HE BOUGHT A LICENSE.
II Cost ?10, but It Didn't Seem to Act
Wiser men thuu Peter Moronski have
been lost in tho city hall. No others
have been lost in quite tho same way,
however. Tho misunderstanding begun
when Peter stepped up to tho window
of tho milk inspection laboratory and
Enid bo wanted a license.
"Run a wugou or keep a store?" tho
"Keep a store. I don't see what
that's got to do with it, though. How
much is it?" ho added, as tho clerk fin?
ished filling out the blank.
"Fifteen dollars," said tho clerk.
Peter paid and went his way. All was
well until tho next morning, when Pe?
ter was found on hand waiting for tho
laboratory to bo opened. "Sco here,"
ho said. "They claim this license is no
"Sure," assented the knowing clerk,
"you can only sell milk in a store on
that. If you want to run a wngon,
you've got to got another license."
"I didn't try to run a wagon with it.
I only" ?
"Who said that license was no good,
"Tho priest? What's ho got to say
"Everything; and he Raid ho wouldn't
marry mo on no such license."

HOW THE GREAT EDITOR'S HAND?
WRITING SERVED. A TURN.
Its Illegibility Was Takeu Advaiitnco of
by tho Manager of tho Country Fair,
and the People of Oawog-o Falls Saw
and Heard the Lion of the Day.
Every compositor who ever put iii

certify to the fact that his handwriting
was almost illegible. It was tho despair

ley himself couldn't always decipher it
A tnau who was many years ago presi?
dent of tho Oswego County Agricultural
association said several days ugo that ho
had good reason ou one occasion to be
thankful that Mr. Greeley's writing
wus hard to decipher. This fact secured
for him a star attraction nt tho fair
which bo could not have obtained other?
wise. Tho association of which ho was
president inudo a great effort each year
to outdo rival associations in its fair,
and oue of its regular attractions was a
distinguished speaker who delivered an
address to tho crowd ou any subject that
he might select.
"When I wus made president," said
tho ex-officer of tho association, "I was
j-ouug and ambitious. I wanted to give
tho best fnir that ever had been held nt
O?wego Fulls, and I . was williug to
work hard to accomplish such a result.
Long beforehnud I stirred up the farm?
ers to raise big squashes and pumpkins,
und I prepared a good schedule of horse
races. I secured a man to make a bal?
loon ascension, and all that was lucking
in my programmo was the speaker.
"At that time Air. Greolcy was the
most conspicuous man in tho United
States. We all wanted to see him and
hear him speak. He was n very busy
man, however, and I knew that wo had
about one chance in ten of securing
him. I determined to take that chance.
After much preliminary thought nnd
many consultations with others I pre?
pared and sent to him a very creditable
invitation to attend our fair und deliver
an address on any subject that lie chose.
I assured him that ho would find ouly
friends in his audieuco, and I said that
we had long looked for such nil oppor?
tunity to hear him. Two days later tho
village postmaster told 1110 that ho had
a letter that ho thought was addressed
to inc. I had heard a good deal about
Greeloy's handwriting, and I knew at
once thut this was my reply from Mr.
Grceley. When I opened tho envelope, I
found a sheet of paper ou which wero
irregular scrawls that I couldn't de?
cipher. With several of my friends I
puzzled over it a long time, but I could
not read it. I remembered that the ed?
itor of our paper hud at one time been
familiar with Mr. Grceley's handwrit?
ing, and I took the letter to him. Ho
was a little out of practice, but he de?
ciphered it after half an hour's exami?
nation. Mr. Greelcy regretted that ho
was uuablo to accept our invitation.
That was a great disappointment to me.
I thought it over, und suddenly it
dawned on me that there was just a
chauco that I might by strategy get Mr.
Greelcy to Oswego Falls after all. I
sent him another letter that must have
staggered him. Mr. Grceley was well
aware of tho fact that his writing was
almost illegible, and ho was never
mucli surprised? when Iiis letters wero
misconstrued. I siiuyly took advantage
of that, and in my second letter I
thanked him for accepting our invita?
tion. To leave him no loophole for es?
cape, I told him that we had begun to
distribute handbills announcing the
fact thut ho was going to deliver the
address at the fair, and I added that I
hud ordered tho printers to place his
name in big letters on onr thrco sheet
posters. I knew that when ho got my
letter ho would concludo that wo had
read his letter declining tho invitation
us a letter of acceptance, and I hoped
when he learned how far we hud gone
with our printing that ho would con?
clude to come.
"Wo received no reply from Mr.
Grceley, but from time to timo we sent
him our posters and information about
tho fair and tho town. A weok before
the day set for tho address we sent him
a time table and told him on what
train wo should look for him. I was
uneasy ull this time, because I knew
that if Mr. Grceley didn't turn up I
should bo blamed. When the day for
the great event arrived, I went to the
station to await tho train. Sure enough,
Mr. Grceley was on board. I introduced
myself to him as the man who hud sent
him tho invitation and who had re?
ceived his very kind acceptance Mr.
Greoley looked at me closely, and there
was a .suspicion of a smile on his face.
" 'You had no difficulty in reading
my letter?' ho said.
"'Well, it was a little hurd to deci?
pher it at first,1 I replied, 'and wc wero
in doubt for a fow minutes whether you
had said "Yes" or "No" to our invita?
tion. When wo did decipher the letter,
wo wero very much pleased to find that
yon had agreed to come.1
" 'Humplil' said Mr. Grceley express- |
ively. 'Yon ordered your posters nt
onco, didn't, you?'
*' 'Yes,' I replied, 'we wanted every
one to know what an attraction wo had
"Mr. Grceley again looked at me
olosely, as if he were a bit suspicious.
Ho delivered tho address, and the
largest crowd in tho history cf the as?
sociation heard him. Whether lia
suspected the trick I had played on
him I never discovered. Ho intimated
to one of my friends that ho bad Iiis
suspicions, and he made tho remark
that I would make, an excellent politi?
cian. That was his only comment. 1
still have Mr. Grceley's letter, and any
one who will examine it will see bow
easily it might have been mistaken for
an acceptance."?New York Sun.

