IN an interesting article in ;he Forum /or February Theodora Roosevelt, the civil service cammisaloner, gives his ideas of tho men who are a menace to tho republic. His list Includes "the conscienceless stock speculator who acquires wealth by swindling- his fellows, debauching judges, corrupting legislatures and ends his days with tho reputation of being one o/ the richsst men in America, and who exerts upon the rising generation an Influence worse than that of tho average murderer or bandit, -even if he doea endow a college." Among the dangerous foes of the republic he says are "the reokieaa agitators who arouse the mob to riot and bloodshed, and who are the moet dangerous of the worklngman's enemies 1 '. Another who 'loaves in the record of his name and deeds a legacy of evil greater than the professional labor agitator," Is the merchant or manufacturer who deliberately sets himself at work to keep the laborers employed by him in a condition of dependency which renders them helpless to combine against him. After speaking against the class of men such as Edward Atkinson whose Ideals he declares are purely material, Mr. Roosevelt says: "There is not Baking PURE HOME ANNO YAK CES. Bab GrU-ves Over c:i« Fact TJiat Men curt Wt-nieu Strvuutn ai« HO Ungrateful XowuilitT* fur Ivliidnc«> Sliowu Tin in- in the world a moro Ignoble character than the mero money-gettlng-, American who la insensible to 'every duty, regardless of every principle, bint only on amassing a fortune."

Think of the uchappi- nos3 of the woman who, giving hor lova to a man, .finds out that she is merely a play toy in his Ufa. Thiak of the man who gives to a woman his friendship and bla confidence, only to discover that big friendship is laughed at and his secrets are handed over to the gosslpi. Think of the woman who In theunhappiest hour of her life, throwing hereelf in the arras of another woman, tells of her trouble and her woe. only to hear afterwards that the hour of her unhapplneia is dramatically described for the benefit of a ladies' luncheon party. Think of the mistress who makes a comfortable home and gives a proper respect to a servant only to discover that, mate, rlally her belongings are stolen, and, mentally she Is badly treated, lnas« much as the family talk at the table is told to the maids of Mrs. Tom, Mra. Dick and Mri. Harry, and by them repeated to their mistresses. ABOUT DNGBATEFGL DOMESTICS. There is a decided tendency to condoling with the average servant. It Is quite time that this "cipher in society" as Elizabeth Stuart Phelps called her, and proved her not to be, should be truthfully talked about.

