NEWEST USE FOR NAIL FILE.
Guest at Philadelphia Dinner at First
Caused Great Consternation
by His Action.
A Philadelphia doctor has discov
ered a brand new use for a nail file
which Is lib fly to become much more
promim nt than the old use. A short
time ago this doctor was a guest at a
dinner in one of Philadelphia's most
exclusive houses. When the last
course had been served and the cigars
were being passed the doctor reached
down into his trousers and extruded
a penknife. Slowly he opened n blade.
Kvcrybody gasped. Could It bo that
Dr. would so far forget himself
as to manicure his nails at the table?
All watched with bated breath. Slowly
the doctor reached out and secured a
match which was near his place. Then
he deliberately struck his match on
the rough part of the nail file and lit
his cigar. The suspense was over and
the doctor had not commi'teil thn
frightful breach of etiquette which his
associates had feared. Now the cus
tom Is spreading fast, for It Is less ef
fort than It is to stand on one leg to
strike the match on one's shoe, and
decidedly more elegant than the time
honored method of striking it on one's

First Fare on the Comet.

claimed to have been the first to pay
passage money on hoard the first pas
senger steamer in Europe the hl

was from the llroomlelaw to Dnlmulr

HAVE FROFER SELF-RESPECT.
One cf the Greatest Mistakes Possible
to Make Is That of Holding
Oneself Too Cheap.
Do not hold youi si If too cheap. If
you do not think well of yourself oth
ers are not likely t0 think much of
you. You me usually taken at your
own value. py this Is not meant a
foolish self ci iiccit, but a proper self
respect. Have a regard for the esteem of
those whose opinion Is worth having.
No one can be admired by all. lb'
who litis no enemies may doubt wheth
er he has real friends. Try to win
the rigaul of the good and the wise;
If the foolish take offense pass It by.
Think too well of yourself to stoop
to anything coarse, mean or untrue.
However humble your station in life
may be, you may think yourself wor
thy only of that which Is good and
true. To he genuine puts you on n
high level. Whatever your purse, you
may be rich In chantcter. Think your
self worthy of the best to which you
can attain. Aim for the highest you
see, and should you fail to reach It.
you will slill be higher than If your
aim had been low.
