? THE f
{STENOGRAPHERS' PRANK{
I AND f
{ITS ROMANTIC RESULT. }
There is no telling what put it into
their heads. Perhaps it was a remark
thoughtlessly made by William, the
office boy. William is not a dull boy,
but he hardiy weighs his words as
carefully as lie may do when he gets
older. He said:
"I bet them delegates won't tell
their wives all of the procedin's when
they get back home."
Both Miss Purdue and Miss Benedict
heard him say that. They may not
have paid any particular attention to
it, William being in the habit of say
ing precocious and absurd things. The
idea may have been suggested by the
overcoats of the delegates them
selves, which hung in a tempting row
in the main office, while their owners
were consulting with Mr. Davis, the
president of the association, in the
big committee room. The fact that
Miss Benedict rejoices in a wealth of
golden hair no doubt had something
to do with it, taken either by itself
or in conjunction with other facts
and circumstances.
Miss Purdue and Miss Benedict are
stenographers in the employ of the
association, which has its offices in
town and sends up its delegates from
the country about every three months.
In strict confidence they call them
selves "stenogs," though that is a mat
ter of slight importance and signi
ficant in only a email degree. Yet it
may bo said that stenographers would
never have clone such a thing, while
it was only v. hat might have been
expected from a pair of "stenogs."
At first Miss Benedict wished Miss
Purdue to contribute some of her
crowning glory to the scheme. Miss
Purdue has brown hair. She said:
"There isn't the least bit of sense
in that. You can take any novel you
like and the brown-haired woman is
the devoted wife and mother, with all
the steady domestic virtues. I'll bet
you the candy that nine out of 10 of
them have got brown-haired wives. A
brown hair on their coats would oj.
cite no notice whatever. It wouldn't
be seen, and if it was seen it would
look all right No. my dear, if you
want to make trouble take your own
hair. It's the kind that naturally be
longs to sirens."
"I'm sure I'm very much obliged to
you," said Miss Benedict.
Nevertheless she submitted to the
dominant will of the other and for
the next five minutes she exclaimed
"Ouch!" at intervals of two or three
seconds.
Then the delegates began to come
in and bang up their coats. There
were perhaps 30 of them, altogether.
As soon as they wore all comfortably
behind the closed door Miss Purdue
rose from her typewriter and beck
oned to licr friend.
Miss Benedict, however, refused to
be enticed from her work. She said.
"I'll keep right on so as to avert sus
picion." Whereupon Miss Purdue ac
cused her of being a " 'frald cat," and
opening the little drawer of the type
writer stand look from it a respectable
hank of golden hair. She then went
over to where the coats were hanging
and proceeded to deck them with tho
shining strands.
She did it artistically—not so that
the hairs would be at once perceived,
but that from their concealment be
neath the collars, behind lapels and
under pocket flaps they would work
Out in time to the confusion of those
who had unknowingly harbored them.
Here and there she tucked a few in
the sleeve linings.
It was this that betrayed them. They
should have waited until the ast day
of the session. As it was. the dele
gates had one more day, possibly two,
to attend. The clay after the bur
nished threads had been placed tho
two young women heard a sudden
burst of laughter from the committee
room. This was so strange, so en
tirely without precedent, that they
looked at each other in amazement.
William, the office boy, came out of
the room at this time, and Miss Pur
due instantly pounced upon him.
"What are they laughing at. Wil
liam?" she said
"Tell us!' commanded Miss Bene
dict.
William indignantly shook himself
free from their clutches. "Aw. say!"
he exclaimed. Then he grinned and
added: "They picked a woman's hair
ofC'n Mr. Ibu rner's coat. They've got
it on him. all right.. It's a cinch, none
of them others don't have to pay for
any drinks or KP< yars as long's they're
in town an' keep close to him. Oh,
say! It was a peach—as long as
your arm and—"
Here ho stopped, his eye encounter
ing Miss Benedict's massy coiffure.
His grin widened and he suddenly put
his hand before it and doubled him
