Two Coasting Accidents. Uttle Jo

of the city is the victim of the first
strious coasting accident of the season
in the city. She was one of a great
crowd of young ptople who were en
joymg tne nue suae tfowu tne new
roadway which has been cut in the
hill from Fourth avenue south at Forty-
third street. There were so many
children and sleds that there was im
minent danger of collisions at any mo
ment. Josephine was the victim of one
of these, and she sustained a bac
break of her leg just above the ankle.
She is confined to her home, where
she was taken after the accident and
was attended by a physician. Paul
Ieonard. young son of Mr. and Mrs
W. W. leonard of 242G Sixth avenue.
met with a painful accident while
coasting on the Sixteenth street hill.
He reached Eighth avenue when his
sled swerved to one side and was
struck by a bob on which were several
boys. Paul was thrown against the
curb stone with a great deal of force
and was picked up by a young lady-
residing near the scene of the accident
and carried into her home where he
was given required attention. The in
juries which he sustained consisted of
a sprained ankle and a bad cut ou the

Shall u girl ask a youug mad to call,
or shall the youug man ask the girl if
he may call7 The correct answer Is.
Sometimes the one, sometimes the oth
er. If a girl is Introduced to a man by
a mutual acquaintance it is quite cor
rect for her to bid the acquaintance
bring his friend to call. It Is also prop
ht for the girl's mother to Invite the
man to come.
It certainly looks deferential, too, for
a young man to say to the young lady
he wishes to honor with friendly atten

agreeable and well mannered the girl
will answer that she would be happy
t j have him call. She would best put It
that we" would be glad to see him.
thus including her mother. It is only
respectful thus to recognize the mother
as the social bead of a family, and, be
sides, such recognition gives the girl
herself a dignity and standing.

Oa arriving at the young lady's home
the young man deposits his hat and
overcoat, if he wears one, upon tbe hall
rack so soon as he ascertains that the
young Lady is at home and can see him.

on If It Is a first call and a short one.
if theie Is no hall and he Is ushered at
once into the parlor he lays hat and
coat upon a chair or table.
When a young man makes a first call
on a girl her mother should invariably
eoir.e and meet him for a rew minutes
and give him welcome. She shDuld do
this on all occasions unless the visitor
has called so often as to have become
established in her home on a familiar
Ttie time to make an evening call va
ries according to the place. In a large
city where jeople dine late a call is
nronerlv made any time between 8 and
9. In "smaller towns 8 o'clock 1 the
regulation hour. In the country, where
sometimes the caller must travel a con
siderable distance to his home, half
past 7 Is not too early t arrive. In no
case should a first call last longer than
an hour. Ikdf an hour is the regula
tion length in the cities.
Some youths are grievous offenders
against good manners In respect to
making long and tiresome calls.
The duller and the less entertaining
they are, too. the more they are inclined
to prolong the seance. They sit and sit
and sit and stare at the wall or the
Suit Over Falling of Walls. Louis
Hanssen's Sons, hardware merchants,
have filed suit through their attorneys,
Ficke & Ficke, for $19,005 against the
German Trust company. They claim
that on Sept. 1, they were doing busi
ness at 213 and 215 West Second
street and had in their store at that
time a stock worth $40,000. Through
the damage to their stock and business
on account of the failure of the Ger
man Trust company to put the walls
of the adjoining Klug building In a safe
condition after their disastrous fire.
they feel themselves entitled to the
above named sum. The German Trust
company, as trustee for the Otto Klug
estate, will pay to the Richter estate
$750 in settlement of tbe damages sus
tained because of the collapse of the
walls of the Klug building. This be
came known through an order of tho
court issued by Judge Bollinger yes

