It included books and book-bindings, paintings, photographs, ewing. embroidery, and all kinds of fancy work, and many things good to eat, such as Jelly, cake and candy. The design of It all was to disprove the silly charge that tbe higher edu cation unfits women for "practical work." for housewifery, or even for the manufacture of dainty and orna mental trifies. Of course the plan was Justified by results. Tbe exhibition was a complete success, fio Is the college woman, as a rule.

The desire for mental improvement is no: confined to post graduate students: It is taking posses sion of those who are c-alieii -the com mon people" bcaus there are so many of them. It is notably active among men and women whose eariy oppor tunities were narrow, whose school room life was cut short, and whose daily toll is exacting as a means of livelihood. The demand for shorter work bonr Is more urzent because multitudes are hunrry for something better than daily bread. I'niversitv ex tension work and other popular lev tures come to meet this want: the schol arship of the land thus tends to diffuse itself and to make learning common property.

An antnniar ian traces the present mania for high seats to the fact that at the old French courts sets of handsome furniture wen ranged along the waiis for effect, but never occupied. The chairs and sofas actually used were much lower. Fur niture makers of to-day copy the more showy pieces, aud further enhance their inutility by spring cushions. The dictum of a famous cabinet maker Is that in choosing chairs the knee of a person should come clear above the seat he Intends to occupy.

She likes noth ing else so much as to dissert on tbe d vim st ;es of the Pharaohs, to explain to weary, wondering minds tbe wor ship of Isis and Os:r:s. the reasons why tbe cat was a sacred animal, and to describe the ciories of the Egyptian priesthood. She has so many facts at her tongue's end on this subject that she is a sort of social leper, and people walk blocks rather than meet her where there can be tbe sligbest chance of her breaking loose. Memory is an essential that can be cultivated. There is no acceptable apol ogy possible for a poor memory, and it Is one thing a public will not forgive. A great deal of time Is not required to cultivate memory, since, when on a train. In the street, or anywhere eise.

The farmers who marketed grain at Solomon, Kan., organized a co-oera-tive snipping association, with a cap ital stock of Si.oM.'. divided into shares of SlZ.TiU each. No member could own more than sixteen shares and the ma jority held only one share each. No stockholder was allowed more than one vote in meetings of the association, no matter how many shares he held. This was to prevent any individual or cor poration from securiug a controlling in terest In the stock of the association and running it contrary to Its original purposes. An experienced grain buyer was em ployed on a salary as manaser of the business, an elevator was leased and on June lo. at the beginning of the bar vest of lLs.d. the elevator was oeued for business. Cnder the by-laws of the association every member is required to sell his wheat to the farmers" association, but a provision is inserted whereby he may dispose of It outside of the association by paying into the as-sociation treasury a rebate of 1 cent a bushel on all so sold This provision is regarded as the bulwark of tbe association and pre vents the syndicate from forcing It out of business. Within two months after the associa tion had opened its elevator it had hnn- I died over Kj.t :v bushels of wheat. ; paying its members from T to & cents below the Kansas City price, although ! the normal price was lo cents below, while the syndic-ate price was 10 cents below a clear gain to the farmers of I from .' to 7 cents a bushel. As a result rhe synd.cate received very little grain j and kept its elevators running at a loss. J Soon after the farmers' elevator open ; ed one of the syndicates ordered the price advanced to a point that would make tbe farmers dissatisfied with what they were receiving at their own . elevator and tempt them to bring their grain to the syndicate, thus keeping the I farmers' elevator from getting any 'grain, which, uuder ordinary circuui ! stances, would force It out of business. I The syndicates had been paying 4jj cents a bushel, but this one syndicate advanced the price to 55 cents, while tbe farmers' elevator was paying 02 cents Instead of attempting to meet this advance the manager of the farmer's elevator simply weighed the wheat for tbe farmers as fast as they brought It in and then sent It to the syndicate ele vator to be sold for S5 cents a bushel. Tbe farmer then returned to his own elevator and paid in 1 cent a bushel of what he had received, thereby netting 54 cents, considerably more than be would have received had It not been for the competition canned by tbe farm ers' elevator. Tbe 1 cent a bushel received from ; ZV ource Dot or.:y pail tbe err'--":'-'' proi: les:de so that tL" s add.tion to doing bu n.s ::d-.-- e. in .-:: it a 1 . actually pai i the fs:"-' o. tuJ a i'toit to t.e ve i:.st:tut:.'a it was eii leavor.r.g to destroy.

