PALACE RESTAURANT RENO NEV TN PALACE HOTEL J GODFREY Proprietor MEALS AT ALL HOURS DAY OR NIGHT OYSTERS IN EVERY STYLE public can rest assured that the Palace Restaurant will be maintained in a first-class manner The Best and Host Satisfactory Job Work at the office MR MEN IN SHARP CONTRAST The Model M Fainted by Artist and M Seen In Real background of misty fray shadows soft and dreamy a woman floating through tbe shadows with white armb raised high above her head clothed only in thin gray draperies trailing and lading into the clouds in which she floated Every curve of the gleaming white limbs line of the slender body was revealed by the clinging transparent folds which only heightened the loveliness they could not conceal and fell away softly from the full white throat and snowy breast The face was uplifted and turned slightly away in an exquisite pose but something in the chaste lines of the beautiful figure revealed all the purity sacredness and ideality of womanhood Men says the New York Sun looked at the picture with earnest faces women's chatter hushed as they approached it It almost makes me cry it is so pure and said a pretty impulsive girl I could be always good if it hung m my room The artist stood in the angle of the railing as the people crowded up to see his work and some one Is it an ideal to which he I painted it from life except the face which is idealized a little High up in an old with dark passages and up tumble-down stairs a tiny room a woman sat crouching over a smoking fire endeavoring to coax its coals into life and warmth Her dress was old and faded and soiled a tear on the shoulder revealing the white flesh her shoes were ragged and down at the heel fastened by one or two buttons her hands were smirched with coal dust A frowsy boy came banging into the room with a bun in one hand and a greasy newspaper ia the other Here's the paper the boss sent up to your man and is he any better he says He is answered the woman apathetically as she took up the paper and went into another tiny room where on a ragged couch a man with consumption was watching her with burning eyes She turned to the art notes and after a little search The picture has sold for and I only had 120 for the pose and it was so hard and made my ache so I couldn't fix em in the night so I could go to sleep The nearly out and the rent isn't paid and your medicine is all gone What was tho pose This She raised slowly on one toe and threw her hands above her head The clinging limp faded dress outlined curves of gracious beauty the soiled sleeves fell back from dimpled while arms the hands save where tho coal smirches ened them were white as snow and they were faultless in shape Through the rent in her dress tbe bare shoulder gleamed like marble and the collar slipped back from a full beautiful throat the gray dusk of the twilight shrouded her with dreamy shadows and the uplifted face was turned A FEMALE LOBBYIST How She Manures to Gather Honey from Every Flower A fine figure of a as Joo gery observes in Great passes by into the Capitol sweeping of silk and genuine seal fur with as broad spread of canvas as tho yachts Puritan or Her age ranges ably between forty and forty-five her ure is practically embonpoint but her face is rosy with health and her features still preserve the stamp of beauty Her eyes are big and gray scintillating under the flashes of dark eyelashes and brows and were her attire lass pronounced she would be styled elegant This lady enters the re- ception and sends her card to several memoers wno at once and soon she is surrounded by B coterie of conscript fathers vicing with each other in playing the gallant She jests and jokes with them all inviting them to call at her residence and having played her cards adroitly leaves the Capitol in a well-appointed coupe with the driver in livery Sometimes she is accompanied by her daughter a pretty girl of eighteen and a splendid type of the blonde This lady is a professional lobbyist and plies her vocation with marked success Whispers in the air are heard occasionally in criticism of her private character trom those of her own sex but says the gallant correspondent of the Kansas City Times neither man nor woman has ever brought forward an accusation direct and positive so far as it is generally known She has had her fingers however in many a Con- gressional pie whereof she received a slice of greater or lesser proportions and no one is more thoroughly posted in the avenues and channels of legislation She obtains a copyof every introduced and of ports thereon and if tho game be worth the candle history and parentage Then when the case is thoroughly digested she offers to make or mar as the case may be wherever the best financial opportunity is presented and her efforts ace usually at- tended with success She is shrewd and gathers from every honey-bearing flower The Wastes of Cooking America wastes enough yearly to feed the thousands who are now said to be out of employment The time may yet come when it shall be considered practical where in the course of the education which a State gives to the people to teach girls how to extract the greatest amount of ment from the common material of food and a careful statistician