he Tragedy of Little Things That
Are Lef t Undone.
The judge and spectators in a Kan
sas City courtroom laughed when a
usband testified that his wife gave
im only "mechanical kisses"'
Then the lawyers devoted many min
utes to the question, "What is a me
hanical kiss?" They decided that It
was a salutation given only. through a
sense of duty, and then they laughed
They didn't go far enough. They
might have called it a tragedy.
With most women affection lasts. It
urns as strongly in old age as in gold
en youth. A caress means a world of

Some men forget. They grow care
less. Carelessness is often a species of
selfishness. Oance it was a privilege to
ess a lover's kiss on the lips of a
wife at the door when leaving in the
morning, again as a warm greeting

And one morning the man forgot the
caress and lost himself in business.
And a shadow fell on a romance, and
the woman wept She tried to be brave
nd sensible. She tried to laugh at the
silly fear that he didn't care for her.
She assured herself a hundred times
that it was such a little thing and that
t was natural for him to forget and
that it was unreasonable for her to ex
pect the joy of the honeymoon through
ife. She wiped away her tears and re
solved to hide her grief and be kind,.
And the man never kncw. Perhaps
some day he went into court and com
plained that he bad been the recipient

For Tender Feet.
After dancing for a little while many
people's feet get very tender and un
omfortable. If you are troubled in
this way, try this plan: Put Ivy leaves~
next the soles of your feet, inside the
rtockings. Cut out the hard center rib,
Lay the leaves as smoothly as possible,
draw your stockings carefully over so
s not to disarrange them, and see that
your shoes fit just comfortably. For
walking in warm weather this is an ex
ellent plan and prevents the feet from
getting tender.--New York News.

FAMOUS FOR FAT.
Daniel Lambert, Who Died In 1509,
Got Too Obese to Wabble.
The fame of Daniel Lambert as a
champion among fat men in England,
if not in the world, still remains un
rivaled. Daniel was born at Leicester
in 1770 and died in 1800 at Stamford.
The grandson of a celebrated cock
fighter and addicted to sport through
out his life, his dimensions were not
extraordinary, and his habits were not
different from those of other lads un
til he was fourteen years old. When
twenty-three years of age, however, he
turned the scale at thirty-two stone,
an, although he is recorded to have
been then able to walk from Woolwich
to London, at the time of his death, in
his fortieth year, he had attained the
prodigious weight of fifty-two stone, or
72 pounds, and was more or less help
less. He was a modest man, and when
he had achieved physical greatness
fame was thrust upon him. He was
for a long time unwilling to be made
a show of, but he gained a more than
local reputation, and people traveled
from far to see him, resorting to vari
ous devices in order to be allowed to
do so. At length the prospect of profit
overcame his resolution, and for four
years before his death he exhibited
himself in London and in the prov
He was apparently a man of some
wit, for once, before he permitted the
public to gaze upon him, an inquisitive
person had gained access to his pres
ence by pretending to be a fellow
sportsman interested in the pedigree of
a mare, whereupon Lambert promptly
replied, "She was bred by Impertinence
out of Curiosity." Before the days of
Daniel Lambert, Edward Bright of
Maiden was a well known fat man, al
though his name no longer lingers as
a household word. H~e died in 1750 at
the age of thirty years, weighing forty
two stone and seven pounds, and is
stated to have been an active man till
a year or two before his death, when
his corpulency so overpowered his
strength that his life was a burden and
his death a deliverance. Both Bright
and Lambert seem to have been genial,
good humored fellows and very popular
among those who visited them. In
deed popularity.- seems -to -be te'ots of
the corpulent -in fact as well as in fle

lasting glory, and the names of.Daniel
