You know I never could do so if it
were me. I am not at all egotistical.
Up to this time I had thought little
Mrs. Brown cnly gossipy I know
now she is malicious.
"We have another neighbor on our
floor, Mrs. Dickson. They do say she
does not get along well with her hus
band. Of course, I would not have
you mention it, but I have heard them
quarreling. I think he drinks, poor
man. You can see from the way she
dresses she ' thinks of nothing 'but
"Is Mrs. Dickson that stunning
- looking blond I see in the elevator?"
"Do you think she is stunning? I
never did like those big women my
self!" and little Mrs. Brown fairly
preened herself because of her five
feet two. .
. Just then the telephone bell rang.
It was Mollie.
"Are you all ready, Madge?" '.
: "Yes, dear, I'll be right down," as
I thought perhaps my caller would
take the hint.
. "Your husband has asked you
downtown to take lunch with him?"
was her confident remark as I left the
'phone, "and I'll run right along, for,
my dear, you must always accept all
your husband's invitations now, for
the longer you are married the
farther apart you will receive them."
Nice, pleasant woman, Mrs. Brown!

went up, "A man overboard!" and
the captain gave orders to a new
sailor, who was an Irishman, to
throw out two buoys.
The sailor, seeing two boys walk
ing on the deck, threw them over
board. The captain, in a state of excite
ment, declared that it was cork
buoys he wanted thrown overboard.
"Bedad!" said Pat, "how was Oi
to- know whether they came from
Cork or Tipperary?"
