A FAMILY GROUP.

I have just heurJ a story or two
very characteristic of Harry Lehr,
which would have been more pat in the
telling before he married and reformed
somewhat, but arc too good to be lost
altogether. It seems that he, llrs.
Stuyvesant Fish and two or three other
intimes were dining with Mrs. Herman
Oelrichs, and after one or two courses
were served, Mrs. Fish, with her fa
mous bluntness, exclaimed:
"I must say, Tessle, I don't like your
"No more do I," quoth the polite
Harry, "let's go down to Dels and get
something fit to eat," whereupon the
whole party arose and calling cabs
were whirled away to Delmonlcos to
gorge as they liked!
Pretty much the same party occu
pied a box at "Weber & Field's one
evening, and, under the leadership o"
the Irrepressible Harry, seemed to get
much amusement and a good deal of
chaff out of Lillian Russell's perform
ance; her dress, manner, voice, etc.
The airy, fairy one noticed this and
stood for it some time, but when her
scene was over she went to the man
ager and swore by all her husbands
dead and gone that she would not go
on again unless that "little beast Harry
Lehr and his party left the house."
"But, great heavens! Mrs. Russell,"
exclaimed the perturbed manager,
"they are leaders of the 400: I cannot
turn them out of the house."
"I don't care if they're leaders of the
heavenly choir," was the sharp rejala
der, "out they go or home I go."
So the scared manager went up to
the box and asked the party to with
draw. Harry Lehr laughed in his face.
Then the manager got his back up.
"Look here, you Jackanapes!" he ex
claimed, "if you don't get out quietly
I'll have you put out."
Discretion is the better part of valor
even to the Lehr de Lehr cult, so col
lecting his party, the giddy little Bal
timorean slipped away much crestfall
en, and the airy fairy one went on
with her embonpoint performance.

Angeline! "Ay. come off! If
you want me to listen to

thousand on a stage setting."
"It is queer,", says a New
York clergyman, "what a lik
ing young students have for
long words and Latin quo
tations, and what a dread
possesses them of appearing
conventional. I once knew a
promising candidate who was
given charge of a funeral in
the absence of the pastor of
the church. He knew it was
customary for the minister to
announce after the sermon
that those who wished should
step up to view the remains,
I but he thought this was too

The Dr. Benj. F. Bailey Sanatorium
Is not a hospital, not a hotel, but a home.. The building Is located on a sightly hill at Normal,
and is reached by the cars of the Lincoln street railway, being only 28 minutes' ride from the
business center of the city. It Is thoroughly equipped ana beautifully furnished. Every
electric current useful in the treatment of the sick is used, and Ideal Turkish. Russian, and
Medicated Baths are given. In conditions where the kidneys and liver are affected, and in
cases of rheumatism, our Hot Air Treatment has been remarkably successful. For full in

WILLIAM E. MASON, U. S. SENATOR.
The Illinois senator "was recently turned down by the republicans
of his state, the Springfield convention endorsing the senatorial aspira
tions of Congressman Hopkins, of Aurora, and urging the batter's selec
tion by the next Illinois legislature. Mr. Mason, however, refuses to ac
cept the verdict of the convention, asserting that it was packed against
him, and has announced his intention to fight it out to the last.
If you care for Artistic Furniture why
not get the best? The finest creations
today in the swell shops in New York are
built in Flemish Oak, if for dining room
use. We are the only furniture house in
this city showing a large line of Flemish
Oak dining room cabinet work.
For it are not more than sixty per cent
of the prices charged in New York.
The dark greenish-black ground makes
a superb relief for carvings and metal
The ornamentation is greatly assisted by the reproduction of old binges,
locks, and fittings in iron and brass.
Flemish Oak is just what is needed in rooms that have been painted in the
late English art stains or covered in Morris or Liberty fabrics.
