"Nqbody will set out a woman's garbage can for her but her servant her (husband or her lover." This is not the persiflage of a yaudevil.list or the epigram of a philosopher or thr mocker)* of a cynic. It is the grave declaration of a referee in a divorce case where it was proved' that the de fendant husband had not only carried h(\me groceries for the co-respondent, but, had looked after the garbage pail Shakespeare classed the lover along with the poet and the lunatic, because they "are of imagination all compact." The referee in this case classes him with the husband and the .servant be cause of a Servitude absolute. The argument of the referee in support of Ills conclusion was quite simple. "A man's affection for a woman." he said, "is shown by his willingness to take trouble on her behalf, to do lit tle services for her, to do with a will ing hand that which a man not Jn love would .deem tiresome, trouble some and disgusting." Then it is not the champagne din ner nor the lobster supper, nor the auto ride nor the diamond ring nor even the sonnet nor the offer of mar riage "that constitutes the supreme test of love. Colony Lives as injthe Past, ii,' Wrapped In the dark superstition of the middle ages, a colony of Rus sian Cossacks still endeavors to hide itself away in Anatolia,'Asia Minor affording a rare field for research for .the student of the historical. About 3,000 of the forefatlijjfs of these Cos sacks left Russia for voluntary exile 350 years ago. Their departure was occasioned by an attempt to enroll their names for census purposes'in writing. According to the creed of these peasants, the writing down of their names Jeopardizes their chances of salvation, for it involves the Curse of Antichrist, enabling him to set his seal upon them. During the whole of this time the Cossacks have kept their identity absolutely intact. The.v speak a Russian dialect bearing the same relation to the language of the present day as does our modern Eng lish to that of Cftaucer. They wear the Russian dress of three centuries ago, and even grow herbs, uncultivat ed elsewhere in Anatolia, to make the dishes that were the'food of mediae val Russia. wc A Tragedy. All was excitement in the Simperly household, chortles the Philadelphia Times. W.rdie Flnklewix was coming from far-off Samoa to claim pretty Sallie Simperly as his bride. Carefully,, and with the light of un dying love in her eyes, Sallie Simper ly took Ferdie's seven photographs from the left hand bureau drawer and arranged them on the piano in the parlor. Tanned by the Samoa trade winds, Ferdie strode into the parlor to take his beloved in his arms. "And my seven pictures have been ever a source of Inspiration to you while you let your fingers stray over the keys in some melody of love!" he cried as the simpering seven met his gaze. At that moment little Susie Simper ly entered the room, "O-o-o!" she exclaimed in her inno cent childish way, "I observe seven likenesses on the piano which I can not recall having hitherto noticed." "Good night and good-by!" said Fer die Flnklewix. Origin of the Stocking. A writer in a French newspaper has been investigating the origin of stock ings. It appears that Henry II. when preparing for the marriage of his sis ter in 1559 first conceived the idea of silk hose, and was the first .to'jwear silk knitted stockings at that epoch making event. A hundred years later one Hindres established a factory for stockings in the Bois de Boulogne. This was the first hosiery. factory in France,. It was a success at the start, fftid, when it received protection from the then ministers, it was a kind of gold mine. In 1663 the venture was turned into a company. From it arose "the Society of Silk. Stocking Makers." A Good Pole Horse. Prospective Purchaser—I want a horse to use in my work. Dealer—Well, what kind of work do you do? Prospective Purchaser—Wire repair ing. Dealer—Here she is. Just the horse you want, young man. All you have to do is to show Maude a picture of an automobile and she'll piimb *.ele eiaph pole.—Judge. Equal to the Occasion. He had been a writer of novelettes, but now he was a tramp. The imagiu aUve instinct remained with him, how ever. "Well," demanded the cold-vfsaged lady as she opened the door. "Madam." he replied, "I am the ex lied king of Cambria. I was hunting in yonder forest, but in some way I became separated from my retainers, likewise my gun and purse. I am foot sore and weary, and I would fain tar ry awhile and partake of refreshment at your hospitable board." "We've got nothing in the house fit for a king to eat," said the lady, in the same lofty tone "but I pray (hee tarry while I unchain my bull hound Tearum. He will escort your majesty with all ceremony, to the gates, and methinka-—" But the king remembered a press I tig engagement elsewhere. A Modern Type. They are usually of a willful falr ness,-with' flesh kept firm by the mas' seuse their brows are lowering, and there is the perpetual hint of hard ness in their faces their apparel is exceedingly good, but their manners are ungentle, their voices harsh and discontented there is no light in their eyes, no charm or softness in their presence. They ar& fitting mates, per haps, for the able-bodied pagans who are overrunning the earth, but hard ly suitable nurses for a generation which must redeem us from material ism, If indeed we are to 'be redeemed. Facing them, one wonders if race sui slde is not one of nature's merciful de vices. How should they or their off spring ever replace our old-fashioned lady? Yet they are the natural'prod uct of much of our modern wealth, as she was the natural product of the comfortable life of a generation of two ago.—Tho Atlantic. Mothe'rly Admonition. 4 New York woman of great beauty sailed one day upon a friend, bringing with her her 11-year-old daughter, who jives promise of becoming as great a beauty as her mother. It chanced that the callers were 3hown into a room where the friends bad been receiving? a milliner, and .here were several beautiful hats ly ng about. During the conversation he little girl amused herself by ex imining the milliner's creations. Of :he number that she tried on she jeemed .particularly pleased with a arge black affair.which set off her Ight hair charmingly.' Turning to her aother, the little girl said: "I look just like you now, moth er, don't I?" "Sh!" 'cautioned the mother, witli iplifted finger. "Don't be vain, dear."—• «ippincott's. Walnuts High In Fooo Value. The food value of walnuts is very high. They are very rich in fat, con taining as much as 63 per cent, while the proteins amount to nearly 15 per cent. It has been calculated that 30 large walnut kernels contain as much fat tas 2-% pounds of lean beef, and yet the walnut 'H used as a supple ment to a square, meal. Added to this the glass of. port, say .two fluid ounces, contains besides 180 grains of alcohol, 70 grains of grape, sugar. In the combination, therefore,' we have all the -elemeuta which -make. for a complete diet—viz.:-.Fat, protein, car bohydrate, to which may be added mineral salts. Port and walnuts after a meal are therefore, .from a nutritive point of view, "ridiculous excess,*' and may lead to digestive disturbance'. Both walnuts and port wine contain tannin, which is unsuited to some con stitutions. J.., H-'1''' "V" Easily Adjusted.
