CROSSING THE 8TREET.

Did yon ever watch women croaa the 
street? There Is the sweet young thln{ 
who picks her way even though the 
■tone* be swept bright and clean. She 
always p o ss esses small feet and wears 
pretty shoes and smart gowsaand has 
an appealing look In her eye when she 
starts orer. The policemen always help 
her, though they know she nee d s no 
help and she knows they know it. But 
that makes no difference at all. The

Vlah. have their ases to humanity 
over and above serving as food material 
or ae unwilling caterers to the sport of 
the fisherman, says the New York 
flsa Although it may seem odd so to 
^eals of them, they often are as indis¬ 
pensable to a oonatry plane as a dog or 
eat. 

If that country place happens to be 
one t h a t is supplied with running wa¬ 
ter, and this Is used for ornament in 
ponds or town tains, two things are pret¬ 
ty sore to bottler the owner. 

One is the well-known 


hawse. History it fall of the tchiere- 
mfiti of hh people. Froissart men¬ 
tions their exploits in every other page; 
tlifiy were always taking this aide or 
tha other, for the king and against the 
king. When they took a side they 
oktjuit It; out they marched, they and 
thfilrs, in full' armor. Whichever side 


is the business young wefipan, vki 

plunges into the tray in awfnl absent- 
mindedness Sometimes she picks np 
her dress skirt, but she usually forgets 
all about It, andherahoes are not new, 
anyhow. The policemen know they 
ought to help her, but she Is always 
serosa before they get to her, and she 
gives them fearful shoeks because they 
know she is doomed to be run down 1 
«sme day and they only hope H will be 
on the next fellow's erdssiog. It all 
oomes of her having her mind occupied. 
A woman with an occupied mind is 
bound to npset things. 

And finally there is the poor little 
timid woman who is desthly afraid of 
truck horses and is shabbily dressed 
and liable to heart disease. She gets 
acros*. anyhow, no on«f knows Just how, 
because the first two varieties take up 
all the attention. 

And having watched the woman for 
some time, have you ever turned yodr 
attention to the men? If you have yon 
must have realized what a calculating 
animal man is 

He nevor runs serosa—that in, If he is 
s city man. 

He doesn't get fluntrated and excited 
and he accomplishes it by calculation. 

A quick glance up and down the 
street and he knows jnst how long the 
cable car will be in coming up—ditto in 
coming down, how soon the express 
wagon and the coupe will take to reach 
his crossing, and so he picks his way 
calmly over, almost saunters, in fact, 
and, perhaps, rescues one or two Hys¬ 
terical women en route. 

We can all do it in the same way if 
we will force our nervous systems under 
a certain controL 

Men, too, believe that no driver will 
run them down if he can help it 

Women, per contra, feel convinced 
that the aim in Ufa of every "grip- 
man” and ' ‘Jehu" ia to crush them If 


“The mod peculiar friendship I ever 
saw formed was one between a hawk 
and a rooster,” said a traveler recently. 
"One day, when living on a farm In 
western Pennsylvania, I shot and 
wounded a hawk. When I i-ckefl up 
the bird I found that Its wings were 
broken, but otherwise it wsa unin¬ 
jured. My sister begged that the cree- 
ture'sjlfe be spared, and the request 
was granted. Within a few days the 
hawk had become quite tame and 
would come to us for Its food when we 
called it The chickens were greatly 
frightened at Its presence and kept up 
considerable fuss. This soon wore .off 
and in a short time Its presence was 
taken as a matter of course. The bird 
was tied to a stake In the back yard 
and the fowls would go several times a 
day to look at him. One rooster, more 
courageous than the rest, concluded to 
get acquainted with the enemy. In some 
way they succeeded in oomtnunlcat- ' 
lng together and establishing, a bond 
of friendship. They were constantly 
together, and after the hawk’s wounds 
hod healed and he was liberated he 
would spend a portion of each day 
with his frieDd, the rooster, paying no 
attention to the other chickens. In 
some way he must have told the other 
hawks that our flock was under his 
especial care, for we were never 
troubled with them afterward, al¬ 
though before that we had lost a great 
many chickens” 

JAPANESE THEATRICALS. 

Customs Observed la Play Homss la the 
land of tke Mikado. 

Japanese plays usually last from 
morning till morning. The audience 
make preparations to attend the the¬ 
ater much as if they were going on a 
holiday trip from Saturday to Monday. 
They take baskets of eatables with 
them and have their ~r~l* with the 
same regularity at'tHa ptay aatHsy

The remedy for both these troubles

were everywhere. The portraits busts 
and statues of the house were in all the 
rooms; the piotnres ae presented scenes 
and episodes in the history of the 
house. The servants wore the ancient 
Uvery, the well-known livery of the 
house. The hotel became a museum of 
the house, and at dinners and on re¬ 
ception nights the duke himself was 
always present, grave, dignified and 
stately, with the look of one who had 
stepped out of a picture frame five 
hundred years old and had put on the 
clothes of the nineteenth century, bnt 
not its manners. When insi»m« the 
duchess was not at home he lived in 
his own chambers at the club affer his 
own fashion. An excellent Mfrgaln,

QUEEN VICTORIA GETS TIPS. 

