Her Anxiety Orercame and tbe Plata Saved From Destruction. ' He was making an evening call, and ehe was showing him some of her por celain. It was beautiful porcelain, and he prized It like anything. "Here is a Cerves plate," she said, that mamma bought only yesterdaay for me.' It is so pretty that I just want to use it and get the benefit of t? I'm not one of those persons who don't like to touch anything "because it is valuable, and never get the value of it at all." . - "Why don't you then?" asked the young man. . . ' "Well, I'm so afraid of t?ie kitchen girl. She's so careless, you know, and she's likely as not to break It all to smithereens." I'll fx that for you," said the young man. Taking the plate gently from her band, he drew out his knife and pulled one of the blades out. Holding the knife by th tip "'Vthe blade, he gave it- a -5.17,?.- ?Nnst the beautiful and frail Sevres sfirV -and nickeda small piece from thage?i'P1-?ite' was barely pejeeptlble, but the young woman started forward in horror.

But the young man remained calm, and unruffled. He returned the knife to his pocket and handed the plate back to herJ "It will never be broken now," he saurmured with a smile. "Don't you know," he replied, "that an article that has once been nicked entirely from that time onward, but lasts a lifetime? Nobody will even no tice that slight defect, or it wont hurt If they do, but the plate is safe now for years and years." And lo, 'twas even so. N. Y. Jour asi. f One of Depews Best. Some of the best stories that are told at Lotus Club dinners reach only the small audience that gathers in the cafe flown stairs,, after the toasts have been spoken to, for a more informal enter tainment as a conclusion. To such an ludienee one evening Doctor Depew, in speaking of the many requests he re ceived for passes, said: A man -whom I 'have not seen since we-were boys together called on me Ikl- . . lMnnl. He looked rather seedy, and he told me he wasn't prosperous. We talked about the days when we were boys together, nd the little red schoolhouse, and how the years had dealt with each of us. "I am glad to see you are getting along nicely, Chauncey," he said. "Thank you,". I replied, "and how have you prospered?" "I have not, .prospered at all," he said, wiping a tear from the corner of ais eye, "but I am on the eve of suc cess If you'll give me a little aid, Chauncey." "What can I do for you?" . "Well, I want a pass to Wapplnger Falls." : "What are you going to do there to bring you success?" I asked. "I'm going to deliver a lecture. It's i good lecture, and it will bring me tame and money." "And what are you going to lectura ibout?" I asked. "I'll tell yon, Chauncey, after I get -the pass." s I wanted to aid my old friend, and I Bad a pass made out for him. Giving it to him, I said with some curiosity, "Now, John, what is the subject of this lecture of yours?" . , John braced up, threw back his doulders, and proudly answered, ; "I am going -to lecture on how to cake money." longest listence of Human Vision. The longest distance ever encompas , ed by the human vision, so far as the records go, is -183 miles, between the Uncompahgre Peak, in Colorado, and , Mt. Ellen, in Utah. This feat was ac complished by the surveyors of the United States coast and geodetic sur vey, who are now engaged in conjunc tion with representatives of other na tions in making a new measurement of the earth. The observers on the Pa eiflc coast have been able to signal fiom Mt Shasta to Mt. Helena, a distance of 190 miles, but have never been able to get a- response.

One mother, and there are many oth ers like her, has learned that scolding does not improve her boy's membry. Constantly reminding him of hi3 faults was going far towards spoiling his temper and her own and did no good, so at last she tried a new way. It was not easy at first, but it has worked so well that she is happy over the change. For instance, Jack would not black his shoes; he always "forgot." So she gave him a complete blacking outfit, a handsome cherry wood box, with firm, solid legs, good brushes and a box of good blacking. This she put into his Ci;n room and on the wail ! above It hune a nfeitT-eik'n.:' tilling elinnM Ynorlr the rfnvs v?lp" " l ,v ouvia.v - polished. amja "vl The first calendar was awful!

