Methods In Days When "No Lickin', No Larnin'," Was the Rule. The schoolroom practices of a half century ago aie inciedible to a modern pupil It is. well that they have not been continued, but an account of them by an eyewitness is often amus ing One incident from A. H. Hall's "Old Bradford Schooldays" brings up a teacher who clung to the old prin ciple, "No lickin', no larnin'." Horace Walton, at recess, climbed to the top of the highest nut tree and, losing his hold, fell to the ground. He struck on many of the limbs in his descent The boys were terribly frightened as he struck the ground. Just as we crowded about him to see if he still lived, our faces as white as his, the bell rang for the resumption of &tudies. The last boy in was Walton, and just as he fell rather than sat down in his seat the master shouted. "Come out here instanter!" He gave him a flogging that made the fall from the tree seem the lesser of the two evils A few years ago, meeting Walton for the first time for many jears, he re marked that he well remembered how that master at last succeeded in bring ing th.ngs into routine orde* in the school Each morning as the school assembled this order was observed: "First bell, come to order second bell, attention third bell, lick Walton." WOMEN IN They WALL STREET. Are Good Winners, but Drown Their Losses In Tears. To many brokers women are hoo doos, and some stock exchange houses refuse absolutely to have anything to do with the fair sex. The majority of brokerage firms try their best to keep women's speculative accounts out of their offices Some houses are obliged to take women's accounts as a matter of personal friendship, but they will not open accounts for other women, no matter how well they may be intro duced. Wall street men do not have a high opinion of the average woman's busi ness sense. Most women have an idea that one needs only to get a "tip" from some "insider" in Wall street to be sure of making "barrels of money" for new gowns, hats and jewelry. The dictum of Wall street is that women are good winners, but bad losers. It is difficult to reason about money and business with an angry or weeping woman. Her view of Wall street and all its works suddenly be comes entirely emotional, and only a broker with infinite patience can calm her. Many a time a stock exchange house has taken a woman customer's loss rather than face her tears.Strand Magazine. Heine and Hugo.

'Story of a Pathetic Episode That Was Intertwined With the Tragic Loss With All on Board of the French Torpedo Boat Pluviose. Underlying the tragedy of the loss of the French submarine torpedo boat Pluviose with twenty-seven lives when she was sunk in the bottom of the English channel by a collision with a surface steamship on May 25, 1910, was a piteous episode, involving the death of a beautiful and brilliant young Frenchwoman. The French government suppressed the story so thoroughly that to this day the name of the young woman is not known save to those in paramount authority in the navy, but American naval officers say the fact of the hap pening has become known to other naval men all over the world. The Pluviose and a sister submarine had gone out from the navy yard at Calais about 1 o'clock in the afternoon for a series of maneuvers. She was about two miles from shore and Avas disporting in a series of dives and ris ings to the surface The feat known as "porpoising" was being accom plished with gieat skill, the submaime being entirely responsive to every turn of a directing wheel in her machinery. The act of "porpoising" is an imitation of the action of the porpoise in its leaps above water and prompt disappear ance immediately afterward. In the submarine the maneuver is made for the purpose of scouting, the boat be ing brought toward the surface suffi ciently for its periscope to protrude out of water, when the officer below is en abled to make a general circular sur vey of the water abo\ him. Then the boat dives out of sight In case of war she would have sighted her enemy and be enabled to proceed closely to a bat tleship or cruiser and discharge tor pedoes directly at her foe. In the act of thus coming to the sur face the Pluviose came up directly un der the channel steamship Pas de Ca lais The keel of the Calais struck the submarine and tore a huge hole in her upper casement, a rent fifteen feei. long and two feet wide. Into this the water rushed The submarine stag gered along with her hull just showing above the surface, her engines dis abled, her crew unable to do anything to check the inrush of water. And she went down. She had a crew of twenty-seven men. Commandant Pras was the senior offi cer. There were two other officers. Which one of these three it was whose sweetheart was aboard is not definite ly known to the American naval offi cers, but they declare there is no doubt of the fact. One of the three officers listened to the pleadings of his fiancee that she be allowed to make a trip in the sub marine with him and share with him the peril that his duty so often required him to brave. He must have had a consultation with his brother officers and got their consent to wink at it, for the regulations of the French navy strictly forbid women to make any trips in submarine boats. Perhaps the very fact that it was forbidden, that if she succeeded in making a journey to the bottom of the sea in a submarine she would have enjoyed an experience the like of which no other Frenchwoman might claim, actuated her. But. whatever the condition* that brought it about, the young officer did escort her secretly aboard the Plu viose. She wore a long oilskin coat and sou'wester hat belonging to her sweet heart, which sufficiently disguised her sex to admit of her going aboard with out being challenged by any of the sentries patrolling the quay where the Pluviose lay tethered on the day that she was to make her fatal trip And the girl, smiling over her triumph, climbed down the ladder into the little gasoline filled room and heard the or ders given for the battening down of all the hatches, the firm screwing into places of these coverings and then, perhaps fascinatedly, watched the dial indicator as it told how the Pluviose was sinking deeper and deeper into the sea. Divers who went down after the Pluviose was sunk, carrying below steel cables with which ineffectual at tempts were made with huge derricks above to bring the Pluviose to the sur face, reported that they heard rappings in the interior of the submarine. In any event, when, days later, the Plu viose was raised and tugged into shal low water, none that had been aboard of her was alive. She had filled com pletely with water. As she was raised the water poured from the great gash that had been cut in her steel case ment by the Channel steamship. Once in shallow water it was the work of only a little while to remove the covering of the conning tower. In that tower they found the young offi cer. And dead in his arms, with her own arms tightly clasped around his neck and her young face resting against his breast, they found the young woman.New York World.

In the Metropolitan theater the bouse physician has a sseat given him tor each performance. He is supposed to be there every evening. Naturally there comes a time when the play be gins to pall on turn. One evening not long ago the stage manager of a local playhouse rushed down the aisle to ttoe doctor's seat and whispered: "Come back at once The leading la dy has had an attack." In the lady's dressing room all was confusion. "What'll we do, doc?" cried the stage manager. "Have you poured water on her head?" "Yes. a whole bucket, out of the one that says 'Not to be used except in case of fire."* "Then don't pour any more. 1 fear you have made a fatal mistake. Run out to the drug store and get this filled." When they had run out the lady opened her eyes. "Doc," she gasped. "you're a good fellow, %ain't you? I know you know there's nothing the matter with me. 1 want a day off, and I don't want to go on in this act. Can you fix it?" "I sure can," he answered, wringing her hand sympathetically.

Miss Sarah Bitten was a conspicu ous example of the skill which arm less people sometimes acquire in spite of their affliction. She was miniature painter to Queen Victoria, and her work was widely known for its beau ty and delicacy. She was born without arms, but as a girl, having a great wish to become an artist, she worked earnestly for years until she could paint by holding the brush in her teeth. In 1821, ac cording to the Raja Y.oga Messenger, the judges, without any knowledge of the means she was compelled to use. awarded her the gold medal of the Society of Arts, a prize sought by hundreds of others. M. de Mentholon and Bertram Hiles were other artists who were deprived of the use of their arms. The former had only one foot, which be used to paint with. Mr. Hiles lost both his arms^in an accident, being run over by a street car when he was only eight years old and when he was just beginning to ac quire skill in drawing. He spent two years In patient toil learning to draw holding the pencil in his teeth, at the end of which time he won a first class certificate from a local art school. 200 Yards of Table Linen, regular price $1.25 *A.
