"I wouldn't wear oim of them If It wore to Ik) given to mo. It Is sure to bring lintl luck." And tliu poor follow put on n lugubrious look that denoted hi' was In earnest, and hu shook Ills bend In 11 manner that plainly wild he know of 11 great many Hoplo who hnd lind tulsfoi tunes tlmt were traceable directly to tho wearing of an opul, Thii iridlseont stone Ih 11 trcutitlful Ki'iu, mid tho coplu of an tiquity prized it very highly, ltoinun ilumos considered their opuls lit among their pinuil ost possessions, mid 11 ltoinun senator niiined Nonius had onu of these stones that was var imikly valued at from a half million ilollais to a million and a quarter. When Cleopatra pledged Mark Antony In a draught of vine gar in which 11 iieiirl of great value hail been dissolved ho tiled to buy tho opal of Nonius to present It to the Egyptian beauty but fail ed to got it. Among tho Auntrlan luierlal Jewels is an opal for which :((X),(HHJ has lieen rufiiMil. This beautiful Rem leinalned in fa vor up tliiuiiKli tho mlddlu at;is. What, then, has made It tho symbol of ill luck? It has lieun attributed to the Huslans. who re paid It as tho embodiment of thu "evil eje" mid all manner of misfortune. They no w fnrnsto think that bad luck will follow any trmiMictioii btfRUii on 11 day on which they have, wen nn opal. Walter Scott probably Is responsible, for much of thu antipathy tow ards this stone. In onu of his novels lie as . cribes all manner of bad luck to thu opal. Hut 11 jeweler gives a more, piosaic explaua tloii of Komu of thu unpopularity of tho opal. It Is 11 well known fact tlmt opals are lost oftener than most any other Mone used in rings or pins, and frequently In a mysterious and unaccountable manner. Tho opal lias thopocullailty ofenlaiglni; slightly when heated. Thu warmth fiom n h.tm)Ii'h hand will nmko It uull slightly, and of courco the betting lsenlnreed. Home tliuu when tho opal Is taken olf thu baud It becomes cool and re turns to lt original size, when It may diop out of thu setting. Another thing against opals Is tho fact that they are easily bioken and consequently are not a desuablo in vestment. Hut what is Mipcrstition but a remnant of barbarism and 1111 evidence of Ignorance? nii'iyeta great many otherwise intelligent )M.splo seem to pride themselves on a liellef in silly superstitions. They try to catch 11 llrht glimpse of tho new moon over the well, I decline, I do not recall whether It Is tho right or tho left shoulder that Is supposed to bring good luck. And they do or retrain from doing a great many other equally child ish things because they nro siiier8tltlouK. It Is not to Imj wondered at that in tho in fancy of tho raco man thought tho elo nientsof nature were good and evil spirits contending for tho miiHtery. He regarded tho sun as a spirit of weal and woi1iIhmI It us the god of good. Night brought the dread of death and to his simple mind it was tho tplrltof ovll having its Inning In tho game. Hut why MioumI tho poplo of todny, who have the light of reason and science, put themselves on a piano ith tho savages of burbaric times and tho heathen c,.- lenlght ed clime! Imi't it a. confession or ignoi mice, an tiilmlMioii of mnutnl weakliest I Wouldn't It bo better to cenceol that fault as we try to cover up other Uufects, lather than uct as though we weicpioudvf it'!