self up in an ecstacy of mirth. Miss
Purdue promptly cuffed him and ho
fled, pursued by the two. and took
refuge in the telephone cabinet.
In about five minutes the committee
room door opened, and the delegates
came out. Their faces were wreathed
in smile?, and r.a mar.;- as could get
near Mr. Harmer wore amitinz him
on the back and addressing to him
sundry plecsant; i -s. It was net hard
to distinguish Mr. Harmer. His
smile was altogether different to those I
of the others. Miss Benedict did not |
see him, for she was clattering away j
on her typewriter at a furious rate.'
Indeed, her exertion was so great as |
to bring quite an unusual color to her j
cheeks. Miss Purdue saw him and
said afterward that ho was quite nice
looking. Further, she said that he did
not look like a married man. though !
how she differentiated is a mystery. ]
The point of the matter is that as
the delegates were putting on their J
coats one of them, a man with a
double chin and four creases in his |
neck, happened to notice Miss Bene- |
diet rather more particularly than
usual, and he was instantly struck
with the similarity in tint and texture
of her hair and the anonymous fila
ment that had been discovered on his
colleague's coat. He at once called
the attention of the rest of the dele
gates to this circumstance.
Miss Benedict could not hear what
they said, but she know that it was
horrid. Her back was turned to the '
corner where the coats were kept,
but she could feel the glances that
were directed at her and her cheeks
burned distressingly. One of the dele
gates railed out.
"What time was llarmer here this
morning? Does any one know?"
"He was here when I got here," i
said another. "I guess I was here he- j
fore any of the rest of you."
Miss Benedict struck the keys of
her typewriter with vicious energy,
and the resulting clatter drowned the
rest.
It is unnecessary to say that Miss
Benedict bitterly reproached Miss
Purdue or that she spent subsequent
hours of repentance and humiliation.
She wont to the office, however, and
had been at work for half an hour be
fore Mr. Mordant, the president of the
association, arrived. She fancied Mr. |
Mordant looked at her curiously and j
rather severely, but that may have ;
been imagination. But there was no
question about the way the dele- j
gates comported themselves. They !
may not have meant it at all. but they j
were insufferable. Some of them j
looked at her laughingly; others with j
a dreadful austerity that Miss Bene
dict know was deserved. Three or ,
four of them did not look at her at
all, and she felt that was worst of '
all. One by one they came, each as j
unpleasant as possible in his peculiar
way, until at last Mr. Harmer arrived.
And then somebody coughed, and they
all coughed.
Miss Benedict said she simply would
not stand it another day. nor another
hour, for that matter. Therefore she
called William to her and bribed him
to tell Mr. Mordant how, why and
under what circumstances the hair
had been distributed. Then she went
home and telephoned down to the
office that she had a sick headache—
which was perfectly true—and could
riot come to work.
The headache lasted for three days,
at the end of which time Miss Bene
dict went back to the office. She had
seen Miss Purdue twice before, but
all Miss Purdue knew was that Mr.
Mordant maintained a grave sileneo.
William had said that Mr. Mor
dant just nodded and said "Hm-m-m!"
when ho told, and that soon
after there was more laughter in
the committee room. As soon as the ;
meeting was over there had been a
general overhauling of overcoats, and
Mr. Harmer had gathered up the hair.
Miss Benedict had made up her
mind just what penitential pose she
would adopt when Mr. Mordant called
her into his office. She had determined
at what point in her excuses she
would allow her voice to break and
a pearly tear to roll down her cheek.
She had got her defensive campaign
mapped out. Then Mr. Mordant, in
stead of calling her in. came out and.
pausing in front of her desk, said:
"Don't let that occur again. If you
please, Miss Benedict." And. hardly \
looking at her, went into the tele- j
phone room.
And now the young women are
wondering why Mr. Harmer gathered !
up the hair, and what he intends to I
do with it, and whether he will be
at the next meeting, and all sorts of !
things.—Chicago Record.

