conditions at this season pro?
duce a depressed, care-worn,
languid feeling, which per?
vades the entire body. When
nature, unassisted, attempts
to get rid of the accumulated

way, the appetite fails, a worn

result. All of which can be
avoided by a few bottles of

A Form of Kleptomania That
Prevails In Polite Society.
SOME SERIOUS TEA TABLE GOSSIP.
Fair Creatures Who IMuudor Their Ac?
quaintances l>y Exchanging Wraps and
Other Belonging* at Smart Functions?A
Boston Belle's Disagreeable Experience.
"Oh, glvo it any name you llko, borrow?
ing other pooplo's belongings and falling
oven to return them, mistaken identity as
to special possessions or kleptomania, but
I call It thioving, and something ought to
bo dono about it."
This is what the blond woman in tho
very smurt bonnet said to bor nearest
neighbor in blue, wheroupon every other
woman near tho tea tablo out short her con -
versation and held her cup in midair to
hear what the discussion would bring
forth.
"That I do," wont on the blond em?
phatically, "and I've been stolen from re?
peatedly. No, my dear, I won't tako a
word of it back, and I am not speaking
hastily. In every instance it was a plain
case of theft, and I've not up to dato re?
covered a single belonging. Why, of course,
if it had been n grimy lingered sneak thief
or u too enterprising housemaid, I most

naturally would havo gone to the polloe
and detectives for protection and assist?
ance, but it is not quito so easy to have an
individual who wears tho best French
glovos, whoso bonnets comn from an ex?
pensive importer's, and who sometimes
asks you to share her opera box, recoivo at
her teas or take a lift homo, in her brough?
am, arrested and searched on suspicion."
"Well, I never!" remarked tho woman
in blue.
"Oh, that's just because you nro a dear,
unsophisticated little creature, and out in
your western town thoy don't do such
things?the temptations are not so great.
But I can ussuro you that here in our big
cities, at regular intervals, polito klepto?
mania is simply rampant, and hardly a
big function breaks up that half the women
don't come away quito savago over tho loss
of some pretty und especially prized belong?
ing." Evidently tho blond was right, for
all tho other women nodded assent, and
the hostess was apparently breathless to
tell of sonio personal grievance on this
score when the first speaker broke in again.
"You see," she elaborated, "we used to
think it might havo been tho servants'
fault or an honest error when wo found
our possessions exchanged for others less
valuable or simply disappearing, until two
or three times tho offenders were caught
right in the act, and then came the awful?
ly dismal consciousness that really no ono
could bo trusted.
"My first experience was with a very
costly lace fan I carried to a dinner. I hold
on to it most affectionately throughout tho
evening until some half dozen of us wont
up to tho hostess' bedroom for our wraps.
There I laid it. with my vinaigrette and
fan, on the dressing table, and when I
turned to get them again the fan was gone.
I protested. The maid searched, but noth?
ing camo of it, and broken hcartedly I
went down, bewailing my loss to a sym?
pathetic feminine companion. Wo went
out to our respcctlvo carriages together,
but as the. butler opened the hall door a
puff of wind blew her long clonk aside, and
thcro I saw, snug in Its pocket, my precious
fan. Well, the next, day I wrote her vory
frankly, asking for its return, suggesting,
of course, she had taken it by mistake, and
home it came. But wo have never spoken
since.
"That taught mo to look for higher of?
fenders than maids in dressing rooms, who
uro usually accused of making way with
all wraps, umbrellas, overshoes and what
not that may be missing."
"Ah, that is not my trouble," chimed
In a debutante across tho toa table. "The
favorite plan is now to exchange bad for
good things. Iam growing almost phil?
osophical over tho dcplornhlo sbabbincss of
my wardrobe from this constant swapping.
Ijtist week, pn coming up lato to tho dress?
ing room from a dance, I found in place
of my brand new green suede carriage
overshoes two ovcrlargo, badly worn ones
of rusty black volvet, and, ray lace head
scarf exchanged for a frayed ono of sidled
white chiffon. Naturally cross and sleepy,
I fell on the tired maid, who wept and de?
nied, but looked as if sho could tell a tale.
"Only to make a tost case of It, I rolled
my new French goloshes in my mackintosh,
laid my card on top and put them in a safo
corner of tho dressing room of a house
where I went to luncheon tho other dny.
But it Wiis of no avail. Tho goloshes bad
been metamorphosed into a pair of muddy
rubbers with holes in them when I went,
back, and I didn't grumble, since my pret?
ty umbrella was left. Altogether, this
season has cost mo some four pairs of per?
fectly new ralnbootsund cndlcssumbrcllns,
and yot my case is not so hard as that of
other victims. The work of tho spoiler
i? ??? in the cloakrooms, when Iii;,' wed
^nions, teas, musicalcs and pri?
vate balls nro in progress.
"At ono of the big dances of the season
tho hostess simply ordered her maid to is
mio checks for every woman's wraps, and,
?harming to relate, not so much as a hair?
pin was lost, for at her daughter's wed?
ding reception, only u week before, three
limits got a\vay somehow without their
rightful owners, and the possessor of a
{300 saldo baud warmer found a scrubby
old astrakhan one in Its place.
"That is where these fashionable klepto?
maniacs salve their consciences by an ex?
change, you sen, for rarely Is anything
taken that some Inferior article Is not put
V

