When a woman complains a good deal ot cold feet, it is a sign that she is an old maid. When you take a man's contentment away from him, you can't add it to your own. Compliments may be silly, but that man or woman never lived who did not like them. When you find it hard to keep warm, it is a sign ot old age- We have not been warm for three days. Even those most ambitious to Improve don't like to be always hearing things that are for their own good. The really happy women in the world arc those so situated that they are inde pendent ot a man or a hired girl. Women arc not satisfied now" if invited to a party; they want to be invited to help receive, and spill lemon ice on their slothes. Never make the mistake of saying that you have better clothes at home than you have on, or that you are not as rich as you used to be. X.ovcrs express willingness to go to the ends ot the earth for their girls, and there is no doubt that it anyone gave Ihcm the money, they would go, and leave tticir girls behind them. If a woman wouldselect a husband suited to her disposition as carcfuUy as she matches her gowns to her complexion, there might not be such a short path rrom the marriage altar to the divorce court. There are days in every man's life when he feels lie owes himself a drink, and no unpaid debt causes more uneasiness. V SOCIETY OUT IH FULL FORCE A Charming Reception at the Shore ham Last Evening. Sir. and 3frs. Charles 1?. Joy and 31a jor and 3rrh. John "W. IPowell "Were the Hosts. Tlie reception given at tlic Shorcham .bt evening by Mr. and Mrs. Cliarles F.

The groom's comrades pie sented the pair with a handf omc silver set. Mr. Fraser has secured a pi otracted leave of absence and the couple will make a bridale lour of some ol the Western cities. Willurd's Three Characters. Mr. Willard last evening at the Lafayette gave the third of his trinity ot characters, presenting "The Professor's Love Story," appeaiingas the absent-minded Prof. Good willie. This charming piece of acting is not new here, but it has the qualities ot endurance, and for many limes to come it wilt be welcome. The three characters which Mr. Willard has tliis week given us are each distinct from the other and differentiated with fine touches, which mark them ull as separate gems. In "The Rogue's Comedy" he gae theblufringcharlatanjin "The Middleman" a character part in which deep emotions and dramatic strength were dominant, and i'i "The Professor's Love Story" a sweetly humorous perbonatiou of an absent-minded bookworm. Between Blenkam and Good willie it is hard to name the one which will command permanency. Though much older in his repertoire, Blenkam shnrcs equal favor with Goodwillie, and as ttic memory ot this performance Is more impressive it will stand ,tlio betttcr chance. Mr. Willard returns next year. It will je interesting to see what new play he will bring us. The old plays will not carry a season. All Saw the 3Iutnscopo. Willard Hall was crowded last evening with the press to witness a special exhibi tion of the Mutascope, or Biogiaph, an invention ot an America a, Herman Casler, of Canastola, N. Y. The various pictures shown (through the courtesy of Mr. Whit ing Allen) were by long odds the best ever seen here. The cinematagrnphe has been supplanted by the mutascope, aud the change is truly satisfactory. The lights are much clearer and stronger, and the detailsaresccn to better advantage. Then, too, the scenes depicted are of an every day variety, incidents that we witness right here in Washington, and need but sound and color to make them real. The most thrilling ot all the pictures was the,. Empire State express. It approached with lightning-like rapidity, seemed almost ready to plow its course through the audience. President-elect McKInley was seen pacing up and down his lawn, at Canton. Then there was the New York fire department in full speed in Herald Square, aud the Whirlpool Itapids, of Niagara. Col Hay's Lecture on Home. Edward B. Hay repeated his lecture, "The d BViia Eternal City, ancient and modern; its ruinsand churches" at the LafayetteThea ter yesterday afternoon for the benfit of Washington Lodge, No. 15, B.P. O. Elks. A large delegation of the Elks and their friends were present and all were well re paid for their attendance by the lecture and the views which illustrated it. The "views were much more numerous than are gen erally shown in lectures, and were of espe cial elegance and finish. At the close ot the address the lecturer wa s rewarded with loud and continued applause. Col. E. B. Hay indorses the use ot Wam pole's Elk Litliia Spring Water, of Elk ton, Va. DelbittW.Mertz, Manager, G13 15th st. nw. A Musical Entertainment. The Columbia Athletic Club will give another one of its popular smokers at the club house this evening, and the affair promises to be fully equal to former enter tainments of similar character. Music, both vocal and instrumental, with recita tions, etc., "will constitute the entertain ment of the evening. One card -will be allowed each member, and this will also admit a friend. How to Frame Pictures. "Frame your picture simply," writes "William Martin Johnson in the December Ladies Home Journal. "The frame should not be noticeable except where it is needed for decorative purposes. Oils require the