WHERE THEY LEARN ECONOMY
HIS REAL WOE
Matron Knew What Sho Wat About
When She Went to Engage
The manager of the employment
agency was lined to hearing women la
search of maids ask applicants all
sorts of queer questions, says the New
York Tribune, but this matron made
him mildly curious. Of 14 girls la
turn she had Inquired: "Have yoa
worked in a minister's family?" None
of them had. "Too bad," said the ma
Iron to the manager. "None of thes
girls will do."
"May I ask," said the manager
"why you are anxious to know II
these girls have worked In ministers'
"Why, the fact Is, we're very hard
up just now," said the matron, candid
ly; "I want a girl who knows how to
economize, and those who have worked
In clergymen's families, I've discov

"There! She's all done except for

Further reflection was interrupted
by the sudden entrance of his sister

PETER WAS REALLY MOVING
Thirty-Two-Year Old Horse Creates
Much Alarm in Breast of Woman
Peter, 3J years old, was the white
horse of all work which had belonged
to the Dentons ever since, 30 years
ago, they had moved Into the country
to farm and "rest." Peter had done
most of the resting, however, and his
perfect health seemed to promise that
he was destined to keep on resting al
most Indefinitely. In spite, of his quiet
nature, Mrs. Benton, who had grown
up In town and was not accustomed
to horses, regarded Peter as a fear
When not otherwise employed,
Peter moved deliberately about the
yard at the end of a rope, "mowing
tho lawn" with his hungry mouth,
says Youth's Companion. It would
havo been safe, so far as Peter was
concerned, to let Mm roam free, but
Mrs. Denton insisted that such a
course would be disastrous, and stern
ly forbade it.
Dob, the six-yenr-old son, of whom
Peter appeared to be very fond, was
allowed a special privilege. When
ever tho grass In the middle of the
lawn was too short for even Peter to
crop, Bob would lead him to the bor
ders of the garden, and still holding
him by the rope, the 32 year-old horse
would eat the longer and greener
One day, whon this process was go

kept on eating. As long as the rope

The cry of the public that moving

SUMMER BACK YARD PARTIES
Young Women Who Cannot Afford
Trip to Seashore Inaugurate
Novel Means of Amusement.
Any kind of outdoor entertainment
is preferable In summer to staying In
the house, so, for that reason, several
young women who cannot go to tho
senshore or mountains for the "heated
term" have inaugurated what they
call "back-yard parties" In the spaces
In the rear of their homes. These
have been mnde attractive enough to
warrant asking their friends to spend
the evening there.
At one house lu town In particular,
the ynrd has been turned into a really
lovely garden. Ivy and other climbing
plants have been planted along tho
fences and now completely cover
them. The center is a grass plot, and
around Is a border of gay blooming
geraniums and other hardy flowers.
Benches, garden chairs and tables are
placed here and there. A low cot bed,
with rug and cushions, forms a divan.
At night, with Japanese lanterns
strung across and little lamps hung
among the Ivy, the effect Is surprising
The daughter of the house finds her
friends more than ready to accept her
Invitations, and the open air entertain
ment is thoroughly enjoyed. Some
times they play games, or they have
music of banjo or mandolin, and sing
college songs. The men, of course,
have permission to smoke, and the
cold lemonade, Ices and cakes are
especially delicious served under, Uiese
unusual and Informal conditions. Try
It; it is well worth the trouble.
AMERICAN MEN ARE STUPID
Fail to Keep Up Reading; Have Na

If the truth were told, most young
American men are not especially in
teresting. They do not keep up their
reading, says Atlantic Monthly. They
have a national obtundity when it
conies to music, to art, to literature;
nor do many of them take any of
these things at all seriously. Tbo
young among them are not good con
versationalists. Our cleverest men
are tuonologists pure and simple.
They lecture admirably. They aro
born orators along modified lines.
They are inevitable story tellers.

Luxurious Bee Hives.
A school muster in a small German
town, being very fond of bees, rtv
solved to build for them something
novel In tho way of a home. As beo
lives are generally of the snmo size,
color and shape, It Is sometimes dif
ficult for a bet! to find Its own particu

master decided to give each of his

are also a number of animals, includ

as arranged, was between John Kgan,
a county judge, nnd Roger llarett,

ground, llarett, who was tho chal

for the signal to be given, and then
walked coolly away, calling out:

last, however, he cried out:

may go your own way, or come and
shake hands with me, whichever way
you like best."
