Barlow's death was a question of only
a few hours at most.
But Barlow did not die. His wife
came promptly and had him removed

both generals were guests at a dinuet

them together and formally introduced
them. Time had altered the personal
appearance of both.
"Are you any relation to the General
Barlow who was killed at Gettys

"Yes: a very near relation," an

the very man who was killed. But I

Tragedy of Little Tiling Thnt

The judge and spectators in a Kan

husband testified that his wife gave
him only "mechanical kisses."
Then the lawyers devoted many min

was a salutation given only through a
sense of duty, and then they laughed
They didn't go far enough. They
might have called It a tragedy.
With most women affection lasts. It
burns as strongly in old age as in gold

joy to them.
Some men forget. They grow care

selfishness, i.nce 11 w;s a prixilee to
press a lover's kiss on the lips of a

And one morning the man forgot the

And a shadow fell on a romance, and
the woman wept. She tried to be brave
and sensible. She tried to laugh at the
silly fear that he didn't care for her.
She assured herself a hundred times
that It was such a little thing and that
it was natural for him to forget and
that it was unreasonable for her to ex

life. She wiped away her tears and re

"From an artistic point of view it
may seem absurd, but It Is neverthe
less true that American taste dominates
the output of Turkish rugs," said a
man who has made a study of these
beautiful products of the orient. "Any
Importer will bear me out IiTthla. Of
course, inasmuch as the Armenians
and Turks who make these rugs have
no power looms on which to repro
duce exact copies, it would seem ridic
ulous to suppose that more than one
rug of the same pattern and design
could be turned out But the American
dealer has learned to know pretty
much what sort of rug. appeals to the
American buyer, and he says to his
agent on the other side, 'Make me a
lot of rugs that look as much like this
as possible.' So the native weavers,
on their hand looms, do their best to
copy the colors of a special design
that is put before them. This handi
caps them, for these untutored artisans
have their own Ideals, Just as a painter
of pictures has, and it is galling to be
thus restricted. It is also not very
gratifying to realize that the rich
American, who is often the parvenu,
with no Idea of art, should dictate the
output of an artistic product thnt Is
centuries old. But the rich American
is the greatest buyer of oriental rugs
and must be considered." Philadelphia

Cock's feathers are for the moment
exceedingly smart and are worn on
both the stiff felt and soft beaver hats.
They are supposed to be water proof

Eniclnnd's "Ancient Light."
Englishmen, at least the more pro
gressive among them, are finally awak

which establishes what are known as
"ancient lights." Under this law win
dows which have been in existence for
nineteen years or more cannot be de
prived of light by the construction of
neighboring buildings without due com
pensation having been made to the
owner. In other words, an owner nf
land cannot erect a building which will
shut in any of the windows of neigh
boring buildings, providing the latter
have been In existence for nineteen or
more years, without making himself
liable to extensive damages. More
over, the damaged owner can prevent
the erection of any such building which
will take away his light if he wishes to
do so. The light, by virtue of the time
he has enjoyed it has become a part of
his property. Efforts are now being
made to have this relic of past ages
repealed. It is this more than anything
else that has prevented the erection of
