Young Men'« Chief Fault.
The fault with most young men is
that they are indolent and inclined to
■hlrk their duty. The man who always
tries to get off as easy as possible, and
when working for others does as little
as possible for the wages that he re
ceives, will never advance, and never
amount to anything In life. Every
young man should through all his busi
ness career constantly keep in mind
the parable of the faithful servant and
the reward given to him: "Because
thou hast been faithful in a very little,
have thou authority over ten cities."
How many young men nowadays pay
any heed to this? asks the New York
Weekly. They all want to be great, to
be successful, but they will not take
pains with little things and work their
way gradually to the top. They want
to Jump to the top rung of the ladder
right away. They all desire to be
come Vanderbilts or Rockefellers or
Morgans, but they throw away fool
ishly whatever money they earn be
cause they hope somo day to make It
In great quantities. A young man am
bitious to succeed in life should from
the very start make It clear for him
self that he must work hard and plod
along, every day accomplishing tha
duties belonging to that day, and if he
does this and leaves no duty undone,
he will be sure to find his reward,
first in a clear conscience, and ulti
mately in success, but he must not ex
pect success or wealth to drop down
into his lap without any effort on his
A Fair "Force."
Wlnt will the patient, suffering hus
bands and fathers say to the pending
scheme to make women actual police
men? The New York club which lias
the matter in hand is convinced that
the city of the future must have worn
an's help to "lead its future citizen
away from the door of the saloon and
induce him to fling away his half
smoked cigarette." The feminine po
licemen are to "exercise a general su
pervision over children in tlio streets
and to mingle with their games." It
remains to be seen, says Youth's
Companion, what will bo the effect on
Miss Constable of "mingling" with a
vigorous game of football in a vacant
lot. The gentle art of handball might
ba acquired by candidates for appoint
ment to the "force;" but what about
baseball? Could a policewoman hops
to "mingle" successfully unless she
could manage a three-base hit and a
home run? It is no wonder that the
discussion of these perplexing ques
tions was postponed by the club to a
later date—and then the meeting re
solved Itself Into a committee of the
whole to discuss the dross suitable for
the new officials. When the hour for
adjournment came several vital mat

Is a widower a married or a single
Tills question continually crops up
aud it is continually being answered
both ways. Certainly a widower is
married—he Is not a bachelor. That
is one answer. Certainly, on the other
hand, no matter what the man once
was, he is single now. That is tho
other answer. Tims In all match

Should Have Steady Nervea.
The nervous system of the musician
is often very sensitive and any habit
like coffee drinking may so upset tha
nerves as to make regular and neces
sary daily practise next to impossible.
"1 practise from seven to eight hours
a day and study Harmony two hours,"
writes a Mich, music student. "Last
September I was so nervous I could
only practise a few minutes at a time,
and mother said I would have to drop
my music for a year.
"This was terribly discouraging as
I couldn't bear the thought of losing
a whole year of study. Becoming con
vinced that my nervousness was
caused largely by coffee, and seeing
Postum - so highly spoken of, l de
cided I would test it for a while.
"Mother followed the directions
carefully and I thought I hal never
tasted such a delicious drink. We
drank Postum every morning instead
of coffee, and by November I felt more
like myself than for years, aud was
ready to resume my music.
"I now practise as usual, do my
studying and when my day's work Is
finished I am not any more nervous
than when I began.
T cannot too highly recommend
Postum to musicians who practise half
a day. My father is a physician and
recommends Fostum to his patients.
Words cannot express my appreciation
for tills most valuable health bever
age, and experience has proven its
superiority over all others." "There's
a Reason."

By Constance Smedley and Pearl Humphrey
Spratt was on his holiday, and con
sequent anarchy reigned in the serv
ants' hall. The cook took this oppor
tunity of becoming so insufferably in
solent that she had to be diseharged
at a moment's notice; and the parlor
maid went to bed with a gathered
foot. Tlie housemaid, the kitchen
maid, and the page foregathered riot
ously in the kitchen; and Mrs. Martin,
thanking the gods that tho stables
were not disorganized, drove off to
eatch the 10:20 on a servant-hunt in
town. Nelly, left alone, spent a de
licious morning, strumming "The
Cingalee," under the name of practic
ing; romping with the dogs "to give
them exercise;" reading "From Sea to
Sea" as "studying geography;" and
otherwise finding dutifut names for
pleasurable occupations.