' - Blacking his shoes so much soils his hands sadly. On Christmas morning his mother gave him two or three nice nail and hand brushes (she could ot well afford a manicure set), with some excellent soap, an ordinary file and a pair of scissors, and his hands are readily improving. Clearing up his room was always a trial, his bureau drawers especially, till she hit on the plan of placing in them pretty boxes marked "cuffs," "collars," scarfs," "handkerchiefs," "buttons and jewelry," and once a week of putting into each drawer which she finds in perfect order a five oent piece, while into each one in dis order goes a little slip of paper with "Mother is sorry" written on it. Jack fairly hates the "sorries" and really tries to make his mother glad by being more neat. If the "nickels" are an extra inducement, why not? He does not like to get up in the morning, and he used to come down to his breakfast with an ugly scowl on his face till his mother set a hand mir ror at his plate, and kept it there through one dreadful month of break fasts. N Now he smiles all over his face for very joy that it is not there. I might tell you more of the ways this mother takes to cure her boy's bad habits and foster the good ones. How she has grown more patient and loving in dealing with him in this manner. Perhaps some one says: "She is bribing her boy to be good." But isn't it money well speat if it wins him to be neat, orderly and gentle? Are not the pretty things which find their way into his room .though her own may be bare of them the com fortable lounge, the table with its brightly burning lamp and the latest number of his own loved magazine, and boy's paper ministers of good if they help him to love his little room so that he will not leave it for the street and its attractions? Philadel phia Record. Bread In Waxed Paper, When the housekeeper becomes as wise as she is progressive she will learn that her bread and cake ought to be delivered to her done up in waxed paper. Bread from bakeries and pub lic places, such as stores and distrib uting stations, ought to be wrapped, each loaf separately, in waxed paper. A few dealers are using this sort of wrapping, which is put around the loaves as soon 'as they are baked. A string is tied around the package, and the knot is sealed and stamped with the baker's name and the weight and quality of the bread. In this way it is kept from contact with disease germs, and is also moist and wholesome.

The Band, Gusset and Seam is a so ciety recruited from an exclusive cir cle of Nob Hill's youthful matrons. It meets through the winter, with aggra vated activity during Lent, at houses of the members; its symbol "First flan nels to the indigent;'' its symbol, a thimble crossed by a pair of scissors argent on a background of flannel gulea surmounted !;' a spool of thread couch ant, 'i , The, demure maid who serves bouil-loti,'-tea and chocolate to the society's fair Dorcases hears tales from every Quarter of the globe of life in the summer colonies along the New Eng land coast of yachting cruises through Norwegian fjords in the yellow wake of the midnight sun, of walking tours in the Landes and camping trips in the north woods. .She-knows her planet better than many whose orbits are less circumscribed and can safely be re lied upon for information regarding elk in Oregon or salmon in the Co lumbia the proper time to hunt the grizzly in Assiniboia and the relative merits -of the Andalusian -donkey and bia-iin brother the Rocky Mountain Surro.' J After serving the Bradamete of the .Society with a cup of tea and a caviare sandwich she retires to a dusky corner of the room refills the lamp under the brazen kettle and rearranges the Dres den cups and saucers and the jewel mounted spoons upon the teakwo'od table. When the fluffy haired Mrs. Jack, the society's president and hostess of the occasion, begins her story, there is a lull in the talk, which the wind fills in with a neatly executed arpeggio. Mrs. Jack's mouth droops in wistful curves and beside her eyes an infant's would seem sophisticated. "Jack says I must go .with him to Africa,i but I shall never dare to look a tiger in the face after my experience on the Big Muddy." Mrs. Jack's adventures have familiar ized the society with Tin Cup, Big Bug, Bumblebee and Medicine Hat. But the Big Muddy offers delightful fields for speculation, for it has not yet found a place on any map, and its only high roads are the half obliterated trails lefi by the Utes when they willingly de parted for new hunting grounds. "You remember the bighorn I shot after Jack and the guides had tracked him for ten days over the Rattlesnake range in