The Value of Literary History.
Literary history belongs to the do
main of fact just as much ns geography
does, aud the ability on tho part of a
child to reel off the names of authors
and their dates is just as useless as his
ability to toll tho capital of Bolivia or
to draw u map of Afghanistan. A cer
tain amount of literary history is use
ful, tho amount ger in Mr. Stop
ford Brooke's and Prof. Biuhardsonra
primers and in Mr. Brander Mathers'
volumo on American literature, but
not a bit more, for as intellectual
training literary history is not so cOl
ctent as another study. September
fi The Western Man'a Ideal.
The United States is unique in tue
extent to which tho individual has
been given an open field, uncheckod by
restraints of on old social order, or of
scientific administration of govern
ment. Tho Bolf-mado man was the
Western man's ideal, was tho kind of
man that all men might become. Out
of his wilderness experience, out of tho
freedom of his opportunities, ho fash
ioned a formula of social regeneration,
the freedom of tho indvidual to seek
his own. Ho did not consider that his
conditions were exceptional and tem
porary. September Atlantic
Untr to Me ml n Silk Waist.
A dressmaker lays down threo rules
for mending a silk waistt Use ravel
ings when you can. Sew from the un
der side. Do not turn over edges, but
darn flat aud trust to careful pressing.
If a bone begins to show through, do
not mend but cut off the bono an inch.
If the silk wears off around tho hooka
aud eyes, move them along ever so lit
tle. Make a virtue of worn out seams
by applying black feather stitching;
and remember that a silk waist is good
as long as tho upper part of tho sleeve
remains. Plastron, choker, lace, cuffs
and careful mending make a new waist

It is very hard to go about with a
bullet and an ache in your head. Still
harder is i. when your doctor disbe
lieves tho headache and bullet and
shuts you up as a lunatic. This hap
pened to a young Hamburg confec
tioner, and for some years he lived in a
lunatic asylum. Finally ho signed a
paper that the headache was a fancy
and tho bullet a mero idea, and that
ho had got them both out of his head.

"Look tired! I am tired, and I'm
cross and ugly. Do I look as if I had
boon attacked by nervous dyBpopsia,
almost exhausted by St Vitus' dance
and then left on tho rack for hours?"
"Well, not quito that, old man."
"Then I'm in luck. Tho fact of the
matter is that I was out of tho house
only tihreo hours yesterday and then I
went to Harlom and back in tho cable
cars. They were the only restful hours
I had between early in tho morning
and midnight Why? Bccauso I was
the victim of the confidence of two of
my neighbors who havo closed
their premises and gono to tho
country and have loft servants in
charge. Do you catch on? Well,
some of your funny friends on
tho press don't come anywhere near the
actual facts when they bring out every
year tho pen-worn descriptions of the
antics of servants during tho absonco
of families. If my neighbors' servants
would dress up in tho fineries of their
mistresses, and occupy tho parlors. I
wouldn't mind, because tho damago
would be to tho feelings of thoso who
should bo concerned, but when they in
vite their sisters, cousins, aunts and
nearer relatives to Jamborees in tho
rear yard or basement and disturb my
peace of mind I'm ready to kick.
"Tho rear of my house is about thir
ty feet from tho side of a largo apart
ment houso that has tonants that are a3
quiet as they can be, usually. My fa
vorite room is in tho rear, because it
is cool and shady thero. My suffcring3
began In the morning whllo reading tho
papers and I thought they wouldn't
last long, but I didn't know tho mean
ing of servants' invitations. Tho quiot
old gentleman who clcGcd tho apart
ments in tho second story and went
with his wlfo and daughter about a
month ago, leaving a servant in charge,
would havo been surprised if ho had re
turned unexpectedly yesterday. I Judg
ed from the conversation that tho sorv
ant had invited her brothor and sister
and two cousins to spend tho day with
her In very nicely furnished rooms, be
cause thoy took possession of tho par
lor and proceeded to mako thomsolvos
comfortable. The young men were In
their shirtsleeves, and they apprecito
ed tho restful qualities of tho lounges
by drawing them to tho windows and
gathoring all of tho sofa pillows thoy
could find and stretching out at full
length on them. Between snatches of
all tho now tunes of tho variety halls
were remarks on tho eccentricities of
One found a French text book and
tried to instruct tho others in tho pro
nunciation of French. Another who
thought he had tho voice of on elocu
tionist recited from ono of tho class
ics that the old gentleman prized.
Magazines and illustrated periodicals
amused them for awhile. Tho mlxturo
of slang and good literature was not
very edifying. After lunch they turn
ed to gossip and the details of picnics
on previous occasions. The laughter
and loud talking Jarred one's nerves,
and I think I would bo willing to pay
a month's rent for tho old gentleman
if he had returned and found tho party
In possession. I couldn't read and I
could hardly wrie a letter and my wife
couldn't get hor usual afternoon doze.
Late in tho afternoon the visitors went
away and I thought we would havo a
quiet evening, but that's where I made
"My wlfo remained at home, but I
went out for a breath of air. When I
returned I hoard the most exasperating
noises from the basement and yard of
tho houso adjoining. Tho servants In
chargo there had invited their friends
or relatives to spend the evening, and
the way they carried on was disgrace
ful. Tho fact that tho front of the
hoiiBO was dark with drawn curtains
waB no indication that liveliness should
not ho expected behind the gloom. Tho
contrast of tho quietness In June, be
fore tho family departed, with the
noisiness in July was remarkable and
suggestive. The speeches, congs and
remarks could not havo been louder
if tho company had occupied an east
side tenement. Tho disturbance lasted
until midnight Porhaps you don't
wonder now that I look tired."
Tho experience may ho suggestive to
house-owners and tenants who do not
realize that they may leave behind op
portunities for disagreeable and objec
Uonablo behavior. It may bo said that
servants should be allowed to havo
some fun, but It is doubtful whether
their masters and mistresses would
knowingly permit them to havo that
fun elsewhere than tho neighborhoods
they are willing to seek at other times.
Tho reflection on tho bohavior of
wme servants should not be applied to
all. Tho servants that havo respect for
the families they servo aro quiet and
orderly nnd thoy are ao observant of
tho requirements of a respectable local
ity as any ono could desiro. Thoy aid
In the solution of tho servant question.

A progressive hammock party Is
something now. At one recently given
in a smaller Wisconsin city each guest
upon arrival was presented with a tiny

written one-half of some chosen sub

to sit for flvo minutes with tho girl
who hold tho first part ot the subject.
The lawn presented a very pretty pic

terns and hammocks and having rugs
spread over tho grass. Over each ham
mock hung a card-board each bearing a
line. Tho couple whoBO card bore the
same inscription as that abovo the
hammock occuplod that particular one.
Among tho subjects were: An Ideal
Boy, An Ideal Girl, Lovo Spoons and
Chaperons. Each man conversed for
flvo minutes upon one subject, and thou
progressed to the next hammock where
conversation upon another topic was
renewed. After each hammock had
been visited tho girls voted as to which
man had ontcrtained them in the bos
manner, and ho won the prize.
