M ITEM BY TELEPHONE.
The city editor sat alone in his room in tho
newspaper office. He was in very bad humor
that evening because he had been hoaxed by
a piece of alleged news that he thought
trustworthy, and it had narrowly escaped
getting into the paper. As the city editor
was laying his plans to catch tho hoaxer
thero came a ring at tho telephone. Ho
waited for a moment to seo if somebody else
In tho building was going to answer, and
then went to tho instrument himself.
"Hello," said a voice. "Who is thati"
"Tho city editor."
"You are just tho man, then, I want to
talk to. I want you to take down something
that I think will bo of interest to tho readers
of your paper."
"All right. Go ahead!" said the city edi
tor. "TTnvH vnu srot naner and pencil there?"
"ISb. Go ahead w ith what you have to
5ay. I'll take it down."
"This requires accuracy. You will have to
havo a paper and pencil."
"Very well," said tho city editor, "wait a
moment Now, then,"' lie continued, "go
"Is thero anybody else there!"' asked the
"Yf hat difference does it make?"
"Well, it makes this difference, that I
want to know if you stay at tiie telephone un
til lam through. Will you promise that?"'
"If you have any news to send in," said
tho citv editor, rather crossly, "please sid
t m." "
"Will you promise to wait at the telephone
until I am through?"
"111 promise nothing of the kind," said
the editor; "I'll ring oir in another moment."
"Listen to me, taid the voice; "if you ring
oil', you do yourself out of oue of the moat
ensnt-onal items that has occurred within
'.he last six months. Unle:3 you promise mo
t'll ring up tho opposition paper, and I think
aiey v.ill be glad of the item."
"All right," said tho city editor, "I prom
ise. Go ahead."
"Now, see uere, thero's another thing. At
the end of every sentence I want you to an
swer 'yes.' I can recognizo your voice and I
can toll whether you have summoned any one
to your assistance. Tho moment that I find
that you have done so, I will ring off at tho
central and you will lose your item. If you
make any attempt to communicate with tho
central office I shall hear you and will ring
"Why, what's all this nonsense about?" said
the city editor. "If you have got any news let
inc have it. If you haven't, stop all this talk.
I don't want to hear it."'
"All right," said the other, "that's business.
Now you are to understand that you aro to
answer 3cs at tho end of every sentence, I
am going to commit suicide.'
"Yes," from tho city editor.
"I have every preparation for it in my
oom. I am going to commit suicide in tho
French fashion with a pan of charcoal. It is
hero b3 my side ready to bo lighted. I am a
young physician who has had nothing to do,
and it's either slow starvation or tho quicker
method of tho charcoal pan. Do you under
"You understand now why I do not wish
to bo interrupted?"
"Yes," answered tho city editor.
"I would havo written down my sensations
during tho coming of death, but I am afraid
that my hand may got paralyzed, and that
anyway I cannot writo as fast as tho symp
toms, which I wish to describe, occur. Bo
sides, 1 think I can talk hero longer than I
could write anyhow. I havo tho telephone
fixed down opposite my chair and havo my
bead propped up against it, so that so long as
I can speak lean tell you my symptoms."
"All right," said tho city editor.
"Now, In order that this description of tho
svmptoms of a man being poisoned by car
bon monoxido is of any value you must bo
accurate. Tho trouble with you newspaper
men is inaccuracy, especially when you touch
on anv scientific subject."
"Yos, that's all right," said tho city editor.
"I've heard that remark before. Well, go
on. Have you lighted your fire yet?"
"No, not yet. I want to bo suro that you
aro perfectly ready and that you have all tho
materials with you for a long interview. Do
you hear mo plainly?"
"First rate,' taid tho city editor. As ho
said 'this ho heard a step down the halL
"Now," said the city editor, "perhaps be
fore you begin to light tho fire you will tell
me something about tho cause of death in
the method you are ubout to adopt. You
kw, I know nothing whatever nboui the mat
ter' and I would like to havo a little prelimin
ary information about it.'
"I'll do that,' taid the voice from the
telephone, "but in any case after you havo

