Ac cordingly, whon tho guest was asked It sho would have some, sho hesitntod a moment and snld no. Whoreupon her ontortnlnor flushed with anger at tho contretemps, and, rising from her seat, deliberately poured tho contents of tho chocolate pot out of tho window.

Immediately, ns if it wero n matter of courso, tho host picked up tho salad and threw it. dUh and all, out through tho window into tho garden. "It's a way wo havo horo." ho re marked calmly. Nobody said anything for qulto five minutes afterward, but tho ex tromo amiability exhibited by the lios toss for tho rest of tho ovoning, led tho visitor to imnglno that tho lesson thus given was not without a certain domestic usefulness.

Expo- riauoc The Infant Kins nn- How Ho Appears Tha Queen nnd the Conr I recall a treat while we wore in Madrid last spring, writes Kato Carl to tho Momohls Appeal-Avalanche. On Holy Thursday of each yoar tho regnant sovoroign of Spain washos tho foot of twolvo beggars gathorod from tho streots In commomoration of our Lord's suppor and the washing of tho dlselplos' feet This custom was bo gun in tho thirteenth contury by King fcordlnaiid, who was so pious that ho was callod St. Ferdinand, and it has been kept Up to the present day. I Was very anxious to see it, but was told on arrival lit Madrid that It was hoxt to impossible to got cards for It, but I got them through tho Amorican consul, who had boen there two years and hadn't beon able to see it. Tho oeromony began by a high mass in tho Royal chapet whon tho qucon rognnnt, old Queen Isabella, all tho royal in fantas and nil tho Spanish grandees took part in tho mass, which was a most joyous affair. Grand orchostral music, myriads of candlos, splondldly robod priests, gorgoously colored car dinals, all lending thoir quota to tho brilliant sceno. Tho chnpol itself, gllttorlng with gold and hung with splendid tapestries, was a fitting back ground to nil. Aftor tho mass tho quoon. tho arch bishop, priosts nnd doacons, followed by tho infantas and grandees, proceed ed into tho banqueting hall whero tho twolvo beggars Wore seated all on ono sldo of tho narrow deal tablo. Tho queon herself laid tho tablo and served them all with meat nnd drink, after ward removing tho dlshos and food and tablecloth, all this in tho most magnificent of tollots and fairly blaz ing with diamonds. All tho splendidly attired infantas, gorgeously uniformed grandcos, diplomatists, ambassadors and invited guosts standing, while tho beggars nlono remained boated. Tho performance is now merely a form, as tho queen only goes through tho semblance of washing thoir fcot (their shoes not oven being removed), and the beggars touch nothing to eat that tho queen serves, but curry it off in great hampers to soil each for as much as 200 or $800. After thoy are sorved tho archbish op blessos each one of tho beggars and gives him a purso of gold. Tho boggars aro chosen for tholr oxomplary llvos, being not taken by chanco, and aro brought to the pulnco early in the morning nnd washed, shaved and dressed in clean and wholo clothes, and afterward given a bounti ful monl in tho sorvants' quarters. This accounts for tholr not eating when tho queen serves them, though I supposo tho poor creatures couldn't got down a mouthful with tho queen and all tho august ossomblago stand ing and watching them. Thoy nro glad enough to bo ablo to tako away what tho queen gives thorn (tho rich est delicacies, such ns aro prepared forthoioyal table, with flno wines), to sell to tho highest bidder on leav ing tho palace. Tho purso each ro- colvos contains ?100. Tho palaco Itself wo couldn't havo scon if wo hadn't soon this. The dressing and jowols wore perfectly magnificent. Tho queen woro many diamonds, but tho other ladles, tho Infantas, woro all sorts of precious stones. One had a diadem of emor alds that woro worth a quoon's ran som. Tho queen regent Is an Aus trian, and ono would understand what a display thero must havo been who had scon tho gems at Vienna. Tho llttlo king and his sisters, tho young Infantas, wero not present at tho ceremony, as they avoid ns much as posslblo all oxcttcment for tho young people and tholr only outings aro drives in tho parks and rambles in tho royal gardons. Tho little king, who is a jolly-looking llttlo follow, with blondo curls and blue eyes, sn lutes any ono who bows to him, as do his sisters when thoy aro out driving. Ho looks rather dohcato, unfortunately, tho poor little man. To Straighten the Shoulder. A contemporary says that thoso who havo round shoulders may make them solves shapely and healthy if thoy will but bestow a llttlo trouble and perse verance on tho oroccss. This consists in going through tho simple and easily performod process of raising ono's self upon tho toes loisuroly inn perpendic ular position sovcral times a day. A perfectly upright position must bo taken, with tho hools togother and thq toos at an nnglo of forty-five de grees. Tho arms must bo dropped lifelessly by tho sldo, perfectly relaxed; tho chest must bo raUcd to its full muscular capacity, and tho chin will bo drawn in. Tho:'urther instructions aro to slowly riso up on tho balls of tho feet to the greatest posslblo holght, thoroby exercising all tho muscles of tho legs and tho body; then to como into a standing position without sway ing tho body backward out of tho por foct lino.

