'' "Much wo heartheso days of wonder-
tliy attractlTO, popular -women; tho
ttnany nice qualities that arc noeded
-lor tho winning of tho title. We may
mot be awnro of tho fact, but it is
ttruo Uiat women have equally definite
-though different opinions as to what
aa man should bo. This is far truer In
'European countries than In our own;
"for In America girls show their own,
taste and Judgmont in forming their
oeonoeptlons of what a man should bo?
'tout In tho foreign countries the gov
eminent public opinion, advice of
Sfrlenda and relatives create standards
Jfor them.
This trnth was brought home to
:uio with great forco In Berlin. One
day a young Gorman girl, my travel
'dug companion, and I wore walking
along Untcr den Linden. It was Whit-t-suntlde,
and tho streets were so
-.thronged with merrymakers that wc
Jfaad great difficulty In worming our
-way along. After walking some dls -
itnnco wo stopped before ono of tho
cafes so wo might watch tho people
aas they passed. Wo had not been
seated long when our Gorman friend
tasked me if I had seen the German
emperor and whfct I thought of him.
TL told her though I had been to Pots
dam I had not been given an audlonce

Mini; hos a splendid looking man;
mo well built and his features show
wurh Rtrongth and determination.
"But why shouldn't ho bo all that?"
ttfho continued. "He's tho fathor of
our country, the hoad of the nation's
army. I do like army men nnywny;
don't you? 800 how handsome they
look In tholr dark uniforms, light
trappings,- and swords dangling at
tholr Hldos. Any girl In Germany
who Is married to an officer countf
lierself forttinato."
To this I suggested they must be
-consldaroil superior man to bo hold
In such favor.
"Indeed thoy are," alio retorted.
"Thoy are oftentimes tho sons of
noblomon and bolong to some of the
ibost famlllos in Germany. You know
that a man to bo an ofllcor In our
Larmy must havo n splondld education
peak throo or four languages thor
oughly, nnd lio a romarkably well
.trained soltllor."
"Do thoy go for a good price?" I
iiuorled In a way that showed I ap
preciated tho story.
"I should think they did," came the
reply. "No otllcor can marry unless
ho has $36,000, He has to give a
bond of $16,000 so If anything l.appeuR
to him his family en 11 live In proper
style. ;IJut if alio would marry an
officer of superior rank she must do
' more thnn that A friend of mine was
married to an army man reoently;
her fijthor gave them $10,000 as her
wedding portion and paid his debts,
which amounted to $10,000 or more."
I hinted that $00,000 was a- good
deal to pay for the privilege of bolng
jin officer's wife.
"Ym," alio added, "hut he could
havo hurt many another at tho sama
price. Tho tltlo is ono wo all covet r

society. It must be considered worth

Thero aro no mon found anywhere
that aro moro spoilt than tho Austrian

confess that thoy make a flno showing
with tholr bright red coats, caps, and
light trousers. A woman in tho gay

year I had the pleasure of meeting a
eharmlng Hngllsh girl; sho declared
that she would live and dlo a spin

The Swiss women do not lionize
their officers as do the women in the
othor European countries. This is
partly because the standing army of
tho country is comparatlely small and
the rank is obtained through superior
ability rather than by prestige. In this,
small republic all classes of men are
called Into active sen-Ice evory two
years. In the ranks a road builder
and a lawyer are often seen standing
side by side; both have. the oppor
tunity of becoming offlcora.
Though in France the army has
much political power the women dc
not dote on army men nearly as
much as In England, Germany, and
Italy. A French girl of high social
standing much prefers being married
to a mombor of the Ecole des Beaux
, Arts or an Instructor In tho Sorbonne.

Meddlesome Matty.
Oh! how ono ugly trick hns spoiled
The swoetoot And tho best!
Matilda, though a pleasant child,
Ono ugly trick possessed,
Which, liko a cloud before the skies,
Hid nil hor bettor qualltlos.
Somotimos sho'd lift tho toa-pot lid,
To peep at what was in it;
Or tilt th,o kettle, If you did
But turn your back a minute.
In vain you told her noL to touch
Her trick of meddling grow so much.
Hor grand-mamma wont out one day,
And by mlilako, sho laid
Her spoctaoles and snuff-box gay,
Too near tho little mnld;
"Ah! well." thought sho. "I'll try
thorn on,
i-As soon as crand-mamma Is cone."
Forthwith sho plaood upon hor nose,
The glasses, large nnd wide;
And looking round, r.s I supposq,
The snuff box, too, she spied,
"O what a pretty box Is thlsl
I'll opon It," said Httla miss.
"I know that grand-mamma would say.
"Don't meddle with, It dear;"
But thon she's far enough away,
And no ono also Is near;
Besides what can there be amies',
In opcnluff such a box at this?" .
So thumb and finger vent to work,
To move the stubborn lid;
And, presently, n mighty Jerk
Tho mighty mlschlof did;
For all at onoo, ah! woful case;
Tho snuff came puffing In hor fnco.
Poor oyes, and nose, and mouth, and
A dismal sight presented;
And as tho snuff got further In,
Slncorely she reponted.
In vain she ran about for ease,
Sho could do nothlug olso but sneozo.
She dashed the speotaolos away,
To wlpo hor tingling eyes;
And as In twonty bits they lay,

It was decided at the monthly moot

open June, 1905, and close October
15, instead of opening May 1 and cIos
Ine November 1. The reason given
for the change is that tho weather.

change In tho date, as it was In ac
cordance with nn act of tho legis
lature and tho plans originally deemed
Mn. Flolschner said teday: "I oppoSq
the change in date on tho grounds
that tho stockholders havo subscribed
their money to tho entcrprlso ,on tho
basis that the fair was to bo open from
tho first of May until November l.
Tho shortening of tho time would not
be doing justice to them, or comply
ing with the terms of the original
agreement. Along the latter part or
October tho movement of eastern
tourists Is westward, to spend tho

The directors yosterday agreed to
ask tho state commission t'o turn to

of certain political and military ser

for sale at merely J6.000.000 a ban

aro two schemes by which It is pro
posed to work tho sulphur mlno; one
Is to tunnel Into the volcano at about
600 yards bolow tho crater, and to
remove the sulphur by a mechanical
agont In tlio form of a cablo convoyor
consisting of a ono-Inch steel cablo
carrying buckots 100 feet apart. These
will dip Into tho red-hot molten sul
phur and bring it out, tho buckets

crater directly down Into tho sulphur
lake, but it la questlonnblo If suffi

Inquiries appear to Justify thestate

of devil worship has existed in Paris
for 300 years, sometimes flourishing
