Theatrical Advance Agent Had Neat
Scheme That Brought Him
The vnluo of the ability to know
.'aces end the names that go with them
8 a recognizable asset among sales
lien and all people who have dealings
Ith a large number of persons. An
idvance agent of a theatrical concern,
Sliding that he was not gtfted that
way, hit upon a new schenie.ffor help
ing matters along. Immediately after
leaving a town he card-Indexed very
man with whom he came in contact
reporters, hotel men, managers and
merchants. He wrote a short descrip
tion of their facial appearance, to
gether with some Incident which oc
curred while he was with them. The
next year, while on the train, he would
study the cards relating to the people
of tho next town he was to visit. The
result was that whenever he met a
man he saw tho year before he would
say something like this:
"Why, hello, Jackson'! The last time
I saw you we were still laughing over
that fellow who slipped on the lee with
a pall of milk In his hands. I have
thought of It a thousand times since."
A raise In salary greeted the ad
vance nent the next year, for he had
every town his way long before the
show reached It.
A Peculiar Wish.
Young Chap Blame the luck! My

for forging a check for 10,000 marks.
If he Is found guilty, then I cannot
many his daughter; and If he is Inno
cent, then I get nothing by way of a
dowry. My only hope Is that he will
be set free and also that he Is not

Boots and Gloves. !
In a lvtvnt divorce case In Scotland
It was testified that a lady, searching j
her maid's trunks, found 200 pairs of
her own old gfoves therein.
"Abn ad." said a dealer, amnt this
happeiiini:. "it Isn't unusual for a wom
an of fashion to have 200 pahs ol
gloves. At tho sale of the ducluss of
Somerset's things, over 2.000 pairs, all
as good a new, were put up.
"You see, gloves are cheaper abroad
Over there you'll pay a dollar for an
article l hat would cost you $2.50 here
Put, aside from that, foreign women
Incline to go in more for gloves ami
boots, too than we do. Tho foreign
woman is apt to he better gloved and
booted than her American tister."

A ynn.ig woman in New York with
a purso long enough to satisfy her
craving for artistic expression In hei

stairs nut of carts used by Sicilian
peasants. These carts, as every globe
trotter knows, are painted In the most
vivid colors, and frequently show fine
examples of wood Cdrvlng. The hall

and tnll'.oards of carts, and the carv

We have more "time'' than we really
need, so propose to divide it with our readers.
We still have on hand nineteen clocks like the
illustration above. These little time keepers
stand about 9 1-2 inches high, are handsomely
finished in oxidized copper, are fitted with
alarms, and are excellent timekeepers in
every respect. If you want one renew your
subscription for a year in advance and send
us one new subscriber. Or, if preferable, re
new your own subscription and pay 50 cents
for the clock. This clock would sell regularly
for $1.50 or $1.75. Order early as only a few