For 10 copecks (5 cents) everything
that Praga park, in Warsaw, affords
is yours. There are open-air theatres,
Punch and Judy and other sideshows,
outdoor attractions, such as walk 3,
groves, fountains, boating of every
conceivable kind, merry-go-rounds,
swings, dancing pavilions, lunch coun

Beautiful In Spile or A C e.
The Princess cf Montenegro, who
will celebrate this year her fortieth
wedding anniversary, is said to be
still one of the most beautiful women
in Europe. She is highly educated
and greatly beloved for her benefac
tions to the needy and afflicted. Her
husband, Prince Nikita, has reigned
40 years. They have had ten chil
dren.
Tlio New Itlouse*.
Tight fitting "liodicea a'ltd Etons ac
company tailor skirts. The blouse,
too, 13 very popular, but in a more
glorified condition, for it is made on to
a fitted lining and becomes more of a
bodice. Tucks, frills, lace insertion,
turn it into a thing of beauty, and,
being made up over a tight fitting lin
ing, it seems anomalous to apply the
appellation blouse to such a dainty
confection. Now is the time when
one or two flannel blouces are so con
venient to take in turn with those of
silk or cambric. The fronts of such
blouses can be made quite dressy by
means of machine stitiched tabs, with
a tiny enamel button at the end. Rib
bon velvet is another pretty trimming
for them, and made with a sailor col
lar of guipure lace they form very
ftressy wear.
i or White Itun.l*.
Cleanliness is the first esentlal, and
therefore when rough work has to be
done it is well, if possible, to put on
gloves. Prevention is better than
cure; and as nothing spoils the hands
like getting them grimmed, this
should be avoided as far as possible.
It is, however, not always possible to
wear gloves for dirty work, so one
must be prepared for one's hands be
ing sometimes very much soiled. When
this is the case, don't go to work
upon them with soda, soap and brush,
for that would roughen them dread
fully. Instead, take some vaseline,
lard or oil and rub it into the hands,
and then wash them Thoroughly with
a good toilet soap and a piece of
flannel in warm water. The flannel
will soon clean tlicm and without in
juring the skin in any way. It is far
better than a nailbrush for ordinary
use, and, if used regularly, a nail
brush will he fouhd almost if not en
tirely superfluous. That Is a thing to
lie remembered, for the use of a brush
roughens the finger tips and nails and
makes them more liable to become
soiled than need be.—Washington
Star.
FimMoii* In (iloveit.
Glace kid, buttoned, gloves are the
correct ones for church, with two or
four buttons, and of white or a light
tan. If tan a heavier kid Is used, and
one or two buttons are sufficient; In
fact, a regular h'avy walking glove is
the smartest. Many women always
cling to a Suede glove of the mousque
taire style with two buttons only.
Theso are of a lighter shade of color
than the gown or of black. Of course
this does not refer to a red, or a
green, or a blue gown—simply to the
brown or gray. A white Suede glove
Is absolutely inappropriate, however.
So much depends upon the lining of
the muff as to what gloves can lie
worn from a practical point of view
that it is as well to buy one with refer
ence to the other. The present fashion
of the white lining or the fur lining
for the very rich fur muffs makes it
possible to wear white or light gloves,
whereas the dark linings so soon soil
the glove 3 that it is generally silly to
follow slavishly the fashion of wearing
white gloves, especially If economy
has to be consulted. As the church
costume is emphatically a walking
costume, heavy walking boots or
boots of kid and patent leather are
correct. The fancy dress boot or shoe
is not then sensible or in good taste.