gold (not gilt) frame. The shadows in a gold frame arcneutral and do not Interfere with the color Fchcine of a painting. Aquatelles should be given usually a wide white mat, which will give the delicate tones a chance for life. A yellow white molding will never offend the eye. I do not advise the natural wood in frames, ex cept on architecturalsubjects or mechanical drawings" Touching the flatter of Babies. Every baby Is the loveliest in the world, but very few are perfect If you don't be lieve it, weigh and measure the child. In its fourth year the average child should be three feet high and weigli more tharftwenty eight pounds; in the sixtli j'ear, three and a half feet and weigh forty-two; in the eighth year, four feefc high and fifty-six pounds in weight, anu at-twelve years rive reec anu seventy pounds is a fair average. Growth is very irregular in children and young peo ple genrally, for perhaps two inches may be gained in two months and for the next ten months not an inch. While growth is rapid the child tires easily. Before Meeting "Ze Ladies." A Frenchman who paid a visit to this country and was about to be introduced to a family, saidr '-Ah, ze ladies! Zen I vould before, if you please, visit to purify mine hands and sweep mine hair." Gifts. Ere we were one my oath upon it I pleased dear Daphne with .a bonnet; But now, so changed her wifely air, She has to have new gowns to wear. Exchange. WHERE CORK' COMES FROM The great cork forests ot the woild are in southern Europe, especially iu Spain and Portugal. The trees will grow and even thrive in America, but the cork produced is of inferior quality. The Spanish cork forests cover an area of G20.000 acres, those of Catalonia and Barcelona taking first rank. Cork trees growing near the seacoastare subject to a a fungous growth which renders their product useless for purposes of commerce. Cork trees are not strong enough to stand the operation o Marking till they are fifteen years old. After that time, they may be barked every three years without detriment and will continue to thrive and bear for about 1D0 years. Cork ot the lirst stripping is called corcno bornio, or virgin cork; that of the second stripping is known as pclas. The work ot removing the bark from the trees is done In summer time by men, who are paid about 60 cents a day. After the bark is stripped it is boiled, sometimes in the woods, but more otten In largo caldrons at the cork factories, for the purpose of increasing Its thickness and elasticity. . In Spain. Italy. Turkey, Morocco, and Algeria, the countries where cork is most plentiful, it is used for, many thhigs be sides bottle-stoppers. For instance, bee hives, kitchen pails, culinary utensils, coffins. Images, crosses, cubhis, .(Jrjuk ing vessels, pillows, shoes, armor, boats, and -many articles ot furniture are made from cork. THE ART OP SHOPLIFTING In one of the bfg department stores of New York City the throng of eager bargain-hunters is startled every now and then by the sharp ringing of a bell. Sometimes there is but one ring, again there are two, but the crowd of customers after a wonder ing pause goes on and forgets the. occur rence. The ringing of Hie bell means that a shoplifter has been caught. During the holiday seasons or when big bargains are advertised, the ringing or the bell is very frequent. One ring summons only the house detective, who knows Hint a new offender is suspected and must be taken to the offices and searched. Two rings summon the whole corps of house detectives, who are called to take a look at some old offender caught red-handed with the goods, before the patrol wagon comes to carry him or her away. Similar scenes to tills are enacted every day at the big stores in all large cities, while the tempting shops of the jewelers and silversmiths are especially haunted by light-fingered customers. It iscurious.but sedate and quiet Philadelphia is notorious for the number of shoplifters caught there. Philadelphians claim, however, that this is not because there arc moie thieves In Philadelphia, but because their watchmen and detectives have superior vigilance. It is said John Wanamaker employs more detectives to gunrd his wares than any other storekeeper in America, and when ever he seta up rew stores he follows the same rule of employing a large force of detectives. Shoplifting and catching the shoplifters has eye.lopedof late years sur prisingly and is due t'p the giowth ot the department stoVe. Shoplifters mostly steal trlflcB, things they have no use for, but which they take simply because they are handy, ifobody is looking, and they cannot resist the temnta tfbn. A young woman was caught one day who woro a stout rubber band for a dres3 belt, with pockets hanging to the belt, and in them were no less than thirty stolen articles from the store in which she was caught and1 twelve from other stores. Some ot the tilings were the merest trash children's tojs, spools of- thread, and" bits Of ribbon. The thuftVofU a 10-cent thimble was detected and landed her in prison. Many' ot the things stolen would never be missed by the store if they were not returned, by the detectives." A large department store has estimated that 6,000 or $7,000 worth of its goods go to thieves every year. GKAXT ROUG13S IT.. Slept in a Pigpen