One CharacierUtio of the Schoolteacher of Washington. 11 tell you ono thing," said the young man stenographer from tho west who got nia jod in ono of the departments rocently and who has boon noticing things pretty careruiiy since lie camo to Washington, "tnia uurg'a got the prettiest sot of school teachers I ever saw anywhere, and that's no lie. Out where I como from, say, the schoolteachers havo got faces aa hard as mallets and glussy starea and a general rroezy way about 'em that makea a fellow that meets up with one of 'em feel like he's about 7 years old in tho third grade all over again. And. honest, they all seem to mo to be about 85 years old at that. It's tho same in a whole lot of other big towna in the south and west that I've worked In. Well, when I struck this town a friend of nil no took me to his boarding house that's right next door to a big schoolhouso. My room's a second story front room and commands a view of the entrance to the school, and, say. the boo ond morning that I was there I looked out of the window just about a quarter of an hour before school 'took In, 'and, geowhizl 1 saw a procession of pretty, fresh looking, sweii, siyufiniy uressed young women a-stroellng up the steps of that schoolhouso that mado in think I was taking an East er Sunduy turnout. 'bay,' suya I to my roommako, who's a Washington man born and bred, 'what do you make of this par rule of alnjlxhty pretty girls a-walklng up those school houso steps? Is it a high school, and aro they pupil?, or what tho dickens, anyhow?' "Pupils nothing,' saya ho. Theyre teachers. wen, 1 gavo mm tno hoot, or course. but he stuck to It so seriously that I of course had to believe him. " 'Well, says I to him finally, 'they're the pick of all the schoolteachers in town, then, sent down here because It's a down town 6choolhouao, just to impress visitors.' "ot much they ain't,' 6ays ho. 'All the schoolteachers In thia town are pretty enough to cat and just as nice aa they nre pretty. There ain't anything but fine looking folks living in Washington, any how,' snys ho. "Well, say, I didn't bollovo him when ho 8ii hi that nil tho teachers In all tho schools were just as attractive 09 those I bud sern, and so tho next morning, beforo ollico hours, wo hustled around on our bikes to three schools just before school took In,' nncl blamed if I naw a single toucher In tho lot thut wasn't pretty and swoct looking enough for a fellow to marry out of hand on the spot. I wrote home and told my sisters out we6t about tbl?, and they'ro been writing back ' tJ me and telling 1110 thnt I'm in a trunco and must bo mistaken. But I'm not mistaken. don't want to seo any nicer looking girls than the schoolteachers of this town, and you hear 1110 a tulking." Washington btur. lie Invited Ills Fate. An incldont that pointed a strong moral took place on Chestnut stroet. The street waa thronged with promonaders, and the magnificent bt. Bernard dog which a young woman was leading attracted much attention. Near Thirteenth street the woman entered a store, leaving the dog outsldo. The dog was such a magnificent beast that soverul pooplo stopped in admi ration, and the dog actually seemed to smile at the attention he was receiving. About this time two giddy youths, who were followed by a mischievous fox ter rier, came along and paused to see what was attracting the throng. The terrier, which waa but a mite beside the St Ber nard, rushed in and began snarling at the big dog. The noblo looking boast paid not tho slightest attention, and the youths audibly commented on the big one's cow ardice. When tho terrier began snapping at his feet, however, the big ono gravely raised one paw and pushed hla tormentor away. This angorcd the terrier, and its anger was fed by the youths, who told Jip, at they called bim, to go In and "shake the big coward." Jip went in and set bit tooth In the St. Bernard's leg. Suddenly the big dog lost his forbearance snd in a trice Jip was In its masslvo jaws. There was a crunching sound, a couple of shakes and Jip was cast aside dead. Tho St. Bernard then resumed his place uncon cernedly, and tho young men gathered np their dead terrier and went olT to make complaint at tho city hall. Philadelphia Record.

It was SteUon who on landing from the steamer after a stormy voyngo exclaimed, ''Thank God, I am onco more on vice versa I" Mrs. BlllinRton on her return from America brought homo many Stetson toriea. One of tho best had reference to the sudden necessity of enlarging the pro gramme of a variety entertainment. Hla manager bad, aa ho believed, successfully filled tho bill. Stetson arrived on the scene In the midst of tho opening num bers. "Wbut ia on now?" ho asked. "Well, It's just a pretty, sentimental duet by the brothers So-and-so." "Sentimen tal, ehf" suld Stetson. "That's good." It was one of those duets that have sup plied George Grossmlth and other enter tainers with some of their best burlesques of part singing. The tenor asks a vocal question, tho baritone replies a kind of litany, with variations. In thia case tho tenor waa a feeble looking youth of 60, with ono of thoso voices that may bo mu do or an escape of gas. Stetson stood at tho wing and contem plated 1,be duelists youthful tenor of 50, Bgod buritene with tho manners of 20 and such a wlgt "Where are tho friends of my youth?" began tho tenor In pathetic tones that hardly reached tho orchestra. "Where aro tho lovod ones gone?" re sponded the baritone in a gloomy gurgle. "Farther back." said Stetson from the wing. "They'll hoar you better lower down the stano." Having thus got them well out of tho way of the curtain, "King down," he said to the prompter at hla el bow, and tho drop fell. "On with the noxt number in tho programme, " he said, "and send thoso two gentlemen to my room. How long aro you engaRed for?" he asked them. "Two weeks, Mr. Stet son," they answered with deferential hu mility. "How much?" "Fifteen dollars a week." "Very well, my poor fellows. There's your money," ho said. "I won't detain you. Go and find the frionda of your youth." When you tell thia story, it Is necessary that you should sing tho lines to their right tune and with characteristic Imitation of two played out voices, and bear in mind how cynically courteous Stetson would be in commending tho fad ed duetists to go straightway In quest of thoso friends of their youth.

"Why, yes, tho next room la a 6mall chapel whero ev ery toreador goca before tho fight to pray and ask God and his patron saint that hla lifo be spared and that ho bo given the courago and strength to tako that of the bull." We entered the small chapel, at ono end of which was an altar covered with flowers and lighted candlos, in the mlddlo a crucifix, and behind a painting of the Virgin Mary. One of tho toreadora came in and, kneeling at tho altar, began to pray. What a contrast! This man, covered with silk and gold, kneeling In front of tho Christ, asking for the protec tion of tho kind and sweet lover of hu manity and asking (In order to kill) tho protection of him to whom all Uvea are dour ond precious. "You seethe man there kneeling and praying?" said my friend. "Well, ho is Manuel Garcia, generally called 'Espar tero,' the greatest living toreador. Ho ia the first espada of Spain and is celebrated for hla great courage. When ho 6ticks hla sword in tho bull's neck, ho never jumps asldo, as other toreadors do no, he wants to stop the bull there to kill him 011 the spot. As it is nearly impossible, ho has often boon seriously wounded by dying bulls. Ho has saved over 100.000 pesetas. He will retire from the ring a rich man in another year." The man had finished praying. Ho left the chapel, shaking hands with hla friends, and I could not help thinking, "A rich man in ono year yes, provided" But I did not dnru tinlsh my thought even to myst'lf, and, raising my eyes to the cruci fix, I .murmured involuntarily, "God, spare him!"
