. FROM THE MAGAZ1NBS.
In one of the big stores the other
afternoon a etoopehouldered man with
-a faded brown beard was clawing over
the hats and trying them on, one after
another, without appearing to find any
to fit him.
"What size are you looking for?" aeked
one of the salesman.
"What size?" he said. "Somethin, I
kin wear. I reckon."
Of course; but what'Byour number?''
"You don't number a man when he
comes in here to buy a hat, do you?"
"Certainly not I mean what's the
number of the '"
"Don't you s'pose I'll know when I
come to a hat that 9tB me? I ain't no
spring chicken, young man. I've bought
hats 'fore this. You go on waitin' on
customers. I'll find what I'm lookin'
fur after a while. I've got plenty of
"So have I. Time is nothing to me.
I can stand hce and watch you trying
on hats, but it isn't necessary. If you
can tell rao what size of hat you wear,
I can give you half a dozen of that size
to try on. It will save you some trouble,
and won't be quite so hard on the as
sortment." The customer reflected.
"Well, that's reasonable," he 6aid.
-"Young man, I might as well tell you
the truth. I've clean forgot the size hat
1 wear. 1 never can remember it. I
know I wear a No. 9 shoe though. A
No. 9 hat would be about the right
thing, wouldn't it?" Chicago Tribune.
A woman arrested in a Paris suburb
for illegally setting off fireworks said in
court that she was merely celebrating
the anniversary of her husband's death.
"Now, ladies," said the chairman of
the convention, rapping with her gavel,
"remember, please, that we must have
order. I must ask you to refrain from
whispering during the progress of the
Still the low.sibilant sound from the
group of pretty heads that had got
togther in one corner of the hall con
tinued. The chairman looked annoyed and
rapped with her gavel more severely.
The group of pretty heads broke up,
and the whispering ceased in that
quarter, but over in the opposite side of
the hall a delegate was seen to lean
toward her neighbor, and the disagre
eable hissing was resumed.
"Is it possible," said the chairman,
"that I must repeat my request? You
will refrain from whispering, please."
The offending head nodded approv
ingly, but the whispering did not stop.
"If necessary," said the chairman,
with a touch of anger, "I shall become
personal in my requests. Will the del
egate from Boston kindly postpone her
private conversation with her neighbor
till the meeting is oves?"
The delegate from Boston straight
ened up in her seat and Hushed hotly.
"Is it possible," she exclaimed, "that
you meant me?"
"Certainly," said the chairman; "there
was no one else whispering at the
moment, I believe."
"But," said the delegate from Boston,
"I was only saying to my neighbor what
a splendid chairman you made, to Etop
the whispering of those ladies from Ohio
over there. 1 don't .see how you can
object to my sajing that."
"Wo will have no whispering on any
subject," taid the chairman, sternly.
And with that at least a dozen heads
in different parts of the hall bobbed
over toward their neighbors' desks, and
the sibilation grew into a prolonged hiss,
from which could plainly be distin
guished such expressions as "Served her
right!" "The idea!" "What a splendid

man's face, and she sat down, with a
mute signal to the secretary to go 'on
with the reading cf the minutes and let
the whisperers have their way. Buffalo
