"Xow, we haven't much time to
get ready, ray dear," suggested Mr.
Spoopendvke, cheerily, "and I -won't
be late at a dinner uarty. I want
you to fix up so as "to be the best
looking woman at the (able. You
can get ready in an hour, can't you?"
"1 think I can." reDlied" Mrs.
Spoopendyke, with a titter. "Oh,
yes, I can dress in that time, and I
hope you won't be disappointed in
me," and the little woman began to
, take down her back hair.
" lou miplit irotmv shn.vin tarlr1
for me," said Mr. Spoopendyke, ap
propriating me only mirror. "And
now I think of it," "he continued, af
ter a pause, "my dress coat needs a
button. Sew it on, won't you?"
Mrs. Spoopendyke lugged out the
coat, and huntedthrough a broken
down old has after a button that
j would do.
"Got that button sewed on yet?"
inquired Mr. Spoopendyke, lather
ing away comfortably.
"In a minute, my clear," responded
! ins wue.
j "Well, hurry up; I want you to
pul these studs and sleeve-buttons
into my clean shirt."
Mrs. Spoopendyke gradually got.
around to these offices, and laid out
the habiliments in readiness for her
"Did you take those stitches in mv
gloves?" inquired Mr. Speopendyke.
"O, yes; certainly," replied Mrs.
Spoopendyke ; "going right to work
"Well, then, you can brush my
vest and pantaloons, and by that
time I'll be ready to have you tie mv
A few moments more found Mr.
Spookendyke arrayed completel'.
"Come, you ready?" he demanded,
havinj; assured himself that his wife
had not accomplished a single step
toward her toilet.
"Not quite, dear," responded the
Iad'f with one-half her hair in her
mouth and the other half crackling
under the brush.
"What's the matter with you?" he
asked. "Didn't you say you could
get ready in an 'hour? " Didn't you
hear me tell you when I came in that
we only had an hour to dress in?
AVliat have you been doing? Why
can't you go as you are? You look
"I was busy fixing your things,"
faltered .Mrs. Spoopendyke, "and I
couldn't do two things at once."
"Oh, no! You can't do anything
at once. Why didn't you have m'
things fixed this mo'rning? Why
don't you keep house somehow?
That dress you've got is good enough.
Why can't you goin that dress? If
you've got to put on" all the frills vou
won't be leady till next fall. Ain't
you most ready now? Think I'm
going to stand around here like a jug
of mineral water?"
Mrs. Spoopendyke twisted up her
hair and jammed in the pins. Then
she put on her hat and twitched it
first one way and then the other;
put one hand up behind and shoved
it forward, and then caught hold of
it in front and pulled it down.
"Well, if you're ready, let's start,"
growled Mr. Spoopendyke. "You've
been long enough for a telegraph
wire now. Como on."
"Oh! I haven't got my dress on
yet," pleaded Mrs. Spoopendyke.
"I'll be through in a minute."
"Dod gast the dress !" ejaculated
Mr. Spoopendyke. "Where's my
paper? Give memy paper and I'll
read a month or two. You won't bo
ready till spring. "Where's that
"Take abook, dear," recommended
Mrs. Spoopendyke, blushing deeply,
and glancing around nervously.
"I don't want any measly book,"
retorted Mr. Spoopendyke. "I want
the morning paper. Find that pa
per the first thing you do, and then
you get ready in four seconds."
"I think you'll find the paper be
hind behind the book case," said
Mrs. Spoopendyke, as red as a brick,
and she hustled into her skirt and
began clawing at it behind in an ef
fort to loop it up straight. "I'm al
most ready," she giggled hysterically
as she drew on the waist and but
toned it up nervously. "I'll be
ready before you could turn the paper
inside out," and she snatched a rib
bon from the drawer, tied it in a
bow, pinned it at her throat and
backed away from the glass to see
how it looked.
"I want to know whether you're
going to find that dod gasted "paper
for me!" thundered Mr. Spoopen
dyke." 'I'm all right except my cloak,"
jerked out Mrs. Spoopendyke. "If
you'll hand me my cloak we'll start
right away. It's in the closet there."
And Mrs. Spoopendyke flopped down
on the floor and began putting on
"S'pose I'm going to hunt around
for that measly cloak?" howled Mr.
Spoopendyke. "Can't you get your
things yourself? I want my paper,
and I want it now !"
"T can tell you what was in it,"
said Mrs. SpOopendvke. "I can tell
vou all about it while I dress," and
she looked up at him pleasantly, with
tier lace all liusneu.
"No doubt," retorted Mr. Spoop
endyke. "You know all about it.
All you want is a can of oil and ten
men swearing at you all day to be a
printing press. When are you going
'Now. I'm all ready, dear."
smiled Mrs. Spoopendyke, who
, wasn't anything of the sort. "You

