Why Does a A Fellow Wet Yellow t
Yon needn't mail an answer to this
simple conundrum. We know that yon
know that a fellow we nse the term in
no offensive sense is yellow because he
is bilious. In other words, his liver has
got out of order, his bowels have become
constipated. His skin and eyeballs as
sume (a most unwarrantable assumption)
s saffron tinge, his tongne puts on a ooat
of fur, even in the summer time; beneath
his right shoulder blade and ribs twinges
remind him that a very restless imp is in
their immediate vicinity. Now, if this hap
less individual will simply procure nndnee

be all right shortly. Constipation, bilious

PERHAPS YOU KNOW HER.
If there's any one should ask you
Who I'm loving on the sly,
Though I never dare to tell her
Just because I know not why,
You can easily determine
By the glances of my eye.
If you know the sweetest maiden
In the widest world today,
Who has not an affectation
As she walks along your way,
Do not hesitate a minute
She's the lady of my lay.
In the distant delta country
There's a soil germed of the heat,
And the sugar cane in springtime
Forms a picture all replete.
And 'tis there my love was nurtured,
Where the maiden grew so sweet.
I've a fancy that the rosebud,
Though it blooms but one brief hour,
Dearer is to many mortals
Than the most enduring power,
But the merely sweetest maiden
Is a far more preoioos dower.

