I Use the Monarch" IF typewriters were machines run by mechanical means in stead of human hands, you would find that, agfren amount, a jK ircr, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed than other typewriters. Run by "girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and without a "tapering off,M from fatigue toward the day's end. Both these truths are due to the fact that LTGr HT TOUCH. lightens the draft, uses nower more economically. Eliminates the waste of energy that typifies the heavy-touch machines. This in turn means increased production per machine and de creased cost of typewriter work per folio. While Monarch Light Touchand the MONARCH ? ? ? ? ? Y 38 Y 1 ? Monarch Rigid Carriage are exclusive Monarch features, every other import ant feature of the modern typewriting machine, such as Back Space Key, Two Color Ribbon Shift, Contained Tabula tor, etc., etcwill also be found on the Monarch.

He knew she was a light sleeper. I'Vciiuently she bad awakened after having slept only three weeks merely it the sound of the icebergs crushing some Intrepid explorer's ship In the floes. He remembered this as his none too steady footfalls crunched through the snow. She heard him ns he wns trying to get in through the servants' entrance In the areaway, and stuck her head out of the upper window. "Is that you, Ojib," she de manded. Mr. Ojiblwosky was forced to admit that It was. "This is a fine time to be getting home,' fihe exclaimed. "What time Is It?" "My dear, it's only quar'er pash Feb ruary," replied Mr. OJibiwosky, some what thickly, however. Hut Mrs. Ojib, by consulting her calendar, was already wise to the fact that It was half-past May, and. hav ing 110 desire to pry into family af fairs, we will draw n veil over the scene that followed, after the manner of the good old story writers.

(Jrec.-e, which is looming just now largely in world politics, 011 account of the Cretan question, can boast of a queen who Is one of the most accomp lished liiiKiilsts among Kuropean roy alties. Queen Olgn, who was a Rus sian princess, being a daughter f the Orand Duke Constantino, Ik, like most of her coinpa. riots, excellent at lan guages, and speaks not only French, Kiinlish, and Italian, but also the tongues of her adopted country, (Ireek and Albanian. The queen i.Iho en joys a unique prerogative among the rest of her sex, for sbo Is probably the only woman who has over had the dignity of admiral conferred upon her an honor bestowed on her by tho lato czar of Russia. Like the present czarina, her Greek majesty has a pas sion for flowers, and always has her rooms profusely decorated with them; and she Is likewise a keen philan thropist. .... HANGING A HORSE. Trial and Execution of a Steed Which Overturned a Carriinjo. The foliuHinj; account id' llie pri vate (rial ;t!nl execution of a horse Ity eoiiuitatiil of (lie fantastic Mar iiiis ilc !ri(Urvilio in taken from an article cnlitlcd "liiorajihie ties Kxcontiitiues," originally iiihlisheil without signature in I.a liepub litiie ilu lVuple, descrihcil as "Al niamuh iVmocratiijiio, 1'aris, chcz l'rost, 1S.M)," ami republished in Oeuvivs l'ostliutnes of liumlelaire, 1'aris. The article is evidently one of naudoliiire't; hits of hack work, but even here the muster's touch h felt: 'Tirsl of all let us mention the Manpiis tie r.riipievillo, a very rich person, popularly deemed crazy nil'' prohahly slightly so. At least he did nil that was necessary to justi fy the opinion one had of him. One day 11s he was rushing violently through the streets in his brilliant equipage one of his forses fell. The carriage was upset, and the mar quis received an ugly contusion. He is brought bnck to his mansion ; he is in n rage; ho wiints to dismiss his coachman. The latter justifies him self. The accident was not caused by any fault of his. One of tho horses is to blame. 'If it is so,' says the marquis, 'tho horso must be punished; every fault must have its penalty.' lie orders all his household to oppear steward, but ler, valets, scullions, grooms. It is a veritable court of justice. They nil take their places. The marquis presides. The accused is brought in. lie preserves in bis noble bear ing the calmness of innocence. The coachman makes the accusation. The secretary of the marquis, till ing the olliee of lawyer, presents the defense of the quadruped. He is h ug winded, heavy, Hat, exactly in if he was pleading before parlia ment, lie quotes the Digest; he spits hntin. lie concludes by re questing that his client should be returned to the stable, whose finest ornament he is. The ease is heard. The marquis gives his opinion first, lie considers" the accusation ns proved, lie votes for the sentence of death. All his valets hurry to vote like him. The whole thing seemed to them n joke. They were mistaken. The marquis bad u scaf fold erected in his yard. He ad dressed to the condemned 11 prolix discourse, in which he made him feel the enormity of bis crime. Dur ing this oratorical display the un fortunate victim looked upon the instrument of torture with 11 firm eye no affectation of courage, no despondency. "As soon as the marquis had fin ished a groom threw with dexterity a rope around the neck of the pa tient, and 11 few seconds later ti e poor animal was suspended in the air, the coachman was pulling his feet down, n valet was stamping on his shoulders. The hanging was ns correct as those daily exhibited m the square of the Grcvc. The at tendants were stupefied with aston ishment." How Indians Poisoned Arrows. Indians took a fresh deer liver, fastened it to a long polo and then went to certain daces where they knew they would find rattlesnakes. Tho bucks would poke the first rat tler with tho liver. The snake would repeatedly strike nt the liver with its fangs until its poison was all used up. Then the pole was car ried homo and fastened upright un til tho liver became as dry as a bone. The liver was pounded to 11 line powder and placed in a buck skin hijr. Thia powder would stick like ,"luc to any moistened surface find : 1 "d to .toison nrrows. ut In Damaging Evidence Against His Own Client. It tloes not seem to he frequent that a plaintiff get through the courts what he considers a satis factory settlement for damages for an injury sustained when a railroad company is the defendant. Cases nru of record, however, where the attorney for the railroad has un consciously admitted evidence that resulted it. u tp!Vt f t Mi" ;i!:iin? tilL Such a case was that of Mifc. Herkimer of lteloit, who Fued ho Missouri Pacific for $10,000 bo tore a court in Kansas. The defendants were represented by tho able and learned Waggoner, who Fought to prove that there wm a full moon on the night of ,tho accident and to place tho responsi bility with the plaintiff. A messen ger loy was sent for and secured nn almanac of tho year of the acci dent. Kxamining it only to learn that it contained tho desired proof, ho offered it in evidence. In his argument the lawyer for the plaintiff declared that the de fendant company was the property of certain millionaires, whom he nnmed, who had amassed fortunes totaling a great number of millions and were well able to enro for his crippled client. Waggencr was immediately on his feet offering loud objection to this line of argument, claiming that nothing had been introduced in the evidence to justify tho state ment. "May it please your honor, there is," declared the other lawver. "It is in the direct evidence offered by the learned attorney for the de fense." "Where?" shouted the surprised Waggoner. "It is in this almanac, your honor," cplmly replied the lawyer. He had studied the book, and there in its pages were pictures of tho men named, together with sketches of their lives, and every one of them was rate.l at from $100,000, 000 to $150,000,000. These figures evidently appeared to the jury to be substantial enough to award 11 verdict for the amount asked, and that without leaving their seats. New York Tribune.
