unable to prevent himself from be

cinating young woman, who, not
catching' his name, constantly add
ressed him as Mr. Petess, much to
the gentlemen's distress. Finally,
summoning up the courage, he earn
estly remonstrated: "Oh, don't call

Milk bottles don't last half as long
as they used to. A Philadelphia milk
dealer has been making exhaustive
researches into the life of a milk
bottle, and he has descovered that
five years ago a milk bottle made
thirty trips before being smashed,
whereas the milk bottle of today suc
cumbs to decay after fifteen trips.
In other words the world Is nearly
twice as rough as It was five years
ago. Milkmen slam down the bot
tles more roughly. Housekkeepers
bang them about with Increased vio
lence. In some circles, people have
I shown an increasing tendency to
pick up milk bottles and throw them
recklessly at each other in the heat
of an argument, instead of settling
the argument by clear logic and cold
reason. The startling growth in In
dividual roughness has been match
ed by a like increase in national
roughness. Where Individuals wreck
more milk bottles than ever before,
nations squirt poison gas at each
other and drop bombs on defense
less towns. Ah, for a return of
those gentle, happy days when each
milk bottle was good for thirty trips.
May the pendulum swing back so far
that thirty-five trips will be the aver
age of every milk bottle.

She was as dear as dear could be,
