the town and then to Tustin and
Orange. > .
At 5 o'clock the carriages brought up
in front of the Lacy block, where a
spread had been prepared for the dele
gates. After lunch they were driven to
the Santa Fe depot, where they took

Power of the Imagination.
"I never was more firmly convinced of
the power of imagination," said a man,
"than I was by something that happened
to me on tho occasion of a visit to a friend.
It had been an extremely hot day, and
when 1 went to bed at night the heat
seemed almost insupportable. It seemed
to me that if I should open the door from
my room into tho hall it would make a
little circulation und make the air more
comfortable, and I felt safe in doing this
because I am an early risor, and I knew
I could get the door shut before any
body was stirring in the morning. So I
opened the door, with the pleasant result
that I had anticipated, and when I went
to close it in the morning I found that I
had opened not the door into the hall,
but tho door into a closet."—New York

The Beauty at Wrinkles.
And now an authority inveighs against
steaming the face as a preventive against
wrinkles, alleging that this is tho swift
est and surest process by which to pro
duce them. "The second layer of tho
skin becomes attenuated, and there is a
decrease in bulk of the superficial lay
ers," is the technical explanation which
the laity will not understand and does
not need to. The simple fact is suffi
cient. But why should wrinkles be such
a red rag to every woman? They must
inevitably come if one lives long enough,
and barring the suppression of the habit
of frowning and the avoidance of dan
gerous cosmetics it seems useless to fight
Time was when we were taught that
they were the linos of character, and
time is when character, as shining forth
in the expression of the face, makes tho
wrinkles forgotten. Watch the soul be
hind the wrinkles. Take as much care
of that as you strive to of the outer layer
of cuticle, which is its external sem
blance, and the wrinkles will be lost or
overlooked in the serene and steady eye
and quiet but smiling mouth. "Think
lofty things," says a preacher, "and the
countenance will show the thoughts-

The Natives Had Scruples.
Once an amusing story was told me
by a South sea trader, writes Mrs. Rob
ert Louis Stevenson. Ho had been in the
habit of carrying all sorts of tinned
meats, which the natives bought with
avidity. Each tin was branded with a
colored picture—a cow for beef, a sheep
for mutton and a fish for sardines.
It happened that the firm who fur
nished the mutton thought it a good
plan to change their labels, that their
goods might be more easily distinguished
from others. The mark chosen was a
red dragon.
The natives came with their copra to
trade as usual. The new tins were
shown them, but they recoiled with hor
ror and gave the trader to understand
that they had had some religious in
struction and were not to be deluded in
to eating tinned devil.
The trader was forced to eat his stock
of mntton himself, for riot a native could
be persuaded to touch the accursed
"More Haste, Worse Speed."
Of all the "tournaments" I ever saw,
one among the "dairy maids"'at an agri
cultural show was perhaps the last to
associate itself with that heroic proced
ure which such a word suggests. There
were about 40 of them armed with
"churns" and started at the same mo
ment to make butter against time. Each
came provided with a watch, and the
temptation was almost irresistable to
turn the handle of the machine as quick
ly as possible. But no, butter must be
"humored," not driven. The silent lists
were filled with the provokingly delib
erate "flip, flop" of 40 churns. One of
the slowest combatants won the race. I
never realized more plainly that "most
haste is worst speed."—Cornhill Mag

A Thimble For Mrs. Palmer.
Mrs. Potter Palmer is to have a thim
ble when the fair is over. Women look
at it reposing in its crystal and silver
case and ask one another, "What will
she do with it?" It is a gold thimble,
beautifully made and set with 40 dia
monds around the rim. The thimble
bears a design of Machinery hall with
"World's Columbian Exposition, 1492
--1892" in relief.
There are thimbles in Machinery hall
which aro studded with pearls, tur
quoises, emeralds, rubies, diamonds and
other precious stones. Some aro silver
overlaid with gold, some are hand chased,
some are of uniquo designs which cost
fIOO or more. It would seem that de
signs and decorations were limited when
applied to thimbles, but women can take
their pick of 103 different styles in gold
and silver and pay all the way from 60
cents to $150 for a "thumb bell," as the
old German called the thimble when ha
invented it years and years ago. In the
German section of the Manufactures
building are thimbles capped with onyx,
but Americans prefer a silver thimble
which has been well knurled.—Chicago
A Literary Salad.
A well known society woman, who
possesses a great fondness for and famil
iarity with books, has invented a very
amusing game that promises to gain
much popularity at her own and other
house parties this fall. Sho calls it a
"literary salad." The method of play
ing is at once simple and ingenious.
Tiny leaves of green crinkled paper are
attached to little Japanese toothpicks.
Around those are written quotations
more or less familiar. Tho toothpicks
aro then stuck into caramels, thus ena
bling the leaves to retuiu a perpendicu
lar position. The salad thus arranged is
placed in a largo bowl. The participants
draw leaves in succession, and the one
guessing tho origin of the greatest num
ber of quotations receives a prize in the
form of a book, a silver trinket or a
piece of bric-a-brac.
The game has proved most entertain
ing. One may sets at once tho possibili
ties it possesses hot h from an intellectual
and social standpoint. — Philadelphia
Lady Florence Dixie.
Lady Florence Dixie, who is credited
with the intention of starting a new
woman's paper in England, is a sister of
tho Marquis of Queonsberry and one of
the most versatile women of tho day.
While yet a girl sho had excited the en
thusiastic admiration of "the shires,"
where riding is carried to a fine art, by
her straight and intrepid going, and in
the saddle she has journeyed over the
best part of Europe, has explored the
wilds of Patagonia and wont through
the Boer campaign early in the eighties
as "special" for The Morning Post. Sho
has written a novel, is somewhat of a
poetess and has appeared ou tho plat
form to plead far "the rights" of tier sex.
Furthermore, sho has a devoted husband
and a delightful home—The Fishery, at
Windsor —and two handsome boys. Yet
one thing more, she has a strange power
over animals of ail sorts, has broken in
the most fiery of steeds and has made
domestic pets of a jaguar and even a
tierer. —Exchange,

Catarrh of the Head, Throat
and Stomach
Yield to the New Method of Treat
The marked efficiency of toe new method of
treatment In general catarrhal derangement
and poisoning of the entire system U aptly
illustrated In the case of Miss B. Qondeo, of
831 south Lot Angeles Street, who says:
■ /^^pSSgqaeaßßMySss^^SSbsba,
"Forahout eight years I had been troubled
with chronic catarrh, but the past two years it
became bo much worse that life was almost a
burden to me,
"I most always got np In the morning with a
dull h;aaache, mostly above the eyes. My
hearing was impaired; sometimes roaring in
en, nustrlls were stopped up, muoous dropped
into my throat, and a watery discharge from
nose, which was very annoying. The past
year I had a very annoying cough, some pains
through tbu chest and distress in stomach.
Also suffered with lost ot sleep at night, and a
tired feeling during tbe day.
' Beinp advised by friends, i decided to try
Dr. Uii Mouco and associated. Now I haye
nothing to complain of: really, I feel like my
self again, Have no headacnes, sleep splen
didly, and no more trouble with my stomach.
What more can I say—except to recommend all
suflcrers to Dr. De Monco and associates."
