The Man's Mistake.
Out of loytiit3 to his own sex the
manager of t he tonulit' suilt depart
meet dliscihari'd his younig woniar
stenographller ianid hirred a ltan. The
first batch of letters dic tated to the
man were written to atbout a hundred
old customers, whmll he invited to ex
amine privately a lot of exclusive gair
ments before they were p:lced on sale.
The day after the letters were mailed
the women flocked into the store, but
the fire that burned in their eyes was
the fire of the avenger rather than of
the bargain hunter. One word which
each woman had underlined in her
letter explained their wrath. The gar
ments, so the manager hald meant to
say, had been designed for women of
stock figure, such as they possessed,
but the male stenographer had drawn
an the alphabet and had written it
"No woman on earth would have
been guilty of such a mistake,"
growled the manager.

had her job back.-Philadelphia Led.

"Fudge" is :t word with a history.
There are prosaic etymologists, as
there always are, who derive it from
a Gaelic word meaning deception, but
Isaac Disraeli's view Is much more in
teresting. Ile derives it from a certain
Captain Fudge, who seems to have
been a marine Munchausen. "You i
fudge It" is said to have been his
crew's equivalent to the modern
"Rats!" In a collection of some pa.
pers of William Crouch, the Quaker,
published in 1712 it is recorded that
eme Degory Marshall informed Crouch
that "in the year 1664 we were sen

e. When a widow is not a widow, but
has a husband hiking around the
e country somewhere, they call her a
1 grass widow. The term might as well
be a hay widow or straw widow, but
it is always given as grass.
Miss Minerva Saunders was a grass
widow. She should have called her
1 self Mrs., but the report had come to
,r her that her missing husband, Abel,
had been seen to drown himself in a
millpond. She waited a year and then
called herself Miss and removed to
Perl, nsville. She had not been there
three months when Moses Drew,
farmer, saw her at church and ad
mired her and began courting. He
should have been told straightaway
that Abel was a deceiving husband
d and that that drowning business might
have been one of his little tricks, but
he wasn't. lie went right ahead and
courted tinder the idea that he was in
love with a miss. About eight months
after meeting the woman he asked
her to be his wife. It was then nearly
two years since the absconding Abel
was supposed to have gone to the hot
tom of the pond. and Miss Saunders
blushed and stammered and said she
That was enough for one night. On
the next the wedding day was set.
On the second the wedding day was
planned. On the third as the happy
couple sat holding hands the absconder
walked into the house. He had not
been drowned. He had not come any
where near it. Of course there was
excitement, more of it than as itf a
circus elephant had broken loose.
Abel apologized for his advent. He
was sorry he came. He realized what
a worthless critter he was and he
could never forgive himself for hav
ing broken up a happy marriage. He
would go right away and commit snl
dcde and let the matrimonial event
take place. He asked for a dollar and
got it and then disappeared. Mr.
Drew had to be talked to in a sooth
ing way for a long time, but he finally
sat himself down to wait until the
grass widow became a real widow.
In about three months a stranger call
ed on Mrs. Saunders to say that he
lived twenty miles away and was a
carpenter. He had a man named Abel
Baunders up on the scaffold with him
one day when it fell to the ground and
Abel was a dead man. He only had
time to tell his name and express the
hope that his dear Minerva would now
go ahead and marry Moses.
In five days more the preacher would
have tied the knot, but Abel walked
into the house again. It was some one
else that had fillen from the scaffold
and been buried by the town. If pro
vided with a cheap suit of clothes he
would make an end of himself this
Three months went by and nothing
from Abel. During this interval there
was no talk about the wedding day.
There must be no more surprises. It
was lucky that the couple had gone
slow. Mrs. Saunders received by mail
from a town fifty miles away five af
fidavits that a man who had been
found frozen to death in a snow bank
was the lamented Abel. As the frozen
legs had broken short off In carting
the body around there was no doubt
"Please excuse me for saying these
look good to me," said Mr. Drew as
he looked up after reading the affida
"Yes, Abel is sure gone this timq,"
sighed the wife.
An hour later Abel Saanders walked
in and held his toes to the fire to toast
Minerva succeeded in fainting away,
but Moses Drew arose in his anger
and shouted out:
"Then you were not trosean stfl"
"Me? Oh, no!"
"And they didn't break the legs edf
"Legs? Oh, my legs are all right"
"And you've come back!"
'"Come back? Yes, but rm not going
to stay long. I thought ra go out skat
ing tomorrow and skate into an air
hole. You can both come along and
see me do it, and then there won't be
any more false alarms."
"You go to grass, sir, and I'll go
homel This is a pretty muss for a re
spectable man to get into!"
Mr. Drew stamped out of the house,
and Minerva got chilly on the floor
and returned to conselousnms to fall
to weeping and to wail out:
"Oh, Abel I couldn't have believed
it of you!"
"No, of ceerse not I orter got
rozen, but I didn't Ill be all right
tomorrow, though. Don't cry, Nerva;
"Oh, he'll be all right tin a day or 1
two. Just feels hurt at my coming 1
backl Thinks I don't mean to skate
into an air hole, but he shall see. Yes,
state right in, and that will be the last
of me. Cheer right up, girL"
It is a matter of record that Abel
Saunders went out on the millpond
next morning and kept his promise. 1
More than twenty persons saw him
deliberately skate into an air hole and
his body shoot over the high dam.
They looked for it, and though it was
not recovered there was no doubt about
the death. Three months later the
long delayed marriage took place. It
was a sure thing about Abel this time.
But was it? Six months after the mar
rLage a man was killed almost in front
of the Drew house by a wagon run
alng over him. Sure as you live it was
Abel Saunders. He was coming home
to say that he was still alive, but

