ADVICE TO THE SHIFTLESS Hard Sense, If Persisted In, Will Otu* come Hard Luck—Don’t Tell Tour Troubles. A very keen politician going ; abroad for an extended tonr ad vertised for a man to relieve him | of the smaller worries of travel ing, says the Londoft Post. He re duced the applicants to one, and was about to complete the nego tiations when the fortunate per son began to tell him of his ca reer, his ambitions, opportunities and misfortunes—agenninehard luck story. The politician listened for awhile,and then suddenly in terposed: “I find that I do not want you,” and when pressed for his reason, added: “I never hire bad-luck people, especially the kind who talk about it.” There seems to be an injustice In this, and there doubtless is. At the same time this politician was a judge of men, or he would not have been a successful politi cian. Most persons who have achieved success are obliged to lis ten to bad-luck stories, despite their efforts to avoid them. The main reason the modern merchant or manager protects himself with a guard of doorkeepers and ante rooms is to escape callers who want to take np his time by nar ratives of their misfortunes. Every large center of popula tion has its army of bad-luck suf ferers, and among them are men of education, men who are almost, but not quite, strong enough to reach success. Their point of view is out of compass, their bear ings are wrong; their attitude is that some one who has succeeded must make amends for their own shortcomings. These unfortun ates are probably the most hope less persons in the world—hope less not so much in their own ideas as in the possibilities of their reformation. When a man places his own inadequacy on ill luck he is not worth anything to anybody—not even to himself. Luck is the tide, nothing more. The strong man rows with it if it makes toward his port. He rows against it if it flows the other way. Fair or foul, flood or ebb, he rows. And the world has very lit tle time to waste on the man who complains that the tide did not turn at every bend to suit his course. NO TIPS FOR HIS WAITERS. Hew York Restaurant Man Makes a Discovery—Then Came a Change In His System. “My waiters get very few tips,’* said a downtown restaurant man, “and I don’t have to print notices to my customers that they are not expected to tip the waiter. It is really very simple and within the power of a restaurant manager to stop the custom if he wants to do so,” says the New York Times. “You see, when a customer tips a waiter regularly he expects to get extra service or to have his check scaled down, and the res taurant is beaten by the game. In other words, the tipping of wait ers took money out of mj pocket. “I said nothing, bnt kept my eyes open for a few days, and I saw that it was in handing the check to the customer that the waiters got their tips. When they were doubtful of a man they actually made him ask for his check. That observation made it simple. “Without a word about tips 1 made a rule that when a cus tomer was served the waiter should immediately lay down by his plate the check for the amount ordered and change it subsequent ly if he ordered more. That left no opportunity for the waiter ts dumbly suggest that his hand was open, and it made it easy for the customer to get away without giv ing a coin to the man who had served him. “In a week tipping had practio ally ceased in my restaurant and the checks began to indre^se to the right size. All paid for what they got and others increased their orders as soon as they were relieved of paying tribute to the waiter. It worked admirably and helped my business. Restaurant men are foolish aot to stop the tipping Imposition. They can do It if they want to.” ▲▼•rage Han.

Kata, tha Bum boat Woman, Who Haa Hauntad Washington’a Navy yard for lorty Tears. ; Kate, the bumboat woman, is the title applied to an odd oren ture who has been haunting the Washington navy yard for the past 40 years, says the Washing ton Post. Her name is Kate Royal, and as far bhlck and further than the oldest man connected with the yard eon remember, Kate has been making her daily trips with her basket of candy, fruit and notions to ssll to tho sailors who visit Washington on Uncle flam’s boats. Kate has a speaking acquaintance with all the great men ef the army and navy. She has letters and presents from most of thorn, including Amir ala Dewey, Sampson and Schley. * Kate made her first visit to the yard during the civil war. Bhe was a yoong woman In those days, and her bright Irish ways made her a great favorite. In later years, when age began to sreep upon her, she began to form an opinion that she was an aetlve and indispensable part ef the navy. She considered herself an enlisted person and beoame as de voted to the eanse as the most loyal man. It is just 40 yearfe since i Kate began to consider herself 4 sailor. She has bad tea red enlistment ■tripes, representing four years •ach, placed upon a ield of blue cloth, and this she were to cele brate the anniversary. Kate is a pictureuque charac ter. Her ferns is bowed beneath the weight of TO years, and her face is seamed with the marks of time. Only her eyee still retain the brilliancy of youth, and they sparkle with the dame Irieh hu mor and good nature that gleamed from them 40 years ago. Kate hae no regular hears of business. She is on hand with the rising sun, and the late hours of ; the evening iad her still on duty. She gathem her little stock of trade around her under the fore castle of one of the United States boats lying up at the yard, and with the sails? boys lying aronnd her on the floor she will tell them tales of her youth or crone Irish j melodies for them until the signal for lights out is passed around, ' and the sailors seek their swing [ ing hammocks, and Kate sboul ders her basket of goods and wan ders home. HERO AND THE TOOTHACHE Remarks Thman by a Disillusioned Girl—He Had Faced Death at Santiago. “I used to be given to heto | worship,” said the girl with ! the Russian sable muff to her companies of the long, dark eyelashes, aocording to the New | York Bun. “Bnt, dear, we change. | do we not? Do you recall how I spent the last of my pin money to attend a reception that the slub arranged for a oertaia here? “Well, the week before laat I was coining up from Palm Be-aeb.

