HERSECRET
i hey were two bosom friends, but although they
were women, one of them had never confided her age to
the other.
"Yes," she was saying; "I've kept the secret of my
age ever since I was twenty." ,
"Really!" said her 7 'end. "Never told anvone?"
"Never!"
"Never?"
"Never, never, never!" - s
"Never given the faintest hint?"
"Not the slightest!"
"I expect you will some time. You're bound xto
let the cat out of the bag when you least ex
pect it."
"Not likely ! After I have kept a secret for ten
years I'm not likely to give it "away !"
OFF HIS GUARD
The young undergraduate was hauled before his
tutor. He had exceeded his leave by no less than two
days.
"Well," said the professor, "what have you to say
for yourself?"
"I'm awfully sorry," replied the undergrad. "I
really couldn't get back before. I was detained, by most
important business."
The professor looked at him sternly.
"So you wanted two more days of grace, did you?"
he asked.
"No, sir," answered the young man, off his guard for
the moment "of Marjorie!"
TRICKS OF THE TRADE
Binks and Jinks were strolling down a shady ave
nue of their select suburb. Time, about 3:30 in the
afternoon.
"Great Scott!" exclaimed the latter. "Has Bilks
gone clean off his napper?"
"Why?" asked his friend,
"Well, just look at his house. He's got every gas
jet in the house burning!"
"Oh," laughed Jinks, "that's all right! He's
just increasing his gas bill. The fact of the matter
is that he wrote to his -wife that he'd been at home
reading every 'night since she went to Brighton.
