An enterprising washing machfru

success in Whitneyville, had his ardoi
sadly dampened the other . day. -; II
called at a house in town, and, the mia
tress being absent, he persuaded hei
eon to let him show up the merits o!

were no dirty clothes in the house, con
s equently . the ' agent persuaded th
young man to change his shirt and giv
him the garment on which to exercise
the cleansing power of his new inven
tion. He inserted the shirt in the
washer and placed it on the stove madt
glowing hot with dry edgings. As h
alternated his labors in filling the stove
and revolving his machine, the lady oi
the house made her appearance. She
marched straight to the oven door and
flung it wide open. The smoke from
mined pot of beans fulled the room tc
suffocation. The agent was foroed tc
make an ignominious retreat. Wher

An Excellent Combination.
The pleasant method and beneficial
.effects of the well known remedy,
8yrup of Figs, manufactured by the
California Fis Syrup Co., illustrate
the value of obtaining the liquid laxa
tive principles of plants known to be
medicinally laxative and presenting
them in the form most refreshing-to the
taste and acceptable to the system. It
is the one perfect strengthening laxa
tive, cleansing the system effectually,
' dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
gently yet promptly and enabling one
to overcome habitual constipation per
manently. Its perfect freedom from
' every objectionable quality and sub
stance, and its acting on the kidneys,
liver and bowels, without weakening
or irritating them, make it the ideal
laxative. . ;
v In the process of manufacturing figs
are used, as they are pleasant to the
taste, but the medicinal qualities of the
remedy are obtained from senna and
other aromatic plants, by a method
known to the California Fig Syrup
Co, only. In order to get its beneficial
effects and to avoid imitations, please
remember the full name of the Company
printed on the front of every package.

