The girl who overdresses when she goes

PRETTY NEEDLE CASE.
A dainty needle book filled with a good
assortment of needles might be fashioned
by the. girl herself working under the
watchful eye of some experienced per
son. Instructions given as to which si^o
of needle should bo used on different
fabrics would be helpful, as an improper
tool will make the most simple task
laborious. The illustration of a needle
case or book requires little description.
The covers are made of chamois skin,
and the design painted upon it in oil
cole-rs. Leaves of fine flannel are dain
tily scalloped around the edges and the
book is closed with a pretty bow of
ribbon. Carnation red ribbons would
blend prettily with the soft buff of the
chamoise leather. The fancy border may
be painted or embroidered as preferred.
CURIOUS WAYS OF THE SEX.
The ladies sat in the railway station
parlor waiting the arrival of the 1C
o'clock train. They were mostly strang
ers to one another, and the irrepressible
American female who asks questions was
alive and vibrant with curiosity. She
had to find out about her fellow travel
ers or burst. Next her sat a woman of
the old school, who wore her hair in
white puffs and the first article in whose
creed of politeness was that a delicate
reserve in regard to piivate affairs, iier
own and other people's, is the distin
guishing mark of a lady. The irrepressi
ble one turned to the lady with white
puffs and asked:
"Where do you come from?" The iady
with white puffs stared, not to say glar
ed, and answered wearily:
"Oh, from all over. From many places."
As an opening this was not promis
ing. The irrepressible eyed her neigh
bor on the other side a moment and de
cided that she was a more hopeful sub
'■Did you just get in this morning?"
she asked. The neighbor signified that
"Was the water rough between P-itta
burg and Cleveland?" The neighbor on
that side also stared and then answered,
"You don't come from Cleveland to PictsI-
burg by water."
"Oh," remarked the woman who asked
questions. But immediately she plucKed
up confidence again and asked, "Are '
you married?" . !
She did not catch the answer, bur
thought it was "yes"' and added, 'How
many children have you?"
But thtj roar of trie coming train pre
venteel her from hearing the reply, anel
thus one block of that knowledge which
she was dying to acquire was lrist to
the irrepressible. Fate, who delights in
grotesqu? contrasts and the knocking to
gether of sharp cornered" people, willed
that the lady with the white puffs and
the woman who aeked questions sheul.l
be berthmates in the sleeping car and
roommates in the hotel, to the mutual
disgust of both. The woman with the
white puffs would not answer question:-;;
the other would ask them. Together
they looked on great Niagara. She of

missing something familiar. At ler.sycn

"Where are the toothpicks?"
'"At the door, madam, on the buffef,
.as you go out,"' answered the wait"i\
The irrepressible one shook her head dis
approvingly and made comment thug,
" 'Taint like that to home."
A look of disgust spread slowly but
distinctly over the face of Mrs. White
puff. She remarked tartly to the air,
"No lady or gentleman uses a tooih
pick in the presence of others." Th<?
irrepressible one heard it. but it made
no impression. By that time she w.-is
wrestling in her mind with another mo
mentous matter. She looked at Lira.
Whitepuff with a puzzled expression and
"Is them teeth of yours false?"
Mrs. Whitepuff left the table and her
untasted dessert. Nothing daunted, not
in the least aware she had given offense,
the irrepressible one, observing the nic-?
ly frizzed locks of a new victim opposite,
made a motion to attract her attention
"Say. did you ever drop a pair of curl
ing tongs down your back?"
One of the incoming fashions greatly,
admired concerns the trimming of winter
felt hats with considerable brims. Little
folks and young girls both like the slits
in the brim. The slits are made with a
sharp penknife, apparently, and do not
come top near the edge. A pearl gray
felt hat is-fitted with slits, through which
wide, black velvet ribbon is carefully
passed. In and out goes the black velvet
ribbon, making a parti-colored border of
black and gray, very little and extremely
becoming. This is a good idea.

DRAMA NOT WANTED
ST. PAIL DRAMATIC CIRCLE WILL
GIVE HO PLAYS THIS
MEMBERS TO HAVE NEW HOME
Music and Dramatic Hall Will Be
Provided Witli Big Anditoritim
and Stage—Miss Sturgis'
It is probable- that the St. Paul Dra
mptio circle-will give no plays this win
ter. Woodland hall, which servud the
purposes of the circle admirably last
ye,".r, is burnt down and the members do
not feel like going to the expense- of fit
ting up a hall with a stage and other
appurtenance necessary for the produc
tion of a play. Moreover, Miss Mary
Sturgis, who is the director of the circle,
desires to devote all of her attention to
the matter ot the new music and dra
matic hall which will give the dramatic
circle a permanent home, and she and
the board of directors have decided that
it would be unwise, therefore, to give a
play durii g the, early winter, at leas:.
The Dramatic circle did much to enliven
the dullness of last winter's social sea
son, and not a few of its members
evinced decided talent, in their histrionic,
ventures. Society is congratulating itsell
that the circle does not intend to drop
out of existence permanently.
Should this matter of a new music
and dramatic hall be a success the build
ing will contain a hall that will seat
1,000. This hall will be on the lirst floor
and will be provided with a balcony.
Although all plans for the building are
necessarily embryonic. Miss Sturgis, who
has the interests of the Dramatic circle
at heart, is determined that the hall will
be large and that it will be provided with
everything necessary tor the successful
staging of a play.

