THOSE COMPELLING SHOES
By Charles B. Driscoll
The tall and shining yellow shoes
that all the girls are wearing are
giving me a case of blues that many
men are sharing. "With interest, I
must confess, I've watched those tall
shoes growing, while shorter grows
milady's dress, to make a better
showing. But every day I meet a
maid who's added on more leather,
and every, day I am afraid there may
come windy weather.
Perchance a hurricane may blow
with suddenness surprising; then
where shall we poor fellows go while
wind and things are rising? If we
should be upon the street, pray, la
dies, have compassion! Don't think
us rude nor indiscreet; we didn't
make the fashion! And we can't
jcrane our neck to look at birds that
are -not flying, nor can we always
read a book while motor cars are
shying. So look not on us as a race
of brutes devoid of feeling. To glance
at beauty's no disgrace and looking
isn't stealing!

BACON AND EGGS
Margaret is a three-year-old whose
' parents are fond of bacon and eggs
and Margaret has her share. One
day in the country she heard, for the
first time, a hen cackle.
"Oh, mother," she exclaimed,
"what does the hen say?"
"Well," her mother smiled, "I sup
pose she says she has laid -an egg."
Margaret did not understand the
smile and after a moment's profound
thought she came back again. "And
, -what does she say, mother," she in-
. quired more seriously than before,
; "what does she say when she lays
bacon?" Judge.
