One morning after breakfastMlss Grey toot
her knitting and the Church Times and sat
down on the veranda. A moment later, to her
disgust, Charlie Lester and Capt. Petrie came
out of the breakfast room, lit their pipes, and
after a polite "Good morning," toot their
seats a few yard3 from her.
Hiss Grey sniffed the tobacco-tainted air
and was about to rise and ostentatiously re
move herself from the infected zone, when she
heard a scrap ot conversation between the two
young men which entirely altered her deter
mination. "I wonder when 3Iagsle will be down?" said
Lester. "I want to tell her."
"Oh, you're too late," said Petrie; "I've

PASSING THE BILL SLOWLY
Large Nuiclie- of tariff Amendments
Disponed of at Yesterday's Session.
DEMOCRATS SHOW IMPATIENCE
They Accuse the Henublicaus of Filibustering;,
Buttko matter Strenuously Deny It Sena
tor Worhe.s Presents Estimates of Kovo
nue Which are Criticised as Conjectural:
The Senate made some progress yesterday.
It was not remarkable but it was rather en
couraging. Three paragraphs, chlornl hy
drate, chloroform, and eoal tar colors were
gotten rid of in the first few minutes after tho
tariff bill was taken up.
Mr. Aldrich offered a new paragraph to
place a duty of 15 per ctnt. additional on
coal-tar preparations not provided for in the
Tho amondment was defeated 21 to SO.
Mr. Voorhees, chairman of the Finance
Committee, then interrupted the proceedings
to present a report showing the customs reve
nue which would be raited under the turiH
bill B3 It passed the Hou3 and as modified by
the amendments ponding in the Senatu up to
May 7 upon the basis of last year's importa
tiona. Mr. Allison thought that some estimate of
the revenue produced by thi3 bill should be
furnished, based upon the estimated increased
or diminished Importations resulting Irom
tho reduction of dutivs. He would alo like
to have un estimate, of the increased pivenho
which would result from the changes pro
posed by Mr. Vest to the income-tax provision
of the bill
Mr. Vest, in reply, stated that the ilgures
contained in the rt'porr presented by Mr.
Voorheeshnd been mmlo upon the basis of
last year's importation?, as all such estimates j
were. Estimates of increased or decreased
importation? resulting from change in duties i
weru iitx'itsumy conjectural. Jii. i'.ufc
mau, n e' high protection authority. Mr.
Vest said, believed and tustified batore the
Ways and Mrani Committee that Increased
raW would produee increased revenue, jir.
Walker, on the contrary. I Kjiievwl that a re
duction of rates would increase revenue by
Mr. V;t then stated that the Itopubilcan
conjectures were filibustering. Mr. Aldrich
nnd several other Seiator denied this.
Then there was another rush of lus!ne-f-.
ilr. Quny suggested th.'.t tho oxide of cobalt,
dutlabWat IM per cent, under the Jcues
amendment, was nowsubject ton xpecJIle duty
of 0 vents the equivalent ot L0 per cent. He
asked that 23 ceois Lo su'-st.tuted for 0 tier
cent. Mr. Jono- accepted tho suu-titute.
Then a long luct of hanges wer trade,
putting drugs not Included In tho bill on the
iree.list. Increasing the duty on sulphuric
Mr. Aldrich then moved to increase the
duty ou crude glycerine to 14 celts a j.onn0.
This was lost, also an amendment by Mr.
Lodge to inerea-.i the duty on the refluod
Mr. Aldrich moved to transfer Indigo nnd
Its extra?! ? from the fr&j l!-t to the dutiable
list at three-fourths of a cent per pound.
Tho extracts of do wood?, Mr. Aldrich ex
plained, were dd'.inblu In the bill at 10 per
cent, 'ihat being tt.e ea?o he saw no reason
why extiatts of indigo r also dye stuffs) should
not" lie similarly protected.
Mr. Vest called intention to too fact that
Gen. GriiEt. tweuty-thrrn) years ago, declared
that all dye stufN suould bo mi the free ll-t.
Mr. Aldrich replied that Mr. Vest's regard lor
Gen. Grant's opinion would have some
weight If he and his iom:nitte had not
placed n duty on every other dye stuff ex
Itepubllcau amendments increasing dittiei
on inUi-. iodine, and other articles were then
merci'esHiy voted down. The Jones magnesia
nnd morphia duties were then pa'-MK.'.

