A young Russian officer, it .ij'i-ars. wished to ue translerrerf to another regiment and took his request in person to one of the lights of the Russian general staff. That powerful officer shook his head and declared i he matter very difficult to arrang almost impossible. Then, his glance K-ll suddenly upon the shoes of the lieutenant. To the amazement of Lis visitor, the senior officer said that the i eutenant's shoes were not nearly good enough for an officer, and that he v.oi.ld sTongly advise him to buy v. -w shoes cf a shoemaker whose ad dress he gave. Tl.t a. telling his vis itor to return in eight days, he dis missed him. The latter was clever nough to realize that he could not re urn without the new shoes, so he butried to the shoemaker. On hearing who had seat him the shoemaker sai.i 'hat the I'.-uieimm could have iv sh-x s in five days for the sum of S2.".0. Much astonished, the officer went t; a comrade for advice. He was told to pay half of this sum at nee and the rest when his shoes were finished. This the officer did, and v. earing his new hoots he duly kept his appointment with the general staff officer and learned to his joy that till the "grave difficulties" in !l;e way of his transfer had been successfully re moved. DAY OF PLEASURE POSTPONED. Darky Had Forgotten Old Saying Abount Counting Chickens. A Richmond woman has in her em ploy a little darky, Miff Cole. One day Miff became confidential and told his mistress he was "goin to the ciini tery next Sunday." "But, Miff, that's a long walk. You know it is more than five miles." "Oh, missus, I ain't goin' to walk. J'se goin' to ride." "How is that, Miff?" "I'se goin' in a kerridge t' my uncle's funeral." All day Saturday Miff could talk of nothing but the approaching affair. Sunday his mistress excused him. and she expected that on Monday she would be regaled with a full account of the funeral. Rut Miff turned up , with a most melancholy face. In an swer to her inquiry he said: "I didn't go, missus. He ain't dead yit." Out cf Sight. A certain regiment was on the march to Gettysburg and the com panies were ordered to move with a few minutes' interval between each 1 and to keep each other in sight, the : band and drums leading. j The band soon got a long way ahead, J and on reaching a bend, halted for a . few minutes rest.

The Great Unsettled Question. "Which do you think affords greater pleasure, pursuit or possession?" 'I don't know." answered the man with a motor car. "Possession is a !,ne thing. But I have sometimes sus pected that the police get more fun out of my machine than I do." Tall styles are already under a! most full headway, and before lorn: the streets and avenues will be filled with the nor-qu:te-summer, nor-vet- fall costumes. The figure Matched shows one of the new fail tailor-made gowns. It -C .A ; is of plain eloth and is made extreme ly simple and it has the new tight sleeve. The coal has a somewhat full skirt and is cur away at the front The new collar that is shown with this gown is one of the feat tires of the costume. It is made extremely high and is finished by a ruff around the top. This style is quite the latest thing in Paris and is seen with most tailor-made gowns. SECRET OF DRESSING WELL. Wise Choice of Costumes Above Everything. Counts A well-known fashion writer in Paris says: A woman who dresses beautifully nice strongly impressed on my mind that to be always well dressed it is necessary to purchase each year only one new gown, garment or coat of the bt material and well made with due tegard to becomingness and beautv of hne, but of inconspicuous color and texture. Nothing is more foolish, she used to say, than for a woman of mod 'in means to attempt to be "in the fo.shion." The beauty of simplicity counts far higher. One year there should be perhaps a good evenin gr.wn. the next a carefully consid eted tailored costume, and in their turn an afternoon calling or reception gown or an evening or traveling cloak These are the important features of a wardrobe, and each one. if wisely ( hoscn. will keep well within the fashion for two years, the tailored cos turne till it is quite worn out.

Naturally all the world must not follow this advice: it is only for those ot moderate means, for dressmakers r.nis! live. The really good dress maker, however, avoids exaggeration. but is often forced into it by clients themselves, for some women think a gown must be weirdly or conspicuous lv decorated to be up-to-date. The ksson that repose in gowning is bet tor than extremes is not nearly learned. Women of good taste, if of n.oderate means, will leave the last word in dress to those who can afford to discard it inside a month. To Set Colors. With the proper treatment before the first washing, wearing apparel made of any wash material could keep "ts original color until worn to tat (ors Tne i(iea tlslt ti,e process of setting the color must be gone through with before a garment is worn is en tirelv erroneous, as even badlv-soiled garments may be put through the set ring process and then readily washed clean in the soapy water. Fold the garment to a small size and lay it in the bottom of si laundry crock or some o;her vessel which will not rust. For a large garment dissolve one pound :i salt in two quarts of water and pour scalding hot over the garment in the vessel. Loosen up the folds so that the salt solution may thoroughly pene trate and leave it in the water for at least one hour. Wring the garment and wash the same as usual. The same solution may be reheated and i.ed again for goods of the same tones. Boots and Shoes. A careful study of the French fancies show that fashions in shoes do not indicate any radical change. For general winter wear the mod erately high cut boot, not extremely high, will be much worn. Women are recognizing the need of outdoor winter boots, such as were originally designed lor skating. They have a good broad sole and low, fiat heels. Tlu'se, of course, ate only used for walking. For the house and ballroom light shades that match the gown, in both skin and satin, are cut very low. have high heels and are ornamented with buckles and embroidery.

