fcako tho advice, nnd alio ,wont away
or a visit
One evening Mrp, Bniccr was chat
tins with Herbert at a ball. Mrs.
Bates was present, ami, passing- "tho
'couple on the arm of n cavalier, sho
gaxo Vincent a smile that displayed a
fcot of very white and regular tcctli.
"Oh, If I had snch teeth as Mrs.
Bates," said Mrs. Splccr, throwing up
tier hands dramatically, "I'd not usk
Tor another beauty."
'They are as whltv as her unblcru
febed soul!" exclaimed Vincent
"If I were a man and bad n ladylovo
.with such teeth, I would never rest till
I had ono cf them for a koepsakc. I'd
fwcar It. next my heart"
Vincent made no reply, but the next
:xlmo ho was left alone with Mrs. Bates
"lie entered Into raptures upon whnt ho
called "pearl crescents," meaning bcr
upper and under rows of teeth, asking
bet to give him one little tootn from an
unexposed place. ' Tho widow demur
red, epoko of tbe dreadful pain she
.would suffer, tho fact that the tooth
would never grow again in fact made
every excuse in reason and beyond rea
sonbut Herbert pleaded and whined
and threatened till nt last he secured a
promise that bo should have his heart's
desire. A few days later he called on
Mrs. Bates and received the tooth,
.wrapped in a bit of white, scented tis
sue paper. Tho widow showed him the
j-jpotleft vacant, whereupon he gath
ered her lu his arms.
Tjie next time Vincent met Mrs. Spl
eer, whllo he was leaning over to pick
I up her handkerchief, she caught sight
of n delicate gold chain which had be
come entangled in the collar button nt
the back of his neck. Sho knew he
was wearing the tooth.
Before the close of the social season
Mrs. Spleer gave a cotillon party nt
which Mr. Vincent, Mrs. Bates and
Miss Abbey were present. Mr. Vincent
,was somewhat troubled at the presence
of the two women who held the chief
place In ids heart; but, ns usual, the
.widow, by superior "push," carried the
evening and becurtd her admirer for a
partner. Miss Abbey, seeing him car
ried off, turned her face to tbe wall to
bido her vexation, then faced about
nnd accepted for n partner a meek look
lug young man who had asked her.
Mrs. Spleer made a list of the ilgures
In tho dance which she gave to tho
leader. This was ono of them: A lndy
would place an Ivory bit In the mouth
of nnotiier ludy and with u pair of
fancy reins drive her (o the gentleman
.with whom she was to dance the fig
ure. A number of ladles had been thus
'driven when the hostess appeared be
fore Mrs. Bates and, placing tho bit
between her teeth, drove her once
nrouud tho room, then stopped before
Mr. Herbert Vincent. JuHt as he waH
about to put his right arm about his
partner Mrs. Spleer gave a terrific Jerk
on tho reins, with a sawing motion,
ihat nearly pulled tho widow over
backward. There was a shriek, and a
doublo set of falEe tooth fell on tho
Mr. Vincent was a truo cnvaller. The
Jecth had scarcely touched tho floor.

two Immediate' bystundcrd had seen
iwhat had happened ho sailed nwuy
,w!th Mrs. Bates. , Alter' onco or twico
circling the' room he paused before the
doorway nnd, leading his partner Into
tho hall at 'tho foot of tho staircase,
handed her tho teeth, still Inclosed In
tho -handkerchief. Catching at them,
she turned and hurried nway to tho
ladles' robing room.
Herbert Vincent aud Mrs. Splcor,
.were not again on speaking terms that

,for her ungracious act, though tho
'lady went ubout with a self satisfied
air, as though Bhe had accomplished a

iwords had a hollow sound that did

the property owners. It Is known as
The plan described In detail Is as fol
lows, showing tbe effect It will produce
tnd ,tl advantage It will afford:
At street Intersections, when prac
ticable place, eight trees of large grow
ing sorts, two trees on each .corner,
rach tree, as nearly as may be, joa tho
treo line of one street nnd on the prop
erty line of the other BtreoL The tops
of thefco trees, properly trained, will
bo high above- all awnings and lights.
aa jn time will form a groined arch
over uotli streets. Tula clump will
form a dense shade where It will do
the greatest good and least harm.
As the trees grow, the lower limbs
may be removed until there is a clean
8hafc twenty feet high. The space un-
cicr the trees wJU be high, light and
airy and shady. Shotdd any branch
approach too near a building It nay bo
rcmovcdl One can hardly realize tho
beauty and utility of sucb an arrange-
ment without seeing It In hot days
tbe sijado will bo very acceptable to
those waiting for cars. It will be very
pleasant for friends and acquaintances
mooting on tho corners. Peoplo can
crofta the streets In the shade of this
canopy. These places, which lu hot
days arc like furnaces heating the air,
will bo changed Into cooling shade.
These clumps of sturdy trees sup
porting one another will form barriers
to high winds and protect slnglo trees
nnd property In general.
