RUSSELL SAGE FORGETFUL.
Leaves I'unm at Home and Is Asked
to Fay Fare.
Russell Sage, being a director and largo
(stockholder of the Manhattan Railway
company, rides on a pass. Mr. Sage, how
ever, has grown neglectful of late, and

that was forcibly impressed upon him on
Thursday morning last.
Going up the steps of the station at
Forty-second street and Sixth avenue, ho

ticket taker without depositing any
Ticket in the box. He had Tlone so
hundreds of times before—and always
•without difficulty. But it happened that
on this morning there was a new man
at the box. When, therefore, Mr. Sage
■ ly passed by, the new man imme
diately got busy.
"Tickets!" he cried. "Tickets'."
Mr. Sage paid no attention.
"Hi, there," cried the ticket man, "you
forgot your ticket." And then, seeing that
Mr. Sago apparently paid no attention,
'"Hi, th.>re, I mean you," and he ran up
to Mr. Sage.
The veteran "Wall street financier was

God bless me—"
But just then the colored attendant put

SHOWERS OF ALL KINDS

TROUBLING SOCIETY CIRCLES
Linen, Kitchen, Stocking, Apron,
Casliion and Bric-a-Brac Deletes
' of Daily Occurrence—Baby Shower
Is the Crowning Affliction Which'
Has Sprang Into Popularity.
Showers have ceased to become a fad;
they are a mania. Reference is not made
to Observer. Lyons' doubtless well meant
intentions during the past two months,
but to society's determined efforts to see
that prospective brides are launched on
the matrimonial sea with every necessity
and every luxury from a mop stick and
an ice cream freezer to a party shawl.
"I've had seven," said a prospective
bride, the other day, with every ap
pearance of satisfaction. "Mabel gave i
me a linen shower, Jessie gave a kitchen
shower, Mary gave a handkerchief
shower, Polly gave a stocking shower;
auntie gave an apron shower, Bessie gave
a cushion shower, and Jennie gave a
bric-a-brac shower. But goodness me,"
and the bride sighed deeply, "I hope all
those girls don't get married in the same
If the showers stopped with brides no
exception could be taken. But they
have reached babies. A baby shower
is the latest phase of the development of
the mania. The baby, like the bride, is
generally prospective. The mother is
supposed at one of those show
ers to receive enough clothes to last the
infant for the first year of its life. But
sometimes there are awkward miscallcii-
lations. It is an undeniable fact that
some things are easier to make than oth
ers, so occasionally there is a discourag
ing sameness about the articles produced
at a baby shower. For instance, one
chubby infant ushered into the world not
many moons ago was confronted by
seven pale blue kimonas, that seven
well meaning but mistaken friends of its
mother had provided. A bride is able
generally to make some disposition of
duplicated articles. A baby, however,
is without this resource. Perhaps, in
the near future, the humane society will
?eo fit to number the baby showers among
those acts of cruelty toward children
which the society tries vainly to sup

there are two ways of remedying the
evil. One is by cooking tips and stalks

daintily prepared and refreshing dishes.
Indeed, it seems much the fashion now
for tables to be decorated almost exclu

texture, and which are so grouped as to

about in imitation of enclosed pools, and

I am not a writer. If I were 1 wouTd
write a story that would create a sen

myself. Speaking of confidence I remem
ber when I was a struggling student in
Chicago I -was living on so small a mar
gin that frequently I was unable to get
anything to eat, but I was so full of
confidence that I never really felt hun
gry. My confidence once persuaded ma
that I could write, but after taking a
course in journalism I crowded waste
baskets with manuscripts without- get

enough money to pay back the sum I
had borrowed from a friend for tuition
while learning to write.

a hierog]yphist. A chemist is one who
can analyze chemicals or compounds. I
am both and I natter myself—rather my
confidence flatters me into believing my
self a good embodiment of the principles
Well, my inkling of journalism was
sufficient to suggest to me the idea that
although I could not pick up my pen
and dip a story out of my ink bottle,
there was one in there, and a good one,
too, that a suggestive head could take
out and .spread all over sheets and sheets
of paper. I wanted that story for a
prize story contest, but my head would
not draw it out through the nudium ot
a pen. Accordingly I brought my
knowledge of chemistry into play. I re
duced that bottle of ink to sulphate of
copper, gum accaeia, copperas, extract of
logwood and H2O, every ingredient of
which bore traces of a foreign substance
that I concluded was the story I was
after. Proceeding I eliminated the H2O
by evaporation, hoping that the story
would not also evaporate, reduced the
remaining ingredients to a fine powder,
spread the powder on a plate of glass,
suspended the glass in a glass conica'
retort by means of a piece of mandorr-i
string, exhausted the air, set the thing
in front of me on my desk and while I
watched it, allowed my thoughts to dwell
on a little love affair of former days.
I do not believe in spirits, but the
powder on that plate actually got up
arid danced all over the plate for about
ten minutes, finally settling down in
groups so arranged as to present many
hieroglyphic shapes. I exhausted my

a happy thought struck me. I made a

sounded as though the heroine was whis

"Yes, I remember our first meeting.
It was on the front steps on July even
ing. Mr. Hogan introduced us. Then
Jack asked me to go to church witii
him. I had just recovered from a se

blocks. He called a carriage, and, oh,
how tenderly he assisted me in and out
and bade me lean on him in church. I

in ChicAgo and does he ever walk by
that boarding house and think of Au

was to me the Sear following. How he
bought me books, candy, fruit, took mo
to the theater,- banquets, and away out
Into the country on pleasant drives.
Dear old fellow. The park—how it used
to delight him to take just me, board
an electric car and spend an hour in the
park. I remember once writing on one
of his business cards. "Then why do I
lcve you?" It was only the title of a
scng, but how happy it made him. He
lcved me, too.
"The sadness mingles with the sun
shine. I wore a diamond ring on my
engagement finger and received letters
that mystified dear Jack. He loved me
and could not bring himself to believe
that I was engaged to another. Ho
never said a word about it, but his
eyes were eloquent. How they reflect
ed his great, big, generous heart. One
day Willis came and I had to cancel
my engagements with Jack. Can I
ever forget how sad he looked when he
packed his grip and took a premature
vacation. I missed him while he was
gone more than I can tell. Willis went
away, Jack came back and we attended
the wedding of a friend. It was late
when we returned. Jack was silent aa
