MORGAN AND PREPAREDNESS.
When J. P. Morgan died he had to
leave behind him $8,639 worth of
cigars, $44,743 worth of booze and
$174,450 worth of watches. hese
figures, revealgorby the appraisal of
his estate, will give the ordinary man
a better idea of how rich Morgan
was than the statement that his total
estate was valued at $78,149,024.
If Morgan could have taken all his

nervous prostration by the time the
car reached the loop.
Appealing to her and to scores
like her to let a man read his morn
ing war news in peace is perfectly
useless. So we are only going to tell
her that it is good form to finish
dressing in her own room, and that
fussing with one's clothes in 'public
is not good manners. Moreover it
detracts from her youthfulness.
And makes her look as if her
pumps hurt her.
