The motive of this hook is a desire

The problems that confront Ameri

ODD AND INTERESTING.
The latest use for pap?r. according to a
German technical ;.apt>r, is for the manufac
ture of bath robes. The material u=d for
this purpose is somewhat thick, anj re
sembles I'cmnon biotting paper. The bath
robes made of this matsria! cling to the body
immediately after being put on, and, as thfe
pap.r takes up the moisture veij- eagerly,
the drying of the body takes place rapidly.
Furthermore, the paper is a bad conductor
of heat, and as su -h it acts as a protection
against quick changes of the temperature,
L-reventing the wearer from catching cold.
Slipp:is and hoods are also made of the
same material.
The hcuse of Hobenzollern possesses a
fami'i talisman dating back to the end of tha

which each ruler has, when possible, b?fore

packet contains a ring, in which is* set a
black stone, said to have be^n dropped by a
huge toad on the coverlet of a princess of
the family just as she had given bii th to a
son. Frederick the Great found the ring In
an envelope, which also inclosed a memo
randum written by Frederick 1., stating its
value and its mode of transmission. Schnei
der, the librarian o* William 1., d:c!are3
that he saw the packet handed by G lling,
the treasurer, to his royal master on his ac
cession, and further asserts that he. read
his account of the talisman to the enperor,
who fully ccrfirm-td it. The present emperor
never fails to wear on. all great occasions
this Queer ring, and has. like every Hohen
i*4jeru. the deepest respect lor }he quaint
little ornament. Fred-crick, th; Great's father
had the black stone mounted as a ring and
bequi alhtd -H to his son. who believed firmly
in its value as a talisman, and many of th?
documents of that time, deposited in the
archives at Berlin, make mention of it.

"The Revenge of Lucas Helm,"
tianslated from Monsieur Blondel's
original story of the sixteenth century
artist who made a shroud for himself
of an oil painting of his deceased fian

French story. Neverthless. in the
whole tale there is a very lively moral
for the young man or woman "who la

times were the best times, or that there
is real romance in seclusion. Man is
a sociable animal.

NOVEL DRESSING FOR A WISHBONE.
Probably the brightest idea of the holiday
season was a brownie penwiper of a new type.
I'he idea came from Wisconsin, where it was
found at a rural fair.
The foundation for this novelty was a wish
bone from a hen. A little black wax was
added to the sides of the top to add Bymine
try to the head and to each end of the bone
to make it stand level. A ballet skirt was
then adjusted, h.inglng straight down from
the neck and embroidered around the edge.
A poked hat of tbe same material, edged
with beads, was fastened to the head, two
beads stuck into the wax for eyes, and tfio
whole bone painted black.

"Before the Dawn" is the name which
Joseph Leiser has given his collection
of poems, songs and sonnets. (Peter
Paul Book Company, publishers;

His reason for gathering them under

to the universal spirit of expectancy
and uncertainty that broods over the
earth. The theme of the book is best
told in one of its lines, viz., "There
are visions higher than vision."

LITERARY FORECASTS.
"The Theory of the Leisure Class." a
promised book by Thornstein B. Veblen. ot
the Chicago university, arouses a half
humorous curiosity whether the leisure class,
in lieu of something better to do, has taken
to spinning theories or whether the author
has built up a theory about them. But the
publishers. MacMillan company, set us at
rest, for they announce that the book deals
with the leisure class as an institution, and
gives an account of its rise and development
and of Its plane as a factor in the culture
of today. The subject is discussed from the
point of view of an economist, but without
aay unnecessary technicalities, the aim
throughout being to bring out the relation
of the leisure class to the economic side of
modern life. The argument traces the in
fluence of the class and of Its standards
anil Ideals upon current opinions, usages
and habits of life, particularly as affecting
industrial activity and the consumption of
goods. Incidentally, a curious light ta
thrown upon many c«rre»t practices aßd con

