A short while ago The Cosmopolitan published an article by a well-known writer under the nom de plume of Raf ford Pyke on "What Women Like in Men," which created wide interest,not only in America, but also in England. The Review of Reviews, of London, said that the article showed "rare sympathy, rarer penetration and rar est knowledge of woman's nature." In The Cosmopolitan for October the same author discusses with brilliance and keenness "What Men Like in Women ''There are few in all the world who would not care to possess the passports to a man's or woman's affection, and it is doubtful if truer words were ever written about a prob lem which has occupied the world from the earliest days of which there is any record than those of this pointed little WoMsk ;s or glue is in roasting LION COFFEE It is all coffee—pure coffee strong and of delicious flavor.f Some coffees are varnished withl a c^eap coating of eggs, glue or 1 other equally noxious substances.

ONLY A FEW DAYS /TORE In Which to Get a Fine Piano at the Wholesale Price. Great opportunities seldom come. You now enjoy the most remarkable one to get a first class piano or organ at the wholesale price, \i hich will be a saving to you of at least $150 on a piano and $75 ou an organ. The large, fine stock in the Edwards building on Main street op posite the A. C. M. Co. store is fast diminishing, and those who want a piano or expect to get one within the next year should not put it off an other momeut, as ui a few days more this the greatest and fairest piano sale ever seen here or will be seen will have ceased. The uew scale, Kimball piano stands strictly first dass by the profession and the trade, and no other piano in the world has had such an endorsement by the greatest musicians. Their popularity is unparalleled and the demand for th"m is overwhelmniug. You can easy save $10 a month .aud never miss it, and you can't spend the same amouDt of money in any other way that will bring as much happiness and permanent benefit to your family, especially if yon buy right now. You can't realize what bargaius are offer ! j ! • Atodkof liquors and cigars of the Ra ' valh'hoiei bar. mwr eiused, aadisetos ed at this sale; if you did there Would i not be a piauo left at this store to morrow night. i w.

Cook, ' »The *ext time I go to Maine," »aid.; the girl, pausing to chat while' she i, unpacked her trunk, relates . the ^ New York Sun, "I take with me? a complete celluloid outfit, so as to ■nap my fingers at lanndry agents and the like. With water, water everywhere on the Coast of Malfie, you'd think it would, be easy to get , your washing done, but it isiÿt. "On the island where I was stay ing the first week all my; things wqre • shipped off miles and miles away to Portland, or Boston or Bath. The laundry agent was a most obliging and delightful boy, a son of an Amreicair ambassador or something equally imposing, and a true, thrifty ; Yankee. He was putting himself through some university by this cleanly summer pursuit. And it was a pursuit, if pursuit means hunting for lost things. "Well, he took my things Monday, called at the cottage in person, dis- < cussed affably the social news of the island, partook of the ginger ale our host brought out and then went off with our bundles under his arm. Sat urday he brought back what there was. It was a very meager display. A lot of my things didn't turn up at « all, and all the hoolcs had been ripped <: off one of my waists, in an excess'of zeal, for fear they would,, rust. The agent' was very sympathetic. I de- ' scribed the things I was shy on. It. did seem funny, but he never cracked a smile; he just jotted down de scriptions of the missing things in his little memorandum book and promised to look them up._, . . "You see hè went everywhere and I met him at. every tack and turn. I ignored his laundry career at dances and clambakes and such places, but I am told there were girls who tackled him boldly during t.he pauses of the Boston dip, or when they were tïpped up on the edge of a catboat with him, or anywhere, about things ; trimmed with Hamburg and others ruffled and edged with torehon. "I used to, assail him on the wharf when the express boat came in. He was really such a very nice boy and toefc.no'end of pains. One by one ■my things trickled back. He would^ come bp" to me off The vfliprf, bare-,' headed, his eytw beaming snfi fcr* teeth glearaïng.

"Once he cajne up very confidently to knoy; ir jr ImcV pink ribbon run in fitly thing, as there tv u s à corset cover seeking an owner and he thought I might be she, although he remem bered I never sent things without titking the ribbons out! Nice as he was. though, I couldn't patronize his old laundry, so I tried various other evils. "Speaking of the polite little laun dry agent makes me think of th'e lot of people down in Maine who work at anything during the summer to go to college during the other nine months. The man who ran the trunk delivery business was a senior at some university, a terror in Latin and .Greek, I suppose, and he certain ly : was a wizard with the trunks. He didn't look at the cheeky until he got to- your house, and then he general ly would find he had mixed things. I used to moralize to myself sometimes as to whether educated service is (is good ns the plain straight kind. "For instance, the housemaid at the cottage where I stayed knew a lot you didn't expect her to know, but from one to two things my hostess let drop I fancy Ida fell short in the things she was expected to know. One day at dinner one of the children asked her father the French for crumb. He couldn't tell her, although he was educated abroad. We all tried but none of us could recollect the word. After din ner Alice, the little girl, came out and asked her father if miette was not the French for crumb, " 'That's the word I was trying to think of,' he said. 'Who told yoïi V "It seems it was Ida who knew.. She got hold of Alice after dinner and said: T wanted to tell you at the table. Miss Alice, but, of course, I couldn't speak then.' Ida h?d studied French for four years and German for three in some New England high school and had aspirations to teach modern languages. "The cook, we discovered, west in for pure English. We overheard Ida one day describing a man's appear ance to the cook. " 'He't a short, fat man, sunburned, and generally he wears a cap and white pants,* he said. 'Trousers,' the cook said, in a contraction« ! hated to hear anyone use. • "**"♦ culture and pure is one which the cook i rea **X horrified tone, and Ida learned i st™8*tw»y P»«"* is a vulgar j "But culture and pure English didn't hurt the cook's art.
