tihell combs and coiffureoraaments are
adorned with peacocks fashioned from
gold and enaaiels.
Old fashioned cameos are utilised
for belt pins with artistic effects.
Cairngormsare returning to fashion
especially when surmounted by an en-

"The conversational versatility of
your American girls astonishes me"
said the Englishman who was ap-
proaching the close of his 'first
month in New York relates thVMail
and Express. "Not only do .f.find
that in society the young wo.-nen
have quickness of perception and
readiness of repartee but I have
found that in the downtown restau-
rants where girls aTe employed as
waitresses they are extremely handy
with their retorts."
"Been trying to jolly 'era a bit
eh?" said the college graduate who
. was finishing off in Uncle Jim's Wall
street office. '"' " t
"Not at all not at all!" replied the
Englishman hastily. "My observa-
tions are based on what I hear them
saying to other men. The girls are
quite bright y'know."
"What led you to think them other-
wise?" said the American citizen.
"I did not look for the quality of
glibness in girls of that class" said
the man from London. "In eating
places on the other side the wait-
resses never talk to you not even
after you have been going to the
restaurant every day for months.
Here in New York it is vastly differ-
ent. And they seem to know where
you are from too. .
"I went to my usual restaurant to-
day. There was a new .girl at my
table and the one who usually waits
on me was a sort of assistant head
waitress. She came over to the girl
at my table before I had a chance to
tell what I wanted and said:
" 'Bring the gent a rasher of bacon
two eggs underdone a toasted muf-
fin and tea. Is there anything else?'
and she looked at me. I said that
would be all right and remarked
that the weather was chn nreable
and what doyou think she rvvid?"
"Something equally bright. 1 sup-
pose" remarked the college man.
The Englishman eyed him a mo-
ment. "I wonder if she was pok-
ing fun at me?" he said. "Well she

lish weather but I hope you won't

"The way some cashier pay out
small bills in exchange for large must
make other men aa tired as it wearies
me" remarked an observing busines
man to another Waahingtonianaa they
watched the cashier of a fashionable
uptown cafe pull at and atrip the ones
and twos in exchange for a ten as
though he were pulling a piece of mo
lasses candy over a hook and hated to
'It does" acquiesced his friend who
happened to be a United States treas-
ury expert. "The way some cashiers
jerk snap and pull at bill as they pay
them out is utterly absurd. The old
adage about pinching a silver dollar
until the eagle ccreain pa lea before
the way the up-to-date flip cashier
jerks the long green ha handles.
"I will give you a factthatis not gen

lished and that is the weight a new
treasury single Bote and four notes
in a sheet will sustain without DreaK-
ing. Director Meredith furnished me
with the figures and they may be ac
cepted aa official end accurate.
"A single treasury note measures 3j
inches wide by 7 inches long and will
suspend 41 pound lengthwise and 91
pounds crosswise. Notes are printed
four to a sheet the latter measuring
8'i inches wide by 13 long. A sheet
will suspend 108 pounda lengthwise and
177 pounds crosswise.
"It will be observed that a single note
will sustain crosswise 13 pounds over
double the weight it sustains length
wise while in the case of the sheet the
crosswise sheet is short 39 pounds of
double the sustaining power of the
The cashier had interestedly listened
to the treasury expert's explanation of
the weight-sustaining and necessarily
resisting pow er of w ear and tear of our
paper money and then he said:
. "You see it is this w ay: Bills stick
together see and we cashiers have to
make up any shortage out of our own
pockets and that's one reason why we
snap and jerk the bills so hard so we
will not pay out two for one as might
be done. Again a $2 bill Is frequently
mistaken for a $5 and vice versa and
by counting out our money as if it were
drops of our life blood we are less
liable to pass out one for the other."
The tw-o gentlemen paid their ac-
count and agreed as they passed out
that the cashier's excuse was lame
and that it was a good thing for the
rest of the public who handle money
that the breaking strength of our
treasury notes is so high or there
would be nothing left of them after
they had passed through a dozen cash-
SOMETHING ABOUT HAWKS.
Taey Arc of Great Value o Farmers
fa DHrtroflng TVoxlona In
x aecla and Mice.
The hawks belong to a great bird
family known as Falconidoe which
also includes falcons eagles kites
etc. and which lias 350 branches or
species distributed all over the w orld.
Of these about I!5 species are found in
North America writes K. II. I'.aynes in
Woman's Home Companion. Some are
migratory while others remain in one
locality the whole year round. Kxcept
in the migratory seasons when certain
species may be tun Hying iu scattered
flocks which sometimes extend for
many miles hnk are solitary birds
as a rule flying singly or in pairs.
They become greatly attached to par-
ticular breeding grounds and return
yearafteryear to the same bit of wood-
land often Jo the same tree where
they will patch up the old nest which
has perhaps beenoccupied by squirrels
during the winter. They are more
over very constant in their affections
some species being known to mate for
life. The food of hawks consists in the
main of small mammals insects rep-
tiles and batrachians which they cap-
ture and hold with their powerful
claws and tear to pieces with their
hooked bills. As destroyers of mice
and noxious insects they are of great
value to the farmers and even the upe-
cies which occasionally carry off game
and poultry have a handsome balance
of good deeds tc their credit. Intelli-
gent men are tow beginning to recog-
nize the fact end with other thought
ful people are losing patience w ith the
thoughtless ones who still persist in
killirg these w h ired servants many of
which are savir.g for th ir murderers at
