleeping and dreamed some
thing that awakened him with a wild
start and made ail things look unreal all
except his wife, who bent over hiin with
a new solicitude in her face. He saw it
and was grateful.
"I am going to leave you, dear," he
said in the slow, precise tones of those
who are nearly done with human speech.
"Will you not let me take with me as my
last glad heritage a word of forgiveness
for the great wrong I did?"
Luella looked at him, and an unmis
takable gleam of triumph shone in her
eyes and expressed itself in her move
ments. as she seized her tablet and wrote
something upon it in plain, distinct let
ters. Allan saw the look, and the hope
that had sustained him so many years
seemed now about to be realized, and he
lifted his head eagerly to read for the
last time that beloved handwriting.
But God, more merciful than his crea
ture, had anointed his eyes with a film,
and with the written words he so longed
to see held before him by an unfaltering
hand he loosed his hold on earthly love
and hate and despoiled the last sting of a

for her dying husband to read:

Nr.w Yonic, July -24. Some folks like
Long Branch and some folks do not.
I am one of the latter class, but, fortu

likes or dislikes would have little in

have my say anyhow. Those who have
cottages enjoy nil the pleasure of
fresh air and as much quiet as they
want Those who go in for a gay,
sporty time may find it nt the hotel3,
and those who have line teams enjoy
the rides. But somehow the whole at

me. But I am only one of many.

for mosquitoes, so life is worth living
there if you are rich.
Every afternoon the ladles gather on
the pier waiting for their "men folks"
or "at the station. This is the time
when they take the most pains to look
their prettiest I saw one very strik
ing costume which would attract at
tention anywhere. The skirt was of
black and white striped heavy silk. It
was so cut that the stripes went
around the same way in diagonal lines
all the distance. This is a feat in
dressmaking almost impossible of ac
complishment. There was a little
double breasted vest of blue and white
striped satin. Over this was a figaro
jacket of black peau de soie. A dainty
liclm of white silk mnll edged with
oclier colored renaissance lace was tied
in front without ends. The high stock
was of the same. A rolled revere of
the black silk was put around the neck
upon the fichu. The hat worn with

very handsome, hail the dress of pale

straps of satin two shades darker
stitched on around the hips and on the
waist where there was a dainty sim

ecru all over lace lined witli pink silk.
The hat was of ecru straw, with pop
pies and black velvet for trimming.
The parasol was a dream in faint pink
silk, hand painted, witli poppies and
leaves, and with a full putting of fine
pale pink chiffon. A bow of pink chiffon
in form of a rosette was placed half
way up the ivory handle. Biscuit col
ored cloth is made up in a very swell
tailor suit, with no trimming except
strap stitchings on the skirt. There

The jaunty little jacket has wide
revers embroidered in colors in a strag

suit was a flat sailor shape of straw,
witli drapery of changeable taffeta
and a couple of curled quills. All
these ladies get into carriages as soon
as their "men folks" arrive and go
for a long drive around the roads lead
ing to and from Long Branch. Then
they come back and dress for dinner,
the piazzas or the dance, or indeed
anything they like.
White lawn witli multitudes of ruf
fles and lace frills seems to lead in pop

silk mull and taffeta keep up better
under the melting dampness. Here is
the place where, next to Newport and
Saratoga, one sees splendid jewels.
Diamonds seem as plentiful as stars in
the sky. Everything in jewels is seen
except opals. I think if any woman
wore an opal in Long Branch she
would be requested to send it home by
express. One lady wore a most remark
able dress. The upper part of the skirt
was of white wool grenadine, fitting
without a wrinkle and scarcely a flare
to below the knees. Then there was
a four inch band of rich renaissance
lace laid on flat. Below were four
very full flounces of black silk mull
over black taffeta. Each had five rows
of very narrow black satin ribbon.

