SHE SPOKE AT LAST.
A Schoolteacher Who Was Festered by
"Maaher" Turned on Him.
It was one of those frosty, nippy morn
ings when the pavements were icy and
winds piercing. A small, plump damsel
(by profession a schoolteacher), with rosy
cheeks, might have been seen tripping
along the Blippery sidewalks of Ken
wood. It was very early, not yet 8
oclock, and the little schoolmarm hur
ried, followed by a middle aged man
who had got off the car obviously to fol
"It's very slippery, isn't it?" he puffed
as he overtook her.
The young woman's eyes flashed, but
she only gave a little tug at her scrap of
dotted face veil, thrust her hands de
terminedly into her muff and sped on.
A calling card, one of her own, was
ticking out of her little jacket pocket,
with only the first two words, "Miss
Elizabeth," just visible and the last
The stout man saw it.
"Your name's Elizabeth, isn't it?" he
said cheerfully. "Do you know you re
mind me so much of Lena Morris? She
was an old sweetheart of mine, and I was
awfully fond of her."
No answer from the young woman ex
cept a quickening of her already Nancy
"Don't go so fast," said her tormentor.
"You might slip and fall. I really won
der that you are not afraid to venture
out such a bad day."
Miss Blackeyes said nothing. She had
about reached the drug store where she
was to wait for her car.
As she went into the store with glow
ing cheeks, the dapper young clerk said,
"Don't you want to come over by the
stove and get warm?"
"I want to know why I am a target f-r
every insolent man in- town this morn
ing," she snapped as she glanced through
the door and saw the short, stout man
patrolling tho sidewalk and evidently
still intent on pursuit. The drug clerk
subsided, the car came, and on she got,
with the man at her heels. He sat down
beside her. When she arrived at her
street corner, ho arose and followed her
gut of the car. She had almost reached
her school and was getting brave. Again
he walked beside her and asked her if
she wouldn't "say something to him."
Her voice had not a tremor, but was
deliciously clear and steady as she spoke
for the first time.
'Certainly," she said. "Do you know,
I was just wondering if a man ever lived
to hf your age before let me see, you
must be 50 at lenst who was capable of
acting so perfectly idiotic. Now, for my
part, I can tolerate a young, empty
headed masher, but as for an old fool
like you" but the middle aged, short,
stout mun had fled. Chicago News.

Letters to Keail I'ropln.
Enterprising tradesmen in this city, in
the distribution of their circulars, are
not backward in utilizing the lists of
distinguished persons which are printed
in the newspajiers from time to time.
Not infrequently do they get hold of the
names of men who long since passed
over to that "undiscovered country,"
and circulars and prospectuses are
mailed to the dead as well as to the liv
ing. It would seem that a name once
enrolled on a tradesman's mailing list
is never erased. Circular letters ad
dressed to "Samuel J. Tilden" are still
occasionally left at the Gramercy park
mansion, and mail matter addressed to
W. n. Vanderbilt reaches the Grand
Central station every now and then.
Many clubmen have recently received
from a shirtmaker what purports to be
an autograph letter saying: "I am anx
ious to have you for a customer, and I
want to make you a sample shirt free of
charge. Of course I cannot do this for
every one, but for you it will afford me
great pleasure to do so." New York
Old Kales For Night Policemen.
Old Boston is vividly brought to mind
by the following excerpt from the "Se
lectmen's Minutes," dated Nov. 1, 1769,
containing instructions to watchmen: '
"In going the Rounds Care must be
taken that the Watchmen are not noisy,
but behave themselves with strict deco
rum, that they frequently give the Time
of the Night and what the Weather is
with a distinct but moderate Voice, ex
cepting at Times when it is necessary to
pass in Silence in order to detect and se
cure persons that are out on unlawful
"You and your Division must endeavor
to suppress all Routs, Riots and other
Disorders that may be committed in the
Night and secure such Persons as may
be guilty; that proper steps may be
taken next Morning for a prosecution as
the Law directs. We absolutely forbid
your taking private satisfaction or any
bribe that may be off er'd you to let such
go or to conceal their offense from the
Selectmen." Boston Transcript.

Sauces and Condimeuta.
Pepper is simply a general stimulant fu
the digestive tract. It braces the stomach,
gives a sense of warmth aud causes a flow
of the digestive fluids of the stomach.
Mustard has a somewhat similar action,
while salt and vinegar serve the doable
purpose of supplyiug the needs so far as
saline matters are concerned and rendering
oleaginous matters fit for speedy absorp
tion. Tabasco, Worcestershire, pipricoa and
other suuees have many merits, especially
when one partakes of fish or salmis. A
dressing is absolutely necessary for a boiled
or baked fish, and no salad outside of the
watercress or celery is fit to be taken into
the stomach without the stimulus to di
gestion which the dressing furnishes. Jen

A Queer Advertisement.
After advertising several weeks, E. C.
Quinby of Carthage, Ills., succeeded in
purchasing 1,500 cats. He tagged them
with advertisements of his business,
turned them loose, and in a few hours
every town within a radius of 80 miles
from Carthage was deluged with cats
advertising Quinby 'a store. Atlanta
Beware of "Cheap" Canned Stun.
There is one great danger connected
with preserved goods, and that is that
the insane mania for cheapness at all
risks which some women have has in
duced dishonest people to put inferior
goods upon the market, but if a house
keeper is careful to buy none but the
best and sees that they are propetly pre
pared by her cook she need have no fear
but that her tinned vegetables are as
harmless as the same substances in their
raw and natural state, and she will have
the advantage of procuring an infinite
variety for her table at a very small out
lay both of time and money. New York
