London Truth : From the evidence re
ported of a recent divorce suit some light
is thrown upon the kissing In n boarding
houso. A Mr. Pye sought n divorce from
-Mrs. - 1'yo on the ground that nil the
boarders In the house whcro the pair
lived had drifted Into the luibit of kissing
Mrs. 1'yo. Ucru is a Mr. Dcmnsy'a evi
dence :
"Did you ever see Thompson kiss Mrs.
Tye ? "
"Lots of times ; and when I did not sco
him I heard him. There wns a plaintive
Bobbing gurgle about It that reminded
me of the exhaust of a bath-tub ; it could
be hoard all over the house. "
"When did Thompson kiss Mrs. Pyo ? "
"Whenever ho had a chance. The
only tlmo that ho did not kiss her was
when ho was not there. "
"Who did kiss her then ? "
"I did ; I liked her myself. "
"Did not Mr. Pyc object ? "
"Why should ho ? I don't object to his
kissing her : there was nothing objectionable -
able about It ; It was a mere friendly sal
utation. "
"How did you come to kiss Mrs. Pyo ? "
"I put my arms around her neck aud
kissed her in the usual way. "
"Did she ask you to do so ? "
"Well , 1 noticed that no matter how
hmny times she and Thompson kissed be
fore ho went out , she never got enough
to last until ho came back , for as he
opened the door they were at it again ; so ,
when ho was away , I kissed her moro as
n matter of accommodation than any
thing else. "
"Whore was Mr. Pjo ? "
"O , he was nowhere in particular. "

The Teacher's Lot.
'Tls now the boy In school
Doth of hate the teacher's rule ,
And think of little else than outdoor fun ;
And there Is cause to fear ,
From all that ono can hear ,
Tne tcaciier's lot Is not a happy one.
When In the afternoon ,
The giddy circus tune
Is hoard , and all the scholars want to run ;
When calliope doth sound ,
And monkey go around , o
Tlio teacher's lot la not a happy onei
Wtion In n distant Hold
Boys see the batters wield
Their little bats and for the bases run ;
And when they fret and pout ,
And wish that school was out ,
Tne teacher's lot's a most unhappy one.
. And when they think how fine
"i'would bo with hook anil line ,
To sit and Mali beneath then leu warm sum ;
Full well do I know then ,
And say It now again ,
They make the teacher'g lot no happy one.
Vlyidly Itecnlllnfc the Incident.
Washington Critic : They wcro over in
the camp last evening , talking about
military matters , and war ana so on , and
the talk drifted around to personal brav
ery , and finally some one brought up the
Buoioct of presence of mind in danger.
"That reminds mo , " said the colonel ,
"of an accident that happened when I
vras but a lad. J was very fond of crows'
nesting. Ono day 1 discovered a nest in
the very top of a lofty bull-pine , fully
ono hundred feet high. Up I swarmed.
In tha nest wore four young crows and
onn OCR. it was the work of a minute to
wring the young crows' necks and throw
thorn out. Then placing the egg in my
mouth for convenience , commenced my
journey down. It seems but yesterday , "
said the colonel , softly. "I looked up ;
the beautiful blue sky was above mo and
the crows , whoso nest 1 had despoiled ,
were wheeling in short circles , uttering
angry cries. Suddenly , without an in
stant's warning , the limb on which I was
resting broke and I fell ninety feet from
the top ! I lived a hundred lives in that
ono moment ! " The colonel's volco
trembled , lie brushed his hand across
his eyes.
"What , you foil ninety feet , colonel ? "
exclaimed a young subaltern.
The colonel gazed nt him compas
sionately. "No , you young ignoramus.
I was ninety feet from the top when I
fell ; consequently I fell about ton feet.
Hut the jolt I got broke that egg. Dab I
1 can taste it yet. "
The colonel gazed around suggestively ,
and ho got something to take the taste
out of his mouth. Aud they all bad

To bet or not to bet ? that is the question ;
Whether 'tis better on the draw to lay two
Ana lose the per cent I see bctore me
Or to raise thu bet with a Koodly sum
And , by bluiliug , steal the pot ?
To bet , to bluff or more , and by standing pat
to win the not
Against thieo jacks the dealer dealt himself
From the bottom ; 'tis a confiscation
Devoutly to be wished. To bet , to bluff-
To bluff 1 perchance bo caught ; ay ! there's
the rub.
For If I do he's sure to go ono better :
And do not catch , maycall on three of a kind ,
Ho let mo pause ; there's the respect
That always make pat hands a source of
For who would lay two pair , a four card flush ,
Or e'en ace hluh against a timid man's
Two-card draw , thieo Johns In hand , did ho
But know that standing pat would win the
With a goutlo raise ? Who would lay his hand
To tumo and sweat when his opponent blutls ,
llut that the dread of something better.