It will soon be that the gamblers who are not able to go to Monte Carlo will hare to go to work. them. A peasant girl, wearing her first pair of shoes, ignorant of aoy food better than bread and tea, Is taken into a reputable household, given a comfortable bed in which to sleep, a something she nevor knew before, as at home there wore five or six others to sleep with her, provided with proper belongings that she may keep clean, is taught the duties of B. waitress, and Is given good wages and consideration, At the end of a year the shy, retiring peasant girl has, nine times out of ton, developed Into a loud-mouthed, loudly.dressed and sly American citizen. She listens attentively to all that la said at the table and among the family. She gets to know the friends of tho house, and she is very keen at gaining a tip. One day an objection Is made to her staying out until 2 o'clock In the morning and coming In scented with bad whisky, and rousing- tbo house, hold with doubtful melody. After permitting herself to say all the impudent, things possible, she departs, and proves that she is not a cipher in society, but a power, and a strong one. by writing anonymous letters to ladies, whose names she has heard mentioned by her former mistress, and who have been discussed In her pros. enoe by members of the family. A deal of trouble Is made, a number of women are doubtful of their friends, and yet what was said was not meant to be? malicious, and was supposed to have died the minute after it was born. This is the gratitude thown by the average maid, and is but one of many such that have come to my knowledge. RETURNING EVIL FOH GOOD. A girl who lauded here without even an extra frock, was taken by a young lady and trained as a first-class maid. Her masculine admirers were many, and in time grew to be objectionable. Then the mistress discovered that her maid was about to become a mother; she spoke to her about it, offered to give her any help she could, and her kindneis was met by A flat denial and a flood of filthy words. The afternoon saw the maid depart, but the next day a letter, badly written and Bpelle-i worse, reached tho fiance of her late mistreat, and he was informed of horrible things that never happened, of visits from men that occurred, and, as tte recipient of thin ly!ng letter happened to be a jealoui man, It waa many days before the woman he loved and the woman who loved him could feel absolutely happy. And this uabapplness waa caused by an ignorant creature, who returned gratitude with malice, and with the wicked tools of the ijrnorant. It eeemi a dreadful thing for women to be governed in this way, and yet there are few htncet in which there doei not eiiit a dread of what might be done by a dliohargad and angry eervaat; Not long ago, luncheon with a well-kiown woman, »omething wai laid by on* of the guesu of the fear she bad of appearing ID a certain, notorious paper. Her hnstess sent the tutler from tho room, sod then fa ; d to her; "My dear, nevr-r say anything like that before ?. foreign servant, mv servntits may be ifii'me.te vriih you-s, a:;d if one of vcurs btippens to get KDpry ar>d WI-QL-S to vent her spite »•?.••:!'••»!; you, there in a weapon that ' v-.-u yourself have ru 1 . Into her ban^f." HOW A WOMAN'S LIFE AVAS JiUlXED Here is auotber. Sotno years .12-0 a very well known woman, living in one cf-our large cities, was eued by hsr husband for divorce. This wom«n was ao innocent woman, but a fool, I/ehehad been a knave she would have come cue of everything successfully. Nobody clung to her like hor maid, but tho very day before the trial she disappeared, and the next day was the chief witness against her. Her foolish mistress had given her confidence to hor, and things itbat were absolutely Innocent in themselves, told by the servant were black ai Erebus. The result was that, for tbe sake of a hundred dollars, one woman had ruined another woman's life, brought shame to her children, and an end to all happiness to one who was only 24 years old, and simply foolish. HOW SKRVAKT3 HANDLE FINE GOODS. The solution of the question would seem to be that, while physically we should make those in our service com. fortable, we should regard them with suspicion, and always believe the worst of them. But how can you do this? And how can I do this? You and I who have had our closets and our dressing cases robbed, ourselves gossiped about, and our faith knocked into what they would call "smith, ereens." It seems a dreadful thing, but the woman among my acquaint, ancei who has the best servants, and gets the best service treats these so- called ciphers as If they were Indeed naught. They are given nothing beyond their wages; they are always spoken to in a positive, and never In a pleasant manner, and if oven a tumbler is broken its full value is deducted from their wages. The treatment given 1<9 beautiful belongings by ser. vants is something monstrous. The entire dishcloth is shoved into a tiny llquorglass, and then Bridget teils you "IT JOST PARTED IK MEHAXDS, MA' AM.' Tho faucet in tbe kitchen sticks, and a silver epoon ie used to turn it with, and then tho pride of the kitchen says it must have been scratched on tbo table! Fino napery wipes the stove, and embroidered teacloths are handed over to visitors as coming out of the ragbag, A SQO handkerchief is missing, and, if it should bo discovered again, there is wide-mouthed wonder, and it Is insisted upon that "It is the one, miss, that the mistress give me Christmas. 1 ' That was a wise nran who told his butler that he was at perfect liberty to help himself to either brandy or whleky whenever he wished, but that he would be discharged the very mln« ute It was dlscoversd that he had supplied the lack with water. How Is It all to end? American girls live wretched lives, work for starvation wages In factories, shops and at trades, but will not go out as domestic servants, and yet they would be more comfortable, they would make more money, and, being more at ease, would, it seems to me, bs more self.respectful. The RELATIONS BETWZEJf XISTRKSi AND 31 AID would, if the maid were a decent, re spectable American girl, partake almost of a maternal character; but tbo American girl is obstinate, and eo, into the bosom of th« family comes that dangerous element gathered from the lowest stratum of society—the immoral Swede, the sulky German, the dishonest and lying Irish girl and the Impertinent and positive Scotch, woman. In their own countries these girls would not be received in respect able families. The servants are chosen from a better grade; but we, we take to our arms, to our confidence, we give the honor of the household, many times, to the vilest and lowest of women. We give them comforts they have never known, and in time they scorn them. We give them care they have never had, and In time it is laughed at. We show them consider atlon such as they hare never dreamed of. and they wonder what we do it for. They are mean enough to say, as I heard one maid. "WHAT IS SHE JLLTTATS SO POLITE TO ME FOR?"

