Chauncey SI. Depew, New York's, senior United States senator, whoso health recently has been a matter of concern to his friends, almost for got to vote nt the recent election. When he found his way into the polling place, 984 Sixth avenue, sev eral of those in the place vied with ono another in showing Depew the way to a booth. He was in the booth less than a minute. When ho emerged he stood a moment, ns if irresolute, then started for the door. Witlf his bal lot clutched in his hand, he walked past the clerk stationed at tho ballot box. The clerk spoko, but the sena-. tor, who had his eye fixed on the door, apparently did not hear. Ho kept straight on. A chorufl was raised, and -Depew halted and looked confused. He gave a start, turned around, then his face broke into a smile. "Ah 1 1 see," he said, retracing his steps. After putting his vote in the box the senator got out of the place with out further misadventure. In spite of his momentary lapso, it is thought by his friends the sena tor voted as he intended. Ho did not ask for assistance in marking his ballot. LAZINESS ROOT OF EVILS All's Well That Ends Well Is The Most Costly of Mottos In the Home. "All's well that ends well" is the most costly of mottos, declares the author of ".Neighbors and Friends," who add that in her daily rounds the district nurse becomes convinced that laziness, mental and bodily, is at the lKittoin of most of the evils of life. Mothers repeatedly argue when re monstrated with for allowing girls in their Icons to spend their time in idleness, "I ran do the work my self,' and when the time comes for it, they'll do the same." They do not recognize how much easier life would be for their children if they "did not allow habits of laziness and selfish ness to take deep root. In the days when sowing formed a larger part of every woman's edu cation and occupation than it does at present, a mother was reproached for allowing her daughter to spend so much time over embroider)'. In defending hcivelf, she said : "I have had her taught sewing, and whether she makes shirts or tea-cozies mat tors very little. "What matters is the luibit of industry. Provided she has that, she will always turn to any form of work that may be neces sary." . It seems almost impossible for un educated mothers to grasp the fact that although their children's assist ance in the housework may bo of lit tle value, they must nevertheless ex act it, and that the important point is the habit of industry, not the in trinsic worth of childish efforts. Even in the humblest forms of work it muy truly lie said: "Ease is' (ho lovely result of forgotten toil." SLIPPERS OF FUR, NOT GLASS Cinderella's Footgear Transformed by the Mistake of Perrault Who Wrote Out the Fairy Tale. When Perrault in the seventeenth century was writing his fairy tales to amuse the courtiers of France, he had recourse to tho old French I chronicles-- Then he read that Cin derella, or whatever her name was in those days, went to the ball, in slippers of "vair," tho royal fur of that time miniver, as it is now known. Perrault, misreading the text, decked out his heroine in slip pers of verre (glass), a very different thing. The real Cinderella probably went to the dance in thoso pointed, cnVvirig, fur-hordored-shoes of medi-, eval days. But, thaDks to Perrault, she will, trip down the corridors of tunc in heir little clattering glass , slippers.! ' - I DESTRUCTIVE NAPOLEON. He was destructive by character and custom. Ho stuck his paper knife into (he costly chairs that were provided for him everywhere. Ho wasted' huge quantities of paper. Whenever ho took up anything that was frail or finely worked ho was .quite certain to demolish it or dam age it before he put it down. He pulled up the choicest plants in the hothouses, and, when he could do it without being seen, he used to shoot Josephine's rare, birds. One day the emperor shot out one of the eyes of Messena, the duke of Rivoli, but nothing was said of it. Berthier took the blame for it, prob ably because he was matter of tho hunt. Kielland's "Napoleon's Men and Methods." TAKING TIME BY THE. FORELOCK. "Tell mo the worst, doctor. I can bear it" "Well, I think I had better bring my bill today. Tomorrow it will be too late." HAT WEARING AND DRAUGHTS. Draughts in parliament are cred ited with partial responsibility for members' custom of wearing their hats, which some, however, have even regarded as inherited from the old open air meets. But privilege and tradition are factors, also.. When 14 years ( ago it was proposed at the London county council to start hat wearing because of the draughts at Spring Gardens, the council decided not to "ape the manners of parlia ment." Lord Onslow nobly declined to make a party question of "a nat ural infirmity like a bald head." For merly iear of draughts led to the wearing of hata even at dinner, though it was good manners not to put on your hat until your host did. Pepys records catching a bad cold "by flinging off my hat at dinner, sitting with tho wind in ray neck." London Chronicle. ONE 8IDE ENOUQH. Senator William Alden Smith says the evident desire of Colonel Jtoose velt to listen to the plaints of both insurgents and regulars places him in a different category from on Irish justice of the pence out in Michigan, says Washingionia. In a trial tho evidenco was all in and the plaintiffs attorney had made a long and very eloquent argument, when the lawyer acting for the defense arose. "What are you doing P" askod tho justice as the lawyer began. "Going to present our side of the case." "I don't want to hear both sides argued. It has a tindency to confuse the court."