An unexpected flush against whoso color
No two pair called was ever known to win ,
Makes him rather wish to hold the dust he
Than run against a hand he knows not of.
Thus , poker does make cowards of us all ,
For there the virtue of a modest full
KIsos far above three wanson bullets.
And four laughing twos beats any lull
That ever dared to lill. Hut to pass a bluff
And see a four-card Hush cast on the board
Doth stir the wrath of any pair of kings ,
In whoso proud faltli wo next tlmo call three
trays ,
And lose the cause of Ion.
lie Was Not a Masher'
Now York Mall and Express : Yester
day afternoon two ladies , who were pas
sengers OH a south-bound Broadway car ,
alighted in front of a big dry goods
store. Just after they loft , a
who had been seated next them noticed
a plethoric purse on the scat. He picked
it up , jumped from the car and hastened
after the ladies , who had disappeared
within the store. After a brief search
ho located the ladies at the silk counter.
Ho approached , and , raising his hat ,
said :
"Ladies , I was sitting next you in a
Broadway car "
"Sir , " exclaimed the youngest of the
adies , "what doyou mean by this im
pertinence ? "
'I did not mean to bn impertinent ;
only I thought you might like to
'I would like to know nothing from
you , sir. If you address mo again I will
call the iloor walker and have you ar

"All right , 1 found a purse nfior you
left the car , but if you don't want it I
don't care. "
The gentleman turned to walk away.
The lady felt in her pocket and a sudden
hango came ever her face.
"Oh , I have lost my purse. I am so
much obliged to you. I had nil the
money for my summer dresses in It. I
don't Know how to thank you enough. "
After she had identified the property
the gentleman returned it with a sardonic

Woman's Sphoro.
That woman is extending her sphere of
action , if not of usefulness , no oue can
doubt. Susan Marian Saltor'mother ' of
four children , is a Kansas mayor , and
several women are serving in nor board
of alrtormen. A Now Hampshire police
justice has appointed a young woman as
clerk of hi.s court ; another is a niistico of
the peace in Wyoming ; moro than forty
women held ollico as legislative clerks
last winter ; a sturdy matron is pilot on a
Lake Champlaiu steamer , and it would
bo impossible to say how many thousands
are "boss" in their own households. It
looks , indeed , as if the coming woman
might be boss all around.
San Francisco Girls.
Oakland Tribune ; Thirty years ago
marriageable girls were as scarce in San
Francisco as white crows ; now the mar
ket is overstocked , and anxious mothers
watch with sinking hearts.vear after year
roll over their daughters' heads without
bringing the right man to the front. It
is not that our girls are less beautiful
than the rest of their sex. for in this they
excel. It is not a lack of sensibility , for
most San Francisco girls are as generous
and as amiable as can bo. No , it is their
utter usolcssness , love of dross , and
hatred and ignorancojof all that upper-
tains to domestic economy , which scares
the young man of the present day , and
the mothers are to blame.
Thron KinilH of Girls.
Catharine Cole in New Orleans Picay
une : I know the girl who is simply
pretty. Well , and is not that enough.
Once upon a time a distinguished New
Orleans beau was besieged by a fnir maid
and n homely maid , who pressed the
claims of intellect versus beauty. The
homely girl exclaimed : "O , you will
surely give your voteMr. D .in favor
of intellect ; beauty is only skin deep , 3'ou
know. " "Deep enough for me , my dear ;
deep enough for me , " answered the ir
repressible gallant. And so it is for most
of us. A pretty girl may drop her final
g's , not own an r in all her vocabulary ,
bo as vapid as a shallow little stream
purling down the hillside , with an
cnternal smile ou her red lips , a glint of
laughter in her young eye. She is pretty ,
and she knows it , and that is almost
enough. i5ut after a time there will como
n day when the girl who was only pretty
will stand by and look on at the triumphs
of the girl who was wise as well as
pretty ; who fitted her mind to accord
with the graces of its beautiful casket ,
Her few friends may bo faithful to her.
Her ono true lover may still bo fond of
her , for it is not easy to uproot love , but
their fondness is tempered with regret
and disappointment , and when the toft ,
eyes dim , and the round arms shrivel ,
and the satin chuuic is an etched picture
of lifo's vanity and time's failure , the
poor girl who was only pretty turns her
poor , scarred face to the wiill ; there Is
no welcome lamp of intelligence lighted
in the blue windows of her .soul dull ,
Inert , uncultivated. Skin-deep beauty
was not deep enough after all.
