TOO MANY.
It was an awkward position to be In,
as*Harry Wentworth fully realized. To
have three pretty girls at one time
in love with him would have been very
flattering and satisfactory to a dude,
or coxcomb, but Harry was i: either one
nor the other. On the contrary, he
was sensitively scrupulous, and consid­
ered three fair admirers quite too
many.
If they had been bold and forward,
he would have felt no compunctions,
but they were sweet and modest girls
who unfortunately cherished an art­
less affection for the same man. He
certainly admired them all, but in a
mild, unsatisfactory way, without sen­
timent or romance.
It troubled him, because he could not
ignore it, and lie finally went to a
cousin for counsel—a bright, shrewd
girl, who, without meddling interfer­
ence, always kept her eyes open.
"Dora," he said, "I want your ad­
vice."
"I am delighted," she exclaimed."
"Delighted?"
"Certainly. Who does not enjoy giv­
ing advice?"
"Then give me yours, for I need it,
sadly situated as I am now."
"It is awkward to have three pretty
girls in love with you."
"Do you know who they are?"
"Lina Forbes, Alice Gray and Ella
Corbin."
"What shall I do?"
"Most young men would be jubilant."
"Then I differ from most young men."
"Do you wish to cure them of their
folly?"
"Is it folly to love me?"
"Certainly, if not reciprocated. But
I can tell you how to effect a speedy
cure."
"Tell me at once, please."
"Assume the airs of a boasting cox­
comb, then see!"
"Severe upon me! Do you think I
could play the part successfully?"
"Of course. Any man can."
"You think we are all so conceited
naturally, that we need only be a little
more honest than usual?"
"I do not think so at all—certainly
not of you. I consider you quite a mod­
est young man."
"Thank you, my dear! Now I will
go home and practice the roll suggest­
ed."
He called, in the first place, upon
Una Forbes, a pretty, simple-minded
blonde who had cared for Harry quite
along time. Although not very observ­
ant, she noticed at. once the change in
his manner for he had assumed a
smiling, complacent air, different en­
tirely from anything she had ever seen
in him before.
"You seem greatly pleased about
something, Mr. Wentworth," she said.
"Have you heard good news?"
"Well, yes," he replied, smiling more
contentedly than ever. "I have just
heard that I am a great favorite with
the ladies. Have I not reason to be
pissed?"
"Who told you that?" she asked
with a suspicious look.
"Oh, more than one person, I assure
you," he replied, as lie changed his
seat for one directly in front of the
ltng mirror, into which he cast fre­
quent well satisfied glances. "It is
very flattering, although it causes a
man much embarrassment at times."
"Does it, indeed?"
"Oh, yes, because a man cannot love
more than one at a time. Now can
he?"
"I do not know, I am sure. Men's
hearts often seem quite elastic."
"But not sufficiently so to love two
or three all in a bunch. I would not
be the means of blighting the affections
of any sweet young creature, for the
world."
"How considerate you are!" lemarked
the girl.
"Oh, Miss Forbes!" he cried, as earn­
estly as if propounding a question of
vast importance, "do you think I would
look better without a mustache?"
"I will consider the matter, and then
tell you," she answered, so curtly, that
he could with difficulty keep from
laughing.
But looking more complacent even
than before, he said:
"Perhaps you thinlc I look equally
well either way?"
"I have said nothing of the kind,"
she declared, with such evident dis­
gust that he thought it best to leave.
"I have accomplished one cure," he
suid to himself, as he turned his steps
toward the home of Alice Gray.
That young lady presented quite a
contrast to Lina, being a bright, lively
brunette, and so great a favorite with
gentlemen, it seemed strange that Har­
ry had not succumbed to her charms.
He assumed the same manner as with
X^ina, and Alice regarded him with evi­
dent surprise.
"Mr. Wentworth." she said abruptly,
"if I did not know you well, I should
thinlq
"What would you think?" he inter­
rupted, with a smile. "Something nice,
I-am sure."
"Well, not exactly. Indeed, I do not
like to tell you."
"I must insist for I really have no
fears."
"Then I will admit that if you were
a stranger to me, I should feel sure you
were the vainest man living."
"But I have reason to be vain. They
tell me I am a wonderful favorite with
ladies."
"Oh, you cannot be in earnest. I sup­
posed you had a flattering opinion of
me."
"You must lie vainer even than I
imagined. Yon certainly cannot say
that I paid you silly compliments."
"Of course not but there are cer­
tain ways—"
"Do you mean to insinuate that I
over tried to attract your attention?"
she demanded, with flashing eyes.
"Oh, Miss Gray, do not excite your­
self," he expostulated. You really tobk
angry."
