What tho Nails Indicate.
From the Cincinnati Enquirer.
It has long been known to doctors
that tho shape and appearance of the
finger nails form important factors in
the diagnosis of disease. Thus, long
nails indicate physical weakness, and
a tendency to consumption. Where
the nails are long and blueish they in
dicate bad circulation. The same typo
of nail, but shorter, denotes tendency
to throat affections, bronchitis and the
like. Short, small nails often indicate
heart disease; Where they are short,
flat and sunken, you may look for ner

Mental Workers Must Sleep.
Someone says of sleep: The amount
of Bleep one needs depends on the
amount of mental work he docs while
awake. Men whose brains are never
busy can get along with live or six
hours sleep a day, even though their
hands are always employed during the
waking hours, but the mental worker
must have more sleep or no will go in
sane. When bilious or costive, eat a cascaret
candy cathartic, cure guaranteed. 10c,

Carmlchlcl'B work ha always been a
puzzlo to tho critics. Lately they have
decided that ho bolongs to tho Impres
sionist Bchool, nnd perhaps thoso blg
Jolntcd, green-oyed,. women, for which
ho had occasionally" been responsible,
do lndlcnto a tendency In that direc
tion. Thoro Is nothing of tho Impres
sionist about Carmlchlcl'B earlier
paintings, however, and yet you would
know that they were his; Just as you
would know that tho Indifferent, bored
looking Carmlchlel whom you meet in
every plnce worth going to Is Identical
with tho threadbare but always de
lightful fellow who used to pnint
BtudlcB of the Creole girls In the winter
Perhaps, though, you were not
among tho fortunate number who
know him before he had painted his
way Into the very heart of Philistla.
We were only a small coterie, but our
lack of oven a bowing acquaintance
with famo was a sad trial to most of
us. Carmlchlel was different, little as
you would think it when you seo him
today. Ho never seemed then to have
tho least ambition only to do his work
as well as ever he could, and If now
and then a sketch was sold, why, there
were plenty of friends to pat him on
tho back and to help him cat and drink
And tho sketches eold well after a
time, for that wild artist colony In tho
quaint French quarter was a happy
thought for a crowd of out-at-elbows
boys, to the most of whom Paris re
mained a dream for more years than
we caro to think about. There waa
plenty of local color there, and any
number of saucy girls who were al
ways willing to pose for us, and who
considered themselves well paid if they
received the first rough sketch of what
the sanguine artist Invariably assured
them was sure to prove "the plcturo of
Carmlchlel has several of the3e glow

through them all you can trace a like

another method and a different subject,
hut It's tho eame Carmlchlel.
We nover knew exactly how It was
that he camo across Carita. She was
one of the dancers at the littlo French
theater or at least they called It a
oil . l

WITH A BLAZE OF WRATH,
theater It was a sort of cross between
a low cafe and a second-rate concert
hall. We used to go there occasionally
and throw roses to the dancers, though
Carita was the only one that It paid to
look at twice. She was really a beauty
and quite Spanish In her ways, al
though some of ub fancied that there
might be Just a trace of darker blood.
Of her husband there could bo no ques
tion. He was a greasy, low-browed fel
low, and wholly a villain. He used to
beat her when his shop wa3 raided
or so sho told Carmlchlel. Carmlchlel
had never been In love before, and he
lost his head rapidly. So when one
morning Carita came Into our common
etudlo the Commune we called It
with her forehead hound up, and tho
contour of one -pretty check almost ob
scured by a Hvld, straggling bruUe,
Carmlchlel upset his colors over the
"peasant's bridal" he was at work up
onthey painted Etich things In thoso
days and declared that Carita was
done with her brute of a husband for
ever. It really made very littlo difference
to any of us. Carmlchlel was tho tame
Jolly comrade as before, and worked
away furiously in the queer little house
which Carita had furnished to suit her
self. Sho figured in most of his pic
tures that year, and after a time came
tho little JuMcn, and Carmlchlel turned
his attention to a hitherto neglected
branch of nrt, and his canvases begun
to gloam with tho pinky flesh of dark
eyed babies. The little Jullen was a fas
cinating model, and his father proved
himself a genius by the facility with
which he Interpreted the baby graces.
All of which would have bbon very well
had not Carita suddenly grown Jealous.
Her temper was never of the best, and
In her silly lltle heart sho considered
herself highly aggrieved and neglected.
Then they quarreled, and matters grew
worse and worse, until Carita actually