At 1:30, somewhat rumpied after
a race with a fox-terrier, in which he
had had the courtesy to circle round
and round her by way of imposing on
himself a handicap, she sat down to a
meal of the ascetic kind, which always
results from domestic upheavals. Cold
ham, cocoa, and cheese were spread
before her, when, raising her eyes, she
beheld a wagonette loaded with people
driving up to the door. Nelly recog
nized (lie entire Gerney family, accom
panied by some visitors. When the
Assyrians came down like wolves on
the fold, they must have produced an
effect somewhat similar to the sensa
tion experienced by Nelly as she hur
ried upstairs into lier bedroom, and
hastily began to change her pink cot
ton morning frock for a more careful
costume. Elise had gone up to town
witli Mrs. Martin, and Nelly could find
nothing. She felt positive that tho
Gerneys, in the drawing-room beneath,
could hear her agitated footsteps and
the opening and shutting of many
drawers, and would inevitably con
clude that she was of the type of gjrl
who is unpresentably untidy in the
morning. She came to the belated con
clusion that it would have been more
polite, and in better taste, to have
gone down in her pink cotton, even
though it had an ink-spot on the cuff.
When she entered tlie drawing-room
at last, flushed and apologetic, and
wearing tlie wrong belt put. on crooked,
Mrs. Gerney and her party were full of
embarrassment. They were sure they
were putting her out, and were so
sorry. Mrs. Gerney, an old friend of
Mrs. Martin, but very slightly known
to Nelly, explained that, with their
visitors (here she interpolated some
mystic phrases which might hav-e
been introductions) they had driven
over to see the ruins of the castle, and
had meant to descend on Mrs. Martin
and ask for some lunch, knowing that
she kept open house. They had no
idea she was away, and could not
dream of staying and putting Nelly
To tills, of course, Nelly demurred.
They really must stay; it would give
her so much pleasure; and Mrs. Mar
tin would never forgive her if she let
them go away. "If you will excuse me
for a minute," she concluded, "1 will
just see that luncheon is served soon."
With these smiling courtesies on her
lips, and doubt and despair at her
heart, she raced to the servants' hall,
where the housemaid was tyrannously
presiding over the dinner of the
kitchen-maid and tlie page. "Dressed
in a little brief authority," she was
haughtily brandishing a carying-knife
above a roast loin of pork, when Nelly
appeared in the doorway, full of per
plexity. She glanced from the pork
to the hot sunshine outside, with a
rather dubious expression; but she
could And no alternative, and bade the
disappointed trio dine off cold ham
and servo their own succulent dish in
the dining-room. Then she Aed into
the garden for Aowers, Unding her
choice much restricted by the neces
sity for keeping out of sight of the
drawing-room windows.
in the meanwhile, at the end of a
protracted half-hour, her guests were
becoming stupefled with embarrass
ment and hunger. They felt that they
were an occurrence of much incon
venience to their Auttered hostess, but
they could not now leave any more
tha i Nelly could let them go, ardently
as she and they all desired it.
Things improved when they were
ushered into the dining-room. The
table looked charming, with the dow
el*« freshly gathered. Nelly sat at its
head, and endeavored to keep the con
vrrsution up to the standard usual at
Mrs. Martin's luncheons. When the
yt rk appeared, her efforts fell quite
fiat. It was hot, and the party were
tired with sightseeing, and just in tune
for sweetbreads or Balmon and mayon
naise, or some such dainty. To be
offered hot roast pork in such circura
stances waa very disappointing. Mrs.
Gerney, who had a horror of pork in
any form, sat with her plate steaming
before her. trying to inhale the fresh
ness of the late sweet pea across a
barrier of greasy vapor.
"Oh. Mrs. Gerney, 1 am afraid you
don't like it," said poor Neity. "I am
so sorry."
Mrs. Gerney made a heroic effort to
eat it, but her spirit failed her, and
she murmured that she was not
hungry, which was by now the simple
Nelly glanced round the table. The
men were manfully plodding through
theirs, but all the women were more or
less playing with it, and were conttn
itig themselves to bread and the pota
toes, which ivere fortunately cooked as
only dishes meant for kitchen con
sumption are usually cooked. A Atful
silence prevailed, broken only by po
lite voices referring to the ruins they
had seen, or the pretty country. Mrs.
