Not to Be Deceived.
“Jobu.” she asked after she bad fin ished packing her trunk, -will you re member to water the flowers in the porch boxes every day V” “Yes. dear. I’ll see that they are properly moistened regularly.” “And the rubber plant in the dining room. You know it will have to be sprayed about Jhree times a week.” "I’ll remember it.” “I’m afraid you'll forget the canary and let the poor little thing starve.” "Don’t worry about the bird. dear. I’ll take good care of him.” “But I feel sure you’ll forget about keeping the curtains drawn so that things won't all be faded out when l get back.” "Don’t give yourself a moment’s un easiness about the curtains. I’ll keep the house as dark as a tunnel.” “John, I’m not going. You have some reason for being anxious to get rid of me.”—Chicago Record-Herald. The Druids. The Druids were evidently of very great antiquity, for there cannot be much doubt that it was one of their customs that Virgil had in mind when he wrote in the "Aeneid.” vi. 142. that the “only means of access for a living mortal to the world of spirits was the carrying of a golden twig which grew in a dark and thick grove.” The re semblance of the story to the Druidical rite is perfect. The Druids practiced their rites in dark groves. If a mis tletoe was discovered growing upon an oak a priest severed it with a knife, and a festival was held under the tree at which two milk white bulls were offered as a sacrifice. This was a sac rifice to the sun god. and the mistletoe, from its pale greenish yellow tint, was regarded as a kind of vegetable gold and was accordingly looked upon as being a fit offering to the sun.—New York American. Catching Speed. Two wild eyed horses, wearing dilap idated harness and drawing a battered delivery wagon, stopped at the stable door. “Just had a runaway!” panted the driver. “Then, for heaven’s sake, don’t put those horses in with the other horses that will soon go out ou a trip.” said the head hostler. “If you do they’ll run away too They always do. Be fore I learned as much about horses as 1 know now 1 brought on a dozen runaways by doing that fool trick. The horses that have just been on a spree are still worked up to fever pitch, the rest of the horses catch the spirit of the devil from them, and as soon as they get out they take a header.”—New York Times. Deep Mourning. The manager of the theater racked his brain in vain. “We must do something,” he repeat ed bitterly. “People will expect ns to do something to show respect to the proprietor now that he is dead.” “Shall we close for the night of the funeral?” suggested the assistant stage manager. “With this business? You’re a fool, laddie, a fool. No; put the chorus in black stockings ” And it was even so.—Sporting Times. THIN MILK How can the baby grow strong if the nursing mother is pale and delicate?

Some of the very smartest bathing (Suits are of black taffeta, the effective contrast of sapphire Jblue or emerald green being sometimes provided by yoke or collar. The new bullet but tons of oxidized silver or gold are also in evidence on many decorative and durable toilets for the sea. These to be chic should he completed by a tur ban headdress in that same blue or BATHING COSTUME. green and a pair of the black satin boots which are the novelty of the season. Still another pretty way of trimming these black silk suits is to border the neck of the kimouo bodice with a wide band of, say, pale blue foulard spotted or striped with white and to further finish off the tunic with groups of lit tle gold buttons. The bathing suit pictured here is of taffeta with a silk jersey over which falls a collar of plain and striped silk. FICHUS OF OLHACE AND FLOWER HATS With Sprigged Gowns They Are Quaint and Picturesque. Fichus and flower hats are very pop ular with the summer girl. Whether the flower hat is a result of the filmy fichu, or vice versa, one is the comple ment of the other, and neither could be worn with its present effectiveness without the other. One clever girl resurrected an organ die dress long ago relegated to the back closet. The fabric showed a shadow design of pink roses on a white background, the shadow leaves of greeji giving just the proper contrast. She cut out the high necked yoke and draped about the shoulders a fichu of soft white material, thin and graceful as chiffon. The edge was fin ished with a fluted frill of the mate rial and caught together in front with an old fashioned pin. With it she wore a wide leghorn hat wreathed with pink roses so natural looking one wanted to breathe their fragrance. A wide streamer of black velvet ribbon was caught underneath the chin in picturesque fashion. Regarding the flower hat, the im agination may run riot in the matter of trimmings. One of the favorite bouquets for distributing over the wide brim is sweet peas in all their varie gated shades. Another flower lending itself grace fully to hat adornment is wistaria. One lingerie