t.f them xald: "I think I used to know

very well now." replied the other.
"You weren't as tough as the rest of
us. We thought you were a dude.
We called you Mary, didn't we?" "Yea;
I remember the nickname perfectly."
-Why ilid they call you Mary?" ask
ed the mutual friend. "To the best of
my recollection," paid the young man
who had b-en so named, "it was be
cause I used a tooth brush!" The
two former shipmates laughed heartily

about 3.000 Inhabitants. One-half of
these Inhabitants would work, In re
lays night and day for the comfort
and entertainment of the other half,
whose obligation would be the pay
ment of the bills, which, in the ag
gregate, would represent In addition
to the runnlns expenses and perhaps
JSuO.OOu a year sot aside for the pro
prietor's profits, the interest on $15,
000.000 Invested in land, buildings and
furnishings. Many cities cannot mus
ter a tax list of $13,000,000, so that this
town would be conspicuous above all
others for wealth and In completeness
of the details that make the material
side of life a Joy It would be unrivaled.
Some of Its houses would be con
structed for one family exclusively,
and others would be arranged in single
rooms and In suites. All would be fur
nished in the most luxurious fashion.
In the central warhouse of the town's
steward would be found a greater as
sortment of supplies for the cuisine
than in any public market in the
world. There would be a row of cook
shops, each devoted to the prepara
tion of a special course, ranging from
the soups and entrees and roasts to
the pastries and coffee. There would
be half a dozen big banquet rooms and
ballrooms, several music rooms and a
well-appointed theater or two. The
town would have, of course, a tele
graph office, a complete telephone sys
tem and some means of rapid transit
to every house. Enormous boilers
would supply the heat, and an electric
light plant would furnish the Illumina
tion. There would be an Ice plant
large enough to manufacture fifty tons
a day. There would be silversmith,
blacksmith and tinsmith shops, elec
trical repair and machine shops, flor
ists, hairdressing rooms for men and
women, Turkish baths, upholstery and
furniture shops, decorators and seam
stresses, a 6team laundry, a mesaengei
service, a printing oCDce, a wine cel
lar, with half a million dollars worth
of choice vintages, and a clubhoust
with billiard and reading rooms and
cafes. The town would be policed da
and night by a dozen private detec
tives, and it would have a well-trained
fire department. There would be a
bank, ever who&e counters would pass
millions of dollars each year, and o
central executive oRlce with scores ol
clerks and bookkeepers and auditors.
The proprietor of this town would as
sume all the housekeeping cares of
hi3 1,500 tenants, and many of his 1,590
employes. He would provide amuse
ments and act as the court cf- last
resort. It would seem as if the man
who was rash enough to attempt the
management of such a town, staking
his fortune on the issue, must neces
sarily fall; but as a fair Illustration it
is not overdrawn. Its parallel Is
found in a compact form, with no fea
tures missing and many added, in the
modern big hotel that has reached the
highest development in New York.
Iloom Tonnl Learn Wisdom.
The problem of the Western town
now is to make amends for the past
and to build up a substantial and per
manent prosperity that shall make val
ues steady and the future assured. A
few years ago the rivalry was for a
surplus; now it is for a mere suffi
ciency. In the early days were started
too many lodges, too many churches,
too rr.any stores, too many newspapers.
Now it Is not difficult and indeed it is
common, for the merchants to agree tc
support only two of three papers to a
town of 3000 population or more,
where formerly tnere were five or six.

