COFFIN WAS A BACK HUMSC
ta Pennsylvania Man Sold It and Will
Isaac Coffman of Hatton. Pa., has
sold a coffin he made many years ago.
He sold it not because he felt he would
.have no use for it, but because his
wife insisted that it was out of date.
Mr. Coffman Is nearing bis eightieth
birthday. He explained to a friend
that he constructed the coffin 20 years
ago. It was built of chestnut because,
as he put it, "Many's the time I have
sat beside a cheery blaze of-chestnut
logs and heard them crackle and burn
merrily. It makes such a homelike
blase that I picked it la prefernce to
other .woods. It was my desire to
have the coffin as cozy as possible,
and I rejected the frivolities which so
many persons affect in the matter of
coffins. In order to have It handy I
kept It In the garret But my wife
tells me that styles have changed, and
since I have accumulated a little for
tune she will not permit me to die un
less I consent to get an up-to-date
casket. To avoid trouble I agreed to
sell the old one. But at the same
time I think that the coffin which wa3
good enough for me in my poorer
days should satisfy me now, and I
shall always feel out of place ia the
METHODS ARE TOO STRENUOUS.
Why Yankee Salesmen Have Not Suc
ceeded in South America.
In the matter of salesmen abroad,
we must .have mea who not onljr speak
the language but who are also thor
oughly conversant with the customs
and idiosyncrasies of the people with
whom they deal, says the Engineering
Magazine. The South American, in
his buying as In almost everything
else. Is a most deliberate person as
well as a sensitive one. 'A salesman
-who will call. amotf a cigarette; talk
liaconsequently about the weather, the
theater and the faces, and answer
questions should any happen to be
asked rather than make assertions
about his goods, will outsell, five to
one, the liveliest hustler that ever
opened up a sample case. This is a
thing so contrary to the instinct of the
American salesman that, to date, in
his wanton disregard of It, he has con
stantly played Into the hands of his
more experienced European rivals.
"Tour Yankee drummers," says the
latter poiiteIy,'"are the greatest sales
men In the world in America."
Advance in Miacroscopy.
The wonders revealed by the ordi
nary' miscroscope are Increased a
hundredfold by a recent invention,
which enables the use of a high-power
lens as large as six inches In diameter
thus bringing the whole of objects
instead of details only under observa
tion. By this means a common house
fly fg magnified not la parts, but all
at once, till it appears to be as large
as an ostrich or a condor, and, being
inclosed in an open space, where it is
kept directly within the field of the
glass and yet has ample room, consid
ering its size, to move about and en
gage in its usual occupations, the op
portunity for studying it are immense
ly in advance of anything previously
enjoyed by scientists. Vast worlds of
microscopic life, hitherto only
dreamed of, are suddenly open to the
gaze of mankind, and discoveries of
Immense value can doubtless be made.
Speaking of Byron. I once owned
the first pair of shoes that he wore,
writes "The Lounger" in Putnam's.
They were given to my father by a
woman who had been the poet's
nurse. She had cutthem down to
fit the feet of a doll belonging to
one of her children. It must have
been a pretty good -sized doll, for
the shoes little soft things made of
braid were none too small for a
child. I gave them to the Players
because I knew that they would be
well taken care of (not because
Byron was a playwright), and to the
best of my knowledge and belief they
now repose under a glass case at IS
Why Letters Are Unwritten.
Why not keep up writing-desk sup
plies just as conscientiously as those
for the pantry? ask a writer. Few
households would get along a week
without sugar, salt or soap, yet how
many letters are unaaswered for the
lack of a good pea, a stamp or aa en
velope? It Is aot the expense, but
lack of thoughlTthatkaeps aa iasuM-
cleat or meager supply of the

Tuesday .-Spent the evening with
Mrs. Holeomb aad Mrs. Burton. Mrs.
Holcomb showed as soma fancy work
she Ik doing going to give It away.
She's awfully stuck on her;work. and
claims to have taken lessons, but ak
I told Mrs. Barton I'd be ashamed ta
have such a looking thing arjound the
house, much less give it away.
Wednesday. Went to .the matinee
with Mrs. Roberts' and ifra. Burton.
Mrs. Holcomb was going, but when
Mrs. Roberts asked mejf I was golag
and I said -yes, Mrs. Holcomb remem
bered she had another date she'haA
forgotten all about Don't see what,
made her act so to-day. She was
awfully disagreeable. Wa went up ia

Mrs. Burton semed to know almost
every woman in the house, aad' I
learned a lot of things aboat them.
Miss Browning sat downstairs with a
gentleman. Mrs. Burton said It was
funny a girl who claimed to be work
ing for a- living could get off to go to
a matinee, and with a man, at that.
Mrs. McCuen was there, aad she had
the loudest looking friend with her.
Saw lots of people I never expected
to find there. '

and Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. Stevens

all right with the handkerchiefs, bit
when it came to the flannels I w4s

and turned' on the steam. They dried,

Saturday. Mrs. Watson told me
they were out to the theater lat
alght and got home about 12, and that
some young woman In the building
had had a fellow and he was just leav
ing when they came In. -She didnjt
know who the girl was, for she didn't
see her, but she knew 'It was so, for
the fellow got out of the elevator just
as they got In. I don't see what they

Some Hat Lore.
With the ancient Greeks the hat
was. simply an appurtenance of the
traveler. The free citizen preferred
to go bareheaded and only put on his
broad-brimmed petasus for protection
against the sun when on a long jour
ney. Indeed, the uncovered head
was part of his dignity, for the slaves
and" workmen wore always a Had of
pointed skull cap, the pllus, which
therefore stood for n badge of servi
tude. Much the same scorn of
habitually covering the head prevailed
among the Romans. In England th?
hood was not finally given up until
the early, -part of the fifteenth ceay
Clothes You Can,t Drown In.
A Norwegian Inventor has patented
a suit of clothes which will protect
Its wearer against drowning. The
clothes are lined with a non-absorbent
material made of specially pray
pared vegetable fiber which without
being too .heavy will effectively hold
up the weight of a maa In the water.
Twelve ounces of the aew material
will. It Is claimed, save a person from
sinking. The Invention has beaa
tested with favorable results at
Chrlstianla. Successful trials were
also made with rugs made of the
same material, capable of supporting
two persons In the water.