hat of unusual dainti ness was of white point d’esprit, the entire brim covered with pale pink and lavender wistaria. Lilacs in either a combination of pur ple and white or the colors used alone are effective. Striking indeed was a broad soft brimmed black chip with a loose wreath of American Beauty roses and field daisies. White chip with garlands of white roses is be coming to the girl who wears a great many fine lingerie frocks. Hair Ornaments. Black velvet bands studded with gold or jeweled buckles are used to adorn the classic style of coiffure, while the more coquettish girl uses them fin ished with a knot on each end, a spray of silver aigret on one side or a bunch of drooping silk rose balls. Satin ribbon is used as a twist, soft folds, flat bands, plain, embroidered, beaded, lace appliqued; so is gilt, with a bow, fan or knot just back of the left ear. His Discipline. ‘Top, you must take this child in band. I have bad about all that l can stand. She has no notion of minding me; it is time you took her across your knee.” “Send her to me,” said Pop, with a frown. ”It won’t take me long to tone her down.” But bow could he punish her. tell me, do, when she looked at him with her eyes of blue? Looked at him in the same glad way that her mother did in that faroff day when she was his sweetheart and he her beau.. How could he strike her I’d like to know? But still he took her upon his knee and at once was lost in a reverie that carried him back to a shady street and a little maid whom he used to meet, a blue eyed maid whose count erpart now sat on his knee with a beating heart, waiting for him to for get those days and punish her for her wilful ways. Mom peeped in through the naif dosed door. They were playing jacks on the parlor floor, playing jacks and quarreling, too, just as two children are apt to do. She frowned, it was more than half caress. “I will have to punish them both, 1 guess.”—Chicago Record-Herald. Origin of Confetti. The history of confetti is rather curi ous. Several years ago a large print ing works in Paris was turning out im mense quantities of calendars, through which a small round hole had been punched to receive an eyelet for hold ing the sheets together. A heap of the little circular scraps of paper cut out by the punch accumulated on a table, and one of the machine men amused himself by scattering a handful of them over a working girl’s hair. She immediately snatched up a handful and threw them in his face. Other girls followed her example, and the first confetti battle began. The head of the establishment came in when it was at its height, and, being what the Americans call a “smart man,” he at once realized that there was “money in it.” He ordered special machinery, placed large quantities of the new ar ticle on the market, made a fortune and created anew industry. The Ways of Moles. Among common animals few have been less studied in their life history than the mole. An English natural ist. Mr. Lionel E. Adams, says that under the “fortress” which the mole constructs above the surface of the ground will always be found a series of tunnels running out beneath the adjacent field. A curious feature al most invariably found is a perpendic ular run penetrating about a foot be low the bottom of the nest and then turning upward to meet another run. A mole is never found in his nest, al though it may be yet warm from his body when opened. Guided by smell and hearing, a mole frequently locates the nest of a partridge or pheasant above his run and, penetrating it from below, eats the eggs. The adult mole is practically blind, but there are em bryonic indications that the power of sight in the race has deteriorated. An Arab Legend. “There is none so poor but there is one poorer.” A poor Arab spent bis last bara on a handful of dates and went up on a high cliff to eat them and die. As he threw the stones over a lean hand shot out below and caught them. “Ho!” said he. “Why do you catch my date stones?” “Because. O brother,” answered a weak voice. “I have Dot eaten these three days, and Allah has sent these stones to save my life.” “Praise be to Allah.” answered the first man. “for he has saved me also, for here is one poorer than I.” And both men went into the city. First Test of the Air Pump. The first public test of the air pump was in 1654 by its inventor, Otto von Guericke, in the presence of Emperor Ferdinand of Germany. Guericke ap plied the carefully ground edges of metallic hemispheres, two feet in di ameter. to each other. ’ After exhaust ing the air by his apparatus he at tached fifteen horses to each hemi sphere. In vain did they attempt to separate them because of the enor mous pressure of the atmosphere. The exoeriment was a great success. Electric Centipedes. Least attractive among the insects which give light are the so called “electric centipedes.'’ black crawlers with many legs which have been liken ed to serpents’ skeletons in miniature.
