As a young man Alexander the Oreat
escaped death In a curious manner. A
great banquet was being held at Pella,
the capital of Macedonia, at which
were prrsc-nt the future conqueror of
the world and his father. Philip.
Ihiring the N*»st one of the guests
proposed a toast and prayer offensive
to Alexander, who buried a goblet at
him. King Philip, angry at this out
rage, started up. drew hts sword, and
rushed furiously upon hla son; but
he had drunk so deeply that before ho
reached htm ho fell prustrnte among
the terrified merry makers.
Sot a whit perturbed at this es-
tinordinary escape from death, Alex-
ander retorted: "Here Is a man pre-
paring to cro? font Europe Into
Asia, who yet can not step snrely from
ouo couch to nuother.”
Only the Runner-Up.
The best mail thought he'd take a
look around and bco that everything
was runnlug as a fastidious bride
would wish it. and up In the room
whore the presents were displayed,
alone anil unhappy-looking, he came
upon a youth, seemingly ready, like
the wedding guest of the English poet,
to “heat his breast." He was wander
tng about, looking at silver and cut
glusB without seeing them, and the
best man hardly knew how to ap-
- Er—have you kissed the bride?"
he asked, at last.
And the answer told far more than
Its two meager words mught have been

DRAPERY IN HOUSE
HOW MET RESULTS MAY M

UaaP Arrangamant Hr tha
Too amok drapery la apt to m*ha

Ocularly whew there la nut a large
space mod ihe room la not vary well
llahtad. and use must lie careful not ta
produce a cramped effect liy shutting
out the light. For n modelate-elsed
room with a folding dour which leads
Into another apartment and It nl
course iiermaneatly closed, a good nr
raugemewt can be made without using
toe heavy drapery. Instead of a pair
of portieres hung on a rod and falling
la heavy folds, take the material and
stretch it across Ihe doors, fastening
It even with the door, without the rod,
more ilka n panel effect.
Whan tha Material la Flaw.
If the material be plain and not bro-
cade or ta|iest ry It can bo draped
slightly or laid in folds like box plaits
and fastened In the center of the plait
with a stud or brass tack. This will
give the material a sufficient amount
of fullnems and do away with the atllt-
neea of stretching plain material tight-
ly over doors. If one happens to
postess a mirror in a gold frame or an
old colonial heirloom in wood, the af-
fect Is particularly good If the mirror
is hung against this background and
a divan placed beneath it with the
cushions of the soft shade which cor-
responds with the colorings of your
room, and the divan cover either
matching the drapery of the door or ol
a shade which is in harmony with it.
Arrangement far Osfk Hearn.
An effect of this hiud seen recently
In n rather dark room wan excellent,
but the background In this case was
rather more elaborate and consisted,
besides the flat piece of velvet over
the door, of a top piece. This piece,
which waa aeparate, was made of a
thin board of about six Inches In
depth, which waa faatened at the top
of the door and also covered with vel-
vet. with the edge trimmed with a
dull gold braid like a lambrequin,
while the folds of the curtain with
the brass atuds la the center of the
toids fell from Juat below this place.
The edge of the divan cover waa of
the same material and waa trimmed
with the same gold braid, and the
mirror waa a gilt one of n rococo de-
As the room was rather dark, the
cushions selected were Of the llgnter
shades of brocade la soft greens, yel-
’.own and old rose, and the result with
the mirror reflecting the other side of
the room aud the dark receding back
ground of the curtain was to make
It npitear much larger and more spa-
cious. and do away entirely with the
effect of a curtained donrr.ay.
Oriental Oraperlua Excellent.
Where one Is Ihe happy |H>saesaor of
some line tapestry or a hit of Oriental
embroidery they can bo used Instead
of the arrangement wc have men-
tioned. and, of course, are much more
beautiful. Hut even with tapestry. If
It Is not of the finest weavo and de-
sign. a good effect may he obtained
In this same way by putting the taiies-
try flat against the door and hanging
a mirror on ft. A divan under the
mirror or a deep aofa heaped with
cushions Is always attractive, aud very
good effects may be obtained In the
matter of Boft pillows and couch cov-
erings with the expenditure of com-
paratively little money In the way of
materials, upon the covering of either
sofa pillows or couch draperies, if the
proper combinations of color are se-
lected and nothing glaring or obtrusive

Tha curious effect of alow dally $■*-
aoulas and the gradual bulidlag in of
disease as a result, is shown in neap
brrs of cases where the eyes are af-
fected by coffee.
A case in point will illustrate:
A lady In Oswego, Mont., experi-
enced a slow but sure disease settling
upon her eye* in the form of tneeeaw
Ing weeklies* and shooting pains
with wavy, dancing lines of light, an
vivid that nothing elan could ba see*
for minutes at a time.
"Thla gradual failure of sight
alarmed me and I naturally began a
very earnest quest for the caaaa.
About this time I was told that cof-
fee poisoning sometimes took that
form, and while I didn't balleva tha*
coffee was the cause of my trouble, 1
concluded to quit It and nee.
"I took up Postum Food Coffee in
spite of the Jokes of Husband whose
experience with one cup at a neigh-
bor's was unsatisfactory. Well, I
made Postum strictly according to di-
rections, boiling It a little longer, be-
cause of our high altitude. The result
was charming. 1 have aow used Pow
turn In place of coffee for about i
months and my eyes are well, never
paining me or showing any weakness.
1 know to a certainty that the cause
of the trouble was coffee and the care
waa la quitting It and building up the
nervous system on Postum. for that
was absolutely the only change 1 made
in diet and I took no medicine.
