Mu.t Surrender the I'aftft.
One of the New York theater managers
was down at the seashore, and while wan
deriuK about the hotel piazza ran across a
friend, who touched him up for a pass. The
manager searched in his inside pocket and
then shook Lis ln.nl. ''I'd give you on -willingly,
but I didn't bring my cards. I
don't see how I can do it without t!iem.':
The deadhead looked blank. Suddenly the
manager spoke: 'I'll tell you what I cat;
do. Instead of usiiii; a card I'll jiK write
"Pass learer' on your shirt front, and that
will get you in all ritiht. Will that do?"
The man a-seiited, and the puss was writ
ten. That evening the deadhead showed
up at the theater, and the man at the irate
nodded when he looh'd at the shining
bosom. "All riuht. That's good." Tht
deadheari parsed through the crate and
started into t he theater, lie. had oidy taken
a few step-, when the gatekeeper called him
hack. The man looked surprised. "What's
the matter now? Isn't it ull riht?" The
gatekeeper nodded. "Yes, hut you must

"When Women Turn.
How is it that women who are sweet and
gentle naturally resort to Uie tcreiite't ex
tremes when cnee they turn from the pc.h
Of rectitude and become lieiuls incarnate?
They need not ue:es.-ii iiy murder or t-teal
or reel about in drunken frenzy, but when
once they statt to talk aliout some oae for
whom they have taken u dislike there
seems to lie no limit to tin: venom of their
tongue. Men would have it out in one
round (itherwit.ii fisticuffs or hard, sharp
word, and the matter would drop titers,
but women keep up the feud and seem to
take pleasure in the fire which their words
kindle. For lenient and just judgment
commend a woman to a man's mercy, but
if desirous of having her literally torn to
pieces by the lash and scourge cf merciless
criticism turn her over to her feminine

The Word "Brew."
If. as we are told, it is incorrect to speak
of a lady's "dress" meaning her skirt aad
waist only, if her "dress" includes all the
garments worn, even shoes and stockings,
why of course the same rule must apply to
a child's clothing. And yet to sjieuk of a
little boy in a "gown" would call to mind
a masquerade in episcopal or maternal gar

Mrs. Tattle I wouldn't breathe it to an

came home the other evening in a terrible
condition. Mrs. Grimes pretends that he
was only sick, but I know better than that.
Men don't go i way in the best of health in
the morning and come home sick at night
unless there's t reason for it.
Mrs. Tittle Of course not. Did he strike
her? You cou dn't have blamed him much
if he did. she is such a disagreeable person,
Mrs. Tattle- I can't say that he did, but
he might, you know. At any rate she was
seen crying wten she sent for the doctor.
Mrs. Tittle Then you may depend. Send
for the doctor, did she? Just to blind
people's eyes! What an artful thing she is!

Mrs. Ta; tic The doctor says he wasn't.

Speech and the Tower of Work.
Any one who observes the movements of
his tongue in speaking will find that there
occur no cases in which the adjustments
must have an exactness corresponding to
the extreme pov er of discrimination which
the tip possesses. For speech this endow
ment is useless Even were it useful it
could not be shown that it has been devel
oped by survival of the fittest, for though
perfect articulation is useful yet imperfect
articulation has rarely such an effect as to
impede a man in the maintenance of his
life. If he is a good workman, a German's
interchanges of b's and p's do not disad
A Frenchman who in place of the sound
th always makes the sound of z succeeds
as a teacher of music and dancing no less
than if he achieved the English pronunciat
tion. Xay, even such an imperfection of
speech as that which arises from cleft pal
ate does not prevent a man from getting
on if he is eapab e. True, It may go against
him as a candidate for parliament or as an
"orator" of the unemployed. iut iu the
struggle for life he is not hindered by the
effect to the i-xtc at of being less able than
others to maintain himself and his off

Co-operative Copy Heading.
Folks who are ambitious of writing for
the magazines and are not discouraged
when a manuscript has been rejected two
or three times will learn with pain of acon
fession made by a young man employed as
copy reader on a popular magazine.

He insisted that his mark was placed

copy reading must strike terror to

As an instance or" the cunning with which
female inebriates gratify their appetite for
liquor the following story is related: Some
women in a retreat, asked for curling tongs
a very natural re quest. Next they want

the irons, and finally they wheedled hot
water, sugar and lemon juice out of one of
the maids. Out of these liquids they con

In a room of the house of Dr. Xansen, the
explorer, is an enormous number of let
ters tied up with blue ribbon. "Guess what
these are," he said to a representative of
Temple Bar. The representative could Jltt
guess. Every shape and size and thickness
of letter appeared to be there. "Well." said
the doctor, "these are the applications from
all parts of the world and written in al
most every language to accompany the
north pole exeditioi. There are over a
thousand of them. Of course I don't au
swer them. I couldn't. But I do read
them, and their good wishes ere very en

An extraordinary Swallowing Feat.
A German contemporary states that a
very peculiar patient was recently under
treatment at the Augsburg State hospital.
A man, aged 40, had set himself the task
of swallowing some 2".0 fruit stones. Hav
ing finished this extraordinary meal, he ex
perienced excruciating pain. While under
treatment on the first day in the hospital
the medical men succeeded in removing 200
hazel nut stones. The man had taken all
this trouble to place Lis life in jeopardy for
a wager of $1.
The riame of the Prince.
The plume of the Prince of Wales worn
on state occasions is said to be worth l0,

are pulled from the tail of the feriwah, one
of the rarest and most Vautiful birds of
India. Great expense and trouble are ne
cessary to capture the bird, which is found
only in the w ildost jungles. The feathers
are taken from the live cock.
