"Do they make vou tired?"
"Well, 1 should hum!1
The question and its metaphorical
but vigorously expiessive answer were
inspired by the presence of a Detro.t
dude (agenulncspecimen of the species)
in a Griswold street barber shop. The
person who proposed the question was
a gentleman who subsequently ex
ilained that the sight of a dude or even
a dudeling who merely parts his hair
in the middle), had almost as marked
an effect on him as water has on a dog
affected with hydrophobia.
"I git quite a procesh of them things

with a curious nervous movement -a

"When I got through with my regu

Only a Remnant.
Yes, only a bit of crumpled silk hid
away amidst the luxuriant disorder of a
lady's shopping bag. A slender slice of
shimmering silkiuc.loso lompauionship
with a dainty pocket-handkerchief, a
button-hook, a very rich portemonnaie
w.th a very poor interior, ten or twenty
wrinkled hair-pins, three car-tickets, a
re ip or two, a card case, and a mis
cellaneous asso'tment o. caramels, gum
drops, and a dreamy, complex atmos
phere of patchouly and hamamelis.
Only a remnant.
Ruta remnant with a history, a rem
nant with a future full of romantic pos
sibilities. That remnant was c jAuribus nnum:
that is to say, one of many which were
to lind temporary accommodation in
that shopping-bag: many which were
to begot by means similar to those which
sc 'iircd this.
Rut our business at present is not with
them, but with this one only: this soi
tary remnant; this silken hermit.
( )n the morning of the day whieh fouid
this remnant iu Mrs. Shoppington's
shopping-bag, Mrs. S. started out bright
and early, arrayed in her best attire ?.nd

Following the injunction of old, she

of or needed to the woman on a chop

Mrs. Shoppington, her shopping-bag
and its contents, including the remnant,
the hero of .ur story, had jut emerged
from the establishment of Satinsheen &
Grosgrain's. Mrs. Shoppington had
been successful in that establishment.
She had made a goodly begin
ning, and Mrs. Shoppington was happy.
She had told the clerk that she. wished
to look at some of his silk. She was
better than her word. She looted at all
the accommodating clerk shewed her,
and he showed her the entire stock in
trade. Then she informed him that she
was not ready to purchase that dav.
She had not come prepared tc buy. In
deed she had not thought of visiting any
store, being in a great hurry to visit a,
relative n the suburbs: but just as she
was about passing the door she remem
bered that she wished to lock at some
silk, and she couldn't resist the temp
tation to step in for just a moment. She
.vas very sorry she h:id put tim to such
trouble, but would the clerk giyeapnjj?

eves lingered so admiringly.
"The clerk would, and he did, and

Rnt Mrs. Shoppinglon did not hurry
away to the railway"station. Possibly
she "had forgotten her relative in the
suburbs wh.lst feasting her eyes upon
those silken temptations or in her joy
over the remnant in her shopping
bag. For she entered the dry-goods houso
of Hamburg it Co., a few doors away,
and went instinctively' to the silk coun
ter. She was shownsevcral invoices of
the glossy fabric, and then, as in Satin
siieeu & Grosgrain's, she informed the
patient clerk t at she did not intend to
purchase. A friend askc.l her to look at
some silks for her and get a few pat
terns. Mrs. Shoppington did not men
tion who this fr.cnd was. Possibly she
referred to that relative in the suburb-.
The clerk begged her pardon, but it
was contrarv to" rules to give patterns.
Mrs. Shoppington was very sorry. Her
friend would he so disappointed. Then
she looked at the silk again, and re
marked that "that" woahf just suit her
friend, she was sure. Now, couldn't
the clerk break the rule for this once?
She wouldn't ask such a thing for her
sels. Rut her friend
The clerk relented and cut off a snip;
and having done this, it was the easiest
thing in the world to induces him to give
patterns of three or fcur more pieces:
for possibly, you know, her friend
might prefer so'me one of the others to
the piece which suited Mrs. Shopping
Only a remnant.
Rata solitary remnant no longer. It
now had several companions, as rich
and lustrous as itself.
Mrs. Shopp ngton's step was ligbter
and her smile sweater than when we
first saw her emerging from Satinsheen
&: Gro-rain's, notwithstanding she f hen
looked supremely happy.
Mrs. Shoppington's shopping tour
promised to be a successful one. And
it was eminently succe-s.ul. It is un
necessary to follow her from store to
store, or to relate the sweet litlte subter
fuges through which she possessed her
self of silken patterns of every hue and
in goodly number.

Rebecca Grate died many years ago.
In her younger days she resided with
her parents in Philadelphia. She had a
warm friend, Miss Hoffman, of New
York, and the two girls were in the
habit of paying periodical visits to each
other in their respective cities. Miss
Hoffman was the betrothed of Washing
ton Irving, but before the marriage
could take place consumption claimed
the fair New York girl, and she suc
cumbed to the disease, tenderly nursed
on her death-bed by her friend, Rebecca
Gratz. Irving, who never recovered
from the loss of his lirst and only love,
naturally formed a warm friendship for
his late sweethearts other self, Rebecca.
Miss Gratz was a woman of singularly
pure thought and hight of mind. She
felt keenly the slight cast upon her race
and creed, for in those davs the Jcwsish
disability laws still existed in England,
smlvcry- few of the "chosen people"
were admitted into the best American
society. During Washington Irving's
travels in Europe, Miss Gratz and he
were in constant correspondence. The
American author was warmly received
by English writers. With Walter Scott
he sojourned several weeks. At that
time Scott had not avowed the author
ship of the Wavcrley series of novels,
but to Irving he confided his secret,
and also told him that he (Scott) was at
work on a new book, "Ivanhoe." The
two authors discussed the plot of
"Ivanhoe"' together and particularly
the character of the Jewess Scott was
introducing. "What shall I call her?"
asked Scott. "Call her 'Rebecca, "' re
plied Irving, his thoughts wandering to
tlie Rebecca of his friendship. Irving
dwelt on the noble trait.s in Miss Gratz's
character to his friend, and especially
drew attention to her steadfastness of
creed and the grandeur but melancholy
oi her thoughts. Scott was tilled with
sympathy for her character. Wiicn
"Invanhoe" was eventually published
