"Anything on for tonight , Stanley ? "
"Not that I know of , Kirch , " answer-
cd Harvey Stanley , looking up from IIH !
Hutnple casoH. lie roprm'iitcd lU'inls
& Co. In tholr MontbuaKtern territory.
" .JiiKt got In last night and haven't had
time to Bee anybody yet. "
"Well , " exclaimed Kirch , lighting n
fresh cigar , "I'd like yonr help , then ,
for a few hours. There's n gang In
from the west , fresh from a meeting of
the Implement Dealers' association ,
uml we've got to entertain them to
night. I've orders to do the thing np
right ; no limit on the expense account. "
"Sure , " mumbled Stanley without re
moving his blue pencil from his mouth.
"Meet yon at thu I'alac6 hoteJ at din
ner. What show ? "
"The Alcazar. Pre'lticst btmth of cho
rus girls In town , and , If the men want
It , we'll get a few of them for the sup
per afterward. "
"All right , " replied Stanley absently ,
checking up his order list.
The overture was on when Harvey
Stanley stood In the rear of n box gass
ing past the guests of r.pinls & Co , at
the brilliant house. A popular musical
comedy with a star of national reputa
tion had called out a representative
house women in silks , laces , Jewels
ami Dowers and men In the smartest of
evening suits. It was a goodly world ,
and Stanley was glad to be in It once
more. The dull , small town life hi
which he had moved for three months ,
the primitive country Inns , the vapid
crossroads conversation all these fad
ed like an ugly dream. He was In his
clement once more , and he glanced ,
, ivlth a sense of pity , at the western
merchants who made up their party.
They wore the rough business suits In
. which they had traveled. That was one
reason why Stanley stood well In the
background. lie was in evening dress ,
and the contrast
The curtain rose to n blare of music ,
and thirty comely young women pi
Jl rouetted through the opening number.
Music , jokes , the flutter of draperies ,
the twinkle of high heels , and the cur
tain was clown on the first act.
As the applause died away one of
the western men said to Birch :
"Where do these managers get all the
pretty girls ? "
"From every part of the Union. It's
funny , but precious few of them are
city girls. They drift Into town , some
times deliberately looking for stage
, work , but oftcner with higher ideals ,
and they are forced to It for bread and
ibuttcr. There's many n little tragedy
In their lives too. Sometimes they
follow city fellows whom they've met
In their home town and who have filled
their silly brains with nonsense about
city life. And Instead of love's para-
disc they find despair. "
Again the curtain rose and the pag
eant moved before their eyes. Sud
denly Kirch whistled softly and touch
ed Stanley's arm.
"Lean forward a bit , Stanley , and catch
n glimpse of that little girl on the end
of the second row. Isn't she a peach ?
Look nt those velvet eyes and those
shoulders. Heavens , It's n shame to
smear a face like that with makeup.
She's new at the business , too , for
she's watching her neighbors and the
leader and has no time for chappies.
But she'll get over that In time. "
The comedian danced out In front of
the girls. A ripple of laughter drowned
Birch's next words , and he did not turn
to hear Stanley's answer.
The latter had taken one long look nt
the girl and then had sunk back in his
chair. He was not looking at the stage
now. Instead he was standing in an
old orchard , all gnarled trees and flut
v. tering pink white petals. And it was
quiet , so quiet that he could hear the
happy sigh the girl gave as their lips
parted , could feel the pulse In the slen
der arm clasped about his neck. And
the love light in her velvet eyes ! The
petals falling tenderly on her soft
brown hair !
He had meant to go back , but the
firm had changed hia route. He had
. written to her , was it twice or three
times ? And that last letter of hers ?
A hot flush swept over him. He had
never opened It because well , what
was the use ? He was never going
back to Leydenvllle.
Lightly tripping , gayly skipping.
The line of girls swung perilously
near the box , but she of the velvet eyes
( was watching a blondlncd young wo
man directly in front of her. Oh , If she
slipped on that square turn.
And in the back of the box a white
faced young man seemed to hear over
and over again :
"And Instead of love's paradise they
find despair. "
The curtain fell for the last time.
The orchestra burst into an inspiring
march. Birch was chatting jovially
iwlth his firm's guests.
"The manager of the house is n per
sonal friend of mine , and I've asked
him to bring a half dozen of the girls
over to supper. You'll flnd them rather
a Jolly lot. "
The westerners accepted the sugges
tion with good natured raillery. It
.would be something to tell with gusto
when they reached home , this supper
iwlth a group of pretty singers. One
man Jerked on his coat .with the re
"You're nil right , Birch , but don't
leave out that little peach on the end
of the second row. She's got the eyes
nil right. "
Stanley started as if stung. He grlp-
pcd the back of a chair and spoke to
Birch harshly : |
. "If it'B JuHt the Bame , Birch , let me
off the rcM of the owning , I'm n bit
dotio up. 1'erhapH It's grip , but I think
I'd hotter get around to the rooms. "
lie took hasty leave of the bor party
and hurried out Into the cold night air.
Hotly and brain seemed on flro. Around
the corner he dashed and straight up
to the stage entrance. A doorkeeper
held him back. Stanley thrust n bill
into the man's hand.
"I must see1 Miss Aldon. " She prob
ably had not thought to take a stage
name , he decided hastily and correctly.
"She's a cousin of mine , and I've n mes
sage of Importance. She must not leave
the theater without my Btolng her. "
He stood In the shadows of the wlngn ,
Kirch's cynical wortln and the western
er's light Jest intermingling in his tired
Presently the chorus girls trooped
from their big dressing room , She
was almost the last to leave , and she
sprang aside nervously as he rested
his hand on her arm.
"Mnr'nn. ' don't you remember me ? "
"Harvey ! Harvey ! "
Oh , the Joy of It and back of It the
pathos ! The doorkeeper heard It and
nulled grimly. Ho knew the excuse
had been a lie all the while , but then
he had the tip.
They were on the street now , a nice ,
dark , dismal street.
"Oli , Harvey , why didn't you answer
my letter ? "
"I never got It. " He Hod deliberate
ly. He would perjure his very soul
now to make her happy , to undo the
wrong he had done her. And how
great had that wrong boon ! Through
what had she passed In the last six
months ! He was afraid to learn.
"Oh. doarost. It has been so hard , "
she murmured , her small hand grip
ping his sloovo. "Hut every one said
It was the only thing I could do. They
can always make room for pretty girls
in the chorus , you know. Ktit If I had
known , If I could only tell you what it

