THE SUITER TRICK.
Tliis vnniisht'il dancing pump wns
nlippod off the foot of nn exquisite yonns
mnn nt a reception nt one of tho lerulinj?
salons of r.n-is. My eminently correct
rendersneed not turn up their aristocratic
noses nt the vulvar lack ef delicacy be
trayed by my exquisite yornj; man. Let
him ntnong yon who dors not ndoro n
dainty foot cast the first stone.
Octavo Lntournolle that is jny ex
quisite young man's name was not only
a perfect dancer. He poessed not only
two vory nimble, legs, but two very nim
blo hands, whereof tho adroitness was
tho admiration of Ell his friends. Indeed
tho most expert conjuror wonhr-not havo
been nsharaed to own him for a pupil.
At his word of command watches passed
from one pocket to another, gold coins
vanished into thin itir, flowers grew upon
hira as if on a magical bush he drew
them forth from his pockets, his sleeves,
his waistcoat, his cravat, in quantities
sufficient to decorate tho corsages of all
the ladies present, nnd tins after having,
by way of preamble, turned his pockets
inside out, rolled up his sleeves nnd
opened his waistcoat. In a word, ho was
the enchanter of the best drawing rooms
and tho spoiled child of tho Indies.
Perhaps, rather than tho spoiled child,
he considered himself tho potted dar
ling. At nny rate ho was in lovo, and ho
made that fact known with tho audacity
thnt often gives success.
.Tho object of his adoration was the
jonng wifo of General Pascnlon it is
only tho husband's rank that restrains
mo from mentioning th disparity of
tlieir ages. But nil generals have young
wives, which is only another proof that
the truly brave do not recoil from dan
gers of any kind. It is Irnditional in
cases of this kind that the husbnnd
should be jealous, but General Puscalon
was not so. Bnt if he was not an Othel
lo neither was he a fool.
Trusting in the loyalty of his young
wife, ho cherished no illnsions. Ho en
joyed many a Palais Royal farce with
hui wife by his side more often than not,
which was imprudent perhaps bnt he
also escorted hor to balls, novor plead
ing hi ngo ns an excuse, nnd waited pa
tiently for her till nftcr tho cotillon,
and to all appearances his wifo was quite
Perhaps she was so. But there were
plenty of young fellows who would look
down at you from the high superiority
of their 25 years if you ventured to ox
press such nn idea nnd say:
"With nn old fellow like that! Really
yon nre too refreshing."
The general was not to bo laughed nt.
He knew his danger, not only before all
the world had soen it, but licfore any one
else suspected it, and ho saved his honor
like a mnn of intelligence which indeed
ho conld Imvo done in no other way.
And this brings fi down at last to the
varnished sbpper of the exquisite young
I have said that the affair took place
In tho midst of a reception. Dancing
was going on in the -larger rooms. The
general was chatting with somo of tho
older guests in a small room adjoining
the one set ont with card tables. Ho
happonod to glunco carelessly toward
the players and sturted suddenly in sur
prise. "Bless me," said ho, putting up his
glasses, "there's my wifo at a whist tublo.
I certainly thought sho was waltzing or
polkuing or something, and there sho
is playing whist. She must be vory
tired, for she never plays curds and is
always dancing. I shall have to scold
her," he added, with a laugh, "for in
dulging herself so much in her favorite
pleasure that she has to do penance nt
the card tablo," and ho strollod leisurely
toward the pluyors.
, A jostle knocking his glasses from his
eyes ns ho reached the whist table, ho
stooped to pick them up and saw be
neath the tublo a slipper, a patent leath
er pump, from which its tenant had es
caped, and now, shod only in fine black
silk hoso, was pusjiod against the little
foot of tho general's wife. But he also
'noticod that the latter constantly avoided
the foot that so persistently pursued hor
"Hum," said the general, taking in
the situation at a glance, "the fortress
is attacked, but it is well defended. J
have nrviveil just iii time." Then, smil
ing calmly ns if ho had seen nothing,
leaning over his wife's chair, questioning,
nnd advising her play, he devoted him
self to n feat that would h.-tvo furnished
a dnnuati:it with an irm iitibly comic
theme, considering tho difficulties of tho
situation. Tho general had undertaken
to draw toward him with tho tip of his
boot the abandoned slipper, provoking
every instant sudden jerks from jostlcS
feet, protestations from disturbed play
ers, astonished looks from thoso who
could eo tho extraordinary movements
of his leg nnd tho remonstrance from
"My dear, what makes you knock my
chair about so? You aro giving me a
At this moment tho mistress of the
house came up to ask Lntonmelle if he
would not perform some of his amusing
"Certainlyj I shall be delighted," he
answered nervously, preoccupied ns he
was by tho extraordinary movements of
the general, who stooped down just then
as if to pick up something and immedi
ately got up and left tho group.
"Well, sir," said tho lady, "give me
your arm, and 1 will introduce you.
Your audience is growing impatient."
