REALLY OLD FASHION
TODAY'8 MODE COPIED FROM,
THAT OF THE PAST.
Nothing New About the Much-Discussed
Designs Which Have Found
Favor With the Present Gen
eration of Good Dressers.
Women that, in ohedlence to fash
ion, sport a high standing feather on
coiffure or bonnet, and thus are a
nuisance In public places where spec
tators behind them would like to see
the stage, are merely Imitating their
English sisters of the eighteenth cen
tury. Some one wrote In the Times
of 1705: "At all elegant assemblies
there Is a room set apart for the
ladles to don their feathers, as it Is
Impossible to wear them In any car
riage with a top. The lusters are nlso
removed on this account, and the
doors are carried up to the celling.
A well dressed lady who nods with
dexterity can give a friend a little
tap upon the shoulder across the room
without Incommoding the dancers.
The ladles' feathers are now general
ly carried In the sword case at the
back of the carriage.
In Berlin the number of men' be
tween seventy and eighty Is 12,898,
while the number of women Is 25,204.
In Greater Berlin the figures are 20,

number of men between eighty and
ninety In Berlin Is 2,036, and the num

"Lady Jockeys" promise to be a
regular feature of races In France,
hut the woman cab driver, the "femme
cocher," Is disappearing from the
streets of Paris. SIt years ago there
were at least 100; now there are only
iix or seven, and of these all but one
will soon disappear. The survivor
says that at first men rushed for
cabs driven by women, and gave gen
erous tips, but that was when the
woman cab driver was celebrated
In song and in the revue. Then came
neglect. This reminds us that about
half a century ago Mrs. Cuyler of
London was known as the "Cabman's
Terror," for she knew the distance
between any two points and handed
the exact fare. And now there is a
woman in Tendon who is accused of
this hobby: She takes taxlcabs and
compels the drivers to sue her for
The hobby of certain swell women
in Paris Is s. more amiable one. They
make shoes. The Daily Chronicle
says that this a reversion to a Lon
don mania of over a century ago.
Mrs. Charles Calvert wrote In her
diary on May 4, 1808: "I begin a new
science today shoemaking. It is all
the fashion. I had a master with me
for about two hours, and I think I
shall be able to make very nice
shoes." And in the same month Lady
Sarah Spencer wrote to her brother:
' am today In a state of great van
ity. I have, to my eternal glory be
it spoken, made a pair of shoes.
There is for you! So if all other
trades fail I shall certainly establish
myself cross-legged at the corner of
an alley-and earn a livelihood In the
midst of leather, awls, and hammers,
in the evening Hairlet and I divide
our time between muslck and shoe
making, which is now the staple trade
of the family." Philip Halo in Bos
Almost Victim of Tiger.
A thrilling experience with a tiger
occurred to a man named Campbell,
son of the superintendent of police of
Hazarlbngh, India, a few days ago.
Campbell was cycling from Hazari
bagh to Hazariabagh Station, a dis
tance of forty-two miles, when at the
twentieth mile, he noticed a road roll
er on the side of the road, and as he
Approached this object a huge tiger
wiilch had been sleeping suddenly
sprang up and barred .further prog
ress. Campbell, who has only one
arm, did not have any other weapon
than an ordinary small pistol. Being
an experienced hunter, seeing the
man-eater about to spring, he dis
mounted his cycle and placing the
machine in front of him, scared the
tiger away. The animal made its way
Into the jungle, which is very thick
at that part of the road, and young
Campbell, mounting his bicycle made
off. There has been a large increase
In man-eaters in the Hazaribagh dis
trict of late, owing to the decrease In
the rewards for their capture.
Had Her Eye on Him.
A well known writer was present re
cently at a dress rehearsal of a com
edy played by amateurs at a London
theater. The rehearsal went well, but
the hero, whom we will call B ,
seemed rather hard and cold. The
novellBt sat in the stalls next to a
charming lady of middle- age. She
said, at the end of the third act: "It
goes beautifully, doesn't It?"
"Beautifully said the gentleman.
"But B doesn't make love to that
pretty girl In as ardent a manner as I
could wish. -His love-making, in fact,
strikes me as very tame and spirit
less." The lady frowned. "He won't put
any more spirit In It while I've got my
eye on blm, let me tell you," she said.
"I'm Mrs. B ."

