TO ENTER "SOCIETY." You must Have Treasure, Termpera ment and Tact. To enter paradise you had to be good and you had to be dead. To enter society you do not have to be either. On the contrary, though what you do have to be is harder to tell than it is to get there. But certain requisites may be mentioned. These are treasure, temperament and tact Treasure. which is the basis of all scrumptiousness, speaks for itself. Temperament is more complex. Tem perament is the art of holding your own on the subject of nothing at all with experts who have devoted their lives to the subject. That is clearly abnormal. Tact, while less unnatural, is more abstruse. Tact is the ability to put your vibrations into harmony with those of others about you. As pirants may be rich, righteous and ready, yet if they lack that ability, whatever their efforts, thef are no where. If they possess it, then, though they be nobodies, they have only to choose where they want to go and get there-generally speaking, that is, and provided they are not in a hurry. Taste Is very mercantile, besides being unbecoming.-Edgar Saltus in Broad way Magazine. A Memory Test. A professor of mnemonics had gone to lecture at or near Canterbury. After the lecture was finished he had to wait for his London train. It was a most comnfortiess day, and he re tired to an Inn for shelter and refresh ment. To pass the time he began to exhibit his feats of memory to the yokels in the inn parlor, and one and all were thunderstruck except the waiter. There is always one skeptic In every communion, whether of saints or sinners. Do what he would he could not mitigate the acrid smile of acid incredulity of that glorified potman! In the midst of one of his most difficult feats the whistle sound ed of the "only train to London to night!" and he rushed off to catch It. He caught it at the station, and his reputation caught it in the inn parlor, for the waiter-coming in with some ordered refreshments and finding him gone-pointed to the corner where he had been sittlng and exclaimed, "Sil ly 'umbug. he's forgot his umbrella!" The Rich Turkish Beggar. Beggars are never suppressed in Tur key. The story is told (and they say It is true) about an American lady who by mistake gave a beggar of Constantino ple a gold piece. The man had left his post when she returned, but one of his colleagues told her where he "resided." It was a fine house, and at the door was a servant, who politely informed the lady that "my master is dressing. He will be down soon." And then the well groomed beggar, dressed for din ner, appeared and gladly returned the gold piece, exclaiming in the mean while that such mistakes were highly embarrassing.-"Charities and Com mons." Force of Storm Waves. The average storm wave is thirty feet In height The highest storm waves ever measured were between forty-four and forty-eight feet high. The gigantic force of storm waves is shown by the fact that at Skerryvore lighthouse, off the west coast of Scot land, a mass of rock weighing five and a half tons was once hurled to a height of seventy-two feet above the sea lev el, while a mass weighing thirteen and a half tons was torn from a cliff seven ty-four feet high.-Pall Mall Gazette.

It was an occasion of great rejoicing, and everybody, big and little, old and young. turned out to see the fun. All business for the time was suspended. Even the courts ad journed for the event. A large num ber of the citizens of all classes, grave and gay, mounted on fast horses, rode out some miles on the line to meet the incoming wonder. ."The walting was not long. The lit tle rider upon his blooded charger, un der whip and spur, came down upon them like a meteor, but made not the slightest halt to greet his many visit ors. Then began a race of all that waiting throng over the stretch back to the city, the like of which has never been seen. It may have been rivaled in speed and confusion by some of the cavalry disasters during the war that presently followed, but the peaceful people of Sacramento, I am sure, never beheld anything of the kind before or afterward. "The whole cavalcade, shouting and cheering, some waving banners and bareheaded, riding at the top of their speed, dashing down J street, might have been taken, had it occurr.ed on the plains, for a band of wild Co manches, but the 'little mail carrier paid no attention to them and kept In the lead." A ROMANCE IN TIN. One. Man's Fortune From the Price of a- Pair of Shoes. Some years ago a man who had started In business in Tasmania found that he could not meet his engage ments and was compelled to call a meeting of his creditors. Among his assets were a number of Mount Birschoff tin mine shares, which were regarded as worthless. It was the first tin mine discovered in Tasmania, and the output was not as heavy as the prospectus declared It would be. The shares dropped In yalue, and when the debtor offered them to his creditors the latter refused to touch them. Among the creditors was a poor shoemaker who had supplied the man with a pair of shoes. He offered to take the shares in payment of his debt. No one raised any objection, and he took the shares, saying, "They may turn out well some day." Five years later, under proper man agement, the mine developed into a valuable property. It was a veritable mountain of tin, and the shaires sprang up to an astonishing point Eventualy the metal w "cornered" by a French syndicate, and, the shares reaching a fabulous price, the once indigent shoemaker sold out and real ized a fortune. The money was wisely Invested, and now he is in the enjoyment of an In come of several thousands a year de rived from the payment for a pam "f shoes valued at $3.-London Telegraph. Absolute Obesity.

"Dad," queried one of the youngsters, "can a man be absolutely good?" "No," replied the father. "Dad," put in another youngster, "can a man be absolutely bad?" "No." "Papa," ventured the third child, al girl, "can a man be absolutely fat?"' Whereupon father fied incontinently. -Philadelphia Ledger. Making Hubby Appreciative. A doctor tells of a note he received from a woman saying that her hus band, who was about to make him a professional call, found constant fault with the dinner she prepared for him. She appealed to the physician for aid. The doctor examined his patient, who had a slight attack of indigestion, and told him to cut out lunches, to eat nothing but a slice of toast and a cup of tea. The scheme worked excellent ly. Of course hubby returns home in the evening, eats everything in sight and votes his wife's cooking even bet ter than mother used to make.-Bos ton Record.