A GIRL OF SPIRIT.
An eighteen-year-old college girl was
one of the contributors to the receipts of
the Kansas City live stock market a few
days ago. Miss Mabel Whiting, of Hard
ing Neb., was represented by a loa-l
containing nineteen lightweight steers of
her own feeding, which sold for $5.25 per
hundredweight, making her a profit of
more, than $?.00. She is the daughter of
L P. Whiting, a feeder and farmer of
Harding. It had been her ambition to
go to college independent of any help
from home. She had planned to teach
school last year, but. following her fa
ther's advice, phe bought a load ol
cattle and handled them herself. The
result of her experiment is that she ts
about twice as well off financially as If
she- had taught-school. Her father, wh >
was at the stockyards when his daugh
ter's cattle were sold, was delighted.
"It isn't that she had to do it." he
said "or really needed to earn the msn
ey, but it's the idea that she is capable
of earning her own living if it ever phojld
become necessary. The work was not
drudgery, and she spent no more than
art hour a day attending the cattle. She
had the rest "of the time to herself. In
the winter she wtnt to a neighboring
town three times a week and took lessons

OKEMOS AND HIS SON.
Under the willows of Willow Spring
Happens many a wonder.ul thing.
The sound that held the children mute.
One morning, came fi am an Indian flute.
It was a weird sound like the cry of a
wild animal, the note of a far-away bird
or the splash of fins in a lonely lake.
Rather, it was like all three of these.
The children were awakened by it and
lay quiet, frightened, yet pleased with the
strange, sad music.
The master of Willow Spring, who had
risen early to make the rounds of barns
and pasture, was now rousing the sleepy
i mistress of Willow Spring. He was call
ing, "Come, Chummy, let s have our cof
iee right away," when he heard the mys
"That is the flute of Johnny Okemos,"
he cried, and making a hasty toilet his
wife followed him to the back porch,
where sat a queer old Indian, gaz.ng up
into the willow branches and softly pip
ing en the rude flute.
He gravely took the master's hand, and
as the lady appeared he asked in surprise,
"You got wife?" He took off his bat
tered hat. Where he learned this bit of
politeness, I do not know.
His eyes were kind under the bushy
brows and the honesty of his face helped
to conceal its plainness. He was anything
but handsome, but commanded respect.
Upon the lapel of his coat hung a wilt
ed red peony. He explained the presence
of this decoration. "It was children's
day, I lind, yesterday. Those children
on" old Palmer's place say Indiaji must
we"ar ~^>ver. Great Spirit make 'cm to
wear, maybe. Okemos not know."
Johnny was now led to the sitting room
and shown the portraits of grandpa and
grandma, which hung there. The old
Indian drooped feebly as he gazed, and.
being given a chair, he looked long and
"Your moder, she fade like the snow in

"Long gone. I am alone in my wig
wam. I go to see Pokagon in Traverse.
But Pokagon old, too. He go soon."
Now, Pokagon was able to read and
write and was a poet, though he wrote
no rhymes. Pokagon met the tourists
in Northern Michigan, and his name and
| fame reached even to the Eastern cities.
Pokagon's "Red Mans Greeting,' 1 print
ed on birch bark, lay in a book case of
the room where Okemos sat.
The little girls hanging round the door
! reported how sorrowful the old Indian
! was, and planned with their mamma to
j make an exVa nice breakfast for him.
I They knew the story of Okemos, and
they understood how grandpa had cut
i down the trees, builded houses and
barns and roadways and had, in doing
these things, builded himself into the
lives of those about him, and into the
history of the state.
Now mamma had seen Indians eat,
but she did not realize Johnny's appe
tite. Coffee, milk, toast, eggs and
I doughnuts fairly melted away, and still
i the old man ate on. Just before the
| larder was empty he was satisfied.
He was eighty years old, he said, but
intended to come back and trap about
the old mill pond the next fall.
The girls put a fresh rose in place
of the peony, and after a few bars of
wild music the old man went his way.
He never came again, and his death
was reported. I do not think he left a
Chief Okemos, for whom Is named a
town not far from Lansing, was an In