"I really feel angry. And I had no
Idea that your head could be so com­
pletely turned by a few unmeaning
compliments."
"You do me great Injustice, I assure
you. But I will go now, confident that
you will regret your unkind words."'
"How her eyes did flash!" lie thought
"She has unusual spirit for mich a gen
lle-appearing girl. I will «ee now what
Miss Corbin will say to my little com­
edy."
But he found it difficult to continue
liis "little comedy" when in that young
lady's society.
She looked at him in such a grave, In­
quiring way that he felt uncomfortable
and ashamed and the effort necessary
to sustain his assumed character made
him appear much more like a fool than
he desired.
After awhile Ella shook her head re­
provingly.
""Why do you refuse your smiles?" he
asked with an exasperating simper.
"Is this a masquerade, Mr. Went­
worth? If it is, you are attempting
what you cannot carry out."
"Now Miss Corbin, what makes you
think—"
"I do not think, I know. Please be
your natural self, and tell me why—"
here she stopped, and as the bright
color rushed to her cheeks, he wondered
that he had liever noticed her loveliness
before.
"What did you wish me to tell you?
he asked.
"I cannot understand why you wished
to assume the manners of a—"
"A coxcomb? Please forget It. I only
wanted to see—"
But Harry was naturally forward ana
truthful, consequently he could not tell
a string of falsehoods with those clear,
gi ave eyes looking reproachfully into
his.
"Ah!" she exclaimed. "You cannot
explain."
And she blushed again even more
vividly.
"What a dolt I have been!" he
thought, and his manner suddenly be­
came intent and eager.
He was inclined to indulge in senti­
ment (unusual with him), but she gave
him no encouragement, growing colder
and more reticent as his words and
looks assumed a greater warmth.
He went away feeling dispirited and
annoyed. The next morning Lina
Forbes went bright and early to call
on Alice Gray.
"Was Harry Wentworth here last
night?" she inquired almost immediate­
ly.
'Yes, he was," Alice answered with
a shrug.
"Was he perfectly horrid?"
"Just detestable!"
"I hate him!" Lina declared.
"I despise him! He deserves nothing
but contempt. It makes me furious to
think how often I have slighted ten
times nicer men for him."
"I never will speak to him again."
"Speak to him? I will not notice
him any more than I would a terrapin."
At the same time Harry Wentworth
was with his cousin reporting results.
"It is all over with me," he said, "as
regards the Misses Forbes and Gray.
More disgusted individuals I never
saw."
"It was not perhaps an admirable
stratagem that I proposed," Dora re­
plied. "But it is hard in this world to
be always admirable, unless we are
saints—which we are not."
"Speak for yourself, my dear, speak
for yourself."
"You have not told me how Ella Cor­
bin received you."
"She saw through my mummery in a
moment, and I never felt so small in
my life. Dora, 1 cannot understand my
stupid blindness hitherto. What a love­
ly woman she is!"
"Oh, Harry!" his Cousin exclaimed,
clapping her hands in delight, "I do be­
lieve you are in love with her."
"You seem greatly pleased—and per­
haps you are right."
"I am more than pleased! She is the
very one I picked out for you, and you
never appreciated it. Without being
perfect, she is lovely every way. I was
so afraid you would pass her by for
some little goose with straight nose and
round eyes."
"I am afraid-1 have lowered myself
in her estimation, she grew so cold and
distant."
"If she suspected your motive, she
would be mortified, of course."
"What can I do to recover her good
opinion?"
"That is the question, Harry."
"Can you make no suggestion?"
"This is not the heroic age. I might'
set the house on fire, or frighten her
horse, for you to show your gallantry,
but these are extreme measures."
"Do not jest, Dora. Your advice led
me into a scrape, now you should help
me out."
"Harry, Harry, will you blame me for
counsel you begged me to give you?
How like a man!"
"And how like a woman to say that.
But forgive me. cousin mine,' and coun­
sel me again. Shall I tell' her the exact
truth?"
"Never! The meekest woman would
resent it."
But fate helped him this time. He
broke his leg, and Dora went at once to
see him. "Harry, was this done pur­
posely?" she asked, in solemn tones.
"Do you thinlc me an idiot, child?" he
demanded.
"Well, I know that a broken leg will
do more than all the protestations in
the world. Do you
yeam'for
her pres­
ence?"
"Do flowers yearn for the sun?"
"Harry Wentworth poetical! You
poor boy, what a desperate condition
you are in. Shall I bring her here?"
"It would do more good than the
doctor's splinters."
"I will accomplish it then,"" she prom­
ised.
