For instance, we frequent-l ly hear of the "unluiky 13." It appears, however, that most , ttmiM are made in sets of six or aj : doen. and the ICth guest at a table makes It inconveuieat not only In the j iiimu r or Knives Hnd forks, dishes, etc., that are put up in sets of half or a lull dozen, but in the seating of guests ubout a table. 1 Some people think it is unlucky to breuk a mirror. As a general proposi tion it might be said that a person is unlucky when auvthu. of value is broken, tut in the early days mir rors were very expensive, and chil dren ia he household were admon ished to be careful of them with warn ing that if a person broke a mirror somebody in the family was likely to die. Some people think that planting potatoes in the liht or the dark of moon is a matter of superstition. When a potato is planted the tops I row upward and tbe roots grow downward, because that ls the nature cf the plant. We are hardly prepared . ,hA . . kkt oil., v. uj iuc iwi (luna UUWQttdTU, j lu tue rrieon that the tops grows upward is because they are encour-1 aged and attracted by the rays of ! the sun. A potato vine in a dark ! cellar will grow towards a crevice j of light. Therefore, if you plant your! potatoes about the time of the full moon you will have the light of the sun to attract and encourage their I growth in the day time and the light of the moon, which is the reflection of the sun, to attract their growth in the night time, so under the cir cumstances, yon hava a double pull on the growing potato. There is a superstition about start ing any big work on Friday. You can hardly get a good start before you have to lay off for Sunday. That's, all there is to that. And so It is with most of these weird things. They are simply based upon convenience or inconvenience under conditions that have been fol lowed without observance or know ing why. These, in the course of time, be came known as superstitious Instead of accepted scientific facts. IS Pl'TTEKMILK THE NATIONAL BEVERAGE? Is buttermilk to become the national beverage? One might believe so If he could tee the amount that is drunk daily during the hot season.

Perhaps the influence and example of Charles W. Fairbanks, late some thing or other connected with the I'nited States government, have been lout and forgotten. Perhaps the fact that Dr. Abbott says buttermilk is Teddy's strongest Indulgence has had i?s influence. Perhaps the theory of Metchn'.koff that lactic acid or sour milk bacteria could hand the ax to the old age -germ has been exploded. The fact remains that buttermilk Is a whole- some, palatable and satisfying hot weather drink. Fresh buttermilk with a nr.idicum of sweet cream blended with it must have been the drink of the gods, or It was if the gods knew about it.

(Special Correspondence of The Argus.) Washington, July 25. The big trusts have found out that nothing pays so well as "dissolu tion." As a result of the supreme court decree order ing the Standard Oil trust to dis solve, the value of that trust's stock went up in leaps and bounds. The court decree, with out charging the trust in any way in the matter of ad m 1 nistration, amounts practical ly to a government guarantee to vio late the laws. Af ter the decree was issued the monopo ly discovered that it stood In ud fur CLYDE H.

As a result, the other tnin's have begun to "dissolve." The bet-f trust has announced a "dissolution" plan, so that it, too, will conform to the su preme court's notion of what consti tutes a law-abiding trust.

A great deal of comment Is heard about a statement in one of Governor Wilson's books concerning his views on immigration. At the time Mr. Wil son wrote the book In question the trans-Atlantic steamship companies were artificially stimulating immigra tion to this country from southern Eur ope by holding out false promises to the prospective Immigrants. In huge advertisements these people were told that every immigrant would be given a farm on arrival here, and that well paying jobs awaited everybody. This had the effect of bringing over a lot of people who were unfitted to come, and who would have remained at home had they known the real truth. Mr. Wilson protested against this sort of thing, and now certain repub lican newspapers are trying to make It appear that he wants to keep all Im migrants out of this country. . Mr. Wilson ls in favor of immigra tion. He asks only the safe and rea sonable restrictions that have hereto fore prevailed, and is not In favor of putting up the bars against any man or woman in whom there lies possibili ties of good American citizenship.

