From a leading tiadoHiier I oxlrnettlio
following bit of wUlom: "No parent who has

of the printing IhuIiicm not one hoy In u linn

BILL NYE AND MRS. LANQTRY.
A Few Itriiinilts About Ills lllnnnr with
thn .lersejr I.lly.
It was my blessed privilege, last summer nt
Long Brunch, In company with several other
txsiplo prominent In art mid literature, to
lunch with Mrs. Ltngtry, mid nt lolsum to
converse wlih her In low, passloimlo ncivnbi
nbout her future nml hor past. I Imd not In
tended to make tho delightful chat public nt
llrst, for neither of us cam to l brought
prominently before tho public, shrinking n
wo do from publicity of nil kinds mid only
raring to do right whiin keeping lu the back
ground ns much as ikmrIKo, But tho general
Interest felt lii Mrs. 1iugtry lends me to
burst through these restraints,
Mrs. I.nngtry, on tho day I iotik of, woro
u new dress of lavender berngo trimmed with
n different color around tho bottom, Sho woro
u sort of n brown straw turban, mid hor hair
was dono up In n hnrd knot nt the back of hor
head. Her hntr Is a deep brown In color and
quite nice to look ut. Sho has a calm, honest
eye, nnd behaved like n iorfect lady nil thn
lime. 1 sat on her right nt table, also on tlio
rdgo of her dress by mistake. When wo rose
from tho tnblo she rose before I did, for Iliad
lost my place on thn menu, gently drifting
lack to Ihisoui of lamb with mint doings onto
ft, u dish of which I am very fond nnd one
which wo rarely get nt homo. I was eating
some moiii of this when the rest Imd reached
the doxology, nnd I did not notion that Mrs.
K'tiigtry was trying to rise. But she kept
her temper like n erfecl lady, walling cheer
fully until I had llmihcd my uionl mid put a
few rnlilus hi my pocket to oat on my way
homo. Then she Iwggcd my pardon, mid
would I please tako my chair off hor dress.
Why of courso I would. For, as a matter of
fact, it wns my fault.
I was dressed plainly in a quiet yollow nml
black blazer, with n Il.iuiiel shirt of soma in
flamed tint, caught together nt the throat
witli n largo knot of blue kII:ii dot silk. I
woro no suscmlcrs, but held my knicker
bockers in place by moans of n linen nnd
whitosllkstomneherorcluch, which aUrac'tnl
much attention from one nml nil.
That is ono thing I like nbout ma lean
dress gay and frlvohuiH, or 1 can Ikj grnvo
