Mr. S. You know, Trixy, dear, I only speak for your own good certainly I am doing very well at present, but markets fluctuate and a fellow never knows his luck you might try and look after things a little better. Here's a note from the butcher requesting a check for last months account, and I'm positive I gave you a note to settle it with, dldut 1? Mrs. S. Yes; but, George, dear, don't you remember that was the morning I was going shopping with Adele, and she bought such heaps of lovely thing! that I had to buy that pretty cloak you admired so last night, and so and so the ten pounds went, and I forgot all about the butcher, but you can easily send him a check now. Mr. S. I know that, but it Is the principle of the thing, Trixy. You know very well I hate having bills run up, and when I give you money for an especial purpose, it should be used for that, and not flung away on unnecessary rubbish. Mrs. S. (indignantly) Fancy, George, calling my lovely coat unnecessary ruts' blah! And you said yourself how well it suited me! Bother the butcher! Why dun't you have a housekeeper? You know I told you before you married me that I didn't know anything about housekeeping, but you Bald then, it didn't matur; you loved me, anl now (beginning to cry into a dalnhf d handkerchief)! Mr. S. (hastily) There, there, mr darling, don't cry! I am a brute, anl ought to remember what a baby you are. Come here (sits her on his knee and wipes away tears)! Now smile! And tell me what I shall bring you home, or what we shall do to earn your forgiveness. Mrs. S. (gleefully, putting her arm round his neck, and patting his head, which is slightly bald) You are a dear old George! Now, let me see. What shall we do? 0, I know! You get some seats for the Vaudeville. They say the seats there say the piece there is awfully funny, and Just a Jeetle naughty, and then we'll have supper afterward at Mor-anl'- s. ten-pou- lace-edge- ht Mr. S. My dear Trixy, I couldn't take you to Morani's. Mrs. S. But why not? You told me you went there the other night with Mr. Smith and Mr. Jones. Mr. S. Yes. but they asked me, and, besides, that's a different thing. It's not a fit place to take a child like you to. Mrs. S. (pouting) Sometimes I wonder if I ever shall be a woman! But, George, dear, I'm married, so why can't I go? I do want to see what it is like. Mr. S, (decisive)') Impossible, my dear. I'll get the scats, and you must be content with the Sarny for supper. Now, I really must be olf. Mrs. S. (resignedly) Very well, George, dear, and I'll put my new gown on and try to look my prettiest. You Sweder'a playing. I simply can't, it's so classical. Adele Nonsense! She plays lots Of tuny things: Hungarian dances, and so on. Now, for my other reason. Jack and Capt. Jones and I are going to sea The Shop Girl" night, and to supper at Morani's after, and we want you to make a fourth. Will you? Mrs. S. 1 should love it, but George won't let me. I'm sure. I asked him this morning to take me to Morani's to supper, and he said in his steraest way: Impossible!' Adele My dear child, what utter nonsense! Never mind, dont say anything to him about the supper part till afterwards, and then you can tell him we took you and 0, you know what to say. Mrs. 8. But would it bo right, Adele? Adele Gracious, what a baby it Is! Of course, if you are with us there can't be any harm. Now, ta-t- a, Trixy, dear. Shall expect you this afternoon about 6, and well make the final arrangements for night (Exit Mrs. Smithson.) 5:30 p. m. same day. Mrs. Smithson's drawing-roopleasantly and Intelligently furnished, and occupied by the usual sort of suburban matrons and daughters; the vicars wife, a g man or two, and Mias Sweder, a severe-face- d pianist (of uncertain age); Mrs. Simpkins in the most bewitching of costume, sitting beside the vicar's wife. Mrs. S. (in a stage whisper to V. W., while Miss Sweder is playing) So charming, isn't it? But we oughtnt to talk, ought we? Music always makes me more cbutly than usual, doesnt it you? No! ah, perhaps you get it taken out of you, as George says, at mothers meetings, and bo on. (Playing suddenly ceases.) Mrs. 8. (to Miss Sweder) How charming! Thought I recognized it. One of those delicious Hungarian things, isn't it? Miss Sweder (sternly) No; it is Grieg's Bridal March." Mrs. S. Of course! How stupid of me! Dear Miss Sweder, bow beautifully you play! 1 wish I could play like that, but I suppose it takes yesxs and years of practice to attain such frowns (Miss Sweder perfection. darkly, and Adele whispers hurriedly to Mrs. Simpkins.) Mrs. 8. O! I'm so sorry, I didn't exactly mean that, but I'm always saying the wrong thing. I'm such a silly little thing! (She is promptly hustled away by Mrs. Smithson to another part of the room.)

