Importer and manufacturer of GRANITE MONUMENTS^ ITALIAN & AMERICAN 'MARBLE TABLETS, ETC, When the Princess Alexandra Ser-batoff was presented at the luxurious court of Catherine 11, two men had the most influence in the empire. One was Gregory Alexandrovitch Potemkin, the mighty minister, the other Prince Mon-omoff, the handsome favorite of the czarina. The gossiping world said that the pretty eyes of the favorite had just as much share in governing the land of all Russians as the great brain of the famous statesman. The quick eye of Prince Monomoff noticed at once the extraordinary beauty of the new court lady, and of course it was only natural that so wide awake a statesman as Potemkin, whose less pretty but nevertheless watchful eyes were always open, couldn't helj> seeing and admiring. Both men fell in love with the young princess, and in the ensuing ardent but secret struggle for her love the czarina's favorite, Monomoff, was finally the more successful. He became the devoted admirer of the princess, and the wise Potemkin, knowing that he was "not in it" any more, withdrew, burying his malice in his diplomatic heart. Thanks to his Intrigue, the new love of Prince Monomoff now became known to the czarina, who, to avoid a scandal, ordered her favorite to marry at once the girl. only natural, knowing that the young princess was not only bewitchlngly beautiful, but also enormously rich. The wedding took place with great pomp and ceremony. The young pair was overwhelmed with the costliest presents, among which the most valuable was that of the Czarina. It was a large solitaire diamond. Its wondrous fire had a beautiful color. Nothing marred the happiness of the young couple, and their honeymoon passed in joy and pleasure. Once in a happy hour the young wife approached her loving husband with this inquisitive question: "Tell me, dear, what is the value of that large diamond which you have on your finger?" Monomoff looked upon the czarina's present and did not answer for awhile. "Tell me honestly, sweetheart," continued the princess, "how much was given for that stone?" "A kiss," thoughtlessly replied Monomoff. They both laughed at the joke. "Won't you sell it to me? I will pay you double that much for it." And the charming young woman demonstrated right away her generosity by allowing her husband to • "help himself," and the price, two kisses, was willingly paid—in fact, overpaid—but of course that is none of our business. "Alexandra, If you value our lives you must not tell of this bargain to any one. You know the czarina." "I do promise to you, dear, that no soul shall learn from me the price of the diamond." "I have also promised to Catharina and told you just the same." "Yes, but I won't." And she didn't—until the next court reception. Of course she didn't mean to tell it to' a soul, and It was only by mere chance that the secret escaped her lips. During the evening her most Intimate friend, the Princess Orloff, bad admired the sparkling gem and (we must remember that all this happened In Russia) Inquired about its value. Princess Monomoff smilingly whispered into her rosy ears: "It was given to my husband for a kiss. I gave him double the amount for It. But I said this only for you and to no one else. Don't let It go farther, or It may bring us into danger." Of course Princess Orloff did not want to tell the secret to any one and, in fact, did not tell It to a soul except to the wife of General Romanoff, but she was such an Intimate friend of hers that she could be trusted without fear. And she knew also perfectly ho® to guard an Intrusted secret. Nobody learned it from her butcher bosom friend the Princess Kerchlkoff. The Princess Kerchlkoff told It to no one except to the Princess Daskoff. So the 4vell kept secret reached Princess Potemkin shortly after midnight whiskered confidentially by an unrecorded lady's rosy lips under the promise of strict secrecy. Princess Potemkin hated Princess Monomoff, and, being the wife of a great diplomat, she was herself a great Intriguer. She had maneuvered so skillfully that she approached the empress unnoticed, and when the Princess Monomoff paraded by she. remarked: Innocently: •Oh, how beautiful Is that diamond Pearl Street, M-A FRIGHTFUL BLUNDER will often cause a horrible burn, scald, oat or bruise.