MOST of tho cases cured by Ayor'a

"That is a good idea," said the city eritar.
"Now go ahead with the preliminary." Then
placing his hand over the funnel of the tele
phone so that no sound could reach the other,
he called out:
"Fox, is that you?"
"Yes," answered Fox, coming into the
"See here, Fox, I'll tell you what I want
you to do. Go right up to the central office
of the telephone company and find who is
connected with me. I've got to stick right to

trying to hoax us again and I want to catch

it is, get a policeman with you and go up to the
house and catch him, if possible, at the tale

Fox disappeared. While this conversation
was going on the person at the other end of
the line was talking in this manner:
"Poisoning by carbon monoxide occurs in
this way. It is the toxic constituent in gas
necessary, and it would have been in shock
ing bad form."
"For the second well, do you think It is in
form for a young lady to promise to dance
the german with any man without consult
ing the one she has promised to marry P
"Bound herself to marry is the way la
which Aunt Fanny puts it."
"Aunt Fanny always did have the knack
of saying the nastiest things that anybody
could think of."
"Which was perhaps the reason that you
just quoted her to me."
He laughs, with an evident relenting from
the fit of vexation that has been growing
"You are clever, Gladys," he Bays. "I
wonder that I am ever so foolish as to get
into an argument with you."
"So do L"
"Not that you are ever right, but that you
are so elusive."
"And yet you say women cannot argue."
"No more can they. You do not argue;
"Which is much the same thing, since it
serves my purpose and puts off your argu
ment" "Which shows that you do not argue to be
convinced of the truth, but to get the better
"Oh, no; merely to prevent your getting
tho better of me. Don't you think that we
had better finish tho set? This stone is very

tho tennis court.
I "Games all, isn't it?" she remarks.
I "Yes; but before we go on with the tennis,
Gladys, 1 do wish you would promise me not
to dauco tho german with Wadleighly."
' "Oh, havo you harked back to that? That
' Is really tedious of you, Theo."
1 "I shouldn't hai k back to that if there had
been any show of coming to a decision. You
! have left everything just where it was be-
j fore we began to tnlk."
"Why not? Wasn't that a good place?"
I "Of course not, or I shouldn't have spoken
' about it at all. I do not do it because I find
it pleasant, I assure you."
"Oh, no; I did not mean that you should.'
"You aie not obliged to bo grateful. I
was only acting in self defense. It is your
"And you promise?"
"Don't undertake to be obstinate with mo,
Theo; you know that it is of no use in tho
j Theo looks an instant at his companion, and
then, with tho evident fear of losing control
I of his temper, ho goes to the further court,
I where his back is to tho sea, and takes his
' place ready to servo. Gladys stands ready to
receive, when suddenly she catches sight of
something on tho water below tho terrace
which attracts her attention, so that she al
lows tho first ball to go by without even an
attempt to play it.
"I wasn't ready," she calls out.
"I beg your pardon. Playl"
Tho ball comes hurtling along so swiftly
that it is evident that tho player is putting
his vexation into his servico and follows its
predecessor along the lawn toward tho house.
"Fifteen, love," calls tho server.
"You aro real mean to serve mo those hor
rid swift balls," Gladys cries. "You know I
cannot return them."
"Oh, no; I did not mean that you should,"
ho retorts in her own words of a few moments
"That Is the way in which you take ad
vantage of your strength," sho says panting
ly. "I think tennis should bo a game of
"By all means. Thirty, love."
Gladys changes her court with the air of
ono who is much abused, and another swift
ball whizzes past her feet.
"Forty, love," calls Theo.
Since ono moro of these swift services will
cause her defeat by a lovo set, Gladys calls a t
"I don't see, Theo," sho remarks, pausing
wish racquet poised in tho air as if sho were
uot in tho least thinking of tho game, "what
in tho world you are always making such a
fuss about Will Wadleighly for. I am sure I
have never done anything to make you think
I care for him."
"Oh, dear, no, my love," Theo returns, with
an air somewhat sarcastic. "You do not care
for anybody, so far as can bo judged by any
thing you show. You are clever enough for
that, at least You do not wear your heart
if you have one, which there is grave reason
to doubt on your sleeve for daws to peck at.
But Gladys walks down to the net.
"Now, what do you mean by thatr' she
demands. "Do you mean to accuse mo of be
ing heartless? Not that thero would be any
novelty in such a charge if you did."
"Flay!" calls Theo, without leaving the
"I will not play until you tell me why you
r-hould select Will as the especial mark of
your wrath or jealousy, r whatever you
choose to call it."
"Are there others, then, of whom I have
reason to be jealous also?"'
"Of course that is not what I meant, Theo."
"No, of course not.'
"Then tell me what I want to know. You
always fiy out at the mention of Will's name
like a bull at a red rag."
"Well, then, it is because, whatever may
be the state of your feelings to him, he is cer
tainly in love with you."
"How- perfectly lovely! You can't expect
me to give up the pleasure of dancing with a
man who is in love with me just because you
happen to be out of sorts about it."
"It seems that it is useless for me to expect
anything of the sort," returns her betrothed.
"Will you play or will you not?"'
"Oh, I will play, of course, if you like."
She walks slowly to the back of the court,
but she puts on on air of such virtuous resig
nation that Theo begins to feel that ho must
somehow really be a wretch, and the conse
quence is that he serves a ball that she returns
without difficulty. As she is clever at placing
she wins the stroke.
Gladys smiles to herself as he changes
courts. She feels that th game is net lost
after alL In his wish to bo reasonable Theo
Ferves two faults, so that the score is brought
to "Forty, thirty," and on the next turn
Gladys manages, by-returning and afterward
volleying a difficult ball, to bring it to
"Deuce." . . , ,
"Every game of this set has been a deuce
ret " she observes, in a manner intending to
soothe her lover, that he may no: yield" to
the temptation of sending the swift balls,
which are quite too much for her.
"Evecr game you play is likely to hav

