For Those Who Smoke.
The great poiut lu pipe smoking Is to
lenra to smoke slowly. Wheu this hab
it Is acquired , the full flavor of the to
bacco v-ill always be eujoyed , every
smoke will be a cool one , aud tongue
burning will be unknown. It is , how
ever , very hard for nervous people to
smoke slowly. We know of cases where
smokers have tried for a score of years
to check their smoking speed without
success. They probably did not begin
to make the effort early enough in their
smoking careers. With good tobacco
and a root pipe the slow smoker at
tains a degree of pleasurable enjoy
ment In smoking of which the rapid
smoker has not an inkling.
Perhaps all smokers do not know that
It makes no difference in the flavor of
pipe tobacco how many times a pipe
goes out. A cigar which is allowed to
go out once has Its flavor ruiued and
Is most appreciably termed a butt. A
pipe , however , tastes , if anything , bet
ter for going out.
Fastidious smokers always have at
least two pipes at hand and never fill
one 'until It has entirely' cooled off.
This Is a help toward cool smoking
aud reasonable life In a pipe. A good
test by which to tell if you are smok
ing too fast is to hold the bowl In your
hand. If it Is too hot to do so , then
you may know your speed Is too great.
The Slav and Woman.
Abhorrent even to the strongest
"Slavophile" Is the position occupied
by woman In the family and in social
life. To escape the charge of prejudice
I shall quote a few proverbs current
among the southern Slavs a few out
of many hundreds :
The man is the head ; the woman is grass.
One man is worth more than ten women.
A man of straw is worth more than a. woman ol
Let the dog bark , but let the woman keep si
He who does not beat his wife is no man.
"What shall I get when I marry ? " asks a boy
of his father. "For jour wife a stick ; for jour
children a switch. "
Twice in his life is a man happy once when he
marries and once when he buries his wife.
And the woman sings , in the Russian
folksong which-I have freely trans
Rove me true and lee me quick ,
Pull my hair and use the stick.
Although there are love songs of an
other kind , in which woman is praised
for her charms , she becomes virtually
a slave as soon as she marries , and the
little poetry of the folksong does not
accompany her even to the marriage
altar. She is valued only for the work
she can do In a household and for the
children she can bear , and should this
latter blessing be denied her her lot
becomes doubly pitiable , and she often
seeks release by suicide. Outlook.
Naming the White House.
Why is the president's mansion at
Washington called the White House ?
It has been so called for years and
years , and now no one thinks of using
any other name , although "executive
mansion" is the official term. The
name White House is a reminder of
the second war with England. Aug.
24 , 1814 , the British army captured
Washington and burned the public
buildings , the president's mansion be
ing among those to suffer. It was
damaged to some extent , and to hide
the fire stains it was painted white ,
and white it has been painted every
year or two since.
The home of Washington's mother
was called the "white house , " and this
may have suggested the name , but the
fact that the mansion was so assidu
ously painted white after the war of
1S12 doubtless brought the term into
A Glasgow cabby once had as a fare
an Inverness minister and his wife.
He had to drive them through the poor
er districts of the city , and on reaching
their destination the minister , at the
same time handing cabby his legal
fare , asked :
"Why are there so many poor people
in this city , cabman ? "
Jehu looked hard at the parson for a
minute before he replied :
"Well , sir , I'm no verra sure ; but , ye
see , maist o' the poor folk drive cabs ,
and tips are scarce here. " London An
"BHtherby's restaurant has the slow
est service I ever saw , " said the gentle
man with the gloomy brow.
"How's that ? " asked the individual
with the overworked smile.

I had to wait so long that they brought