A TEST OF LOVE,
"I assure you, mother, that I do not
want to marry yet," said Antoinette to
Mme. Odiot. "I am so happy with your
self, but should I enjoy the same happi
ness, the same peace and the same content'
nient when I change your fireside for an
other? I doubt it I No, no, I have plenty
of time yet, I am only 18 years of age.
While I am much honored by the attention
of M. le Baron de MeriUao I repeat that
I must refuse him."
"My dear child," replied Mme. Odiot,
"you should rcfloct that one of these days
you will lose me. I have been suffering
for a long time, and very little would suf
fice to carry me off. You will then find
yourself without support, slnoe your dear
father is gone, and a husband la the nat
ural support of a young girl when she hat
lost her parents. Baron JMerlllao is a very
estimable young man. You will probably
never get suoh another offer. He is enor
mously rich, and he has a title and is the
only son of parents who will adore and
worship you as if you were their own ohlld.
It would surely be madness to persist in a
refusal that has no basis. The baron is a
handsome oavaller, and his manners art
of the best. What more can you wish?"
Then you know him?" asked Antoi
nette, with surprise.
"Without doubt."
"Yet I have never seen him here," per
sisted the girl.
No, he has never been here, but I have
met him several times at the house of Mme.
de Saverny, where you would never accom
pany me, under the pretext that she dis
pleased you, and it was Mme. de Saverny
who spoke to me of the baron as a man
who would be suitable for you, from every
point of view."
I shall like Mme. de Saverny still less
now, " exclaimed the girl. "What busi
ness is it of hers? If she is so anxious to
get M. de MeriUao married, let her take
him herself. She is a widow."
You are foolish, ma bonne oherie. M.
de MeriUao is 95 years old and Mme. dt
Saverny is 50. She might be his mother.
But you should not get angry. One would
almost think that you had some other
reason JJian the one you give so vehement
ly for refusing M. de MeriUao."
"Some other reason," stammered An
toinette, lowering her eyes, while a pretty
little nuah came into her cheeks.
Mme. Odiot watched her smilingly, and
several minutes passed in silence.
Antoinette took up her sewing again
and being aware no doubt that her moth
er's eyes were fixed upon her presently rost
and went over to the piano. Mme. Odiot
stopped her as she went.
"We will settle the matter onoe for all,
she said, "never to return to it. The rea
son you refuso M. de MeriUao is because
you don't want to marry. Is it not?"
"Mais oui, maman," said Antoinette in
a voioe that nevertheless lacked the ring
ol sincerity.
"So that no matter who olso may corns
to me to ask your hand I may tell him no
and send him about his business?"
"Oh I I didn't Bay that perhaps later
when 1 am older If the if I liked him,"
stammoreu the young girl, much embar
rassed. "So be itl Wo will talk of something
else. For instance, my dear nephew Gas
ton has now been with us for three weeks
and has nearly finished his picture. He
has been very busy making somo skotohos
in the Woods for another one ho has in
view. I think he is with your uncle al
this moment. Let us go across and
him I mean my brother. He has not
been very well of late. " .
"Oh, no, mother; my uncle is quite
well again," said Antoinette quickly.
"All, you have somo news about him?"
Antoinette bit her lips. Her answer had
supped out too quickly.
"The gardener told me," she added
naively.
Mine. Odiot pretended not to notice her
daughter's embarrassment.
"Will you come with me?. I am going
at onoe. As he is your guardian I ought
to let him know at once of your decision
with regard toM. de MeriUao, for he knew
all about him."
"Oh, my uncle know?"
"Yes."
"And he approved?"
"Yes."
"Then Gaston knew that it was pro
posed I should marry this baron?"
"Perhops." -
"But he has said nothing to me about
Itl"
"I thought you had not seen him I"
"Oh, yes that Is oh, no I I have not,"
replied the girl, turning her face away in
her confusion over her little fibs with
which she was inexperienced. -
"Let us go. Are you coming?"
Mme. Odiot turned away to hide a smile.
"Is my presence very necessary?" the
young girl asked. Then the added: "I
think that my uncle and yourself will be
able to talk more at your ease If I go away;
besides my uncle will question me, and I
shan't know how to answer him."
"That is quite simple. You will an.
swsr him Just as you answered met"
"You are making fun of me, mother,'
replied Antoinette peevishly.
"Not the least In the worldl It Is not
quite natural that you should refuse a
matoh so agreeable to your mother and
your tutor for so plausible a reason. You
do not want to get married. But here we
are talking again on this subject, whioh
we had agreed to leave alone I It was you
that started it again, you must notice I"
"Oh, now, mother, you make me ory I"
' And Antoinette burst into tears and
threw herself upon her mother's neck.
" Why do you ory, ma mlgnonnef Then
Is surely no cause for tears in our conver
sation." At this moment a servant girl entered
the room and announced that the Baron
de MerUlao and his son were waiting outside.
"M. le Baron da MeriUao and his son,"
the said.
Then she withdrew. Antoinette hur
riedly made up her mind to oonoeal her
self, when there appeared upon the thresh
old of the room her unole and Gaston.
She stood gaping at them without moving
and examined them.
" What does this mean?" she stammered,
turning toward her mother.
"Ask your unole and Gaston himself,"
replied Mme. Odiot.
. " T. meant, ' ' auiii Vf T.amho 1
, " """"' " '
OUSly, "that I oome as your guardian to
MerUlao."
"But the announcement just mode by
Justine?" interrupted Antoinette, who
oould not understand why the baron and
bis father did not make their appearance
and why her uncle made this request,
when they were evidently both waiting in
tne next room.
Her interrogating glances passed from
her mother to M. Lambert and Gaston,
the latter of whom appeared a little dis
turbed and nervous In spite of his smiling
face. Antoinette had dried her tears, but
her eyes were still red and swollen from
crying.
Gaston noticed this.
"You have been orytng, Antoinette?" he
asked her while M. Lambert and Mme.
Odiot stood apart and conversed in low
tones.
"Yes," she replied to her oousln't ques
tion.
"Why?"
"I cannot tell you."
"Oh," was all he said.
"Well, Antoinette," Interrupted M.
Lambert," you have given me no answer."
"Mother has already spoken to me about
this gentleman, uncle, and and"
"And?" questioned Gaston's father.
"And" continued Antoinette, playing
nervously with a skein of wool she held in
her hands.
"WeU?" Insisted M. Lambert. "Is it
difficult to say?"
Gaston made a step in the direction of
the young girl as though to encourage her.
"Tell thorn, mother, what I answered
you," murmured the poor girl. Gaston's
attitude was torture to her.
"WeU," began Mme. Odiot, exchanging
a glance with her brother, "my daughter
does not wish to got married!"
Gaston made another step toward An
toinette and seized her hand.
"Not even with me?" he asked, with a
trembling voice.
"With you?" cried the young girl, blush
ing and growing pale by turns.
" Yes, with me, for I love you I Do you
not know It?"
"I was sure of It," replied M. Lambert,
with a wink.
' ' For goodness sake, explain yourselves I '
exclaimed Antoinette, looking at all of
them in turn.
"It Is easy to explain," said Gaston. "I
thought I had guessed your love for me,
and I told my father, confessing my love
for you at tho same time. He and your
mothor talked It over and laid this trap to
see if your love was strong enough to resist
a rich and tilted lover."
"Oh, Gaston I and you have fallen into
the trap?"
" Yes, petite couslne, for I, too, wanted
to feel quite sure that I was being loved for
myself alone. Now I know and can no
longer doubt, can I? You will be my wife,
won't you?"
"But she has not said so," Interrupted
Mme. Odiot mischievously, without giving
her daughter time to reply, and having
hard work herself to keep a serious faoe.
" Yes, I have, mother, " orled Antoinette,
with delightful simplicity.
"Ah, Antoinette! Antoinette! Thank
you, my darling little cousin," exclaim
Gaston, mad with joy.
The young girl had flung herself upon
her mother's neck and embraced her with
all her heart.
"Naughty mother!" she murmured in
her ear m she kissed her.
" You are orying still?" asked Mme.
Odiot happily.
un, no, onere petite mere. I am
laughing now!"
And, turning her radiant fuco toward
her uucle and cousin she placed her hand
in that of Gaston and allowed him to draw
her to his shoulder In a warm embrace.

house and keep him there threo or four
days, snipping and cutting and occupying
an tne oouiiortaoie rooms, while she huun
around on the outskirts, took her meals
between hawk and buzzard, and just lived
by the skin of her tooth?"
"You forgot," interposed I, "that your
wife does this from motives of economy."
"I don't know why I should forget it,"
he retorted hoarsely, "for she hammers it
at mo morning, noon and night. But I de
ny tho economical part of it. By tho time
the dressmaker has had her pay and her
-threo or four meals it comes to about the
same thing as would the bill of a compe
tent party who does the work outside.

