and the Big Race
My "string" was getting in shape.
7t consisted of seven horses willed to
Ime by my uncle Owpn of Kentucky,
,and brought to me by his old trainer,
',Murf Higginbottom. No one of my
.family knew anything of the whole
Bad affair, and I was kept busy dodg

'Peaches filly will show us how a Kaln
itucky boss can get real buss, sub!"
iMurf chuckled one morning when I
dropped in to see him.
' "I catch your words, Murf. but the
meaning is away to the fritz," I an
swered; "what's doing?"
"I have entered this here Peaches
filly for the Culmination Stakes, to be
run ovah the Futurity co'se, sub!"
"Are you handing me a line of bo
gus conversation?" I asked in sur
prise. "Yo' all left these here matters in
my hands, sub!" Murf went on, calm
ly, "and I certainly have to prove that
to' Uncle Owen knew something
about hossflesh. I only ask you. suh.
to stand by and prepare to see the
dust move that's all. suh!"
"Count me in, Murf; I'll follow the
"band wagon till tbe bass drum springs
a leak!" I chipped in.
"Only two of these have worked out
lo my liking, sur, and I'm for selling
the othah live, if it .suits yo' all."
"Do so, Murf." I said, "and use the
money just as though it were handed
to you by Uncle Owen. Which colt
khall you keep besides Peaches?"
"The ono yo' all fastened to that
there fool name Shoemaker, suh," he
answered so earnestly that I laughed
for ten mintues.
The days rolling by found me con
stantly with Murf and the two colts.

tbe long dissertation I was handed
daily by oluble Uncle Peter. Every
blessed tip he had given me on the
market proved to be the real goods.

to the good.
'. Instead, however. I was down to
the little bundle of small bills other
wise known as my income, sufficient
in itst-lf to keep the wolf fiom eating
the knob off the door, and no more.
In the morning of the day on which
tlio ' Culmination" was to be run.
Clara J. said. "John. Aunt Martha and
1 are goinc; to town today. We're go
.ing to meet Alice Gray and some of
aiv girl friends and we'll all take
luncheon at the Waldorf. Please, do
join us there, won't you?"
" "Impossible, little woman." I said:
"I simply must attend a ery import

"I'm beginning to hale that old
Wall Street." she pouted; "you've
been so quiet and so preoccupied of
late. Keally. John, you should take
a day off!"
"Soon." I answered; "but not too
soon." and we parted good friends.
At' the track 1 found Murf. anxious
but not excited.
"That there little Peaches filly may

said slowly, as he went back to the
1 couldn't dig up nerve enough to
dope Peaches to win. Even if she
looked an oil-painted cinch I wouldn't
have bet a dollar. Clara J. had my
promise not to spend another case
note on a horse, and I wouldn't break
my promise to tbe best girl of all
no. not even for her namesake.
I roamed around like an uneasy
spirit. Just to show how popular I
was with myself. 1 determined not to
flash my presence near tho grand
standthe far field for mine.
Just before the great event I edged
up close to the fence with every nerve
in my system bobbing around and
carrying weight for age.
In the person of the rail-bird next
to me I discovered a friend, old Uncle
Harry Carroll, late of Carroll County.
Marvland; highly colored, but one of
the "best cooks that ever peeled a ter
rapin. Old Uncle Carroll worked for a
neighbor ot ours near Ruraldene, and
he managed to get down to our train

interested in the colts.

ing, seething mass of horseflesh. The
sunlight seemed to rush after them,
eager to dance on their glossy backs.
while all the world stood still, listen
ing, listening to the musical thunder
of the hoofbeats.
A hundred thousand eyes were fix
ed intently on the living river of
racers an army of eyes watching
eagerly for the horse which would
first give token that it was being
piloted by the god Success.
I Jut where was Peaches! There!
there In the center of- the storm
tossed mass, her pretty head straight
out toward the goal, her eyes darting
forth tbe fire of a hundred famous
ancestors; she seemed a sea-bird dip
ping to the wave and rising all foam
bedecked to meet the next.
Leaning far over her arched neck
was Spuds, whispering kindly cheer
into ears that hearkened well: "Go

On they flew, while now from fifty
thousand throats hoarse cries of en
couragement were flung upon the
winds of evening to be carried echo
ing away on the clouds of dust which
arose lazily from the track.
By my side old Uncle Carroll rode
an imaginary horse with all the vigor
of youth. The frenzy of the moment
was In his blood, and his age-dimmed
eyes, screwed into little points of
sight, followed the every undulation
of his choice!

