Tou can a 1 ways trust the American
woman to take care of herself. The
friends of a girl who lives in Eight

an adventure which befell ber one aft

the corner of F and Eleventh streets

Tnllovr Candle a. Medicine.
In France the peasantry still stick to
medicines calculated to turn the aver
age doctor's hair gray with horror.
Wine is an Ingredient of every pre
scription. In fever cases it Is always
the predominant one. The French
peasant's faith In fermented grape
Juice Is truly beautiful.
If his children are stricken with the
measles, be gives them wine wel?
sweetened with honey and highly spic

administers a quart of red wine and a
melted tallow candle mixed. For scar
let or brain fever he gives eggs, white
wine and soot well beaten together.
Not all their superstitions are curi
ous. Some are pathetic. A mother, for
Instance, often buries her dead child
witli its favorite toy or a lock of her
own hair In the coffin, "that It may not
feel quite alone."

waves him back imperiously.
'Not today T she cries.
'Why not? asks the landlord, with
'Because," the woman replied, "no
pitiless storm of rain mingled with Icy
sleet rages without!"
The landlord grinds bis teeth In im
potent rage. He may trample under
foot the promptings of bis better na
ture, but not the conventionalities es
tablished by long usage. Detroit Journal.
"Great idea, that of Mike's," said the
enthusiastic heeler of the better sort.
He isn't satisfied with shaking hands
with his constituents in the ordinary

Ain't that rather overdoing it?" said
the cautious person.

Mike knows his business. As long as
