In the land that is known as Somewhere KIse Are the friends that are friends indeed. And the neighbors there have a kindly air. With a smile or a tear as you need. The people are happy in Somewhere Else, And living is Klled with cheer; But lo, ere we fly to that place, let us try To make Somewhere HIse of Right Here ! A vacuum cleaocr has been Invent ed which can be operated wherever there la a hydrant In the house. A pipe of tbe right diameter la acrewed Into tbe hydrant's mouth and runs down to tbe bottom of tbe sink. A spiral nofiie fits tbe pipe }iut below tbe mouth of the hydrant. An angular pipe opens into the vertical pipe lm> mediately below the oostle and slope! up to connect with a rubber h«>se oa the guiding rod. To clean tbe room you turn on tbe water and guide tbe rod over the car> pet. After traversing the spiral noa- zle tbe water whirls around and passes the opening of an angular pipe, forc ing out all the air near It.

AT NKHITKAIJ Night tails within the garden of the heart With healing balm for every flower that blows And from its dewy chalice doth impart New perfume to the rose. Deep iti the shadowy dells the tailing brook Drowses its murmur. Water lilies cool Sleep on the placid wave, while from some nook A wood rat seeks the pool. Startling the reeds above a sunken star It sets a dance in black depths profound: And through the low grass cometh from afar The cricket’s chirping sound. The fragrance of all blooms is bortie upon The rise and falling of the Htful breeze; And deep in golden blossoms of the sun Sleep the gold-banded bees. O magic Night that hold’s! in thy embrace A rarer sweetness than Is born of day. How gladly doth the eager earth her face Turn from the sun away ! Prodigal Providence. “I don't like to see warring armies call too persistently on Providence. It savors of arrogance and seU-rlght« eousness. i’rovldence may take re* venge." 'I'he s(t«aker was a certain blihop, who went on: "There was once a young couple that bad no children. Tbe husband was anxious that heaven should bless them with a girl, the wife was anxious for a boy. Being very religious, both be* sought Providence morning, noon, and night to grant his or her destre. "And Providence beard. Providence granted both prayers.”—London Tlt- Blts. WAITING PATIENTLY. | ConslanI Altendant al Play was | Uuund tu He on Hand When Hrrlng Wile Was CauKht by | Husband. A problem play was being pro duced in Chicago. One evening it was discovered that a certain man, evidently from the rural dis trict, had attended the play six nights In succession and always sat well down in front. Each night he leaned forward eagerly in his seat and drank in the words of the drama. These facts were communicated 10 the theater press agent, who scented a good story. Approach ing the interested spectator be tween the acts, he apologized for his intrusion and said : "Would you mind telling tne just why you are so interested in this play ? Do you know some member of the cast?” "No," said the man from the outlands. "That ain't it. But I'll tell you about it. You know the scene in the private room of the restaurant, where the dark man and the other man’s wife get up and leave by the left-hand door just a moment before the woman's husband enters by the right-hand door ?" "Yes," said the press agent ex pectantly. "Well," said the interested spec lator, "some night the husband's going to come in before they leave.' E. Pinkban i.....

HE WAS SORRV HE SPOKE. "Why, you women ought to be thankful that you do not live in foreign countries, where thev yoke up women with mules and make them pull together," said a rough opponent to woman suffrage to a gentle, but strong-minded suffra gist. "You are married, are you not?" sheasked. "Yes!" he snapped. "Well." she rejoined, "then for eign countries are nut the only ones In which women are yoked with mules."
