Why A,perican Men Do

Like Their Euro

WHEN TRAVELING ALONE
Best Way to Take the Water
. Cure—To Make a Pretty
Dressing Table.
There is a story of a number of
women of cultivated English society who
wore curious to learn why American
women of cultivation so often marry
abroad. They recently made a long visit
of investigation, and have given out the
' results. Apparently they do not blame
the women, says the Chicago "Chroni
cle.”
They say they find that the American
woman, as a rule, is charming, as they
have found most of those who have mnr
I,
ried abroad, but as for the American
man. even in what is known as the best j
society, with all his readiness to buy for
women costly Bowers and such like lux- j
ury, he is utterly impossible. They say |
mat not one in a hundred of American :
men would pass muster ns a gentleman j
in England, that we are coarse and vul- J
gar in society, often overdressed, and j
nearly always without taste; that we are
always talking shop, destitute of knowl
edge or taste or desires in common with j
cultivated people, and prone to taking I
offensive liberties with women, who treat !
us with courtesy—in short, that it is no |
wonder that so many American women j
seek husliauds abroad.
Of course, it is easy to point out that .
marriages abroad have not always, per
haps not often, proved what they were
expected to be. It is easy, too. to say
that the criticisms of American men are
all from the artificial point of view, and
do not touch their manhood at all. All
this may be true, and so it may be true
that the polite man is not he who trainps
on your toes, and then thinks he has
atoned for all by a perfunctory "Beg
pardon,” but it is rather he is careful not
f to tread on yonr toes at aii. and to go
unobtrusively about his affairs, drawing j
no especial attention to himself.
Yet there is much t<*be said for even
the artificial amenities. They lubricate
human intercourse wonderfuMy and there
is absolutely no reason why they should
i not be combined in the same personality
’/ with honesty, sincerity, unselfishness,
generosity, courage, forbearance and all
the qualities of a frank and warm-heart- [
| -aed manhood.
' There is small doubt, too. that most ;
American men are too entirely absorbed j
• t business, whether it be running a milk |
jp 'wagon or a great metropolitan bank. It
is not so much because we despise the
social amenities of life as because we :
have always been too eagerly occupied to j
learn them.
Nevertheless all this is easy. It is no
more than to remember that the whoje
basis and inspiration of good breeding is :
regard for others. If we arc moved by |
that we will uot go late to theatre or I
church, or jam our knees into the bar1:
of the man in front of ns m the suburban
train nor perpetually joggle the elbow of ,
, the man who sits with u, nor slop over
into his half of the sett.
Prom this we may see low easy !r is 1
to apply the principle to the little things
of life, and of them is made up the
great whole. *

> My plan for locating in a strange
place, especially when it savors of a for
eign country, is to ask the purser or
steward which is considered the best
fault'j hotel, says the "Woman's Home
Companion.*’ Theu, on arrival, to wait
until the first rush of landing is over,
thus avoiding the confusion which reigns !
supreme at such times. Standing <lnictly |
back, the excited endeavors of the crowd j
to hurry all the officials into attending |
to them first affords much amusement
and be driven to the door without any
things. When you finally do go down
the gangway yon know which way to
turn, can walk up to the carriage or
omnibus hearing the uame of the hotel,
and be driTen to the dor without any
haggling with cabmen or fuss of any
kind. Having reached the hotel, tell the

Medicine, Cal-cura Sclvant, Was Taken.
“I very mucli wish,” writes Loretta J.
Vail, of Hopewell Junction, N. Y., that I
migi.t be able in a few lines, without put
ting myself forward, to let the people un
derstand how valuable Cal-cura Solvent,
the uric medicine discovered by Dr. David
Kennedy, is in cases of indigestion and the
ok© ailments, which are so common among
u*. I suffered from a severe variety of liver
complaint, with dizziness, numbness, and
nn exceedingly weak and excitable state of
the nerves. I employed the best treatment
within my reach, yet nothing really helped
until I began to nse Cal-cura Solvent, and
that did.” All druggists, $1.00.
to the parlor for ladies. Then write on
your card, "Please assign me a room;
price not to exceed three dollars a day.”
A bell-boy will soon return with a key,
and conduct you to I he elevator. What
if it does shoot you up to the top floor
to a small room? You are not going to
stay there long, and it's pretty sure to
have a good bed and plenty of towels.
This plan of mine way seem extrava
gant at first, but consider the advantages
—you see one of the best hotels, always
worth a visit in such places: you can
examine local papers aud guide books
in the reading room, and get at the ad

I the habit of drinking a glass
of water, hot or cold, according
to the state of digestion in the
morning, was general, there would be
digestive organs are taxed by breakfast,
fewer complaining women. To secure
the best results, twenty minutes at least
should elapse between the drink and
breakfast, so that the greater part of
the liquid could be absorbed before the
digestive organs are taxed by brekfst.
Cold water stimulates the membranes of
the stomach and hot water soothes them,
so each must choose for herself. Sip
ping either is better than swallowing
them rapidly, an-i when the taste of hot
water is unpalatable, a pinch of salt or
a dash of lemon juice will improve it.
A pinch of soda vi ith the lemon juice
is even better.
The water cure ean be overdone, like
the grape cure. For a time the fiood'iig
of the system like that at the medicinal
springs is beneficial, but prolonged it is
likely to produce catarrh of the stomach.
A national habit of drinking water will
nor only improve health, but preserve it.
A man called at this office one day to
tell me that hi- aged father was a hale,
hearty man, absolutely free from that
scourge of old age, rheumatism, and ne
attributed his health to the daily con
sumption of raw prunes. He eats six
every day, aud a few women to whom
I told the story are following his ex
ample. The prunes can be soaked until
they are plump, and grow a bit softer
and dried before eating, and really they
are very tasty. Certainly, they are sim
ple and harmless enough to try.