"Don't don't say another word. I
never want to hear about it It
does not matter , now that I have
found you. Tomorrow you will leave
them do you understand , tomorrow
contract or no contract. We will bo
married. It's going to be love's para
dise after all. "
"Love's paradise ! " she murmured
questionlngly. Hut he did not answer ,
only held her closer to him as they
walked farther and farther away from
the gleam of the street lights , the glit
ter of the restaurants and the shouts
of the cabbies.
"Tad" Lincoln has long been number
ed among the historic boys of America.
He was the complete embodiment of
animal spirits , n warm hearted , fresh
faced youngster , a boisterous , rollick
ing and absolutely real boy , whose
pranks and companionship did much to
relieve the tremendous strain his father
suffered under while in the White
"Thousands who never saw the home
apartments of that gloomy building , "
writes Noah Krooks , "knew the tricky
sprite that brightened the weary years
which Lincoln passed in Washington.
Ills father took great interest in every
thing that concerned 'Tad , ' and when
the long day's work was done and the
little chap had related to the president
all that had moved him or had taken
up his attention during the daylight
hours and had finally fallen asleep un
der a drowsy cross examination the
weary father would turn once more to
his desk and work on into the night
Then , shouldering the sleeping child ,
the man for whom millions of good
men and women nightly prayed took
his way through the silent corridors
and passageways to his boy's bedcham
This grateful glimpse of the man who
bore the sorrows of the nation In his
own heart could 111 be spared from any
account of Lincoln's life in the White
House. "Tad" Lincoln did not long sur
vive his father. Ills death occurred In
July , 1871. Success. , ,

He was a very youthful looking man
and wore n natty opera hat and a
lengthy raglan which caused him to
be the cynosure of all eyes in the Arch
Etreet trolley car. It was probably the
first time that he had ever worn a
dress suit , and as he walked into the
car his painful embarrassment was no
ticeable. Many smiles flitted across
the passengers' features , and the young
fellow noticed each one and blushed
But more trouble was in otore. At

She paused here as her wandering
eye rested on the conspicuous young
man in the corner.
"Say , Ellen , " she said loudly and
with a giggle , "how would you like
that for a feller ? "
The young man left the car hurried
ly before it had reached the street
where he wished to alight. Philadel

The correct posture for sloop is to lie
on the right side , with the limbs stretch
ed out to their full length and the arms
either straight down by the body or in
any comfortable position provided they
are not raised above the head. The
mouth should bo closed , and all the
muscles of the body should be relaxed.
The lungs work with greater deliber
ation during the hours of sleep , and if
the arms arc raised above tbe head nt
this time and for any period the ac
tion of the heart drives the blood away
from the arms and sends it to the head ,
frequently making one very restless
when it does not prevent Bleep entirely.
'HAVE WOMEN INTUITION ?
Olio Writer Sit > n Tliry llnvti Never
Nlunvii It Iti l.llrrnliirr.
Literature Is the Hunt expression of
human thought. If women can lay
claim to a special faculty of Intuition ,
why do they not niunlfont It In their
writings ? Intuition , If It menus uny-
thing , means thu faculty that gets
down to the geriu of actions and char
acteristics ami focuses external traits
Into n central verity recognisable to
the general public. Now , there are
more female writers than male. No
woman poet has ever written mi In
evitable line , a line that ( lashes spon
taneously out of the unknown and casts
an Illuminating light upon thu abyss.
Woman has added practically nothing
to our stock of familiar quotations.
Take down your Kartlett or your an
thology , and you may be surprised to
flnd that from Mrs. Drowning to Mrs.
Meyncll women have never coined a
phrase which has parsed Into the com-
moil currency of speech. Mrs. Drown
ing has Indeed written fine lines , but
nothing of hers can be said to Jiavc be
come a household word.
Nor has any woman novelist created
nny character that Is generally recog
nized as typical. George Eliot has
come closest with her Tito Mclema
and Mrs. I'oysor. You would appeal
only to the educated few If you de
scribed a person as a Tito or a I'oysor.
Dut call a man a Don Quixote , a
Mlcawber , a Dogberry , a FalstafT , a
Colonel Newcome , a Dlllll , a I'arson
Adams or Hob Acres , call a woman a
Mrs. Malaprop , a Dccky Sharp , a Den-
trice , a Diana Vernon , a Meg Merrllles ,
and even the Illiterate will mentally
classify the Individual as you wish him
or her to be classified.
"Ah , but , " you say , "In real life wo
men are the true Intuitions. They size
up n man or a woman at a glance.
They are never mistaken when they
trust to their Instincts. "
I can only testify to my own experi
ence. I have not found that women's
snap Judgments of character are Im
bued with any special verity. They
form likes or dislikes quicker than a
man does because they are quicker on
the trigger of conjecture. They can
only be one of two things , right or
wrong. If time proves that they are
right , as they must be In 50 per cent of
cases , the right guess Is remembered
and treasured up by the slower minded
man as an extraordinary Instance of
Intuition. The wrong guess Is forgot-

was going mad.
