September VI. Romance seems to full to the lot of the vege table sellers of Paris. The late King Leopold of Belgium fell in love with oue of them, made her a baroness and finally made hen his wife. Now an African piinc-e is about to renounce all claims to a throne in order to yain the hand of a young woman whose a few days ago grab his medals Apaches' as he did when thev tried to from his coat." At the recollection the pupils of her eyes dilated and admiration was stamp ed on every feature. ''Yi'S. indeed," she said, "he downed three Apaches. They thought a bomb had struck them," and she continued daily I est "relish. occupation is to arrange each morning ! The prince was walking along th her vegetables and fruit, in a tempting t streets display. The prince who has fallen a victim to the charms of the little vege table girl, .Marie Frayssinet, is no other than Koulery Onivers of Dahomey and son of Behanzin who was conquered by the French, lie is a stalwart, robust Afriean who first saw his affinity in her stall at the market Cateau d'eau. in 1 aris at nud-day wiion ne was attacked Ty several tough indivi duals who sought to tear his medals from his breast, but his army life had taught him the means of defense and in a moment all of them were sprawl ing on the ground.

The prince had to give up his rights as a future monarch. That was at last accomplished but another obstacle crossed his path.

Before commencing operations it is best to make a list of what is to be packed, taking good care to run through the whole of one's requirements for morning, afternoon, evening and night. It is not amusing to leave a particular waistband behind, or the skirt of a dress; indeed, to jeopardize a whole holiday of pleasure for want of a little practical management can scarcely be looked upon as wisdom. Having made the list, everything neetsary should be checked by it, and when all the gar ments are neatly folded up with plenty of tissue paper in the folds, then it is time to begin jutting various things in the boxes. Kkir should never be turned inside out, for they are ruined by the process. JCaturally enough the ideal manner in which to pack a dress is to have a skirt box. in which the skirt will lie full length without being turned over, but it does not hurt to double over the skirt if plenty of paper is used. Bodices should be stuffed in the sleeves with paper; they should be laid back down ward in the box. and then the sleeves and front may be folded into the best possible position. Nothing spoils clothes so badly as to be packed too tightly; it is ruination of such thin material as crepon, chiffon, and all the various transparencies of the day. LADY SERVANTS CLUB. OLDEST UN IN TIE WORLD Born in 1784, She Is Now the World's Oldest Inhabitant Without a Rival. The claim of Frau Dutkiewitz of Posen. born on February 2, lTS-l, to be the oldest woman in the world, is now contested by Mis. Baba Vasilka, who was born in May, 17S1, in the little Bul garian village of Bavels.o, where she has lived ever since, says the London Standard. The record of her birth is preserved in a neighboring monastery of the Orthedo.v (ireek faith. Baba Vasilka is the daughter of a peasant, and worked herself as a peasant until a comparatively recent date. For more -than a hundred years she regularly worked in the fields, according to the cntom of her country, where women are employed in all sorts of manual labor. When she was born Bulgaria was merely a province of the Turkish empire, and the entire population groaned under the tyranny of their Turkish rulers. She has seen innumerable wars and rebellions, massacres and atrocities. " political crimes and political tragedies. She recollects with perfect distinctness events that happened at the end of the eighteenth century; in fact, the events of her earlier life, up to the time when she attained the age of eighty, are far more distinctly impressed on her mind than the happenings of the last forty six years. Baba Vasilka lived through all the crises of her nation, and no.v rejoices tr know that Bulgaria is an independent kingdom. Her son. Todor, followcig the family tradition, has also worked in the fields as a peasant, nearly all his life, but he has alo taken part in -various wars and rebellions in the Balkan peninsula. He is not quite so fresh and vigorous as his mother, although he is still capable A club for "lady servants" is soon j. 1. 1 T 1 fTM.

Personally speaking, she continues, I dislike a large dressing bag and prefer either a roomy wide mouthed bag, with just a brush and comb, a glass, sponge or flannel, and a soft towel in it, or else one of the tiny dressing bags which hold one's keys, a book and jhe usual toilet requirements. Those who have to take a number of dresses with them must have two boxes, one about three or four feet long and another cabin trunk size to match. In PACKING UP FOR SHORT JOURNEY The English girl, on the whole, com pares rattier unfavorably" with the American as far as culture and its ap plication are concerned, says the Lou don Times. The country life led by the majority of English girls renders them somewhat dull as social factors, even it it gives tnem mat Knowieage of nature as a birthright which is de nied to the town dwelling American girl. The contrast, in fact, is between a product of nature with the most ar tificial of products of the most "up to date" community. By nature the American girl is colder and less emotional than the English girl, and her attitude toward men is one of unfailing good comradeship. Yet at the same time women are con sidered by the American men as a race apart, who must be placed upon a pedestal and propitiated by much at tention and many offerings. In a sense the chivalric instinct is almost too deeply implanted in the American man, and in many of his ideas concerning women he is. although he would be horrified to be told so, curiously me diaeval. And here again we come upon one of those deep lines of cleavage which di vide the American ideals of womanhood from the English, in England before marriage the man and the girl see comparatively little of each other, but after marriage the common life, is a necessity, and the woman must be pre pared to study his interests and to make them more or less her own. In America before marriage the man and the girl are excellent friends and com rades, enjoying much freedom in their intercourse; after marriage the two seem to lead separate lives. The man is wholly wrapped up in his business and the "woman when her work in the house is over devotes most of her en ergies to the pursuit of social pleas ures. In fact, they can not really be said to lead a common life. To a large extent this is the man's fault, for he, as a .rule, considers his wife such a delicate object that she is. so to speak, put under a glass case and all cares and worries and even rightful resxonsibilities are carefully kept from her. She takes no active part in the man's everyday life, for she is. often completely ignorant of his financial position and is absolutely dependent upon him for every penny. The idea of marriage settlement or a definite al lowance is abhorrent to the American mind, and yet, when all is said and done, the American woman, with all her independence, is the most depend ent of women, for is not he who holds the pursestrings, after all, the real master? The club rules permit members to invite male friends to dine at the club and enjoy a quiet rubber of bridge. Members will not be encouraged to talk shop. Bridge for small stakes may be indulged in. and country members on a visit to town will niol in tne emo all the luxuries of a London hotel. New Yolk Sun.

Book covers of brocade are pretty for the library table, and may be made by cutting the material a half-inch wider all around than is the volume to be covered. Make a satin lining of pre cisely the size of the book and overcast upon its edges the tnrned-in-sides of the brocade. K.bbon pockets, one third the widi h of the covers, are then sewn against the lining side, a silver or gold cording finishes the edges, and ribbon ties are attached to the side. If thf cover is of plain corded silk, it should bear an embroidered monogram. ECONOMY. order to make bevond .their her new stockings time, one clever ot butter and eupfuls ot snsrar.

If it does not, stop and think how long it has been since it has been cleaned or oiled. No doubt you refer with pride to the fact that it has not been in the watchmaker's hands for years; and when it finally does stop or loses time, you cannot understand why it is. No matter how fine or how expen sive the movement may be, after run ning constantly for one year or more, the oil becomes gummed and dry; after that time the pivots run on dry bearings, and then it is only a matter of time when the watch is ruined. Why not appoint us guardians of your watch? Twenty years of ex perience is at your service. H. F. WICHMAN 8 CO., LTD. Leading Jewelers.
