TWO BLIND MICE.
How They Met Aitr Three Ypara and
How Tliejr 1'nrteu.
She (Hurpriscdly) Why, rfarry! you
dfar old fellow bow do you do. Where
hme you been hldinfr all these past
years, and why did yon withdraw the
lit of your eotintenanee from us?
lie (trraclouHly) How glad I am to
e you! But bow you have chanjred,
Lilly! I scaroely knew you. Can't we
find a quiet corner and have a good old
She (merrily)- Just the thing! Eeally,
I wa druaniing of you last Wednesday
night. Letniesee. You were in Egypt
no, you were in a coxy beer garden in
Germany, smoking your pipe and lis
tening to one of thoso delightful bands,
J)o tell me where you've been.
lie (easily) Well. I've been doing
England, you know, purifying my ac
cent and learning to eat cold meat
breakfasts. But those months will
never figure in history.
She (archly) Yes, but haven't you
lost your heart?-
He (lightly) How could I when I left
it with yon? Did you have to wrap it in
cotton? Why; it's just about three
years ago that we sat here and
She (nervously) Don't Harry, please
He (solicitously) Why, what's tt
She (sedately) Haven't you heard?
He (heavily) I've heard a good deal,
I confess; but may be I haven't heard
what ytu want to confess.
She (quietly) Why, I married Mr.'
He (gayly) O, Lilly! You naughty,
naughty girl. How dare you show your
face here to-night. There, there, don't
She (fervently) But, I'm nt. The
Idea of a mother
He (excitedly) What!
She (honestly) Do you mean to tell
me you haven't heard of our twins?
She (musingly) They are darling
boys, Harry, and as sweet-tempered as
He (hysterically) Ye gods!
She (persistently) Yes, both of them.
He (laughingly) Well, well! I could
not have believed such a thing possible.
To think that you, Lilly, only three
years ago, on this very spot
She (hastily) Not that subject, Harry.
Ho (eagerly) Very well. But the
scent' of the roses, cLon't you know, will
hang round it still. . w
She (thoughtfully) Let bygones be
'lie (helpfully) So let it be. And the
twins? 1 suppose you huvo' christened
them Gautama and Buddha, or some
thing like that, eh? Buddhism used to
be your favorite fad. Is little Gautama
pretlispoMod to colic and does Buddha's
nose sutler from occult assaults?
She (warmly) They are both charm
ing, boys, Harry. Doctor Skuleton vows
they are the first twins on record who
recovered from the measles in a month.
He .(kindly) I'm sure they're beau
ties, 1)008 Monte bear his sorrows
blessings, 1 moan. Doos he er toddle
them on his knee, and all that sort of
thing? He was deucedly lucky to get a
gold dollar for a penny.
She (perplexedly) A penny?
He (nervously) Pardon my Anglo
Saxon. You're the gold dollar, of course.
Poor Monte! I remembor distinctly his
telling me he intended becoming a monk
a sort of sentimental prisoner of Chil
lon, you know. But now, I suppose, he
stays at home of an evening and reads
cookery receipts and "How to Live on
Bale in the town of
double in value in
$150 a Lot, some of
S500 a Year."
She (gravely) Well, he has his clubs
still, and he stays down at his office
quite late some nights; he has to work
very hard now.
He (dreamily) Yet, I've met him at
the theater several times. But one
feels as if one could trust a cat with a
pan of milk when one is thoroughly ac
quainted with the cat.
She (uneasily) Do you know, Harry,
sometimes odd moments, you know I
think he spends a good many nights' at
bis "office. There, just see how he's
flirting with that woman ove by the
mantel; the one in that absurd gown of
lilac silk, I mean.- - -r
He (pettishry) Nonsense, Lilly,
they're simply chatting.
She (curiously) Who is she? I can't
for the life of me remember her face. .
He (hurriedly) O, some stranger.
Rather pretty, I think! Very neat waist
and fetching eyes, eh?
She (smilingly), You used to prefer
blue eyes once, Harry, while hers are
brown and small at that.
He (hotly) What! you call those eyes
small? Why, they're large and poetic and
trusting. Did you ever see any thing to
beat that hair or those hands? You
must admit, Lilly, that she has a very
small and pretty hand. Look at that
She (naturally) Ilow enthusiastic we
are. Why, Harry! what's the matter?