mado with tho great artist. Carmlchlel
was never mcok at any time, but yet
the matter might havo ended differ

him his start in life chosen at this time
to Introduce himself. Dut tho fateful
letter camo nnd Carmlchlel went to the
big hotel across tho river, nml thcro
was an lntorvlow. It waB lato when he
returned, nnd Carita met him with a
hlnzo of wrath. Ho had not told her
where ho was going, and sho wae diffi
cult to plcaso those days. Sho thor
oughly understood the nrt of making
herself exasperating, and for a moment
Carmlchlel caught himself envying his
predecessor his enormous biceps and
big stick. What ho had to say was
spoken In a few words, and with a last
good-by to the littlo Jullen and a mock
ing mcsBago to tho womnn, CarmlchUl
turned his back upon IiIb threadbare
past, and upon Carita.
He slept at tho Commune that night,
and when wo opened tho door In re
sponse to a gcntlo tap next morning,
we found no ono In view except tho lit
tlo Jullen, who beat his tiny fingers
against tho door panel nnd laughed
gleefully up In his young father's face.
Little Jullen had come to stay.
About Carita? Tho city Is large.
PerhapB sho went back to tho ruffianly
husband, or, if notwell, it would not
be tho first time that the turbid yellow
river had been Intrusted with a secret.
Jullen Is a fine young fellow, an up

enough, Mrs. Carmlchlel Is not fond ol
him. Whether sho BUspccts what a

THE FUNNEL TRICK.
An Inlercntlnc 1'roblem DoTlseri
Jerry Lynch has finally learned the
funnel trick. He took It In two dosea
ono on ono evening and tho other
the next. Tho senator sauntered up
to the Bohemian club tho other day and
siw two or three of the younger mem
bers attempting a now feat, and h
watched them with Interest Ono of
them stuck a funnel In tho top of his
trousers, throw his head back, placed
a fifty-cent piece on his forehead nnd
tried to drop It into tho funnel by
slowly lowering his head. After all
had failed Jerry Insisted on trying It,
though all had tried to dissuade him
from attempting a feat too difficult for
them. Tho funnel was placed In tho
waistband of his trousers and he
threw back his head to recelvo the
coin on IiIb expansive brow. At that
Juncture a pitcher of Ice water was
emptied into the funnel, and by the
tlmo Jerry got through dancing tho
Jokers had vanished. Tho senator's
temper improved with dry ralmont,
and the next night at tho club he start
ed in to show a couple of friends tho
"It's this way," he explained, "you
put tho funnel In tho top of your pan
taloons, so, then throw your head
back, so, and wow!"
Again Jerry was forced to change his
raiment, and ho is not showing people
what ho knows about the funnel trick.

From the San Francisco Poet: "Now,
now, now; there, there; don't criticise
those white gloves because they've been
darned. Don't Jump on these poor old
black rosettes because they're a little
rusty," pleaded the country undertaker.
"For fifteen years they have been the
mainstay of a large and interesting
family. Yes, I know those gloves have
been washed and darned and stitched
till they look more like salt sacks than
gloves, but they still sell at the same old
price $1 per pair. Crape rosettes for
the pall-bearers still go on every bill
"When I first went Into business fif
teen years ago now this, of course, is
on the dead quiet I bought half a
dozen pairs of white cotton gloves for
25 cents, and I think tho crapo for
those robcttes cost 50 cents. Every
funeral brings me In ?G for gloves and
V for rosettes for the pall-bearers, and
in tho last fifteen years I think I have
realized about $6,500 on them, and I'vo
still got them almost as good as new.
Some day. when I can afford it, I'll buy
some now ones."