"Ella," she said, a few moments
later, as she entered her friend's room,
"l^arry has broken his leg. Will you
go with me to see him?"
"Certainly not," was the quick re­
joinder. "How can you ask it."
"Because he wants you, dear. Ho
loves you."
"He has never given me reason to
think so."
"Love comes very suddenly to some.
Go with me, and let him see that his
affection is returned- Think of him suf­
fering and miserable, and longing for—"
"It would not be proper, Dora."
"Not for his promised wife? Do not
look so startled, but yield to the dic­
tates of your tender woman's, heart, you
darling girl!"
And she conquered.
Thus she kept her promise. Lina and
Alice treated Harry with marked con­
tempt, but he bore it philosophically,
feeling sure that he had won the sweet­
est wife in the world. Hie secret be
tAveen the ¥\yo cousins, however, was

OF INTEREST TO WOMEN
ENTERTAINING READING
EVE'S DAUGHTERS.
Longer Tlian Men.
Mrs. Crisp is a Georgia woman, born
and bred with many of the ideas, man­
ners and tastes peculiar to the South
era lady of thirty years ago. Her
father, .Mr. Burton, was, before the
war,-a man of great wealth, but, ac­
cording to the Washington News, after
the conflict was over he had little be­
sides his' pride in still being a "South­
erner and a gentleman, sail." It was
at the close of th'e war that Mr. Crisp
appeared in Ellaville and speedily fell
captive to the charms of Miss Clara
Belle Burton, a blithesome, coquettish
maiden, with a wealth of brown hair
which, according to the fashion of the
time, she wore floating over her shoul­
ders. Now, young Clfarlie Crisp was
but the son of poor "player folk," and
Mr. Burton said flatly that his daughter
should not marry a poor man. Nat­
urally the young couple were discour­
aged, and his verdict might have had
some weight with Miss Clara Belle if
at this juncture Mr. Crisp had not been
taken seriously ill—and here is where
the romance proper begins. The doctor
who was called to attend him happened
Mrs. Crisp.
also to be a trusted friend of the Bur­
tons, and Miss Clara persuaded him to
send her regular bulletins of the pro­
gress of his .patient. In one of them he
betrayed some uneasiness as to the out­
come. Immediately this plucky young
woman insisted upon knowing whether
her lover was receiving the care and
attention he should, and furthermore
said that if he was in need of particu­
larly tender nursing she would at once
have the marriage ceremony performed
between them so that she herself might
rightfully take her place at his bedside.
This proved to be the turning point in
Mr. Crisp's illness, and it might almost
be said of his life. Hitherto the dis­
couragements incident to poverty had
possessed him, but thgn and there he
banished all helplessness and despair
of his future. He said to the doctor:
"Get me up from this bed. Hence­
forth I will be a man. My life shall
be consecrated to a woman with such
pluck as that. I will marry her in spite
of my poverty, and she shall never be
ashamed of me." He has kept his
word, and Mrs. Crisp has often said
that never for a moment has she re­
gretted that she married him. Mrs.
Crisp is a rare good housekeeper, and over.
wliat is gtrnng'n- still in these "emanci­
pated" daYs,~ she is very fond of the
work. In their Southern home Mrs.
Crisp's chief source of pride is a rose
garden, in the care o£~\yhicli she spends
much of her time. Her recreations are
mainly those of writing letters to ab­
sent members of the family and inti­
mate friends and reading the newspa­
pers. She is well posted on the affairs
of the day, though she is not at all
given to the discussion of them. Per­
haps her interest is stimulated by the
prominent position occupied by her hus­
band, for nothing pleases her so much
as to find mention of him or quotations
of his opinions. She has a scrap book
in which she pastes these clippings, and
in time it will become a precious heir­
loom.
Care of tlie Wardrobe.
It is an accepted fact among women,
founded upon good reason, that when
one's belongings are valuable and cost­
ly the services of a maid are not a lux­
ury, but a necessity, and really an
economy. Delicate fabrics need great
care in handling and preserving, and
fine boots, shoes, gloves and handker­
chiefs are not to be tossed about care­
lessly and still preserve their freshness.
But, without a maid and with a com­
paratively simple wardrobe, a meed of
care even will be found a great protec­
tion. The Pittsburg Dispatch says that
in putting away
(summer
vtUen
wash dresses
they must be rough dried, then folded
neatly and packed in a box or trunk by
themselves. It is an excellent idea to
go over each one and take the few
mending stitches that are sure to be
needed. Challies, crepons and summer
silks should be carefully shaken and
brushed, spots sponged, bows of ribbon
taken off and unmade if possible, or the
dust carefully wiped off with a bit of
silk dipped in weak ammonia water,
and packod away in separate boxes.