Nearly all the tables occupied or chairs turned up to show they are engaged. Enter Mr. and Mra. Smithson, Capt. Jonea, suid Mrs. Simpkins, the latter half shrinking, half delighted, like a child with a stolen piece of bread and Jam. They find their table and sit down. Mrs. S. (looking round) I don't see anything ao funny. Adele. Just look at that woman over there though, lock at the lovely gown and diamonds et c has on and, 0, Adele! she's picking her bones with her teeth and throwing them on the floor! Supper proceeds, and the fun (?) grows fast, and merry shouts of laughter mingle with popping of champagne corks, and the occupants of the room begin to be scarcely discernible through the clouds of cigar and cigaret smoke. Capt. Jones is solemnly assuring Mrs. Simpkins that it la the proper thing nowadays for a lady to smoke at least one tiny cigaret, when he sees her pretty flushed face stiffen into a horroi struck look and hears her ejaculate "George! Adele (hurriedly) Where, Trixy? Don't be silly, child, as if you were committing a crime! i'll take all the blame on myself. 0, Mr. Simpkins, how Jolly! You are Just In time O take Trixy home. Now don't f '1 (as she sees the black look on Mr. Simpkins face), we made her come with us here, and you are not to be cross with her. O, don't take her off so soon! Mr. S Thank you, Mra.

Funny old dear, George Is I will go to Morani's to supper some time or other though. I'm sure there's no harm, and Adele says its ripping fun (looking out of window) why here comes Adele. How early for her to be out! (Eenter Adele Mrs. Smlth-- , sona tall, and fashionably-dressed woman. Mutual kissing). Mrs. brings you out so early, Adele? I thought you never got up till 11,' and It's only half past 10 pretty. Good-b- y, Jolly-lookin- g, now. Adele Two reasons, you little scoffer! First, I forgot yesterday to tell you I wanted you to come In this afternoon. I've some people coming to tea, and Sweder, that girl who playa so sell. Is coming. Mrs. 8. Of course I'll come, dear, but don't ask me to understand Misa Miss THE NAZARETH HOUSE. Don Four Tliurs It Wh Mlrat-alousl- Through the Air. On May lu, 1291, the house of Nazareth in which Jesus and the Virgin Mary had lived was miraculously severed from Its foundations, borne through the air and deposited on the hill of Tersattn, In Illyria, says the Saturday Review. Here it remained for three years, but on Dec. 10, 1294, it was again miraculously removed by the Virgin herself and the holy angels this time into Italy and set in the midst of a wood belonging to a certain Lady Lauretta, In the neighborhood of Recaaati. Owing, however, to the constant violence of robbers, w ho attacked the pilgrims flocking to this sacred spot, on a morning in August, 1295, the houso was again miraculously removed through the air a mile farther inland, dll it rested on a cultivated hill, the Joint property of two brothers, the Counts Stephen and Simon Rinaldi ' For a time all went well, hi these brothers, overcome by a desire o. gain, aroused In them by the rich offerings of the pilgrims, liegan at length a violent quarrel as to which one of them was the owner of the ground; and the sacred building, being in danger of defilement through fratricidal bloodshed, was a fourth time supcrnaturally borne off, and finally planted in the middle of a public road belonging to the commune of Recanatl, crushing down In lta descent, as was discovered in 1751, a certain prickly hush by the roadside, and covering over some acorn shells, a anailshell and a dried nut. Almost immediately the authorities hastened to surround the holy house with a brick wall, for the purposes of support, inasmuch as it hnd no foundations, hilt the sacred walls would never adhere to the new ones and broke asunder so far that a little child could pass between with a light In his hand to show the people, when necessary, the truth of this separation.

And aa this subject is of interest to many, 1 will relate a series of dreams In my own experience to which possibly some one can give a clearer interpretation than I.

It meant but a few hours, or days at the most 1 was unconscious at times. But through it all the idea was firmly rooted in my mind that there is more life for me, and I cannot, 1 will not go. There followed four days of complete darkness, and when a little natural sleep came It was accompanied each night for three weeks by a dream of my encounter with some vicious animal beginning sith a hull, then a boar, and next a large mastiff. This order never varied. When the bull came lusard me I easily and quickly vaulted the fence as he pinned it below me. In my encounter with the boar J grabbed him by the throat and threw hint on his liuek, thus getiing safely away. (Next morning the biceps aud supinators of my urnt were so sore that they had to be rublicd.) Next the mastiff approached. 1 quickly grasped him by the larnyx till I could get hold of his tongue. This grip seemed to affect the muscles of my wrist and hand alone, which were Just us sore and stiff as formerly. After the explrutiou of three weeks I had no dreams whatever for a few nights. When they returned I became more and more worried, until, after the lust o?e, wmieth'vig said to me; mflao ovtao vbtao vLta vbta vabgaowy "This is good, not evil; you are surely a conqueror. However, not much physical improvement was visible. In the next dream I saw a blue and white light growing into a crown, lu which the word "Power" In bright letters was Inclosed. This seemed to give me hope, also strength and courage, and 1 felt somewhat better. Three nights later I dreamed of being on the lake of Galilee, in (he boat with Christ and his dlseiples; and such a picture as lay before me Is hard to describe. The disciples seemed agitated, the sea was rough and the boat frail; yet 1 was calm. The disciples looked at me, then at the sleeping Christ, but did not speak. I was half reclining, hut why so calm I know not. Presently the spokesman of the group arose and whispered to the rest, and aa they got Masup he touched Christ and said: ter, carest Thou not that we perish?" Christs face as He anise and rebuked them wore an expression of mingled gentleness, sternness and pity. I was thrilled aa He held nut His hand wlih a graceful movement and said: "Peace; be still. Then came a remarkable calm a beautiful sunset on a sna of glass. 1 awoke feeling much belter and with strong hope. My Improvement was very noticeable from this time forward. Then came a lull, which was followed by dreams of a different character for another period of three weeks. I heard glorious music by a rholr, commencing regularly at sunset and continuing until I was soothed to sleep. I fell more vigorous after this experience. Then for the next three weeks I saw only a beautiful blue and white fight, just as I fell asleep. As I went about, obliged to mingle In tho affairs of dally life.

