Simultaneously with such disgrace

BUYING A BABY CARRIAGE.
Jones Knew a Thins or Two tint Not
Mark About Wheel.
An imports it thing had-r.appened
in young Mr. Jonos household and
he wont over to the city to buy a
baby carriage. Nothing was too
good for him and ho finally selected
a delicate creation of wickerwork,
with Russian leather trimmings and
pale blue silk lao. Jones lives in

He succeeded finally in unpacking
the carriage and wheels, though in
doing so ho nearly smashed his
thumb with th.j hammer. He screwed
on the wheels und, then setting the
carriage up, examined his work with
a critical eye.
Certainly the vehicle had a pecu
liar appearance. It seemed lopsided,
having a decidt d list to the star
board. -That ain't the one I or
dered," said Jo.ies to the nurso girl,
who came in just then and had fixed
a pair of wonde -ing eyes on the car
riage. "The ore they old me was
straight, and I'd like to know what
they take me for to send a thing like
this." Jones -rave the carriage a
vicious push and it wheeled around
in a circle, as a du.'k swims when
one side is para yzed by a shot.
Jones was ma 1 clean through. He
had the carriage put in the cellar
and wrote to tho firm from which he
b.3d purchased it to send a man to
take their -dopi-ided swindle" away.
Jones hadn't cooled off when the
man ca.ne to look at the carriage.
The man listenei patiently to Jones'
opinion of the fi.-m while he was get
ting the carriacr; out of the cellar.
V. hy, you b'amed fool!"' he re
plied, however, when the vehicle was
finally .-ubmittei. to him for inspec

good cigar a::d opened a bottle of

too good to keep. The man told one
of Joik-s" neighbors whom he met
outside the liou-i , anil so the story
spread. That'; the reason people
look so curiousdy at the carriage
when Jones take the baby out, and
then at Jones anc then snicker.

It often happens that when the
master of a ship serves out an exem
plary punishment at the beginning of
a voyage he has little occasion to re
peat it, for the cr i w realize that ho
intends to be "toss." On a recent
cruise of one of tl c ships of the white
fleet a sailor was to le punished for
disobedience, anil the crew lurked
about the deck to learn what would
be done with him. Tho captain low
ered the offender' grade, thus reduc
ing his shore leav , then ordered him
to bo put in the caboose. As he was
being led away the captain added:
"in solitary confinement for five days;"
a moment later, "cp Vrvjad and water,"
and finally, as the culprit reached the
hatchway, "cut of his tobacco." Tho
men were awed by the severity of
"the old man," and there was not
another arrest on tho voyage, even
though the captain relented and freed
the man after tho first day of his

Kind as to which n the costliest fur

few are aware that the skin of a fox
brings tho highest price in the fancy
6kin market. This is the black fox of
Kamchatka. whose -skin dresses a very
becoming blue. Those animals are
very scarce and ha -d to kill, and for
this reason especially their fur is
worth a small fortune, a single skin
seldom going begging for a purchaser
at as reasonable a figure as $1,000.
Astrakhans are stdl very valuable,

comes to competing with a skin as
valuable as that ol a black or blue
fox, which has so n any lovers in Eu

mere bagatelle, although it costs a
first-class salaried n an a whole year's
income to secure it.
