I wonder if the, American people have
lost the art of beins leisurely? Has the
wild scramble and rush of business life
entered to completely into their make-up
that it permeates their very being and
car.not be thrown aside without rlentroy
In themselves? The season Is ut hand
whkh .-ecnis to prove auch a sad state
p: affairs. Presumably we go to the thea
ter for enjoyment, and one would think
if ever we would take our ease and for
or.ee cast aside all sue-tion of business
and its methods it would be then. But
o:.e might think the most important move
tf our life on 'Change waited around the
c Miner and would be gone a minute after
the curtain went down. Before the play
Is finished hats are grabbed, opera glasses
clicked into their ca.es. and while the
licru and heroine are yet saying their
In.-t .sentences there is a mad rush for
the door as if one's very life depended on
l.iiig the rirst out. It has become a
Perfect 1 madness with 113. this effort to
escape at the ea: liest moment from the
puce w here we have presumably been en
j ).vipg ourselves. It can be nothing but
midlife, and it certainly is most an
noying to those not similarly afflicted
U ho lias not been exasperated almost
l-iyond endurance to have the picture
w hich the arti?ts on the "stage have been
gradually painting before our eyes spoiled
i:i it.s completion by rustling programmes
v hirers, the adjusting of wraps, the fix
ir g of headgear, and. finally, the hasty
d.parture of half of the audience before the
l.i.st words are spoken?
We take our pleasures as bard as we
do everything else. There is more than
one car to get us home safely, and a dif
lerence of two minutes cannot possibly
rr.uke much difference to us. But it makes
i!l the difference in the world In the ef
lcct of such conduct on the actors them
selves and upon any strangers that may
Lo within our gates. For it is most de
cidedly ill bred. It Is u positive crime
igainst every rthie of -good taste and
fe'-ntle breeding. It is an affront to the
i.;jktr ot tii piay and to the men and
women players, and it is disrespectful to
one's fejlow-creatures la the audience who
may want to keep their Wüstems to the
last and hear the rinal amen. One's own
self-re.-pe t should likewise forbia such
conduct, and Jt is surely only this mad
love of haste in our blood that makes us
guilty of such conduct. The season is
lefore us when it is only too probable
it will be ugain Ftrongly In evidence. Can
not u reform be started in this direction?.
Wedding Then nml nw,
,Nw York Sun.
The wedding of the olden time what a
different thing it was from the wedding
cf to-day! Then the function wj. a pa
ternal, private, alrr.os: a sacred affair,
l.'nder promij-e of strict secrecy, the bride
before the ceremony showed her wedding
frock to a few favored pirl friends. To all
others, even the bridegroom. It was kept
& profound mystery. Her mother and her
modiste were the only persons in the world
that knew about the trousseau, and neither
of them would have dreamed of violating
the confidence the mother because the
mothers of that day believed in quiet, un
ostentatious weddings; the modiste because
she knew that her business reputation de
pended upon lt.. Nowadays the bride-to-be
has a special presa agent, to whom she
pays a large salary, to advertise her trous
seau down to its most intimate detail. She
engages him usually before the trousseau
itself id ordered long before the brides
maids are selected or the florist and caterer
secured. This press agent docs his work
well, ile scatters broadcast through as
many newspaper offices as the bride's
prominence makes advisable circulars an
nouncing the approaching exhibition of the
trousseau at such and such a place and
j;t such and such a time. This, accord
ing to the circulars. Is the special "press
view" of the trousseau; "press artists" to
sketch and photograph it will be admitted
at such and such another hour. Should
the newspapers fail to nibble at this tempt
ing bait of a personal Inspection of the
trousseau. Its full description Is sent later.
Kvery item of clothing is graphically de
tailed. Nothing is left to the imagination.
Nor is this all. The wily press agent, who
Is out for all he can get, manages to ring
into his account of the clothes .1 number
of barefaced advertisements of various
manufacturers and establishments. For
each of these, of course, he gets just so
much more money. It is a great calling
that of wedding press agent, and with
skill and foresight much can be made out
of it. But he would have had hard work
It Value Discovered Ilnrfnsr Aliseuce
Rev. J. B. Ley. pastor of the First M. K.
Church, South Tampa, Fla. had an inter

compelled to leave on account of the yel

eral things had led me to believe that my
troubles were largely due to improper nu

me a good opportunity . to try the new
food, for it is perfectly cooked and there
fere required no work on my part.
"i?o I began to make two meal3 a day,
supper and breakfast, on Grape-Nuts and
cream or milk, and had nothing else. I
contlned myself to the proper allowance,
not overeating. The improvement was
marked, almost from the first-my diges

restful, and I began to gain flesh. I could
