SPOOPENDTKE'S BATHQTCt SUIT.
"My dear," observed Mr. Spoopendyke,
looking up from his paper, "I think I
would be greatly benefitted this summer
by sea baths. Bathing in the surf is an
excellent tonic, and if you will, my dear,
make ine up a suit, and one for yourself,
if you like, we'll go down often, and take
a dip in the sea wares."
"The very thing," smiled Mr. S., "you
csrtainly need something to tone you up
and there's nothing like salt water.

let me see, yours ought to be of red, my
a don t think you caught the exact
drift of my remarks," retorted Mr. Spoo
pendyke, "I rfidn't say that I was going
iiiiu tuts opera Dusmess, or that i was
going to hire out to some country village
as a conflagration. My plan was to go
in swimming, and not grow np with the
country -as a cremation furnace. You
J can make yours of blue, if you xant it,
but you don't make mine of red, that's

"Most indubitably, Mrs. Spoopendyke,
but if you think I'm going to masquerade
around Manhattan beach in the capacity
of a ham, you haven't yet seized my idea.
I don't apptehend that I shall benefit by
the waters any more by looking like a
Santa Cruz rum barrel What I want
is a bathing Buit; and if you can't get me
up one without making me look like a
Fulton street car, I'll go and buy some-
I thing to suit me."
"Would you like it all in one piece, or
do you want pants and blouse 1"
"I want a suit easy to get in and out
of. I'm not particular about following
the fashion. Make up something neat,
plain and substantial, but don't stick any
fancy colors into it. I want it modest
Mrs. Spoopendyke made up the suit
under tli rruirlnnrw r.t a lo tiA

"I'll try it on to-night," said Mr. Spoo
pendyke, eyeing it askance when it was
handed to him.
Before retiring at night Mr. Spoopen
dyke examined the suit, and began to
get into it.
"Why didn't you make some legs to
it r Why d'ye want to make it all arms
for T he inquired, struggling around to
see why it didn't come up behind.
"You've got it on sideways!" exclaim
ed Mrs. Spoopendyke. "You've got one
leg m the sleeve."
"I've got it on sideways! There ain't
any top to it Don't you know enough
to put the arms where they belong t

suggested Mrs. Spoopendyke., "It looks

said 'Put this leg here and that one

"Then it's all right, and its me that's
twisted," sneered Mr. Spoopendyke, "IH
have my arms and legs altered. All I
want is to have my leg jammed into the
small of my back, and my arms stuck in
to my hips; then it'll fit. What did you

"I think if you take it off and try it
on over again, it'll work," reasoned Mrs.
"Oh, of course, I've only got to humor
the gasted thing; that's all it wants," and
Mr. Spoopendyke wrenched it off with a
"Now, pull it en," said Mrs. Spoopen
dyke. Mr. Spoopendyke went at it again, and
reversed the order of disposing of his

the way you meant it to got What's

"Those are the legs, I'm atraid," said
Mrs. Spoopendyke, dejectedly.
"What are, they doing here t I see;

Spoopendyke danced around the room in
'Just turn it over, my dear," said Mrs.
Spoopendyke, "and you are all right"
"How am I going to turn it overt"
yelled Mr. Spoopendyke; "S'pose I'm
going to carry around a steam boiler to
turn me over when I want the other end
of this thing upt S'pose I'm going to
aire a man to go around with a griddle
spoon, and turn me over like a flap-jack,
just to please this podgasted bathing suit 1

"Just take it off and put it on the oth
er way, urged Mrs. Spoopendyke, who
began to see her way clear.
Mr. Spoopendyke kicked the structure
up to the ceiling, and plunged into it
once more. J. his time it camu out all
right, and as he buttoned it up and sur
veyed himself in the glass the clouds
passed away and he smiled.
"I like it," he remarked; "the color
suits me, and I think you have done very
well, my dear; only" and he frowned
slightly, "I wish you'd mark the arms
and legs so that I can distinguish one

MOEXTAM LAKES OF IDAHO.
At the head of the Salmon river, 55
miles from Bonanza, is Alturas lake, 8,
000 feet high, eight or nine miles long,
has a boat on it, and of course is naviga
ted. But there is a lake on the Saw
Tooth mountains that has probably no
equal in the United States. It is about
70 or 80 miles from Bonanza, and at an
altitude of nearly 12,000 feet The lake
lies in a basin among the sharp crags of
the snowy Saw Tooth, and is a sheet of
perpetual ice. It was discovered in Au
gust of last year by a party of prospectors,
and named Ice Lake. The sun seems to
have no effect upon it, except in places
bordering the shore. It is simply a great
bowl of hard mountain rock brimful of
solid ice, a sort of glacier, upon which
the rays of the sun decend with no pow
er to penetrate.

