What, then, is It, this home of which the English constantly speak, the thought of which touches their heart, whose memory dims their eyes, that enfolds all the happiness of their life? It la home, a place in which to for get the aggravations of the world, in which to be with one's dear ones, one's pets and one's lares and penates generally. , T ;, 4 v. ) Shaw's Life Principle. Leslie M. Shaw of Iowa, formerly , secretary of the treasury, has a story on , tap to fit almoBt every situation that presents itself. He was gov- j ernor of Iowa when President Roose-1 velt invited him to become a member of his cabinet. He went to Washing ton in response to a summons from the White House. While Mr, Shaw's , appointment ha(d been rumored, it had ( not been announced officially, and a persistent rumor was In circulation to the effect that be would not accept the cabinet offer. Several correspondents I waited on Mr. Shaw at his hotel to learn hla intentions regarding the mat ter. ; - "When I was a boy." he said, "I started off one day. on a fishing trip with another boy. We had a long tramp to the Ashing place, and as the weather was warm we got very thirsty, and coming to a farmhouse my com panion suggested that we stop and get a drink of water. The lady, of the house not only gave us a drink out of a nice tin dipper, but Insisted upon our taking some pie. Bill, my com panion, took a large piece, but from diffidence or something, I declined. Bill looked at me with amazement 'Lea,' he said, 'always- help yourself to pie wnen it is ; passing.' Tbat was pretty sound advice, and I have acted on that principle ever since." Wash Ington Star, A Study in Black. Like a glimpse of the southland- was a little scene on lower Seventh avenue one morning this week, Bays the New ork Globe. On fche pavement direct ly in iront or tne entrance to a poor .tenement sat a negro boy not more than five years old. Bare-headed and bare-footed, clad only In two ragged ' garments, he squatted, like a tailor, his ebony face alight with apprecia tion as he munched a bit of fiwit. Close beside him on the sidewalk was an old soap box. In the soap box was an ebony baby of 18 months, clad in a single - garment and equally happy In aa endeavor to swallow share of the fruit. The soap Vox- was a substitute for an anattainable baby ' carriage. . and the flve-vear-nlri mih. etltute for aa unattainable nursemaid Dire poverty meant nothing to the pair of negro children. - ,. , "There s an opportunity for a fine canvas," said one observer.

He Is the type. ; He em .bOfliejTit; is It; lives jt And having made thja flat, unequivocal statement, I ul pretty certain that about 17 other southern statesmen will quit speaking to me. says a writer in the Washing ten Star. : . Air. Thomas la a legislator. He legis lates, in his sleep. Never does he slip a cog and relax the strain under which he labors. To him 111 e.is one awfully serious grunt, T'other day, or maybe 'twas t'other week, Mr. Thomas telephoned up to the press gallery that he desired to see the representative of the Evening Star; as he had a piece of Important new, t0 lmpart for pubIlcatloil. Tni, was a bit out of the ordinary, for us ually when a southern statesman has anything to Impart In the line of per sonal publicity he comes around with the goods and delivers with much back-slapping , and rib-tickling and teem. But, anyhow, I chased down to see Mr. Thomas, full of anticipation and news instinct, and sent in for him. In the course of a quarter of an hour or so he came out, placed his hand upon 1 my shoulder In a patronizing manner and smiled seriously upon me. "Young mant" he inquired, "you are, I take it, the Star representative here?" . - I admitted it. "You are their regular man?" , "Yes.". ' "The reason I ask," continued Mr. Thomas, "is merely that I continually have trouble with unreliable members of your profession. For there are many unreliable ones, are there not?" I pleaded guilty,, being plumb crushed. . " . . , "So in order to get this item of. news just right," continued , .Mf, Thomas, "I have had It written from my dictation. You assure me that It will not be changed?" "Oh, yes," I whispered, in deep de jection. ' . - "You may add to this if you wish," continued the light of the North Caro lina delegation, "some of my leading achievements both here and at home. Take this and pray see that it is pub lished to-day." . When I got up in the gallery again I unfolded the slip of paper which .Mr. Thomas had handed to me. And this was the Item of news It contained: "Mrs. Thomas wife Hon. Charlea Randolph Thomas, representative in congress from the Third district of North Carolina, and who has been in the house since the Fifty-sixth con gress, has returned to Washington from a visit to her folks." . HE DIDN'T KNOW PATRICK. But the Washington Cabman Made a Bluff Which Satisfied .Him. The genuine old Washington cab driver Is as unlike the New York species as an orange is unlike a lem on. He is a genial and companion able creature, with a pronounced tal ent for conversation. He sits sldeswise la his little open carriage, one leg half the time hang ing over the side, devoting himself enthusiastically to his passengers and their edification. ' ' " He considers It a moMl obligation to know the answer to every question that anybody's fertile imagination can suggest, and . he disseminates more misinformation In an hour's drive than will be corrected la a lifetime. During the D. A. R. convention one of these omniscient Jehus was pilot ing two or three .women about Wash ington. Apropos of some hisiorleal reference one of -the women spoke of the newspaper account of the proposed burning, Just about that time, of the Patrick Henry house because It was lnfeated with bats. The women com mented on It and said Jt was a pity tt had to he done. ' Tes," aald the driver, taking the part In the conversation which he felt to be lncumbept on him; "yes, It cer tainly Is too bad.

Last Moments of Great Musician, A letter written by Count Grzy mala, who was an ardent admirer of Chopin, haa been made public in Lon don by Eduard Zeldenrust. - In it the last moments of Chopin are thus re ferred to: "A few hours before he died he asked Mme. Potocka to sing some melodies by Rossini and Bellini, and this she did with sobs In her voice. Listening to her voice he passed away," Speaking of the fu nenu tne writer says: "Mozart s re quiem and his own' funeral march were performed with the assistance of Lablacbe, Viardot and the concert so ciety. It was characteristic of the times that the artists should have asked 2,000 francs for this last trib ute to Chopin. One would have thought that pride would have kept them from selling their gifta on such an occasion." The Types of Cats. There are a number of classes of Persian cats, the division between them being purely arbitrary and based on tne color of the fur. The most beautiful of all the Persians 18 the pure white. .They are, however, very hard to keep clean, and a dirty white cat Is certainly anything but an orna ment about one's rooms. It la unfor- tonate that many white cats are deaf, so when one Is making a purchase of a cat that color it Is a wise precau tion to test the hearing. Another fail ing which white cats have, in common with all light colored cats, la that their constitutions are not so vigorous as those of the dark haired cats.' Su- fearban Life. - .
