The finest,
most delicate things you have you needn't be
afraid to wash with Pearline. The fact that a
thing is delicate and easily torn is the very
reason why you should take
Pearline to it. Nothing else
can get it clean with so little
rubbing and wrenching.
If you observe carefully,
you'll notice that the women who
are the most particular about their
washing and their housekeeping
and their housework are the ones who
are the most enthusiastic about Pearline.
.LOOK! Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers will tell you, "this is ns
" "the same as" Pearline. IT'S FALSE?Pearline :
never peddled ; il your grocer sends you an imitation, be honest

The Waverley Bicycle for 1897 is the acme of
bicycle construction. New and expensive prin?
ciples of construction involved make the cost
of building enormous. Hence the price is $100.
The only bicycle with true bearings
Last year the Waverley was as good as any wheel in
the market?better than most. Because new machin?
ery was not needed for its continued construction, the
price of the improved 1896 model has been reduced to
$60?a saving of $25 to you. dialogue Free.

Iho Iconoclast Throw? n Big Stone at
I'.oaton'a Famous Personage.
Iconoclastic Boston bus decided'that
if tliero ever wbb a Mother Gooso with
poetical talents?which isn't likely?
kI.o was not tho Mother Gooso buried in
that city and whose gravo has for years
been haunted by sentimental, patriotic
and inoro or less literary visitors from
oil parts of the country. It seems that
tho respectable Mrs. Elizabeth Goose,
whom legend credits with tho composi?
tion of all thoso sprightly lyrics iu
which, for no very goccl reason, chil?
dren aro supposed to tako sncii delight,
had no moro right to a placo among
America's eminent women than Jack
tho Giant Killer has to bo included
among onr famous gcnernls. She lived
and she died, nnd that, except tho
names of her parents aud tho fuct that
sho hud somo children, is absolutely all
which is known about her.
Tho story that sho wrote, or nt least
collected, tho famous poems is a myth
invented by ono of the presumably good
lady's descendants. "Merc l'Oyo" was
fie in timo out of mind a character iu
French fairy tales. Tho namo first ap?
peared in English in 1729, wiieu the
proso "Contes de ma mere l'oye" were
translated as "Tales of Passed Times
by Mother ticcsc." This Look beenmo
tho property of John New bevy of Lon?
don, the famous publisher cf littlo
books for children, ami about 1705 ho
utilized tho trado namo by printing as
a companion book "Mother Goose's
Melodies." Tho latter was merely a
collection of old English nursery rhymes.
From England it came to America and
was reprinted by Isaiah Thomas of
Worcester, Mueh., about 1787, then by
Munroo& Francis of Boston about 1835,
and 'now by every one. The fiction
about Airs. Elizabeth Goose of Boston
was started by John Flint Eliot about
1800, utterly without pieiof or probabil?

XIic Enfclltili Municipal Service.
Compared with other professions in
England, the municipal service is on tho
whole fairly well paid. Salaries of town
clerks range from ?300 in towns of a
population of 30,000 to ?1,750 paid by
Manchester, which has a population of
500,000, while municipal engineers nro
paid all tho way up from ?200 in towns
of 20,000 to ?1,000 a year pnid by each
of tho municipalities of Manchester,
Liverpool und Newcastle.
For these salaries tho councils usually
demand all the timo of their servants.
A lawyer or an engineer may do hotter
aB n private practitioner, but in tho
municipal service ho is suro of his posi?
tion and Iiis pay, and it will bo his own
fault if ho has not so organized his offico
and trained assistants that he can bold
on to his position well on into an old
age. Advancing years may tell against
a man for appointment to a municipal
office, but old age is seldom mado the
excuso for getting riel of a town clerk or
a municipal engineer. Most of them dio
in harness, drawing full pay.
The subordinate clerkships under tho
municipalities aro not much better paid
than clerkships in law aud mercantile
offices. Tho reason why theso positions
nro prized is that in such a position a
man regards himself as placcel for lifo
nnd is consequently in tho enjoyment of
that feeling of settlement and that ab
seuco of worry as to the future which
nro so dear to middle class Englishmen.
Excellent men of their class hold theso
positions. Their abilities and their re?
spectability would bring them tho sumo
ealnries elsewhere, minus only tho fixity
of teuuro which attaches to all grades
of tho municipal service. These subor?
dinates, liko their superiors in the paid
municipal service, voto at all elections
liko other citizens. They never attempt
to conceal how they vote, but tho recur?
ring elections give rise to no plensnrnblo
expectations or disturbing apprehensions
of any kind on their part. They are nev?
er active in tho inunicipnl campaigns
aud would ns soon expect to encounter
a highwayman in tho. town as a collect?
or seeking contributions to n campaign
fund.?Harper's Weekly.