"Certainly, luadaino, in just ono mo
ment," said Latonrnello, feeling with
his foot for his slipper, and so recom
mencing the remarkable jig executed by
the general a few moments m-fore. Kow
tho oilier players laughed outright
which they had not dared to do the first
time. And tho mistress of the house
stood there, surprised at being kept
waiting so long ami wondering how
much lonu'er her escort would keep her
in that auiiinle. Impatient ladies emtio
in hhoals to add their solicitations to
those of their hostess.
Ouv yo;i:'g man positively had to get
out if the predicament somo how. llo
did get out of it, but with only ono shoo,
for he also had stooped down nnd dis
covered the disappearance of tho mis
guided slipper, and ho marveled in deep
anxiety how he was going to explain such
a state of ulTairs.
His one shod foot provoked general
hilarity, then delighted npplauso nnd
cries of "It's a trick! It's Bomo trick!"
Tho petted davlitigof the ladies smiled
a Weak smile and stammered:
"Yes, ladies, it is n trick."
Applause, accompanied by n general
clapping of hands, greeted this an
nouncement, while Lntournello kept say
ing to himself:
"Oh. yes, it's a great trick, but somo
ono has played it on me, and I don't iind
it so very funny. If 1 only knew who it
was" then, struck with an idea: "Heav
ens! If it could bo tho general his sin
gular performance just now and I saw
him stoop down if it was really ho, it
would be a pretty uncomfortable jokoon
mo. How enn I make sure?'
As ho escorted tho lady through tho
room ho tried to got near tho general.
Ho managed to do so, and with the back
of his hand ho cautiously knocked
against tho pockot of the goneral's coat
which he suspected contained the slip
per. There was nothing there! Ho tried
to sound tho other pocket, but a slight
move on tho general's part carried him
out of reach. To touch it, it was neces
sary to pass around on the sido whero it
"Where in tho world are you taking
me?" demanded tho lady on his arm.
"Why or to tho head of the room,"
and ns he wns now on tho right side of
the genernl lie wanted to try tho other
pocket. Hero was a new obstaclo that
ho had not foreseen. Tho fact that tho
lady had tho arm nearest tho general
made any attempt at exploration impos
siblo. Ho offered the other on the pre
text of an old wound which was paining
him and wns able nt Inst to repeat his
former tactics. This time ho was satis
fied. "It's thoro!" ho murmured, and he
did not onjoy tho reflection that the hus
band of his adored one had discovered
his maneuvers under tho tablo.
"Well, I'm in a pretty mess," ho con
cluded. Everybody had crowded into tho room,
there was an expectant hush, and all
were on tiptoe for the promised trick.
There was no way to retreat.
"Here goes," said the imprudent lover.
"I must take the plunge, coino what
may." And he plunged.
"Ladies," he said, "I have lost my slip
per. I have not got it concealed about
my person; my pockets are empty" ha
turned them insido out "nor is it in my
coat" he held itopen "nor in my waist
coat" he unbuttoned it "nor in my
slooves" and he turned them up to his
elbows. "You see, ladies, I have noth
ing in my hands or uiy jiockets. . I must
find out, then, where the lost article is.
Nothing is more simple. I have only to
make a slight cabalistio calculation.''
With this he covered bin fuco with his
hands and assumed an attitude of pro
found cogitation. Then, without re
moving his hands, ho counted: "One,
two, three, four, five. My slipper," he
cried, "is in the left pockot of the sixth
person to my right."
This person wag the general.
"Not bod!" the latter exclaimed uu
der his breath, and in obedience to the
universal cries of "Search yourself,
search yourself, general," he drew the
slipper from the pockot indicated.
A storm of applause was evokod by the
brilliant success of the trick. Then, aft
er much whispering, several voices
cried, "Oh, the general is his confeder
ate." "Yes, yes," came a chorus of voices;
"he's a confederate,"
The conjurer protested,
"Do it again, then!" some one demand
ed, and everybodvjook tip tho cry : "Yes,
yes! Do it ngnin!"
"Oh," said a lady, "the general has
just been whispering toM. Lntournello."
And tho cry went up oi tiui hi lra
Tho general nfflrnvd that ho wns in no
sense furthering the eonjm-er's devices.
"But you were just now whispering
with him," insisted tho witnesses of the
"Tho exact truth Is this, Indies: Yon
nsked the conjurer to repent his per
formance. I just this moment told him
thnt it was ono of those tricks thnt should
not be tried a second time. Did I not,
sirr said the general significantly.
"Precisely, genernl, nnd I shall fol
low your advice," replied Lntonmelle.
"It shall not be repented."
And it never was. Translated For Ar

Four Sad Summer Deaths.
Four of my friends during the terrible
heat of last July died in homes where
every convenience was possible, but from
which women were absent. With their
families scattered in the country these
men wore forced to remain in the city.
