I don't see how you stand it or why you stand it. If I didn't have to be down town all day I'd have the children out in the park or in the country such a clay as this. I certainly wouldn't stay in an oven of a house when there are trees and grass and breezes to be found if you only go in search of them." "But there surely is more comfort in remaining quietly here than there Is In preparing for an outing and then tramping all over the country looking for a bit of unappropriated shade," protested Mrs. Briggs. "Nonsense," replied Briggs. "Of course there is some work in getting ready, but the luxuries of this life are not to be had without labor. I tell you the country is the place, and we'll go to the country today. Just hustle around and get the children ready and we'll start." "But where'll we go?" ksked Mrs. Briggs. "Anywhere," answered Briggs. "The park?" suggested Mrs. Briggs. "That's comparatively near, and"— "Park nothing!" interrupted Briggs. '"We can run over to the park any afternoon when 1 happen to get home early, but I don't get a full holiday very often, and we want to take advantage of it. We'll get out where the cool breezes blow. Hurry now. We can get a train to Mulligan's grove at 10 o'clock, and some of the boys at the store are going out there with their families—nothing formal, you know; just Q.n outing. I'll show you how to keep cool if you'll just hustle and put up a little lunch." There was an hour or more of good hard work, as any one who ever has tried to start for a little outing knows, and some of the work fell to the lot of Briggs himself. He acted under the orders of Mrs. Briggs, who became general superintendent temporarily, and as a result when they were ready to start he had to change his collar i and his negligee shirt. . . ^ "Whew!",.he ®elitimedr. as'he put hammQj^;g>;ff|i» *houldefc, corpse before night if I'd tried to 9M®| In this stuffy house." "You wouldn't have been as hot at. any time during the day as you are now," returned Mrs. Briggs, who was, going on the outing under protest and didn't care who knew it "Perhaps not," replied Briggs, "but I wouldn't have been as cool and comfortable as I will be an hour from now, either. The trouble with you women is that you don't look far enough ahead. There comes our car," he added a few minutes later. "Hurry, or we'll miss it." Briggs grabbed one of the children with his disengaged hand, and with the lunch basket in the other hand and the hammock over his shoulder started on a dog trot to head off the approaching car at the corner. "Whew, it gets hotter every minute!" he exclaimed as he hung to a post and mopped his face with his handkerchief. "I tell you, we would just have smothered in that house today. Why, my clean collar is melted already." He looked around for a seat, but a whole lot of people seemed to be taking an outing that day and there wasn't one to be had. Mrs. Briggs and the children were uncomfortably wedged in between hot and perspiring individuals and looked as If they thought he had rather the better of it standing up. "I just about sweat myself to death in the crowd on the footboard," said Briggs when they were on the street again and about to take up the rest of their journey to the depot. "How far have we got to walk now?" asked Mrs. Briggs. "Only four blocks," answered Briggs. "Then we may hope to be decently comfortable. Come along! We've no time to waste." Ten minutes later they were on a car with others going for an outing— a good many others. They had sweltered at the ticket office, sweltered in the crowd at the gate, and had been pushed and jostled and stepped on in reaching the car, but they all got seats —after a fashion. It is warm under a train shed in the best of circumstances. There Is little circulation of air there, and when it comes to sitting next to a fat man or woman and holding a child in one's lap, a very fair imitation of the tortures of the infernal regions la experienced. "This negligee shirt or mine," said Briggs, "looks as if I had. worn it In swimming, but we'll have some com^ fort as soon as we get under way." "If v?e don't start soon," returned Mrs. Briggs. "I shall faint I simply cannot stgnd this stifling atmosphere." And one of the children began to cry# They left the train with a sigh of relief. Before it started even the aisle® had partly filled up, and everyone knows what- enforced contact with sweltered humanity is in a closed caij. "At any rate, we're here," said1 Briggs as he threw away his limj> Collar and loosened the neckband of h!ji shirt.

