One man with an odd hobby isn't t person who gets much mall, and what Lo IIUH or expects to have ho can kor?i> in mind very easily. Probably ho never had a letter which went astray. Yet every time he »«•« In the newspapers tho list of advertised mall sent out from tlmo to time by the general postofllco In New York he turns at once to the Initial letter under which his name comes and runs carefully through tho list. Ho never yet has found any letter that might bo supposed to be for him and, furthermore, hasn't, found any that might be for any of his relatives. He takes an odd pleasure In doing It, however, something-with that eagerness which Impels a mnu to grub through n packet of old letters In hopes that he may come upon some rare variety of stnmp. Itoally, If ever ho found his name In tho list It probably would kill his enjoyment of tho hunt forever thereafter.—New York Sun. Anticipated Cause Tor Sorrow.

This method seemed rather laborious to Mrs. Nuti:.II, so she ordered several iron wheel- b.irrows from the city. When they arrived she turned them over to tho foreman after explaining to him what they were for and how to use them. Kr-xt d;iy when she visited the work the Indlnns bud discarded their primitive piirihuolaH and were using the bright new- wluielbnrrowH. As (;ncli bnrrow wns filled with enrlh It was picked up by two Indians, one u«Ing the handles and the other the wheel, and carried to the place whore the enrlh was to be deposited. All efforts to get tho Indians to use the wheelbarrows properly failed, and they kept on carrying them until the work WHS finished. A TEMPERANCE UNION. Alphabet of the Playhouse. "We keep learning things all the time," said an Infrequent theater goor. "I stopped In front of a theater the other day to buy a ticket of a speculator, and 1 asked him If he Lad a good single near the front. " 'Jlere'a one In O,' he suld, 'thirteenth row, third scat from the aisle.' "is'ow, you know, I don't carry the relative positions of the letters of the alphabet In my mind all the time.

The Surprise of Gli/nitca. "I have never quite ma-.lo out," says a writer In "Near lOnst." "why the plain of Sllvnltsa hns come to be re- gnrded as the scone of one of the groat decisive battles of the world's history. It did not even decide the Servo Rulgnrl.'in war In 1S8">. That was decided by Austria Intervention. The battle of Sllvnltsa Is really only ro- murknblo for the comical fact that both sides thought they were defeated, and while Milan of Sorvlu was hurry- Ing homo In confusion Alexander of Bulgaria galloped all the way back to his capital before he leiuned that the tldo had turned.

The penalty for any breach of this oath Is fixed at ." soldi, pa.yablo to Papio LJovntorlo. j In the second document I'erano do liotio promises I'berto do Proto to ' abstain from (rambling for a certain period, exception being made on be-' half of the game of blsmetitiro, nt which, however, he was not to lose I more than 2 dennri on any one day. I Further, r ho uuderfakes not to visit any Inn for drinking purposes before (he hour of vespers on Monday. A breach of either clause of the pledge Involves tho'payment of 5 soldi to De Proto. P.y the third document Slleto Ferrarlo expressed his willingness to pay 12 dennri to his brother Lamperio Bhould he bo persuaded to piny for money in any place of public resort or to spend more than 2 dennri on intoxicants la nny one day. Tho motive for these contrnct« is not stated, but It Is presumed that they were entered into by employees whose tiflHiers wished to koep their proclivities in chock. Tlicre Is nothing In the documents to suggest th<? nxlsVence of nny organization for the promotion of temperance. The honor of bcJng first In the field In this respect therefore still rests with Germany, where two temperance societies were founded in the sixteenth century. Of those the Order of St. Christopher was formed by Slglsmund do Oiottrichsteiii on .Ian. 18, 1517, and tho Order of Temperance by tho landgrave of Hesse on Doc. 2.", H100. The morn- i bers of tho one order wore pledged to | abstain from toast drinking, and the members of the other undertook not to drink more thnn seven glasses of j liquor nt n time, and that not oftoncr Hum twice n day.—Chicago News.

Grace Mnncarct Gould tolls In tho September Woman's Home Companion some of tho ways the Parisian dross- making establishments soil their goods to American women. Here is one ruse that she saw worked In one of the blg- tfest establishments in Paris: There was a sudden and evident commotion among the employees. "Tho princess! Tho princess! She has arrived!" they cried. American eyes began to bulge. Out from n magnificent equipage stepped a regally gowned grand lady, attended by footmen and maid and received by the whole bowing establishment, to the neglect of all other customers. She was In n gracious mood this day and easy to bo nloasod, praising their past efforts and solect- ing several of their new creations without regard to cost. After she hnd rnado her departure ntnld like ceremonies tin-re was no need of the saleswoman bothering her head over suggestions. Every American woman present wanted n gown copied from tho one the prlncoss hnd bought, nnd she got It nftor much pleading nnd nt n price far beyond the limit she had set. And tho point of this fable Is this; Tho princess was no princess, but »n employee of the house. Every French gown has two prices-— nn American price and a French price. It Is needless to say which Is tho greater price. Along about April the cry poos up, "Tho Americans are coming!" and the 1 ) the prices go up too. Along about November, when tho Americans have loft, you might almost nay they are giving away gowns, only the Frenchman never doos give away anything. Then It Is that the Frenchwoman in general and the French actress lu particular selects her wardrobe.