servants' hall diqner cornea in for the first

"The History of Japanese Literature."
which Mr. W. G. Aston has written as the
sixth volume in the series that Mr. Gosse
is editing for Messrs. D. Appleton & Co.. dif
fers from those which have preceded it in
the fact that two-thirds of it is translation
and only cue-third narrative or criticism.
This, it is believed, will greatly add to the
pleasure and amusement of the general
reader. The Japanes- have cultivated a vol
uminous literature for more than twelve cen
turies, but forty years ago no English-speak
ing man had read 'one page of a .Tapanesi
book. One point "that is very curious is the
commanding place which women have taken
in Japan since the most ancient times. The
classical writers of the eleventh century were
all women, and Mr. Aston's analysis of and
quotations from their works will be read with
great entertainment. This is certainly one of
the most remote excursions into literary his
tory that has beea made for a long time. '

WHEN YOU LOVE BEST.
Ella Wheeler AVileox Thinks Young
I. me la Perishable.
"When we ace asked 'at what age is a
woman the most beautiful,' or 'at what age
does a woman love more ardently,' it Is nec
essary to consider the climate and the type
before replying." Such is the cautious, re
ply which Ella Wheeler Wilcox gives to. the
implied. question.
'■Climate exerts a great influence; on the
physique, the morals, the miud and *he emo
tions. Rules which, apply to the women of
St. Petersburg or for .Norway do not apply
tt* the women of Italy or Spain or Southern
France.
''Hoy ever, as the American woman seems

that type; j
"Americans are a mixture of many na
tionalities, and the peculiarities of every liv
ing race are to be found cropping out among
our American people. The" typical American
girl is, in truth, physically -and mentally a
composite .photograph of the many varying
nationalities which have produced her.
"She often blooms Into premature young
womanhood and fall 3in love before she
makes her 'teens,' or immediately after
ward. This is an inheritance from her trop
ical ancestors, but where the girl of tropics
buds, blooms, fades and becomes an old
woman before 20, our American girl keeps' in
a state of perpetual bloom until 40, and
sometimes later.
"Not long ago a vision of feminine beauty
and charm captured a .wjnole army post and
fascinated every man, from the commanding
officer dowu to the privates. Whereupon -the
wives, sisters and sweethearts of the" post
set about the feminine, if not estimable task,
of looking up the charmer's past life, and
the only fact which gave them especial pleas
ure was that of discovering her to be half
a hundred years old, despite her beauty of
face and form.
"When the American girl In her teens falls
in love, however well developed her physical
charms may be, her powers of loving are yet
immature. There Is scarcely one case in one

hundred which can be found to disprove this
statement.
"A young girl is fascinated by a man of
fashion, by a mustache, by a fine dancer, and
she allows her sentiment to dominate her
good sense. Oftentimes she is swept away
by the eloquent pleadings of a fluent tongua
and speaking eyes, and she mistakes her
soul of being loved for the love of a lover.
After the honeymoon is over and the reali
ties of life begin to engage the attention of
both parties, the wife sees the man as he is—
a mere boy often, who, save in the role of
Romeo, is utterly devoid- of Interest or at
traction and who is quite her inferior ia
every respect.
"It is then the tragedy of life begins for
her.
"A woman of 2S or 32 judges men from an
entirely different standpoint, and is capable
i of a depth of feeling wholly unknown to the
I girl of IS or JQ. Her aature is riper, he*
emotions more inten»e, her; Judgments mora
mature. - '

" "Yes," said; but how did you know?'
"I explained thatm? conclusion was formed
on geneeal principles. The woman who has

"Her; ije&htt marriage uould under ordi
nary ocduK Jh her 30s, and It
would be a marriage based on strong magnetic
attraction. The third husband would more
than likely be selected merely as a companion
for her declining years— one to whom sha
gave respect and affection, but not ardent
love.
"The lady confessed my estimate to be en
tirely correct in her case, and I have no
doubt it Is a safe summary of all three-ply
married lives."
