It lias been said, and rightly,
that the atmosphere of a home,
the room empty of all but its
furnishings, silently proclaims
the character of its inhabitant.
A tew volumes, well selected, a
few pictures of real artistic merit,
simple though they may be, be
speak to the observer, cultuie
and refinement as plainly as
crowded shelves indiscriminately
filled disclose the immitator or
the untutored.
It is as equally true that the
surroundings stamp the individ
ual, not only the immediate sur
roundings, but the section of
country in which he lives, stamps
liini with its own mark, recogniz
able by the keen observer.
In a recent visit to the east,
the writer found hourly demon
strations of tlie above statement,
for although we are one people,
one nation under one flag, we are
nevertheless divided into sections,
with sectional interests, sectional
tastes, and oddest of all, a sec
tional language- Sectional in
terests were plainly shown when
every clerk, street car conductor,
or vendor of any sort, would ap
oligize, if in changing money he
had to give more than a dollar in
silver and a silver dollar is an al
most unknown piece of money.
It certainly is not in circulation
only as the west carries it east.
During a month’s stay in that
section, the only silver I saw I
had in my own purse.
To enjoy the sectional lan
guage one need stay but a day in
Atlantic City and listen, for this
beautiful and popular resort,
standing as it does, on the coast
of the big, solemn ocean, visited
by thousands of people, is a city
of all nations, all sections and all
people. A fact fully appreciated
even by the news boys, for from
every corner on the famous
“Board Walk’’ can be heard,
“Name your town, I have your
papers.” On hearing that one
beautiful evening, when we had
settled ourselves to watch the
restless ocean under a placid
moon, and the restless people as
well, a certain little Nebraska
boy hurried ofT to purchase a pa
per. He soon returned and with
just a touch or impatience in his
voice remarked, “I asked for a
Falls City Tribune and all I could
get was a Lincoln paper. ” Little
Nebraska was disappointed and
he was certain that newsboy had
failed to appreciate the possibili
i ties of his vocation, for he said,
“It the State Journal is worth 15
cents the Tribune is worth a
quarter. ’
By using one’s eyes and ears at
such a place, there is certain fac
iuation in selecting the real from
the false and the genuine from
the counterfeit. And listen, can
you not tell the Philadelphian
who goes “daown t’ Atlantic”
from shop, bank or rush of busi
ness, on Saturday, to enjoy the
invigorating air. one day out of
every week, and the Bostonian
who “cannt” breakfast on a Sun
day morning without his baked
beans and brown bread: and the
one from “Baltimore” or “Yohk
State” who has the tune and ac
cent on one who is monarch of
all he surveys and has pre-empted
all in sight, even the blue sky
above him

the interior smiles at the Yankee

for each state, even within the
narrov/ limits of little Rhode Is

Dignified, stately Maine pat

ant as to Chicago’s colloquialism.
Maine exclaims “the idear,” for
to him the ocean is very much in
And Kentucky, looking on, re
marks “that is the bluest ‘waiali’

softening of her “a’s” agrees.

and to the interested listener it
becomes a pleasant pastime to
speculate on one’s locality from
bis accent.
Now an then we met one from
Nebraska, dear, fitful Nebraska,
that is either wet or dry, hot or
cold as the mood strikes her, l?ut

those same tields and valleys are
to look at.
But with all the lamination of
the east with its natural beauty
and things that belong to the
years of yesterday, with its
crowds and evidences of wealth,
and all these will charm for a
time, the best part was in turn
ing westward to a land with no
yesterday but with energetic peo
ple feeling today with events
that make history turning west

of Nebraska that held the spot

The little count was trying to
make a good impression.
“Ah,” he whispered, suavely, “I
should like to take you coaching
through our castle grounds. I am
an expert handler of the ribbons.”
The sensible heiress smiled.
‘■Indeed!” she replied, sweetly.
“How lucky!”
“Lucky P”
“Yes, if you don’t succeed in find
ing a rich wife you can easily obtain
a position at some ribbon counter.”
Following is from an exchange:
“Beware of theologians who have
no sense of mirth; they arc not alto
gether human.”
“Keep your chin up.”
“Don’t take your troubles to bed
with you; hang them on a chair with
your trousers or drop them into a
glass of water with your teeth.”
“I am sure I do not know what
will become of Bessie,” said Bessie’s
mamma. “She came home from
Sunday school yesterday crying.
When T asked her what she was cry

“ ‘Because poor Eve never had any
