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.

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

and sometimes in tho afternoon they

Do's and Don'ts
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.
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.

For smart women to carry plain sun
shades of soft, heavy silk In solid color,
with metal tipped ribs and ferrule and

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

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

tities of buttons in crochet, bono, chi

from cotton crape, as
well as from batiste and
fabrics of the sort If
for any reason tho em
broidery Is not wanted
the edges crtn bo trim
med with lace, and lace
insertion or medallions
can be used, or a pretty,
simple effect could bo
obtained by scalloping
the edges nnd using tho
initial in tho frame on
the front In placo of the
more elaborate design.
Soisetto Is ono of tho
new materials for un
derwear, and It is very
pleasant to wear. Tho
gown is slipped on over
the head and drawn up
by means of ribbon in
serted in silts worked
for tho purpose.
For tho sixteen year
slzo tho gown will re

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.
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.

An Old Favorite
She Walks In Beauty
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
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.

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.

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.
Tho Nightingale and the Peacock.
A nightingale of a soclablo turn

"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
