Mrs. Wiley was one of tbe people who
enjoy, more than finylhiux else, managing
other people's affairs. She was such a
powerio her family and among her friends
that she bad at last come to believe that
very few things were done without her ad
vice and consent, either in her own home
As she grew older her way of mention
ing the control she exercised over every
body within her reach became more and
more decided, and was now often the oc
casion of no little amusement.
Her husband, a very old gentleman some
ten years her senior and quite feeble, had
frequent attacks of sneezing, which did
not seem to presage any cold or to give
him the least discomfort. Often be sneezed
sixteen times in succession as he sat in his
big armchair reading the paper labori
ously. "Your husband's quite a hand to sneeze,
Mis' Wiley, ain't he" said a little seam
stress wbo was sewing for the family one
day when the old gentleman had had sev
eral of his longer attacks..
"Yes, he is," admitted Mrs. Wiley, "and
for a long time I used to reason with him
about it, anil had him pretty well broke of
tbe notion. But now he's consid'rable old
and he ain't got much to occupy him, and
sneezin kind of takes up his time; and so,
if he enjoys it, I just let it go, for when
all's said anil done, it's a harmless kind of
habit." Youth's Companion.

Decoration! In a Naval Officer' Room.
The care and effort expended by naval
officers in leatitifying their tiny rooms are
well known. Officers' qnarters on dress
parade are as good as a woman's exchange
in the display of dainty fancy work and all
feorts of feminine fripperies in the way of
bedroom adornment, with everything trim
and taut in true nautical fashion. This
enforced economy of spare crops on t amus
ingly sometimes, as for instance in the case
of the officer who went shopping the other
day for one pillow sham nod was really
not much comforted when tbe saleswoman
told him it would cost no more to take
tvr fnr it lisrnlaiiu.l in V. - ...I
mere II always be one to stow away."-
AH this finery of lare pincushions, pil
lowsuams, et al., is indulged in only in
port. For sea duty plain serviceable be
longings of stout materials are substi
tuted. If the cruise is to be to Europe, the
pretty things are carefully "lockered" and
tarried along for production at a Mediter
ranean port, but if the ship's nose is point
ed Samoaward or down the wrong side of
South America, or in any such hopeless,
inappreciative direction, the "fixings" are
left ashore in the care of wife, sister or
tweetbeart. Her Point of View tn Xew
