In Thin Act, It la Suid, Von Mar Read a Mun'a Character. No woman should marry a man till she has seen him sharpen a lead pen cil. She can tell by the way he does It whether he Is suited to her or not Here are a few infallible rules for her guidance iu the matter: The man who holds the point toward him and dose up against his shirt front is slow and likes to have secrets. He is the kind of man who when the dearest girl in the world finds out that there are "others" and asks him who they are and what he means by call lng on them will assume an air of ex cessive dignity. The man who holds the pencil out at arm's length aud whittles away at It, hit or miss. Is impulsive, jolly, good natured and generous. He who leaves a blunt point Is dull and plodding and will never amount to much. He is really good hearted, but finds his chief pleisure in the commonplace things of life. He who sharpens his pencil an inch or more from the point Is high strung and Imaginative and subject to ex uberant flights of fancy. He will al ways be seeking to mount upward und accomplish things in the lijj'her re gions of business aud art, and his wife's greatest trouble will lie to hold him down to earth aud prevent his off altogether on a tangent. anger, but he Is so undeviating from a fixed principle that he would drive a The man who sharpens his pencil all around smoothly and evenly, ns though It were planed off in an automatic sharpener, is systematic aud slow to wotunu with a sensitive temperament to distraction in less than six months On the contrary, he who Jumps In and leaves the sharpened wood as Ja ged as saw teeth around the top has a nasty temper and will spnnk the baby on the slightest provocation There are certain women who can __ manage that kind of man beautifully however, and if he gets a wife with n calm, persuasive eye he will come down from his high horse In a few minutes and lie as meek as a lamb. The man who doesn't stop to polish the point of lead once the wood Is cut away has a streak of coarseness In his nature. He who shaves oft the lead till the point Is like a needle Is refined, dell cate and sensitive. He will not be likely to accomplish so much ns hi* more common brother, but he will nev er shock you and is without doubt a good man to tie to.—New York Frogs. _ NotlCB.

There was but one reason why I should fall, and that was aleo-; hoi. I couk •'t keep my men sober. ! There was plenty of prohibition in the territory and just as much liquor. I All aorta of poisonous stuff was ToT\ rr pmo ^ ,T ted * wood alcohol being consumed In large quantities. It was all brought by ped dlers across the lino from Oklahoma. 1 watched v 1th the greatest care to see that none of It was sold about my; camp, but for my life 1 couldn't pre and never saw the men drink It The first thing 1 knew they were all drank. Then work must be stopped till they got sober. I was going by the supply Store one morning and saw a peddler sitting on a keg. Always on the lookout. 1 ask. J him what was in it He told me that: it was kerosene, and on my demanding to sample It be put in a spigot auJ drew kerosene true enough. Neverthe less that nlglit the men were all drank. I went to the store and, looking over ■the stock of barrels and such like, found a number with false bottoms. > small compartment at one end smelt j kerosen*; the rest smelt of whisky. After that I Inspected every nrtl , that could hold liquid when It cams into camp. For awhile I kept out liquor and ■'pt the men at work. Dur lug tills penod I made great headway and fe't sure that If I could continue It I should make good my contract and j pocket enough funds to enable me to live as I liked for the rest of my life, j My work must be finished by the 15th of April, and ou th.H5th of Feb- j ruarj I knew that fifty days' more ; steady work would be ample for the purpose. But early in March the men J got on a spree, which was repeated,; tlie sprees occurring nearer und nearer together us the spring advanced. I watched the supply store, but coo'd discover nothing likely to contain liquor. Butter and eggs were coming In. but In the spring one always looks for these nrtlcles, and there was noth lng suspicious about either of them. O 11 the 20th of March the men wer" all drunk. If I could get them soli,., at once anil keep them sober I could complete my contract; If not I was' doomed. There was a pretty Mexican girl near my camp with whom I had spent many an evening very happily. On the evening In March mentioned, to get rid of the sight of the drunken men and to get my mind off my disap pointment. 1 went over to see little Margarita Farres. "What K the matter, senor? You look as If some great calamity were upon you." I told her of ray troubles. "What will senor give to know how the men get their liquor?" She looked at me rogir lily. She was bewitching "My he.ir " 1 replied on the Impulse. "What use Is the heart without the baud?" she nskod, her eyes dancing with mischief. "The heart, though given and <• dined.

There I heard her opening doors belonging to cupboards and sideboards and tlie clink of glasses. I supposed sbe was Intending to bring me imti* fluid refreshment. What was my stf prise to see her return with a coup' • of eggs each In an eggeup. They were on a tray, and there was a silver spoon for each egg. "I only finished my supper half an hour ago," I said. "But you have not had anything to wash It down." "Wash It down with a ladled ogg?" "We shall see." Setting the tray on a table, she push ed one of the eggs toward me. I broke the shell at the small end with the spoon, while she did the some with the other egg. "Senor, your good health." she said, raising her egg to her lljw. There was tbe unmistakable odor of whisky under my nose. I sipped from the eggshell aud sipped whisky. Tbe girl set her egg on tlie table without tasting It. I looked at her question ingly.
