her royal throne. But White Spider
said, not in a cross voice but in a
pleasant tone, "Don't run away, little
mouse. Come back here and sit on
the throne beside me, and I will tell
you a story."
Little Brown Mouse dearly loved a
story so lie climbed up to the big
throne seat while White Spider sat in
her silvery thread house in a corner
by one arm and told him about a prin
cess who once lived in the castle.
"Long, long ago. in the tower of
this castle, a beautiful princess was
imprisoned," said the White Spider.
"Her mother was dead and the King
had married ngain. A bud, selfish
woman was the new Queen. She did
not love the little Princess, because
she would some day be Queen and
the stepmother wanted her own daugh
ter to have the royal title.
"So she coaxed the King into tak
ing a journey and leaving a servant
who was in the pay of the new Queen
to take care of the castle and the
Princess while they were away.
"As soon as they were gone this
wicked servant imprisoned the little
Princess In the tower and left her to
starve, for the new Queen and the

to coax the King into making her own

"Of course, the little Princess was

she was hungry, too. But when the

cess. 'Have they shut you in here,
too? But you won't starve, I suppose,
as I shall". Oh dear! If someone
would only toll my father, how quick

"'You won't starve, my pretty dear,'
I told her, 'and your father shall know

did not know it, they have Imprisoned

New York Riding More.
New York. The metropolis is for
getting how to walk. The transit com.
mission, which Sunday made public
figures to show that Now York's sub
way, elevated and surface lines car
ried 90.S93.000 more passengers last
year than the year before, believes ao
"increase in riding habit ' is respon
sible. Statisticians estimate that the
New Yorker took ten times as many
rides last year as he did in the sim
ple days of 1S60.
A rood custom Is better than a law.
OUR friends are beginning to travel
Now it is more like old times, and
if our friends go abroad they go with
lighter hearts and with more baggage.
Therefore it is quite the thing to give
them little gifts and, if they want us
to, to see them off. Be sure, though,
that you are wanted. Nothing Is more
embarrassing than to arrive unexpect
edly on the deck of a Steamer to find
the friend you have gone to see off
surrounded by an invited party of
which you are not a member. So don't
go unless you are quite certain that
you are wanted, both for your sake
and for the sake of the traveler.
As for the gifts you send, be sure
that they are really desirable, and not
merely something that will till up the
steamer trunk and bags. If you know
of some traveling accessory of which
your friend stands In need, that is a
good choice. A book is never amiss
because after it is read It can be left
on shipboard if it is in the way.
Candy, although it is a conventional
present, and one of the few things that
a man is supposed to give to a woman,
Is nevertheless not a very good choice.
A great many persons even though
they enjoy ocean travel are particu
larly careful not to Indulge In sweets.
Flowers, another of the conventional
gifts of men to women, are always In
perfectly good taste. However, ihey
are sometimes in the way in the state
room. If you know that anyone dis
likes flowers on the steamer dou't send
As in all other cases where sifts are
concerned a man may send dowers,
candy or books to a woman. Books
in this case Include magazines, and
sometimes half a dozen current maga
zines are as welcome a gift as auyone
could receive. They provide Just the
kind of reading that some People like
on shipboard and can be discarded
without a qualm when their reader Is
through with them.

THE ROMANCE OF WORDS
'TUBS word, generally used as
a synonym for "pirate," has
a most interesting history, being
derived in nn extremely round
about manner from the Dutch
vrljbuiter, translated phonetical
ly Into English as "freebooter"
and, by the nautical section of
the Hrltish Isles as "ilyboat."
"Flyboat" and "filibuster" do not
appear to have much In common,
but the original vrljbuiter be
came filibustler In the French
and fllihote In the Spanish,
while the pirates and smugglers'
who used these craft were
known as tilibusteros. Thus-we
have two words derived from
the same source "freebooter"
which is of unmistakably Dutch
origin and "filibuster" which Is
from the Dutch, by way of the
French and Spanish.
In this connection It Is also
interesting to note that the
"buccaneers," the generic term
for the pirates that menaced the
Spanish Main, were usually di
vided Into three classes the
boucanlers who hunted their
prey nearby, the filibustiers who
roved abroad in search of It and
the habltans who remained at
