Her Unknown
Gwendollne Travers. who was ready
to be wooed and won for a wife. met
George Merryman, who straightway
caught her fancy. Mr. Merryman was
attentive to her for a time, then sailed
off to sip honey from another flower.
One day Mrs. Travers said:
"Gwen. what has become of George
Merry man?"
"Gone over to the enemy."
"What enemy?"
"Louise Childs. She has been angling
for him while he has been paying at
tention to me and finally hooked him."
"And what have you been doing
"Nothing. If he prefers Louise I
don't see how I can hellp it."
"And so you are content to have a
designing girl take your lover a'.vay
from you?"
"I am above design in such matters.'
"Yes, you are made of too good stuff
to take an unfair advantage of a rival.
but you can at least act as though you
still considered George a friend, or I
can do it for you. I'm going to invite
him to dinner."
"Oh, mamma. don't"'
There was no reply to this. Mrs.
Travers went to her writing desk.
wrote the Invitation and sent it to Mr.
Merryman. It was accepted and on
the appointed evening the gentleman
appeared duly clad in his "glad rags"
and a rose in his buttonhole. He look,
ed rather proud of himself, for he could
not but regard the Invitation an effort
to draw him back to his first allegiance
and it flattered him.
Louise received him as graciously as
it he had not suddenly dropped from
being attentive to her and begun to
buzss another girl. As she was too
proud to go after him, she was too
proud to let him see that his change
hurt her. She did her best to act nat
urally and friendly and succeeded.
Those were all the conditions re
There was no other guest present.
except Mr. Merryman, and the dinner
went off much more pleasantly than
might have been expected. The truth
Is that young men are usually drifters.
To a girl the matter of her settlement
with the man she is to marry is an
important epoch in her life. The man
usually doesn't count on settling.
Many men don't wish to settle, and
some Would run away from a settle
ment. George Merryman enjoyed the
preliminaries of matrimony, but had
no use for the article Itself.
All was going pleasantly at the din
ner when there came a ring, and a
servant brought in a box addressed in
a man's hand to Louise Merryweather
bearing the trade name of a well
known florist. Opening it, there lay
a supply of cut flowers.
"Why, there's no card with it!" ex
claimed Louise.
Mrs. Travers paid no more attention
to the matter than it her daughter re
ceived flowers every day. The good
lady was giving a servant orders con
cerning the dessert which was about
to be brought In.
"Mamma," said Louise, enlivened
with pleasure and cuarlosity, "some one
has sent me a box of flowers anony
"Well, my dear, you needn't fear but
the sender will taur up in time.
Young men don't make such offers to
young ladies without intending to get
the credit of the gift."
Louise was passled and could not
help showing her elation at the attea
tion from her unknown admirer. 8bhe
maited several of the flowers succes
dtvely, then had the coarteey to offer
one to Mr. Merryman. He took it and
laid it on the table beside htim. Pres
eatly be handed It back to her, saying:
"xese me: I appreciate your gift
but I don't like to accept a flower sent
by an admirer. The flowers were tn
tended for you, not for me."
There was a touach of bitterness In
his tone and his manner when be said
this that smacked of pique, to say
nothing of downright jealousy. Louise
looked serious, and her mother re
proved the butler, who had brought the
box into the dining room.
"Hereafter, James," bshe msaid to him.
"when anything comes to the bouse
while we are at dinner you will leave
it in the hall till we have fniahed."
Merryman had come to dine with his
friends, feeling that he should exert
himaelf to act cordially. After the
flower eplsode he found it diffcult. in
the first place. Louise had shown no
feelinag at his dropping her, and, In the
second, some one was evidently ready
to take hle place. After dinner he and
she were left alone by her mother.
Atiep ytng little or nothing for some
time, with a scowl on his face, Merry
man broke forth:
"It' all bosh for you to say you
don't know from whom those fowers
came. Doubtless the fellow sends
them so often that it's not necess.ary
fbr him to put tn a card. It you're en
gaged you might uas well say so."
Mr. Merryman was a gentleman, and
nothing but dowaright jealousy could
have forced him into any such rude
nesr. Louise saw her advantage and
made the most of It. With quiet dlig
nlty she uaskeFby what right be made
such demands upon her. The game
was irWon. Merryman left the house
Jotal that, after all her folly had not
cost him the girl be loved.a
The next day fnuse went to the
orbst and asked who sent her the
"They am ebharged to Mr. Traversa"

Marshal Suvaroff. when receiving a
dispatch from the hands of a Itussian
sergeant who had greatly distinguish
ed himself on the Danube, attempted
to confuse the messenger by a series
of whimsical questions, but found him
fully equal to the occasion. "How
many fish are there in the sea?" asked
Suvaroff. "All that are not caught
yet." was the answer. "How far is it
to the moon?" "Two of your excel
lency's forced marches." "What would
you do if you saw your men giving
way In battle?" "I would tell them
that there was plenty of whisky be

"I say It now." answered Suvaroff.