justly remarks that can teach the masses of the people how to get five cents worth a day more comfort or force out of the food which each one consumes will add to their power what would be equal to one thousand million dollars a year in MRS BAKER'S ARREST How a Got Rid of Burglar At- tired In Feminine AppareL Iliad just been the account of a bold daylight burglary that had occurred that day only a block or so from my writes C M well in the Woman's Journal The thief was a notorious one and his ingenious manner of operation and the details of his capture occupied a prominent place in the evening papers As I finished my landlady entered the parlor and I This affair was un- pleasantly near us wasn't it Mrs she replied it reminds me of an adventure I had with a burglar though I got rid of mine mere easily I suppose s he saw by my face that I wanted to hear about it for

CHEMICAL Office and Mission Street FRANCISCO CAL nice medium size dressed quite elegantly in black and with a pleasant face and dark brown hair which she wore in curls She was apparently about thirty Sue asked if I was Mrs Emery and I said I was She said she had come in that afternoon from Reading to attend the Temperance convention going on in and as she was not acquainted in the city she had asked one of the ladies to tell her of a good near the hall where she could stay over Sunday and she had been directed here She also mentioned that a lady connected with the Mission had asked her to deliver an address there in the morning This sounded all right nnd I told Mrs Baker as she called herself my terms for the room which she said were satisfactory and then she said she would first go to the evening session of the convention and come back and take it So she started out but came back in about ten minutes saying that she found herself too tired to walk to the hall and that she go right to bed I took her up to the same one you have now Miss then I came down and thought it over It was queer I thought and I felt a little uneasy but a bright idea struck me One of the ladies connected with the lived right in the next block and I was slightly acquainted with her I knew nothing concerning the without her knowledge so telling Joe to be on the watch a little I went around and inquired about Mrs Baker Miss Greene knew nothing about any such person and was sure the school had had nothing to do vith fact they had a from German town to address tnp school This didn't make me feel any morn comfortable I next thought 1 would interview Mrs Baker again nnd gpt a little more definite information about her So I went up and knocked but got no answer tried the door and found it locked You know my room is just behind that one and communicates with it by a door in the end of the closet papered over and hooked on my side I next opened that door and entered her room as her closet door was wide open The gas was turned low and Mrs Baker in bed evidently asleep I walked toward the bed and as I passed the bureau noticed a big bunch of brown curls on it and her black dress near by on a chair As I wont on rather amused at the quantity of false hair I stumbled against something which on investigation proved to be pair of masculine trousers suspenders and all I was rather startled and looked at the bed Only Mrs Baker's head and one arm were visible but the hair on that head was a light auburn and cut very short and the sleeve on that arm was of dark gray and buttoned at the wrist This was remarkable to say the least and I went again without waking her and after holding a little council of war with sensible little chap if I do say sent him for a pol iceman The station isn't far so Joe was back in a few minutes After hearing his story they sent a skillful detective and 1 took him up to the room We both went in and I walked over and turned up the gas and said Mrs Baker 1 pretty loud The person in bed waked up looked confused a moment then Oh is that you Mrs in what sounded like an assumed falsetto to my suspicious ears But just then the officer came in sight and Mrs Baker's voice dropped suddenly to an exalted bass and made some remarks that were like to say the least while the owner made a quick motion toward the little valise on a chair by the bed But the detective was quicker and snatched it first I retired then and as I went out heard the officer Now Ifr Jim Warren I shall have to trouble you to dress yourself and come with me I went down and told Joe who was on toe stairs wild with excitement how the thing had turned out and in about five minutes the officer and his prisoner went out at the front door After landing him securely In the tion the detective came back after the lise which he had forgotten He said that he had recognized the man as soon as he saw him and that he was well known to the police who had been looking for him for several months The contained a revolver a small dark lantern some skeleton keys and a few other small articles which I don't re- member J don't know how the fellow happened to caught napping so nicely but he felt so safe that he was off his guard Perhaps he didn't mean any chief and only wanted a little needed rest but I'm very glad I got rid of him as I did Department and instead of being dered home as
