Careful of Her Niue. M"*\y interesting stories of courtiers unit cC ' French court ore found In the memwiw of the Mar quise de Creqny. She says that on cer tain solemn occasions kings of France wore ermine linings to their robes, but ermine became scarce, and she writes: "The anointing of Louis XV. was re tarded some years for want of this fur for the court mantles, and at the coro nation of Louis XIV. they actually used catsldn." Superbly elegant was the Purhcsse do la Forte, who generally Wits carried around under a canopy. The marquise goes into ecstasies con cerning this particular dnehesse, whose eyes "had the most: disdainful expres sion I ever saw, though they had a slight cast in them." But her supremo elegance can he appreciated when it: Is known "she never blew her nose for fear of spoiling her Greek contour, lint: dabbed it n( intervals with a small square of cambric." !V!!,pi in f ii Kruiiklin'-i Wife. A very unlhiUoring description of Benjamin Franklin's wife is taken from tin- diary of Daniel Fisher, who was Franklin's secretary for a short time. "She sat on the floor at a neigh bor's. She assumed the airs of extraor dinary freedom and great humility, lamented heavily the misfortunes of those who are unhappily infected with a too tender or benevolent disposition, said ski- believed all the world claimed the privilege of troubling her pappy so she visually calls Mr. Franklin with tlicir calamities and distress, giving us a general history of many such wretch es and their impertinent applications." He mentions "llie turbulence and jeal ousy and pride of her disposition" and the violence of her invectives. Pointing to Franklin's son one day. she exclaim ed. "There goes the greatest villain up on earth!" Hooka In Serif*. While it Is certainly a pretty sight to see a long row of books in u neat and uniform binding, like soldiers on pa rade, there is a distinct loss of indi viduality. As you glance over your books upon their shelves it is pleasant to recognize them from their outward dress. They keep themselves better in mind if each one is not exactly like its neighbors. You are even likely to for get what you have if you cannot know them from across the room. We often go to the bookcase looking simply for "something to read," and then it is an advantage to know each book at the llrst glance. Of course this does not apply so strongly to the works of a single author. These belong in a uniform, and you know wlmt is among them.—St. Nicholas. Flirting? In Japan. A Japanese woman dirts-—as far as she knows the meaning of the word— with her sleeves and fan and not with her eyes and smiles. By the different movements of the ends of her kimono sleeves she manages to convey to her admirers all sorts of unspoken mes sages, and by the opening and shutting of her fan to the right or to the left she can reject or accept the most weighty offers. Her code signaling with her sleeves and fan Is quite an Item of her social education. French Soldier.' Ilmidkcrcliicfii. The cotton handkerchiefs provided for French soldiers have printed upon them a number of sanitary precepts to be observed on the march and during a campaign and tiro further decorated with medallions containing pictures of officers of all grades, the different uni forms being so distinctly portrayed that a French private can tell tit a glance to what grade any officer he may see belongs. Well She Might. An old German historian of Tubin gen describes an attack by the French in 1074 during which eighteen persons were killed by the exploding of a mine. A soldier's wife was thrown the distance of an acre. She was not hurt, the chronicler adds quaintly, "but she scolded terribly and was in • very bad humor." After the Quarrel. She—There Is just one little bit of millinery that I desire more. He (crossly)—You needn't say any more. I won't buy It for you. She—Don't be afraid. You'll never get the bill for it. It's a widow's bonnet. A Sure Way. Mabel—I wish I knew some way to make George forget me, for I can nev er marry him. Henry—Have you tried lending him money?—New Orleans Tim e r --- -- PROPER WAY TO WALK. A Physical lfiMtru<*tor AiItIca oh tilt* Siibjoet. The way to walk straight Is not to think of the shoulders at all, says a physical instructor. Hang your arms loosely at your sides and hold your self erect by moderate tension of the back and abdominal muscles and tho muscles of tho neck. Then your shoul ders will have to hang right. Don't "throw out" your chest. The chest that is inflated properly by deep breathing is hound to be thrown out, and thrown out not like that of a stuffed figure, but naturally, because it can't help it. Don't walk with a stiff neck. Hold your head erect the way an animal does. Watch a deer. Its noelc Is al ways in motion, yet it is always held beautifully. Your bead poised on a stiffly belli neck Is no good for either balancing or looking around you. Pois ed confidently on strong but pliant neck muscles, it becomes wluiLa head should he. Many classes of men who do much walking, such as Indians, guides and trappers, walk with their bodies in clined forward a lillle bit. But they don't round their shoulders or stoop their heads. They incline forward from tlie hips. This throws their weight, a little ahead and gives the leg muscles the chance to exert till their power in the best directions. But tlir, upper body is never bent by these men. It simply is held forward from tho hips at ti very slight, barely percepti ble, angle. Even if correct poise in walking had nothing to do with oilier forms of athletics it would lie invaluable In it self. The mail who walks right is go ing to keep his organs heart, kidneys, liver and lungs—in splendid form. But, besides ail this, it helps wonderfully in all outdoor sports. PAPUAN CANNIBALS. They Must Murder mill TunU- lluniiin ISlooil to Attain Manhood. The cannibal instinct of the Papuan of New Guinea is not hard to explain. In all the 313,000 square miles of New Guinea there is not a tribe which does not regard murder as a knightly ac complishment. Until a man litis taken a human life and has sipped human blood ho is an object of ridicule, lie is not permitted to tattoo himself, and with a skin thus unadorned he is shun ned by Papuan society. Immediately after killing some one, however, the murderer must undergo six days of "purification," which are marked by various uncanny rites, lie first washes himself and Ids weapon and seats himself upon a stage in the sight of tho whole town, but neverthe less unnoticed by all. During this time be must eat nothing except roasted ba nanas, tlie pulp of which he bites out and the rest lie throws away. On the third day he has so far purified him self that his friends entertain him at a feast, and on the fourth day ho decks himself with all the ornaments of his home and parades up and down the vil lage. After being thoroughly admired be walks down to a river, and, stand ing with feet wide apart, he lets all the boys who want to become great men swim through ids legs. On the next day at dawn he jumps from bed and yells out of the window at the top of his lungs. IDs shout Is supposed to scare away the ghost of his victim. On the following day he returns to his wife, who has spurned him up to this time, and is once more Installed as the respected lord of ills household.—New Yortt Tribune. Sunken la llie Water. All reptiles swim. Almost all suakes move through the water with as much ease and rapidity as on land. Rattle snakes, for example, are much given to swimming in placid water if it Is not too cold. In the everglade lakes of Florida they may be often seen. It is well to know that to attack from a boot a poisonous snake In the water is a much more dangerous proceeding than to attack the snake on land. The reason is that the reptile will immedi ately make for the boat, since It must have n solid base from which to strike. It hnlf leaps and half climbs into the craft, aiul there Is a fight nt uncom fortably close quarters.—Success. Foiled. Tramp—It Is needless to ask the question, madam. You know what I want. Lady—Yes, I know what you want badly, but I've only one bar of soap in the bouse, and the servant is using it. Come again some other time. —Glasgow Times.
