dependently rich. It showed him
hovering about the city where his
still beloved wife was living, idolizing
her at a distance, never daring to ap
proach her. And Myra Edison read
the oracle true.- .To all this trouble
and expense RolfeEdison had gone
to convey to her that he was still lov
ing and was a man with a new heart.
The barriers were sundered for the
first time in years. When she reach
ed home Myra Edison broke down.
Helen was at her side. The longing
Myra threw herself into the arms of
this sweet consoler.
"Oh, Mrs. Edison," cried Helen,
"other arms are waiting to take and
hold you and atone for all the
wretched past. Can I tell your hus
band to come to you?" and Helen
confessed all of her share in the plot

WHEN LITTLE BOYS DRESS UP
By Betty Brown
The Norfolk, box pleated and belt
ed coat, is "sonny boy's" favorite, and
the Norfolk was never more popular
than this spring. The trousers are
straight, rather wide at the knee In
the newest Norfolks. Serge, worsted
and cheviot make up very well in
these little coat suits and there are
very pretty patterns in stripped gala
tea, colored pique and checked ging
hams suitable for warm weather.
The late spring hat of the very
small boy will be quite fussy. A
broad sash that dangles over his
shoulder will be the usual trimming,
but narrow bands ending in long
streamers will also be used.
For the boy who hasn't reached
the dignity of trousers, a straight
lined box-pleated dress, buttoned
Russian blouse fashion, is very pretty
and not too girlified. Separate
"knickers" are worn with it of course.
Chambray, which launders so well, or
Jinen crash or cotton gabardine make
up prettily in this Russian blouse

No. 5 The Rocking Chair Goat '
My! What a queer looking flower.
It isn't a flower. It's the rocking
chair goat When he gets tired walk
ing or waiting for a street car, he
just starts rolling. The bone or horn,
part doesn't start just above his
ears; it starts from the whiskers on,
his chin up, all solid bone. That's
why he's called a goat
The rocking chair goat will eat
anything but tripe that gets his
.goat Can you blame him?
The rocking chair goat finds his
horns more practical as a private fliv
ver than they would be if made into
a nice pair of horn-rimmed glasses.
There are many kinds of goats be
sides this one. They can be found
in offices, banks, city halls or in the
police department mostly behind
the bars. But by far the greatest
number can be found in congress.
Women are employed as tramcar
conductors in Bradford, Eng. Wages
and hours are the same as for men.

reported there are already 250 wom