Don't wear the dotted veil. It is injurious
to the eyes. There is some mibstuucu used in
stiffening or coloring tho net which 13 poison

The teachers of certain methods in gym
nasium practice, undertaken for both grace
and health, declare that beauty of face as well
as form Is largely dependent upon them.
A largo sponge hung In tho room at night or
In day time, If it can be behind a convenient
screen and kept constantly wet, will greatly
assist In keeping a room cold, or a wet cloth
hung in tho window over the tlind will cool
the room wt if n shower had fallen; all know
how fresh water sprinkled on the pavement in
frot of al windows and doors will freshen
tht hot, dry air.
Every wifo should have her own bank ac
count, however small. It gives her a feeling
of security and Independence that no amount
of money gicn Lerfrom her husband's pocket
can ever do. Every woman likes the reeling
of the importance that is attached to drawing
and signing her own chock, and It teaches her
the real meaning of business. The returned
check secures her a receipt, which it is aLso
well to keen in caso of emergency.
"So," responded Cnpt retrie; "but that
made no difference."
'It would to me," said Lester with a "mile.
"And to me," said tho captain, "but it
didn't to her. I reminded her nf it. and she
said that it made no odds she wanted to
hear all I know directly. So we stood in the
passage, and" .
Miss Grey was n woman who never allowed
herself to be turned from tho path of duly,
however painful that patli might bo to others.
She soon made up her mind as to what she
must do, and having corao to a resolution,
she laid the whole matter before an informal
committee of three irreproachable nnd austere
matrons whom she selected from among her
The immediate result of their conference
was, that when Maggie Lester, looking very
fresh and blooming niter her morning gallop,
came in to luncheon nnd took her place ct
the table, no fewer than four elderly ladles
put down their knives and forks, rose from
their chairs, and solemnly stalked out of the

But nobody knew what was up. and to all
appearances Maggie, least of all, for sho
cheerfully began her lunch, merely remark

A filth lady, sittins by, overheard these re

There's very little satisfaction in trying to
work reform?. Anyway, that's what the
social philosopher says, and every one knows
her admits that her befrixzled little head is as
full of new schemes as a Congressman is of
tariff talk. And she had good reasons for
making that statement, too, tnys the Chicago
liecord. The other day sho said:
'I don't believe in putting yourself out to
6ave other pcoplo trouble. Sow, some time
ago I went to a dentist oh, such a charming
dtntis-t, with pretty hair and courteous man
nersand he sawed and hammered and
drilled inside my mouth until I wanted to ask
hita where ho learned the carpenter's trade.
And all the time he kept talking away verv
pleasantly. Us told me about his wife and
his tiabv,"who wa3 just culting a tooth, and
he helil one-sided arguments on political
questions. He was so very charming that it
never occurred io mo to ask about such ple
beian incidents as fees; so. after he had
tortured mo nnd left my mouth feeling as dis
abled as if I had been chewing tacks, I
"Weil, It wasn't long before I got the bill,
and I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked
at it." continued the philosopher. "Kis
charges were positively horrifying. It was a
sum Targe enough to support a family of six
for a year.
" "3Iy dear,' said I to mysflf, 'don't you let
this man ini.ose upon vou. You must face
the enemy and toll him to cut his bill down to
about one-third the original amount. It isn't
the money- it's the principio of the thing,
and If he treats you that way ho'll treat others
Just thc same.'
"So with all those wise plans stowed away
ready, for use I pocketed the bill and strutted
off feeling like a whole Industrial army. I
bearded tho lien in his den. I drow r. long
breath and straightened up my shoulders so
as to prepare for the lecture I was about to
'The dentist appeared.
"Urn nh how-de-do?' I stuttered. 'I
thought I'd fomu nud pay this little bill.'
And that was the full extent of the awfal
scoldfng that .1 had planned and rehearsed
for thriv days. It always makes mo mad when
anything Itales out that way. and tho next
time I go into the reform business I fancy
you'll know It."
That's what thn so'ial philosopher says
now. but it p. '.bly won't bo long before
she'll be In a squabble with a street car-conductor
or acting the part of a peacemaker in
a bootblaek fight.
The childish mind is ever a seeker after
A youthful father, who was playing escort
to Ids two daughters, aged respectfully 4 nnd
S years, found it a bit trying at times to sup
ply satisfactory answers to their questions.
A passengor who sat opposite the interesting
ttlo caught some of the sweet-toned interro
gations: "I'apa, are all policemen fat when they're
made into policemen, or do the clothes make
'urn grow big stomachs.'"
"Say. papa, if my name wasn't Tootsy,
what would it havo been?"