The same rule applies where laces trim
the dresses. If these are washable they
should be washed, .otherwise shaken
and wound around a bottle or wooden
roll. It is a good plan to let the dresses
hang wrong side out in the air, all of a
sunny morning—if you' live in a hotel
to hang in a hot room the same length
of time is a good substitute. Iiumplcd
niches, shields and bent bones should
be taken from waists, and a skilled
makl says the waist linings should be
brushed down every seam with cologne
and water. Feathers and flowers should
be taken from the hats and bonnets,
wrapped carefully and separately in
tissue paper, and consigned to boxes
where they will not be crushed. The
flowers should have each leaf pulled
out, and if breather! on before using
again will be found fresh as ever. Par­
asols ought to be rolled, but have a
loose slip cover put eji after they are
carefully wiped, in\ if gauze, flirted free
pf dust with a silk hdbdkercliief, and
stood in some safe place and occa­
sionally opened to alter the folds.

urated this season in the mode of din­
ner giving, and the .fashion of serving
dinners at small tables laid for eight
or ten has been almost universally
adopted in the grande monde of Paris,
sajjs the New York Sun. This arrange­
ment has been hitherto in use at ball
suppers, but now these late suppers are
rather out of date, and the festivities,
begin with, a dinner instead of ending
with a feast. The dinner is much the
same as for a ball supper, the chief dif­
ference being that at the suppers the
guests placed themselves where they
liked, while at the dinners the places
are assigned by the mistress of the
house. Tlie tables are all decorated
with different flowers, and each gentle­
man receives on his arrival an envelope
containing the name of the lady he is
to take in to dinner and the flower to
be found at the table intended for him.
Handsome dishes of old silver, or mod­
ern ones in imitation, baskets of sil­
vered wire, shells of china or simple
vases of glass the color of the flowers,
are used as receptacles for the flowers,
and pretty trays of delicate chinaL or
lace-like silver are filled with bon bons
and candied fruits. The menus are
made very small, in the shape of a
pockerbook, in pale shades of pink, blue
or green, ornamented with gilded ini­
tials or the crest of the family. White
damask linen is used for these grand
affairs, the millinery mode of table dec­
oration being reserved to country
houses and smaller feasts.
Patent Pillows.
An odd pillow, much liked by some
persons who find the ordinary pillow
clumsy and heating to the head, has
the case divided into two, three or five
rolls or sections, with an inch and a
half space in the case between each sec­
tion. When filled with down the pillow
looks like a number of rolls, each about
fifteen inches in circumference and
eighteen inches long. The admirers of
this pillow claim that the spaces be­
tween the rolls make the pillow cool,
and that it can be more conveniently
adjusted to the head and neck. A pil­
low lately patented has small springs in
the center and over them a thick layer
of cotton. As the cotton cannot be
shaken up like feathers, and is apt to
get in a solid mass, it does not seem as
desirable as a feather pillow. The rub­
ber air-pillow is perhaps better than
any other for those whose heads be­
come heated. One man has gained
many a night's sleep by using a rubber
hot-water bag for such a pillow, filled
not with hot but ice-cold water. The
idea was suggested by the ice-bags
which cool the heads of fevered pa­
tients.—New York Evening Post.
Standing up for His Rights.
"Are you the editor that takes in the
society items?" inquired the caller, an
undersized man, with a timid, appeal­
ing look on his face.
"Yes, sir," replied the young man at
the desk. "I can take in any kind of
items. What have you?"
"Why, it's this way," said the caller,
lowering his voice. "My wife gave a
swell party last night, and I'm willing
to pay to have this write-up of the
affair put in your paper."
"We don't charge anything for pub­
lishing society items." observed the
young man at the desk, taking the
proffered manuscript and looking it
"That's all right," was the reply.
"You don't understand. I wrote this
up myself, and I put in a line or two
that says, 'Mr. Halfstick assisted his
distinguished wife in receiving the
guests.' That's the way I want it to
go in, and I don't care if it costs $1 a
line. I want my friends to know, by
George, that I still belong to the fam­
ily!"—Chicago Tribune.
Beautiful China.
A full set of silver plate tised to be
considered -the height of luxury in the
way of table service, but in these days
of exquisite china, when it is an easy
matter to spend $1,000 for a dozen
porcelain plates, silver in this form is
relegated to an inferior place, and, like
the heavy eld four-post bedstead, be­
comes attractive only when it is an
heirloom. However, the collecting of
beautiful china is not entirely a modern
fashion. That extravagant lady, Cathe­
rine the Great of Russia, not content­
ed with her massive service of gold,
had made in France for the imperial
table several dozen plates painted by
distinguished artists of the time, for
which she paid about 4,000 rubles a
plate. French works of art were made
to the duty of dinner plates, upen which
was served plenty of /Tartar sauce.—

Dressing Bangs.
