SENATOR L. Y. SHERMAN.
URING the suffrage Invasion of Washington
many arguments In fn-vor of tho "cause" were
presented, but It remained for Senator Lawrence
Y. Sherman of Illinois to crown them all with
an argument as original as It was startling. The sena
tor from Illinois, while In the midst of a thrilling speech
In behalf of woman's suffrage, waved his arms, raised
Uls voice and In clarion tones that threatened to onrry
from the national .capital clear to Chicago announced
this marvelous physiological axiom: "The maternal in
stinct is ns strong In woman as in man." It made the
male suffragists in the galleries wonder if they should
call themselves suffragettes hereafter. And it has in
delibly inscribed the name of the colleague of the In
imitable Jim Ham Lewis on a tablet in the Washington
hall of fame all his own.
The war between members of congress and the Wash
ington street railways over a rule regarding the time
limit on transfers has produced a number of exciting
encounters this summer between conductors, who con
servo the interest of the traction companies, and states
men, who at other times conduct the affairs of the na
tion. Representative Frank Buchanan of Illinois not long
ago had a lively tussle with a conductor who attempted
forcibly to put him off a street car on which he insisted
he was entitled to ride. Although Representative Thomas
Rellly of Connecticut offered his good offices as arbi
trator after separating the pair from their death grap
ple, tendering the conductor the nickel demanded, Mr.
Buchanan would have none of It and in the end got oil
the car and walked the balance of the way to his office. Representative
Thomas TJ. Slswon of Mississippi also had a similar dispute with a conductor,
which was ended by a woman paying his faro in the face of Mr. Slsson's pro
tests, the gallant Mlssissipplan not caring to involve a woman In the argu
ment. And there have been lots of other misups of the same character since
the hot weather began and, the trolley companies sought to enforce their arbi
trary transfer rule.
No one in the house of representatives dares to trifle with Representative
John J. Fitzgerald of Brooklyn, chairman of the great committee on appro
priations, until the would bo trlller is sure of his facts. The reason is that
Fitz, as they call him, is possessed of one of the most marvelous memories
known to the national legislature. Ho can remember the
name, date, page and line of every speech over made in
congress or, at least, so his friends say though that
statement is probably some slight exaggeration of the
facts. But, bo that as It may, in bromidlc parlance.
Philip Campbell, tlio stalwart stand pat Republican from
Kansas, has reason to regret Fltz's memory. Not long
ago the question Of "tenure of office for government
clerks" arose in the house. The Democrats hada propo
sition to make government clerks' employment proceed in
terms of six years.
Representative Campbell made a most vigorous and
fiery speech against it. Ho called it iniquitous; ho called
it tyrannical; ho called it unfeeling, unsympathetic and
smelling of graft and corruption and made great ap
plause for himself on the Republican side.
"While ho was talking Representative Fitzgerald called
Marcellus Shields, assistant clerk to the house appropria
"Get mo the Record of about April 12, 1000," ho said.
Shields brought the volume, and Fitzgerald turned to
April 12. There was the speech of Campbell of Kansas
in favor of a tenure of office exactly in favor of the thing he was now de
nouncing. Fitzgerald waited his chance and then read Campbell's seven-year-old
speech, and Campbell nearly died of embarrassment.
"John," ho said to Fitzgerald in the cloakroom afterward, "how in the name
of crime did you remember that speech? Why, I forgot that I ever made it!"

A Laundry Hint,
If you wish your tablo linen to look
nlco do not put it through tho wringer,
as it makes creases that will not come
out even If tho cloth bo ironed when
very damp. In fact, any clothes that
you wish to look very nicewhen iron
ed will be better if they aro wrung by
WHEN SUMMER SUNS BURN.
There is really no way, if the
summer girl would enjoy sum
mer sports, to prevent a certain
amount of sunburn and tan if
she wishes to be comfortable.
Of course, if you wish to cover
tho skin with cold cream, then
with powder, then with a thick
veil and then stay in tho shado
as much as possible, you may
como through the ordeal as
white as a lily.
If yoa wish to gain an even
dark coat of tan you can do so
with comparatively llttlo discom
fort if you bathe tho burned
skin, when it is first burned,
with very hot wnter for ten or
fifteen minutes, then rub it
with cold cream or sweet cream
anything to sootlw it When
tho skin Is next exposed to tho
sun's rays it will burn a little
deeper and can bo given another
hot water and cream treatment.
In a few days it will bo strong

This method of treatment
keeps tho skin from hurting
whllo it is tanning, but it does
little to lessen the tan. One of
tho best things to bleach tan and
burn is cucumber cream. Tho
arsenic in the cucumbers Is the
bleaching agent. If the cucum
ber cream is Irritating follow its
uso with tho application of a lit
tle elder flower water.