After tho Battle of tho "Wildornehs, The generaLandstaff bivouacked upon the ground. The night was quite chilly , and a Gen. Grant lay down with his officers besideone of thcfircs, withoutanycovering; when asleep an aide quietly spread an over coat over him, writes Gen. Horace Porter In the January Century. For about four hours we all kept turning over every few minutes, so as to get warm on both sides, imitating with our bodies the diurnal motion of the earth asitoxposcsitssides alternately to the hcator t hesun. When daylight brokeit was seen that a low board structure, close to which the genernl-in-ohief hud laid down, was a pig-pen; but its former occupantshad disappeared, and were probably at that time nourishmgthestomachsofthecavalry troop ers of the invading army. Unfortunately, the odors of the place had not taken their departure with the pigs, but remained to add tothediscomfortof thcbivouackers. Sheri dan's cavalry had had a- fight-atthis place the afternoon before, in which lie had de feated the opposing force, and the ground in the vicinity, strewn with the dead, offered ample evidence ot the severity of the strug gle. At daylight on the morning of the 8th , ac tive operations were in progress throughout the columns. Gen. Sheridan hud ordered his cavalry to move by different roads to seize Ihe btidges crossing the Po River. Gen. Meade modified these orders, and directed a portion ot the cavalry to move in front of Warren's infantry, on the Spottsylvania Court House road The enemy was fell ing trees and placing other obstacles in the way, in order to impede the movement, and the cavalry wasaftcrwnrd "withdrawn and the infantry directed to open the way. Aboutsuririse Gen.

Miss Ivingsley Returns After a Year in tho Cameruons. (From the Popular Science Monthly.) MIs3 Kingslcy, "who returned to Eng land in the fall of 1895, after a Journey ot nearly a year in the Cameroons, col lecting fishes, relates stories ot thrilling adventures, particularly among the Fangwe cannibals, living between the Ogowe and itcmbwe rivers. These people are always at war with one another, aud are one of the few tribes in Africa that eat their own dead. As her little band ot three Fangwe "elephant men" and four DJuma men ap proached each Fangwe town it was found to be in a state of defense, and the leader of the band invariably fell into some trap which the inhabitants had laid outside the town for the enemy. At almost every town the Fangwe stopped the expedition and wanted to cat the Fangwe elephant men, who were of a hostile soction. Miss Kingsley had guaranteed the elephant men safety, and sometimes by persuasion, some times by threats of punishment, and some times by a little present, they "were saved. Not one burial place was found In the country, but pieces of human bodies are kept in most of the native mud huts just as civilized people keep eatables in their larders. The Adjumas, on the other hand, bury their dead in the forest. Miss Kings ley climbed the Cameroons Peak, 13,700 feet high. At an altitude near 10,000 feet, she came across the great crater. There are about seventy craters iu the Came roons Mountains, and from the largest of these the peak shoots up almost perpen dicularly on the sea side; hence it has to be reached from the other side. Inland from the Cameioons the Rubi Mountains are inhabited up to about 7,000 feet, and Miss Kingsley found shelter in native huts. In the higher ascent she had to sleep on the ground in the open air, and During February The Times will publish an ATTRACTIVE AND SEASONABLE LIST OP STORIES by leading American and English nov elists. "THE COWARD OP SALEM," by CHARLES B. LEWIS, a spirited story of olden times in Salem, begins today. In it a young sailor is falsely accused of cowardice on a whaling trip. It will be followed by "A DAMASCUS NIGHT," a romance based on the Turkish massacre, by CLINTON SCOLLARD, author of "Under Summer Skies," "Pictures in Song," etc, and well known, as a traveler in Oriental lands. The studies for this story were made in the city where the action of the plot is located. A most characteristicsketch of New England life, "SERENA ANN'S FIRST VALENTINE," has been written for The Times by riARY E.

Speaking of woman's dress, YJvctte Guil bert says: "Lo not ivear a dress that is prettier than your face. "We have a faying re garding a "woman's dress, not by "what jou see, but what you do not see, shall jou Judge a "woman, "which is the rule that a well-dressed French "woman strict ly observes about her gowns for public "wear. ShedoesnotTveargowns withmuch garniture or any jewels at any place ex cept her own home during the day. At night she may dress with -what brilliancy she pleases. My stage gowns are public gowns they are simplicity itself. A skirt.awaist.thatis all: takingcare always to keep my silhouette my lines of figure that is the chief mistake made in dress ing, the harmony of lines lost. American "women pay too much attention to the f asliton plate, the model gown. They do r.ot keep the figure lines. What need one care for fashion? If I have a slender lody and thin waist I may "wear small sleeves. It I grow stout tomorrow, and my hips and waist are large, I wear sleeves out so" she puffed the loose sleeves of her house gown out a foot from the shoulder.
