The Feminine Verbal Stab.
"Women are charming creatures, they
are also often terrible creatures, and once
in awhile tbey are simply so impossible
that one gives them up utterly. A woman,
a well known writer of verse, famous in
journalism, was requested to give a read
ing from her own verse. After the read
ing was over a woman approached the poet
and asked, with every outward evidence of
surprise, "Are you really Miss Blank, who
wrote those beautiful verses?" naming one
of the writer's finest achievements.
The poet blushed, as she fancied she saw
the compliment approaching. Imagine
her amazement when the woman said:
"Well, I was never so disappointed in my
life. Yon don't look at all as I thought you
would not in the very least like a poetess."
The writer recovered herself at once. She
even smiled and assured the woman that
she could appreciate her disappointment;
in fact that she had lonj; disapproved of
her own appearance. Mildred Aldricb in
"One of the most extraordinary forms of
insanity is a mania for stealing women's
shoes," said Dr. Dodd, pliysician at tbe
Eloomingdale asylum. "It is distinguished
as a disease by itself, and the Germans
have named it 'Fruuenschustehlmono
manie.' It is more common among men
than with the other sex. There is one case
on record of a young man whose sisters
lost their left shoes as fast as they could
buy them. It was always the left one of
each pair that was taken. For a long time
the thefts remained a mystery, until one
day the brother caught a young woman in
the street, threw her down, tore off her left
shoe and ran away with it. He was cap
tured and thus the secret was discovered."

WHERE WAS I Af?
This question, which a mem
ber of CoDgreBS directed to the
Speaker of the House, has now
become historical. People ask
it ad a joke. Anyone who has
a cold may well ask himself
the question in sober earne8t,for
a cold is the entering wedge,
the gate ajar, that leads to
graver evils. . Nine tenths of
the people of th world are
swept away by maladies that
begin with a Eimple cold; this
mai'S congestion. When the
surface bo congested is small,
the mtlady is slight; when it is
large the malady is serious In
