a Mnn Wife Carried the 1'urse?a
Two passengers on a New Haven train
approaching tho city a few luornings
ago conversed together in n loud tone
that is, one of tbeni, who was blnff,
hearty. stOtlt and a bachelor, talked in
a particularly loud voice, while his com?
panion, who was thin, meek and a bene?
dict, answered in lower tones, which
wcio still not iuandiblo after tho pas?
sengers iu tho seats near by begun to
take an interest in the conversation.
" No," said the bachelor, "they wnut
mo to get married, but I tell thorn that
I'vo seen enough of married pcoplo and
I don't care to be tied down tho way
most of them are. Why, thero was a
man down in our place died not long
ago, and the widow enmo down to get
his wages. He had died on a Friday,
and ho had u week's wages coming to
him. Yon ought to have seen that wid?
ow when sbo found out. how much ho
pot a week. Ho had been taking his
wages home to her every week and giv?
ing it all to her to divide, as she sup?
posed. But when sho found out that ho
had been getting $3 a week moroall tho
time she seemed to wish that ho wore
alivo again just for a little while, bot I
guess that he would just as soon have
been dead if he had had his choice then.
I have heard lote of people say that you
ought to take all your money home to
yotir wife, hut I don't want any on?
telling me how much I shall spend tor
carfare or luncheon."
"Well, thero is something in that,"
said tho married man basely. Ho was n
particularly hnmhlo looking man, who
crouched down in his si at as it' he did
not dare sit upright, but his wife was
far away, and be w::s emboldened, in
the confidences of talk on a suburban
train, to reveal bis woes. "Now, I do
feel badly sometimes when I want to
take a man out to luncheon with me
and spend some money in entertaining
him. If I don't do it, I cannot very well
keep his custom, and if I do it, it costs
so much money that my wife, who
knows just what I receive, thinks I am
dreadfully extravagant, and talks to mo
about tho way in which I am wasting
"Yes, that's just it, "said tho loud
voiced bachelor. "If you don't spend
money you loso trade, and yet you mar?
ried men aro half of you afraid to go
around and spend money freely on your
customers. I know a man in our storo
who doesn't dare spend more than 35
cents for luncheon for fear his wife will
find it out. They talk abont letting your
wife spend all your money, but for my
part I'd rather spend it myself, and
that's why I tell all my friends that I
am not going to be married. "
Just at this point the train entered
the Park avenue tunnel and the voice of
iho base revealer of secrets, who did
not worthily support the part of tho
married man, was lost iu the rurublo of
tho train.?New York Tribune.

Fur occupies n very important place in

mine and other fur, while for deeorativo
purposes it is cut in bands plain and with
tails or animal hands, or is employed for

tho face. Ono kind of fur is used to trim
another kind, a fur cape having a collar
and edge of different fur. Otter, for ox

fur forms the decoration.
A picture is given of a pretty walking

long time. Long swooping plumes are
worn, Prince of Wales groups, clusters of
tips, single tips, rows of lips and feather
trimming, and all these aro worn, not
merely on hals and bonnets, but on man?
tles, fancy waists and evening gowns. A
