silver candelabra stood twinkling

floated through the building. The
carpels of the two parlors had been
covered nnd these who wished to dance

If there Is any one on. earth who'
needs an accident policy It is the
bicycle rider. His life Is never out of
danger. He rlde? in .the shadow of
death. Realizing this, and to meet the
jnessing demand for something of the
sort, the Insurance companies now in?
corporate In their accident policies a
clause specially insuring riders of
bicycles against accident. Of course,
a general policy covers accidents of
this kind, too, but the special clause,
for a consideration, duubles the benefit.
? ? ?
"Insurance is a curious business,"
said Mr. W. L. Seldon. special agent
for the Travelers, "and one runs up
against some queer tilings. I am con?
stantly wondering at how much and
how little it takes to kill a man. We
have a brakeman in our company who
was in a railroad wreck some .time
ago. Fifteen cars fell on him, and yet
he escaped with barely a scratch. On
the other hand, one of our policy-hold?
ers not long ago, whlie doing some
work In the Arlington, fell from a
scaffold, a distance of not more than
six feet, and was almost instantly
"I don't have anything to do with
lire Insurance, of course, still I see a
good many funny things in that line.
Not long ago. In Atlanta, there was a '
small merchant with perhaps u $500
stock. He went to the agent of one
of the well known companies and asked
to be Insured for $5,000. The agent said
he would send a man around to look
nt the store. Next day the merchant
was around at the olllce again. 'Mr.
Agent," said he. 'if I burn out how
much do I gel.* 'Two years in the
penitentiary,' replied the agent. The
insurance was never placed."

A well known Berkley gentleman,
who is a staunch advocate of temper- I
ance. was the victim of a gi ucsome
practical joke the other evening. A
friend of his filled a small vial with
the purest water he could obtain, and
when the temperance man came over,
presented him with the vial and asked
him what Us contents were. The un?
suspecting victim sniffed nround the
mouth of the vtal for awhile, tasted the
contents critically and returned the
outfit to his friend, remarking that he
did not know what the solution was.
A well authenticated story is now going
the rounds to the effect that this gen?
tleman, who has been posing for years
as an advocate of temperance, does not
ever know the taste or sight of water.

"I verily believe all children arc
born thieves," said a gentleman noted
for his sterling honesty. "I am a living
example. When I was very small my
mother had a ten gallon jar of prunes
in a closet. I found these prunes one
day and thoughtlessly put a handful ,
in my pocket. When I got off by my- |
self I ate them. This was the first
step I ever remember taking on the
downward road to ruin. . I repented my I
visit to the jar after that several times
a day, until I had eaten all the prunes,
but about n handful. At first tlie idea
that I was doing wrong never struck
me, but after awhile I began to think
over the mailer, to wonder what was
going to happen when my depredations
were discovered, and then I began to
realize the enormity of my sin, but
by this time I had contracted the prune
habit and could not break it. Evory
time I got within sight of that closet
door an Irresistible Impulse drove me
to open it and to get more prunes,
fine day my mother went to the jar to
get some of the fruit for dinner, .and
so the theft was discovered. Of course,
on the Impulse of the moment, I de?
nied all knowledge of the prunes and
suggested that the rats might have
eaten them. This was laughed to
scorn, for the nits would certainly have
left a few seed behind as a souvenir
of their visits, and I hadn't left any?
thing much but the jar. I went to bed
that night feeling like a. whipped cur.
I don't believe I got to sleep before
daylight. Next day my conscience hurt
me like a boil, and next night I couldn't
sleep for wondering what was going to
become of me. I ended the agony by
owning up to tlie crime. I believe I
was patted on the head for finally
telling the truth, but 1 know the liver
was almost licked out of me for steal?
ing the prunes. I daro say there Is
hardly a man In the community who
cannot recall some similar incident of
his early youth."

WHAT IT MEANS.
A Baking Powder Had to Be Chosen
That Could Be ItcUed On.
It has been referred to as remarkable
that the United States Government, In
fitting^ out jts expedition for the relief
of the whalers Imprisoned in the Arctic
Sen, should have selected and Included
Royal Baking Powder among its sup
piles and no other.
This is hardly to be wondered at. The
superior quality of the Royal made Its
use upon this occasion almost Indispen?
sable. The Royal Baking Powder, R is
well undeistood, is so carefully and per?
fectly made that it will keep fresh in
all climates under variable degrees of
temperature and moisture during long
sea voyages, etc. It will therefore do
Its work uniformly and perfectly at the
Poles and under the Equator as well as
in the UnP.ed States.
The Royal is regularly and continu?
ously selected for use at our army
posts, In the navies of this country and
Great Britain upon the llcets of merch?
ant vessels that cover the oceans, irre?
spective of the Hag they fly.
All fills means that the Royal is an
invaluable article for home use also.
It means that It has qualities peculiar
to itself which make Its usefulness be?
yond that possible for the ordinary
baking powder lo attain.