MS. ELITES n THE WHITE HOUSE.
It is safe to say that no ' lady in the
present generation has produced a more
valuable impression by the grace and
simplicity of her manners in presiding at
the White House than she. It is worth
journey to Mashington to see so simple
and unconventional a lady at the very
head of the best American society. Her,
portraits do ber scant justice. ; Her face
is wonderfully mobile; it constantly1 ex
presses her own genuine enjoyment in the
enjoyment of her guests. - Her laugh is
contagious; and it would be as impossible
for a photopraph or even a portrait to
picture thir Me that sparaSes in her face
as for a picture to portray the sunshine
that dances on the dimpled surface of a
lake which ever and anon breaks out in
to a quiet rippled laughter.
Her social victory is complete, and has
been won after a hard battle. The story
has been told before, but it is worth re
telling. She came to Washington deter
mined not to offer wine to her guests;
this was the determination of a lifetime,
and she would not and could not aban
don it To give a state dinner without
wine was declared to be impossible; all
Washington society was opposed to her;
I believe it even became a Cabinet ques
tion. For a year she was a target for
the sort of arrows which it is so hard for
any woman to bear unflinchingly. But
she bore it all; by her patient persistence
and her tact she carried the day and con
quered Mrs. Grundy in her own field.
She never has offered wine; Washington
follows her lead; and I doubt whether
any State Capital, not excluding the
Capital of Maine, is a more thoroughly
temperance city than Washington to

"I ACKNOWLEDGE THE COKX."
The origin of the phrase, "I acknowl
edge the corn," is this : In 1828 Mr. Stew
art, a member of Congress, said in a
speech that Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana
sent their hay-stacks, corn-fields and fod
der to New York and Philadelphia for
sale. Mr. Wickliffe of Kentucky, called
him to order, declaring that those States
did not send hay-stacks or corn-fields to
New York for sale. "Well, what do you
send r asked Mr. Stewart "Why,
horses, mules, cattle and hogs." "WelL
.what makes your horses, mules, cattle
and hogs? You feed one hundred dollars'
worth of hay to a horse. You just ani-i
mate and get on top of your hay-stack
and ride off to market How is it with
your cattle t You make one of them carry
fifty dollars' worth of hay or grass to the
Eastern market How much corn does
it take at 33 cents a bushel, to fatten a
hogf "Why thirty bushels.'' "Then you
put thirty bushels into the shape of a
hog and make it walk oflf to the Eastern'
market" Then Mr. Wickliffe jumped
up and said, "Mr. Speaker, I acknowl-l
edge the corn." j

HOW IT FEELS TO DKOWX.
When I gave up all hope I did not
suffer one pang of remorse about my past
life. I have always been told that when
a man is drowning all his past life comas
before him and he suffers horrors of con
science. It was not so with me. I
thought of you my dear father and moth
er, and of you all at home, and what a
sorrow the news of my deatA would be to
you all, and then, strange to say, I
thought how people do lie. I have al
ways been told that death by drowning
is the easiest death, and yet here I am,
suffering agonies of pain and I remember
wishing if I am to be drowned let it bo
done quickly. Then I thought, I am
about to solve the problem about the fu
ture world, I felt the same feeling of shy
ness and dnead come over me that I felt
so often and never could conquer when I
was outside a drawing room door, and
about to be ushered into the presence of
a crowd of ladies and men. I hare been
asked if I never thought about the sharks
which infest the place. I am thankful
to say that never entered my head. " If
I had remembered them. I ' feel ' sure . I
should have gone down like a stone
