A Tailor Confc tH Trick * of Uio "AIIaUIT
A downtown tailor who charges
large prices for his clothes has profit
ed by the system of the misfit clothing
stores this winter , and on the strength
of It he has had work enough to keep
his employes busy all winter , says the
New York Sun. "Just after the hol
idays , " he said , In explaining his ;
scheme , "my business Is usually dull.
I had a lot of good hands whom I
didn't want to discharge , and I thought
I -would employ them In making up
overcoats that would fit the average
man and take my chances of dispos
ing of them. I have a lot of regular
customers who did not get new over
coats this year. I had the measure
ments of a number of such men In
mind when I had the coats cat out.
When one was finished I dropped a ,
note to a man whom I knew it would
fit , telling him I had a misfit coat
which I thought would suit him. He
came around promptly and bought it
for $65. I would have made him the
same coat to order early in the sea
son for $70 , but that wouldn't have
pleased him half so much as getting a
misfit that just fitted him. Men are
just as fond of bargains as women. I
could afford to sell the clothes which
I made in this way cheaper than If
they had been made to order during
the rush season. The men worked on
them between regular jobs. Nearly
all the clothes which I have thus far
manufactured on speculation I have
sold for good prices. Men who wouldn't
order a coat have bought coats which
they have thought were misfits , but
which , in reality , were made after their
own measr.rements. Each of these
customers has felt that I was doing
him a favor in notifying him of the

malee , president of the Wallingford
Golf Club , society leader and promi

dark evening ran at Ethel Bartholo
mew the of
, sixteen-year-old daughter
another prominent business man , and
cried "Booh ! " to startle her. He fright
ened the girl in real earnest , and when
he said , "Why , don't you know rno ,
Ethel ? It's all a joke , " the girl was in
a dead faint. The fainting fit was
followed by an attack of hysterics.
With Miss Bartholomew at the time
was her school chum , Clara Booth.
Parmalee apologized for his act , and
took the two girls to Miss Booth's
home. Ethel Bartholomew did not re
cover there. The hysterical attacks
continued , and according to the papers
in a suit for $5,000 damages that has
been brought by the girl's father ,
James Bartholomew , against Parma-

prostration , and lies in a critical con

never recovering her health and san

friends have tried to pacify Bartholo
mew , but the father will listen to no
peace overtures. The formal suit for
damages was filed to-day.

West Point correspondent New York
Herald : Residents of Rugertown , a
suburb of the post , are interested in
a weird concert which was given one
night this week in the parlor of the
home of Andrew Kuhn. a private of
the army service detachment. The
performance did not begin until just
as the old clock in the tower of the
academic building had struck the hour
of midnight , the artist was invisibly
and ghostly sonatas , symphonies and
the like were rendered in wonderful
style. It seems that Kuhn , who is an
old resident of the post , had retired
with his family for the night , when
they were aroused by very loud and
thrilling piano playing. The sound
seemed to be coming from the parlor.
Upon their entering the room they
found it quite deserted. The piano lid
was closed , but some invisible agency
was sounding the keys. They were
badly frightened. It might have been
a cat , but the piano was closed , or it
might have been rats nibbling the
strings , but the strings have been
found to be uninjured.
A Glimpie at
The general public , even in London
itself , needs to be told what Lloyds is ,
and so it will be better to state at the
outset that it is the greatest center of
the shipping interest all over the world
and it is surprising that , unlike its
near neighbor , the Stock Exchange , it
is so little known. Mr. Frederick M.
Kenward contributes to Harmsworth's
Magazine an exceedingly interesting'
article descriptive of the old institu
tion. Lloyds owes its name to its
founder , a. Mr. Edward Lloyd , the pro
prietor of a coffee house at Tower
Street , the earliest mention of which is
about 1668. It was to this coffee house
that persons connected with shipping
used regularly to resort ; and Mr.
Lloyd , who seems to have been a man
of considerable enterprise , took care to
collect all news and information he
possibly could in connection with his
customers' business until his coffee
house gradually came to be looked
upon as the headquarters oC-alljmari-
time business , and
