monogram and crest. The first he made

and he never remembered to have seen

And was that all?

Like a true detective Jack examined

said that tho skill might prove inconven

did it originate?"
"Sir Lewis Mallaby."
"Please point him out to me."
He was shown a grave, scowling face
upon the right of the hostess a face like
a mask, the surface rough and wrinkled,
through which tho eyes shone with a
baleful light, like corpse candles in a
Jack let his companion chatter on. It
was his habit to get all the information
possible about any company in which he
found himself, for his own purpose us a
clairvoyant, and when Mrs,' Sitweil
flagged he plied her with artless ques
tions, and led her on from one person to
another, making mental notes to serve
lum hereafter. It is thus by careful and
laborious preparations that 'many of the
strange and seemingly mysterious feats
of the clairvoyant conjuror aro in
formed. When tho whole party were assembled
in tho drawing room after dinner a
chorus of voices, headed by hat pf the
hostess, summoned Jack to his work.
There appeared to le only one dissen

did not trouble himself to, back up the
invitation, but when the performance
was actually begun was at no pains to
conceal his contempt and cligust.

rings into quartern loaves, did all man

never a smile on Sir Lewis' face; ho
sneered unmistakably. Finally, with an
ostentation tliat savored of rudeness, he
took out his watch, a great gold repeater ,
looked at it, and unmistakably yawned.

eyes, lie stared intently into bir Lewis
Mallaby's face pnd almost as quick v
aroppea them again,
"This is far too valuable," he said cour
teously, "too much of a treasure, to be
risked in any conjuring trick. An ordi

not a worn or art like this.
And he handed it back to Sir Lewis,
who received it with ill concealed satis
faction. Ho was as' much, pleased, prob
ably, at Jack's expression of possible
failure in the proposed trick as at the re
covery pf his property,
Another watch, however, was nounded
into a jelly and brought; put whole from
a cabinet in an adjoining room.
"Qh, but it is too preposterous," Sir
Lewis Mallaby was heard to say, quite
angruy. ino continued applause pro

for 100.
There was muc h applause at this harm

threatened at one stage to lead to alter

Newbiggiu was not s.itislied.
"As you have dared me to do mv

whero the other half is to be found."
"So much the U tter for me," said the
baronet, with an effort to apiear humor

say. Sir Lewis?"
Sir Lewis nodded indifferently.

Lewis in horror.

London) advanced in a still smaller pro
portion, and it will be seen that England,
excluding all its big towns, exhibits a
still feebler advance.
But note this point" about London: its
limits increase. 'If we had a series of

what London was when the century be

by the mass of those 958,803 who consti

Mr. Astor'a Expensive Yacht.
Witliin a stone's throw of a South

ner iot aoout inree montns in the year;
tho other nine months she lies idle. The
expense of running this leviathan toy is
$o,000 per month. By the necessary ex
pense is meant the cost of fuel and the
wages and keep of her crew. What Mr.
Astor spends in entertainments, etc., on
board, of course nobody knows but him
The expense, therefore, of keening tho
Nourmahal for a year, outsido of her
owner's personal expenditures, is: Interest
on money invested, 18,000; expenses for
i injo tiio ij m commission, $l,000; re
pairs, etc., each spring, about $5,000;
total, $41,000. From these figures it
would be easy to estimate how much the
yacht would cost to keep should she be
iti commission the year round. Aloiit
$100,000 a year wpuld just ahout cover it.

Dressing; the Hair lu Jupun.
Tlie manner of wearing the hair in
Japan is so elaborate tliat a Japanese
woman cannot do up her own hair, but
is obliged to go to one of these establish
ments. It is quite interesting to watc h
this operation. The worna seats herself
on the lloor before a round mirror made
of polished metal, and the hair dresser
sets to work. It is really quite a formid
able affair, as tho woman is apt to be
very critical and insists on each hair be
ing arranged just so. The whole ar
rangement may be descrilied as a kind
of large bow knot, and liecswax enters
largely into the material used for the
dressing. This has tho effect of makints
the hair very stiff and shiny. The
reason that the peculiar pillow is so much
used is jso that the hair may not be dis
turbed while asleep.