THE LUNCHEON EXPANDED. The Beaolta Were Diaaatrona to the Uaraadinx Bear. Tbe men from Butte. Montana, who went to Red Hock Lake in quest of ducks and g-ee were tird when they got there, says the Standard. They pi'ched their tents, piled their provis ions, not even stopping to put them under ix ver. and went to bed. One of tbe sportsmen. Davis, siept alone in tbe tent nearest the provisions. A few hours later Iavis was awak ened by a rasping and grating sound at bis feet. He raised bis head from tbe blanket and looked out through the opening of tbe tent. C'iear'.y outlined against tbe low-banging moon he saw a huge black bear busily engaged in sampling tbe provisions. The weapons were in the other tecs. There was nothing to do but wait for the bear to leave. Nor was I'avis at aii anxious to attract the bear's atten tion. (n th- contrary, he lay very still and held bis breath until the beast, witb a satisfied grunt, am tiled off in tbe direction of the lake. Bright and eariy the next moming. just before dawn, in fact. Mr. Iiavis took his gun and started on tbe trail of the bear. As be Ueared tbe bike h" saw something just ahead of bim a dark object, which in the dim light seemed to move. Cau-ious'.y and with some trepidation tiie hunter sack to bis knees to get a better sight on the strange object. A moan of anguish was wafted to tbe ears of the man with the gun. and there followed a moineut of painful suspense. Then a ray of light revealed an ani mal lying up n its back, its feet in tb air wiggling like the feelers of a bug that has beea upset. It was a bear, a big black tear. ap parently in distress. It writhed in evident agony when it caught sight of its pursuer, and its struggles were piti ful to behold. Not caring to take any chances. Mr. Iiavis despatched tbe crea'ure with a bullet. The report awakened tbe other men in camp, and before the smoke bad cleared away a dozen companions were on the scene. Developments followed. It was found upon inspection of the provis ions that had been atacked in the night that the bear had eaten a ten pound package of dried apples. It was further discovered that the bear had drunk water. How much he drank will never be known, but it was enough to agitate the dried apples. DID THE TIGERS KNOW? Faith in Trainer Departed When Thej bw Uim llrnuk. A really remarkable story of aaima. perception has been contributed to Frank Leslie's Monthly by Frank Bos tock. who may be considered an au thority on wild animals in captivity. I once had a trainer. Mr. Bostock says, an old Irishman who bad served in a British regiment in India, and who knew the ways of tigers iu every de tail. He taught three of them to do more work in the arena than I have ever seen done by any other tigers. 1 have seen him sitting down between two of them at rest times during re hearsals and examining their claws to see if any of them were sore or split. Any one who has ever tried that with even a house cat knows that it strikes the feline n iture as an unwarrantable familiarity; but they never did more than show their teetb and whine, and that half in playfulness. One day rhe old fellow got very drunk, tbe first time in his life, to my knowledge. Before he was noticed on his return to the cage be had gone Iu with his tigers and fallen in a heap on the Hour. The other keepers made several at tempts to take bim out of the cage, but it was at once apparent that to do so meant a bitter and bloody fight with the tia-ors. They guarded bim all night iu bis drunken slumler. But the next time be put them to Work thev balked, and he could neither persuade Qor drive them. The) bad ceased to trust bim. or something of that sort, and bis useful ness with them was at an end forever. That was indeed "Judgment fled to brutish beasts." Troubles Ahead for Her.
