Mils.? Belly advised Mi^s A.une to keep quiet ami not nisike a goose of herself. Then, she began to talk about tears. . • TEAKS AS A'WOMAN'S WEAPON. "Tears," she said, "properly managed, are without doiibr the liuest weapon iu the womanly anno-.-y. ir. is only when one gi.-l.s very red in the face, mid when one's eyes swell, thai they are not to be indulged .in, bin even then the skillful use of the ha'ndUercbler w'll make a slight practice possible. Weeping i.s th'j. .shan'pshootiiig ot the gentler sex. It i.s very <lirect, and seldom fails in its aim, A woman should be permitted to cry for anything from a moon to a millionaire, and hor ohaneciT of getting either will bo greatly increased by the proper •introduction of leaiis. Slrake-speare knew 'the value of tears, so did Byron, so dhl Shelley, so did Tom Mooro, and so did Hriis later poet Tennyson, of whom so many people speak well, though for my part I prefer more manly writers. As I said, before, a woman must manage her tears properly. There are times :uid seasons wliou Ica.i^ are really of no earthly use, being SIMPLY A WASTE OF AMMUNITION, but properly directed, tears will, ulnc- times out of ten, 1 transport to the femm- 110 fuc-t either the special moon or Che special millionaire Hiat is longed for, People talk, my desir, about frhc world being the same ol<l world aiul tho same old emotin.s governing' it, a-nil everything ol' that kind, but there are cycles of emotion just as .certainly a.s there a.re fides and changes of the nioim, oil fashions and of polUiCe.

It is claimed for this trab that all jolting arising from the condition of the roads is overcome by a layer of air. This hub weighs about one pound more than the ordinary hub. Its diameter is 4% inches, and it is claimed that it cau be applied to all styles of wheels without any change in the other mechanism. — New York Times. _ Cycling Speed Ordinance Fulled. Atlanta attempted to pass a cycling ordinance limiting the speed of oyoliets on the city streets to Fix miles per hour.