Wyoming?" Mrs. Jack con tinues plaintively. The society remembers the bighorn as well as the giant shark in the Mexi can gulf, the mountain lion and the cinnamon bear with amber eyes picked off by Mrs. Jack's rifle In the San Fran cisquito mountains. The idea of hei not daring to look a tiger In the face under any circumstances taxes the credulity of the society. Has she ever known fear, ever quailed before beast, bird or fish this modern Artemis? When "she accompanies her husband on his hunting expedition, she wears the woods' autumn livery leaf brown and scarlet an abbreviated skirt and leggings of brown corduroy, a scarlet leather shirt with elks' teeth for but tons, a hat festooned with trout and salmoin flies and shining leaders. A cartridge belt girdles her slender waist, with its depending revolver and hunt ing knife. It is remarkable that Mrs. Jack has escaped the cinnamon's embrace, and bruin might well be pardoned such an indiscretion. "Jack has always said that my phy cical courage first attracted him. But I had never confessed to him that there j was one set to which I should be un equal. It came on the Big Muddy. ' Listen: "We were camped in the quaking as- j pen. Snow had fallen, and the elk were coming down. You could hear them bungling on every side just before j dawn. It is easy to stop a band of elk as they pass your camp by imitating 1 their call upon an empty cartridge shell. I have learned the trick, and Jack had no hesitation in permitting me to choose my own trail one morn- j ing and following it alone afoot, he and the guides scattering in other di- j rections. The taste of the camp coffee was'still upon my lips, my cheeks tin-! gled'.with the frosty breath of the j morning air as I kept cautiously to the windward of the elk, who trumpeting stirred me like martial music. "A stray bear track showed here and there in the fresh snow. But I was af- ter elk. A hundred miles lay between our camp and the nearest settlement. Ah, the solitude of those woods!" I Mrs. Jack leans back in her chair , and sighs reminiscently as she gazes ; into the blazing hearth fire, a charming picture in her house gown of old blue, brightening with gleams of Persian embroidery, interwoven with uncut jewels. "I. had gone three miles, perhaps four, over fallen spruce up the steep side of a rugged mountain, when crash across my trail came a band of ells. ; headed by a magnificent bull. j "Crouching behind a bowlder, I wait-' ed. I have waited so often for big game, from Alaska to the gulf. Jack says I have seen more than he can ev er hope to see if he lives to be 100. My hand was steady. Jack often gets bucl) ' fever. I never do. I took deliberate j aim. The elk came toward the bullel and dropped dead without a struggle.' Blazing the trail as I retraced it to-j ward camp for the pack animals, I sas that there were new bear tracks. I was not out that day for bear, and I did not care to come upon one alone, al though I had no thought of shirking the encounter were it forced upon me. "A bear in a bear pit is a clumss creature. In the woods he chal lenges your admiration by. .his clevej fashion of covering the ground with out apparent effort. The one I soon descried ahead of me was lumbering along like a bunch of tumbleweed, lengthening the distance between us at a rapid rate. "Foolishly I indulged myself in a shot at him, striking his shoulder. He turned upon me with a roar of pain. At that instant I needed all ay nerve. This time I chose a tree for cover and awaited. He came on without a halt, straight toward me. 1 fired again, missing him. I was Just about to try a third sbot when the test came, of which I have spoken." "The test?" murmurs the society breathlessly. "The test of my courage to which I had always felt I should be unequal the thing I had dreaded In my forest wanderings with Jack." "What!" the society demands, with one voice. "I had raised my rifle, when I felt eomefhing fluttering In my hair. I fancied a leader had slipped from my hat rim. Oh, horror! It was a spider! And as I shook my head violently to dislodge it. It strugp'ed into' my ear. "I have never been conscious of hav-' ing fired that third shot. Somehow the rifle was discharged, and by the same chance the bullet lnid the bear low. "I fainted, and when I came to my self I was lying across the bear's body, with six strange men standing around me. "Ten thousand boiler factories were at work in my brain. 'Hear the noises!' I cried. 