WM. ALLEN WHITE ON SOCIETY.
A Commentary on Uuim-n ami their
Ways The ;olW-n Hulf Kn er-il.
A young woman in this town went
visiting iu Is'fw York. She was visit
ing some sutinrba i people in an aris
tocratic n.'ighi)iirlio.nl outside oi
town. She we. t to a party and was
introduced to u innul'r of girls.
They seemed niiv enough t;ivls and
Bhe had a good time. Hut when she
met them down in New York they
diden't know herfrom a laldiit. Sh
afterwards heard iliat they s; id lier
father was a storekeeper.
And she had a "ood civ at the
crueltv of woiiKh iu general. Sh.
said she would not treat a dog tint
But she came home and was visit
ing at a house where a girl was win k
ing for her living. She and the
gills and other g;ns at the h his -had
a good time on afternoon to
gether. And then a tew days laui
the proud storekeeper's daughter
sailed down :owu in in-r I'.utYy white
duds and passed thi girl she had
met a few days before and cut lu-r
head. Could she le speaking m
every hired girl she met on the street?
Why, of course not. And tin sec
ond girl went home and had a good
cry. And she Aoulden't treat a d g
And she went to a dance in the
country, where they moved the things
out from the front room and the
kitchen, and put the tiddler and th-caller-off
iu the bed room door. And
she met a bigfooted Dutch country
girl, who danced on her h 'els and
threw the boys arouul like sacks of
flour. And the country girl thought
the city girl with her big hat and
town clothes vas just the sweetest
thing out of heaven. And w hen
the country girl came to town look
ing like a fright one Saturday night
she ran into the city girl and her
chum from the West Side on parade
with a dapper little clerk and a pret
ty looking tin-horn gambler whom
all the girls at the shirt waist dance
said was "iust dead swell." Aud do
you think the town girl epoke to the
big-foot country girl with her funny
' clothes on?
Not on your tintype. She turned
her face the other way and she and
the other girl and the boys sailed by
prouder than a peacock. Aud so i
goes. Cruelty and vanity stahbiug
their wav through the world. Worn
en are worse than men. Men accept
one another for what they are really
worth. A rich man. who has hon
estly earned his money, thinks noth
ing of talking to some one's hired
man. The railroad brakeman and
the railroad president have relations
that their wives never could assume
. providing that their wives are
fools. A man is proud of the fact
that he has worked with his hands
and come up in the world. There
was a woman at the Federation of
Clubs last spring who was once head
waiter at the Whitlev, and though
she was a cultivated, honest woman
be was ashamed of it, and if the
Gazette had printed thi fact t the
time the federation would have mob
bed the office.
Now vhy? If her husband had
made money, he would have been
proud of his rise. Women are fun
ny. This a funny world.
Pulse Tells Aire And Sex.
How old are you? ask your pulse.
The human pulHe has a wide range,
even in perfectly healthy persons.
The female pulse always beats faster
than the male, and from birth to
death the pulse beats steadily de
crease. It has been said by great
authorities that the age and sex of a
person could be ascertained by the
rate of the pulse alone. Babies at
birth have a pulse beat of 100 times
a minute in case of a girl and 150 in
the case of boys. At the age of four
or fire the pulse beats will have fall
en respectively to 110 and 100.
Maidens' and youths' pulse average
95 and 90. Mature men and wo
men average (SO aud 85. Elderly
men and wo nen hare an wverage of
60 aud 50. An old woman's rarely
if ever, sinks below 50, but among
old men a pulse beat below 50 is
quite common. There are however,
great variations consistent with
health. Napoleon's pulse is said to
have beaten only 44 times a minute.

The trouble with kissing a girl un

doll, dressed in a Buster-Brown suit
A young woman in New Y'ork has
made a number of these dolls for
her young friends and has found
them popular. A nittern for a rag
doll may be bought for. ten cent's.
After cutting out, sewing up, and
stuffing the doll, cover the face with

the features with oil-paint, thinned

IUuks are invariably judged by

his under bill, lay it back and try

Aside from the test applied to
