There was a vivid flash in the sun- Ehine as the sentry by the palace gate raised Ins saber iu salute to the rrin- cess Susette. Her highness had run away from her nurse and stood peeking out curiously into tlie great world beyond the gates. The children of the lodgeUeeper were making mud pies in the creek that skirted the palace grounds. The Prin­ cess Susette wished that she, too, might make mud pies. Tile flash from the sentry’s »aber caught her eye. The Princess Susette meditatively sucked one little pink thumb and surveyed him with round eyed wonder. He looked big and ter­ rible on his great gray troop horse. “Wliat makes you do that?” inquired Princess Susette plaintivelj-, for the long saber a t •‘present arms” was glim­ mering with little hot flashes of light. \Because you are a princess,” said the sentry briefly. A wave of discontent swept over the face of the Princess Susette. \I don’t w a n t to be a princess,” she wailed. “'Phey w o n ’t let you do uossin’ When you are a princess.” The sentry sat In frozen silence. The eye of the princess wandered back to the lodgekeeper’s children making mud pies by the creek. \I wish I could make mud pics,” said ner higliness wistfully. The Princess Susette came timidly out from the gateway and touched the sentry’s huzzar boot with a tiny dim­ pled hand. “Mr. Soldier,” she said softly, ‘T wish I could make mud pies.” “The orders are that nobody can pass the gate,” growled the sentry. The sweet lips of the Princess Su- Bueli a lonoiy little girl! I w ish I Iiaii some one to play wiz.” The heart of the Princess Susette igainst t the big war liorse and wept bitter tears on'the saber tacbe of the sentry. 'The boot of the sentry was streaked with royal tears, and the black from the sen­ try’s stirrup strap begrimed the face of the princess. Tlie sentry glared straight out to the front and center through a strange mist that dimn post oppoi The gray troop horse bent his head and softly nozzled the plump, heaving shoulders of the unhappy little Pi’in- cess Susette. The light of an .uspirntion came into the tear stained face of the princess. She sat down in the middle of the road and peeled ofl! her shoes and .stockings. The little barelegged maid In still white lawn presented a queer figure of a princess as her highness paddled hack to the sentry. \Mr. Soldier,” she began tentatively, Lit - - - liad just tires in the dust with one’s bare toe is the most fascinating amusement in Ibe world. She was recalled from her absorbing occupation by the distant rattle of pony hoofs. Her nurse was the sentry would not look, ‘iitry’s saber flashed again to “present arms.” \Can I go now?” asked the Princess Susette. \Nobody can pass,” said the sentry grufliy. The princess looked up at him slyly. “Mr. Soldier, nur.sy wouldn’t let mo go barefooted because she said only little nobodies went barefoot. I’m no- ’rincessi Susette held up her )ody now.” And the P through the shrubbery he caught a glimpse of a pony cart driven hard. On the other side he heard the splash of water and the happy shout of the lodgekoeper's children. The lips of titc lonely little princess were begin­ ning to quiver again when the sentrj'’s saber flashed a deflant gleam as it rose in salute. “Pass!” said the sentry shortly. The Princess Susette, barelegged, ran down the road and shyly made her glanced out of tl the right of liiii to the left of him the corner of his eye to Then lie called cautiously after the Princess Susette: “Build a dam across :. That’s more fun than mak- hing up the creek. Ing mud pies.” When the pony cart came dash in hot haste, with a groom and a ened nurse, the sentry, without a trace of expression in his face, was staring at the gatepost opposite. “■Where is the Princess Susette?” gasped the white faced nurse. The sentry sat in stern silence. It was against his orders to talk. “Wliere Is the Princess Susette?” de­ manded the nurse in sudden terror. The sentry stared on at the gatepost opposite, but beyond the gate canie a childish treble that the nurse knew. T h e ' Princess Susette Ti-as shrieking with delight over her first mud pie. The nurse grabbed the lines from the groom and urged the pony forward by jerking the lines backward after the manner of women. The sentry's horse moved majestically out from the gate­ post and blocked the way. “Get out of the way!” ordered the nurse furiously. “You cannot pass!” said the sentry “I want the Princess Susette!” cried the nurse wildly. Sho jerked the pony’s head and tried to turn by the sentry, but a great gauntlet caught the pony’s bridle and iield it in a vise. 'The pony, bewildered by the whip behind, began to plunge, 'ind the groom had to run to his head. jThe distracted nurse scrambled from lie cart and ran with flj’ing sldrts to­ ward the gate, but the ■ gray troi|p hotSe felt the dig of sharp spui'S amd plunged desperately out to head h<{i fiff. Erowded Into a corpgr by the p t ace gate, the iim-Se called to the gfUSm to drive on and get the Princess Su- his saddle holster. “Halt!” he thundered, and the order : the groom 11 ihoulder was pi.stol shot. The pistol looked big and black, and the gaunt soldier by the gate with his bearskin Uuzzar cap and the scarlet dolman terrible to look > groom slunk back, and the nurse wept in despair. It was the bciit time the Princess Susette ever had in her whole life. When she came back, the hair h.ed [•aggled down into her highness’ face id there was a smudge of blue black across the tip of her highness’ little snub nose. Her highness’ stock­ ings, wet as a dishrag, were slung and her highness’ neck in a lovely that the lodgokeeper’s i had shown her. The princess carried lown the teiniiestiious career as an ocean liner, plying across the creek and carrying pebbles. The princess sniffled with a cold iu her head, but the heart of the princess was glad. The nurse, on the verge of hysterics, waited on the other side of the sentry line, like a football player ready to tackle. But the Princess Susette turned back to the sentry. “Mr. Soldier,” she said. The sentry was staring fixedly a t the gatepost. “Jfr. Soldier,” she said, tugging at his boot, “ilr. Soldier, I fink I would like to kiss you.” The sentry looked down out of the corner of his eye at the sweet little flushed face. The sentry sheathed his drawn saber with a clang. The sentry reached down his two big gauntlets to the Princess Susette. » * » The nurse and the groom were horri­ fied a t the spectacle. RopresentatiTe \Wasliington. Discussing the differences between WasUington and other American cities in an article on “The Capital of Our Democracy” in The Century, Henry Loomis Nelson says: “If Wasiiingtoii is not like the typ­ ical American city, how, then, can it be tbe city of America, the c all others in the land where the it is not shaken with the sti'anger can most satisfactorily study ? If its pec with boiliu! national traits? If its people are not bubbling over with boiling energy; if national fever and ague, one day burning with the heat of a ‘boom’ and another day shak­ ing with the chill of a panic; if most of its men are not struggling for mon­ ey all day and rushing home to slip­ pers and rest at evening; if the wives and daughters of many of the more successful of those hunters for wealth vain seekers after social dis­ tinction; if the idle American nobility life*in Washington characteristically American? Because it is all America America not engaged iu making its liv­ ing or its fortune.” Payne's A'orse and the Rejoinder.