BEGINNING TO "TELL ON HIM." More or Less Pathetic Complaint of Hard-Working Farmer. The owner of the farm had been en joying himself at the county fair while his hard-working wife stayed at home to see that the farm suffered no loss in his absence. "Well, Sarah," said the owner upon his return. "I'm about all tired out Is the cows in the barn?" "Yes. long since." replied his wife barely looking up from the task then in hand. "Is the bosses unharnessed an' fed?" "Yes." "Chickens locked up?" "Yes." "Wood chopped for mornin'?" "Yes." "Wagon-heel mended an" ready t start in th" mornin"?" "Yes."

He had angled for Angelina, and caught her. He had angled for fish also the livelong day. ami caught one phippid that is, a porgy. That night he went to see Angelina's father on the delicate question of matrimony. He was nervous, and could not bring himself to the momentous question, so he talked about the weather and fish ing. The old man asked, presently: "What luek?" "Only a pound porgy." replied the mttor. "My boy!" exclaimed the happy fa ther. "I know what vou have come ibout. Take her and be happy. No man nas ever contessed to such a ruth before. You are a piscatorial leorge Washington." That settled it. though, as a matter of fact, the porgy weighed only half pound. Bohemian Magazine.

Matos. who led the last unsuc cessful revolution against President Castro of Venezuela, is a great dandy. Even when in the field with his army it is said that he invariably wears white gloves. Once, previous to starting his revo lution, he was arrested on suspicion by Castro and lodged in the Caracas jail. At a gathering in the city a number of tender-hearted ladies were deploring the hardships which Matos, accustomed to refinement and luxurv. must undoubtedly be enduring. "Think of it!" remarked one. "I have been told that they make him ileep oi a hard wooden bench!" "And they say." put in another, "that he 15 made to wear handcuffs!" "And chains around his ankles!" vailed a third.

Peculiar Stite cf Mind of Man Who Makes People Laugh. Frank Uatj'eis. the well-known com edian, is said to have a most extraor diiKiiy lar of death. If he can p. ssibly back out from attending a tuarrai he invariably does so. In fact, it is said that he never went to (-ne in his life until Kirke La Sheile. his old-time friend and man ager, died, si short time ago. Then it was absolutely necessary for Daniels to go to the funeral. He did. But he arrived bsick at his home in Rye, N. Y., in a state of great agita tion, and promptly took to his bed. But as nothing seemed to be the matter with him, he gradually plucked up courage and decided to arise, as usual, the next day. His valet asked him whether he de sired to put on the clothes which he had worn the day before. "What?" exclaimed Daniels, horri fied. "Wear those things I had on at the funeral! Never! Throw them away burn them up! I never want to see them again!" And his previous agitation returned to such an extent that he almost de cided not to get up that day at all. The Will to Live. Dr. Mason, si physician of considera ble prominence and ability, suddenly developed a serious illness when far from home in a little town in Ore gon, says the Woman's Home Compan ion. He felt able to prescribe for himself, but knew that what he really needed wsis careful nursing. The widow of the late medical practitioner of the town was recommended to him, and he asked to see her. She was thin, angular and severe of aspect, and sit first glance he decided be needed more cheerful attendance. So he tried, as gracefully sis possible, to express his doubts as to the volun teer's ability sis a nurse. "But." protested the lady. "I nursed my father until he died; I nursed both my sister and brother until they died: I nursed my hus hsiud " "Yes. yes." interrupted the doctor, "but. you see. I want to live." Happiness. The young poet had just finished what he considered to ho a work of real inspiration, and. rising from his table, he hastened up stairs o where his little wife, a bride of six weeks, was sitting darning his socks.

The whole spirit of his beautiful poem breathed forth as he threaded his way from the beginning to the end of his theme, and when he had fin ished he looked at her. awaiting her verdict.

Two incidents recall the keenness and the thoroughness the great twin abilities, to see and to utilize of Ben jamin Franklin. One day he chanced to observe a lady in the possession of an imported whisk broom. With his usual interest and cartful conshh lation he examined it as a novelty. He discovered on the brush of the broom a seed, which he carefully .removed. Presently he planted it. and the growth from this seed was the first crop of broom corn in this country. Again, one day when Dr. Franklin was walking by Dock creek he saw stuck in the mud a wickerwork basket, which had sprouted. Carefully he fished out the bsiskr-t. and carefully took it apart. He gave cuttings to his friend. Mr. Chailes Norris. who plant ed the twigs in his garden, where they grew to great size. They turned out to be yellow willows, and. as Franklin had forest en. proved of great commer cial value. Rural Canniness. Once a denizen of the up-state re gions, where whiskers grow in plenty and umbrellas bulge at will, decided to visit New York. But he decided to visit the bewildering metropolis quite as a man of the world not to be taken in by the wicked men who. as he understood, made a business of de ceiving the guileless up stater. Hence he arrived at the Grand Cen tral looking very, very wise, and pro ceeded, first of all. to visit the collec tion of wax figures at the Eden Mu see. He was engaged in looking critically at one of the most lifelike groups on exhibition there, when a policeman suddenly plucked him by the sleeve. The np-stater turned. "You mustn't smoke in here." said the policeman, severely. A look of wisdom beyond the pow er of words to describe came over that up-stater's face. Continuing brazenly to smoke, he remarked: "Tut. tut. Go away. Don't you think I know that you're masse of wax?" The Road to Success. John G. Johnson.
