One Man's Method of Economy.
"So you think it funny that I carry a
cane down town with me every day when
I ro to business, do you?" said a young
lawyer the other day to a friend who had
made jinni verse criticism on the subject,
claimingthat clients might be prejudiced
against a lawyer who habitually carried a
cane, for fear that he might not lie of a
sufficiently serious or studious turn of
mind, as there was something about a stick
that indicated the stripling or the dude.
"Some men may carry a cane because
they think it is the proper thing," contin
ued the young student of Blackstone, "but
I am influenced in the practice purely by
motives of economy. I graduated from
college five years ago, and I haven't car
ried a stick since my freshman year. Still,
as I am not such a fool as not to know
enough to get out of the rain, I have al
ways carried an umbrella in bad weather.
"As a matter of fact I found 1 was losing
about twelve umbrellas a year simply be
cause not carrying a cane. I never thought
of my umbrella unless it was actually
raining when I got outside quick enough
to return in time to get my umbrella be
fore some one else grabbed it. Oue day I
loj-t my own umbrella and my wife's as
well. They cost $!5 between, them. Since
then I have carried a cane on pleasant days
and 1 never lose an umbrella. It's a great -
economy.' New lork Herald.
Knonn tiy Tlieir Hats.
A man who knocks about a jrreat deal,
and is a close observer, said: There is a
man in this town who makes a living out
of the manufacture of hat linings. He
has stamps of all the leading hat houses in
this city and Kew York and Paris. You
know, m:ij le, that a man is often known
by the hat he wears. There are a few hat
men whose names take the lead, and the
young men who want to appear as if they
were near the head of the procession get
the linings of these well known hat manu
facturers from the man of whom I just
toij you, and he puts them in cheap hats.
The customer turns up his hat then when
ever he takes it off, ami shows the stamp
of a well known house, and thus, in some
circles, ho establishes himself without the
assistance of any letters. The hat lining
does it. Chicago Tribune.
Amy Young Mr. Dolley has proposed
Mattel Of course you accepted him?
Amy Well, no. I had expected to, but
in his proposal he used an irreconcilable
figure of speech, and I thought I could not
rik my life's happiness with him. lie
said. "Amy, will you walk with me down
the stream of life?" If he had even said
wade down the stream of life I could have
accepted him; but the idea of walking in
the water! Harper's Bazar.
Anastasius, the chief of the famous
Greek brigands, whose cheerful habit it is
to kidnap harmless travelers and keep
them oa short commons till a ransom is
paid, is described as a type of perfect
Greek beauty, a very cultivated man, who
speaks four languages and has the man
ner; of courts.
There is no danger of a cold resulting
in pneumonia when Chamberlain's Cough
remedv is used as directed "for a severe
cold." It effectually counteracts and
arrests any tendency of a cold to .resuK
in pneumonia. This fact was fully prov
en in thousands of cases daring the epi
demic of influenza last winter. For sale
