colildn't write for the 'Lev-v-via-than.'
A light burst in on Littlefield's an
"Good heavens!" he muttered.
"But why did youwant to write
"Because I knew you thought me
ignorant and foolish," murmured
Clarice, "and I knew I wasn't a fit
f wife for you, and I wanted to sh-show

a l-l-lite'rary persons."
"Dearest," murmured her fiance,
drawing her upon his knee, "if you
knew how I detest literary persons!
That's my business, Clarice, not my
life. I loved you just for yourself.
I should hate to have you writing
stdries. And now I've got to catch
the night train back. Our engage
ment's still flourishing, isn't it?"
And Clarice's happy smile and kiss
answered his question.
That was how the cook-book
came to be restored to the post of
honor upon the bookshelf again.
By Berton Braley.
However fine his words, how kind
The praises that he chatters,
He always has an axe to grind
The smiling chap who flatters
And wise men know how insecure
Are all the words he's saying,
For, though they're pleasant words
They mask the game he's playing.
A kindly word of honest praise
Will help and never harm you,
But flattery is meant to daze,
To blind you and disarm you;
It makes you strut with silly pride,
It dulls your brain in action,
And causes you to 'glow inside
With warm self-satisfaction.
Of course, we wise men all agree
To hold ourselves above it;
We know tne harm in flattery
And- golly, how we love it!
