happy man vanished
The reporter felt his externil niment
all over, hut failed to find anything for
me mending ntireau to experiment upon
Finally he liethought him that there was
but one button on the back of his Pnnce '
Allien coat. What do they have those
two Imttous on the back of a coat for,

of buttons had caused the reporter much

mending bureau As yet it consists of a
cingle good sized mom. light and airy,
and containing sewing machines, work
tables and chiirs Two or three middle
aged ladies and three or four oung lidies
were seated at unit the room, busily plying
the needle. One was threading a needle,
anl she performed tint intricate ojiera

the reporter envious a he recalled pist
struggles of hi own. A tall young lady
with nn amused expression Inherelnpicnt
dark eyes asked the blushing reporter
1 it he wished to hsi e mended He re
s. mod an inclination to say tint his
heart had suffered a compound fracture,
and coyly explained that another button
on his coat tails was the essential to his
happiness The young lid) smiled and
asked the reporter to remoie his coat
Be.ng an unmarried mm, unused to
feminine so-iety, he blushed like a red,
red rose; then, rememlienng with glid
rje that he had put on his pink stnpeel
shirt in the morning, he took courage,
took off Ills coat nnd accepted a proffered
.chair. The other ladies kept on sewing
and pa d no attention to the customer.
THE COWFirT BCREUT
There were two other customers in the
.room, both minus coats One wis hanrg
a buttou sewed on his sh'l cuff, and the
other hid his coat up for repairs The
ladies sewed rapidly, nnd the three con- 1
tracts were soou completed The re-
porter was assisted into his coat by the
tall, dark eyed young lidv. This alone
was worth the price of admis-ion, aid
file cents was all that was charges! for I
the replicing of the button, tor which the 1
assurance was giitn that it would stai as
long as tl e coat were worn
"Wo have no regular scale of
price as yet," said the manageress of the
establishment, "as the mending hureiu
has only been running a .few days It i
the flr-t insti'ution of the kind in the
svest. though there is one in Xework

will keep wanlrotics in gixnl repair. Wo

The reporter realized full) the truth of
these statements There are care es

their girineuts in Kid repair, but they are
In the minority The great majority will
prefer to have their clothes kept in onler,
and if they have no women folk of their

be darned nt low rates, and money will

should spend the day She insisted on
going one wiv and he the other. They
eliputed for half a moment, and then he
turned around and deliberately gave her a
kick which lifted her aliotit six Inches
from the sidewalk, to comince her that
his way was the best. She turned quickly
and begin kicking him in return The
way she brouuht her number ten boots

kind of argument as he. The) kicked at
each other for about five minutes, the

work be of such a character ag to debase
or to ennoble The pencil of the artist is
bribed to make to make the den of vice
doubly alluring to tho intoxicated senses

the religion devotee risis almost to ec
