Among other who were engaKed In wait

IIu wan almost as uneasy an the penclii

young man's ear, so to speak. At leant he
heard something that appeared to him to
be the distant nimble of car wheels. Au

his countenance. The sn.ll of waiting wits
almost over. The noise of the heavy iron
wheels increased. Yes; and lliere was some
thing added a moment later that sounded
like the shriek of a shrill whistle in the dis
tance. The young man with the failed carnation
gathered himself together He buttoned
his coat, after having enveloped his seek
in a silk muffler, put his soft hat on straight
and liegan to put on his gloves. The sound
of the approaching train grew louder and
louder The young man thought it was al
most there and suddenly made a dive for
the gate, satchel in hand. The doorman
grabbed htm just as he was going out.
"Where you goiu" he bellowed, irritated
at having been awakened from a dream
that he had been promoted to station mas
"To the train." nervously replied the
"What train!'" was the sarcastic query
"Why why the one that's just coming

"Go ofi; lluy ain't no train cumin in.

He had aliout liuislied tuning the piano
when he looked up and said
"Your instrument was in an awful con
dit ion. You ought to have sent for me
"It was tuned only three mouths ago.''
"Then the man who did itcertainly didn't
know his business."
"No, ma'am. He had better be working
on the railroad than tuning pianos. Why.
my dear niudam, a delicate instrument like
the piano needs fingers equally delicate to
handle it, combined with an ear of unerring
accuracy. The individual who attempted
to tune this instrument last evidently pos
teased neither of these, lu fact I am free
to say that he did it more harm than good.'
"Indeed he did. May I ask who It v
who ho abused your poor instrument?'
"It waa you yourself.''
"Madam, you are wrong; I never tuned a
piano in this house before."
"Probably not, but you tuned that in
strumeut nevertheless, or made a botcb ol
it tn attempting to do so. It belongs to
Mrs. Gazzam, who sent it here while she is
out of the city. She told me you alway
tuned it and to send for you wheu"

with General John Tyler, the wm

succeeded to the presidency, he c in
tituled IVesident Harrison's euhiiiet

A SugK"'""" For Dancing Tartlet.
The wits of hostesses are liecoining
more strained than ever in finding
gentleman capable of dancing to utr
tend their parties. Ladies nimble
and graceful are in abundance, but
on the part of men the art of danc
ing seems to lie a vanishing quanti
ty. A lady writes suggesting the or
ganization of an agency similar to
those existing in Paris and Berlin,
where suitable dancing men could
lie hired for the occasion. The
hired guests would apjiear at the
time appointed armed with guaran
tees of res'iectability and fitness for
their occupation, lie allotted to their
duties for the evening nnd leave at a
proper hour, conscious of having
done a good night s work and honest
ly earned a day's pay. Imagine how
half a down to a dozen dancing men
would brighten up u languishing

item on the programme nnd to give
not more than three dances to any
young lady, they would infuse a tre
mendous amount of spirit into the

That apprehension of catching epi
demic diseases assists in spreading
them is an old doctrine, in support of
which many fads might be cited, and
it is only reasonable to supjioso that
where the reception of contagion is
assisted hy depression of the system
alarm would have that effect. It is,
however, the common e.X'icncnee of
medical men that especially in sur
gical cases sanguine have a great ad
vantage over desindent patients,
and that to abandon the expectation
of recovery is aliout the worst thing
which anybody anxious for recovery
Sir Astley Coojier indeed was al
ways reluctant to perform an opera
tion where the subject to be submit
ted to it was apprehensive of a fatal
result. When patients had made up
their minds that they would not re
cover, they seemed to him to lose
their recuperative power. Loudon

FEMININE GUESTS AT HOTELS.

abla Things They Don't On.
A woman nt a hotel is like a live
wire on a frolic or a runaway horse
at a funeral. She can give and coun
termand more orders in 15 minutes
after her trunks come up than a
man could think of in a week. She
writes half a dozen letters a day,
using tluve or four sheets of the hotel
paper in each one, and calls up a bell
boy to mail each one separately. She

and teaches him the philosophy of

just when the o'clock train goes
out and what tii'e the 7 o'clock lim

home reeling m after the play to find
out who sh'.! is or where she is at
any way. She will tack up photo
graphs on the wall, but she doesn't
go to bed with her boots on.
She expects the chambermaid to
eleau her gowns and pack her trunks,
but she doesn't set the sheets on firo
smoking iu lied or break the mirrors
with her umbrella and play football
with the furniture, even iu her fun
niest moods. She wants no end of
extra towels, but sho doesn't jMtlish
her hoots with them. Of course sho
doesn't cat as much or drink as
much or spend as much money as a

She wants to live all over the house,
and why not J A pretty woman read
ing in a parlor, or waiting on a hall
seat or scribbling letters in her queer
angular hand at the writing table is
ever 60 much more interesting an
attraction than a barrel of "brico
break," a (totted palm or a jardiniere
full of flowers. Ever since the days
of the garden eviction men have fol
lowed where women have led, and
the hotel where women most do con
gregate is sure to have a generous
following of men. Indeed it is a
question if a pretty woman that will
sit around in a stained glass attitude
and a handsome gown ought not to
have special rates if she isu't paid a
There is one thing a woman will do
every time and that is insist that
there is something wrong aliout her

but, bless her heart, she always pays.
Sunshine isn't surer in June than a
woman's honesty. She uever is so
'dead broke" at the end of the trip
that she has to pawn her things or
give security on her trunks. And if
you do succeed in pleasing her she
will tell every one from here to the
Golden Gate that your hotel is the
only decent place in town. A drum