In each case the thousand and one little
attentions thnt a man's home receives at
the hands of woman were neglected by
the servants. Meals were irregularly
served and more irregularly eaten ; rooms
were ventilated Just ns the servants re
membered or forgot them. That terri
ble week of incessant heat, which we nil
remember, enme nnd exhausted these
Dysentery nnd kindred summer ills
nre not far behind a mnn when ho is run
down by sleepless nights, harassed by
business, living in n cheerless, disman
tled, nncarcd for home under torrid days
and stilling nights. In ono instance it
was a young man in the flush of suc
cess, who camo homo ono evening only
to dio during tho night, too weak even
to ring for nssistanco. In another case
a man of millions, with bis family nwny
nt ono of tho fnshionablo resorts, suc
cumbed to the heat and wns found dead
the following afternoon. In the other
two cases the blow came not so sudden
ly, but yet within a week. And in each
instance tho families knew not that tho
mainspring of their support were ill un
til they were dead. Perhaps the pres
ence of mother, wifo or daughter might
not havo staid tho hand of death, but
who will deny tho efficiency of womanly
care in sickness? E. W. Bok in Ladies'
Professor Falb of Vienna has attained
lotno notoriety from tho fact that ho
predicted tho coming of both series of
eart hi pinko shocks from which the island
of Zante hns recently suffered.
recorded as coming truo in not a few in
stances, but there is reason to lielieve
thnt tho fulfillment of tho prophecies was
purely accidental. Seismologists aro not
likely to, givo Professor Falb much credit
for prescience. They will say ho merely
happened to foretell what wns coming.
We mny, to be sure, predict enrth
qunkos in somo regions with a good deal
oi confidence that tho prognostication
will como truo. If wo predict, for in
stance, that an earthquako or earth
tremors will bo felt in Japan tomorrow,
the chances aro thnt the prediction will
como true, for ono or two earth move
ments on an average are felt in that
country every day, but we cannot tell
exactly where they will occur or what
degreo of violence they will exhibit.
The greatest boon which could bo con
ferred upon regions that aro subject to
violent earthquake shocks would bo tho
discovery of somo means of foretelling
tho coming of theso terrible calamities.
For years seismologists have given their
most earnest attention to this problem,
but it cannot be said that they have
mndo much progress. Professor John
Miluo says that he and his assistants
have spent years in observing the earth
quake phenomona of Japan, but they
have never yet succeeded in foretelling
the coming of an earthquako. Now
The UnmnilnK of Telegraph Wires.
Yon have nil heard tho humming and
singing of telegrnph and telephone wires
as you passed the poles along the streets.
No doubt you have concluded that it is
caused by the action of the wind on the
wires and given it no further thought.
But it is not true that the singing is
caused by the wind, and if you are at all
observing you will notice that often the
humming sound is to be henrd cold win
ter mornings when thosmoko from chim
neys goes straight up until it is lost in the
clouds, and when the frost on tho wires
is as fuzzy and thick as a roll of chenille
The wind has nothing to do with the
sound, and according to an Austrian
scientist the vibrations are due to tho
changes of atmosphorio tomperaturo
and especially through tho notion of
cold, as a lowering of tomperaturo in
duces a shortening of the wires extend
ing over tho whole of the conductor. A
considerable amount of friction is pro
duced on the supporting bolls, thus in
ducing sounds both in the wires and the
When this bumming has been going

Lectures on Journalism nre becoming
abundant. It goes without saying that
19 times ont of 80 they nre by those who
know nothing of their subject experi
mentally, but know nil about it theoret
ically. And, oh, how beautifully they
do talk! But if they'll only take a little
back at it in a practical day in and day
out sort of way they'll find that journal
ism means something else than spider
web rainbows and pansy beds, or we'll
lose onr guess.
We havo never known a enso where
actual experience with book canvassers,
committees who want a lot of free ad
vertising In the editorial columns "for
tho good of the cause, you know," etc.,
ever failed to leave its impress of stern
logic. Those who presume on the duties
and responsibilities of journalism and
all that sort of pretty talk would see
some things at least a little differently
if they'd only get down from their high
horse nnd take a hand nt jonrnalism
themselves. Milford (N. Y.) Journal.

F.mpcror Wllllutn's Defeat.
The defeat of tho Germnn army bill,
from whatever point of view it is re
garded, is a very serious affair. In the
first placo it increases, only a little, per
haps, but still increases, tho probability
of war. Tho emperor, rebuffed nt homo,
cannot ncccpt any kind of rebuff abroad
nnd will bo far more sensitivo thnn be
fore nbout slight incidents nnd moro in
clined to beliovo that France or Russia
is taking advantage of his situation.
Moreover, Frenchmen will think that
tho internal struggle will weaken Ger
many, as it would weaken Franco, and
the hopo of finding a moment to fight
Germany when sho is wenk is exceeding
ly keen. Too much must not be mado
of this danger, because the rulors of
France ore much better informed than
her journalists and can see that a decla
ration of war would at once reunite the
German pcoplo, but still it exists and
must bo recorded. In tho second place,
it is probable thnt tho rejection of tho
bill does leave Germany weaker than sho
should bo. London Spectator.
