The following burlesque upon the cus
tom of publishing a "card of thands" is
from the penf Walt Mason: "Mr. Ab
solom W. Pedigree desires to thank his
friends and neighbors for their unremit
ting kindness in the dark hour of his be
reavement, following the loss of h"i3 be
loved wife. Special thanks arc tendered
to Kev. Jimalong for his exquisite prayer
at the grave, which was worthy of T. De
Witt Talmage; also to Mr. Bones, the un
dertaker, who conducted the funeral in
an admirable manner from beginning to
end; also to Mr. Allover the florist,
whose present of a beautiful floral wreath
served greatly to assuage the grief of a
sorrowing husband. And thanks are
given to the mourners, one and all.
Tneir conduct was thoroughly in keep
ing with the occasion, and it was due in
a large measure to them that the funeral
was made one of the social successes of
the season. The anguished widower
would also express his gratitude to Mr.
Phippen, the urbane and geniel proprie
tor of the marble yards, who. has agreed
to furnish a handsome niojument at re
duced rates. Adsalom W. Pediguke."

The IVddler'n 1'rlrka.
People who know that there in a corjM
ration oriliiianee forbiddin;; Kldler from
standing on or outside the curl of any of the
city Ktroets often wonder how the long lines
il linwlins hawker manure day after day,
without uaivitt molestation, to lxiher Uio
Ktreams of busy Mjli that approach tho
Brooklyn bridge alon I'urk row every even
ing. A similar state of things exists in Ful
ton btroet, and in a less degree on several
others leading to tho ferries. But if ono
watches these fellows for half an hour to
gether ho will see them suddenly, with ono
accord, cease their jabber, snatch the under
pinning from their little stands and trundle
them over to tho other side of tho street. Tho
cause of this is the approach of the august
olicernau on his boat. Haughtily ho comes
"long, twirling his little club with dexterous
jerk. Out of tho corner of his eye he ob
serves tho watchful row of peddlers over tho
way, but they ure not on his beat, and he
passes on over his half milo tour. It will bo
thirty minutes before ho conies back again,
and the hucksters know it. IJefore he is out
of sight the caravan has waded across tho
street once more, and the interrupted trado in
figs, oranges, bananas, candy, combs, collar
buttons and "pigs in clover" goes briskly on.
New York Tribune,
What Constitutes a Pre::-, Girt.
Form is most important. Coloring and a
fiuo skin will not make a Gne face strictly
beautiful unless tho features are regular and
tho head and face of perfect contour. The
eyes should beset horizontally, having neither
au upward nor downward inclination, not
too for apart nor too close together. The
nose should be placed at even distance be
tween the eyes, joining the forehead in a sub
tle curve, the lower portion straight, to em
phasize the surrounding curves of the cheeks
and lips. Tho "mouth like a Cupid's bow" is
Tho distance from the eyes to the tip of tho
nose, and from there to tho chin, should each
i)o one-fourth the length of tho foco; the
mouth should bo set at one-third the length of
nose and chin; the chin should taper slightly
to form an oval outline of face.
Nevertheless, with features which do not
come up to the ideal, a girl will be considered
"pretty" if she has smooth, clear skin, bright,
animated eyes and good teeth. St. Louis
Mistakes About Shakespeare.
A great many mistakes are made in some
of tho modern productions of Shakespearean
plays. A common one is an effort to attain
an imposing effect by means of numbers on
the stage. This is a great mistake. Take
the mob, for instance The tendency of an
audience is to look at tho mob and not at the
actor, who should be the central flgura The
same way with a ballet, or any other means
of crowding a lot of peoplo into viow of the
audience. A country dance, or something of
that sort, may lo conveniently worked in in
some of tho plays, but Shakespeare wrote for
actors and not for crowds, and the most suc
cessful productions of his plays are those
given by companies selected with an idea as
to tho abilities of each and every actor for
the part to bo presented. Shakespeare was
not at all a spectacular writer. St. Louis
Crete nnes of the cheap sort used for
decorating rooms turn out to be as arseni
caily poisonous as green wall paper. Out of
44 samples recently examined in London,
none were free from arsenic, 3 had only
faint traces of it, 21 had larger trao es, 11
were classed as very bad, and 9 were called
"distinctly dangerous." One specimen
yielded UJ- grains of white arsenic to the
square yard. The greens and blues were the
least harmful, while reds, browns and blacks
were heavily loaded with poison. Herald of
