An American woman who had goae
to live In Shanghai was compelled,
booh after her arrival, to entertain
some important bimiuess associates of
her husband's. Her finest china, glass,
aud so forth had not vet arrived from
the State*. Nevertheless, she deter
mined to give a dinner and called In
her "Number one boy."
"Now, boy," she said impressively,
"I entertain three gentlemen at din-
ner to-morrow, very fine gentlemen.
Must be alee, everything."
Howlng and scraping, lie went off
to inform the other seven servants.
The next eveuing as she ushered her
friends Into the dining hall she gasped
in astonishment. Before her was a
table spread with the most exquisite
linen, cut glass, silver and delicate
china. Over it all hung a gorgeous
cut glass chandelier. Course after
course was served as if by magic.
The instant she could leave her
guests she sought her "Number one
"Boy, boy!" she exclaimed. "Where

The boy beamed with satisfaction.

Monday night and participate in
the organizition and become

Bojks and Novelties
Sags tor Brooms.
A string should be run in each and
tied round the handle of the broom.
Thus covered, the broom will be found
very useful in wiping down walls,
high wardrobes, and also polished
floors. The bags may be easily washed
out and dried before use.
This covering will be .found very
superior to the ordinary duster which
one sees occasionally tied over the
broom head. Linen is often used for
these covers, but is not equal to flan-
THE LETTER OF THE LAW.
Sheriff Had Provided Exactly What
Judge Called For.
The Hon. John Steel was a sheriff
in Missouri. A new county judge was
lected, and Steel, thinking to pay the
judge a delicate compliment, selected
for his first panel of Jurors every fat
man in the county; the judge weighed
learly 300 pounds, says the Saturday
The day was hot, and Steel, When
took the jurors out to dtaner, fed
hem so heartily that all went to slieep

Steel went out and rode the co nntry
that night. When the judge apptfared
next morning Steel had a panel of pue-
eyed men for him.
Crushing a Critic. ^
School superintendents, among their
many duties, are expected to report
on the personality of the teachers In
their district. It Is not always ea.iy
to get "a line" on that quality of a
teacher, so many are lenient In the
work. One of the superintendents,
however, is n'ever satisfied until he
has made the test for orderliness by
asking the teacher to open his or her
Or.e day he found one of his fair
subordinates with things in great con-
fusion. She was evidently violating
heaven's first law.

delinquent, "I don't believe you would
make a good housekeeper."

To Clean Glass.
Place pulverized pumice stone be-
tween the layers of a folded piece of
soft muslin and stitch around the I

panes with this dry cloth and they
will be clean and sparkle almost in-
stantly. Enough powder will remain
in the cloth to be used many times.

Had Confidence In Himsrtf.
It is recorded of the earl of Mane-
field that he once dismissed a servant,
but wrote for him a "character," ai
follows: "The bearer, John , has
served me for three years In the ca-
pacity of coachman. He Is an able
driver and a very sober man. I dis-
charged him because he cheated me."
a day or two later the man returned
to thank his old master for the help
he had afforded him in getting him a
new berth. How had the testimonial
helped him? The man explained that
his new master had observed that
ability to drive and sobriety were the
qualities he required In a coachman.
As for the cheating, his employer had
s:i'd: "I'm a Yorkshlreman, and I'll
be hanged if you cheat me."