And over that seven miles he must walk with caution, with a wide Interval between him and his pals on eitlier hand. He must lie down a t every short halt and scratch the ground hurriedly with his little spade at every long one, for the great shelte are sailing toward him, and he sees by bis officer’s eye and hears by his commands that it is con­ sidered that he may perish at any mo­ ment and that precautions are neces­ sary to preserve him. He sees, more­ over, how futile those precautions must be if one of those monsters howling overhead should land as near to him as the last one did to that blasted tree, for Instance, with its scorched, dan­ gling limbs and the huge charred fis­ sure in its stout trunk, or as the one before did to the team of mules iu the ambulance ivagon, now a screaming, sti'uggling jumble of harness and bloody flesh.

No information which can be acquired is too trivial to he Ig­ nored. again if you did not acquire it from him. Daniel Webster once made a great hit in arguing a case before a jury by repeating a story which he afterward said he had not thought of since he heard it fourteen years before. But Webster was always picking up some­ thing for future use. His famous reply largely made up of little reserves which be had iiicked up here and there in his reading, from studying men and from observation. IMany a prominent novelist has col­ lected material for his stories by mak­ ing notes of his conversations with those lie has mot and by observation. Charles Dickens got a gi-eat deal of the matter for some of bis novels in this One young man will go to a lecture and after spending an hour listening to the helpful, inspiring words of some prominent man will leave the hall or lecture room without having derived any benefit from the address.

At the conclusion the address he will determine that he will make more of his opportunities In the future; that he will read more, tudy more, be more than lefore.

If you ever receive au invitation to a Japanese incense party, accept It promptly and thankfully. It has no counterpart in our own social system and is as merry and pleasant an affair as can be imagined. The people of the mikado’s laud have trained the nos­ trils for generations the same as we have trained the eye and ear, and they display a skill which at times is star­ tling to a westerner. There is an odd etiquette to be followed in these social affairs. For the twenty-four hours preceding the party each guest must avoid the use of anything which can produce any odor whatever. Scented soaps, perfumes, odorous foods and even spices must be avoided. These prevent the user from smelling accu­ rately and also interfere with the other members'of the party.

In the drawing room the hostess burns a series of incenses, usually four or five in number.
