Today's Short Story The Wrong House WHEN I left home for Miss Har mon's school for girls my fa ther lived in Illinois. When I was graduated he had removed to Bankton, N. Y. Ho gave mo tho street and number, but I found it difficult to make out tho address. As near as I could como to deciphering tho name of tho street it was Lafayette. This was not correct. It was Sabcllo street. Leaving tho station on my arrival, I took a cab and told tho driver to take mo to DO Lafayette street. When I( saw tho houso I was surprised that my father could afford to live in it. A maid came to tho door whom I had never seen, and I told her to tell mother that I had come from school. Sho asked mo whom she should say had come. I told her "her daughter, of course." Tho maid went upstairs to make the announcement. I waited quite a long while for her return. When sho came down she told mo that no ono was at homo except my mother, who had recently had n cataract removed from one of her eyes and was obliged to remain in a dark room. Tho chamber occupied by my mother was so dark that I could scarcely seo my hand before my face. I found her sitting in an easy chair and put my arms around her neck. "Why, child," sho said, "did you not write us that you would come tomor row? Your brother would have met you at tho station." I was startled. My mother's voice had changed. "There's some mistake nbout that, mother dear." I replied. "I wrote that I was coming on Thursday. Thursday and Friday by a bad writer may bo made to look alike. Perhaps there's whero tho error lies." Tho door of tho room I was in open ed, somo ono hurried in, and a man's volco said: "Whero are you, sis?" "I'm hero." "Ellen told mo you'd como and como n day ahead of time." My brother Tom, ten years my se nior, nover called mo anything but "als" and "sissy," but tbero was something wrong with his voice. I had no time to wonder what had caus ed tho chango when I felf myself clasped In two strong anris and lips pressed against mine. "What's, become of your beard?" "Beard! I never had ono. We've been counting on your coming." And be gave me another good hug and sev eral kisses. "But como out into tho light I want to see how you've im proved." Putting his arm around my waist, he led mo out through tho anteroom, and, opening tho outer door, wo stood on tho threshold between- the room and tho hall. We were entire stran gers to each other! "Great Scott!" was his exclamation. "Heavens!" was mine. He dropped his arm as if it had been shot, and I quickly drew away. "now In tho name of" "I must have got Into the wrong" At this point ho regained his equa nimity. "If you're not my sister, you're certainly worthy to bo any one's sister. Come, tell mo how it happened." I told him my story, and he replied that his own sister, who had been away from homo on a long visit, was expected tho next day. He Insisted that I needed a luncheon and ordered one, and whllo I was eating it ho tele phoned for a carriage. When it came ho got in with mo and soon I was with my own family. Tho family Into which I hjjd blun dered became my lntimato friends. Tho daughter called on me. and tho son has been so attentive to me as to well, wo shall see. mSTl t i X Jf X 1 1 rm 000000000000 THE VANITY BOX 000000000000 The beauty crawl is tho latest fem- inlno craze. It must bo a proper crawl; no half measures, but down on ono's hands and knees with the energy and thoroughness of a small boy searching for a marblo under tho dining room ta ble.' In tho morning tho devotees of beauty crawl round their bedrooms, and sometimes in tho afternoon they crawl In company with their women guests. t It To mnko tho cheeks rosy red, at the samo time benefiting tho skin, rub them slowly with a pleco of Ice. Color brought out In this way will remain for hours. Tho Ice strengthen the skin, Improving both its. velvet quali ties and its texture. 00000000000000 Etiquette Do's and Don'ts 00000000000000 Don't bo an undecided, spineless guest with no mind of your own. If you are asked If you wish white meat or dark meat make a decision. This is only good form. If your hostess asks whether you prefer to go out to tho theater or have a few guests at tho house don't be inexcusably irritat ing by saying: "I don't caro In tho least. Whatever you say is perfectly agreeable." Give your entertainer the privilege of doing the best for you. She would not consult you if she did not wish to know your preference. A girl announces her engagement ei ther through an entertainment, such as a luncheon, by a relative or an old friend or else by short notes to those whom sho wishes to know first of tho intended marriage. A young man writes notes to those of his friends who ho knows feel a deep interest in his affairs, and, of course, the matter is soon talked of by acquaintances as well as friends. The business girl cannot be too care ful of her reputation. Tongues wag in offices just as they do In drawing rooms, and men and women aro all too prono to gossip wherever they may be. M-H-M-!-H-H-MH t IT'S THE CHIC THING f i-H'H-W-l-I"l-I-I-l-I-I-H-I-H-HH- For a young widow to wear white mourning this spring. A stunning mourning costume recently noted was of white mohair and worsted inlxturo trimmed with white crape bands and buttons and accompanied by a fetch ing wrap of doubled white chiffon cloth with wide border and deep cuffs of white crape. Whito buttoned boots completed this lovely costume. P. t For smart women to carry plain sun shades of soft, heavy silk In solid color, with metal tipped ribs and ferrule and modish sticks. It For the girl who likes novelties to wear tho now floral head chain. The beads are tho colors of the flowers from which they aro made. For in stance, a rose chain made from pink roses will be the exact color of the said flower. Each bead is made of crushed rose pasto in composition with other material and wrought In a spe cial design. Tho notable thing about these beads is that when they become warm from contact with the throat they exhale the natural odor of tho flower. i It For a dressy lingerie waist this season to display a great deal of hand em broidery In white or colors, with quan tities of buttons in crochet, bono, chi na, glass, brass or rhlnestone on the front, sleeves, collar or down the yoke section.