Edgar Renwlek. an American, twen ty years old an age of semi-manhood, semi-boyhood was in Paris during lhe moeTt htlnl month of the year. 3: fring bj5 h on tb R"e de Rlvoll, he sauntered along under the arcades and turned down the Kue de i AT THE SOUND OP HIS VOICE THB WOMAN BTARTKD. the corner a portrait of a young girl had been set up, and lien wick stop ped to look at it The artist had achieved remarka ble success In portraying a beautiful living face. Moreover, he had trans ferred a veritable human' smile from a pair of human girlish Hps to can vas. In each cheek was a dimple, and the eyes were lighted by the same gladness that caused the smile. "Monsieur seems to be pleased with my picture," said a voice behind Ren-w-lck in broken English. "How did you know I am not French?" "I knew you were American by your appearance alone. I would like to sell you the picture. The price is 2.000 francs." "Is It the portrait of a real living person ?" "It is." "Very well; I will buy It of you if you will let me see the original." "Agreed." The same day the artist brought the picture to IJeuwick's hotel and received the uav for It. The next evenlnjr he called. The two took a cab and drove to the I.ntln tjuarter. where they mounted a pair of Htalrs and entered a ballroom filled with students, artists and young women of the second or third class. Couples were taking their places for a quadrille, and In one of the sets Renwlek saw the original of hi picture. Her face wore the same hap py smile that appeared on th canvas. I "Who ls she?" asked Renwlek. ! "A model." "Does she pose for" : "The altogether? No. She s'ts for ! shoulders, neck and bend. Artists use ; these for different figures In their pic- i tures. I am the only one that I know i of who has painted her Just as she is." When th quadrille was finished Renwlek was taken up to the pirl aud Introduced to her. Her name was I-stelle Leroux. He danced with her several times and each time fell more under the Influence of this exponent of youthful maiden lieauty. It was not this perfection of feature 1 alone that enthralled hlui. The features of a face are usually expressive of the soul within, and where there is empti ness within the beauty without ls like a wax figure In a shop window. E telle's soul was ns beautiful as her body and as Innocent as it was beau tiful. Renwlek nffer the ' ball was over went to his hotel in n dream. Proba bly at twenty a man Is at the summit of bl Impressibility., and he was a very Impressible fellow. The girl, who was a year his junior, saw his admiration and felt responsive. The next day the acquaintance was renew ed, and every day the two hearts grew nearer together till, like two grafted stems, they were one. The American rcn.r'ned In Paris till the autumn: tr:n his father, who had heard of his enthrallment by an art i ist's -model, ordered him home. Ren wlek would bare remained with his love but for the reaf.m tbnt she for- I bade him to sacrifice himself for her. i Besides, with no Income and not even the profession of nn srtlst there was no possible way for him to acquire an ndepeat?ent livelihood. The lovers parted bodily, not In spirit, and Ren- wick sailed for America. j Ten years passed, during which j many a high bred dame sought to catch the heir to a fortune, but be re- I fused to Ite caught. The smiling face i be had seen exposed to the public gaze on the corner of the Rue de la '. Paix and the Boulevard in Paris re- : mained with him.

At times he would look at the portrait and try to realize the change nnt must have come over her as well as himself. But It was Impossible, well Until he could see the changed orig inal the same young, smiling face was the face of the woman he loved. Ills father died when Renwlek was thirty. lie whs now Independent. But, though the blood In his veins was still that of a young man. it was not the lood of a grown boy. He still yearned for the love of his youth, but he did not know what that love now w.is. whether the woman in her growth had kept the same pace as himself either In reepect to physical or mental beau ty or whether he should find her In a sphere with which he would hare grown away from. lie had made an agreement with his father that he would not communicate with her. and except for the past she was a blank to him. Nevertheless, that past as It was was as real as it had ever been. Meanwhile he hnd passed the point I where he was ready to take for a Ufa partner a Parisian artist's model with out thoroughly realtatng the objections of such a step. At his father's death, instead of hastening across an -ocean with a view to doing that which a decade before he would have done had It seemed possible, be delayed. He dreaded to see a woman who had grown out of her youthful beauty. He feared that she bad grown fat or that she was skinny. Possibly those brows that at nineteen were like the arched stroke of a pencil might have grown thick and bushy. Then, too, would not her associates shock him? And, lastly, might she not have grown coarse? He delayed going to seek his lore for nearly a year after his father's death, and his coming into possession of a fortune In his own right. Then, after making an attempt to forget her. he ! suddenly came to a resolution to go to Paris, And her if she still lived and learn what effect she would have upon him. On the steamer going over 1m met a young lady of his own class. Miss Marion Rutlidge. Most of the girls whom be bad been on intimate terms with had shown so great a desire to catch him that they had repelled blm. Miss Rutlidge showed herself abovo this. Indeed, she did not show blm any preference over other men about her. When the voyage ended Ren wick felt a twinge at parting. He did not quite understand it, but it did not deter him from doing what he had gone abroad to do. He found Paris much changed. He made Inquiries of Efttelle and aft er some difficulty learned that she was still living and that she had not mar ried. He discovered an artist who knew her aud who told him that some ten years before Estelle had met an American to whom she had given her heart and that she had been faithful to that first love. She still retained a i shapeliness about her bust that en- abled her to earn an occasional fee for sitting ns a model, but nothing like the amounts she received formerly. Renwick. no longer united by the Impulses- ' boyhood, determined to get a view of her w illiout being seen him self, lie dare not cull upon her un disguised, realizing that she would be likely to recognize him, so he donned a Frencby costume and put on a full beard. Climbing to the rooms where she lived with her mother, au old wo man, he knocked at the door. Estelle opened It The vision of a decade crumbled Ilka a body that tins remained shut up for a ceutury on being exposed to the air. Mademoiselle was not ugly, she was not old. but she had become a common place woman of thirty. Her surround ings and her clothing were dingy, and Instead of the happy smile, of a decade before she looked wan and tired and disappointed. "Can you tell me." Kcnwlck asked. "1? Mine. Brissou lives iu this build ing?" At the sound of his voice the wo man started, looked Into his eyes for a moment, then, lowering her own, hald: "I do not think such a person lives here. At any rate, I have never heard of her." "Thnnlc yon. I am sorry to have troubled you." Renwlek went nwiiy, and the door cktxed softly behind blm. This watt a meeting- he had lonped for during tmi years.
