In spite of his great age. Mr. Harrison Is still hale and hearty, and his Intellectual activity Is oe- .caslonally evidenced in acutely reasoned letters to the press. A self- disciplinarian, he. attributes his physical and mental fitness to the rigid observance of his own Spartan "rules ot life." Here they are: "Touch not tobacco, spirit, nor any unclean thing. Rise from every meal with an appetite. Walk dally two hours. Sleep nightly seven hours. Be content with what you have." Playing cards and tobacco are Mr. Harrison's aversions. "Men and worn en," he says, "who are too dull to take pleasure in talk, too ignorant to read toib lasy to dance, deaf to mualc, blind to art,.unable to keep themselves awake, betake themselves to cards.' As for my Lady Nicotine, be cannot find words stremg enough to denounce ber with. Smoking is "a beastly dis ease," to be shunned on grounds med leal, moral, social and esthetic. Mr. Harrison, . however, is better known.OS the greatest living disciple of Auguste Comte than as a sexilal Don Quixote. His presidential ad- Jresses < the Positivlst society are said by ,ood judges toycontaln some af the imest "high thinking" In tbe English language. In view of these snd other virtues, people here are proud to hail him a grand old London: er, bom and educated within the sound of the bells of Bow. lil^liai Shall I Buy?

Chicago people certainly have the knack of getting on," a shopper said. "In the suit department of a big store I met a Chicago woman who had been in Philadelphia less than a week. She said she wasn't buying anything; had lust come to get the lay of the land. In the process of getting it she stopped a cash girl and said: "'Is that Miss Blake selling white linen skirts to that fat woman? I understand you have a Miss Blake in this department.' " 'No, that la Miss Barton,' said the cash girl. "This Chicago woman wrote the name in her address book: Then she showed me. the names of saleswomen la several other stores. " 'This la only a preliminary to real shopping,' she said. It pays me to take the extra trouble. If I expect to buy more than |5 worth ef anything at a streage store I iMm beforehand the names of the saleswomen whose looks I like best. "'Then when I go back to buy, can say. aa I shall do here tomorrow. 1 would like Miss Barton to wait on me.' and although Miss Barton has never set eyes on me. the fact that I can call her by name gives her the Impression that she must have sold me a 1100 dress at some time and I get twice aa good service as I would get U I knew nobody by name.'

This leaving oif of tbe little things that fo to make Uvlns worth the while is a srell-known and recognized fact to women who crave those gracious at- :enUoos so easy in the giving when :he thought is right. Many men no longer consider it nec- jssary to rise when a lady enters tbe room. If they proffer a chair, it is leldom done with tbe old-time alacrity, lad a few trips on a city car will be iufDcient to convince the veriest ske)>- :Ic of the truth of courtesy's deca- lence. Be it said in favor of man, contin- ]ally on the rack regarding these omia- tloziB, that he is by no means tbe pvatest offender.