Today's Short Story
The Smuggler's Revenge
MAN calling himself Giovanni
walked into an Italian restaurant
in New York, nnd, addressing
tho proprietor, Antonio Mancinl, asked
for employment as a waiter. Being
told that tho forco of waiters wus
complete, bo said that he would work
for nothing until a vacancy occurred.
Soon nfter Giovuuul's employment
tho custom of the establishment drop
ped off, and the proprietor, instead of
filling waiters' vacancies, began to dis
charge those ho had. Ho told Gio
vanni that there was no hopo for him
to secure pay and ho was welcome to
leave as soon as ho liked. To this
Giovanni replied that he was making
a living from the tips ho received and
this was far better than nothing.
But the attendance at the restaurant
continued to decrease. One day he
called his few remaining employees
to his office and said to them:
"I am expecting the sheriff to levy
on what remains hero. Until recently
I was making money. Indeed, I pos
sessed $20,000, now I am a beggar.
"Go and secure new places. As for
me, I know not what to do."
All expressed sorrow for their em
ployer and went away, , except Gio
vanni. ."You wonder, signor," said the lat
ter, "why I, to whom you have never
paid a cent, have stood by you to tho
"I am not only a countryman of
yours, but I came from the same dis
trict as you, tho lake region of Italy.
I was a smuggler engaged In run
ning dutiable goods across Lake Como
to a region where It was easy to
dispose of them. You know that tho
lake is patrolled by the customs offi
cers and there Is groat risk in carry
ing goods across. Indeed, It is prac
tically Impossible to do so without de
tection. Well, I divided my profits
with them, and they took care not to
see mo. In this way I gained enough
to pay for a farm and was about to
purchaso one, marry tho girl I loved
and turn farmer when n misfortune
occurred to me. A customs officer 1
had been bribing made it his business
to see mo while smuggling. I was ar
rested nnd imprisoned."
Mancinl sat spellbound by tho story,
every moment growing paler. Gio
vanni kept his eye fixed on him in
tently. "While in jail," he resumed, "I was
put Into a cell with nn old smuggler.
He was. ill, and I nursed him. Dying,
he made mo his heir. Where do j-ou
suppose his fortune was deposited?"
"You remember the point formed by
tho junction of Lakes Como and Lec
co?" "I was born on it"
"There, across the lake, one can see
Monte Crocione and on a crag near by
the llttlo church of San Martino."
"I was married there," groaned
"And not far from San Martino Is
a hole in tho rock. From across tho
lake It looks only large enough to con
tain a' big bowlder. It would hold a
"I have been In it"
"Tho fortune I inherited was there.
Tho smuggler had turned all his prof
Its into diamonds and hidden them in
tho cave. I brought them to America
in tho shape of bills of exchange."
"And have lost your inheritance?"
"No; I have every cent of It. And
why have I, a rich man, been working
here without pay? To ruin the cus
toms officer who betrayed mo nnd who
married my betrothed. I have caused
the falling off of your business by cir
culating false stories of. what food
you have served to your guests."
"You you have done this?"
"You have taken a terrible revenge.
But you are rich, and I will have dam
ages under the law."
"On what evidence?"
Mancinl was silent.
"But it Is not necessary that you
should prosecute me. For tho sake of
tho girl of whom you deprived me I
shall repair the damage . I have done.
Here is a check for $10,000. Begin
again. There will bo no more stories
to hinder you. In a few months you
will have regained your former position."
A Handsome Settle Built on Simple Lines
SIMPLICITY combined with comfort characterizes the pretty settle illus
trated here. The model comes from abroad, where many Ideas originate
. in tho studios of famous-artists who are interested in tho movement to
revolutionize interior decorating. The settle is built of walnut and up
bolstered in silk tapestry in shell pink.
! VANITY BOX. I
For removing stains from the skin
and for bleaching It there Is nothing
to equal a lemon.
You cannot increase tho length of
the bones of the ngers, but you can
give them a tapering effect by mas
saging them from the base to the tips.
Chloroform is prescribed for mos
quito bites, but one should use this
with discretion, and tho bottle con-,
talnlng it should be distinctly marked.
It reduces the swelling and relieves
the itching and pain.
