Side Comb and I'nUo Hair.
I have just made a discovery which
is calculuted to till with joy the heart
of every woman who wishes to enjoy
the advantages and undoubtedly they
are many of hair which is softly waved
ut tho sides without the attendant
trouble of Indnclnp nature to have its
straightness transformed into tho de
sired undulations. This good thing
takes the form of a tortoisshell comb
to which is attached a strand of softly
waved hair, long enough to be drawn
round the sido of the head, and to give
all the loose -fullness which is so ranch
to be desired.
The Oldest ltrltlsh Tree.
The oldest tree in this country is tho
yew tree at llrndbum, In Kent, which
is said to bo 3,0f)0 years old; whllo at
Fortingal, in Perthshire, Is one nearly
as old. At Ankerwyko House, near
Staines, is a yew tree, which was fam
ous at the date of the signing of Magna
Charta. 121.1, and later was tho trystiug
placo of Henry VIII and AnnloUoleyn.
Tho threu yews at Fountains Abbey
nro ut least 1,200 years old, and beneath
them the founders of tho abbey toit in

rival any yew in nge, 2,000 years being
tho greatest age attained. Damoroy's
oak, in Devonshire, which was blown
down in 1703, had this distinction.

T was Just thirteen
minutes ptiBt 12
o'clock nt night
when tho fast train
going to Paris drew
tip nt tho frontlor.
Tho carriages wcro
of tho corridor pnt
tcrn, which Euro
peans vainly imng-
lno Is the American
plan. A narrow pas
sago ran nlong one side of tho cnrrlngo
and opening out from this wore n num
ber of compartments, each scnting
oight persons. Tho Lndy nnd tho Tiger
had been on tho train slnco it started
In tho afternoon nt 5 o'clock on tho pre
vious day, and so had had a cholco of
places. I snt In ono comer by tho win
dow nnd tho Lndy sat In tho corner op
posite. As tho irnln went on toward
Franco tho empty places gradually
filled up, nnd now tho carriage was so
full that one or two wretched persons
wore pacing up nnd down the corrHor
or trying to get plnces on llttlo hinged
sents nttnehed to tho sido of tho pas
sage, with a latent spring snmowhere
which mado the Ud flip up against tho
wall when tho sitter rose to his feet. I
remember this habit of the little hinged
shelf, because on ono occasion when I
rose to stretch myself I snt down ex
pecting the seat to be still there, which
It wasn't. I woke up suddenly on
reaching the floor, and then examined
tho mechanism of tho contrlvnnco with
Interest nnd perhaps Just a shade of an
noyance Tho French nre reputed to be n polite
nation, nnd, although I knew we would
cross tho border sometlmo after mid
night, nnd that wo should meet th- in
ovltablo custom house, I thought the ex
amination of baggage would be somo
what superficial, nnd thnt maybe a cus
toms officer woud come through tho
train and look at the smaller pieces of
luggage with out disturbing us to any
great extent Such, however, was far
from being the case. We were told
rather gruffly that wo must leave the
train, nnd thnt everyone must tnke with
him his hand baggage. I staggered
ot somnolently under tho load, and
the Lady wns compelled to como also
with a couple of shdwlstraps, because
there was more of our luggage than I
could carry at one time. We were kept
on the platform shivering with cold for
n while, then two big doors were
opened and we trooped In, placing our
impedimenta on a low bench, behind
which stood tho uniformed French cus
toms official. When tho cxnmlnntion
was done and tho baggage chalked we
had to wait at the other end of the long,
cold room until other doors wero
opened, and then were allowed to get
out once more to the platform nnd into
tho train. When I staggered on board
nnd passed along tho narrow corridor
to our compartment, I thought at first
that I had mnde a mistake, because nn
oldish man sat In the corner In which
the Lady intended to Journey to Pnrls.
A second look, however, satisfied me
that this wns the compartment we had
occupied, and I said to tho man, quite
politely, for I thought the taking of
another's sent hnd been accidental:
"I beg your pardon, but this seat be
longs to the Lady."
Tho man Bhruggcd his shoulders and
said thnt he deeply regretted tho cir
cumstance, but the plnce belonged to
him until we reached Paris iu the
"Oh," I cried, hotly, "this won't do,
you know. This placo Is taken and huB
been tnken slnco tho train started. You
will have to get a placo somewhere
"If you wished to retain your sent,"
eald the man calmly, "you should have
put some baggage upon It. Thero was
nothing hero when I entered. I have
the placo and Intend to keep It."
"THE DEVIL YOU DO," I CRIED.
"But," I Insisted, "we couldn't lenvo
any baggage upon It becauso wo wero
compelled to tako It to tho custom
house." Again the man shrugged his shoul
ders. "That has nothing to do with me,," he
said. "The plnce was empty when I
took It. nnd I Intend to keep it."
Then the Tiger came uppermost
"The devil you do," I cried. The
Lady behind me touched me on the
shoulder and begged that I wouldn't
use violent language.
"I shall not use language at all," said
the Tiger, "but this man has to get nut
or I'll throw him out"
"Ob, will you?" said the Frenchman.
"You bet your boots I will," I sold,
throwing down my luggage.
"Will you got out quietly or will you
go after there has been a fuss?"