the deucotb pay In ft sooner orTSKer."
Put into good humor by this jest, Theo
serves an easy ball and loses the stroke.
"Advantage out." he calls.
"Now I am going to win," Gladys cries,
incautiomsly, and the result is a ball which
goes past her like a shot from a cannon.
"Oh, how mean of youl"
"Then yom ahcott act bmra boasted. You
know I can beat you any time on that swift
"But I think that Is not fair. You know
a girl cannot serve like that."
"That isn't my lookout."
"I have never observed that you girls felt
at all bound to show any mercy to my sex in
the lines where we cannot begin to match
"But that is altogether different."
"How is it different?"
"You know it is different"
"But how is it?"
"Are you going to finish this game or are
"Oh, I can finish it at any time. I am in
no hurry, thank you. The pleasure of hav
ing you to look at across the net is too great
to be ended by finishing the set prematurely."
"But this game would not finish the set,
"Who said it would?"
"Will you play?"
"Play, then, if you are in so desperate a
The second ball falls lightly at the feet of
Gladys, who lightly tosses it back. Theo
catches it just as it Is ready to strike the
ground for the second time, and for a mo
ment they havo quite a lively little rally. In
the end, however, Theo sends the ball flying
out of the court
"That is mine," cries Gladys. "Advantage
out It was over the line here."
"Then I must have this one," he returns,
raising his racquet with the evident inten
tion of pounding the ball.
"You are too mean, Theo. I wont play
with you any more if you serve that way."
"I'll promise never to serve so in my life if
you will promise not to dance the german
"That is taking advantage, too. I shouldn't
think that you would be willing to take a fa
vor from a girl when you know sho does not
want to grant it"
"Then you do not want to grant me a fa
vor?' "On the contrary, I am charmed to grant
you anything in reason, our when it comes to
giving up tho best partner there is to be had
to the german, that is quite another thing.
That issimply tyranny on your part; to ask
it, I mean."
"The idea of anybody's being anio to tyran-
mze over you is simply ludicrous."
"Oh, don't mention it, I beg
"Only if it is to make any difference -with i
your service I may as well tell you but no;
on second thought it isn't worth while."
"But what is it?"
"Oh, nothing. It was only something about
Will Wadleighly, that is all."
"Confound Will Wadleighlyl What about
"Hadn't we better finish t-he game first and
talk aDout him afterward?"
"Just as you please. Do as you like.
"2fo, wait, Theo. Perhaps I had better