Aunt Sally Warner. as she was fa
pilliarly called by everybody, wanted
a new calico dress. and she went to
Smith's dry goods store in the village
of Clyde to price around and beat
down and finally pay the price of 7
cents a yard. She was in.pecting pat
terns when Uncle Silas Frisbie camet
in. When they had greeted each other
she turned her back to the calico and
"Uncle Silas. you know I have had
three husbands."
"I know it's three or four or five or
along there somewhere. 'P'ears to lme
you spend most of your time getting
married and burying husbands."
"Silas." site says in tones of conti
dence. "I've made mistakes in my three
marriages. and I don't want to make
one in my fourth. I don't admit that
there'll be a fourth, but if I should
happen to decide to marry ag'in I don't
want to be taken in. Hlow is a widder
woman to Judge a man?"
"Well, now. if I was thinking of mar
rying ag'in. which I hain't, as I've got
an old woman and five young uns. I'd
first hunt around for a soft pine shingle
Then I'd sharpen up my jackknife and
sit down by my lonesome in some place
where no durned dog or calf was likely
to come rooting around. and then I'd
whittle and think and think and whit
tie. Mebbe I'd whittle and think for a
whole week, but when I got through
I'd know that I was correct"
"But I can't whittle."
"No, but you can knit. and that's Just
as good. Who is the feller who is
sparking you this time?"
"It's a man named Lemuel Johnston.
and he's about fifty years old."
"And what have you made up your
mind about him?"
"I haven't made it up at all. That's
what I'm asking your advice for."
"I see. Well. Ill do the best I can.
If I was a widder woman and a man
come along and appeared to have de
signs agin me I'd get out my knitting
and watch him as he talked, and I'd
remember certain things-to wit,
"A man who sits cross legged most
of the time is purty certain to be lazy.
"A man who stands around with his
hands in his pockets will kick like a
steer if dinner isn't ready on the minit.
"The man who comes courting and
rings in poetry is going to raise a row
after marriage If his wife don't like fat
"The man who is narrow between
the eyes and carries a sharp nose has
a widder's possessions figured to a
"The man who sighs and shakes his
head in a mournful way and wishes he
could do more for the heathen in Af
rica is going to keep mightily close tab
on your pin money after marriage.
"A freckled face man is generally a
contented man. but whether contented
with his lot or to let his wife build
the fire in the morning is a thing you
have got to find out later on.
"There are men who come courting
who are soft spoken and move about
like a eat. After marriage they will
yell at the oxen so as to be heard a
mile away.
"The boisterous man is apt to be
hearty and good natured, but be will
wake the baby up every time he comes
Into the house and let all the family
quarrels be known all over the neigh
"A man who sits and rubs his hands
and smiles and uses precisae language is
thinking how much tee and coffee he
will allow you to measure out for a
drawing after marriage.
"A scowl between a man's eyes
means eoncentration of thought, but
the trouble is that you don't know
what be has concentrated on. It may
be love, and it may be spenulatlon.
"A wtdder woman In szlng up a
feller who has come sparking should
take a good look at his mouth. If it
is unusually wide his talk will never
go much beyond cabbages, but If It's a
woman's mouth bell be a good hand
at saying cutting things. If It droops

Wrongly Labeled.
The author of "Two Years In the
Forbidden City," the Princess Der
Ling, was a lady in waiting at the
court of the famous empress dowager
of China. Her majesty, the princess
tells us, had an excellent estimate of
herself. "I have often thought." she
once confessed. "that I am the nmost
clever woman that ever lived and
that others cannot conmpare with mine.'
Notwithstanding this favorable oiiu
ion, there were interesting lapses in
universal knowledge. as when Miss
Carl painted her portrait, and her mns
jesty noticed the artist's signature in
the corner of the canvas.
"Well, I know foreigners do some
funny things." she remarked, "bhut I
think this is about the funniest I ever
heard of. Funcy putting her name on
my picture. This will naturally con
vey the impression that it is a portrait
of Miss Carl and not a portrait of my
self at all."
Even after the princess-who was of
western edncation-had explained, and
the empress hiad consented to allow
the signature to remain, she was any
thing but satisfied.
Don't Be Too Expert.
Having graduated from a business
college with honors, the young inan
thought himself competent to tackle
any problem in banking that could be
learned without actual experience, but
the old clerk knew better.
"Can you make an erasure so neatly
that it would take an expert to tell
where it had been done?" he asked.
"Yes. sir," said the young man, with
conscious pride.
"Well. for heaven's sake don't tell
your prospective employer so or you
will be looking for a job this time next
year." the old clerk said.
"Employers are afraid of too much
skill in that direction. It gives such
enormous opportunities for fraud that
they will fight shy of hiring you.
"I found that out in my young days.
I also was an expert with the ink
eraser and proudly proclaimed my ac
complishment. Finally when I found
myself toeing the starvation mark I
ceased to boast and have held a good
position ever since."-New York Times.

thing that has a thought in it, some

mand the mind. Fix me up an ad. that
will make a hit when it is published in
the morning papers."
Two hours later the advertising man
laid this on the bank president's desk:

courteously that it was none of his

this nettled him. "It I knew," be sa,

One Eyed Giants.
Sir John Mandeville saw all sorts of
queer things and wrote about them In
his celebrated books of travels. It was
in 1536 that the veracious Sir John
visited a certain group of Isles (yles he

a race of one eyed giants Of them he
says: "In one of these yles ben folk
of grate stature, as giantes, and they
ben hideous for to loke upon. An

another one of these "yles" inhabited
by a race of one legged dwarfs, each
