In Womankind. y business men * MflU! and women and their em ployes in the down-town districts of all largfe cities. The Chicago Record gives the following description of the new “help yourself* restaurants at which many of Chicago's millionaires mingle freely with the struggling young clerks and help themselves to a modest lunch of baked beans or beef stew, not because it is cheap, but because It is quick and the loss of the midday hours means loss of fortune eventually. It has been said that among people of leisure nnd good form the daily lunch eon amounts to a sacrament. In the business hurrah of darkest Chicago the lunch, not luncheon, is more like the operation of loading n gun. The am munition is put in, with a wad of des sert on top, and in ten minutes the man who is going to be a millionaire in less than ten years is hack at his desk, loaded and pointed at his work, bless ing the man who Invented quick-servico restaurants and pepsin. The first restaurant which allowed the customers to come in and simply lay hold on what they wanted was called a “cafetlere.” Another opened os a “enfetara." and the third an nounced itself on the brass sign as a “cafeterion." With the growth of the system new and startling words have been coined. A common term among the patrons is “cafetarnra.” The cafetiores, which were opened primarily to catch the patronage of those who wished to economize on their dally expenditure for lunch, have drawn heavily upon restaurants even of the better class. There are cafctiercs along La Salle street which are patronized each day by millionaires, the heads of great business concerns, prominent lawyers and the like. These men evidently have a liking for a system which per mits them to expedite the business of eating. Furthermore, the women employed clown town have taken kindly to the “help-yourself” places and may be found in the noonday rush. The way to find out about one of these cafetiores is to accompany the business man to luncheon—that is, if you are willing to run and keep pace with him. The restaurant is in a base ment, and as ho dives down the stair way, in company with other men who are equally in a hurry, he glances at the placard which is posted each day beside the door. This placard an nounces the bill of fare for the day and the prices for the various dishes: Soup, puree of peas So Baked white fish 15c Beef, ala mode jS C Chipped beef In cream Jsc Corn fritters and bacon 15c Baked l>ean* and brown bread 10c Ktc.. etc., etc. He who runs may read, and the busi ness man with one sweeping review of the bill of fare probably decides just what he shall want, thus saving time, it is a beautiful arrangement. As lie passes into the big room, the tables of w hich arc already becoming crowded, he grabs a Japanese napkin off a convenient hook and hurries to fall into line. es. there is a line filing by the long counter, behind which are the girls, with their white aprons and caps, busily dishing out from ttie shiny pans and pots. Tlie bill of fare is printed on the posters against the wall, and the cus tomer, as he waits a moment or two in the line, has time to look at the bill again nnd make up his mind. Suppose the business man fancies ragout of beef. The young woman pate it on the plate and holds the plate toward him almost before the words are out of his mouth. She may pro nounce the word as if it were a com bination of the words "rag” and “out,” but the business man gets his beef, which is the necessary thing, and with it on the plate are two slices of bread Joined together in butter and a hot roll freshly buttered. Holding hip loaded plate advanced in both hadda and with his elbows thrown out so as to prevent a sudden Jolt from either side, he moves along the counter to the cofi a girl, who is a mind-reader, That is, she has bis taa§ * already drawn with or without WWb, Ik WfutMi) li.q Ivftdm) |.is tv ! on his left hand, and with the right be takes from a large tureen as many lumps of sugar as habit has prescribed for him and drops them into the coffee. Then he lifts the cup of coffee (no saucer* in his right hand, and, while giving a correct imitation of an equili. brist, lie moves away to find a place at a table. The eafetiere tables are rather low, and each has an elevated rack along the middle of it. On this rack are knives, forks and spoons in wire trays, salt, pepper, catsup, horseradish, pow dered sugar, Worcestershire sauce