Ho it tho Colonel Was Relieved ot Pain by
a Cowboy.
Ouo morning the colonel rolled oat of
his blankets with tho jumping tooth?
ache, and, though ho exhausted nil tho
remedies in camp, nothing had any
effect. It was 40 miles to the nearest
town, with tho chances against finding
a dentist there, aud it was dually de?
cided to appeal to ouo of tho cowboys
on his station, fivo miles away. Ho
came over in rcspouso to a message,
nnd, after taking a look nt tho tooth,
which was a double ono on tho upper
jaw, tho cowboy said:
"Kurnel, I kin shoot that tooth out
as slick as grease if you don't mind tho
Bear it will leave on your cheeks."
"Shoot, it outl" shouted tho colonel.
"Why, man, you must bo crazy!"
"Waal, mebbe I kin pick in enough
powder to blow it out."
" Never 1"
"Might chuck it out with a picco of
iron and a stone," continued the cow?
* 'And you might go to Texas and be?
yond!" exclaimed tho suffcriug aud in?
dignant man.
"I'm only telling you how wo do it
ont hero, and if you don't want that
tooth out you'll hev to stand the pain."
Tho cowboy started for his station,
but after a gallop of a mile he returned
to beckon the rest of us asido and said:
''Ho seems to bo a purty squar* sort
' though n Icotlo tecchy, and I'm
e Mini. Is ho a good rider?"
ie shoot?"
very straight"
ion I think I kin euro that tooth
ai ."
He spent two minutes unfolding tho
plot and then went over to tho sufforor
aud said:
"Kurnel, I'vo cum back to say yon
aro a booby."
"What?" yelled tho colonel as ho
spraug up from his seat beforo tho
"A booby and a squaw, kurnel, and
likewise a durncd old liar."
Tho colonel jumped for him, but tho
cowboy dodged and run for his horse.
Wro had another ready saddled, with
two loaded revolvers iu the holsters,
and tho "booby" sprang into the saddlo
aud gave chase. After getting oxit on tho
prairie half a mile the cowboy began to
circle and shoot nnd yell, aud the colo?
nel followed him and shot away tho
whole 12 bullets without sending cue
within live feet of him. When tho
twelfth ono had been fired, the kind
hearted cowboy rode off at tho top of his
speed, aud tho colonel came into camp
to dismount aud say:
"Get me 100 cartridges and my own
horse, and I'll follow that man to the
end of the earth. "
"How's ' toothnohc, colonel?" was
"Ti Why, it's all gone, and
I'll b low's scalp if I have to
stay < summer."