In.lts placo, ana very rarely ore thoy canght
up with. Their position in socloty Is ono
protection and their vlbtlms nro too timid
or too proud to trace a clew, whloh too of?
ten lends right to tho door of their host
frlonds, or some woman who Is aiding ma?
terially In holplng them along In society.
"There aro occasions, however, whoro a
bold spirit does demand jnstlco, and I do
know of on instance whore this determin?
ation to oherehor la feniino led to almost
tragic results. Both victim and tho guilty
ono had hard attacks of nervous prostrn
tlon after It, and the pretty aristocratic
kloptomnnlc has gono to livo permanently
abroad."
','Then thero Isn't tho slightest reason
why wo shouldn't hear all about it," In?
sisted tho blond, while everybody elso
olnmorcd for the story.
"Well, tho victim was a Boston girl,
who is not at all rich. So her joy and
prido in a brand new sealskin coat a
wealthy nunt gave her can bo understood.
During tho winter she was invited to stop
at a charming house In New York, and
during her visit a smart friend gave a
luncheon In her honor. It is needless to
say she woro the sealskin coat and had a
very good time. But all her prido was
turned to tears when she failed to find in
tho cloakroom her precious wrap. Laid
exactly In its place was a sealskin coat to
bo sure, but a caricature of her own now
and beautiful one. Tho hostess was In
despair and wroto around to all tho other
luncheon guests, asking if they had worn
her friend's coat homo by mistake. She
discharged the maid who had that day
presided over tho oloakroom, and the Bos?
ton girl went homo iu a state of almost
settled melancholy.
"Sho wore the ragged old substitute
around awhile, and finally ono day, when,
she was obliged tu mend ono of Its pockets,
put her band down in the lining and drew
out a letter?at least a piece of one, which
was nothing more than an affectionate
epistle to the hostess of that, fatal luncheon
from her husband. Being endowed with
plenty of genulno Now England frankness,
fearlessness and grit that. Boston girl
promptly took tho train for Now York.
Sho spent 2& intense minutes in the house
of her lute friend, and though sho came
out very pale, sho woro hor own long lost
sealskin coat, having resigned tho old ono
to Its rightful owner."
Ills Conversational ICIVort.
Ho did not know much about pictures,
and when she spoke of a girl friend's
achievements with a brash ho was n
little at sea. Ho said "Yes" and "No"
with reasonable accuracy until sho
happened to say:
"What I am especially disposed to
praise is her coloring."
"Her coloring!" ho echoed with alac?
rity. "It's superb! You know I always
did admire blonds."?Washington Star.
