ICe put back the pistol, and from

Miss Thyllis Langborne. the beauti
ful young sister of Mrs. Charles Dana
Gibson, the artist's wife, will be ona
of uutuuiu's brides. Her engagement
to Mr. Reginald Brooks of New York
bas been announced, and the wedding
is set for November.
Miss Langhorne, who Is a daugh
ter of C. D. langhorne of Mirador,
Albemarle county, Va., has easily held
precedence as 'the loveliest of the Old
Dominion's belles. Her sisters, who.
besides Mrs. Gibson, are Mrs. Robert

markable for their beauty.
Women la Xew Soatb. Wales.
"The legislative assembly of New
South Wales, it is announced, bas
passed the third reading of the wom
en's franchise bill," says the London
Daily News. "In this matter Australia
follows in the footsteps of New Zea
land and shows once more the strong
and spirited instinct for progress and
experiment, wise or unwise, which re
sides in our empire when it is saga
ciously let alone. Evidently we. do not
believe In 'equal rights everywhere
except in the country where we make
war for them. So far as any deduc
tions can be drawn from the case of
New Zealand, it is chiefly remarkable
for the fact that the reform has enter
ed quietly and harmlessly into the na
tional life, doing neither the lurid evil
that was prophesied by its opponents
nor the seraphic good that was proph
esied by its prophets. The notion
that women, if they had a vote, would
leave behind ruined mansions and
starving babies in order to haunt the
lulling stations day and night in the
hope of voting continuously in lieu of
all other occupations displayed very
little knowledge of the feminine tem
perament. It is "questionable whether
any number of seats in parliament
would soon cure women of their con
tempt for politics. But, on the other
baud, almost equal harm has been
doue to the cause by those idealists of
women's suffrage who have represent
ed that the moment women were
emancipated evil itself would wither
off the. earth and laws would be passed
against tobacco and clubhouses."
When to Cat the Hair.
"The hair should never be cut at all.
It makes it bleed and injures and hard
ens it. It should be singed always."
"At every new moonV"
"The moon, may control the tide, but
not the hair. No; every three months
is often enough.
"The hair should be light and free on
the bead. It should have air and not
lc plastered dow n Hat. To 'shullle' it is
food for it. for the hair can rest that
way. The hair should always be brush
ed a little before it is combed out, for
combing hair breaks and bruises the
roots more than does anything else."
"And at uightV"
"Ah, at night." says madam "at
night the hair thould Ihj put in very
loose braids or even allowed to hong
over the pillow. But never should it be
left dressed and in colls to the bead.
Then It will have no air, no freedom,
and it will be like a plant kept always
la the dark."
"Can any woman have lovely halrV"
"Yes, any woman can have beautiful
hair. But glorious bair is a gift from
God, Just like any other point of mar
An Odd Xen Game.
In European fashionable circles a
new game will toon become popular, if
one may Judge by the enthusiasm that
greeted it when played a few days
ago for the first time at' a large festi
val given by a wealthy landed pro
prietor in England.
It is known as "the necktie race."
The players are horsemen, and, as in
an ordinary race, each strives to le
first at a distant goal. Midway be
tween the starting point and goal, bow
ever, are several ladies, and each
horseman as be reaches them Is bound
to dismount, band the reins to a groom,
have bis necktie tied by one of the la
dies and then mount again and race
for the goaL Before the race begins
each horseman selects the lady whom
be desires to favor him In this manner.

Missouri clubs are much' occupied
with plans for the memorial which the
clubwomen of the "Louisiana Pur

most favored is that the memorial take

Marshall Monday club, the largest club
in the state outside of Kansas City and
St. Louis. The plan was presented at
the convention of federated clubs re

BIG PRICES FOR ANIMALS.

to America and of keeping it alive aft

Next to the giraffe iu the aristocracy

hippopotamus, worth from $1,000 to

these animals, he could get rich, but
the big mammals rarely .breed in cap
tivity. About the only place In America
where hippopotami have been known
to raise their young is in the menag

A chimpanzee of size Is worth $3,000,
and when one reaches the intelligence
of the late Mr. Crowley, Chico or Jo
hanna he is beyond a fixed price. The
monkey kind are most uncertain prop
erty. The animal man says they are
certain to die. But the ordinary ones
can be bought very- cheaply.
One cau buy a nice young baby ele
phant for $1,000 at times, but a ready
good animal is worth from $1.S00 to
$",000. An elephant does not command
the maximum price because of the
beauty of his countenance, the ele
gance of his figure, his intellectual en
dowments or his size, but because of
a sweet, sunny disposition. A mean
elephant is about the most evil of liv
ing things. Sooner or later he has to
be killed, usually after he has slain
two or three keepers and done more
damage than he is worth. Of two ani
mals of equally good disposition the
larger and finer commands the higher
price, of course, but the most magnifi
