ISOLATION OF GREAT CITIES.
That there is, after all, no place ao
lonesome as a great city, where people
are not orer-curious about their neigh
bor, is shown in the case of Mrs. llarv
Dinan, and the 14-months-old baby.
Johnny Boyle, whom this motherly wo
man had adopted. The child was her
sole companion in a suite of three
rooms in a tenement house, and when
he was stricken and fell dead on the
floor of her kitchen as she was preparing
breakfast, there was no one to look
after the wants 0f the little fellow. The
doors were locked, that being the cut
torn, apparently, in tenements. Only
by a fortunate accident was the real
condition of things discovered, after
nearly a week had elapsed, and the lit
tie fellow rescued at almost his last
gasp, after a fight for life remarkable
in one so young. In a smaller place,
such as a country Tillage, for instance
or a suburban settlement, that would
have been impossible, for neighborly in
tarest, sometimes abused as idle cur
ioity, is too great not to cause inquiry
when a neighbor and particularly
"lone woman," is not seen for many
days. Mrs. Dinan's neighbors thought
she had gone away. In a smaller com
munity they would have known for
certain. After all, living in smaller
neighborhoods has its advantages.

SLEEVES FOR WINTER.
Xo sooner does one mention winter
than one begins to think of the new
winter sleeves. Shall they be long or
shall they be short? These are ques
tions more harrowing than a studv of
the international peace conference. The

One writer says that there will be
short sleeves and that these sleeves
will be much trimmed above the el
bow. Another insists that the new
sleeves are to be long. Judging from
French standards they will be short.
though not above the elbow. A famous j
French man dressmaker, one of those
wonderful personages who decides the
styles for the coming season, has this
to say about the winter sleeve: "Young
women and all beautiful women whose
physical peculiarities are such that it is
not becoming or to elderly women who
can not stand the weather. But all
young women who aim at smartness
will wear the elbow sleeve, which will
be puffed at the shoulder. Women like
the short sleeve because it is so very
becoming to the hand and arm. It dis
plays the fashionable bracelet and the
jeweled bangle. And they like it be
cause it is dressy. The long sleeve, un
less of very handsome material, is not
a dress v sleeve."

Lawyerless Age Is Coming
A curious discovery has been made in
the codification of the laws passed by
the North Carolina Legislature last
year. In 1901 an anti-trust and monop
oly law was passed. In 1905 the laws
were revised, with three or four excep
tions, but somehow this law was not
brought over. Only the penalty for vio
lation of the law in question appears
in the code. This makes violation of
the supposed law a misdemeanor, pun-
isnaDie by fine or imprisonment, or
both, at the discretion of the court,
and each day such violation exists, af
ter conviction and final judgment in
the first trial, constitutes a separate
offense. This, according to the "Will
mington Messenger," leaves North Car
olina the only State in the Union with
out an anti-trust law, and any num
ber of illegal combinations, it points
out, can be made in the Old State,
without legal means of punishing them.
There seems to be work ahead for the
coming Legislature, a few months hence.
ALWAYS A SUBSTITUTE.
Just as apprehensions are becoming
rife that our paper supply is threaten
ed through the growing scarcity of the
sort of trees from which wood pulp is
produced, the discovery is made by an
Austrian inventor at Bucharest of a
new process of manufacturing paper
from common marsh reeds, which
proves better than that made from es
parto grass, or even wood pulp, and,
better still, is nearly the equal of
that made from rags, which has al-1
ways been the best, though not the
cheapest. There is an immense marshy
tract on the Danube delta and the Do
brudska, belonging to the crown of Rou
mania, on which these reeds grow in
rank profusion. Heretofore the peasants
have used a small portion of them for
PREPARED TO ACCOMMODATE.
Last summer a well known profes
sor went with his family to a small
seaside resort on the east coast, ami
boarded with a farmer who was in the
habit of taking paying guests. This
year he wrote to the farmer and in
his letter he said: "There are several
little matters that I desire changed
should I decide to pass my holidays
at your home. We don't like the maid
Mary; moreover, we do not think a sty
so near the house is sanitary." The
fanner replied: "Mary is went, and we

"I had the good luck to be invited to
dine with the king at Marlborough
house, when I was in London in June,"
said Western millionaire.
"As I didn't know how to dress the
part of a royal guest, I wrote to Lord
Knollys, the king's secretary, and asked
"Lord Knollys said in bis reply:
"'As no ladies are to be present
trousers may be worn.'
"When I first read that sence, I said
""What kind of Neronic revels go on
at Marlborough house, anyway!'
"Afterwards, though, I learned that
Lord Knollys only meant that at mixed
dinners knee breeches were worn at
Marlborough house, at stag ones, the
ordinary evening suit sufficing."

Every mother should take the time
and money to keen herself and her
children neatly and becomingly dressed.
It is especially necessary that chil
dren should be taught both by precept
and example the value of dress. In
childhood habits are formed. The chil
dren who are accustomed to seeing their
mother with her hair becomingly ar
ranged and in a pretty gown and who
are themselves compelled while young
to pay attention to the little details of
cleanliness and dress, will never grow
up to be slatternly men and women
Mrs. Kate Nohles, who made the
products of her chewing gum factory
known . and popular throughout the
country, began in a small way by mak
ing limited quantities of the gum in her
own kitchen. She sold the products
in her own and surrounding towns, and
soon worked up a trade that demanded
all her attention. Her business grew
steadily, until she had a large factory
at Niles, Mich., and salesrooms in Chi
cago. Although in the course of a few
years Mrs. Nohleg had a large number
of persons in her employ, she never re
laxed the reins of active management,
but looked after the details of her ex
tensive businesg with the same care
that had made the first products of her
kitchen so readily salable.