With the rush of an angry wind
across a starless night the horses
roared by the outposts where we
stood, and through the clouds of dust
I could see the jockeys preparing

POOR TAILOR'S MANY TRIALS
Is Supposed to Take Imperfect Anato
my and Shape Garments to Pro
duce Perfect Figure.
Men tailors have trouble with shoul
ders, waistbands and legs, but legs are
the worst. There Isn't one man in ten
who can make an affidavit that he is
neither knockkneed nor bowlegged.
rnt-fr.w- ctm'eht lees are rare. It's
an art to shape fabrics over bowlegs
so that they will not show and no joke
to hide the bends of knock-knees.
When a man begins to take on
weight It shows first at the belt line,
then on the shoulders and upper arms.
Later it gets down to the legs. In the
meantime the tailor has his trouble in
keeping his customer from looking ton
heavy. The tailor is supposed to take
an imperfect anatomy and shape gar
ments over it with such nicety as to
produce a superb figure. It's a trying
Legs that are overlong are sources of

be dropped an inch or two in cases
like this. There are knees which are
50 per cent, larger than they ought to

hard to hide. Then there's the thigh
three times larger at the upper end
than at the other. Men creatcH on
this model ought to be permitted to

"that the speeches made at political
meetings are all very near alike, but
to get something different is the prop

"It puts me in mind of a case of a
woman who appeared before a certain
magistrate, and when asked her age
fihe said 30 years old. The judge
looked at her and said: 'Look here,
madam, weren't you here before me
five years ago. and did you not tell me
then that you were 30 years old?' The
woman said that was so, and the judge
asked her what she meant by toming
before him and telling an untruth.
"Tbe woman replied: 'Well, you see.

women who do not believe in saying

Has Hickory Teeth.
Frank Forbis is the oldest mail car
rier in the county, and perhaps tho
oldest in this part of the state. He
is ninety years old and has lost threo
teeth, and has worn false teeth made
out of seasoned hickory cut so they
fit around the other teeth. They last
for several years, and when they
wear out he cuts out some more, and
he claims they beat the teeth the
dentists make. We think the old
man ought to have a pension, as he

It is a proof of tbe fact that ideas
are stronger in men's minds than they
used to be that King George can wear
a bowler hat and a loud suit with
out being dethroned; he would only
embarrass us were he to appear in
the regal garments of the kings of
an earlier age. And what in the name
of wonder should we think o him If
he wore a waistcoat formed of an
embroidered royal standard? Yet
such things, were once as natural as
a Norfolk jacket. London Truth.

My sister and I wish to haTe some
caling cards engraved. I used to hear
quite frequently the saying: "Never
give yourself a title." Is that still
in force, or is it proper for me to have
my cards engraved: "Miss Clara Helen
Mischler?" My sister is the older. I
suppose hers should be just "Miss
Mischler. Can you give me an Idea
of how a progressive dinner is con
ducted how many courses and what
is served with each? For instance, for
the soup course, is just one kind of
soup served? CLARA.
What you have heard does not ap
ply to visiting cards for young wom
en. The prefix "Miss" is always used,
to omit it is very bad form. A progres
rive dinner is arranged by each host
ess assuming the responsibility of one
course, how many to be decided by
those who give it. I think four or
five ample. Only one soup is served,
but oysters may precede it, adding an
other course; then the meat course,
the salad and dessert. After dinner
coffee with bonbons or cheese and
crackers may be still another course.

sketch and diagrams one practical so
lution of this difficulty will be found,
and it can be carried out with little
trouble and at no great expense.
In the fust place, two three-fold
clothes horses should be obtained and
thin bars of wood nailed in upright
positions to the parallel bars of the
horses. A glance at the s!:etch will
explain this. Next, two pieces of
board should be firmly nailed to the
nursery wall, at a distance apart equal
to the width of two of the divisions
of one of the horses. The horses can
then be fastened with hinges to these
pieces of wood fixed to the wall, and
diagram "A" illustrates this.
Tapes should be attached to the
posts at further sides of the horses,

while on a visit in Canada. He has

Regarding Party Calls.
If one accepts an invitation to a
party from a lady who has not called
on you is it necessary and proper to
make the usual party call?
I have attended a number of parties
where the hostess has not called on
me, and I am undecided as to whether
I owe a party call, in such cases.
MRS. G. P.
If the hostess enclosed her card with
her invitaticn, that is equal to a per
sonal call; also if she explains to you
that she intended to call before her
party, that is sufficient, and you pay
the call. If neither of these apolo
gies were made I would accept the in
vitation, and you do not owe an after
call if you go.
