The Terrapin Knew Him.
When tbe late Major Moses P. Handy
lived in Washington, he was frequently
attending dinners at Chamberlin's. At
every dinner at all out of the ordinary
it was Chamberlin's habit to pass
around the table alive tbe terrapin that
(it was assumed) the guests were to eat
One night, as Major Handy told the
story, wben the live terrapin were
brought in, as usual, he noticed, as he
thought, one of tbe terrapins wagging
bis head at him. A the next banquet
tbe same thing happened again, and at
tbe next one of tbe terrapin detached
himself from the rest and, crawling
cross the table to tbe major's plate,
reee on bis hind legs, and, resting bis
fore legs against a convenient torn bier,
he bowed tbree times, solemnly; but
courteously, to tbe astonished and awe
struck guest. .
Upon investigation it was discovered
that tbe terrapin had seen tbe major so
frequently at Chamberlin's festal board
that be recognized him as an old friend
and politely addressed him as such. Mr.
Chainberlin is said to have resented this
BtorT as a reflection on the freshness of '.

To the coffee drinker. Coffee
ing is a habit that is universally in
dulged in and almost as universally
injurious. Have you tried Grain-O?
It is almost like coffee, but tbe effects
are just the opposite. Coffee upsets
the stomach, ruins the digestion, af
fects the heart and disturbs the whale
nervous system. Grain-O tones tip
the stomach, aids digestion and
strengthens the nerves. There is
nothing but nourishment in Grain-O.

BIT OF HUMAN NATURE.
Hasty Conclusion Abont a Woman That
Was Chanced Later.
Two little girls occupied seats to
cether cn an elevated train the other
night. Both wero scantily dressed, hol
low eyed and hungry looking. They were
nnmistakably of that class known as
"cashaiirls" employed in tho down
town department 6tores, for each ad
dressed the other by a number in lieu of
Directly opposite them sat a fashion
ably dressed woman who was accom
panied by a well groomed male escort.
Upon their entrance tne conversation of
the little cms stopped abruptly and
there was something pitiful in the ear
nestness with which both watched every
move of tbe 'woman so stunningly
gowned. Two pairs of abnormally keen
though tired eyes thoroughly investi
gated every bit of finery iu her apparel
from the highest plume of her hat to
tbe soft, natty shoes which incased her
"Say, TO," whispered the smaller of
the two girls, leaning toward her com
Dan ion. "she's a real lady, she is. You
can tell by hr-r make up. Ain't that
beaut of a bat, though? And look at
that diamond breastpin 1 Whew ! I
bet that hat cost all of"
"Sh!" interrupted 76 in an under
tone. "She'll hear yon." There was
spell of silence as both girls leaned back
with their heads resting against the
top of the seat. They were enjoying the
dazzling picture before them.
After glancing over a section of
newspaper wbicu the man cad given
her tho womau folded it np and banded
it back to him.
"Did you get the tickets?" she asked
" Yes, " was the answer in an iudiffer
"Let me see them."
He extracted a small envelopo from
bis vest pocket and handed it to her.
Bv the way." he remarked, "we will
have to go tonight. I couldn't get good
seats for tomorrow, and rather than
miss it I took these."
"Tonight?" she repeated in a tone of
vexation. "You know well enough that
we can't go tonight. We have another
"Which we can conveniently can
cel, " he interpolated.
"Indeed we will hot, she retorted,
with a determined stamp of her foot
A protracted argument followed
which was not too low for the cashgirla
to learn the drift.
"You can go to Mrs. Brown's alone,"
finally exclaimed the man, "and I will
take your mother to tbe theater! We
can call ior you on our way nome n
you insist on going."
"You'll not go to the theater with
anybody. You must and will go to
Mrs. Brown's with me." Thus assert
ing herself, she deliberately tore the en
velope containing the tickets in minute
parts and threw them on tbe floor.
Tbey left tho train at the next sta
tion, be with a disgusted look on his
face and she with head erect and a de
fiant glare in her bright eyes.
Scarcely bad tbe rustle of her gar
ments ceased to be heard wben 76 sage'
ly observed: "You're all off, 27. She
ain't a real lady. It's only her fine dnds
what makes you think so. She's only
an imitation, and no clerk would take
her to a window if she wanted to mal4
