Nobody c:tu dispute the sincerity of

The red pepper trick is the common
est. The jokers scatter it where the
bassoon and trombone players are like
ly to suck it up. The result is chokes
and sneezes. Sometimes the epidemic
reaches even into the strings, but of
course the players on the wind instru
ments get it worst.
As a matter of fact, the jokers are
playing with tire. "A confirmed
sneezer caa't get a job in a good or
chestra, no matter how good a per
former he may be." said a consistent
concert goer. "Think of the effect of
a rousing sneeze on a pianissimo!
Why, it would spoil a whole concert,
one sneeze would. A conductor has to
guard against a sneeze as he does
against inebriety."—New York Sun.
A Lucky Game of Chess.
A story is told of the Moorish prince
Abul Hejex. who was thrown into
prison for sedition by his brother Mo
hammed, king of Granada. There he
remained for several years until the
king, fearing he might escape, placed
himself at the head of a fresh revolt
and seized the crown, ordering one of
his pashas to see to his Immediate ex
ecution. Abu! Hejex was playing at
chess when the pasha came and bade
him prepare for death. The prince
asked for two hours' respite, which
was refused. After earnest entreaty
he obtained permission t<> finish his
game. He was in no hurry about the
moves, we are told, and well for him
he was not. for before an hour had
elapsed a messenger brought the news
that Mohammed had been struck dead
by apoplexy, and Abul was forthwith
proclaimed king of Granada. It was
Indeed a small favor for the pasha to
grant, but it altered the whole current
of the king's career.
The courage of a lion at bay, erreat
as it is. is no greater than that of the
buffalo, and he must yield his scepter
to the elephant, declares 11. L. Tangye
in his book, "In the Torrid Sudan." as
to courage, size, Btrength and intelli
gence. It is a temptation to declare
that the elephant possesses a sense of
humor. A herd of elephants once fell
in with a train of donkeys. Their
attention concentrated on the load the
donkeys carried. With all the mischief
of monkeys, the loads were torn
asunder and their contents distributed
over half the province. At Bor. on
the Mountain Nile, the elephants were
at one time full of practical jokes.

Dear Elsa—"lt's more than all a
matter of looks." We were talking on
that ever Interesting topic of converse
tion to women, bow to be pretty at
forty, and the above remark was
made by Mrs. Van S.. who of all per
sons is a living example of her own
theories. "And." she continued, "self
culture in the sense of personal ap

cold cream and a face unmarred by
your visits, you horrid old man!' And
Father Time bows himself out more
pleased than otherwise, muttering,
'There are no old women any more.' "
We are certainly learning to grow
old gracefully. But this does not
suggest a sixty-year-old face in a six
year-old mob cap, nor does it exactly
mean the adoption of little girl modes,
which has been the curious whim of
Dame Fashion for the past few sea

acquired the sweet dignity of manner
which years and experience bring, to

to dress with the taste and care that
harmonize and do not conflict with
the passing of years. Our grand
mothers were old at forty, and at
thirty-five a woman would have been
looked upon as mad if she thought of
beginning a career. Nowadays wo
men's work, whether it be in the home
or in public places where women are
forced—and a few of them have forced
themselves—is being done by women
in their forties, and they are eager,
good looking, popular and look with
contempt upon the "chit of a girl."
Today the woman of forty Is
"young." There is no middle age, and
the age which is considered "old" is—
well, it is always to come and can be
applied correctly only to the woman
who looks it. And that she looks it is
usually her own fault, either by rea
son of disposition or" neglect of her
personal appearance. Lack of exer
cise and accumulated fat make for
middle :iged appearance, but person
ally 1 think the worst horrors of old
age are the thin face, scraggy neck
and bony frame. A famous beauty's
advice on how to keep young is, "Be
cheerful, keep busy and don't get fat."
In fact, the woman who wants to
look attractive in middle life and aft
erward must recognize the power of
mind over matter, the great science of
exorcising the will with a definite pur
pose. I have in mind the wise words
of a woman who looked young enough
to be her daughter's sister. She was
no beauty doctor, but her prescrip
tion is worth keeping, "If you don't
want to grow old get rid of the old age
thought." Don't speak of yourself as
old or think of yourself as old. Get in
terested in something outside of your
self and the rapid passing of your own
years. The age thought—the constant
dwelling on your advancing years and
the lack of outside interests—makes a
woman old at thirty. It was, I think,
tfhis attitude of mind that made the
middle aged woman of previous gen
erations so uninteresting to herself
and to her neighbors. Well, even
grandmothers are not socially shelved
these days, for a silver haired old lady
was recently the only attendant at her
