SHE HAS A NEW VALISE.
Why She Hong lit It and Why, Alao,
She Will Not Lend It.
A 1'ortlaiid woman tells thW sKiry,
whieh may have a moral:
Several years ago licr husband made
her a present of a travelkig bag made
of black Kusla leather, handsomely
mounted and strong and serviceable.
She had hail it only a few iluy4 when
the sister-in-law of her boarding j-.ilt-tress
lorrowed It to take with her to
the White mountains. It looked 6o
much nicer than her -own was her
upology. It had only boon returned
a few days when n friend who was
going to take a little Journey up
among the hills of Oxford county beg
ged ttie loan of it. and again it was
taken down from "the upper shelf."
Then another friend was to make a
lslt of a few weeks in Montreal.
Could she take it? She could and did.
Jlj this time the new look had van
ished, and still its owner had had no
occasion to carry it.
One evening a favorite cousin called.
He was captain of a brig which was
to sail for the coast of Africa the next
day, hut he himself was going on a
steamer via Kngland. Iid his cousin
have a valise she wouldn't need for
six months or so? UeliictanTly tl
traveling bag was produced, and that
was the last time the lady saw It for
two years, when it reached her by the
hand of a sailor from the brig. Hut It
was In such a battered and forlorn
condition that she consigned it to the

Speed is by no means tLe most
necessary thing In shorthand writing.
explained an experienced stenogra-
pber, '-but with some teachers it is
xaA the great consideration, often
at the expense of everything else. The
Dig thing in shorthand Is legibility,
for thert rt nmnv who can write
fast enough, but who are unable to
tell what it means after It Las grown
cold. I have been a stenographer, Ue-
pending entirely on it for my living,
for 25 years. .During that time I Lave.
of course, picked up some knowledge
on the subject. I have been the
Btenographer for two cabinet officers,
four assistant secretaries and three
or fotfr senators. Incidentally I have
worked for a year as the private 8c-rt-tary
of one of the big bank presl- J
dents In New York city.
All of this exrorience has proven
one thing very conclusively, and that
Is that ther. Is no necessity for any
stenographer who docs amanuensis
work tT write over 11M words a min
ute and In 09 cases out of 100 no ne
cessity to writ o?or 100 words a min
ute. Indeed, I know of at least '25
stenographers who are drawing the
largest kind of salaries as private sec
retaries who have assured me that
tiey have never been required to aver
age as much as '.) words. Under these
circumstances it seems strange that
some teachers of stenography will ex
cite pupils to write ISO to -H words
per minute and endeavor to make them
believe that such a railroad, speed is
a necessity. Such a practice does
actual injury, for It discourages many
from even learning a moderate speed.
"There have been instances where
it nv I..,,-., i.t. oi-v f,,r ct,..mr
raphers to Im; able to write over 200
and more words a minute, and there Is
a legend hanging aiout the senate
chamber that (Senegal Ilawley, for
10 or 12 minutes In a speech, once
spoke 225 words a minute. The aver
nge speed of senators In speeches does
not reach lln words and in' dictating
letters rarely reaches 100 words."
SOME SURE THINGS.
Beta to Avoided by Thone Who
firr Tried the Frnta.
F.ots to he avoided ly those who are
cocjisure they cm do all tilings are
Miose relating to Athletic feats. It
would seem that a good runner could
easily give a start of 5o yards in lot)
to a man who was doing the 50 yards
by kopping n one leg. Hut few run
ners, if any, can afford to give that
amount of start to any man who is
at all strong on his legs. I 'or the first
five yards or so they go at practically
the same pace, so that to run ;5 yards
while his opponent is hopping 45 he
has to go more than twice as fast, and
it is a weak man indeed who cannot
hop 50 yards In ten seconds.
An ordinary wooden match is easily
broken In the lingers, but. 'although
there are many who will hot they can
do It. none succeed in accomplishing
the task if the match is laid across the
nail of tin? miidle litiirer of cither hand
anil pressed upon by the first and third
finders of that hand, despite its seem
ing so easy at firt tdght.
No one can crush an egg placed
lengthwise Ahvt ween his clasped hands
that is. if the egg be sound and has
the ordinary shell of a hen's egg.
It Is safe to bet a man that he cannot
get out of a chair without bending
his. body forward or putting his feet
under it, If he Is sitting on it, not at
the edge of it.
Another equally certain wager is
that a man cannot stand at the side
of a room with lxith of his feet touch
ing t.ie' wainscoting lengthwise.
It is safe h bet any man, save one
who Is blind, that he cannot stand
for Ave minutes without moving if
he Is blindfolded..

that hot breads are nwholesome makes

to reach the renter of the dough, and there

result is the bread is burned on the outside
before the starch granules in the middle