The last being worse than all the rest put together. And there was offered to the woman seeking a home a com. fortable room to herself, plenty of clean linen, a pleasant place In which to eat, a gentle mistress (not myself, 1 may mention), care when illness called for it, a share in all pleasures at holiday times, generous payment, and ft never-ceasing consideration, and the return hai always been the earns.

This is a very feminine talk- It ie between my women friends and me. I feol that they have all been sufferers, and it msy interest them to know that on the list, among them and of them, is BAB. But when I finish" and "go to trie room I may take a cup of tea, if you're still agreeable. You see," she continued confidentially, "I promised to' •\vrite my girls at home all about what I sec in Washing-ton, and so I'm taldn" notes." This story js discounted by that of a young woman who, when sb6 was receiving at the house of one of the secretaries, asked a guest if she could pour a cup of tea far her. "3s T o,'J said the woman, "no ten; hut I would bo much obliged for a chop." The spirit' in which an aged gentleman asked for some fruit was quite u different one, "I don't drink tea," said he to the bo-' witching bud behind the samovar.

Which Obllecn the Now Czurlun to Drcni for Her YVcildlng Bvforc a UlHtorlc Table. Russians arc noted for their superstitions and for the numerous legends they bavo handed clown from father to son. A curious legend is related in an, English paper concerning the Russian custom which prescribes that the new czarina must dress on her wedding morn before the- historical wedding table which belonged to Czarina Maria Ivanowna. This precious piece of furniture was the gift from her imperial fiance, and the legend relates it is tho most wonderful nuptial gift known. Tho young Princess Maria was very pleased and proud of it; she was also very beautiful, loved and was adored by'her future husband. On her wedding day, while her ladies were dressing her before this table, all at onco the precious mirror did not reflect the superb beauty of Maria Ivanowna nor her magnificent dress nor her magnificent gems. Instead of that a rapid vision passed over its clear surface, scenes of bloodshed, struggles, misfortunes, in which appeared the figures of her husband and of sons and grandchildren destined to wear the heavy crown of tho Muscovite succession. The poor girl was terribly frightened and famted at the sight of these dreadful scenes, and to which future events gave a tragic confirmation. Maria Ivanowna, to whom this revelation was one of ad vice and instruction, expressed the desire that the golden toilet table should be used by each successive czarina on the day of her bridal, with the intention, perhaps, that ii tho vision should again reveal the mysteries of the future to another bride It Inve:.(.c<l Uj- n Wnff to Trick th« Great M:»!ono. Perhaps the deftest artist in this de- partmcut of fabrication was Gcorgo Steevcas, the Shakespearean comment tator. Animated by nn impish spirit of trickery, to which jenlons.y of rival antiquaries mny have lent' a spico of malice, he industriously devised cunning snares for their feet. He would, 1 for example, disseminate- fictitious il- I lustrations of Shakespeare's text, in or-' ' dcr th.it ?,!a!onc, who 'wns his chief butt, might be entrapped ir.to ndopticg them, and give hi.-n the gratification -of correcting the blunder in his next cdl-' j tion. Under the pseixlonyrncs of .Col-' , Hns au<l Araner, lie would insert para: graphs in the daily press purporting to | be curious extracts from rare books, copies of which no one who wished to verify the passages ever succeeded in discovering. Among these curiosities was the romantic story that has found its way into Todd's "Life of Milton", of the poet's having been sewn asleep under a tree by a lady who became enamored of his' beauty and placed in bis hand some Impassioned verses -of Guarini, which, when he awoke, so fired his fancy that he made a journey to Italy in the hope of tracing her. Another was the story of the deadly upas tree of Java, which long obtained credit ns one of the fairy tales of science. Feniiltlet lor Careleu Coach mon. When an omnibus or cab driver runs over a foot passenger in London streets the possible loss of a license exercises a wholesome restraint The private coachman and the driver of the tradesman's cart have far less compunction in teaching- an old gentleman to get out of their way by running- him down. At the worst they are fined; not infrequently their fines are paid by a sympathizing- employer. But no one pays a poor cabman's fines, and the loss of a license in addition means the loss of his means of alivelih ood.
