EMBARRASSED BY A HEADLIGHT.
Perplexity of a Red Xoaed Man by an In
quisitive Small Boy.
The Alton limited train for Chicago had
just pulled out of the Union depot when a
round faced, red cheeked boy about six
years old stood up in a reclining chair and
surveyed the crowded car.
"Isn't it funny, mamma," he observed to
a pretty woman of thirty, who sat by his
side, "that all these people took a notion
to go same day we did?"
"It is the same every day, darling," the
"Where do they go, mamma?"
"Everywhere. Some will get off at In
dependence, some at Slater, some at Glas
gow, some at Centralia and"
"Say, mamma (with great vigor), just
look at that man with the funny nose.
What makes it bo red?"
"But, mammal See him smile."
"Don't talk any more, darling."
The youngster got up on the seat, and
leaning against the back of it looked hard
at the red nosed gentleman behind. He
was quiet for two minutes, when he ob
served: "Say, mister, what makes your nose so
The pretty woman of thirty blushed until
she was redder than the bulbous nose.
"Come here, my little man," said the
gentleman softly, "and I'll tell you all
The boy jumped down, and before his
mother could catch him he was in the red
nosed gentleman's lap.
"Do you want a banana?" the gentleman
"Oh, yes," said the boy, "but I want you
to tell me what makes your nose red first."
His tones were very distinct. The
mother blushed furiously and once or
twice the travelers thought she was about
to apologize to the gentleman with the
red nose, but she sat st ill and looked at
"Here comes the fruit man," said the
gentleman softly. "Don't you want an
"Yes, and some figs. Have you got a lit
"Yes, I have three little boys."
"Is all their noses red?"
Somebody behind laughed and the gen
tleman looked sour. Even the pretty wo
man of thirty, now red faced, smiled a lit
tle. "And say, mister, don't it feel funny to
have a red nose?"
"Sb: Don't you want this oranpre?"
"Yes, but I'd think it would be hot there
on the end."
"Isn't this a nice banana?"
"Let me feel the end of your nose, mis
ter." The little woni.'.n ahead could stand it
no longer. She jumped from her seat and
went biick to the younystcr.
"I'm afraid, sir," slie said to the gentle
man with tbe red nose, "that my little boy
is annoying you."
"Uli, no; not at all," said the gentleman.
"On the contrary, I am enjoying his com
pany very much."
"Say, mamma," chirped the youngster,
"this gentleman says he's got three little
boys with re.l noses."
"Ain't you, mister?"
"Ha! ha! Oh, yes," the gentleman re
retnrnetl with evident effort.
"Come with mamma, dearie. You must
go to sleep soon."
"I'd rather stay here."
The gentleman was silent.
"Well, you must keep quiet," said the
pretty woman of thirty.
"1 will, mamma."
Two minutes later the traveler heard a
faint whisper from the boy.
"Say, mister," he said, "ain't you glad
you've got such a red nose?"
There was a snicker across the aisle.
"No," whispered the gentleman hoarse
ly; "keep still."
There was more silence, while the boy
slowly ate his banana. He felt rebuked,
and inch by inch he slid from the lap of the
gentleman with the red nose. Then he ran
to the pretty woman of thirty.
"Say, mamma," he said, after he had
nestled in her skirts a moment, "you don't
know how funny that gentleman's red nose
Just then the conductor happened in.
lie was instantly hailed by two persons,
"Have you a lower berth in the Chicago
"Just two," replied the conductor.
"I want to go back with my little boy,"
said the pretty woman of thirty.
"And you, sir?" queried the conductor.
"I have concluded not to go to Chicago,
but I will take a birth in the St. Louis
sleeper if you have one left."
It was the gentleman with the red nose,

Scarfa and Searfpina.
The assertiveness of neckwear as a dom
inant factor in the masculine ensemble
has had much to do with the enhanced im
portance of the scarfpin. Indeed, from its
position in the fabric, and because of its
glitter, which first catches the eye, it :s
perhaps the most conspicuous appurte
nance of men's wear. There has come to
be therefore, of necessity, a fixed etiquette
of the scarfpin that may not be defied with
out offending good taste.
Iu the "all over" big scarfs, the Burling
ton "once over," and the rest, t.here is, as
with all the De Joinville school, including
the Ascot, an absolute necessity for the
There are in these instances certain por
tions of the scarfing to le held together In
a certain place and in a certain way. The
absence of the scarfpin under these circum
stances would indicate that such an article
was not in the repertory of the wearer of
the neck dressing. It were therefore bad
judgment to attempt to wear a fine neck
scarf "incompletely, and a publishment of
impecuniosity at the same time. Clothier
Great Men and Their Opinions.
Dr. Johnson in all his greatness defied
the world of fashion and opinion, living
the life of a sloven. Our own Dr. Frank
lin was like the Englishman in some re
spects, and he appeared to be fond of im
itating him in others, for he persisted in
wearing a shaggy, shabby old enp, even
among the savants and crowned heads of
the Old World, when he was the United
States minister at the court of France.
Every schoolboy has heard how Nero
defied public opinion, living in riot and
revelry when the souls of his countrymen
were in woe and blood. Napoleon rubbed
his hands over burning Moscow, saying,
"This is comfortable." Half a millionsol
diers were at the same time reading the
doom of death in the lurid flames.
It was the conflict of opinion which gave
birth to the maxim that "Where igno
rance is bliss it is folly to be wise." Cor
rectness and taste even these frequently
depend upon the mental standpoint of the
individual sitting in tbe judgment seat.