"Well, you'll have to 'do the running," returned Mrs. Briggs with .decision, "I don't intend to kill myself. I'll look after the children and you take the hammock and the lunch basket and go on ahead." So Briggs ran a quarter of a mile, carrying weight for age, and succeeded in pre-empting a spot where two scrawny trees somewhat filtered the sun's rays, and even then he came near having to defend his location with physical force. "Now, I'll go hunt up some of the boys I know," he said, when Mrs! Briggs and the children arrived. "You'll do nothing of the sort," replied Mrs. Briggs promptly. "You'll put up the hammock first." Jp So he put up the hammockf not without some difficulty, for Dame Nature hadn't placed the trees as conveniently as she might have done. "•Now," he said, "I'll"— "Now, you'll take this little tin pall and get some water," put in Mrs. Briggs. "We're all nearly dying of thirst." "Now," said Briggs when he had brought the water, "I'll"— "Now you'll help me put out the lunch," interrupted Mrs. Briggs. "It's nearly 1 o'clock, and the children are almost starved." So he helped arrange the lunch and drove the ants away from it, and of course they found some things were lacking. Then he helped gather the remnants and the dishes together and put them back in the baskets, and after that he took the children over and bought them some pink lemonade and peanuts at a stand at the other end of the grounds, and gave them each a turn in the swing they found, and then finally he settled himself in the hammock. "Now, this is what I call comfort," he said, as he slapped at the flies and the mosquitoes. "I'll rest here a little while and then I'll hunt up some of the boys I know. I didn't tell them I was coming, so they"— "You'll rest there a little wJiile," interrupted Mrs. Briggs in her-annoying way, "and then you'll take the hammock down and start for the train. It leaves in three-quarters of an hour." * * • * * * * Briggs drew an armchair up in front of an open window and dropped wearily into it when he reached home. *"By George! but this is comfort," he said. 'There's a right cool breeze blowing through here." "Yes," returned Mrs. Briggs dryly. "Its comparatively comfortable between those two windows most of the time if one only keeps still long ;enough to notice it."—Chicago Evening ">>St : - ^ J;— id lier brother ever re^ived rin Jinan history. /Among our most loved and honored guests, during our childhood, was Dr. Samuel Cox, for many years a prominent clergyman in New York. At times our conversation turned on history, and I remember, on one occasion, he asked Edward and me if we could give him the names of the first Roman triumvirate. At this period of our existence the name "Csesar" was associated exclusively with an old colored man, whom we often visited and who lived upon a lonely road in the neighborhood. We were vastly astonished, therefore, to learn that the name had ever been borne by a more illustrious person than our dusky friend, but we listened entranced to the story of the rivalries of Cffisar and Pompey for the empire of the world. Unhappily the good doctor could not remember the name of the third triumvir, and the lack troubled him greatly. That night, about 2 o'clock, I was startled by a loud knock on my bedroom door, and Dr. Cox called out: "Mary, are you awake?" I replied that I was—as Indeed was every one else In the house by that time. "It's Crassus," said the doctor, and, then he returned to his room greatly relieved. Neither Edward nor I ever forgot that first lesson in Roman history.— Youth's Companion. Army Officers In Italy. In Italy the officers, at least are immaculate and picturesque. The common soldiers are, perhaps, not so impressive. They are short stocky little fellows, bow legged to a man, and in any clothes would not present a very martial appearance. But the officers are big, fine looking men, and their uniforms rival the women's hats in brilliancy. The cSTors used are very unmllitary, pale blue and sil'vei, gray with green stripes, yellow and scarlet and gold. The Bersaglieri or sharpshooters, with hats over one ear and a huge bunch of cock feathers flying out in the wind, are as striking as any, though the King's guard, with brass helmets and horse tail plumes, are by no means insignificant—Harper's Bazar. Aif.-ril"1 Gingerbread, sold in Paris as early as the fourteenth century, was made of rye meal, honey, ginger and spices; But the gingerbread of old New England that forms so prominent a part of the staple diet has undergone many an evolution since that time. A recipe given by an old housekeeper is as follows: Mix together one cupful of molasses, three-quarters of a cupful of fnflv and three cupfuls of flour. Add to this half a cupful of melted butter, one tablespoonf ul of ginger, half a teat stioonful of salt and one teaspoonful of soda dissolved in a quarter of a cupful of milk, Bake it in shallow pans about halfanhdur. A Unique Introduction. One day when calling upon Gambet-ta I found him vastly amused over a visit which he had received a few minutes previously from the late General Meredith Read, who for a number of years was United States envoy at Athens. Then general, who until that time had been a perfect stranger to the gyeat French statesman, had entered the latter's presence, carrying in his hand a volume entitled "Men ef the Time," or some work of the kind. This he opened, without saying a word, and laid on Gambetta's desk before attempting to greet him or to explain the purpose of his call. Then, pointing to a column which contained a very eulogistic biographical notice of himself, he exclaimed, "Kindly read that," and when Gam-betta, who read English with the utmost facility, had, in compliance with the request, cast his eye over the page in question, General Read rose from his chair, and with a bow to Gambetta pointed to himself, exclaiming in tones of pardonable pride, "C'est moi." Then, and not until then, did he extend his hand to the* great tribune, who, having meanwhile risen from his chair, expressed his pleasure at making the acquaintance of so distinguished an officer, who had rendered such valuable services to the United States. Gambetta informed me that in the whole of his long experience of public life he had never known a man to introduce himself In so delightfully original a manner.—Critic.

Mid "Ze Plaveur Del'cat." At one of his famous little dinners a prominent professional man of Washington was greatly pleased with the salad, as were also his guests. Evidently it was partly meat and partly vegetable, but the flavor was new, distinct and undeterminable. This was so faint that one guest declared "It's not a taste at all, only a smell." At length some one suggested that the chef be asked for the recipe, upon which the host remarked: "My man greatly dislikes being asked ior recipes. On this occasion, however, his vanity may overcome him if we tell how greatly we have enjoyed the dinner, and the salad in particular. At any rate, we'll see." The Frenchman soon appeared, a«d was visibly affected, not to say elated, by the compliments. "Eet gif me gret plaisir," he said, "to tell how I mak ze sal-lad. Eet ver* seemple.

The beginnings of a new primer have been made by one of our exchanges. The questions may be indefinitely continued by teacher and pupil. "See the corn in the field. Can the corn walk?" "No, the corn stalks." "See the pretty cake. Does the cake stalk?" Never. But you should see a cake walk." •"I have a rope* Can the rope walk?" "Yes, if it is taut" "The hen is in the garden. Does the hen rise?" "No, the hen sets." "The mercury is in the tube. Will the mercury set?" "No, my child. Wait until July and see." A Variation. The two old friends, as has been narrated before, met again after many years of separation. By the way, Brown," said Jones, "do you remember that snubnosed cross eyed little Tilbury girl with a face on her that would derail an express train? She used to live somewhere in your neighborhood, I think." Oh, yes, I remember her perfectly," replied Brown. "Whatever became of her?" "I am sorry to disappoint you, Jones"—here is where the variation comes in—"but I have not the slightest idea. I didn't marry her."—London King. — 1 • ' "BS" ' Away From Home. It breaks parents to have their boys leave home, but it is the best thing that can ever happen to them. A man gets a training when away from home that he needs in after life, and which he can never receive at home. It is a grandmotherly notion that a man Should be tucked in hte bed at home every night until the day. he marries and goes to a home of his own; such hothouse treatment puts him In poor condition for the cold blasts he Is bound to encounter later in life.—Atchison Globe. - She ^bompsonville press.