Cllildrnn and the Use or Money.
Two extremes have been taken by
parents with regard to children's
handling money. Some give their chil
dren all the money they want, while
others never give their children a
cent. In the first case the children
grow up without any ideas of the
value of a doiiur, and are often
obliged to learn later in life, through
failure, the value of money. In the
second case. A3 soon as the child
reaches an age to earn anything, he
wishes to enjoy the luxury and free
dom of spending it as he chooses, affil |
often doo3 so with about the same re
sult as in the first instance.
Neither method is wise nor just to
the child. A great deai of his future
happiness as well as that of those
connected with him depends upon his
ability to earn and manage an In
come. Whenever the child can earn
money honorably, let him do so. Give
a child a certain amount of allowance.
As soon as he Is old enough, tench
hlin to keep a little biok account.
Let him spend some of his money. Ho
will make mistakes, of course, but bet
ter learn to use good judgment ,
through a 5-oent mistake when a child j
than through a SSOO one when '
grown. Advise a child how to spend
it, but if possible mike him feel that
he is responsible for the result. Every
time that he makes a poor bargain,
let him suffer the natural conse
quences. Teach him system in financ
es. One of our wealthy men made it a
rule to always lay by one-fifth of his
income for a nest egg. A certain pro
portion should be given to benevolent
and religious purposes.
By teaching a child honor and good
judgment in the use of money, you
teach him much that goe3 into the
making of a good citizen.- -Good
Housekeeping.
Woman'* I-ove of Jewel*.
11l all countries and in all ages
women seem to have inherited a love
for precious stones, says the Chicago
Chronicle, and it is no wonder that
these gems are popularly supposed to
exercise some subtle magnetism that
influences their nature. This inherent
passion may account in a measure for
the recent craze for some mascotic
jewel, a survival of medieval super
stition. Upon impressionable people
certain gems appear to wield a potent
influence. Who has not listened to
weird tales of some heirloom talis
man, which, when lost or stolen, pres
aged the ruin of a noble house? A per
son with a vivid imagination might
even believe in the theory of the
Pythagoreans, who formulated the
doctrine that inamimate things are
endowed with souls. Certain evolu
tionists of today trace the origin of
man bach to stones, asserting that in
their adamantine bosoms they con
tain the all-prevading essence of
spirit, and that the spark emitted
from their crystalline hearts is the
rfevelation of the imprisoned soul
within.
From time immemorial jewels have
served as propitiatory offerings at
holy shrines, as token of amity from
one crowned head to-nnothor, as mys
tic messages of affection between dis
tant friends, as pledges of constancy
exchanged between plighted lovers.
Men have bled and died, kingdoms
have crumbled, families have been
rent assundor, husband and wife
parted over the disputed possession
of some coveted jewel. Perhaps poor
Marie Antoinette of ill-starred mem
ory might have kept her pretty head
upon her shoulders had it not been for
the unfortunate affair of the diamond
necklace. Women in all ages have
succumbed to the temptation of
gems.
The Oollege Girl.
Tile college life of American girls
today is all and more than its best
friends hoped for it in the days when
the higher education of women was
still experimental. The girls who are
now in llarnard, Vassar, Bryn Mawr,
{ladcliffe or Wellesley were in their
cradles then. They have grown up
since the days of alarm that college
life would ruin the health and detract
from the womanliness of women.
Modern college girls have been
reared in good health, and in the spir
it of outdoor life; bicycling, walking,
swimming, tennis, rowing, basketball
and gymnasium exercises are becom
ing more and more integral parts of
their lives. They have never been called
"tomboys," as outdoor girls used to
be. More of them dance than former
ly; girls from evangelical households
also are allowed to dance by thous
ands nowadays, and this, too, is to
their advantage. College girls may
now spend their four years of study
with increasing good health and
strength, and also with increase of so
cial grace and knowledge.
It is found by a comparison of cus
toms in half a dozen of our leading
colleges for women that even the haz
ing which is given the freshman is of
a sort to straighten out any chanc9
unsocial kinks they may have, and
teach them the amenities of inter
course. This has been well described
as "intellectual hazing," since it is
rather by stings of words than more '
palpable means that correction is ad- !
ministered. Th clubs and societies in
the women's colleges all tend to fit a
girl for the larger life of society when i
she leaves college, and in most of
them there is much more dancing than '
would once have been thought aca- :
demic. This is especially the case with I
the "co-eds" in universities for men.
The overwhelming courtesy of sen- '
iors, juniors and sophomores to fresh- i
men in more than one of the women's !
colleges is a curious ordeal for a shy j
girl. She is made to feel at once by
many attentions that she belongs to I
an important body social, and that !
only by swift rising to meet the de
mands upon her can she show her j
worthiness to cuter into the life of I
the community. There are times when '
the spirit of class contest waxes warm j
in an interclass game of basketball or
an interclass boat race. But in gen- '
eral the college spirit and the spirit !
cf personal friendliness and good will i
are so strong that rivalry is consist- I
cntiy ,-portsmanlikc.
In the same spirit as the gymna- i
Blum exercises the Intellectual gym- j
nasties are carried on. Girls make j
I high jumps cr swift rushes and go I
through ground and lofty tumbling, ]
both mental and physical, with a sim- j
plicity, an insouciance, an utter ab- j
sence of conceit nowadays; this was |
not quite true of the pioneers in the 1
higher education for women. Life |
was more strenuous for them. The I
new girl thinks little or nothing of :
competition with men—a topic that i
occupied the thoughts of her forbears, j
Her place is made for her in the col- !
lego world as completely as it was in !
the high school. She fills it with grace !
and strength and goes forth from it
to meet the duties of life with trained '
faculties, with a lack of self-con- j
sciousness and Immense potency fo: 1
! good.--New York Mail and Express, i