Luncheons and Two o'clock Teaa?Pur
nlshin? Libraries ? New Way to
Mako Iclnir-Cake That Will Keep.
From a lesson in ono of the Pratt in?
stitute courses, reported in tho New
York Times, tho followiug information
is gleaned: There is little difference be?
tween luncheon and tho 11 or 13 o'olock
breakfast. More hot dishes aro served at
tho breakfast and moro salads and en?
trees at tho luncheon. At the latter
bouillon is served in cups, and there aro
fruit salads and fruit punches. Grape?
fruit may form tho first course, vegeta?
ble salads tako tho placo of vegetables
and entrees the placo of joints and
roasts. Centerpieces mny bo of flowers
and ferns, fancy cakes or fruit. Like tho
dinner, tho lunoheou is served almost
entirely by the waitress, but the hostess
may do her share if sho desires. A
luncheon plate, or so called breakfast
plato, is used. It is considered hotter
taste to have tho silver for only two
courses placed on tho tablo at ono time,
and there should not bo moro than four
courses. A round tablo is always to bo
preferred. It is easier for conversation
and gives bettor scope for decoration.
Tho ? o'clock ten should have every?
thing licjit and delicate not to spoil
tho coming dinner. Tho cloth may be
plain or elaboratu and tho cups aliko
or all different, but always owllil and
thin. Tho kettle may be of copper,
brass or silver, but must always bo
shining. Tho biscuit must bo dry, tho
bread very thin, and only a suspicion of
sweet or very choico butter. Thero
should bp no danger of tho butter com?
ing in contact with gloves.
The sandwiches may bo only a sus?
picion <if fruit put between tbo biscuits.
Flower sandwiches may be made with
roses, clover or violets. To make theso
tho ordinary sweet butter may bo put
into a jar and closed w\) With a quanti?
ty of clover, roses or violets, or tho
bread may bo put into a bed of clover
iu a damp napkin.
Tea is made in many different ways.
To make French tea tako four tea
spoonfuls of toa, four cups of boiling
water, ono square of cnt sugar and
steep not longer than fivo to eight min?
Orange Pekoe is black tea, a favorite
on account of its beautiful amber col?
or. It is flavored with orange blossoms
or jasniiuc. Ten can bo mado by tho
waitn ss and brought in, or tho hostess
can preparo it.
A Leigh Hnnt cup of ten is mudo of
tea ground line or pulverized. It is
moistened with cold water and allowed
to stand 20 minutes. Add a cup and a
half of boiling water, steep one minute
ami serve with cream and sugar.
Five o'clock tea is mado by allowing
ono tenspoouful of tea to each cup of
boiling water. Steep ono to fivo min?
utes and servo with each cup a candied
ox heart cherry or a slico of lemon.
Libraries are furnished this season in
tones of red, with groat magnificence,
in somo well known houses. Tho flow
er-de-lnce in raised gold is sploudid in
effect, particularly with mahogany fur?
niture. Portieres and draperies can bo
employed iu different textures, to suit
tbo harmony of walls and floors. With
theso rooms, says Decorator and Fur?
nisher, black and white prints simply
framed and placed close togcthor aro
excellent as a wall decoration. Theso
combined with somo fine pieces of fai?
ence will quite set off tho whole.
T-. as a Cako.
To prevent tho icing of a cake from
running down tho sides an exchange ad?
vises as follows: Double a piece of oiled
paper three inches wide and pin it close?
ly around the cako, letting tho band
coino a half inch abovo tho cuke. In this
way n cako may bo frosted evenly and
with a thick layer to its edge. Do not
remove tho band of paper until tho icing
is thoroughly dry.
Boil green peas until tender, then
drain them. For every quart put in a

stir over the tiro for fivo minutes. Add
a cupful of white stock or cream and
