Queen Victoria and t ie Vmlirella.
I was reading a story th I other day that
made quite an impression on my mind. It
is well known that the c ueen of England
loves to go about in simple guise among
the cottages of the poor. One day the
queen was caught in a shower and she
entered the dwelling of at old woman; the
old dame's sight must ha m, been dim, for
she did not recognize her sovereign. "Will
you lend me an timbre lit.?" said the royal
lady, who did not happen to have one with
her. The old woman granted the request
grudgingly. "I hae two umbrellas." said
the dame; "ane is a good one, t'other verra
old. Ye may take thi; I guess I will
never see it again." Am. she proffered a
ragged concern whose whalebone ribs
might be seen here and here through the
coarse torn cover.
England's queen quietly took the um
brella, which was lietter .han nothing, and
went forth into the rail., not by one word
betraying her rank. The next day one of
her majesty's servants irought back the
wretched umbrella, and then the cottager
knew to whom she had 1-nt it. "Aye, aye,
had I but kenned who t was that asked
for the loan, she wad hi e been welcome to
my best to a' that I 1 ae i' the world!"
exclaimed the mortified old woman,
shocked and grieved at 1 aving missed such
an opportunity of wim ing a smile from
the queen. Mrs. Rottonie in Ladies' Home
Across the Line.
Across the line of tell phone communica
tion there has passed e cry day for many
weeks a simple call and answer which cut
into the mass of business or social repartee
with a solemn persist ;nce. Dividing an
inquiry as to the success of a dance the
night previous, the exchange notes of the
board of trade men, the inquiries as to
when a certain dress would be finished,
the impatient call for .'o. 1,000, or "Jim is
that you?" came these brief sentences:
"How is Mrs. M wlay?"
"A little better; trok some nourish
ment," or, "Much woie; has not reco
nixed any one."
At midnight last i ight the telephone
liell rang sharply, and the familiar ques
tion, so often repeated was again asked:
"How is Mrs. M it this hour?"
The answer came back with suppressed
tones that seemed to v bratewith anguish:
"She has just passed away."
And as the answer r 'aches t be ear of the
anxious watcher the clock strikes 12. and
fervently the sore heart responds, "All is
well. Detroit free I'ress.
Why W Have Many I : l lis.
Many reasons have been adduced for civ
iiic to the same brand of cigar four or five
different names, and some of the reasons
sound very childish. But there is one
good reason, and it is this: In nearly every
small or medium siztd town a dealer de
mands the exclusive handling of a brand
of cigars, or he will not sell them at all.
aim wnen a oranu n is only one name its
sale would be tiracti sally limited to one
house in each town. By putting lip the
cigars in boxes of (lif erent shapes and ap
plying four or live names to them it is
easy to give as many dealers the exclusive
right they desire as there are names to a
brand. No attempt whatever is made to
change the appcara ice of the cigar, and
old time smokers t, romptlv discover the
little deception, bat in a general way it
serves a good purpos s and den s no one any
harm. St. Louis Gli lie Democrat.
Eucaly itua Oil.
Eucalyptus oil hf.s come into such de
mand that over 20,010 pounds have been
sent to England from California in one
year, the trees havii g been planted in im

Iu lS8;i it was discovered that a decoction
of the leaves would remove the incrusted
scales from lioilers. While the engineers
were preparing the liquid they imagined
the odor cured one of bronchitis and the
other of asthma, ard they started a fac
tory to extract th ! oil at San I-iorenzo,
which is said to liux e been the beginning
of this industry. ew York Independent.
Bartering Used to Be an Art.

Fatigue Auta as n Poison.
Fatigue caused !.y brain work, says Pro

which affects all t ne organs, especially the
muscular system. The blood of dogs fa

other dogs, make - them exhibit all the
symptoms of fatigue. New York Times.
