the morning, all day long I can think
of nothing else than your trouble.
You brave girl! I know that if I were
in your condition I would 'curse God
and die.' "
"And yet, Dick, you look with hor

trying to get out of it" '-
"Yes, I know, I know," he said
somewhat brokenly, and I made up
my mind then and there that I would
not let Dick see me often. So I have
tried to be asleep when he has come
to my door in the morning as well
as at night
Each day before he goes to lunch
he telephones me and I always try
to be as gay as possible. Over the
wire he gets only an idea of joy from
We women are only mother after
all. For the man we love as well as

PASSING THE BUCK
By Charles B. Driscoll
When Adam was indicted once, he
passed the buck to Eve. She passed
the buck to Satan, and he took it, I
believe. Which shows that Satan is
a sport, to give the boy his due. This
ought to be recorded in the great
"Whoso is Who."
It was a sad day for mankind when
Adam passed the buck. He passed it
to posterity, with other rotten luck.
And Adam held a public job, I gather
from my notes, for all great passers
of the buck are always seeking votes.
A courthouse falls upon your head,
a sidewalk hits your nose; you hasten
to the corner cop and quickly tell
"Who loosened up the sidewalk,
and who made the courthouse drop?"
The buck starts on its journey from
the simple corner cop. You hire a
corps of lawyers, and you fight till
you are gray. The city fathers pass
jthe buck along from day to. day.
When any man in puDhc life ac
cepts his share of blame, please grab
him and embalm him for the Heroes' c
Hall of Fame!
