GREEN. a Salesman af the Silk Counter Jjcver ;imile(l Again, Not long ago n young wonian set out in quest of a certain difficult shade of Nile green satin. She oarrled a sample, An anxious look set itself in two stubborn little wrinkles between her mild blue eyes and marred to some extent the sweet repose of her countenance. In and She wandered up Broadway. out of all the big stores on both sides of the great thoroughfare she treaded her tedious way. She stood staunchly at all the silk counters and caused stacks and stacks of pieces of green satin to be brought down, unfolded and piled up into a very mountain of silk. But still the right shade didn't appear. At last the polite salesman bethought Liin of ii sample, and he asked her if she had one to match. She produced the fragment of well worn satin, and the salesman knew at a glance that it was an old, almost obsolete shade, and' probably couldn't be matched in New York. Ho told her so. Well, couldn't he get it for her, 6he asked with a pretty little pout, as it was very important. A Broadway house was too busy to, call a halt for the purpose of matching impossible samples. But the woman was persevering. She tried Fourteenth street next, and exhausted every silk stock and the patience of many salesmen on that thoroughfare without finding what she None of the floor walkers in wanted. these establishments was "green" enough to promise to get the satin for her. There remained, however, Sixth avenue to come, and she went up town and down town, through every store, until she got up to Twenty-thirstreet. Then, with fire in her eye, she sailed around the corner, and at last lauded in a big bazar not a thousand miles from tho Fifth Avenue hotel. The purveyor of silks was most obliglie brought down piece after ing, piece of light green, dark green, olive green and every other sort of green except the shade she wanted, which stubbornly remained invisible. At last, in a moment of weakness, he took pity on the young damsel. lie felt sorry for her. Besides, she hadn't eaten a morsel of lunch and looked as if she were about to cry. Anyway, she was well dressed and not bad looking, and he thought sho might develop Into a good customer if he took a little trouble to oblige her. So witli his best sinHe. the one lie kept for Just such occasions, he took the sample and promised that if she would call two days later ho would have the exact shade she wanted. Well, that man actually made it his business to send down town and have a search made through half a dozen wholesale houses for that obsolete shade of Nils green uitin, which materialized at last in nn old millinery stock on lower Broadway. The young woman was on hand The match was a perfect promptly. one. "What is tho price?" she demanded in a business like way.

Now many of tlicin find that chap-book- terior; they succeed occasionally in borrowing the garments of some neighboring virtue and passing themselves off as relations of his. Even when their character as faults cannot be denied, people are found to palliate them and minimize their evil tendency. Among such sins are envy, jealousy, pride and bad temper. To say that such a one has rather a hasty temper, or that he is difficult to get on with, or that he is too fond of having his own way, is hardly, in the opinion of many people, to say anything really to his discredit; yet, when we analyze that disposition of mind which is commonly called "bad temper" wo shall find that it is neither more nor less than the malignant desire of making other people suffer pain. Even in the case of a "hot" or hasty temper, this is true. No one would use angry words to another if he did not mean that they should wound, and intend to relieve his angry feelings by the suffering they may cause. Chambers' Journal. The First Idea of Perpetual Motion. Honecourt, a Flemish architect of the thirteenth century, left a drawing of a wheel that was the problem of perpetual motion with this memorandum: "Many a time have skillful workmen tried to contrive a wheel that shall turn of itself. Here is a way to make such a one, by an uneven number of mallets or by quicksilver." But unfortunately he did. not leave the wheel. From his time on seekers after perpetual motion have been numerous, many of them supposed to be very respectable and intelligent men. Among the receivers of eighty-siEnglish and twenty-thre- e French patents taken out for perpetual motions between 1800 and 1809 were a colonial bishop, a professor of philosophy, one of languages, two barons, a Knight Templar, a doctor of medicine, two civil engineers, several mechanical engineers, etc. Chicago Herald. x It Was the Moon. Of CarlyleMr. Goldwin Smith tells one excellent story: One evening the party were seated on the terrace at Lady Ashburton's, in contemplation of the glorious moon that shone overhead. "Poor old woman!" broke out Carlyle, suddenly. The company looked astounded, but it soon transpired that the reference was not strictly personal. The sage was merely apostrophizing' the moon, and condoling with her upon the scene of folly she was doomed to look down upon ou every hand except, perhaps, at Chelsea. Pall Mall Gazette.