'Will no one stop them?' , "And now comes the strangest part of my story. "The engineer of Jack's yacht once got a mosquito in his ear. It drove him quite mad before we could find a doc tor. He hung over the yacht's side, held by six of the crew, begging for death. When the doctor arrived upon the scene, he applied a handkerchief wet with ether to the man's ear, quiet ing the mosquito's struggles and re storing the man to sanity. ' . ,'T believe myself in the man's plight stark staring mad when upon this peak of Darien, BOO miles from an am bulance and a Burgeon, I heard one of the men to whom Ihad so wildly ap pealed, reply quietly, ijRve no fear, madam. You are in safe haujs, for we are all doctors.' ', "They deluged my ear with water from a nearby stream, which they brought in a tin cup. Finding the spi der still unsubdued, one of the doctors asked for a hypodermic syringe. Five were instantly proffered. An icy arrow penetrated seemingly to the seat of the gray matter still, without effect upon the spider, whose prenicioua re tivity caused me indescribable agony. " 'Ether?' cheerfully returned the doctor who was attending me. 'Why, of course. Brown fetch out your ether bottle.' And if Brown did not produce from the depths of his waistcoat pocket a small bottle ot ether may I be In stantly retired from the presidency of our society: It transpired later that Brown was a physician with an alien hobby entomology and carried ether with him everywhere to anaesthetize his specimens. "In an instant relief came such re lief as only one who has passed through an experience like mine can appreciate. "The rest of the story Is soon told. When I gathered myself together, the six doctors presented themselves to me with due formality. They dined that night at our camp on my elk. "Jack was thoroughly ashamed of me. What did the elk and bear matter with the memory of the spider fresh in our minds? "No, decidedly," Mrs. Jack repeats as the maid fetches her a second cup of tea, "I shall never dare to look a tiger In the face after my Waterloo on the Big Muddy. It would have been a pleasing legend for my tombstone, this: "One To whom the forests were an open beok , SVho joined to Diana's daring the skill of her spear, Lies here. Slain by a bug In her ear." San Francisco Argonaut. Watched as Well as Prayed. Parson Adams, minister in Lunen burg for over thirty-five years, at one time stopped to pass the night at a friend's house. The clergyman was both tired and hungry. It was pro posed to have prayers at once, and then supper, after which the minister could go directly, to his bed. To this he agreed, and the family were called to gether. The supper was to consist mainly of Indian cakes, which were set to br ,'ie on platters in front of the fire. The parson's seat was opposite the kit chen door. The service began, but in a moment Parson Adams saw that one of the cakes had fallen down and was burning. He paused and looked toward his hostess, who seemed unconscious of any culinary crisis. "Mrs. Blank," he said, gravely, "we are told to watch as well as to pray. I cannot help seeing that one of those excellent cakes is burning. I will thank you to attend to it." The cake was rescueu, and Parson Adams resumed his Scripture reading with an easy mind. A Stranee llnttle. A Camden (Del.) farmers 4ell3 a story of a queer combat between a swarm of flies and mosquitoes over the possession of a horse. The animal was grazing in a meadow when a huge cloud of mosquitoes surrounded it. The horse became frantic and rushed around the field, wnen a swarm of the big flies attacked it. Then the cloud of mosquitoes and flies became mixed and the air was niled with a stranga noise, but every moment some mosqui toes or flics were seen to drop to the earth. The horse was covered with blood, the mosquitoes abandoning their orey to the flies. New York Tribune. Kuilway lluildintr.

Kite flying has become very popular at Nunda, A number of business men have become interested, and one man, Prof. W. M. Robinson, formerl princi pal of Nunda High school, brought his five foot flyer into a novel service re cently, which has attracted a great deal of attention. The professor wras at the Ridge, seven miles from the village. He had in addition to his kite, a bicy cle, and he wished to try the experi ment of making the kite pull him home. The road Is perfectly straight for the entire seven miles, it being the state road, so the professor put the kite in, the air and mounted his wheel. A strong south wind was blowing and the wheel started. The professor took his feet from the pedals and let the machine go. Such a ride as he had, he had never before experienced. Prof. Cooley's flying machine was not "in it" with Professor Robinson and his kite wheeling novelty. Not an acci dent occurred on the whole trip whicli was made in fast time. Ge.ieseo Re publican.
