WHAT WAS SHE TH1.MKING OFT
Actress, In Fear of Death, Regretted
She Had No Fan.
Mr. Anderson tells n good story of
Miss Elsworthy during one of his
American tours. In the midBt of
something approaching tho wreck of
tho ship In which tho company wni
traveling from a northern port to New
Orleans, Anderson, rushing to the sa
loon to help the ladles, found Mips Els
worthy with her maid, both In an
agony of fear which had cured their
seasickness. Tho perspiration wa
rolling down their fnces. 1 assured
thont there was no danger. "No dan

hysterically. "Why, I can see the sky

tire going down; the heat is suffocat
ing oh, denr, oh, dear; wo nrc going

Engine Instead of Farmhand.
Tho farm hand and tho farm horse
aro rapidly being supplanted on the
level tracts of the west by tho trac
lion engine. Tho farms aro large,
comprising sovcral hundred acres,
sometimes 1,000, nnd usually without
trees or stonos. Under these condl
tions tho engine can do any kind of
work. It is a compact llttlo mnchlne
run by gasoline, nnd not at all like
the ordlrnry attachment to a thr.u.i
Ing machine. It nun a "fang plow'
with five in a row, three or four liar
rows at a time, h ((.-.pled when de
sired to a sops nioi for thrashing
grain, runs tho' :,! fcr grinding cut
tlo feed, and hauls farm wagottH to
market laden with grain. In fnct,
thoro Is scarcely a thing about farm
work that tho little traction engine
will not do.

Growth of Postoffices.
I cxv things afford a hotter index ot
the pngress of this country in popula
tion, and also of tho clutuictor of the
increase, than statistics of the Post
olllco Department showing the number
of new postofflcess created during the
year. Thus it appears that In tho year
ended July l. 1902, there was a gain
of 29 1 postoffle In this country, in
volvingan Increase In tho SRlnry ac
counts of $5U,30(i. Accoptlng tho view
of tho venorahlo Edward Everett Hale
that every povtofneo ia equivalent to
a public school as an educational
njH'wy, these figures have a still
iarrtr meaning and significance.

SLAVES OF FURNITURE.
Tin- lioniilt of "Women lie Inn Afriilil
of IIcetloM ii utl Mice.
If man is the hlave of n dog, woman
Is the slave of furniture. If women
only knew how much more graceful
und the only way is to appeal to their
vnnlty they would be reclining on the
Hour, they would never Kit up on chairs
or round a table. That this is funda
mentally true is proved by the fact
that thoy tire never no happy as at a
picnic, whore there ate no chairs nnd
tables. 1 really believe that tho craze
for putting everything on something
above the floor by which I nieiin ta
bles, sideboards, etcgrew from the
custom of sleeping in ugly, cumber
some and dirt collecting beds instead of
on the floor. Of course the reason why
women do not sleep on the floods be
cause they are afraid of beetles and
mice nnd other harmless things. Wom
en, therefore, having invented tho bed,
invented the table to stand by it, nnd
thus hpread the habit of putting every
thing above the level of the floor.
WomnnV original sin of being afraid
of black beetles and mice costs man
more than all the royalty, armies, na
vies, pension lists, prisons, poverty,
schooling, national debts nnd wars of
I am sure 1 am not putting It too high
when I say that the average cost of fur
niture per house ts $1,000, and if the
world would only ngreo not to cumber
Us rooms with beds nnd tables, side
hoards. cablnetR and chairs our ground
lenin word ' .:! -M t.-tlf w'ctt they
are, and th. ueivt.i!ni of our i-itles
would come down ptoportlnnnteiy.