At first ths chemists took it good-naturedly, but latterly It has become quite s nuisance. One chemist in tbs Roe 4e Riveii has just hit spea a way of getting even with the would-be jokers. He has made a coneoctiee which hs calls “radium sirup," aad -when the practical joker arrives gravely bands oat a small fwsustity, charging aa antra tone testa for the bottle. 1 • I A “SHOWERPROOF" CLOTH. German* Treat Ordinary Materials with Petroleum—Curious Aquatic Displays in Tailors' Windows. It has usually been thought that rubber was about the only substance which would render cloth waterproof, although oil silk is coated with another one, a prep aration of linseed oil. However, “Showerproof” cloth is known as that which repels water very largely aDd yet remains porous, appearing in all respects like or diary wetable cloth. The method* of treatment of such cloth are often trade secrets, and even the patent specifications do not di-; ▼ulge all that must be done to achieve a satisfactory result. “Petroleum,” a German period ical, says that the oil to whidh that paper owes Its name is one of the most successful showerproof preparations. It says that the only reliable shower proof is ob tained by impregnating the cloth outside and in with a fine film of waxes. Paraffin wax is the staple, but owing to its low melting point It is not fit for use alone. The com position used hr so alloyed with other waxes and chemicals thatat the boiling point of water the was stands firm. A rather elaborate preparatory form must be gone through, and after the wax has been applied a finishing process Is required. The interesting fact re mafna f if tsi nnf haIaiiim fT» n • keeps ont the wet. In tailors’ win dows in Germany many aquatic displays have been arranged to show that cloth can mysteriously be made to exhibit the power of the duck’s back. Wool, cotton, silk, linen, velvets, braids, and even sails, awnings and tent cloths are thus wrapped in an In visible film of rock oil. PHYSICAL CONSCIOUSNESS. Th* Brain In Certain States ef Activ ity Can Act on the Organic Functions. “Cenestliesia” is the name given to the general feeling we have of the existence of onr owa bodies, says the London Globe. This sense of existence is chiefly owing to accidental and local impres sions awakening or stimulating the sensibility, bat it is completed by a oertain obvenae oonoeious ness of the exercise of the organic functions, for example, respira tion. It is by this sensation that the spiritual Ego perceives itself existing locally in the limited ex tent of the organism. In perfect health this feeling is continuous, uniform, and equal, and therefore, not special or local. In order to be remarked a certain exaltation of well-being or distinct uneasiness Is required. In the hypnotio state certain subjects have a mors or less distinct perception of their internal organs and can exert oer tain action over them. In fact, they can modify at will all the functions of the “vegetative* life, for instance, the beating of the (mart Tli« fa/>t aim tv a that tlu brain in certain states of activity can act on the organic function*. If there is a nervosa current from the brain to the organs there is also, perhaps, a oontrary current from the organs to the brain. Dr. Cromer, Liebault, and ©them, maintain that some hypnotic sub jects perceive their internal ©* gans, and even those ©f other pea sons with whom they are in hyp notic relations. iBunertelles. The manufacture of immortelle wreaths in Paris occupies at least 1,500 persons. The immortelles are gathered abont the beginning of October, and come chiefly from the arid hills in the middle and south of Prance. They are brought te the markets in their natural condition, and the yellow blossoms are dyed green, red and white, and woven into wreaths by •pecial workmen In readiness for All Raia+s’ and All Souls’ days, when all good Parisians visit their relatives’ graves. On these “fetes des morts” the gates of the cerae ! teries are beset with crowds of dealers in immortelle wreaths, wire crosses and bead crowns. At Pere la Chaise alone more tha* 200.000 persons are calculated t» visit the cemetery, and the sale of Immortelle wreaths varies from 10.000 to 25,000.—Golden Penny. The Stingy Man.
