less than this amount you take your

The power of fascination Inherent In
women may, moreover, lie divided Into
two kinds. A II of us have huoii the old
lady, generally w hllo-halrisl, with kind
ly, pleasant features, on which lime has
set no unfriendly mark, who still retains
all her attracllieness. Nolo how the
I toys ami girls adore her; they will go to
tier and conllde their sorrow a, their
hopon, thulr ambitions, even when they
would nut breathe a word to their
mothers. The kindly, loving Interest
winced In a lad's attalrs by such a ono
has tlmo and again llrst Implanted the
Impulses In his heart which eventually
led ti 1 111 on to an honorable career.
IJiilcWly, almost ny slealtn, Hie good
Is done by such, and the good seed sown
which will rlH'ii tu after time Into a
rich ami abundant crop. On thu other
hand, we havo iiutst of us seen, jiorllapa
III real life, certainly 011 the stage, tho
fascinating adventuress tio. by her en
thralling licauto do (liable, enslaves
men's souls and lends them (on the
stngei to dare all for her sake. Kuril It
directly oppostsl to the sweet . old lady
111 her old-fashioned chair, and those
two form the oiMisllu 'les bntwooii
Which the womun who fascinate vary.
Tysis ililler, and any one you may so
lis't has some position between these
two opKislloH. Take, for Instance, a
pretty and may bo willy womun who,
hardly of her own free will, makes
every man fall In love with her to a
greater or loss degree. She may lm In
nocent of all evil intention, but her io-
sttlon oil the scale is not vastly removed
from that of the melo-ilraiuullc sorceress,
Or, again, take the instance o( the pret-
ty young matron who, w inlo devoted to
home, husband and children, yet has
several Intimate friends of the mule per
suasion. Hut her Inllueiico is all for
good. Her fascination Is exertisl In a
worthy cause, and she has found out a
great truth that thero Is no friendship
o lasting, o true ami so pleasant at 01111
between M'rons of upslto sexes,
wheru a truu fueling of Ixuiuo camara
derie exists ninl there Is lit, pretense of
lovo-maklug. Such a Woman, If she
lives long enough, bids fair to develop
Into a snowy-haired old lady on whose
friendship tho children will rely,

among the cotton hales, where alio was
accustomed to hunt rat. The cotton
thereby took fire and was burned up. It
was a total loss.
The three other nrt tiers brought an
action to ris'oicr the value of the cotton
against the fourth partner, who ownis.1