Tbay Atm Called Pwqitolm. But Iks Oats 


A prominent Englishman who was 
discussing the food value of meat to 
workingmen lately, saye the 8t Louis 
Globe-Democrat, said: “Despite what 
our vegetarian friends say, meat la 
essential to the workingman. It makes 
muscle and preserves the energy. The 
Irishman of hia owa country la too 
poor to buy much meat, and it is notori¬ 
ous that he cannot do as much work as 
he does in other countries where he is 
enabled to live better. The trades 
anion commissioner of England has on 
record the statement of a manufacturer 
who has factories in Manchester, Eng¬ 
land, and Cork, Ireland, to the effect 
that, although he paid wages >0 per 
cent, lower in Cork than in his English 
factory, the ooet to him la exactly the 
same. This he attributes wholly to the 
difference In diet Several manufac¬ 
turers In this oountry hare observed a 
marked increase in the labor capacity 
of young Irishmen after a few weeks’ 
stay in this oountry, where meat U 
served three times s day at the board- 
lng-hcmseo, whereas in his own country 
the Irish laborer ia In lock to get meat 
onoe a day. This Is sn economic ques¬ 
tion in which there Is food for serious 
thought for men employing labor on a 
large scale, who think to save money 
by cutting down wages. It has been 
demonstrated that shortening the 
hours of labor Increases the average of 
work done, and by paying wages at 
which men can afford to sat plenty of 
meat the manufacturer will,I believe, be 
the ultimate beneficiary. Especially is 
this true of concerns like iron foundries 
and rolling mills, where the work is of 
sn extremely arduous character, de¬ 
manding a constant renewal of the 
wasted tissues.”

Queen Victoria gats more tips than 
any other functionary in Great Britain, 
and, what is more, she insists on get¬ 
ting them. Of course, they era not 
callod tips. They are called perquisites; 
but it is all the same. An ex-attache, 
writing In the New York Tribune, says 
that among the moat curious of them 
U her right to every whale or sturgeon 
captured on the coast of the United 
Kingdom and brought to land. Both 
of those perquisites date back to the 
days of the Norman kings, and it ap¬ 
pears that In the case of the whale the 
monsters were divided between the sov¬ 
ereign and his consort, the queen tak¬ 
ing the head in order that her ward¬ 
robe might be replenished with the 
whslebane needed for the stiffening of 
her royal garments. Another of the 
queen's baksheesh is a certain number 
of magnificent Cashmere shawls, which 
are dispatched to her every year from 
thp kingdom of Cashmere. They vary 
in value, aa a rule, from 'three hundred 
to twelve hundred dollars apiece, and 
the queen Is accustomed to present ons 
of them as a wedding present to every 
young girl at the aristocracy or in 
whose future she is in any way Inter¬ 
ested. Every tailor holding a patent 
of "Purveyor to Her Majesty,” If he 
conforms t« ancient tradition and 
usage, should present her witV a silver 
Another' class of 


Daughters. 

An Arab—meaning n tent-dweller, in 
an equine sense, the town-dweller is 
no Arab—loves first and above all hia 
horse. No one need to recite the oft- 
sung affection he will lavish upon him. 
Next he loves hi* firearm. This, poetical¬ 
ly speaking, ought to be a six-foot, gold- 
in-laid, muzzle-loading horror of a 
matchlock, which would kick any man 
but an Arab Aston his back at every shot; 
bnt actually, in Algeria or Tania, whan 
he lives near a city. It is more apt to be 
a modern English breech-loader. Yon 
must fly from the busy haunts of men 
to find the matchlock. Next to hia gun 
he loves his oldest son. Last cornea his 
wife—or one of hi* wives, perhat - 

Daughters don’t oount; I mean the 
Arab doesn’t take the trouble to oount 
them, unless In so far aa they minister 
to hia comfort, dietetic or otherwise. 
Until some neighbor comes along and 
proposes to marry, in other words, to 
make a still worse slave of one of them, 
she ia only a chattel—* soulless thing. 
And yet she is said to be a pretty, amia¬ 
ble, helpful being-mid to be, for no 
one by any hap ever chances to cast hia 
eyes on one worth ssaing This disre¬ 
gard women, be it said to their honor,

One of the deadliest serpents ia tha 
tropics is the fer-de-lance, of which 
there are at least bight varieties. 
These snakes are of precisely the 
color which will enable them to bide 
among the foliage or route of trees. 
Bometimee they are a Wight yel¬ 
low and can scarcely be distin¬ 
guished from the bunch of R*"—*f

will soon become ferocious and fight, 
kill and feed upon one another. Whan 
only six or aigkt remain, tarn them

A century or more ago the dipping

England and elsewhere- Gold plroce

statutory restrictions have rendered 
thie b usin es s comparatively unprofita¬

kite flying at tha height mentioned wil 1 
appear even to a conservative obeerrer 
to be nearly If not quite a half mile 
above the surface of thq earth, but a 
careful measurement pfs string and its 

angle will, quickly prore that it could 

not have bee'n more then a fourth of a 
mile above the ground. Ordinarily a 
kite will go no higher, even if more 
string be paid out; this Is because the 
wind depresses the cord and causes the 
kite to really recede whan it appears 
to rise. “It has been said that it is pos¬ 
sible to arrange several kites in sueh s 
manner that thqy will roach a higher 
altitude than it is poaslbla to attain 
with a single kite. In this manner
