Woman With tlte Sable Furs

she was entering or leaving

I mentally shrugged my should-,

me as excedingly haughty,
self-sufficient, and overhearing. So
I set her down in my own mind,

Some one asked me. to assist with j
a church supper. I had promised,'

The supper room was 'crowded.!
The places at the tables were taken,!
and many were waiting their turn. j
I saw the woman with the sahJe furs!
come in and look about with her;
haughty, self-sufficient glance. As!
her eye swept camly over the room,
it gave the impression that it saw
everything there was to be seen. It j
gave its clear, broad sweep, and
rested at last upon the table where j
two young women with little chil-;
dren in their arms were trying to j

of people stood in the centre of the

A querulous old body sat back ir>
a corner seat. She smelled of snufi"
and tobacco. She wore a knitted
hood of the stvle of a quarter century
back. Her shawl was heavv
aud cumbersome. She had.come in
on the eleven o'clock accommodation
after a ride of several wearv
hours, and was conupelled to wait
until three o'clock for the train on
the main line.
' "But I had a fine dinner," she told
mc with satisfaction. "At the hotel
everything you could think of. and
servants, and all fixed up to kill."
"Yon did not go alone!" I ex-|
claimed. The only hotel of any
importance was several squares

in on the same train I did. When

me to go. She said I shouldn't

Making Better Men.
We should always remember that
it is quite possible to imf-ove the
conditions and outward surroundings
of life without in any marked
way improving life itself The man
who has come up fiom a threeroomed
cottage to live in a lumdredthousand-dollar
mais-ou may be '<
better man or a worse man than lie
was; the house lie lives in will never
help us to decide the question of his
moralitv or of his real worth. Clean
streets and improve:! social conditions
are good. and we must stiive
for them with persistent determination,
but if in getting* them we do
not at the same time improve the
quality of life that is lived in the
midst of them, we will not be making
any progress that is worth while.
The Habit of Not Feeling Well.
Few people realize that their ailments
are 'largely self-induced, says
Success. They get into a habit of
not feeling* well. If they get up in
the morning with a slight headache,
or some other trifling indisposition,
* r * 1 ii. _ .
instead 01 trying- ro rise aoove mese
conditions, they take a positive
pleasure in expatiating upon their
feelings to any one who will listen.
Instead of combating the tendency
to illness by filling the lungs with
pure fresh air. they dose themselves
with "headache tablets," or some
patent specific "warranted to cure"
whatever ill. they think they are suffering
from.; They begin to pity
themselves and try to attract pity
and sympathy from others. Unconsciously,
by detailing and dwell-i
- _ ,1
mg upon tneir symptoms, tney reenforce
the first simple suggestion
of illness by a whole army of
thoughts and fears and images of
disease, until they are unfitted to do
a day's work in their homes or offices.
It is said that man is a lazy animal.
We are all more or less prone
to indolence, and it is fhe easiest and
most natural thing in the world for
young people to accustom themselves
to lying down or lounging on
a sofa because they think they are
tired or not well. Much of so-called
"invalidism" is simple laziness, fostered
and indulged in from childhood.
There is great danger that
orirlt; \v1ir> arp rlfliratp whilp rrrmvincr
lip, and lounge around the house
and lie down whenever they feel the
least hit out of sorts, will form a
habit of invalidism when they reach
maturity. How often do we sec
such girls ''brace up" at once whenever
anything happens which interests
or excites them? An invitation
to a reception or concert, or
any other pleasant social occasion
acts like a tonic. For the time being
an instantaneous cure is effect
ed. They are as well as anybody?
until after the entertainment.?