ut I had Just entered society at the age
be of nineteen when my father died lu
a solvent and from affluence we were re
?ll duced to poverty.
Ut I found a position as governess in
the family of a Mrs. Woodward, a
ss widow with several children. Lucy, a
r- girl nearly my age, was the oldest
to daughter and. of course, I had noth
.1, ing to do with her education. Then
a there was a son, Harry, absent at
n tending lectures. He came home dur
to ing vacations, but paid me no atten
re tion whatever during these visits. lie

pying the social world in which I had
e just made my debut and disappeared.
i He used to talk a great deal about
d them, and I thought that had it not
it been for my misfortune had he met
it me in the gay world he would have
spoken of me in the same way.
n My duties were to take care of the
S1 little children who had only begun to
d learn. I was something, but not much
y better than a nurse.
Mrs. Woodward was taken down
with typhoid fever. The doctor order
ed a trained nurse, but when she came
e the invalid directed that I be with her
constantly while the nurse should only
attend her when necessary. This
t threw upon me the brunt of the nurs
ing, the trained nurse only carrying
out such work as the doctor's assist
ant. And just when she was most
Sneeded she took herself off to accept
a permanent position.
The night the nurse left the patient
had had a hemorrhage, and the doctor
dreaded her having another. He told
t me to keep her in the utmost quiet,
for she was in a dangerous condition.
e Her life depended on this.
e In the middle of the night my mis
tress asked me feebly for some gruel.
tI stepped into the hall and was sur
prised to find the lights that had been
left burning below were out and all
was in darkness. I returned for
matches and went down the staircase.
At the bottom a light was flashed in
my face and a man's voice called
"I want the valuables!"
I was always a timid girl, but in
this case my mistress' condition con
quered fear. I told the man that
I there was an invalid upstairs and if
I knew he was 1i the house it would
her. He evidently did not believe
me. for he spoke very harshly to me,
holding a revolver right in front of
I my face and ordering me to tell him
I where the valuables were kept.
Now, there was not a bit of silver

not In the sickroom. My mistress had
always kept them there in health and
insisted on the silver being carried
there every evening after dinner.
They were nothing to me beside her
life. I begged the man so hard to be

that I would bring him everything of
value, that he permitted me to go for
But how was I to excuse myself to
my mistress for carrying the things
out? If I told her nothing of what
had occurred would she not believe
that I was robbing her when she was
too ill to stop me? Her son and
daughter were both in the house, but
to awaken either one of them would
be death to their mother. I must
think quickly. What put the plan I
adopted into my head I know not. It
came like a flash.
Going back into my mistress' room.
I began to turn the gas up and down
finally turning it out as if by mistake.
"Oh, dear," I said, "how unlucky!

them and picking up the box in which
the silver was kept, I went downstairs.
The burglar was waiting for me. He
turned his light on what I brought
him and remarked that there was a
good lot of swag. Then he ordered

clothesline hanging against the wall,

trying to free myself. My joints were
very supple, and I soon slipped my
hands out of the rope, after which It
was no great work to free myself.
Taking up the gruel that was on the t
range, I went back to my mistress and,
rlighting the gas. gave her what she r
would take of it. Then, telling her to
try to get some sleep, I went down
stairs to the telephone and reported
the robbery to the police. Fortunately ,