NEW IDEA OF MOTHER-IN-LAW
Possibly This Is One of the Arrange
ments That Would Do Away With
"John Blank has just been telling
me of his trouble at home," said the
lean man, aB he settled back In the
car seat bcsldo an acquaintance. "I
guess ho tells pretty near everybody,
so-I'm not letting the cat out of the
bag by speaking of It."
"Oh, yes," murmured the friend,
"his mother and his wife don't get
along together, and Wank Is between
the devil and the deep sea. Say
when do you think this weather will
"Dunno,'' replied the lean man.
"But say I don't see why there's got
to be so much mother-in-law trouble.
Now you take my family. Mother is
dependent on me and she lives with
us. According to most people, that
would spell sure trouble. Hut'In our
case It hasn't worked out that way."
"Your mother and your wife ate
both fine women," commented the
"I guess that's it," agreed the lean
man. "You see. I didn't marry till
middle age, and mother and I lived
together alone up to that time.
"Then I met Florence. She was a
successful business woman. It takes
a lot of good hard sense to be that,
and she had it. Well, we married,
and she came right Into my home,
with mother welcoming her as a
"Now, what did my mother do?
Did she sit back and sulk, or did she
get up nnd assert her supremacy
"She did not. She held a business
session with my wife, made a state
ment of assets and liabilities, as you
might say, turned the business over
to my wife, declared she was willing
to be a consulting partner if neces
sary, but that it was her Intention
and earnest desire to be relieved of
rpsponslbillties and take a rest.
"It's working out beautifully. My
wife Is the manager of the household.
I believe that she and mother have
a sort of directors' meeting once in
awhile, but mother has refrained from
giving any advice that wasn't askek.
and has never insisted upon the car
rying out of the advice she has given.
She is a pleasant and honored mem
ber of our family. In times of need
she has thrown herself into the work
without saving herself, and we owe
at least one of our children's lives to
her care." Edna K. Wooley In the
Reason Enough for Tears.
The telephone bell rang sharply.
Dobbs recognized his wife's voice at
the other end.
"No," he said. "I won't forget it.
But what on earth is the matter with
your voice? Have you taken cold al

"No n-no-no but I've been crying
horribly. So has your mother."
Dobbs puckered up his brows and
whistled softly to himself,

