Mrs. Simpson in Denver Tribune. If I were a playwright, girls, I should have a modern, fashionable hotel dining room at about 9 a. m. , say at Saratoga, for a stage setting, and just let the guests act out their characters naturally. It would be the society play of the season and make a hit. I am sure. It was too funny how some would act One would march in, holding himself so straight that I am sure he swallowed a ruler that morn rhg. Another would swing his arms and swagger along to his seat; a third, with his nose in the air, with a look of "I am lord of all I survey" on his ugly visage. But the ladies, girls! Do you remem ber Miss Floyd? She would turn from one side to the other as she followed the solemn head waiter to her seat, as if to say, "Are you looking me well over aad noticing my style?" Of course you saw Miss Ijfue stocking, with her brass door key dangling in her hands, going liip-i'op, as she solemnly walked the aisle with her arms full of periodicals you know she has a literary reputation to sustain. How I pitied her. She had hardly given her order for breakfast when she had to go to work. Girls, never try to play a role; it's awful hard work. "O- ovel Decoration. Did you ever hear of stained glass windows being made out of stones? Passing down Chestnut street the other morning I noticed some panels in the front dejorof a privato res idence wnich were filled with small, roug' pebbles, together with a number of polished shells, placed in the corners of some deco rative ornament composed of the translucent material known as opalescent or mosaic glass. As an architect, I was naturally inter ested in such a novel combination, and upon investigation discovered the origin of the work. It seems that the occupant of the house was down in Florida last year, and his children made a collection of whole bags of pebbles and shells, the former leing of the rudest description. Some weeks ago he was conversing with an eastern art man, who made the boast that he could construct a win dow out of almost anything. The pebbles and shells were accordingly given him, with the above result. The effect is certainly in teresting to the passer by and charming in its arrangement of colors when viewed from the Globe-Democrat. inside. 31. Pasteur and the rjydrophobia. Chicaaro Times. 1 M. Pasteur, who is now at Arbois, in the Jura, intends as soon as he returns to Paris to organize a service by means of which it will be possible to prevent mad ness in animals. M. Pasteur is said to have discovered a sure preventive against this terrible malady. Before going to the Jura he treated a little Alsatian boy, 9 years old. whose mother brought him to Paris from Alsace, where he had been bitten in both thighs, both legs, and in the hand. M. I asteur's treatment was perfectly successful. This is, it is said, the first time that the distinguished savant has apidied his method to a human beinc. THE HUMBLE RECORDS.

Bill Nye Itelatcs aIournful Incident in Journalistic Life. I have an aaaiatance who assists in editing a morning paper, but he does not believe in allowing his children to utterly forget him. He does not went his boys to think they are orphans just becau?3 he is not always at home. He 13 a man of very strong will and a strict disciplinarian. So he gets a holiday every two weeks in order to go homo and dc up liij punishing. One time ho found that his eldest or oldest son I do not kuowT which, because I am away from home without my library had violated the rules of the house hi a sad man ner. As near as I am able to come at the facts, the boy had taken a quart of corn and sewed a long thread through each kernel, showing great patience and perseverance in so doing. He had then tied the ends of the threads all together into &ne knot and scat tered the corn where a large flock of geese had been in tb9 habit of associating and pool ing for mutual profit and improvcmc0t. A man who came along that way about dusk said he saw about thirty geese standing around in a circle looking reproachfully at each other a::d trying to agree on some method by which they could all go home to gether without turning a part of their crowd wrong side out, while behind a high board tence tnere was a uoy who seemed to be en- jo3ing himself in it small way. The incident was reported to the boy's fath er, who eamo home and placed his son under a large dry goods box in the cellar, after which he piled three or four hundred pounds of coal on top of the inverted box. He then made a few remarks for the boy's good, which were followed by the smothered re mark: "Rats!1' from the inside of the box. After ordering that the box should not be disturbed until his return, my friend put on his coat and went back to his work. This was just as the returns began to re turn in the autumn of "SI. My friend did not go home for two weeks and forgot all about the boy until it came to do up his punishment for the fortnight. When the truth flashed over him he was filled with the keenest remorse, andwent home as soon as he had sent in the last proof, but when he went down the cellar he found the box empty and the following note written on it with a pencil: "Dear Paw do not weap for me i have went away from my happy homo whare i was onct so gay and freo'do 2ot assassinate mawbecu2 she Prido up the box with a stick Of cord wood yesterday and fed Me she left the bos So i could bust 4th i am gone Far Far Away do not weap for mo it is better for me and you to be Apart, ennyhow it is better for Me tc be apart i like bving Apart a Good deal better i think i writ take a ham and gar of Pre serves of which i am pashionately fond but i will Ilenumerate you some Day as heaven is my jug so No moar at Present from your proddiglo Son Henry." Bill ISTyo in New York World. A Banker's Shrewd Trick. It was in the days of the early railroad, when it was yet new; the days when the jour ney to New York was less'of a little jaunt than it is now; when greenbacks were not popular here. One summer morning a man, walking in happy and feverish haste, with wild excitement beaming all over his face, stepped into the office of a well known baiiker. "I want exchange for this on New York." "All right. What is it ?" The man looked fearfully around him and then brought out a packet. "It's 25,000 in greenbacks." "I guess I can do it! Going cast?" "Yes. I'm going to-morrow. I don't want to carry all this wit h me. Couldn't do it. Sure to get robbed. So give me a draf t. How much?" "Oh, seeing it's you, one per cent. $250." "It goes." So the banker made out a draft on New York and took the money. "You're going to-morrow, are you?" , "Yes.". "Would you mind taking a little parcel for me and handing it to my brother?" "Certainly. I'll do it with pleasure." The banker went into the other room and presently came back with the parcel. "Just put it in your valise, and don't lose it, will you?" "I'll take the best care of it." "Thank you. Good by. Pleasant trip." Arrived in New York, the Californian went to the address and delivered the pack age. Then he presented his draft. The man opened the package and gave him the identi cal 825,000 in greenbacks he had in San Fran cisco. He had carried them all the way him self. San Francisco Chronicle. Economical Art Students in Paris. But it is in clothing, rather than in food, that a student a:i bet economize. To begin with, fine feathers are out of place in a studio; old clothes are the only wear. Hence clothes that were held too shabby for Boston, New York and St. Louis, renew their youth for many seasons in the Parisian ateliers. When at length the wearer of these cher ished garments finds that they have lapsed into hopeless decay, and that, in deference to society, he must purchase new ones, he com monly chooses corduroy, a material here con secrated to the use of artists and day labor ers. 'he colored flannel shirt is in hish Judicial Wi?s and Gowns. Exchanged The supreme court of British Columbia isthe only place in America where the judges and lawyers wear the wigs and gowns of Knglish usage. favor among many American students, part ly for comfort, partly for economy and part ly in consequence of the contempt which any American who has lived under the bright in fluence of the Troy laundry must feel for tbe dingy lack lustre creations of the Parisian washerwoman. As for boots and shoes, they arc universally worn, sometimes too much so. Too high h polish is considered vulgar.especially for sculp tors. Many of t he bo3s do not disdain to wear sabot, when working on a winter day in a damp studio,or when sketching in the country. A student seldom makes a vulgar display of a whole hew suit of clothes. "Why," said one young philosopher, "I don't own an entire suit of good clothes; and if I did, I should consider it wild extravagance for a poor stu dent like me to put them on all at once, unless on a very swell occasion. If I have on my good hat, it's against my principles to wear my good shoes, for no one can appreciate them both at the same time." iJa;is Cor. B-oston Herald. 3&uriiSments. TEMPLE OF FASHION.
