hqually displeasing was the jilting of
Princess Marguerite of Chartres by the
Duke of Orleans. Tended with the most
loving and devoted solicitude by his fair
fiancee during his incarceration at Clair
vaux (she h;d established herself with her
mother in a villi at the very prison gates,
in order to be near him), he threw himself
into such a vortex of dis-sipntion on his re
lease that his uncleand prospective father-in-law
was eompelled to remonstrate witr
him. The duke took this uiniss, declared
that he had no intention of modifying his
questionable mode of existence and wound
up by announcing that he had altered his
mind with regard to Princess Marguerite
and would under no circumstances marry
her. rthe has since become the wife of tlie
gallant yuuii Duke of Magenta, eldest son
und heir of Marshal MaeMuhou.

Mistook Each Other For Turkeys.

rections. After going some distance Clark
yelped, imitating a turkey, thinlaag if
there were uny turkeys near by they would
answer hiiu. Mr. ,haw heard the noise,
and thinking ho had found a drove of tur
keys la.-g.-in to yelp also. Kach of the men,
tailoring under the impression that the
noise they heard was made by turkeys,
kept crawlingonjiis knees in the direction
of the yelping. Finally Clark saw a small
object which ho thought was the turkey,
but instead was his companion's head.
Clark fired. The whole load of 50 No. V
turkey shot entered Mr. Shaw's head and
licck. Clark ran to p-t his game, and
when he realized what ho had done ho was
overcome with grief. Clark assisted the
woutnled man on his horse and took him
to a house near by and got a man to carry

It will doubtless be astonishing to

Strange as the assertion may seem, it
is bo true and hits assumed such propor
tions that in tlie majority of the stores
there is a Ixxik kept iu the private office
of the firm in which are written the
names of tlie women who are known to
be thus ardietecU.and when they are
caught in the act a bill for the goods
stolen is scut to the husband, father or
the person who has niado himself re
sponsible for tlie things taken. It was
found necessary to do this after two or
three arrests had been niado and the
culprit fouud, upon investigation, to be
long to some well known family. It was
not only necessary for tho protection of
the merchants against loss by the theft,
but it was also mo imperative from
the fact that these exposures endangered
Lis business. After such an arrest and
the consequent publicity the family of
tiio accused were very loath to trade, at
that particular store, and the with
drawal of such patronago meant loss of
thousands of dollars to tho proprietor.
This explanation was given me by the
superintendent of one of tho largest de
partment stores where, af t-r a thorough
cauvassing of the pi ineipal retail stores
in the city, I found that it was no mere
gossip as to tho existence of this book,
and the fact that liino out of ten em

The Pnblic Servica In China.
Ex-Secretary John V. Foster, who
was tho confidential adviser of the em
peror of China in the peace negotiations
with Japan, contributes a paper on
"The Viceroy Li Hung Chang" to Tho
Century. Mr. Foster says of the vice
roy: Ho does not regard the competitive
educational system of admission to the
public service us a perfect method, and
mote than once he has recommended to
his emperor material modifications in
tho existing system. But it must be
confessed that it has stood tho test of
centuries with much boni-lit to China,
and its practical operation has demon
strated that it possesses two merits iif
inestimable value to any nation. F'irst,
it brings all tho offices of the empire
within tho reach cf the lowest subject,
find, secondly, it diminishes the incen
tives to ami opportunities of corruption
and favoritism in securing entrance
into official life. But iu Chiua the com

mission. Beyond that step promotion
must come though other methods. Li
Hung Chang secured tho right of ad
mission to oilice through his assiduous
application to study, aud every succeeel

bette-r, but if the portrait be given with
frankness and sincerity, if the model lie
rendered with kuowledgo and truth, the
result will bo a picture- a work of art
whether the painter so designs it or
not. Holbein and Velasquez told the
exact truth about their sitters, at-1 their
simpler portraits are today their la-tter
pictures, Lawrence and his followers in
devoting themselves to "stnimiirg" ef
fects not only compromised the likeness,
but made the picture bizarre by em
phasis in the wrong place. The tale has
been more than twice told in the history
of art. A simple truth is always better
than an ornate falsehood. Scribuer's.

Medical Discovery is the best of all knowa
remedies for this disorder. It corrects dis
ordered digestion, invigorates the liver,
regulates the bowels, makes the blood pare,
and the nerves strong. It is the great blood

muscles firm and springy. It anothe and
invigorates the nerves. It tones up body
and brain. It enres ninety-eight per cent,
of all crises of consumption.