These, as made in our modem days,
are indeed luxurious. They combine a
traveling clock, many adjuncts to the
toilet, together with writing and work­
ing necessaries, mounted either in elec­
tro-plate, gold, silver or .aluminum,
which last has the great merit of being
exceedingly light. Many women pre­
fer leather cases to bags. These are
made on the principal of a man's suit
case, and all the necessary toilet imple­
ments are set in a moving tray, and
below there is space for nightdresses
and tea-gowns. It is a great conveni­
ence to have everything ready to lxaud
and to be able to slip them out to­
gether and put them on the dressing
table, and, moreover, to use the bag
without them. But one must be care­
ful not to choose a bag too heavy to
be earned. Weight often spoils the
entire utility and comfort of traveling
bags.—Philadelphia Ledger.
Won?en Live Longer Than Men.
Vhe well known fact that women live
lousier than men is illustrated as fol­
lows: The excess of females of all
ages over males of all ages in England
and Wrfles is only about 31-2 per cent
(in round figures, 15,000,000 minus 50,
000 to 14,000.000 plus 50,000). But
when we begin to compare women over
GO
with men over GO. the femaW ma­
jority becomes much greater, and when
we once pass eighty-five the old men
are
nowhere. The female nonogenar

"Did you hear the latest on C. A.
Keith of Salisbury?" asked Lenox Mor­
gan as he was cracking jokes with a
party of bosom friends at the Laclede,
says the St. Louis Republican.
"No what is it?" they asked simul­
taneously.
"I'll tell you if you promise not to
give it away.
"Mr. Keith has a sweetheart in this
city upon whose very smile he lingers,
and the words that fell from her lips
were treasured in his mind with the
same tenacity with which a miser
hoards his gold.
"Of late his dreams have been troub­
led with spectral phantoms in which
he sees hisidarling torn from his arms
by the other fellow, who gilded with
with his beautiful' burden to a safe re­
treat, where, unmolested, he can feast
his eyes upon the charming beauty.
"The young lady made an engage­
ment to visit friends in a suburban vil­
lage and asked her lover if he would
see her to the depot. This meant a
carriage ride at his expense. Certainly
he would with the greatest pleasure,
and, stepping into the nearest drug
store, he telephoned to a hackman to
send a carriage to street that even­
ing at 6:30 sharp. He also ascertained
that the rate charged was to be $1.50
for a one-way fare. He intended to dis­
miss the carriage at the depot.
"When the young man arrived at the
young lady's residence in the evening,
to his dismay two of his sweetheart's
lady friends were present, to see her off.
Of course this was not relished by
Keith, but he hoped to part company
with the crowd when the carriage was
announced. At the appointed time the
carriage appeared, and his girl insisted
that the young ladies should accompany
them to the depot They at first de­
clined, but afterward assented."
"To say that Keith was mad would
be using a mild term, because his mind
was fully made up to propose in true
romantic style as the steel-clad hoofs
of the mettlesome steeds rang merrily
in the gloaming. Not only this, but he
had just $1.50 in his pocket and there
was an extra fare to pay for the re­
turn trip. The party entered the car­
riage, but Keith was. in no mood for
cheerful conversation. He forgot his
love in cogitations of how he could
settle with the driver. Happy thought!
He could put up his watch for $1.50
until he reached the hotel'. The plan
worked perfectly but until the lady

that her invitation to those young
ladies prevented a proposal last Sun­
day evening, nor to what desperate
straits her lover had been pushed."

maton.
One of the most wonderful time­
keepers known to the horologist was
made in London about 100 years ago
and sent by the president of the East
India company as a gift to the emperor
of China. The case was made in th©
form of a chariot, in which was seatect
the figure of a woman. This figure
was of pure ivory and gold, and sat
with her right hand resting upon a
tiny clock fastened to the side of the
vehicle. A part of tlie wheels which!
kept track of the flight of time were
hidden in the body of a tiny bird,
which had seemingly just alighted upoa
the lady's finger. Above was-^i canopyj
so arranged as to conceal a Silver bell.
This bell was fitted with a miniature
hammer of the same metal, and, al­
though it appeared to have no connec­
tion with the clock, regularly struck th&
hours, and could be made to repeat by
touching a diamond button on the
lady's bodice. In the chariot at the
ivory lady's feet there was a golden
