"She was  just the kind of a girl to faint away,"  lie told himself. ���������  As the woman passed he caught  among her mutterings the word "Twenty-third." Evidently that was the station where she wished to get off. Some  one would have to help her. Who?  The niotorman stood stolidly on ^he  platform between tbe cars. Alston comforted himself with the.reflection that  it was no business" of his if a woman  got so jolly drunk she' could not take  care of herself. City life superinduces  n certain hardness.  To quiet his guilty conscience he  turned again to the girl.  She. too, had'eaught the word "Twenty-third." It was the next station.  She looked around appealingly. She  was the only woman in the car. The  men were engrossed in their papers or  smiling broadly nt the fun.  Her face whitened into determination. She got up hastily and touched  -the woman on the arm. The wretched  creature turned aggressively, but  something of the pain and pity in the  young face seemed to pierce her befuddled brain.  "Twenty-third street," she said thickly, while a fatuous smile spread over  her face.  "You want to get oft at Twenty-  third," the girl repented <f<*ntly. "Yes;;  I know.   I v ill help you off."

Cabal.���������This word was coined in  Charles II.'s, reign and applied,.to bis  cabinet council. It was made out of  the initials'of their, names, which were:  .Cliltord, Arlington, Buckingham, Ashley, Lauderdale.  Scandinavian  Carving.  -From earliest times carving li'as> received great attention in Scandinavia.1-  One sees evidence of this in many Swedish churches, both in wood and stone,  dating back many centuries.   In Stockholm are many to be found, now safely cared, for in a well known museum. ,  Some of these northern churches, notably  those of Borgund and  Hiltcrdal.  are quite covered with such quaint ornamentation.   Beyond such public cx-~  prcssion of painstaking labor one may  see in almost any comfortably furnished house woo'den forks,  spoons,  salt  boxes and platters, but still more attracting   attention^ arc  huge  wooden,  tankards,   nnd  these  will  often   bear'  close study both in design and in execution.  TJaen For the Bnliy Cnrringrc.  "Did you ever notice the uses , to  which baby carriages nre put?"-askod  the observant mnn. "Just look at those  children taking those puppies out for  nn Hiring. Tho youngest child was  graduated from that perambulator less  than two years ago, I'll bet. The carriage is somewhat rickety now, and a  careful mother would hardly intrust an  Infant to it, but it makes a good plaything for the children.  "I see laundresses wheeling baskets  of clean clothes home to their customers in baby carriages. It boats walking nnd carrying a big basket. Only  this morning I noticed two poorly clad  girls gathering odds and ends of boards  thrown aside by carpenters who were  building a house. They put tlieir stock  of fuel in a baby carriage. I suppose  Ihey will take the baby out in that  same perambulator this afternoon."���������  New York Tress.  Red Flnnnel Currency.  A Scotch missionary to a group of  small islands in tlie south Pacific a  great many years ago found bits of red  flannel circulating as money. This cur-'  rency came to them in a curious manner. The body of a shipwrecked sailor  had drifted ashore, and to tho untutored savages, who had never before  scon clothing of any kind, his red flannel shirt was an object of wonder and  admiration. By common consent they  cut the garment into small pieces,  which thenceforth became the currency of the island.  There is no use growing excited when  a man calls you a liar. If you arc one,  you knew it before ho told you, and If  you are not you know ho is.���������Baltimore  American. . .  Smnll llllx of Oolil.  Gold Is so very tenacious that a piece  of it drawn into wire one-twentieth of  nn inch in diameter will sustain a  weight of 500 pounds without breaking, its malleability is so great that  a single grain may bo divided into  2,000,000 parts and a cubic inch into  0,523,S0O���������r)20 parts, each of which may  be distinctly soon by tbe naked eye.

The .workshop was in the  open air, and, although tniloicd in the  sweat of liis,brow, no sweatshop work  ' was possible.  The material was not of the best, but  Adam found no bettor at hand. Some  of the modern'tailors, making sho<ldy-  giiriiieiits at shoddy prices, imitate  Adam, who used "leavings."    '  As to Adam, the first customer, whet*  lie was alone' in tho world  he never ,  thought of dress, but when he came to  the  realization of himself as an indi������  vidual and in relation to others he began lo spruce up.  'Courtship led hiia   '  to beautify himself, to appear well iu      i  the eyes of "the only woman he ever  loved." Human nature has not changed    t  much. _ '  "Willi the entry of society dress began. Perhaps this is why dress form*  so prominent a feature in society today.     '  After eating tho apple of knowledge*  the mind of Adam ivd������ suddenly illw-  mlnatcd as if by a thousand  electrie  lights. , A great thought of large, prac- l  Ileal,   worldly  wisdom   flushed   before'  him.    He realized  that to amount to  any thing in the world he must make a  good appearance.   In this he struck a,  keynote of business success.  Surely bo needed to keep up appear*  ances.    He reflected over his actienr  for   the   two   weeks   prior  and   thc������  looked at his future,   lie had been h������  bad society and had boon seen with ������  disreputable serpent, he had been ledt  into temptation, ho had broken the law,  he was implicated in an apple theft an  accessory after the fact, lie had some  of tho stolen goods In  his posiossiow  and he was a fugitive from Justice, for  he was then in  "hiding."    Discovery  was certain.    Ho was  to  be evicted  from his home and in disgrace hnd to  face the nwfulncss of actually earnin-r  Ms own living by work.   Then, after ������  mild attack of remorse, lie was equal  to the situation and in a manly way no  coptcd it, made himself a suit of clothe*  in which lie could make a decent ap>-  ponr.'inco nnd began life anew with the  courage, hope, pride and confidence that  comes from the consciousness of being  well dressed.���������William George Jordaa  in Fashioner.