Great Violinist's Kind Act.
An iinpiestie example of kindness
given by Pngauiui, the great musi-
'au. One cold Christmas day he was
Mns along the streets of London
hen he saw a poor blind man playing
n a violin trying to earn a mite with
hich to buy food to satisfy his hun-
er. Hut his tunf-b lacked power to
ove the hearts of people and he re-
ived uo lesnonte. The poor blind
mn stood hungry in the cold. As
agauini approachd him, he kindly
. Ued him on the back and said,
Won't the people give you any
noney?" "No,' was the reply; "they
A'on't open their window; it is too
cold." "Well, lend me your violin,"
said the great musician, "and I will
see If they will open them for me."
Paganini played as never before. The
windows opened as if by magic. The
people listened, and money was
thrown plentifully to the beggar. The
sweet violinist picked it up, gave It to
the blind man, and told him to go
home out of the cold.
Lives That Help.
Certainly, in our own little sphere
it Is not the most active peoplo to
whom we owe the most. Among the
common people whom we know, It is
not necessarily those who are busiest,
not those who, meteorlike, are ever
on the rush after some visible change
and work it Is the lives, like the
stars, which simply pour down on us
the calm light of their bright and faith
ful being, up to which we look and out
of which we gather the deepest calm
and courage. It seems to me that
there is reassurance here for many of
us who seem to have no chance for ac
tive usefulness. We can do nothing
for our fellow men. But still it 1b
good to know that we can be some
thing for them; to know (and this we
may know surely), that no man or
woman of the humblest sort can really I
be strong, gentle; pure and good,
without somebody being helped and
comforted by the very existence of
that goodness. Exchange.
3HILD NESTS OF MUD
SOUTH AMERICAN BIRDS CON
STRUCT STRONG STRUCTURES.
As Small as the Robin, the "Caseras"
Demand a Luxurious Home and
Have the Ability to Put It
Visitors to Argentina or Uruguay
are surprised to see big wads of sun
baked mud perched upon trees, rocks,
the cross arms of telegraph poles, or
fence posts, and still more amazed
to learn that these curious masses
are the nests or birds not unlike our
rpbins. The people call the little ar
chitects caseras (housekeepers), or
horneroB (oven birds), for their build
ings resemble the dome shaped ovens
of clay that stand In every farmer's
dooryard, says the Youth's Compan
ion. When the autumn rains soften the
parched earth, pairs of these fore
handed birds gather beakfuls of the
sticky adobe soil, and mold it Into a
roughly globular form. They mix In,
very cleverly, a little horsehair, or
some line grass and rootlets, which
prevent the walls from cracking as
they bake Into sundrled brick. When
they have finished the outside, they
build a partition of mud Inside, near
the rounded entrance. The Inner
chamber thus formed is accessible on
ly by a small aperture at the top, and
la It they prepare a comfortable bed
of grass, or sometimes of feathers
The finished affair Is as big as a peck
measure, and may weigh eight or nine
pounds. It does not crumble away fot
two or three years, but the birds "build
a new home each season. The mother
bird lays five white eggs In the early
The country people like to have the
ovpii birds about their houses, and the
birds usually turn the doorway of
their nest toward a neighboring house
or road. One observer says that a
pair lived on the end of the protruding
roof beam of a ranchhouse, where all
the family enjoyed their lively ways
and shrill song One day one of the
birds was caught In a rattrap, and
when released, it flew with crushed
and dangling legs into the inner room
of its house, where it soon died. Its
mate stayed about, calling incessantlv
tor two or three days, and then dis
appeared. Soon It returned with a
new partner. Together they plastered
vp the entrance of the old nest with
fresh mud, and built a new home upon
The advantages of the oven likp
nest, especially when It has two
ooms, are many It completely con
ceals the brooding mother and young,
it shades both parents from the hot
un and the heavy showers, and th
outer chamber furnishes a sheltered
lodging at midday or during the night
for the father of the family. It can
be easily defended, too,
The caseras suffer, however, from
one bold and persistent enemy the
martins. These big swallows refuse
o breed anywhere except in an oven
bird's nest. If they cannot find an un
tenanted one they will oust the lirsf
nair of caseras they find from their
nug quarters Strangely enough the
voor owners seem unable to prevent
'he outrage, although they angrily
drive away all other birds that come
near their castle.
Forgers' Factory In Prison.
Banknotes made in prison forms the
recent astounding discovery made at
the prison in Peterhead, Aberdeen
shire, the largest convict establish
nent in Scotland. For some time
tradesmen in the district have been
defrauded by counterfeit Bank of Eng
land notes, and the police were
puzzled and baffled. Two Scotland
yard detectives were despatched to
Peterhead, and their investigations
show that the counterfeit notes eman
ated from the prison, where they were
made by convicts. The convicts, af
ter making the notes, passed them to
workmen, who were building a break
water in the vicinity, and received in
exchange tobacco and other article's.
The spurious notes were cleverly made
on paper that had been used in wrap
ping butter supplies for the prison. So
far, the police have failed to discover
the men who actually circulated the
notesi The -prison contains 400 con
victs at present, including about a
score of well known forgers.
Will Keep Cross Clean.
Now that the cross above St. Paul's
has been regilded It is not likely to be
allowed again to gather the accumula
tions of London's smoky atmosphere.
Hydrants have been placed in the lan
tern below the ball and cross, and by
means of a high-pressure supply they
will be utilized periodically to clean
the golden cross. The hydants have
been introduced as a result of an ex
periment last year, when It was found
that two powerful motor Are engines,
coupled together, were unable to throw
water from the ground level to the top
of the dome with sufficient force to be
of any use in case of fire. Dry mains
have now been laid to a considerable
height, with outlets at different points,
and from these the firemen will work
should the necessity arise, the engines
being coupled to the other ends of tho

hobo who bad sneaked into the office