Hpeaklngof bright girls reminds 11m of one wlw visited in Omaha some timo ago. HJiu wiisu Ik'Ho in her own city, a U-utity and a young lady of 111010 than ordinary accom plishments. Shu was introduced to Omalut society uuiler tho luipplist auspices, and won 11 lwst of udmlieis. Among thfso was Mimj Hiirkulow perhaps jou know him. He was telliiig once about a man not quite familiar with the forms of ultra-fashionable life who received an invitation with the loiter II S. V. 1'. in one corner. As it happened ho had to send regrets, and In tho corner l his emd hu wrote "I), H. 0. C." Mosu explained tli.it thou initials mount "Damn mm ryc.in't come." Kmnu weeks later, after tho young lady had returned homo, Mr. Iliiikalow t-eul hern "bid" to some nll'iilr in Oinnhii that was to bu iaitlculnrly swell. Tho fair belle stcpxi! Into the teleguiph olllcu and wiitsl buck; "I), H. V. C." simply that ami nothing 111010. Well, tliat was enough to tickle must ii'iy man, mid Moso Haikalowhad to show It all over town. In fancy I see miiiiu good mother in Isinel look up from her knitting with dlMippiovnl iH'iiming from both eyes. Hut whole's tint harm) Kveu tho word "damn" is not profan ity mid us for 11 little initial letter wilttcn down on piper, carried by eleclilciiy and ic wrltten wny, w hero's tho harm? Isn't this uureaboiiiiblo ri'piet.sion of tho bubbling spirit of youth one gioul chumi of tho odiiais liess of the ruhtinlnt in many homes tlmt makes many of its victims go to ejcticiucs When they get a little frecdoml Tuko iMiiis- tor' tons, for ixiimpto. Wu have miiiio In" liiucolu and well, on second thought, let u not lie t(H) personal. V Apropos young men, wild and otherwise, what kind does the aveiago girl ndmlrof Judged by her actions, her standard Is not very encouraging to young fellows wlios-) merit runs to quality in brains rut her than quantity In pants. Hut theixi are other gli Is whoaro alxivti tho average and CotlltlKli readers shall have tho licncllt of the opinion of onu who no doubt voices the sentiment of an 111 my of fair and sensible damsels. "Kvery young man I know is either a end or 11 fool," she said, "lie either wants to talk base ball and slugging matches, or cWn Uois principally concerned about his clothus and in trouble for fear ho won't havu the lat est thing in collars or tho newest pattern in tiousers. I think they havu brains and In telligence hidden somowheto about their pel sons, or elso they couldn't succeed in IiusIuosm as they do, but they don't seem to think It necessary to lot the girls know they have any. Now, 1 don't know among all tho young men of my acquaintances one who is as nice as my father. He is always polite, and ho Is as courteous to his daughter iih ho Is to any one w horn he meets in so-loty . 1 don't see. young men with tho grace ol manner that my fath er has. It is fashionable to bo blaso and In ililferent and rude, and all young moil will lie In the fashion. Thoyaio not helpful and concerned tor your comfort. Not that ono wants a man Ixithcringhcr all thu time tosisj if hu doesn't want, this and if hu can't give her tlmt that's; stupid and fus'y. Hut there is u way or taking cam of a body without any fuss, a real honest anticipation ot one's wants, all so quietly done that you don't know It's being done just tho way my fath er does things. I can't describe It, but it's nice, just 114 all indescribably good things are, and you know It after you havo oneo boon treated in such considerate fashion. Sol don't like thu young man of today." Another society liolle in discussing tills matter said, with some warmth: "How can wu girls help ounclvcsl M.iny of the most dosh able young men put In their evening-, at the club or heaven knows w hero, and leave thu Held to tho sottglily kind of fellows or thu pushy ones who want to got Into society and nro received lieciiuso they will miiku themselves useful as partners. And then thu critical men surer at us about our choice, when there Is no choice about it. Tho truth Is men aro getting too indolent for society. They pssumo to lit boiel and havo no thought for our ploasuio. So, you see, I think selfishness Is at tho bottom of it all. If It pleases mo, 1 will: If It doesn't well lot It go." Now, young man, you havu u chance to see jourself as others see you.

Monday night at the Hroadway Theatre, New York, Mr Lawrence ll.iirett presented "Oaiielon.'' The big playhouse held a large and decidedly representative audience, gutheied to In rtho tragedian who has done more for tho American stune than any other actor. Mr. llanett received a most enthusiastic greeting and during the per formance was called before the curtain again and again. Hu mado it success of very largo proK)rtioiis and a triumph that will not soon be forgotten by those who saw the first pie seiitutiou in tho metroM)lls of Mr. Young's pictuicsquu and poetlo tragedy.