are saved, look at the loss in other ways.
"If I ask my wife to go out for a walk
or to road a letter, or to listen to one that
I've written, she wlU say, 'I can't now,
for I've got to help Mrs. galloon these

"There is no such thing asgallooning
braids," said I severely. "You are talking
nonsense."
"Well, It's something Just as absurd, "
ho replied, "and I am tired of it. We can't
havo any conversation at meals, and my
wife works as hard as the other woman
and gets a nervous fit from trying things
on; so altogether I object." New York

Farmer Jones' Whisky Spring.
Tho discovery of an alleged spring of
pure rye whisky on the farm of Silas Jones,
near Smlthton, Westmoreland county, has
created Intense exoltiment among the peo
ple of that place. Several days ago Farmer
Jonos, while digging a ditoh, came upon
an oui wen. He struck a ledge of soft sand
stone, and from a orevioe in its side come
drops of whisky. To make sure of It the
farmer tasted the liquid and pronounced It
a fair quality of barleycorn. After arrang
ing to run the drippings into a cask he
closed up the well in order to keep the
discovery seoret. Many think the whisky
comes from a storage vault of an old dis
tillery that probably stood where Jones
began digging. The oldest Inhabitant does
not remember tuoh a distillery. Barrels of
whisky were probably burled In the hill
side and forgotten. Now that the casks
ore decaying, the contents are oozing out
through the hill. Philadelphia Ledger.

soon failed, and he became too ill to do
much manual work. In this emergenoy
his sister, Miss Cornelia Walter, acted
as his amanuensis. When he died, Miss
Walter was engaged to take his place.
This was before the time that woman's
rights were muoh talked of. The Tran
script had a peculiar tea table sphere,
and Miss Walter successfully fitted into
it. The paper had not a wide general
scope, though there was something like
a digest of the more important news of
the day in it, which Miss Walter pre
pared, and she also provided what was
thought necessary of the local news of
Boston with the aid of one reporter, her
sole assistant. She edited The Transcript

Flnoky Mils Peck.
Women are climbing these days in
more ways than one, it seems. A Miss
Peck, who is called "a scholarly young
woman," or rovidenco, is going to at
tempt to climb the Matterhorn this
summer. While studying in Athens
some years ago Miss Peck ascended Hy
mettus and Pentlicus, and was so de
lighted with the experience that she has
been an advocate of high climbing ever
since. In fact, her enthusiasm led her
during a later trip to the Pacifio coast to
climb Mount Shasta, a distance of 18,
000 feet. The Matterhorn is a very dif
ficult peak to climb. Edward Whymper,
the famous mountain climber.after eight
unsuccessful attempts was the first to
climb it, in 1805, but the occasion itself
was a very tragic one, as four of his
companions by the misstep of one fell
4,000 feet down the precipice and were
dashed to pieces. It is to be hoped that
Miss Peck will make her perilous jour
ney in safety if for no other reason than
that she carries a vast deal of erudition
in that head which she takes skyward.
She has been professor of Latin in Smith
oollege and has spoken on art and ar
chaeology before the National Geograph
ical society, the American Geographical
society and many colleges, institutes and
clnbs.
A Widow's Mournlnt;.
A widow who wishes to be properly
gowned cnooses the material known as
eudora cloth, which is really the finest
brand of hdnrietta, and as it can be got
in different weights is adapted to all
seasons, writes Isabel A. Mallou in an
article on "Mourning and Its Usages"
in The Ladies' Home Journal. Of course
the jet black is chosen, for what is
known as "blue black" when trimmed
with crape looks almost like navy blue.
A suitable toilet to be worn during the
summer shows a skirt of eudora cloth
made after the received flaring style and
having set in at each side of the front
width two side plaits of crape that ex
tend from the waist to the edge of the
skirt. The bodice is a round draped one
with a high collar of crape and a plait
of crape coming just down the center of
the front in loop fashion, its end being
concealed under a crape belt. The sleeves
are of the cloth and shape in to the
arms, and have for a finish three narrow
folds of crape, while on the outer edge
of each are set six small crape buttons.
The bonnet is a modified Marie Stuart,
made of crape, with dull black strings
and a white widow's cap showing from
under the edge.
SnnVafe In South Carolina,
The patience and perseverance with
which the woman 'I suffrage leaders are
proselytizing are well illustrated by the
fact that even in , such states as South
Carolina and Georgia their campaign
goes on without resting. As fast as any
set of speakers are compelled to return
to their home and domestic duties, their
places are filled by another group, and
every movement, change and conversion
of men or women, the formation of ev
ery club, or olass, is carefully reported
and recorded at the national headquar
ters in Washington, the campaign head
quarters in New York and the press
headquarters in Boston. In this manner
every one interested in the subject can
easily learn the exact condition of affairs
in any portion of the Union up to with
in 80 days. No better working or more
comprehensive political machinery was
ever devised New York Mail and Ex