and a few other incidentals, t’une-seated stools take the place of chairs. As soon as the business man finds elbow room at one of the tables he deposits his plate and cup and napkin, thus preempting the space, and moves up a stool. If he wishes a glass of water he walks over to the faucet and fills a glass taken from the rack under neath. Going hack to his place at the table, ho takes knife, fork and spoon from the trays, and he is ready to begin. Time since he entered the place— probably less than a minute. Under tins system it is the same as if there were a waiter for every customer. Suppose that, having partaken of his ragout the business man wishes des sert. On the main serving counter are saucers already filled with fruit and dumplings. There are also Warm pud dings which may be had for the asking. The pastry exhibits are <Tr. shelves along the wall. These shelves are re ally the pic bargain counters. • ; Anything on Tms ; ; shelf, to. : • - i “Anything” may be a piece of pie, n frosted cake, two chocolate eclairs, two tarts or two fancy puffs. This is where the business man loses a mo ment or two in the thoughtful consid eration of whether mince pie with a bit of cheese is preferable to charlotte russe. However, he makes a selection ami goes hack to his place, only to find that one of the girls has “cleaned up” after him and a man with a plate of beans has grabbed tile stool. But he finds another place and eats his pie. He goes to the desk of the cashier on his way out. Beside the cashier's desk is a printed bill of fare, and by this he checks up! Ragout.of beef, fifteen cents; coffee, five cents; pie, five cents; total, twen ty-five cents. Then if he is an honest man he draws a check out of the pigeon hole marked “twenty-five” and hands it to the cashier with his money, and the sacrament of luncheon is at an end. Hardly any dish in a eafetiere costs more than fifteen cents, and for plain food, such as hash or beans, the charge is only ten cents. As the average lunch consists of fish and meat, with dessert and coffee, the checks are mostly of the twenty, twenty-five or thirty kind. As tlie cafetierc can feed a customer and get him away in half the time re quired by an ordinary restaurant, as more people can be accommodated in the same space and tlie expense of waiters is entirely done away with, and the help, all except the chef, it, something ok an equilibrist. paid low wages, it can be seen with good trade the business is necessarily profitable. Already, however, the plan has been overworked in some sections of the city. The trade must he large while it lasts, as it all comes between the hours of eleven and three. Only one or two of the "help-yourSclf” places are open at six o'clock, and they have learned that people will not go to a eafetiere for dinner. The gentleman who at 12:30 o'clock pawed desperately to get his “chipped beef in cream, with potatoes on the side,” may be at 0:30 o’clock dining in state at his own home, calm and dig nified, in’evening dress, and never “let ting on" that he ever heard of a “help yourself” place where salmi of duck with olives may be procured for the ridiculously low price of fifteen cents. One embarrassing thing about the eafetiere is that every customer is al lowed to pick out his own check and the house doesn't watch him to see if he is honest. This is all very well if the check hap pens to he ordinarily large, but when it is quite small the customer is an noyed. , A man who had finished his lunrfi and was going away mot a friend on the stairway and tlie friend insisted on him returning. "I want to talk to you,” said he. “Come and sit with me, even if you don't eat.” So the man went in again and sat with his friend. He drank a cup of cof fee merely to make a show of being em ployed. When he started to go out he fumbled at the check box and hesitated as he pulled out a five-eent check. “I was in here once before and I just came back with my friend here and drunk a cup of coffee.” The woman cashier nodded in a busi nesslike way and pushed back his change. “1 thought I'd explain,” he said sheepishly. She nodded again and he passed out convinced that she believed him to he a low, cheap swindler, lint she knew all the time that he was telling the truth. The occasional “heat" never attempts any explanations. Ho passes over his ten-cent piece in an off-hand way and strolls out with his forty cents’ worth of lunch.

