The Woltea Junt Laughed.
Sitting in Thedo Wyniau's store, a
little grouf of villagers in Sebec, Me.,
talked of wolves, now seldom seen iu
Maine, but which half a century ago
were much in evidence. William Lyford
told the story of Seth Brown's chase of
two wolves on enowshoes.
"You know Seth, " ho said. "One of
the smartest and handiest men in his
day that ever cut timber trees or drove
the Penobscot. Up in the liipogenus re
gion one February he was out prospect
ing for timber tracts. The snow was
deep, with a light crust, just strong
enough to hold up a man on snowshoes.
Coming upon a little rise of laud in a
timber swamp one day, ho saw two
wolves a little way ahead of him. The
crust would not bear them, and they
could only wallow along in the enow.
Seth would tackle anything that ever
ranged the woods. He bad no gun, but
he set out after the wolves with his ax.
What did those wolves do but circle
round until they got Lack upon Seth's
tracks. You know how in light enow
the steps of a man in snowshoes will
pack down the enow. Once the wolves
got to Seth's tracks the slotes(suowsho8
prints) held them up, and they just ran
on them in a circle till he gave up the
chase. He was so near that he could al
most have thrown his ax to them, and
be couldn't get a 6tep nearer. Seth said
the wolves eat on their haunches and
laughed at bim when he had to give up
and start along." New York Sun.
Too Tonne to Talk So.
We have learned to expect it from
many of the married women and from
some of the bachelor maids. But out of
the lips of a mere lassie, gently reared,
a girl still living at home with ber
mother, skepticism gives one a shock,
declares a writer iii the New York Press.
A woman of fashion in a checked
dress and a great dahlia colored hat, ac
companied by a man in modish gar
ments, was tripping along Fifth avenue.
She was chatting with marked anima
tion and he was laughing flatteringly.
The attention of the passersby was at
tracted by the happy couple.
Behind the pair chanced to walk a
lassie the one yet living at home with
mamma and an older woman, a friend
of mamma. The lassie spied the mon
daine in checks and dahlia velvet on
ahead and puckered her brow, saying:
"Oh, I know that woman have seen
her often at Newport. She is dreadful
rich. Now, I remember. She is Mrs.
The friend of mamma was interested.
She asked :
"And is the attentive man with Mrs.
Blankly her husband?"
The lassie shrugged her shoulders and
6corned the very idea.
"Ridiculous," she replied. "You
dear, old fashioned thing, don't you
know that women's husbands never
laugh in that good tempered way when
they are with their wives."
The Imitative Japanese.
A good story is told by St. Barbe cf
theimitativenessof the Japanese, which
is easily credible, for was it not a Jap
anese who when he was told to make a
coat to pattern the old one being sent
so faithfully did he carry out the or
der that a rent and darn in one of the
tails was carefully executed in the new
"At a certain reception we were ask
ed in morning dress, but knowing peo
ple were their crush theater hats. When
we got down to the gunroom, which
was devoted to gentlemen's cloaks, the
gentleman immediately before me took
oft his theater hat, crushed it against hie
breastbone, wrapped it up in his dust
cloak and handed it to the Japanese in
"I took off my hat and dust cloak and
handed them. To my horror the Jap
took hold of my hat by the brim and
crushed it against his breastbone as he
had seen my predecessor do. Unfortu
nately that gentleman's hat would not
work at first, and he had to use a great
deal of force before the springs would
fold down. The Japanese therefore saw
nothing in my hat's unwillingness to
work, but just crushed it and folded my
cloak round it.
"When I expostulated, he smiled and
presented me with a paper flower I
suppose as a peace offering. '
A Phillips Crooks Anecdote.
At the dinner given in his honor in
Philadelphia Dr. McVickar, the bishop
coadjutor cf Rhode Island, told this
characteristic anecdote of the late Phil
lips Brooks: "I remember a few years
ago I was traveling with one of the
grandest bishops and one of the grand
est men of the century. I was saunter
ing with bim from church in Lucerne,
in Switzerland, and he said something
so boyish and fresh, just as he was ever
wont to do. I stopped and looked at him
and said, 'Brooks, it seems so strange
that you should be a bishop. ' He looked
at me with almost a startled expression,
and he said, 'McVickar. it seems so
strange to me that sometimes, when I
am putting on my clothes, I have to
stop and laugh. It was just he fresh
ness of that man which always kept
him young, and which, I am sure, you
will understand as I give it, for I ven
ture to say there has never been such a
bishop in our orlany other church."
Mra Keeley, the veteran English ac
tress, tells an anecdote of a young ac
tress who in the play is a boy. She is
taken before a judge, who asks sternly,
"Now, where are your accomplices?"
And the young actress, by a happy
thought, improved on the author and
answered in artless tone: "I don't wear
any. They keep up without.

Jur-t as well bo out of tho world as
to bo out of fashion is an old and trito
saying. It applies aptly in many
tilings but in nothing quite so apt as
regards one's clothing. One cannot
appear well, feel comfortable and look
dressy with a suit of clothes on which
lite very much like a gunny suck over
a fence post. A suit or troupers m&dc
by a tailor is a thing of beauty and ex