He (moodily) The matter? Well,
Lilly, it's rather disagreeable for a fel
low to have even his warmest friend
descant in that way about the only girl
a fellow ever
She (breathlessly) Harry!
He (dangerously) Well?
She (excitedly) O, Harry, your don't
He (feebly) Well, ahem yes. You
see, Lilly, she er that is, we er we
we were married just seventy-eight
She (mockingly) O, Harry! Just to
think that three years ago we sat here
He (stubbornly) It was three years
and a half.
She (cruelly) I say, that you should
marrv so soon and forget r-
lle (desperately) But it was she who
She (tlippnntly) Poor boy,. how you
were taken in!
He (flushingly) Now listen, Lilly, do.
She's the dearest
She (bauteringly) 'Lemon or peach?'
He (severely) What nonsense! I met
She (sweetly) And so you were mar
ried! lie (severely) Well, now that you
know it all, I want you two to be friends.
Lillv. Bv the way, that waltz soems
familiar. Why, its your old favorite
'La Gitana.' Old times for old friend.

There are several terms in the glove
trade that may bo worth explaining.
The word "kid" really means kid leath
er, and there can bo little doubt that the
better grades of what purport to be such
are made of tho cuticle of the infant
goat About twice a year somo nowspa
per revives the old yarn that kid gloves
are made of rat-skin and tells how the
rats are hunted for that purpose In the
aewers of Paris. Tho only foundation
there is for tho story is that some years
ago experiments were tried with rat
skins. Tho results were unfavorable,
e largest skins being too small forany
but a child's glove, and the pelt too ten
der to be of any service. . -
"Chevrotte, a term used to distin
guish some gloves of a dressy character
for street wear, is both French and Lng
lish, and has several liberal meanings.
It is from "cbevre," a goat, and we are
justified in expecting a chevrette glove
to be of young goat-skin, in distinction
from the heavy goat gloves used for
rough work. Great progress has been
made, however, in tanning sheep and
lamb-skins in recent years, and they are
now rendered so elegant and so durable
as to bo practically indistinguishable
from goat leather in looks or wear.
Until within a few years "dogskin
gloves" were always made of lamb or
goat skin, never of tho real canine cuti
cle. Lately, however, the difficulties of
dressing have been overcome, and now
excellent gloves are made of real dog
skin, though tho quantity is not very
large. Only the finer grades of skin are
suited to street wear, tho heavier
skins being dressed in oil for hard
usage. " . .-...,
Gloves called "castor" have had quite
a history. The word indicat3 the skin
of tho bearer, but the best French cas
tor gloves were formerly made of thin
deer skin, and were soft, durable and
expensive. Latterly shaved lamb or
sheep skin was used, and the goods were
-unsatisfactory. These were displaced
by American castors made , of antelope
skins from our Westernplains. They are
3ewed with silk and are handsome and
durable. Of late years a new leather
has been brought out called Mocha cas
tor. It is the skin of the Egyptian
sheep, and is very thin,, tough and
durable,, and has a rich, velvety appear
ance. Colt skin is a new comer for glove pur
poses, and is an exceedingly smooth,
fine leather, suitable for in or out door
wear. Such expressions as "Craven
Tan," "Cis-Atlantic," "Gant do Luxe,"
nd others, are tho trade-marks of par
ticular makers, and are indicative of
special designs. Men's Outfitter.

It is said to have been demonstrated
that the cotton stalk, which has hither
to been regarded as waste; contains val
uable fiber. A lot of the stalks were re
cently sent from Arkansas to a factory
in New York to be operated on in the
same manner as flex and hemp. There
were returned about twenty different
grades of fibrous material, from coarse
strands of the stalk to the glossy fiber
as soft as silk. Persons are. now engaged
in perfecting a machine that will spin
the material. Tho fiber is sufficiently
strong to make the best of bagging, as
well as cloth as fine as linen.
At the last meeting of tho French
Academy of Science, M. Paul Gibier gave
an account of his rocent researches re
garding tho resistance to. the action ol
cold on trichinae contained in meats.
The substances on which his re
searches were carried out were hams
salted with a mixture of marine salt and
saltpeter. The trachinos which were
found in them did not resist the action
of a temperature of a few degrees under
freezing point, maintained for nearly an
hour. The case is different, however,
when the meat is not salted, as then a
Jomperature of twenty-five degroos be
low the freezing point-continued even
for two hours, is sufficient to render
fresh meats containing trichinae sweet.