jumping at conclusions without anything to

"Certainly I do not know anything of the

"Oh, it leads up to it.'

me anything yet?"
"More than you understand, and less than

"No; it is an oracle."
Tho young man regards her with an air
wholly perplexed and more than half angry.
He is ovidently divided between a desiro to
shake her and an inclination to regard the
whole matter as of no possible consequence.
At last ho says stiffly:
"Do you happen to know what the score
"Certainly. It is my advantage. But
speaking of Will, you know that you always
fly out so when I speak of him that you never
know exactly what I say about him. Now
you really do not in tho least know what I
told you about him this afternoon."
"Of course I do. You 6aid ho came over
last night to ask you to dance this german
with him and that you accepted."
"Now see to what lengths of willful mis
understanding a man's jealousy can lead
him! I said nothing of the sort."
"What did you say, then?"
"I said he came over last night to engage
a partner for the german. You asked in
your most sarcastic voice if he succeeded in
enrraging one, and I answered that he did.
Wasn't that the conversation?"
"Well, what if it was? Isn't that the same
"That is as you look at it Whom do you
suppose he asked to dance with him?'
"Why, you, of course."
"Oh, nothing of the sort. He invited cous
in May, and she accepted the invitation."
"Certainly. Do you think I would be
guilty of anything in so bad form as to dance
the german with another man while you
were callod out of town?"
"Gladys Aplostl You're the most aggra
vating girl that wai ever made."
"Then you will perhaps finish the game."

A QUESTION OF IDENTITY.
From this window look, friend 1 There's my Anna,
Our one daughter. Isov look at her hair I
How it glistens gold red in the sunlight,
As she stands iu tho old garden there.
Such a crown was once -worn by another.
There's a portrait that hangs near you, sir.
Just three "greats" and a "grand" beforo mother
Makes the title my Anna gives her.
They do say it is true to tha life, sir
Back in seventeen sixty "mas made
Anna's hair from the hair in the picture
One can see scarcely differs a shade.
Jow, sir, notice the nose of my daughter!
My Aunt Jane had a noso just like that.
You remember her mother's a Roman,
And my own is my own, and that's flat.
But tho curve of her lip so imperious.
Such a mouth, sir, my dear father had;
Full of pnde, and to firm set and serious,
With a droop, though, at times, almost sad.
So when I say, "Anna, our daughter"
Do you see, sir, it bound? a bit wild.
Why? She looks her great-aunt's, her grand
father's. And her great-great-great-grandmother's child.

Naturally when a lady puts a nictel in tne
slot and stops on the scales she is anxious to
ascertain her lrro weight as near as may be.
A few days ago the Listener vas standing in
a hotel corridor where thero is ono of the
nickel devices when a party of ladies came
in. They were out making some purchases
nnd were loaded down vtith bundles of vari
ous sizes, shapes end descriptions. They
thought it would bo preit fun to have a
weighing bee then and there, and began to
fish deep down into their pockets for five
cent pieees. One of them, the first to get
upon tha scales, had a pound package of sala
ratus la her hand. "Why, Laura." exclaimed
one of the others, "you'll weigh a pound
more than you actually do; you've got thai
of me," exclaimed the woman on the scales.
And she slipped the salaratus into her pocket.
A puzzled look came over her face, and in an
injured tone she said: "I don't see that it
makes a bit of difference; the dd scales are
i not good for anything; I wgh just tht sasae
as i Qia Deiore. abb umc. xuut i.i.ucu
