Ono of tlio most annoying (hint; about swans 1a Hint they live to an extremely great nge, und t lint It Is impossible for the ordinary observer to guess what their ycurs may bo. President Giover Cleveland once had an amusing experience with some swans, according to a writer In the American Magazine, llo had been In tho south, shooting, nnd brought home a number of wild swans, ono of which ho sent to each member of his cabi net and to some other associates. "All tho boys." said Mr. Cleveland, thanked nio politely for having re membered them, but none of them seemed to. have much to say how they enjoyed tho birds. "Carllslo, I found, had his cooked on a night when he was dining out. Another, when I asked hliu, Bald he hoped I wouldn't mind, but he had sent his home to his old mother. Thur ber didn't mention his bird at all for two days. Finally I asked him about It. "Thurber, did you get that swan all right?' "'Yes, sir, oh, yes, I got the swan all right, thank you,' and ho bent over - his desk and seemed very busy. " 'Fine bird,' I snld. '"Yes, sir, fine bird,' and he went on working. '"Knjoy eating him, Thurber?' "IIo waited a minute, and then he said, 'Well, sir, I guess they didn't cook him right at my house. They only cooked him two days, and be went on working without cracking a smile." A "Mite." Tho dlncultlefl experienced by our forefathers In trying to reckon money In very small proportions uppeur in the various values given to a "mito" in the sixteenth and seventeenth cen tury books of commercial arithmetic. The original "mite" seems to have been a third of a Flemish penny, but the use of the word for the widow':? coin of tho New Testament made Its regular English meaning half a farth ing, and some old peoplo may remem ber applying the namo to the short lived nineteenth century coins of that value. In those old arithmetic book? "mite" stands for various values not represented by actual coins, but ob viously used In reckoning. A work of Kofi makes It one-twelfth of a pen ny, two sixteenth century books one sixth of a farthing, and In 1C71 Jenke's arithmetic made It as little as one sixty-fourth of a penny. The Jeweler's Diagnosis. "Can you tell mo what'B the matter with this watch?" Inquired the Aver age Looking Man anxiously. The jeweler stuck a dice box in his eye and glanced at the Instrument's Innards. Then he looked up. "You find It necessary to shake t real hard every now and then to start it going, don't you?" he Inquired. "That's right." "And you find that it gets dusty, don't you Tcrhaps you don't blow hard enough on tho works?" "Oh, yes, I do every day." "Well, well! Rut are you careful to start the balance wheel going with a toothpick every hour or two?" "Yes, I do that, too." "And in spite of all your precau tions. It needs about live dollars' worth of repairs. It's very strange." For the jeweler possessed u dry an 1 sarcastic wit. A Bear Just Misses Revenge. Herman Russell, a fanner of Hud son township, had n thrilling escape from a den of bears the oilier day, says a Royne City (Mich.) dispatch to the Chicago Inter Ocean. 'While, driving along the road his watchdog scouted a cub and Herman, seeing the little fellow, decided that it would make a good pet. He accordingly wt .i over to the cub, but when he attempted to pick him up he was confronted by a big mother bear, who put up light. Her man took to the first tree, which wis a small sapling. Mrs. Hruln sized up the situation. then deliberately gnawed the sapling until It broke. Russell was saved by falling Into the branches of a larger tree. Many Women Are Illiterate.

A tilo matting basket fills these re quirements to the letter. Tilo mat ting is a Japanese material made from shavings of the fir tree. It i3 extreme ly light weighty though strong, and the texture Is ..most, artistic. The weave is very attractive, and well suited to basketry. It is 30 inches wide and U sold at CO cents a yard. One half yard Is required for the basket and cover. The other materials need ed nre one-quarter pound natural col or ratlla, nt rive rents, and ono quar ter pound each of black, old rose nnd green raffia, at tr cents. The dyed ratlia is CO cents a pound. A square of medium heavy pasteboard may be pur chased for five cents, nnd n package of raflla needles for ten cents. The pattern of one side of the hex agonal basket Is given 6x5 inches. When the 6lx sides are cut out of the matting stitch the edge nil around on the sewing machine or with n dose back stitch to keep the edge firm. Six more sides are to be cut from tho pasteboard, then marked off according to tho Inside line on the pattern. The center of the pasteboard squares nre cut out, leaving a frame for the e:lgo of tho matting. This frame is placed around the edge of the matting, basted on, and then overstlfched with the natural color rnlRn. The sketch at the right of the basket shows the process clearly. - The next step is to make the bot tom and cover of the basket, each to DAINTIEST OF DAINTY ODORS Lavish Use of Violet Recommended by. One Girl Who Is Satisfied with the Result. So many girls ask whnt Is that In describably dainty odor which others of their sex shed around them nowa days. It's not a positive perfume, only just tho most refining sweetness imag inable. It Is violet, simple violet, but violet in everything, perfume, Ratchets, perfumed flannels for tacking in dress linings, tooth wash, hair tonics, bath tablets, everything.- This Is the recipe given by n chem ist for the woman who would be not only as fair ns the rose, but radiate an odor equally sweet. And in spite of the fad for stronger and more pow erful perfumes, girls of refinement still use nothing but violet. Perfume of any sort should never be used profusely. There should lie Just a suspicion of the odor clinging about the garments, and this is only obtained by the use of satchets placed where gowns nre hung or places where under clothes are kept. Many Kinds of Cuffs. The choice of a cuff is as broad as the choice of u collar. The cheaper variety of shirt waists have the straight stiffened cuff, cut like the one on a man's shirt, nnd held together with link buttons. It la far prettier, however, to avoid this sign of a cheap w aist and put on narrow turnover cuffs, or wrinkle the uleeves over the wrist nnd finish with n tiny edge of lace; then fasten with lace buttons.

Then it Is a simple matter to mark off the sides, each six inches, as bhown in tho diagram at th left of the basket. These two ln-.a-gons are made, wiih their pasteboard frame, exactly a:? the sides were made. N'ext trace on the design, which is to be embroidered in railia, in wido strands. Tho raffia works better if very slightly dampened. The dexign 1 on the Indian order, hence tho coiora found on Indian basketry will bo n.ost effective, the points and central figure old rose, tho wide bands at eliiier t-lde of the central figure and tho groan of graduated single lines green, and the remaining spots black. The em broidery is done in utraight-across stitches, making it appear as if woven in. If one prefers, the embroidery may be omitted, leaving just a plain basket with the over-stitching: of nat ural railia and the pockets inside of gay flowered silk. The embroidery, however, Is well worth while, for It ndds to tho beauty of the basket. The last step in the construction of the basket is to rew the sides togeth er, sew on the bottom and attach the cover, all of which is done villi long, strong needlefuls of rafHa in mat, small stitches. The fastener is a bit of reed p it through th; matting and fastened on the buck, nnd the little loop U a bit of narrow reed buttonholed over with a line strand of railia and fastened firmly through the edge of the cover. The pockets for spools of thread and sll!:, darning outfit and glove Land ers, and the scissors-strap, needle book, emery and all such i.eccsseries are attached to ihe raflla binding so that no stitches show on the outside of the basket.
