MR. AND MRS. BOWSER.
Mr. Bowser** Little LflMon and How Ha
"Mrs. Bowser," began Mr. Bowser, as h«
came down stairs the other morning, "if
this house run on a system or is everything
expected to take care of itself?"
"What do you mean?" she asked.
"I mean that I have been looking for a
shoestring for the last hour and a half, and
that nothing of the sort is to be found!"
"No; I don't believe there is one in th?
"I presume not! I presume the two hun
dred pairs I bought in Detroit the day be
fore we left have all been chewed up l>y
the cat or sold to the racmnn. If there's
a worse run house than our* in America
I'd like to see itl"
"Why, Mr. Bowser, you only brought
home three shoestrings, aud you used two
ot those to tie up your papers!''
"Well, where's the other?"
"I can't tell. We may have lost it in
moving and unpacking."
"Don't doubt it in the least. While a shoe
string is not as big as a piano or as valua
ble as a clock, the loss of it shows a want
of system, a reckless extravagance truly
discouraging. Have you got a piece of
clothes line in the house?"
"I —I don't think so," she stammered.
"Probably not! Probably gone to join
the shoestring! I must have something
to tie up my shoe with, however, and I
will use a piece of stovepipe wire."
After breakfast, when ready to go out, he
"Mrs. Bowser, I hope you will take this
lesson to heart. Carelessness in a wife is a
very reprehensible trait."
"You are just as careless as X ami" she
"No, ma'am! No, ma'am. I never mis
lay anything, forget anything or lose any
thing! Very few husbands do. I will go
around the world with a pin in my vest
and bring the same one back with me. If
you go out on the street today you hud bet
ter have a policeman go with you. If not
you'll lose your purse or be robbed of your
When Mr. Bowser came up to luncheon
he entered the house with a smile on his
face and the doormat in his hand, and
"I found a boy walking off with this
matl Has any one taken the range out of
the basement? It's a wonder to me they
haven't come in after the carpets!"
"That's a mat the girl put out in the bar
rel to be carted away," she explained.
"Oh! It isl More reckless extravagance,
I see! Mrs. Bowser, I want to sit down
with you some day and have a long talk.
I think you mean well, but you are defi
cient in judgment, and your knowledge of
the world is very, very limited."
"Do you know everything?" she sarcas
"Mrs. Bowser," he replied, as he folded
his hands under his coattails and assumed
his favorite attitude, "there are probably
one or two things I don't knowl I don't
claim to know it all, and I don't say yon
know nothing whatever. The husband
who does not, however, know forty times
as much as his wife would be considered a
stick of a man. Did you go out this morn
"Was your bonnet taken off your head?"
"Lucky—very lucky! You are to be con
gratulated. I don't"
"Mr. Bowser, where's your watch?" she
"My watch, Mrs. Bowser—my watch is—
He dropped his hand to find the chain,
but it was not there. He felt for the
watch, but it waa gone.
"Did you leave it at the jeweler's?" she
asked, as he stood with open mouth and
stared at her.
"Jeweler's! No! It'sgone! I've lost it!
I've been robbed!" 1m shouted, as he danced
"It can't be. Feel your pockets."
"Pockets! Pockets! Do you 'spose I
carry my watch in my coattail pocket? I
tell you I've been robbed!"
"Well, don't take on so. Your wallet is
safe, isn't it?"
"G-gone!" he gasped, as he put his hand
up—"watch and wallet both gone!"
"You must have been robbed in some
crowd," she suggested.
"Robbed! Crowd! Robbed! Of course
I've been robbed!" he shouted as he pranced
about. "Git that infernal cat off that
lounge and lemme lay down, for I'm so
weak I can't stand upl Where is that cam
She ran for the bottle as he flopped down,
and for the next three minutes he had his
nose in the opening.
"You ought to go to the police at once,"
she finally said.
"G-gonel G-gone!" he gasped.
"But how could you have been robbed?"
"I dunno! Hold the bottle a little high
"You are so careful, you know."
"You never mislay anything or forget
"And never lose anything, and have so
much worldly wisdom."
"Oh! my head!"
"I can't make it out. I am so careless
that I might lose a shoestring in moving
here from Detroit, but you"
"Don't talk to mcl Over $600 gone!"
"A woman tried to steal my reticule in
Buffalo and I had her arrested, but it
seems that you"
"Gone! Gone!" he groaned.
"Haven't you no idea of when it was
taken?" she persisted.
"Well, I am sorry, but this will be a
great lesson to you. You will be more"
"Mrs. Bowserl" he interrupted, as he
suddenly sat up, "I see through it all now.
It's as plain as daylight!"
"What do you mean?"
"I thought it necessary this morning to
give you a little advice. I felt it to be my
duty as a husband. This is your way of
"Why, Mr. Bowser!"
"Don't why Mr. Bowser mcl It's as
plain as that chair over there!"
"How could I rob you or tell any one
else to?" she demanded.
"Why, Mr. Bowser!"
"Don't why Mr. Bowser mcl It's as
plain as that chair over there!"
"How could I rob you or tell any one
else to?" she demanded.
"Never yo* mind! I see it all! It's all
right, Mrs.-Bowser —all right! Just let go
this camphor bottle and take a scat in the
other room! A husband will bear a great
deal from the woman he loves, but when
crowded too far he turns at bay. I have
turned. As soon as I feel a little bit better
we will come to an understanding, and
you can probably take tho noon train for
your mother's in Detroit. Robbed! Plun
dered! But I see through it and know my
duty!"--M. Quad iv New York World.

DR. WOH !
The Eminent Chinese Physician.
Dr. Woh's life work has been from early youth one of persistent and untiring
observation, study and investigation, as fully as lay in his power to perfect him
self in all branches of the art of healing human sickness and disease. Born in
China, of influential parents, of a family whose ancestors have been for genera
tions deservingly renowned as leading physicians, Dr. Woh naturally followed
in the footsteps of his fathers. In China he has practiced his profession for
several years, being at one time a physician in the Imperial Hospital, and in
America for a long time his great number of patients, his wonderful and many
cures, and the great list of letters from grateful and thankful patrons now prove
him to be a remarkable and successful healer of sickness and all diseases.
