"Why, what Is this?" exclaimed her aunt. She bent over the prostrate form and said: "Flossie, dear, toll aunty." The girl only cried the more, but at last wailed, "That man; that wicked, false man!" "Who do you mean?" asked the be wildered woman. "'T'om! See, the letter on the floor!" Mrs. Treadway picked up the letter, put on her glasses and began to read; at first she looked puzzled, then amused, and finally she laughed out right. ilsossie raised her head and gazed at her reproachfully with tear-stained eyes which looked like wet violets, and said: "Oh, Aunty, how can you laught? The false villain! To let a strange woman sit on his lap! And I loved him so!" "Why don't you finish the letter?" asked he' aunt, with a quizzical ex pression in her kindly eyes. 'hecause I won't!" cried Flossie, springing to her feet. "Never mention that man to tme again. Where are my hat and my jacket? I am going to ride with ar.

PIIILOSOPI1Y OF CROWDS ADVICE FROM AN EXPERT ON HOW TO GET ALONG.

Crowds furnish nourishing food for philosophy. It takes a philosopher to appreciate them to the full. Take a sup posititious case: Suppose that you are tightly wedged in a sharp-cornered mass of struggling humanit-y, a musician of the Wagnerian school playing the anvil chorus on your right ribs, an able-bod led pantomimist performing the )evil's Tattoo on your left ribs and a stren uous anatomist taking liberties with the small of your back. Unless you can view life from a broad aspect, you will revile fate. If you are a philosopher. however, you will congratulate your self that you are there and proceed to square the score against your fellow men by taking it out. of the man in front. If youl are ingenious you will even have a little balance left. to your credit, provided you go about it in the right way. In a crowd, the man in front is fair game. Those in the very front row alone are helpless and it is only right that they should pay the penalty of their sulprior position. It is not gi\ en to any class of men to have thinl;s all their own way. It has often been remarked that crowds are good nattred. They are. A crowd will break every cigar ill a man's pocket and laugh good-naturedly while doing it. A crowd will step merrily over ta select. collection of reluctant. fect with the happiest good nature. A (lOwd will tear Ia m1an's clotties. carry away his parcels. squeeze the la:;t gasp ofl breath out. of his body and Ilien black his eye, all withl the utmlost good nal tire.