shores of the mill pond and its feeding
While grandpa toiled in the mill mak

that they did no labor.
So they cooked down the sap in a
cauldron" kettle. it through
blankets none too clean, ate their sugar
with hominy and game, and stole ev
erything they could lay hands on.
Grandma always found that his flock
of fowls was smaller whenever the chief
had chicken for dinner, yet he was al
ways kind to Okemos. for under the dark
skii: he knew a good heart was beating
and the knowledge that is power looked
out of the chief's keen eyes.
So when the old man brought Johnny,

money, for he knew Okemos could not be

STORY OF THE BEAVERS.
Many years ago there lived in this
country a number of beavers who were
just liKe tho.ie of the present day, ex
cept that their tails were long and thin,
like those of muskrats. instead of being
large and flat as they are now. And the
reason that the tails of the beaver folk
became so changed in shape i.s this:
Even in those early da., s the beavers
lived in fine houses whien they built in
ponds and streams, and in which they
laid by a groat store of food, to last
tnem through the winter, when ice should
chain up the water courses and keep the
animals prisoners in their own homes.
Of course, they took good care to be
snugly at home before the cold weather
arrived, but once (.and you shall hear
how nearly they came to losing their
lives through their carelessness) a party
of incautious young beavers went too
far in search of" some particularly desira
ble logs, and, to their dismay, found on
returning to the stream which held their
homes that its surface was covered with
a thick coating of ice.
They had been so hard at work over
the logs that they had tailed to notice the
increasing cold, but now the unexpected
sight of the ice sent a chill to their very
hearts. Still they did not intend to sit
still and freeze, but set about their re
turn as speedily as possible, hoping that
some charitable relative had remembered
their absence and kept a passage open by
which they might return to ffieir fine
warm houses. But, alas! when they
reached the village of their people, the
ice was solid as a rock and only the tops
of the domelike houses rose above the
glassy surface. The entrances were all
far below near the bottom of the stream,
and nowhere did they find an opening by
which they might enter. The poor beav
ers were in despair; the cold was stead
ily increasing and chilling them to the
very marrow of their banes and they felt
that whatever they did was to be done
quickly, or else they would die there in
the bitter atmosphere, with!n~a few feet
of their relatives and friends, who were
doubtless at that very moment busily
eating or taking long, cosy winter naps
in v tljesr warm, comfortable houses.
The unfortunate exiles made frantic
efforts to dig through the ice, but they
found that it only wore out their toe
nails and made their feet dredfully sore,
all to no purpose. Then they tried to
dig their way through the top of one of
the houses, but the frost had rendered
the mud-plastered sticks of which it
was built as hard as stone; so they
were obliged to abandon that idea also.
They jumped up and down and banged
with their tails on the tops of several of
the houses, hoping to attract the atten
tion of some of the inhabitants, who
might in some way aid then in effect
ing an entrance, but all their efforts
seemed fruitless, and they were just
about to resign themselves to their fate
and lie down on the ice to die when
the top of the partly ruined house, on
which they had bee.n jumping as a last
resort, caved in with several of them.
You may be sure that it did not take
the freezing animals long to scramble
through the opening, and make their
way by various underway passages to
their several homes, where, after a
hearty meal they at once settled down
to sleep without disturbing any of their
friends, who were one and all found
wrapped in deep slumber.
But the next spring, when the ice melt
ed and the village awoke, the beavers
who had so narrowly escaped death told
the others all that had befallen them.
And then the chief of the beavers,- an
animal so old that his whiskers were
gray with age. Issued a proclamation in
which he ordered all of his people to fas
ten wooden paddles to their tiles, so
that in case of a similar occurrence they
would be able to make enough noise to
be heard by those below, who could eas
ily break through the roof from within.
And the beavers, obeying this order as
soon found that these paddles were of the
greatest assistance in building and plas
tering their houses; and gradually,
through much exercise in using the
I wooden instruments, the shapes of their

Mrs. Whitehead Sparrow and Mrs. Top

"It is certainly getting to be colder.
And I am afraid of the snow and the
severe weather, which I hear always
comes in the season called winter.''
"How did you hear anything about
it?" asked Mrs. Topknot, curiously.
"Oh, I heard all about it from the
parrot who hung in the cherry tree all
summer." Mrs. Whitehead replied. "He
said it was cold enough to freeze your
feathers, but then, of course, that may
depend upon the color of them. His
were gaudy, I remember."
Mr. and Mrs. Whitehead looked .it
many spots which they thought mi^ht
do for a winter home, a shelter from
the cold, which they feared. The leaves
were turning red, and dropping in dozens
from the trees. There were sheltered
places, here and there, under a limb, or

would not be of much protection when
