That was fodr ni'intha ago. Lottlt
came dnwn tn the siore fretpjently. Of
courso it was a neeexsity that ehesboulu
for sonlelhing was always needed at Ihe

Certainly John was fnr loo iuodel !c

But he had not neglected his opporlu

up her etigar nr lolled up her liningcam

sene can and uiolas?es barrcl, and Loltie
had nnl been prudiohly backward in re

very good fiipnda indeed.
The one blot on this extrcniely pleas

There is good reason for the beliel
that the convention of Reading railroad

the fielght tram men and coal handlers
is very far from being a repreeentatlve
body. It probablv contains, as eucb
conventlons almost always do, the hot-
lieaded and loose tnngued members ot
the labor organizations along the line ol

gates. not becauae of their eound ludg-
ment and acquaintance with their fellow

Witb all their boastincs it would seeni
tbat tbe chiefs of the Reailing strike are
doomed to a bitier dtsappointment. The
rank and f ile of their order are no long

against a stnke. and diseam the vast
army of the unemployed eager to step
into their places if they leavethem. As
a last resort the 30.000 Reading miuere
may be called on to join tbe strike, and
if thev obev the order serious embarass

The daughter of a prominent New
Y'ork physiclan was at ecbool in a soutii
German city, where Ihe summer often
has days r,8 wnrm as aro experienced
with us. One lorrid Sunday in church
the young girl tooU her fan from her
pocket and eought relief by using it. To
her ustonishment tbe was promptly ad
inonished by tbe verger to close the fan.
and return lt to her pocket. In extreme
mortiflcatiou she put up the offending
object and suftVred until tbeclose of the
long service. On reuching tbe ecbool
she was suninioned before thc prlncipal.
who addressed her thus :
'Miss , from your father's bigli
rank in his profcssi'in and tho etatus of
your family, I was led to believe tbat
you were in every repect well bred and
had due reverence for the house of (Jod.
I am, therefore. both aetonished and
mortifled to leam that you carried n fan
lo church and fanned j'ourself. Do you
not know that such a proceedlng is un-
becoonng to a lady nud a cnristian
would you place the church on a par
wiih the theaire ? Never has so 'great a
breach of mannetaoccurred in my school
and I must beg you never to repeat the
olfence.'
The astouiahed malden told the
wounded dame tliat lu her country fans
were always used in church and she
could not know that it was iniproper to
use them in Germany.
'Is it posaiDie tnat you Americans tan
in church ? I had always supposed you
lo be a religious people. Very singular
ideas vou raust have about religion. As
you seem to besincere I will pardon this
cffence and make no further mention of
it, But, my dear girl, never forget that
it is really dreadful to uie a fan in b
German church.' Foreign Letter.

prefers it that way : but let the agree
ment bc made in writing.