The gushing girl is a ninoteenlh cen
tury production. She gitrglcs from the
time she opens her eyes in tho.mornintt
until she says amen to the Lord'at night
and puts her Huffy little head ujion the
pillow. She says "thanks awfully" for
"I thank you. " She thinks the grand ,
lugubrious music of the "Stabat Slater"
"to sweet for anything , " A kitten with
its eyes as yet unopened , the Niagara
Falls and Mr. Gladstone alt are "just too
Utterly charming anil lovely lor any
earthly use. " Her adjectives are all in
the supcrlativo. She will gush over a
pumpkin , over her sister's now baby ,
over a doggerel rhyme , over everything
she sees , everything she hears , over
everybody she knows. If she is hero to
night she will say to mo as she docs of the
weather as she did ot her new bonnet-
that I am either "simply horrid. " But
then she is young she is impressionable.
She is full of .something which she thinks
is sentiment. Lot her hug her neighbors'
hablos and her brother's kittens , and ki&s
thn colllo puppy and adore the now min
ister. It is all gush. It Is tha innocent ,
light-hearted gush of a girl. Lot her
frolichomn youth have Its lllng. In a
little while she , too , will join the ranks
of the lookers-on , and will have her ( ling
at that sillv , giggling gusher , to whom
everything Is "sweet , ' "cute , " or "cun
ning , " or "just too awfully lovely. "
There is n girl , and I love to think on
her and talk ot her , who comes in late
when there is company , who wears ti
prcttv little air of mingled responsibility
and a'uxloty with her youth , whom the
others seem to depend on and look for
many comforts. She is the girl who
helps mother. In her own homo she is a
blessed little saint and comforter. She
takis unfinished tasks from the tired
stiff lingers that falter nt their work ; her
strong youth figure Is a staff upon which
the gray-haired.white faced mother leans
and is rested. She helps mother with the
spring sewing , with the week's mending
with a cheerful conversation and con
genial companionship that some girls do
not think worth while wasting on only
mother. And when there comes a day
that she must bend , as girls must often
bond , ever the old worn out body of
mother lying unhcudful in her coffin ,
rough hands folded , her long disquiet
merged in rest , something very sweet
will oo mingled with her loss , and the
girl who helped her mother will Hud a
benediction of peace upon her head and
in her heart.
The girl who works God bless her is
another girl whom I know. She is brave
and active. She is not too proud to earn
her own Hvlncr , nor ashamed to bo caught
At her daily task. 'She is studious aud
painstaking and na.tlont. She smllos nt
you from behind counter or desk. Tliorc
is n memory of her sown Into each silknn
gown. Slio Is like n beautiful young
mountaineer already far up the bill , tiud
thu sight of her should bo n flno inspira
tion for us all. It Is an honor to Know this
Uirl to bo worthy of her regard. Her
hand may bo stained with factory grease
or printer's ink , but It is an honest hand
and a helping hand. It stays misfortune
from many homes , it Is the one shield
that protects many a forlorn little family
fr < ? m the alms house and asylum brave ,
pollto , refined , ambitious ! thosouth is the
rightful homo of the girl who works Uod
bless her.
No Use for the Furniture.
A connlo that had made up their minds
to sail forth on the troublous waters of
the marital ocean , says the Philadelphia
Press , dropped in a well known store to
sclent the furniture necessary for the
comfortable equipment of their house
hold ark. Thu lady had evidently been
deluded into the idea that her prospective
follow voyager was possessed of some
means , therefore she was somewhat taken
aback when ho , after the work of se
lection hud been completed , turned to the
salesman and inquired as to how much
money was required to bo paid down
upon such a bill of goods and now favor
able their terms were in regard to
the payment of the remainder. The
lady was , for the moment , dumbfounded
at the revelation implied by her compan
ion's Interrogative , and without waiting
for the salesman's comprehensive eluci
dation of the linn's liberal provision for
such contingencies turned upon her
would-be lessor half , and , with a voice
that sent a chill into the marrow of his
bones , said : "Look hero , George , doyou
mean to say that you have not thu money
to pay for this furniture outright ? "
Oi'orge reluctantly admitted that his ex
chequer was not Biifllciently plethoric to
give such an extravagant manifestation
of exiromo wealth. "Then I guess you
had bnttcr wait awhile , for you will have
no immediate need of the furniture so far
as J am concerned , " and she waltzed out
of the store , leaving the crestfallen tar
get of her indignation to his own sad
thoughts and the consolatory olliccs of
the sympathetic salesman.