The brilliant complexions of women In the more exclusive circles of New
tfork society are not explained by the theory that associates beauty and idle
ness. In fact many leaders of the world ot fashion are hard workers. Yet
they keep their good looks even when they are old. How do they manage
it? THE MISSES BELL, of 7S Fifth Avenue, New York, themselves con
nected with some of the rost noted, and honored families in the metropolis,
have answered the question. They have prepared for the use of women in
general, five preparations for improving the complexion and the hair.

it. I was unable to do any kind,

tried many doctors. I was ad
vised to try Dr. Williams' Pink

menced their use last September.
Before I had finished my first box
I felt better, and by the time I had
used six boxes the disease had en
tirely disappeared, and I have not
been so free from pain since I was
a boy. The paralysis also disap
peared, and although two months
have passed since I finished my
last box, there has been no recur

Philadelphia. July 24. The lironio
tors of the National Ux;io:t exposition,
which will be held In this city this au
tumn, seem to have atloiiteil the theo
ry in relation to traile that
No pent up t'tica restrains our powers;
The boundless universe is ours.
While it may be impossible to corral
the "boundless universe," it Is pretty
certain that the coining exposition will
help amazingly iu placing the products,
of American fields aud factories, of
American brains and brawn, into every
nook and corner of this planet we call
earth. The purpose of the enterprise
is admirably defined iu its title the
National Export Exposition For the
Advancement of American Manufac
tures and the Extension of Export
Trade. This it aims to accomplish by
means or three tnaln departments,
First. A compute display of eterr line of
American manufactured products nbich is al
rcaly in demand abroad or for which a foreign
rn.:rket may be created.
Second. A complete exhibit of samples of man
ufactured poods macie in other countries than the
United States and now successfully sold in all
foreign markets or prepared in those markets for
Third. A department for the instruction of
the American manufacturer in packing: and label
ing his products to meet the requirements and
approat of foreign bujers.
The exposition, which will be the
first of its character ever held in this
country, is the outgrowth and develop
ment of the Philadelphia Commercial
museum and is under the joint aus
pices of this institution and the
Franklin institute. It will be opened
on Sept. i4 aud continue Iu progress
ten weeks, closing on Nov. 30.
This will be the first general exposi
tion held in the east since the Centen
nial iu Philadelphia iu 1STG, and this
fact gives it an added interest to peo
ple living In the seaboard states. It is
likely also to attract uo little attention
from the south, particularly the Atlan
tic coast states, and to bring into closer
commercial touch the buyer and the
seller, the maker and the taker of the
east and south. It is, however, In no
sense sectional aud will embrace in its
exhibits and visitors the whole of this
country as well as foreign countries.
There are already abundant indica
tions of its success. The managers
have received assurances from pro
spective exhibitors at home and abroad
which guarantee the greatness and
cosmopolitan character of tho show.
The demand for space in the exhibition
halls has surpassed the expectation of
the promoters of the enterprise.
While tho purpose of the exposition
is to promote our foreign trade and
demonstrate the superiority of Ameri
can products, it cannot fail to be of
benefit to the home trade of the Ameri
can manufacturer and producer.
Though of snecial interest to Ameri
can manufacturers and foreign buyers,
the exposition will offer abundant op
portunities for the instruction and
amusement of the general public. All

I not subordinated to trade. Pleasure
will have a part. The lighter side of
the exposition will embrace many
unique and varied attractions, notable
among which will bo the daily con
certs held In the handsome auditorium.
The exposition grounds are admir
ably situated on the west bank of the
Schuylkill river and comprise a tract
of land 5(J acres in extent, deeded to
the Philadelphia museum by the city
of Philadelphia. The place Is within
ten minutes ride of the city hall and
is easily accessible from all parts of
the city both by electric and steam
railroad lines. A station of the Penn
sylvania railroad, at which all trains
will stop during the exposition, is lo
cated within 400 feet of the main en
trance. The work of construction Is well
advanced on the buildings and will be
ready for the installation of exhibits
by the middle of August. The main
group of buildings is so arranged as to
form one grand and Imposing struc
ture about 400 by 100 feet in extreme
dimensions and covering an area of
more than nine acres. Five separate
buildings enter into tills great edifice,
which is constructed largely of steel
and brick and upon lines which the ex
perience of other expositions bus
proved to be desirable. These main
buildings and several special buildings
will give an exhibition space of 200,000
Three of the five buildings compris
ing the main structure are permanent.
They are each two stories high, 3S0 feet
long and 90 feet wide. These hand
some and substantial structures will
become the permanent home of the
Philadelphia Commercial museum.

It is made from a formula of Dr. R. V.
Pierce, the celebrated specialist in diseases
of women at Buffalo, N. Y. It is a strictly
temperance medicine, containing neither

headache, backache and nervousness. It
prepares the way for almost painless ma

from college in disgrace. "I never ex

"No!" responded the young man,
with a sort of feeble resentment. "I