It Is nover a question of how much wo can do with our own band, or our own hands, or our own lives. It is always a ques tion how much wo are willing to let God do with them. Anon. I will go forth 'mong men, not mailed In scorn, But In the armor of a pure in tent. Great duties are before mo and great songs. And, whether crowned or crown less when I fall, It matters not, so as God's work is done. Alexander Smith. H-hH-I-W-I-H-H-H-l-I-l-l-l-l-l-H- J AT A GLANCE.

UK walks In beauty llko tho night Of cloudless climes and starry skies. And all that's best of dark and bright Meet In her aspect and nor eyes. Thus mellow'd to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. Ono shado tho more, ono ray tho less, Had half Impaired tho nameless grace Which waves In every raven tross Or softly lightens o'er her faco, Whero thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear, their dwelling place. And on that cheek and o'er that brow Bo soft, so calm, yot eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow. But tell of days In goodness spent A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love Is Innocent. The Children's Corner Such a Particular Pig! Pig No, I never eat Jam; it makes one look so untidy. It it Conundrums. Why would an owl get offended if you should call him a pheasant? Because you would be making game of him. Why is rheumatism like a great meat eator? Because It always at tacks the Joints. Why aro balloons in nir like vagrants? Be cause they have no visi ble means of support Why is fashionable so ciety like a sliver bowl? Because it is highly pol ished, but very hollow. Game of Animals. Tho players sit in a circle. Each chooses an animal and asks his neigh bor why he should wish to bo tho ani mal ho has chosen. For example: Q. I choose an elephant. Why should I wish to be ono? A. Because you would never lose your trunk in trav eling. Q. I wish to bo a dog. Why? A. Bo causo it Is intelligent aud faithful. Q. I wish to bo a monkey. Why? A. So that you might play even more tricks than you do already. Q. I should llko to bo a deer. Why? A. You aro ono already, (A forfeit may bo claimed for a bad pun.) Q. I chooso to bo a lion. Why? A. Bccauso ydu always wish for power. And so on around tho circle. Tho ono answering gives tho next question. When ono cannot givo a satisfactory answer ho must pay a forfeit or drop out of tho game. ! i Parallels, This is a gamo In which ono of the players tlki a story to illustrate some familiar proverb, whllo tho others guess what It is. Tho story continues till tho proverb Is guessed correctly, when tho successful gucsscr becomes tho story toller. Ono way of playing Is to chooso sides. Tho sides stand In opposito lines, and a story told by a player on ono sldo must bo guessed by ono on tho other side. At tho end of somo fixed time, gen erally about half an hour, tho sldo ono of whoso members is telling a story is declared tho winner, thus deciding by tlmo Instead of best guessing. It Tho Nightingale and the Peacock. A nightingale of a soclablo turn sought in vain for a friend among all tho singing birds. "Perhaps I shall find ono elsewhere," thought sho and fluttered dpwn to pay a visit to tho peacock. "Beautiful bird, I cannot but odmiro theol" "And I always admired thee, sweet songs tor I" "Let us bo friends, then," said the nightingale, "for you court the eyo and 1 tne ear."