Nervous Troubles End In St. Vi tus' Dance. Physician* Powerless—The Story Tola bj the Child's Mother. [Prom ta* Utporter, Somerset. Kjr.J Among the foot hills of the Oumberlan and Mountains, near the town of Flat Itock is the happy homo of Janies McPherron. Four months ago the daughter of the fam ily, a happy girl of sixteen, was stricken with Bt. Vitus’ dance. The loading physi cians were consulted but without avail, ghe grew pale and thin under the terrible nerv ous strain and was fast losing her mental powers. In fact the thought of placing her in an asylum was seriously considered. Her case has been so widely talked about that the report of her cure was like modernizing a miracle of old. To a reporter who visited the home the mother said: “Yes, the reports of my daughter's sick-’ ness and cure are true as you hear them. Her a filiation grew into HI. Vitus’ dance from an aggravated form of weakness and nervous trouble )>eculiar to her sex. Every source of help was followed to the end, but it seemed that physicians and medicine were powerless. Day by day she grew worse un til wo despaired of her life. At times she al-. most went intoconvulsions. She got so that wo had to watch her to keep her from wan dering away and you can imagiue the care she was. “About the time when our misery jra* greatest and all ho|>o had fled, X read of another case, almost similar, that had been cured by a medicine known as Dr. Williams* Pink Pills. Almostindesperationl secured some of the pills ami from that day on the wonderful work of restoration commenced; the nervousness loft, her cheeks grew bright with the color of health, she gained flesh and grew strong both mentally and physi cally until to-day she is the very picture of good health and happiness. “It is no wonder that I speak in glowing terms of Pink Pills to every ailing person I meet. They saved my daughter’s life and I am grateful.” The foregoing is but one of many wonder ful cures that have been credited to Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Palo People. In many cases the reported cures have been investigated by the loading newspapers and verified in every possible manner. Their fame has spread to the far ends of civiliza tion and there is hardly a drug store in this country or abroad where they cannot bo found. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale People are now given to the public as nu unfailing blood builder and nerve restorer, curing all forms of weakness arising from a watery condition of the blood or shattered nerves. The pills are sold by all dealers, or will bo sent post paid on receipt of price (50 cents a box, or six boxes for t2.so—thev are never sold in bulk or by the 100) by addressing Dr. Wifiiams’ Medicine Company, Schenectady.

The importance of the queen's life to the nation renders it necessary that every precaution should l>e taken to avert any possibility of a collision when she is travelling ou the railway. The question has been most thoroughly gone into by her trusted private secre tary, Sir Henry Ponsonby, with the as sistance of the responsible managers of the various lines over which her majesty travels in the course of her journeys, and an elaborate sys tem, has been evolved which prac tically precludes any possibility °f an accident, provided the orders issued to the subordinates on the railway are properly carried out and no gross error is committed. The system is now stereotyped, but, for all that, whenever the queen signifies her intention of using the railway, Sir Henry Ponsonby puts himself iii com munication with the managers of the line concerned several days before hand, and the private wire at the pal ace is kept in.active employment up to the very moment when her majesty has started from the palace. This event is chronicled by wire to the sta tion, and from the moment of her maj esty’s arrival there the responsibility of her safety rests with the manager and his assistants. That the companies are fully con scious of the responsibility placed on them may be gathered from their scheme of precautions. All traffic is slopped on the line and the points are locked in front of the royal train for a certain period before its actual arrival at any one spot, and this period is reg ulated by telegraphic advices from va rious stations announcing the approach of the train. The result is that the line, is entirely free, all traffic being stopped at certain stations ahead and run into sidings until the, royal train has actually passed. Moreover, a pilot engine runs in front of the royal train to clear the way, so that if any" extraordi nary accident any traffic should have escaped on to the line or any obstacle should have been placed there by malicious design, the pilot engine will act as a scout, either to stop and turn back the vagrant engine or to bring the royal procession behind to an im mediate standstill by timely signals. An additional precaution for the se curity of the line itself is found in the guard of pointsmen and signalmen who are posted within signal distance of one another, and whose duty it is to notify from hand to hand on the one side that the line is free within their control, and on the other that the royal train is approaching. Supposing, therefore, that some runaway train escaped the em bargo laid at the junctions, and the pilot engine was rendered helpless by running off the line, the safely of the queen would still be se cure by the rule