"When I learned the deaf-mute sign language, a few years ago," ssid a young lawyer yesterday," it was for a defiuite purpose, and sirce then, inci leutally, it bad lurniabed it good deal of umusement to me. There are not mat y deaf mutes in this city, and when, :u coming down on an elevated train ibis morning I discovered that the cross ^at opposite me was occupied by two youua women who were con versing ij -i?u language, my interest was at once excited. They were neat lot king girls, tiud as I sallied in my seat I discovered that ibey were currying ou an ani? mated conversation on a certaiu young mau whose merits ami demerits they were frankly discussing, never dream? ing that any one else in the car could understand them. Suddenly one ol them noticed that I was looking intent y at them, and with her lingers she said to the other girl: " 'Don't look uii just now; but in the seat acro.-s from you is a young man on whom you have made un impression He isu't bad looking.' "J glanced idly out of the window to gjve the girl a chance to inspect me, aDd with difficulty I suppressed a smile. She looked me over critically, and then with her fingers she earn: "'You saw him first. He is yours. I don't like blondes myself.' u'It was you at whom he was look inc,' came the reply. " 'No; no was looking at you. I don't like his mustache. Just look at him uow, conceited tbitig 1 He is curling it.' " T think his mustache is very nice,' said the first girl. 'Don't look in bie ditection so frequently or he will sus? pect us.' " 'He looks too slow to suspect any? thing. Besides, I can see him by look? ing iu the mirror, ami he doesn't know it. I am goingtosize himupagain now,' and as she turned toward the mirror to did I, and I caught her glance square in tho eyes. The young woman Hushed a bit and theo pretended to be looking out of the window. The gill who ad? mitted that 1 was not bad to look at DU Iged her friend and with her nimble fingers said : 'His clothes fir him well, don't the\ ? Wouldn't he be angry if he knew that we were talking about him. I think that he is nice.' "It was with difficulty that I could prevent myself Irom acknowledging this compliment in sign language, but I didn't waut to spoil ti e fun. Thesecotd girl looked at mo again by way of the mirror aud then said : " He is stariug at us too much. Let's look at his shoes and embarrass him. He will think that there is something wroug with them. " 'All right,' shM my friend, and two pairs o( eyes were turned on my shoes, which I knew were aL right. Being forewarned, I was not embarrassed, and I thrust my fee! a little forward so that they might be in lull view. " 'It's no go,' said the second girl, 'and in a long experience it is the lirst time that I ever failed at this trick. He does not even look down at his shoes. I Will bet that he is awfully conceited.' "They kep up a very frf e discussion of my appearance, and wheu we reach? ed City Hall station I arose to go out and thty followed right behind. The car had been well filled aud the girls were in a hurry. I stepped to one side and in sign language said to the one right behind me: " 'Excuse me, I am eoiry to be in your way.' "That giil read my hands in amaze? ment, and I would nol have missed I the expression of her lace as her eyes met mine for anything. It was a blm h to remember. Without explaining to the other girl, who was behind her, she grabbed her arm and hustled her about face and out of the other door. As I reached the platform I saw the girl whom I addressed explaining it to tho other girl, whoso face indicated that she wns struggling between morti? fication and inirtb. Just as they turn? ed toward the bridge both of them looked back at m?'. I smiled and raid? ed my hat. They laughed and on they went. It was a pleasant little enter? tainment for a down-town trip."?[N. V. Sun. Discovered by a Woman. Another great discovery has been made aud that, too, by a lady in tbie country. "Disease fastened its clutches i upon her aud for seven years she witb 8 ood its severest tests, but her vital o;gnus weie undermined aud death seemed immiuent. For three months she coughed incessantly and could not sleep. She finally discovered a way to n cover by purchasing of us a bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery for Con? sumption, and was so much relieved on taking first dose, that she slept all j niaht and with two bottles has been ab I soluteh' cured.
