When Pounced Upon by Hie Majesty's General, Who Cloakad His Mission In Mystery, the Knight of the Shears Thought His Time Had Come. By special permission of the court authorities an amusing accouut is pub lished of the circumstances attending the ordering of a military uuform by the czar from a little tailor in the Crimea, Khaim Kurichkess by name, who lived at Simferopol, the headquar ters of the Crimeau dragoons. When the imperial family came to Llvidai, and some days before the an nual fete of the Crimean dragoons, the czar told the colonel that he had in store a gift for him and the regiment— the czarina had consented to become their chief. His majesty added: "I shall be there when you and your of ficers are presented to the empress and shall wear your uniform. The only thing is. I believe I haven't the uniform of the regiment. But that doesn't matter, there is time, if you hurry, to have oue made. You seem to have an excellent tailor. Your uni form fits beautifully. Whonnade it?'' The colonel gave the nameiof Kuricb kess, whereupon his majesty asked him to arrange that Kurichkess should make a uniform for himself, adding, smiling, "Tell him to do his best and to turn it out as well as yours." There Is next given a seriocomic de scription of the alarm occasioned among the Kurichkess household, con sisting of father, mother and nine chil dren, when a handsome motorcar stop ped outside their door and a cloaked general officer descended. The general said in staccato sen ! teuces: "You must come with me. I Don't be frightened. You'll know | later where I'm taking you. I can't | leave without you. We'Ve lost much time already. Get dressed quickly." The tailor obeyed, went with his cap tor and was absent for four days. Mme. Kurichkess was doubtful wheth er she was a wife or a widow. Eventually the tailor turned up safe and recounted his adventures. The drive with the geueral had lasted two hours and a half. During the whole journey the general did not address a single word to him. When they reach ed their destination. Yalta, all he said | was. "Khaim Kurichkess, get out and follow me." He was assured that he need not be alarmed; he would be provided with lodging and with food, and the next day he would be told why he had been brought to Yalta and what he had to j do. He was told he need not try to ! escape, as he would be watched. His fears were dissipated when a colonel entered the room, and the "gen- j eral of generals" addressed him to the j i following effect: "Great good fortune has fallen upon 1 i y° u - His majesty the emperor wishes I you to make for him a uniform of the | ' Crimean dragoons. But it must be as ! good as that of the colonel of the regi ! nieut. I hope you won't make a mess of it. I will take you at ouce to the ' i palace, where you will be admitted to | the czar's study to see his majesty's figure." When the "general of generals" took Kurichkess to the czar's study his maj esty was standing reading a document "'1th his back to the door. Some min utes elapsed before he turned around, In the meantime Kurichkess was root ed to the floor. The czar on realizing his presence faced him and said: "Oh, you are here already! You are Khaim Kurichkess, the tailor. I want you to make me a uniform of the Crimean dragoons. Do your best an(Kee that it is a good fit. Get to work at once." Kurichkess* went ou to describe bow God had helped him in bis work and how satisfied the czar had been with the uniform and thanked him for it. Kurichkess refused to accept any thing in payment, but "his" general in sisted that, according to law, he was obliged to receive 50 rubles for his expenses. Moreover, the general added, the minister of the court was aware that Kurichkess was In debt, and he gave the tailor an envelope containing 300 rubles from the minister to dis charge his obligations. Kurichkess was driven back in a motor to Simferopol, and some days later an imperial messenger brought to his shop a case containing a gold ivatch and chain. The double eagle »vas engraved on the watch, which also bore the inscription. "To Khaim Ku richkess for Zeal."—Argos. A Long Stay. Belle Passay—I'm tired of being pur sued for my money.

I at tracted his attention, therefore, with motion of my forefinger and indicated the pile of coins with a wave of my hand, which was meant to say 'What is this you have given me?' The wait er bent gracefully forward, scooped up my change with a practiced hand and with a polite *1 thank you, sir.' moved swiftly away. Next time I'll give the language of signs a miss."
