"I declare!" shoaled a bellboy In one of the big downtown hotels as he dashed into the lobby. "'1 declare!" he shrieked again, or at least it sounded like that.

"Well. what's the answer?" demand- ed the old man gruffly. "I declare!" came the shrill reply.   'Oh. yon do, eh?" snorted the old fellow. "'Well, why the deuce don't you ?" The bellboy cast a withering glance at him, gazed searchingly about the room and emitted a shrill "Declare!" "Say," exclaimed the old chap. col- laring the boy, "'what the dickens is wrong with you, anyway? Are you going crazy ?" "Naw, l ain't goin' crazy." replied the brass buttoned one.

The Austrian shopkeeper takes great pride In having his window dressed 1|| an attractive manner and the glass perfectly clean at all times, no matter how small the shop or how small the city. Frequently the greater part of the stock of merchandise is displayed in the windows of the smaller shops. It is much less difficult to make at- tractive displays than in American stores, as-windows open outward on hinges. Even heavy plate glass win- dows ten to fifteen feet square are so nrrauged and dressed from the street iustead of from the inside, as in Amer ice. The large windows are usually arranged in the morning before many pedestrians are on the street The wall space between shops is frequently rented by owners of adjoining stores and arranged to appear like windows. giving the appearance of being a large shop. When one wishes to examitre an article displayed in a window the proprietor or clerk goes to the street with a key, unlocks the window and takes out the article, then locks his window again. The Only Difference. Clorinda was as black as.night nd of heroic proportions, but in every pos- s|ble way she copied her slender young mistress, for whom she had a great ad- miration. "I like to look Jes' as much like you as I can," she often said. ""cause you looks Jes"like a lady drier look, Mis' Hend'sou." Clorinda intrusted all her shopping {o Mrs. Henderson and scorned the bright colors and pronounced styles af- fected by her own friends. One day she asked her mistress to buy her a pair of low shoes. As she made the re- quest she glanced with admiration at the slim little foot showing beneath the edge of a dainty skirt. "An' I want 'era Jes' exactly like yours. Mls' Hend'son." said Clorlnda. "no diff'ence 'ceptln' day's getter be wide nines, so maybe de buckle might 'pear better If 'twas a teenty mite larger'u yours."--Youth's Companion. Father's Method. During a recent slight Illness the five-year-old Teddy, usually so amia hie. flatly and obstinately refused to takehis medicine. After a somewhat prolonged and ineffectual argumem with him his mother at last set the glass of medicine down, leaned he head on her hands and "'played" [hal she was crying. A moment passed. and the tender hearted Teddy. unable longer to bear the sight of his mother's stricken attitude, inquired, "'What's !he matter, mother, dear?" With- out removing her hands from her eyes she replied. "'I'm grieved that my sou Won't take his castor oil for me" Whereupon Teddy sat up in bed and offered consolingly: "Oh. i wouldn't teal bad If I were you. mother, dear Father will be home soon. and he'll make me take it."--Dellneator.