In the homes of many practical
mothers a plan is being carried out
that Is said to have started ia the
nurseries of England. There is found
upon the wall a large card, measuring
perhaps two by three feet. At the top
of the card are written the name and
address of the nearest doctor, or the
one to be called, in case of accident.
Beneath are the words: "What to do,
and how to do it." Then there are a
list of the accidents that are liable
to happen to children, and the remedy
for each. Bite3, and swallowed but
tons, bleeding nose, burns, convulsions,
bruises, sprain:., and poisons, with the
ever dreaded croup, are all provided
for; and in a box beneath the card
are kept absorbent cotton, court plas
ter, lint, arnica and various necessar
ies that are only to be us in case
of accident. When general chaos
reigns, and even the most intelligent
have lost their wits, this card is in
valuable. To be able to read and un
derstand it, might be one of the tests
used in engaging a nurse maid. Print
ed cards are more easily read than
those that arc written, and one ener
getic mother who believes in living up
to her knowledge, after carefully pre
paring one of these cards and sub
mitting It to a well known physician,
had a number of duplicates printed for
distribution in the nurseries of her
friends. She claims that the apprecia
tion and enthusiasm with which they
were received opened her eyes to the
fact that they are one of the greatest
needs in the nurseries of young
mothers. In the city where a doctor
can be called on very short notice,
they are not so important, but in sub
urban and country homes such a nur
sery card may prove of the greatest
value many times in the course of a
year. Philadelphia Times.
Settlement of Franco-Prussian War.
The indemnity exacted of France in
settlement of the war between that
country and Germany in 1870, amount
ed to five milliards of francs about
$1,000,000,000. One-tenth of this sum
was paid on July 14, 1871; two mil
liards were paid on March 7, 1872; two
milliards more on May 5, 1S73, ten
months in advance of the time fixed;

Writer Says Dueling Is
Less Dak.isJerois Than
There is little danger to be feared
now In accepting a challenge to fight
a duel. According to statistics which
have been gathered at considerable
trouble, it would appear that dueling,
though a barbarous and stupid prac
tice, is less dangerous than bicycling
or ordinary railroad traveling. Only
155 out of 3,914 duels in twenty years
in Italy were fought with rapier or
foils, 3,501 were fought with the sabre,
244 with pistols, and 14 with rifles or
other arms. Of the 7,828 duelists 5,090
were wounded, and only 20, or one per
annum died. The person who compiled
these figures further says that the tem
perature has considerable to do with
the frequency of duels, perhaps be
cause intending duelists are afraid of
catching cold. In France, where "the
code" is resorted to more frequently
than anywhere else, the duel ha3 al
most reached the altruistic stage. Par
is duelists of late have taken to the
sterilizing of their swords, and now it
would be considered as reprehensible
for a duelist as it is for a surgeon to
omit "the usual antiseptic precau
tions." In a newspaper story of a re
cent duel between young Daudet, the
son of the novelist,, and a journalist
cf Paris named Richard, it is said that
after the first attack the point of Dau
det's sword accidentally touched the
ground, when the seconds intervened
and stopped the contest until the blade
could be disinfected. If this practice
should spread to the armies of the
world we might be treated to the spec
tacle of two great opposing bodies of
troops engaged in sterilizing their
weapons before beginning a battle.
Tricks of Peanut Tenders.
Boys who sell peanuts in the grand
stands at the baseball grounds are
never discouraged if there is "nothing
doing" in their line until after the
fifth inning. Patrons of the game do
not begin to feel "peekish" until after
5 o'clock, and then the peanut boy be
gins to work diplomatically. If he
sells one bag in a row of men he does
not pass on to the next isle, but waits
in the back seats until his first cus
tomer begins to eat peanuts. In a
minute or two men who never had any
thought of buying peanuts beckon to
him to come forward. Usually his
basket is empty before he reaches the
next aisle and he goes back for a fresh
supply. One bag of freshly roasted
peanuts in the hands of a man who
eats them as though he enjoys them
is sure to create an appetite for a
dozen more bags among his neighbors.
Between the large crank-operated
pencil-sharpener and the small pocket
one there has hitherto seemed to be
no medium-sized article which had
neither cost nor bulk as an objection.
A novelty in this line that should
prove a great convenience for school
and mercantile use has been invented.
There is an inner sleeve, in which the
pencil is inserted, with a clamp to aid
in holding it rigid. The gear wheels
are connected in a train between the
outer hood and the cutting shaft. The
pencil to be sharpened is forced into
the sleeve until it strikes the cutter.
The operator then grasps the hub in
one hand, places the rubber-covered
friction ring in contact with a desk or
table top and rolls the ring on the
plane surface, which rapidly revolves
the cutter in connection with the pen
cil. Eugene Burke of Lakeview, Ore.,
