SHE HAS HER LESSON.
DON'T MAKtt FRIKNUM TOO
How a at. Paul Ijidy was) Deceiv
ed by a Conftdeuce Man on
Board an Oceau ateantilp
From the N. V. Hun.
A well known St. Pnul woman, who
not lonn ngomnrtcn "little journey in the
world," came hack with some worldly
wisdom ns to the indiscriminate making
of friends tluit she hnd never bud before.
It came about in this way.
Her "little journey" wns across the
water, nnd while on the homeward
bound ship she found herself one tiny en
gaging in the most animated and phas
ing cunvcmition with a man who sat
near her chair on the deck. Mc wns evi
dently n jierson of culture, and with n
wonderful fund of knowledge at his com
nitnd. The two soon lieeumc warm
IVicnds, und spent long hours ench day in
xchanging opinions upon all kinds of
iniDcrsonnl tonics. Just before the steam
ship reached New York, it transpired
Hint the man hnd known nil along who
the lady was and where her home was.
When she asked him in surprise how he
could have known her, lie answered
briefly, "I nnt n St. Pnul man myself.
This gave the kindly little woman an op
portunity. "Then my husbnnd nnd 1
will be glnd to see you any time in our
home," she said cordially.
' Pardon mc, mndnmc," he nnswered
Irankly, "we hnvc la-en friends on hoard
the steamship. Hut when wc return to
St. Paul neitiier you nor your luishnnd
would receive me in your home, nnd you
would be fully justified. 1 beg you will
not nsk the reuson."
And she did not. But when a few hours
later her husband met her on the pier nnd
she pointed her lute friend out to him
with the whisiered story he answered
slowly: "Well, he has behaved like ngen
tlci.inn, nnd 1 won't thrnnh him. Hut he
was quite right in what he snid. He is
one of the best known confidence men in
the United States."
John I- aulllvan an an Actor.
Prom the New York Run.
The first hilarity wns caused by his
looking like the rockiest Little Lord
I'aiintlcrov that had ever crown into an
enormous slugger, with hair cropiord
close to n wide-enred head, untl hands so
hit: that it was n wonder how the sleeves
ol his eont hnd got onto his arms. The
coat was u short velvet one, and the
very wide collar of an oiicn-nccked shirt
was turned over it, while the stalwart
lens were in velvet imnties nnd knee
stockings. Mr. Sullivan wns an Irish
blacksmith in the piny, anil Ins costume
wus doubtless the outcome of nn at
tempt to render him picturesque.
His first dramatic duty was to help
bring in a fragile lady, who Was fmnt
from n carriage accident. She seemed to
feci lietter and anler ns soon as she was
out of his arms, while he, with nothing
to hang on to, slouched a few steps
across the stnge, with the true Howery
lurch such ns the comedians arc so fond
of mimicking and then stood stock still,
with n fixed, meamnuless lace suggesting
iinresis, nnd which may hnvc come of

remark to nn in. inter ol mc ncroinc;
"By heaven! Til choke you."
The uper half of the audience yelled

The Mearch for I'relty Wives.
Prom the Home Journal.
I'.irls to be successful to-day must have
something more than pretty features.
I he men who nrc worth marrying ore
lookirg for something else than pretty
faces, coy manners or fetching gowns.
They are recognizing full well thnt wi
mcii'jtre urourcssiiig at n pnee which will
quicken, rather than slacken. They re
alize tniti mc wonuin oi to-morrow win
be briuhtcr in mind than her predecessor
of to-day. Hence, they arc looking for
wives who will lie tnc equal ol inatoi ncr
neighbor. Itcuuty is being considered an
adjunct to common sense. "I want a
wile who Itnows something, wiiois worm
having for what she knows; not one of
these social butterflies," said one of the
grcntcst "catches" of the Inst New York
season to me at tne winter s close. Ana
he expressed the sentiments of thousands
of the young men of to-day. The scent
for pretty wives is over, and the lookout
for liright young women has begun. And
the girl who to-day trains her mind to
knowledge will be the woman of to-morrow.
They Come from the aoulh.

The best clnss of factory girls in the

was asked a new comer In a woolen mill
"And your christian mime ?"
"Thnt is an Imiiertincnt iiuiuiry. 1 wish

And so she is. So nrc nil these industri

About one hundred miles west of Ashc
ville. on the Murnhv brunch of the Wes
tern North Cnrolina railroad, on the
western slope of the Nuntihnln mountain,
theie lies nestled between lofty ranges,
one of the most lovely valleys in Western
North Carolina. Vnlley river, a stream
not quite so large us the. Swnnnanon,
led by a Hundred cicar, coia mountain
rivulets, winds its crystal way through
this lovely vale. The iron horse has at
last waked the slumberiuu echoes of cen
turies, daily pealing the death knell of
the Kip van winKie sicep tuui nns
brooded for all time over this enchanting
spot, and waking to life and activity the
poicnuui energy ui iva pemm.

Inst come within the great world's rench
and grasp. Aside from thcalmost bound
less wealth of forest that clothes their
hill and mountain sides, waiting the pa
thetic but useful devastation of the lum
lierman's axe and saw, nnd a soil and
climate inviting the utilization ot thous
ands, Nature has been lavish, under
ground as well, this whole valley being
underlaid with itnmensedepositsof many
colored marbles, to say nothing of the
extensive beds ol iron ore that nave Keen
lamous for ninny years.
The present terminus of the W. N. C.
railroad, is at Andrews' station, situated
in the mitlst of this charming and fertile
valley. Knterprising men have here laid
ofl'a town site into lots of covenent size.
with broad streets, and will shortly offer
fhem to them to the public. The date ol
the sale has been fixed fur September 30.
It is probable that arrangements will be
mnclc lor halt rates on the railroad, und
all should tukc advantage of the oppor
tunity offered. The scenery from Ashc
ville to Andrews is grand nnd pictur
esque in the extreme. In the transit three
great mountnin divitles are surmounted,
the Pisgah or Newfound range dividing
the wutcrs of French Broad from the
Pigeon ; the great Balsam, dividing the
wnters of Pigeon from those of the tii
per Tennessee; nntl Instly the famous
Nnntnhala rnmic. which separates the
Tennessee wnters from the HiuwusHcc, of
which Valley river is n tributary. Many
of our rentiers nrc familiar with the rond
ns far as Balsam gap, where Mrs. Bright
regales the hungry traveller in right
royal style, hut few have ticnctrntcd the
romantic wilds of the Nnntnhnln.
Invinc the deep valley of the Tennes
see above its wonderful plunge through
the grent Smoky Mountains, the iron
way ascends the canon ot tnc isnntalinln
river, a bold mountnin stream, elenr as
crystal, and walled in by mountains so
high anil so very steep thnt the tourist
is struck with wonder thnt their precipi
tous sides nrc clad to the very top with
lofty deciduous forests. After some miles
