BOY ALTOC 2THER TC 0 FRANK.
Put Customer on to Trails Secret of
, His Boss.
Prof. Albert H. Smyth of Phila
delphia was talking about Benjamin
Franklin and the two hundredth an-
nlversary of his birth.
w "I am glaJ," ho said, "that this
anniversary was so largely observed.
Franklin, let our governor say what
ho will, was a great man.
"Franklin was eminently a prac
tical man," Prof. Smyth wont on.
'"I lie boy Franklin who walked Into
Philadelphia eating a roll had the
elements of success already well de
veloped In htm. Had ho got a place
with a grocer' hero Prof. Smyth
smiled "ho would not have conduct
ed himself in the manner or a boy
whom I heard about yesterday.
"This boy stood behind the counter
in a grocery when a w,oman entered
and asked for a pound of Java cof
fee. "The boy dipped his scoop in tho
"Then suddenly tho woman ex
claimed: "Oh, no! Tho minister is cominr
to dinner to-morrow. Give mo th'
best Bourbon Mocha, please.'
"But the boy kept on ladling th
8 coffee out of tho same bin and th
I woman said angrily to h'm:
" 'Didn't you hear mo say I waute.
I Mocha instead of Java?'
j "'Yes'm,' said tho boy, 'but th.i
I don't make no difference in the blr.
only in tho price.'"
U Did Not Distress Her.
8 Pimbllng was universal in Wash
ington seventy years ago, and at
parties a roTi was alwr-s set aside
for the whLt players. On one oc
casion a young woman from Boston,
under the cl-"peronage of Mrs. Henry
Clry, passed tho room where tht
statesman was playing at a cablne1
"Oh, Mrs. Clay." said the maltlrn
with the N-w .England conscience,
"doesn't It distress you to have Mr."
Clay p- -?"
"Oh, c'--ir no," was tho reply. "lie
most always wins."
Russian Soldiers' Wastefulness.

YOUR HAIR SHOULD BE L)RAB.
That Is the Fashionable Color, So an
"Deep auburn and too dr.ib shades
are tho fashionable colors In hair this
seai on," said tho woman who makes
hair coloring a speciality, at placidly
as though she were commenting on
the state of the weather or tho ad
vance style In dress goods.
"One of my customers has to my
knowledge worn five different colors
or shades on her wavy tresses. Hav
ing been blessed with medium brown
hair by nature she became a ravish
ing blonde when the fashion for
bleaching first came in.
"Next she took to tltlan red after a
trip to the art galleries of Europe.
Tnen she thought she would be moro
attractive as a brunette, and now her
Lair is drab.
"The last Is by far tho most popu
lar of all for the reason that Is most
dlfTlcult to obtain, and then It Is pret
ty generally becoming, and It happens
that women who aro born with this
particular color of hair are almost al
"How is it done? Well, in case of a
woman whose hair is dark a bleach
must first be used before the dye is
applied. With women whoso hair has
turned gray It is a still simpler prob
lem. Tho color lasts a year, while
the head can bo washed and even salt
water bathing does not affect it."