In studying Brigham Young I have nut sought to know the man as he lives in Mormon literature, with a glowing religious halo about his eminently business-lik- e brow, writes William E. Smyth In the November Atluntic. I have sought rather to find him through conversations with some of his favorite captains and through the letters he wroia them when they were engaged in perilous missions to wild districts in the unexplored west. These were the men who lived near to him and knew- tlie thoughts that throbbed in his active brain. None of tnese men has told ms of any striking religious thought which he ultcred from the pulpit, hut all have said that he insisted (hat it paid to plow deep and plant alfalfa. They have related with especial pride their talks with the president" at evening camp-firewhen he would plan, with wonderful aectiraey, irrigation canals and village sites to be nimlc in connection with the conquest of some new valley they had explored. The plans which be traced on the ground with his cane by the firelight generally anticipated very closely the later results of surveys. Ills letters to these captains were full of lusiriisHons about provisions, coming emigrant parlies and the treatment of the Indians. They always closed with a devout refer tide in divine Frovideune, but the umb-rtlug spirit was that of the sturdy Industrial chieftain aiming at the conquest of the waste places. This mail's dreams were of empire, in every filler of his body, in every lieu l of his brain and heart, he was n materialist. All his buildings, ljke all his philosophies, .were fashioned on strong and simple lines. They were made not to look beautiful but to serve useful purposes and to last long. That he used the power of the church relentlessly to accomplish his ends can-nbe denied. But the church, however much it may have meant to others, was with him only one of the means and not the great object of his ambition. His first act in Utah was to raise the American flag and proclaim himself governor of "the, state of Deseret" land of the working bee. et PHYSICIAN SAYS WOOLEN who PHYSICIAN given much thought to the hygiene of clolhing has eonie to the conclusion many deaths are caused by heavy woolen underclothing, says the New York World. It can be proved that flannels are often the cause of severe colds. To have a cold la to he In a diseased condition and that means a kiss of vitality and a shortening of life. It may even mean death. One can easily demonstrate in ones own person on a email seule the ill effects of excessive flannels. Bind your hand in thick woolen hnnilugeM uud leave it in that eoniiltiun for a night, in the morning you will find it dump and flabby, the iiorea all open. It is in the most susceptible condition fur ciitching cold. If the whole hotly were brought to the same state the result of exposure to cold air would Inevitably be disastrous. That the whole body is often brought to a nearly similar rendition ia certain. The majority of people during the winter incase themselves In heavy, tight woolen or llunnel garments. These provoke perspiration ami do not absorb it. The result is that the wearer's skin ia hot, damp uml highly suacept.i-lii- e to the inflammatory effects of cold. A slightly lowered temperature can hardly fall to bring on a cold. Heavy woolen underclothing Is able to do all the more barm bccuure It has tho weight of ancient domestic tradition. Few people dare to be wiser than tbelr grandmothers. Woolen underclothing, according to modern experience, should be as light as Is consistent with comfort. There are many persons who go through the winter healthily in cotton underwear, and these are probably the most fortunate class of the population. g But the qualities of prool are not to be Ignored. One of Its great properties Is that it is a bud conductor of beat. The heat of the body, therefore, is not given out and does not absorb perspiration freely. This is a quality of doubtful value. While It Is agreeable not to have your underclothing glued to your ekln it is injurious to carry a deposit of moisture which may become cold and do harm in all pnrls of the body. The object, therefore, should lie to wear underclothing which docs not cause excessive perspiration. It should be light and loose. Wool la apparently the best material for the majority of the people. The siihject of rolds receives too little attention. Many people are resigned to the perpetual possession of them.

Colds are probably the rhief cause of illness and disease among human beings. They give Utils trouble to animals, who wear nu clolhing. Arguing fsom these facts, some enthusiasts would say that Unless clothing you wear and the more you expose yourself the healthier you will tie. But n state of civilization u:' considerable antiquity has made it necessary for man to preserve his natural heat by artificial means. It is not permissible to abandon clothing en tin-Ivithis country. Nor Is It advisable wear as little as the public authorities will permit (luring an Amrriran winter.