"Then you're a man of unbound
ed courage," retorted his friend, Ulys
ses Crinklethorpe. "For may I ven
ture to be frank?" ,. -'
"Oh, certainly, certainly 1 By all
means."- ' . . ' ' ; '
"Well, then, they do say that Mrs.
FlashlDgton drove her . first husband
into his grave by her ungovernable
temper." '.- - - -
"I've, heard that before," said MaJ.
Delaford, puffing complacently away
at his cigar. '
"But, of course," with a little sarcastic
laugh, "you don't believe it?"
"Excuse me," said Maj. Delaford, se
verely,."! do believe It I have seen,
now and then, an expression in Jus
tlna's eyes which fully carries out any
theory of that nature."
"And ' yet you are going' to marry
her?" ' '.. '. : ' "
"And yet I am going to marry her."
"Felix Delaford, are you crazy ?"
"Not that l am aware of."
"Will you be honest with me?"
"To be sure," nodded the Major. :
"Then, why do you marry Mrs. Flash
Ington?" ." . . : t ;
"Well, from a variety of reasons. One
'YKB, A BUUTJC, AKD I'M SOBUV I EVKB
is that I like her. She's a pretty little
gypsy, with a skin like white velvet,
and delicious long lashes to her eyes!"
. "Proceed." , ; , . . - ?
; "A second is mind, now, I never did
pretend to be one of the disinterested
lovers one reads about in dime novels
that, the dear, departed Flashington
left her' remarkably well off. . And I
have more merit than money." r
"I think you will repent it," said Mr,
Crinklethorpe, "for, by' all accounts,
the black-eyed divinity is neither more
nor less. than a virago.". .-. ,.-," :
"There are very few actions In this
world that one - doesn't - repent, in -a
greater or less degree," said Maj. Dela
ford, sententlously, "but, averaging
things, I'm willing to risk it."
And MaJ. Delaford was married the
next week to Mrs. Flashington.
It was not long, as Mr. Crinklethorpe
had foretold,' before the.claw began to
peep from under Mrs. Flashington Del
aford's velvet sheath. :'
j "Felix," she said one day, "I don't
like this location." . ' . '-
"Don't you, my. dear?" said Maj. Del
aford. "I've lived here two-and-thirty
years and always found it very pleas
ant." "I don't like it,", said Mrs. Delaford.
"I prefer a house nearer the park." . ft
MaJ. Delaford went on reading.
I "Felix, I say?" The bride's voice
was raised a degree or so higher the
dangerous sparkle had come into her
v"Yes, Justy.' j, , 4, r '
"I mean to moye uptown.".. - ;
"And. at once.".. ... ... ..
"Very weU," said the Major, "then
you will move alone. I shall remain
where I am." y , t. .. v, . T v . , . -'
"Maj. Delaford", you are a brute!"
The Major bowed.1 Justina burst Into
tears. . '
- "Yes, a brute, and I'm sorry I ever
. And after that Mrs. Delaford did not
speak to her husband, for two days.
But as the Major appeared In no wise
affected by this taciturnity she adopted
another plan, and scolded steadily for
three days. . .; -
"Look , here, Justy, this , won't ..do,"
said the Major, at the week's end. ""I
don't fancy either a dumb woman or a
fury!" - . -; i
"That. I should live to be so spoken
to," whimpered Mrs. Delaford; ;'
" "So,''t Went on the Major, "I have
written to my cousin Rosamond Bly, to
come and spend the summer here."
"I won't have ' her : In' my house!"
"But I will have her In mine," com
posedly retorted the husband. r
'.'Let me see her presume to enter this
house!" cried Justina. .'.
"Let me see you presume to be un
civil to her," said the Major, knitting
his brows In a way that Mrs. Delaford
had never seen in her late husband's
countenance. For, to tell the truth, the
late Mr. FlashlDgton had been but a
chicken-hearted Individual at best.
Mrs. Delaford flounced out of the
room and banged the door viciously be
hind her. ,
Miss Bly arrived the next day a
cherry-cheeked, bright-eyed girl,, with
lips wreathed In smiles, and a brand
new traveling suit cut after a deal pret
tier pattern than the bride's own. Mrs.
Delaford refused to speak to her.
, "Justina," said ber husband, In a
warning voice, "this Is my cousin, Ros
amond. I hope you will make her wel
come to our home."
But Mrs. Delaford only threw a slip
per at her husband, burst Into tears,
and rau hysterically upstairs. -
"Oh, Felix! what's the matter?"
asked Rosamond, half-frightened out of
her senses. "Had I better go home?"
"By no means, my dear Rosamond,"
said the Major. "You see, I have mar
ried a woman with a temper. But she'll
be all the more charming when that
fault Is rooted out of her character." ,
- The Major went upstairs and tried to
open the door. . It was locked.
"Justina," he said, gently, "it is I.
Let me in." 7
"I won't!" snapped the bride.
"Will you come downstairs, then?"
"I will not come out of my room until
that woman is out of the house!" sput
tered forth Mrs. Delaford.
"Very well, my dear,' 'said the Major,
and he returned to the drawing-room
with unruffled philosophy. . ..
Mrs. Delaford adhered to her resolu
tion, although "it was much tried by
'sundry ' peculiar sounds she heard on
the outside of her door. v
"Maj. Delaford has carpenters al
work altering the house," thought she.
"It makes but little difference to me In
any case. I shan't stay here."
. At the end of the third day, however,
she concluded to go downstairs.. But
when she opened the door, lo and be
hold! her egress was barred by a grated
iron door. . . . - I v . v
. "Mercy upon us!" cried Mrs. Dela
ford. "What is this?"
. "Please, ma'am," said the little maid,
who had brought up her meals three
times a day, "it's master as had It
done." . . . .' -
.. "What for?" cried Justina.
"Please, ma'am," said Hetty, trem
bling all over, "don't you know you're
crazy?" 7 " ' ' " .. ,
"Insolent minion!" . said ' Mrs.- Dela
ford, "call your master at once.''
, MaJ. Delaford came immediately up
stairs, with Rosamond Bly clinging in
a frightened sort of way to his arm.
"How do you feel now, my dear?" he
"I'm well enough," snarled Mrs. Del
aford. "Open that door, quick!" "
"Mad! Very mad, Indeed!" said MaJ.
Delaford, in a sotto voce, turning to
"Ruffian 1" crfed the bride, "how dare
you speak so?" ' .
r "Getting violent!" added the Major,
shaking his head. - , "V ' ;
"Let me out, I say!" persisted Mrs.
Delaford, rattling at the bars. "What
does this absurd mummery mean?"
"Perhaps a strait waistcoat would
be advisable," said the Major. "But as
long as she remains tolerably manage
able I shall not send her an asylum."
Mrs. Delaford began to cry. -
"Oh, Felix, how -can you talk so?"
sobbed she. "I am as sane as you are!"
"Poor thing!" murmured the Major,
compassionately. "The hardest part of
Insanity must be when one becomes
partially cornsclous of its deadly doom."
Mrs. Delaford shut the door rather
vehemently and began to cry hysteri
cally. . " .: .- ;
. "I'm not mad!" said she. , "I won't be
made a mad woman of!"
But how to help herself that was the
question. The door was barred effec
tuallythe windows opened upon the
dead wall of a neighboring Institute of
the Fine Arts, and were three stories
above ground. Sho might have shrieked
herself hoarse in that direction before
any one could hear her. She sat down
to think. What should she do?" What
was to" become of her? Did that dread
ful hint of Felix concerning the asylum
mean anything? For once In her life
the late Mrs. Flashington was actually
frightened. . .
"Has my temper really been so terri
ble," she asked herself, "that people
mistake it for I can hardly breathe the
word insanity?" .
It was a new idea; she pondered it
carefully and cried bitterly over It. :
When Hetty came, as usual, with the
napkin-covered tray, Mrs. Delaford's
face was pale and tear-swollen.
"'Hetty," said she, "will you ask your'
master to step up here for a few niln
utes?"'7 ,. '.....
Maj. Delaford obeyed the summons
at once.. - . . -
"Well, my love," said he, "what is
it?" v '-- r ' ---
.. "Felix," said Mrs. Delaford, bursting
Into fresh tears, "I have acted very
foolishly. - I beg your pardon. And I
beg Rosamond's pardon, too." ' '
Maj. Delaford opened the grated door
at once Justina flew Into his arms
and then there was a reconciliation af
ter the most approved style.. ' r . '
; Mrs. Delaford was as sweet as a June
morning after that and If ever she
manifested symptoms of a relapse all
that Maj. Delaford . found necessary
was to allude?, in a general way, to lun
atics and asylums, -

Millions Subsist am ttioe.
Without question, the grain most
extensively used as an article of food
all the world over is rice. Hundreds
of million of people chiefly subsist on
it,; and its consumption is constantly
increasing. , It is the principal diet of
at least one-third of the human race,
formingthe chief food of the native popu
lations of. India, China, Japan, Mada
gascar; many parts of Africa, and in
fact of almost all eastern nations. The
Burmese and Siamese are the greatest
consumers of it. . A Malay laborer gets
through.66 pounds monthly; a Bnmese
or Siamese 46 pounds in . the same
period . 1 The eastern nations also chiefly
obtain their beverages from rice, which
is the principal grain distilled in Siam,
Japan, and China. Saki, or rice beer,
is produced in Japan to the extent of
150,000,000 gallons annually. Although
rice is such a universal article of food,
it is not so nourishing as wheat or some
other grains. . More, than nine-tenths of
its substance, consists of starch :. or
water; consequently it forms more fat
than muscle. The yield of rice is five
times as heavy as that of wheat,.' fhe
two crops yearly giving from eighty to
a hundred bushels per acre.