Don't let the little ones sleep in cot>

! them some flannelette sleeping suits
I or night gowns. If you do this, have
I warm, light clothing on the beds and
keep the windows open, whatever the
weather. You will find that the little
ones will very seldom be troubled by
colds or coughs. A screen between the

is more draft from a slightly opened
window than from one wide open, so
don't be satisfied to have it open oniy

Inmy Photograph Holder*.
Fancy photograph holders may he

| covered with embroidered pieces of

watercolor paper painted and mounted
on a heavy foundation of wood or
cardboard. Fancy silk or cretonne
covers are easy to make, a ribbon bow
at each end of the holder serving to
I ornament them. These holders con

sewed together below, so that the pho

j cut in symmetrically curved lines or
I scallops.
Moth* in the Carpet*.
1 It is of special importance to see
that there are no moths in your car
pets before they are put away in the
spring, and also before they are re
laid in the fall. Should there be any
doubt about it, lay a wet towel over
the suspected place, cover it with a
; piece of heavy paper, press with a hot
| iron, and the steam will effectually
j destroy any eggs, larva or insects that
• have escaped notice. After the carpet
j is thoroughly cleaned and renovated
; roll and wrap in a tight cover. When
| it is to he put down again brush the
, edges of the floor with turpentine or
I coal oil, being sure to get in all the
cracks. Sprinkle salt plentifully over
| the face of the carpet next to the
: washboards and on any edges that are
:to be turned under. From experience
It has been found that salt effectually
! prevents the carpet from being eaten
! by moths, buffalo bugs or any such
I "varmints." It has no odor, does not
| discolor, is easily appned and is an
i excellent preventive.
Cleuiillno** 111 tile Sick Komn.
Even in the ordinarily well man
aged household, according to a phy
sician, there is little idea of the per
fect cleanliness that is required in
the sick room. Old furniture, old pa
per on the walls, old carpets are
sources of impurity and consequently
dangerous to a marked degree. Some- •
times the wall paper, while fresh and
new in itself, has been put on over
an old layer, thus providing an eco
nomical resort for germs. Old carpets
are cleaned superficially with a broom,
which at the same time scatters the
dust through the air to settle on the
furniture and pictures and to he waft
ed off into the air again by means of
the feather duster. Old upholstered
easy chairs or couches are hound to
encourage disease, a3 is anything
which provides a lurking place for
dust. Descending to the kitchen, look
well to the state of your dish rags.
These should be washed and dried in
the open air as religiously as if they
were napkins or table cloths. A dish
rag or cloth that does service day af
ter day and is simply rinsed out after