They started off together arm in
arm, Mr. Spoopendyke growling and
his wife hitching at her various gar
ments as they went along.
"Another time we're going out to
dinner you be ready the day before,
you hear?" demanded Mr. Spoopen
dyke. ""Yes, dear," responded his wife,
and then she thought to herself,
"I'm very glad he didn't insist on
my looking for that paper."
England and Russia's War Footing.
"When an irresistible body comes
in contact with an immovable one
the result is supposed to be some
thing terrific. When England's repu
tation as a fighter is considered and
then Kussia's huge army, the largest
in the world, is stood up alongside of
it, the result of a war between these
nations is looked upon with dread.
Russia's regular army is the largest
in the worm, and her'navy has more
vessels than that of any other nation.
The standing army of Russia consists
of 780,000 men, and her navy of 373
vessels. Russia pays for the main
tenance of her army $125,000,000 a
year, a sum several millions greater
than that paid by any other nation
for this purpose.
Great Britain's standing army is
only 182,000 men against Russia's
780,000, and her army, when on a
war footing, 042,000, against Russia's
2,300,000 when on a war footing.
England pays $90,000,000 a year for
her army, against Russia's $125,000,
000. And yet Great Britain's army
costs 2.37 for each head of her popu
lation, while Russia's costs her only
$1.27 per inhabitant. Even if Great
Britain takes into account her India
contingent (the army of British India
is 190,000, and on a war footing 380,
000) the total would be, in either
case, less than half of Russia's force.
Russia has the largest standing army
of the world 780,000. Italy "comes
next with 750,000, France next with
530,000", Germany next with 445,000,
China"next with 300,000, Austria and
Hungary next with 283,000 British
India next with 190,000, Great Britain
next with 182,000.
Russia's navy has 373 vessels, that
of France 302, Great Britain 240,
though it is proper to add that Great
Britain's navy costs about three times
as much as that of Russia. Times
An American Type.
Wonderful is the influence of a
man who has an actual belief in any
thing, even if it be only in himself!
He magnetizes and enchants the nega
tive and neutral-tinted mass of his
fellows. The infirmity of such men
often is, that they are as fickle as
they are earnest. . They see and feel
with such vividness that they do not
see and feel the same thing long. In
the course of a lifetime tliey will pas3
through a complete circle of opinions
and practices, each one of which,
nevertheless, appears to be the direct
logical outcome of the preceding one.
Such men are dangerous to conser
vative institutions, and subversive of
the calculations of political econo
mists and statisticians; but, if it were
not for them, the world would soon
cease to revolve, and hang idly on its
axis. They are more at home" in this
country than in Europe ; but for that
very reason, they are perhaps more
useful in Europe than they are here,

the lowest, is pre-eminent. It is the

Using the Parlor.
In one sense it should not be a liv
ing room, because it should be the
one place in all the house where
work is not an obtrusive suggestion.
It should be a refuge from all busi
ness associations and from all toil
that is wearisome or distasteful. In
this room there should be only the
most restful and peaceful associa
tions. A place free from the worrieu
of life is really necessary for the
healthy development, and in its ap
pointments it must be comfortable to
the person, tranquilizing to the mind
and gratifying to the eye. To producu
this result care should be exercised
not to make the parlor a "family re
frigerator" or give it a stiff and for
bidding air. There is nothing sacred
about the room; there is no reason
why one should feel so constrained