If there is in the house one of the old

mirrors, the clever young woman has the
better part of a very pretty dressing
table within her reach. Hang it rather
low and stand beneath it one of the
small square tables with two drawers
and narrow drop leaves that are to he
had for £.'! or $4. with a flue mahogany
finish, in almost any shop. Open the
leaves, spread over their length a narrow
bureau doily of openwork, and with can
dlesticks, dainty toilet articles and the
like a thoroughly good dressing table is
evolved. Before it may stand a low,
square seat or u cushion.
A TVIfe‘« Stratagem.
X London journal tells an admirable
story of beauteous Kesa. who loved
her husband, but who was herself
sought by her wicked aud powerful
cousin, Molito. Knowing that Molito
would take her husband’s life unless
eircumventerfby guile, she laid a terri
ble plot. Summoning Molito, she told
him that ou a certain night her hus
band would be sleeping in a certain
room and that she intended to unloosen
his hair so that under no circumstances
could he be mistaken for another man.
On the night in question Molito entered
the room, severed the sleeper's head
with his sword and, holding it up to the
moon by the hair—beheld the face of
Kesa herself.
CntssM of Colliers’ Wives.
The wives of north country colliers
observe a very touching and pathetic
custom when an accident occurs in the
pit Directly it is known to the wife
of a collier that an accident has hap
pened in the pit where her husband
works and that his fate is uncertain
she throws open the house door, and.
however inclement the weather may be,
she keeps the door open and a candle
burning in the window, night and day,
till the man is brought home, dead or
alive, in some rases the door has re
mained open and the candle alight dur
ing several weeks.—London Chronicle.

Weird Sensation When the Church
Became Totally Dark.
“I went to n Fifth avenue church last
Sunday night,” said a man who is good
once a week, “and quite unexpectedly
got n new sensation. The church was
brilliantly lighted, but something went
wrong with the electrical apparatus,
and all of a sudden most of the lights
went out. Midway in the building two
or three bunches of bulbs continued to
shed a sepulchral twilight, but the pul
pit was shrouded in darkness, and nerv
ous members of the congregation began
to fidget.
“This condition of affairs lasted for
some minutes until the choir had fin
ished an anthem. Then the preacher
arose and requested the people to re
main quietly seated for half a minute
In totnl darkness, when the church
would be fully illuminated again. With
the words the few remaining lights
went out, and for a space darkness like
that of’a coal hole prevailed.
“It was the weirdest, most uncanny
wait I ever had. Every man and wo
man of the 800 or 1.0C0 in that church
was as still as death almost. X sup
pose the darkness did not last a minute,
but it seemed to me to be an hour.
When the lights again leaped out there
was a sigli of relief from every person
in the church. I guess they all felt as
queer about it as I did.”—New York

HORSEHAIR FOR BOWS.
Only Black or White From Russia ox
Germany Is Used.
There is a vast amount of horsehair
] annually used in the United States for
j making and repairing violin, violon
j cello and bass viol bows. All of the
hair comes from Germany and Rus
sia, in which countries the tails of
horses are generally allowed to grow
much longer than here. The foreign
hair is also coarser in texture and
tougher than that which grows on the
American horse, and these qualities
make the imported article more valua
ble than the domestic product!
There are only two kinds of horse
hair suitable for makiDg bows, and
they are of white and black varieties.
The former is used for violin bows,
and the latter, which is heavier and
stronger, is the best material for mak
ing bows for cello and bass viols, be
cause It bites the larger strings better.
The imported hair is put up in hanks
of thirty-six inches long, which is five
or six inches longer than the standard
violin bow. A hank is sufficient for
one violin bow. while two hanks are re
quired to hair a cello or bass viol bow.
There are ahout one and a half ounces
of hair in a hank, which is worth from
20 to 30 cents, according to the quality
of the hair.—Philadelphia Record.

THE ART OF BOXING.
Fistic Combats Were Highly Esteem
ed In Ancient Times.
Pugilism, the practice of boxing or
fighting with the fists, was a manly art
and exercise highly esteemed among
the ancients. In those days the hands
of the pugilist were armed with the
cestus, leather thongs loaded with
lead or iron. This form of athletic
sport was at first only permitted to
freemen among the Greeks, but grad
ually it was taken up as a profession
and lost much of its prestige.
As an illustration of its early use we
find in Virgil’s fifth .Eneid the record
of a match between Dares, “with nim
ble feet and confident in youth.” and
Entellus. the veteran champion, "strong
and weighty limbed.” when the com
batants—
Their arms uplift in air, their heads with
draw
Hack from the blows, and, mingling hand
with band.
Provoke the conflict.
Pugilism has been a typical English
sport from the dayS'of King Alfred,
but its golden age as a profession dates
from the accession of the house of
lianover.—London Standard.
Living? and Working:.
Few people outside of hoboes and In
dians uot taxed really live without
working.
Those who work without really liv
ing are much more numerous, includ
ing. as they do. billionaires and seam
stresses with more than six small chil
dren.
In the perfect day, when the lion
and the lamb shall walk together and
the rich shall go down to the college
settlements and play bridge with the
poor, we shall ail doubtless both live
and work.—Life.
Pill May’s Habits.
The all night and next day habits of
Phil May. the artist, have furnished
material for many a story. .Toe Tapley,
the singer, said that he came across
May one night and heard that the lat
ter had not been to bed for four nights
and days. He remonstrated, and May
said: “Never mind. Joe; We’ll make a
bargain. Don’t you lose any sleep on
my account, and I promise that as soon
| as I feel tired I’ll go to bed!”

“Will you marry me?” he asksd
