In the Frnnco-Oerni/in war tbc French hospital nf Vpnd'imc w«» In charge of Mrne. fjonilli' (alien, one of> trte most, noted IUM<>S of the tfnin. Thoro, aided hy two inirsos and «eve'i Chrlstliin SiHters of Mercy, she received thousands of French nnd Ger- mnn soldiers. When the PruHNlnnn occupied Vendoriie they wlstted to hold the hoHpltnl nnd plant on It the German flfig. lint, warned of f.he enemyV Intentions. Mine, fallen enrly one Jan- unry morning vinltr-d the I'ruHMi-iu /rcn- er;il, who, surrounded by his stuff, was about to seize the hiifldlng. "Hlr," she exclaimed, "we have received your wounded nnd nursed them as though th> y were our own. We will continue to do so. but we will remnin In n French hospital. We will riot have It converted Into a Gerrnnn hospital." "Mndfirne," wns the reply, "we are masters." "Tn the town ft rnny lie; here, no!" was (.lie answer. "We are protected by the Hod Cross rmd the French flag. You have no rlt?ht to touch either the one or the oilier." She conquered, nnd from that day the utmost admiration wns openly evinced for her by the Germans. A Wise Critic. FniriclKrpio Saivcy was for forty years a figure of great prominence In French literary life. As a critic of the drama he was looked upon as one having authority, and pnilse from him meant success to the struggling playwright. His criticisms were honest, fearless and Independent, nnd It is remembered of him (hut he refused the honor of belonging to the French academy lest ho should come under obligation to favor the plays written by other members. Harcey's good sense was often put to the test. One day a friend came rush- Ing Into his room waving a paper. "What l» the matter?" Inquired the critic. "Here's some one," cried the other, "who has been calling you an 'Imbecile' In print! Are you going to challenge him?' Surcey smiled. "Certainly not," ho replied. "I owe him my thanks. Tho public will soon forget the word 'Imbecile' nnd will only remember having read my name." Got Even With Dickens. When Charles Dickens was In Washington he met one morning on the steps of the capllol a young congressman from Tennessee whom the great novelist hud offended by his bluntness. That morning Dickens was lu great good humor. "I have," snld he, "found un almost exact counterpart of Little Nell." "Little Nell who?" queried the Ten- Dickons looked him all over from head to foot nnd from foot to head he- fore he answered, "My Little Nell." "Oh," said tho TennesHoeun, "I didn't know you had your daughter with you!" "I am speaking of the Little Nell of my story, 'The Old Curiosity Shop,' sir," retorted Dickons, Hushing. "Oh." salil the Imperturbable Ten- uesseean, "you write noveN, do you? Don't you consider that a rather trifling occupation for a grownup man?" Chinese Laundry Tickets. It Is noL generally known that the Chinese laundry system of ticketing a bundle of soiled clothes Is based on the many gods and goddesses of the laundry. Tho Chinese laundrynmn at the beginning of each week makes out a butch of checks In duplicate, to be used as wash tickets. Ho selects th« name of Home god or goddess or of some object, ns tho sun, tho moon or stars. To this mime he prefixes a number, ns "Moon No. 1," "Moon No. 2," and BO on. In tho space between the two legends—for the signs ure repeated—ho has his own mime, as, for Instance, Wong Lee.—Harper's Weekly. Tenure of Office Act. The tenure of olllco net, passed by congress In February, 1S(!7, during Its bitter flight with President Andruw Jotinson, was a bill limiting the powers of tho president In removals from olllee. Among other things It took from the president the [tower to remove members of his cabinet except by permission of the senate, declaring that they should hold olllee "for and during the torin of the president hy whom they may have been 'appointed and for one mouth thereafter, subject to removal by and with tho con.seut of the senate." The prosldtnit vetoed thu bill, but It was passed over his veto.— New York American. The Standard Size.

Harriman asks to hereafter choose U.S. Senators. Big insurance squabble over Lloyd's refusal to insure sheath gowns. California wants a special appropriation for a simplified code of School Bond Laws. Personally, have started a Mosquito Helmet practice. Wish to avoid Iowa boy's disaster with syrup can. "By the way, send me two dozen of those $2, and $3. straw hat bargains for 40 cents, and for heaven's sake send small sizes. Which do you think will be the first reality, Bryan's Cabinet or a new Covina Water and Sewerage System? I hope sooner than those sox you sent me eight months ago wear out. Why is it that a section of California kicks against the Dingley Tariff, when it brings her over $10,000,000 yearly? I guess for the same reason that your people jump at the Department Store Shirt Bargains when they can do far better at home both in quality and price. Have been worrying lately over a job after next March. I have a notion to try for that $150 Congressional Prize on "Why the Republican Party Should Stay in Power," only am afraid that those Lincoln, Neb, papers will beat me out. They are very clever along similar political lines. It is time for the Chief Executive to find his trundle and dream of the day when Covina shall have a series of straight street lines. "Teddy"