that no signalman is to allow the royal train to pass his box unless it has been signaled from the box immediately ahead of him that the line is clear. Some fifty copies of a complete way book, containing full particulars with regard to the times of starting, pass ing or arriving at stations, tho list of pawengerii, together with tt shaded <U> a pram of the gradients, are printed and distributed among the royal otH ciois of the suite and railway offi cials in charge of the train. A special edition of this, of a less comprehensive character, is printed in purple on satin, adorned with the royal arms and an embossed border of gold for the use of the queen and the royal family, so that at any time members of the party, by com paring a watch with the way book, can ascertain exactly where they are, what will be the . next station and every detail of importance. There is, further, a minute plan of the train with measurements, showing the exact number and dimensions of the car riages and the names of the occupants, so that everybody can known exactly where everyone else ought to be. —St. James' Gazette. NAPOLEON AND LOVE. He Could Despise llie I’asslon and Yet Hea der Himself Its Willing Slave. Men have not forgotten that Rona parte once denounced love ns o hurtful passion from which God should protect His creatures; and they have for this, among oilier reasons, pronounced him incapable of disinterested affection. Hut it is also true that he likewise de nounced liuttafnoco for having, among other crimes committed by him, "mar ried to extend his influence;" and we are forced to ask which of the two sen timents is genuine and characteristic. Probably both and neither, according to the mood of the man. Outward ca price is, in great natures, often the mask of inward persistency, especially among the unprincipled who suit their language to their present purpose, in fine disdain of commonplace consist ency. The primitive Corsican was both rude and gentle, easily moved to tears at one time, insensate at another; selfish at one moment, lavish at another; and yet lie had a consistent character. Al though disliking in later life to be called a Corsican, Napoleon was nev ertheless typical of his race; he could despise love, yet render himself its willing slave; he was fierce and dicta torial, yet, as Josephine said, "ten derer and weaker than anybody dream ed." And thus it was in the matter of his marriage; there were elements in it of romantic, abandoned passion, but likewise of shrewd, calculating selfish ness. In his callow youth his relations to the other sex had been either child ish.morbid, or immoral. During hjsear liest man hood he had appeared like one who desired the training rather than the substance of gallantry. Asa Ja cobin he sought such support as he could find in the good will of the wom en related to men in poworgas a French patriot lie put forth strenuous efforts to secure an intluential alliance through matrimony, and it is certain that lie made advances for the hand of the rich and beautiful Desiree Clary. He ap pears to have addressed Mine. Permon, whose fortune, despite her advanced age, would have been a great relief to his destitution. Refused by both, lie was in a disordered and desperate emo tional state until military and political success gave him sufficient self-confi dence to try once more.—Prof. Sloane, in Century. VIA DOLOROSA. The ICoatl Traversed hy Jchiiii on Ilia Way to C'wlvar/. It is not necessary to tell here the rest of the awful story. They mocked, buffeted, insulted and abused Him. A robber was preferred to Him, and was released. And so they led Him out and crucified Him. The Via Dolorosa, the way He trod when He curried the cross, is noj a street, but a continuation of sections of streets marked by the faithful, no body knows how many years ago, with the fourteen stations of the church of Koine. More than once we followed Him from the so-called chapel of the scout-aging to the supposed place of crucifixion. Everything, in the course of ages, has been al tered; the level of the roadway, if it is the roadway, has undoubtedly been raised many feet: of all the traditions of Jerusalem the present Via Dolorosa is the most vague and the most im probable; but nevertheless I followed his footsteps; I put my shoulder in the hole where his shoulder is supposed to have rested; 1 placed my hand upon the alleged prints of his hand when the weight of the free was too great for him and he fell against the wall, and, for the lime, I believed it all. It may be all tradition, and all false; but to a man brought up on the teachings of the New Testament as accepted by a good father and a good mother, it was awfully real. And I believed It all! The so-called calvary and tomb, and every sacred spot connected with the awful events of the crucifixion, are con tained under one vast, irregular roof, in a series of churches and chapels called the Church of the Holy Sepul chre. Within its precincts no Jews are admitted, and no Jew probably ever seeks or cares tor admission. The Greeks, the Copts, the Syrians, the Roman Catholics, have each their own particular place of worship, and the Protestants have none at all. Thelion and lamb live not in harmony together here, and the disciples of the Prince of Peace are kept from violent warfare with eacli other only by the presence of an armed Mohammedan guards in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre it self.