floor, expecting the poor girl to "malie
talk" and amuse them. The girl beats
her brains and lashes up her memory
to say things that will interest the
sticker, inwardly praying that her
guardian angel will put it into his head
to take his leave, but the angel seems
unable to penetrate his obtuseness.
The girl may Ik excessively weary or
may have something she needs to do.
She cannot exactly tell him to go,
though she lets faint signs and hints
There is no more trying ordeal for a
lively girl than to be lored t; death
by a stupid man caller who stays for
ever. She fidgets in her chair, she pats
her toes, she yawns behind her hand,
but not a sign of all this does the heavy
and uninteresting caller see.
Not long ago one of these masculine
bores made an evening call on a pretty,
spirited girl who was already tired lo
death by something she had been work
ing at all day. She was polite and en
tertaining, and the man was plainly
pleased, so much so that he just sat
there till he sat out his welcome t.vice
over. At last the poor girl in despera
tion sprang to her feet and exclaimed:
"I can't stand this thing a minute
longer. I'm going to bed."
That man went. He was served
right. Ten o'clock or half past Is as
late as, aiiy ordinary evening call
should ever be prolonged.
A Man Should Raturn Hospitality.
Some dense wltted youths complain
that ail a girl wants of a man is that
l:o should take her to entertainments
and buy her Ice cream and chocolates.
Well, the girl is right in a general way.
If a man calls on her and imposes his
company on her in the evening and she
is at some trouble, expense even, to
make the time agreeable to him, it is
no more than fair that he should make
return in the only way a lone man can.

thinks his mere presence is sufficient
compensation to her for the time and
nerve rack he costs her.

Fought Over Union Matters. Pete
Jensen and John Pilgrim appeared be
fore Magistrate Finger yesterday fo;
disturbing the peace by fighting in P.
C. Miller's cigar store. Both paid
fines of $1 and costs. Jensen seems
to have been the aggressor, but car
ried a black eye, which bore damaging
testimony against Pilgrim. Jensen
said that Pilgrim called him a scab
because he didn't belong to the union.
but Pi'grhn denied this. Jensen insist
ed that they were discussing unionism
when the trouble arose. He admitted
being under the influence of liquor.
Prize Fighter in Trouble. Al Bok,
who says he comes from Chicago and
claimed he was a prize fighter, came to
Davenport to celebrate Christmas. He
proceeded to do his celebrating by
cleaning out the local bowery. How
ever, at fn of the places where he
called he met his match, even though
be did insist that he could lick any
two men in the city. "I ought to bo
fined $50 for associating with such
people," was the remark made by the
strong-armed man, which cost him
dearly, for when he asked how much
the fine was, he was told $100. In pref
erence to paying out this sum of mon
ey, he went to jail for 30 days.

SOME RICH COSTUMES.
Rub Clothes Yellow?
Boil them White?
If you want your white garments and your bed and table linen yellow,
there's na Detter way to make them so than by rubbing the dirt Into
them on a washboard with yellow soap. Whatever cleansing properties
that fclnd of soap has are due to chemical action. But the beautiful
whiteness and Immaculate cleanness every housewife desires for her
clothes can be obtained only by boiling boiling with Maple City Self
Washing Soap. It not only cleanses, but purifies, renovates, sweetens.
enables you to do away with the back-breaking, clothes-destroying scrubbing board, for the
soap does the work itself. Your part of the cleansing process is over when the clothes
are in the boiler. Positively no rubbing required simply rinse and bang out to dry. What
formerly took a whole day now requires but half and you can rest while the soap Is
doing the work. Maple City Soap will not harm the most
delicate fabric, neither will it
fade any colored garment. Goes
twice as far as ordinary
soap. Hard or soft water.

ANOTHER GERM DESTROYER.
Herpicide is Death to Dandruff Germs.
The germ burrows into the scalp,
throwing up the cuticle in thin scales,
called dandruff, or scurf, and digging
at the root of the hair, where It saps
the hair's vitality. First comes brittle
hair, then lustreless and dead-like hair,
and finally baldness. Nine-tenths of
the hair troubles are caused by dan
druff. Without dandruff, hair will grow
luxuriantly, as nature intended. Her
picide kills the dandruff germ, leaving
the hair -to grow unhampered, as it
does with the American red man. Sold

After all. It Is only the young who
can look pretty, for, iu matter what
expense lias been put upon the gowning
of an old woman, all we cau say of her
is that she looks stately or that her
garments were suierb. Put a simple
white frock upon a youug girl, and she
is adorable, and we all fall down and
worship her. It is ou account of her
youth aud her wholesome freshness
that we tind her so charming, and in
her we see with just a trifle of sadnesa
the reproduction of our own youth.
Aud it is for this reason also that w
counsel the young to wear only simple
things, dainty aud neat aud ethereal,
while they have still the charm and
frcsbnebs of youth about them and
leave the rich Bilks, velvets, sables,
jewels and old ioint laces to those who
have little else te compensate them for
their lost youth. And it is safe to say
that all those elderly women so splen
didly dressed and so bejeweled that we
see at the grand oera would give
every one of their precious gewgaws
for the youth which will never Return.
Just so is human nature always want
