THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAV, AUGUST 25, 1914
THE "PUROLA BRAND"
In this day and age, in our home for our
family, we want the Besl; and when we
say the Best we mean the Highest Quali
ty. The "Purola" Brand of Household
Remedies and Toilet specialties, which we
have juit put in, is another line in the chain
that binds us to our customers. Why? Be
cause "Purola" is synonymous with the
Highest Type of Purity and Quality and
bears the guarantee of an old-established
firm of more than thirty years experience.

Haclielor Girl severely.
"I thought that there were no grades of society or classes in this
country," expostulated the Bachelor.

try, it is one s hreedtug that, after all, places one: or so it seems to
me. A few may get into certain circles l v means of money or birth;
but if thev don't fit there, they find no red companionship And so to
get the society thev really enjoy, they finally drift to those whose out
look on life and manner of living are the same as their own. And thus
we really do have classes or grades of society. They are not arbitrarily
fixed, as in some countries: but they are none the less definite. And I
do not think these grade3 mix. In fact, they are not apt to mix so satis
factorily, as where the barriers are arbitrarily settled; tor in the latter
case there may be no real difference Bat where the class one settles

"I suppose that is true," reflected the Bachelor. "I would not
want to marry our cook, for instance, not because she is a cook, for
a cook is a rare and precious possession. But after the dinner was dis
cussed, we probably would have no other topic of conversation."
"That's exactly what I mean. Of course, between you and the
cook the gulf is easy to see. But sometimes, it is not quite so plain.
Often the little points of difference in the manner of living will not
crop up until after marriage. But they will crop up then, and they'll
cause many a heart-ache, if nothing worse."
"What is worse than a hearl-ache5"' mused the Bachelor.
"You know what I mean," replied the Bachelor Girl. "These
points of difference mav cause quarrels; or if one or the other is too
well-bred to quarrel, there'll be continual thorns that will prick and
prick, and hurt and hurt, till there won't be much happiness left for
them. When a person of refinement and fastidious tastes has to live,
day in and out, with one who has not been brought up to know all
the little niceties of living, there are going to be rough places for him
or her. People mav be mentally congenial; but there needs to be
similarity of tastes on some of the lower planes of living for them to
get along happily together. If a person has an awfully nice disposition
he may mend his ways in these small matters. But not many of us like
to be told to clean our finger-nails, or not to pick our teeth, nor leave
hair in the comb, or a lot of other such personal details. And it is not
ut all pleasant to have to put up with such things. And vet when
people come from different grades of society they are apt to regard
such things very differently."
"My disposition is very angelic," observed the Bachelor. "And I
am willing to put into practice any suggestions vou may wish to