They ard toported to have been strong and handsome, nnd of ex traordlnary agility of movement of ro markablo courngo and of loyal dispo sition; but thoy showed tho credulity of children and tho slmplo directness of shophords. So tall wero thoy that tho Spaniards speak of them as giants, und tholr strength and enduranco were so great that thoy wero conquered by strntogom, but not force. Thoy ran as fust as horses, and could leap over a polo hold botweon two mon fivo or six feet high; they could climb tho highest mountains and jump tho deepest ra vines. Thoir enduranco as swimmers was bo great that they wero accustomed to swim across tho nlno mile strait bo tween tho Lanceroto and Graclosa; having no boats, tholr mothod of fish ing was to striko tho fish with sticks or catch thom In tholr hands whllo swimming.

Though so strong physically, tho Guanches woro nevertheless a vory gentle race; thoy rarely made war on ono another, nnd whon tho Europeans fell into tholr hands they did not kill them, but sent them to tend sheep in the mountains. So tamo were the birds in this happy land that when tho Span iards first landed thoy cumo and fed out o' thoir hands.

"Sho then turned ovor in bod," con tinued Mr. Williams, "and slopt till night At about nine o'clock in tho ovoning sho awoke sat up in the bod, nnd said: 'Mamma, I was dead, and havo boon in heaven. I saw my llttlo sister Anna there Sho was singing nnd was just as happy as sho could be, and when sho saw mo sho flow to mo and took mo to Jesus.' "Her mothor asked her whero -Jesus was and how Ho looked. -Oh, mam ma, Jesus has fcot and hands, and looks llko any other man. I saw God near Jesus, and Ho was like a man, too. Jesus took sister and mo by tho hand and showed us all through heaven. " 'I can't begin to toll you all I baw In heaven. There were thousands and thousands of angels flying all around mo, and 60on I mot grandma, who Is an angel now, and she kissed mo many times. I saw my uncle too, and I know him ns 60on ns I saw him.' " Mr. Williams says sho has nover seen him on oarth, neither had he ever described hkn to her, but ho declared that she pictured him as ox actly as any ono could by looking at him. "I saw Ethel Brown and had forgot ten all about her until I saw hor. Then 1 romemberod how wo used to piny nnd go to school together at Dor land. I saw millions and millions of people in heaven, but did not see many that I knew. I hen Jesus took me by tho hand and led mo to where I could look down into holl. It seemed to mo that thero wero a great many pooplo In hojl. but I saw only one thore that I know." Daisy told me tho namo of tho woman sho saw, but Mrs. Williams said sho would rather not give tho name as tho woman had died a drunkard's death. Mr. Williams said he told Daisv that sho was surely mistaken, but Dalsv was positive about the matter. Sho also said: "I saw her, and I know it was she Oh. mamma it's an awful place Satan himself was thoro. and called so loud that all tho hollow depths of holl resounded. I tell you I'm not going to go to hell; I'm going to go to hoavon. Jesus told mo I could now go back and tell my folks and everybody I saw what I had seen, and if thoy did not believo me Ho would send down my llttlo sister Anna, and if thoy did not believo her Ho would como Himself. "Papa, do you believe what I havo said? Woll, papa, if you do and also do not swear any more tho Saviour said you could como to heaven, too." Suoh aro tho wonderful words that Daisy said when sho recovered con sciousness, and they wero repeated again and again boforo several wit nesses. She lingered along for a month and It soemed at ono tlmo that sho would recover, but sho died re cently nnd was buried in Oak Hill cemetery. All her relatives and many living In tho neighborhood believo thnt sho actually was dead and camo to llfo again. Arknnsaw Traveler. - Llttlo Oddities.
