Proposals and Arguments.
I will confess that I attach much
more Importance to men's theoretical
arguments than to thlr practical pro
posals. I attach moro importance to
what is said than to what Is done;
what Is said generally lasts much
longer and has much more influence.
I can ImaRiue no chanse worse for
public life than that which some prigs
advocate, that debate should he cur
tailed. A man's argument a show what
ho Is really up to. Tntll you have
heard the defenso of a proposal you
do not really know even the proposal.
Thus, for instance, if a man says to
mo, "Taste this temperance drink." I
have morely doubt, slightly tinged with
distaste. Hut If he says, "Taste It, be
cause your wife would make a charm
ing widow," then I decide. I would

Institution, not by its immediate pro
posals for practice, but very much by

Why Foam Is White.
. "How white the foam Is," said the
pretty girl. In a voice muffled by the
sable stole drawn across her red
mouth. "Yet the sea Is green. Why,
then, Isn't the foam green?"
Tho young sophomore laughed In
"Gee, you are Ignorant!" he said.

A man who l;a3 recently come into
great prcmlnencc in his profession
says that when, tremblingly, he told
his father what he wanted to be, he
was told that a padded cell was the

to do that which God had forbid ! mi in
every tibfr of his being, and aj;ain:;t

Flower Dance3 for Children.
Fr?nch mothers have been showing
unwonted ingenuity this winter I::
dressing their darlings for the popular
flower dances which are now tho fash
Ion for Juvenile society and carry all
before them. Generally a number of
blooms are selected, and these are
called bouquet parties. The chnrm of
these parties is that the little people
are well suited to represent flowers
Parisian society ha i gone daft over
some of the designs and also the
beauty of same of the children. Their
dresses are floral, of course. Trails
of blooms are draped together from
the waists, the ends floating on the
airy skirts, or loose petals are scat
tered all over the material. Hut this
gives little idea of the chic and the
detail of the dress or of the human
floweret that carries it off. Nothing
has so hit th French taste as thrse
flower dances, and many of the elder
spectators have grown quite senti
mental about them.
Demand for Professional Mourner.

be hired In many European cities to
follow in the funeral procession and
look grief stricken is usually secured
through burial societies. These furn

They also weep to order. At homes
where self control is deemed a virtue
there Is no loud demonstration or sor
row. but where the real mourners are
emotional and give way to weeping
they are usually outdone by tho pro
fessionals. An undertaker In Dela
ware furnished mourners several times
recently, and the experiment was sc
successful, the stricken families were
so well pleased with the manner in
which the mourning parties had been
augmented, that the funeral director
has determined to enter the profes

SHREWD MR. DOOLY
HI HAS DISCOVERED A USE FOR
Jersey Farmer Has Device (Not Pat
ented) by Which He Makes Ani
mal Saw Wocd with Kcr
John Dooly, of Jacksonville. X. J.,
lids hit upon a plan that will hereafter
make "switchtail" cows bring a pre
iiilum. Instead of. as now, being un
marketable. Dooly is the owner of a
brindle cow that ho has been com
pelled for years to milk himself. His
hired men after tie first trial of milk
ing tho cow refused to remain longer
in Dooly's employ if compelled to put
up with the lushing of old brindle's
Dooly has tried for eight years to
get rid of the cow, but her fame has
spread over Essex and Morris coun
ties, and a purchaser for her could not
be found. She can snap her tail like
a whip, and the result is that Dooly's
face has not been minus several
pieces of sticking plaster for years.
Dooly said recently, "I have been
thinking for some time of using the
old brindle's tailpower to some good
effect, and at last, hit upon a plan,
which I have now put inlo effect with
such good results that. If any of tho
farmers around have any 'switchtail'
cow3 they want to dispose of they will
find a buyer at the Dooly farm.
"I cut a hole through the side of tho
woodshed," continued Dooly, "Just op
posite the circular saw, which wc turn
by hand to cut up wood In stove
lengths, and through this hole I put a
beam, which I balanced just like the
walking beam of a ferryboat on the
North river. On the Inside end I
fastened a stick leading down to the
wheel that turns the saw. On tho
outside I fastened a rope. I tried the
thing and it worked fine. Driving a
stake into the ground near by, I tied
the old brindlo to it, and, fastening
her tail to ihe beam rope, sat down to
milk. I called Pat Dugan, the farm
helper, and told him to feed wood to
the saw. He thought at first I was
crazy, but I ordered hlm to do as told.
"Tho next niinu'e the old brindla
gave her tall a switch to swipe me
across the face as usual, but she
couldn't. The rope held, and she could
only switch her tail so far. Then sho
tried In the other direction, with the
same result, liy this time old brindle
got pretty mad and she Jerked that
tall of hers back and forth ns quick
as lightning, and, say, that walking
beam kept going at such a rate that
you would a thought the circular saw
was being driven by a ten-horse power
"Il Just took 15 minutes to milk old
brindle, and in that time she cut up
two cords of wood Into stove lengths
No, sir, I wouldu't take J500 for that
old brindle cow now," concluded