Gerney saw Nelly's eyes All with tears
ol' vexation and embarrassment, and
she gripped her knife and fork with
tlie air of a grenadier. Nelly's little
separate apologies to each person in
turn made things worse, for they as
sured every one that she was watch
ing just how much they did or did
not eat. She was feeling very much
inclined to jump up and run away
when an inspiration came to her.
"Emily," she said to the sulky
housemaid, "bring up a bottle of the
The faces lightened somewhat. Mrs.
Martin's cellar was the bast in the
county. Nelly wondered why she had
not thought of this alleviation before.
But they experienced a relapse into
gloom when Emily departed with a
terriAc bang of the door, and Nelly
said in distress: "Oh, how rude of
lier! The fact is, our cook is away,
and this is the servants' dinner. But
Emily need not mind—there is plenty
of eold beef and ham for them."
"Oh, my dear," said poor Mrs.
Gerney, "why didn't you tell us you
were without a cook? Of course we
should not have dreamed of staying."
"But it is such a pleasure to have
you!" cried Nelly. "1 am so glad we
had anything to offer you. but I wish
it had been nicer. I am afraid you
don't like it at all."
"It is very nice indeed," protested
Mrs. Gerney; and a composite murmur
from tho others supported her polite
mendacity. The re-entrance of Emily,
bearing a dusty black bottle without a
napkin, turned the conversation into
happier channels. Nelly, w r ho never
drank wine in the middle of the day,
watched her guests raise their glasses
to their lips, and felt that, after all,
things were not so bad. She won
dered what Mrs. Martin would say
when she heard that a bottle of her
best Burgrundy had been used; but no
doubt she would see how matters had
been. Nelly only hoped that they
would not finish this bottle and oblige
her to seud for another. She knew
lie aunt's wine appealed to the mascu
line palate. She may have expressed
something of mingled hope and fear
in her face, for no one took a second
glass, in spite of her remark that
Emily could fetch another bottle if
they liked. Nelly's mind became fair
ly peaceful. The cold fruit-tart dis
appeared with a rapidity remarkable
in contrast to the leisurely vanishing
of the pork. But the black coffee,
which she had in an undertone re
quested the surly Emily to nake, was
so vile that Nelly herself said: "Don't
try to drink it!" and launched into fur
ther apologies.
She felt that she could have re
trieved the honor of the house if her
guests would have stayed at tea, but
they resisted all entreaties and left
immediately. Nelly accompanied them
to the door, with Anal pleas for in
dulgence; and Mrs. Gerney was at last
driven off, repeating mechanically
"Please don't mention it. So sorry to
have put you out."
When Mrs. Martin returned, she
found Nelly restless, tired, and long
ing to relate her trials of the day.
"I am glad you gave them the Bur
gundy," said Mrs. Martin, when she
had heard all, "though I think it would
have been better to give them a sort
of scratch meal. They would have un
derstood. Instead of attempting
proper luncheon, I should have had
the cold meat, even though there was
not much left, and made them one of
your nice omelets in the chafing-dish
It was very rash to try the black
coffee. By the way, did you apologize
"Oh, yes," said Nelly, earnestly
"over and over again; in fact, the
whole of the time. I assure you,
never stopped!"
"Oh, Nelly! That was the real mis
take!" rejoined her aunt. "Don't you
remember the deAnition that apology
is only egotism wrong side out? What
you ought to have done was to make
them feel that they were not putting
you out at all, but that you were all
having an impromptu picnic, and you
were enjoying it. Simplicity Is
trump-card in an emergency. But
am sure you did your best, aud Mrs
Gerney is an old friend, and will un
derstand. Now, as yon say there is
some Brugundy left, I will have
glass, and then go and rest till dinner
Nelly took up the wine to her aunt'
room, and was just coming away when
she was struck by Mrs. Martin's face
as she took a sip and then set dowm
the glass.
"What is it? Why don't you drink
it?" she asked.
"I will presently," hastily rejoined
Mrs. Martin.
But a horrible suspicion w'as dawn
ing on Nelly's mind.
"It is the Burgundy, isn't it?" ah«
Mrs. Martin rose and put her arm
jound her niece's shoulders.
"Don't worry about it, dear," she
«aid. "It's only another proof that you
wished them well. But Emily doesn't
know the cellar, and—well, it is cook
ing claret!"
