THE ENGAGEMENT RNG3. Peculiar Ways In Which It Cans~, a Young WVoman to Act. Did onu ever have a chance to ob serve unobserved, a young wonll::' conduol t toward her newly acquired en gage: en.t ring? It feels so strange upon her hand that she annot t refrain from eyxamliin ilg it a dozen times an hour. alw:ye. however, on the sly. On the first night she sits up an hour later than u;sual to admire it bhldly in the seclusion of her own apartment. A frequent kiss is ad ministered to the shining band and ito glittering gem, and during the night she dreams that it has fallen Into a stream and awakes clutching the fin ger to assure herself that the precious pledge is still secure. Then, on the following day, she wears it only in secret, taking care to trans fer it to her pocket at table and when in the company of intimates, but olace her among strangers or among casual acquaintances who cannot be inquisi tive, and how bravely will she flaunt the token before their eyes, as one who should say: "I may not he the loveliest creature in the world. but you will observe that I have landed my fish." Gradually it assumes its place in her daily life, and her blushes grow less violent with each succeeding explana tion of its significance and each ex travagant description of its donor's at tributes. But before it finally becomes n part of herself, as it were, she must, of course, leave it a dozen timnes at least upon the washstand and suffer in consequence a dozen violent attacks of palpitation of the heart until it is re covered.-London Answers. THEY DYE THEIR SCALPS, For Beanty After the Head Ht.s Bern Sbhaved Perfectly Smooth. A French explorer has discovered the vainest people in the world. By a curious coincidence they happen to be also the ugliest. They are the Pa houins, a savage tribe of the western coast of Africa. The main occupation of these people is the adornment of their persons. As the Pahounin's cloth nlg is of so light a character as not to incommode him he bestows a good share of his thought upon the adorn ment of his body, which he tattoos in elaborate designs done in red or blue. Or aýmore fanciful effect is obtained by tattooing in relief by injecting un derneath the skin the juice of a plant which produces a permanent swelling. Sometimes the face and body are also tinted with a dye, red being the color most in demand. The same methods are used in adorn ing the face, especial attention being given to the nose. Many of the Pa houins after tattooing or painting their noses pierce them with long, slender bones. Others after piercing the nose attach to it a string of colored pearls. Both men and women concentrate their efforts on their hair. Their inge nuity, which is shown in the construc tion of scores of different headdresses of bone and metal for the men of the tribe, chiefly the warriors, is illustrated in a far greater degree by the coiffures of the women. The extreme of simplicity in the Pa houin women's method in making themselves beautiful is to shave the head till it is smooth and round as e ball and then to color it with a dye. Cincinnati Enquirer. To remove a troublesome corn or bun ion: First soak the corn or bunion in warm water to soften it, then pare it down as closely as possible without drawing blood and apply Chamberlain's Pain Balm twice daily, rubbing vigor ously for five minut3s at each applica tion. A corn plaster should be worn for a few days, to protect it from the shoe. As a general liniment for sprains, bruises, lameness and rheumatism, Pain Balm is unequaled. For sale by M. E.

Louis years ago was witnessed on the street and among the broker,' offices late yesterday afternoon, which was dul to an otficial announcement from the (iranite-Bimetallic Mining Coitmpany' s otlice- to the effect that a teleciram had been received from the mine stat ng that a strike had been made in the 1,500-foot levet, south crosscut, on the Bimetallic property, of three feet of ore running 75 ounces to the ton. When this news be came known the street became wildly excited and there was such a scramble on the part of brokers to get hold of the stock.that the market which had closed on the regular board at $2.424 bid, after selling at $2.40, jumped up 25c at a time to $3 per share, at which, it is claimed, there was large sales in Jots of 500 and 1,000 shares. Later $3.0212 was bid and .3.10 asked. Just how many shares were handled during the excitement could not be learned, but it is said there were a great many.-St. Louis Republic. Dec. 12th. Meeting of the City Fathers. The city council held an interesting session last Monday evening. The con tract for supulying the city with street lights was awarded the Philipsburg Granite Electric Light Co. for a period of three years. The printing contract was awarded The Philipsburg Mail. Among other business transacted the most important was.that relating to the quarantine station. The present build ings are old and not suitable for the re ception of patients. In neighboring counties a good many cases of smallpox are reported and the necessity of pro. viding quarters suitable for a detention hospital by the city is apparent. No one knows how soon the city will have a case or more of the disease on hand, and the council proposes to be prepared fur such emergencies. After discussing the matter the council decided to build a new house at the quarantine grounds to be used as a hospital. The clerk was in structed to advertise for bids for the con struction of such a building. EDITORIAL BREVITIES, It doesn't seem to make much differ ence whether Krueger is given the glad hand or the Klondike fist-he never gets anytbing else. The census of "domestic animals not on farms" in the United States is plain ly inaccurate. It puts several cities down as having only one or two asses. It is to be hoped that Mr. Cramp has made certain of the pay for that cruiser. Else the United States may have tosend a battleship to collect that as well as the original missionary indemnity. The fuss made in Germany over the failure of the Emperor to receive Krueger indicates that some of the people of that country fail to note when their ruler does a nice diplomatic turn. William is be ing abused for his inconsistency, but his defenders may cheerfully point to the acquisition of Samoa and a close under standing with Great Britain as the price of the abandonment of his position on the subject of the status of the Trans vaal republic.
