A MAN'S POCKETS.
What on Barth Does He Want With
Biphteen of ThemT
The great fundamental difference be
tween the modern woman and the
modern man Is this—that whereas the
raiment of the modern woman has no
pockets at all the raiment of the mod
era man has nothing else.
Indeed, a man may he defined at an
animal with p passion for pockets. If
fon ware aaked to say offhand how
many pockets you possess at a given
moment, yon would be stumped.
It would be necessary to make out an
Inventory. In the Drat place, there are
at least Ive In your overcoat. There
art at least five more la your lounge
lacket, fonr la your waistcoat and four
In your trousers. You have therefore
at least eigbtsen pockets.
Now, It Is absurd to aay that any
man need* eighteen pockets Why. It
la almost a sat of pigeonholes! They
ought to bo numbered or lettered. Of
ten a man loses bis railway ticket, and
aftar paying excess fare he Unde It
button In on# of hie dosen and a half
pockets. It takes some time to search
carefully la eighteen little bags.
Man carry a great deal of rubbish In
their pockets. There are few of us who
do not suffer from accumulations of
old letters, paid and unpaid bills, bus
and tram tickets, theater vouchers and
miscellaneous odds and sods.
Wa change our dotaam and Jet asm
from one suit of clothes to another, for
wa am net happy without unnoceosary
fragments of paper.
I ones knew a man who carried aa
amashig assortment of useless things
In his pockets. He always had a lump
of chalk, a place of string, a small
Ivory Inch rale, a penknife, a pencil
and n pair of compaaaea.
In hie pocketbook he carried stamps,
sticking plaster, telegraph forms and
pins. Another man I know always car
rlaa half a doaen silver cigar caeca
shaped like torpedoes with one cigar la
Boom man have a mania for carry
ing enormous bunches ef keys. They
to net use more than two of thorn ev
ery day, hot they am not happy unleae
thay have a hay fur everything they
have ever owned. When they leas
their keys, It to a tragedy.

enough revenue to pay for old age
pensions. It would bo much mom

BEAUTY OF MARS.
Wonderful Color and Grandeur
vested by the Telescope.
Viewed under suitable conditions,
few sights ran com pit re for luxtuut
beauty and growlUK grandeur with
Marx aa pronented by the telescope.
Framed In the blue of apace, there
floats before the observer'll gaze n
seeming miniature of his own earth,
yet ehauged by translation to the sky.
Within lta churuied circle of light he j
marks apparent continents and seas. 1
now ramifying Into one auofher, now j
stretching In unique expanse over 1
wide tracts of disk and capped at their !
poles by dazxllng ovals of white. It re- !
calls to him his first lessons lu geogra
phy, where the earth was shown him
set ethereally ■ amid the stars, only
with an added sense of reality in the
apotheosis. It Is the thlug* Itself,
stamped with that all pervading. In
detin Hide hall mark of authenticity In i
which the cleverest reproduction some- .
In color largely lien this awakening
touch that Imbues the picture with the
seoae of actuality. And very vivid are
the tints, so salient and so uullke that
their naming In words conveys scant j
Idea of their concord to the eye. Rose
ocher dominates the lighter regions,
while a robin's egg blue colors the i
darker, and both are set off and em
phasised by the ley whiteness of the
caps. Nor Is either hue uniform. Tone
relieves tint to a further heightening
of effect. In some parts of the light j
expanses the ocher prevails aloue. lu :
others the rone deepens to a brick red,
suffusing the surface with the glow of
a warm late afternoon. No less vari
ous to the blue, uow sinking luto deeps
of shading, uow lightening luto faint
washes that lu placea grade off Insen
sibly Into oeber Itself, thus making re
gions of Intermediate tint tbe precise |
borders of which are not decipherable
by the eye.
Superimposed upon Its general opa
tine complexion are uow aud then to i
bo noon ephemeral effects. At certain
times and lu certain' placea warm .
chocolate brown baa been known to
supplant the blue. Often, too, cold |
white dots are scattered over the disk, 1
