Old Kentucky Homes.
Rather i o tbe country than to the towns
in Kentucky must one look for the local
history of the home life. 1 here tirst was
implanted under English and Virginia in
fluences tie antique style of country seat;
there flourished for a time those gracious
manners t' tat tvere the high born endow
ment of the oMen school; there in piquant
contrast were developed side by side the
democratic and aristocratic spirits, work
ing severally toward equality and caste;
there wa9 "stablisheil the state reputation
for eft asivo private hospitalities, and there
still are ruliarly cherished the fading
traditions of more festive boards and kind
lier heartl stones. If the feeling of the
whole people could be interpret ed by a sin
gle saying, it would perhaps be this that
whether in town or country nu if in the
country, net remotely here or there, but in
well nigh unbroken succession from estate
to estate they have attained a notable
stage in tbe civilization of the home. This
isthecomn on conviction, this the idol of
The idol itself may rest on the fact of
provincial isolation, which is the fortress
of self love and neighborly devotion; but
it suffices fr the present purpose to say
that it is an idol still, worshiped for the
divinity it is thought to enshrine. Hence
you may a ail the Kent uckian on many
grounds, an i he will hold his peace. You
may tell him that he has no great cities,
that he does not run with the currents of
national progress; but never tell him that
the home lit) of his fellows and himself is
not as good as the best in the land. Do
mesticity is the state porcupine, presenting
nn ani;ry qi ill to every point of attack.
To write of ionics in Kentucky, then-fore,
and particul irly of rural homes, is to enter
the very citadel of the popular allectious.

How to Clcmr an Elevator.
The crowd in the elevator was enough to
suffocate one. There was no excuse for it
either, becai.se the building was a well
known one d' wn town with several eleva
tors in cons' ant motion. Such was my
mental comment one rainy afternoon.
1 had a right to comment on the situa
tion, because I was one of the crowd in this
particular eli vator who were waiting for
it to start on its upward journey, while the
man in charge was exasperating enough to
keep waiting for the inevitable one more.
Meantime, a fat man was standing on my
most expensive corn and a blond type
writer had t he wet end of her umbrella
poked up my coat sleeve.
Desneratiot. and an idea came to me at
the same moment. Turning to a friend
who was with me I winked my right eye
and said in a solemn tone, "There was an
awful state if affairs at Xorth Brother
island this morning."
" ou were in the typhus ward, were you
not?" interrogated my friend, quick as
As I said "Yes" the elevator started up
with a jerk; t hen came in a chorus, which
sounded almos-t like a cry for mercy, "Let
me off at the first floor, please." When
the guard ope ied the door the way these
people scraml led out of that car was a
caution, and I was glad to note that the
blond with the umbrella prodded the fat
man in his ear in her excitement.
As we rode ip to the seventh story in
comfort we cheered up the guard by "put
ting him on.' and the hist comment we
heard from hi n when he let us out was:

try that myst If some day." Xew York

she said to the conductor.
From Sixth to Twelfth streets she was

At Twentieti street she collected her
parcels and st ired at the conductor to
remind him of his promise.
At Twenty-first she dropped a package
which another passenger stepped on, then
At Tenty-se.:ond she looked out of the
window to see i: the conductor had called
the right uumln-r.
At Twenty-third she moved to a seat
nearer the door.
From Twenty-third to Twenty-fifth she
was engaged it mentally criticising the
spring suit of tl e lady opposite her.
At Twenty-sith she nodded to the con
ductor. At Twenty-seventh she stood up and got
ready to leave the car.
As it stopped 1 1 Twenty-eighth street she
stepped from th; platform and with a sigh
of relief exclaimed, "Those horrid con
ductors can't be trusted to remember any
thing." Pittsbi.rg Post.

Christian Statues in the Ilahoiney Talace.
The statues oi the twelve apostles are
set up in the court of King Iiehanzin, the
ruler of Dahomty, who in his annual re
ligious celebrations is supjiosed to sacrifice
at least 1,000 human victims. The father
of the present kiiig some years ago received
a number of Catholic priests at his court,
and they won fa or in his eyes by teaching
the people tbe duty of submission to the
king. They induced the king to destroy
some of the indecent fetiches iu the capital.
When they were about to go away the
king said to-them, I have received you
well and have even demolished the fetiches
you think immoral, and iu return I now
insist that you shall show me your God to
set up m their place." They extricated
themselves from his difficulty by sending
for stutues of the twelve apostles, which
were set up in Alomey and are still there.

COMPARISON Tells the Tale.
The proper, most satisfactory and convincing way to form a
correct conclusion as to value is by comparison, It is im
possible to judge from newspaper quotations. For this rea
son we ask you to COMPARE our line of $4.35 Mens Suits
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Mens Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Mens Suits
with those others advertise at $10.00; our line of $9.90 Men's
Suits with those 'others advertise at $13.50. COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and frimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
other dealer, don't buy. All we ask that you compare,nothing can be fairer.
