Scales at a Virginia Resort So Fixed as to
Add Twenty or Thirty Pounds.
When tho fattest young lady at
Fort Monroe got upon tho scales there
was a. hush of expectancy. Up to
that time everybody was pleased, be
cause every one seemed to havo
gained in weight Tho little girl with
tho auburn ringlets had uttered a lit
tle shriek of delight when sho found
for the first time in her life Bho tipped
tho Bcales at over 100 pounds. Tho
youthful matron in black, who had
Baid all along that it was only her
mourning that mado her look thin

dupois was registered at 111.
As for the fair creature with tho
balloon sleeves and incipient crino
line, sho declared that she had never
before weighed within eight pounds
as much. When tho fattest young
lady got aboard, sho said with amia
"Put on that 50-pound weight Til
So the iron disk representing BO
pounds was put on, and the register
was slid along by the girl with the
auburn ringlets. Strange to say, it
passod up to the very end of tho bar
without making tho scale drop.
"Guess you'll have to put on an
other CO," giggled tho unfeeling crea
turo in the balloon sleeves.
The fattest young lady began to

But tho girl with auburn ringlets
had already added tho extra 50-pound
weight, which caused tho scale to re
spond at once. It promptly regis
tered 202 pounds. Tho fattest young
lady looked as though sho did not
know whether to buret into tears or
to slap off tho bonnet of the girl with
the auburn ringlets and stamp on it
"It is a cheat and a horrid fraud L"
sho declared. Then she raised her
parasol with an emphasis that nearly
broke one of tho ribs and marched
Just at that moment a colored
waiter passed by with a basketful oi

"What do you mean?" she asked.
"Dey is fer folks what comes here

The nine Glass Fad..
Perhaps tho queerest fad of modern
times was that which placed the elixir
of life in blue glass. That the color
of light has certain influences on life,
especially life of the lower sort as in.

doubtedly affected by tho color of
light, and animal life needs light If '
an animal bo deprived of light, it will
become what is called ancomio, but
exactly why no ono knowB. Reason- j
ing from the observed effects of blue
light upon some plants, the inventor
of tho fad prebcribed baths under
blue glass for aU.
You wero to strip yourself, I ro-
momber, and lie down under tho blue
gloss for many hours each day. And
tho queerest thing about tho whole
business was tho fact that somo of
tho devotees not only declared them
selves benefited by tho treatment so
long fts thoy believed In it, but were
unquestionably 60 benefited. I say -so
long as thoy believed in it, for I
do not think thoro aro many If in ,