"I shall not get out at all," said tho
"Now fo- the Inst tlmo," I cried,
throwing up tho window, "will you give
up this seat to the Lady, whose place It
"I told you." ho answered, "that tho
place was not taken and I took It. I re
fuse to glvo 11 up."
"Oh, very woll," I said, "then you will
go to Paris without your luggage," say
ing which I seized the valise, which was
in the rack over his head, and flung It
out of the window. Next followed
some shawlstraps, then some sticks and
rugs, nftor thnt n smnller bundle. J
What tho man would have dono I do not
know, but nt this Juncture tho Ladj In
tervened. "Seo here," bIio Bnld, "yon go right
out on tho platform nnd bring thoso
things in ngnln."
"I'll do nothing of tho sort," I cried,
mnd straight through. "If tho man sits
hero two minutes longer I'll chuck him
out after them."
"Well." Bald tho Lndy, with decision
In her voice, "If you don't bring thoso
things In I shall bring them in myself."
What Is n Tigor to do? Tho Lndy
went out of tho carrlngo onto tho pint-
form nnd I snw sho lntondcd to pick up
tho ninn's trnps nnd bring them in, nnd
ho was qulto willing to hnvo her do bo.
I couldn't allow thnt, go I followed her,
picked up tho nrtlcles nnd brought
thorn mcokly Into tho cnrrlngc. Tho
lndy stood wntchlng mo through tho
window until I plnccd them nently In
tho rack ngnln.
"Now," said tho Frenchman, lennlng
across to me, "you npologlzo to mo, If
"Whnt I did." I nnswered, "I did bo
cnusc tho Lady commanded mo to do It.
I did It very rcluctnntly.nnd as for apol
ogy, you can go to merry ." I don't
know thnt there Is nny need to set down
the rest of tho Rcntenco hero. Tho
mnn Icnned complnccntly bnck In IiIb
seat with a provoklngly triumphant
smile on his fnco which mado the help
less Tlcer crit his teoth In anger. I
looked out of tho window to tell tho
Lady to come Into tho carrlngo again,
for tho tmln wnB timed to start in n fow
minutes, but I saw her wnlklng toward
n gendarme, whom sho accostod with a
winning smllo. Tho gorgeous official
placed his heels together n military
fashion nnd rniscd his hnt to tho Lady,
then ho bent his head very deferen
tially whllo sho nppenred to bo whisper
ing to him in a volco so low thnt It wns
Impossible for me to henr what wns
said. Suddenly tho official straight
ened himself up with a look of amaze
ment on his face, nnd cried: "No! Nol
No mnn could possibly act like that.
Surely, madam, you must bo mistaken."
"Great heavens!" I thought, nghast,
"surely the Lndy Is not giving the Tiger
away by complaining to the gendarmo
of his conduct. I hnvo humiliated my
self before tho Frenchman whllo ho
Ipered at me nnd Bat there In triumph."
The gendarme quickly nppronched tho
steps of tho cnrrlnge, stood beside them
while he politely waved the Lady on
board, then followed her to tho door of
our compartment, and sho pointed out
to him tho Frenchman who sat In tho
corner. The gendnrmo came sternly
"It Is not possible, sir," ho snld, "that
you hnvo taken tho place of this Lndy
and refuse to glvo it up?"
"The placo was unoccupied," said tho
"Of course It was unoccupied," said
tho cendarmo Indignantly. "All pas
sengers aro compelled to go Into tho
custom-house; you know that as well
ns I do. You are certain It 1b your
placo?" he said, turning to the Lady,
and' speaking as politely ns ho hnd
spoken gruffly to tho other.
"Oh. quite," said the Lndy, nnd sev
eral of tho passengers, who had not
said a word during my struggle, at
once assured the gcudarmo that tho
Lndy had occupied that place for Borao
hundreds of miles.
"Como, sir," said tho gendarmo,
"como out of that nt once."
"But." said the man. protestlngly,
"thero uro not other places on the train.
Tho trnln is full."
"I hnvo nothing to do with that,"
replied the gendnrme; "thnt 1b for tho
officials of the rallwny; they will find
you a place;' thoy are compelled to do
The man hesitated for a moment, nnd
the gendarme put his hand on his
shoulder. "Como," he said, "I don't
wnnt to uso force."
The man arose reluctantly from his
corner, taking hlB belongings With him.
Then tho gendarme, with nn air and
manner that I have never seen equaled,
bowed and waved his hand toward tho
vacant scat The Lady smiled, and re
turning his bow sank Into the plnce.
Tho gendarme then, bringing his heels
together with a click, bowed to us all
and left tho compartment. The Lady
bent over me nnd snld In n whlspor:
"Follow thnt gendarmo nt once nnd
glvo hlra at least 5 franca, nnd glvo It
to him so nicely that he won't think I
know anything about it."
I caught up to the ofllcial upon tho
steps of the carrlngo and pressed tho
money upon him. Ho refused it llnger
ingly and reluctantly, and when I in
sisted he accepted it with a deprecntory
nlr, saying that he was a poor man, hut
It was tho delight of us nil to oblige tho
Lady, in which sentiment I cordlnlly
agreed with him. And thus tho in
ternational episode ended.