Tho czarina recognized at once her gift to her former lover, but nevertheless nonchalantly said: "Yes; it is a fine stone. It must be very valuable." The princess tells everybody that it was given to her husband for a kiss, but she gave two for it. After the court ball, in the early morning, Prince and Princess Monomoff retired, giving orders to their attendants not to disturb them until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. It happened, however, that hardly one hour after they were rudely awakened by somebody who executed a lively tattoo on their bedroom door„ "Who is that? Who dares?" called out indignantly from their bedchamber the sleepy prince. "His excellency the chief of police wishes to pay his respects." In Russia every door must open before this "sesame," and in the next minute Prince Monomoff appeared in the half opened door. The chief of police was polite. "I must beg your pardon a thousand times, your excellency, but I must disturb you at this unseemly hour. 1 regret it very much, but duty compels me to do it. My most gracious czarina has bid me to deliver to you this order and also to carry it out personally and without delay. Knowing good manners, I do not wish to intrude into the sleeping apartment of a lady, and I have brought witht me lady attendants to help me In executing It. I must beg your kind indulgence to allow these ladies to enter." Prince Monomoff threw a troubled look-in the direction of the "lady attendants," who were lined up nicely in the hall. They were all six feet high, very well built "ladies." They were all richly, although a little negligently, dressed. They wore very large French hats with large feathers, and their faces were thickly veiled. On their large bands the fine suede gloves nearly bursted. But the most extraordinary thing was that instead of a fan every "lady" had a rod of birch in her hand. The chief of police delivered his order to the prince. It was a sweet little perfumed, rose colored billet doux containing these words: "One kiss—one word, then women^ hundred rods." Monomoff paled. The chief of police politely withdrew, and the "ladies" advanced In orderly steps. Two of them took the arms of Monomoff, and all entered Into the bedchamber and closed; the door. .What kind of a €^mony ;the£;:fte 9ne thing is. certain, .that when tl . emerged again from the sanctum of the princely pair their rods were used up to a great degree. The chief of police took polite leave of the prince, and the "ladies" arranged themselves in line again and filed away In a nice, soldierly manner.^ Before leaving the chief of police assured the prince that all those "ladies" were selected especially for one merit their knowledge how to- keep a secret But, in spite of bis assurance, the story soon became known all over the world.—Narrated From the Hungarian For New York Journal. ftbe Gbompsonville press.

The Parsons Printing Company, Thompsonville, Conn. Railroads. The Star of Bethlehem. It was a cloister fancy of the dark ages that the star of Bethlehem was some especially created starlike body, probably within our atmosphere, designed wholly for the leading of the wise men. The law of parsimony rejects such explication, and science, with silent scorn, turns its back upon the bauble star, for in the glorious depths of "heaven are matchless orbs which, swinging on their way into mortal ken for awhile, meet all the demands of poet and of prophet for the "Star of the King." History affords us data for determining this wondrous star. When the magi arrived in Jerusalem, Herod was within a few weeks of his death. The massacre of the babes of Bethlehem was one of the last of his tragic deeds. Herod died in the year of Rome 750. When "Herod Inquired diligently what time the star appeared," the reply was evidently such that he thought It safe to exterminate all baby sons of Bethlehem from 2 years old and under, showing that "the star" had been known to the wise men for at least two years before their arrival In Jerusalem, and whether Its appearing had marked the conception or the birth of "the king" Herod could not decide.—New LIppincott's. Flattering;. Not long ago two commercial travelers started from Birmingham on a night train to Holyhead. Wishing to have the compartment to themselves, however, they sat thinking for a moment how they would manage It At last one of them said that he would put it right and, stepping out on the footboard, told his companion to sit still and stare In front of him. As the people came to the carriage door to get In the traveler on the footboard whispered something to them, and the passengers, after taking a look Into the carriage, passed on. When all the passengers were seated, the train started, and the traveler stepped Into the carriage to join his companion, saying as he did so: < T "Done it haven't IV" His companion replied: * " 4 "Yes, 1 see you have, but how did you manage ItV" "Oh, 1 told them that you were a lunatic, and 1 had you In charge." ~ w§ism A Well Meant A*t.

"Yes," Mr. Thursby replied, "and I'm terribly worried. I didn't sleep a wink last night" "I think I heard you say something, too, about a note held oy Mr. Hewitt, didn't I?" "That's what is causing the trouble. If I could get him to extend the time on it for about 90 days, everything would come out all right. I could then realize on some securities I hold and get on my feet, but if he insists on payment now I shall have to sacrifice my valuable holdings, and this will practically ruin me." "Have you asked him for an extension of the time?" "No. That wouldn't do any good. He never favored anybody in his life. If he knew how I am fixed, he would be all the more anxious to press me \%r an immediate settlement." "Well, don't you worry, dear. His wife, you know, Is several years older than I. We met at a party this afternoon, and I spoke to a lot of women there of the days when she and I went to the same school. She turned pale when I mentioned the fact, fearing, of course, that I was going to tell how long ago it was, and that she was several grades above me because she was older, but I put down my pride and pretended that as I remembered her she was a little thing In pinafores just learning her primer lessons when I graduated.
