"I'll give you a cigar If you dure do It

"It's a go." ,
The daring young mnn stepped up
to the tent where the pretty, girt slept

How She May lie Hecognlseil.
We have, lu our lime, adverted, ro
ve tied, anil animadverted to the fact
that when a young lady put on her
full ulster and her lVrhy hat one can
not it'll wlictlt r to olfer a caramel to
her or tn beg a hunk of tobacco from
lilin. The girls and the boys have a
way of getting themselves up so much
alike thut we have until now been un
able to tell t'other fin which. How
profoundly we, at the present writing,
rejoice may be Imagined when we say
we have at last solved thi vexing
problem, mastered Ihi perplexity
And It Is simple, too, when you go at
it aright. All you lutve to do I lo
watch l Im person lias a plato-gias
show window. If it Is A until ho will
sidle along sort o' sheepishlv and look
tn see it anybody I watching him; then
if tho coast Is clear he will tnke a uillck
sly peep at himself ill the reflecting
niuuow niioi ivst iiusmuij- muiimHHijr
may be wntchlng him, he will look up
and down tho front of the building a
if all he wanted to know were whoso
store till might bo. If It ! a woman
she will looK squarely itito the window,
atoii. look at herself leistnelv. ealuilv,
turn clear around to see tfiat every
thing is nil right, give tin a liiteti and
that a yank, press it all down smooth
ly, ami sail on, conscious that she ha
not shown any of that "tty little van
ity that the man display when he
want to look Ittto a mirror aud dare
not have it known that be waul to.
A tnitu doesn't object to being alone
with a mirror, but when It ooiuo to
standing before one right out In pub
lic ami confessing that it is a pleasure
lo look at one's self It takes a woman
for that. Ami this is how you can tell

Ren. Franklin Is lo blame for tho
sordid ami partial view of success thut
prevails lu litis country, franklin,
though himself not a parsimonious
man, dinned mnxiiiisof parsimony into
tho cur of tho American people so per
sistently, and did it In such a forcible
way. that ho succeeded in ingriiimng
tho" thought of the American people
with an oniiiiontlv material philosophy.

1 A Good Plant Stand.
Several years ago I hud a plant table
made which has proved entirely satis
factory to myself and the plants, judg
ing by their looks. I havo never seen
ono like It, aud there Is no patent on
it, so any otto can ' "go and do like
wise." Jt Is a solid blnck-wnlimt initio
simply made, with turned legs, tlnlsh
oil with stout casters. Tito length,
width and helirht should bo determin
ed by tho size of your window, The
sides are oipt inches deep, there Is no
top; arouudtho bottom of tho Inside Is
a cleat on which rests slats, like those
of a bedstead, on these rest a .ino pan
unit jtisc ins tne litsiiio iiko a niiik, the
upper edge turned over a stout wire.
Tito advuiituiros of this stand over any
other tli ut I havo seen are these: The
plants stand on a level, so all share the
sun alike; tlie stand is easily tinned
around once a week, so the plants crow

alleged that the ceiitlcmmi In question

In the utile of liis house, ..-through the

once ot mind he rushed down stnlrs aud
seized a milk pitcher from Hie kitchen
table, rushed out to the cistern, threw
the milk out ot the pitcher, pumped
some water into it, and, rushed up
stairs only to find that his wife had
seized a lunro pitcher of water from
one of tlie ijed-rooms in tho upper
story ana extinguished tne incipient
conflugrntlon. As tliore were four large
ewers of water on the two upper stories,
the progress of mental reasoning which
induced the excited resilient to niuke
such a ferocious onslaught on the milk
pitcher would be extremely interesting
to trace, If Such a thing were possible.
He should have had the preseuoe of
mind possessed by another property
owner, who discovered that a spark
from a neighboring conflagration had
111 upon the slightly shmtiiig roof bt his
house, and hud set fire to the shingles.
All the buckets aud tubs and pitchers
hail gone for use in the big fire, aud
mere was no ono to senu over to onng
them back, Rut the ownor of. the
house, even In the moment ot peril,
kept cool-headed. He rushed to the
pond, which stood by the house, ' and
deliberately sat down In the water. To

the work of a moment, and then he
sat on" the fire In more senses than
one! He saved the house. Boston Ad
