Daysey's Exclusive Illness.
A sickness which attacked Daysey
Mayme last week is said by her physi-
cian to be muflitls. Muffllis is exhaus-
tion of the muscles in the arras and
shoulders, due to carrying a very
heavy muff. It is claimed by the fam-
ily that she has the only case in the
I town.—Atchison Globe.
To Keep Lemons.
1 Lemons may be kept a long time,
j even months, under glass. If you are
I not going to use them immediately
j lay them 011 a tlat surface and invert
1 a goblet over each one. After six
| months' imprisonment in this way
I tliey will be found to be fresh.—

The Philosopher of Folly.
"The man who throws money to the
birds," says the Philosopher of Folly,
"has a lot of nerve to pose as a lover
of dumb animals."
Our idea of a great financier Is a
man who worries more about the
price of call money thuii he does
about the price of pork chops.
Getting the Worst from Life.
Life is not worth living if we go
about our work, whatever it is, in a
spiritless, half-hearted, desponding
Court Dress of Laureate.
Tennyson's court dress, when he re
oetvod the iaureateship, did not cost
him much, for it was the same court,
dress worn by Wordsworth, who In
turn had it from the old poet Rogers,
and it is still In the Wordsworth fani
lly. It is a wonder how Tennyson and
Wordsworth got into it, for Rogers
was a little fel'ov , Tennvson had tin
passion for courts, and so be wont in
second-hand to save cost.
Truly the Age of Steel.
For every man, woman und child in
this country there Is a manufactured
each week more than twelve pounds
u" finished Iron and steel products.
Matrimonial Agent.—"Really, when
I see those two whom 1 am going to in-
troduce to each other, I don't know
to which I shall break it gently."
Utilizing Former Waste.
A new fertilizer is now being made
in Norway from the mortar from pur-
ifying the sugar liquid, which was
formerly difficult to dispose of.
Seems a Law of Nature.
Pauperism, destitution, ought to be-
come extinct: but the poor, the
wretched, the bereaved, the mutilated,
we shall always have.
A large majority of the good and re-
spectable women ill this world have
succeeded in being so without the as-
sistance of. chaperons.
Gives It Another Aspect.
Enthusiasm often dwindles consider-
ably when we try to convert It into
The Two Classes-
All the people are divided into two
parts—those who wait for the mid-
season bargain sales and those who
can afford not to.—Life.
A Great Truth.
"Lots of men smoke the cigars their
wives give thorn tor Christmas," says
the Philosopher of Folly, "and then
laugh at the men who wear rubbers."
