Michalovsky left her shortly before the dinner hour. "So thepolice told my cousin that, did they? I know better. The police do not tell such secrets. Alexis got it elsewhere. But where? He certainly cou'C not have got it from any of the duke's household. The colonel would not use it for any other purpose than the pretended one. But the duke's life is in danger every moment from revo lutionists', and If it is known that he is to dine with me tonight he may be assassinated either coming or going. I will send a messenger suggesting that he stay away." She wrote a note stating that his ex pected visit was known and begged him not to come. But he replied in person. "Ah, countess," he said gallantly, "do you suppose fear would cause me to forcsro the pleasure of dining with you ?" "Did nothing happen on the way?" "Nothln?." "But I fear for your return." "Baulsh it from your mind. I am here to enjoy a pleasant evening with you. Let us throw fear to the winds."

"At whose request do you ask me for this favor?" he said after promising the commission. "My cousin. Colonel Alexis Mlchalov Bky." , "Colonel Michalovsky V "Yes. Do you know him?" "Only as colonel of a regiment." At the moment a dish of exquisite cut glass was brought in on which was mellow fruit surmounted by a large orange. The dish was set on the table between the two, and the countess was taking the orange from the top of the pyramid when the serv ant said to her: "Colonel Michalovsky begs that be may speak to you a moment. It is about the appointment. He wishes to rhnnge his request" But the countess did not bear. On taking up the orange she noticed a small spot where It bad been plucked from the tree. 'She held the orange under ber nose and noticed a pecul iar odor. Then suddenly she saw a tiny flash such as might come from the fuse of a firecracker. There was beside ber a finger bowl that bad been placed on the table with the fruit The countess quick as a flash im mersed the orange in the water. White as a cloth, she told the duke to run for bis life. "Not while you sit still," be said. When the bomb was cot open by the police it was found to be an orange kia filled with nitroglycerin. The fuse bad burned within an eighth of an inch of the contents. Colonel Michalovsky tried to escape, but waa caught and sent to Siberia. Washington, Jan. 25.

Another way to insure an even lensrth is to place a yardstick un tlie floor, holding it close to the body and mark ing the point where it touches the bo.ly with chalk. This is done at intervals of a few inches all around; then from the chnik mark on the hips, the proper length is measured and the hem turned up.
