nthuslasm but he looks pale and al

fclm you cnn see that and sou feel
father sorry for him He seems to be
Buffering from n bad nttack of act
Ing with complications In the form of
MIss Helen Robertson as the lady who
wants him to enjoy life on the Euro

conducts herself accordingly
Berenice does everything but pray
for Raphael and her mother plays the
organ Hut even the organ accom

An AnteSeasonal Hint No woman
can look pretty or engaging while root
Ing violently at a ball game
When Tennyson It was Tennyson
said that A womans crowning glory
Is her hair rats Instead of being
used is crowns were still pursuing their
activities under ground
Queer tsnt it that just as soon nv
you stake yourscll to a safety razor
your iclfe cuts out her habit oj chirp

A man must Just naturally hate peace
when whether It be truo or not ho ac
cuses his wlfo of having IIU feet
There are more limn u hundred minor
physical reasons why n man may bo
rejected for a Ilfo Insurance policy
When he tells his wlfo about his re
p
jection though nothing In the world
will convince her that ho Isnt going to
die somo tlmu next neck
If dlgostlNo power were the test
women would gain the vote without a
I struggle Ever seo her cat about a
pound of mixed chocolates half an hour
before dinner and then attack the dinner
as If she hadnt had a meal since last
Tuesday week
Ceitainly she thinks she means It
at the time when after youve old
her something in strict confidence
she solemnly promises never to re
peat it to a living soul
So great Is her power of selfcontrol
that she Is abla to poBtpone having that
good cry from the forenoon when she
beglni to calculate upon It till you get
home hungry and tired In the evening
