a Why Do Women
c J M
Have the Blues More Than Men ?
Are not women naturally as light-hearted, brave, and hope
Yes; but woman's organism is different from man's.
Women in perfect or good health are rarely victims of this
Women nearly monopolize the blues, because their peculiar
ailments promote them.
When the female organs fail to perform their functions
properly, when the dreaded female complaints appear, there is
shown nervousness, sleeplessness, faintness, backache, headache,
bearing down pains, etc., causing the dreaded " let-me-alone"
and "all-gone ' feelings.
When the woman does not understand what the matter is,
and her doctor can not or will not tell her, she grows morose
and melanchol3r ; that's the blues.

I'nfortnnate Predicament of a
Man at the Theater.
lie was such a very fat. man that the
entire audience turn-d around to hnik
at him when lie came into the theater
in the midilk- of the first act and took
his sect in aa orchestra chair. He wore
his last year's fall overcoat, says tbe
1'hilailelpbia Record, which was light
for him. He had evidently taken on
flesh during the year. He paid no at
tention to tb-1 interest bis ncighliors
evinced in him, but sat down and at
once became ahsorlied in the piay. lie
grew warm, and with bis eyes still
glued to the stage, be arose anil shed
his overcoat. The iieoplc around him
legau to titter, am! finally to bniirb
very audibly. The fat man reali.cd at
length that the s-oie were latighiiigat
him. Then he not iced, w it h great cou
fusiou, that he was in bis sbirtsleees.
His sack coat bad come off with thi
ol her. He put them ltoth on again ami
tried to peel off the overcoat, but it
wouldn't, move a liltle bit. He gave a
deser:ite tug and wriggled his fat
shoulders, and the next moment be was
in his shirtsleeves again, "ln-t out!"
"Sit down!" "Kip it off!" cried the
ieople lebind him, Imt the fa man ti ied
again, and with the assistance of two
men in the s-ats Whimi him he finally
managed to shed bis overcoat.

that tbe carriages they ride in are very

of all their wheels are lent and made
intwojKirts the framework of coaches
and heavy carriages is nearly all mad,
of lent stock, and not only lietter made,
but more cheaply and tbe frames of

Sad Mistake Made by a Short-sighted
Bishop in Kngland.
There is a bat story in v hich a well
known bishop and a la'dv-diH cased
marquis played leaditiil jiarts. The mar
quis, w ho ma tried a t,aiet y chorus girl,
and. general!;- ss-aking, lived up to tbe
high s'ainlartl of bis marriage life, was
accustomed to wear a particular style

niost men. Ore day, says the St. James
liudg-t. be went into hi-, batmal.er's
in Piccadilly and akcd for a new one to

aud walked down to the far cud of the
shop to p-ive tbe reqtiisite instructions,
lea imr 1 he bat less marquis stamling mi
t he shop. At this moment there entered
the s.iort-sii; hted bishop of X, also in
want of a new headgear. He saw oiilv
a small man. w bo misrbt have juissed "r
a shopkeeja'e, standing starin": at him.
So he took bis -culiar hat off bis bead
and went up to him. "lo you think,

The population of France in 1-01 was
S,.14.1.1t, and of (irc-at I'.ritaiii .".7,-,-15:i,
or a difference of only alstuf half a
million in favor of France. It is now
aunotineed that the census to In- t.;ken
1 be coming year will show that t lie 0
ulation of (ireat Kritaiu is the greater.
The reason for this reversal of relation
is t lie small birt h rate of France and t tie
unusually largo one in tireat Britain.
There bas Wen no emigration of conse
quence into tbe latter country, and
France lias bst but little by emigration,
so that the a'Mve cause accounts for the
relative British increase of over l.OOO.
