Wben tiie late Baron Nordenskjold waa at Oeylon on the way bome from bia journey along tbe northem coast of Slberia he received a telegram from the Russian government asklng hlia wbether be would accept from tba caar a certain decoratlon as an apprt datlon of his aatrfcea to Rossia. FV many days the famous explorer wnv ered, aa he ? as a member of B^r aterne BJornson's Antl-decoratlon club. whose members were solemnly pledged never to accept any decoratlon from anybody. Nordenskjold, however. could uot reslst the temptatlon, so he rcplled to the telegram ln tho afflrmatlve. It la not bard to lmagine his dlsappolnt ment wheu, upon reachlng bome, a friend of bis, o high offlclal, told him the following: "The Russian govern? ment was well awnre of your antago nlstlc vlews in regard to decorntlons and had. thercforc, placed in readlnoss 800,000 rubles to be paid you ln the event of your refuslng to accept the lnslgnla, but before paylng that sum they wanted to try your flrmncss. Rus sia ls certainly grateful to you for your fallure to live up to your pledge." Death Was a Live One. While on the way to the race track in New Orleans one day several wlnters ago an undertaker named Mr. Dooley passed a funeral processlon on Its way to the cemetery.

Dooley told all his friends of tbe incldent, nnd they all went out to tbe course tbe next time Death was entered. ITo won every time he started for thlrteen races. It was near getaway day, when every one was packlng up ready to take the la_t traiu for New York. The horse was aold that afternoon at nn auctlon aale, and the buyer wns Mr. Dooley. He hltched him a month later to a hearse, and the horse became frlght ened and ran away and was not stop ped until the gravcyard was reached. After the hurial Dooley had the horse ahot and buried near the cemetery. "You'ro a dead one now, Death," said Dooley, "but a live one in those thlr? teen races."?Baltlmore American. The Faahion of the Houae. A aervant girl happened to be en gaged at a farmhouse where the mls tress was known to have a hasty tem per. On the first Saturday night the girl was at the farmhouse she was told by tho mlstress to clean the boots ready for Sunday. The mlstress on comlng into the kltchen later on saw that the girl had cleaned her own boots flrst. So she took them up and threw them into a tub of water that was standlng by and bounced out of the kltchen. The girl said nothing, but when she had cleaned the other boots ahe threw them also into the water. "Whatever possesaed you to do that, girl?" asked the mlstress on comlng again ln tho kltchen. The girl gimply replied: "Well, ma'nm, please mn'am, I thought it was the fashion of the house, ma'am!"?London Tit-Bits. Saved by Her Voice.