The Turin- Bill.
Washington, May 18.?[Spccinl.]?Now
thnt Senator Brloo has left public life, with
small prospect of returning, Thomas Beat?
ty is looking for a job. Torn Beatty is one
of tho most interesting characters of Wash?
ington. He is unique. Ho has his special
Held of usefulness, and iu it he brooks no
rivalry. For years ho has been tho social
secretary of Mr. and Mrs. Brlce, and right
well has ho served them. Ho has man
nged all their affairs in this lino, ordered
tho dinners, negotiated with the musicians
and art ists, attended to tho florists' and
other decorations, selected tho wlnos, writ?
ten tho invitations, growled at tho dress?
makers, and, in short, has taken charge
of the complicated business of carrying on
an aristocratic social establishment. Mr.
Beatty is not only indispensable; ho is
perfection. Everything under his charge
is done to tho queen's tasto. Ho known
etiquette from tho first to tho last ohapter
of the book, and, what is a good deal bet?
ter, is a keen student of men and women,
especially women. His tact and diplomacy
have averted many collisions and sup?
pressed numerous unpleasant scenes in
certain drawing rooms.
A Strniicc l'arndox.
In his own person Sir. Beatty ts n
model, young und handsome, attired as
fashionably and perfectly as tho Prliico of
Wales himself, glib with small talk and
fruitful of compliments. Mr. Beatty is
the most charming, most useful and best
liked ladies' man In Washington. Tho
best of it Is he actually possesses plenty of
good sense. Ho recognizes that this is a
queer sort of profession which he has en?
tered upon, and being in it he intends to
make tho best of it, upon the theory that
acting well one's part is tho only thins
that brings.honor. Mr. Beatty is gallant
to probably a score of pretty women overy
day of his life, but such a thing as co?
quetry, llirtation. affaire or nonsense nover
enters his level head. It is all a nmttor of
business with shrewd Tom Beatty, There
has been some talk to tho effect that ho.
would be employed to tnko charge of the
social'affairs at the Whitu House, but Sec?
retary Porter says they aro able to get
along without Mr. Ueatty's assistance.
Cabinet unices.
Some one has taken tho trouble to look
through the records of tho century and
evolve the interesting fact that more than
one-third of nil the men appointed to cab?
inet positions in this government havo re?
signed their ofllccfl. This proportion is ex?
clusive of men who havo been transferred
from one department to another and of
those who retire with outgoing presidents.
All but one of tho presidents havo bad
their cabinets more or loss broken up by
deaths or resignations. Though it is cus?
tomary for all of the members of tho cnbl
net council to retiro when their chief's
term of office expires, there havo been ex?
ceptions even to this rule. In tho early
part of tho republic's history Gideon
Granger served as postmaster general 13
years continuously?that is, In four diff?
erent presidential terms. Tho largest num?
ber of resignations hits boon from tho oilico
of attorney goneral.
It Is hoped hero that one rosult iu tlie
constantly Increasing prominenco of tho
United States In diplomatic matters will
bo an improvement in the quality of tho
envoys sent to this capital by European
governments. Until recently Washington
bns been looked upon as a sort of Botany
Bay in tho diplomatic world. Tho theory
of European foreign olllcos has been that
Washington was at the foot of tho ladder,
and, as a rule, diplomatists who were pro?
moted from secretaries to envoys havo
been given their first post of responsibility
at the American capital. The result has
been that with n fow noteworthy excep?
tions the European ministers in Washing?
ton rank in ability and experience much
below the. envoys from South American
and oriental nations. At the present time
the ablest members of tho diplomatic
corps in this city aro from South America
and not from Europe.
lluward For Genius.
Undo Sain is n very lucky personngo in
Romo tilings. Ho is able to command tho
services of experts In various lines at mis?
erable salaries. A striking instancoof this
is found in the caso of David W. Taylor,
naval constructor. Mr. Taylor is conced?
ed to Im) the best naval architect in tho
world. He is so regarded not only In tho
United States, but in England. Franco and
^ermany. >io is every wnero looked up td?
us tbe highest authority and greatest ge?
nius in this lino of work. It is ho who
prepared tho designs for the now battle?
ships for wblob congress npproprlated tho
sum of 94,000,000 for each vessel. Tho
ultimate cost of theso ships, when fully
armed and ready for commission, will be
very nearly $6,000,000, and tho expecta?
tion of the government is that the new
craft will bo tho finest battleships In tho
world, comprising tho latest and most ap?
proved designs and features. And tho one
man whoso skill and ability are to bo di?
rectly responsible for the success of theso
great fighting machines gives his services
to tho government for tho paltry sum of
$3,200 a year. A number of the best naval
contractors whom our government has
turned out lmvo left tho public service and
gono to tho Crumps or othor shipbuilders
for $10,000 a year, and it 1b understood
that Mr. Taylor has a similar offer, which
he declines from motives of pride in his
work as designer of tho now battleships.
There is still a great deal of speculation
as to the dato of the passage of tho tariff
bill, debate upon that very wldo and im?
portant subject being about to start up in
tho senate. Perhnps the records of tho past
may help to form an estimate of tho time
which may bo required to perfect this bill.
The Diugloy bill was reported to tho houso
March IG. It will be signed by President
McKinley?when? Tho McKinley bill wus
reported to tho house April 10, 1890. But
it did not reach President Harrison until
Sept. SO. The Wilson bill was presented
to tho house Dec. 15?, 1893, but it did not
reach President Cleveland's hands till
Aug. 15, becoming a law Aug. 27 by tho
expiration of tho time limit. The McKin?
ley bill was live and a half months beforo
cougross, while tho Wilson 1)111 was under
legislative consideration for eight months.
If tho Dlugley bill goes through as quiokly
us tho McKinley bill did, it will become a
law Sept. 1. Probably it will do hotter
than that.

Luck In Old Shoes.
Tho Chinese vnluo a pair of old boots
which have been worn by an upright
mngistrato, aud tho custom of wishing a
friend a "happy foot" is still observed
all through Europe, Tho casual putting
on the left shoo on tho right foot, put?
ting it on uneven or crosswise, bursting
the latch or tie, lacing it wrong aud
losing a button aro all bad signs. A
Yorkshire man will spit iu bis right
shoo before putting it on, when goiug
out on important business, to bring luck,
nnd many an English girl has been
known to bang her boots outside of tho
window on St. Valentino's night for
love luck.
Professor Black tells us of a singular
superstition existing iu England, which
insists that if the youngest daughter of
a family marries first her sisters must
dance at tho wedding without shoes, so
as to insure husbands for themselves.
Old shoe throwing is done for many
purposes. Iu Ireland tho election of a
